Some historians consider Drew Gooden to be the original Andray Blatche.

Malone definitely earned the first tech, the second one came quick.
Well that escalated quickly. Michael Malone ejected w/4:42 left in 2nd period
That was Eric Lewis who tossed Malone.

And both of them LOVED working for Pat Quinn. Not always true that public figures are beloved/respected in private, but Quinn was one. 3/
Pelicans' starters look sluggish tonight, especially on the defensive end.
Also: It's nice to see Stan Van Gundy is still only mildly pleased at positive plays, and demonstratively dismayed at the bad ones.
Cameron Bairstow is starting in place of Joakim Noah for the Bulls tonight. He's played a total of 11 NBA minutes to this point.

But I've now heard from two people who worked with Quinn who were young and new in their careers, people who I respect /2
One of the best left-handed shooters ever, Michael Redd, gets a standing O from the crowd. Us lefties got a great stroke

I’m glad Michael Jordan’s not letting the losses in Charlotte get to him. … http://t.co/loypMKk7BC
Not enough designed weakside motion tonight. Wiz did nice things against Cleveland — that’s missing tonight.
I dealt with Pat Quinn only sporadically, but was always impressed. From a distance I simply found him a likeable, impressive man. /1
I didn't even perk up when Shelvin Mack entered this game. It's been so long since he's been gone. Wiz draft class of 2011 lives on.

Ryan Anderson doing a lot of damage around the rim in 2nd qtr, with post-up move, tip-in and two-handed dunk. Anderson 9 pts. Sac 36-31

Heat lead 62-61 at half. Bosh w/ 17, Chalmers w/ 14. Curry had 18, and looks like he's just getting started.
Jeff Withey and Jimmer Fredette have received some DNPs this season, but both on floor more lately. Fredette layup brings NOLA within 32-26
Jimmer Fredette got a chance for a three-point play with free throw coming up.
Most expensive media pregame meal I've ever seen here tonight: $15. Featured item? Sloppy Joes. Where is best late night burger in Denver?
Accounting for 3s, the Warriors are effectively shooting over 70 percent from the floor. And losing. Ridiculous half by the Heat.
So Warriors trim a 16-point deficit to 1 by halftime.
Jimmer Fredette just made nice layup after catching pass from Austin Rivers.
Henson limping off court and Pachulia enters.
The thinner bench is letting the Pelicans back in it. Kings up 32-26 with Jimmer to shoot a FT for New Orleans

Stephen Curry always looks like he’s laying on that turbo button when the ball’s in his hands.
Ben McLemore showing a ton of confidence to start the season. Really coming alive over the past two weeks.
Pelicans made only 30.4 percent of their shots from the field in first quarter. Anthony Davis held to 5 pts and Pelicans 1-6 on 3s
Wizards announce Pierce passing West. Fans rise and cheer. Pierce looks on like they just announced someone left their car lights on.
10. An argument can be made that Mario Chalmers forever changed the NBA landscape. Had he played much better in June, and Miami won...
Greetings everyone from Pepsi Center and welcome aboard to game number 14
The Warriors are now 4-of-10 from the free-throw line.
Especially with Wade out, Chalmers has become the Heat's most vocal player, the one telling everyone else where they should be.
Bucks owners Wes Edens and Marc Lasry here tonight. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver sitting with former Bucks owner Herb Kohl.
9. Rookie report and THTV teaser-Wiggins is quite probably the best shooter in NBA rookie history, based on only the uber-elite athletes.

At the end of 1Q: Kings 27, Pelicans 16. Pelicans shot just 30.4 % from field in the 1Q.
Ryan Anderson drills a 3-ball at the buzzer. 27-16 Kings after 1Q.
Kings lead 27-16 after the first quarter.
Love the VCU fans that think Shaka Smart will turn down elite jobs to stay with the Rams. He's happy, but would still bolt for "right one."
5 dunks and one athletic, O'Dell Beckham like catch and one-handed layup finish for Drummond. 12 and 6, with a blocked shot
Not at all surprised that Anderson made that.
Don't know why Dingle would pull up and attempt that three early in the clock?
End of one: Pistons 31, Bucks 26. Drummond with 12 and 5 and Sanders has 10 and 5. Pistons shooting 54%.
8. I still think Harrison Barnes can be special.
Temple is 2 of 2 in the 3rd quarter. He had been 2 for his last 27 dating back to the loss in Toronto.
6. No, the Wildcats would not beat Philly. But that does not mean Sixers have a chance to be worst ever team.
Kings are without starters Rudy Gay and Darren Collison but having great 1st qtr, up 25-13 late. Sacramento team's been here since Sunday
Drummond and Larry Sanders, both 5-6 from the field, 10-5 boards
And no, Draymond Green is not available in trade, it's all but safe to say - certainly not to Lakers via DPE - just an example of rules
When the Pelicans go to this lineup of Anderson on Cousins, Boogie is gonna eat well
Jimmer Fredette has entered. Just missed his first shot attempt.
Rule of thumb - don't need a DPE to acquire a player making the min - though you do for a player on 3-yr min contract (a la Draymond Green)
7. Antetokounmpo is getting better and better. Game is slowing down for him, clearly.
Warriors on an 8-0 run. Heat lead 54-44, 4:58 left in Q2. Chalmers leads with 14 pts, followed by Bosh (13) and Deng (10).
David Lee is hoping he can play Nov. 30 at Detroit, but he said it's more likely he’ll return at home vs. ORL on Dec. 2 or vs. NOP on Dec. 4
Scola: "They've had so much success around here, they won't even remember who I am."
Spoelstra will need all his timeouts in this one. Curry gets crossed, comes back with 3. Warriors down 10.
Engaging guys, Marc Lasry and Wes Edens. Like two fans--very wealthy fans--owning a team. Passionate about winning in Milwaukee.
Klay three, Steph three and, smartly, Spoelstra timeout.
Had a long(ish) talk with Luis Scola today, who says he'd be surprised if anybody in SA still cares he never got a chance to play for Spurs.
Figured Curry and Thompson weren't going to keep quiet all game.
6. I see lots of kids these days with incredibly quick releases on their shot. They miss most of them, but they r emulating S Curry.
Paul Pierce just passed Jerry West (25,192) for 17th in all-time scoring list. Buckets.
Sanders on offensive boards and already has 10 points.
5. Think about how much J Kidd struggled early with a vet team last year, and how well he is doing now with all those young-uns. Impressive.
I'll have a blog post live on Nash DPE to clarify many of the questions I'm gettting - as far as a list of possible players? working on it
CLEVELAND (AP) _ Ohio attorney suspended as female clients say he secretly hypnotized them for sexual pleasure.
4. My top 4 MVP candidates are Davis, Cousins, Gasol, and Lowry. Curry on the cusp.
Garrett Temple just sank a 3-pointer. His first FG of any kind since Nov. 12.
In Milwaukee: Spent some time with Bucks new ownership. Hope there is a new arena site will be selected within the next two months.
7-2 run cuts Kings' lead to 19-11 and Malone calls timeout. Probably not liking the 3 turnovers in the quarter
Josh McRoberts much more active tonight, appears to be getting into a flow.
Stan Van Gundy praised former Bucks forward Caron Butler prior to game. Said he was unanimously elected team captain.
Ryan Anderson into the game. Kings lead 19-9.
3. A lot of people are now talking about how much Casspi is helping the Kings, but McLemore is a different guy too. Smooth and athletic.
Another dunk from Drummond off feed from KCP. Tied at 22.
Just saw Nene walking around with no limp and wearing a million dollar suit.
2.I wonder if there was any coach in the NBA who did not study how the Spurs had success against the Heat in June. It is a fire-able offense
Napier said the other night that teammates are demanding more aggressiveness from him. Shooting a 20-footer over Bogut should suffice.
If you re attending tonight s Bulls game send me a Twitter pic and i ll retweet it. Go Bulls!
Miami wasting nothing. Shooting 52% from the field, 6/9 threes and 8/9 FTs. Just 3 TOs so far.
Chalmers has outscored the Warriors Curry/Thompson backcourt.
Williams has exceeded his previous career high (11, twice)
Count me extremely impressed with this Kentucky shellacking. Montana State stinks (no fault of Brian Fish). UT Arlington is decent.
Andre Drummond with a blocked shot, runs the floor and catches alley oop dunk. Welcome to the 2014-15 season, Mr. Drummond
"We can go small, smaller and smallest. I guess small, smaller, smallest and midget if we need to.'' -- Mark Cuban on his 4 point guards
With Napier's basket, the Heat are now 6-9 from 3-point range so far.

Napier loses the ball, punches it to McRoberts, ball back to Napier for a 3. Heat up 48-36 on Warriors, 6:50 left in Q2.
The last time the Kings and Pelicans matched up, NO turned the ball over just 6 times. 3 already tonight, all on Kings steals.
Shabazz Napier sets up Andrew Bogut for a 3-pointer. You read that right. Fun stuff so far.
Darius Miller off to tough start in his first start - 0-of-3 from the field. Just missed a driving layup.
Tuesday tweet times. 1. If Ronnie Price played Ramon Sessions in a game of 1 on 1, would anyone come to watch?
And Williams scores again
Mark Williams, just 2-for-15 in Brooklyn over the weekend, is 5-for-6 with a game-high 16 points
Confirming Lakers received exception for injured Steve Nash. Worth $4.85m. Cannot be combined with ~$1.5m exception from Randle injury.
Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer among those in the crowd.
Kings are up 12-2. New Orleans missed 8 of 9 shots, Sessions has 4 points, 2 assists. Had no assists in his other start at Dallas.
Pelicans off to a 1-of-9 shooting start from the field. They are trailing Kings, 12-2 with 6:42 remaining in 1Q.
Two alley-oops for Drummond. That might make it 3 on the year

Sacramento Kings come out aggressive in New Orleans, lead 10-2 early.

No one has to remind Omri Casspi to attack the rim. Kings up 8-2 early, 4 points, 2 rebounds from Casspi.
Ennis: 3 pts, 4 assists, 3 rebounds.
Ennis running the spectrum with his play, but active, very active.
No middle ground for James Ennis tonight. High highs and low lows.
Steve Kerr to one of the Heat's minority partners, sitting in front row: "What a waste of money. You have to look at my a-- the whole game."
Cousins pulling Asik away from the basket with the jumper. Gives Sessions more room to work.
No. 14 VCU 35, Oregon 27. Halftime at Legends Classic consolation game.
Have a feeling that by the time the Bulls get to Boston, Thibs could be simply grunting when asked questions.
Sessions misses two shots at the rim to start the game.
Shaun Livingston will devour Chalmers in the post. This is the problem with being so small.
Bogut back to start the second, and Rush getting some early run.
That was Miami's highest point total for any quarter this season.
Hawks should be up 20. I think the Wizards will figure out how to beat their overload defense, so the lack of cushion is a problem
Heat's 36p in Q1 is their highest in any quarter all year.
36 points are the most the Heat have scored in a quarter this season.
That was the Heat's highest-scoring quarter of the season.
Considering the opponent, that was easily the Heat's best quarter of the season. Hung 36 on the No. 1 defense. Without Dwyane Wade.
Funny thing. Pelicans are a better team, in my opinion, without Eric Gordon.
Heat defense in Q1-- First 4 min: Allowed 16p on 7/8 FGs, forced 0 TOs. Last 8 min: Allowed 14p on 6/13 FGs, forced 3 TOs.
Pelican starters: Jrue Holiday, Tyreke Evans, Darius Miller, Anthony Davis, Omer Asik.
No shortage of points from either team in the first quarter. Heat up 36-30 vs Warriors. Chalmers leads team with 13 points, Deng 8, Bosh 7.
Mario Chalmers, coming off best week of his career, scores 13 in 1st Q, Heat lead Warriors, 36-30. Curry w/ 8.
Wiz shoot 36%, commit 13-14 turnovers, Pierce goes 1 for 8...and they only trail 41-39 at half. Atlanta missed chance for big lead.
So even with Wade sidelined, Heat go for 36 in first quarter, lead Warriors 36-30. Chalmers with 13 points.
Starters for Kings: Ramon Sessions, Ben McLemore, Omri Casspi, Jason Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins. Gay and Collison out with injury.
Mario Chalmers must have collected a star before this game.
Chalmers with 3 of side inbounds. Already with 13 points.
Untertold NBA story: How Norris Cole is coping with not winning the title for the first time in his career this past season.
Get ready to stretch. Pierce moves to PF.
Kings won't have starting G Darren Collison (quadriceps) or F Rudy Gay (Achilles tendinitis) available tonight against Pelicans.
Not reviewing Chalmers' three. It stands.
