Via my colleague @Robert Morales: Lakers’ Jeremy Lin is on post-All-Star break roll, gives thanks to ‘God’ bit.ly/18zyLFo

Earl K. Sneed

After the Nets surged in front by as many as 12, the @Dallas Mavericks have inched back into the game but trail 73-65 with 3:35 in the 3rd.

Adam Zagoria

Minnesota's Richard Pitino & Kimani Young will see several NYC recruits tomorrow including 2015 Malik Ellison & 2016 @ShamorieP

Lenn Robbins

Great! TO by Lionel Hollins..#nets were getting carried away..Lead down to 73-65..Need a good possession..3:35 left in the 3rd. #Mavs

Paul Garcia

Correction, the Spurs lead the Suns 51-24 at half.

Jeff McDonald

Parker is not making shots. But he's at least looking more decisive, to my eyes. Had a drive and dump to Duncan earlier that seemed vintage

Devin Kharpertian

The Nets have four wing players on the floor and Brook Lopez shoots a quick 18-footer. Again, I don’t get it.

Paul Garcia

Spurs' Offense in 2Q: 27 points, 44% shooting, 3 TOs only, 6 ast on 10 FGM. SA defense in 2Q: 11 points for PHX, 4/22 shooting, 6 TOs

Dan McCarney

My favorite thing at Taco Cabana? Waving on my way by en route to Taco Palenque.

Earl K. Sneed

Nonsportsman-like technical foul call for grabbing the net. First time I've ever heard that call, but it worked out for the @Dallas Mavericks.

Jaryd Wilson

We're now 3-0 on #HawksFanTakeover nights. Great job getting the hashtag trending nationwide everybody! Tweets were awesome.

Devin Kharpertian

Plumlee called for a goaltend and a technical for inadvertently hitting the net? Is that the rule?

John Schuhmann

The Lakers (3 straight) & Knicks (2 straight) are both on winning streaks. The end is near.

Paul Garcia

Half: Kawhi Leonard: 11 points, 6 boards, 3 steals, 2 blocks. Danny Green: 12 points. Aron Baynes: 10 points, 6 boards.

Jeff McDonald

Per @Paul Coro, that's a new Suns record for fewest points in a half. Congratulations?

Paul Coro

The Suns set a franchise record for the lowest-scoring half. Record was 25 vs. SAC in 2001. SA 51-24. PHX: 8-43 FG (18.6%). #SunsVsSpurs

Paul Garcia

Half: Spurs 52, Suns 24. SA defense holds PHX to 11 points in 2Q, 24 at half is franchise low for PHX per @Paul Coro. PHX 8/43 shooting.

Dan McCarney

Spurs up 51-24 at the break. Phoenix is shooting 8 for 43, 18.6 percent. Point total is a franchise low, apparently.

Charles F. Gardner

Giannis scoreless in 18 first-half minutes and did not attempt a shot. Hasn't looked same since all-star break.

Jeff McDonald

Danny Green nails a 26-footer at the horn. Spurs take 51-24 lead into break. Fitting end to the half.

Lenn Robbins

#Nets have pushed lead to 71-59..now 62..Shooting lights out because they are making the extra pass..@Markel Brown not a rookie tonight

Jon Krawczynski

Z-Bo is in it now. 5 straight for Grizz and beating up the smaller Wolves in the paint

Earl K. Sneed

Back-to-back threes by Williams and Johnson had the Nets up 71-59 until that Aminu triple. #DALvsBKN

Paul Coro

The Suns are in danger of setting a franchise record for least points in a half. The record is 25. #SunsVsSpurs

Dan McCarney

So this is Max Contract Leonard: 9 pts, 6 rebs, 3 stls, 2 blks in 1st half.

Earl K. Sneed

Deron Williams has caught fire. He has 22 pts on 9-of-11 shooting and 4 of 5 from three. Nets lead the @Dallas Mavericks 68-59. #DALvsBKN

Lenn Robbins

Back in Texas where he grew up, @Deron Williams playing terrific..Now w 22 points on back to back 3's..Was a state wrestling champ, too #Nets

Tim MacMahon

Deron Williams (22 points midway through the third) is worth every penny tonight.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams with 22 points midway through the third quarter. Nets up on the Mavericks 68-59. Guys,

Royce Young

Some questions about a late-game crucial possession by Lou Williams. http://t.co/5pbcvDXL2h

Mike Monroe

Analytic introduced at Sloan measures individual D, shows how tough Kawhi makes it to shoot from perimeter; Bledsoe discovering it 1st hand

Mike Richman

To quote Aldridge: "I do what I do." Even with two bad thumbs.

Charles F. Gardner

Jazz has 15 TOs leading to 15 Bucks points.

Steve Popper

Okay big brains at Sloan - explain that. Knicks over Raptors. Shved, Amundson, Galloway. Forget it, I'm asking Charles Barkley.

Jeff McDonald

Halftime will probably be good for Suns to regroup. Right now, body language doesn't look like a team that's going to roar back.

Geoff Calkins

See? It's relentless. RT @MamaChockley: CJP is overdue for that haircut tho

Paul Garcia

Kawhi joins Baynes in double-digit scoring before half with 11 points now. SA by 24.

Brad Rock

My view. http://t.co/gxebUgzk0E

Geoff Calkins

Tulsa leads, 66-64. Memphis ball with 38 left.

Gery Woelfel

Antetokounmpo, who has been in a horrendous shooting slump, didn't take a single shot in 18 minutes in 1st half.

Payal Doshi

The Raptors need to get out of the 5-game funk. RT @Matt Moore: That just about covers it. http://t.co/sJf0MP48As

Mike Richman

LaMarcus Aldridge has 9 double-doubles in 12 games since injuring his thumb with basically no drop off in production http://t.co/gXelQsu2rB

Charles F. Gardner

HT: Jazz 47, Bucks 40. Ilyasova with 10 points and Middleton 10 for Bucks, who are shooting 44.7%. But 15 TOs lead to 14 Jazz points.

Adi Joseph

Langston Galloway just had his #TrueYankee moment.

John Schuhmann

Galloway is now 6-for-10 on clutch 3s this season, tying Melo (6-for-16) for the team lead.

Royce Young

That just about covers it. http://t.co/C3wGYk3pnf

Jaryd Wilson

What a win for the guys! Without 3 starters, we fend off Miami for a big 93-91 road victory. http://t.co/wJVkbLVakr

Paul Garcia

Parker gets on the scoreboard after the direct pass from Manu. SA by 22, largest lead of the night.

Dan McCarney

Manu is dropping some dimes tonight. Another gorgeous feed underneath, spoon feeds Parker. Five assists for him.

Payal Doshi

You and me both. RT @Sid_Seixeiro: I need a moment. #raptors

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors lose their 5th straight game, a season-most, to the league-worst 12-46 Knicks. Rock. Bottom.

Chris Vivlamore

Final: Hawks 93, Heat 91. Playoff magic number down to 3. #ATLHawks

Ted Davis

#MILvUTA Hf Time in Utah Jazz 47 Bucks 40. Bucks were down 14 @620wtmj

Steve Luhm

UNLV loses by 18 at Utah State; five days later beats Wyoming by 12 at home. No advantage playing MWC tournament at Thomas & Mack, right?

Devin Kharpertian

Hey, if you want to see a Deron Williams that kind of looks like a Deron Williams you saw in a past life, turn on Nets-Mavericks

Chris Vernon

Tigers on one screen. Grizzlies on the other. Both gonna make me barf

Ethan J. Skolnick

Final results: Heat lose by 2 to team resting 3 starters; guy next to me friend zoned by girl while buying drinks & dinner. About the same.

Aaron Falk

Halftime: Jazz 47, Bucks 40. Burke leads all scorers with 12 points. Ilyasova has 11 for Milwaukee.

Tony Jones

Jazz up 47-40 at halftime. Trey Burke leading the way with 12 points and three assists

Charles F. Gardner

Snyder took Gobert out of game for rest of half.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs are 2:26 minutes from holding the Suns to back-to-back quarters with less than 20 points. PHX currently has 11 in 2Q.

Ryan Wolstat

Langston Galloway with the actual dagger. Yet again, Vasquez can’t keep his man in front of him … kickout for three. Rinse and repeat.

Barry Jackson

... Whiteside 14 points, 24 boards. Heat 0-2 when Whiteside has 24 boards this year. Tied for 2nd most rebounds in Heat game. Seikaly had 34

Surya Fernandez

Heat lose 93-91 to the Hawks despite Chalmers' 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Josh Lewenberg

Langston Galloway dagger. Never mind.

Paul Coro

Markieff Morris is emphatically clapping his hands & talking loudly in the time-out huddle. Hornacek let him go til he started. #SunsVsSpurs

Mike Mazzeo

Galloway makes like Jet Terry. The Knicks are about to win. That missed 360 by DeMar kinda loomed large, huh.

Charles F. Gardner

Zaza super hot at Gobert and jawing at him. Double techs called by Ron Garretson on centers. Maybe a fire-up tactic?

Joseph Goodman

FINAL: Hawks 93, Heat 91.

Barry Jackson

Heat loses 93-91 to Hawks, now 25-33,10-17 at home; 23 Heat TOs (Deng 8). Walker shoots 3-16;Dragic & Deng 2-7; Beasley 4-12.

Jeff McDonald

What I'm learning: Spurs can get by with either Parker or Leonard shooting poorly. But not both. Leonard's been great tonight. Spurs up 20.

John Schuhmann

Langston Galloway is the clutchest.

Aaron Falk

Rudy hit Pachulia with an elbow. Then both 27s get hit with Ts.

Royce Young

Quite the missed dunk by Lou Amundson vine.co/v/O2EEpb7lWHb

Chris Vernon

Look at Pastner drawin up the play in timeout! Oh wait, he is just talkin

Dan McCarney

Totally different players, but he does remind me a ton of Big Game James every once in a while.

Lang Whitaker

#ATLSHAWTY Hawks tied a hand behind their back by resting 3 starters but still won. 💵🇺🇸💵🇺🇸💵🇺🇸

Paul Garcia

9 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 block for Kawhi now. Parker was more aggressive in attacking for a layup, but he missed the shot.

Josh Lewenberg

Knicks led by 12 less than 5 mins ago. Pat's put-back cuts Raps deficit to 2 w/ 33.2s left. This would be ugly but Raps desperately need it

Brian Mahoney

Knicks were about to basically wrap it up until Amundson missed a dunk. Now Raptors within 2, 33 seconds left.

Dan McCarney

Kawhi Worthy swoops to the hoop.

Royce Young

So close, Lou. So close. http://t.co/NUu4HJ8BXD

Andy Greder

That emphatic Zach LaVine dunk was brought courtesy of the 23rd Memphis turnover. That number is the most #Twolves have forced this season.

Brad Rock

I have a 6-11 guy in the row in front of me. Everyone else over 6-10 is on the court. #Utes

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine lift-off, with Vince watching from the bench

Dan McCarney

Mmm, nice half-court bounce pass by Bledsoe.

Charles F. Gardner

Hayward shows his ups on dunk. Jazz leads 45-35 with 1:39 left in half. Burke having big half with 12 points off bench.

Tim MacMahon

Monta Ellis doesn't cross halfcourt on D. Nets get a wide-open 3 off a tipout. Rick Carlisle calls timeout, resists urge to shout.

Lenn Robbins

Great defensive play by @Alan Anderson leads to a @Deron Williams 3. 57-53 #Nets TO #Mavs..10-2 run to start the 2nd

Earl K. Sneed

Deron Williams for three, and Carlisle calls a timeout with the @Dallas Mavericks in a 57-53 hole and 8:55 left in the 3rd. #DALvsBKN

Devin Kharpertian

Amar’e Stoudemire, used to red wine baths, gets beer instead in courtside crash during Nets-Mavericks bkga.me/18zx76O

Paul Garcia

After starting 0/5 from three, Danny Green helps the Spurs sink their first three. SA back up 20. Green has 9 points.

Andy Greder

Gary Neal now with 16 points, including 3 of 4 from deep. Flip Saunders was singing his praises before the game. #Twolves

Chip Crain

I hope you guys are following our guy @Energy_515 - giving @Memphis Grizzlies fans great content on the @iowaenergy!

Tony Jones

The Jazz up 45-35 with 1:39 remaining in the first half

Dan McCarney

Parker won't be back, like that's a permanent distinction, until he starts hitting that mid-range shot on the regular. Just missed, 0 for 5.

Paul Garcia

Suns are giving Parker the jumper but he still can't connect. He's now 0/5 shooting in the game, 0/4 on jumpers.

Devin Kharpertian

If Deron Williams’s acceleration has been stuck on 30 this year, it’s like a 65-70 now.

Jody Genessy

Pretty sure teams are starting to shoot it at Rudy Gobert like hockey players do at a goalie. They just hope for a favorable deflection.

Andrew Keh

Is that rim regulation size

Jon Krawczynski

Grizz shooting 56 percent and lead 42-24 in paint. But 22 TOs have led to 30 MIN points to help Wolves overcome 39%. 77-76 MIN

Earl K. Sneed

Joe Johnson with the jumper, and the Nets take a 52-51 lead. #DALvsBKN

Paul Coro

In search of something, anything, Hornacek now goes to Thornton. A 12-man rotation. SA 39-22. #SunsVsSpurs

Jeff McDonald

Pop thinks refs are bailing out an out-of-control Eric Bledsoe right now. I kind of agree.

Geoff Calkins

Just more evidence of the kind of savage criticism the man receives in this crazed city. RT @_bballjones: Josh Pastner needs a haircut.

Paul Garcia

Spurs point in the paint: 22. Suns total points: 20. SA leads 39-20 with 4:38 left in 2Q.

Tony Jones

Utah's defense right now is getting really good

Aaron Falk

That was the inverse of the Trevor Booker alley oop.

Jody Genessy

Snyder was livid with Joe Ingles after that ill-fated fast break, quickly yanked him for Elijah Millsap.

Aaron Falk

A borderline Shaqtin' series. RT @AllThatAmar: can someone vine that rare triple turn over #MILatUTA

Dan McCarney

Bad choice by Kawhi. Passes to Duncan in a crowd, made the great catch but had no room to dribble. Offensive foul.

Michael Grange

Barge was born for moments like these ...

Chris Vivlamore

Heat fans headed for the exit. Hawks 91, Heat 83 with 29.7 seconds left. #ATLHawks

Tony Jones

Trey Burke is out here undressing people right now

John Schuhmann

That Bargnani trade is going to haunt the Raptors & their fans for a good 30 seconds after tonight's performance.

Josh Lewenberg

To be clear, Raps are 25-12 with DeRozan, 12-9 without. They're not better without him, they need to get him right, somehow.

Chris Vernon

If Nick King does not come back into the game...

Jon Krawczynski

Tony Allen leaking out like Corey Brewer

Gery Woelfel

Since jettisoning Brandon Knight, the Bucks offense has been offensive.

Steve Popper

With that Bargnani dagger I can not believe @Marc Berman is not here to proclaim, "Take that, M..." Ah, I can't do it even as a joke.

Paul Garcia

Spurs turnover = Suns bucket on the other end. SA lead cut to 16.

Mike Mazzeo

Bargnani turnaround. He has 18 points (!). Timeout Toronto.

Ryan Wolstat

Of course Andrea Bargnani drops the dagger.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs up 18, and still haven't connected from 3-point range. And Parker remains scoreless. Playing D, protecting ball can go a long way.

Earl K. Sneed

Nets outshot the @Dallas Mavericks in the half, 54.3% to 50%, but the Mavs have a 20-19 rebounding edge & 17 pts off 11 Nets turnovers. #DALvsBKN

Paul Garcia

Spurs lead by 18 with 6:25 until half. Kawhi has 7 points, 5 boards, 2 steals, 1 block. Baynes 10 points, 6 rebounds, 1 block.

Rick Bonnell

Might've seen worst flop ever in Arizona-Utah game. Arizona kid turned to post and Utah kid became a piñata. Why do college refs enable this

Paul Coro

The Suns went 7:51 without making a field goal. They make two and Pop calls time out. SA 35-15, 6:25 til half. #SunsVsSpurs

Charles F. Gardner

Bucks turn it over and Jazz making them pay with dunk by Booker. Nine turnovers for 12 Jazz points.

Steve Aschburner

Think maybe the refs forgot KG's 1st T when he got 2nd? No problem for GP & Sonics on 3/5/02: http://t.co/MvtrxL1Qx7

David Locke

Jazz lead it by 12 - 39-27 with 6:14 left in the 1st half. 12 point lead is a lot in a low scoring game. #MILatUTA

Tony Jones

Ingles with the oop to Booker for two, and the Jazz lead is at 39-27 with 6:14 remaining in the first half

Andy Greder

End 3Q: #Grizzlies 72, #Twolves 70. Kevin Garnett ejected after 2nd tech foul call, but Minnesota doesn't go away, narrowing Memphis' lead.

Paul Garcia

10 first half points for the Baynes off the bench. SA back up 20.

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan gets beat off the dribble, JV comes over to help, gets called for his 6th foul and that'll end his night. Pat in for him.

Royce Young

Lou Amundson blocks Valanciunas on one end, dunks over Knicks on the other. KNICKS! youtube.com/watch?v=lC0N5f…

Mark Followill

Mavs lead Nets 51-47 on @FSSouthwest at half. Good stuff from bench, Amar'e Stoudemire leads Mavs w/ 9 pts, Al-Farouq Aminu 7 pts, 4 stls

Jerry Zgoda

Grizzlies 72, Wolves 70 after three quarters

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas fouls out with 3:11 remaining. Raptors down six.

Jody Genessy

Trevor Booker with another play of the game! #MILatUTA vine.co/v/O2EPwhdAXgD

Jeff McDonald

Pop hates being up 20 in the first half but Suns are gonna have to help themselves a bit

Dan McCarney

20-point game in PHX. Suns are 4 for 28.

Aron Phillips

Krzyzewskiville after the game. http://t.co/GUZw5tNODc

Josh Lewenberg

Back-to-back Vasquez 3-balls cuts the Knicks 12-point lead in half. 3:29 to go.

Paul Garcia

20 point game, Kawhi has 7 points.

Dan McCarney

That really was a great contest by BAYNES. Can't make a clean vertical challenge any better than that.

Charles F. Gardner

Ilyasova's errant 3 sticks on the top of the backboard. That kind of night for Bucks so far.

Jason Walker

I’ve haven’t been tweeting non-fantasy tweets because I might’ve spent the whole game fawning over Hassan Whiteside.

Andy Greder

Ryan Saunders bleeding with Gorgui Dieng to calm down after foul call on Marc Gasol after five technical fouls have been called in game.

Jeff McDonald

We are three minutes into the second quarter, and the Suns have made four field goals. They have missed 23.

Joseph Goodman

Whiteside's 24 rebounds ties his season high.

Aaron Falk

Ball gets stuck on the top of the backboard. This is our best chance to see Giannis on Rudy's shoulders.

Paul Garcia

Again, post All-Star Break, Phoenix has been the 2nd best offense in the league. Being held to 13 points early through 2 quarters by SA.

Dan McCarney

Leonard already up to 6 pts, 4 rebs with 1 block, 1 steal.

Paul Coro

Apologies to Valley hoop fans who watched Thursday's ASU-Utah 1st half and are subject to this 1st half. SA 32-13, 8:54 in 2nd. #SunsVsSpurs

Ben Bolch

The rooftop parking lot across from my hotel looks exactly like shootout scene from Fargo, snow and everything. Kinda freaking me out.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs are on an 8-0 run to start the 2Q. SA defense holding Suns to 4/27 shooting and 6 turnovers. Kawhi is locking down Bledsoe.

Ira Winderman

Whiteside's 24 rebounds tie his Heat season high.

Jon Krawczynski

And Joerger gets one too. AND YOU GET A T! AND YOU GET A T! AND YOU GET A T!

Tony Jones

Jazz up 30-21 with 8:59 remaining in the first half

Chris Vernon

You gotta be kidding me with the foul/tech on M Gasol. Booooooooooooo

Jerry Zgoda

Gasol gets T'ed up now. Crowd trying to egg him into a second. I'd take that trade. Joerger gets a T too

Jon Krawczynski

Awful. Marc Gasol just wanted an explanation on a call and James Williams just T'd him up.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi, that's just not fair. Spurs go up by 19 now with the Kawhi dunk in open court.

Jeff McDonald

The Spurs are just out-energizing these guys right now. Funny how blah a team can look (this time PHX) when the ball isn't going in.

Mike Richman

Trail Blazers are one of 3 teams (Warriors and Hawks) that rank in the top in Off and Def efficiency. Portland is 4th on D, 10th on O.

Geoff Calkins

Tigers were down by a point when King, Burrell came in at 14:20. Now lead by nine.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards locker room still talking about the dress.

Jarrod Rudolph

Oh I remember K.O.B.E and @Kobe Bryant's verse in one of Brian McKnight's songs. Thank God for basketball #Muse

Jeff McDonald

It's honestly difficult where Spurs would be without Baynes, who was signed like two days before training camp or something.

Paul Garcia

Spurs by 17 early in 2Q.

Jeff McDonald

I think the last time the Suns made a basket, Steve Nash shot it.

Dan McCarney

Am I watching BAYNES play basketball (8 pts, 5 rebs off the bench), or the pit fighting montage from Conan?

Andrew Keh

Lou Amundson is an autodidact jazz pianist #amundsonfacts

Paul Garcia

The Spurs take a 15 point lead after Baynes' free throws. He has 8 points off the bench. PHX recently beat OKC.

Ryan Ward

The more games I watched… the more I saw a younger version of MJ emerge. Kobe had all the tools. Began to love every part of his game.

Jeff McDonald

Baynes has 8 points and five boards in 7 minutes off the bench.

Paul Coro

And #sunsfieldgoalwatch has begun. The Suns have not made a field goal in almost five minutes. Goodwin gets a chance. SA 28-13 #SunsVsSpurs

Jon Krawczynski

Green just tried to bully Wiggins on the block but the kid stood his ground.

Tony Jones

Rodney Hood tried to punch on Miles Plumlee...

Jeff McDonald

Aron Baynes wins this year's "Patty Mills Award" as Aussie who couldn't get off the bench last yr, but now has become kind of indispensable.

Jerry Zgoda

Consecutive sellouts, 19356

Paul Garcia

Baynes has such an advantage in the paint right now. Just had to stand under the rim for the offensive board. SA w/ 16 points in paint.

Brian Mahoney

Raptors now getting torched by the immortal combination of Shved to Amundson. Knicks up 94-81.

Ira Winderman

Hmm, Chalmers out? He's been playing well, albeit a bit wild.

Geoff Calkins

Tigers are guarding their asses off.

Al Iannazzone

The Knicks are up 13 on Toronto. Their offense looks good and they're defending. Who knew?

Paul Coro

After starting the quarter by traveling, not running the play and shooting an airball, Green is replaced by Bledsoe, SA 26-13. #SunsVsSpurs

Steve Popper

Knicks are in the midst of their best 2-minute stretch since Game 2...Shved, Amundson, Thomas, Larkin, Smith. ... I can't explain it either.

Lenn Robbins

#Nets can win this game IF, they cut down on turnovers,,,10 in the 1st half. 51-47 #Mavs @Deron Williams w 12 @Mason Plumlee w 10

Ira Winderman

Wade and Whiteside back. But Dragic out (?).

Mike Mazzeo

The crazy thing is the Raptors could probably lose out and still win the Atlantic.

Brian Mahoney

Raptors lose this and they fall into a tie with Chicago for second in the East. Cleveland would be just a half-game back in fourth.

Steve Popper

If the Knicks win a second game in a row they are going to have to extend the Sloan Conference to let the greatest minds figure out how.

Peter Vecsey

I'm at a loss for a response...

Paul Garcia

1Q: Spurs 24, Suns 13. SA defense holds PHX to 4/21 shooting w/ 3 turnovers. SA outscores PHX 14-4 in paint. Splitter 6 points. SA 48% FG

Paul Coro

SA 24, PHX 13 after 1Q. The Suns' worst two scoring 1st quarters of the year have come at home against the Spurs. PHX: 4-21 FG. #SunsVsSpurs

Jeff McDonald

Spurs' offense is looking more familiar, with ball moving, guards attacking. If they could make open 3s (0 for4), might be running away.

Mike Mazzeo

The Raptors are in real danger of losing to the 11-46 Knicks. Would be five Ls in a row.

Brian Mahoney

Knicks are playing really hard. Slumping Raptors are playing really tight. Knicks 86, Raptors 79, 7:25 to go.

Andrew Keh

Who would read a "long form" story about Lou Amundson's man-bun maintenance... lmk

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas and DeRozan back to try to prevent Knicks from closing within 24.5 games of the Raptors.

Aaron Falk

End of 1: Jazz 26, Bucks 18. Trey Burke has 8 points off the bench. Dante Exum, Joe Ingles & Jakob Poeltl all sitting on two fouls.

Tim MacMahon

Rajon Rondo has a nice stat line in the first half: 6 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds. But he has Mavs' worst +/- (-10).

Earl K. Sneed

Aminu with the cross-court pass to Monta for a three, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 51-46. #DALvsBKN

Ryen Russillo

What the hell ref, guy is asleep in front of you. Call it.

Jon Krawczynski

KG's ejection has taken the wind out Target Center's sails. Grizz pulling away up 67-54 in third

Tony Jones

The Jazz lead the Bucks 26-18 at the end of the first quarter

Chris Vivlamore

Kyle Korver has tied Steve Smith (549) for fourth on Hawks' all-time 3-point list. #ATLHawks

Ryan Ward

I remember screaming at the TV. Directing all my anger at Del Harris: “Give the ball to Van Exel!!” Wasn’t a Kobe fan at that point.

Jody Genessy

Trey is to Triceratops as Gobert is to Gobstopper.

Vincent Goodwill

You’d think but… RT @cedhorton: good thing this is your Twitter profile and you can tweet about whatever you want..geesh

Geoff Calkins

To be clear: No idea if King is going to transfer, but he's obviously not been happy about playing time and the Lawsons are coming.

Charles F. Gardner

Sloppy turnover by O'Bryant leads to break for Utah and 2 FTs for Burke.

Derek Bodner

Punishing tankers by adding more randomness to lottery, to me, akin to taxing homeless. Would love panel devoted to actually fixing tanking.

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert exits with 7 points, 6 rebounds and 3 blocked shots in the first quarter

Anthony Slater

Hopping on @SiriusXMNBA quick to talk Russell Westbrook and some Thunder hoops.

Tony Jones

Trey Burke transition opportunities

Tony Jones

Trey Burke knocking down shots

Josh Lewenberg

Through 19 minutes of action JV had attempted 1 shot. He's taken 5 in 4 minutes since. Keep feeding him until Knicks/fouls take him out

Steve Popper

They mean now? RT @netw3rk: I blacked out for five minutes after this happened RT @ToddNeece: Clyde just compared Shved to Pete Maravich...

Ryan Ward

Watching Kobe Bryant’s MUSE. Showing Game 5 against the Jazz back in 1997. Four airballs. Still makes me cringe. That was rough.

Jonah Ballow

Shved autocorrects to Saved...

Mike Bresnahan

Second part of series on possible Lakers draft picks...if they don't keep winning games. Kentucky's Cauley-Stein: latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Geoff Calkins

Nick King with the drive and bucket. He's playing well. Tigers lead, 53-47.

Ryan Wolstat

I have no idea what Norm Macdonald is talking about, but his Twitter stories are fantastic.

John Gonzalez

Mike Breen and Clyde Frazier are discussing whether Alexey Shved reminds them of Pete Maravich

Payal Doshi

It’s the little things. RT @NickMetallinos: MSG moments: The rise of Alexey Shved

Charles F. Gardner

Henson having a hard time getting that lefty hook off against Gobert. Jazz big man just made 3rd block - 2 on Henson.

Steve Popper

In what will forever be known as "The Shved game..."

Fred Kerber

If #Knicks don't lose again they get 36 wins. In East that could B enough. Let scoreboard watching start in earnest. What else ya got to do?

Josh Lewenberg

JV picks up his 5th foul early in the 4th Q. Casey leaving him in. He's been the Raps offence for most of the last 5 minutes

Charles F. Gardner

O'Bryant also enters for Ilyasova. No Dudley tonight due to sore left knee.

Kurt Helin

Dwight Howard making “slow but steady” progress in knee rehab dlvr.it/8n4DVg

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo has 6 pts, 2 rebs & 5 assists after that jumper. #DALvsBKN

Jerry Zgoda

Garnett played 15 minutes, had 6 pts on 3/4 shooting, 3 rebs, 2 assists and at least 3 steals

Aaron Falk

Two absolute truths of a Jazz home game: Gobert is going to do something awesome & @Tony Jones is going to spill his Coke. Check & Check.

Tom Moore

#NBA column: Will #Sixers begin developing core group next season? bit.ly/1EAiTi3 #76ers #NBATradeDeadline

Earl K. Sneed

9 pts on 3-of-5 shooting for Amar'e Stoudemire in 10 minutes off the bench. #DALvsBKN

Stefan Bondy

It just looked like a super douchey reaction from Mason Plumlee on that beer-spilling collision in DC. #netsonyes He's not douchey.

Charles F. Gardner

Mayo getting ready to enter after this timeout. Game tied at 18-18 after Trey Burke sinks 3-pointer.

Adi Joseph

Kevin Garnett isn't really on your team until he's been ejected.

Jon Krawczynski

Huge, huge development there.

Adam Zagoria

Final in Union County: Linden 60, Roselle Catholic 56 Otis Livingston scored 13 of his 21 in the 4th for the Tigers. Briscoe finished w/ 21

Dan McCarney

BAYNES, the Alabaster Barbarian, whistled for the offensive foul.

Andy Greder

Boos rained as Kevin Garnett has been tossed. He drew a second technical foul for somewhat spiking the ball. Bennett Salvatore T'd him up.

Geoff Calkins

Nichols: Sprained the same ankle, done for the night.

Vincent Goodwill

It’s smooth. He doesn’t take a lot of space to do his thing RT @Tony Jones: Khris Middleton can play.....love his game

Chris Vernon

Garnett ejected!!!! Hahahahaha

Aaron Falk

Bucks' opponents average about 17 turnovers a game. Midway through the first, the Jazz have coughed up the ball six times already.

Jerry Zgoda

Bennett Salvatore just Ts up KG for slapping ball down hard, his 2nd of night and he's ejected. Talk about giving fans what they paid to see

Paul Garcia

Manu with 2 assists, as he feeds the Baynes. SA goes up 11. Baynes should have an advantage vs. lighter PHX frontcourt.

Dan McCarney

Mentioned that Manu is the same way. He immediately pipes up, "Man, they hate that guy around here." Moral of the story: PS losses sting.

Ira Winderman

At 0 for 5 from the field, Deng hits a 3-pointer that draws Heat within 65-60.

Royce Young

KG unnecessarily ejected for slamming the ball in frustration at himself for his 2nd tech

Ryan Wolstat

Feed Valanciunas the rest of the way. Look at who he is going up against. Makes sense, no?

Dan McCarney

One of my more favorite exchanges, talking to the PHX AP reporter about what a good guy Goran Dragic was to deal with.
