5:05 left, #Blazers push lead to 88-77. Blazers are grinding, Celtics are a mess ...

Jared Weiss

#Celtics are shooting 2/14 in the fourth quarter. #Blazers shooting 7/13. 11 point difference.

Ben Bolch

I concur. :) RT @ClippersCentral By the way, more of you should be following @Ben Bolch.

Robert Morales

Carlos Boozer (left shoulder) is a game-time decision for Lakers vs. Nuggets #Lakers

Dwain Price

#Mavs players Chandler Parsons and Devin Harris handed out 250 turkeys today to needed families at Buckner International in Dallas.

Geoff Calkins

Dave Joerger showed Gasol clips of Larry Bird before this season. This was the general idea.

Emily Austen

Pretty sure there's a lid on the #Celtics basket right now. NOTHING is falling for them. Portland leads 88-77 w/ 5:05 to play.

John Schuhmann

Marc Gasol got in the best shape of his life for the World Cup. Grizz reaping the benefits early in the season.

Chip Crain

When @Marc Gasol dunks the crowd goes wild http://t.co/9h0548bS86

Ronald Tillery

Here's what I love about Marc Gasol's dominance tonight: he had 26 pts and 9 rebs before getting his 1st assist. Throw it down big fella!

Bill Oram

Lakers game or AMAs tonight for Nick Young? “He’ll probably try to do both,” Byron Scott said, cracking a smile.

Jared Weiss

#Blazers run now at 16-5 in the first half of the fourth quarter. Lead 88-77.

Ben Bolch

Marc Gasol should be in early season MVP discussions.

Scott Souza

An Avery Bradley night - misses his first 5 shots, makes his next 4, has now missed his last 6. #Celtics down 86-77 w/ 6:43 to go.

Kristina Leahy

Back at my old green stomping grounds. instagram.com/p/vw1Vu1wH51/

Royce Young

Marc Gasol is destroying the Clippers. Passing, scoring, drawing fouls, defensively, everything.

Dan Woike

Lot of frustration on the Clipper sidelines right now after that Gasol dunk. He's got 28

Sam Amick

Marc Gasol, man...

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers was pissed after Marc Gasol drove for that dunk.

Jared Weiss

Celtics finally get to Kaman and triple stuff him.

Mike Trudell

Byron Scott said he isn’t sure just yet if Carlos Boozer (questionable w/shoulder) will play. If not, Ed Davis would start.

Jared Weiss

#Blazers are on a 14-5 run in the first four minutes of the quarter.

Rich Levine

Celtics have done well limiting Lillard and Aldridge tonight but there's only so much you can do against Kaman and Steve Blake.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul did lower his shoulder into Mike Conley on that play. Good call.

Jeff Goodman

West Virginia dominating UConn over last few minutes. Mountaineers have been the tougher team. This group looks more like a Huggins group.

Chip Crain

These teams DO NOT LIKE EACH OTHER. Can you tell? huh? can you?

Anthony Slater

Anthony Morrow is 16-of-54 shooting (29 percent) in the six games since that 28-point outburst in Boston. OKC needs him to bust out of funk.

Rick Bonnell

The description of Gary Neal as just a shooter is so inaccurate.

Jay King

Kelly Olynyk, still scoreless. Just three shots for the Celtics best shooter over 25 minutes.

Chip Crain

"Nobody needs nobody," Marc Gasol.

Rusty Simmons

#Warriors 35, Thunder 28 (8:41, 2nd) OKC opened the 2nd on an 8-2 run, but the Warriors answered with five straight and forced a timeout.

Ben Bolch

Clippers playing better but still down double digits. Going to need a much bigger push to win this game.

Joe Freeman

Right on cue, Joel Freeland erases that fact with a running 9-foot J.

Ben Bolch

"All day. He can't guard you. All day," Clippers assistant Armond Hill yells after another Chris Paul jumper.

Rick Bonnell

Roberts, Neal, Williams, Zeller and Biz to start fourth.

Jessica Camerato

There is something great about Gerald Wallace and Chris Kaman competing in a close game. Nearly 43,000 regular season minutes between them.

Scott Souza

Portland scores first 8 pts of the fourth quarter, and just like that #Celtics face their biggest deficit of night at 80-72 w/ 10:13 left.

Joe Freeman

Chris Kaman (14 pts 5-11 shooting) and Steve Blake (9 pts, 4-7) have scored all of the #Blazers' bench points (23) so far.

Sean Highkin

The Chris Kaman regression is coming at some point. It has to.

Mike Bresnahan

Boozer might not play tonight because of a sore shoulder, Byron Scott said. Ed Davis would start vs. Denver.

Jason Jackson

Nice 14 point swing for the @Charlotte Hornets …. @Miami Heat down 5 heading into the final stanza #HeatLive

Gary Washburn

POR is 14-for-23 from field in second half. #celtics can't score consistently.

Diamond Leung

Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Mitch McGary doing lot of talking from the bench. Reppiing the Warriors, Marreese Speights talking back.

Joe Freeman

A quick 8-0 run by the #Blazers gives them an 80-72 lead with 10:13 left, which feels like 20 points the way this game has been.

Mark Medina

Byron says he still doesn't know if Boozer plays

Gary Washburn

#blazers begin 4Q with an 8-0 run and now lead 80-72 at 10:13 mark.

Erik Gundersen

Dude. RT @danecarbaugh: STEVE “WHITE CHOCOLATE” BLAKE http://t.co/K3JBjrDD33

Rick Bonnell

Hornets 72, Heat 67 end of third.

Surya Fernandez

Hornets outscored the Heat 28-14 in the third quarter.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Hornets lead by 5 entering 4th, in what would be another ugly home loss for Heat. Charlotte shot 10-for-17 in the third.

Barry Jackson

If lose to Patriots,Dolphins at very least must beat Jets twice, Ravens, Vikings to have any real playoff shot.Even that might not be enough

Rick Bonnell

Don't mean to get NFC South-like, but Hornets winning tonight would atone for that loss at home to Orlando Friday as far as division record.

Ira Winderman

Rough third quarter for Heat, go into fourth down 72-67. Chalmers and Deng have cooled, while Jefferson and Walker have become problematic.

Jared Weiss

Zeller is doing a nice job reading Chris Kaman’s footwork. But he isn’t getting any lift to defend the jump hook.

Zac Boyer

Adam Hayward believes he's done for the season. Timetable longer than a month.

Joseph Goodman

#Hornets 72, #Heat 67 entering the fourth quarter.

Jared Weiss

Wes Matthews finally gets in the game, drilling a dagger in Crash’s face.

Royce Young

And another Grizz-Clips "in-a-nutshell" http://t.co/D2pY6Owksk

Gary Washburn

Officials review Blake's 3-pointer, call it a 2. tied at 72 after 3Q

Ben Bolch

No matter what happens, Mike Woodson perpetually has this look on his face like everything is OK by him.

Chip Crain

Blake Griffin is bleeding now from his nose, Yep he is playing @Zach Randolph & the @Memphis Grizzlies http://t.co/HC2ugXTdUr

Joe Freeman

Check that 3rd Q score: After review, officials changed a Blake 3 to a long 2. We're tied 72-72, Blake has 9 pts, 3 asts.

Barry Jackson

Tannehill closes 26 for 36, 228 yards, 104.9 rating. Has topped 100 passer rating in 5 of last 8;Landry:7 catches,50. Miller:12 rushes, 59.

Jared Weiss

#Blazers three earlier in the quarter reduced to a two and it’s now tied at 72 at the start of the fourth.

Sean Highkin

Somehow I don't have confidence in Jack in the Box's ability to pull off sriracha

Rick Bonnell

Biz with a classic moving screen -- a point of emphasis this season.

Dan Woike

Blake Griffin is bleeding and the fans say Griffin is faking it with ketchup.

Diamond Leung

Sprewell dude is right behind the basket and has taken to popping out of his seat right when free throws are released.

Ben Bolch

Bloody nose for Blake Griffin.

Barry Jackson

Dolphins allow 22 points in 4th;outgained 238-101 in 2nd half;allow Manning to post 135.4 rating;just 1 sack,1 QB hit;and allow 5.7 per rush

Gary Washburn

#celtics trail #blazers 73-72 after 3Q. Rondo 14, Sullinger and Green 13; Aldridge 19, Kaman and Batum 12, Blake 9 in 15 min

Rick Bonnell

That was one sloppy turnover by Kemba.

Erik Gundersen

Blazers lead 73-72 after 3.

Sean Highkin

Steve Blake MVP year

Marc D'Amico

It's a tight one at the Garden, as the Blazers lead the Celtics 73-72 after three. Green leads the C's w/ 14, while Rondo/Sully each have 13

Joe Freeman

End of 3rd: #Blazers 73, Celtics 72. LA has 19 pts, Blake has 10 pts, 3 asts off bench. Green has 14 pts for Boston.

Emily Austen

The #Blazers have a one-point lead over the #Celtics heading into the final frame.

Joe Freeman

Guy behind us: "That's not Steve Blake." Actually, it is.

Erik Gundersen

Blake cooking Evan Turner.

Jay King

Steve Blake just made Evan Turner look rather silly.

Joe Freeman

Ladies and gentleman: Steve. Blake.

Jared Weiss

Steve Blake just went temporary Iverson. Very temporary.

Dan Woike

Both teams a doing a lot of complaining to the refs. A lot. More like the Whined House, right?

Ben Bolch

Grizzlies need timeout after Chris Paul three-pointer trims deficit to 62-52. Paul much more aggressive.

Zac Boyer

Gruden on why he went to Jackson as the punt returner: "It's DeSean."

Rick Bonnell

Shabazz Napier was trying to guard Cody Zeller in the post. So that foul was the least of many bad alternatives for Napier.

Rusty Simmons

#Warriors 28, Thunder 20 (end 1) Stephen Curry is 4-of-7 for 12 points. The rest of the Warriors are 5-of-15 for 16 points.

Anthony Slater

End 1Q: Thunder down 28-20 to the Warriors.

Diamond Leung

A lone Warriors fan dressed in what appears to be a Latrell Sprewell jersey/foam finger is distracting Thunder FT shooters by squawking.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Shabazz Napier and Kemba Walker going at each other. Like a practice in Storrs, circa 2011. Heat lead, 67-66.

Zac Boyer

Gruden on defense: "We had guys in positions I didn't know they played."

Robert Morales

Clippers have poor first-half shooting and trail Grizzlies 53-40 at the break insidesocal.com/clippers/2014/… #Clippers

Ethan J. Skolnick

The Dolphins covered, and they tried a creative onside kick. So there's that.

Erik Gundersen

Blazers with 6 turnovers so far in the 3rd quarter, matching their 1st half total.

Sean Highkin

Matt Barnes is slowly losing his mind.

Rick Bonnell

Best I've seen Big Al and Kemba collaborate offensively this season.

Royce Young

Chris Paul decided to show up and the Clips are back within 8.

Zac Boyer

Gruden said Amerson did not play because of a violation of a team rule. Would not elaborate.

Chip Crain

Kevin Durant didn't like that offensive foul call.

Jay King

Gerald Wallace remains one of the toughest dudes in the gym.

Abby Chin

Gerald Wallace doing a number on Chris Kaman defensively. Getting low and Kaman can't find any breathing room! #CelticsTalk

Dan Woike

Matt Barnes to Danny Crawford after a tough call: "What'd I do to you?"

Zac Boyer

Gruden: "He's made strides, but there are a lot of other things that go into the passing game." Cited Moses at LT.

Dan Woike

Executed play results in a Redick 3, and the Clipper bench is on its feet.

Zac Boyer

Gruden: Biggers concussion. Hayward tibial plateau fracture. Redd bruised ribs. Porter strained sternoclavicular joint.

Jared Weiss

Clearly TA has been watching the #Celtics game tonight. RT @danecarbaugh: Tony Allen with his best Rondo impression. vine.co/v/O1hQivggtgY

Rick Bonnell

Double foul for Shannon Brown and Lance Stephenson. Stephenson might get a flop warning for that one.

Abby Chin

#Blazers fans remember seeing a missed layup from Gerald Wallace. But Rajon Rondo makes good to cut the deficit to 2. #CelticsTalk

Ira Winderman

Lance called for his fourth foul on a double foul with Shannon Brown.

Joe Freeman

That back-and-forth pretty much sums up this game.

John Schuhmann

OKC is only team that hasn't played an opponent on 2nd night of a back-to-back. Won't do it until 12/9 @ DET (playing b2b at home).

Kevin Arnovitz

In the "Below 21" Club of Offensive Rebounding teams, we have 3 Doc teams, 2 Spo, Pop, Budenholzer, D'Antoni, Nellie. That's some heft.

Gary Lee

Two hours before #LakersBasketball, so check out videos of the week which features Kobe and Shaq via @SerenaWinters. lakersnation.com/top-videos-kob…

Ira Winderman

And with Walker 3, Hornets go up 60-57. Heat's concerns with Jefferson have them scrambling on the perimeter.

Rick Bonnell

Good read of the double-team by Big Al. Ball ended up swinging to Kemba for a corner 3.

Chip Crain

Then @paul_craig photobombs Verno at the half, love this game http://t.co/N4R2k2IVRs

Sean Highkin

There are a couple of people spamming the comments on Rick Ross' Instagram photos with pear emojis.

Rusty Simmons

Leandro Barbosa waived off the intentional foul that would have had him subbed out for Shaun Livingston.

Ira Winderman

Rough start to the third for Shannon Brown, but Napier comes in for Chalmers.

Josh Robbins

Magic notebook: Nik Vucevic continues to gain traction: fw.to/goGSCGa

Diamond Leung

Leandro Barbosa makes 1 of 2, then waves Steve Kerr off and says he's OK. Shaun Livingston back to the bench.

Diamond Leung

Leandro Barbosa back in for the free throws.

Rusty Simmons

The training staff is looking at Leandro Barbosa's lower right leg. I can't tell if it's his knee or ankle. He'll shoot the FTs and then sit

Ethan J. Skolnick

Lance Stephenson's now made 6 of his last 8, and Hornets have pulled even. Al Jefferson is having no trouble getting post touches.

Ben Standig

SWEET!! "@CoCreateUMBC: #UMBC 1, Maryland 0. Has a nice ring to it! Congratulations @UMBCMensSoccer! #UMBCgrit @UMBCAthletics"

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo tries to stay patient after a few rough outings: fw.to/2P09QfG

Rick Bonnell

Henderson is playing up more on Deng this half; getting some help from teammates to contain Deng's drive game.

Gary Washburn

As much as Avery Bradley works on his 3-pointer, he's shooting just 30.6% for the season. May be time to cut down on the attempts #celtics

Ben Standig

Tannehill, this is not the end zone you're looking for. #fantasyreasons

Rusty Simmons

Leandro Barbosa is shaken up after taking a hard foul on a fastbreak layup attempt. Warriors take full timeout.

Diamond Leung

Leandro Barbosa grimacing after getting fouled going out of bounds on a fast break.

Ralph Lawler

Clips not sharp in 1st hlf. Trail Grizzlies 53-40. Been down by as many as 17. See if there's a come-back on Prime Ticket. @FoxSportsWest

Joe Freeman

LaMarcus Aldridge gives #Blazers their first lead of game, 59-57, by making a layup off a nice pass from Dame. 7:35 left in 3rd Q.

Chip Crain

The Human Highlight reel @Tony Allen broke Twitter http://t.co/S8JXEA9N2s

Jason Jackson

Ok NOW I think the @Miami Heat know the second half started thanks to @Charlotte Hornets 7-0 run to start the 3rdQ #HEATLive

Ben Bolch

To be fair to Clippers, the Grizzlies make lots of teams look bad. But Clippers should know the drill too well to play like this.

Erik Gundersen

The Batum and RoLo two-man game has been great to start this second half for Portland. Tie game at 57.

Joe Freeman

That last rebound gave LA a double-double (15 points, 10 rebounds so far).

Jessica Camerato

Will this continue the rest of the game? Aldridge + Lillard = 8/24 FG

Rick Bonnell

Hornets 7-0 run to start the second half, cutting the deficit to two. Sloppy ballhandling by the Heat.

Ira Winderman

Three Heat turnovers to start second half, all lead to scores, Hornets go from down 53-44 at half to within 53-51.

Ben Standig

49ers pass rushers beat Moses and parted rg3 from the ball. On to the colts.

Anthony Slater

Frustrated Scott Brooks storms on the court, yells at ref: "That's a foul!! Call it!!" Gets his first technical of the season.

Rusty Simmons

Scott Brooks gets T'd up for complaining that Andrew Bogut is altering too many of OKC's shots.

Jessica Camerato

Just pick up the phone and call RT @peterstringer YIKES. RT @washingtonpost: "Text neck" is becoming an 'epidemic' ...wapo.st/159f4lT

Ira Winderman

Shannon Brown now happening for the Heat, and it's not good. Two quick turnovers to start the second half.

Tim Kawakami

Not pretty. But over. 49ers win 17-13.

Marcus Thompson

Ahmad Brooks didn't know what to do at first. Settled on the smart move: going down

Diamond Leung

Andre Iguodala headed to the scorer's table to check in, was told there was a timeout coming, rolled his hands, danced back to the bench.

Rick Bonnell

Henderson again guarding Deng.

Anthony Slater

Reggie Jackson and Serge Ibaka a combined 2/10 FG in the first six minutes. Gonna need big offensive nights from both to stay with GSW.

Marcus Thompson

Justin Smith ends the game with another good lick on RG3

Ben Bolch

There's a guy inside a human hamster wheel going around and round at halftime in Memphis. Might as well be Clippers.

Geoff Calkins

Really happy then when I see "relocated" and "Bills" in the same sentence these days, it's just referring to one game.

Ben Bolch

Pace-adjusted, Clippers' 13-point halftime lead is more like 27. (H/T @ClippersCentral)

Rick Bonnell

I'll be real curious if Clifford has Henderson start second half guarding Deng. That didn't go well at all first half.

Chip Crain

Grizzlies do have 10 turnovers, Clippers with only 6. Clippers have 7 steals to Grizz 2.

Melissa Rohlin

Halftime: Memphis 53, Clippers 40. The Clippers are shooting only 35.1% and have trailed by as many as 17 points.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul has as many turnovers (one) as assists at halftime. No wonder Clippers' offense seems so horribly out of sync.

Ben Standig

You don't realize how tiny Welker is until his massive O lineman picks him like a doll.

Chip Crain

At the half, MEM 53-40. MEM 21/42 (1/9 3P) 10/15 FT 28 reb (5 off) +12 pts in pt (28-16), +3 fb pts (6-3) LAC 13/37 (2/10 3P) 12/19 FT

Ronald Tillery

Half - Griz holding Clippers to 35% shooting and lead 53-40. Marc Gasol has 20 points on 8/10 FGs & 6 rebounds

Dan Woike

#Clippers down 53-40, and really, it should be worse. Clippers shooting 35 percent, MEM hitting 50 percent.

Geoff Calkins

Griz lead at the end of immensely entertaining half, 53-40.

Ben Bolch

Clippers trail Grizzlies, 53-40, at halftime. Even at the Grindhouse, being on pace for 80 points is terrible.

After that terrific first quarter, Al Jefferson scored just two points second quarter.

Marcus Thompson

Washington had 8 in the box. Would've been great time for a bootleg and let Kap keep it

Kevin Arnovitz

Only 1 team since 02-13 posted an off. rebounding rate < 20 (BOS at 19.7 in 11-12). Clippers are at 17.3 and have only 1 in 23 opps tonight.

Ronald Tillery

Joerger complaining to ref. He can't believe "Twinkle Toes" (Big Baby Davis) just went around Zbo for a steal. Joerger wanted a foul

Rick Bonnell

Heat shooting 22-of-37. So to some extent Hornets fortunate to be down 9 at halftime.

Sean Highkin

This is important RT @HerringtonNBA: In consultation with an official, Dave Joerger refers to Glenn Davis as "Twinkle Toes."

Geoff Calkins

Joerger, on Big Baby: "He went right through Zach. Don't tell me Twinkletoes went around him and got that steal."

Ben Bolch

Big Baby gets the steal, manages to keep the ball and get it to Chris Paul. His passion is something the rest of the team needs.

Shandel Richardson

And the Dolphins do it again

Brad Turner

Wow this Chargers - Rams game is wild. But good

Clippers aren't in Florida anymore.

Casey Philip

Big catch Britt!!!! All the way down to the 6 yard line, 1st and goal @STLouisRams

Tony Allen shot a 3, committed a foul and just took himself out of the game.

Rusty Simmons

It's weird being in Oklahoma City and hearing Lance Thomas being introduced as the last/featured Thunder starter.

Surya Fernandez

Even with McRoberts' shot waived off, the Heat finished the first half 6-for-9 shooting from 3-point territory.

Ira Winderman

And for all those times I might have said "'Bobcats" I meant "Hornets."

Ben Bolch

Clippers need a new game plan for second half.

Surya Fernandez

McRoberts misses out on his second straight 3-pointer by a split second. Close call but it was the right one. Heat up 53-44 at the half.

Tim Kawakami

After making it on 4th down: Boldin catch and penalty for 44 yards, run for 5, Boldin catch for 8, Hyde 4-yard TD run

Scott Souza

Good first half for #Celtics against a very good Blazers team. Held Portland to 35% shooting, lead 49-44.

I may be wrong, but I think that's the first outside shot that I've seen Josh McRoberts make this season.

Jared Weiss

Sully almost pulled off a reverse Laettner!

Chip Crain

Griffin gets his 2nd. Both teams in the bonus the rest of the half. 4:41 to go. LAC 13 PF, MEM 9 PF. Conley to line for 2, misses, 39-28.

Gasol hit Blake Griffin hard, but it looked as though he were making a play on the ball. Refs ruled it a common foul. Clippers aren't happy

Tony Jones

So Ryan Clark gets knocked out AND HE GETS THE FLAG? Wow

Now it's Marvin WIlliams' turn to chase around Chris Bosh.

I'm pretty sure Oleksiy Oliynyk used that exact Gasol-Griffin move to KO Jared Rosholt last night in UFC Fight Night.

Fan yells: "Hey Barnes, if anybody knows about flagrant, it's you, brother."

Josh Newman

Either way, Monmouth got worked on the boards (48-26), yielded 18 offensive boards and had an abysmal final 14:00 of this game.

Ben Standig

Anquan Boldin is toughest guy in the league. Don't argue this.

Geoff Calkins

Common foul by an uncommon man.

Ben Bolch

Fan behind replay monitor yells: "It's the NBA, not kindergarten." Common foul indeed.

Ira Winderman

Deng's 19 points and Chalmers' seven assists both tie Heat highs for any half this season. Still 1:44 left in second period.

Geoff Calkins

Marc brings down his arm on Jordan. Fans applaud. Officials reviewing.

Dan Woike

And, the best opinion, "Blake grabbed Marc and flopped" -- the fan behind me.

David Aldridge

Meriweather should have blown Gore up in the backfield on fourth down. Probably going to cost them.

Dan Woike

Matt Barnes tells refs "that's a flagrant foul."

Jared Weiss

Jeff Green squares up Aldridge and blows by him with the left hand.

Dan Woike

Marc Gasol taked Blake Griffin to the ground by the shoulder on a block follow-through attempt. Gasol says "that's a basketball foul"

Ben Bolch

Not a dirty play by Marc Gasol. His arm was stuck in a bad spot.

Josh Newman

Watched the film real quick of that final Towson dagger. Eddie Keith drove, Nicholas slid to help, left Alex Gavrilovic open for the triple

Steve Bulpett

Holy hoops. @univofdayton over @BostonCollege, 65-53. Marianists over Jesuits.

Melissa Rohlin

The Clippers are being outshot, 51.6% to 35.5% and outrebounded, 20-11. They're down, 37-27, with 5 mins left in the second

Marcus Thompson

Kaepernick stays on the field. 49ers going for it

Ben Bolch

Marc Gasol looks leaner than he ever has. His game continues to improve and evolve. Dare I bring the Lakers into this conversation?

Adi Joseph

Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph remind me of grizzly bears.

Geoff Calkins

Fan challenge update: James was not able to eat the entire pumpkin pie. Big Baby shakes his head in disgust.

Surya Fernandez

Bosh with 9 second quarter points so far after just 2 in the opening quarter.

Ira Winderman

Truth be told, the building has filled up nicely, perhaps more an issue of the early start than Dolphins-mania.

Melissa Rohlin

The Clippers definitely don't have the magic touch today against the Grizzlies that they've had in their past two road games.

Erik Gundersen

Blazers chipping away but still down 43-37 with 2:33 left in the first half. Blazers only have 6 three-point attempts.

Surya Fernandez

It doesn't matter what team name is on the front of his jersey, Al Jefferson will always have big games against the Heat.

Tim Kawakami

If this review takes away the 1st down, I'd go for it if I'm the 49ers. Need a momentum-changer.

Dan Woike

I scooped the LA Times on "This could get ugly" by seconds.

Geoff Calkins

Marc Gasol is destroying Clippers, any Clippers.

Shandel Richardson

Heat are shooting 60 percent.

Ben Bolch

Marc Gasol sinking the Clippers. This could get ugly quickly.

Dan Woike

This could get ugly.

Jared Weiss

Aldridge keeps backing Sully down then getting easy short jump hook. Stevens subs in Bass, who holds him off, but LA hits it anyway #Celtics

Dan Woike

DeAndre called for his 3rd foul -- two in the last 20 seconds -- and DJ has to come out.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams now playing small forward, matched against Luol Deng.

Marcus Thompson

Washington should challenge that spot

Shandel Richardson

Lance Stephenson seemed to have awakened from slow start.
