Dave Joerger showed Gasol clips of Larry Bird before this season. This was the general idea.
Marc Gasol got in the best shape of his life for the World Cup. Grizz reaping the benefits early in the season.
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!
Lakers game or AMAs tonight for Nick Young? “He’ll probably try to do both,” Byron Scott said, cracking a smile.
Marc Gasol should be in early season MVP discussions.
Marc Gasol is destroying the Clippers. Passing, scoring, drawing fouls, defensively, everything.
Lot of frustration on the Clipper sidelines right now after that Gasol dunk. He's got 28
Marc Gasol, man...
Doc Rivers was pissed after Marc Gasol drove for that dunk.
Celtics finally get to Kaman and triple stuff him.
Byron Scott said he isn’t sure just yet if Carlos Boozer (questionable w/shoulder) will play. If not, Ed Davis would start.
Celtics have done well limiting Lillard and Aldridge tonight but there's only so much you can do against Kaman and Steve Blake.
Chris Paul did lower his shoulder into Mike Conley on that play. Good call.
West Virginia dominating UConn over last few minutes. Mountaineers have been the tougher team. This group looks more like a Huggins group.
These teams DO NOT LIKE EACH OTHER. Can you tell? huh? can you?
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.
The description of Gary Neal as just a shooter is so inaccurate.
Kelly Olynyk, still scoreless. Just three shots for the Celtics best shooter over 25 minutes.
"Nobody needs nobody," Marc Gasol.
Clippers playing better but still down double digits. Going to need a much bigger push to win this game.
Right on cue, Joel Freeland erases that fact with a running 9-foot J.
"All day. He can't guard you. All day," Clippers assistant Armond Hill yells after another Chris Paul jumper.
Roberts, Neal, Williams, Zeller and Biz to start fourth.
There is something great about Gerald Wallace and Chris Kaman competing in a close game. Nearly 43,000 regular season minutes between them.
The Chris Kaman regression is coming at some point. It has to.
Boozer might not play tonight because of a sore shoulder, Byron Scott said. Ed Davis would start vs. Denver.
Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Mitch McGary doing lot of talking from the bench. Reppiing the Warriors, Marreese Speights talking back.
Byron says he still doesn't know if Boozer plays
Hornets 72, Heat 67 end of third.
Hornets outscored the Heat 28-14 in the third quarter.
Hornets lead by 5 entering 4th, in what would be another ugly home loss for Heat. Charlotte shot 10-for-17 in the third.
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
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.
Rough third quarter for Heat, go into fourth down 72-67. Chalmers and Deng have cooled, while Jefferson and Walker have become problematic.
Zeller is doing a nice job reading Chris Kaman’s footwork. But he isn’t getting any lift to defend the jump hook.
Adam Hayward believes he's done for the season. Timetable longer than a month.
Wes Matthews finally gets in the game, drilling a dagger in Crash’s face.
And another Grizz-Clips "in-a-nutshell" http://t.co/D2pY6Owksk
Officials review Blake's 3-pointer, call it a 2. tied at 72 after 3Q
No matter what happens, Mike Woodson perpetually has this look on his face like everything is OK by him.
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.
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.
Somehow I don't have confidence in Jack in the Box's ability to pull off sriracha
Biz with a classic moving screen -- a point of emphasis this season.
Blake Griffin is bleeding and the fans say Griffin is faking it with ketchup.
Sprewell dude is right behind the basket and has taken to popping out of his seat right when free throws are released.
Bloody nose for Blake Griffin.
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
That was one sloppy turnover by Kemba.
Blazers lead 73-72 after 3.
Steve Blake MVP year
Heat shot clock.
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
Guy behind us: "That's not Steve Blake." Actually, it is.
Blake cooking Evan Turner.
Steve Blake just made Evan Turner look rather silly.
Ladies and gentleman: Steve. Blake.
Steve Blake just went temporary Iverson. Very temporary.
Both teams a doing a lot of complaining to the refs. A lot. More like the Whined House, right?
Grizzlies need timeout after Chris Paul three-pointer trims deficit to 62-52. Paul much more aggressive.
Gruden on why he went to Jackson as the punt returner: "It's DeSean."
Shabazz Napier was trying to guard Cody Zeller in the post. So that foul was the least of many bad alternatives for Napier.
End 1Q: Thunder down 28-20 to the Warriors.
A lone Warriors fan dressed in what appears to be a Latrell Sprewell jersey/foam finger is distracting Thunder FT shooters by squawking.
Shabazz Napier and Kemba Walker going at each other. Like a practice in Storrs, circa 2011. Heat lead, 67-66.
Gruden on defense: "We had guys in positions I didn't know they played."
The Dolphins covered, and they tried a creative onside kick. So there's that.
Blazers with 6 turnovers so far in the 3rd quarter, matching their 1st half total.
Matt Barnes is slowly losing his mind.
Best I've seen Big Al and Kemba collaborate offensively this season.
Chris Paul decided to show up and the Clips are back within 8.
Gruden said Amerson did not play because of a violation of a team rule. Would not elaborate.
Chris Paul with two quick baskets.
Bench up again as the Clippers have it to 8.
Kevin Durant didn't like that offensive foul call.
Gerald Wallace remains one of the toughest dudes in the gym.
Matt Barnes to Danny Crawford after a tough call: "What'd I do to you?"
Gruden: "He's made strides, but there are a lot of other things that go into the passing game." Cited Moses at LT.
Executed play results in a Redick 3, and the Clipper bench is on its feet.
Gruden: Biggers concussion. Hayward tibial plateau fracture. Redd bruised ribs. Porter strained sternoclavicular joint.
Double foul for Shannon Brown and Lance Stephenson. Stephenson might get a flop warning for that one.
Lance called for his fourth foul on a double foul with Shannon Brown.
That back-and-forth pretty much sums up this game.
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).
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.
And with Walker 3, Hornets go up 60-57. Heat's concerns with Jefferson have them scrambling on the perimeter.
James Young scores 22 points on 7-for-16 shooting, 3-for-9 3pt and 8 rebs in 34 min in NBADL Maine's 120-102 win over Delaware
This is starting to look like the Milwaukee game
Good read of the double-team by Big Al. Ball ended up swinging to Kemba for a corner 3.
There are a couple of people spamming the comments on Rick Ross' Instagram photos with pear emojis.
Leandro Barbosa waived off the intentional foul that would have had him subbed out for Shaun Livingston.
Rough start to the third for Shannon Brown, but Napier comes in for Chalmers.
Leandro Barbosa makes 1 of 2, then waves Steve Kerr off and says he's OK. Shaun Livingston back to the bench.
Leandro Barbosa back in for the free throws.
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
Lance Stephenson's now made 6 of his last 8, and Hornets have pulled even. Al Jefferson is having no trouble getting post touches.
Tie game on Lance Stephenson's elbow jumper.
Lance getting his anti-Heat buzz going.
Henderson is playing up more on Deng this half; getting some help from teammates to contain Deng's drive game.
Leandro Barbosa is shaken up after taking a hard foul on a fastbreak layup attempt. Warriors take full timeout.
Leandro Barbosa grimacing after getting fouled going out of bounds on a fast break.
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.
The Batum and RoLo two-man game has been great to start this second half for Portland. Tie game at 57.
That last rebound gave LA a double-double (15 points, 10 rebounds so far).
Wheels down SLC
Will this continue the rest of the game? Aldridge + Lillard = 8/24 FG
Hornets 7-0 run to start the second half, cutting the deficit to two. Sloppy ballhandling by the Heat.
Three Heat turnovers to start second half, all lead to scores, Hornets go from down 53-44 at half to within 53-51.
49ers pass rushers beat Moses and parted rg3 from the ball. On to the colts.
Frustrated Scott Brooks storms on the court, yells at ref: "That's a foul!! Call it!!" Gets his first technical of the season.
Scott Brooks gets T'd up for complaining that Andrew Bogut is altering too many of OKC's shots.
Shannon Brown now happening for the Heat, and it's not good. Two quick turnovers to start the second half.
Not pretty. But over. 49ers win 17-13.
Ahmad Brooks didn't know what to do at first. Settled on the smart move: going down
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.
Henderson again guarding Deng.
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.
Justin Smith ends the game with another good lick on RG3
There's a guy inside a human hamster wheel going around and round at halftime in Memphis. Might as well be Clippers.
Warriors seem to have two-time-zone-flight legs. They haven't gotten enough air and have come up short on four dunks/layups.
McRoberts came over to Hornets bench to greet the coaches. He and Clifford are very fond of each other.
Few things prettier than flying over New York City on a clear night http://t.co/ahoSdIzbeG
Grizzlies 10 2nd chance pts (4/4) Clippers 2 2nd chance pts (1/1) Paint: Grizzlies 28 pts (14/22) Clips 16 pts (8/17)
Really happy then when I see "relocated" and "Bills" in the same sentence these days, it's just referring to one game.
I'll be real curious if Clifford has Henderson start second half guarding Deng. That didn't go well at all first half.
Grizzlies do have 10 turnovers, Clippers with only 6. Clippers have 7 steals to Grizz 2.
Halftime: Memphis 53, Clippers 40. The Clippers are shooting only 35.1% and have trailed by as many as 17 points.
Chris Paul has as many turnovers (one) as assists at halftime. No wonder Clippers' offense seems so horribly out of sync.
You don't realize how tiny Welker is until his massive O lineman picks him like a doll.
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
Half - Griz holding Clippers to 35% shooting and lead 53-40. Marc Gasol has 20 points on 8/10 FGs & 6 rebounds
Griz lead at the end of immensely entertaining half, 53-40.
Clippers trail Grizzlies, 53-40, at halftime. Even at the Grindhouse, being on pace for 80 points is terrible.
Grizzlies are good.
J.J. Redick seems to be a non-factor in games when he doesn't get going early. Going to do an analytical study on this and get back to you.
Nick Calathes checks in to ovation. 1st game after 20-game suspension for violation of NBA drug policy
Nick Calathes checks in to rousing ovation.
After that terrific first quarter, Al Jefferson scored just two points second quarter.
Washington had 8 in the box. Would've been great time for a bootleg and let Kap keep it
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.
Joerger complaining to ref. He can't believe "Twinkle Toes" (Big Baby Davis) just went around Zbo for a steal. Joerger wanted a foul
Hyde not Gore here.
Heat shooting 22-of-37. So to some extent Hornets fortunate to be down 9 at halftime.
Joerger, on Big Baby: "He went right through Zach. Don't tell me Twinkletoes went around him and got that steal."
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.
And the Dolphins do it again
Wow this Chargers - Rams game is wild. But good
Clippers aren't in Florida anymore.
Tony Allen shot a 3, committed a foul and just took himself out of the game.
It's weird being in Oklahoma City and hearing Lance Thomas being introduced as the last/featured Thunder starter.
Even with McRoberts' shot waived off, the Heat finished the first half 6-for-9 shooting from 3-point territory.
And for all those times I might have said "'Bobcats" I meant "Hornets."
Clippers need a new game plan for second half.
The Grizzlies have pushed their lead to 15 with just under three minutes left in the second.
Andrew Bogut after lineup intro holds his hand high until Stephen Curry jumps up to slap hands.
Grizz-Clips in a nutshell. http://t.co/ekVv9XMBsO
Heat lead Hornets, 53-44, at half. Deng w/ 19. Jefferson w/ 13. Andersen has sprained ankle. In other news, what's with Dolphins' front 7?
Halftime: Heat 53, Hornets 44. Luol Deng went off for 19 points on 8-of-10 shooting.
Blazers down 49-44 at half. Rondo has 10 points, 2 ast, 3 rebs. Aldridge leads Portland with 11 and 7. Blazers shooting 35 percent.
Mexican sniper Paul Stoll confirms via text that he signed a long-term pact with domestic power-club Halocens Veracruz.
Marc is eating the whole pumpkin pie by himself.
Clifford went to ref David Guthrie at end of half hot about something. Guess it was whether McRoberts fouled Henderson.
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.
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
To be such a big guy, Hyde has great burst and some nice juke
RG3 could buy himself at least two criticism-free weeks if he can lead a game-winning drive here
The Celtics are flying around on defense (POR shooting only 35%) and lead 49-44 at halftime. Green: 12 pts, 3 rebs. http://t.co/U3pFokq0AQ
McRoberts three ruled late. So score stands.
Nate Kreckman in to attempt the extra point
Hyde gets to redeem himself for the fumble. Gore on the sidelines pumping his fists
Heat 53, Hornets 44 at half. Deng with 19. Bosh with 11. Heat sharp on second night of back-to-back. Reviewing late 3 attempt.
Someone tell RG3 to put his cape on.
Christian Laettner would have made that at the buzzer, Sully.
I may be wrong, but I think that's the first outside shot that I've seen Josh McRoberts make this season.
Sully almost pulled off a reverse Laettner!
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.
McRoberts 3 makes it a nine-point Heat lead.
Marc Gasol already has 18 points. Wowzers.
McRoberts, three, finally.
FINAL: Galaxy 1, Sounders 0. The second leg of the Western Conference Championship is next week in Seattle.
HE HIT HIM WITH HIS CHEST!!!! BOLDIN LED WITH HIS HELMET!!! STOP CHEATING US!!!!
MLS goes a week between playoff games? What, are they scared playing more frequently will hurt their wuttle wegs?
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
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.
Obviously, didn't mean "taked" meant "took"
Monmouth is 2-2, but could very easily be 4-0, including West Virginia 8 days ago. Next up? Maryland and Southern Methodist.
Big bucket by Lillard +1.
Heckuva throw from Kap. Threaded a needle on that one
Fan yells: "Hey Barnes, if anybody knows about flagrant, it's you, brother."
Either way, Monmouth got worked on the boards (48-26), yielded 18 offensive boards and had an abysmal final 14:00 of this game.
Anquan Boldin is toughest guy in the league. Don't argue this.
Common foul by an uncommon man.
Common foul called.
Fan behind replay monitor yells: "It's the NBA, not kindergarten." Common foul indeed.
Deng's 19 points and Chalmers' seven assists both tie Heat highs for any half this season. Still 1:44 left in second period.
Marc brings down his arm on Jordan. Fans applaud. Officials reviewing.
And, the best opinion, "Blake grabbed Marc and flopped" -- the fan behind me.
Meriweather should have blown Gore up in the backfield on fourth down. Probably going to cost them.
Matt Barnes tells refs "that's a flagrant foul."
Jeff Green squares up Aldridge and blows by him with the left hand.
Boldin is such a beast
Marc Gasol taked Blake Griffin to the ground by the shoulder on a block follow-through attempt. Gasol says "that's a basketball foul"
Not a dirty play by Marc Gasol. His arm was stuck in a bad spot.
Watched the film real quick of that final Towson dagger. Eddie Keith drove, Nicholas slid to help, left Alex Gavrilovic open for the triple
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
Kaepernick stays on the field. 49ers going for it
Marc Gasol looks leaner than he ever has. His game continues to improve and evolve. Dare I bring the Lakers into this conversation?
Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph remind me of grizzly bears.
Going for it.
Overturned. 4th down
Fan challenge update: James was not able to eat the entire pumpkin pie. Big Baby shakes his head in disgust.
Bosh with 9 second quarter points so far after just 2 in the opening quarter.
Truth be told, the building has filled up nicely, perhaps more an issue of the early start than Dolphins-mania.
The Clippers definitely don't have the magic touch today against the Grizzlies that they've had in their past two road games.
Blazers chipping away but still down 43-37 with 2:33 left in the first half. Blazers only have 6 three-point attempts.
It doesn't matter what team name is on the front of his jersey, Al Jefferson will always have big games against the Heat.
If this review takes away the 1st down, I'd go for it if I'm the 49ers. Need a momentum-changer.
I scooped the LA Times on "This could get ugly" by seconds.
Marc Gasol is destroying Clippers, any Clippers.
Heat are shooting 60 percent.
Marc Gasol sinking the Clippers. This could get ugly quickly.
This could get ugly.
DeAndre called for his 3rd foul -- two in the last 20 seconds -- and DJ has to come out.
Marvin Williams now playing small forward, matched against Luol Deng.
Washington should challenge that spot
Lance Stephenson seemed to have awakened from slow start.
