The Nets will host a Jewish heritage night December 21st. Halftime game of Rabbis vs. Teens.
Jacque Vaughn said he doesn't know if O'Quinn, Fournier or Harris will play tonight vs the Warriors. Decisions closer to gametime
Only possible way winning some/most of final games makes sense beyond fan pride is Colt turns into Rich Gannon. Not holding my breath.
The Pistons assign F Tony Mitchell to the D-League, in Grand Rapids
Lakers, Earl Clark working on a one-year deal, league sources told Yahoo. He's averaging nearly 30 points for Houston's D-League affiliate.
Assuming Skins can't make playoffs, who wants them to win games over final weeks and who wants losses for better draft pick slots?
Not surprised Rose was limited for Bulls last night. Actually shocked they didn’t hold him out entirely.
All Rose is now is a skipping stone. A few splash plays, a ripple, and it's gone.
That's at least a two-month process. Thibs knows that and that's why there's an urgency.
Rose first has to play without fear, then do so in consecutive games. Then gel with the team, offensively and defensively.
Those that are screaming the "it's a long season" card are missing that. Clock is ticking and there are no shortcuts.
Omri Casspi is shooting 60% from 2-point range this season. Revelation off the bench (aside from starting last night) for Sacto.
For Rose to reach the top of the mountain again he must experience the bumps and bruises getting to the first base camp.
WIFE: "Hey, can you put together a playlist on my phone for Thanksgiving dinner?" ME: "Sure!" [erases everything from phone, adds RTJ2]
Andray Blatche had 31 points and 25 rebounds in Xinjiang victory over Bayi 84-69
If this was any other athlete in Chicago there would be complete outrage. Free pass time is tired. It's been tired.
As many begin a long Thanksgiving holiday please be safe and enjoy this period with family and friends . Special shout to Bulls-UC employees
The only one showing the best interest in Rose right now is his coach. Everyone else is catering to a man that needs a look in the mirror.
Mensah-Bonsu: "I've had knee issues since I was a teenager, but I'm still one of the most athletic players in Europe."
It will be nice when adult discussions concerning Derrick Rose can take place without fans being offended because "He's Chicago, Dog!"
Errick McCollum scored 49 points and pulled down 9 rebounds in Zhejiang loss to Shanxi 131-123
Jeremy Tyler had 45 points, 14 rebounds and 4 blocks in Shanxi’s victory 131-123 over Zhejiang
Lakers and forward Earl Clark have had a level of dialogue on possible reunion, sources tell RealGM. No deal yet. Clark: 29 PPG in D-League.
Pops Mensah-Bonsu is back. Told me he competed over the summer at NY ProAm with Kenneth Faried, Lance Stephenson and Smush Parker.
Pops: "Teams didn't want to take a chance on me, but I don't consider it as taking a chance. I'm in good shape and feel great."
On flunked physical for Olympiacos said Mensah-Bonsu: "I'm not sure how I failed. Really wanted to join the club."
Had a great chat with Mensah-Bonsu ahead of his EuroCup debut tonight. I'll tweet his best answers.
Just finished Bucks-Pistons. Solid win for the Bucks. Love to watch their defense -- aggressive style, arms everywhere.
Rice and Brown will square off for the first time on Sunday night, two nights after Rice and Turgeon face each other for the second time.
King Rice and Mark Turgeon were on the same Oregon staff in 92-93. Turgeon played at Kansas for Larry Brown, who, like Rice, is a UNC guy.
Working on some Monmouth preview stuff, and the ties that bind this weekend for these games are pretty cool.......
Jeff was a rock star again, but how about the bench last night!? http://t.co/QuiAHXcAQl
All-Star practice is at MSG this year. Usually it’s held in a much smaller venue (Jam Session), which provided fans with great access.
Apologize Delay on Tip Off coming shortly
Steph Curry has made at least six 3-pointers in 33 games in his career. Over the last five seasons, no one else has more than 15 such games
Heat were impressive even in defeat last night. It’s not just their spacing. It’s how they cut off the ball to maximize it.
The feeling of relief you get when you hear brakes squealing when approaching a red light and the sound isn't coming from your car
Please send any questions you would like answered about the Pelicans for this week's Twitter mailbag- J. Fredette, Eric Gordon injury, etc.
It should be said in all this that my understanding is Bailey had no opt-out in contract so release was by negotiation with Phoenix.
Was explicitly told yesterday that Bailey was being allowed to leave following lunchtime meeting with club officials.
Devan Bailey releases statement which alleges Cheshire Phoenix have reneged on agreement to free him from contract. The soap opera continues
Warriors outscored the Heat 76-43 over game's last 30 minutes.
Sometimes Omer Asik looks like a Bourne villain and sometimes he looks like the exhausted father of four at an amusement park.
FIBA suspends Japanese Basketball Association, bars it from competitions and wants reforms in place before 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
Man, I'm so looking forward to today. <-- lies. Cold. Rain. Snow. Bleh.
Dylan Ennis was the EA Maui tourney MVP. He also blocked a 6-foot-9 guy.
Sani Becirovic did not get a single salary this season from Forlì (he is not the only one: Zizic and Abbott too)
Sani Becirovic denied the rumors on Treviso: “I am still a player of Forli. I hope the situation will be resolved soon"
(FULL DISCLOSURE: My self-built website is horrific and probably should have money spent on it. But it's not happening.)
So if you paid four figures to have a site built, then pay the writers only a small percentage share of revenue/nought, you baffle me.
Whose work is more integral to the purpose, success and soul of a venture? Seems completely backwards.
In this industry, coders get full remuneration for their work at crazy hourly rates and writers bear the cost by being shockingly underpaid.
Kennedy Winston, with long experience in Europe will play for Halcones de Xalapa of the Mexican league LNBP
Does everyone stare the way I do? I only stare this way at you.
Tonight it’s Proverbs 26:4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him.
Cheshire Phoenix sign Bulgarian guard Simeon Naydenov.
An extra hour of sleep or the final episode of Season 1 of The Wire?
Why does @amtrak not have more overnight runs out of NYC? The 3 am train is sold out headed back to Philly.

"He's a Mayan Indian or an Aztec. I get confused" Annie Savoy - Bull Durham
trivia: Cavs efficiency differential is +0.1. Heat's is exactly even at 0.0.
Santa Cruz Warriors' Carrick Felix suffered a left knee injury tonight. He previously was with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Cavs-Wizards and Wiggins v. Parker are on tomorrow and the two national games involve the Knicks and Lakers. Nice.
Hey, Wiggins v. Parker tomorrow.
I would like to see this kind of passion for midterm and local elections. These faulty DAs are voted in.
These riots and looting are depressing
Pretty remarkable how quickly things have changed for Denver. Proof it's very early in the year and there's lots of basketball to be played.
(While they’re sleeping) … has there ever been a time when New York sports were this bad? I can’t remember one …
'Kings Central' programming update; if you missed the show, it will reair on CSN CA at 2pm for DirecTV/Dish/ATT providers

Thanks for listening Bulls fans. Great effort tonight just came up short. Working on Celtics -Bulls notes. Love it. Friday 1130AM CT pre

Butler:"I like role players. "Star" has never been next to Jimmy Butler's name, it never will be. I'm always be just an under the radar dog"
Butler's response to Thibs' praise: "I'm not a star. I'm a good role player on a really, really good team. A really, really, deep team ..."
Thibs w/high praise for Butler "He's been incredible. He's a star. And he does it on both ends of the floor. He's just an amazing player."
"Just trying to support the team" Seinfeld on Ch. 13. Seriously why paint your face? http://t.co/UlwCEenVUk
The images coming from Ferguson are just, whoa... http://t.co/BGRNLknLUp
And if the two sides were actually talking, there would be a candid discussion on what went down tonight.
I'm sure the front office isn't pleased with Thibs' honesty, especially after they sent word to the media it was "hamstring tightness.''
Rose needs to play every game possible. Those that don't understand that, well, Bears play Thursday. Enjoy.
What we saw tonight was Thibs seeing his star drowning, so he threw him a life preserver. And these games are meaningless?
Rose: "It wasn't nothing like I'm limping or I pulled it or anything ... it was just that I wasn't moving the way I wanted to."
Nova coach Jay Wright says he enjoyed his time in Brooklyn. "I bought cologne. The kids bought clothes."
Pinkston: "I was just focused on defense and trying to make a play on the ball and that's what i did.Came up with the big block at the end."
Rose on not playing 2nd half: "Just trying to be smart. Back-to-back, got fatigued, and didn't want to take any steps back."
