Kevin Pelton

Louisville was a shot away from getting upset in the round of 64. Now a game away from the Final Four. March comes at you fast.

Joe Gabriele

Former @CantonCharge standout Alan Anderson has played LeBron tough tonight.

Scott Cacciola

Been in Memphis three days, have watched the Grizzlies get blown out twice. 💩

Kris Willis

Hate to bust everyone's bubble but there will be little difference in 15th pick and the 12th

Mike Trudell

The Raptors fans are going nuts for Bruno Caboclo … like, cheering twice as loud as for anything all night. They lead 94-79 w/1:23 left.

Derek Bodner

This might be the night that the idea of the Lakers pick dies.

Josh Newman

Michigan State-Oklahoma will be a 10:16 tip

Gary Lee

Lou Williams scores on and off the court. If you don't know what I'm referring to, Google is your friend.

Rashad Mobley

The Hornets have completely ignored Al Jefferson the last few possessions

Eric Koreen

Hope you like your division victory cigars Brazilian.

Jenny Dial Creech

Harden ties his season-high in steals with 5. His career high is 7.

Mike Richman

With Knight out expect a big dose of Archie Goodwin off the bench for the Suns.

Earl K. Sneed

Spurs outshot the @Dallas Mavericks in the 1st half, 51.2% to 38.6%, in addition to a 24-22 rebounding edge. Mavs are 3 of 12 from three.

Bill Herenda

Let’s c how this plays out Pels 30-5 when leading after 3 Qs Sac 3-36 when trailing after 3 Q’s #Kings v #Pelicans #NBA #KingsTalk #SacKings

Devin Kharpertian

Yup. http://t.co/PHaSeY2tKU

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with a season-high five steals, two shy of career high.

Kris Willis

Does a Nets win tonight clinch a spot in the playoffs? RT @hoopinion: @peachtreehoops You hate lottery picks?

Christopher A. Vito

If everything holds, the 87ers will have blown a 27-point lead in losing this game. It seems I just can't escape bad basketball.

David Hardisty

James Harden just picked his 5th steal of the night, matching his season-high. He's two away from his career-high.

Geoff Calkins

All the Griz need here is another 20-0 run and they're right back in it.

Adam Himmelsbach

Weird game in that the Knicks have hung around, but it's never really felt like they were in it. 83-75 Bos. 5:12 left.

Aran Smith

Terry Rozier (17 Pts 14 Reb 4 Ast 1 TO) continues to impress in tourney.

Ben Standig

That 3-pointer by Wall the first by a Wizard tonight not named Bradley, Drew or Rasual.

Rusty Simmons

Tony Allen's return is questionable because of a strained left hamstring, according to the Memphis PR staff.

Eli Savoie

Thought for a second Marc was going to pull a Vince Carter and get himself booted so he didn't have to see the rest of this

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs decision to go small hasn't worked out in 4Q, Nets looking to put this one away; CLE needs a bucket out of T.O. badly - trail, 103-95.

Steve Luhm

Hot Rod Hundley passed away the day after John Stockton's 53rd birthday and the day before Jerry Sloan's 73rd birthday.

Eric Koreen

Tyler Hansbrough gets a flagrant. Let's go home.

Josh Lewenberg

With this (truly bizarre) victory, Raps will win the Atlantic Division, which (aside from hanging a shiny new banner) means little-nothing

Joseph Goodman

Nets leading the Cavs by 10 points with two minutes left. Looks like the Hawks might clinch the East tonight.

Gary Lee

Tyler Hansbrough with a flagrant one as Tarik Black heads to the line.

Tom Ziller

The Warriors are going to run the West, aren't they?

Diamond Leung

Numerous Grizzlies were asked at practice if Stephen Curry was MVP. They agreed to the extent that he's in the race.

Adam Zagoria

Final: Pitinos 75, Gottfrieds 65

Josh Newman

Halfway to the best-possible East Regional final given who's here. Louisville will get the winner of Michigan State-Oklahoma here next.

Paul Coro

Brandon Knight (left ankle sprain) is out for #SunsVsBlazers tonight, his eighth consecutive missed game.

Mike Trudell

It'll be a flagrant 1 on Hansbrough, who didn't make a play on the ball. Black got up quick, but calmed down immediately. All under control.

Royce Young

Golden State’s tearing apart another team that was good for most of the season but struggling now, up 19 in Memphis.

Gary Lee

Same look Tyler Hansbrough had after giving Tarik Black a hard foul. http://t.co/HOWQrCB92u

Jason Jones

Davis and Pondexter each have 16 points for New Orleans. Reke has 21 points.

Mike Richman

There was just a youth taekwondo demonstration set to an instrumental of "get your freak on" by missy elliot. Game cannot start soon enough

Payal Doshi

Tyler & Tarik get into a scuffle after the last possession but high-five it out. #rtz

Jeff McDonald

RJ's really the only ex Spur that gets booed in this building. They didn't boo Michael Finley, and he strong-armed his way to Boston.

Brett Pollakoff

That three from Joe Johnson may end up being the dagger. Nets lead Cavs 103-93 with 2:05 remaining.

Tim Bontemps

Scratch that – Nets are up 10. Even beyond the result, this has been one of the strangest games of the entire season.

Geoff Calkins

Injury to insult. RT @thefishnation: 3Q- Tony Allen is questionable to return with a left hamstring strain

Jerry Zgoda

Adreian Payne has 8 pts in 3rd & Wolves within 81-74 with 2:56 left in 3rd qtr

Rick Bonnell

Henderson's 11 rebounds a new career high.

John Reid

Pelicans close out third quarter with 74-66 lead.

Jonathan Feigen

As shorthanded as Wolves are, the Minnesota bench owning Rockets reserves. Rockets bench 5 of 15; Wolves' 6 of 6.

Jared Zwerling

Cavs up to their old tricks tonight: too much isolation and can't defend the pick-and-roll. Nets passing well. And J.R. Smith 2-of-9 from 3.

Kris Willis

Joe Johnson just knocked down a long three-pointer to put Brooklyn up 101-93

Commercial breaks for an Internet broadcast of a D-League game in overtime are the worst kind of commercial breaks.

I see one outlet listing 11 candidates for St. John's. That is absurd. Might as well list @Frank Isola and Patrick Ewing, too.

Gary Lee

FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Eric Pincus

Lakers getting the necessary loss - play Nets in Brooklyn on Sunday before a huge one in Philly on Monday

Jason Calmes

Tyreke is feeling it but that shot was difficult & AD was open a few feet from him. Instantly pulled and Toney Douglas comes in.

Rod Boone

Huge 3 by Joe puts #Nets up 101-93

Lin faded after a strong start, shooting just 4 for 13, the same as Ellington (23 combined points). Johnson's 2 for 11, Kelly 3 for 8.

Kris Willis

Nets leading the Cavs 98-93 with just over 3 minutes remaining

Mark Followill

Mavs fell behind by 21 in 2Q, now down 54-41 at half in SA. Boris Diaw leads Spurs with 12, Monta has 8 for the Mavs who are shooting 39%

Joe from 30 feet. Good. #Nets lead 101-93. Why not.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks 99, Heat 84 with 3:57 left Nets 98, Cavs 92 with 3:18 left. #ATLHawks

Tim MacMahon

Half: Spurs 54, Mavs 41. FG%: Spurs 51.2, Mavs 38.6

Geoff Calkins

The funny thing is, you watch this, you can't see how the Griz were ever really good. But they were. They have 50 wins.

Bill Herenda

Another double-double for Cousins, 25/10 2nd in #NBA w/44 double-doubles & has missed 16 games #Kings v #Pelicans #NBA #KingsTalk #SacKings

Chris Miller

Wall is getting comfortable making big shots. Forced overtime with a mid range jumper. Heading to OT with @Charlotte Hornets #WizardsTalk

Jonathan Feigen

Back in starting lineup with Jones, Motiejunas out, Josh Smith's been sensational. He's 6 of 7 for 15p with 5r, 6a, many other fine passes.

Jason Jones

Asik might have sold that foul .... a little bit

Jaryd Wilson

Korver Kounter: 🔥 🔥

Gary Lee

Ryan Kelly continues to struggle, but I am excited about how his beard will develop in the final 11 games.

Rusty Simmons

#Warriors 74, Grizzlies 59 (5:17, 3rd) Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have 16 of the Warriors' 20 points during this 20-10 run.

Jeff McDonald

Pop cornered Eli Roe before heading to locker room to try to figure out how come he got a tech. Agreed to disagree it appeared.

Jason Lieser

The #Heat were kinda Milwaukee Bucksing the #Hawks until a couple of bad plays by Beasley there. Atlanta's 26-pt lead was down to 12.

Brian Mahoney

LeBron with just three points in the second half with 3:18 left. Nets lead by six.

Marcus Thompson

Curry has now made five 3-pointers in three straight games. He is 18 for his last 29 from deep

Spurs’ defense holding Mavs to 39% shooting with 8 turnovers. Ellis 8 points. The Spurs’ largest lead has been 21 points.

Calvin Watkins

Josh Smith makes his third 3 of the evening. He's got 15.

Gary Washburn

Since Quincy Acy fouled Kelly Olynyk four times on one drive, they're reviewing to see if some of those was intentional #celtics #knicks

Eli Savoie

Their ball movement is unbelievable. 23 assists on 28 baskets now

Dwain Price

#Mavs shooting 38.6%; Spurs shooting 51.2%. Mavs have 8 turnovers, the Spurs 7.

Jorge Castillo

This time, the Wizards don't allow the game-winning basket. Mo Williams missed a desperation 3 as time expired. OT.

Adam Zagoria

Rick Pitino is headed to another Elite 8 w/ not close to his best team. Hall of Famer. Could get Pitino v. Izzo here on Sunday.

Geoff Calkins

Griz getting booed, down 74-59.

Ben Standig

Overtime in the big city. 96-96. John Wall saves the day.

Geoff Calkins

The last couple games, feels like riding cavalry against tanks.

Paul Garcia

Half: Spurs 54, Mavs 41. SA is shooting 51% with 16 assists on 22 makes, but have 7 TOs. Diaw 12 points, Kawhi 11 points.

Jeff McDonald

Normally when a guy gets booed, it's because he forced his way out of town or gave everybody the finger on his way out. Seems weird to me.

Rusty Simmons

Stephen Curry told everyone who would listen that he "can finish with either hand, baby."

Tom Moore

When players get hurt RT @Willll5013 @Tom Moore what's the logic? If winning doesn't matter it shouldn't matter if a game is out of hand

Devin Kharpertian

That stack play the Celtics ran would make a lot of sense for the Cavaliers here. Good thing David Blatt doesn’t have Twitter.

Dan McCarney

Poor end to the half for Spurs, who give up transition layup to Ellis just before the buzzer. Still lead 54-41 after a fairly dominant 2 Qs.

Ben Standig

Somebody guard George Hill

Jason Jones

Plus Tyreke is hitting jumpers. That makes him tough to cover. He's got 21 points, 6 assists. New Orleans leads 70-63

Monte Poole

Klay temporarily forgetting about the 'pass up a good shot to get a great shot' thing the #Warriors constantly talk about.

Josh Newman

Terry Rozier has been terrific since Chris Jones was dismissed. More of that tonight with 17, 14 boards (he's 6-foot-1) and four assists.

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis just went 0 to 100...real quick. #DALatSAS

Michael Dugat

Why did the ball lie?

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson comes into the game and immediately takes a shot that hits the side of the backboard. Lolz.

Devin Kharpertian

The Nets are getting a loooot of calls here. Foul disparity not special though, 16 Cavs fouls vs. 15 for Nets.

Dan McCarney

Ellis misses the free throw.

Tim Bontemps

Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson are iso-ing the Cavs to death, and the Nets are managing to maintain their lead because of it.

Jason Jones

In other news, Tyreke Evans is really good at attacking off the dribble.

Mike Trudell

A 10-0 run for the Raptors pushed the home team's lead to 88-72 with 5:16 left in the contest. James Johnson up to 18 bench points.

Dan McCarney

Two minutes left in the first half, Spurs shooting 52.5 percent with 15 assists on 21 buckets, only 5 TOs. Pretty good.

Gary Lee

I bet @Ryan Ward Jeremy Lin (14) will have more points than Jordan Clarkson (12). Looks like Clarkson will close this game, too.

Jonathan Feigen

Howard nearly had his first non-dunk FG since his return. Dieng tied him up, but nearly rolled in. Instead, gets first FT.

Kings leaving Quincy Pondexter open behind 3-point line. He has made 4-of-6 3s for 16 points.

Another dunk by Howard, a mini two-handed jam. He's got 10 and the Wolves need a timeout. As we do the Macarena at Toyota Center.

Eric Smith

8:55 to go in q4, DeRozan gets his first FG of the night. Toronto up 10 on LAL

Mike Trudell

The first DeRozan FG comes at the 8:50 mark, and it put the Raptors up 10 early in the 4th Q. He also has a game-high 7 assists.

Gery Woelfel

I'm told one of the reasons Diamond Stone chose Maryland is how coach Mark Turgeon developed center Alex Len, now with the Phoenix Suns.

Dallas has two guys you don't really have to guard in the halfcourt. It's a wonder their offense works as well as it does.

Josh Newman

Anton Gill has Louisville's last seven after you forgot he was out here for 34 minutes.

Gary Lee

Lakers actually had a 10-point lead, but now trail by 10. Makes sense.

Celtics notes: A Laker praises the Celtics, Isaiah feeling better, and C's keep an eye on James Young: bostonglobe.com/sports/2015/03…

Terribly saddened by the news of Hot Rod’s passing. Was a tremendous pleasure working with him. Countless memories.

Jason Jackson

Thanks to @Jaryd Wilson Dancer for dropping this off & allowing me to sing Cameo's "Candy" as she rolled out #HEATLive http://t.co/FGiyj10GPY

Lenn Robbins

Absolutely love! the clip from #Gladiator they just showed @barclayscenter "At my signal, unleash hell.''' #Nets

Aaron Falk

If, on the day you die, your friends have half the stories and laughs to share as Hot Rod's friends, you done good. sltrib.com/sports/2340719…

I'm a huge fan of the nickname "Dish" Smith.

Rudy Gay makes it 10-2 Sac run Sac up 52-48 9:50 Q3 #Kings v #Pelicans #NBA #KingsTalk #SacKings

Gary Washburn

#celtics lead #knicks 70-63 after 3Q. Bargnani 21, Larkin 12; Thomas 15, Bass 12, Crowder 14.

Marc D'Amico

The Celtics are on top of the Knicks 70-63 after three quarters. Isaiah Thomas is up to 15 points and 6 assists. Crowder: 14 points, 8 rebs.

Jeff McDonald

RJ didn't quite fit the offense Spurs were moving toward at time. Still shot 44% from 3 one year and averaged in the 12-13 ppg range.

Rick Bonnell

Mo Williams takes the charge on John Wall. Huge play that negates a layup.

Kris Willis

Brooklyn leading Cleveland early in the fourth. Hawks will clinch No. 1 seed with win and Cavs loss

Dan McCarney

Never really understood allure of getting plastered at sporting event. Shouldn't spectacle be entertainment enough? Especially at that $?

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets out to a 12-6 lead at 6:30 in 1st. ... Defensively done a nice job of plugging the lane so far

Chris Vivlamore

DeMarre Carroll has 24 points through three quarters. Season- and career-high is 26 points. #ATLHawks

Eric Koreen

The Canadians shoot just 7-for-22, but Pangos, Wiltjer and Gonzaga are on to the Elite 8.

Tony Jones

Jazz with a very sluggish start...down 12-6, not running great offense, and turning the ball over

Jay King

And it's nice to have you back, Isaiah Thomas.

Earl K. Sneed

Charlie V. does some dirty work down low, getting the tip-in to bring the @Dallas Mavericks within 16, 41-25, with 6:46 in the half. #DALatSAS

Jeff Goodman

Robert Morris coach Andy Toole has turned down the Fordham job.

Bill Herenda

Nice job by Cousins to avoid offensive foul & get McLemore involved Sac up 50-48 on 8-2 run #Kings v #Pelicans #NBA #KingsTalk #SacKings

Jay King

Wow, that defensive possession by Marcus Smart was unreal.

Joseph Goodman

Hawks clinch the East tonight with a victory and a loss by the Cavaliers. Hawks 89, Heat 67 entering the fourth quarter.

Dan McCarney

Spurs with 12 assists on 16 buckets, still 7 minutes to play in the 2nd quarter.

Abby Chin

No question Isaiah needed that! Hopefully the pull-up J helps him find some rhythm. #CelticsTalk

Ben Standig

Drew Gooden has played 17 straight game minutes. I wonder how many times Witt has left Nene or Gortat in that long this season.

Jason Walker

UMLAUT double-doubles are a tasty treat every time.

Dwain Price

Monta may have to get 40 to get the #Mavs a win tonight.

Ben Bolch

76ers back within 23 points. If they can shave about 6 or 7 more off we might see the Clippers starters again.

Jason Calmes

Kings starting the half with a quick 8-2 run to take the lead. 50-48
