Tom Ziller

Although technically the rocket would need to self-destroy in order to destroy the clipper hey wait that's exactly what we're watching

Arash Markazi

Rockets 13 point lead turns into a 13 point deficit but the Rockets are making a late push.

Pete Pranica

Game ops note for @jpmemphis ... SF Giants play Sinatra's "Strangers in the Night" for Kiss Cam #creative

Calvin Watkins

Good move by McHale to bring Prigioni back into the game. We have three guards, Prigioni, Terry and Harden. Josh Smith sits.

Tim Bontemps

What was Matt Barnes doing there? Just a dumb play.

Amin Elhassan

This dude Harden is genius level at recognizing where defender hands are and creating the contact.

Vince Cellini

Redick just hit a shot straight out of Duke's Blue vs White scrimmage. @Los Angeles Clippers @Houston Rockets

Dan Woike

And here comes the Houston last gasp push

Calvin Watkins

Harden draws a foul on Barnes.

Jimmy Spencer

Playing the Spurs for seven games sure did train these Clippers how to play.

Tom Ziller

Clippers would never beat rockets in an actual battle fwiw. 🚀⛵️💥

Paul Garcia

Fake Clips tweet: "So you're saying we don't have to go against Kawhi, Duncan or Green to score?" We got this. LAC leads by 13 w/ 4:18 left

Brad Turner

DJ and his so-called friend, Dwight Howard pushed each other. D-12 upset

Tim Cato

also barnes in the middle of a scrum what a shock

Justin Verrier

Conflict is Matt Barnes catnip.

Arash Markazi

DeAndre and Dwight get into it and Matt Barnes is playing peacemaker. Nope, this isn't real life.

Dan Woike

But I thought they were friends?????????????????????

Chris Vernon

all ya need to know - get down 11. timeout - come out and it's a josh smith 3 attempt. clank

Benjamin Hochman

I scanned this tweet and thought -- is this a tweet about Kenyon, Nene and the '09 Nuggets? twitter.com/TMZ/status/595…

Lang Whitaker

JJ REDICK IS A BREAKFAST DEFECTOR

Tim Cato

JJ Redick is a gawd

Brad Turner

The Clippers can sesne they are about to steal this game.

Jon Krawczynski

Really weird game from Harden. Just seems content to stand and watch and basically do the opposite of what he did during the year

Dan Woike

That Redick finish was insane

Nick Bedard

Asian stuff while watching nba playoffs. My predictions (in Korean) here m.sports.naver.com/basketball/new… http://t.co/5iXBVzpstT

Kurt Helin

Before the 2009 draft, Stephen Curry’s agent and father tried to steer him to the Knicks dlvr.it/9gYnHB

Chris Miller

IF Wiz win Game 2 it will equal number of playoff road wins last 2 seasons (currently 8) compared to previous 35 seasons combined (9 wins)

Ryen Russillo

I don't believe there are any rocket activist groups. I checked.

Tony Jones

Josh Smith contested corner three. Yeah that's totally the shot Houston needs to stop that run

Tim Bontemps

This is just a remarkable game. Rockets blowing a golden opportunity to jump out in front in this series with a pathetic second half.

David Hardisty

If the best you can do out of a timeout is a Josh Smith three-point attempt, you're in trouble.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul flexes and yells "Yeah!" after that foul on Dwight Howard.

Jimmy Spencer

Guys, I think @periscopetv is the future of entertainment.

Arash Markazi

I've never seen the Clippers bench this into a game. They're jumping up and down after every play like a college team in the tournament.

Brad Turner

Josh Smith an awful 3 pointer out of a time out. He missed of course.

Royce Young

Clips on a 10-0 run, leading 99-88 without Chris Paul. Just like everybody expected.

Lang Whitaker

Oh no I'm gonna have to eat beans for breakfast RT @Lang Whitaker: If the Clippers win this game I'm becoming a breakfast defector.

Amin Elhassan

Excellent defense by Redick on that possession vs Harden. Immediately jumps into no middle stance, funneling to DJ http://t.co/pfrw61d6Fi

Kamenetzky Brothers

Give the Clippers credit, but this show from Houston has been appalling. As bad as anything I've ever seen. BK

Sean Cunningham

Madison Bumgarner is dealing right now. 9 outs away

Robert Morales

Big 3-ball by Crawford gives Clippers 99-88 lead with 5:20 to play #CLIPPERSvsROCKETS

Chris Vernon

oh my word. what a disgrace the rockets are tonight. without Paul? at home? day Harden lost MVP? can't believe it

Mike Prada

Clippers doing exactly what I thought teams would do vs. Houston’s offense. sbnation.com/nba/2015/4/16/… http://t.co/0WWCwAKRcG

Tony Jones

I'm not sure Houston can mentally rebound from losing to the Clippers without their best player

Andrew Sharp

The Rockets might get kicked out of the NBA tonight

Peter Vecsey

Harden is playing like he did against the Heat in The Finals...

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets are playing desperate basketball. Clippers just look calm and like they are having fun out there.

Alex Kennedy

The Clippers look really good right now.

Josh Newman

These Clippers, tho. Epically trash bench and all

Arash Markazi

Back to back threes from the Clippers, who were shooting about 30% from deep, has them up on the Rockets, 99-88 with 5:20 left.

Brad Turner

Back to back 3s by Matt Barnes and Jamal Crawford gives Clippers 97-88 lead with 5:20 left. Q\uiet in Toyota Center

Ben Bolch

Jamal Crawford corner three-pointer puts Clippers up, 99-88, with 5:20 left. Wow.

Kurt Helin

The Clippers are not the Mavericks

Dan Woike

First wave of fans headed out of Toyota Center.

Howard Chen

Clippers with 10 straight points after the #Rockets had pulled within 89-88.

David Hardisty

That escalated quickly. Back-to-back threes by the Clippers and the Rockets are on the ropes, down 99-88 w/ 5:20 left. Very quiet in here.

Dan Woike

Back-to-back 3's by the Clippers and they're up 11 with 5:20 left.

Alex Kennedy

Excellent ball movement there. And man, Matt Barnes has been balling lately.

Arash Markazi

Wow. Is this real life?

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets are going to need a lot better play from Terrence Jones and Josh Smith in this series.

Ailene Voisin

Actually, Warriors are owning expectations. Not shying away from title-or-bust theme ...

Arash Markazi

Clippers 93, Rockets 88 with 6:14 left in the 4th quarter.

Royce Young

You feel you got snubbed for the MVP, came out and have 15 points on 10 shots. Hakeem like: http://t.co/5OumRibH3j

Calvin Watkins

Clippers having fun, slapping five, smiling, talking. Rockets look a little stunned right now.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets look very disjointed on offense. Need to get more touches for Howard on the post and Harden in clear situations.

Josh Newman

The plan here was to get Chris Paul four days rest before Game 2. Stealing homecourt would be a bonus

Kurt Helin

I will never be as lucky as the horse in the Direct TV ads

Kamenetzky Brothers

Lost in all the redemptive-for-CP3 storyline after Round 1 was the equally applicable redemptive-for-Griffin storyline. BK

Mike Prada

Really gonna let DeAndre get that tip-in, Dwight?

Ailene Voisin

Why does it feel like Warriors are going to waltz to a title? Assuming they stay healthy? No flaws. No injuries. Immense expectations.

Arash Markazi

This is as vocal as I've ever seen Blake Griffin on the court. He is, by his own admission, a quiet leader who leads by example usually.

David Hardisty

What is Josh Smith supposed to do but stand there planted with his arms up? Terrible call -- gives the Clippers a freebie.

Jon Krawczynski

Vintage Dwight and vintage DRose in the same night

Arash Markazi

Blake Griffin screaming at his teammates to huddle up as Chris Paul normally would. Chris Paul smiling on the bench as he stands up.

Jonathan Feigen

Griffin lowered a shoulder, drove into Smith. Got the call. Doc Rivers told crowd, "Yeah, that was bad."

Jenny Dial Creech

Doc Rivers nodded at the booing fans, mouthed, “yeah, that was bad."

Calvin Watkins

Even Doc Rivers said that was a bad call on Josh Smith.

Tony Jones

oh man that's a terrible call

Calvin Watkins

McHale takes Brewer and Prigioni out for Harden and Terry.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets having to swarm to Griffin to have any chance against him. He's moving ball to open shooters, has 10 assists.

Ben Bolch

Late-game cool Clippers learned in the Spurs series could pay off big here.

Kevin Pelton

Looked like the Clippers didn't know who was guarding the PG after Austin Rivers went to the bench.

Arash Markazi

Blake Griffin, who Doc called one of the best passers in the NBA, running point for the Clippers.

Howard Chen

DWIGHT WON'T BE DENIED. But he'll deny everybody else... #RedNation

Amin Elhassan

Biggest problem about Josh Smith made 3 is now he thinks he's in a rhythm from beyond the arc.

Mike Prada

Even by their standards, the Rockets are jacking some dumb shots.

Sean Highkin

It's going to be wild when Hedo wins Finals MVP.

Howard Chen

Dwight disrupting shots like CRAZY. Five blocks so far. #Rockets

Marcus Thompson

Of the 3 other teams remaining in the West, which has the best chance of beating the Warriors?

Amin Elhassan

😂😂😂 RT @B Rich: I’m really shocked that they haven’t mentioned that Dwight and Josh were AAU teammates in any of these Rockets games.

Dan Woike

Won't count as turnover No. 24, but Rockets' old people dance team came on the court and stood around as wrong music played.

Brad Turner

DJ danccing during time out. Clippers are feeling good about leading 89-83

David Hardisty

Things are so bad right now that the TC played the wrong song for the Space City Seniors dance team. They just stood there for 2 minutes.

Jenny Dial Creech

Man, things are just going wrong tonight. They couldn’t get the right music for the Space City Seniors and they didn’t get to dance. Sad.

Tom Ziller

You're losing to a team that started Austin Rivers and is playing Hedo Turkoglu in the fourth quarter. How did you mean 56 games?

Amin Elhassan

Give continuation (like soccer). I RT @WarninTracPwr: @Amin Elhassan how would they change it?

Calvin Watkins

The Space City Seniors were supposed to dance. The wrong song played and they walked off. Sad.

Chris Vernon

22 turnovers for rockets with 9 mins to go and will still have chance to win. what a strange team.

Tony Jones

Unreal that Austin Rivers is currently a difference maker and twitter is still making fun of him.

Jonathan Feigen

Howard just begging teammates to run basic post offense on consecutive possessions. No dice. All kinds of panic going on.

Amin Elhassan

Yup. Great switch & comm by Clippers RT @MarkJonesESPN: @Amin Elhassan rockets tried to run "elbow get" but Clippers sat on it for the steal.

Sean Deveney

2007 @GatorZoneMBK team well-repped at this time of year in NBA: Jo Noah, @Al Horford @Corey Brewer, Marreese Speights. And Billy Donovan!

Bob Finnan

Cleveland Cavaliers: Bulls won't rest on laurels of Game 1 win bit.ly/1cfPxeJ

Mike Prada

Clippers keep switching the Elbow Get play. Rockets seem totally confused, for some reason.

Amin Elhassan

Hate the shot clock violation rule. Rockets had possession and people running up court, lose that advantage & face set defense.

Benjamin Hochman

Game postponed. Everyone left except us in the press box. Tarp's super-wet. You thinkin what I'm thinkin? http://t.co/4nlbaspliF

Lang Whitaker

I don't care who wins but I don't wanna eat breakfast at Taco Bell.

Tom Ziller

God bless you, Hedo.

Arash Markazi

Hedo would have lit up a cigar on the court if he had hit that one.

Jon Krawczynski

Clips have JCrawford, Turkoglu, Rivers, Barnes and Big Baby on the floor in the 4th qtr of West semis. And they're winning

Jonathan Feigen

Howard easily takes Glen Davis to the hoop on consecutive plays. Jordan back in.

Amin Elhassan

AHHH the unstoppable Crawford/Big Baby side pnr

Arash Markazi

"Austin, Baby and Turk" Sounds like a bad sitcom on the UPN.

Janis Carr

"We're playing like we're stuck in the mud," Mchale said on TV

Tim Bontemps

I've watched every second of this game and still not sure how the Clippers are winning by six after three.

Calvin Watkins

Pablo Prigioni to start at point for the fourth quarter. Best option for Houston right now.

Brad Turner

Clippers blitzed the Rockets for 37 points in the third quarter. This without Chris Paul. JJ Redick had 12 points in the third

Fran Blinebury

Doc Rivers' chat 3Q, asks fans why no boo when McHale had Jordan fouled intentionally. "If you booed when I did it, y'all have to boo now."

Calvin Watkins

Rockets with 22 turnovers resulting in 29 points for the Clippers.

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul high fiving each one of his teammates before the start of the fourth quarter. "We're going to win this one," he tells them.

Robert Morales

The Clippers scored 37 points in that third quarter and lead 83-77 heading into the fourth #Clippers #Rockets

Alex Kennedy

Doc Rivers talking trash to Rockets fans: vine.co/v/eZi99JlrgWu

Jonathan Feigen

Clippers 83, Rockets 77 after 3, their largest lead. Rockets gave up 37 3rd quarter points.

Calvin Watkins

Clips with five in double figures and Rockets with three.

David Hardisty

Rockets hand Clips two free points with 0.4 sec left. Harden now w/ 4 fouls. Rockets trail 83-77 going to the 4th. Clips were 6-6 3P in 3Q.

Ben Bolch

Clippers outscored Rockets, 37-27, in third quarter after J.J. Redick scored 12 points.

Calvin Watkins

Harden has four fouls and 15 points on 5-10 shooting after three.

Dan Woike

Clippers up 83-77 headed to the 4th. Jordan is the only starter not in double figures.

Arash Markazi

Clippers 83, Rockets 77 at the end of the 3rd quarter. It's the Clippers' largest lead of the game after trailing by 13 points.

Amin Elhassan

Viper still got it! RT @Peter Vecsey: Everything you have to know about the Rockets is that the addition of Josh Smith raised their bball IQ

Brad Turner

Clippers are leading the Rockets 83-77 end of third quarter

Calvin Watkins

Tough sequence for Houston at the end of the third, a Crawford three off the glass and Harden called for a cheap foul with .4 left. LA up.

Peter Vecsey

Everything you have to know about the Rockets is that the addition of Josh Smith raised their bball IQ...

Jenny Dial Creech

Heading to the 4th quarter, #Clippers 83, # Rockets 77

Dan Woike

Not a good foul on James Harden, his 4th, pushing Redick out of bounds with 00.4 on the clock. Clips in the bonus, Redick hits both.

Kevin Pelton

A loose-ball foul with 0.4 seconds left when the opponent's in the bonus is about as bad as it gets.

Ira Winderman

Wow, Harden's fourth foul on an offensive rebound attempt with four-tenths of a second left in third period.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden picks up his fourth with .4 left in quarter. Pushed Redick from behind. A loss of composure mistake.

Brad Turner

Then with 0.4 seconds left in third, James Harden picks up 4th foul pushing JJ Redick down low for rebound

Tom Ziller

These refs are calling a strange game.

Amin Elhassan

Brewer shot something like 27% from left corner 3 this season but you wouldn't know it by the supreme confidence he unleashes them with

Steve Luhm

PCL final: Tacoma 4, Salt Lake 3. Bees leave 10 runners on base, including five in the final two innings.

Ben Bolch

James Harden and Blake Griffin have 4 fouls each.

Jenny Dial Creech

Griffin gets his 4th foul, then Harden gets his.

Arash Markazi

DeAndre Jordan's face after that Jamal Crawford three was priceless. Clippers 81, Rockets 77.

Howard Chen

JAMAL CRAWFORD. CRAZY BANK.

Brad Turner

Jamal Crawford hits a 3 -pointer

Jon Krawczynski

CoreyBrewer doin what corey brewer does. Just being disruptive

Robert Morales

Blake Griffin just took his fourth foul late third #clippers

Michael Dugat

When did any screen someone runs hard into become a foul?

Jonathan Feigen

Brewer with a baseline drive and jam, then draws Blake's fourth on an illegal screen. Had a 3 for the lead, but missed it.

Tom Ziller

Hedo's in. Our savior.

Robert Morales

After not scoring in first half, J.J. Redick has 10 points in this third quarter. Clippers up 78-75 ... sans @Chris Paul #Clippers #Rockets

Mike Prada

Rockets got great shots twice in a row on the backside DHO play I profiled last year. youtube.com/watch?v=w8rz1X…

Brad Turner

Blake Griffin picked up 4th foul setting a screen, Anoher turnover for Clips 20

Arash Markazi

Brewer flops on that Griffin screen and celebrates after getting the call. That's 4 fouls on Griffin.

Dan Woike

Big play -- Blake Griffin called for his 4th on an illegal screen in the backcourt. Crowd back into it.

Howard Chen

Something's ummmm BREWing above the rim. #yesimcorny #RedNation

David Hardisty

That Brewer baseline slam just got the crowd back into this one.

Amin Elhassan

The court's 50 feet wide, folks, that time Austin Rivers needing 51....*Clyde Frazier voice*

Jenny Dial Creech

Corey Brewer just came out of nowhere.

Alex Kennedy

HOU has 21 turnovers, James Harden has just 3 FT attempts and LA is leading on the road without Chris Paul. Yikes, this would be a bad loss.

Ryan McDonald

Howard Chen

J.J. Redick's certainly got it going in this third quarter. That shot off the glass is so nice.

Arash Markazi

Half the Clippers bench is on the court celebrating after that Big Baby charge.

Dan Woike

Big Baby take charge. Big Baby go boom.

Steve Aschburner

Major face time -- and a great seat -- for our man @Fran Blinebury at LAC-HOU Game 1, as Doc Rivers kibitzed with courtside scribes.

Some series the better teams know they are better, then close it out. We will see if Houston is one of those teams tonight.

Tom Ziller

Real talk I'd buy a coffee table book with Reggie's most incomprehensible quotes.

Austin Rivers with 10 points and 3 assists. He's 3 for 4 from three.

Chris Vernon

I don't really get the analytics of it all, but seems Rockets just take a million bad shots and then it works itself out

Howard Chen

LOVE that K.J. McDaniels takes part in the Chef Harden cam from the #Rockets bench. Pretty funny stuff.

Peter Vecsey

Kevin McHale has that bewildered "Where's Larry when I need him" look...

Jenny Dial Creech

Crowd tonight doesn’t have near the energy as they did last series.Maybe they don’t hate the Clippers like Dallas. Maybe tired of turnovers?

Tony Jones

Can we put to rest the "blake griffin isn't skilled" narrative?

Brad Turner

This is the best the Rockets have. No Chris Paul. No rest for the Clippers. Rockets have 5 days off. And this is what the Rockets have

Amin Elhassan

JJ Redick sprinting into DHO is such a tough action to defend. If big tries to hedge, Redick ready to deliver pocket pass to slipping Blake

Calvin Watkins

A late whistle on Big Baby fouling Harden on the drive has the Clips bench upset. It's 76-70, visitors.

Mike Prada

Rockets still haven’t realized they’re not playing Dallas anymore.

Arash Markazi

J.J. Redick with the jumper. Clippers 76, Rockets 70 with 2:39 left in the 3rd quarter.

Peter Vecsey

First team to be called for a 3-second violation establishes a clear-cut low post advantage...

Marcus Thompson

When did NBA MVP Stephen Curry REALLY want to be a Warrior? Safe to say it took a while bayareane.ws/1PjZYKc

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul high-fiving DeAndre Jordan as he comes out. "We're back," he tells him. "We're back."

John Schuhmann

Losing to the Clippers without Chris Paul at home would be like getting swept by the Wizards.

Lang Whitaker

Um he may not answer RT @Zach Lowe: I miss the Spurs. Gonna call up Aron Baynes and see what's up tonight.

Brad Turner

Another rockets turnover leads to a Blake Griffin basket and free throw. Clippers lead 73-68

Michael Dugat

It remains hard to fathom that people making millions of dollars to play basketball can be so bad at shooting freethrows.

Robert Morales

Tell you what, Clippers are playing #Clippers #Rockets

Amin Elhassan

Harden tried to do the Steph Curry pass.

Zach Lowe

I miss the Spurs. Gonna call up Aron Baynes and see what's up tonight.

Rick Noland

David Blatt has some very important decisions to make between now and Wed nite

Brad Turner

Clippers lead 70-68

Arash Markazi

Hack-a-DJ vs. Hack-a-Howard. Seems like a bad WWE match ending with a Hacksaw Duggan interference.

Jenny Dial Creech

Doc Rivers is talking with the fans who were booing him earlier. “Oh y’all are quiet now! Come on, y’all gotta boo!"

Calvin Watkins

Kevin McHale said before the game he doesn't like the intentional foul play, he's used it twice tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Doc Rivers egging on crowd behind scorers table. Clips up 1. He's having fun. Can't blame him.

Tom Ziller

The TNT studio crew should protest this game by only discussing notable Houston native Beyoncé.

Brad Turner

Josh Smith just threw the ball to the Clippers bench for another Rockets turnover. 20 now.

Rick Noland

James Jones 0-2 3s, 0 pts. now 2-13 on 3s in playoffs. hasn't hit 1 since Game 1 vs. Boston. did shut down noah, who had 0 pts, 9 reb

David Hardisty

That's 20 turnovers for the Rockets. They're four away from their season-high and we're still in the third quarter. Just awful tonight.

Jenny Dial Creech

20 turnovers… and the Rockets are only down 1 point (Clippers have 18.)

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets up to 20 turnovers with 15:45 left. Season high is 24.

Arash Markazi

Austin Rivers for three and the Clippers are up on the Rockets, 69-68.

Tony Jones

Austin Rivers is ballin

Dan Woike

Austin Rivers has made 3 3's now. Only Clipper with multiple makes from deep.

Amin Elhassan

Nope. Elbow Get is when Big to Big PnR is run at elbow. That's just a lob RT @grosenstein: @Amin Elhassan Was that...ELBOW GET?!?!?!

Chris Vernon

and I know I look super tall in that pic, you don't have to tell me

Kevin Pelton

Poor Randolph Morris. Edited out of the Atlanta Celtics highlights.

Vincent Goodwill

James and Irving accounted for every assist except 2, and every turnover except one. Forced to make EVERY PLAY.

Chris Vernon

Thinkin about that Curry draft. One of these guys (Carroll) is in the league. crazy. http://t.co/jGkWKkUl7P

Amin Elhassan

Can't bite on that Smith catch in the paint. Clippers need to stay attached to Dwight, let Smith try to shoot

Rick Noland

LeBron 9 assists, Kyrie 6. Rest of team had, drum roll, 2!!

Howard Chen

Ariza's coming alive again here in the 3rd. #Rockets

Mike Prada

Turnover on an ATO, which sums up this game

Brad Turner

Oh, boy, another turnover. Both teams with 18 each

Ben Bolch

So much for that after-timeout play.

Andrew Sharp

Rockets keeping it close and forcing people to watch this entire game is some next-level troll shit

Tom Ziller

This is the thing with Reggie Miller: you can always kinda make sense of his bon mots. If you squint hard enough.

Zac Boyer

Matt Niskanen on Jay Beagle's goal: "He got a lucky bounce, for sure, but he deserved it.”

Rick Noland

Shawn Marion played 6:21. only stat he posted was 1 foul

Bill Simmons

I can't believe the Rockets don't have more energy. Thought their color-coordinated T-shirt sections would have a much bigger impact.

Barry Jackson

If Fins get Collins, they would have 4 of draft's top 67 players(per Mayock), plus trade for WR (Stills) who led NFL in yds per catch in '13

Jenny Dial Creech

The Rockets are just out of sync. The Clippers look tired. It’s a mess, that’s for sure.

Zach Lowe

Also, please Jimmy Butler, take naps, drink fluids, etc. It's going to be a long series for you.

Mike Prada

But they can guard him on special teams. twitter.com/teamziller/sta…

Amin Elhassan

Just got home; how is this still a close game????

Jenny Dial Creech

We have a timeout. Rockets up 59-57. Both team still struggling with turnovers.

Rick Noland

Rose referred to Tristan as Christian twice in postgame. Tristan could be Christian, I don't really know

Tom Ziller

"They have no one to guard [Griffin] at either end." -- Reggie Miller

Paul Flannery

We're all just watching this game out of obligation at this point.

Howard Chen

Lotsa lotsa turnovers so far for both teams. 18 for the Rockets, 17 for the Clippers 5 minutes into the 3rd.

Eli Savoie

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate the Cardinals?

Arash Markazi

Blake Griffin jumper and we have a tie game amazingly. Clippers 57, Rockets 57.

Brad Turner

JJ Redick finally scores, a 3 ball

Zach Lowe

CHI D did a nice job limiting Cavs spread pick/roll, though thought CLE went away from it too much + showed no continuity into 2nd options

Arash Markazi

The first team to hit 30 turnovers loses. #MarkazisLaw

Tom Ziller

This is an Eastern Conference game.

Arash Markazi

The Clippers have 16 turnovers. The Rockets have 17 turnovers. #Ugly

Ben Bolch

There could be a Lawler's Law with turnovers tonight.

Dan Woike

And Houston takes the (turnover) lead back. Can the Clippers answer?

Brad Turner

Shot clockc violation by Rockets, 17 turnovers.

Zach Lowe

Bulls made more jumpers than normal, but I liked (slightly) reduced Noah minutes + Rose created a lot of breakdowns in CLE PNR D.

Arash Markazi

Dwight Howard is trying to get the crowd into it. They've been put to sleep like many watching on TV.

Rick Noland

“We didn’t panic, which we can hang our hats on,” Irving said. “We kept fighting and fighting. That first quarter just can’t happen again.

Brad Turner

Another Clippers turnover, by Blake Grififin, now 16 for Clippers

Dan Woike

THE CLIPPERS AND ROCKETS ARE TIED (with 16 turnovers each).

Rick Noland

“We knew what we were looking at,” Blatt said. “But we had to go through it to learn from it.”

Rick Noland

Cavs had series of horrible possessions in 4th, when LJ and Kyrie also missed layups

Chris Vernon

not the easiest to read. RIP Eggman Kenny Williamson. He was right. twitter.com/SpearsNBAYahoo…

Rick Noland

“We played the game a little too fast offensively,” James said.

Tony Jones

That absolutely should've been an offensive foul on Harden.

Brad Turner

These teams are Turnover Machines. Total of 27 turnovers

Rick Noland

“We had a bad start, obviously,” James said. “We can’t afford to do that in Game 2 for us to even the series.”

Rick Noland

Cavs went 7-for-26 from behind the arc (.269) compared to the Bulls’ 10-of-18 (.556).

Rick Noland

James was 3-for-11 while scoring just seven second-half points

Benjamin Hochman

Rockies game postponed! Party at my place!

Rick Noland

“I have to be much better,” James said. “This game is something we can learn from, which we will.”

Brad Turner

James Harden turnovers, 16 for Rockets now

Jenny Dial Creech

Ok, so we have two quick Rockets turnovers. They are up to 16 now.

Rick Noland

LJ just 4 pts in 4th, 2 real bad turnovers

Brad Turner

Turnovers Trevor Ariza. now 15 for Rockets and with still have 11:08 left in third
