Ooops. Not a catch. Not even close
Fisher replaces Aldrich w/ Dalembert to start 2nd half. Aldrich has been good in stretches, but certain types of Cs, he has no shot against.
Fun Jazz fact: Ty Corbin's record after taking over for Jerry Sloan in 2011: 8-20. Quin Snyder after taking over for Corbin in 2014: 8-20.
Wow. Carrie just one-upped Woodson. That was an incredible INT if he actually snagged that
I asked Birdman about starting three in a row for first time in his career. “Man, I don’t give a &@#% about that. Say I’m ecstatic.”
Delly and Dion check in for the first time. 3:30 left in the first quarter. Different than the other night.
Cole's Notes: Aldrich has been replaced by Dalembert to start second half.
SVG on potential personnel moves: "The future is the utmost importance."

After last night, we are now 15-1 when holding opponents under 100 points.
Raiders learning quickly how solid this Bills defense is
Whiteside says the time he fractured his ankle was worse than getting his toenails ripped off. That might be it.
Steve Ross announces Joe Philbin is returning as coach
Hassan Whiteside says he's out tonight because of those ripped off toenails.
A misjudged kickoff last week and a dropped fake punt pass this week. Some breaks are definitely going their way
Just showed a Masai Ujiri commercial for Blackberry on the screen here - you'll be sad to know that he does not say, "Take that, Berman."
Whiteside out tonight.
Whiteside is out tonight.
Offense could be an issue. In those 9 minutes, this group made 38 percent of its shots. Opponents shot 64% against them.
JaKarr Sampson starting tonight. Brown says he likes McDaniels and Wroten coming off the bench for a spark.
Avery Bradley at the two tonight for the Celtics. Evan Turner coming off the bench.
Randolph injured, now Gasol out early with foul trouble.

Indy on the take. Has to be.
Pat Beverley said the Rockets still have a sour taste in their mouth from last year's playoff loss to the Trail Blazers.
DOHwey McDonald... Rock me
Dez Bryant to Greg Toler: "You can't hold me!!!" That's 14 TDs for Dez this season, a new career high. Cowboys record is 15 by T.O.
Rockets coach Kevin McHale said he didn't even mention Portland today. The Rockets had a long practice that was all about them.
All the gifts...Cowboys can't even open all of them up as they pile up
Colt S Dewey McDonald does not get credit for a PBU on the fake punt.
OK, I take it back.
Always a good day when you flip on the TV and see this guy. http://t.co/9g0b5ueS9Z
Seems like every stop along the way makes this abundantly clear: FedExForum needs a new scoreboard
I could make a strong case that DT Tyrone Crawford has been the Cowboys' defensive MVP.
This will be the eighth starting lineup the Magic have used this season -- and the 1st w/Oladipo and Payton together.
Thanks to everyone for a great turnout for the watch party http://t.co/uRdutptM9q
First time I've seen Marc Gasol live this season. He's skinny.
Varejao kept patting Dion's chest during pregame intros. Dion had no response. Finally Dion pushed Andy. Varejao just smiled and hugged him
It will be Smart's first NBA start.
Celtics to give Marcus Smart the start, moving Evan Turner back to bench.
Smart starts tonight. Turner back to bench.
Tony Romo on that drive: 5-of-6, 33 yards, TD; 2 carries, 21 yards. Also had a TD pass negated by penalty.
Raps up 58-51 at the half. Didn't finish the half particularly well, but then, they rarely do.
Per ESPN, Tannehill first Dolphins QB to throw at least 4 TDs in game since Marino vs. Denver in 1998, Week 16.
Rookie Marcus Smart starting at point guard today for the Celtics. This is Smart’s first start in the NBA.
Raps up 58-51 at half after a rough end to 2Q. Melo has 15, but Raps firmly in control.
Total lack of transparency... http://t.co/sNtfSPLsDj
I remember getting so many angry emails when I wrote Raiders should draft Watkins. One of the few times I was shocked by a negative reax
Was waiting for the inevitable James Johnson chase-down block or Prigs pulling the ball out there. Wow. Nice finish, Sneak!
Stevens on Smart: "I think he has the disposition to be a leader...but this is not a certainty in our next game. Let's see how it plays out.
Cavs PA playing "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" during Grizzlies' player introductions.
If not for the clown coaching down the stretch of the Detroit & Green Bay games, the Dolphins win at least 1, and they're alive.
Orton had all day. More than enough time for Sammy Watkins to beat Hayden
.... Wallace: 5-58-2 TDs... Wake 2 sacks... Dolphins outgain Vikings, 493-357... And of course, Fede with blocked punt for winning safety
Cool scene pregame in Sacramento: Carlos Boozer chatting with Spurs scout Trajan Langdon. The two pioneering Alaskan hoopers.
I mean, yay Cowboys and all but I don't wanna live in a world where that gives you a first down
Final nos. from Fins' 37-35 win: Tannehill: 35-47-396-4 TDs, 1 pick; 118.8 rating... Miller:19-92 rushing, 5-58 receiving.Clay:6 catches,114
Haven't seen Kobe play since '04-'05 season. In Sactown to see him play tonight. Should be fun.
This is what winning does; Raptors are a together group. They pull for each other. Their fans are into it...just like MSG in 1999 or 2013
Anyone find a laptop power cord at Staples Center last night after Clippers game? Ugh.
Spoelstra on his plans to move to Aspen: "We got no food, we got no jobs... our CENTER'S TOENAILS ARE FALLING OFF!"
Raptors with 54 points with 2:11 left in half. Ja. Smith just yanked after Tyler Hansbrough outbattled him for offensive board. Low energy.
Marcus Smart will start for the Celtics tonight. And so it begins...
This would be Wade's first absence this season due to a knee if he does not play.
(Severe Foot Blister would be a decent band name though)
DeMarco sucks now. Run Romo more...
So, in the end, Dolphins won . . . and done.
So Heat could be down four players (Wade, Bosh, McRoberts, Whiteside) and two toenails tonight (Whiteside, big toe and one next to it).
If Steve Ross makes a decision on Joe Philbin based on that game, there's no hope
Four Knicks were near the ball on that Toronto miss and Tyler Hansbrough was the only one to make a play for the rebound and got it.
Who needs Johnny Football when Tony Romo can run like that?
Wade injured his knee vs Washington and was limping around pretty badly before finishing the game. Said afterward he thought he was fine.
Heat clarifies Whiteside does not have knee issue, only toenail issues. Sort of like Josh McRoberts' blister, but different.
Drake loves Tyler Hansbrough's hustle, caused by him missing yet another tip-in.
Remember that time a critical cowboy game started and you spaced out and missed the beginning cuz you watched MIA collect a safety vs MIN?
I'm going to go way out on a limb here: Khalil Mack might turn out to be something
No Deron Williams or Brook Lopez for the Nets. Nothing from the league about Drummond re: suspension
Hassan Whiteside is also a game time decision because of an issue with his toes. He was injured on Friday, lost two toe nails on a landing.
I'm not sure what the conversion rate is but Toronto has 54 points with 4:01 left in the first half.
The next loss is Knicks 25th. Two years ago they didn't lose 25 games until March 14...which is why your owner couldn't wait to break it up
A nice first-down run followed by two head-scratching throws. 3-and-out Raiders
Correction from the Heat-- Hassan Whiteside's knee is fine. The issue is he got two toenails ripped completely off against Washington.
Lowry ends up in the tunnel after diving to save a loose ball, races back to join his teammates on offence.
Lowry's amazing. Just saved a ball and ran halfway into the tunnel.
Erik Spoelstra right now talking Reno Bighorns hoops.
I'm not sure how this is going to end, but the Knicks are giving up a lot of points to the Raptors right now.
The Heat have given no timetable whatsoever for Bosh's return. Spoelstra does not rule him out beyond each day's game/practice.
At least Derek Fisher is wearing a cool-looking suit.
No real update on Bosh (strained calf). Still exercising/resting and getting treatment.
Hassan Whiteside is also a game-time decision. He lost two toenails in game on Friday.
Bosh still getting treatment, rest, and still out.
Birdman will play tonight despite ankle issue.
New Magic starters tonight: Payton, Oladipo, Harris, O'Quinn and Vucevic.
Kyle Lowry's approximate PER so far this afternoon: ∞
Hassan Whiteside also had two toenails ripped off on that play.
Hassan also lost two toenails in his incident.
Wade is questionable with a knee contusion. Game-time decision.
Hassan Whiteside also has a bruised knee and might not be available for Heat.
Hassan Whiteside also has a knee contusion and is being evaluated now.
Erik Spoelstra says Wade has a bruised knee that staff is examining right now. Uncertain for tonight vs Boston.
Spoelstra says Wade has knee contusion and is being looked at now.
Hope you like loose ball fouls.
Deron Williams (calf) is out for tonight's game against the Detroit Pistons. Jarrett Jack will make his first start for the Brooklyn Nets.
Elite scorers have the turn around jumper in their arsenal. Matt Bonner has the turnaround one-handed jump hook.
Lionel Hollins says that "the light has come on" for Mason Plumlee recently; is very eased with how he's played.
Jarrett Jack will start in place of Deron Williams.
Deron out. Jack in
Deron Williams is out. Jarrett Jack will start in his place.
Interesting (to me) that the top 2 "mid-majors" in the country, Gonzaga and Wichita State, don't fund football programs. Wave of the future?
Looks like Nick Young won't be suspended. Lakers dodged one there. Coming up on 90 mins until tip-off vs. Sacramento.
Greivis Vasquez is terrific backup point guard, especially when you see him in comparison to Larkin-Pablo.
Ty Corbin media availability. It’s like being home again. He answers second question with, “It is what it is.”
Willie Green will not play tonight because he has flu-like symptoms. Devyn Marble will be activated.
That ol' slump-busting Knicks D is helping out Greivis Vasquez.
All I want for Christmas is an NBA title ! http://t.co/FBVyIHyeCQ
Omri Casspi is on the floor and probable to return today. http://t.co/OYBiy5FCCq
Drake's on the phone.
Dolphins are officially eliminated from the playoffs regardless of how this game ends. Steelers have won.
They were 2 points away from blowing a 27 point lead but North Texas hung on for a nice win over Creighton
Raps swing it all the way around the floor for Vasquez floater. Haven't seen much of that ball movement this year, not that it's hurt them.
Rex is a beaten down man and this postgame presser was simply more evidence
It'll be interesting to see if Chris Andersen is active tonight vs Boston. Tweaked his ankle Friday.
reliable 3-point shooters in Dirk, Parsons and Jefferson.
One-handed catch by Beckham, blah blah blah
In the second, also looks like San Antonio threw out some 2-3 zone action defensively. Smart strategy since Dallas only has three...
Raptors put Knicks on the line 19 times in first half last week (NY's per game avg). 8 of NY's 25 first-quarter pts came at the line today
Raptors up 8 after 1Q, shooting 50% from the field, 5-of-12 from 3pt range. Ross leads all scorers with 10, Melo has 9 for NY
Between the Melo dime to Dalembert and Pablo's pass to Larkin, Knicks had some really good-looking passes in that 1Q.
Raps up 33-25 after a quarter. James Johnson starting assignment derailed by two early fouls.
Raps up 33-25 after a q. Raps have already attempted 12 threes, have hit 5 of 'em.
their defensive isn't in a rhythm and it's usable to throw off the flow of their opponent on offense.
I screwed up the David Lee update. He's expected to play Monday vs. Sacramento and Tuesday vs. the Lakers.
Also looks like the Spurs once more ran a lot of their 1-3-1 Defensive set. As Austin Daye recently told me, it's a set to use when..
And to think I had the Bears playing the Saints in the NFC title game . Whatever !
Young will be fined $2,000, which is automatic after a flagrant 2. But NBA didn't impose any additional fine
Dirk shoots 3-pointers like he's wide open. Took 1 in the 2Q with a man right under him. With the height, shot release, Dirk might see open
Drake is here and I'm pretty sure he's thinking he could score on Tim Hardaway easier than in the Kentucky layup line.
Get your Knicks tickets here ... http://t.co/2VzXStpwjt
I imagine Wally Rig watching the Bears' tape today: "Don't throw it to Stone Hands!"
I still go with Clausen vs Vikings
NFL going to take some big coin from Lions players after today
The Jets lost.
Kobe's Best vs the Kings: 51, 48, 42, 40, 40, 39, 39, 38, 38, 38, 38, 38, 38, 38, 36, 36, 36, 36, 36
Lions once again lead NFL in cheap shots
Solid score by Kyle Anderson in the first quarter last night: Right hand dribble behind the back to left, then fading jumper.
Spurs must win at least 2 of next 5 games to avoid first losing December since 1996-97, which was also their last December w/o Tim Duncan.
You get 'em Clausen!
Underrated addition for Maryland this season -- assistant coach Cliff Warren.
Clausen, fired up...
Greg Stiemsma low key one of the best bench celebrators in the league that nobody talks about.
Lowry defends Melo at rim without fouling. Melo misses. Vasquez gets 3 in transition. Lowry is good.
I'm in Cleveland. Browns fans sound like Knicks fans.
I'm told NBA is not punishing Nick Young with any suspension for his flagrant foul 2 in Friday's game vs OKC. So he will suit up today
Phil Forte just hit a shot from Norman.
Bulls list Rose (illness), Noah (ankle), Gibson (ankle), and Gasol (chest contusion) as probable for tomorrow. McDermott out, obviously.
Steve Kerr said he'll bring David Lee off the bench and play him in short stints between the 1st-2nd quarters and 3rd-4th quarters.
How do you get offsides on two straight plays?
Fifteen years of mostly-uninterrupted dominance in professional sports is unheard of in this day and age. Yet, the Patriots keep rolling.
As a fan of a rival AFC East team, I hope the Jets are dumb enough to fire Rex Ryan. He's a good coach.
Wish Cavs-Grizzlies was on NBA TV instead of Pistons-Nets
6-11 2017 Nick Richards has Kansas, Villanova, UConn among schools showing early interest. Not too focused on recruiting.Kid is really good.
That'll do you. Patriots are two knees from clinching a first-round bye and a Broncos loss away from home-field thorughout
Bulls list Rose (illness), Gibson (right ankle), Noah (right ankle) and Gasol (chest contusion) all probable vs. Raptors.
If you're still watching football - Knicks call TO down 15-7, out rebounded, Lowry 3-pter, Terrence Ross dunk...Same as it ever was.
Everything coming up T-Ross early - has 10 of the Raptors first 15 points. His second triple forced a NY timeout. Raps by 8
Toronto up 15-7 already after 6 minutes. Ross monster dunk off offensive rebound. Offensive foul on Melo. Ross 3-pointer. Went quick.
Since I don't play fantasy football, is Flynn taking the knee helping Rodgers' fantasy owners...
Two quick fouls for newly-minted starter James Johnson. Greivis Vasquez replaces him and the Raptors will go small. Ross on Melo
It's almost like he was saying UT beating the Aggies made it extra-special. But we all know better.
Two early fouls for Johnson ... bloom is off the rose.
James Johnson picks up his second foul. Problematic!
Pittsburgh goes up 20-9 on KC with 4 minutes left, which -- if this holds -- would eliminate Dolphins from playoff contention.
Calderon said pre-game he felt good for DeRozan, Amir, JV, Lowry and Dwane, which was different than the maliciousness we all expected.
Vs Tor Rose (illness) is probable. Gibson (right ankle) is probable Gasol (left chest contusion) is probable Noah (right ankle) is probable
David Lee (left hamstring) made it through Sunday's practice and believes he'll play Tuesday vs. Sacramento.
You just don't mess with a Sunshine catch.
South Carolina coach Frank Martin with an upgrade to his normal wardrobe for today's game. http://t.co/u3csRW5zvT
And JJ follows that up with a block on Quincy Acy. It's all JJ right now.
James Johnson with a put-back dunk and a block of Quincy Acy to start the game.
JJ follows up a Lowry miss with the put back jam.
Welcome back, Mona Sundays.
For those of you wondering, there’s been no word if Nick Young will be suspended for today’s game against the Kings.
Calderon gets solid applause at the ACC. Played 8 seasons in Toronto. They love their former Raps. Acy got swarmed in locker room by media.
Nice ovation for Jose Calderon as he is announced with the Knicks starters.
Vince Wilfork got a piece of that FG attempt, mostly because Wilfork is an animal.
Jose Calderon gets a really nice applause from the Raptors crowd during starting-lineup intros. Played several yrs here in Toronto.
Nice hand for Calderon, introduced as a Knick starter.
Horrible play by Tim Jennings..could be a turn around play of the game
Greivis Vasquez wishes all a merry christmas and a happy new year. Humbly.
Greivis Vasquez will "say a few words" to the fans ahead of the holiday season. I'll let you know when he wraps up in 20 minutes or so
We're getting the Rex emotional spectrum here in the second half. Pissed, exuberant, super-pissed all since the half. I like his range.
16 different starting lineups in their first 28 games pretty much explains the Spurs' 17-11 start. Creating consistency & rhythm is tough
If Bears win this game..every members of the Bears should get a game ball...and send one Fed Ex to Raiola...
Ha, Rex's reaction to that Marcus Williams INT was tremendous. Someone needs to .GIF that immediately
