Bob Cooney

Brown said today he wanted to keep an eye on Noel's minutes as he was near 35 other night. He'll probably go about 30 tonight.

Joe Cowley

Bulls playing the Pacino - "The inches we need'' speech. Pacino should coach the Bears.

Vincent Goodwill

This is when basketball twitter is fun...and there's a specific reason why

Sam Smith

Terrific Bulls/Cavs game ending as it should with no one winning. 98-98 going into overtime. Heck of a preview for the season

Matt Steinmetz

Yes, & Love's charge earlier did same for charge. RT @StuJackson32: That game tying play by Kyrie just gave continuation fouls bad name.

Earl K. Sneed

Not going to lie, I did not see Love getting that shot. Kyrie or LeBron in a playmaking situation seemed like a better option.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Love (5-for-17) misses at buzzer. Overtime. Wondering if we'll see five more minutes of Iso-Kirk.

Evan Dunlap

Can't tell if final possessions were well defended or just horribly unimaginative

Quixem Ramirez

10 minutes in and the Spurs have 19 points. Phoenix still in single digits.

Jason Jones

Omri Casspi is the first small forward off the bench tonight instead of Derrick Williams. This could change night-to-night.

Jason Lloyd

End 4Q: #Cavs 98, CHI 98. LBJ 28p,8r,4a; Irving 19p,3a; Love 16p,15r. CHI Rose 20p; Gasol 12p,8r. CLE 41%, 11TO; CHI 45%, 15TO

Melissa Rohlin

Couldn't agree more. RT @Ben Bolch I will say this much for Lakers: They still have the better game-night experience. Classy.

Paul Garcia

By starting Daye, Pop's able to go back to a traditional Foreign Legion bench lineup with Joseph, Beli, Manu, Diaw, and Baynes.

Chuck Swirsky

That continuation call is killing me.

Michael Lee

I'm okay with some more basketball. Don't know if CHI is. Wasted a great chance to finish off CLE without Derrick Rose

Sam Amico

Cavs-Bulls tied at 98 despite Kirk Hinrich turning into someone other than Kirk Hinrich. OT in Chicago.

Ben Standig

Right near Verizon Center. Yikes. RT @postlocal: Three shot in downtown DC bit.ly/1sTGHTQ

Dan McCarney

Not like you never see this with the Spurs, but a true 5-nation army right now: Canada, Argentina, France, Italy, Australia.

Chris Fedor

Love against Noah would have been like my 4th option there.

Joe Cowley

This game is like Rocky-Drago, Christmas Night in Russia.

Beckley Mason

It's a good thing Gibson ran straight to Irving there, because Kyrie got way lost on that switch.

James Ham

Omri Casspi and Nik Stauskas to the scorers table for Sacramento.

Geoff Calkins

Tank Jakes doesn't go from house to house on Halloween. The houses come to him.

Chris Haynes

Kevin Love misses a three at the top of the key and we're going to overtime all tied up at 98. #Cavs-Bulls.

Gery Woelfel

Ersan Ilyasova, who played just 12 minutes in opener, has played only five minutes through three quarters. Again, strange.

Chuck Swirsky

Love misfired top side 3---OT here we come ! 98-98

Nick Friedell

Love misses a 3 that would have won it at the buzzer. We are headed to overtime in Chicago.

Sean Highkin

We're headed to overtime.

Vincent Goodwill

I know people think Mark Jackson is terrible but he made a great point. Gotta get into your offense quicker, especially with no Rose

Ben Bolch

I will say this much for Lakers: They still have the better game-night experience. Classy.

Rick Bonnell

I'd be fine with watching OT

Joe Cowley

Now you roll the bus out RT @Nick Friedell: Hinrich airballs a desperation 3 as shot clock expires. LeBron has 3.9 seconds to win the game.

Chris Fedor

Who takes this shot?

Diamond Leung

Andre Iguodala said being named team captain is a sacrifice and joked, "I don't know, I think (Steve Kerr) might have trapped me with that."

Earl K. Sneed

So....who gets the shot for the Cavs??? It's the 1st time to see them in this situation.

Amin Elhassan

Baaaaack to liifeee..

Joe Cowley

Cavs have sent Waiters back to the locker room ... He's not hurt. They just don't want him anywhere near the court.

Nick Friedell

Hinrich airballs a desperation 3 as shot clock expires. LeBron has 3.9 seconds to win the game.

Chuck Swirsky

Hinrich no go---Cavs ball 3 sec left 98-98

Chris Fedor

GREAT D there by Irving and the #Cavs I thought

Josh Newman

No one cares. For real. RT @gumphutch: @Josh Newman obviously chicago and cleveland are the top 2 teams in the east. who is #3?

Amin Elhassan

Clear out for Kirk????

Quixem Ramirez

10-2 Spurs run. Holding Phoenix to 22 FG%. Typical Spurs stuff.

Gery Woelfel

O.J. Mayo having his second straight strong game. Vaguely resembles the player we saw last season.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead #Bucks, 74-73 after three quarter. @Nerlens Noel up to 12 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and a blocked shot

Jason Jones

Collison's ability to play the passing lanes continues to stand out. He's got two steals already.

Andy Greder

High school football final: East Ridge 20, Osseo 17. Raptors advance to a Class 6A, Super 32 state quarterfinal.

Vincent Goodwill

By definition is that a true continuation or did Kyrie get benefit of the doubt?

Dan McCarney

MVP candidate after 1 1/4 games RT @TortiousTroll Tony Parker is 3-4 with 2 rebounds and 2 assists in the first 9 minutes

Wow .... I understand what continuation is, but come on

Ben Standig

Well this game changed quickly. Turrible continuation rule. Buckhantz would still be going off if that happened to the Wiz.

Amin Elhassan

He gathered. Good call RT @Cpowell15: He was in motion to score...m didn't dribble again... RT @Ayo_Nick704: Wowwwwww...hellava continuation

Chris Fedor

I want Marion in the game on this possession.

Derek Bodner

Props to Shved for getting the heave up on time.

Julian Benbow

Kyrie got that 2K continuation.

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves will hold a Ricky news conference tomorrow afternoon at Target Center after shootaround.

Eric Koreen

That was a valid continuation call, so long as you are allowed to take three steps.

Jeff Goodman

That was terrible. RT @David Aldridge: NBA continuation, y'all.

Mike Prada

Right call. Kyrie was into his gather. Looked wrong because Gibson hit him hard, but that’s why you play through the move.

Sam Smith

Cavs tie at 98 with 27.9 seconds remaining. Snell telling Thibs he can't bail out team every night

Rob Peterson

Everyone should know the continuation rule, especially NBA coaches and players...

Dave McMenamin

Kyrie gets a generous continuation call for the and-1 and we have a 98-98 tie with 27.9 seconds left in the 4th.

Chris Fedor

So many things that we want to learn about this #Cavs team and some of those things are happening tonight. Can they got a stop?

Dwain Price

#Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on forward Al-Farouq Aminu: "He’s working on the 3. He’s making progress, as everybody can tell.''

Amin Elhassan

Kyrie just said "HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW @Nate Jones???"

Chris Haynes

All tied at 98 here between the #Cavs and Bulls with 27.9 seconds remaining. Chicago will have the ball after this timeout.

Michael Lee

That's a continuation? Kryie took 2 steps from the FT line with the ball at his hip - after the whistle blew.

Paul Flannery

In the time it took Kyrie to finish that move, I went downstairs and ate a sandwich. Life is one big continuation.

Vincent Goodwill

Great October basketball...playoff intensity

Chuck Swirsky

Irving with continuation -a 3 point play at 98..Bulls ball 27 sec left

Earl K. Sneed

Good call of continuation right there.

Kevin Pelton

The NBA and I have such different definitions of "the act of shooting."

Mark Deeks

Correct enforcement of a bad rule.

Dan McCarney

BAYNES with the slick little reverse layup and Los Spurs are up 18-8 late in the first quarter.

Josh Newman

Can I sign for seven Bulls-Cavs in late May now, or do I need to wait?

Mike Trudell

He's available to play. Still rusty. Scott could use Ellington/Clarkson again. RT @chasetherapperr: @Mike Trudell what about Henry?

David Aldridge

NBA continuation, y'all.

Tony Jones

Great call. Irving never put the ball back on the floor. Classic continuation

Vince Thomas

that's an And-1 no doubt

Paul Coro

Thomas comes in for Bledsoe, who is 0 for 5. Marcus Morris, after five 3s vs. LAL, is 0 for 2 on 3s. No more Lakers. SA 18-8. #SunsVsLakers

Eric Koreen

HAHAHAHA continuation sure!

Dwain Price

"There’s some guys that can space the 3 and still be a factor on the offensive boards. He’s one of them.'' -- RCarlisle on Al-Farouq Aminu

I don't care about the inconsistency on moving screens, but Gibson got away with one on the last Hinrich 3.

Dan Gelston

No UNICEF pennies this year!

Chris Broussard

Working out kinksRT @TheDrP42: @Chris Broussard you think cavs just working out the kinks or sign of things to come???

KC Johnson

Crazy thing is the Bulls are so numb to playing without Derrick that when he goes out, it doesn't seem to faze them. For regular season.

Bill Oram

Exception not necessarily a slam dunk for LAL. Nash injury less clear cut than, say, a broken leg. Need independent Dr. to say he can't play

Tony Jones

That last Hinrich jumper just made me spit tea all over my keyboard in laughter

Buddy Grizzard

Or maybe the Hawks should trade two first rounders for him again then sit him.

Lang Whitaker

Man, Hinrich is roasting Dellevadova.

Chuck Swirsky

Hinrich has scored last 8 Bulls points Bulls 98-93

Earl K. Sneed

Kirk Hinrich thinks he's back at Kansas.

Brendan Bowers

Bummer for Cavs fans that Kirk Hinrich turned into Reggie Miller just now

Chris Herring

Who really needs Derrick Rose anyway?

Kevin Pelton

Kirk Hinrich hero ball.

Michael Lee

Kirk Hinrich crossover, tho

Joe Cowley

No you didn't Kirk Hinrich!!!

Andy Greder

High school football: Osseo misses 29-yard field goal with one minute remaining. Looks like East Ridge can ice a 20-17 win with :55 left.

Mike Trudell

Won't play tonight or tomorrow. We'll see about Tuesday. If not, 5 days off after that. RT @Divine326: @Mike Trudell update on Ryan kelly?

David Aldridge

Kirk Hinrich scores off the Chris Zerbe pass to give the Jayhawks a five-point lead over the Cavs. #itis2001right

Brian Mahoney

Some early season Cavs struggles are understandable, but not sure LeBron and Kyrie dribbling right into turnovers are among them.

Bill Oram

Lakers still awaiting word on disabled player exception for Nash. Process could include independent physical, which hasn't happened yet.

Amin Elhassan

Becuz ur a hatin ass hater RT @Nate Jones: I don't know why I'm not a fan of Kyrie's game.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Interesting choices late.... No Gasol for Bulls. Dellavedova over Waiters for Cavs.

Kristina Leahy

Oh no RT @Sam Smith: Rose "questionable" return with left ankle sprain from second quarter awkward landing

Chris Broussard

Cavs crumbling, Bulls clutch

Vince Thomas

What about this Chi-Town crowd? They feel it. They gotta cold one

Keith Pompey

Scored knotted 66 with 3:00 minutes left in third. This is the 10th tie of the game.

Joe Cowley

Thibs closing with Snell, Hinrich, Gibson, Noah and Dunleavy. He does have more than enough after all.

Earl K. Sneed

The fact that the Bulls are finishing this game without D-Rose says a lot...

Paul Coro

Because Tim Duncan is forever a PF, Austin Daye is the starting center in the box score. He didn't play in the opener. Oh, Pop. #SunsVsspurs

Ben Standig

Better when said by a former teammate. RT @Trevor Booker: Give it to em cap'n Kirk

Sam Smith

Bulls take 96-91 lead with 1:15 remaining in their classic and tried closing game formula of Snell defense and Hinrich shooting threes

Nick Friedell

Kirk Hinrich dressed up as MJ for Halloween. Knocks down two huge triple in the last 2 minutes. Crowd is going bonkers.

Charles F. Gardner

Bucks and 76ers tied at 66 with 3 minutes left in third. Philly coach Brett Brown with a timeout. Mayo has 14 pts in 13 min. for Bucks.

Lang Whitaker

Someone tell Blatt he left Dellavedova in the game.

Mike McGraw

Looked like that last play was designed for a Hinrich 3. Kirk drains two in a row to put #Bulls up 96-91 with 1:15 left.

Joe Freeman

Kaman and Blake are checking in after this dead ball. Dame and Rolo will sit.

Joe Cowley

Bulls have a take-over point guard after all. It's Hinrich. ESPN, put him on the cover next year!!!!

Chris Haynes

Back-to-back turnovers from #Cavs leads to two straight threes by Kirk Hinrich. Bulls up 96-91 with 1:15 left to play.

Chuck Swirsky

Hinrich back to back 3s...96-91 1:15 left 4th

Jonah Ballow

I mean...this is the first week of the NBA.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi's aggressive early, already about to shoot free throws 3 and 4. SA 12-8, Parker with 6 points.

Buddy Grizzard

Bulls should cut Hinrich and try to sign Janero Pargo or Willie Green.

Chris Fedor

Chicago's defense has picked up here. Causing all kinds of issues for the #Cavs

Eric Koreen

Narratively speaking, this game is very Non-LeBron Cavs are Inexperienced-y.

Joe Freeman

Actually been pretty impressed with Sac's D. Aggressive. Working. Contesting shots. Not giving up many easy looks early in game.

Dan McCarney

Another aggressive drive from Leonard, that's his second shooting foul drawn. Nearly lost it but those big ol mitts maintained possession.

Michael Lee

Captain Kirk to the rescue...

Janis Carr

Jordan Farmar expects to hear some booing from Lakers fans tonight.

Joe Cowley

Tony Snell earning some serious trust. Messing with James right now.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Bulls looking a lot like they did last season, with Rose missing. Scrapping on defense, overcoming a series of misses.

Stefan Bondy

Kevin Love is not a good post up player

Ira Winderman

Thanks. That's what happens when you write and watch a game at the same time. RT @Alonsoknows Just heads up.

Paul Garcia

Nice court vision from Austin Daye, there, found Tony for the open layup.

Jon Krawczynski

Sounds about right. RT @Ricky Rubio: T-Wolves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rob Peterson

Bulls are like the Seahawks of basketball: they dare the refs to call every handcheck/foul because they know they won't.

Joe Freeman

Sac opens up a 16-9 lead on #Blazers, forcing Stotts to call a TO. Sac is 8-11 from the field and Gay (4-4, 8pts) is lighting them up.

Jason Jones

Kings out to a 16-9 lead, 5:39 left in the first. Gay has eight points, Portland shooting 30%

KC Johnson

Makeup call. Love got fouled. So did Dunleavy.

Tommy Beer

Bulls interior passing - both tonight and vs New York - has been terrific. Almost Spurs-esque

Amin Elhassan

Beautiful lead pass by Daye to Parker in transition

James Ham

Rudy Gay with a quick 8 in the first quarter on 4/4 shooting.

Chris Haynes

Derrick Rose left the game late in the third quarter and never returned. He is not on the bench.

Amin Elhassan

Bledsoe had Plumlee off that pick and roll but held it too long

Ray Richardson

Someone's happy. RT @Ricky Rubio: T-Wolves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vince Thomas

Can we just get to the playoffs? Cats is out here ballin'.

Darren Wolfson

Kids asleep, kind of. For those asking: straight 4-year, $55M deal for Rubio with $250,000/year added as reachable incentives. #twolves

Bill Herenda

Kings have Gay on Matthews, McLemore on Batum Sac up12-9 Gay with 6 early points

Chris Haynes

Bulls now say they meant Derrick Rose is questionable to return with a left ankle sprain. Not Taj Gibson. Not sure how you mix that one up.

Joe Cowley

And we are learning that Gasol is not a closer in the world of Thibs. Carlos Gasol?

Jerry Zgoda

My brains mush so help me out Wolves Nation: What other guards signed in recent weeks to set market besides Bledsoe, Kemba, Burks, Klay?

Andy Greder

High school football: Possible great finish here at East Ridge. Trailing by 3, Osseo driving at Raptors' 15-yardline with 2:05 left in game.

Joe Cowley

Someone tell D. Waiters he actually has teammates.

Beckley Mason

Ideal defense moves on a string. Cavs moving on a bungee cord. Only when stretched do they react.

Diamond Leung

Steve Kerr on injuries to Lakers, Thunder: "You knock on wood because you know it could be you any time."

Ryen Russillo

Really like the minutes from Tony Snell tonight.

Bill Herenda

Kings have Gay on Matthews, McLemore on Batum

Paul Garcia

Spurs run "Post-3" for Kawhi early, unfortunately, he got double teamed and blocked on the spin.

Joe Cowley

Bulls not flinching without Rose. Used to winning games without him.

Mike McGraw

At first, I thought all this Snell playing time was leverage for final moments of Butler contract talks. But Snell is doing his job.

Sam Smith

Rose "questionable" return with left ankle sprain from second quarter awkward landing

Jason Jones

Early on the Kings already look more energetic ... helps that they're making a few shots ... up 10-7 early.

The D-League 76ers lead the Bucks 62-58 at 5:56 of 3rd q. Upset in the making?

Mike McGraw

Dunleavy checked LeBron for most of game, 4thQ has been all Snell.

Diamond Leung

Steve Kerr unsure of lineup after Livingston back at full strength, but said he could start Iguodala if Harrison plays better w/ Livingston.

Ben Standig

Interesting LeBron stat: Had two or fewer assists four times in 77 games last season. Has only two assists with 4:01 left tonight.

Steve Aschburner

Bulls are Rose-less down stretch, apparently to the back w. trainer. Saps some of the drama of "90-89, 4;01 left," don't it?

Chuck Swirsky

Beautiful passing by the Bulls 90-89 Bulls 401 left 4th

Scott Agness

Stuckey said his foot isn’t bothering him. It’s feeling “a lot better,” and he’s hoping to get up in the 20+ minutes range next week.

Derek Bodner

Imagine how good Wroten would be at getting to the rim if he were capable of dribbing with both hands.

Nick Friedell

The ankle injury Rose sustained was in 2nd quarter. Came back in 3rd. Only had 2 points in 9 minutes during that frame.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead 62-58 with with 5:56 left in third on @Tony Wroten's layup. He has 14 points and four assists to lead all scorers

Bill Oram

One more serious injury and LAL eligible for roster hardship to add 16th player. Four guys must miss three games, be out for two more weeks

Janis Carr

Quixem Ramirez

Kawhi’s cornrows are already in midseason form.

Bob Cooney

The speed and quickness Wroten is really impressive. Gets to basket so easily at times

Gery Woelfel

Kidd pulls Parker and then Sanders just 4 minutes into second half. Strange. Both are playing well.

Mike McGraw

So far, answer is neither. Hinrich went in for Brooks. Ankle must be bothering Rose.

Charles F. Gardner

Bucks down 4 and Kidd calls a timeout. Wroten getting to basket with ease and now has 14 pts.

Lang Whitaker

OH GOOD THE LAKERS ARE ON LATER TONIGHT

Tommy Beer

LeBron has seemed strangely disengaged in these first couple if games...

Amin Elhassan

Austin Daye too frail to guard Markieff Morris one on one

Dan McCarney

It's not like we've never seen Popovich throw out a weird lineup before...

Ethan J. Skolnick

My mistake on Gibson. He's back.

Ben Standig

That was a crazy great FB shot by Kyrie, wow.

Charles F. Gardner

Giannis in at 4 spot now and Henson at 5 with Dudley at 3. Now Mayo for Dudley.

Sam Smith

Looks like Bulls finishing game without Rose as Hinrich in at 5 minutes and tied at 86. Rose to locker room with trainer. No word yet why.

Paul Coro

The #Suns were assessed a delay of game warning ... before tip-off! #SunsVsSpurs

Derrick wasn't moving right on that ankle this half RT @KC Johnson: Don't see Rose on the bench

Dan McCarney

Exactly what I was talking the other day RE: Duncan and the positional charade. Austin Daye starts, and they list him at...center.

Quixem Ramirez

Austin Daye is starting at center. Pop is a magician. Or a troll. Maybe both.

Joe Cowley

Taj Gibson back in the game, Rose MIA.

Quixem Ramirez

Spurs starters: Parker, Green, Kawhi, Duncan, Daye.

KC Johnson

Don't see Rose on the bench.

Keith Pompey

But Knight answers at the other end with a layup as Bucks lead 58-57

Scott Agness

Got zippo from Roy after each of the first two games. First game he turned his back. Tonight: “We have to watch the film. We’ll see.” Sweet.

Rick Bonnell

Chuck Swirsky

Gibson back on the floor

Keith Pompey

Chris Herring

Clearly diff players, but Snell's development kinda reminds me of Butler's while Deng was hurt. Unplayable in 1st yr, but steps up in 2nd yr

Andy Greder

High school football: East Ridge 20, Osseo 17, with 5:38 left. Grant Ryerse connects on a 38-yard field goal. Had distance from 48.

Gibson is about to check back into the game.

Mike McGraw

Tough call for Thibs. Has to put Rose back in, but Brooks playing very well. Does he trust Brooks' defense enough to play both?

Jon Krawczynski

As some have pointed out, Dragic, Rondo both likely to get big deals next summer and could push past Rubio. That list was as it stands now

Joe Cowley

Gibson questionable with left ankle, and Rose looks beat up.

Rob Peterson

How many PnRs have the Cavs run with Irving-Bron or Irving-Love?

Mike Monroe

Austin Daye didn't play vs. Mavericks but he's starting for #Spurs vs. #Suns ... the always unpredictable Popovich.

Jon Krawczynski

Wolves still have to overpay as well. They're not winning yet and in less desirable market. Flip, Milt hope to change that

Mike McGraw

Gasol with 16 shots, 3 assists. Thought he was supposed to be a passer?

Chuck Swirsky

What a ballgame 86-84 Cavs 6 min left..hope you're enjoying the broadcast.....

Scott Agness

Stuckey: "We came out flat in the third quarter. We had a lead and they just came out and wanted it more. That killed the vibe of the game."

Chris Haynes

This is one heck of potential Eastern Conference Finals preview. These two teams are neck and neck.

Derek Bodner

Tony Wroten attacks the basket and gets to the line, I'll give him that.

That's Bulls' first lead since final minute of 1st quarter.

Bulls tie it up at 82

Jeff Wade

So do the Bulls and Cavs play at least 10 times this year?

Michael Lee

Aaron Brooks & Tony Snell have brought CHI all the way back. Like everybody expected

Nick Friedell

Biggest moments of Snell's young career right here. He's got crunch time minutes and is guarding LeBron.

Ira Winderman

No extension now for Norris Cole, with real work for Heat/Cole likely to come next summer. bit.ly/1tJUrFD

Keith Pompey

Parker missed both, @Nerlens Noel grabs the rebound

Bob Cooney

Noel very under control tonight and playing well.

This is where the Cavaliers’ lack of familiarity will hurt. Not a lot of trust built up in tight situations.

Tony Snell has quietly given Thibs some good minutes tonight. He's got 8 points and is playing with confidence.

Feel like Cleveland is gonna be really poor at defending the 3-point line this year. Their perimeter D needs so much work.
