Then comes the beauty, when Thibs was asked about playing in the altitude - "It's beautiful... I mean what... it's like playing everywhere..
The DMC-Asik matchup will be fun. DMC's playing at a crazy high level right now & Asik is one of the few who can try to guard him one-on-one
So, driving to Brooklyn from New Jersey might be a wee bit tough tonight
The correction came from a reporter that said, "You mean ankle?'' Thibs snaps back, "Yeah.''
Talkin w @Natekreckman to Aqib about hamstring: “It felt good today, better than I thought would be.” Can't confirm if he'll play at KC tho.
Poor Thibs. He rules Taj Gibson out - considering Gibson is in Chicago - pretty obvious. Then says it's a knee.
Showed my son Desmond my post op belly button scar. His response? "Oh my God! (makes vomit sound) Get me away from that!" (runs out of room)
Norris Cole wishes fans happy Thanksgiving at midcourt pregame.
Wizards close 1Q on 7-0 run. Trail 22-19. Shot 5 of 18 FG. Wall with 10 points. Millsap 5 & 6.
Krzyzewski ... Krzyzewski ... Krzyzewski ... Antetokuonmpo ... Antetokounmpo ... Antetokounmpo. ...
Noah probably needs the day off more than Rose and Pau do.
Steph Curry-Klay Thompson have just as many or more combined 3-pts (68) as four other NBA teams: LAL (68), MIN (66), WAS (56), SAC (61).
Thibs says Noah is out knee/eye. Hinrich is in. Gibson still in Chicago and Thibs says he's still day to day. Rose and Gasol will play.
Joakim is out...left knee and left eye. Kirk is a go.
Slow start for Wizards 2 for 13 shooting. Trailed by as many as 9 to Hawks. 2:44 left in first quarter 19-12 Atlanta
Penn has't won this pairing since 2006-07, Dunphy's first year at Temple.
Penn's Jones, very active on the inside, gives the Quakers their first lead on a 3-point play. 18-17 with 9:06 left in the first half.
Hard to get much from a post-up like this with this lineup and this spacing. Hawks just cheating off non-shooters. http://t.co/s6Xl7WIHAO
Porter checks in for Pierce, who has missed his first 5 shots.
This is always motivation to get away from the computer and go out my door for a quick run. http://t.co/1SGrtzzyW5
It's really a bad look for the product. I know I'm not the only one this has happened to.
A month after purchasing League Pass, I still don't have broadband access.
With Ramon Sessions starting for the Kings tonight, it appears PG Darren Collison (quad) will join Rudy Gay (Achilles) on injury list.
Casspi starts for Gay, Sessions for Collison
Pelicans starting lineup tonight: Omer Asik at center, Tyreke Evans at SG, Darius Miller at SF, Jrue Holiday at PG and Anthony Davis at PF.
The Heat's special home red uniforms? Also known as the road red uniforms.
Penn's Dylan JOnes just exploded down themiddle and slammed on Devontae Watson. Owls up 13-10
Wizards feeding Gortat early and often. Leads to Al Horford picking up two fouls in less than three minutes.
Hinrich on the court now, seeing if that chest will allow him to play.
Mon. was the 1st game Raymond Felton was eligible 2 play. But he was on the inactive list, Rick Carlisle said, due to a "coach's decision."
Pelicans say center Omer Asik will play tonight vs. Kings after missing the past four games with lower back pain.
Everyone got the memo. LeBron doesn't play for Hawks. http://t.co/BuQfzHZsdC
This week's College Football Playoff poll: 1. Bama 2. Oregon 3. Florida St. 4. Miss. St. 5. TCU 6. Ohio State 7. Baylor
Archie woulda put the Rammies in
The Lakers have been awarded a $4.85 million disabled player exception for Steve Nash according to a league source.
Same for Florida ST. Beat a good ND opponent on Oct 28. Injuries, basically a deflated team, not always fair to say, "win isnt as good now"
What is the committee's explanation for Marshall (which beat ONE team w a winning record) cracking the top 25 .. and Colorado St not
GSW at MIA: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; MIA -- Cole, Chalmers, Deng, Williams, Bosh. Out: Lee; Wade/Andersen.
Welcome to Bulls ball http://t.co/6lGpLgkFVc
I'm not going to lie, kind of hard to watch the Panda press conference today.
As teams rise/fall in the rankings, it doesn't always mean the losing opponent was actually worse when they lost. AUB beats #4 Miss but now?
Winless Quakers avearging 69.7 but giving up 77.7 per game
Owls just averaging 56.5 points per game through 4 games.
“If only the Thunder could count on KD to not be injured sooner,” - shoulder-shrugging copy editor from the Oklahoman http://t.co/KUHeO2MpEn
About to tip Penn at Temple, B-5 opener.
Andrew Bogut will play and start for Warriors.
Bogut will start, according to the Warriors.
Andrew Bogut will start.
King PG. Darren Collison is out tonight in New Orleans
Van Gundy had high praise for Bucks' Knight: "He's very good on the attack now. He's shooting the ball well now. He's a very good player."
Malone said his decision on the lineup would depend on if Collison played but didn't say how who he'd go with
Darren Collison is officially out tonight against the Pelicans.
Van Gundy said this will be Dinwiddie's first test at PG: "He's still got to get over the nervousness and he's got a ton to learn."
Stan Van Gundy on missing Jennings: "What it changes obviously is your bench dynamic. Spencer has played very little this year."
Wade and Birdman officially inactive.
Does anyone have a clear feed of Jarrett Jack's reaction to Brandon KNight blowing that layup last week? Also Bucks bench reaction?
So: Cole, Chalmers, Williams, Deng and Bosh.
Collison has a left quad contusion. Second game he's missed this season
Cole officially listed as a Heat starter.
Khris Middleton will come off bench at 2 guard spot, Kidd said.
"He's prepared himself to start," Kidd said of Mayo. "He's been one of the guys we've asked to do a lot of different things."
"We looked at it at practice yesterday and as coaches we thought it looked good," Kidd said of Mayo in first unit.
Eric Moreland will meet the Kings in Houston
Brandon Knight will play tonight for the Bucks. He was questionable with a calf strain
Dinwiddie has played total of 22 minutes this season. He is 6-6 guard from Colorado.
Kings hopeful that forward Rudy Gay (Achilles) will return to action Friday at Spurs, source said. Gay missing tonight's game at Pelicans.
And new stadium has added a new layer of security paranoia to a franchise that is paranoid anyway.
New stadium has 1) Poured $$ into the Yorks' pockets & now others want a share; 2) changed the logistics of offices, locker room, etc...
Hearing Nolan Smith was picked up off waivers by the Delaware 87ers.
Pistons guard Brandon Jennings (sprained left thumb) out against Bucks tonight. D.J. Augustin will start with Spencer Dinwiddie in reserve.
Tim Ducan never averaged less than 38.7 minutes per during his first six seasons. He missed a total of 9 games, including 8 in one season.
No group likes voting on things (and then arguing about those votes) more than people who cover college football.
FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) _ Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson says `no way' Brown had his hands up when fatally shot.
Malone says Gay could be out a few days to rest. Will decide starting lineup when he knows if Collision (quad) can play tonight.
Jed and Trent fans don't want anybody near their players. I get that. Enjoy those PSls.
Let's be honest, very few of these guys want to "Be Like Mike."
There was a 3-year stretch where Michael Jordan averaged 40-plus minutes and missed just one game. What were Jordan & Phil Jackson thinking?
Brandon Knight will start for Bucks. Was listed questionable with right quad strain.
During Chicago's six championships seasons Michael Jordan had the audacity to average 37 minutes, 38.8, 39.3, 37.7, 37.9 38.8.
Headed over to WIZ HAWKS. Sometimes I forget the Hawks even exist, so if the Wizards lose, it's probably my fault for motivating Jeff Teague
From my trip to windy (40 mph!!!) Cleveland, a picture of The King. And, oh yeah, LeBron too!!! http://t.co/OA4b5MfKVW
Here's one; When Michael Jordan was 39 years old he averaged 37 mins per over 82 games. Derrick Rose, just 26, is at 36.7...for his career!
Wolters will not make 2-game trip to Minneapolis and Detroit.
Off to Florida for the second-straight Tuesday. Last week: business. This week: golf, turkey, pumpkin pie, family and Eagles football.
Only in today's NBA are coaches criticized for playing their best players big minutes. Check out Jordan, Ewing, Stockton, Malone, Duncan.
First start for O.J. Mayo tonight, coach Jason Kidd said in pregame comments. Nate Wolters out with flu.
Spurs vs. Pacers tmw night: Bonner (sick), probable; Joseph (ankle), doubtful; Mills (shoulder surgery), out; Splitter (calf), out.
The good news if you're a Spurs fan - Marco Belinelli is no longer on the injury report. One would assume he's ready for regular minutes now
Andrew Bogut to be evaluated by Miami's team doctor.
Spurs' injury situation: Bonner (stomach virus), Joseph (sprained left ankle), Mills (right shoulder), and Splitter (tightness, right calf)
From Spurs: Matt Bonner listed as probable, Cory Joseph questionable, Patty Mills & Tiago Splitter will be out vs. Pacers WED.
Kris Humphries will start in place of Nene. Along with Temple Pierce Wall Gortat.
Erik Spoelstra's 13-word press conference before quickly walking out. http://t.co/e5yTbWRaUr
B/c of headaches, Bogut didn't sleep well last night. He said the headaches & fluid under his eye were bothersome but he thought he'd play.
In the 17 minutes Joakim Noah was on the bench last night. The Jazz outscored the Bulls by 17 points. Top 5 player in the NBA
The Warriors could also use the lineup the closed with in OKC: Curry, Thompson, Iguodala, Barnes and Green, if Bogut can't go.
Because both Miami's center and power forward stretch the floor, Mo Speights would probably start for Bogut, but Kerr wouldn't give it up.
Steve Kerr said Andrew Bogut didn't sleep well last night due to orbital contusion.
Now Steve Kerr isn't sure about Andrew Bogut's availability
Andrew Bogut downgraded to questionable for Warriors due to blow to face he took Sunday in Oklahoma City.
Steve Kerr sounds a little less confident that Andrew Bogut will play tonight than he did at shootaround. Bogut with team doctor right now.
Steve Kerr calls Chris Bosh "one of my favorite players in the league," cites his pick and roll coverage
This Richard Sherman presser is craaazy. Going in on the NFL.

Fun with stats --- whats more stunning - that Anthony Davis' PER is still unconscious at 35.96 or that Brandan Wright trails him with 30.52
Fun with stats --- the worst differential belongs to the Philadelphia 76ers who are allowing 105.9 points while posting just 89.9 (-16.0)
Spoelstra's pre-game presser lasted eight seconds.
Fun with stats --- The best differential belongs to the Toronto Raptors who are allowing 95.1 points per game, while posting 106.7 (+11.6)
Fun with stats --- On the flip side, the Dallas Mavericks lead the league in scoring at 109.3 per game.
Dwyane Wade and Chris Andersen are out for Miami, but Norris Cole will return from his dislocated middle finger tonight vs. the Warriors.
Fun with stats --- anyone surprised that the San Antonio Spurs are allowing the fewest points allowed in the NBA?
Fun with stats --- while no one was looking - the Portland Trail Blazers have strung together 8 straight wins.
Norris Cole will start.
Fun with stats --- one NBA team remains undefeated at home and in conference --- the 12-2 Memphis Grizzlies.
Spoelstra confirms no change in injury status for the Heat. Dwyane Wade remains out and Norris Cole will play tonight vs Warriors.
While we're on that subject, here's Bobo. Before the baguettes... http://t.co/mXMRy5Xt21

Should've known better than to log onto Facebook today.
John M. Bloss, president of Oregon State when the rivalry began (1894), was a former sergeant in the Union Army during the Civil War.
BYU-Chaminade looks like an old ABA game. Only thing missing is the red/white/blue basketball. Halftime score: 66-43.
Ok. Need to know. I am the king of sweatpants as you know. Acceptable for a movie theater or no?
It was actually hilarious. I have no idea what goes through the minds of the 49ers brass when it pulls something like this.
You're never going to believe this, but Randy Wittman wouldn't reveal the starting lineup during his pregame presser. Nene is out, however.
Yes, the 49ers literally sent security guards into the locker room--where there were NO players--to order reporters out of the locker room.
Within 45 seconds in 3Q last night, Kyle Lowry: turned ball over, blocked shot, stole ball, got assist, got defensive rebound, drew charge.
Party on, Wayne, and party on, Barth.
I really like watching this BYU team play. Would've been nice to see them in the winners bracket
Lakers' Julius Randle was around practice facility today on crutches & boot. Seemed in good spirits
Carmelo's 17.3-point differential on offense ranks third in the NBA, behind Anthony Davis and Chris Paul.
Knicks have been 17.3 pts per 100 plays worse on offense w/out Melo this season. Thats equivalent to diff between the Clippers & Sixers on O

Of course... Jazz ORtg with Burke/Favors/Kanter/whoever: 109.5. Jazz ORtg with Booker/Exum/Gobert: 99.5.

Kings PG Darren Collison (left quad contusion) still listed as questionable tonight and Ramon Sessions (RT knee strain) now probable
The Magic have listed Evan Fournier as questionable to play against the Warriors due to a right quad contusion.
Mo Williams did not practice for a second consecutive day today because he's ill. It'd help a bit if he's better by tomorrow
For years+years, 5-6 seasons were a hallmark for UVA and VT football. So this year's game is a throwback. Maybe they'll wear ugly ol jerseys
Jon Lester once said he wouldn't share a pizza with Hanley Ramirez. Who would he share one with? http://t.co/wmHrZhzEzz
Man it's cold in Detroit wow!
