Pero Antic still the first big off the bench.
Welcome to the party Rick Nash
Made it back to HTX! Game 3 tomorrow, 8 p.m. Hoping both teams had a smoother travel day than I did. Ready to see more awesome basketball.
Here is Tim Duncan's career at Wake Forest - http://t.co/DQ98oJevxY
Millsap has been pretty awful. The nonchalant-ness of his jumper makes it look like he's just out of it, but I guess that's normal.
Ron Harper in the house
20% shooting not really going to get it done.
So here is Jahlil Okafor's single season at Duke... http://t.co/MJDgrYbAzq
This also saves LeBron James' energy on one end when he's guarding DeMarre Carroll right now.
Also a factor: Is offensive player's head down or not? Head down: charge. Head up, trying to make play, more likely than not: Block.
Cavs 11, Hawks 5 with 6:48 left in first quarter. Hawks shooting 2 of 10 from field.
If you could add LeBron to any team in the East, how many would still not win the conference? Two? Three?
Yeah that aint your cup of tea, Korver
Jackson Van Buren of Faith Bible destroyed 2A boys javelin meet record, thrown 198-10. Old record was 187-7. Still 2 rounds left.
Also, if defender "initiates" contact with offensive player, which many do now when trying to slide in late, that's automatic: Block.
If there is value in putting St. Louis on the ice, I'm not seeing it.
The one play you know Dellavedova is going to run with Thompson on pick-and-roll is alley oop.
Paul Millsap needs to find his game quickly for Atlanta
Also, if offensive player makes effort to "slide off" or "change direction" because of defender, than no charge.
Beautiful set by Atlanta. Teague dribble to wing, hits Korver on zipper cut to the top of the key, Millsap then pins down for Teague curling
LeBron holding the ball for a while, then testing whether Carroll can move laterally. Bazemore will be in early.
Fix is making it point of emphasis & asking simple question: Is player out of control or not? Curry, on that play, clearly under control.
Jeff Teague is now 1-for-6 in this series when guarded by Delly.
Carroll looks bad.
Matthew Dellavedova's shot keeps missing to the right. Same thing in Game 1.
I hope these throwbacks include some minutes for Spud Webb.
Carroll is clearly gimpy
Korver Kounter: 🔥
Dellavedova starts by missing a jumper to the right. Was his issue in game 1.
seriously give me one single valid reason why the Hawks don't wear these jerseys all the time, you can't do it
DeMarre Carroll looks like he won't last very long tonight. Ouch.
Hawks broke out the throwbacks tonight.
Hawks going with throwback uniforms.
Huge ovation from Hawks home crowd for DeMarre Carroll when PA announcer introduced him -- "He's back" -- as a starter.
PA announcer just now: "He's baaaaaaaack. DeMaaaaaaaaarrrre Carroll"
Huge ovation for DeMarre Carroll.
Charge/block remains NBA blemish.Too many charges when defenders not there. Easy fix & yet stays unaddressed. Way worse than "Hack-a ..."
DeMarre just ran by me in the tunnel. Not sure what that means.
Lil B healed DeMarre. Remarkable talent.
As I said earlier today during a radio interview, anything DeMarre Carroll can give Atlanta will give it a lift emotionally.
shocked DeMarre Carroll is playing. how well, TBA
DeMarre Carroll will start tonight. Amazing
Cavs center Timofey Mozgov and Cavs player development coach Vitaly Potapenko go over video before Game 2: http://t.co/KOGMW0iu2j
Hawks G-F Thabo Sefolosha (out with season-ending injury sustained in incident with NY police) is at Philips Arena for Game 2.
Really hope Carroll stays as healthy as possible.
Shocked DeMarre Carroll will start for Hawks. Winced through non-contact pregame drills on the practice court.
Notice how they don't say what DeMarre Carroll is starting, though? A puzzle? Rehab? The biggest NBA playoff game in Atlanta history?
DeMarre Carroll has a free agent payday on the line, and is pushing through. Was grimacing in warmups.
24 hrs ago, thought Cavs could sweep. now Kyrie is out and Carroll is in. things change quickly
Hawks forward DeMarre Carroll, who sprained his left knee in Game 1, will start in Game 2 vs. Cavs.
Carroll to start for Hawks
DeMarre Carroll is in the starting lineup for the Hawks.
DeMarre Carroll will start tonight for Hawks. Wow.
DeMarre Carroll is starting. To which I say... wow.
just so everyone knows, it's tendinitis, not tendonitis. don't know why, but it is
DeMarre Carroll will play.
DeMarre Carroll will start.
The Dodgers completed a minor league trade with the White Sox today, acquiring pitcher Eric Surkamp in exchange for pitcher Blake Smith.
Again, while Dwyane Wade may not have pushed through everything in regular season (due to "maintenance"), he always did in the playoffs.
They don't make it easy over there in Communist China to do American social media, which has obviously been well-publicized for years.
Cavs 1-6 without Kyrie in regular season
And, while hardly his fault, Kevin Love is missing his 8th playoff game tonight. Chris Bosh missed 9 of 87 in 4 seasons w/ LeBron.
Pre-draft workouts for Lakers will be held on Tues & Thurs at team’s practice facility in El Segundo. Uncertain which players will attend.
Bandon freshman Sailor Hutton set meet record in 2A girls 1,500, finishing in 4:50:00, won by almost 100 meters.
Since the Kyrie Irving comparison is commonly made, Dwyane Wade missed 1 playoff game (out of 87) in 4 postseasons w/ LeBron. G4, R1, 2013.
Told the likelihood is Carroll is going to try to play.
Lakers will hold pre-draft workouts next Tuesday and Thursday at their practice facility. Currently unclear which prospects will be there
Odd stuff in Atlanta. Half the practice gym is set up as a media room. Dennis Schroder just insisted on making baskets at both ends.
Hawks still making decision on Carroll
not really sure what harm a 2nd MRI would have done. is it not possible something could have happened since 1st one?
This has always been Kyrie's bug-a-boo...as good as he is, he has never been able to stay on the floor
Would be surprised if DeMarre Carroll plays. Too much money at stake in free agency. Dodged a bullet once.
More on Kyrie: His foot is increasingly less of an issue. Taking different meds, doing different exercises. Cavs "hope" he plays Sunday
RE Kyrie: Andrews confirms tendinitis, but "different interpretation" of nature of injury and how to treat.
Delly to start for Kyrie
DeMarre Carroll now being examined in the Hawks training room. Team will make a call in approximately 20 minutes.
Watching Sean O'Sullivan makes me feel like I could be a professional athlete.
Of course that happened. Bryce blast.
Almost forgot, outside of brutal charge call on Curry last night, that Warriors-Rockets game was officiated incredibly well.
Kobe cont'd: "After three years of dealing with this crap, I kind of understand that I don’t want to deal with that anymore.”
More Kobe from March: “If I feel like playing, if I feel like doing the process again, do I enjoy getting up and training every single day?
What's LeBron's greatest achievement? RT for Mo Williams, All-Star. Fav for Matthew Dellavedova, Eastern Conference finals starter.
What Kobe told LA media last March: “As I sit here right now, do I want to play beyond next year? No, but that could change,” he said.
DeMarre Carroll laboring thru warmup drills. Grimacing quite a bit on lateral motions.
Dellavedova to start for Cavs.
(2/2)... Irving is at the arena tonight. Cavaliers hopeful he can play Sunday. Foot, which was also an issue, no longer is. Just knee.
We've come a long way since someone in my wack fantasy league had a team named "Beats by Draymond." Now he's doing Beats by Dre commercials.
Cavs 1-6 without Kyrie Irving this season, 0-4 since January 15.
Hawks DeMarre Carroll is warming up on the practice court, trying to see if he can play. http://t.co/ae2ChEAERW
Some clarity on Irving situation: still diagnosed as tendinitis, but Dr. Andrews had different interpretation/plan on how to treat (1/2)..
DeMarre Carroll going through warmups | http://t.co/um7oosuE0d
Asked Kent Bazemore if he expected to start: "Bud's been poker facing me like he has everybody else."
DeMarre Carroll/Kent Bazemore listed as starter on Hawks preliminary lineup to be posted. Still game-time decision.
Reporter: "How much did being up 1-0 have to do with the decision to rest Kyrie Irving?" David Blatt: "Absolutely none."
Irving flew to Florida with team physician Dr. Richard Parker to meet with Andrews
This morning, there was much talk about "pain tolerance" for Irving. Now, after exam revealed nothing new, it's a "medical decision."
I think the Cavs would take a swap of no Kyrie for no Carroll.
Kyrie Irving had an evaluation with Dr. James Andrews. No MRI per person with knowledge of the trip. Team physician traveled with Irving.
Kyrie Irving traveled to Florida for evaluation where it was confirmed he's battling a bout of tendinitis in knee. There was no MRI taken.
Cavs guard Kyrie Irving saw Dr. James Andrews in Florida today.
Kyrie's knee is why folks shouldn't be so quick to call this race for the Cavs. Not sure they can win this series without him contributing.
Kyrie Irving was evaluated by Dr. James Andrews in Florida. No additional MRI. Exam confirmed what Cavs already knew.
Dr. Parker accompanied Kyrie on Florida flight. Again, no MRI today. Previous imaging on knee showed no tear
Kyrie Irving flew to Florida on Friday morning to be evaluated by Dr. James Andrews. He did not receive an MRI, per the Cavs.
Wish HBO had let Rome go another season or two, finished that series off properly and given GOT more time for source material to progress.
Actually, spokesman clarifies: Irving met Andrews somewhere in Florida. They don't know exactly where
Per team spokesman: Andrews has a Florida shop and that's where Irving went. No MRI
And it was a *sweet* green *suit* jacket for Kyrie Irving by the way haha.
LeBron just came off after some early court work
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has arrived for Game 2.
Blatt doesn't know where Irving saw Dr. Andrews. Presumably in Alabama
Dellavedova got this.
Here's the full release on Irving's status: http://t.co/CPYVZFiyPL
David Blatt won't reveal his starting PG, but there's only one real option, unless he goes with LeBron & spacers.
I think Budenholzer and Blatt should have got together and made a gentleman’s agree here on Irving and Carroll.
Cavs G Kyrie Irving will not play in Game 2 v Hawks. He traveled to see Dr. James Andrews. Tendinitis confirmed. Questionable for Game 3.
David Blatt keeps repeating that it was "a medical decision." Not offering specifics, but that takes the burden off Irving.
Kyrie questionable for Game 3 Sunday; further tests confirmed tendinitis
David Blatt says decision was made by medical staff to hold him out.
Kyrie Irving will not play Game 2. He is questionable for Sunday's Game 3. http://t.co/otzPP57lRS
David Blatt says it was a "medical decision" for Irving to sit tonight
Kyrie Irving is out for Game 2.

When Kyrie Irving walked by me he was wearing a green suite jacket and had a bit of a limp but nothing that looked too bad. We will see.
Pero Antic taking extra shots here on the practice court next to the press conference location. Needs to. He's been bad.
Reporter: "Do you anticipate Paul Millsap playing any small forward tonight?" Mike Budenholzer: "No."
Coach Bud: DeMarre Carroll is going to warm up. He said they'll see how he feels. He's getting treatment. He said he's game-time decision.
DeMarre Carroll is a game-time decision said Mike Budenholzer sounding a lot like Dwane Casey. It's about 98 minutes to game time.
After Budenholzer called DeMarre Carroll a gametime decision, someone said it's almost gametime. Bud said: "Almost time for a decision."
Carroll remains a game-time decision. I will be fascinated to see him stay with LeBron.
Coach Bud: "DeMarre is a game-time decision." Media: "But it's almost game time." Coach Bud: "Then it's almost time to make a decision."
Carroll will warm up, get more treatment, take some shots, move around and see how he feels, Budenholzer said.
Carroll will warm up, take a few shots, get a little more treatment, then the Hawks will make a call.
No official word from Cavs yet but Kyrie Irving arrived at the game with a suit bag. Seems like he'll be in street clothes.
Mike Budenholzer says DeMarre Carroll is still "game-time decision." Told it's close to game-time, he quips, "it's almost time 4 a decision"
Gordon Hayward underwent a minor outpatient surgical procedure last week to address inflammation in his right heel, per Jazz PR.
Carroll still -- and always -- a gametime decision.
Can someone help me out with where the find-replace feature is on Microsoft Word? Thanks

Mike Budenholzer said DeMarre Carroll is a game-time decision.
DeMarre Carroll is still a game-time decision.
Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer just said forward DeMarre Carroll (sprained left knee) is a gametime decision.
Make that Rutgers freshman wing Ryan Johnson will transfer, source confirms
Eh, no matter. Hayward will be fine, and it's good that he's getting that inflammation taken care of.
Call it @kengoe's revenge: I'm covering six state high school track meets at Hayward Field today. Better stretch.
I mean, we saw the Jazz PR crew on Tuesday. Hayward's had two blogs published this week. No mention of a surgical procedure.
Charles Barkely just now to ATL arena workers: "If y'all don't win tonight, I won't see you again"
