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.
Bulls playing the Pacino - "The inches we need'' speech. Pacino should coach the Bears.
This is when basketball twitter is fun...and there's a specific reason why
Terrific Bulls/Cavs game ending as it should with no one winning. 98-98 going into overtime. Heck of a preview for the season
Bulls 14 blocks
Not going to lie, I did not see Love getting that shot. Kyrie or LeBron in a playmaking situation seemed like a better option.
Love (5-for-17) misses at buzzer. Overtime. Wondering if we'll see five more minutes of Iso-Kirk.
Can't tell if final possessions were well defended or just horribly unimaginative
10 minutes in and the Spurs have 19 points. Phoenix still in single digits.
Omri Casspi is the first small forward off the bench tonight instead of Derrick Williams. This could change night-to-night.
By starting Daye, Pop's able to go back to a traditional Foreign Legion bench lineup with Joseph, Beli, Manu, Diaw, and Baynes.
That continuation call is killing me.
I'm okay with some more basketball. Don't know if CHI is. Wasted a great chance to finish off CLE without Derrick Rose
Cavs-Bulls tied at 98 despite Kirk Hinrich turning into someone other than Kirk Hinrich. OT in Chicago.
Not like you never see this with the Spurs, but a true 5-nation army right now: Canada, Argentina, France, Italy, Australia.
Love against Noah would have been like my 4th option there.
This game is like Rocky-Drago, Christmas Night in Russia.
It's a good thing Gibson ran straight to Irving there, because Kyrie got way lost on that switch.
Omri Casspi and Nik Stauskas to the scorers table for Sacramento.
Tank Jakes doesn't go from house to house on Halloween. The houses come to him.
Ersan Ilyasova, who played just 12 minutes in opener, has played only five minutes through three quarters. Again, strange.
Love misfired top side 3---OT here we come ! 98-98
Love misses a 3 that would have won it at the buzzer. We are headed to overtime in Chicago.
We're headed to overtime.
I know people think Mark Jackson is terrible but he made a great point. Gotta get into your offense quicker, especially with no Rose
I will say this much for Lakers: They still have the better game-night experience. Classy.
I'd be fine with watching OT
Who takes this shot?
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."
So....who gets the shot for the Cavs??? It's the 1st time to see them in this situation.
Baaaaack to liifeee..
Cavs have sent Waiters back to the locker room ... He's not hurt. They just don't want him anywhere near the court.
Hinrich airballs a desperation 3 as shot clock expires. LeBron has 3.9 seconds to win the game.
Hinrich no go---Cavs ball 3 sec left 98-98
Annnnnnd, that's where they miss Rose
LBJ for the win
After 3: Bucks trail 74-73. Mayo has 15 for MKE. Wroten 14, Noel and Thompson 12 for Philly.
Clear out for Kirk????
10-2 Spurs run. Holding Phoenix to 22 FG%. Typical Spurs stuff.
O.J. Mayo having his second straight strong game. Vaguely resembles the player we saw last season.
Collison's ability to play the passing lanes continues to stand out. He's got two steals already.
High school football final: East Ridge 20, Osseo 17. Raptors advance to a Class 6A, Super 32 state quarterfinal.
By definition is that a true continuation or did Kyrie get benefit of the doubt?
Tulsa QB is 0/7 in second half, no first downs. And y'all thought I was joking about Tank Jakes?
Wow .... I understand what continuation is, but come on
Well this game changed quickly. Turrible continuation rule. Buckhantz would still be going off if that happened to the Wiz.
I want Marion in the game on this possession.
Props to Shved for getting the heave up on time.
Kyrie got that 2K continuation.
Wolves will hold a Ricky news conference tomorrow afternoon at Target Center after shootaround.
That was a valid continuation call, so long as you are allowed to take three steps.
Right call. Kyrie was into his gather. Looked wrong because Gibson hit him hard, but that’s why you play through the move.
Cavs tie at 98 with 27.9 seconds remaining. Snell telling Thibs he can't bail out team every night
Everyone should know the continuation rule, especially NBA coaches and players...
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.
That's a continuation? Kryie took 2 steps from the FT line with the ball at his hip - after the whistle blew.
In the time it took Kyrie to finish that move, I went downstairs and ate a sandwich. Life is one big continuation.
Great October basketball...playoff intensity
Irving with continuation -a 3 point play at 98..Bulls ball 27 sec left
Good call of continuation right there.
The NBA and I have such different definitions of "the act of shooting."
Correct enforcement of a bad rule.
BAYNES with the slick little reverse layup and Los Spurs are up 18-8 late in the first quarter.
Can I sign for seven Bulls-Cavs in late May now, or do I need to wait?
NBA continuation, y'all.
Great call. Irving never put the ball back on the floor. Classic continuation
that's an And-1 no doubt
HAHAHAHA continuation sure!
"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
A little one-legged fadeaway, Dirk style, for LA on the right block. Hmmmm.
Hinrich's best role since Team America http://t.co/JGTt2CXr43
I'm generally a Delly fan, but I'm not sure why he's in the game right now.
Lakers media may soon be applying for a bored beat writer exception.
Kirk Hinrich dressing up as Michael Jordan for Halloween.
After drawing that last charge, Blake gets up, stares down Collison and works out jaw. Took a shot in the mouth on that one.
This is Kirk Hinrich's finest moment.
Hinrich with last eight Bulls points as sculptors begin final preparations for Hinrich statue
Hinrich is still so clutch.
LeBron will be looking to sign with the Spurs by next week.
Kirk Hinrich. Wow.
I don't care about the inconsistency on moving screens, but Gibson got away with one on the last Hinrich 3.
No UNICEF pennies this year!
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.
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
That last Hinrich jumper just made me spit tea all over my keyboard in laughter
Or maybe the Hawks should trade two first rounders for him again then sit him.
Man, Hinrich is roasting Dellevadova.
Hinrich has scored last 8 Bulls points Bulls 98-93
Kirk Hinrich thinks he's back at Kansas.
KIRK HINRICH GAME
Bummer for Cavs fans that Kirk Hinrich turned into Reggie Miller just now
Who really needs Derrick Rose anyway?
Kirk Hinrich hero ball.
Kirk Hinrich crossover, tho
No you didn't Kirk Hinrich!!!
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.
Some early season Cavs struggles are understandable, but not sure LeBron and Kyrie dribbling right into turnovers are among them.
Lakers still awaiting word on disabled player exception for Nash. Process could include independent physical, which hasn't happened yet.
Interesting choices late.... No Gasol for Bulls. Dellavedova over Waiters for Cavs.
Cavs crumbling, Bulls clutch
What about this Chi-Town crowd? They feel it. They gotta cold one
Scored knotted 66 with 3:00 minutes left in third. This is the 10th tie of the game.
Thibs closing with Snell, Hinrich, Gibson, Noah and Dunleavy. He does have more than enough after all.
The fact that the Bulls are finishing this game without D-Rose says a lot...
Bulls take 96-91 lead with 1:15 remaining in their classic and tried closing game formula of Snell defense and Hinrich shooting threes
Kirk Hinrich Game
Kirk Hinrich dressed up as MJ for Halloween. Knocks down two huge triple in the last 2 minutes. Crowd is going bonkers.
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.
Someone tell Blatt he left Dellavedova in the game.
Kaman and Blake are checking in after this dead ball. Dame and Rolo will sit.
Bulls have a take-over point guard after all. It's Hinrich. ESPN, put him on the cover next year!!!!
Hinrich back to back 3s...96-91 1:15 left 4th
I mean...this is the first week of the NBA.
Wow, Captain Kirk.
Kawhi's aggressive early, already about to shoot free throws 3 and 4. SA 12-8, Parker with 6 points.
Bulls should cut Hinrich and try to sign Janero Pargo or Willie Green.
Narratively speaking, this game is very Non-LeBron Cavs are Inexperienced-y.
Actually been pretty impressed with Sac's D. Aggressive. Working. Contesting shots. Not giving up many easy looks early in game.
Another aggressive drive from Leonard, that's his second shooting foul drawn. Nearly lost it but those big ol mitts maintained possession.
Captain Kirk to the rescue...
Jordan Farmar expects to hear some booing from Lakers fans tonight.
Tony Snell earning some serious trust. Messing with James right now.
Bulls looking a lot like they did last season, with Rose missing. Scrapping on defense, overcoming a series of misses.
Kevin Love is not a good post up player
Nice court vision from Austin Daye, there, found Tony for the open layup.
Bulls are like the Seahawks of basketball: they dare the refs to call every handcheck/foul because they know they won't.
Kings out to a 16-9 lead, 5:39 left in the first. Gay has eight points, Portland shooting 30%
Makeup call. Love got fouled. So did Dunleavy.
Bulls interior passing - both tonight and vs New York - has been terrific. Almost Spurs-esque
Beautiful lead pass by Daye to Parker in transition
Rudy Gay with a quick 8 in the first quarter on 4/4 shooting.
Derrick Rose left the game late in the third quarter and never returned. He is not on the bench.
Bledsoe had Plumlee off that pick and roll but held it too long
Can we just get to the playoffs? Cats is out here ballin'.
Kings have Gay on Matthews, McLemore on Batum Sac up12-9 Gay with 6 early points
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.
And we are learning that Gasol is not a closer in the world of Thibs. Carlos Gasol?
My brains mush so help me out Wolves Nation: What other guards signed in recent weeks to set market besides Bledsoe, Kemba, Burks, Klay?
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.
Someone tell D. Waiters he actually has teammates.
Ideal defense moves on a string. Cavs moving on a bungee cord. Only when stretched do they react.
Steve Kerr on injuries to Lakers, Thunder: "You knock on wood because you know it could be you any time."
Really like the minutes from Tony Snell tonight.
Kings have Gay on Matthews, McLemore on Batum
Spurs run "Post-3" for Kawhi early, unfortunately, he got double teamed and blocked on the spin.
Bulls not flinching without Rose. Used to winning games without him.
At first, I thought all this Snell playing time was leverage for final moments of Butler contract talks. But Snell is doing his job.
Rose "questionable" return with left ankle sprain from second quarter awkward landing
Early on the Kings already look more energetic ... helps that they're making a few shots ... up 10-7 early.
Get the bubble wrap out!
Bulls say Rose has a left ankle sprain and is questionable to return to the game.
Now Rose is questionable to return. Left ankle sprain.
Bulls move ahead 90-89 w/4:01 remaining as Snell forcing ball out of LeBron's hands. LeBron to bench asking why he wasn't on scouting report
Bulls 21-11 in the 4th..bench has scored 17 of them
First Nate Wolters appearance of season as he enters with Bayless.
The D-League 76ers lead the Bucks 62-58 at 5:56 of 3rd q. Upset in the making?
Dunleavy checked LeBron for most of game, 4thQ has been all Snell.
Steve Kerr unsure of lineup after Livingston back at full strength, but said he could start Iguodala if Harrison plays better w/ Livingston.
Interesting LeBron stat: Had two or fewer assists four times in 77 games last season. Has only two assists with 4:01 left tonight.
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?
Beautiful passing by the Bulls 90-89 Bulls 401 left 4th
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.
Imagine how good Wroten would be at getting to the rim if he were capable of dribbing with both hands.
The ankle injury Rose sustained was in 2nd quarter. Came back in 3rd. Only had 2 points in 9 minutes during that frame.
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
BScott on a Kobe-CP3 backcourt: "Sometimes you want to say, ‘Dammit, David Stern.’ A familiar sentiment
Kawhi’s cornrows are already in midseason form.
The speed and quickness Wroten is really impressive. Gets to basket so easily at times
Kidd pulls Parker and then Sanders just 4 minutes into second half. Strange. Both are playing well.
So far, answer is neither. Hinrich went in for Brooks. Ankle must be bothering Rose.
Bucks down 4 and Kidd calls a timeout. Wroten getting to basket with ease and now has 14 pts.
OH GOOD THE LAKERS ARE ON LATER TONIGHT
LeBron has seemed strangely disengaged in these first couple if games...
Austin Daye too frail to guard Markieff Morris one on one
It's not like we've never seen Popovich throw out a weird lineup before...
My mistake on Gibson. He's back.
That was a crazy great FB shot by Kyrie, wow.
Giannis in at 4 spot now and Henson at 5 with Dudley at 3. Now Mayo for Dudley.
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.
Presti on the injury situation: http://t.co/nrieE7e2G6
Exactly what I was talking the other day RE: Duncan and the positional charade. Austin Daye starts, and they list him at...center.
Austin Daye is starting at center. Pop is a magician. Or a troll. Maybe both.
Taj Gibson back in the game, Rose MIA.
Spurs starters: Parker, Green, Kawhi, Duncan, Daye.
Don't see Rose on the bench.
But Knight answers at the other end with a layup as Bucks lead 58-57
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.
If you're not watching Cavs-Bulls, you might want to flip over. This game feels like it's June.
Gibson back on the floor
Thompson three-point play gives Sixers 57-56 lead
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
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.
Spoke with Sam Presti tonight: "We're not sitting around waiting for the storm to pass. We're marching forward."
Taj left ankle sprain..questionable to return
Gibson is about to check back into the game.
Tough call for Thibs. Has to put Rose back in, but Brooks playing very well. Does he trust Brooks' defense enough to play both?
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
Gibson questionable with left ankle, and Rose looks beat up.
How many PnRs have the Cavs run with Irving-Bron or Irving-Love?
Wolves still have to overpay as well. They're not winning yet and in less desirable market. Flip, Milt hope to change that
Gasol with 16 shots, 3 assists. Thought he was supposed to be a passer?
What a ballgame 86-84 Cavs 6 min left..hope you're enjoying the broadcast.....
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."
This is one heck of potential Eastern Conference Finals preview. These two teams are neck and neck.
Tony Wroten attacks the basket and gets to the line, I'll give him that.
Cavs 86-84..6min left 4th
If you're a PG looking to re-emerge, head to Chicago. Nate Robinson, D.J. Augustin and now Aaron Brooks all seem to get new life w/ Bulls
Brooks - great signing by Bulls
I think, if I were a top-level NBA player, I'd give up a million to play with Joakim Noah.
That's Bulls' first lead since final minute of 1st quarter.
Bulls tie it up at 82
So do the Bulls and Cavs play at least 10 times this year?
Aaron Brooks & Tony Snell have brought CHI all the way back. Like everybody expected
Biggest moments of Snell's young career right here. He's got crunch time minutes and is guarding LeBron.
Now, that's crazy Johnson blocked Sanders shot. Johnson is 6-6, Sanders is 6-11
Doc on Clippers/Lakers rivalry: "All I know is our focus is on tonight and not history. We haven’t made any history."
Gasol with 6 blocks for 1st timesince 2009
Bulls within 80-77 w/8:52 in 4th. Probably best ever sequence from Tony Snell--yes, him--with 8 pts in 12 mins and bothersome D on LeBron
Out in Houston drinking a Saint Arnold Lawnmower with dinner... Add one more to the list of things I never thought I would say.
Nice alley-oop dunk by Parker
I'll be curious to see Pau Gasol's rim protection numbers after this game. Seems like he's been turning guys back all night.
Noel very under control tonight and playing well.
Deron Williams, Derrick Rose, Kyrie, CP3, Russ, Wall are only PGs in NBA who will make more than Ricky's $13.75 avg salary next year.
Bulls down 80-77 852 left 4th
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.
