Parsons has made some huge non-scoring plays down the stretch
Kevin Garnett referred to the Sixers' losing streak as both a bear and a monkey on their back within a five-second span post game.
8:42 left in 4th, Spurs trail Pacers minus Paul George, George Hill, Roy Hibbert, and David West 87-83. Manu's got 22 points.
JR giveth and JR taketh away
Kevin McHale quietly very high on the Sloppy Dressing Coaches rankings.
Meanwhile the Pacers have 11 points in the first three minutes of the fourth - who is this team?
Tyson season highs in points (17) and rebounds (24) vs. his former team.
Isaiah Canaan with a new career high tonight too. He has 24. D-Mo has his with 21.
LeBron will chow down on Thanksgiving: “It (diet) will be broke. I’ll be right back on it on Friday. Gotta treat myself every now and then"
Kings had everything going their way, but the Rockets had their two stars -- Motiejunas and Canaan. Career high for both.
Yeah, no reason to cover Isaiah Canaan at this point. He'd only made 5 threes before that one.
Not sure where Kyle Wiltjer would've fit into the platoon system, but he's found a home here at Gonzaga. 14 pts as Zags lead UGA, 40-28
Manu's going nuts tonight. Up to 20 points and he gets the sneaky steal off a Pacers defensive board.
Season high 28 pts for Dirk.
Unbelievable pass from Manu. Went high to corral high pass in corner, whipped it in one motion to Baynes underneath for the short jumper.
What a play by Manu. Parker almost threw it out of bounds, Manu caught it in the air with 1 hand, and threw it to Baynes for bucket.
Paul White has a chance to be special. Very Otto Porter-esque
Sending another letter proposing to Tyson right now.
Jazz Nation.Tough 1. Have a Happy Thanksgiving. Your passion, love and dedication for the Jazz is one of the things I am most thankful for
Kevin Pangos is just doing whatever he wants out there.
Two straight TOs to start the 4th for Los Spurs, with Pacers converting both into 3s to push back ahead by 5.
Spurs start 4th with their 13th turnover of the night - Rudez sinks the three on the other end. Indy by 2.
Tyson's shoulder fouled Dalembert's arm while Dalembert was using Tyson's shoulder for leverage...good call
I went for that pump fake and I’m at press row, a full section from the court.
Knight had 2 points in first three quarters.
Knight now with 13 points in third quarter, last two on dunk after steal, and Bucks lead 98-84. Fans heading to exits at Target Center.
So pipe on up "Hawks front office is infallible" crew. You had a lot to say in preseason. What have you got to say now?
Quincy Acy doesnt have cable
I'd be cool with not seeing Sessions play at all on Friday.
Harden with a drive, a steal and a breakaway. Rockets up 95-85, 2:07 left. He's 9 of 30, but has 24-8-7.
Harden with the steal and dunk that might seal this one. Rockets up 95-85, 2:07 to play.
Manu's third quarter - 4/6 shooting, 11 points, 2 assists. SA outscored Indy 16-6 in the paint in the 3Q.
The only quibble w/ Raps 13-2 start is their schedule luck has been incredible. But they have made the most of every break. Amazing.
James Harden is back… after a third quarter slump, he is looking pretty good.
Harden may have just won the game with his defense.
Mental lapse by Thompson on the goaltend.
Desperation 3 goes for Indy at the end of 3, but Spurs up 77-76 entering the fourth. Or as I like to call it, crunch time.
Parsons played for the foul instead of just taking the possession.
Ben McLemore and DeMarcus Cousins building some nice offensive chemistry.
3Q: Spurs 77, Pacers 76. SA outscores IND 27-21 in the quarter. Manu with 11 of his 18 points in the third.
Bench points tonight: Thunder 44, Jazz 3. OKC now 4-4 this season when outscoring other team's bench, 0-8 when outscored.
Papanikolaou misses the first and makes the second free throw, ending the Rockets charity stripe skid at 9.
The lady in the Indiana Jones getup on the baseline did not approve that call
Final: Thunder 97, Jazz 82. Utah drops its fourth in a row.
So as the Hawks gaze longingly up at the top of the standings where the Raptors reside, you can thank Danny Ferry for helping their bench.
Now 11 points for Manu in the third quarter. Appears his bald spot is starting to regenerate as well.
Important win for the Thunder: 97-82 over Utah. OKC now 4-12 on the season. Knicks on Friday, with cavalry coming.
Thunder wins, 97-82, to snap a six-game losing streak.
Thunder snap a 6-game losing streak, 97-82 over Utah. Jackson 22 and 8 assists, Ibaka 20 and 8 boards, Lamb 21 on 7-8 shooting (3-3 from 3).
Manu again - 18 points.
Copeland's screening has been pretty solid, esp in DAL, but he comes up high with an elbow while trying to pick Ginobili. Offensive foul.
Spurs have their first lead since midway through the second quarter, 75-73.
You never make trades that help your division and conference rivals. Toronto was already going to be a top Eastern team this year.
Motiejunas with a fadeaway, right-handed hook, has a career-high 21.
D-Mo just got his career high - 21 points tonight.
16 points for Manu, tonight - 9 of them coming in the third quarter.
Old man Dirk has already played a season-high 35 minutes. How much gas will the big German have left for OT?
I wonder how the puff piece writers are feeling about that trade now.
Messina is getting the hang of it, up off the bench bellowing for a 3-second call. (He didn't get it.)
This one website editor got super mad at me for questioning infallible wisdom of Danny Ferry, accused me of having unrealistic expectations
It's getting to the point where you can just pencil Ty in for 9 assists every night and then go from there
One of those nights, James Harden?
Manu finally takes the lid off the 3-point basket, makes the open corner bomb. He's got 14 points now.
Emotional moment as Ish Smith possibly enters the game for the last time in a Thunder uniform.
Ish Smith entering with 1:37 to play. Extremely likely it's his last game for the Thunder. Hardship runs out tomorrow.
Knight getting to line and helping Bucks in fourth. Six consecutive free throws and Bucks up 93-84. Timeout with 4:17 left.
There was no mutton on hand, so Manu instead fed BAYNES the basketball for a reverse layup to tie the game at 70s.
Rockets might have to get Black back in to match up with Cousins. Motiejunas with four fouls with 4:50 left.
I remember this one time when I questioned the wisdom of giving away a first round pick and a valuable bench player for nothing...
Harden finally hits one via having no Kings within two counties of him.
Goes without saying that this is a terrible loss for the Jazz. Losing streak at five. Clippers, Nuggets and Raptors on deck
Kevin Pangos for the season: 24 assists, 0 turnovers.
Argentina to Australia working there as Manu feeds the Baynes for the layup.
Harden misses the wide open three, but gets a second chance and nails the corner three! Rockets up 9, 4:54 left.
Headed to OT, tied 95-95. J.R. Smith ain't scared.
Overtime. There goes deadline.
This is why you don’t look at +/- as an indicator in a single game. Ramon Sessions +5 Ray McCallum -11
J.R. Smith, colder than a Texas Shiner Bock out of an ice box, takes about the worst shot he could - step inside the 3 - and hits it for OT.
Correction season high 13 assists for Lowry
J R Smith with a step back top side J ties the game at 95. Knicks Mavs http://t.co/t8MJFgbFgE
J.R. Smith was 1-for-10 entering the 4th quarter. He's hit 4 for 6 in the fourth, including that game-tying jumper with 0.9 seconds to play.
Who shot? J.R.
Millsap 8 points 5 rebounds in 36 minutes, minus-7, worst among starters.
Wow! J.R. Smith with the J over Aminu with 0.9 sec left. It's tied at 95-95.
JR throws up the most ridiculous of shots, and hits the 22-foot step back anyway. Wow. Tie game at 95.
With Manu's last miss, the Spurs are now 1/10 from distance in this game. Seems the 4-game three point shooting of 43% didn't last.
Exactly how Fish drew it up... LOL
Huge mistake by Cousins. Picks up his fourth foul and turnover #7.
Morrow hits from deep and puts the Thunder up 20, 95-75. OKC has hit 12 of 24 from 3-point. The Jazz just 2 of 15.
Since Cousins checked back in, he's had two turnovers and missed a layup. Motiejunas scored on him on one end, drew a charge on other.
2:01 left in 3Q, Spurs' offense still hasn't emerged, but defense has shown up, holding Pacers to 13 in the quarter.
Kyle Wiltjer moving much better -- said he really worked on his flexibility in his season sitting out following transfer from Kentucky.
Jazz dispelling one NBA trusim tonight. Every team does NOT make a run.
Gorgeous high low Thomspson to Couisins 83-79 Kings cut lead to 4
Manu gets himself into double-figures with 11 points off the bench.
Sexy oop by Cousins from Thompson.
THAT IS NOT A CHARGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Back-to-back atrocious possessions saves the game!!!!!!!!!! Yay Thanksgiving
Good, Knicks. Give the ball to Dalembert for the attempt at a game-winning shot. Mavericks, meanwhile, are complete frauds.
LeBron as he's leaving the locker room: "We got to go watch Bean!" Guess he's tuning in to Lakers-Grizzlies
Big East is now 38-2 with wins over North Carolina (Butler), Michigan (Villanova) and Minnesota (Johnnies) in the last 24 hours.
Audio here at the AT&T Center: Chants go from "MVP! MVP" when Kawhi's shooting free throws to "Awwwweee" when he missed them both.
That's one of those moments where Shumpert has to recognize the right play isn't necessarily the RIGHT play, if you catch my drift
"Inside to Dalembert...." The end result was exactly what you'd expect for NYK
Fisher elected against calling timeout -- Knicks had one left -- and Dalembert ended up missing a potential go-ahead shot.
Bad foul for Cousins to take. Rockets are in the penalty now.
And promptly misses both...
Kyle Lowry, game-high plus-14, has had two horrible shooting nights against the Hawks. Still outplayed Teague in both games.
Awesome rebound by Leonard. Went over the crowd and snatched it with both of those gigantic hands. Draws FTs at the other end.
Tyson Chandler, ladies and gentlemen.
James Harden now 6-of-24 from the field.
It is 64-60...in the first half. I know some of you are enjoying this as much as I am.
Kawhi was not going to be denied a trip to the free throw line. Spurs and Pacers tied at 66.
Calderon doing everything for the Knicks tonight. Seven 3s. Terrific alleyoop to Stoudemire.
Ben McLemore is shutting down James Harden.
Jeremy Lamb leaves to a standing ovation. His best performance of the season: 21 points on eight shots in 23 minutes.
No touch football at Curry's on Thanksgiving? Steph: "No we don't do that like "Wedding Crashers"-style, everybody on the lawn full tackle."
What a play by Calderon. What a game from him. Nice to see his impact on the game.
Deron Williams on the Philly crowd. "Eight thousand people got pretty loud. They turned up."
The Mavs do miss Jose Calderon.
Raps better step it up or they are going to spoil their point differential ...
Jeremy Lamb exits to a standing ovation: 21 points on 7-8 shooting in 23 minutes.
And Kawhi nails the open jumper off a screen, good find by Manu. KAwhi's got 13 points now.
Last team with the ball wins.
Rockets up 6 with Cousins back in. He'sd matched up with Motiejunas.
Cousins is now back. Without him, this Kings' team is starkly different on both ends of the floor.
Not sure how much longer Flip can leave Gorgui on the bench
Tough night at the office as the Raptors get the best of us 126-115. Al looked great (23 points), and Jeff got his second double-double.
Why was KG fired up in 4th? "I want to shout them girls out on the baseline that was talking sh*t. They put a little kick in my juice."
Casspi basically dribbled out the shot clock. 0.8 left
The 3-4 min starting stretch of fourth when Harden sits has been tough for Rockets lately, but they kept the 4-pt lead as Harden returns.
Dirk with one of those "take that with you' shots.
After starting the game 4/4 shooting, Kawhi Leonard has mised his last three shots. Previous one was wide-open.
Spurs will consider themselves hugely fortunate if they win this one. Opp with more talent than injury-depleted Pacers would be up 10 plus.
Houston still with only 4 turnovers. Kings with 15.
P.J. Hairston has a thumb sprain. Left the arena in a brace.
Either Diaw or Scola could've been called for a foul on that last attempt for a rebound
Credit Rick Carlisle for getting Dirk a wide-open look coming out of a timeout. Elite coach vs. rookie.
Seven 3s and nine REBOUNDS for Ambassador Calderon. A mere 13 and 22 in response from Tyson Chandler. Three-point game inside final minute
This is a season high (35) in minutes for Devin Harris.
Your 13-2 Raptors ladies & gents. 4-1 start on the road for the first time in team history, 6 straight wins for first time since 2009
13-2. We the Fourth trumped We the South
Season-high 126 points for the Raps.
He is still Dirk Nowitzki!
All is good in the end. Clippers go to 4-1 on trip w/104-98 win over Pistons. Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.
Serge Ibaka has been huge in the fourth: Six points on 3-3 shooting (18 on 8-18 overall). Providing much-needed offensive stability.
DeRozan was excellent and Amir came through late, but the bench won the Raptors this game.
Fisher's end-of-game lineup is interesting. Kept Amar'e (7 TOs, 2-of-7 shooting) & JR (5 TOs, 4-of-15 shooting) out there over Shump.
The Hawks will never contend until the front office acquires rim protection.
Dozens of fans streaming out. There were hundreds to start.
Onions for Kyle Lowry. Ballgame http://t.co/RrtWtBKZNK
Custom Nike's for Lakers Nick Young http://t.co/J1kjYG03xT
Rockets have no Dwight, Jones, Beverley. Harden's shot missing since 1st q. They are 5 of 13 from line. Somehow, still up 4.
Four straight made shots for Serge Ibaka after a rough start. Just had a huge and-1. Thunder up 14 on Utah, 5:34 left.
Probably not the best idea to dribble behind his back in traffic.
Fan behind me right now: "Did they kick Pop out?" Usual reaction if you don't follow Twitter.
Whiteboard in the Cavs' locker room postgame with the team's schedule: "Tomorrow - Gobble Gobble"
Amir flush gives the Raptors 124 points, matching their season-high from last week's rout of the Bucks. Still 46.7s left.
Danny Green tried to get fancy with the behind the back dribble, he lost it and Hill nailed a three. Indy 65-62.
Chris Paul scores 17 of 23 points in second half of tribute game for Gallagher family to help Clippers down Pistons.
KG: "I want to shout them girls out on the baseline that was talking that shit.... I'm glad they did it. They put a little kick in my juice"
The Raptors are so bright right now. http://t.co/RVCQHB2xXe
Rodney Stuckey matches Parker with 18 points now in the game as well.
The Rockets have missed their last 8 free throw attempts.
get healthy Darren Collison
The Raptors are so bright right now. http://t.co/RjciAVvqNT
Quietly, Mozzy has saved a lot of offensive possessions tonight
Amar'e has gone 1-on-1 against Tyson in the post at least four or five times and gotten the same result each time he tries.
Told you Jose know these rims. He's 7 of 9 from 3 and has 21 points.
Minnesota could now play an SEC team & an ACC team back-to-back. Will likely get Georgia on Friday & then Wake Forest Tuesday in ACC/Big 10
How many times can you go to the well with the same joke before it gets tired?
Calderon's Revenge is a very real thing
With a hand in his face and no room to maneuver, Calderon drops his 7th 3-pointer and Knicks lead 89-88. Welcome back.
Tyson Chandler 21 rebounds
Stauskas has to hit the open 3-ball.
Heckling girl fans of the N.B.A., K.G. hears you.
Spurs finally putting together some sort of run - up 8-3 on Pacers to start 3Q. SA largest deficit tonight has been 9.
Some Knicks players seemed to have the same expression that Tyson would have with Woodson - throwback!
Two Tony Parker baskets and this game is tied at 58. Parker was able to beat both Sloan and Mahinmi on first drive, then steal and layup
More like 18 points for Tony Parker, who just got another layup, this time in the open court. Spurs tie Pacers at 58, 8:05 left in 3Q.
3-point shooting: Knicks 12-25, Mavs 4-28
Parker with six unanswered, including his steal-layup combo, to tie the game at 58s, 8:05 left in the third.
I stand corrected. Cousins sits. Kings immediately go to Carl Landry.
Clippers win 104-98. Too much CP3 in the 3rd, too much Jamal Crawford in the 4th.
Meantime great ballgame Mavs- Knicks Calderon filling it up and Parsons can't hit a shot
Kevin Pangos is playing as well as any guard in the country so far this season.
Teague fouls falls under the league rule of "you looked lost so foul is on you" clause.
16 points for Tony Parker now. Just scored with a layup.
It's almost as if relying on Quincy Acy 18-footers wasn't sustainable
Kevin Garnett shouted out the heckling girls near the baseline who inspired him to hit that big shot.
Rockets lead 77-73 heading into 4th. Have some time before Kings in bonus, go to hack-a-Joey/Tarik. First few minutes with Cousins in key.
Despite the double-double, DeMarcus Cousins also suffering from discomfort in his right knee. Really grinding through it right now.
Cavs' David Blatt: "I thought last week, Washington really pushed us around." Point of emphasis was to match it Weds. "We did a good job."
So apparently you can't even rip through in the post anymore. Man that elbow rule is straight ridiculous
Jamal Crawford with a steal -- defensive player of the year submission game for him.
Rockets cling to a 77-73 lead over Sacramento heading to the 4th. DeMarcus Cousins' 8th straight double-double: 23pts, 14rebs
Dirk has 18 of his 22 after halftime.
OK, will add a caveat, live that didn’t look like a flagrant at all. Didn’t see a replay because I’m working on story.
Isaiah Canaan really bailed out Houston in the third, scoring 14 of his 21. Rockets clinging to a 77-73 edge heading to the 4th.
So when Gerald Green is on the floor tonight ... so will Alonzo Gee
Kings down 77-73 headed to the fourth quarter. Cousins has 23 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists.
Kings trail 77-73 going the fourth.
Get out the salami and cheese Momma ballgame is over ... Ok add some turkey, yams and pumpkin pie. Happy Thanksgiving Canada from USA
