The Raptors are 11-2. Who the hell cares about whether the Leafs salute the fans or not?
Parker sits with 19 in 27 minutes. That's 47 in his last 50.
Dallas cuts lead to 7...
Still plenty of time for Cavs to get it together. But there's also plenty of time for the Wiz and Raps to keep building on these good starts
Pretty sizable contingent of Raps fans in Detroit last year but this is by far the biggest group I've seen in a visiting NBA arena
It was his shoulder not knee. Gordon heads to the locker room.
Pierce's 3 from right corner ties it 54-54. More 2nd chance pts for Wizards (15-2 edge) vs. Bucks.
No Porter, awful start, now no Nene, but Pierce’s 3 ties the game at 54.
Robert Covington does have as many three point makes (5) as Michael Carter-Williams, though. MCW did it on 24 attempts, Covington with 9.
Mavs-Rockets a combined 11-48 FG in the 3rd qtr.
NBA record for 3s attempted in a game is Dallas 49 in 1996.
Quick timeout as the Wolves ahve cut the lead down to 86-82 with 10:51 to play
I feel another skirmish coming. It's that kind of game.
Temple was mugged, but in fairness he didn't go to the basket with any aggression whatsoever
Budinger with 11 on 3-6, 2-2 3s. It's been a struggle for him this year, but showing up tonight offensively

Eric Gordon holding his left shoulder, could be serious. Heading to locker room.

Deron about to check in.

Ryan Ruocco got all five of Mike Fratello’s drawings correct and I’ve never heard either man happier to be alive
Robert Covington with his 4th three pointer of the night. That makes him, what, 3rd on the team in makes on the season?
Pelicans backup center Jeff Withey playing well so far. He's made 2-of-3 shots, just got an open lane for a dunk.
WITHEY SLAM! Seriously, I forget that he can do that.

Kings outscore T-Wolves 36-25 in the 3Q. Take 84-77 lead to the fourth.
Anthony Davis and Utah's Derrick Favors battling each other tonight. Good matchup.
One team's running. One team's jogging.
Anthony Davis (12 pts, 5-7 FGs) is getting good at that pull-up, mid-range jumper off one foot. A nice addition to his arsenal
Duke can really spread the floor w/ all these shooters -- Sulaimon, Winslow, Cook, Jones. That's the type of style it will take to beat UK.
Every announcer in the NBA has a quota on the number of times they must say that AD was a guard in high school. Jazz guys are close.
Raptors fans at The Q now chanting for Bruno.
Real problems for Blatt start if his players buy into the external noise. Fact is, tho, that Cavs have been undeniable disppointment to date
I feel like Sean Sweeney will one day be a head coach who despises the media. And for some reason this makes me like him more.
Anthony Davis is flat out ridiculous
And he gets the and 1...
Kings up 84-77 after three.
Drew Gooden III is starting the 2nd half for Nene.
Hey! He's back!
Giannis is on Career High Watch tonight for points, steals, assists.
There’s a reason Robert Covington’s number is 3 3
The legend of Robert Covington began on a cold night at Madison Square Garden...
Davis played pretty much all of the first quarter. He earned a long rest. I figure he'll be back soon.
Middle Tennessee scores on an easy drive that took less than two minutes. FAU 34, MTSU 28 with 4:15 left.
Russ Smith has played 4 minutes. 2 fouls.. No other stats.
Just got a "Maintenance is having trouble..." announcement from the captain. Pardon me while I focus my camera on Trash Can Hitter Dude.
In Europe, Blatt was Pop-like. He could tell the media to go jump in a lake & they had no counter. Here? He'll get zero benefit of the doubt
Teletovic killing the Spurs in the third quarter with 7 of his 16. Nets aer back within eight at 54-46.
In the span of a week, Dan Hurley led Rhody to an upset of No. 21 Nebraska and Bobby Hurley kept Buffalo close with No. 1 UK early.
Chase Budinger is so bad defensively I'm surprised he's not a Laker.
Mirza Teletovic with 16 points, 6 rebounds, 0 hair strands out of place.
Withey looks to block everything... Occasionally, that's a good thing. He has 2 blocks this half.
Meanwhile, the Nets have closed to within eight thanks to six straight points from Mirza, who has a game-high 16.
Williams has gotten the all-clear from Tim Walsh to return to the game. Just a matter of when Hollins calls his number again.
Boogie's "ohmygod" face is the greatest.
Blatt's Maccabi team went on to win the biggest trophy a basketball team can win next to the Larry O'Brien ... but with one big difference
Anything you can do Tim Duncan can do better.
76ers playing as hard as they can, but don't shoot the ball well enough from anywhere on the floor to get close. Down 9, 2:25 left.
Deron is talking to trainer Tim Walsh and walking back and forth along the bench. Now takes a seat at the end of it, talks to Walsh again.
Russ Smith was defending Dante Exum in a matchup of rookies, one with a thick NCAA resume, the other a bit of mystery from Australia
Deron is up trying to walk it off.
I feel like the Sixers need J.R. to pass them the ball like he does with the kids in halftime games. So many open shots. So many misfires
DeJuan Blair hasn’t played in 15 days. I assume that will change in the 2nd half.
LaVine bails Williams out again with a foul on a jumper. Flip: "What is he doing?"
This one fan here at MSG definitely thinks Nerlens sucks. Related: He’s also not the most creative fellow.
Honestly, the Jazz are really helping with some of these turnovers.
Pelicans are on a 9-0 run to bring their lead to 7.
When Maccabi Tel Aviv started 4-3 in league play last season, despite all he had won as a coach, there were calls for David Blatt's head ...
Crowd at EnergySolutions Arena chanted briefly, ''We want Jimmer.''
Wade hasn't played in 10 days. Grass ain't always greener.

Kings up 78-69
No on a 7-0 run, now leading 34-27 with 7:11 remaining in the first half
Tony Parker and Deron Williams banged knees, both wound up on the floor. Parker stays in to shoot free throws, while Williams goes to bench.
Deron comes up gimpy after banging his right knee, has to check out with 10:25 left in 3rd Q.
Knee-on-knee with Parker
Deron Williams just went down and grabbed his knee. Got up and is limping. Looks like knee-to-knee contact.
Mavericks making a comeback- were down 18, now down 10. 1:31 to play in the 3rd
Deron is limping.
One upside of an athlete you cover blocking you: They're generally the least interesting people on Twitter. Cleans up your timeline.
The 3-point shooting starting to look like one of those time out contests. Mavs 4 of 24, 1 of 11 in 3rd. Rockets 2 of 13 in third quarter.
That Knick possession belongs on Shaqtin' a Fool.
may need to wake up my kids and yell at em...this game is incredibly frustrating
Now this game looks like the Washington Generals against, well, the Washington Generals.
Maybe even a top 5 pick.
Problem solved. http://t.co/pdmAUJx6fP
Dirk, Monta and Parsons are 10-of-36 from the field.
Uh-oh ... After only 4 free throws in first half in SA, 2 more just 26 seconds into 3rd quarter
Mavs seem to have little interest in attacking the rim consistently, happy to launch from deep.
If Justise Winslow can hit that 3 semi-consistently, he can be a top 10 pick.
FAU scores on a 4-yard touchdown pass from Jaquez Johnson to Alex Deleon. FAU 34, Middle Tennessee 21.
Russ Smith into the game for Pelicans instead of Jimmer is almost an insult
I can appreciate it though. Athletes get so much BS throw at them on Twitter. Nothing they can do other than the block button.
Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday are a combined 2-of-8 from the field. Not good.
Well, at least it's not New Year's Eve this time around. Then again, anyone watching this baby could use a stiff drink.
Ha ha ... Bill Land and Sean Elliott talking about Kevin.
Big day for the state of Rhode Island as Rhody beats Nebraska behind 26 & 10 from EC Matthews and Providence beat Florida State
For all those who mocked Vegas making the Knicks an 11.5 favorite over the Sixers ... NY up 12 with 5 to play.
Yes, Pac-12 officials are bad but they're consistently bad. At this point I'm hoping all Pac-12 teams have adjusted to their ineptitude.
Season-high 23 points for Kevin Love
Cavs down 14 with 5:30 to go. LeBron on the bench.
Knicks letting Sixers get close. If anyone but Carmelo shoots here Phil is going to leave his cart in aisle 6 and have to take over.
Definitely a weird feeling when an athlete you personally like decides they hate you in a social media kind of way. Occupational hazard.
Another three by Covington. Give him 8 points in an 8 minute run.
Russ Smith is in the game.
While game heating up -- Harris just nailed Beverley with forearm -- Rockets cooling off. Have missed past 7 3s. Still lead by 15.
Called a personal foul on Harris, but it was a clear case where a technical should have been called at a minimum.
Forgive the typo. Quiet.
Jaquez Johnson founds Alex Deleon on a nifty play for a 50-yard pass. The Owls are in the red zone.
I think Delfino blocked me after I referred to him as a chalk outline after a particularly bad game vs. Carmelo. I REGRET NOTHING CARLOS.
Another Pelicans turnover, wakes up the Utah crowd. I was just thinking how dead quite it seemed there.
Refs reviewing to see if the last foul on McLemore should be a flagrant. It stays a common foul.
Kidding of course. I could never go entire night without blocking someone. But right now, Cavs deserve all the rage after blowing 26-8 lead.
I feel like this game would normally be a classic Knicks' meltdown, but I don't trust Philly's shooting enough to come back and win it.
Does anyone think the Nets are coming back?
Guy who shot between quarters was just signed by Sixers and hit a 3-pointer against Knicks.
Pelicans rookie PG Russ Smith makes a very-early entry tonight, a minute into 2nd quarter. This is only his 2nd regular season appearance
Career-high 32 points for Lou Williams
Please pick up your complimentary violin as you enter tonight's Cavs postgame press conference. Thank you.
Vogel on injuries: "I really don't feel bad for us. …Here's the guys in uniform, we got to go win a game with them."
Halftime: UCLA 24 USC 14.
Devin Harris shoved Beverley to the ground as they fought for a rebound. Refs talking this one over.
Mavs missing so many good looks. Are they flustered by how chippy the game has been, or just looking like a tm on 2nd night of b2b?
Milwaukee had led by 15, up 52-47 at half. Wizards made up for turnovers by hitting offensive glass (8 in 2Q, 11 in half).
It's about time that Dwane Casey starts getting some attention
Everything's coming up Raptors. DeRozan even getting his confidence back by picking on poor Kyrie. Irving/Harris abomination defensively.
UCLA 24, USC 14 with 14 seconds left in the 2nd quarter. Hundley to Massington for a 13-yard touchdown.
Raptors just sneering at the Cavs tonight
The Sixers are officially awful...and the Knicks are horrible.
Rodney Stuckey had an X-Ray on his left wrist and results were negative but he and Hibbert are listed as "day to day"
Give Parsons credit. Booed all night, he stood and acknowledged the crowd, who appreciated it. Good lesson for Omer Asik when he's here.
Plenty went wrong in 1st half, but Wizards down just 52-47. They got aggressive attacking rim at the end of 2Q. Pierce = 11p, Wall = 10p.
Cavs jumped out to a 12-0 start. Raps outscored them 95-65 since.
Parsons stands while on the bench and waves to the crowd. And he gets more cheers.
52-47 Bucks lead the Wizards at halftime. It is now a winnable game for the Wizards
Tim Hardaway Jr. would be a good Sixer.
For the record, Cavs fans, I'm not reading Twitter notifications until they win again. You guys take this out on me wayyy too often.
Season high 20pts for Ben McLemore in Minnesota. Much better Kings effort in 2nd half. Defense fueling effort
End of 1: Pels 25, Jazz 23. Burke progressing to the mean? He's hit all three of his attempts for a game-high 9 pts. Gordon w/ 8 for NOP.
Not a dry eye in the house. Including mine
Noel hook over his left shoulder. Gosh it would be nice if he could make that a consistent shot.
Brandon Knight's joined the elite company of Bogut and Delfino as Bucks who have followed me on Twitter and then blocked me. Cool!
Ben McLemore sets new season-high in points with 20. Long way to go in this one.
Message was "Thank you for 3 great seasons Chandler." Fans boo, until Parsons waves to the crowd. Then some cheers.
DeMar DeRozan started 1-of-10. Now 5 of his last 5.
Now Chandler is getting a standing ovation and lots of cheers during his tribute video.
Spurs hit more shots in the first half within 5 feet of the basket (16) than the Nets hit all half (15).
Chandler Parsons video tribute plays. Some boos, but majority of crowd applauded, some even standing to do so.
Vasquez's awesome silver sneakers are inversely proportional to that terrible flop he just had on D
Wall has gone strong to the rim with the left hand twice. I think that was his first left-handed dunk of the season.
I think A) The Cavs will get there and B) Spoelstra should get a lot more credit for how he handled that start four years ago
Tightly played first quarter - Pelicans leading 25-23. But Jazz scored 12 points from 3-pointers.
Boos as the Rockets play their Chandler Parsons tribute video.
For those of you that couldn't find the game on TV, the Pelicans are up 25-23 at the end of the first quarter.
Wow! They are doing a Chandler Parsons video tribute right now, and it's being booed.
Lou Williams. Career high 32 points.
Burks dishing to a charging Gobert 20 feet from the basket might seem ridiculous at first, but that's how much space Rudy needs to Eurostep.
Dirk was 3-of-7 on FGs in the 1st half. He's 1-of-7 on FGs in the 3rd quarter.
Career-high 32 points for Lou Williams. He's done it in 22 minutes, on 16 shots.
Cousins with another double-double. 6th straight, 10th in 13 games.
Jazz down 25-23 to New Orleans after the first quarter
Tarik Black scored! That alone is enough to force Rick Carlisle into a timeout. Rockets up 68-55, 6:42 3Q.
YouTube is dangerously devoid of Jim Spanarkel NBA player highlights.
McLemore is on now, 20 points, 11 this quarter. He's made 4 threes. Kings up 70-62. Malone is slightly less scared.
Wolves got by with that zone while McLemore was Thrift Store shopping (broke). Now the ceiling can't hold him and Wolves are in trouble.
This game has all of a sudden turned into a punting exhibition.
Tyson Chandler's putting together a nice alley-oop dunk reel with Dwight not in there.
God Bless Rudy Gobert, who just received a pass 18 feet from the basket and somehow managed to salvage two free throws out of the deal
As he watches a Raptors team he partly built, Bryan Colangelo is smirking.
McLemore says screw the zone!
Ben McLemore heating up for Sacramento. 17 points, 5 rebounds.
Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons are a combined 0-of-10 from 3-point range. Both have gotten good looks.
Leave it to the Bucks to work a deer-hunting, Bango/blaze orange skit into a timeout this weekend.
What's happening with the Cavaliers is incredible, can't-look-away theater.
Anthony Davis' jump shot blocked by Rudy Gobert.
AD gets his shot block by Gobert. Doesn't happen often.
Deron Williams has 12 points, three assists, & has easily been Brooklyn's best player. He, Teletovic, Lopez & Jack have 32 of Brooklyn's 36.
Hamilton has to be helped off the field. Looks like a leg injury.
The Heat survive Mt. Vucevic -- again -- as Chris Bosh (32 points, 10 rebounds) is now back on track. Charlotte in Miami tomorrow.
I know it's plus-minus but when you see Brook Lopez is minus-16 and Bojan Bogdanovic is minus-18, it all makes sense.
There are fireworks going off outside my apartment in Brooklyn. I am guessing they are not watching this game.
With UM down 20-7 & in danger of falling to 6-5, Heat moves to 7-6 with 99-92 win at Orlando. Bosh 32 points, 10 boards.
fools talk trash, because they jealous...
Tyson Chandler and James Harden really aren’t friends tonight.
Best games of the season for both Bosh and Chalmers to power the Heat victory vs Magic tonight.
Cavs are just trying to survive until Delly gets back.
FS Anthony Hamilton is down on the ground after a making a tackle.
Much better second half for DeRozan, by the way. He's hit 4 of his 6 shots. Making better decisions.
Tim Duncan, defying his age: 6 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 blocks, 3 steals. And it’s only halftime.
What. The F. Was that.
51-36 Spurs at halftime. Spurs shooting 51 percent, Nets shooting 34 percent. Those two stats pretty much sum everything up.
Or should that be D-Mo vs. D-No? Motiejunas just got a tough call, out with three fouls.
Halftime: Spurs 51, Nets 37. Parker with 14 points, Kawhi has 13 points.
Yeah, yeah, getting my Atlanta racism mixed up. Ferry's was repeating racist scouting report, the owner was writing the controversial e-mail
The Nets are down 17 at the half and the first commercial that follows features Pitbull. Haven’t we suffered enough?
I think the Spurs finally broke ESPN. http://t.co/5mZ5lekMnM
McLemore couldn't buy a 3 in the 1st half, but he got three straight dunks to get himself going and just knocked 1 down from the corner
Ariza, Parsons playing to a draw. Ariza 2 of 7, 1 of 5 on 3s; Parsons 2 of 8, 0 for 5 on 3s. We now return you to Beverley vs. Nelson.
Well-executed play leads to open Pierce 3 and Wizards cut lead to 9. Seems like it should be a lot worse.
Turnovers killing CLE again. They have 15 leading to 20 pts for TOR. Have given up 86 pts (and counting) off turnovers in last 4 gms
I'm no lip reader, but I do believe Pierce just told his Wizards' teammates that they needed to, "get the f*ck back"
Halftime: Spurs 51, Brooklyn 36. Parker with 14, Leonard with 13, Duncan with 6/7/5/3/4. Brooklyn shooting 34.1 percent.
