Serious question: If Kentucky played only four guys at a time (but rotated to keep them fresh) for the entire second half, who would win?
Fifteen of Monmouth's 20 points are from its bench. Of those 15, Brady, Stewart and Nicholas have combined for 13.
Carmelo said not thinking about shutting down now - expects as of now to play tomorrow in Toronto.
Monmouth has a 20-16 lead over Wagner at the under-8. MU's defense continuing to have a day so far. Wagner still at 33.3 percent shooting
UCLA had more turnovers (8) than points (7) in the first half.
Best wishes of a speedy and total recovery to @CarlHerrera_ as he recovers from a gunshot wound after being held up in Venezuela yesterday.
Alex Poythress is going to lead a rousing rendition of "Devil Town" after this one.
UCLA 7, Technicals called against the Clippers Friday 7
Deseo recuperacion pronta y total para el gran @CarlHerrera_ quien fue herido de bala al ser asaltado en un restaurante ayer. QD lo proteja.
UCLA is down five to the days of Christmas
Josh James is about to come back with his right ring and pinkie fingers taped up.
Halftime: Kentucky 41, UCLA 7. I know I've never seen this before.
UCLA's 7 first half points is the lowest in school history.
Justin Robinson just tried to take on Aaman at the rim. It didn't go well
UCLA 7, Rocky movies 6
With Rajon Rondo traded to the Mavs and Reggie Jackson a restricted free agent, Goran Dragic is perhaps the most realistic option for LA.
Monmouth leads Wagner, 11-9, at the under-12. Hawks are pretty locked in defensively, holding the Seahawks to 33.3 percent shooting thus far
Niles Paul, Alfred Morris and Ryan Kerrigan join Ryan Clark and Trent Williams on the field for the coin toss.
So when is that Kentucky-Sixers game going down?
Getting ready for American Sniper http://t.co/1QptTw0MV7
41-7 Kentucky obliterating UCLA in Chicago. John Calipari would put in scrubs, if he had any. Near NCAA record low 1st half. (was 4)
Halftime: Kentucky 41, UCLA 7. The Bruins were 3 for 37 (8.1%) in the first half.
I wouldn't necessarily call you crazy if you said the next time Texas plays Kentucky, the Wildcats will still be undefeated.
Carmelo Anthony said he plans to play tomorrow
Kentucky 41 UCLA 7 at the half. No, this isn't a football game.
Kentucky 41, UCLA 7 at the half. That's not a misprint. INSANE performance by the Cats.
Latest report has Goran Dragic opting out of his contract with the Suns and having an “open” free agency this upcoming summer.
Josh James just took a shot to what looks like his right hand/wrist. He comes off and is in pain
We'll be hoooome for Christmas!
We're calling everything today on Staten Island. Might as well settle in.
Melo on how long he can put up with losing, 'Shit, as long as I have to.'
Hey @freddydodgeGR We are at the confluence of South Platte and St. Vrain. We need you for a clean up.
Facial expressions on UCLA fans' faces is a mixture of depression & amazement. Kentucky leads 39-7. 2:18 left in the first half demolition.
Jay Wright says with a straight face Villanova is always prepared for conference season "because we've got the Big 5."
UCLA is 3-of-30 from the field right now. UK 34, Bruins 7. I just hope Bill Walton isn't watching this one from his Teepee.
Kentucky 33, UCLA 4 with 5:30 left in the first half and "mercy rule" was mentioned more than once on the CBS broadcast.
Celtics, Jameer Nelson have had initial dialogue on future, possibilities before trade deadline, sources tell RealGM. No buyout talks yet.
What do you say at halftime if you're Bryce Alford? This is just demoralizing. Getting a single good look is difficult in itself.
Wagner has shown Monmouth zone the last two possessions. Nice by Josh James of driving into it, then diming up Chris Brady for a layup.
Utah v. Colorado State looks like Western Conference v. Eastern Conference in the NBA
Monmouth and Wagner are tied at 6 at the under-16. One-time MU target and former Raritan star Mike Aaman has 4 of Wagner's 6.
Wanna Bail is in the game for UCLA. Fitting for the Bruins.
Knicks lost, but there's a dude playing Hot in Herre, In Da Club and Cry Me a River on an electric violin in Penn Station. So today is great
Cbs sports "classic"......not really. I mean, not only is the court awful...but UCLA is down 31-4! with 6 min left in the 1st half!
Deon Jones has two fouls at the 16:54 mark and will sit. Both were pretty needless, the first one especially
One coach texts me: "I don't think Harrell should be suspended, but (Steve) Alford should be for scheduling this game."
Oh my god. Kentucky
It's a 4-4 game since that 24-0 Kentucky "run"
I've never seen World Wide Wes smile so much during a game.
Villanova coach Jay Wright says Hilliard has been tested for a concussion and was not allowed back in the game.
Were off at Spiro. Josh James draws Wagner's leading scorer, Marcus Burton, to start.
Rutgers is capable of losing to anyone. This is a fact. Scarlet Knights head to West Long Branch in eight days.
One of the biggest homer announcers goes on anti-charging rant, will later praise Harden as he flops to draw bullshit FTs.
I wish Kentucky was playing New Jersey Institute of Technology instead of UCLA.
State of Texas hasn’t been kind to the Hawks. Atlanta last won in Dallas on December 5, 2009 behind 31 points from Joe Johnson
This is the best I have ever seen Andrew Harrison look. Then again, entire UK team looks ridiculous.
"When Villanova plays someone else here, they're not going to get 18 thousand." - Cuse coach Jim Boeheim on keeping series alive.
Here we come, FL. ✈️☁️☀️
Karl Towns http://t.co/fIermJ32yJ
Memphis wins the Battle of the Bands. They've been dominant in the pre game events
UCLA finally on the board. 24-2 with 12:15 left.
UCLA is winning 2-0....in the time that I've been watching.
I honestly feel bad for Bryce Alford. Looks beyond tired and still 32-plus minutes left.
At this rate, the Knicks will win another game before UCLA scores. Kentucky 24, UCLA 0. WOW
My couch is heroin in couch form.
24-0 now w/12:38 to go in 1st. Kentucky absolutely dominating, making UCLA look like a JV squad.
Holy crap 24-0 Kentucky.
Kentucky 24 UCLA 0 ... And it's not that close.
I hope Steve Alford doesn't have a towel on the bench.
Butler tripled down on Perea when he got the ball in post. Result was travel call. Get defensive call.
What channel is the kentucky/ucla game on in fios philadelphia? Thought it was cbs, but that's a football kickoff show.
I can't wait to see Gyorgy Goloman. Should be too long.
Comparing Jeff Teague/Dennis Schroöder shot charts. Hawks lose some shooting with Teague out http://t.co/Dkfn2P1M7B
Battle of the bands tied going into the final event. The drum lines
Fisher says there is "really no excuse" for the way Knicks couldn't do anything when Anthony rested to start the fourth.
Holtmann goes with Wideman and Martin out of the timeout. Barlow on bench with 4. Chrabascz getting a breather.
I haven't even turned on the Kentucky game and they're already up 16-0 over 8-3 UCLA.
'Backseat freestyle' currently playing at Spiro, so yeah, we can play a ballgame now.
At this pace, final score: Kentucky 192, UCLA 0.
Pass the controller, UCLA.
Byron still unhappy that Young got ejected last night: “I gave him some words and told him if it happens again what would happen to him.”
For Monmouth: Justin Robinson, Josh James, Deon Jones, Brice Kofane, Zac Tillman. James back starting after a two-game absence
Crean shook up his starting lineup a bit in the second half. No James Blackman. Interesting.
And ... And .. And ... Villanova has more wins this season at the Wells Fargo Center this season than the 76ers (0-13).
UCLA may never score.
We're in the middle of the battle of the bands. Memphis currently trailing going into the actual music portion http://t.co/jVFNbNd45N
No. 7 Villanova 82, Syracuse 77. OT. Final. Wildcats are 11-0. They rallied from 15 down and never led until overtime.
Pinkston has saved Nova in final ticks v Michigan and now Syracuse. 80-75 lead.
Pinkston. Block. Game.
Sierra Black sings the anthem. No, I don't know who she is, but somebody does.
Arcidiacono can only dribble himself into trouble so many times before it comes back to bite you.
Wait since when did Robin Lopez date Michelle Wie? Is that a thing?
Suns 99, Knicks 90. Phoenix outscores New York 32-22 in the fourth quarter.
Clarifying: The Thunder has not yet ruled out Kevin Durant for Sunday's game against the Pelicans. Still a chance he plays.
At least they got that charge.
Just built "real" NBA Standings. Equalized value for games v. East and West. 10 of top 16 teams would be Western teams and top 4
Interesting from Ohm: Hollins politely declined to comment on whether Brook would return as starter given Plumlee's recent play.
Hilliard on the bench. Unclear from here where he's hurt.
The Knicks could have 25 losses before Dec. 25th. Holy crap. "On the first day of Christmas, my Zen Master gave to me, Sam Dalembert...."
Hilliard is hurt. Holding his face as he heads off the court.
People who get blocked on Twitter, then email you on a Saturday morning… upset that you’re ignoring them. http://t.co/dGfzcW8IJb
Syracuse up 5 w/ 17 sec to go. Villanova gets a 3. Then a steal & a 2pt. Ties the game. Going to overtime. THAT is why no game is ever over
Villanova leads for the 1st time all game w/ 4:03 left in OT.
On the other hand: The defense was stellar down stretch, even with Barlow out. Getting good looks at basket. Dunham has been fabulous.
The players Phil Jackson inherited and kept are Amare, Bargnani, Iman, Hardaway, J.R. & Pablo. (Before you ask, he re-signed Melo & Cole.)
Up 5 with 17 left, all you have to do is execute. Credit Nova for making it very difficult on the 'Cuse inbounds. Swarming D.
This Villanova and Syracuse game is insane. Villanova trailed by 5 with 17.9 secs left. Hit a three, pressed, got the turnover and bucket.
Knicks fall to franchise-worst mark of 5-24 -- just one game ahead of Philly for NBA's worst record. Now 3-16 in close games.
Villanova with one of the more unlikely comebacks you'll see in quite some time.
Damn! What a finish to regulation. Pinkston bucket w 4.2 left helps Nova tie for 1st time all game. 69-all vs. Syracuse. OT.
Whoever patented "Photo Of Sad Knicks Bench" is a billionaire.
FYI: Nine players on current Knicks roster were acquired by Phil either thru trade, draft pick or free agent signings. This is his roster.
Indiana 38, Butler 38, 52.9 seconds left in half. Dunham with 18 points on 4-for-6 shooting. 9-for-9 from the line.
Well, it didn't pay off. Barlow goes for a steal on perimeter and gets called for a fou. with 2:03 left half. Holtmann not like the call.
The offensive foul on Melo there is the kind Shaq used to get just for being taller than his defender when he made that turn.
An important reminder & please pass along to your MFFL friends. Tonight's game (Rondo's Mavs debut) is on TXA21 (Not FSSW) - See you at 730
NYK struggling to get stops in clutch again. Has been the case all yr. Allowing 117 pts per 100 plays in close situations; 2nd-worst in NBA.
Phoenix is just more athletic across the board and has better shooting. But aside that it's close.
Perea just sent one of Jones' underhand shots into the stands. Literally.
Frustration for Knicks, if Suns hold on, is that game was lost in 3+ minutes Carmelo sat to start 4th. Has to be able to rest at some point.
Dolphins promote WR Matt Hazell from p squad and cut LB Jake Knott
Inactive for the Eagles: Kelly, Vandervelde, Maehl, Couplin and Hart. Foles and Cole were ruled out because of injury earlier in the week.
Still, best to be cautious this time of year. Ankles are easy to re-injure if not fully healed, can drag on.
Bosh probably could play on Christmas, but he would be highly susceptible to another sprain or worse if not fully healthy. It's a gamble.
Thunder listing Durant as out vs. Pelicans Sunday due to ankle injury. Saw him walking at Staples Friday, maybe had slight limp but not much
Marks the 19th time in 29 games -- 65% of the time -- that the Knicks have been within five points in the final 5 mins of a contest.
Syracuse was 5 of 8 from FT line in 1st half. With 3 minutes left in game, Syracuse is 5 of 8 from FT line.
Chris Bosh is out for Sunday's game against the Rondo-less Celtics. Would be surprised at this point if Bosh made it back for Christmas.
As Dalembert makes me look ignorant. Really nice putback there.
Jackson Davis getting some run as well. Big part of the game.
If Bulls fans are looking for a good place to see a game in a different city: Go to Memphis. Great environment. Always enjoy my time here.
"I think he's going to be great for our scorers as well as I'm sure we’re going to get help from him defensively." -- TChandler on RRondo
The guitar work on "Really Love" is perfect.
Is there something I'm missing here? Aldrich plays well all game, then you go with Dalembert for key mins in the 4Q? Why?
Only Joakim Noah among qualified power forwards and centers (on pace for 200 assists this season) has a better A/TO ratio than Horford.
MSG Wins Since 11/20: Texas – 2 Gonzaga – 2 St. John’s – 2 6 NBA teams - 1 6 College teams – 1 Knicks – 1
Without Colt McCoy, who was placed on IR on Tuesday, Kirk Cousins will be active for the first time since Oct. 26 against Dallas.
Tyson on Rondo: "Understanding what's going on out there, great timing, anticipating the ball and just causing havoc out there."
I believe everyone on Syracuse has 11 fouls.
So it's not the players, it's the system...Until the team is approaching 20 games under .500 than it's the player's fault. I got it now.
Trent Williams is active and will play, which is no surprise. Williams sprained his right shoulder on Sunday against the Giants.
Imagine the outcry if a Carmelo confidant threw Phil Jackson and the rest of the front office "under the bus."
Amazing to think Myers is Utah State's 4th starting QB this year because of injuries. Not sure many programs could absorb that kind of hit.
PHX making Melo work extremely hard for his shots today; perhaps more than any other team has so far this year.
"U try 2 take things away from him and try 2 keep him out of the paint. But he just gets 2 the spots he wants 2 get 2.'' -- DHarris on Rondo
Coolio is a member of the Hatchet family now. Haters shouldn't mess with him.
Rough lineup on the floor to start the 4Q. Fisher trying to rest Melo, but with injuries, no1 aside from Hardaway who can get his own shot.
We don't have monitors on press row so someone GIF me that Hilliard dunk off the missed J.
Do they know it's Christmas they have to stop from scoring inside?
My opinion just from watching video of Harrell skirmish: Should be suspended for next game. Intent was to deliver blow. Could have escalated
How are the Knicks winning this game?
Wishing Illinois State all the best for a huge victory today over New Hampshire. Go Redbirds!
Calderon now 5-of-6 from 3-point range. The kind of game NYK fans have been waiting for him to have.
Only one stadium (capable of housing two teams) would be built in L.A. so the number of options doesn't really matter as long as one works.
Remember this, Carmelo has a track record in his current job. Phil is a novice at building a team. Maybe he'll be great at it. Thus far...
Dunham just got IU's Holt to bite on a pump fake and drew the foul. Hit all 3 free throws.
The two hottest stadium sites now mentioned for a possible LA NFL team are Inglewood (Hollywood Park site) and Carson (Victoria Park site).
Missed opportunity there by Nova, with Syracuse unable to generate any real offense. Could be right there had they executed better.
Phil's been on job since March. If anyone has an issue with Knicks talent, Phil should be the guy answering the Complaint Department phone.
