Gerald Green has literally shot the ball every time he's touched it tonight.
Barnes drives down the lane, is fouled, and converts the layup. He needed that three-point play. Bad.
One make just boosted Matt Barnes to 10.7% shooting accuracy.
Erik Spoelstra says it's not necessarily set that Norris Cole will start and Mario Chalmers will come off the bench as a combo guard.
Utah shot 7-27 from 3-point range tonight....and still scored 105 points
Lakers take the lead on Kobe’s second free throw, 38-37.
Matt Barnes misses again. Now making 7.4% of his shots in the preseason.
HEY GUYZ, WES JOHNSON JUST MADE A JUMP SHOT.
Wes Johnson… Yes, Wes Johnson hits a three to tie the game at 34.
Plenty of empty seats. But this looks to be about what most teams get in the preseason when the home-town club isn’t in the World Series.
Dwyane Wade had 26 points and 6 assists tonight in 29 minutes. He was 11-17 from field. He looked very good leading MIA to the win over HOU.
With 9:33 in fourth: Portland 76, Nuggets 64
Marreese Speights off the bench instead.
Looks like Jordan Hill got hit in the tooth? At least on the TWC broadcast
Mo Speights is in for Ognjen Kuzmic, who has two fouls. Steve Kerr said he'll try to use Festus Ezeli late in the second quarter.
Matt Barnes now 2/26 shooting and 1/16 on three-pointers in the preseason.
Bumgarner back out for the 7th. Nobody up in the bullpen yet, but some moving around.
Wow, Matt Barnes is 1-16 from beyond the three-point line this preseason?!
Jordan Hill just took an Earl Barron elbow to the face
That sequence won't be in a NBA commercial. Wes Johnson lost ball by himself. Thomas couldn't pick it up. Then it bounced off Hill's butt.
Wes Johnson decided to pass the ball to Jordan Hill as he was walking toward the bench and holding his mouth. Lolz.
Decent crowd in Oracle for the preseason. Great crowd considering Warriors-Clips is up against the Giants. GSW fans never fail to impress.
Ognjen Kuzmic has two quick fouls. Andrew Bogut out sick. Festus Ezeli time?
Jordan Hill is bleeding. I can't tell if it's from his nose or his mouth.
Derrick Favors had 12 points, 15 rebounds and 2 blocked shots...
Ed Davis/Jeremy Lin chemistry is strong
Russell Westbrook had 14 points, 11 assists and five rebounds....6-16 from the field
Trey Burke had 23 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds....zero turnovers
Hometown kid Jared Cunningham has six of Clippers' first seven points at Oracle Arena.
Kobe still scoreless with about 5:20 left in the half. Only player on the floor for the Lakers w/o a point.
Enes Kanter scored a game-high 27 points and added seven rebounds in 29 minutes. Easily his best preseason performance
Gee's Night: 7 points, 3 rebounds, 4 steals
should read girls' - my 2 younger one - a co-ed team though 8 boys - 2 girls
Floyd Mayweather is sitting courtside across from the Lakers bench. What was the line on this game?
Gee with another steal..
I had identical twins on my girl's team this summer - 2 boys - could only tell them apart by shoe color (practice)/jersey number
Chris Kaman suffered a head laceration in the 3rd Q and his return is questionable.
Cheers in Oakland for the Giants' 7-0 lead shown on the scoreboard inside Oracle Arena.
Some massive over-thinking about Lincecum going on here. He's the 12th pitcher. That's it. This is not a charity, it's a World Series.
The Warriors' jumbotron shows the Giants score, and the Warriors' fans have their first real reason to cheer tonight.
Turns out that wasn't the end of LA's night ... he's back for a couple more mins of run in the 4th Q.
We love this picture, but rest assured this team is all business this season, focused and ready http://t.co/zsE9AYdboL
Darrell Arthur now has 10 points in four minutes
Is there a baseball game going on tonight?
Matt Barnes inbounded the ball off the bottom of the backboard & right to Steph Curry at the three-point line. Of course, he made the shot.
So, looking ahead to Game 2...
Advanced stat (barring a comeback): Ned Yost 0-1 after winning eight straight postseason games.
Heat shot 8/27 on threes tonight.
Lin giving the 2nd unit some life - Lakers staying close instead of completely collapsing in 2nd
Wade looked pretty healthy tonight. He put up 26p on 11/17, 6a, hit a 3-pointer.
Kobe is back in the game. Kobe Bryant and Jeremy Lin. Rush Hour.
Marvel debuting the Age of Ultron trailer next Tuesday, smack in the middle of the Spurs season opener. 50/50 I call in sick...
Media was given a lineup that had Jamal Crawford starting for Clippers but J.J. Redick is actually in his normal spot.
Barron gets his turn with Markieff up front. Thomas' pushes to drive a foul and becomes the first Sun not named Green to score in the 2nd.
Alonzo Gee with a couple of steals in the last few possessions, including one from Lillard
Quick change: J.J. Redick replaces Jamal Crawford in the starting lineup.
Kobe Bryant getting ready to check back in. Roscoe Smith heads to the bench.
Aldridge takes a seat late in 3rd Q & that could be the end of his night. If so, he finishes w/ 18pts, 8 rbs in 28 mins. Made 7-15 shots.
Davis comparing Randle to LO was more of the ability to play multiple positions. That's it
#55 is in. Tim Collins for KC.
After a blistering few games, Wesley Matthews is struggling vs. Denver. He's 3-10 from field, 2-4 from deep, and just heaved an airball.
Not sure if Julius Randle or Lamar Odom there.
Julius Randle brought the ball up the floor & finished w/ a bank shot. Ed Davis told me at beginning of camp that Randle is next Lamar Odom
Arthur quickly knocks down 2/3 shots upon arrival, for four points
By much bigger, I mean 9-0, 10-0, something like that. If not, there is no chance I'd put Lincecum in. Maybe not even then.
Miami takes it 90-85 as their starters valiantly hold off Houston's 3rd string. Rockets shot just 3-18 from long range in 2nd half.
What a night for Enes Kanter (27 points, 7 rebs) and Trey Burke (23 pts, 5 assists, 0 TOs, +33).
Dwyane Wade finishes 11-for-17 for 26 points. Mostly midrange, w/ 3 FTs. Expect him to take final preseason game off.
These mood swings during the college football season in Utah aren't really healthy, are they? NBA, you can see things coming.
Rockets fouls Wade with 27.2 seconds left down 3. McHale has much to say to Daniels after. Would think you d-up and try to set up last shot.
Mayweather is not fair-weathered.
If this game was being played in L.A., fans would be rushing for the exits. Very quiet in here.
Floyd Mayweather just walked into Honda Center with a crew of roughly 15 people.
Gary Harris has yet to play tonight as well
Rough night for the rookies. Rodney Hood went 0-7 and Dante Exum was 0-4 off the bench.
After watching this 4th quarter I am absolutely convinced DWade and Chris Bosh are better than Ish Smith and Tarik Black (among others.)
Chalmers misses both free throws and the Heat hold on to a 5 point lead with 34 seconds left. This one isn't over just yet.
Jeremy Lin-Ed Davis pick-and-rolls have been a thing of beauty this preseason.
Darrell Arthur checks into the game for the first time with under 5 minutes left in the third
Nate Thurmond is at midcourt to present Andre Iguodala with his trophy for being selected to the first-team All-Defense team in 2013-14.
Jazz starters played very well in a nice 105-91 win at OKC to improve to 5-2 in preseason. Exhibition finale Friday at home vs. Suns.
The Heat need THESE fans during regular reason, legitimately into it even for a game that doesn't count.
Michael Jordan, The Life just went to a 6th printing in Australia/New Zealand. They love 'em some Mike down under.
PHX 24, LAL 17 after 1Q. Dragic: 9 pts, 2 ast; Bledsoe: 0 pts, 4 reb, 3 ast; Marcus M.: 7 pts, 2 reb; Plumlee: 6 pts, 3 reb. Kobe: 0-3 FG.
Off a Randolph rebound with 7 seconds to go, Dragic darted downcourt, split the Lakers D and got fouled with 1.4 seconds to go.
Stotts goes with same duo of first subs as he did in the first half, inserting McCollum and Kaman for Rolo and Dame.
Lakers always have a hard time with Dragic
That foul ball almost got Giants PR man Jim Moorehead in the press box. He was ready.
Dwyane Wade. Good gosh almighty.
Heat dodged a bullet there. 86-83 with 48.9 seconds left. Can the Heat avoid playing in another overtime game?
I like this new wrinkle where they overdubbed the tennis grunt mic into the baseball game. NBA should consider for free throws.
If you thought Goran Dragic was going to fall back down to earth this season, you're wrong. He's so freaking good.
Thank heavens, preseason is finally over for the Thunder. They wrapped it with a 105-91 loss to the Jazz, going 2-5. Perry Jones had 20.
Goran Dragic has the Suns' last 8 points off of 2 drives, a fastbreak stop-and-pop and a fadeaway jumper that put him on his butt. PHX 21-17
Jordan Hill is playing really aggressive. Like his footwork in the post thus far
Goran Dragic makes another jump shot and has six points, but Sasha Vujacic is still the greatest Slovenian of all-time.
Can that style of basketball ever return? We see it internationally, but why in the U.S. do we romanticize team concept but don't TEACH it?
Goran Dragic getting hot. Three straight buckets. Lakers have no answer for him right now.
Portland, meanwhile, out to an 8-2 start in the third. Up 19 now
The Blazers are 10-12 from the FT line vs. the Nuggets, 30-34 over the last 2 games and 90-104 (87%) through 4-1/2 exhibition games.
Thunder finish the preseason with four straight double-digit losses by a combined 85 points. Regular season begins next Wednesday.
The Lakers' spacing is pretty awful. Usually one player -- at most -- is standing outside 3-point arc. It's really congested inside.
Credit to FSD guys. Explaining the rule that screwed the Wings and not the actual call. Fair and objective coverage.
I cared more about KC's pitchers more than normal in '14. Shields, Duffy, Guthrie, Holland on my AL-only fantasy team. Duffy is legit.
Shavlik Randolph is the first sub at center tonight.
And Gallo is already out. He's done for the night
Kevin McHale letting Howard & Harden sit this out, as 5 subs finish. Spoelstra still playing starters. Trying to get rhythm.
Heat 84, Rockets 81 with 2:49 left. Please, God, anything but overtime.
Nate Robinson has played pretty well tonight
Duffy at 50 pitches. DEFINITELY unavailable tomorrow, no sure thing to be available for Game 3 on Friday.
Bledsoe is scoreless but active. He is 0 for 3 but already has 4 rebounds and 3 assists, includiing a fastbreak alleyoop for Keef. LA 11-10
Yes I know it's greedy but now I really want to see a comprehensive documentary on Ewing's 90's Knicks
Brandon Rush out after an MRI exam revealed a sacral stress reaction.
Also, run, don't walk, to see 'Birdman.' Michael Keaton will be in the mix for an Oscar.
It's a final: Wolves 107, Pacers 89. Bennett scores 17, Rubio 16, Mo 13, Bud 11 and KMartin 10
With Giants up big switched over to When The Garden Was Eden. Well done. Great memories. Except for Jerry West, who is still angry.
Midway through 1, Lakers lead 11-10 and Jordan Hill has more post moves than Dwight Howard.
GSW vs. LAC starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Lee, Kuzmic; LAC -- Cunningham, Crawford, Barnes, Hawes, Jordan. Out: Bogut (ill).
Ronnie Price has 5 of the Lakers’ 11 points thus far. Kobe seems to be playing the distributor role early. Hill with 4pts and Wes with 2.
After Hill gets a post score on Plumlee, Hornacek says, "Miles, you're a center. Quit slapping down here." (then puts arms up high)
So in other words, things are fluid regarding the Lakers' PG spot
Byron Scott said Ronnie Price starting is because he has played well & Lin is just returning from injury
Alec Burks with 13 free-throw attempts tonight
Ranking those who I never recall seeing live up to their nicknames. 1T - Big Game James Shields. 1T - Kobe Stopper Ruben Patterson.
Just to get this out of the way, Dorsey, Powell, Garcia, Johnson and Canaan are here in Miami but have not played.
Not sure if Markieff or Marcus Morris, but one of them just scored.
Here comes Brady Heslip...
Safe to say this Clippers starting lineup--Cunningham, Hawes, Crawford, Barnes and Jordan--is one they don't want to see in regular season.
Andrew Bogut has an illness and is not with the team, as Ognjen Kuzmic will start.
Here comes J Evans. Enes won't get 30
Enes Kanter may get 30....has 27
I think Daniels had his second 3 lined up before the Rockets even secured the rebound.
Troy Daniels is nuts. That guy is just an amazing shooter.
Tens of Lakers fans pour into the Honda Center to watch the 2014-15 Lakers. http://t.co/y8rlDUbcuF
Miles Plumlee - 2, Lakers - 0.
Madiso Bumgarner rolling now. Settled in and comfortable. Pitching another World Series gem.
Daniels checks in at two. If Terry gets his mins as backup point, still think Daniels might be work his way into rotation at some point.
Jones has 18. He's really looked good tonight
Perry Jones with a great move, scores on Rudy Gobert and is fouled
Lakers already showing that defensive intensity from last game, but immediately turn it over on the other end.
So I think the answer at this point is TBD - re: Nash, Lin, Price, Lakers pg rotation in general
Yesterday Righetti said a reason Bumgarner has stayed so strong this deep into October is that he started throwing more curves this summer.
There 15-minute limits for Gallo, NateRob and JJ. JaVale is less than that.
I asked Byron recently, does he feel like a fixed rotation is important? Lin staying on bench w/ Nash/Price starting - he said nope, doesn't
67 mph again. That is new Bumgarner.
And then Burke strips Telfair and goes coast for a hoop....Damn, Bassy
Another Lakers sellout http://t.co/awL7G6cE04
Trey Burke, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors have all scored in double digits when starting together in preseason.
Clyde Frazier, the original Most Interesting Man in the World... Then, Jerry Lucas.
Khem Birch just might be your Heat 15th man, at least until Josh McRoberts is a full go in the power rotation.
Think Babs is telling his assistants.. "Let's keep Quincey off the ice these last five?" http://t.co/1PeIa7i66x
About the only thing the Rockets bench can do offensively right now is isolate Ish Smith on Napier. Probably not a viable long-term plan.
Trey Burke just buried a three in Telfair's face. I guess the OKC run is finished
How many editors now would trust 2 Metro reporters, one who said confidential source told them coverup for a break-in led to the President?
Rockets went 1-6 in the third quarter from beyond the arc after knocking down 8 in the first half.
Read a book about famous editors once. A Post reporter described Ben Bradlee by saying BB made you want to run through a brick wall for him.
Rookie night for Napier, who is 0-for-5 and just got torched by Ish Smith.
Clyde Frazier, the original Most Interesting Man in the World...
Indy's George Hill out rest of night w/ knee contusion sustained midway thru 3rd qtr
Bosh: 20p on 7/11, 2/3 threes, 4r, 3a in 28min. so far.
Shields ripples: Duffy's at 33 pitches, now is probably unavailable for Game 2, and he's a big weapon for KC vs. SFG lefties.
Jazz now with all five starters on the floor to finish. So no experimenting tonight. This has been a regular season rotation game
Jordan Farmar said he has been dealing with back soreness for a few weeks. Had an injection yesterday and hopes to play Wednesday or Friday.
Shabazz Napier also in to start Q4. His night so far: 0p on 0/5, 0a, 0 TO in 12 min.
I think Arizona will be the only school remotely capable of sweeping the Pac-12 Mountain road swing this season
Raul used to work out during the offseason in Lancaster County. He also knows a lot about Jimi Hendrix.
Heat notables who haven't played yet tonight: Udonis Haslem, James Ennis. Danny Granger has gotten just 11min, but he's in to start Q4.
Bench in the game, lead down to 87-76. Do we have a repeat of Sunday?
Wolves have got Mo, Shabazz, Chase, Hummel and Gorgui out there leading 88-69 w/ 8:30 left in game
Heat have the lead 70-67 entering the final quarter. Chalmers scored 9 points, Bosh 6 in the third quarter.
According to Twitter most of my followers reside in Cali, Texas ... and Australia. Respect to the Hoop Freaks.
Alex Len will not play tonight but he does plan to return to action tomorrow night against the Clippers.
End Q3: Heat 70, Rockets 67. Mario Chalmers having a nice game off the bench: 13p on 3/5, 3a, 3s.
Heat 70, Rickets 67 at end of three. Wade with 19, Bosh with 17. Chalmers with an impressive 13
Chalmers banks in three, and Heat lead after trailing by 13. Place impressively loud for preseason.
Clippers Coach Doc Rivers, on the hardest part of the transition from broadcasting to coaching: "Working every day."
Bennett has 17 pts in 16 mins tonight, 7/9 FGs, 6 rebs
Safe to say that Mario Chalmers has his confidence back
How many outside of journalism know the names of major American newspaper editors anymore? Every American knew Ben Bradlee ran the Post.
Heat fight back and have tied it at 67-67
My dream blame-game storyline would be a revelation that Ned asked Foxworthy to drop in after BP and "get everyone loose"
If Nash a non-factor this year - I would expect Lin starts long-term. Currently w/Nash? Young out - Lin primary off. player on 2nd team
My new favorite follower is @pkrause84. Every time he tweets me, I initially think it's Casey McCall http://t.co/3ixpxxwzIL
Walt's numbers in Game 7... Ridiculous.
You're gonna like Anthony Bennett, Wolves Nation
Game basically Wade (19) and Bosh (17) against Howard (19) and Harden (19), in a league when Big Twos not exactly in vogue.
Longer-term question - does Nash play this year - and thus Price starts every 3rd, 4th ... 2nd? game w/ rotation stable with Lin on 2nd team
Ya, LaMarcus Aldridge looks good. to. go. 12 points on 5/7 shooting in 13 minutes
How many people in your life have you met that called JFK "Jack," who wheeled their newborns down the street together in 1958 Georgetown?
I'm betting Westbrook is finished for the night. Has played 27 min, Brooks wanted to play him 25
There's absolutely nothing good about the loss of Ben Bradlee. However, I look forward to odes written by some of the world's finest writers
Wolves 82, Pacers 63 after three quarters. Three bench players -- Bud, Bennett, Mo -- in double figures. Didn't happen much last year
Do the Jazz starters play the fourth? Utah up 85-69 heading into the final period
67 mph pitch from Bumgarner?
Woj would ruined everything by tweeting out that Wills Reed was gonna play
Miami isn't especially big, doesn't have elite athleticism & is at least one shooter short. Needs to be elite defensively.
Not sure the Chris Andersen stepback jumper is sustainable, but there's a certain charm to it.
Birdman with the difficult step-back jumper while Howard guards him tightly. AA Arena explodes with cheer.
JaVale McGee just swatted a Matthews layup with 2 hands on glass, then strolled to student section and pointed as play went the other way.
Byron Scott pregame: "I think if we was in the East we’d feel real comfortable about making the playoffs. But we’re not. We’re in the West."
Warriors coach Steve Kerr on having Alvin Gentry as an assistant: "You’ll probably see us run a lot of the same stuff as the Clippers."
The term "journalism hero" can feel like an oxymoron in today's business. But Ben Bradlee, journalism hero, always sounded right and true.
Fresh off his week in Ottawa, Zoran Dragic will join his team at the Honda Center at some point during the Suns-Lakers game tonight.
In Game 1 of the 2010 World Series, the Giants trailed Texas 2-0 after two innings but tied it in the 3rd then put a 6-spot up in the 5th.
Birdman with another jumper . . . and conversion. Ca-caw?
Heat now 4 of 15 on 3-pointers. Rockets 9 of 19.
McGee giving it a good effort defensively, looks rusty offensively, which is to be expected
Smart move by Doc Rivers to rest Chris Paul, Blake Griffin in Oracle Arena and give Oakland native Jared Cunningham the start.
To sum up: fair deal, especially under rising cap. Just wouldn't thrill me to be the team paying it. Vooch is a hard player to peg.
Mario Chalmers was instructing Shawne Williams before that first FT, missed it, immediately went back to instructing.
Dante Exum is not playing well tonight. Rookie life
Lin coming off the bench tonight - makes some sense, in that the 2nd unit has has all but zero fire power
