Vincent Goodwill

Wiggins rushing things, having trouble on the dribble. Very Harrison Barnes-esque thus far

Sean Kelley

Saints will start this time at own 7. #NOvsCAR

Steve Aschburner

Varejao's outlet pass was more the Jay Cutler variety, missing LeBron and flying out of bounds.

Jon Krawczynski

Wiggins a little jittery in his home debut. 0-3 in 9 minutes

Earl K. Sneed

Monta misses a bunny layup and now the @Dallas Mavericks are coming back down to earth...a bit. #DALvsUTA

Joseph Goodman

Does it really matter where you're from? It's a construct created to fool ourselves into fighting wars and buying jerseys. RT @mgolden7

Sean Kelley

Panthers fail to score points off Saints turnover again. Huge break. Still scoreless with 2:36 left in 1st

Adi Joseph

All of the bad passes are in this game.

Amin Elhassan

My cape is billowing in the wind RT @MrCraw4D: Kyrie just hit homie w/ the Shammgod on prime time TV.

Dwain Price

Has Lob City left LA and traveled to Dallas? Tyson has 3 lob dunks in the first period.

Jody Genessy

Dallas shooting: Nowitzki, Chandler, Ellis, Nelson: 10-for-10 Parsons: 0-for-3

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons was 2-of-10 vs. the Spurs. He's now 0-of-3 and the only Mav that has missed thus far. #DALvsUTA

Tim MacMahon

Chandler Parsons: 0-of-3. Rest of Mavs: 10-of-10.

Eric Pincus

I'll be at Clippers/Thunder tonight - but after my girl's basketball practice

Ethan J. Skolnick

Carmelo Anthony could have been a Chicago Bull

Melissa Rohlin

Doc on whether team is emotionally charged tonight, considering OKC knocked them out of the playoffs: "They should be."

Earl K. Sneed

April 8, 2014 the @Dallas Mavericks shot a team-record 16-of-17 against the Jazz in the 1st. They're now 10-of-11 from the field.

Sean Kelley

Another chance to get off the field. It will be 3rd and 7 at NO37 after CAR timeout. #NOvsCAR

Jody Genessy

Tyson Chandler is dunking off of alley-oops as often as I've been doing Vines lately.

Chris Haynes

Shane Larkin penetrated and passed to an open man on the wing. It was the right play but the open person was a referee. Turnover.

Dwain Price

Dirk shaking folks out of their sneakers. And Tyson gets another alley-oop dunk from Jameer.

Payal Doshi

Well, Reggie says he likes #Toronto in the East. He likes that Kyle came back. @NBAonTNT

Dave McMenamin

Cavs played 4 out, 1 in (Varejao) on offense that last possession

Aaron Falk

Rodney Hood's been looking forward to playing against fellow Mississippian Monta Ellis. The Jazz rookie is on the floor with him now.

Jody Genessy

Chandler Parsons had the Mavs' first miss of the game — a 3-point attempt five-plus minutes in.

Sean Kelley

Keenan just blew up Cotchery to force incompletion. Big time play

Tim MacMahon

Mavs' first miss was a Chandler Parsons 3 that rimmed out at the 6:49 mark. Hit first 8 shots from the floor.

Melissa Rohlin

Doc on Ballmer's pep-talk before game: "He was Ballmer-relaxed."

Chris Miller

John Wall scored 11 of his team high 21 points in the third. Wizards lead 82-66 heading into the fourth. #WizardsTalk

Earl K. Sneed

Nelson hits a three and the @Dallas Mavericks take an 18-8 lead until Trey Burke answers. #DALvsUTA

Ethan J. Skolnick

Quite a day. Heat fans irritated at me. Had a Cavs fan tweet that he hoped I got jumped 2nite. And now the Beliebers are after me.

Jody Genessy

The Mavs have hit their first eight shots to take a 20-11 lead over the Jazz. I haven't seen shooting like this since Media Training Camp.

Joseph Goodman

Got locate Cleveland on a "political" map and hit me back. To consider yourself from a place is inherently political. RT @mgolden politics?

Joe Kotoch

You can tell Cavs fans packed in the Q are just waiting for LeBron to take over.

Rick Bonnell

Thanks, CBS, for providing that picture (yuck).

Josh Robbins

End of the third quarter: #Wizards 82, #Magic 66. Wall: 21 points, 11 assists. Vucevic: 14 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists.

Sean Kelley

Saints D can get off quickly. 3rd and 9 for CAR

Tony Jones

Five minutes into this game and the Jazz have yet to get a single defensive stop....wow

Sam Amico

Justin Beiber on Jumbotron, booed loudly. Cleveland just keeps getting things right.

Matt Dery

At least #FSU kids still have their "class and dignity".

Fred Kerber

Bernie Kosar just shown on scoreboard at #Knicks v #Cavs. Good chance he starts for #Jets soon

Sean Kelley

Only thing stopping @Saints right now is Saints. If turnovers go away, CAR has no shot stopping Brees and company. #NOvsCAR

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cavs offense looked cleaner in preseason than tonight. Some overpassing. Tough to evaluate anyone's defense against the Knicks.

Josh Newman

Arguably biggest high school get at MU in Rice Era. RT @DaveEnglander: @Josh Newman ESPN has him as a 3 star recruit... 43rd best SF

Steve Luhm

I assume all those preseason 35-win predictions for the Jazz are being recalculated as we speak.

David Mayo

Caron Butler has training camp legs. Or maybe just 34-year-old ones. Needs to score before the month ends.

Dwain Price

#Mavs owner Mark Cuban said he would consider signing 40-year old guard Ray Allen if he decides he wants to continue playing basketball.

Bob Finnan

LeBron James has 4 turnovers in 13 minutes

Vincent Goodwill

What did Zach LaVine say when he was drafted?

Marc Berman

LeBron may get a triple double with turnovers part of the package. Got 4 TOs as #Knicks hanging in at 33-28 with 7:39 left in half.

Jon Krawczynski

Actually LaVine getting Martin, not Mo. Flip wants Williams with the rook on most occasions

Sean Kelley

Another turnover. Brees sacked and fumble recovered by CAR. #Saints

Chris Vernon

One of the top 4 teams in the country, hahaha. Right. Sagarins computer knew the truth.

Vincent Goodwill

Caron Butler is struggling to score. 0-3, last shot an airball

Mark Heisler

This is just because it's opening night, right? #LeBron who's barely looking at hoop didn't just stop being a meat-eater, did he?

Sean Highkin

LeBron's been kind of bad tonight.

Ray Richardson

#Twolves rookie Zach LaVine checks in for his first NBA action.

Jon Krawczynski

Ben Golliver

Arguably the most poignant moment of Cleveland Cavaliers' elaborate player introductions @LakeOswegoInfo http://t.co/fu354ImBRB

Aaron Falk

Think the Mavs are happy to have Tyson Chandler back? Two early lobs for dunks. Mavs up 11-4 early. Quin Snyder calls timeout.

Jody Genessy

Quin Snyder took a quick timeout after Dallas jumped ahead of the Jazz 11-4.

Sean Kelley

DE Kony Ealy hurt on that last run by Ingram. Another 1st down on 5 yd rush and 5 yd CAR penalty

David Mayo

KCP 4 of 6 for #Pistons after shooting 3 of 19 last night. Wolves lead 30-29, 8:06 2Q.

Jeff Wade

No way the Mavs miss a shot at home this year #TooMuchPosse

Earl K. Sneed

Now, Parsons finds Tyson for another alley-oop. @Dallas Mavericks have come out on fire, leading 11-4 with 9:33 left in the 1st. #DALvsUTA

Dwain Price

Tyson already has 2 alley-oop dunks -- from Jameer and Parsons.

Alan Hahn

That looks like the plan. RT @realjlive: Man. Play Melo and the youngins. They have less to unlearn.

Vincent Ellis

NP, MJ's "Thriller." Always failed miserably at trying to replicate moves from video. #youhearthedoorslam

Anyone else wanna throw Tyson Chandler a lob? Jameer Nelson and Chandler Parsons already fed the big fella in the first few minutes.

Tony Jones

Jazz' first five defensive possessions? not good

Payal Doshi

LeBron looks to be shaking off the nerves. He’s currently just 1/6 from the field for 2 points. #LeBronComesHome

Jorge Castillo

All 5 #Wizards starters in double figures. Wall leads w/19p, 10a. Gortat has 14p, 9r. Wizards lead 76-61 w/3:24 left in 3Q.

Sean Kelley

That was a laser. @drewbrees hits Colston for 22 yard gain on 3rd and long. #Saints

Adam Zagoria

So 4 guys in this game played for Kevin Boyle at St. Pat's and Danny Hurley at St. Ben's: Irving, Dalembert, JR & Thompson.

Tony Jones

Jazz' first three defensive possessions? not good

Not sure what shape of offense the Knicks are running, but it's not much of a triangle

Erik Gundersen

Love is eating in this offense. Easy looks on offense, baseline screen for a corner 3 for him early, outlet passes. Too easy.

Chris Herring

Gonna be painful watching NYK take this many midrange jumpshots all yr, especially when you consider how good they were from 3 not long ago

First place on the line. Let's do this. #Saints

Vincent Ellis

Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate RT @kwelity fastest at missing open jumpers in the league

Al Iannazzone

Knicks are 6-for-18, missing open looks all over the place, and there have been many possessions with no triangle being run.

Chris Haynes

I know we're only a few games in but I'm having a difficult problem deciding on who's worst between the Lakers and Knicks.

Mike Prada

Mid-range jumper, brick, rebound, outlet, fast break. There, I’ve summarized the next three quarters.

Alan Hahn

"I don't need shooters, I need MAKERS."

Eric Pincus

Rockets taking options on Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas @BBallInsiders basketballinsiders.com/houston-rocket…

Jon Krawczynski

Kevin Love: 8 pts, 7 rebs, 3 assts, 2-2 3s in 9 minutes. Whew.

Joe Kotoch

Kevin Love showing why he is the best outlet passer in the NBA. Crisp, accurate passes that push fast breaks or draw fouls.

Marc Berman

LeBron a bit out of control so far, so pepped to be back. 3 turnovers for James but Cavs lead 21-12.

Tom Haberstroh

Reminder: Kevin Love had more TD outlet passes than the next two-highest combined guys last season. es.pn/1nqrauv

Jonah Ballow

Larkin has saved the #Knicks on some defensive possessions in transition.

Howard Beck

"It must be cool to know that you're the best basketball player in the world." -- my 8-yr-old, accurately.

Frank Madden

Who's hurt for the Knicks right now? This can't be their actual roster right?

Frank Isola

Looks like the Knicks have given up on the triangle until the day Marc Gasol signs.

Vincent Goodwill

I thought Corey Brewer might be end to end the fastest guy in the league...KCP might be up there with him

Brett Pollakoff

LeBron is so good that Dion Waiters now makes a high percentage of his shots.

Paul Garcia

8 points, 5 boards, and 2 assists for Kevin Love in his first 8 minutes as a Cavalier.

Sean Highkin

Kevin Love would probably be the best quarterback in the NFL, too.

Michael Grange

Guys like @Tristan Thompson and Andy V will make huge gains playing with LeBron etc. ... So many easy buckets to get.

Dan Woike

Steve Ball.I.AM and Fergie http://t.co/Bng2UKuLDe

Dwain Price

"Tony Romo wasn’t drafted.'' -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle, referring to J.J. Barea, who also went undrafted

Joe Kotoch

Kevin Love looks like a natural fit on this Cavs roster. So hard to defend someone w/ his skill set playing alongside LeBron.

Sean Highkin

This offense isn't fair.

Ray Richardson

Both #Twovles and #Pistons shooting under 33 percent from the field early in home opener at Target Center.

Derek Bodner

I feel like every Knicks fast break ends up in a Shane Larkin pull-up jumper.

Jon Krawczynski

Wiggins with a couple nice interior passes. Both teams struggling shooting. 8-24 combined

Sean Kelley

The @Saints have won the toss and will receive

Stefan Bondy

Man, the Cavs are gonna be fun.

Eric Pincus

Options taken for Barnes/Ezeli - not Neodvic @BBallInsiders Golden State Warriors basketballinsiders.com/golden-state-w…

Steve Aschburner

So Kevin Love upgrades from Corey Brewer to LeBron James as wideout for his long outlets. Melo mighta wrapped up Brewer. Not this guy.

Josh Robbins

My guess on why Moe isn't playing is that Vaughn is looking for offense from Ben Gordon and Willie Green.

Paul Garcia

Kevin Love grabs the defensive board, then outlets to LeBron who catches the ball at the opposite three point line.

Fred Kerber

At 6:30 of first Q, all five #Cavs starters have scored. Anthony has 6 for #Knicks, Shumpert 2. Knix down 6

Royce Young

Ben Standig

Kevin Love throws the ball downfield with such authority that Al Davis just returned from the grave to sign him for the Raiders.
