Tough news on Anthony Morrow (out 4-6 weeks, ACL). OKC could have used his shooting to help spread the floor for Westbrook in KD's absence.
I really wish blogs had a better way of generating revenue than things like DraftKings/FanDuel. Understand it's necessary, but very annoying
Anyone see where the Jusuf Nurkic bandwagon is parked?
If you want a ticket, just RT this or reply to this tweet saying something like “Yeah I want a free ticket.” I’ll pick 2 winners at random
That Rutgers-Nebraska point spread sure shot up this week. Opened at 15, now looking like 20 or 20.5 for the noon kickoff
(con’t) Nas will be performing… The two single tickets are both on Chase Bridge. I was gonna do a trivia contest – but let’s make it simple…
The Knicks are having a “2014-15 Tip-Off Scrimmage & Concert” at MSG tomorrow afternoon. I have 2 tickets to give away to the sold out event

unplanned bring-your-daughter-to-work day yesterday. thank you to my colleagues and the Celtics for your patience and kindness.
Last four preseason games for Bosh, averaged 21.5 points and 7 boards on 54 percent shooting from the floor
Miami resting hopes on Chris Bosh to keep them afloat post LeBron. Early signs - good. Averaged 18.9 pts and 7.3 rebs during preseason
D-Wade, a career 29% shooter from 3PT range, shot 43% from beyond arc during preseason. As the athleticism fades he's going to need 3PT more
Nothing new on Rubio talks. Will repeat: 4/$48M won't get it done + can see that 48 go up when Taylor becomes more involved. No on 5-yr max.
Former Ohio State G Aaron Craft and ex-North Carolina F James Michael McAdoo among those waived by Warriors late Friday. Both undrafted.

Here's your 14 NFL scouts at Oregon-Cal game. http://t.co/JODA63xElI
What helps Oregon: Notre Dame losing again… Utah pasting USC. Root for those things. They help.
Five major conference champions… plus Notre Dame, plus SEC’s runner-up. This is going to be a beauty pageant, people.
Clippers going with that Lakers-style lighting this year?
Style points count. Selection committee watching. SEC contender plays Cal… do they score 41? Nope. FSU? Nope. Oregon must do more.
The Warriors waived guard Aaron Craft, swingman Jason Kapono, guard Sean Kilpatrick, forward James Michael McAdoo and forward Mitchell Watt
The horrid crimes in and around Gary bringing attention to dangers of abandoned homes. Fans of "The Wire" learned about it years ago.
CP3 on Nash: " I remember the night before I played him the first time, I couldn't sleep because I wanted to play against him so bad."
CP3 on Nash: "When I came into the NBA, he was the guy I was coming after."
Many thanks to the entire Bulls organization and game ops for making the trip to St. Louis...another outstanding job!

Aaron Craft is saying his goodbyes in the Warriors' locker room and making plans to go to Santa Cruz.

Doc: "we're not gonna win if we don't rebound better."

Doc on Cunningham: "He played great, he didn't play perfect tonight but he's going to be a decent player."

Doc Rivers on the Western Conference, looking ahead to the season: "The West will be historically hard this season. And I'm not kidding."
The Clippers had a planned team meeting after tonight's loss. Doc said he didn't want it to take long, but several guys spoke up.
JR Smith says triangle offense has been tough, so it's no surprise last five preseason games he's shooting just 27% from field 13% from 3PT
Suns guard Eric Bledsoe: "This was by far the hardest game of the preseason to me. We got beat up a lot ..."
Brian Shaw played 14 guys tonight. None over 25 minutes ... all at least 11
Offensively Pau Gasol hasn't looked great in chi-town, but his rim protection is promising considering Noah will be relied on to chase fours
The preseason is over! Regular season starts in 4 days.
Bulls fans must be feeling good. Derrick Rose finishes preseason avg 28.5 points on 59 percent shooting (58% 3PT) over last two games
Final: Blazers 99-89 over Clippers#Clippers
Oregon’s 52 points are the most ever scored in the long and illustrious history of Levi’s Stadium.
I also assume McLemore might have to go through the concussion protocol after clashing heads with former King Wayne Ellington.

Press releases at 10:55 on a Friday night FTW: http://t.co/CZHmhHzKev
Clippers finish preseason 2-6 after losing to Portland Trail Blazers, 99-89. Real season starts Thursday versus Thunder.
So I would say Lakers opening night 15 is all but set with Price and Ellington - while some teams cut guaranteed money - doubt Lakers do
Final: The Clippers lose their final preseason game to the Portland Trail Blazers, 99-89.
If Ellington makes the team for opening night can still be cut later - just not while hurt
Ronnie Price suffered what looked like knee contusion - he also can't be cut while hurt or be owed full salary - but was already making team
Anybody who thinks this Wolves team is going back to a 20-win season or worse...I just don't see it
Ellington has about 1/3 salary locking in if he's on the roster Nov 15th - cut before then, just owed for # of regular season days on team
Even Schwartz's has Nash fever http://t.co/7jarHejsvM
Mariota is going to be a little sore from that late hit tomorrow morning
Wayne Ellington was on the roster bubble but with concussion - Lakers can't cut him while hurt - else they would owe him full salary
Wheels down Chicago!
Klay Thompson spin move and reverse layup. Oh, my.
Ben McLemore has stitches above his right eye after bumping heads with Wayne Ellington.

The Warriors are bringing back their starting lineup with 6:18 to play in their preseason.
The Jazz have one week to work out extensions for fourth-year players Enes Kanter and Alec Burks. They'll become RFA if that doesn't happen.
As expected, the Jazz exercised their team options on second-year players Trey Burke and Rudy Gobert. Both are guaranteed through 2015-16.
The Utah Jazz exercised team options on Trey Burke and Rudy Gobert.
And now, with 5:15 left in the game, Robinson finally checks in.
Will Barton checks into the game for the first time with 5:45 left. Thomas Robinson still has not played ... but is at the scorer's table.
Seven consecutive victories for the Ducks. Beat Columbus 4-1
By the looks of Nash's new hair style, he is preparing to star in the sequel of LA Confidential...
I'm so in on Meyers Leonard as a three-point shooter. Terrific comedic potential plus he might be OK at it!
Ahhhhhhh yeah, COMING TO AMERICA clips making an appearance at the Fela bash at The Crown & Harp - get over here...
After the win the kings ran on the floor to celebrate, followed by giving dap to Floyd Mayweather
The ultimate stunt was Simmons' reveal last night on the Grantland show that they had leased "Roundball Rock."
Wayne Ellington has a concussion and is seeing a neurologist tomorrow.
Wayne Ellington has a concussion after colliding with Ben McLenore and, here's that phrase again, will be evaluated again tomorrow.
Steve Nash: fans paid 2 watch him. Teammates & coaches should've paid 2 have played with him & coached him. 1st ballot HOF inductee in 5 yrs

Ben McLemore will need stitches above his right eye.
Kings get it at buzzer - more importantly preseason finally over
After running around the court and celebrating, the Kings each high-five Floyd Mayweather sitting courtside.
Ray McCallum just won the game with a putback at the buzzer. Ray likes to play well in Vegas. Kings win 93-92
The Kings are celebrating as if they won a championship after a buzzer-beating tip-in to beat the Lakers.
Hedu Turkoglu! Remember him?
Turk only counts by 3's
Lin makes 1 of 2 FTs, Kings down 92-91, 10.2 seconds to play.
If the Kings score, will Byron Scott call a timeout and let Kobe play the final possession?
All of us do them, but a 4 team playoff projection including both Mississippi schools is pointless. No different than a poll.
Draymond Green limps off. Problem with left leg. Trainers take a look.
Best part about it all: There's only one quarter left in the preseason. One. Friggin. Quarter.
TIE GAME. BRUH.
After three quarters: Trail Blazers 76, Clippers 64.
One quarter left in the preseason -- Clippers down 76-64.
John Wick is 101 minutes of Keanu Reeves straight blasting fools. It is the best kind of stupid. Highly recommended.
Two missed free throws. Again. http://t.co/VMXImQLFPh
Roscoe Smith just missed two free throws to keep the Kings in the game, down 91-89, 39 seconds to play.
Lakers only lead 91-89 with two free throws coming. No overtime, please.
Klay Thompson said he wasn't going for the preseason scoring title, but with 30 points already, he just might get it any way.
