LeBron's response to losing that game is kin to Recruitiphiles saying "We didn't want that player anyway" when they go to another college.
New coach, same old Josh Smith http://t.co/4hqrbHK9Ie
...even Quincy Acy, who started for the Knicks tonight and had 8 points, 10 rebounds in an upset of the Cavaliers.
Players drafted after John Jenkins in 2012: Miles Plumlee, Perry Jones, Festus Ezeli, Jeff Taylor, Draymond Green...
Perry Jones 32 points. John Jenkins inactive, option declined.
Clippers and Thunder are shooting a combined 5-of-33 from three-point territory.
"I find it unlikely that the option will be picked up, or that Jenkins will be among the 13 active players once the regular season starts."
Just spent the past five minutes laughing at that Phil Jackson and Carmelo video. Reasons I love the internet, man
Jenkins, option declined; Nogueira, traded for cap space; Schröder, hasn't shown anything; Payne inactive. Could Ferry have drafted worse?
Danny Ferry's talent acquisition through the draft during his tenure with the Hawks has been an unmitigated disaster.
Man, Matt Barnes hacked Andre Roberson at least seven times on that drive to the lane
Al-Farouq Aminu finishes with 16 points and 10 rebounds in only 20 minutes of action tonight. Even knocked down a three-pointer.
Just 12 points off the bench for the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight. The Knicks had 41 points from the pine. Huge.
So many good games on... Take your pick FOOTBALL or BASKETBALL?
Al-Farouq Aminu has always been a very underrated rebounder at the small forward position. He has nine tonight in just 13 minutes of PT
Charles Barkley never fails to take a shot at Atlanta basketball fans, every opportunity he gets
Nikola Vucevic averaging 19.5 points, 17 rebounds and 2 blocks through the Magic's first two games this season
Quincy Acey, destroyer of worlds
Twolves 23-7 run in 3rd
Shane Larkin 4-5 tie game
Fournier and Ridehour takeover
Gordon Hayward had only eight points in the regular season opener ... already has nine with time left in the first quarter
Cohesion b/t LeBron, Love and Kyrie quicker because his two new running mates easily took lesser roles. Bosh and Wade had success w/o him
This Knicks starting lineup has to be one of the worst I've ever seen
"Fo' shizzle," declared team's new CEO Steve Koonin, a.k.a. Stevie K. as the 57-year-old executive referred to himself... pls make it stop
The sale of the Atlanta Hawks cannot possibly happen soon enough.
I'll be talking about this game 80 games from now when playoff position is being set.
Players who care about winning NBA basketball games do not play the way Jeff Teague played over that stretch.
I hope someone will play for Teague the final minutes of the first half and first minutes of the 2nd half of this game.
In conclusion, if Kyle Lowry makes the All-Star team this year and Jeff Teague doesn't, and Teague has any questions about that...
I thought the officiating evened out through 3 qtrs but refs are giving raps everything in last 5 mins as hawks stage comeback
Feeling pretty good about predicting Mike Scott's most improved player candidacy.
You know what I haven't noticed in this game at the end of the 3rd? A single Mike Scott defensive mistake.
Teague is worse defensively to start the second half than he was to close the first. I didn't know that was possible.
Lowry is making a much better argument for All Star consideration in this game. Head to head matchups will matter.
Mack won't always play this poorly but Teague's continued defensive indifference is alarming. He talked good game in preseason about leading
This sequence by Teague is as bad as Mack's was earlier and had as much to do with why the Hawks lost.
Then Teaugue terrible pass, Patterson 3 on weak close by Horford. This is NOT how you close a half guys!
Lowry blows by Teague effortlessly on consecutive possessions. Second time Teague trotted back, watched him go by with disinterest.
Korver caught on pick, another Ross 3 b4 half. Teague 3 makes it 51-50 raps with 2:23. Gotta close out halves guys!
DeRozan self pass not called, instead foul on Scott. Korver late recovery to Ross, open 3. Great ball movement on Korver 3.
Then a bad pass by Mack leads to Vasquez 3 in transition. This is where the game was lost.
Watching the game on dvr. Mack's poor night started with an open three for Lou after he lost his man. Then a Vasquez 3, Mack caught on pick.
i.e. Horford made more shots outside the paint last night than he did the entire preseason.
Positive development: After shooting 3-for-17 (18%) outside the paint for the preseason, Al Horford shot 4-for-7 (57%) vs Raps
BTW: It makes sense that Bud held Antic out of opener. Jonas Valanciunas gets away with more elbows than any other NBA player.
Hawks bench -Scott (20 PTS) shot 3-12 25% 7 REB 7 AST 3 TO 7 PTS; SA bench in opener -Ginobili (20 PTS) 7-13 54% 12 REB 8 AST 6 TO 16 PTS

Did you miss our appearance on 20/20 last night? http://t.co/TUWXep3PJe
The Hawks and Fox Sports announce a long term agreement. All 82 regular season games will be televised nxt season including 3 preseason gms
Some odds and ends. Through the first two games, the Rockets are 26-of-56 (46.4%) from three-point rage. Not shy from deep at all.
Sticking w/ Charlotte Hornets. Interesting to see Bismack Biyombo receive a DNP-CD tonight. Had only missed five games total last 2 years
Keep an eye out on Gerald Henderson's role in CHAR. Was starting SG until Lance Stephenson took spot. Now Gary Neal is ahead on depth chart
Hornets HC Steve Clifford has preached patience w/ Lance Stephenson offensively. Struggled tonight, but grabbed 10 rebs and dished 8 dimes
Marvin Williams could turn out to be a true bargain signing for Charlotte. Scored 19, grabbed 4 boards and hit three 3PT buckets in debut
Jusuf Nurcic alert... 7 rebs so far... underrated this kid
Josh Smith playing for a good coach for the first time in his life. Pls refer to your local box score.
Manimal sits with four fouls
