With Russell Westbrook having a fractured bone in his hand, the Nets will not see either Westbrook or Kevin Durant this season.
If the Thunder beat the Clippers on the road without Westbrook and Durant after the Knicks-Cavs game earlier ... I give up.
30 assists on 37 shots for the Knicks tonight is pretty spectacular. Hard to believe things played out tonight the way they did.
Derek Fisher begins presser praising Tim Hardaway, Jr. for being supportive of teammates despite playing four minutes, staying positive.
This also is proof for anyone who was worked up about the Nets yesterday that it's a long season with plenty of ups-and-downs along the way.
Hats off to the Knicks. Cavs were out of sorts all night but still an incredibly impressive win after yesterday's debacle.
Will LeBron's albatross hamper the win-now Cavs going forward? Troll column:
The Cavaliers sure can get hot in a hurry.
This game is yet another example of why sports are the best. Totally unpredictable.
It's Quincy Acy's world, and we're all living in it.
Been impressed with Derek Fisher tonight. Hasn't minded experimenting with different combinations of players.
Quincy Acy just outfought multiple Cavs, including LeBron, for that ball, even though it was offensive interference.
Interesting Cavaliers lineup heading out here for the fourth: Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters, Shawn Marion, Mike Miller, and Tristan Thompson.
LeBron is clearly feeling the pressure from playing in the biggest sporting event of all-time.
The Devils just snapped an 18-game shootout losing streak. End the season now. March 10, 2013 Baauer-Harlem Shake was No. 1 song on charts.
Dan Gilbert's fancy new scoreboard is having issues in its first regular season game: http://t.co/zuvvGtVwto
LeBron James played about as bad a half as I've ever seen him play: 1-for-8, four turnovers.
That's one way to end a half. Kyrie Irving hits Tristan Thompson for an alley-ooo at the buzzer and Cleveland has a 44-42 lead at halftime.
LeBron almost always makes the right play. But now he’s just firing. Gotta be nerves.
The Knicks winning this game would be about the funniest thing ever, given all the hype surrounding the Cavaliers.
"And with the fourth pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks select..."
So when does Taylor Swift come on the court?
The good people of Cleveland loudly boo Justin Bieber when he was shown on the jumbotron.
Man, the Cavs are gonna be fun.
Is that Reggie Evans starting for the Knicks?
That Kevin Love outlet pass to LeBron James was breathtaking.
The scene inside Quicken Loans Arena just prior to tip: http://t.co/XUGqe3oyoZ
Radio announcer in the background kiiiiiind of ruining the moment.
This place is a madhouse.
Cavs part owner Usher singing the national anthem here today.
Crowd is going crazy every time LeBron is shown on the massive JumboTron here in Cleveland
Practically every seat is full 20 minutes before tip-off as the Cavaliers take the court for the first time to a standing ovation.
Didn’t take long for her to shake off New York http://t.co/Z4CGwpAT45
Taking one night off from Nets to take in LeBron's return to Cleveland against the Knicks, where it's quite a scene: http://t.co/hbwzbVf6Wi
Thrilla in Manila, Secretariat's Belmont, Miracle on Ice. Now LeBron II: "This is probably 1 of the biggest sporting events up there ever”
Sad to hear about Mayor Menino's passing this morning. His sports flubs were great and he always had fun with them. KJ and Hondo.
Solid work, everyone.
My mentions currently have people trying to make the argument that LeBron's homecoming isn't important to Cleveland sports history.
I can understand LeBron’s comment if he’s talking about physically up there in Cleveland. This is one of the bigger games in CLE history.
Madison Bumgarner's name comes from a newspaper headline his dad randomly saw -- just like in Mrs. Doubtfire.
Happy A-Rod Day everyone
But their play was completely overshadowed by the incredible number of miscues the team had as a whole, particularly defensively.
On a night of few positives for the Nets, the play of Williams and Garnett were about the only ones. Both looked good.
D-Will "It’s never good to lose like this but it should open our eyes a little bit. If we don’t come ready to play we’re going to get beat."
Hollins on Brook being missing: "Brook could have been there, but it wouldn’t have changed what I saw: the loose balls, the turnovers."
Madison Bumgarner matched anything I've ever seen in these playoffs. Simply sensational.
