Biz with a lane violation negates a Zeller free throw.
Henderson can play lots of small forward tonight because Bucks play small. That's harder down the road, like against Miami.
That brush-up a minute ago seems to have gotten Gerald Henderson a little fired up. Nice move to the rim.
Gerald Henderson and OJ Mayo share some niceties...not really.
Biz with a very nice roll to the basket for a dunk. Hopefully time watching helped.
Bucks now have a shot-clock violation and two air balls less than 3 minutes in. How a team gets to 2-12...(or 7-59).
Bucks shot clock violation right off the top.
No Caron Butler for the Bucks. Swollen left knee.
I just read Alexis Ajinca is the Euroleague's leading scorer. Who's No. 2, Jamario Moon?
Bucks coach Larry Drew: "We have not been able to put together four solid quarters."
Clifford said MKG's pain was bad enough Thursday to place him in a boot. Sunday (LeBron James) MKG's D would be missed.
No determination beyond tonight on severity of MKG's plantar fasciitis. Clifford "optimistic" this might clear up in couple of days.
MKG out tonight. Jeff Taylor will start. Steve Clifford anticipates using Ben Gordon some tonight vs. Bucks.
Wondering why the Bucks are 2-12? They're 28th (among 30 teams) in both pts per game and field-goal %.Also 28th in opponent FG%.
Bucks average 17.5 turnovers (5th-most in NBA). Opponents score an average of 20.53 points off Bucks turnovers -- most in the league.
Regarding plantar fasciitis (MKG's injury): Dell Curry called it most painful injury he's experienced. Compared it to arch being on fire.
Don't have more detail than that on MKG's foot. Will pass along when I hear something.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has a foot injury that leaves him "highly questionable" for tonight, Steve Clifford tells the Observer.
“Sink your roots in him & build on him. Be strengthened by the faith that you were taught, and overflow with thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:7
Today I'm thankful for entertaining football games! What a day!!!
I hope every1 had a great Thanksgiving! I can't sum up all the things I'm thankful for in 140 characters so I'm just gonna say I'm blessed!
See what happens when you channel-surf at kickoff?
Happy Thanksgiving!!! Also, it's now acceptable to start celebrating Christmas!!! I'm writing a letter to Santa today!
Cody -- and this is normal, by-and-large -- isn't strong enough to guard pro 4s. And yet the cry is "Why isn't he playing more!"
Frank Vogel said with conviction pre-game that Cody Zeller is the most athletic of the 3 brothers. My question: How long until that matters?
So after tonight every NBA coach will have a cup of ice tea ready to pour on the court. It's the NASCAR phantom "debris" yellow flag.
Don't mean this as a knock on Michael Carter-Williams. But Tyler Ennis is much more a prototype point guard.
It's hard to imagine a scenario right now where Heat and Pacers don't meet in Eastern Conference Finals.
Bucks will show up at Time Warner Cable Arena Friday on a 10-game losing streak.
Excellent game on ESPN between Syracuse and Baylor.
Brad Daugherty was incredibly generous with his time to discuss Dean Smith's relationship with his players.
Final: Pacers 99, Bobcats 74
Pargo's third game appearance. Previous two were on the road.
Pacers spread lead to 79-62 with 6:43 left. Timeout starts the fan exit process.
NBA warned teams before season that touching the ball after a basket -- regardless of whether intentional -- is automatic delay of game.
A simultaneous lane violation on both teams. That's a new one.
Five fouls on Cody Zeller in 14 minutes. Biz coming in for 1st significant minutes in four games.
Four fouls on Indiana star Paul George, sending him to the bench.
A total 23 fouls called this first half.
Very dubious foul called against MKG.
Walker-Henderson backcourt a combined 2-of-12 from the field tonight.
I'm sure Zeller knows this, but he needs to add muscle, more than anything, to improve next summer.
Foul No. 3 on Zeller.
Cody Zeller gets foul No. 2 seven minutes in. Luis Scola just the sort of strong, thick guy Zeller will struggle against.
Ball is going to Hibbert in the post every possession he's guarded by Adrien.
Roy Hibbert posts up Jeff Adrien immediately. Huge size difference there.
A total 11 points scored in game's first 6 minutes. Like 3rd-grade church league on Saturday mornings.
Considering the Pacers' defense, I might be typing "shot clock" some tonight.
Pacers are NBA's best defensively as measured by points allowed, field goal % and points-per-possession.
Asked for specifics, Vogel said, "The help is always there and they help the helper'' just as well.
St. Francis of Assisi said, “Seek to understand before seeking to be understood."
I'm only about getting better. In all facet of life. Anyone or thing that's not going to help me do that will be left behind, far behind...
The thing pro scouts will like about Tyler Ennis is court vision: He always knows where teammates are, so you better be ready for any pass.
My 1st chance to watch Syracuse. Really curious if Tyler Ennis is all that.
Someone asked Steve Clifford today what makes Pacers so good. He replied they're clearly the NBA's best defensive team.
Talked to Biz, too. Naturally he doesn't want to sit, but said he doesn't concern himself with things beyond his control.
I asked Steve Clifford today about Biz not playing. Clifford said Adrien was playing so much better it'd be wrong not go this way.
