Never seen Paul Millsap look this bad
Budenholzer subbing quicker than the other night, shorter stints for his starters. Trying to win this in the fourth.
DeMarre Carroll doesn't have much, but is really competing.
Have always liked Paul Millsap as a player, but this isn't the way you want to go into free agency. Looks overmatched.
Al Horford walking gingerly on sideline
Shawn Marion's first meaningful minutes in a while
Paul Millsap was 1-for-5 in first quarter. Al Horford didn't take a shot. Tristan Thompson is the one who has looked like the All-Star.
DeMarre Carroll in for Bazemore. Carroll was icing knee. Short rest, so it doesn't stiffen
Watching LeBron bully Kent Bazemore in the post -- which he can do every time -- should make Hawks fans even angrier at NYPD
Apparently there also are a few Lightning fans here at the game in Tampa. And I thought Miami was New York South.
James Jones guarding Pero Antic. Mike Scott would present more of a threat.
DeMarre Carroll wasn't especially effective in first stint, so I wonder if he gets a second in half -- or if Budenholzer looks at Mike Scott
J.R. Smith's first 9-1-1 shot doesn't fall. And Kyle Korver already has as many shots as in Game 1
Dellavedova has been really good on the defensive end. Upgrade from what Irving was offering.
Paul Millsap needs to find his game quickly for Atlanta
LeBron holding the ball for a while, then testing whether Carroll can move laterally. Bazemore will be in early.
Carroll is clearly gimpy
Dellavedova starts by missing a jumper to the right. Was his issue in game 1.
DeMarre Carroll has a free agent payday on the line, and is pushing through. Was grimacing in warmups.
DeMarre Carroll is starting. To which I say... wow.
Again, while Dwyane Wade may not have pushed through everything in regular season (due to "maintenance"), he always did in the playoffs.
And, while hardly his fault, Kevin Love is missing his 8th playoff game tonight. Chris Bosh missed 9 of 87 in 4 seasons w/ LeBron.
Since the Kyrie Irving comparison is commonly made, Dwyane Wade missed 1 playoff game (out of 87) in 4 postseasons w/ LeBron. G4, R1, 2013.
(2/2)... Irving is at the arena tonight. Cavaliers hopeful he can play Sunday. Foot, which was also an issue, no longer is. Just knee.
Some clarity on Irving situation: still diagnosed as tendinitis, but Dr. Andrews had different interpretation/plan on how to treat (1/2)..
This morning, there was much talk about "pain tolerance" for Irving. Now, after exam revealed nothing new, it's a "medical decision."
Kyrie Irving was evaluated by Dr. James Andrews in Florida. No additional MRI. Exam confirmed what Cavs already knew.
David Blatt won't reveal his starting PG, but there's only one real option, unless he goes with LeBron & spacers.
David Blatt keeps repeating that it was "a medical decision." Not offering specifics, but that takes the burden off Irving.
David Blatt says it was a "medical decision" for Irving to sit tonight
Kyrie Irving out tonight
Mike Budenholzer says DeMarre Carroll is still "game-time decision." Told it's close to game-time, he quips, "it's almost time 4 a decision"
David Samson said he is disappointed no players turned out for team's community event last night. Some fans expressed anger on Twitter.
Dolphins CB Will Davis, off ACL, expected to be ready for start of training camp, Hickey tells The Ticket.
South FL…hope to see you on Saturday http://t.co/xqoL2Fq8ye
Kyrie Irving not at Shootaround today so he can undergo additional testing on his knee. Questionable for tonight
Out of the 15 All-NBA players this season, only three were from the East (James, Irving, Gasol). No Hawks.
Don't. Leave. Curry. http://t.co/A1zHzrwTxn
We need more Aussies in the NBA.
It doesn't come down to the final play -- or even remotely close to it -- if it weren't for James Harden's heroics.
Stephen Curry was wiiiiiiiiide open that final possession, btw.
What in the …?
WHAT A GAME
Three defenders on Harden and he finds Howard for the oop with game on the line.
James Harden is unreal.
We got a game
Steph swishes are one of a kind, man.
So one of these teams is going to have to bring itself down by playing an East team next? Seems kind of wrong.
It's a cookoff.
If you’re not watching this basketball game, get in front of a TV right now.
Houston on 37-19 run since the Andre Iguodala dunk. Life comes at you fast.
Houston on 39-17 run since the Andre Iguodala dunk. Life comes at you fast.
🎶 Thiiiis is how we blew iiiiiit. 🎶
This is like bizarro Game 1.
Dwight just pulled a Kyle Korver.
Also good from right corner, I guess.
Curry is now 31/46 (67.3 percent) on left corner 3s on the season. Factoring the extra point, he's effectively shooting 101.1 percent there.
Steph Curry from the left corner ... 🔥🔥🔥
Look for the Golden State security guard w/ the Afro. Best hair in the league.
SportsCenter hit at a club ... on a Thursday. 8:15 pm. http://t.co/IFAM6V1sCU
Among those Riley getting opportunity to see are potential Heat No. 10 picks Stanley Johnson, Kelly Oubre and Frank Kaminsky.
With regard to MLS, UM remains very interested in site near Marlins Park. UM feels strongly that stadium must be 40,000 seats.
