Evan Turner vs. James Harden pillow fight!
It’s official. Pat Beverley has driven George Hill completely insane.
Anyone else catch West give one of his cheap elbows to Beverley at timeout?
David West with the walk-by shoulder bump on Pat Beverley going into timeout. Ultimate sign of respect.
Thunder, Spurs, Clippers Rockets . . . the Western Conference playoffs will be pure carnage.
Dwight Howard is manhandling Rpy Hibbert on both ends. I think we made a myth.
Pat Beverley in a mask is enjoyable television.
Wouldn't be surprised if some Heat players kidnap Mike Miller & don't allow him to leave Chicago with the Grizzlies.
James Harden needs to wear that hat every day. It matches the beard perfectly.
Mike Miller letting it fly on Madison...
Memphis and Chicago are sending basketball back to a time when crotchety anchors could appreciate it.
It's come to this Lakers fans - even the LA Kiss are talking smack about you. http://t.co/WKT6Ls9kMd
ABC bumps Knicks-Bulls from national TV on April 13 in favor of Pacers-Thunder. Thank you.
WADE on Beasley: "We’re going to need him. and we hope that he continues to get the concepts of what we’re trying to do."
WADE on Beasley: "It’s up and down for him. Of late, he has been playing very well for us as he’s trying to get back into his rhythm."
The Southwest boarding process has become more complicated than the NBA CBA. I need a trade exception to move to a new group.
CHRIS BOSH on the Pacers: "We’ve blown two great opportunities. We should be half a game back behind…what’s it called…the other team."
Mentioned this last night, but worth mentioning again: LeBron James is 1-for-19 on jumpers since Monday's 61-point game.
Pace-adjusted defensive rating over last 10: Pelicans 113.5, Lakers 111.6. Behold, the power of pace!
The Pelicans have allowed 105.6 points per game over their last 10. The Lakers: 116.9 points. Which has been worse on D?
My flight connection this morning in ATL is tighter than a sleeve jersey
People acting shocked that LeBron checks his messages at halftime. I assume half of these tweets were written while driving on 95.
Dwyane Wade: "Let's not make it about the jerseys. We got our butts kicked."
LEBRON on LeMask: “I had a message from my wife at halftime to put it back on, so I may be in trouble when I get home."
Wonder how many LeBron sleeved jerseys now will be sold. LeBron, "Not a big fan of the jerseys."
Heat will not have to wear sleeves balance of season.
Spoelstra said LeBron was not medically cleared to discard mask, that it was James' decision and Heat wasn't about to throw it back on him.
Friday and Saturday will represent the Heat's final multi-day break of the regular season. Games every night or every other night thereafter
LeBron wants to find out how many times he needs to wear sleeves. Cites 0 for 7 in ASG, struggle on J at XMas, struggle tonight.
LeBron says every time he shoots, he feels like jersey is pulling. "I don't have a lot of room for error on my jumper."
LeBron says his wife told him at halftime to put mask back on. Says now it will be game to game.
Spoelstra on LeBron and mask: "It was his decision to throw it off. We didn't throw it back at him."
Miami loses to Spurs, 113-87. San Antonio again nationally ignored, again legit. LeBron has made one shot outside paint in 2 games.
Stay weird, Heat-Spurs regular season games.
Make that 1-for-19. 1-for-11 today. 0-for-8 on Tuesday.
By my count, LeBron is 1-for-20 on jumpers since Monday's 61.
Beasley needs to play now. See if he catches fire. Take PGs off the floor. Nothing else is working.
Can't wait 'til someone asks LeBron about the sleeves.
Scott Foster doing the Scott Foster thing. Foster might just have pulled a Boeheim, ending this one.
Reminder that Miami is in Chicago on Sunday. Bulls are hot, and Heat don't tend to play well there. Could be 0-3 trip.
It's been another rough, rough one for Norris Cole.
This is the Patty Mills we remember from college.
That was 26 words of Gregg Popovich with Craig Sager.
Spurs 82, Heat 74 at end of third. Were down 17 early, were within five in third.
After making his first eight 3s against Charlotte on Monday, LeBron has missed 8 straight 3s since.
Michael Beasley doing things . . . on defense.
Popovich joking before the game on starting Diaw: "We’re just tricking the hell out of them. They’ll never know what hit them."
You can see LeBron pulling back from some plays, on both ends, he normally attacks. A few more minutes and he'll be back in attack mode.
This is really a big step for Beasley tonight. Spoelstra trusting him against this team, even w/ full roster.
That might have been the greatest defensive play of Michael Beasley's career. Good technique. Stood ground vs. Duncan.
Chris Bosh leading the Heat charge
Kevin Durant is moving ahead in the MVP race as we speak!!!!!
LeBron really fighting that jumper. Little confidence in it tonight. After explosion vs. Charlotte, was 0-of-9 outside 2 feet in Houston.
LeBron has more fouls than field goals.
Can't recall many times when LeBron has gotten three fouls so quickly.
A big 19 points for Chris Bosh with Wade and LeBron struggling.
Diaw's 3 closes first half scoring for Spurs. San Antonio leads 62-51. Inefficient half for LeBron, who ditched the mask.
Wild finish at end of second quarter. Spurs 62, Heat 51 at half. Could have been worse.
Beasley becoming highly useful lately.
They apparently found us new seats here. Still, I'm thinking of going to Costco.
Not clear path, but Spurs in the bonus.
Duncan re-initiating Oden. Better these lessons are re-learned now.
I'll be tweeting from the basement, watching the TNT feed. Not that there's much to say. Heat -- other than Bosh -- have no-showed so far.
If George can reach out to LeBron for mentorship, then Oden should cull the lessons of verticality from Hibbert.
Or Oden enters just as we say that.
Foul trouble again for Birdman. Don't know if Spoelstra wants Oden to deal with all this penetration.
The Spurs are shooting 15-for-17 on 2s. Solid percentage.
Spurs 37, Heat 22 after first period. Heat playing same early defense they did in Houston. Spurs 15 of 19 from field.
Patty Mills not waving a towel? Say it ain't so.
El Heat clearly not as good as The Heat.
It's beginning to look a lot like the beginning in Houston.
Tim Duncan, point god.
Tony Parker is getting in the paint way too much.
LeBron broke his nose exactly two weeks ago in Oklahoma City. He had played four games with it before ditching it in this first quarter.
But Birdman has his headband back.
LeBron now without the mask. He said pregame he expected another week with it.
Don't expect many tweets from me tonight. I think I'm on AOL dial-up here at arena.
