Mary Stevens

Portland's Chris Kaman has a right shoulder strain and will not return.

Josh Robbins

Halftime: Magic 58, Blazers 56. Payton: 14 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals. Lillard: 16 points, 2 rebs, 2 assts.

Quadruple-double alert in Orlando. With 2:21 left in the 2nd, Elfrid Payton has 12 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals.

John Denton

Another dazzling move from @Orlando Magic rookie PG @Elfrid Payton who drives hard left, pump-fakes to make RLopez jump. Spins to right and scores.

John Denton

Back-to-back triple-double watch for @Orlando Magic rookie PG @Elfrid Payton ... He has 8 pts, 4 reb, 4 assists with 4 min left in 1st half.

Josh Robbins

Ben Gordon with 6:16 left in the 2nd quarter: 7 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists.

Midway through the 2nd Q @Orlando Magic have yet to turn the ball over, while @Portland Trail Blazers have kicked it away 7 times. 3 for Arron Afflalo.

Mary Stevens

Luke Ridnour drills a three. Magic up 38-25 with 8:54 left in the second quarter. Portland calls timeout.

Today’s games are rolling, but once more, my stories from yesterday on Ga. St. (foxs.pt/1Ez9Ix3) & Harvard (foxs.pt/1AOvbyj).

The availability of Tobias Harris, Dewayne Dedmon & Willie Green will be determined closer to tipoff, James Borrego said.

Sam Gardner

Harvard senior Wesley Saunders did everything but win last night in the final game of his impressive Crimson career: foxs.pt/1AOvbyj

Sam Gardner

Arkansas escapes Wofford 56-53. Wofford had two decent looks at 3 on its last possession. Three tough games today for big favorites, though.

Dan Savage

You can see why they call it March Madness.

Sam Gardner

Obviously still a long way to go, and I wouldn’t bet on Portis having less than 10 when it’s done, but Wofford's done a nice job on SEC POY.

Sam Gardner

Just two points on 1-of-3 shooting in the 2nd half for Bobby Portis. Only 8 for the game. He’s only been held under 10 twice this season.

Sam Gardner

Michael Qualls is dunking like the rim owes him money.

Tobias Harris

I'm just waiting for Providence tomorrow!!! @Tyler25Harris

Tobias Harris

Hampton like !! 😳😳 http://t.co/IAH6EvxWEc

Sam Gardner

Harvard had made 7 of 9 shots leading up to Chambers’ 4-point play but the Crimson missed their final three attempts of the game (all 3s).

Sam Gardner

UNC escapes, 67-65. Crushing loss for Harvard, which had plenty of chances at the end and just couldn’t convert.

Sam Gardner

Siyani Chambers’ 4-point play gives Harvard a 65-63 lead over North Carolina with 1:15 to play. Wow.

Tobias Harris

If Cinncinatti pulls this off tho...... !!!

Sam Gardner

UNC clinging to a 60-57 lead @ the under-4:00 time out. Harvard will shoot two free throws after the break. Lead hasn’t been at 1 since 8-7.

Sam Gardner

North Carolina lead is back up to five after a pair of free throws. 60-55 with 5:00 to go.

Sam Gardner

Could we have another upset on our hands? Harvard has trailed the whole game — by as much as 16 — but is within 3 of UNC with 5:26 to go.

Georgia State upsetting Baylor marked a special moment for father and son (and coach and player) Ron and R.J. Hunter: foxs.pt/1Ez9Ix3

Cancel the rest of the games. I just wanna watch that Vine of Ron Hunter falling off his stool on repeat all night: bit.ly/1biL4Hg

Sam Gardner

So, uh, about this… we can just pretend it never happened right? bit.ly/1xD2m6o

Aaron Gordon

WIN AND ADVANCE AZ! I'm trying to tell y'all

Sam Gardner

Taurean Prince, Royce O’Neale and Kenny Chery were about as speechless and terse as you’d be if you lost a game like Baylor just did.

Tobias Harris

How everyone feels about their bracket right now 😑😑 http://t.co/D11DONvVH2

Sam Gardner

And coach Ron Hunter — torn Achilles, scooter and all — celebrating the win with Georgia State fans: http://t.co/N3MCfkyIr3

Sam Gardner

And here’s R.J. Hunter, the most popular man at Georgia State right now: http://t.co/25sTle4H8M

Sam Gardner

This is how it feels to win an NCAA tournament game you had no business winning: http://t.co/iMJr2MQfLG

Sam Gardner

Oh wow. RJ Hunter, who was basically invisible for the first 35 min of the game, hit a 3 from Atlanta to give GSU 57-56 lead with 2.8 left.

Sam Gardner

Isaiah Dennis splits a pair of free throws to cut the Baylor lead to 56-54. Bears on line with 14.1 to go.

Sam Gardner

That T.J. Shipes free throw wasn’t even close for Georgia State. Blew the 1-and-1. Baylor still up 56-53 with the ball and 30.3 to go.

Sam Gardner

Another Hunter steal and layup cuts it to 56-53. Baylor calls time out with 1:07 left. Bears have completely folded under GSU pressure.

Sam Gardner

Seven straight points for R.J. Hunter and Georgia State is within five at 56-51 with 1:28 left. Perhaps I sharpie’d too soon?

Sam Gardner

Just one field goal in the last nine minutes for GSU, which only has 2:54 to overcome a 12-point deficit against Baylor. Sharpie.

Evan Fournier

So this dude infront of me has one of the best car i ever seen but hes taking foreeeeever to park #badmove

Sam Gardner

Georgia State hasn’t scored a point in 4:04 and hasn’t made a field goal in 5:33. Bad time for a drought like that.

Sam Gardner

A 7-0 Baylor run gives Bears a 49-42 lead with 7:45 to go and forces a GSU time out. Panthers are very close to letting this one slip away.

Sam Gardner

Baylor is killing themselves with turnovers. Bears have 15 for the game and 8 already in second half. Just 5 for Georgia State.

Sam Gardner

R.J. Hunter (19.8 ppg) has just 4 points on 1-of-7 shooting so far, but Panthers trail just 42-41, 11:51 to go. This is getting interesting.

Sam Gardner

Baylor has turned the ball over four times in the last 2:20 and Georgia State has used a 6-0 run to take a 41-40 lead with 13:10 to play.

Sam Gardner

Both teams shooting the ball well in the first half: Baylor 54.2%, Georgia State 55%.

Sam Gardner

Taurean Prince hit a 3 at the buzzer to give Baylor a 33-30 lead over Ga. St. going into the half. Prince has 10 points to lead all scorers.

Sam Gardner

After missing 7 of their first 10 shots against Baylor, Georgia State has made 9 of 12 since the 12:41 mark. 26-26.

Sam Gardner

And we’re off here in Jacksonville: http://t.co/z3DYdUz0Ax

Sam Gardner

Georgia State coach Ron Hunter just came out to a nice ovation from the fans: http://t.co/zbWyi7vzmA

Sam Gardner

Ryan Harrow (hamstring) isn’t warming up for Georgia State. Seems he’ll be watching this one from the bench.

Sam Gardner

Sitting right in front of the Georgia State section here in Jacksonville. Their fans are nothing if not rowdy. Ga. St.-Baylor tips in 30.

Despite a loss, the Magic took solace from the fight they showed vs. the Mavs. Story w/postgame video: ht.ly/Kwjwo

Josh Robbins

End of the 3rd quarter: Mavs 86, Magic 70. Nowitzki: 22 points. Oladipo: 15 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists.

John Denton

On Jan. 31, @Orlando Magic fell behind @DallasMavs by 27 pts and cut it to 5. This time, ORL fell down by 22 and got within 13. Stay tuned.

Josh Robbins

Halftime: Mavs 65, Magic 48. Ellis: 17 points. Vucevic and Harkless: 10 points apiece.

Josh Robbins

On Jan. 18, OKC shot 73 percent in the first half against the Magic. Tonight, the Mavs are shooting 68 percent.

Josh Robbins

End of the 1st: Mavs 31, Magic 23. Ellis: 7 points. Vucevic and Harkless: 6 points apiece.

John Denton

The @Orlando Magic have been exceptional out of timeouts under James Borrego. They got an open 3 from @Moe Harkless for 1st pts of night.

John Denton

Bad combo as @Orlando Magic miss their first 4 shots and Mavs hit their first 5. 2 3s, 2 layups and a J.

Josh Robbins

Mavericks sink their first 5 shots of the game and lead the Magic 12-0.

Josh Robbins

Tonight's game will be Moe Harkless' 2nd start of the season.

Josh Robbins

Magic starters: Payton, Oladipo, Harkless, Frye and Vucevic.
