We just cannot get rid of them, apparently.
Clippers aren't wasting anytime, shadowing Westbrook with double teams anytime he gets passed the free throw line.
How long before Brandon Jennings loses his starting job to DJ Augustin? Jennings played just 15 mins in both DET loses. Augustin +20 points
2 minutes left, Mavs are up 18 over Utah and about to pick up their first win. DAL with 7 players in double figures, JJ Barea playing w/ DAL
Where did this Knicks offense come from? 30 assists on 37 makes. Shot 54% as a team. NYK outscored CLE 77-65 after the 1Q.
Well, it looks like 81-1 is still on the table for the Cavs...
"Why wouldn't I want the last shot? When I know I've already made it." - Carmelo Anthony's commercial back in 2005.
Ryie Ryie Irving...
The Knicks have assisted on 83% of their made shots tonight, 29 of 35 to be exact. NYK also shooting 53% from the floor.
Note to self: Never walk into a Wal-Mart the day before All Hallows' Eve.

It would be really interesting to hold a draft of the top 50 UL and UT players and see how that would break down.
I'm trying not to make any comparisons, but, you know.
The speed and playmaking ability of Charlie Strong's former team is striking. Both sides of the ball.
Kevin Love puts up 12 points, 7 boards, and 3 assists in his first quarter as a Cavalier.
Gotta love Chuck, calling out TNT and ESPN, one network he works for, for showing the Lakers.
Love is going to get all the open 3s he wants this season.
2:43 left in the first quarter, the Knicks have 7 rebounds as a team. Kevin Love has 7 rebounds by himself.
8 points, 5 boards, and 2 assists for Kevin Love in his first 8 minutes as a Cavalier.
Kevin Love grabs the defensive board, then outlets to LeBron who catches the ball at the opposite three point line.
Gotta take the 3 Bobby!
Late here, but Spurs announced Kawhi Leonard will be available to play vs. Suns Friday. Patty Mills, Tiago Splitter are still out.
Sounds like a bunch, but consider the context: 1) Duncan and Manu are on their way out and 2) salary cap is rising dramatically.
A maximum extension for Kawhi will be in the five-year, $90 million range given the projected salary cap.
That Yellow Album - Chopped and Screwed
Trying to find Drake - All Me with the last Drizzy verse on it is nearly impossible.
I'm not saying it's right or wrong. I'm just saying ... it will be fascinating.
Marc Gasol and the Spurs are a perfect marriage. They would grow old together.
Why waste time and tie up $$ on an offer sheet that's just going to get matched? It depresses market value of the best RFAs, which is weird.
Can be difficult for a player to attract offers in RFA, when suitors are 100% certain that player's team will match ANYTHING.
Assuming no extension gets done with Kawhi before tomorrow's deadline, restricted free agency next summer will be fascinating.
Not that they NEEDED him, but still hard not to think about how well Gasol would have fit in SA's offense. Perfect fit.
Manu writes columns during the NBA season. He's the essence of cool.
I'm always scared to follow the link whenever Marco announces new photos on Facebook...
Reminder: The Spurs have until tomorrow to extend Kawhi Leonard's contract. Otherwise, he's a restricted free agent.
Full disclosure: I"m going to be ripping off both those pieces when I have to write my own thing if a deal doesn't get done by the deadline.
Frankly, not sure what the hold up is. Not going to get him for less than max dollars, absolutely cannot let him walk, so...?
Universe speaking to me: I got blocked in by a gas tanker in the parking lot in the time it took me to go back in and take that picture.
Seriously...your team has three Hall of Famers on it. How do you go Jefferson? Like Showtime fan picking AC Green. (Except he was solid).
Taken 30 seconds ago at my friendly neighborhood Valero. He chose poorly... http://t.co/6ZXdiUxzUR
He's baaaaaack. http://t.co/zYiCPNHvG4
Kawhi respectfully declined to speak to the media. Wants to get a game or two in.
Popovich said Leonard will travel, is expected to play Friday against Phoenix. "He's in for Friday."
Scratch that last bit regarding NASL semis on KSAT. Rather, MeTV 12.2
Upside to Texas and Tech both sporting losing records? Lubbock hotel rates for this weekend have dropped $100/night since September.
The Thunder have to get on a plane and head to Cali after this, they play in the Clippers' season opener Thursday. Yikes.
And just like that, Blazers went from up 8 to up 16. 26-8 scoring edge in the 4th for Portland.
LaMarcus Aldridge's pick and pop game is basically a layup for him. So good.
Who were these Celtics tonight? 5-6 passes on some possessions for scores. Rondo was just a wizard after some motion sets to start plays.
Suns blowout Lakers by 20. Kobe scored 31 points, didn't matter in the end. 3-headed Phoenix PG Dragon went for 57 points in debut together.
Isaiah Thomas is leading the Suns with 23 points as they're up by 24 over the Lakers. Darren Collison has 9 points as Kings are down 10.
Russell Westbrook has 33 points right now. That's more than all Blazers players not named LaMarcus Aldridge and Wesley Matthews.
Nice night for Chris Bosh: 26 points, 15 boards, 4 assist, 1 steal, and 1 block. Had to play close to 40 minutes. Wade also with 21 for MIA.
Nice opening night for Brad Stevens and the Celtics: 3 quarters with +30 points, shot 56%, 28 assists, 8 players in double-figs scoring.
Sweet jacket, KD
I'm not one for moral victories but the Royals had a great October!
I didn't actually handle one of them. For those who did, are they made of plastic or metal?
Now I'm kind of pissed I didn't snake one.
Wow, sold listings are even crazier: $299 (multiple), $250 (multiple), $240, $225. Hope people realize these things aren't real.
Current e-Bay bids for Spurs replica rings: $222.50, $163.50, $202.50, $155, $257, $177.50...unbelievable.
260 innings this year and Bumgarner still hasn't got that stuff out of his nose.
Lets go Royals!
Kyle Anderson was a DNP last night for the Spurs. He'll get some burn eventually, but going to be mostly a learning year for pick No. 30.
So many games on love having league pass im in heaven
There is a chance -- a chance -- that I am the third-best athlete in this photo. http://t.co/CutuZVyK4i
Qué noche la de anoche! Entrega de anillos, emoción y victoria en el clásico. Impecable.
