The main takeaway from St. John's-Providence is that Sir'Dom needs his braids redone.
Stevens does not expect Kelly Olynyk to play before All-Star break. But said if he’s healthy enough, KO could play in Rising Stars.
C’s will fly to New York Sunday. Before or after Super Bowl? Stevens said he’ll conference with noted Patriots fan Gerald Wallace.
Incoming snow has Celtics calling travel audible after Sunday’s game. Interest in Super Bowl adds another layer of difficulty to travel.
If Chris Obekpa had any consistent offensive game, he would be a total beast. Defensively, he's an ace rim-protector
Melo says Lakers' free-agent pitch to him was "great.' "I might take that from them (laughs)... and start recruiting on my own over here."
DMN above-the-fold front page picture of the 10-yr-old crying as he leaves Prime Prep is a massive kick to the crotch. Pretty disheartening
It's 'Wrestling night' in Memphis. First 3k fans get WWE style Grizzlies belt lol http://t.co/kb10orwBAb
Looks like a well-officiated game being enjoyed by a rational crowd at the Prudential Center, amirite?
The Tune Squad and the East All-Star jerseys are fantastically similar http://t.co/pE2KfdNJ79
I used to really dislike soup -- or the idea of it. It wasn't a 'meal'. Now...if I see tomato soup on the menu, anywhere, I'm having it.
I'm at Verizon Center to watch Hoyas play Creighton in Omaha. Obviously.
What if James Harden was as honest as Reggie Jackson was. How would you feel then?
Stevens on playing East teams that are also competing for playoffs: "Every game matters the same. No game is more impt than others to us."
Kelly Olynyk is out for at least another week, says Brad Stevens. "I don't expect him to play until after the All-Star break."
Olynyk could potentially play in Rising Stars Challenge if he's healthy enough to play a regular nba game.
Stevens doesn't anticipate Olynyk playing until after the All-Star break.
Very excited as autocorrect wanted to turn "Huffhines" into "Huffhinesrobot"
Kevin Durant's limp was basically gone on the way out of shootaround today. My guess is he'll play tonight. But we'll see.
Knicks coach Derek Fisher obviously knows Kobe well. Fish: "What he’s learning through this adversity is learning what he can & can't do"
Stevens on Sully: "We're trying to put him in more spots. We're trying to get him to score it on the block, facing up and on the perimeter."
Sounds like Tuesday at soonest for Amar'e playing. Melo thinks he will play Sunday against the Lakers, not watching celebrity bowling.
Jared Sullinger says that Brad Stevens has asked him to take more shots, and off of different actions, since Boston's stretch of trades.
Sullinger said Stevens has asked him to take more shots (and in different types of actions) since the trades.
Proud of my youth team as they improved to 7-0. Also proud of myself for not knocking the opposing coach out. He was doing too much today
Kings have been pretty solid in back-to-back situations (8-8). 3-4 in the second game, but have only been swept once.
Asked Russell Westbrook his Super Bowl pick: "Marshawn Lynch's team. So Seahawks. That's my homie."
(of players who have played 60min or more)
Looking at on/off court #'s, and I'm constantly amazed at the impact George Hill has on both sides. IND is +6.9 w/ him, best on the team.
Scott Brooks said Kevin Durant participated in parts of shootaround today. He's a game-time decision tonight vs Memphis.
Looks like City isn't ready to settle for Silva in the title race yet.
Chelsea is unfair
Norris Cole was 1-of-10 shooting last night, capping a tough month: 36.7 percent from the field and 22 percent from three-point range.
Sacramento Kings injury report: DeMarcus Cousins (Left Ankle Sprain) - PROBABLE Carl Landry (Right Wrist Sprain) - PROBABLE
Good chance Marvin Williams plays Monday in Washington.
Wolves list Zach and Mo questionable for tonight. Ricky, Robby and Shabazz all listed as out
Marvin Williams (concussion) will not play tonight vs. Nuggets. P.J. Hairston (sprained ankle) likely will play.
Flip Saunders said last week that returning too soon could bring on a stress fracture. So team is making sure he's ready.
Would've been nice to see Rubio back tonight against K-Love and the Cavs, but Wolves are being very careful with their franchise PG
Now if Ezeli hits a few more injury setbacks, they might have to re-think that. But at the moment, Ezeli is part of their playoff thinking.
Rubio will have missed 43 games with that severely injured ankle by the time he returns. Impossible to overstate how much he's been missed
Utah's Trey Burke has committed to his invite for NBA Skills Challenge at All-Star weekend, league sources tell RealGM. He's reigning champ.
Will GSWs look to add another back-up center? Probably not. From ownership down, this organization thinks very highly of Festus Ezeli.
Kendrick Perkins: “We know we’re going to get in the playoffs. There’s no if, ands or buts about it. We still have our eyes on a title"
Sources tell AP that Ricky Rubio will be on a minutes restriction until after the All-Star break to see how his ankle responds.
Jeez. I think Isaiah Whitehead's foot is fine
AP Sources: Ricky Rubio will return to the court for the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night against Dallas.
I grew up an Atlanta Hawks fan during the Doc Rivers years. They will let you down. Trust me.
Lakers recall Ryan Kelly after having D-Fenders assignment on Friday. Kelly will fly with Lakers + play for upcoming trip
While Exum was talking to reporters, Derrick Favors came up behind the scrum and raised up a shirt. http://t.co/sdRYLBFaAb
These are the kinds of texts you send your wife when you use Uber. http://t.co/OLoIMpiUya
Chris Bosh was the only player for the Heat to start in both games against Dallas this season. Two games, nine different starters.
Wheels up headed to Sweet Home Chicago! Go Bulls!
Have some crazy MCW stats coming up shortly.
The king, he hath spoken.
Maybe it's just b/c it's freezing, but today feels like a Saturday that should feature an NBA afternoon game. Every Saturday, really.
The Atlanta Hawks have the best record in the NBA. They are not the NBA's best team. There is a difference.
And here I thought Baalke was in control of the offense and York would stick to running the defense.
Jamie Bowie continues winning start to 2015 with 400m victory at Vienna Indoor Classic in 47.18 secs.
Temple is playing well today. Tulane, not so much. http://t.co/4SzDHlZgBA
Well, at least he can count. http://t.co/IhZHzYCQvQ
Said a few times, but Brook Lopez looks more like his 2012-13 self with each game. More dump-offs, drives w/nice touch
TWolves C Nikola Pekovic on team's Kevin Love video: “I’m hoping that doesn’t unleash the beast, and he goes for 40 and 20 or something.”
Leon Powe said Marshawn Lynch once did a 30 minute interview for a documentary on Powe, just doesn't like talking about himself.
Anyone have wireless headphone recommendations for working out?
Marco Belinelli (groin) questionable for tonight vs LAC. If he plays, would mark Spurs' first full squad game of the season.
Spurs Super Bowl shootaround update: Danny Green is rooting for Seattle, Boris Diaw for the commercials.
You can probably begin shoveling the dirt if St. John's doesn't find a way to beat Providence today.
Spencer Hawes has never gone scoreless in three consecutive games in his NBA career.
Spencer Hawes has gone scoreless in back-to-back games for the fourth time in his career and the first since March of his rookie season.
Both Beal and Temple said they think Wall will play tonight.
Ya'll must be sleep. This is srs bidness.
At that point, in any game where Payne and Muscala are inactive the entire 13-man roster will be shooting above 30% except Brand, 0 attempts
With Lavoy Allen out, Luis Scola will be back in the rotation. Shayne Whittington on active list.
If Thabo and Dennis climb above 30% and nobody drops below, the Hawks will have 11 rotation players shooting above that mark, plus Jenkins.
Dennis shot over 30% through season's first 19 games, dropped to 20% in December and has been gradually climbing ever since.
Somehow despite the horrid shooting for the last week, Pero Antic remains above 30% 3-point shooting. Thabo is above 29%. Dennis over 26%.
#Cavs at Wolves: Cavs gunning for 10th win in row; the night belongs to Kevin Love. clevelandcavaliersblog.blogspot.com/2015/01/game-4…
Congrats to Shakopee's Steffon Mitchell on his 1,000th point last night. He's a visitor of Northern Iowa's today. Nice game vs. Wichita St.
Wall here, in sweats and with smiles. Said he'd talk pregame. We'll see about that.
John Wall isn’t participating in shootaround. Garrett Temple is running with the first team.
Finally catching Boyhood on this flight to JFK. This soundtrack is nuts.
Bruce Pearl in visitors locker room in return to Tennessee. Noon. ESPN2. http://t.co/ykpXIpNI1N
The last time I can remember them giving a low blow to a former player was Allan Houston's first game back. He scored 1 pt in his return
Wouldn't expect any trolling of Josh Smith from the Palace. They're usually pretty classy about these things
Lavoy Allen is out tonight with a sore right knee.
THarris also thanked fans for their kind words & condolences after the death of his & CFrye's grandfather, Lt. Col. John Mulzac
Tobias Harris will be able to play tonight. He bruised his lower right quad on Thursday.
Still terrific writing and storytelling regarding Josh - there’s been a whole lot of negative about him so some sugar won’t hurt
Now that's a double whammy.
Danny Ferry shouldn't win Exec of the year. Most of his work was done 2 summers ago. But Hawks are his baby.
Knicks make the Lance Thomas signing for the rest of the season official.
Sir Lance Thomas officially signs his contract for rest of season. No strings for next season.
In transit to Washington so the Raptors blog will be delayed. Do your best to contain your disappointment, please.
Knicks have signed Lance Thomas for remainder of the season
Happens to all greats, but Fri one of few times looked like KG had nothing left. One point, 2 rbs, only 9 mins in which Amir dominated him.
Name to keep an eye on as we get closer to the deadline: Wolves Kevin Martin. Teams looking for guard depth may be willing to eat salary.
