Starting a channel featuring Mystery Science Theater-style commentary for NBA games. Statler & Waldorf give their thoughts from the balcony.
Hey Aldon Smith fans now furious at me: Some of us are allowed to note if he is playing well or not. It's not against the law.
Half-time at Staples Center as Bucks lead Clippers 52-50 on Prime Ticket. Clips try to climb back into it in 2nd half http://t.co/9nOSVzaLfi
Clippers trail Bucks, 52-50, at halftime but closed the second quarter with a nice energetic run.
Halftime: Bucks 52, Clippers 50. Chris Paul with game-high 13 points and 5 assists.
Clippers trail by two, 52-20 at the half.
HT: Bucks 52, Clippers 50. LA ends half on 7-0 run but Bucks played well in half. Can they go 3-1 on trip? They have a chance.
Halftime: Bucks 52, Clippers 50. CP leads all scorers with 13 points and five assists.
Mayo now has 3 fouls after that scramble play. Paul at line and makes 2.
I am definitely interested to see how Brewer and Shved fit in with Rockets. I will check in on them after practice tomorrow.
Utah State 2-for-8 from the line in the second half, including front end of two 1-and-1s. South Dakota State leads, 49-38 with 9:18 left.
Clips assistant Sam Cassell talking to Joey Crawford during timeout. Bet that was interesting.
Trevor Ariza on Atlanta: “They were doing anything the wanted to in the first half and it came back to bite us in the butt."
Considering the Clippers are playing 4 games in 5 days and next play at San Antonio and at Atlanta, this is close to a must-win.
Utah fans wanting to watch their runnin utes on ESPN2 are going to have to wait quite awhile
Dwight Howard: "I have total faith in our team and what we are trying to accomplish. We are going to have some rough patches."
Rockets coach Kevin McHale on the Rockets’ loss to Atlanta: “We had our chances."
Saw the band First in Space tonight. They were really good. I'm jealous.
49ers have 311 rushing yards, most since they rushed for 323 in the divisional-round playoff victory over Green Bay on Jan. 12, 2013.
Under 12: South Dakota State leading Utah State, 40-37, after owning a seven-point lead moments ago.
Joey Crawford called offensive foul on Griffin, his third, and Joey is hearing it from Staples crowd. "Joey, go home."
Great win for the Huskies. 4-0 this year at neutral sites. Hopefully there are more wins coming in March.
Rockets host Portland on Monday night. That will be a very big test. And a tough welcome for the new Rockets.
Jared Dudley is on the court for Milwaukee. 'Member him? Anyone?
Dwight Howard said the Rockets are having a tough stretch but need to stay together and keep battling.
Floyd Mayweather and his purse arriving fashionably late. http://t.co/abhmLAvTBg
Lavoy Allen offensive rebound and layup. Indy down 74-70
Teams are an identical 12 for 17 from the FT line
I said the name “Steve Kerr” and my wife goes, “It’s Curry,” pretty emphatically. Me explaining: “There’s a Steve Kerr and a Stephen Curry"
Matt Kemp on hand courtside to watch the San Diego, er, L.A. Clippers.
Seems about right. http://t.co/jBrMuWa5rI
Matt Kemp gets introduced as a Padres outfielder at the Clippers game and gets booed. http://t.co/WODKkaAfia
Carlisle: "We're one game in. Come back to me at All-Star break, and I'll tell you where we're at."
So the answer is no. Bucks now lead, 31-28.
Bucks have more points this evening than the Clippers. They are playing each other.
Clippers' second unit doing second unit things. Bucks now up, 31-28.
Carlisle on Monta Ellis: "He was the best player on the court tonight, without question."
Last night's game between DEN-LAC got chippy. Now we've got double technical fouls on Faried and West
End of one: Clippers 28, Bucks 24. Redick has 11 points for Clips and Giannis 7 for Bucks.
Heard some random boos. Is Justin Bieber here???
Shooting will be the problem with Rondo. Everyone knew that coming in. He was 3-of-11 with 6 pts tonight, and also had 7 reb. and 9 assists.
Carlisle: "I love Rondo."
Methinks that no call fired Lawson up...
Fun fact: Babies born five days ago have never experienced a Spurs win in their lifetime.
SEE INSTRUCTIONS Operate This Machine With Caution Operate This Machine With Care This Machine Starts Revolutions This Machine is Unaware
Big Baby looks, well BIG.
One last thought on All-Star voting: If Derrick Rose gets voted in, that's going to throw a major wrench in the works.
One stop for the upset. I'll take it.
Jared Dudley, who has made three of four shots, unrecognizable to Clippers fans.
For those who missed it today, ZBO had a clean MRI & is listed as questionable for Sunday. Knee is swollen. TA (eye) also still questionable
2 items I'm following - Mavericks without Chandler on floor and Chandler's minutes played. Tonight Mavericks -6 without Tyson Tyson 36 mins
So if you're counting, and I know you are, that's 7 technical fouls called here at the PC in the last two games
Crabtree looked like he was running OK on that play--now on sidelines. So I don't know what's going on there. Maybe a minor injury.
And because we can no longer go a game w/o a tech, Indiana coach Frank Vogel just picked one up
Mozgov tip-n dunk and Frank Vogel picks up his second 4th Q technical foul in as many games. DEN now up 65-60
Second unit in for Clippers, who hold a 22-19 lead. Can they hold the lead this time?
The Spurs have had two losing streaks of 4+ games in the last four seasons. The Knicks have had three 4+ game losing streaks this season.
BTW, Harden said his hamstring tightened up but that he felt okay after the game. Will keep an eye on it next few days.
Mozgov blocks Hibbert and leads to Arron Afflalo's bucket. Tied game at 60
Doc Rivers called the Bucks "this year's Phoenix." They may be even more impressive because they don't have Phoenix's talent.
Monty on facing OKC: "I know we're much better than we played tonight. We've got to prove it tomorrow."
Look at how at ease this Niners team is without any pressure whatsoever. sigh...
No Parker, Duncan, Leonard, Ginobli, Green or Splitter for the Spurs
That's 279 yards rushing for the 49ers so far. That's a lot--previous season high was 218 vs. Philly.
Lil Monta gonna inherit it all
Great finish in Dallas, as the Mavs got a big win over the Spurs. Rondo fills a missing piece. Really like the Mavs' core.
I almost didn't recognize O.J. Mayo with the new hairdo. He's now far removed from the days when he called me "Mr. Bolch."
Redick with another fast start, has 11 points in the first seven minutes. Clippers gonna win now
aw Monta's kid
The Spurs dropped their fourth consecutive game for the first time since March 2011.
Final: Mavs 99, short-handed Spurs 93. Monta Ellis scores 11 of his season-high tying 38 in final 3:31. Rajon Rondo line: 6-7-9.
Rondo had a really Rondo game. I still don't know if he fits in Dallas. It's going to be fascinating to see it unfold.
Monta Ellis is amazing and he isn't even an all-star in the West. He is just great. Dominating the game. Unguardable. Too quick
Monta. Ellis. What a 4th quarter takeover!!
J.J. Redick up to 11 points already for Clippers. Usually a good sign when he's hot early.
lol I forgot Richard Jefferson was on the Mavs
Ellis, again. Up to 36 points, has scored 11 of Dallas' last 13. Totally dominating the stretch run.
Overheard near press row. Denver fan: "C'mon, Nuggets. This is the Pacers." He then turns to me & says, "I thought this was a sure thing."
Kaepernick of 2012... wow.
Ellis has only one thing: all.
Monta ties his season high with 38 pts.
Halftime: Utah State and South Dakota State are tied, 28-28. Seven players have scored for the Aggies, who are 0-for-7 on three-pointers.
Monta Ellis is going off
List of things Monta Ellis doesn't have:
Oh, right, the Spurs are sitting their four best players.
if Rondo touches the ball I think SA should foul him. I was hoping for Hack-a-Rondo
I feel rather sheepish about having criticized Kyle Korver ... ever.
Monta Ellis, the league's best clutch scorer this season, has 9 of his 36 points in the last 2:02.
I'm watching Dallas vs SA on League Pass. Spurs B Team of course. Yet both of these teams are playing at a level the Cavs haven't shown.
Only took the Mavericks 46 plus minutes, at home, but they just might have put the Spurs down for good. Up 4, 1:29 left.
Rondo-Monta is the real dual-point guard lineup.
Hibbert back in to start the 4th Q and Rudez starts with a 3-pointer. When his name is announced in arena, fan next to me says: "Who?"
Great hustle by Parsons to be there for that putback.
Obviously Rondo misses a point-blank layup. Got the Kobe assist tho
Redick is hot with 8 points in a row for Clips, including pair of 3s.
Ellis just taking over.
Can we sub out Jeff Triplette before he collapses from the stress of trying to make these calls?
J.J. Redick scored 25 points against his former team last week and is already off to a hot start with eight points in first 5 1/2 minutes.
Parsons has his 1st double double of the season (14-10).
For the record, NBA TV gave Hawks huge props, had an extended interview with Millsap.
Denver's got jokes. A crowd in the stands chants "We Want Tacos!" Fans get em if team scores 110 points... It's a 55-55 game after 3rd Q
It's crunch time, in case you couldn't tell by Monta Ellis' back-to-back buckets.
Ellis ties 'er up with the corner 3.
Monta have it all
Belinelli converts the three-point play, Spurs up 89-86 with less than 4 mins left.
Chop block on Gore.
O'Bryant with 2 quick fouls guarding Blake and goes to bench. Dudley enters.
Great play by Vernon Davis... it's coming back though.
Courtney Lee was amazed by Rajon Rondo early on. Lee wouldn't think he was open, then Rondo would hit him with perfect pass he didn't expect
Jared Dudley checks in and it doesn't take DeAndre Jordan long to talk trash to his former teammate.
Jimmer Fredette should watch J.J. Redick's constant movement for a template of the player he should try to become.
No Chris Copeland sighting in this one so far...
You could probably put the Sixers in Spurs uniforms & they would play a bunch of nail-biters against the top teams in the West.
Baked ziti, with garlic bread
Dumb foul by Dirk.
Dirk backing down some hapless defender for a foul-line turnaround is one of my favorite go-to moves of all time.
By the way if you're doing anything else, turn on Mavs-Spurs.
David West isn't messing around when he commits a foul. You're gonna feel that.
Rick Carlisle keeps telling Dirk to calm down. The big German is begging for a T.
Rondo ties it up at 84 with a...jumper?
Rajon Rondo jump shots fall in Dallas.
What r Kings waiting for? What's delay hiring Mark Jackson? The lone coach who makes sense. Indictment by Lacob, Malone advocate, seals deal
Total shit call.
McHale says Rockets defense was really poor in first half.
Great weakside steal by Harris. Negates likely bucket for BAYNES, Mavs convert at the other end to climb within 2. 5:21 left...
Matt Kemp, former Dodger and now a Padre, is courtside for Bucks-Clippers.
Is there anything more desperate than wildly waving at the cheerleaders who run to the tunnel? C'mon, fellas. Don't obey the thirst.
THE HAWKS AND THE ROCKETS ARE NOW BOTH 19-7
McHale: "Our defense was very poor in the first half. We weren't down in a stance. We weren't ready to play."
Leaving Manu and Duncan home paying off in this way: Spurs are 23 of 23 from foul line.
Whole lot of solar deprivation between those two.
Many of Rajon Rondo's former teammates say it takes awhile to get used to his passes. They catch players off guard. Mavs need time to jell.
Bonner, BAYNES are on my TV at the same time, nearly blinding me.
David West imitating Gallinari's knee kick as he drove to the rim & scored. But refs still give foul to S. Hill. 3 point play & DEN up 51-47
DeAndre Jordan stands beneath the basket and pulls the net with both hands every time they project these funky intro graphics on the court.
I'm only ever watching mavs games from now on
Mavs desperately trying to create quicker tempo here
Matt Kemp is courtside at tonight's Clippers-Bucks game. http://t.co/i2YXZ1PNCQ
Clippers don't have a mascot, so I think my computer is safe tonight.
Ayres with a little Sean Elliott Memorial Day Miracle tippy-toeing there on the restricted circle to draw the charge.
If Clippers-Bucks goes to overtime, I say decide it by a game of one-on-one between Jason Kidd and Lawrence Frank.
No way refs aren't gong to call that charge on Chandler after tee-ing up Pop for arguing a charge call on Daye
Under 8: Utah State leads South Dakota State, 20-15. David Collette six points.
Rondo mid-range rolls out, and he's 2 for 9
Solomon Hill's commitment to the Euro Step this season has been both admirable and puzzling.
Harden's 14 assists tonight are a career high. He has had 13 twice.
Mavs used to go with 3 guards a lot during the Jason Kidd days. Rolling with it now: Devin Harris, Monta Ellis, Rajon Rondo.
Miles and S. Hill joining David West in the scoring column. Two have combined for 8 points this quarter.
Mavs are gonna get their first lead since the 1Q on a technical foul shot. Pop probably wants that one back.
Fourth quarter fouls- Rockets 14, Hawks 5
Not sure what Pop is upset about. Sure, baseline official was going to call a block before being overruled. But that was a clear charge.
Pop must've said a bunch of big ole meanie stuff to that ref. Technical free throw after the break.
Big Atlanta lead in the first half came back to haunt Rockets tonight.
Rondo missed 2 jumpers for the lead. Now there's a tech on Pop.
Rondo gets ball at the elbow, Ayres can't back off fast enough. And...clank.
Rondo just took his fourth charge.
Make that four charges drawn by Rajon Rondo tonight.
This has not been the game to revel in the beauty of the center position. Denver's Timofey Mozgov with just 2 points … but 3 blocks
Oof, Dallas absolutely dissects Spurs zone, with the coup de grace coming on Rondo's bounce pass to Chandler for the stuff. Tie game.
Think about 19-7 with 3 straight wins over the Bulls, Cavs and Rockets and then consider two of those came without Jeff Teague
How 'bout this lineup to start the 4th: Diaw, Bonner, BAYNES, Joseph, Daye.
The Hawks deserve an All-Star. I'm not sure Teague will make it because Irving, Wall and Lowry are ahead of him, but he should be No. 4.
This is the trophy Memphis plays for Monday http://t.co/khxlJwglRL
Under 12: Utah State leads South Dakota State, 13-7. Jackrabbits started 1 of 8 from the field.
How does 19-7 sound everyone?
Tom McMillan, Rhodes Scholar, was my dude back in the Omni days. Grats on breaking the free throw streak Kyle Korver.
Rondo: 4 points, 7 assists, 3 turnovers in 22 minutes.
Hibbert: 14 mins, 0 points (0 for 3), 3 rebounds, 4 fouls. Turning into a redux of his Jan. 25 game here. Very ineffective w/ foul trouble
I keep waiting for the Hawks to turn into the Hawks, and maybe they won't this time?
BALL. GAME! Kyle scores 22 to keep the good times rolling in a 104-97 win over the Rockets! http://t.co/Xb4ncNqf7V
Yeah, Rockets got a few bad calls, especially the non-push on Dwight. But Hawks shot 51.4 %. Rockets don't win when Rockets don't defend.
Hey guys, the weak schedule argument doesn't hold water anymore
Correction: Hibbert is scoreless (I was looking at Stuckey's points).
I’m sitting right where the refs walk off the court. To put it lightly, people were not kind as they were leaving.
Now, Hibbert draws a fourth foul on an offensive foul in the post. He sits at 8 min mark, with 4 points and 0-3 from field
Hawks beat Rockets 104-97.
NEW RECORD! Kyle's 49th straight made free throw is a new franchise high.
Two big 3s late in 3rd by Devin Harris, he has 13 off bench. Monta has 25. Spurs lead Mavs 77-75 after 3 on TXA21
Big win for the Hawks at Toyota Center.
FINAL: Hawks 104, Rockets 97. Offense still struggling, but defense followed tonight. Tony Brothers led Atlanta with 21 pts, 14 assists.
That is 49 consecutive free throws made for Korver which is a new team record
Devin Harris, J.J. Barea…guys are gonna feast weak side off of Rondo/Ellis/Dirk defensive overloads.
I mean, if you had told the Mavs before the game they'd be within 2 of the defending NBA champions heading to the 4Q, they'd take it, right?
There's the momentum...thanks Devin...huge 4th coming up
Korver headed back to the line with a chance to break the team record
End 3Q: Short-handed Spurs 77, Mavs 75. Rajon Rondo 4 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists. Monta Ellis 25 points, 1 assist.
Austin, er, San Antonio Spurs up 77-75 through 3 against Rajon Rondo and the Dallas Mavericks.
Korver ties team record of 47 straight free throws made
