Shandel Richardson

I don't think Chris Bosh will ever stop referring to Ennis as "rook."

KC Johnson

Rose putting on a show for second straight exhibition.

Tim Kawakami

That was your lickety-split 6-pitch inning for Hudson. Cruising.

Shandel Richardson

Thought Wade was done when he returned from halftime wearing some pillow-sized bandages on knees.

Eric Smith

Q4 starts in Montreal with the #Raptors leading the #Knicks 63-57

Ryan Wolstat

The Knicks ran the Isosceles Triangle in the third quarter. The result was 16% shooting (3-for-19).

Jason Jones

Malone: "This is regular season game No. 1. We've had 6 preseason games and we haven't played well in those games." #NBAKings

Joe Cowley

Rose with 22 after that 3.

KC Johnson

Rose flashed 3 fingers after that 3-pointer as he ran downcourt. Atypical public swagger for him.

Paul Coro

Hayward went for another and-1 jam. It turned more into a layup on Green but it was still a 3-point play. Not a good final D tune-up so far.

Chris Herring

Not sure if its being explained on TV, but Fisher & Melo were both upset, bc 24-sec clock was still intact as 3Q expired. It confused Melo

Sam Smith

Rose with spectacular start to 2nd half basically scoring or making play on every score in 13-5 opening.

Tony Jones

Jazz lead 27-19 with 2:46 remaining in the first quarter

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza chatted with Pop during time out. Kid official said he needed to go back toward Rockets bench area until horn. Lighten up, Francis.

Doug Smith

Raptors up 63-57 on Knicks after 3; trying to find scissors to use to cut down nets when pre-season ends

Derek Bodner

It's absolutely critical to know that your manager hunts with Jeff Foxworthy.

Chip Crain

Looking forward to seeing the second half, especially the bench play

Tony Jones

Hayward doing work in this first quarter. getting to the rim at will

Sam Smith

Timberwolves with 5 points in first 5 minutes of second half after 64-point first half. Someone talked defense at halftime.

Tony Jones

Hayward drives baseline, dunks on Alex Len...gets the foul. Added strength on display

Jason Jones

No Kobe, Boozer or Jordan Hill for the Lakers.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors held the Knicks to 3/19 shooting in the third quarter, besting them 14-7 on the boards and outscoring them 25-11. They lead 63-57

Mark Medina

Kobe was asked where Nash will rank among point guards in history, Kobe said, "That's ESPN's job to rank people."

Aaron Falk

Jazz up 24-15 as Hood, Novak and Gobert check in. Extra minutes to go around at the 4 & 5 with Favors out tonight.

Jeff McDonald

Pop called a timeout there and was pretty animated. Preseason's almost over, I think.

Marcus Thompson

This was the biggest concern for me: can Giants bats produce under pressure of knowing they have to be up after 6 innings

Earl K. Sneed

INSTANT ANALYSIS: @Dallas Mavericks rout Magic in Jameer Nelson's return to finish preseason play at 4-4 mavs.com/preseason-game…

Paul Coro

Hayward used a screen to get by Green, dribbled around Tolliver and dunked through Len's foul. Gulp. Utah 24-15, 4:27 in 1st.

Marcus Thompson

Royals need six more outs from Guthrie before turning it over to their three-headed bullpen monster

Jeff McDonald

Belinelli screwed up something on defense. Pop pulled him two minutes in and chewed him out all the way to his seat.

Chris Herring

I don't even know what this quarter is from the Knicks. It's not a triangle, though.

Ryan Wolstat

Can you have the sophomore jinx in the pre-season? Because Timmy Jr. looks turrible

Tim Kawakami

Guthrie goes through Panik, Posey, Sandoval in 12 pitches. On to the 5th.

Aaron Falk

The Suns will test of the Jazz's squad's transition D. So far Utah has allowed 1 fast-break point. Transition free throws, man. Every time.

Paul Coro

Utah has not scored on 3 of their first 12 trips and those were even pretty good chances. Coaches say the Jazz has looked good in preseason.

Dwain Price

Jameer is on the court shanking hands and talking to some of his former Magic teammates.

David Locke

Quin Snyder displeased with the lack of ball movement and 1 on 1 in post despite 19-12 lead calls timeout.

Lang Greene

Right move for Blatt to start Anderson Varejao over Tristan Thompson. Vet guy. Also a LeBron favorite. Can't risk early tension as rook HC

Dwain Price

It's a final: #Mavs 117, #Magic 92. Mavs shot 55.1% on FGs and also made 12-of-30 3's.

Earl K. Sneed

FINAL: @Dallas Mavericks 117; Magic 92; 24 pts for Parsons, 16 pts for Dirk & 13 pts for Aminu. 4 pts, 4 rebs & 7 assists for Nelson. #DALatORL

Josh Lewenberg

Well then RT @Ryan Wolstat The Raptors have never lost to the Knicks in the pre-season (8-0).

Sean Highkin

The best-case scenario is that the Royals win the next three games so the World Series doesn't overlap with the start of the NBA season.

Mike Finger

"You were here when we clinched!" he says, referring to the Royals. "You must be good luck!" Guess he doesn't know which program I cover.

Alan Hahn

That was communicated. RT @KEGR123: @Alan Hahn can't fall into trap of because your down just jacking shots... Can't have system break down

Jeff McDonald

The Spurs assisted on all but one of their first-half baskets. Unfortunately, that's 10 assists on only 11 field goals.

Ryan Wolstat

The Raptors have never lost to the Knicks in the pre-season (8-0).

Earl K. Sneed

Did Charlie V. just dunk?! haha #DALatORL

Tony Jones

Suns playing with no energy early, so far...and Enes Kanter is giving Miles Plumlee that work

Alan Hahn

Rome wasn't built in a day. Gotta pour a foundation first. RT @cmsantos1979: @Alan Hahn too bad he can't increase their talent level.

Christopher A. Vito

Springfield and Marple Newtown are trading personal fouls like it's going out of style. Game drags on. Cougars lead, 28-7, in 4Q

Al Iannazzone

The Triangle, or whatever the Knicks are trying to run, has produced six points in 10 third-quarter minutes.

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis has been Bernard James' biggest cheerleader on the bench, especially after Sarge's thunderous slam. #DALatORL

Paul Coro

Markieff and Plumlee each picked up two fouls in the game's first 4:33. Frontcourt is now Len, Tolliver and Green. Utah 15-7.

Sam Smith

With Bulls tied at 64 at half starting second half with Freddie Lewis, Joe Caldwell, Marvin Barnes, Fly Williams and Gus Gerard

Eric Smith

Ladies (and normal, open-minded men), if you haven't seen this...enjoy! vimeo.com/109827317?from… - Great work by the @FCKH8 folks.

Chip Crain

Where's Beno?!? Speculation rises.... We miss you @Beno Udrih http://t.co/Xnki6lnR0E

Alan Hahn

That timeout was strictly a scolding by Fisher. He never even used the dry erase board. Just got into his players.

Rusty Simmons

Steve Kerr said he'll approach tonight's preseason finale like a dress rehearsal for next week.

John Reid

Former LSU, NBA player Randy Livingston taking part in Saturday's gun buyback program in New Orleans s.nola.com/gyNR3LI via @nolanews

Josh Lewenberg

Fisher not happy, wants to talk it over. Knicks losing their cool & I think I just caught a rare in-game Casey smirk. Raps on 21-3 run/up 10

Tim Kawakami

Relatively important half-inning here, might be last time SFG middle-order hits before KC gets Herrera-Davis-Holland going.

Paul Coro

The #Suns are underway at Utah. No TV in PHX, unless you find the Utah feed. It's on radio in PHX with Al McCoy and @SunsTK. Utah 13-7.

Marcus Thompson

Hudson cruised through the Royals best hitters the second time through

Earl K. Sneed

2:32 left to play and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 109-89 with their reserves in the game. Led by as many as 29. #DALatORL

Chris Herring

Only in the third quarter, but Knicks have four technical fouls: Fisher, Stoudemire, JR Smith and Pablo Prigioni.

Mike Finger

There are few honors quite as sad as being recognized as a regular by the barkeep at an airport Marriott.

Al Iannazzone

Prigioni, Stoudemire, J.R. and Fisher have been called for technicals thus far.

Frank Isola

Amid reports of a NY Daily News/Post merger, Berman of the Post tweets: "Amare's floater wasn't t-riangle just t-alent." I think I'm safe.

Jerry Zgoda

I have nothing to base this on but intuition & common sense, but I predict Wolves sign Ricky to a 4-yr deal worth $50-52M by Friday

Dwain Price

Devin Harris ( 7 pts, 7 assists), Jefferson (6 pts) and Crowder (0 pts) are also done for the night.

Surya Fernandez

Heat up 54-48 Grizzlies at the half with Wade (16 points, 7-8 FGs) and Bosh (13 points, 6-10 FGs) leading the way.

Eric Smith

Can't spell montreal without a "T"

Ryan Wolstat

Prigioni gets a technical. All of the technical fouls are happening!

Dwain Price

Parsons (24 pts), Dirk (16 pts), Aminu (13 pts), Ellis (11 pts), Tyson (8 pts, 5 reb), Jameer (4 pts, 7 assists) are done for the night.

Tony Jones

Jazz lead 10-6 early over the Suns

Chip Crain

At the half 54-48 Wade with 16, ZBo has 12 to lead the Grizz. Heat shooting 60% to the Grizz 43%

Ailene Voisin

Outfield defense outstanding by both clubs. Pence just stole a triple from Lorenzo Cain with running catch in right

Brian Mahoney

Yes, Knicks will have Calderon back for the opener, but struggling to picture a way they can break 90 if the Bulls play their usual D.

Kerry Eggers

Cal spends $321 mil to renovate its field, then plays Oregon at Levi's Stadium. Odd decision by somebody

Josh Lewenberg

Angry/engaged JV > other versions. 9pts/3reb in 3rdQ after 2pts/0reb in 1st half. Think message was received. Credit Casey for sending it

Brad Rock

I've figured out BYU's problem: Bronco has to lose the Wal-Mart hat. #ByuatBSU #BYUFOOTBALL

Robert Morales

Jordan Farmar (back) will play tonight for Clippers #clippers

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have led the league in turnovers forced per game this preseason. The Spurs had 13 in the first half tonight.

Alan Hahn

And no, this isn't about the big lineup being slow in transition. It's about wing players being slow and perimeter defense being poor.

Tommy Beer

I have a 2 tickets to the Knicks open practice at MSG on Sunday afternoon at MSG. I'll give 'em away via a trivia contest tomorrow morning.

Steve Popper

I'm not sure what shape J.R. is playing now.

Shandel Richardson

Dwyane Wade vs. Tayshaun Prince. Just had a flashback to 2005

Josh Newman

Final: No. 1 Red Bank Catholic 35, No. 2 Manalapan 14. That's 39 straight vs. the Shore for RBC in a nice and tidy two hours, 10 minutes

Robert Morales

Jamal Crawford out for Clippers, LaMarcus Aldridge out for Blazers. Nothing serious, both will be ready opening night #clippers #Blazers

Alan Hahn

Preseason #3QofDoom. Raps turned up the D, #Knicks hurt by some guys jogging in transition.

Chris Herring

These Amare-at-the-5 lineups, man... Just say no.

Tim Kawakami

Hudson has faced 11 Royals, given up 2 hits, thrown 47 pitches. Guthrie has faced 10 Giants, given up 2 hits, thrown 47 pitches. 1-0 KC.

Ben Bolch

Jordan Farmar back for Clippers.

Brad Rock

That's what they get for playing on 60s carpet. #BYUatBSU

Jonathan Feigen

Parker played 15 mins, Duncan 13 in 1st half. Not sure we'll see a ton of them in second half. Rockets up 17 with Harden 2 of 9 for just 5.

Melissa Rohlin

Jamal Crawford is sitting tonight bc of hamstring soreness. Jordan Farmar is available to play.

Chip Crain

DWade and Bosh really look focused and this is pre-season.

Mark Medina

Kings guard Ramon Sessions strongly disputes he opted out with Lakers because of Kobe. Said he wanted long term security with the Lakers

Ben Bolch

LaMarcus Aldridge out for Trail Blazers, Jamal Crawford out for Clippers. Both expected to be ready for opener.

Josh Lewenberg

17-2 run after another DeRozan slam. MTL is loving it. Raps up 55-48

Chip Crain

Watching Vince and Tay run the court on that play was crazy, like Grumpy Old Men running down the road

Jonah Ballow

Melo got called for the push-off but I love that option instead of the flash to the elbow, he cuts back door for the oop.

Earl K. Sneed

Mekel, Ledo, Crowder, Aminu & Sarge now on the floor for the @Dallas Mavericks, leading by as many as 29. #DALatORL

Doug Smith

#Raptors on a 17-2 run. Who do they think they are, Maccabi Haifa?

Ethan J. Skolnick

Dwyane Wade is 18 of 25 over the past two games. Regular season ready, it appears.

Jonathan Feigen

Since McHale took TO less than 4 minutes into the game, Spurs have gone 7 of 24 for 21 points over 20 mins. No FGs in final 6 1/2 of half.

Dwain Price

Carlisle is really emptying his bench now. Sarge, Ledo and Mekel are in.

Eric Smith

17-2 #Raptors run. up 7 ... 7:15 to go in Q3

Ira Winderman

James Ennis looked a lot better against third- and fourth-string talent earlier in the preseason. It's why expectations have to be tempered.

Chip Crain

Vince with a hard foul on Wade

Ryan Wolstat

Ex-Raptor Haywoode Workman is getting an earful from Raptors tonight. Letting them play. JV latest. DeRozan wanted and-one too

Al Iannazzone

Knicks gave up 14 points the whole second quarter. They've allowed 15 in the first 4:06 of the third.

Shandel Richardson

Zach Randolph is hustling out there like it's the NBA Finals

Jeff McDonald

Spurs not defending poorly, but manage zero field goals over final 6:29 of first half. Trail 49-32 at break.

David Hardisty

49-32 Rockets over Spurs at half. Beverley-Ariza combo outstanding tonight. Excited about what those two will do for perimeter D this year.

Chip Crain

VC just got the offensive call for a little push in Bosh's back,

Joe Cowley

McDermott keeps playing like that around the rim, the nickname "Billy Ho'' isn't far off.

Jonathan Feigen

Happy for Isaiah Canaan. Had to be a tough preseason, but he's showed something these past few games.

Ryan Wolstat

Correction, 10-2 run. Now 13-2 run.

Dwain Price

Matchups to watch Tuesday: Parker/Jameer, Splitter/Tyson, Duncan/Dirk. Kawhi Leonard (eye infection) could miss this game.

Josh Lewenberg

We've seen former Raptor Haywoode Workman and the rest of the officiating crew correct a few calls this evening. Pre-season for refs too

Ryan Wolstat

Rubio scores on layup to end 1st half, has 12 points and 4 assists in 14 minutes and game is tied at 64 at intermission

Jeff Goodman

Secret Scrimmages get started tonight with Davidson at Texas. Here's the complete list: insider.espn.go.com/blog/jeff-good…

Joe Cowley

Rubio shouldn't be taking Rose to the rack as much as he has. 64-64 at the half. Steam coming from Thibs' head.

Chip Crain

Will catch the replay, looked like ZBo said "We Don't Bluff" seriously, that will be on a video clip soon!

Gary Lee

Before tonight’s game against the Kings, Kobe Bryant says Steve Nash being out for the season isn’t an age thing. lakersnation.com/kobe-bryant-sa…

Chris Herring

Knicks transition defense has gotten shredded a few times here tonight.

Chip Crain

ZBo got a T after telling Williams we don't bluff, double technical, ZBo didn't like that at all, wasn't having it

Trey Kerby

Every ad would be better with @AndrewWK "Party Hard" as the soundtrack.

Christopher A. Vito

Marple Newtown WR Carmen Christiana & QB Marcus Weathers connect for an 11-yd TD. Springfield leads, 28-7, w/ 10:14 left in 4Q @DelcoSports

Jeff McDonald

Dwight Howard is out, James Harden is 2 for 9 and the Spurs are down by 13.

Lang Greene

Sam Smith

Bulls leading 62-58 with about 90 seconds left in half. Appears it's Paul Westhead coaching wearing a Thibs mask

Chris Herring

Lmao! RT @Bill Oram: Asked where Steve Nash will rank among point guards in history, Kobe said, "That's ESPN's job to rank people."

Jonathan Feigen

Aaron Baynes caught Harden with a hard right to the side of his head on a screen. Play on.

Rusty Simmons

Festus Ezeli was on a 12-minute limit Tuesday. He might get extended a little bit tonight.

Joe Cowley

Tim Kawakami

Almost something like a fist pump by Posey there after catching strike 3.

Earl K. Sneed

Back-to-back threes from Aminu and Harris, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 96-71 with 8:39 remaining. #DALatORL

Ryan Wolstat

10-0 run for Raptors out of break capped by DeRozan dunk forces Knicks’ Fisher to call timeout.

Jason Jackson

hey … um, @Dwyane Wade hasn’t missed a shot in six tries tonight ….has looked better as the preseason has progressed #thatsagoodthing

Josh Newman

Tommy Spernal goes 18 yards between the tackles to add the icing. RBC leads, 35-7, with 4:31 left

Gary Lee

In the Lakers’ final preseason game, they look to finalize their roster. Check out our preview via @JosephMCrevier. lakersnation.com/lakers-vs-king…

Shandel Richardson

Of course, we'll have to see how that translates to the regular season.

Dwain Price

Mavs up 96-71 with 8:40 left after that 3 by Devin.

Earl K. Sneed

ANOTHER three for Aminu. He's 3-of-4 from deep. Not bad for a so-called defensive specialist, huh?

Rusty Simmons

Steve Kerr said the Warriors will start Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Lee and Bogut.

Shandel Richardson

Just looks like Wade is doing a better job of pacing himself this year.

Dwain Price

Aminu just made his 3rd 3. He's 3-of-4 from downtown. Carlisle has been working with him on his triples.

Chip Crain

This Heat team is playing with a chip on its shoulder. They look like they want to prove they are still good without LeBron.

Jonathan Feigen

Game began with Spurs moving ball, getting open looks as if back in Game 5. Since then, Rockets have really stepped up D. Best it's looked.

Lang Greene

As a late first round pick, Marquis Teague entered NBA on vet laden team. Tough to get minutes. Then traded to Brooklyn ... another vet crew

Tim Kawakami

That would've gotten through KC's fast infield, no question.

Shandel Richardson

Another solid start for Wade.

Chip Crain

Miami with 24 PTS in the paint, an area the Grizz usually own

Dan Woike

The Spurs are the best team in the West. There's no doubt about it. - Doc Rivers

Jonah Ballow

Earl K. Sneed

Aminu with his best game in my opinion of the preseason. He has 10 pts on 4-of-6 shooting off the bench. #DALatORL

Josh Lewenberg

JV back on the floor to begin 2nd half after spending most of 1st on bench. Goes straight to offensive glass for a putback on 1st possession

Josh Newman

This will go down as a thorough, but not dominant RBC win. Manalapan has not played poorly by any stretch, but RBC is simply better

Lang Greene

This will be a great opportunity for Marquis Teague to consistently get run in Philly, especially w/ Carter-Williams on the shelf

Jonah Ballow

Melo buries a shot coming out of the half. Man, he is ready to go.

Sam Smith

Nice sequence for McDermott: Shot not going down, so drives for a score, chases down miss and finds Rose for baseline floater.

Chip Crain

56% FG for Mia and 40% for Grizz, there's the difference so far in this game

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead after the 3rd period 86-66. Parsons has 24 pts on 8-of-13 shooting, Dirk has 16 on 5-of-10 shots, Monta has 11 on 5-of-8 shots.

Mavs are ahead 72-56 with 4:40 left in the 3rd.

Earl K. Sneed

Looks like Carlisle is slowing starting to pull his starters now. Dirk and Tyson might be done for the night. #DALatORL

Dwain Price

Parsons lead the #Mavs with 18 pts on 5-of-9 shots. He also is 2-of-4 from 3.

Sam Smith

Snell's getting his shots up this game: Three threes in first two minutes of 2nd qtr. Made 2

Dwain Price

Jefferson gets in the game for the 1st time.

Alan Hahn

Halftime on @MSGNetworks with @BillPidto and ME in @Wally Szcerzbiak’s chair for the night. #Knicks

Josh Lewenberg

Knicks up on Raptors 46-38 at intermission in MTL. Halftime coverage coming up on @TSN1050Radio

Jeff Goodman

Rice just picked up a commitment from Marquez Letcher-Ellis from Montverde Academy, source told ESPN.

Ryan Wolstat

Knicks lead 46-38 at the half. Melo with 17 DeRozan with nine.

Dwain Price

It's the second made 3 this quarter for Parsons, who completes the 3-pt play by making the FT.

Scott Cacciola

I know it's preseason, but that was a really nice half for the Knicks.

Doug Smith

Knicks 46, Raptors 38 at half; only 24 minutes of the pre-season left. Getting all misty here

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons converts the four-point play. @Dallas Mavericks lead 70-54 with 6:06 left in the 3rd. #DALatORL

Marcus Thompson

Two on, none out … and the Royals don't score. Major thwart job by Hudson, Giants. Capped with a double-play on a Camaro named Dyson

Ryan Wolstat

DeRozan lucky not to get a T. Waved arms at ref and swore.

Joe Cowley

How soft is A. Bennett? Mirotic just tossed him down to the ground.

Dwain Price

Parsons stays in the game and will shoot his FT.

Josh Robbins

Ridnour is walking off the court gingerly and will go to the Magic's locker room.

Joel Brigham

Anthony Bennett is a nice kid. Had a great chat pre-game but couldn't make any "Cold Minnesota" jokes b/c, ya know, he's FROM Canada.

Dwain Price

Parsons appears to be fine. Ridnour is hurt, too.

Chip Crain

Jordan Adams in, I won't bore you how long his wingspan is for his height. Then he makes a play using his "long" arms, see it's relevant

Joe Cowley

Must kill Thibs to be watching Dieng - the player he really wanted in the draft two years ago.

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons nods his head to Carlisle and it looks like he's going to be ok. But Luke Ridnour is still down for the Magic. #DALatORL

Josh Robbins

Luke Ridnour appeared to hurt his right knee as he defended a 3-point try.

Josh Newman

Nick Cella breaks and bounces off at least four tackles and walks in from 37 yards out to give RBC a 28-7 lead. Tough running there.

Tim Kawakami

I almost typed that the Giants weren't going to double up Dyson, right before they did.

Dwain Price

Parsons is down!! And up. He hit a 3 and was crashed into by Luke Rudnour. Parsons is walking it up. Gently.

Chip Crain

Just for those who haven't seen, @Mike Conley has gone back to last years early season hair style. These are the details people want!

Joe Cowley

Whenever Budinger shoots my finger twitches as if it is holding down the square button.

Frank Isola

I was forced, against my will, to do this. youtube.com/watch?v=l2JzEJ…

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons hits a three but dude flew into his knee. He's trying to walk it off. #DALatORL

Tim Kawakami

That looked like Burrell circa 2010. All that matters is that it was caught, of course.

Ryan Wolstat

After good start, DeRozan has struggled to beat New York defence. Shumpert bottling him up.

Arash Markazi

Why is Julius Randle not staring? Good question. Byron Scott isn't ready to lean on the rookies yet.

Christopher A. Vito

Springfield WR Quideer Wimes hauls in an 11-yd, corner-route lob from QB Brian Allen for TD. Cougars lead Marple Newtown 13-0. @DelcoSports

Jeff McDonald

Ginobili still can't throw it in the ocean, but he's getting where he wants to go on the court so far. Good sign.

Chip Crain

Napier hits a 22 footer and looks smooth in this game, he is having a nice preseason averaging 10.9 a game

Jenny Dial Creech

This is the first time in the preseason that we have seen Isaiah Canaan before Ish Smith.

Chris Herring

Melo averaging 27.3 points per 36 minutes so far this preseason. Averaged 25.5 pts per 36 minutes during the last regular season.

Josh Lewenberg

Worth noting: No JV since midway through 1stQ. Casey was not pleased with his effort on the glass, giving up 3 offensive boards to Dalembert

Jonah Ballow

Dalembert chatting with Dikembe courtside during free throws. I assume it’s about shot blocking.

Chip Crain

Leuer called for a charge and well the ball was bouncing everywhere, kind of funny to watch

Arash Markazi

Kobe just arrived to the locker room. He's not playing but he's fine.

Joe Cowley

Benny Bowling made the trip from the UC. Joy.

Jonathan Feigen

Now this is different. Isaiah Canaan starts the second quarter at the point.

Josh Newman

Consecutive sacks of Dan Anerella, including Doug Zockell on fourth down, ends the Manalapan threat. RBC takes over at its own 36

Joe Cowley

Bulls suddenly becoming the Bears ... can't stop anyone.

Josh Lewenberg

Melo channelling KG, having fun w/ Patterson. Pat steps on sideline, shoots anyway, Melo swats it, Pat gets it back/shoots again, Melo swat

KC Johnson

The ol' 35-point 1st quarter will produce some profanity and defensive film fodder for Sir Thibodeau.

Chip Crain

Conley shows how you make Freethrows and then Calathes gets rolled on

Marcus Thompson

the sun finally retreated behind the stadium wall … my brow can finally relax #NoSunglasses #ButIHaveAnExtraCoat

Joe Cowley

TWolves on pace to score 140 points ... guessing the Thibs won't like that.

Marc Berman

Dalembert has 9 rebounds already - cleaning up in his former hometown of Mont Royale.

Chip Crain

Grizz up 23-19 after a nice run. There is a spark with several guys coming in off the bench.

Joel Brigham

The last hoops I cover in the spring are high-intensity contests. Then I come back to... preseason ball, which is sloppy, to be kind.
