Manu said he wanted to attack on his last shot, but, "I had no legs to get to the rim. I'm disappointed in that shot that I took."
The pup can't handle these west coast games. http://t.co/D683ZhatvE
It wasn't easy, but the Blazers are going to beat the Bucks to improve to 20-6. Up next is toughest roadie of the year: SA, NO, HOU, OKC
DeAndre Jordan about to have a 20 rebound night
Nuggets swarming to Harden in the lane. He's finding shooters, but can that make enough 3s? Nuggets up 3 heading to fourth.
Would've been poetic if that CJ Miles 3-pter had gone in for the 4-point play as he was fouled by the 4-point play master, Jamal Crawford.
Rondo trade reminds me so much of the Kidd acquisition in the sense that when they acquired him, he was a bad fit for what they were doing
What's the difference between Renner and Carlos Mencia? There's no punchline. I'm just curious.
Playmaking by Gallo right there..
Now, which player will Kidd have hit him to spill his drink?
LAC up 78-72. Defense a little better in the 3rd. Team's getting out and running. Only shooting 59.4 % from FT line, DJ 4/12 from stripe
After three quarters: Clippers 78, Pacers 72.
Glen "Big Baby" Davis ran up the middle to come set a screen and Scola unfortunately forgot to make way.
Wolters and O'Bryant in game and T-Rob back for Blazers.
About three of you guys immediately tweeted back at me with "Lance!" Comedians here, I see.
Blazers F Thomas Robinson had 25 points and 30 rebounds for the entire season entering Wed. Posted 15/16 in start vs. Bucks
Enormous ovation for Thomas Robinson as he is taken out of the game: 15 points, 16 rebounds, a block and tons of energy. A job well done
Robinson goes out to standing ovation. He has 15 points and 16 boards despite 5 of 15 at line.
Stotts finally says enough and takes T-Rob out to a huge ovation.
The guy just called the police to say there's something wrong with his car and he can't stop. Points for creativity dude!
If Lavoy Allen's far and away the team's best rebounder, who's No. 2?
Tough stretch for the Blazers coming up without RoLo. Spurs, Rockets, Thunder, Raptors, Hawks all coming up. Clippers, Spurs, Grizz in Jan.
Blazers booing T-Rob when the hack-a-Dwight helped them win Game 1 vs. Houston. Hilarious.
Robinson is 4 for 13 at line. Fans booing Bucks big-time now as they keep fouling T-Rob.
I have Triple OT Spurs-Grizz game (-2.5) over Hour-long Local TV Car Chase From Hollywood to Malibu. Chase still going so line might drop.
Prince's "Eye Hate U" is on satellite radio...can't find this anywhere
This game is incredibly dull.
The fans are cheering for T-Rob to make these free-throws now.
McHale going with Nick Johnson in backcourt with Harden, rather than Canaan. Canaan was stretching ankle on bench in 1st half.
Somebody said Weezy was here. Started looking for Louise Jefferson.
Bucks employing the hack-a-T-Rob tactic and it's working. Robinson is 3-for-11 at the free throw line
Bucks playing hack-a-Rob, who struggles at line.
Kidd doing the hack a T-Rob after Pop did it on Monday.
Harden pocket pass to Tarik Black dunk gives Rockets bench their first points of the game. There's 5 min left in 3rd.
Careful watching some of these Christmas movies. ... It's impossible not to cry during The Family Stone.
Well, hack-a-TRob is a thing now. Thanks, Pop.
It's too bad Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen don't care for each other, because that would be my first call if I'm the Mavs and I get Rondo.
Rockets apparently left their defense in the locker room, found it at halftime. Nuggets 2 of 10 to start half. Tie game.
Batum made the free-throw and stays in the game.
Flagrant-1 foul called on Sanders. Kidd takes him out of game. Smart move.
Clips respond to a 6-0 run with a 6-0 run.
No one more frustrated tonight on either team than Afflalo is..
Batum gets up. And he takes a seat on the Blazers bench. Officials give Sanders a flagrant 1.
Hey, I like Memphis. They're a really, really good team. But, what's with all the praise for beating Spurs without Parker and Leonard?
I feel sorry for those people who ignore the NBA until Christmas or, ugh, the playoffs.
Batum up and walking off the court.
Am I the only who saw Larry give Batum a small push as he was going up? Dangerous stuff.
Batum's fall seemed even worse than Antetokounmpo's in the first half
Batum walking off to huge cheers from Moda Center crowd.
Nicolas Batum is up and walking back towards Blazers bench.
16 fast break points for Clips but can't even remember their last dunk. Jamal Crawford in the 2nd Q, maybe?
Batum's face/shoulder basically broke his fall. Foul called on Sanders who pushed Batum while he was already dunking the ball.
Didn't see it at first, but Sanders gave Batum a little shove, leading to that fall.
Lavoy is doing his thing on the glass tonight. 6 boards in 12 minutes.
Hard fall by Batum on dunk and Sanders called for foul. Under review.
That pass by Harden to D-Mo for the corner three was absolutely spectacular.
Nicolas Batum appeared to hit his head hard on the court after a dunk. He remains down on the court as Blazers take timeout
Wow. Nic Batum did a face plant after a dunk and is down on the court.
Nicolas Batum just had a monster dunk and a nasty fall. Still down.
"Big shots made, big shots missed." - Tim Duncan on the loss in 3OT.
Aldridge on perimeter against Sanders is no-win for Bucks.
Portland on 11-0 run for 88-79 lead.
Lionel Hollins' old team, the Memphis Grizzlies, beat the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Doris has handles.
Hey Rajon Rondo! How does it feel to have five teams, including two contenders battling to trade for you? Rondo: http://t.co/VTrNfU4htC
Thomas Robinson with 11 points and 14 rebounds with 4 minutes left ... His career high is 18 rebounds
Pachulia and Sanders in game together but Bucks have gone cold.
A team in need of a third big could do a lot worse this offseason than a modest 2-yr deal for Lavoy Allen. Useful, defends, boards, heady.
The last triple-overtime game for San Antonio (Per SAS): Spurs last 3OT regular season game: 3/20/1984 135-132 win vs ATL
Thomas Robinson with 11 points, 12 rebounds, has fifth double-double of career, first of season.
We'll play the highlights on the show tomorrow at 9. Should only take a billion hours.
Houston had nary a bench point in the first half. None.
Blazers making a run with this Freeland-Robinson line-up. 84-79 Blazers with 5:50 left.
I'm troubled...I value floor-spacing with this team...they need rebounding and perimeter D...is the swap enough? Did Mavs sign J O'Neal yet?
So, Parker's out for the year, Giannis sprains an ankle. Winter is here...
Well shit. I'm excited. Maybe for nothing, but can't help it.
Roy Hibbert sits with four fouls, so quick entry for Lavoy Allen at the 10:08 mark. Meaningful time w/ starters for Allen
Middleton 4/5 on threes tonight. 0/2 on trying to get rim on 10-foot floaters.
Can't see Ainge, in mid-December, being like, "Yeah, I'll settle for Wright and a late 1st." But maybe I'm wrong.
Nic Batum's first basket of the night is a big one: A three-pointer that gives Blazers 80-79 lead. Batum now 1-for-9
Muscala out here dunking
So I think the refs in MIL-PDX just called a double foul on a block and charge?
They just called a double-foul on block charge. This has to be a new one.
So Jabari tears his ACL & Giannis sprains his ankle? No more West Coast trips for MIL
Just FYI, the puppy was just eight weeks old when the game started.
Watching the Bucks the last two games makes me think that Jason Kidd might be better at coaching basketball than Larry Drew.
I live vicariously through Free-Throw Guy
Nothing about Korver getting ice on his knees on the sideline do I approve of.
DeAndre Jordan already has 10 boards. Last time these teams met, Jordan grabbed 19 -- the highest total IND has given up to one player.
Pop on his team fighting back after being down 17 in 3Q: "I was real proud of them, they showed a lot of fortitude."
Pop: "We shot free throws poorly."
Blazers bench is 6-for-20 tonight.
A number to watch for the second half: IND currently getting outreb'd 25-18, and are 0-9 when teams have the reb edge on them.
Pop on Manu's last shot: "Everybody tries to win the game and it just didn't fall for him."
"This is the Association. This is what it is. This is how it be." - Zach Randolph Perfect game. Perfect quote. NBA is rolling right now.
My favorite stat about Bucks is they have 57 games to get 3 more wins, which would give them more victories than they had last season.
List of teams that have reportedly inquired on Rondo recently: Indiana, Houston, New York, LA Lakers, Dallas, Sacramento.
Bucks have no choice but to go small - 4 guards and Zaza.
Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford chatting with Lil Wayne before the start of the second half.
After that Freeland bucket, the Blazers have 18 second-chance points. Bucks have 7.
Spurs were 13-for-27 on free throws & threw two passes to the other team in the final seconds. That's gotta hurt.
Have to give props to the Grizzlies. Reached in the tank there after going down to the wire last night vs. Warriors.
Wave your magic wand, Mitch. http://t.co/dI0T4JqXul
Marc Gasol: 50 points, 16 rebounds and 81 minutes in a 28-hour span.
Bucks are 9-1 when leading after three quarters. They are leading. After three quarters.
Memphis back-to-back wins vs. Warriors and Spurs should win another Coach of the Month for Joerger.
True that Golden State was missing Bogut and Lee -- and Spurs without Parker and Kawhi -- but impressive for Memphis nonetheless.
Look at this happy man. http://t.co/f9sGKejxF2
So the Grizzlies kind of just beat the Warriors and Spurs on a back-to-back.
Zach Randolph with 21 and 21 on 2nd night of a back-to-back. I remember when folks were trying to breakup the Grizz, and he was 1st on list.
If Celtics are going to deal Rondo this season, this is the time to explore it. Trading him in Dec will net a better return than Feb trade.
Best teams in the NBA at this very moment: 1. Grizzlies, 2. Warriors, 3. Thunder.
21 pts 21 rebs for ZBO. warrior. what a warrior.
End of 3: Bucks 70, Blazers 68. Lillard has 24 points. Aldridge with 17 and 13. Brandon Knight with 18 points to lead MIL.
Last 3 buckets of quarter are triples for Bucks - two by Middleton and one by Knight. Bucks lead 70-68 entering fourth.
My stance on Rondo: I'll truly believe if they say the deal is done.
Rockets cut 16-point lead to five at half by adding Howard's scoring to Harden's. Still looking for their defense.
Memphis beats Golden State & San Antonio on back-to-back nights. If they're not careful, they'll get top seed & see Durant in first round.
Tim Duncan just played 47 minutes in 3OT loss to Grizzlies. Finished with 23 and 16 while inspiring me to hit treadmill for sure tmrw
60-55 Nuggets at half. Strong close -- 17-6 run by the Rockets to end half. Harden has 23 to lead all scorers, Dwight has 13-6-3 blocks.
What an unbelievable week of basketball for the Grizzlies. To come out of it 4-0 is insane
Heckuva back-to-back win for the Grizz. Western balance of power shifted?
Welp, that was wild.
Bucks announce that Giannis Antetokounmpo will not return because of a left ankle sprain
Griz win. Have a puppy. http://t.co/7FR8xtBOb0
Well that could be a fun playoff series
Grizzlies hold on, win by one in third OT over Spurs. What an impressive back to back set for Memphis!
Grizzlies win wild one vs Spurs but the bigger win is that they found the scoring wing everyone says they need in Marc Gasol.
Man, that was a bad shot.
117-116 win for Grizzlies over Spurs in 3OT day after beating Warriors.
This SAS-MEM game should've ended on a better shot than that Ginobili splat...
Duncan is so good he missed that point-blank layup on purpose to get Danny Green that 3-pointer. Ginobili then tried the same thing.
Yeah, I probably should go to more games this season.
That's one heck of a victory for the Memphis Grizzlies. Beat Golden state and the Spurs back to back.
Hawks fans, with the way Teague/Umlaut/Mack are playing, are you interested in dealing for Rondo?
Manu the buzz kill
That shot from Ginobili was basically him saying, "I've had enough of this game."
Spurs fall in triple-overtime 117-116 to the Grizzlies. SA is now 17-9 on the season, 0-3 in overtime. Green 25 points, Duncan 23-16-5.
Grizzlies beat San Antonio 117-116 in three overtimes. One of the very best games this season. Memphis beat Golden State last night, too.
Warriors and Spurs on back-to-back nights. Damn.
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! GRIZZLIES WIN IN 3 OT's vs SPURS. Now 21-4. First win in San Antonio since Battier 3 in 2011 playoffs. Woooooooooo
Middleton is 4 for 4 from 3-point range.
Not surprising Lakers have engaged Celtics about acquiring Rondo. After all… http://t.co/4wJgLypXSp
Hey Grizzlies & Spurs - Give us a few more overtimes so we can watch the end of it when we land!
Memphis wins 117-116.
Ginobili with the 3, and nothing but glass. Grizzlies win 117-116.
Blazers haven't done a very good job of rotating to Khris Middleton, 39 percent 3-point shooter. He's 4/4 from deep tonight.
Spurs get stop...
Green, of course, with the 3 after Duncan blows the layup. One-point game.
Danny Green makes his 7th three of the game. He's got 25 points. SA down 1.
Zbo gives the Grizzlies a 4 point lead. 1 minute left.
Z-Bo drills 15 footer. Memphis by 4, less than a minute left.
Ginobili turns it over
ESPN sources say Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets are also among the teams to engage Celtics in Rajon Rondo trade talks in recent days
Duncan strips Gasol...
Danny reaching, gets called for foul. Might be a bit fatigued in his 52nd minute.
That's what happens when you play 51 minutes. You start to reach for fouls.
Feels like a massive possession here, even with 2 minutes to go.
This has been broke out to deal with this game http://t.co/XO5b3s8TGv
Seems like those finger splints aren't affecting Lillard too much anymore. 3-for-5 from 3 and 22 points tonight. 64-64 2:23 Q3.
Arthur coming in for Mozgov..
I'm thinking 4OT
Halftime: Clippers 52, Pacers 51.
Can't think of a scenario where Rondo makes sense for the 14-15 Pacers.
Wilson Chandler looking for a foul after than one, and probably should have gotten it
We're back to the lockout season — Memphis is playing a back-to-back-to-back tonight.
1:58 left in 3OT, Spurs trail Grizzlies 115-113. Duncan 23 points, 16 bords, 5 dimes. Green 22 points, Manu 21 points, 7 assists. Diaw 17
Memphis up 115-113, with possession, 1:58 left.
Zach Randolph is eating right now.
Oh yeah, the Spurs were down by 23 at one point, too. That seems like about a month ago.
"(The Rockets) have a different approach than we do... We think chemistry matters," said Mark Cuban... now trying to trade for Rajon Rondo.
Clippers lead Pacers, 52-51, at halftime but it's a pretty uninspired effort.
Jamal Crawford's touch-shot 3 comes after the buzzer, Clipper up 52-51 at half. Giving up too many layups.
Car chase through WeHo on kcal!
Vogel effusively praised Solomon Hill during pre game. This being his hometown and all. Lived up to w/ 8 pts, 5 rebs this half.
Zbo breaks the tie, Grizz 115-113. 2:23 left.
Duncan up to 45 minutes. Green...51.
IIRC, Spurs have never played a quadruple OT game in their history.
The crawl on @nbatv just called my blog "zany" and I've never been prouder.
Spurs-Grizz best game of the season? Sitting here with my brother, yelping for every go-ahead, then game-tier - waking-up slumbering Pops
This tweet is weird, but true: With Nurkic out, Dwight Howard goes straight to work in the post, scores back-to-back buckets
Officially only 11 lead changes. Feels like twice that many.
No sense for Giannis to test anything right now.
Prediction: Now that they've lost Giannis, Bucks will beat Blazers on Dudley turnaround granny shot.
Matt Bonner sitting-down travel dance
113 all after the Zbo bucket. Good pass by Gasol.
I can't even really think straight about all the ridiculous shit that has happened in this game tonight.
Meanwhile Knight and Mayo keeping Bucks afloat against tough Portland team.
Dead possession, so Pop brings back Manu and Tiago.
Damjan Rudez on the floor for the Hack-A-Jordan. Picks up third foul
Nicolas Batum tonight: 0-for-7 from the field, 0-for-4 from 3 pt range. Three rebounds, five assists.
I had hair when this game started. http://t.co/QAomkde3Ee
I think this is the second three-OT game in the NBA this season. Bucks-Nets the other one...
In his first career start, Thomas Robinson has done everything Blazers could have wanted: 9 pts, 9 rebs, hustle, few if any poor decisions
Love Brandon Knight's game.
Tiago Splitter re-enters the game.
Duncan's gonna turn 40 before this game ends.
And as i say that, Nurkic comes off after picking up a 2nd foul.. He's got 2 points and 6 rebounds in 10 minutes, & been solid in the post
Giannis with left ankle sprain and will not return, team says.
Telly Hughes, omen of the apocalypse, says Giannis will not return tonight. But was doing some running outside of the locker room.
My poor mother....
I've been trying to think of something clever to tweet but all I can think of is: "Tim Duncan."
Ayres and Baynes are so going to get minutes Fri & Sat vs. Blazers and Mavs.
Aldridge rarely misses that medium-range jumper. Pure shot.
Classic Duncan fundamentals there on the (turnaround, fading, straight away, insane) bank shot.
Grizz looking at that Duncan shot like… http://t.co/Ew7z9KYAa1
Duncan feels it, gets triple OT started with a make. He's got 23 points
Yea why not a bushel for Tim Duncan http://t.co/YSrsXBMdgJ
6 overtime periods and a battle of 1 vs 2 in the NBA. Just an average week for the Grizzlies
