HoopsHype NBA Media twitter
Giannis left-hander spun out on Bucks first possession of second half.
Random tweet: Big new fan of Brian Anderson. Great PXP job during NCAAs and NBA playoffs.
Brooklyn and Atlanta pretty much summed up the Eastern Conference in seven seconds.
Both teams w/ 104 points on 92 possessions through regulation. Hawks have shot & rebounded better. 18 TOs have hurt, though.
Islanders trail 1-0 after 2 Nets-Hawks headed to OT Yanks lead 3-1 in 7th
Bulls fans..thoughts on the 2nd half?
Kids, avert your eyes from that final 10 seconds of the Nets and Hawks. Listen to your dad - hold for one shot. Get Bogey off the floor on D
Nets/Hawks final play execution just now = non-optimal
Hey Nets and Hawks, some free advice: Don't try those plays at the end of a game anymore.
Apparently, Hawks thought they had a full shot clock. Have to at least get a shot up.
The Hawks decided they could run an even worse play than the Nets. What the hell was that.
5 more minutes. Do you believe?
Atlanta, you realize the game is timed - with a clock and such?
Apparently awful late game play diagramming and execution is contagious
Atlanta was the best "clutch" team in regular season. Then, that possession...
this game is so bad that it is good.
The end of this game featured some basketball that makes you put the Wizards in the conference finals.
Nets went too quick on their last possession, Hawks took too long when they got it back, and we go to OT tied at 104-all.
Nets went too quick. Hawks went too slow.
Or not. Couldn't have had worse execution from both sides in the final 10 seconds. Overtime, only because this game was an early start.
To overtime we go...
Free basketball in BK
Bazemore is the new Tony Allen.
Yeah, that was odd to take it so early.
Hawks ran Kyle Korver around a triple on that last possession to tie, then went to Millsap as the second option. We'll see what they do here
There was no need for Deron Williams to rush like that. Watch this Hawks execution for the win now.......
Did Deron think there were actually six seconds left?
are the Nets the dumbest team on earth? how do you not take the last shot there?
At one point, only a few years ago, D-Will was arguably the 2nd best point guard in the L, after Chris Paul. Went back to back in '05 draft.
God damn it Deron
Deron Williams has been incredible, but that wasn't good at all. You cannot give the Hawks the final shot in that situation.
Wow, that was way, way too early.
Hawks get rebound after Williams misses with 6.5 seconds left. Didn’t need to rush.
Nice of the Nets to leave so much time on the clock for the Hawks here.
Yeah that's the worst play call.
Bucks 52-49 at half Bulls and Bucks each with 8 turnovers Butler 10-5-4 Middelton-MCW=29
Game on the line and the Nets go with an ISO for Deron. Not surprising
WHAT THE HELL DID YOU GO SO QUICKLY FOR????!!!!!!
Why do you go that early?
Got the stop! Now let's get the win!
WTF! Nets let the bride just walk down the aisle!?!?
There are worse results than giving up a two there...
Guard Deron but don’t forget about Joe
Iso Joe time? They have to go to Deron, right?
I S O J O E
Bogdanovic got totally lost on the Korver baseline action, forcing a Nets switch. Millsap did the rest. Korver should get an assist.
Bojan let Paul Millsap get to basket uncontested and game is tied at 104-104 with 16.4 seconds left.
Deron Jesus time?
Staples voice "That was easy"
OK, I'm less confused now.
The announcers aren't even talking about the magnitude of how bad that call is. I thought this stuff was supposed to be fixed w/ the delays.
Paul Millsap will have none of that!
Hey, Nets, c'mere. Some advice for ya: That Korver guy. Don't leave him.
Down 2. What's the play call?
No way Teague had possession, that shot clock should not have reset.
No clue why they let the shot clock reset there. But play-by-play was changed to a Teague rebound + TO.
Deron Williams is really feeling like his old self tonight!! He may get Lionel Hollins fired after the game just to make it official
Refs blew that shot clock reset...
Ooh, bad break for the Hawks...
Atlanta game. Apparently, officials are often terrible everywhere.
Not even close to possession. Awful call
Deron Williams' playoff career high for points is 35 (2009 vs. Lakers). He has 33 now with under a minute to go. Nets up 104-102.
I think we should call Lopez's little push a hook shot put...
Now THAT'S the D-Will that got Jerry Sloan fired.
Brooklyn update: Islanders one period away from being Brooklyn's new team down 1-0. Deron lighting up borough as Nets up 3 with 1:15 left.
I TOLD YOU ALL!!! I TOLD YOU ALL!!! Billy King at this exact moment, probably
Why isn’t Al Horford in the game?
Deron Williams now has five fouls.
Breaking: Nets Acquire Deron Williams Before Game 4 Of Nets-Hawks
Where is Al Horford?
OK. I see you now Deron Williams. Loooong 3 and a steal.
Meanwhile, Bucks fans busy digging through their garbage to find those Game 6 tickets ...
Deron Williams strikes again...
I'm confused by the Nets caring
Great D by the Hawks, better shot by Deron.
I saw D-Will miss one shot then I had to change a diaper (not mine) and the Hawks are ahead again.
Oh my God. Deron Williams.
All of the sudden I'm struggling to find all the twitter folks who hate Deron Williams.
Wesley Matthews, Robin Lopez, and Nic Batum all on the court together. Matthews walked off with a smile & said, "Just like old times, man."
Since the Nets put Joe Johnson in, the Hawks are on a 12-5 run.
If any game necessitates putting the ball in Deron Williams’s hands down the stretch to run the offense, this is it.
Jeff Teague should have taken that three in rhythm instead of passing to Pero for the look.
Joerger on Mike Conley: "The surgery went well, there's not a lot of swelling. ... We want him back, and we want to win this one for Mike."
We okay, True Believers? http://t.co/pMrEsF376A
Joe Johnson's ball-stopping has hurt the Nets on a couple of 4th quarter possessions.
Jeff Teague has answered the call.
For the first time in this series, we see triple digits on the scoreboard. Teague's layup makes it 101-99 with 2:18 to play.
This series finally producing fun-to-watch basketball. And you absolutely want Deron Williams to have the ball down the stretch. Crazy.
The other day I joked about Durant doing a Sonic guys commercial and now he's in one. If I see Rick Barnes in a Staples ad, I'll freak out.
Dave Joerger said "we'll see" on whether Beno Udrih will start at PG for th Grizzlies.
Can't say enough about Deron's court vision tonight. Excellent decision making.
Teague with the ole defense to aid that Deron pass
Friedman said McCarthy's elbow was clean at signing. Despite injury history, chalks it up to something that could happen to any pitcher. BK
Deron Williams with the perfect pocket pass.
End 2, Capitals up, 1-0. Capitals have the edge in shots, 21-7.
Bucks guards Middleton and Carter-Williams have been outstanding. Combine for 29 pts
Bucks shooting 45.7% at half and Bulls at 44.2%. Bulls 3 for 12 from 3-point range as Bucks making effort there. Bucks are 4 for 9 from 3.
This stuff in Baltimore is sad beyond belief. Makes my blood boil.
Bucks lead 52-49 at the half. They’ve gained all this confidence and now the Bulls are playing with fire. Middleton, 15, MCW 14
Joerger said the Griz offense is like running the ball 50 out of 70 times, "but for us running the ball is throwing it into the post."
Capitals, 1-0, 18:35 of the second period. Orkpik fires from the left point with Boychuk in front, and Ward jams it in under Halak.
Bulls have had a bunch of defensive breakdowns. Very unusual for such a well-coached, vet-laden team.
They just ruled that last Pero Antic shot a 3-pointer but it looked like a 2-pointer to me.
Bulls down 52-49 at the half. Not much energy in here right now. Bulls -- and the crowd -- need a spark in second half.
I can't even describe how quiet it is here at the United Center as the Bucks lead the Bulls 52-49 at the half
Dear Derrick, you are being outplayed by Michael Carter-Williams. Just in case you didn't know that. Kyrie is at home shaking his head.
Ward got back
HT: Bucks 52, Bulls 49. MCW with solid half as he scores 14 and dishes 6 assists. Attacking off dribble. Middleton with 15.
Bucks lead 52-49 at the half.
Niskanen's shot gloved by Halak. He had five guys between he and the goaltender, but Halak still had a clear view of the puck.
Joerger on Conley: "It's hard to say if it will be a week or a month or three weeks or three months."
Turnover #4 for Rose tonight. And now the Bucks are playing with some serious confidence. Up 52-49
The R2 button makes a player speed up ...what the heck button did someone hit on Pachulia to make him that slow?
And of course MCW throws it away IMMEDIATELY AFTER I COMPLIMENT HIM.
Aside from one rushed jumper, MCW really playing under control tonight. 12 points on 7 shots, 6 ast and 1 to. More please.
Michael Carter-Williams was a much better player when he was making more money at Syracuse.
Ball to the post, post pass out, swing, swing .... rinse and repeat .... let's go boys. Cleveland awaits!!!
If Halak isn't stopping the Capitals' rebounds, the Islanders are doing a good job of cleaning them up. Several they've denied this period.
Jamie Foxx in one of the suites. Yes fans are trying to take selfies with him below the suite
Seeing D Will go off, 30 pts so far. Crazy seeing how his body is moving in a way we haven't seen in a while. The confidence of makes.
This series is just so dang boring though
Sometimes you just have to see it to believe it. Turning on the Nets-Hawks game to see if Deron Williams really is playing like it's 2009.
Noah having his most active game in weeks w/8 pts, 5 rebs (4 off), 5 assts and 2 blox; sign Bulls finally feeling urgency; 46-44 Bucks
Each team with 7 TOs so far. Bucks lead 46-44 after 2 FTs by MCW. Carter-Williams with 10 pts and 6 assists so far in 16 minutes.
I guess Deron Willians wants Paul Pierce in round two for those comments
Bucks 46-44 2:57 left 2nd...Bulls 7 turnovers Bucks-7 turnovers
I'd like to have some of what Deron Williams is having. He sure picked a time to come alive. 30 points after b2b 3's, Nets lead 93-88.
To summarize: Deron Williams is killing it tonight. Has 30 points and 5 assists.
Deron Williams has 13 points in the first 5 minutes of the fourth quarter - not 13 total. 13 in 5 minutes. Nets lead 93-88. Weird.
this is purely MY OPINION, but I will be shocked if Love plays at any point in postseason
Deron Williams is in flames. 30 points.
Found him. Where do I collect? http://t.co/u9gG7nrSUb
Now WHO is the guy the GUY that takes over for the Atlanta Hawks down the stretch?
100 MILLION DOLLAR DERON WILLIAMS!!!!!!!
Deron Williams might have the first press conference ever that starts with people apologizing to him. 30 points, Nets lead 93-88.
Oh, hi, Deron Williams...
I have no stake in this series, but the thought of this Nets team becoming the sixth No. 8 seed to upset a No. 1 ... hurts my brain.
wait, is Deron Williams good again? I'm so confused
yo is deron williams good at bball or not
This is getting nuts. Deron Williams giving the Hawks a 30-piece, no sauce.
BARCLAYS CENTER IS ON FIRE AND IT IS DERON WILLIAMS’S FAULT
Holy crap, Deron Williams.
Two straight offensive boards by Noah lead to buckets for Bulls. But Mayo drills a triple and MCW scores.
Fans chanting “OJ Sucks”, which only happens when that guy is lighting up your team. He is.
Yo Paul Pierce. You watching this?
Deron Williams taking over. Nets lead 90-88.
Millsap can’t punish Alan Anderson in the post and the Hawks aren’t getting much out of those possessions. Doesn’t bode well
Chanting "O.J. sucks'' at the UC.
"O.J. Sucks" chant breaking out
Mayo is still hitting and dancing all in Butler’s face. Butler has to tighten up and keep his composure
O.J. Mayo is my new favorite Bucks player.
Bulls doing a better job of making the extra pass tonight. It's what Dunleavy said had to happen after Game 4.
Noah looks so much better. He's been so hit or miss this year.
If there's (this) D-Will, there's a way.
Deron Williams just dove in between Teague and Horford for an easy layup. Now has 24 points. Had 18 in the first 3 games combined.
Niko wakes up..... His beard says, "About time Niko.''
This is the best Noah's looked all series.
The Meek Greek??
Noah is everywhere.
Nets giving Hawks life and death.
Nigel Williams-Goss told ESPN he will visit Gonzaga this weekend and Ohio State the following weekend. Has been to UNLV and Providence.
Nice answer by Korver
Korver Kounter: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥
Gonna be a busy commitment day tomorrow: 2 p.m. - Lamonte' Turner 3:30 - Mychal Mulder TBD - Cheick Diallo
Butler leads Bulls with 10 points and Noah with offensive surge for 8 points.
Bucks seem now to have lost memo about supposed to be giving up; Mayo and Butler dbl t's; 37-37
Glencross just completely whiffed on Green's shot from the right point. He was at the doorstep, and nothing.
BKN w/ 3 3s on their 1st 5 possessions of the 4th. Williams hit one, assisted on one & had a hockey assist on the 3rd. 85-85 w/ 9:16 left.
Deron, is that you?
The Hawks have eight second half offensive rebounds, and 14 total. If the Nets can start grabbing boards, they can win.
Kidd and Foster work Sean Corbin and almost immediately Corbin calls foul on Bulls.
85-all, 9:16 left. After three pretty lousy basketball games, a real good one going in Brooklyn.
Hell of a comeback by the Nets. Deron Williams continues to cook, threes are falling and we’re tied at 85 with 9:16 to play.
We've got ourselves a ball game.
Pachulia and ref Sean Corbin went into standard at end of that play. No harm done. Zaza was trying to hold him up.
Man, Barclays Center just exploded. Might be the loudest I've heard it.
I'm a big fan of TNT keeping the ATL/BKN updated score up permanently during CHI/MIL and NBA TV doing vice versa.
It's loud in here now. We're tied at 85 with 9:16 to go.
Nets get bailed out there after again failing to get an offensive rebound, then tie the game with a 3-pointer. Barclays Center explodes.
Starters back for Atlanta
37-37 5:56 left 2nd.
Mike Budenholzer isn't screwing around any longer. All 5 Hawks starters back on the floor just at just under the 10:00 mark of 4th.
Observation, after seven games: Halak makes some really weird decisions on when to play the puck.
Butler has to keep his composure -- Bulls can ill afford to lose him for a game if something else happens later in this one.
This crowd is ROCKING tonight. Barclays sounds great.
Going small with it all on the line.
Joe Crawford on edge: calls Ts on Butler and Mayo. No reason to call it.
ONE MORE DOUBLE TECHNICAL, OJ! YOU CAN DO IT!
Mayo happy to be villain here in Chi-town. Double tech on Mayo and Butler.
He didn't get in Kirk's face .... just saying.... Grit scares!
Butler scores, then barks at Mayo. Mayo comes down, scores on Butler+foul. Barking continues. Joey Crawford puts a stop to that.
Double technicals on Mayo and Butler. I think the Bucks will make that trade any day.
Giannis finally finds a way to get the better of Butler -- gets position down low and drops a hook in with the friendly roll. First bucket.
"What's a boxout?" - Nets entire lineup
Bayless went down a few minutes ago. He was unhappy with foul call and MCW in for him now.
Hard to believe the Nets are going to lose this game because of offensive rebounds.
Mayo getting Butler's face ... Mayo doesn't care ... he's the Honey Badger.... T on Butler and Mayo.
Mato and Butler have been jawing at each other most of the night. Joey gives them each a T.
Deron Williams now with 20 points, has surpassed his output of 18 from the first three games.
Much more aggressive Noah ... he smells Cleveland blood...
Rose back ... time to turn it up #1.
