Ginobili admits he's still out-of-whack basketball wise. Still ... 0 for 9 is yikes
Good sequence set up by Anderson there. Drove in, found Bryce at the three, who kicked it to Daye in the corner for three.
Garrett Temple played 42 minutes tonight.
Noah: "I feel good. And I feel I can do more. I’m happy because compared to how I felt 2 weeks ago, it’s progressing. And that’s a positive.

LeBron on Derrick Rose: "I'm not surprised at all. As a league, as a fan, it's great to have him back playing at a high level."
DeMarcus Cousins is having one of those games in NBA 2K15 where you know you're going to score over 25 points before the game starts.
Always reassuring, what with Ebola and ISIS and all the madness, to look over and see Dave Robinson munching his popcorn in the second row.
The Cousins chat with the ref was in fun. Well I thought it was funny.
DeMarcus Cousins has four fouls and all of them are at the offensive end and he is not a fan of that.
Rose: "I’m just trying to pick my spots of when I can affect the game and also get people involved."
Jeff Ayres gets to the line, he's got 7 points in the quarter, 11 in the game.

Speaking of which, isn't Mr. Fantastic about the most egotistical superhero name ever?
Hairston for MKG in must-have scoring situation.
Coach Bud brought Elton in for OT, and he responded with two clutch jumpers. We're up 114-112 with 37.1 to go in OT.
Parker throws ball into 5th row, then stares Marco Belinelli down because he can't elongate his body like Mr. Fantastic. TO No. 14.
Belinelli just threw a pass over my head. Not good considering I'm sitting courtside.
Bucks shoot 59.7 percent, defeat the Knicks 120-107. I'm not going to read much into preseason games, but ... defense is a concern.
McLemore just led a break and fed Collison for a layup. That's a play I don't think he makes last season.
Just talked to Anthony Davis. He said his right wrist is fine. He wanted to return to game but Monty Williams held him out.
Bucks finish shooting 59.7 percent in 120-107 win. Same old Knicks as one fan jeers on his way out.
Cody Zeller fouls out with 2:45 left in overtime.
Bucks win 120-107 to even preseason record at 3-3. One more left vs. Minnesota on Wednesday, then time for the real thing.
Jeff Ayres gets the great hustle clap from Pop as he hustled to get a steal off a pass and Boogie got called for the offensive foul.
Dude just got Dikembe Mutombo-into-the-10th-row blocked on the Kiss Cam. And he got her a courtside seat, too.
Cousins has 3 fouls, all offensive fouls
Steelers go from 0-24 real quick.
Someone lashed out at me for saying NYK could potentially be just as bad on D -- if not worse -- this year. I hope he's watching this game.
Bucks still shooting over 60 percent. The only thing missing tonight at the Garden is a chant of "Fire Woodson."
And we have our second exasperated Popovich TO after Spurs beaten downcourt for transition layup. Kings lead 64-54, 10:26 3Q.
Knicks Twitter clamoring for Cole Aldrich in case anyone was still thinking about putting them in the playoffs.
I think this one is over folks. Nets up 99-88 with 56 seconds left
Now that Cole has checked in, I need to re-write my entire story.
LeBron James says he wasn't surprised to see how good Derrick Rose looked out there. "As a league and as a fan it's great to have him back."
Plumlee is a BEAST. He's up to 20 points and 16 rebounds as the Nets lead 97-86 with 1:57 left as they are playing "Turn Down for What"
Berman of the Post and Knicks fans (redundant, I know) take the preseason far too seriously. I treat it like Popovich does.
Spurs are running JaMychal at the three though, first time tonight. He has to guard Rudy Gay. Good test for JaMychal in next minutes
World Series umpires: Jeff Kellogg (crew chief), Ted Barrett, Jeff Nelson, Eric Cooper, Jerry Meals, Jim Reynolds and Hunter Wendelstedt.
DeMarre Carroll miss. Overtime in preseason. Curse you, DeMarre.
And there's Green, scores with a tip-in. He has 12 points.

Plumlee up to 16 points after hitting a pair of FTs to give Nets a 93-85 lead. He also 16 bounds

DeMarcus Cousins has 19 pts (7-7 FG), 7 rebs, 3 asts, 2 stls at the half. Monster.
Looks a lot like last season. It's fourth quarter and Melo can't make a shot. Literally.
The unfortunate truth is Kobe will already be retired before those people finally appreciate his greatness and that’s a damn shame.
Trying to think of a more dramatic turnaround in an NFL game.
Fitzpatrick's gonna take a knee and somehow throw a pick six
Spoke at length to Pau Gasol about his recruitment by Heat. He says their situation was too "unclear" at time he made decision... (1/2)
Just a hunch, but I don't think Spike is making a movie about Bargnani. The Great Kazoo, however, might write a blues song about him
All 5 of our preseason games so far have been decided by 6 points or fewer. Why not continue the drama? 104-103 us with 39 seconds left.
Parker in with Bayless, Wolters, Mayo and Henson. Bucks lead 114-103.

Sims trying to take over for Sixers, scoring their last six points. Nets lead 90--83 with 4:21 left. Davies just fouled out.
Bucks lead 112-103 with 5:38 left. Time to stop saying it's just preseason. The defense may not get much better.

5/5 shooting (1/1 from three) 12 points 3 assists +19 rating Not a bad night so far for Dennis.

Sims makes a pair of foul shots as the pull within seven with 5:52 left
Nets up by nine (86-77) with 5:52 left
Michael Eric blocked Melo. You may never see that again.
Former/current players and coaches respect Kobe, his accomplishments and what he’s done for the game. That’s really all that matters.
I am done @Redsarmy. Gullible fans who read press releases in the papers. Truth hurts folks. Rondo not who want him to be. I am out.
Just tell me everything is going to be okay.
Please send your questions, comments, observations to me for our Pelicans' twitter mailbag.
Melo is back with 7:28 left. Maybe Fisher wants to win this one.
If Hammer released a new album today, it would be called "Please Hammer Don't Default on That Loan."
In preseason news, Rudy Gay has 14 points, 6 rebs, 2 assists. Collson has 10 points, 3 assists. Kings shot 54% in first half.

Now they're playing a song from my second-favorite gangster rapper, MC Hammer.
Paul just doin' what he does against Charlotte.
Halftime: Kings lead 60-49. Cousins crushing Duncan-less frontline with 19 points, 7 rebounds. Spurs with 12 TOs. J Green leads with 10 pts.
LOVED Martavis Bryant coming out of Clemson. What a catch.

44-57 halftime in Dallas
do with it (2/2)
Correction 3 starters. Sessions and Derrick Williams in.
Mavs just scored 57 points in first half vs. Grizzlies with only 4 points from Dirk. This team is gonna be an offensive juggernaut.

Diaw drills a wing 3, Spurs still trailing 60-47.
Sacramento on a 20-2 run over the last five minutes, so ...
Dudley told me before game he had a minor toe injury but would play because lineup so depleted. He has 14 points in 18 minutes off bench.
4 Kings starters and Sessions have taken control of the game again. Nice to know they can handle the Spurs with Bryce Cherry getting PG time
Milwaukee with 103 points with 9:37 left. That's not Fisher's mantra of defense first since West Point. Let's see if he rips team after.
I'm starting to get like Wroten. When he passes I'm starting to look away too
Hornets hit the shot-clock hat trick.
Manu really forcing it. Nearly turns it over on lob to Diaw. (Yes, a lob to Diaw.) Finally does on shovel pass in traffic to Ayres.
Milwaukee Bucks break the 100-point mark here at MSG with more than 10 mins to go in the 4Q. So there's that.
Kings back up by 11, after putting in their starters.
That's not an and-1?
Vast majority of players ignore courtside chatter. Boris engages in conversations.
The Bucks who are shooting the lights out here do not have Oscar Robertson, Lew Alcindor, Gary Payton, Ray Allen or even Brandon Knight.
The "M-V-P" chant breaks out as Jerome Jordan steps to the free-throw line.
Jerome Jordan is getting MVP chants. I think the fans took Lionel's Kareem joke a little too seriously.
Gary Neal has obviously had the Hornets' best preseason. Second is MKG. Cody Zeller has been up-and-down but showing progress.
Bucks with 94 points on 60 percent shooting through three quarters.
I'd like to stress that the triangle offense is supposed to help the Knicks defense.
Related to last (wingspan) tweet: K.J. McDaniels is an interesting player. Has the length & instincts to be an elite defender.
Pelicans close out with 88-84 victory against Wizards, but struggled in fourth quarter.
Damn, McDaniels is IMPRESSIVE shot blocker!
IT'S FINALLY OVER. Pelicans 88, Wizards 84. Pels starters were great. Reserves horrible.
The Bucks are 20 of 31 from inside the 3-point arc.
I like that the Spurs in-house DJ was playing California Love ....
Even Kareem Abdul Jordan misses a shot occasionally
Dirk with the rifle pass to Jameer for a layup.
Pargo finds Zeller for a layup. Zeller is now 8-of-10 for 17 points.

Pelicans' backups struggling in fourth quarter to close out game. Wizards have outscored Pels 36-18 in quarter.

The Bucks are shooting 61% from the field.
It's almost like Travis Wear is a blue and orange mamba.
Derek Fisher does very good tie knots. It's a well done knot.
Appears the alley-oop pass is not in Danny Green's skills set. His lob to the wide-open Aron Baynes soars a good 10 feet over his head.
Nets take a 68-67 lead into the fourth quarter
DeMarcus Cousins is a tough cover anyway. He's impossible for the Spurs' to defend without Duncan and Splitter available.
MASH unit for Sixers. Now Tony Wroten has ice on his lower back.
Up 6 w/18 secs left, Austin Rivers fouls Rasual Butler shooting a 3. Because preseason basketball.
Again in case you were wondering: "Saltalamacchia" has more letters than "Antetokounmpo"
That was a terrible foul by Austin Rivers. Fouling a 3-point shooter with 18 seconds left.
The Sixers two leading rebounders are .... Davies (6) and Shved (6).
Gonna get some cold cuts today.
As in more post-ups/more rebounding position/use jump shot as the changeup, not the first option.
Clifford said after summer league the key to Noah Vonleh reaching his potential is learning to be physical inside.
Still a two-point game, Kings leading 44-42
Spurs started off pretty clean but are now up to 10 turnovers with 5:39 left in the 2nd quarter.
The Sixers might lead the league in wingspan.

"I said Brooklyn Ball," is a thing that happened at Barclays just now.
Sampson in on the block party.
Chandler Parsons with 8 points and dreamy hair, LEGGGO Grizz
Kings have played subs most of the second, and the offense and defense have suffered. Gay, Cousins back in w/ Collison, McLemore, Sessions

7 points now for Bryce Cotton, the young rookie nails a 3-point attempt in transition.
McDaniels layup makes it 65-62 Sixers with 1:47 left in third

Derrick Rose has 30 points for Bulls. He looked great. Great matchup between Rose and Kyrie Irving, who had 28 points
Another block by McDaniels as Sixers lead 63-62
This game used to be a blowout. Now with 49 seconds, the Pelicans lead is 89-78.
Apparently cutting one's fingernails on the subway is now socially acceptable.
Wrap on his right wrist/thumb has affected his shot, but Deron Williams continues to look quick with his dribble and confident w/ moves.
Pelicans' reserves have been sloppy with the ball. They have nine turnovers in 4Q.
A three by Shelvin and a pair of FTs by Thabo put us up 82-77 after three quarters. Coach Bud's been looking for a strong Q4, is this it?
Bulls lose -- but Rose looked great. He finishes with 30 points and played with the most confidence/aggression he's shown in a while.
Cavs scoot by Bulls 107-98. Kyrie 28 pts, Varejao 22, LeBron 18, Love 13 rebs. And Derrick Rose, wow. 30 pts. Not a bad game for preseason.
Grizz 1-8 from 3......
Cavaliers beat Bulls in 1st look at each other. But the story was Derrick Rose (30 points), electric on 2nd night of back-to-back.
Replay confirms foul on Hairston.
P.J. Hairston called for a shooting foul as third quarter expires. Refs reviewing replay.
Mayo has 18 points and is 4 for 6 from 3-point range. Just missed a good look from corner. Game tied at 77 with 5:01 left in third.
Extra long official review late in game. Trying to find out if any of Kyrie Irving's 28 points with Rose on floor.
The Other Green up to 10 points after and-1 putback. Spurs have crawled ahead by a point in this pretend game.
Who just grabbed an offensive board and score with and and-1 opp? You guessed it, JaMychal Green. He's got 10 points now.
And now J Green muscles inside for a three-point play. Makes the bonus, that's 10 points in 7 minutes.
