By the way, @dwainprice just used the word "swag" in a tweet. Pigs are flying somewhere in a frozen over Hades.
Brandon Davies with three pointer 5 seconds into shot clock. Brown hunched shoulders and walked away from that. Not happy
Jeff Withey has plenty of work ahead. He hasn't done much in the preseason.
"If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in your pants ..." --- you're telling me this is NOT the correct lyric?
Knicks struggling on D tonight vs Bucks, allowing 60% shooting from the floor. NYK went 4-15 last when allowing opponents to shoot 50%.
Bryce Cotton with back-to-back baskets. 1st, mid-range contested jumper, then just drove into the paint for the layup with contact.
29-29 and that feels right.... Leggggo
Not sure what it means when Spurs are within 2 points, JaMychal Green and Bryce Cotton have been their best players and this isn't Las Vegas
Why's Vince gotta do Dirk like that? That was a pretty funny moment.
Wow, Reggie Evans just POPPED Ginobili with a screen. Didn't even see it coming. Offensive foul tho...not sure about that one.
Hairston has nine points off six shots.
Good news for Knicks: Their offense looks pretty good. Bad news for Knicks: The Bucks are shooting 58%.
I'm guessing you won't see a lot of Maxiell-Vonleh front court in a regular-season six-point game.
Rookie Patric Young has entered the game. But rookie guard Russ Smith has not got off the bench yet.
1Q: Preseason Spurs 27, Kings 31. Boogie 13 points, Parker 9 points. JaMychal Green 6 points. SAC shooting 65%, SA 43%.
Kings lead Spurs 31-27 after 1Q. DeMarcus Cousins has an estimated four billion points.
Plumlee has 11 points and 13 boards in 19 minutes. He's so much bigger and stronger than anyone Sixers have
Kings lead Spurs 31-27 after the first quarter. Kings shot 65 percent.
End of 1: Kings lead 31-27. Cousins with 13/4. Parker leads the Spurs with 9 points (3-3) and two assists. Rest of team is 6-18.
Taj Gibson led NBA in 4th-quarter minutes last season. Don't see that happening with Thibodeau closing with Noah/Gasol 2nd straight game.
P.J. Hairston upset he didn't get a call in the lane. I think he has a good point.
The ball went into the stands and the fan that caught it mercifully tried to make the game come to an end. Sadly, she didn't get her wish.
Boogie jabbering at the ref after dubious foul call on the Kings: "That's two blocks at the rim. Stop it."
With 0 of 4 start, Ginobili up (or down?) to 4-of-19 shooting this preseason
The fans doesn't want to give the ball back. Dude, this is not baseball. SMDH!
A ball went into the stands. A fan would've give it back. Think the guy should've just left. Maybe they wouldn't have had a replacement.
This thing with Kobe is so, so fascinating. So many different angles to dissect, and I don't know if anyone's view is wrong, good or bad
Regardless of the outcome..the story line for the Bulls....Rose- Rose- Rose!
JaMychal again, this time bursts into the open court after Boogie free throws. Teammates found Green as he drew the foul. Lots of energy
Pelicans are leading 78-62 with 5:37 6o play.
95-88 448 left 4th....Cavs
JaMychal Green is going to be a heck of an intriguing prospect for the Austin Spurs this season. I mean this as a compliment.
Hornets delay-of-game warning.
Interesting. With Stauskas ailing, Malone has turned to Ray McCallum early against the Spurs.
Spurs get a steal on the inbounds pass, Marco feeds Jeff Ayres for the one handed slam - fans go nuts.
I thought that 3 by Vince Carter was going to be nothing but net. But it was everything but net.
That jumper by JaMycahl Green. Really good release, just made sideline mid range shot.
Perfunctory Kobe post to push my fantasy tweets lower on my timeline - so Kobe is root of all evil/good, yes/no?
Second mid-range J of the quarter for J Green. Too bad the Spurs don't have a spot; he'd be nice to take a flyer on.
LeBron raised hand to come out. Coach David Blatt obliged with Matthew Dellavedova. May be it for the King (18 pts) until regular season.
This is absolutely the right move to play Rose. He needs to play stretch minutes in back-to-backs.
LeBron looks like he's done, acknowledges cheering crowd as he exits with 18pts, 7rebs, 6asts in 31 minutes.
That might be it for LeBron. Played a preseason-high 31 minutes. Had 18 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists
Striking how few plays are actually being run for Kevin Love. Seems to be adjusting well, but I’d like to see more plays for him.
Rose and Gasol come into the game for the last 6:29. LeBron gets a standing O from Columbus crowd and waves.
Ray McCallum is getting an early look tonight. He's in with Sessions, Landry, Derrick Williams and Cousins.
Every Hornets starter has a positive plus-minus except Cody Zeller. What's left of the Hawks' lead came against Charlotte's B-team bench.
Coaches huddle during last timeout consisted of conversation between Pop, Messina, Boylen, Udoka, & Tim Duncan.
Good sign that Rose is playing a fourth-quarter shift on both nights of a back-to-back.
Sims with 5 fouls in 12 minutes. He's out and Plumlee immediately gets offensive follow. Pissed Brown calls quick time out
18-20 and Marc Gasol has shot JR. Ewing yea only old twitter people get the reference bang bang
Here comes Rose for final 6:29.
Last fantasy post of the day - I was 11 pick of 16 - difficult spot - where I got Melo
Positive: NYK assisted on 77% of their 1st-half makes, w/ just 5 TOs. Melo had 17, 6 rebs & 5 assists. Negative: NY allowed MIL to shoot 56%
My league is very specific in strategy - so while I don't particularly love my team - may be competitive
Fantasy squad: Melo - Lawson - Gay - Pau - Crawford - Isaiah - Tristan - Henson- Augustin - Morrow - Bennett - Kaman - 8 starters - odd team
Had my annual fantasy league draft - NBA - Saturday - deep league - head to head - ended up with a bizarro team - needs some work
Pelicans say PF Anthony Davis has right wrist sprain. Will not return.
I love Brooklyn, I really do. But I get tired of hearing 'Where Brooklyn at?' or 'Brooklyn Standup' whenever I'm in the BarclaysCenter. LOL
More Americans have been married to Kim Kardashian than have died from Ebola.
There's JaMycahl Green's mid-range jumper that's been kind of consistent considering it's the preseason.
JaMychal Green and Bryce Cotton getting some first-quarter run.
Rudy Gay is active and moving fine after rolling his ankle last Friday in practice (5 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists)
Austin Rivers has played 16 minutes tonight, 2-of-5 from field for 6 points with two assists.
When you foul Korver in the act of shooting, he's usually only going to the line for 1.
12-17 Tyson Chandler with 7 PTS in this game
Bryce Cotton and JaMychal Green getting some first quarter minutes with 4 minutes left on the clock.
By mid-season, that Kyrie-to-LeBron alley-oop fastbreak pass off the backboard is gonna work. And I promise you'll love it.
Cody Zeller with 15 points and six rebounds.
Cavaliers 87-75 843 left 4th
Kings shooting 90% (9 of 10). That will win a lot of preseason games.
Anthony Davis sprained his right wrist and is questionable to return.
Rose at 17:49 after 3 quarters. On one hand, finishing a back-to-back. On other, needs to play in 4th quarters after making debut last nite.
The other day Mavs owner Mark Cuban was talking about a flat-jumper contest between Parsons and Villanueva. He could add Monta to that list.
Gasol with 6 and we already say place him in the hall of fame, he is ballin tonight
Tyson and Z-Bo are chirping already. These guys know it's preseason, right?!
Anthony Davis has a sprained right wrist. He is "questionable" to return. But given the game, that's highly unlikely.
Ball and players are moving much better tonight against this version of the Spurs (No Duncan, no Leonard).
10-13 and Grizz start with the hey Dallas we will show you nothing and you can care but we don't offense
Plus-minus notables at the half: Starters: Horford +22, Korver +13. Bench: Schröder plus-19, Sefolosha +18, Scott +15.
New AT&T Center DJ playing a hit song from my favorite gangster rapper, Will Smith.
Jimmer Fredette has played only three minutes tonight.
Kings are up 18-12, 5:55 left in the first quarter. Kins shjooting 88%, already have assists. Collison has 3 assists.
Nice pump fake into a midrange jumper by Ben McLemore there over Danny Green. Really solid shooting form.
Pop getting himself into regular season form, calls semi-angry timeout after defensive breakdown. Spurs trail 18-12 midway through 1Q.
Pelicans winning easily, but they have made only 3-of-12 3-pointers and have 16 turnovers.
Kyrie Irvin erupted in the third scoring 15 of his 19 points in the quarter. Derrick Rose was out for much of it but it's still production.
This Spurs starting five getting worked over defensively ... with no Leonard, Duncan, or Splitter it's what you expect
Cavs 82-75 after 3.... Bulls 40% fg
Now it's "Good hustle Boogie!" and you don't hear that every day so I'll allow it...
Preseason its like dating in 8th grade, you want to learn, but does it really matter?
Going to be awesome having a UK fan sitting two seats away yelling "You da man Boogie!" for the next 2 1/2 hours...
It's preseason, we try to care but it's hard to care, bring on the regular season
Spurs start shooting 12% from the floor, Kings 100%. SAC leads by 9.
... from the field to go with 4 rebounds, 2 assits and a steal
Mavs pitching a shutout. Up 7-0.
At end of 3Q: Pelicans 69, Wizards 48
7-0 Dallas and Jackie Moon involes "everybody got somebody"
I'm waiting on official Anthony Davis update. It doesn't look serious. He's on bench with wrist wrapped in a towel. No obvious signs of pain
I remember when the Steelers used to have a stout defense.
Oh, wait, that's actually happening now. Got it. I'm a big Otto guy, but he's no SG. In this situation, Witt doesn't have many options.
Someone has on a "Champs don't Cramp" shirt courtside
Anderson with the straightaway 3 for SA's first points. If he can hit that consistently...
I know it's just pr5e-season but Kyle Anderson seems very confident shooting the 3-ball
HT: Knicks 61, Bucks 56. Melo has 17 points for NY. Mayo leads Bucks with 15.
*Carmelo finishes first half with 17 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists. Shot 5-of-12.
Diaw finds Anderson at the top of the 3-point arc, Kyle nails his first long range shot.
This Baynes - Boogie matchup could end up being interesting...
Boogie Cousins in the house tonight, author of one of the great quotes in NBA history, to Tim Duncan: "(Expletive) you're good."
All of Pelicans starters have played 20 minutes or more.
Kyle Anderson has a fun assignment tonight, defending Rudy Gay.
Hawks shot 57 percent from the field, 50 percent from 3 in first half.
So it appears like no Bonner tonight and why are we even here?
This is the luxury of the Cavs. Kyrie’s on a scoring binge and everyone else freely lets him finish it off.
Kidd gets T'd up and Knicks crowd loves it. Now Langston Galloway with 4-point play for Knicks.
Jason Kidd just got a T in preseason game. That wasn't part of his advice speech to Derek.
Moultrie made pull up 20-footer earlier, but Brett Brown isn't happy he tried it again.
Ryan Anderson delivering another strong preseason performance - 11 pts and 8 rebounds off the bench.
Did I hear Phil say the Wizards/Wittman considered using Otto and Temple together in the backcourt?
Huge ovation at MSG for a Jason Kidd technical foul. I'd imagine if he got a 2nd and got to watch the football game he'd cheer.
MSG crowd cheers excitedly as officials give former Knick Jason Kidd a technical foul.
Kidd gets T'd up. Crowd cheers.
To be clear, there will be no dress code at the meetings when I'm a free agent. Basketball shorts and gold chains are preferred, actually.
Derrick Rose has painted basketball masterpiece & I've definitely seen Cavs look better. Yet they lead 75-65 in 3Q. Kyrie has come to life.
Irving going off now -- only problem for him is that Rose isn't in the game. Man, let's just fast forward to the end of May right now.
Cavs 75-65 401 3rd Irving controlling the tempo with 18
Melo often played the entire first and third, and then had God-awful shooting numbers in the 4Q while leading the NBA in minutes last year.
Duncan/bacon (nice combo)
Halftime: Hawks 58, Hornets 43
Another thing I like abt Fisher: Sitting Melo out w/ 2 mins left in 1Q. Gives him extra rest b/t qtrs, & can bring him back earlier in 2Q
SCOONIE PENN. Oh man there’s a name I haven’t heard in forever.
Y’all talking about how Pau “never won a playoff game” w/o Kobe are doing an awesome job anti-recruiting next year’s FA class, too. AK
Well that was efficient. We outscore Charlotte 34-19 in Q2 to race into the locker room with a 15 point lead. Dennis with 8 points on 3/3.
"pettiness" is a real understatement http://t.co/NgzL7riIOK
I once covered a Wake-Maryland game after a 3-day blizzard in D.C. The crowd at Philips Arena tonight probably has fewer fans.
You can't have statement games in October -- but you can serve up reminders. That's exactly what Rose did tonight. He's still really good.
Clifford's pet peeves will always be silly fouls, lack of transition D and not guarding the paint.
Pelicans are leading Wizards 60-38 with 5:49 left in 3Q.
The Jennings/ Knight trade might end up being about Khris Middleton. (An exaggeration, but, still nice job by MIL insisting on KM in deal)
Nene and Garrett Temple shooting a combined 6 of 10. All other other Zards, 8 of 31. Seraphin, Silas 0-for-7.
FWIW, Bojan is shooting 17.6 percent from 3-point range in the preseason (3-for-17, 1 for his last 13). Adjustment from shorter 3-point line
Flip side on Zeller. He sits with 3rd foul after 13 1/2 minutes. Remember Clifford's generic "needless fouls" comment pre-game?
FIBA World Cup MVP and starting USA guard Kyrie Irving looking skinny. Back side basically kicked by his backup, Derrick Rose: 27 in 18 mins
Excited that the Hot Rod Hundley Media Center will get a soft-serve ice cream machine this year. ESA is now a Top 5 NBA dining destination.
This foreign exchange student from Germany grew up in the same home town as Dennis! http://t.co/ZswfT6dyR9
Pelicans start third quarter on 11-5 run. Dominating.
Hope you're enjoying the broadcast...if you're not listening ...ok...
For a game that doesn't mean anything, these two teams sure playing like tonight matters.
Drew Gordon on Joe Johnson not a good matchup
Expectations for SMU were through the roof off 27 wins. Then, Emmanuel Mudiay went to China and now Markus Kennedy isn't eligible. Brutal.
United Center going to be so turnt up on Halloween.
Cody Zeller 6-of-7 from the field for 13 points so far.
Omer Asik looking for his shot more in the post. That's a good thing.
Derrick Rose is out there taking er'body's lunch money, huh?
Rose has been spectacular 27points
The Bucks are scorching the Knicks defense with 58% shooting and 5/11 from 3PT. All perimeter. Only 12 of 45 points in the paint.
[this actually makes me like Kobe more and Nash less] http://t.co/lGk4EBEdMy
As @GumpHutch pointed out, SMU's Markus Kennedy is out a while w/grades. Monmouth heads to Dallas on Nov. 30. collegebasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/10/20/rep…
Gasol and Dunleavy saved Rose from a T there.
Parker guarded Melo last two Knicks possessions. A Wolters three from corner puts Bucks up, 45-42.
Looks like trainers taped Anthony Davis' right wrist. He's flexing it now. Again, doesn't look serious.
Cody Zeller far more confident (and reliable) this season taking 18-footers.
Trainers are working on on Anthony Davis' right wrist or hand. Doesn't look serious. Ryan Anderson in for A.D.
I know Derrick Rose is who he is but this is ridiculous. Somebody has to challenge that guy.
Whole crowd is buzzing now as Rose just blew past Irving again. This is something.
Pelicans devouring Wizards at outset of the third quarter, 53-29, in Baltimore. Looking for big second half from Andre Miller.
Rose has Kyrie Irving on skates.
When does David Blatt put LeBron on Rose?
Had forgotten how completely lost I am when 76ers use players' Twitter handles in tweets. I barely know their real names.
One could even say he's having a "Kirk Hinrich against the Hornets" type game.
Not big on preseason stats, but what Derrick Rose is doing tonight to Cleveland probably is a good sign.
Rose looks goooooooooooood.
Nice two-handed block by McDaniels. He may lead the team this year in most "wow" plays.
Rose racing up and down the floor -- dominating offensively. I feel like I just flipped on an old movie.
The big three serving as effective decoys for Anderson Varejao tonight.
Great block by McDaniels.
Then again, last year Jeff Ayres would also work on his 3-point shooting in warm-ups and never took an attempt.
Hawks are shooting 59%, Hornets 35%
Don't know if he'll do it in a game just yet, but Baynes was heading out to the 3-point line during shoot-around. Made a few, missed a few.
Can't be overlooked that the Wizards don't have most of their top players playing tonight - John Wall, Paul Pierce.
