Somebody getting tossed tonight.
Is Ibaka wearing a Breathe Right strip?
Russell Westbrook and Markieff Morris get a double-T. Westbrook #1 in NBA with 13 techs, Morris #2 with 12.
Westbrook and the Morris twins getting into it...again. Double T on Westbrook and Markieff. Russ' NBA-leading 13th of the season
Technical foul on Westbrook, his 13th of the season. If you'll recall, Westbrook got tossed in the last Thunder-Suns meeting.
Andre Roberson has his name mispronounced more than Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Kevin Durant with a 'boo-yah' ode to Stu Scott on the shoes he wore pregame http://t.co/hj79I2ewmg
Uhh... Iguodala, Draymond, Barnes, Klay... Those are good, long, active perimeter defenders. Sorry if that has gotten people mad at me.
The Los Angeles Kings have placed defenseman Alec Martinez on injured reserve retroactive to Feb. 9.
Is it just me, or has this past calendar year of television been really great? AND House of Cards comes back soon. Can't tell me nothin
Draymond Green on LeBron: "We played great defense on him. But that's why he's probably the best player in the world."
Good night Twitter world. Special thanks to the run away llamas for making my day.
How do Warriors get back to defense they were playing? Draymond Green: "You have to want to be great. And we want to be great."
Tigers trail 63-52 at the under 4 minute head-for-the-exit timeout.
I know I'm way late but this is how I see that dress. http://t.co/9PNOdKhz2B
It's official: the Chicago Bulls' record for wins will survive another season.
Earl Lloyd played his High School ball at Parker-Gray in Alexandria Virginia. Drafted in the 9th round in 1950 out of West Virginia State.
But the Warriors will have to prove that in the playoffs. The perception is all Curry/Klay, all offense, which is barely half of the story.
It's funny how much worse a 12-2 deficit looks compared to a 52-42 one even when it's the same margin.
Steve Kerr: "This is the league. You're not gonna win every game. I don't look at this as a plague."
If the jerseys were purple they'd be fire.
I guess some still presume the Warriors shoot to win games? They've played D. Even with LBJ going nuts, CLE shot 46.8%. Decent, not crazy.
Rice was noted that Justin Robinson didn't get enough shots with other guys doing what they were doing. The soph. PG had 15 on 4-for-11 FGs
Steve Kerr on Bennett Salvatore: "He said s'thing & I said something & then we hugged & made up" Said he respects Salvatore's communication
Suns looking like llamas vs llama chasers right now.
I pretty clearly see blue and gold. Am I the missing link?
Goodness the Suns look likes No. 1 seed vs a 32 seed right now
Earl Lloyd, the first black to play in the NBA as a member of the Washington Capitols in 1950, has died. He was 86.
King Rice: "Lack of respect for the game today, lack of respect for your fans & it was our seniors who decided today was the day to do it,”
Get these Suns jerseys off the TV.
And the dunk by Wright...he's hoopin
what a pretty pass from Wright
Wonder how much Verizon paid to have the scoreboard screens in the shape of a cell phone. Kinda cool. http://t.co/GeUFijS8NI
Russell Westbrook is averaging 40.2 ppg, 12.4 apg, 10.1 rpg per 100 possessions. Different animal.
As suspected, Deon Jones' numbers were high, which limited his time. Third time the type 1 diabetic had that happen during a game.
In hockey news, the only thing I can figure is that the Canucks are still mad about Dale Tallon.
I've decided it's finally time to change the Twitter bio this season. My NBA comp is currently Draymond Green. We had a great run, Boris.
Red-hot Cavs, winners of 4 straight, in Indy Friday for the final time this year. LeBron was special tonight vs GSW, scored a season-best 42
Russell Westbrook just got the biggest ovation I've ever heard him receive on the road. Times are a changing.
Other than the Spurs, the GSWs are probably the team best equipped to defend LeBron. And he still did what he did tonight. Another level.
Cavs went with game plan of putting long, athletic wings on Curry. The ball-denial and contesting his catch-and-shoots prevented rhythm
It's a fine metaphor for the season, really. Only so much you can do without a point guard.
Just returned from a Bulls charity event, " An Evening with the Bulls" proceeds to Bulls Charities to assist those in need. Incredible job!
Cavs' Kevin Love, smiling, on LeBron's performance: "It was alright."
Rider came into this game w/an edge and Monmouth never matched it. Not a no-show, but definitely not a good look with something on the line
LeBron James finishes with 42 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals and 1 block in the Cavaliers' 110-99 win over the Warriors.
So John Goble is a Ref in the NBA then?
So, should LeBron officially be included in the MVP convo, or nah?
Cavs 110, Warriors 99. Make it 18 wins in last 20 for Cavs. Make it LeBron with season-high 42. Make it Cavs on another level right now.
Lebron James is the first Cavs player w/ at least 40 points, 10 rebounds & 5 assists in a game since...... Lebron James in 2010
Cavs win 110-99 for 18th W in last 20 games, improve to 37-22. LeBron season-high 42p 11r; Kyrie 24p; Love 16p 8r; Mozgov 10p 10r
Justin Robinson compared this loss to the St. Francis loss on Dec. 23, so that should tell you the kind of night it was in West LB
nice helmet, lunardi
If Draymond makes these FTs, everyone in Oaklamd gets chalupas
A Monmouth sports reporting class sat in on the postgame presser. They got an earful as King Rice called out his senior class.
Watched the Cavs tonight .... DRose, don't even bother. See you in fall camp or IHOP, whichever comes first.
Steve Nash and Brian Shaw should hang out and exchange tips on how to relate to the kids with cool slang buzz words.
Y'all do realize that Bill O'Reilly once wore that dress, right?
RIP Earl Lloyd. The NBA 's first African American player. Your legacy will be treasured and respected with admiration forever .
Thunder 5-point favorites on the road in Phoenix without Kevin Durant. A lot has changed for both teams in past few weeks.
Cavs fans loudly mocking Steph Curry after that last missed 3. Curry and Klay Thompson just 10-of-30 shooting. Cavs' D comes thru again.
So uh, how 'bout those Cavs?
Kevin Love fit in really well on that shot.
That Curry airball, plus Love 3, will definitely do it. Curry is 5-of-17. Missed some open ones, but Cleveland did a nice job containing.
This, right here, might be the most lovable the Tigers have been all season. No point guard. SMU getting every call. But hanging in there.
Curry is fourth in the league in total second-half points. So far, he has 4 second half points
LeBron's 11 rebounds tie a season high
Stephen Curry back-rims the 24-footer, and that should do it. Warriors will be 33-4 with this starting lineup.
Austin Nichols went to the bench and everything flipped. you figure it out. bizarro world
I wish I can remember the dude who tried to use advanced stats to argue Steph Curry was a better offensive player than LeBron
Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings was extremely apologetic and regretful for his comments to Wade Baldwin in postgame handshake line.
Here's a post-game TNT studio lock: Charles shakes his head and says, "You know what, Ernie? I think Cleveland wins it all this year." Lock.
Can’t forget Kevin Durant. Reigning MVP. Another killer like MJ & Kobe. Some will say LeBron. Putting on a show tonight w/ 42 vs Warriors.
Sometimes it looks like LeBron just gets bored. And he's got 42 vs the team with the league's best record. Cavs up 107-94 with 2:53 left.
Tigers tie it up, 41-41. Who needs a stinking point guard!
LeBron w/ season-high 42, after high floater in post over Draymond Green. Cavaliers up 107-94, 2:53 left. Curry/Thompson never got rolling.
If Steve Kerr had taken the Knicks job, he'd have a win in Cleveland this season.
LeBron is varsity playing against JV tonight.
LeBron James season high 42 points
Season-high 42 pts for LeBron
With that floater, LeBron James has a season-high of 42 points.
I somehow avoided twitter during the start of this whole thing, so when my girlfriend asked me my opinion, I thought she was messing w/me.
And if the Warriors have to play catch up--like now--they'll go small to go faster and spread the court.
MVP chants for LeBron
A few people saying Russell Westbrook is next in line. Might be. I see some MJ/Kobe in Damian Lillard. Cold-blooded w/ game on the line.
Warriors at 42.9 percent shooting. They are 2-5 when they shoot below 44 percent. The two wins: at OKC (w/o KD and Westbrook), at PHI
There is no NBA player that I appreciated meeting, interviewing & spending time with than Hall of Famer Earl Lloyd. Class. Humble. Pioneer.
Love can't post up Dray Green, and that's not a diss to Love. Blake Griffin can't either
And he's up
Blue and black, or maybe dark brown. y'all are crazy.
Seriously though, explain what it means that I see white and gold!!
I picture Westbrook watching this game and leaning back in his chair in the locker room with evil laughter.
Breaks my heart to hear my friend & Hall of Famer Earl Lloyd passed. Lloyd was the first black player in NBA history. World lost a great man
I love Russell Westbrook's Mountain Dew ad so much.
Steve Kerr said he would be mindful of Warriors playing 4 in 5. Curry & Thompson have played just 29 minutes each, with 5:42 left.
Immediately after MJ called it a career in Chicago I got to witness Kobe following in his footsteps in LA. Incredible. Who’s next??
LeBron remains laying down during this timeout. Three Cavs went over to help him up and he waved them off
Can’t believe how spoiled I’ve been as a basketball fan. Watched the end of Magic’s reign in LA to MJ’s dominance to Kobe Bryant era.
Memphis going with the air guitar contest during the break. When play resumes, they'll try air point guard.
Kyrie Irving as a secondary scorer/playmaker is terrifying, because he's definitely got No. 1 talent and instinct
If I was at this Bulls charity event tonight I'd ask Thibs what color the dress is.
Kedren Johnson fouling out with 18:54 left is simply unbelievable
So LeBron is having his best game this season (arguably) but his back is clearly bothering him. He's laying on the floor instd of bench
D'Marnier Cunningham, with three fouls, will have to go the rest of the game.
And Curry is back in.
Congrats to Tyler Haws, BYU's newly minted all-time leading scorer
And yet here we are with those pesky Dubs, depiste Splash Bros at 10-for-25 and rash of missed FTs as a team, only down nine with 8:32 to go
Kedren just got a foul AND a tech. So he's gone.
If anyone can bring the Warriors back its Steph Curry. My MVP.
Markel Crawford will not be returning to the game. And to think, Shaq hated Marcus Kennedy before all this.
Kyrie Irving is coming back in.
Stephen Curry is checking back into the game.
LeBron on stage. LeBron on national TV. LeBron dropping the mic . LeBron says MVP this. Beep Beep . Goodnight .
I would assume Curry's coming back in here for one last run at this.
Final: Rider 63, Monmouth 60. DiLeo's last gasp clangs off the rim and that's a gut-punch loss. Lost opportunity any way you slice it.
Hide and watch and listen how LeBron, an afterthought before the game, becomes meaty part of MVP conversation after it...
Down 11 early in the fourth, have missed 5 free throws in the last few minutes... sort of amazing GSWs are still in this.
Tonight's LeBron's third 40-point game of the season. Cavs were 1-1 in his first two.
David Blatt in 2015 is Erik Spoelstra in 2011. He was the problem before there was no problem.
LeBron with his 67th career 40-point game.
Kyrie's shoulder highlights why Cavs should be on lookout for backup PG upgrades. Delly's solid but not a guy you want starting in playoffs.
Monmouth has one final chance here, down 3 with 3.0 seconds to go. They don't deserve to go to overtime, but they might anyway
I could come up with a bunch of informative things about this Cavs game, but it's really about one thing: Cleveland has LeBron. GS doesn't
LeBron James' season high is 41. He now has 40.
Justin Robinson turns the ball over on a drive as he went up and looked for a cutting Tilghman, who wasn't ready. Good look, IMO.
Cavs acting like a 12-point lead is insurmountable.
Cavs 90, Warriors 78 (end 3) LeBron James has 38 points -- three more than Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson combined.
LeBron James has 38 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists entering the fourth quarter.
Cavs up 90-78 through 3Q. LeBron 38p on 13-for-21 5r 4a; Kyrie 20p; Mozgov 10p 10r; Love 10p; T.Thompson 8p 7r.
Cavaliers lead Warriors, 90-78, after three quarters, led by LeBron's 38. Curry & Thompson are a combined 10-of-25 from floor.
I don’t think LeBron Jr. would approve of all this shooting LeBron Sr. is doing.
Warriors can't complain about fouls and miss FTs
The slightest of contact is getting a whistle right now. Forty-five fouls called between the teams, which is too many
Every time LeBron breathes right now, the walls of the Q contract and expand... Soon, he'll pluck bullets from midair.
For what could be a Finals preview, I was expecting more noise in Cleveland. Am I missing something?
Teddy Okereafor with two freebies to give Rider a 60-56 lead with 59 seconds left. Some huge Monmouth misses at the line here wait
Curry leaves. LeBron comes in. That feels like a planned moved by Blatt
LeBron's season high of 41 appears to be in jeopardy
Strange game, in that only LeBron James & David Lee are shooting better than 50 percent, and it's already 86-76 w/ 1:07 left in third
If UCLA gets into the NCAA tournament with that record that devalues the tournament.
LeBron just broke out the MJ shrug after hitting a 3 to give him 36 pts for the game on 12-for-18 shooting.
Curry out earlier than his normal 2nd-half rest. Might play the whole fourth.
Robinson for 3, Monmouth to within 2 with 1:35 left
Curious to see how Cleveland's defense shows up in the 4th quarter against these Warriors. It will be a bit telling both ways.
Cousins is doubtful tomorrow with a variety of maladies. If Spurs can't halt their slide then ....
That's the half, 30-28. Kedren, D'Marnier both have three fouls, Pookie out.
By the way, if you want to see what I look like with two guys screaming at each other on either side, watch the @ystl replay at 11 tonight.
People who see the dress as white and gold don't believe in analytics.
Webber has to explain to us why we should be impressed with how hard both teams are playing. I can 't wait to hear.
Wild night, players going down, ref going down. Memphis hanging in there, trailing SMU 30-28.
The young Barnes would have dunked that ...
Shawn Valentine coast to coast, plus one, after a no call down the other end. Rider 58, Monmouth 51, at the under-4.
Free throws: Cavaliers 22/23. Warriors 9/11. Fouls aren't all that different, 14 to 11. Cleveland more aggressive.
Those seem to be MVP chants for Mozgov
Free-throw shooting is killing both sides tonight. Robinson and DiLeo have each missed a pair recently.
This is why it's easy to see LeBron closing the gap in the MVP race. Lot of season left to play and LBJ/Cleveland playing really well.
This is LeBron's third break tonight. In Dec., he wouldn't have been able to sit out in game like this. What a statement game
Shaq is carrying this team, which is something I never thought I'd type.
These players are too good for the refs. Things are happening too quickly for the whistles.
Stephen Curry, all 180 pounds of him, trying to take a charge from LeBron.
Not sure what was odder - LeBron unleashing a 35-footer - or expecting us to believe that Steph Curry knocked him over.
Those llamas already have a book deal, a record deal and a reality show slated this fall on Bravo. AK
LeBron is cooking and is as animated as we've seen him on the court since that Toronto win the Cavs had back at The Q early on.
LeBron had this kind of game in Golden State last season, right before All-Star break. Was 14-of-26 in that one for 36, plus game-winner.
King Rice rolling with Brice Kofane, who has four fouls with 5:55 left. Rider up, 56-49.
LeBron with 31 points in 22 minutes.
Apparently Susan Berkman wrote a suspense novel three years before she was murdered http://t.co/4271jTtg1O
Warriors aren't good enough to beat LeBron on the road when he's playing like this. Positive note: Nobody is.
Steph Curry might be the only guy in the league today who gets that blocking call against LeBron. Cavs looking sharp against the Dubs.
Jalen Cannon went for 26 & 15 for St. Francis, and became school's all-time leading scorer.
LeBron James is letting everybody know that Stephen Curry may be the MVP favorite, but he's still the game's best player.
Did CWebb just say LeBron pulled up for a 50-ft jumpshot?
St. Francis Brooklyn beats LIU-Brooklyn in OT, 74-69, for their 9th straight win. Now 21-9, 15-2 NEC, which starts its tourney March 4.
LeBron James has 31 points ...on 14 shots ... in 22 minutes.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr wilding on referee Bennett Salvatore http://t.co/I1u8xUjAf7
LeBron has 28 points on 9-of-12 shooting and just dished his fourth assist. He’s played 18 minutes. Basically: http://t.co/awvegOUgX2
After lengthy investigation, Robert Mueller concludes nobody on Twitter ever saw the dress.
Steve Kerr is just too intense. (/kidding)
Imagine if Kerr had grabbed Salvatore's arm like Bennett just grabbed Steve's...
Thought the dress thing was a joke until I asked my roommate what he sees. Now we got a blood feud in the house. Signing off to watch hoops.
Steve Kerr puts jacket back on.
As they go to commercial looked like Steve Kerr was either heading to 2nd T or Bennett Salvatore would get his first, grabbing Kerr's arm.
I think the Cavs are going to be just fine. Not sure about the dress, however.
Steve Kerr is cruising towards a second technical.
Steve Kerr, unplugged
Rider leads Monmouth, 54-47, at the under-8 with Justin Robinson going to the line for two. Teddy Okereafor has a game-high 18 for Rider.
LeBron is having his "Let It Be" rooftop concert -- showing everyone he can still do it...
Steve Kerr jacket removed
Angry Steve Kerr is the funniest Steve Kerr.
I love when LeBron reminds us.
LeBron is off to a 9-for-12 start to the game. Has 28 pts. Cavs up 11 on the Warriors. Has twice as many pts as his MVP competition, Curry
Alvin Gentry posted up Steve Kerr and now held him back from going after the refs after no call for Stephen Curry.
Bill Belichik says dress was gold but became blue because climatic conditions and rubbing process.
Warriors get 2nd technical, this one on Draymond Green. Cavs on top, 68-61
It's one of those nights when even LeBron's iffy shot attempts go in. He's got 26 on 11 attempts.
Doug McDermott's meniscus surgery in Dec. lasted roughly 20 minutes and he exited without crutches. Told Rose's could be similarly short.
Life. Justin Robinson coast-to-coast to pull Monmouth to within 6 with 8:55 left. Timeout Rider.
When I look at the dress picture, I see annoying Internet arguments.
Xavier Lundy, who is giving it to Monmouth, will sit with four fouls and 9:25 to play.
Not sure why Sixers signed pair of 6-foot PGs after all guys were 6-6+. Can't switch everything now on defense, so have to change approach.
Everyone is shooting with 10:10 to play. Settle in.
Robinson, Tilghman, Jones, Kofane, Tillman for Monmouth out of the timeout. Let's see if anything changed after Mickens went in.
I was going to make a joke where I said what color the dress was but made it a Sulia link but then I found out Sulia is shut down. RIP Sulia
