By the way, @dwainprice just used the word "swag" in a tweet. Pigs are flying somewhere in a frozen over Hades.

Bob Cooney

Brandon Davies with three pointer 5 seconds into shot clock. Brown hunched shoulders and walked away from that. Not happy

John Reid

Jeff Withey has plenty of work ahead. He hasn't done much in the preseason.

Tied at 31causes a Malone TO 11:42 2nd Qtr, Kings @ Spurs #SacKings #KingsTalk #NBA @CSNAuthentic

Jeff McDonald

"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?

Jonah Ballow

The #Knicks do believe in shooting 3s. Tonight: 11-of-24.

Dwain Price

This Aminu kid is going to turn into a real nice offseason pickup for the #Mavs. He's got some versatility and swag to his game.

Chris Herring

Knicks struggling on D tonight vs Bucks, allowing 60% shooting from the floor. NYK went 4-15 last when allowing opponents to shoot 50%.

Paul Garcia

Bryce Cotton with back-to-back baskets. 1st, mid-range contested jumper, then just drove into the paint for the layup with contact.

Chip Crain

29-29 and that feels right.... Leggggo

Earl K. Sneed

Aminu comes in and hits corner trey. He's really been working on expanding his range and it's slowly starting to show. #DALvsMEM

Jeff McDonald

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

Michael Dugat

Why's Vince gotta do Dirk like that? That was a pretty funny moment.

Dan McCarney

Wow, Reggie Evans just POPPED Ginobili with a screen. Didn't even see it coming. Offensive foul tho...not sure about that one.

Earl K. Sneed

Mekel opens the 2nd with a score. Dude is playing with a lot of confidence right now. #DALvsMEM

Hairston has nine points off six shots.

Bill Herenda

Kings however limiting Spurs to 43% from floor, 29% from three point range, Kings 65% FG% #SacKings #KingsTalk #NBA @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

Scott Cacciola

Good news for Knicks: Their offense looks pretty good. Bad news for Knicks: The Bucks are shooting 58%.

Mike Monroe

Boogie Cousins 4-4 FG, 5-8 FT, 4 RB in 1st qtr. vs. #Spurs

Alex Raskin

#Jets not concerned with Percy Harvin's past. Everyone else is. on.wsj.com/1oo3JHh via @WSJ

Rick Bonnell

I'm guessing you won't see a lot of Maxiell-Vonleh front court in a regular-season six-point game.

Fred Kerber

Wow what are odds. They just showed guy on Garden screen at #Knicks game with the same last name as the #Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo

Scott Cacciola

Could be assessing so many different games right now. RT @Nets Daily This is awful basketball

Earl K. Sneed

After one, the @Dallas Mavericks & Grizzlies are tied at 27-all. 8 pts for Tyson early. #DALvsMEM

John Reid

Rookie Patric Young has entered the game. But rookie guard Russ Smith has not got off the bench yet.

Paul Garcia

1Q: Preseason Spurs 27, Kings 31. Boogie 13 points, Parker 9 points. JaMychal Green 6 points. SAC shooting 65%, SA 43%.

Jeff McDonald

Kings lead Spurs 31-27 after 1Q. DeMarcus Cousins has an estimated four billion points.

Bill Herenda

Vs NBA opponents in preseason Kings allowing 108 pts per game, Sac up 31-27 on Spurs End 1st Qtr, Cousins 13 pts #SacKings #KingsTalk #NBA

Bob Cooney

Plumlee has 11 points and 13 boards in 19 minutes. He's so much bigger and stronger than anyone Sixers have

Tom Moore

With 8:33 left in 3rd quarter, no #Sixers player has more than 7 points (E Williams and Wroten have 7). Have more TO (15) than assists (13).

Barry Jackson

From earlier: 21 Dolphins nuggets (and a free soft drink): miamiherald.typepad.com/sports-buzz/20…

Jason Jones

Kings lead Spurs 31-27 after the first quarter. Kings shot 65 percent.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk just got met at the rim by Vince Carter. Two (old) guys that still play (kinda) above the rim. haha #DALvsMEM

Dan McCarney

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.

Dwain Price

#Mavs and #Grizzlies are tied at 27-27 after the first period.

Paul Garcia

Only if SA is willing to get rid of 1 million in salary for Daye. RT @texinwa: @Paul Garcia U think Green has a chance to make the team?

KC Johnson

Taj Gibson led NBA in 4th-quarter minutes last season. Don't see that happening with Thibodeau closing with Noah/Gasol 2nd straight game.

Tom Moore

Ball went into stands and #Nets fan didn't want to give it back. Eventually did as much of crowd booed. #Sixers #NBA

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston upset he didn't get a call in the lane. I think he has a good point.

Tim Bontemps

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.

Alex Raskin

Fan refused to give ball back to the ref. That fan got a mixed reaction. #Nets

Dan McCarney

Boogie jabbering at the ref after dubious foul call on the Kings: "That's two blocks at the rim. Stop it."

Jeff McDonald

With 0 of 4 start, Ginobili up (or down?) to 4-of-19 shooting this preseason

Keith Pompey

The fans doesn't want to give the ball back. Dude, this is not baseball. SMDH!

Mike Mazzeo

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.

Vincent Goodwill

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

Chuck Swirsky

Regardless of the outcome..the story line for the Bulls....Rose- Rose- Rose!

Paul Garcia

JaMychal again, this time bursts into the open court after Boogie free throws. Teammates found Green as he drew the foul. Lots of energy

Earl K. Sneed

Mekel has been rewarded with his 1st quarter minutes after his 19 pts & 9 assists Saturday. #DALvsMEM

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans are leading 78-62 with 5:37 6o play.

Random sighting: @Vivek Ranadive and @cgkings are sitting courtside at Barclays tonight. NBA BOG meetings this week.

Chuck Swirsky

95-88 448 left 4th....Cavs

Jeff McDonald

JaMychal Green is going to be a heck of an intriguing prospect for the Austin Spurs this season. I mean this as a compliment.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets delay-of-game warning.

James Ham

Interesting. With Stauskas ailing, Malone has turned to Ray McCallum early against the Spurs.

Paul Garcia

Spurs get a steal on the inbounds pass, Marco feeds Jeff Ayres for the one handed slam - fans go nuts.

Dwain Price

I thought that 3 by Vince Carter was going to be nothing but net. But it was everything but net.

Paul Garcia

That jumper by JaMycahl Green. Really good release, just made sideline mid range shot.

Eric Pincus

Perfunctory Kobe post to push my fantasy tweets lower on my timeline - so Kobe is root of all evil/good, yes/no?

Dan McCarney

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.

Jeff Goodman

Florida lands in-state forward Keith Stone, sources confirm to ESPN. Under-the-radar guy. Jamal Mashburn-type. 1st reported by @EvanDaniels.

Sam Amico

LeBron raised hand to come out. Coach David Blatt obliged with Matthew Dellavedova. May be it for the King (18 pts) until regular season.

KC Johnson

This is absolutely the right move to play Rose. He needs to play stretch minutes in back-to-backs.

Tas Melas

Taj Gibson's dunks are always nasty -- @LeighEllis might be on to something with the idea that Taj should be in the Slam Dunk contest.

Jason Lloyd

LeBron looks like he's done, acknowledges cheering crowd as he exits with 18pts, 7rebs, 6asts in 31 minutes.

Earl K. Sneed

Vince Carter checks in and overshoots the rim on a trey attempt. Welcome back. #DALvsMEM

Bob Finnan

That might be it for LeBron. Played a preseason-high 31 minutes. Had 18 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown will likely lead the league in most timeouts during first two minutes of quarters during 2014-15 regular season. #NBA #76ers

Mike Prada

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.

Fred Kerber

Other things that keep me up nights: Do the #Knicks use an isosceles triangle after halftime or just stay with a regular triangle?

Nick Friedell

Rose and Gasol come into the game for the last 6:29. LeBron gets a standing O from Columbus crowd and waves.

Jason Jones

Ray McCallum is getting an early look tonight. He's in with Sessions, Landry, Derrick Williams and Cousins.

Buddy Grizzard

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.

Paul Garcia

Coaches huddle during last timeout consisted of conversation between Pop, Messina, Boylen, Udoka, & Tim Duncan.

Sean Highkin

Good sign that Rose is playing a fourth-quarter shift on both nights of a back-to-back.

Bob Cooney

Sims with 5 fouls in 12 minutes. He's out and Plumlee immediately gets offensive follow. Pissed Brown calls quick time out

Chip Crain

18-20 and Marc Gasol has shot JR. Ewing yea only old twitter people get the reference bang bang

Gary Lee

Paul George responded to ESPN’s report about being “turned off” to sign with the Lakers because of Kobe Bryant. lakersnation.com/lakers-rumors-…

KC Johnson

Here comes Rose for final 6:29.

Eric Pincus

Last fantasy post of the day - I was 11 pick of 16 - difficult spot - where I got Melo

Chris Herring

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%

Eric Pincus

My league is very specific in strategy - so while I don't particularly love my team - may be competitive

Eric Pincus

Fantasy squad: Melo - Lawson - Gay - Pau - Crawford - Isaiah - Tristan - Henson- Augustin - Morrow - Bennett - Kaman - 8 starters - odd team

Earl K. Sneed

Sweet feed from Devin to a trailing Jefferson for the layup. @Dallas Mavericks have a 20-18 lead with 3:06 in the 1st. #DALvsMEM

Eric Pincus

Had my annual fantasy league draft - NBA - Saturday - deep league - head to head - ended up with a bizarro team - needs some work

Steve Popper

Just heard @HaleMark has a beard, which I have to suspect is one of these: http://t.co/bxEll8pgL1

Paul Garcia

There's JaMycahl Green's mid-range jumper that's been kind of consistent considering it's the preseason.

Jeff McDonald

JaMychal Green and Bryce Cotton getting some first-quarter run.

Jason Jones

Rudy Gay is active and moving fine after rolling his ankle last Friday in practice (5 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists)

John Reid

Austin Rivers has played 16 minutes tonight, 2-of-5 from field for 6 points with two assists.

Bill Herenda

Collison 8 of 10 from 3 point field goal range this preseason #incendiay Kings @ Spurs #SacKings #KingsTalk #NBA @CSNKings

When you foul Korver in the act of shooting, he's usually only going to the line for 1.

Chip Crain

12-17 Tyson Chandler with 7 PTS in this game

Tom Moore

#Sixers Nerlens Noel dribbling and shooting 3-pointers/long jumpers at halftime. Sounds like he'll practice with team tomorrow & play Thurs.

Kamenetzky Brothers

On a completely unrelated note, bummed to hear The Cat & Fiddle is closing. Celebrated my 30th there. AK la.eater.com/2014/10/20/701…

Fred Kerber

Just wondering: have the #Sixers been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs yet?

Paul Garcia

Bryce Cotton and JaMychal Green getting some first quarter minutes with 4 minutes left on the clock.

Sean Kelley

As we thought, @Anthony Davis has sprained right wrist. Suffered on alley oop att in 1st half. Listed as questionable to return. #Pelicans

Sam Amico

By mid-season, that Kyrie-to-LeBron alley-oop fastbreak pass off the backboard is gonna work. And I promise you'll love it.

Earl K. Sneed

The plan was obviously to get the Chandler brothers involved early. Take your pick. Tyson has 8 pts & Parsons has 6 pts. 18-12 @Dallas Mavericks.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller with 15 points and six rebounds.

Chris Miller

Anthony Davis has a right wrist strain his return is questionable. #WizardsTalk

Cavaliers 87-75 843 left 4th

Jeff McDonald

Kings shooting 90% (9 of 10). That will win a lot of preseason games.

Chris Haynes

#Cavs trying to get fancy. Kyrie Irving attempts to throw off the glass for LeBron James. The Bulls fouled their way out of that highlight.

Keith Pompey

This marked the fourth consecutive game where the #Sixers opponent is playing the second night of back-to-back games.

Jorge Castillo

Anthony Davis sprained his right wrist and is questionable to return.

KC Johnson

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.

Tim Kawakami

Chip Crain

Gasol with 6 and we already say place him in the hall of fame, he is ballin tonight

Earl K. Sneed

Tyson and Z-Bo are chirping already. These guys know it's preseason, right?!

Nakia Hogan

Anthony Davis has a sprained right wrist. He is "questionable" to return. But given the game, that's highly unlikely.

Chip Crain

This game break brought to you by @Beno Udrih http://t.co/8llMXAilw4

Jason Jones

Ball and players are moving much better tonight against this version of the Spurs (No Duncan, no Leonard).

Keith Pompey

#Sixers don't have an answer for Plumlee. The #Nets center is shooting 4-for-5 and has 8 points and 10 rebounds at the half.

Earl K. Sneed

Not sure Chandler Parsons at backup PF matched up against against Z-Bo is going to end well. #DALvsMEM

Dwain Price

#Mavs starters lead 15-10 before Devin Harris comes in for Dirk Nowitzki as the 1st substitute.

Chip Crain

10-13 and Grizz start with the hey Dallas we will show you nothing and you can care but we don't offense

Buddy Grizzard

Plus-minus notables at the half: Starters: Horford +22, Korver +13. Bench: Schröder plus-19, Sefolosha +18, Scott +15.

Jimmer Fredette has played only three minutes tonight.

Earl K. Sneed

Sweet crossover and drive by Jameer Nelson. Parsons then scores on the break. @Dallas Mavericks up 15-10 early. #DALvsMEM

Jason Jones

Kings are up 18-12, 5:55 left in the first quarter. Kins shjooting 88%, already have assists. Collison has 3 assists.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs' starting 5 of Dirk, Tyson, Monta, Parsons and Jameer look pretty good thus far.

Paul Garcia

Nice pump fake into a midrange jumper by Ben McLemore there over Danny Green. Really solid shooting form.

Derek Bodner

Never saw this one coming RT @Bob Cooney: Moultrie made pull up 20-footer earlier, but Brett Brown isn't happy he tried it again.

Dan McCarney

Pop getting himself into regular season form, calls semi-angry timeout after defensive breakdown. Spurs trail 18-12 midway through 1Q.

Alex Kennedy

Derrick Rose looks incredible. He has 27 points (11-16 from field) and 5 rebounds in 18 minutes. Look at this play: vine.co/v/ObtbDjaUXhu

Bob Finnan

Bulls guard Derrick Rose has game-high 27 points. Anderson Varejao has 22 for #Cavs

Kamenetzky Brothers

As long as you’re not getting all semantic-y about this. AK RT @LakerGang17: I agree. No doubt he was a star but not a superstar.

John Reid

Pelicans winning easily, but they have made only 3-of-12 3-pointers and have 16 turnovers.

Mike McGraw

Can't skip steps. Haven't you been listening? RT @Nick Friedell: Man, let's just fast forward to the end of May right now.

Chris Haynes

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.

Jeff McDonald

This Spurs starting five getting worked over defensively ... with no Leonard, Duncan, or Splitter it's what you expect

Jason Lloyd

End 3Q: #Cavs 82, Bulls 75. Varejao 22p,8r; Irving 19p,4a; LBJ 14p,6r,6a. CHI Rose 27p; Gasol 9p,6r. CLE 49%, 9TO; CHI 41%, 6 TO

Chuck Swirsky

Cavs 82-75 after 3.... Bulls 40% fg

Dan McCarney

Now it's "Good hustle Boogie!" and you don't hear that every day so I'll allow it...

Chip Crain

Preseason its like dating in 8th grade, you want to learn, but does it really matter?

Chris Haynes

Tony Snell gets a three-pointer to fall after a couple of bounces on the rim at the buzzer to end the third quarter. #Cavs lead 82-75.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 82, Bulls 75, end third Q.

Dan McCarney

Going to be awesome having a UK fan sitting two seats away yelling "You da man Boogie!" for the next 2 1/2 hours...

Nakia Hogan

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

Earl K. Sneed

Make that 7-0 @Dallas Mavericks after that Chandler-Chandler connection. Tyson is involved early. #DALvsMEM

Al Iannazzone

I remember when the Steelers used to have a stout defense.

Ben Standig

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.

Dan McCarney

Anderson with the straightaway 3 for SA's first points. If he can hit that consistently...

Mike Monroe

I know it's just pr5e-season but Kyle Anderson seems very confident shooting the 3-ball

Fred Kerber

Beg to differ with Carmelo Anthony. Sure looks like he could win scoring title in #Knicks offense -- especially if he faces #Bucks 30 times

Charles F. Gardner

HT: Knicks 61, Bucks 56. Melo has 17 points for NY. Mayo leads Bucks with 15.

Chris Herring

*Carmelo finishes first half with 17 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists. Shot 5-of-12.

Paul Garcia

Diaw finds Anderson at the top of the 3-point arc, Kyle nails his first long range shot.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk slipped on the court and no one knew what happened. He bounced back up OK and the crowd took a collective sigh of relief. #DALvsMEM

Dwain Price

Man it looks weird seeing Vince Carter not in a #Mavs uniform. #Grizzlies

This Baynes - Boogie matchup could end up being interesting...

Dan McCarney

Boogie Cousins in the house tonight, author of one of the great quotes in NBA history, to Tim Duncan: "(Expletive) you're good."

Tom Moore

#Sixers shot 2-for-15 from 3-point land in first half after going 3-for-15 Saturday vs. Magic. Down 7 (49-42) to #Nets.

John Reid

All of Pelicans starters have played 20 minutes or more.

Paul Garcia

Kyle Anderson has a fun assignment tonight, defending Rudy Gay.

Rick Bonnell

Hawks shot 57 percent from the field, 50 percent from 3 in first half.

Jeff McDonald

Our other guy @Mike Monroe is sitting in Sean Elliott's seat tonight. Hope Boogie Cousins doesn't get them confused ...

Dan McCarney

So it appears like no Bonner tonight and why are we even here?

Paul Jones

True...whole season to be played huh? "@libaanstar1: @Paul Jones If they can beat us..."

Mike Prada

This is the luxury of the Cavs. Kyrie’s on a scoring binge and everyone else freely lets him finish it off.

John Reid

Ryan Anderson delivering another strong preseason performance - 11 pts and 8 rebounds off the bench.

Ben Standig

Did I hear Phil say the Wizards/Wittman considered using Otto and Temple together in the backcourt?

Steve Popper

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.

Jason Lloyd

#Cavs open 10-pt lead on Kyrie 3ptr. Highly entertaining game. Kyrie going off while Rose is sitting

Chris Herring

MSG crowd cheers excitedly as officials give former Knick Jason Kidd a technical foul.

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.

Nick Friedell

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.

Chuck Swirsky

Cavs 75-65 401 3rd Irving controlling the tempo with 18

Chris Herring

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.

Dan McCarney

Duncan/bacon (nice combo)

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Hawks 58, Hornets 43

Chris Herring

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

Keith Pompey

#Nets lead 46-39 with 1:51 left in half. Davies having another solid game with 5 points on 2-2 shooting

Jeff McDonald

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.

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.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford's pet peeves will always be silly fouls, lack of transition D and not guarding the paint.

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans are leading Wizards 60-38 with 5:49 left in 3Q.

Darren Wolfson

A false piece of info. out there on the #MNTwins: Molitor was NOT at the organizational meetings. Doug M. was - all MiLB coaches are always.

Zach Lowe

The Jennings/ Knight trade might end up being about Khris Middleton. (An exaggeration, but, still nice job by MIL insisting on KM in deal)

Ben Standig

Nene and Garrett Temple shooting a combined 6 of 10. All other other Zards, 8 of 31. Seraphin, Silas 0-for-7.

Mike Mazzeo

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

Kamenetzky Brothers

Again, making my case for me. AK RT @frkshw32: yes Pau was a star in his own right but he also has never won a playoff game without Kobe.

Rick Bonnell

Flip side on Zeller. He sits with 3rd foul after 13 1/2 minutes. Remember Clifford's generic "needless fouls" comment pre-game?

Sam Smith

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

Jody Genessy

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.

Chris Vivlamore

Dennis Schroder using his speed tonight. Has eight points late in second. #ATLHawks

Jaryd Wilson

This foreign exchange student from Germany grew up in the same home town as Dennis! http://t.co/ZswfT6dyR9

John Reid

Pelicans start third quarter on 11-5 run. Dominating.

Chuck Swirsky

Hope you're enjoying the broadcast...if you're not listening ...ok...

Lenn Robbins

Was that an 'Old School' bounce pass by D-Will or just great fundamental basketball? Either way, school is in #Nets

Alan Hahn

Offense/ball movement has not been an issue here. #Knicks have 12 assists on 18 FGM. Shooting 48%.

Jonah Ballow

Big difference this year from THJ. That hesitation pull-up & drive straight to rim. Great 1st step. #Knicks

John Denton

Check out facial expression for @Elfrid Payton when he sees 8yr old fan Dylan Smith dribble in @Orlando Magic Open Practice http://t.co/GOfvEvIZfC

Jason Lloyd

For a game that doesn't mean anything, these two teams sure playing like tonight matters.

Bob Cooney

Drew Gordon on Joe Johnson not a good matchup

Josh Newman

Expectations for SMU were through the roof off 27 wins. Then, Emmanuel Mudiay went to China and now Markus Kennedy isn't eligible. Brutal.

Mark Kreidler

Missed #SFGiants manager Bruce Bochy's interview with us? Catch it again in 4 minutes on @ESPN1320 or stream it on espn1320.net/player

Sean Highkin

United Center going to be so turnt up on Halloween.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller 6-of-7 from the field for 13 points so far.

John Reid

Omer Asik looking for his shot more in the post. That's a good thing.

Roland Lazenby

Kidd: Knicks will be Fisher's team, not Jackson's - goo.gl/alerts/XUIB #GoogleAlerts

Michael Lee

Derrick Rose is out there taking er'body's lunch money, huh?

Chuck Swirsky

Rose has been spectacular 27points

Alan Hahn

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.

Earl K. Sneed

Find me afterwards! RT @ashleyjordan: @Earl K. Sneed I wanted to take a pic after the high five line but they made us leave!!!! So sad!!!!!

Paul Jones

May 28th 2015?...lol "@KC Johnson: When does David Blatt put LeBron on Rose?"

Kamenetzky Brothers

This is what I mean when I say playing w/Kobe means getting no credit. AK RT @EvansPapa10: Pau was not a star, great talent but not a Star

Casey Philip

Great showing from @STLouisRams and area chefs at Taste of the NFL http://t.co/FsTrlb5TSf

Tom Ziller

[this actually makes me like Kobe more and Nash less] http://t.co/lGk4EBEdMy

Josh Newman

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…

KC Johnson

Gasol and Dunleavy saved Rose from a T there.

Charles F. Gardner

Parker guarded Melo last two Knicks possessions. A Wolters three from corner puts Bucks up, 45-42.

Ben Standig

One of these people is Colt McCoy. The other one is @JPFinlayCSN. Which is which is the question. http://t.co/mVErhjmxYl

Nakia Hogan

Looks like trainers taped Anthony Davis' right wrist. He's flexing it now. Again, doesn't look serious.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller far more confident (and reliable) this season taking 18-footers.

Nakia Hogan

Trainers are working on on Anthony Davis' right wrist or hand. Doesn't look serious. Ryan Anderson in for A.D.

Chris Haynes

I know Derrick Rose is who he is but this is ridiculous. Somebody has to challenge that guy.

Nick Friedell

Whole crowd is buzzing now as Rose just blew past Irving again. This is something.

Mike Wise

Pelicans devouring Wizards at outset of the third quarter, 53-29, in Baltimore. Looking for big second half from Andre Miller.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Rose has Kyrie Irving on skates.

KC Johnson

When does David Blatt put LeBron on Rose?

Brian Mahoney

Had forgotten how completely lost I am when 76ers use players' Twitter handles in tweets. I barely know their real names.

Sean Highkin

One could even say he's having a "Kirk Hinrich against the Hornets" type game.

Steve Popper

Not big on preseason stats, but what Derrick Rose is doing tonight to Cleveland probably is a good sign.

Lenn Robbins

The Basketball Gods are Grinning after watching D-Will and AK47 play give and go, give and go. #Nets lead #Sixers 35-29 @barclayscenter

Jason Lloyd

#Cavs have tried Irving, Waiters and Delly on Rose. 0 for 3. It'll be LeBron's turn when games matter

Sean Highkin

Rose looks goooooooooooood.

Bob Cooney

Nice two-handed block by McDaniels. He may lead the team this year in most "wow" plays.

Nick Friedell

Rose racing up and down the floor -- dominating offensively. I feel like I just flipped on an old movie.

Steve Popper

I mean, I know that puts me ahead of Ted Cruz, but... RT @HeyCor: That's Comet meatloaf! Popper for President! http://t.co/14ZeD3WQLB

Fred Kerber

Not saying the #NBA preseason is awful but I'm kinda missing hearing questions about Derek Jeter's farewell tour

Kevin Pelton

The big three serving as effective decoys for Anderson Varejao tonight.

Keith Pompey

Great block by McDaniels.

Paul Garcia

Then again, last year Jeff Ayres would also work on his 3-point shooting in warm-ups and never took an attempt.

Eric Pincus

Lakers' Julius Randle can take hard knocks, wants to dish some out (with @Mike Bresnahan ) latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Mike Mazzeo

12-70 #Nets vs. 2014-15 #Sixers: Who wins?

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks are shooting 59%, Hornets 35%

Paul Garcia

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.

John Reid

Can't be overlooked that the Wizards don't have most of their top players playing tonight - John Wall, Paul Pierce.

Dwain Price
