The West was 4-0 against the East again tonight.
This man is supposed to follow me all game tonight. And he's a Spurs fan! But he doesn't hate me (unless he does). http://t.co/IOwCvxGJgU
The Knicks are the NBA's ultimate reality TV.
Doc Rivers getting emotional now in his post-game in Boston is great TV.
DeAndre Jordan just airballed a free throw, which is only his second-most embarrassing miss of the night.
Jared Sullinger using his verticality to stop the Clippers at the rim. Wait, what?
Curious: If the NBA required each team to have an All-Star rep like MLB does, who would be the Raptors' guy?
Watched Gators-KU on plane last night. Wish UF had one more shooter, but can't wait to see this team w/ Chris Walker.
Hibbert vs. MIA since May: 22.4 pts, 9.8 rebs, 57 FG%, 23.8 PER | vs. everyone else? 13 pts, 9.4 rebs, 48 FG%, 18.8 PER.
Prediction: 47 Ronin will be about 3 1/2 times as bad as 13 assassins.
The Heat have shot 20+ threes 112 times in the Big Three era. Tonight was their single worst percentage: 19 percent.
Roy Hibbert: "We saw them in the playoffs. We felt if we added some pieces, things would be different... We'll see."
Roy Hibbert: "I'm really looking forward to playing against Greg (Oden)."
Roy Hibbert: "I'm not going to jump the gun. It's just one game."
David West: "Guys were out there already talking about next week." Who? "Everybody."
David West: "We're just trying to be dominant at home... and build toward our goal, the top seed in the East."
David West: "I don't think burning out or peaking too soon is going to be a conversation with this group."
LeBron on Roy: "He takes a lot of teams out of their games... They allow him to use his verticality more than any other player in league,"
LeBron: "it's a long season. You don't hold your head low after one loss."
LeBron: "I thought we had some really good looks."
LeBron: "We brought it tonight. They made a couple more shots."
Spoelstra on Hibbert: "He made some tough shots."
Spoelstra: "They have a good defense. We know it. We have to get to our game."
Spoelstra talks about "getting stuck taking some quick shots."
84 pts is a season low for the Heat after scoring just 87 against the Bulls to start the road trip.
Indiana beats Miami, 90-84, to extend lead in conference to three games. LeBron 6-of-16. Wade 6-of-14. Hibbert w/ 24. George w/ 17.
FINAL: Pacers 90, Heat 84. Pacers lead by three in the loss column. Heat finish 2-2 on road trip to the tundra.
Roy Hibbert is a problem for the Heat that is becoming tougher and tougher to solve.
None of the Heat players even took a step back before that dunk. Went from amused by Pacers today, to frustrated by them.
Ruling overturned. No goaltend. Jump ball. It's 86-81.
Ray Allen back in for Chalmers after that near turnover.
Wonder what he's thinking as Hibbert goes off http://t.co/kbpvkR1QN6
Ray Allen tonight: 0-4, 0 pts.
West just threw an extra elbow at Chalmers on his way back down the court. Wonder if league looks at it.
Miami has scored 47 since 1Q. Consistent themes in this building: Allen struggling, 3Q stagnation, frustrated by Hibbert's lack of fouls.
Here come the Cavs ...
Paul George was celebrating his three-pointer in Spoelstra's face instead of getting back on defense...
Game might have ended with Scola beating everyone -- with Bosh closest -- to that rebound.
LeBron just needs to keep going at Hibbert. If he doesn't get calls, they'll lose, but it's better than chucking Js.
Bosh coming back in for final 6:19. Heat finishing with Wade, Cole, Allen, LeBron and Bosh.
Rough, rough night for Ray Allen. Not the first he's had here with the Heat.
LeBron James has just 2 FTA. Not going to win many games vs. Indy's D without basket attacks.
Indiana has closed down that screen/roll with Andersen all night.
So does LeBron get a second-half break since this is not a statement game?
Short rest for LeBron. He's at scorer's table.
Ridiculous playmaking by Paul George right there. So improved.
LeBron on the court in his warmups screaming about a foul call on Norris Cole. Just one of 82, you know.
LeBron came close to getting a technical from the bench. Jumped out of his seat.
Indiana has another of its third quarters, leads Heat, 68-64 entering 4th. LeBron with 12/8/5, but Miami won't win w/ standstill Js.
Heat settling for jumpers, look fatigued after a lockdown first quarter.
Pacers 68, Heat 64 entering the 4Q. Big finish time.
Pacers 68, Heat 64 going into the fourth. Figure on 12 compelling minutes to follow.
Must be killing Udoinis Haslem not to be part of this.
Indiana sees Allen on George, and you know where it's going.
Miami has 12 points in the quarter.
Two more airballs, up to five.
Paul George with his first field goal of the game with 3:51 left in the 3Q. Pacers 62, Heat 57
Paul George's first field -- w/ 3:51 left in the third quarter -- gives Indiana a 62-57 lead. Miami's early, quick offense has disappeared.
And just like that, it's the Pacers by five.
MIami's help was quicker there on Hibbert. Once he gets position and starts extending elbow, it's over.
First lead for the Pacers, 58-57, comes with 6:12 left in the 3Q. This despite Paul George with just four pts and Indy with 17 TOs.
This -- third quarter -- is where Miami has tended to let games go in this building. Ball stops moving.
Hibbert might have only one rebound, but he's stepping up, now with 17 points.
Heat with five turnovers. Pacers with 17.
Pacers 17 turnovers, Heat 5.
