The last couple of minutes haven't gone smoothly for the Hoyas. Muscue-palooza. Charlotte pulls within 38-31. 23.2 sec left.
Full court pressure led to a 10-second violation. Well, it would've if refs noticed 12 sec went by before Char crossed halfcourt. Then layup
Swear I dont mean to only Hoyas tweet about Aaron Bowen. He plays, good things happen. FB alley-oop there as he sprints past all. 34-22
U8 TO: Hoyas 28 Char 19. Yes. that's lots of points for ths team this early. Trawick leads with 7.
Hoyas using energy duo of Jabril Trawick and Aaron Bowen together and it's paying off. Combined for lob dunk by Bowen. 23-13.
U16 TO: Hoyas 16 Char 8. 12-2 run for the Hilltop crew.
Key for the Hoyas: Battle of the boards. Charlotte gobbled up offensive rebounds in BB&T loss to GW. Just couldn't make shots.
Good morning froom the Verizon Center. Hoyas (6-3) host Charlotte (6-4). Both teams are better than their records indicate, I think.
So weird that in discussion of "tanking," fans think the players are trying less on purpose.
"Yeah John Wall's fast. He doesn't visit 7 billion houses in 1 night,but he's fast. He'll definitely give the Knicks some trouble." - Santa
Russell Westbrook for MVP!
John Wall’s hat game tonight. http://t.co/a7xY7s848J
I still laugh every time I hear Byron Scott call Kobe Bryant, "Black Mamba."
Neat-o-stat of the night via ESPN: The last team to play back-to-back 3 OT games was the 1951 Baltimore Bullets. Spurs matched tonight.
Wizards players have brought up finals talk more and more lately. Before the season, they talked conference finals. Confidence is growing.
Don't often hear Damian Lillard's name in conversations about elite PGs. Thinking that's a geography thing. Always a wow when I see.
Best part of this triple OT is that we don't have to watch the entire Lakers game
After this exhausting week, Pops won't play Tim Duncan and Manu until Valentine's Day.
Does Tim Duncan get next week off?
I bet Gary Williams just did a shot - or was at least offered one - after Steve Blake drained that 3-pointer.
Spurs are closing like 7-11
Good lawd. Damian Lillard was trying to turn Timmy into a poster
Bradley Beal couldn't buy a bucket all night but kept his focus, makes four clutch FTs and a big boy steal in the final seconds.
Beal Steal. Ball Game.
John Wall midrange alert.
The Wizards haven't been anywhere close to an 18-6 team tonight and yet can tie the game with two FTs with 5:05 left.
Dwyane Wade having one of those pre-LeBron 4thQ flashbacks
Heat lead 79-76 after 3Q. Nene leads all w/18 pts. Wall = 10p, 9a. Deng leads Heat w/16p.
Wall slow to get up after falling hard on drive to the basket. But he’s up to shoot his free throws with 2.7 seconds left in 3rd quarter.
If you told me Nene leads the NBA in dunks over the last week, I'd believe you.
The Heat are shooting 65.6 percent from the field and are losing 54-53.
Wizards shooting 55.6%. That's not bad. Just not the 64.5% the Heat are shooting so far.
The Professor holding class on these youngsters on the Heat
Nene vs. Hassan Whiteside is the very definition of a mismatch.
Nene is feasting on third string bigs of Miami 4-4 from the field.
I keep saying Nene should continue opening games with the second unit. Nothing changing my mind tonight.
Wizards begin their 1st 2 possessions with a 3-man weave. Don’t remember seeing that before.
Dwyane Wade just leapfrogged a security guard.
Anyone who would ever side with Azalea Banks over Action Bronson can never be taken seriously again
Love that Redskins PR/web site gets its jollies off tweeting transactions/injury updates six minutes before sending a press release. Scoops!
The NFL fined Santana Moss $22,050 for his unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and disqualification on Sunday, according to the league.
