What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
It was a telling sign when a sign reading CLIPPERS WIN was being taken to storage during the fourth quarter. No need for it because there was no postgame celebration, only consternation. latimes.com/sports/clipper…3:21 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
FWIW, the Clippers say they’re not practicing tomorrow. Got a rematch with Portland on Friday up there. – 3:21 AM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
“They’re creating that identity of who they are and how we’re going to play and it’s like, they want more, they want more and they want more. Their attitude has been trying to quench that thirst”
#Cavs smother Clippers in third straight win

Reggie Jackson, who has started this season shooting 23-71 said, “I’ve got to do better. I haven’t shot well since we started the season and I got to find a way to be more consistent honestly. I got to find a way to put the ball in the basket, make plays for others.” pic.twitter.com/pHwkO9AOBg2:05 AM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Job one or Eric Bledsoe is to get into the paint and he’s converted there. Outside of the key, though, it’s been a rocky shooting start. He’s 17-42 overall this season: pic.twitter.com/7ARcQx98Pu2:01 AM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Paul George: “After a night like this, the only way is to get better.”
He said his legs had felt “heavy” but that they would get used to a heavier minutes workload.
PG also felt Clippers lack of movement made them easy to defend. Lot of talk about stagnant offense. – 1:29 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Cleveland might be onto something: “That was different,” PG says. “Their 3 and 5 switching … different.” – 1:25 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Paul George says that his legs felt heavy tonight. Asked him how concerned he is with that with Clips headed on a flight to PDX for Friday night, and PG said he’s not as concerned since he anticipates getting used to the grind of playing ~35 minutes on a nightly basis. – 1:24 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Reggie Jackson expressed that he needs to be better, more consistent. Acknowledges that he hasn’t shot the ball well.
Credited his strong third quarter due to team defense and “getting lost within the offense.” – 1:19 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Reggie Jackson: “I gotta find a way to put the ball in the basket and make plays for others and get a great shot for the team, every possession.” – 1:18 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Reggie Jackson surmises: “They beat us up pretty good tonight.” – 1:15 AM

Reggie Jackson: “Yeah they beat us up pretty good all-around tonight.” – 1:14 AM

Is #Cavs resurgence real?
Cleveland smothers Los Angeles, wins third straight game against playoff contender

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Tonight vs Cavaliers was the 30th regular season game in Clippers’ franchise history where the team attempted at least 40 3s.
It was also the worst percentage from 3 (9/41, 22.0%) of those 30 games. – 1:09 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers were absolutely crushed on the glass tonight 57-36.
But even when they did secure offensive rebounds… Clippers missed 8-of-9 second chance scoring opportunities. Overall, Cavs outscored Clippers 19-3 on second chance points tonight. – 1:05 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Ty Lue: “If a team scores 92 points on your home floor, most nights you should win the game.”
Most nights. Tonight, though, the Clippers’ offense uncharacteristically failed ’em: 31 for 87 (35.6%) from the field, 9 for 41 ( 22%) from 3. – 1:01 AM
Joe Gabriele @CavsJoeG
More #Cavs: Garland, 16pts, 5-8FG, 2-3 3ptFG, 6asst; Mobley, 12pts, 10reb, 2blk; Rubio, 15pts, 6-13FG, 3reb, 3asst; Love, 10pts, 10reb; Allen/Markkanen, combined 17reb. pic.twitter.com/nvffHkOkq81:00 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Lue repeatedly praising Cavaliers for their length.
They made Michael Porter Jr. look ordinary Monday night in Denver.
Maybe, just maybe! They’ll be alright with their perimeter defense. – 1:00 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Cavs 92, Clippers 79 | Final | Ty Lue with something of an understatement: “Just wasn’t a good flow for us to the game.” – 12:58 AM
Joe Gabriele @CavsJoeG
#Cavs run win streak to 3 – go wire-to-wire over Clips, start roadie 2-0 with tasty 92-79 win in LA; CLE holds LAC to 36%FG, 22% 3ptFG, P. George to 12pts on 6-20FG; CLE dominates on boards, 69-44; FTs: CLE, 23-27, 8-13; Sexton, 26pt, 12-20FG, massive lefty dunk in 1H, 7reb, 3stl pic.twitter.com/PirpqH089O12:57 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Darius Garland’s teammates missed 16-of-17 3s tonight, and the Cavs never trailed tonight at STAPLES Center. – 12:55 AM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
That wraps things up here at Staples Center. Another impressive win for the #Cavs tonight, as they beat the Clippers 92-79.
A strong defensive performance from Cleveland, as they held the Clippers to shooting 31-of-87 (35.6%) from the field and 9-of-41 (22%) from 3. – 12:54 AM

if it makes you feel any better, Lakers fans, the Clippers just dropped their pants and splattered 79 total points all over their home floor against the Cleveland Cavaliers. – 12:48 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
You have to go all the way back to 2014 to find another game where Clippers lost to an opponent that made 3 3s or fewer like Cavaliers did tonight.
Clippers are 1-3 and fail to break 80 points for the first time since Mavs Massacre. They’ll wrap up October Friday in Portland. – 12:47 AM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Heck of a start to the season for the Cavs, who have knocked off Atlanta, Denver and now the Clippers in the first week of the regular season. Hasn’t taken long for Evan Mobley to make an impact in Cleveland. – 12:46 AM

The Clippers rarely scored in double digits last season (see below) but they have 72 with 4 minutes to play against Cleveland, trailing by 14. pic.twitter.com/qYOKNiu11712:40 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
If anyone needs to beat traffic from Staples, now is the time to do it. No need to even wait for the Chick Fil’A (courtesy of Jarrett Allen).
Clippers wasted 70 points from Paul George starting 0-2, and now they’re going to counter a decent defensive showing with pitiful offense – 12:39 AM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Having a big who can defend the interior, protect the rim at a high level, be good in the drop and hold up in iso basically ensures you a top 10 type defense. Evan Mobley has been a franchise guy from jump this season, and he’s made Cleveland a ton better – 12:27 AM

Thunder come from 26 down to beat the Lakers.

Back to back Rubio buckets have the Cavaliers back up double digits, and it’s getting late early for the Clippers.
Cavaliers lead 78-68 with 10:26 left in the game. Rubio has outscored Clippers bench 15-11. – 12:23 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
I grossly underestimated how good a fit Rubio would be with Garland and Sexton. – 12:23 AM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Ty Lue takes a timeout after Ricky Rubio gets a couple buckets to go and push Cleveland’s lead to 78-68. Clippers are shooting 37% and 23% from three (8-34). Only 1 turnover since halftime. – 12:23 AM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
Rubio — Spanish for “closer.” – 12:22 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Despite Batum/Jackson doing work… Cavaliers built their halftime lead and the other Clippers missed all nine of their shots.
Cavaliers up 72-64 entering the final quarter of play, and yeah, this is looking like Monday night — for the Cavs, not the Clippers – 12:19 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Nico and Reggie were the only Clippers to score in the third, going 9 for 17 between them.
The rest of the Clippers: 0-9 in that period.
Clippers cut it to within three points twice but going into the fourth trailing, 72-64. – 12:18 AM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
It appears here in the arena and in the box score, they have given Kevin Love two of the points Evan Mobley should have from free throws a few minutes ago. Either that or I’m already road weary. – 12:16 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Evan Mobley out here singlehandidly wrecking opposing possessions – 12:12 AM

Second time this half Clippers have cut #Cavs lead to 3 points. First time, veterans Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love entered to help give LA the Heisman. But Clips keep coming. Can Cleveland hold the rope? – 12:09 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Forgettable quarter for George, but Jackson has come alive in the third quarter along with Batum.
12 points in the period, as #ReggieVision might finally be re-activated. Windows 11 update, I’m telling ya…
Cavaliers holding onto a 65-62 lead, 3:24 left in the quarter. – 12:08 AM

A bit on the local guy with two blocks and five boards so far tonight: With fanfare, former USC star Evan Mobley visits L.A. ocregister.com/2021/10/27/wit…12:07 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Paul George has as many fouls now (4) as buckets. He’s now out with Clippers trailing 63-56, 5 min left in 3rd quarter. – 12:04 AM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
It looked like Batum spent the last break in play joking with Sexton about the dunk Collin put on the vet in the first half. Batum was pointing to how far out Sexton jumped from and made a mock-shock expression. – 12:01 AM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs Lamar Stevens, who was a bundle of energy and hustle in the first half, comes into to help reignite the team. – 12:00 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Nicolas Batum’s first two games: 7 points in 45 minutes
Nicolas Batum in first half: 7 points in 16:17
Nicolas Batum in first 4:39 of third quarter: 9 points
The French Knight (h/t @BSieman) has been the driving force of “try harder” Clippers, who are now down only 56-53 – 11:59 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
The Clippers still have never led tonight, but Nico Batum’s 10 points in the third quarter have pulled them within 56-53. He’s 4-8 from three. – 11:57 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
Paul George just shook one 7-footer, only to realize there was another waiting for him in the paint. – 11:55 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Nicolas Batum (11 points post-dunk) is first Clipper in double figures tonight – 11:54 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
The fan who called Collin Sexton trash repeated loudly that he is still trash during the last break, to which Sexton shook his head and made a “me?” face. Then he drove the lane for an and-1. He has 16 points. People in the fan’s section might start asking him to be quiet. – 11:54 PM
Joe Gabriele @CavsJoeG
Little bit of a sloppy end to 2Q, but #Cavs looking strong again – lead Clips, 47-40, at H; aggressive #Cavs holding LAC to 37%FG, 14pts in 1Q; points in the paint: CLE, 30, LAC, 15; 2nd chance pts: CLE, 12, LAC, 2; Sexton, 13pts, 6-10FG, including dunk of the year, 6reb, 2stl. pic.twitter.com/zOXvfOLDoX11:43 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Cavaliers missed more than half of their 31 attempts in the paint in first half.
They STILL made more baskets in the paint (15) than Clippers *attempted* (8/14) – 11:39 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Blazers have committed just six turnovers after coughing up 30 at the Clippers. – 11:36 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
For the first time this season, Clippers trail at halftime. It could be a lot for them, as they only had four first halves last season with a lower FG% (36.6) and three games with more TOs (11).
Cavaliers up 47-40 after leading by as many as 15. And they’ve only made TWO 3s! – 11:36 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Halftime: Cleveland 47, Clippers 40
It could have been worse for L.A. after a 14-point first quarter and shooting 36% overall, 18% from 3 (4-22) and with 11 turnovers. – 11:36 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
A couple of turnovers there at the end of the first half for the #Cavs, but they hold a 47-40 lead over the Clippers.
Collin Sexton led the team in scoring with 13 points, followed by Darius Garland with 10 points and 4 assists. – 11:36 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Cavs 47, Clippers 40 | Half | Inauspicious start for LA, which shot 15-41 (36.6%), and yet as only as large as 15 and now is only seven. PG is 4-12, with all of his makes coming after the 5:04 mark in the second quarter. – 11:36 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
After missing his first six shots, Paul George has made four of his last five to bring the Clippers within 47-40 after trailing by as many as 15 in this first half. – 11:33 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Besides bad shooting, this game highlighting Clippers inability to get to FT line. Cavs only had one team foul in first 10 minutes of second quarter. – 11:33 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Kevin Love can still jump, and Cavs bench was loving that one…
(post script: Reggie Jackson has scored) – 11:30 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers are fortunate that Cavaliers aren’t a more high-powered offense. Cavs up 41-31 with 3:54 left in first half. Reggie Jackson hasn’t scored. – 11:27 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
It took until 5:04 left until the end of the half, but Paul George has finally scored – 11:24 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Nico threw his head back there, glad he got one to go at last. He’s 1-3 tonight (all 3s).
… got PG going too, he converts a reverse.
Clippers trail, 40-27. – 11:24 PM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
Also have a podcast recorded with @matt_pennie on the rookie class. Yeah, Evan Mobley is showing a lot of the stuff we talked about there. He’s been ridiculous so far tonight. – 11:20 PM
Marla Ridenour @MRidenourABJ
Hope a photographer got a shot of #Cavs Collin Sexton dunking on 6-8 Nic Batum. That’s a keeper – 11:20 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
This actually might be worse than post-Christmas Mavericks offense. Clippers shot 34.2% FGs in that one.
They’re *up* to 27.6% FGs and are completely incapable of running offense, finishing in the paint, or making the few open shots available.
Cavs up 36-23, 6:54 left in half. – 11:19 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
Another game, another #Cavs poster. This one from Collin Sexton on Nicolas Batum. – 11:17 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I don’t know how many times I have to say this, but here it is one more time: Collin Sexton is a very good basketball player. – 11:17 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Sexton has THREE yaaammmms already, and he’s topped each one gotdam – 11:15 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Uh, so I think Sexton definitely heard the fan who’d been yelling at him that he was “trash” the last few breaks in play. He absolutely hammered that dunk. – 11:15 PM
Jason Quick @jwquick
Memphis leads Blazers 57-51 and lead could (should?) be bigger. Blazers’ effort better than at Clippers, but everything seems like grind. Dame (2-for-11) and CJ (4-of-12) are off and not sure Nurk received memo regular season is here. Simons (14) continues to look much improved. – 11:12 PM
Ralph Lawler @Ohmeomy
Clippper 1st Q v Cleveland was dismal. Young Cavs playing so much harder.
Clips trailing 23-14 and it could be worse. – 11:11 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Cavs 23, Clippers 14 | End 1 | Clippers shot 4-21, 1-11 and turned it over eight times. Cleveland’s serious length seemed to do its befuddling job.
Lucky for LA, Cleveland was pretty pedestrian: 9-26, 2-6, with five TOs. – 11:09 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
#Cavs defense held the Clippers to 14 points in the first quarter. Clippers shot 19% from the field and 9.1% from 3. Cavs forced 8 turnovers and scored 9 points off those turnovers. Evan Mobley also had two blocks here in the fourth.
At the end of the first, #Cavs lead 23-14. – 11:09 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
This is very much a Cavaliers game to start. Their last two wins came without breaking 100 points, and they’re the ones dominating the possession battle (rebounds/turnovers).
Cavs up 23-14 at end of one. Clippers had one first quarter last season with fewer points (Dec. 27, DAL) – 11:09 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
One quarter in…Cavaliers 23, Clippers 14 pic.twitter.com/jh66JNZRVI11:08 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
The Clippers are whiffing on free throws now. This qualifies as a horrific offensive quarter.
4-21 FG, 1-11 from 3, 8 turnovers – 11:05 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs Evan Mobley already has two blocks tonight, which is the same number of blocks I have administered on Twitter this week. – 11:02 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Good question posed here on press row: Will this be the lowest-scoring game ever?
The Clippers just got it into double-digits, 15-11 — (they’re 4-17, 1-8), so they’ll probably beat the 1950 record:
Fort Wayne Pistons 19, Minneapolis Lakers 18 – 11:02 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
#Cavs Darius Garland is doing a nice job of passing and dishing out assists while also taking his own shots. He has two assists (and a couple of other nice passes that didn’t work out) and is 2-of-3 from 3. – 10:59 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
It feels like Evan Mobley’s arms extend from Los Angeles to Temecula – 10:59 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers offense is in hell. 18.8% FGs, missed 7-of-8 3s, twice as many turnovers (6) as buckets.
Cavaliers are at 28.6% and should be up double digits. Alas, Cavs up 15-9 with 2:52 left in first quarter. – 10:59 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs have held Clippers to nine points in the first nine minutes. – 10:58 PM

The Clippers have more turnovers (5) than field goals (3) nearly eight minutes into this game. – 10:55 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Evan Mobley being a destructive force on opposing offenses a week into his career is legitimately impressive. – 10:54 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Trailing 10-6 with 5:39 to play, the Clippers sub in TMann and Luke, who’ll try to get it to double figures, I presume. – 10:53 PM

The Clippers and Cavaliers are 0-7 combined from three five minutes in. As in the Clippers’ first three games, those misses are predominantly on open looks. – 10:50 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs Darius Garland is making some slick passes tonight. Not all of them have been handled well by teammates or finished. But really impressive how he’s fitting the rock into tight spaces. – 10:48 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Final: Thunder 123, Lakers 115
The Lakers fall to 2-3. They led by 26 points in the first half before losing the game by eight — a 34-point swing. Russell Westbrook’s last-second ejection summarized the Lakers’ ugly, frustrating evening.
Up next: vs. Cleveland on Friday. – 10:37 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Pacers are now 1-4, their worst start since 2014-15, when they finished 38-44 in a largely Paul George-less season. Tough schedule so far and only one truly bad performance, but certainly not the start to the season this team was hoping for. – 10:04 PM
