It’s kinda wild how good Tyrese Maxey has been this season…
one of seven guys averaging at least 3 assists/turnover, min. 30 minutes a game (THJ, CP3, Maxey, Dejounte, Derrick White, Smart, Dame)
Those other six guys are 25 or older; Maxey just turned 21 this month – 11:54 PM

Paul said it’s just a coincidence that a large chunk of their wins on this 14-game winning streak came after Sarver allegations came out in #ESPN report, but added team is controlling what they can control and said he’s never seen a group like this in terms of chemistry. #Suns10:14 PM

Geez, what a game. Suns beat #Cavs 120-115.
Despite some questionable officiating, the Cavs just continue to play so hard. Give them credit there. They compete with some of the best teams in the league.
But one of their steps forward is continuing to learn to close games. – 9:32 PM

one of the worst take fouls you’ll see this season. Cavs are in the middle of a big run and the ref stops the play to rule THIS an away from the ball foul on JaVale McGee. Osman’s 3 taken off board, Cavs ball side out. this STINKS @NBA. pic.twitter.com/fcnLGRW0C09:13 PM

JaVale McGee grabbing Jarrett Allen 40 feet behind from the play is a creative new way for take fouls to prevent us from, you know, playing basketball. The NBA can’t fix this soon enough. – 9:07 PM

Smart foul by McGee to stop that #Cavs open floor opportunity that ended with Osman 3.

Lots of uncertainty exists as far as who is a go and who’s out on Thanksgiving eve. It sound like LeBron is in, AD is OUT and Darius Garland is good to go.

“He’s a really good passer, I think first and foremost, and, obviously, on the outside looking in, you don’t get to see all of those things.”
#Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff on giving JaVale McGee playmaking opportunities, something that Monty Williams has continued with him. #Suns pic.twitter.com/lsNWJLRBif6:11 PM

“You can see the guys have bought in and all they care about is each other and winning. I think that’s the, from a coach’s standpoint that’s what you love about the game and that’s you respect so much about Monty and the guys over there.” #Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff on #Suns. pic.twitter.com/ncs3Bx9jeS6:07 PM

“If I felt like I needed to steer them away from something, it would be based on my past of making mistakes with organization change, but not tell them what to do cause it was unchartered territory for all of us.” Monty Williams talks with #Suns about Robert Sarver allegations. pic.twitter.com/nlx8WdmqGQ5:59 PM

Having a job.
Free #NBA socks.
Family.
Kids.

Monty Williams could go on and on. but those are things he’s thankful for with #Thanksgiving being tomorrow.

Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff didn’t have an update yet on if Darius Garland will play or not after Garland was listed as questionable. Cleveland is already without Evan Mobley and Collin Sexton. – 5:20 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs Darius Garland needs to go thru some pregame stuff before a determination is made about his status. – 5:19 PM

Already read an advance PDF in the summer, so I know @SethPartnow’s book is as great as you’d expect, but excited to dig into the hard copy from the publisher. This is denser, both physically and because it includes @Tim Bontemps‘ foreword: https://t.co/SD5WVYWba5 pic.twitter.com/ky4v26Jyr55:05 PM

Just finished the recently released “Jerome Kersey: Overcoming the Odds.” Kerry Eggers (@Kerry Eggers) wrote the book Kersey deserved, full of emotion and insight on the unlikely path from Longwood College to 11 yrs as a #Blazers favorite and a title with the #Spurs. Really good. pic.twitter.com/sGAuiVzia14:40 PM

After #Lakers loss to Knicks, Shaquille O’Neal said if they “keep playing like this,” thinking they can flip switch, they’ll either be 8th in West and “get blown out” by Golden State or 7th and have same results versus Utah.
So is he saying #Suns won’t finish 1st or 2nd in West? pic.twitter.com/qOsDJ6OgtS4:04 PM

Chris Paul is shooting 47% from the field despite only having taken FIVE shots at the rim in 17 games, per @Ben Falk. Five.
That’s with a 32% mark from 3 too that will go up.
He’s at 54% efficiency on midrange shots, which would be a career best. – 3:05 PM
