Lakers Announcers: “STOP! STOP!!!”
Westbrook: pic.twitter.com/ZbGJvZsWkp1:05 AM
Sopan Deb @SopanDeb absolutely hilarious to hear the lakers broadcasting team yelling stop at westbrook as he dribbles full speed down the floor in the last minute of a game – 1:01 AM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang Bam Adebayo made his return and Jimmy Butler finished with a triple-double. Takeaways, details and postgame reaction from tonight’s Heat win over the Raptors miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia… Heat now just percentage points behind the top spot in the East – 12:00 AM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha Halftime: Lakers 52, Jazz 46
LeBron James and Russell Westbrook lead LA with 10 points each. The Lakers are shooting 51.4% overall and have made 9 of their 20 3-point attempts (45%). It feels like LA should be up more given how poorly Utah has played and shot the ball. – 11:49 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen Now reviewing if Dwight’s foul on Gobert is a flagrant.
The Lakers can’t stop shooting themselves in the foot — a loose-ball foul on a free-throw in the penalty??? — and yet they have been the smarter team tonight. – 11:43 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA Heat-Raptors … I can’t remember ever watching a game quite like that. Felt like a Free Darko dream sequence. Two teams with multiple post-doc degrees in off-ball spacing + technique on both ends.
Jimmy Butler is too clever. One of the most unique players in NBA history. – 11:42 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah There was like a solid full second where Gobert and Westbrook locked eyes and it looked like it could go bad and then Gobert kind of smirked a little and then Russ got a T when he kept talking.
But holy hell, that dunk. – 11:40 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Russell Westbrook’s trash talk to Rudy Gobert brings back memories of Draymond Green making fun of Gobert for crying for not making the All-Star team – 11:39 PM
Melissa Rohlin @melissarohlin That one-handed Russell Westbrook jam over Rudy Gobert sent every guy on the Lakers’ bench jumping up in celebration. Not sure what highlight is more impressive, though, that or him helping mop up a courtside fan’s spilled drink. – 11:39 PM
Jason Jones @mr_jasonjones Someone check on @Tony Jones … he can’t be right after what Westbrook did to Gobert – 11:38 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Westbrook absolutely hammered one on Gobert, plus a foul.
He gave back the and-1 with a technical for taunting, but the Lakers fans in the building didn’t seem to mind. (He made the and-1 FT after Bogdanovic hit the tech).
LAL up 51-41. – 11:38 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops Wow, that might be the best dunk on Gobert since DeMar DeRozan. That was insane. – 11:38 PM
Sopan Deb @SopanDeb jeeeeeeeez that westbrook dunk was one of the best dunks of the whole year – 11:38 PM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob WESTBROOK DETONATES ON GOBERT pic.twitter.com/SWGa3aihX111:38 PM

Dave McMenamin @mcten Well Russell Westbrook just dunked all over Rudy Gobert, while drawing the and-1, and then talked that talk. He got a tech for it but don’t think too many people on the Lakers minded that. – 11:38 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen Russell Westbrook dunks *all over* Rudy Gobert; and-one. Gets a tech after, but that was as good as it gets. – 11:37 PM
Allen Sliwa @AllenSliwa One of the highlights dunks of the year from Westbrook… – 11:37 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Russell Westbrook gets the highlight poster dunk. And the T. – 11:37 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon Russell Westbrook dunked on the French Rejection. – 11:37 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon Really, really impressed with Dwight’s defensive energy in this game. He’s getting up to the perimeter and moving well even when he’s switched onto smaller guys. – 11:27 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter A good stretch from LAL’s bench unit with no LeBron or Westbrook produced a quick 5-0 run, with Monk scoring at the rim off a nice dribble move, and Johnson hitting a corner 3 to put LAL up 20-19. – 11:01 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon LeBron and Dwight just subbed out, and LeBron was getting on Dwight’s case — seemingly about the Joe Ingles corner three and the defense on that possession. – 10:57 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Dwight Howard seemed annoyed along the bench. Phil Handy & LeBron James trying to talk to him – 10:57 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA Insane to see Scottie Barnes track Jimmy Butler through multiple strides with his back turned. Jimmy got him on a pump fake in the end, but this is some wild athleticism and coordination. pic.twitter.com/Vih9WtdQt210:54 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Russell Westbrook helping the arena worker with sweeping the wet spot. Then proceeds to make a bank shot. – 10:50 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah Honestly, seeing Westbrook help mop up a wet spot on the court and then skip and laugh when he walks away just tells me that he’s totally loose and feeling good tonight. – 10:49 PM
Bill Oram @billoram Including a mopping, Russell Westbrook, EVERYBODY is chipping in to clean up a courtside spill… except for the guy who spilled. – 10:49 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon Big round of applause for Russell Westbrook as he literally mops a wet spot courtside that Donovan Mitchell slipped on. – 10:48 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Jimmy Butler says Bam Adebayo “makes this whole team go.” – 10:45 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg Jimmy Butler on Bam Adebayo’s return: “It’s good to have my guy back.” pic.twitter.com/58AW5PYpPd10:44 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Bam Adebayo asked about jumping up and down at the end of the game:
Says it was because of Jimmy Butler’s 10th rebound for the triple-double
“I told everyone in the huddle, ‘box-out so Jimmy can get the rebound.'” – 10:43 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang NEW: Bam Adebayo returned and Jimmy Butler recorded a triple-double. Takeaways and details from the Heat’s win over the Raptors miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia…10:11 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang Jimmy Butler already up to 13 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists in 13 minutes. – 8:28 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg End 1Q: Raptors 30, Heat 27
– Bam Adebayo with 0 for 2 and 3 rebounds in his first minutes since Nov. 29.
– Jimmy Butler getting to the rim for most of his damage and 9 points.

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Tyler Herro pushing pace in Kyle Lowry fashion after the make
They need that
Jimmy Butler and 1 – 7:58 PM

Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef 10 observations: Parting thoughts after Grizzlies blitzed Bulls for season-high fourth straight loss
Turnover troubles, Vucevic struggles, Ayo silver lining, more:
nbcsports.com/chicago/bulls/…7:04 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry Final: Grizzlies 119, Bulls 106.
DeMar DeRozan: 24/5 assists
Coby White: 16/6/5
Ayo Dosunmu: 15/10/6/5
The Bulls are now 27-15. – 6:03 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop Grizzlies 119, Bulls 106
Bulls have lost 4 straight
DeRozan 24 pts, 5 assists
White 16 pts, 6 rebs, 5 assists
Dosunmu 15 pts, 10 rebs, 6 assists, 5 steals, 2 blocks
Vucevic 2-13; didn’t play in 4th
Bane and Morant 25 points each – 6:03 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop Donovan puts in four subs and Ayo (who usually is a sub). Vucevic didn’t play in 4th after 2-13 night. – 5:53 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU Marcus Morris appeared to tweak his left hand on last Clippers turnover. Something to watch as Clippers in really their first track meet of the season. – 5:42 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop The different roles/rotations can explain some of the 17 TOs and sub-40% shooting through 3 quarters.
But when DeRozan (7-19) and Vucevic (2-13) are shooting like this, shorthanded Bulls have little chance. – 5:27 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU The slump is busted for Marcus Morris Sr., who is back over 20 points after four rough games.
LA leads Pacers 104-90 entering fourth quarter. Great shooting performance. Defense hasn’t really been there, but one quarter left to protect 14 points. – 5:22 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop Vucevic cracks scoring column after 0-6 start – 5:07 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry Vooch’s first points come on a putback with 8 1/2 minutes left in the third. He’s now 1-for-7. – 5:07 PM
Bob Garcia @bgarciaivsports Russell Westbrook has responded sternly to the ever-growing trade chatter around him.
#Lakers #LakeShow #NBA
sportscasting.com/russell-westbr…4:51 PM
Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports #Bulls are within striking distance, down 58-45 at half. Memphis is really crowding DeRozan, he’s 4-12, 10 pts. Vucevic hasn’t scored, but 7 rebs & 3 blocks. Bulls have to stop losing track of Bane (19 pts).
White leads Bulls with 11; Ayo 7 pts, 8 rebs, Malcolm Hill 7 & 6 – 4:47 PM
Kurt Helin @basketballtalk Nikola Vucevic, Boban Marjanovic defend deported Novak Djokovic nba.nbcsports.com/2022/01/17/nik…4:45 PM
Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington Bane’s offense and Jackson’s defense helps push Grizzlies out to 58-45 lead at half. Pretty rough half for Vucevic. – 4:44 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop Grizzlies 58, Bulls 47 at half
White 11 pts
DeRozan 10 pts, 3 assists
Dosunmu 9 pts, 8 rebs
Hill 7 pts, 6 rebs
Vucevic 0 pts, 0-4
Bulls 12 TOs
Bane 19 pts – 4:44 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Jayson Tatum on defending DeMar DeRozan and Brandon Ingram late in back-to-back games: “I’m just trying to make an impact on both ends of the floor. Trying to dominate the game in more than just one way.” – 4:12 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann If this was last year, Dwight Howard would be launching a 3 right about now. – 4:02 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin Kentavious Caldwell-Pope steps into a triple and the Wizards now have a 72-59 lead. Doc Rivers gets a timeout in. Philly just looks sleepy today. Just a step slow. #Sixers3:28 PM
Clay Bailey @claybailey9 Here are your starters for Grizz vs. Bulls. Chicago: DeRozan, Alfonzo McKinnie, Vucevic, Dosunmu, Coby White; Grizz start: Bane, Ja, Adams, JJJ and Ziaire. – 3:26 PM
