Dave Early @DavidEarly Reporter: “Do you feel like you’re getting the benefit of the whistle in the same way [you have in the past]?”
James Harden “No.”
Reporter: “Why do you think that is?”
James Harden: “That’s a good question. I mean, I dunno. I don’t even want to talk about it.” pic.twitter.com/O8og8HG1Pe10:54 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis James Harden: “There’s ones where there’s like, clearly, stiff arms and trips and things like that.” Adds he’s going to keep driving and he has a right to go to the basket. #Nets10:51 PM

“It’s a good question. I don’t know.” – 10:50 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Warriors beat the Jazz without Draymond Green for a second time. Utah didn’t have Donovan Mitchell tonight. Steph Curry still unable to find his shot (5/20 FG, 1/13 from 3), but GSW survives with defense and double-digit nights from Poole, Lee, Wiggins, Looney, Porter. – 10:46 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Warriors sneak out a 94-92 win over the Jazz despite Steph Curry shooting 5-of-20 from field and 1-of-13 from deep. Warriors have always forged a defensive identity, and leaned on that. Jazz shot 38.3% overall & 31.4% from deep – 10:45 PM
Geoff Calkins @geoff_calkins Memphis Tigers and Penny Hardaway get a win they needed — and deserved. Column: dailymemphian.com/subscriber/sec…10:41 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Steph Curry checking back in for the final 2:54. He went to scorer’s table at 4:29 mark, but there wasn’t a stoppage in play. Either way, we’ll see if he has a 3 in him. – 10:38 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly “Yeah, I think it’s been well documented that he’s one of the poster childs.”

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang With the Nets losing, the Heat is now alone in first place in the East.

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Fans at Chase Center holding their breath whenever Steph Curry shoots from 3. So weird. Haven’t witnessed that since Metta World Peace’s days with the Lakers – 10:27 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 The Miami Heat are 1st in the East
Jimmy Butler has played 29 out of 47 games
Bam Adebayo has played 22
Kyle Lowry has missed 8 games, Tyler Herro has missed 9 games
Erik Spoelstra doing Erik Spoelstra things – 10:26 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski Wolves 13
Really strong performance
Russell: 23, 10a, 5r
Edwards: 25, 4a
KAT: 23 and 7
Prince: 15 on. 6-6
Nowell: 16
McDaniels: 14 and great defense on Harden – 10:26 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA Wolves get back on track, knock off Brooklyn
Wolves 136, Nets 125
On tonight’s show:
– Big offensive night in game KAT started slow
– What went into holding Harden to 13 points (4/13 shooting)
– Playing (and resting) KAT + Ant + DLo together more
– Anthony Edwards gets hurt – 10:25 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Final: Wolves beat the Nets 136-125 to finish the road trip 2-2. Kyrie Irving dropped 30, Mills had 21 while Harden had just 13. Bad week for the defense. Nets return home to face the Lakers on Tuesday. See you all there. – 10:25 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Steph Curry 1 of 11 from 3 so far tonight, now 35 of 115 from deep in January — 30.4 percent. – 10:22 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Embarrassing defensive performance from Nets tonight. T’Wolves getting anything they want — especially down the stretch. Nash pulls Harden/Kyrie for the night.

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe Warriors 3-point shooting
Steph Curry 1-for-9 (11.1 percent)
Rest of team 12-for-22 (54.5 percent) – 10:04 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski All bench to start the 4th. A little more vulnerable with Irving running Nets than Harden, who has been off all night – 9:58 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah Honestly smart move for Rudy to get the KG block on Curry’s shot after the whistle. Curry is 1-of-7 from 3, keeps him from seeing the ball go in (not that it totally matters with a shooter like Curry, but anything you can do, y’know) – 9:55 PM
Nick DePaula @NickDePaula Kyrie debuts a @OregonMBB Infinity PE 🦆 pic.twitter.com/RnnMjhyyUv9:55 PM

Nick DePaula @NickDePaula Stephen Curry breaks out the Tiger theme Curry 9 Flow from his @SesameStreet Pack. pic.twitter.com/FrQR9b7A1h9:46 PM

Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski Kyrie Irving looked like he had a clear breakaway. Then Jaden McDaniels swooped in, so he passed to Mills. Then Vanderbilt was there. That’s the difference with this Wolves team. Long arms and hustle. – 9:41 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski Kyrie Irving looks like he never left. The touch, the finishing, the handle, it’s all there. – 9:36 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz HALFTIME: Warriors 55, Jazz 54. Nice bounce-back from Utah after opening the quarter pretty lethargically. Still, definitely got some help from GS missing a few open looks (Warriors 7-18 FGs in 2Q). Bogey 15p/6r. Gay 10p/5r. Conley 9p. For GSW: Lee 12p, Poole 11, Curry 10. – 9:34 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba Halftime in San Francisco: the Jazz trail the Warriors 55-54…Bogdanovic with 15 and 6 rebounds. Lee with 12 for the warriors. Poole with 11. Curry with 10 – 9:33 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe Jordan Poole just dropped Jordan Clarkson … and hit the 3. Clarkson knew he was cooked as he sat on the ground. – 9:25 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski Harden and Towns are a combined 2-16.
Wolves have been terrible in the 3rd quarters so this is an important first six minutes – 9:25 PM

“I just want y’all to know his field goal percentage. 7/18. That’s my birthday. Just wanted y’all to know that.”
@5ReasonsSports9:17 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz Amateur coaching tip: Don’t let Steph Curry be the guy you leave wide open. – 9:14 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Halftime: Nets trail the Wolves 72-62. Awful defensive first half for Brooklyn. Edwards and Russell have combined for 32. Irving has 10. Every Nets who has played has scored. Nets seem to be frustrated with some of the officiating. Wolves shooting 57 percent from the field. – 9:11 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Nets have seen it a lot already this year — Harden drives to the rim, either gets locked up or throws up a wild shot — and doesn’t get the whistle. Same thing happened in final moments of first half after running into KAT. The explosion doesn’t seem the same. He’s now 1-for-8. – 9:11 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis #Nets down 72-62 at the break after allowing .568 shooting. James Harden has just seven points on 1-of-8 shooting. Meanwhile, D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards have combined for 32 points for the #Timberwolves. – 9:11 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski KAT smothers Harden on the final drive of the half. Wolves shot 19 FTs to Nets 8. Can’t complain about the calls so far (even if there have been a couple shaky ones)
Russell with 17, Edwards with 15. – 9:09 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS After 1 at Chase Center: Warriors 33, Jazz
-Curry 8, Wiggins 7, Lee 6, Poole/Looney 5 ea
-FG%: Warriors 54.2, Jazz 52.6
-Offense is finding rhythm
-Poole tap-dances on Gobert, drains buzzer-beating 3 to close the quarter – 9:07 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Frustration showing for Harden — he was talking to Jarred Vanderbilt for a few seconds before the ball went back in — then he gave him a little push and got T’d up. Harden is 0-for-6 in 17 minutes. Nets getting run up and down the floor in the first half. – 9:06 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski Vando has riled up Harden. Just drew a T for a shove. Wolves have really gotten after the Nets in this 2nd quarter. – 9:05 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer James Harden with a pair of shoves on Jared Vanderbilt. He earned the T there. – 9:05 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Erik Spoelstra on Jimmy Butler breaking the triple-double record, “I still just think that’s remarkable. And that just shows you his skill-set.”
“He’s really developed into a great play-maker for us…He does a great job of just finding our shooters in these random situations.” – 9:01 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang NEW: The Lakers made a late run led by LeBron, but the Heat survived behind another triple-double from Jimmy Butler. Takeaways and details from another Heat home win miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia…8:55 PM

@5ReasonsSportsfivereasonssports.com/news/five-take…8:44 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski Jaylen Nowell really has it going. The crafty stuff and creativity allowed Finch to stay with an all-bench unit to start the second even with Harden out there. – 8:41 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Nash has been frustrated over the last few weeks with the defensive intensity at times — Nets just gave up 37 points in the first.
Harden is 0-for-4 so far. Kyrie off to a nice start with eight points, three assists and two rebounds in 10 minutes. – 8:36 PM
StatMuse @statmuse DeMar DeRozan first 40-piece since 2018.
41 PTS
15-21 FG
0-0 3P
He joins Giannis, Westbrook, LaMarcus Aldridge and Ben Simmons as the only players with 40+ points without taking a three since 2015. pic.twitter.com/0FsmWB1IUW8:36 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer End of the first quarter: Nets lead the Wolves 37-36. Bad start defensively for BK, but Karl Towns is just 1-for-6. Bad start for Harden, who is 0-for-4. Mills and Irving have combined for 15. Nets killing the Wolves on the boards 16-5. – 8:35 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe The skid continues for the Chicago Bulls as they drop their seventh loss in the last nine games.
DeMar DeRozan’s 41 points can’t do anything to move the needle in a 114-95 loss. – 8:33 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry Final: Magic 114, Bulls 95.
DeMar DeRozan: 41/5/3
Coby White: 22/4

Bench points: 51-10, Magic.
The Bulls are now 28-17. – 8:31 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer James Harden, Cam Thomas, Aldridge, Bembry and James Johnson is your second unit tonight. Not as non-shooter heavy as reserves past. – 8:26 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe That’s 40 points for DeMar DeRozan. A herculean effort to keep the Bulls competitive in this one. – 8:23 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski Harden usually sees Josh Okogie when he’s in Minnesota (good chance he sees him later). But now he has the length of McDaniels to deal with. Different look – 8:23 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry DeMar DeRozan now has 41 points. It’s his first 40-point game as a member of the Chicago Bulls and his first since March 7, 2018, when he was with Toronto.
He has not attempted a 3-pointer tonight. – 8:22 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat Jimmy Butler now one rebound from breaking LeBron’s Heat record of nine triple-doubles. – 7:57 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Jimmy Butler is just such a complete player
On-ball defense, off-ball reads and gambles, a confident driver, exceptional passer, good rebounder
That’s all been on display in this one
All of it – 7:53 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell Tyrese Maxey walking slowly to the bench after he was just on the ground a minute ago. Sixers are already without their other top 5 perimeter players (Curry, Thybulle, Green, Milton annddd Simmons) – 7:53 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat Make it 12 assists for Jimmy Butler. – 7:51 PM
Mark Giannotto @mgiannotto COLUMN: The way Memphis rallied around Penny Hardaway in recent days is why he’ll keep this job, maybe as long as he wants it. But for him to succeed in this job, he’ll need to get better. On a gutsy win at Tulsa and the subtle signs of progress. commercialappeal.com/story/sports/c…7:51 PM
James Boyd @RomeovilleKid Patrick Mahomes makes the most F U throws in the league. 😂😂😂 It’s like Steph Curry and his F U 3s in the NBA. – 7:43 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang Jimmy Butler with 13 points 8 rebounds and 11 assists. – 7:43 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA Tonight’s @PrizePicks for Wolves-Nets
DLo over 18.5 pts
– should attack BKN’s switches + drop coverage
Vando over over 9.0 rebs
– should handle BKN’s size well
Harden under 8.0 rebs
– i guess he averages 8 per, but that feels high
Edwards over 3.0 FTs made
– refs!!!! – 7:41 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry MVP chants for DeMar DeRozan have broken out in Orlando as DeRozan attempts foul shots with 5:00 left in the third. Magic fans are trying to drown them out with boos. – 7:40 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef DeMar DeRozan and Moe Wagner just got into it a little bit in Orlando
Wagner wrapped DeRozan up to prevent a fastbreak. One would understand the Bulls being a little sensitive to such a play right now – 7:40 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Jimmy Butler corner 3
You love to see it – 7:39 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops Moe Wagner taking on Compton … you ain’t about that life, Moe. DeMar DeRozan was not happy with that foul, especially what happened about 48 hours ago. – 7:38 PM
Khobi Price @khobi_price Moe Wagner’s got the crowd here in Amway applauding after his brief dust up with DeMar Derozan. – 7:37 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry Little dust-up between DeMar DeRozan and Moe Wagner here. DeRozan takes exception to a hard foul in transition by Wagner. At least DeRozan wasn’t in the air! – 7:37 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Nets starting: Harden, Irving, Mills, Edwards and Sharpe against the Wolves. – 7:34 PM

Julia Poe @byjuliapoe DeMar DeRozan (20 pts) is essentially hauling the Chicago Bulls alone on his own through this first half. DeRozan and Coby White (10 pts) account for over 80% of total offense.
The Bulls trail the dead-last Magic 53-37 at the half. – 7:09 PM
