Only one player in NBA history has recorded 5,000 rebounds and 3,000 assist within his first 500 career games: Nikola Jokic. Future generations are going to wonder if this guy was real. pic.twitter.com/O58h4Rvrgc12:05 AM

Dallas sports fans are all too familiar w/ THJ’s injury. Former Mavs Roddy B & Dominique Jones sustained 5th metatarsal fractures during the 2010-11 season. Cowboys players to sustain the injury include Dez Bryant & DeMarcus Lawrence, who missed 11 games earlier this year. – 11:58 PM

Just like nobody should have turned on Cade Cunningham early, and no one should have turned on Jalen Suggs early, I would implore everyone to not overreact to a poor shooting stretch here from Jalen Green. Rookies go through struggles. Shit happens. – 11:50 PM

Re: THJ: Hardaway becomes the third player this season to suffer a 5th metatarsal fracture, along with Vlatko Cancar and Zion Williamson. – 11:40 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
This reminds me so much of the long road trip the Clippers took before the 2019 trade deadline, when they also authored three 20+ point comebacks (vs. Detroit, Charlotte, Boston). That roster had an unheralded, gritty feel to it as well. But obviously, a 35-pt rally tops them all – 11:27 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
Cade Cunningham’s weakside defensive positioning and closeout/recovery footwork are guilty pleasures. Nikola Jokic’s entire game is a pleasure, no guilt involved. That was a fun palette cleanser after the Wizards debacle. – 11:23 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
After further review: Doesn’t look like Nikola Jokic had 10 assists tonight in Detroit. He was credited for the full-court pass to Austin Rivers in the first quarter. This skip to Rivers was close to an assist, but I think Rivers’ jab step negated it. pic.twitter.com/qNr1bgXEmp11:21 PM

Spurs hit a season-best 57.4 percent of their shots from the floor (58 of 101), eclipsing the 56 percent they shot against Detroit on Dec. 26.
They also had 38 assists, which was one shy of matching the season-best 39 they had against the Pistons in that same game. – 11:16 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
McDermott said he surprised himself a bit with his first half slam:
“It’s been awhile since I had one of those. It felt good. Fresh legs. I was in a hotel (in Detroit) for a while as you know (in COVID quarantine). It’s nice to be recovered. I had a good one. Perfect timing.” – 11:13 PM

Cunningham on what he’s most pleased with about his rookie season: “I’m happy with how much my teammates trust me with the ball. They want me to make plays for us, they want me to be aggressive. I worked really hard to get to where I’m at in basketball … it means a lot to me.” – 10:52 PM
Michael Lee @MrMichaelLee
For anyone who feared Shaquille O’Neal was the asteroid who pushed the center toward extinction, I really hope you’re thrilled to see that Joel Embiid & Nikola Jokic have brought the big man back – with more skill, versatility & range – & are tearing up things Jurassic Park style – 10:48 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Cunningham: “I’ve imagined these moments so much that I don’t feel out of place when I’m out there. Nothing feels fake to me. Just being out there after dreaming about it for so long, I’m excited to be in this position. I’m happy to be here.” – 10:27 PM

Cunningham on the crowd reacting to the battle between him and Jokic: “You can always feel what the environment is like, the intensity in the arena. At the end of the day we’re all performers, and the bigger the stage, the better, I feel like.” – 10:26 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Asked Cunningham about sensing when to take over: “More than anything, it’s been about making my mind up about what I want to do before the play presents itself. Now I’m just reading the play as it comes, being more disciplined about my reads and we’re getting better outcomes.” – 10:25 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Cade Cunningham on how he can get to free-throw line more: “Maybe use my voice more, yell. Maybe we need to win more to get respect, whistles. We can only control what we can control.” – 10:24 PM

Cunningham on how to get to the line more: “Maybe use my voice more, yell or something. Continue to play more games. We might get a little more respect from the refs for them to blow the whistle more.” Cunningham had zero free throws in 40 minutes tonight. – 10:24 PM

Down 66-36 at the half, Ty Lue said Reggie Jackson joked that the Clippers are “right where we want to be” having erased deficits of 24 or more against Denver and Philly this month. Lue said he wasn’t feeling the joke at the time but he can laugh about it now. – 10:12 PM

Casey said Cade is getting hit when he goes to the line. Tells him to keep being aggressive and to get to know the refs. “He’s going to be in the league for a long time.” – 9:53 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Casey on Cunningham not drawing fouls: “He’s a gamer. He’s going to the basket and he’s not getting the whistle.” Said Cunningham is keeping his composure, and he has to talk to the refs. “He’s getting hit and they’re missing the calls, and they’re going to miss some of them.” – 9:53 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
“We got lucky tonight,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said.
Despite 25 turnovers for 38 Pistons points, the #Nuggets start their journey throughout America with a win.

The Clippers are the first team over the last 25 seasons to overcome a 24-point deficit and win 3 times in the same season. And they did it in just the month of January, beating the Nuggets, Sixers and now Wizards. And… they did all three without Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. – 9:53 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Casey on Cunningham: “The way he was seeing the floor, passing the ball, finding other people. We have to make shots when he does that, but you have to have a guy who can get his own shot no matter who’s on him.” – 9:52 PM

So I was just chillinge watching Denver-Detroit and apparently some stuff happened. – 9:51 PM

The Clippers’ 35-point comeback is the second-largest in play-by-play era (since 1996-97). The Jazz overcame a 36-point deficit against the Nuggets in 1996 per @ESPNStatsInfo. And the Clippers did it with mostly their reserves as Ty Lue leaned on likes of Mann, Kennard, Coffey. – 9:46 PM

The Clippers were down 35 points to the Wizards and came back and won 116-115, completing the second biggest comeback in NBA history.

Zeke Nnaji has really found himself as of late and as a result of that that you’re seeing him get more time.
He’s getting minutes with Nikola Jokic and being able to knock down the 3-ball will only give him more opportunities.
Extends the Nuggets lead to 11. – 8:56 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Cade is COOKING. Up to 25 points. Detroit had cut its deficit to six after a Cade 3 but Nuggets answered right away. – 8:51 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Cade can’t miss tonight. 25 points (10-15 overall, 5-7 from 3) and 8 assists with time left in the third – 8:50 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Only reason Pistons are still in this game: 16 turnovers for 25 DET points.
Stop if you’ve heard this one before. #Nuggets breathing life into a lesser team. – 8:50 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Nuggets 88, Pistons 78 with 4:51 left in 3Q. Detroit is surging but I wonder if they can keep Denver off the line. – 8:48 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Very animated, very rage-y timeout from Michael Malone.
Yelling: “GET BACK!”
#Nuggets up 10 with 4:51 left in the third. – 8:47 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
I know Denver’s winning, but I can’t stop watching Cade. He’s got Luka energy. Maybe not quite that potent, but it’s similar. – 8:42 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Cade Cunningham went from a quiet 15 to a loud 22. He’s cooking right now. Has 22p/6a/4r and is keeping Detroit within striking distance. – 8:41 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Another nice night evolving for Cade Cunningham— chasedown block on Aaron Gordon, then a step back triple. 20-6-4 in 24 mins. 4-5 from 3 – 8:40 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Cade might be becoming a chasedown block artist. Nice job by him and Saddiq to stop Denver in transition – 8:39 PM

Cade Cunningham with a chase-down block on Aaron Gordon. That pumped some life back in here. Pistons down 15. – 8:39 PM

19-11-5 for Jokic in the first half.
Lots of FTs over the final 5 minutes of the half. 30 combined so far. Not a lot of rhythm to the game for either team. – 8:16 PM
Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson
Nuggets lead 69-59 at the half over Detroit and are absolutely dominating the Pistons on the boards.
Denver has a 28-13 advantage there with 34 points in the paint.
Jokic has 19/5/11. Gordon has 12 and is making Cunningham work for everything and starters have started well. – 8:16 PM

-Jokić with 19-11-5 lmao
-AG came to play tonight on both ends. Cade got his, but I liked AG’s game on both ends
-Cousins (aka non Jokić lineups) was a +2
-11 players played, which was interesting pic.twitter.com/OppITud80W8:15 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Denver just shot its 20th free throw of the first half. Detroit has half that.
Pistons have been fouling a lot. Casey mentioned before game and after game the other day.
Also these refs have been cheeks (YOU CANT FINE ME) – 8:13 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Nice lob in transition from Saddiq to Hamidou. This has been an ugly game. Pistons hanging around, though. – 8:02 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
There are two times Jokic moves at lightspeed during a game. The first is when he’s hustling to get the ball in bounds to take advantage of an unsuspecting defense. Other time is to go pick a teammate up who’s on the gorund. Both are telling. – 8:02 PM

Probably not a good idea nor great timing to get ejected and make the game about you when Frank Jackson just came back. – 7:53 PM

Josh Jackson just got a T and was as close as you could go without being ejected. – 7:48 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
After Boogie’s putback layup forced a Pistons TO, entire bench stood up and flexed. And as Boogie walked to the bench, Jokic grabbed Boogie to show him something he saw with the defense. – 7:46 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Boogie got away with a blatant hook there on Lyles – 7:45 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
While there’s (justifiably) a lot of attention on the potential of the Jokic-Forbes pairing, the Bones-Forbes pairing can do some things, too, becuase of his Bones’ ability to collapse a defense. – 7:44 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Bones being able to create is so important for the Nuggets bench. Without his ability to break down defenses, there are so few options without being predictable on offense. – 7:44 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Malone calls TO 25 seconds into the second quarter after Frank Jackson scores on a layup.
Lineup was Bones/Facu/Bryn/DeMarcus/ Zeke. – 7:39 PM

Frank Jackson subbed in with 50 seconds left, and closed the quarter with a 3. His first game since Dec. 29.
End of 1: Nuggets 34, Pistons 32. Detroit closed the quarter with a 15-7 run.
Cunningham: 13 points, 3 assists
Bey: 9 points – 7:36 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Joker should have 11/9/5 after that first quarter. Some strange box-scoring so far. Either way, #Nuggets up 34-32. Pistons bench ends quarter on 6-1 run. – 7:36 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Nice drive-and-kick by Killian Hayes to Frank Jackson, who drills his first basket since returning.

You’re hopeful you can get away with less than stellar bench play in Detroit, but the bench needs to be solid the rest of the way. Denver needs wins. – 1:26 PM
