Moses Moody says “it sucks” that he hasn’t been part of a rotation. Says it’s more challenging for him this season than last because he feels like he’s ready to contribute this year, where as last year he didn’t know if he could. But he’s trying to maintain a positive outlook. – 11:53 PM

The Jazz fall to Portland 116-111 in a game where they consistently played uphill. Utah had its chances but late game execution became an issue tonight. The Jazz fall to 14-12 on the season. Utah gets three days off before golden state on Wednesday night – 11:27 PM

Stephen Curry lands awkwardly, possibly tweaking his left foot or ankle, and comes up hobbling a bit. He’s trying to run it off, and does so. Warriors call timeout, and it doesn’t appear that Curry’s being looked at by a trainer during the break. – 10:03 PM

Deep 3 from Moody pushes the Warriors’ lead back to 18. – 9:01 PM

Moses Moody is getting some first-quarter action tonight. Without Klay Thompson, some two-guard minutes have opened up. – 8:58 PM

Moses Moody sighting 👀 – 8:58 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
The way the Warriors can create some of these same looks for Steph every night and teams still can’t stop it is incredible. – 8:58 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Moses Moody getting some late first quarter rotation minutes for the Warriors. Absence of Klay Thompson has opened up some needed opportunity for him. – 8:58 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Warriors through first 8+ minutes: 78.6 percent from the field, 40 percent from the line.

Moses Moody time. – 8:54 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Green and Martin buckets so perhaps the Rockets are not counting on Alperen Sengun scoring 120. – 8:54 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
This might get lost in the two games the Warriors and Rockets have had already, but Jabari Smith Jr. has done a solid job whenever switched onto Steph. – 8:51 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Warriors would be up 22-0 if it weren’t for Alperen Şengün. – 8:51 PM

All starters have scored except that Curry dude – 8:46 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Blistering 15-2 start for the Warriors. Both of these teams played last night. One doesn’t look like it. – 8:45 PM
Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson
pretty perfect start for the Warriors so far
Warriors up 15-2, timeout Rockets
Warriors are a perfect 6-for-6 from the field and 3-for-3 from deep – 8:45 PM
Madeline Kenney @madkenney
The Warriors make their first six shots tonight, including three from deep. They’re up 15-2 with just under nine minutes left in the first. – 8:44 PM

Steve Kerr says he thinks Klay Thompson could be cleared at some point this season to play in both ends of back-to-backs. He’s going through a simulation run today to see how his body responds. – 6:54 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Klay Thompson is out today (back to back) but Warriors coach Steve Kerr says there probably ‘will come a time when he plays back-to-backs’ later this season. The hope is that he’ll be cleared in the coming months – 6:49 PM
Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson
Steve Kerr on the plan with Klay Thompson: “The hope is that he will play back-to-backs later this year.”
Klay walked by us in full gear on the way to the court and is going through a tough workout right now with Rick Celebrini – 6:48 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Steve Kerr says the “hope” is that Klay Thompson will eventually play in back-to-backs this year. Right now the Warriors are just being cautious with him. – 6:48 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
As expected, Jordan Poole will start in place of Klay Thompson tonight. Kerr says Thompson resting on one end of back-to-backs isn’t a new reality for him. The plan is for him to play in both some point this season. – 6:48 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Jordan Poole will start in place of Klay Thompson tonight against the Rockets. – 6:46 PM

Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson
Same plan as usual. Klay Thompson is out tonight on the second of a back-to-back
He and Andre Iguodala are the lone Warriors on the injury report – 4:37 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Klay Thompson is OUT tonight against the Rockets on the second night of the back-to-back. He has yet to play in both games of a back-to-back, and earlier in the season Kerr said he may not all season.
All other starters are active. This is the team’s first home back-to-back. – 4:37 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Klay Thompson will sit tonight against Houston. pic.twitter.com/2pjHDh5yRB4:36 PM

Madeline Kenney @madkenney
As expected, Klay Thompson is out tonight against the Rockets. Rest of the starters are available. – 4:35 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets guard Eric Gordon, as expected houstonchronicle.com/texas-sports-n… to sit out second half of back-to-back against Warriors tonight. Warriors to hold out Klay Thompson, but Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, who sat out second half of Golden State’s previous back-to-back good to go. – 4:34 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Klay Thompson is resting tonight against the Rockets. Still yet to play both sides of a back-to-back since return. No one else on the Warriors is sitting. – 4:34 PM

Perhaps we should have seen this coming. The Knicks allow the most 3pt att and makes. Mavs just took advantage of it. 61 att is a franchise record. 24 makes is 1 off the fran record. It was the 12th game w 60+ 3pt att. Record is 70 by HOU in Jan 2019 – 3:35 PM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
📅 On this day in 2019, the @Houston Rockets James Harden scored 50 points in a loss to the Spurs, setting an NBA record by making 24 free throws without a miss.
He also recorded the lowest FG% in NBA history by a player in a 50-point game (29.7%).

The Warriors are now 119-24 in the regular season when Draymond Green makes multiple 3-pointers 👀
He’s shooting 35.7% from deep this season, the second-best of his career nbcsports.com/bayarea/warrio…3:07 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Deandre Ayton should’ve been called for a loose ball foul against Bruno Fernando with 17.5 seconds left last night, per the NBA’s Last Two Minutes Report – 2:54 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Just one missed call among the 33 calls or no calls in the last two minutes of Rockets-Suns last night. Ayton should have been called for a loose ball foul on Bruno Fernando when grabbing a rebound in closing seconds as the Suns were shooting for the win. official.nba.com/last-two-minut…2:54 PM
