Gordon Hayward: I know everybody is curious about where things stand with my rehab. It’s all been going really well. I’m happy to report I’m feeling like an athlete again. I’ve been in Indianapolis for the last couple weeks making some really good progress. I leave the hotel every morning at about 9:30 am and don’t get back til about 6 pm. We do a lot of running mechanics, physical therapy, a lift of some sort, and then court work for another few hours. It’s a full day, every day. I’m definitely moving along as planned, and progressing really well.

Eric Koreen: Per Raps, Green fell one point short of Lowry’s franchise record of 22 points in a quarter, set on Dec. 2, 2015 in Atlanta. Green’s seven threes were, of course, a franchise record for 3s in a frame.
Tania Ganguli: Some fun facts about Kuzma’s big first quarter from the Lakers. He’s the first Laker with 20 in the first since Kobe in 2011. Only six players have had multiple 20-point quarters this season: Steph Curry, James Harden, Damian Lillard, Paul George, Kemba Walker and Kyle Kuzma
Scott Agness: Good time for the Pacers to play the Mavericks. They won 111-99 led by 19 points from Tyreke Evans. Sabonis had 16/11. Most starters played ~25m with another game tomorrow night vs Hornets.
