This is an offday after a back to back. #Pacers are traveling to Brooklyn for a game Monday. Therefore, to get Victor Oladipo practice time, theyve assigned him to the Mad Ants again and he'll be recalled after he gets work in with them. Standard operating procedure
- All NBA Teams
My father, who is a proud member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity, just informed me that Charles Drew, who has a HS named after him in ATL where Kaepernick worked out yesterday, is also an Omega. Today is the 118th anniversary of the founding of that fraternity. Nice symmetry.

I don’t know if this is SNL’s year. Might be time to trade Kate McKinnon for a pair of first round picks and rebuild around Heidi Gardner and Ego Nwodim. Kenan Thompson and Aidy Bryant have been good vets for a long time. Send them somewhere they can win a ring.
Paul George roasting Hawks & before that, Pels, has me wondering: How long do we have to wait to see him & Kawhi Leonard on the floor together? Feels like the NBA season doesn't get real until those dudes are vying to be the best two-way perimeter tandem since...um, you know who
I wonder how Melo will cope when he’s losing minutes to Nasir Little
Just noticing that the Pacers shot one more 3 than last night (34). I'm sure the "shoot 3s" crowd is delighted. ... Without the full complement of shooters, those stats don't mean quite as much #PacersRockets
Seems like a lot of guards have perfected the throw-ahead dribble CJ McCollum just used to attack pick-and-roll drop coverage.
Awful meltdown in progress by the Blazers. What exactly is this offense??
What's the NBA equivalent of batting .400 for a season? If it hasn't been determined, I nominate whatever it is that James Harden is doing this season. Because he's on some Wilt/MJ-level offensive production.

It's only a 71-63 deficit after 3. Considering the situation here, this is as good as can be expected. All sorts of things going wrong
Turner 14p 9r 4b
AHoliday 11p 4r 4a
13 TOs = 20p
Giannis 23p 11r 5a
42-14 edge in paint pts
Warren is forcing a lot of tough shots tonight. This is 2 bad offensive games in a row #PacersBucks
They're going under every ball screen to give up mid range (that's what Bud's teams do) and trapping the post. Aaron Holiday with 5 consecutive points off it to get deficit down to 33-29. Be patient on the trap. Make the easy pass out #PacersBucks
Giannis 😱 #PacersBucks
McDermott might have a tough time tonight w/o McConnell getting clean shots in the half court. When he tried to get off his first shot coming off that double stagger the pass from Long was not delivered in his shooting pocket. Had to reach back. Got it blocked. #PacersBucks
Bucks are sucking into the paint even when Mitrou-Long comes off the ball screen. Leaving shooters open. Leads to Leaf spot up 3 #PacersBucks
Sabonis v Giannis in space is an interesting matchup to say the least #PacersBucks
Milwaukee is sending help to the post when Sabonis gets it even mid-post. Pacers moving in slow motion to respond to it #PacersBucks
No surprises here, but Brogdon (back) is OUT tonight. #PacersBucks
In addition to Brogdon (back spasms) being doubtful tonight, add McConnell (groin) to the list. He’s questionable... McMillan might have suit up #PacersBucks
Just like they did with Thomas Bryant last year, the Wizards may have gotten a steal from the Lakers with Moe Wagner, who made history in Minnesota last night. buff.ly/2Kqonos
A walk through the Orlando airport should be a good enough warning against breeding
Another day. Another blessing!

Never expected Bradley Beal to become this effective driving downhill. Strong defenders just bounce off him.
If the Wizards using cash considerations to acquire a player like Moe Wagner isn't a change from the past, I don't know what is. They used to LOVE trading away picks for cash considerations. It was their favorite. There should be a jersey in the rafters that says 'cash' on it.

Its just one game. It's still early. But the defense I've watched from the #Rockets isn't championship defense. Not even close. They've got a loooooooooong way to go. And while Harden might avg 40 a game that won't be enough

Bradley Beal on his offensive rhythm as of late:
“I’m just being aggressive. I feel like I’m the best way on the floor and I just keep that mentality, honestly. Just keep being aggressive, keep shooting. Hoop looks like it’s big enough to fit four or five basketballs in.”
A very Mo Wagner response to having a career night of 30 pts, 15 rebs
Wagner: “I didn’t do anything special, I guess. We competed hard defensively. I rolled, yeah. I might have to do that more often because it worked out. Yeah. I made some shots.”
