What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Dave Early @DavidEarly “…when you look at me and Steph I just feel like we’re able to do things out there that keeps the normal person walking down the street, gives them hope that basketball can be for them as well.”
-#nets more from Kyrie Irving on his special bond with #warriors Steph Curry AM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Kyrie went on a soliloquy about how much he respects Steph. A key part: “I just feel like we’re able to do things out there that keeps the normal person walking down the street, gives them hope that basketball can be for them as well. He’s just able to do so many special things” – 12:38 AM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Kyrie Irving on Warriors’ fans booing him: “This crowd, we know each other well. It’s not any surprise when I come in here. Different arena, obviously. But it’s still the same court & group of fans that have a reason to cheer for their team. They’ve been very successful.” – 12:30 AM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Kyrie Irving on the Warriors: “They’re legends. They got a few legends on their team. They’re making high-level basketball plays.” – 12:26 AM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050 VanVleet on Siakam: “He’s been at an all-NBA level for a while now. He carries a huge load for our franchise and he takes a lot of heat when he doesn’t play well, that’s the way it goes, but he’s been playing at a really high level on both ends of the floor.” – 12:08 AM
Dave Early @DavidEarly “I love Steph Man, the guy has completely revolutionized the game….but when he caught fire man, everybody was on notice…you wouldn’t be a true student of the game if you’re not watching somebody like that.”
-Kyrie Irving on the thrill of competing against Steph Curry AM

Dave Early @DavidEarly “Some people are gonna agree, and some people are gonna disagree. He’s entitled to his opinion and I respect it.”
-Kyrie Irving on people who disagree he should have been allowed to play in GSW tonight due to vaccination status – 11:58 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis Kyrie Irving said the late foul call on him could’ve gone either way, but he did see on replay that his foot was in the way and he inadvertently tripped Klay Thompson. He admitted “That’s going to be a foul any day of the week, any game. Sorry.” #Nets #NBA #Warriors11:54 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050 Fred VanVleet: “You know me, man. Hey, it was only 53 (minutes)… I’m sure I would’ve been a lot more tired if we lost.” – 11:54 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly Kyrie Irving says respects people who disagree he should have been allowed to play in San Francisco tonight. – 11:54 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 I thought Bam gave Miami some really good energy in those OT’s on the boards and defensively
But Bam and PJ Tucker should not have the same # of field goal attempts on a 7 quarter night – 11:53 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly “We can’t be fragile….there’s no time to be fragile.”
Says Kyrie Irving when asked about the current four game losing streak. Says it’s not the first time he, James Harden or Steve Nash have lost a few in a row before. – 11:53 PM

Sopan Deb @SopanDeb The Nets tanking to get out of home court advantage in the playoffs so Irving can play is one of the most amazing things in the history of the league. – 11:26 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis Why didn’t Steve Nash challenge that late foul call on Kyrie Irving? Hesitates. “I’ll get someone in trouble if I say why…A little bird said don’t challenge it.” Said refs told him it was “100 percent” a foul. #Nets #Warriors11:20 PM
Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob Jimmy Butler was the only Heat player over 50 minutes.
Minutes for the Raptors starters reads 54-56-56-57-56
Please get them some help – 11:18 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Nash said he was told by the officials that it was absolutely a foul by Kyrie on Klay at the end. That is why he chose not to challenge the play. – 11:13 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed Steve Nash on not challenging the foul call on Kyrie Irving down the stretch: “I don’t want anybody to get in trouble. A little birdie said don’t challenge.” – 11:12 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Minutes for the Raptors starters tonight:
Siakam – 56:31
Anunoby – 55:49
Barnes – 56:20
Trent Jr. – 55:39
VanVleet – 53:31
All five went the distance from at least 8:44 to play in regulation through all three overtime periods. – 11:12 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen ‘Topes win 124-120. Best game of the year. 33 for Trent, 21-13-6-4-4 for Siakam, huge shots for VanVleet down that stretch. What a game. – 11:09 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Laborious but successful seven-game homestand for the Warriors: 6-1 record. Only loss was to a Pacers team without its starters. Steph Curry struggled to find his shot. No Draymond Green. Klay Thompson gaining a rhythm. Depth/defense continues to show. Great week for Wiggins. – 11:08 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Final: Warriors beat the Nets 110-106. Weird game with a weird ending. We’ll ask Nash about challenging that call on Kyrie Irving. Irving had 32 points tonight and carried BK down the stretch. We’ll see about all the injuries as well. – 11:07 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron FINAL: Warriors escape with the 110-106 win over the Nets. After totaling just 12 points through the first three quarters, Curry and Thompson combined for 23 in the fourth. – 11:06 PM

Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears Nets say Kyrie Irving has scored a season-high 32 points, eclipsing his previous high of 30 points in his last game played on 1/23 at Minnesota. – 10:59 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed Kessler Edwards chased Stephen Curry around screens and prevented him from getting the ball, then switched onto Kevon Looney and blocked him at the rim. Impressive performance from the rookie, who is bringing the 3-and-D dynamic this Nets team has needed all season. – 10:47 PM

Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun Jimmy Butler has the fourth triple-double against the Raptors this season. Butler also had the third a couple of weeks ago. Tobias Harris and Kevin Durant have also done it. Russell Westbrook also did it twice within a month (plus a day) last season against the Raptors. – 10:43 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Patty Mills drills a corner 3 and then finds James Johnson the next time down to tie the game at 93 with 6:17 left. Golden State calls timeout. Completely forgot Kenny Atkinson is on their staff. – 10:37 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed Timeout, Warriors: Patty Mills hits a 3, James Johnson gets a transition bucket and we’ve got a tie game, 93 apiece, with 6:17 to go in the 4th quarter. Kyrie Irving’s got 27 points and the Warriors are sending extra bodies at him. If he keeps getting help, the Nets can win this. – 10:37 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing Jayson Tatum on Robert Williams: “It’s incredible. Just what he brings us every night.”
Tatum said Williams is “starting to realize how important to us that he is and us going forward and what we ultimately want to accomplish.” – 10:36 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Jayson Tatum on Rob Williams: “He’s been great. He’s a key to where we want to go this season. And that three he took (big smile). We’ve been on him, because he practices them. If he had made that, we would have gone crazy.” – 10:34 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Jayson Tatum on the All-Star voting: “I appreciate everyone who voted for me. I got KD, Giannis and Embiid in front of me for the next few years. That’s a task I look forward to. I appreciate everyone who votes for me or buys that #0 jersey.” – 10:31 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Jayson Tatum didn’t hear what the courtside fan said. He said he just heard Marcus Smart ask the fan to keep it about basketball. Tatum said he doesn’t get involved in that, beyond waving at kids who yell his name. – 10:29 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer End of the third quarter: Nets trail the Warriors 78-76. Kyrie is rallying the Nets. Has 25 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Had a pair of back-to-back 3s, including a four-point play. – 10:21 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Kyrie trying to pull the Nets back into this one down the stretch. He’s got 25 points and just drove right by Klay for two more. The Nets bench is into it now — everybody is standing up on the side. The momentum has turned. – 10:19 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron After taking a 72-53 lead with 7:20 left, the Warriors give up a 19-4 run to let the Nets back within 4. Would help Golden State a lot of Steph Curry or Klay Thompson could knock down a shot. – 10:19 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Love or loathe Kyrie, he sure knows how to play. Making clutch 3’s. Driving baseline past Klay. Keeping the underhanded Nets in the game. – 10:19 PM

Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun What a weird play. Looked like OG Anunoby both planted wrong and buckled a bit but also got pushed a bit by PJ Tucker. – 10:17 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed Kyrie Irving’s got back-to-back 3s, and this one’s a 4-point play. Irving is on fire here at the end of the third quarter and the Nets have made this a two-possession game. – 10:17 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps PJ Tucker seemed to knock OG Anunoby down into a travel call with 30.8 seconds left and Heat up 2
Seems odd – 10:15 PM

Tom Westerholm @Tom_NBA Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have scored 25 points or more in the same game four times since Christmas Day. They did just twice prior. – 10:14 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050 122 of PJ Tucker’s 137 3PA this season have come from the corners, where he’s shooting a ridiculous 47%. He’s 3-for-5 from there tonight, including what may have been the dagger. Best in the business. – 10:13 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS Stephen Curry hasn’t gone more than a few minutes without shaking or rubbing his right hand. Has 5 points in 21 minutes, on 2/9 shooting.
Warriors 74, Nets 56, 5:50 Q3 – 10:07 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin Doc Rivers liked the way Seth Curry played tonight. He said he let the game come to him. It was tough for him to get into a rhythm with the team canceling shootaround this morning. #Sixers10:05 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are a combined 4-for-19. I would not have expected them to shoot like that and for the Nets to be still be down 19. – 10:04 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps Raptors were plus-11 with VanVleet on bench to start second quarter
He’s resting now to start the fourth as well – 9:48 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat Jimmy Butler up to 29 points, but Heat down 85-75 to Raptors going into fourth. Adebayo one rebound from a double-double. (Although a video review could change score.) – 9:43 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS At the half: Warriors 54, Nets 47
-Shocker: Have been much better without Steph/Klay
-Wiggins (17pts, 7rebs, 2blks, 2stls, +20) has been terrific
-GP2 and Poole (10pts) making positive plays
-Curry 2 points, -10, Thompson 5 points, -13 – 9:41 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron HALFTIME: Warriors up 54-47 on the Nets. Wiggins (17 points on 7-for-11 shooting) doing the heavy lifting as Steph Curry (2 points on 1-for-7 shooting) and Klay Thompson (5 points on 1-for-6 shooting) struggle mightily. – 9:39 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Steph Curry, Klay Thompson go a combined 2/13 shooting in the first half, but defense remains steady, Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole combine for 27 points and Warriors lead Nets 54-47. – 9:39 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed HALFTIME: Warriors 54, Nets 47
Some valiant runs by the Nets, who were powered by 11 each from Kyrie Irving and Patty Mills, but the Warriors have a lot of firepower. Steph Curry & Klay Thompson are just 2-of-13 combined, but Andrew Wiggins is 7/11 for 17 points. – 9:38 PM
Ryan McDonough @McDNBA Andrew Wiggins was hesitant to get vaccinated but decided to get the 💉 so he could compete for his team, which currently has the 2nd best record in the NBA
Meanwhile, ABC just showed a calendar of the games Kyrie Irving isn’t eligible for, including 7 of the Nets last 8… – 9:38 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Yeah this looks like second night of back to back
Other than Jimmy Butler, everybody else seems kind of out of it – 9:32 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron After seizing a 13-point lead early in the second quarter, the Warriors gave up a 19-4 to dig a 2-point hole. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are a combined 2-for-13 from the field. – 9:28 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed Timeout, Warriors: The Nets have come back to take a 41-39 lead here at the Chase Center. Patty Mills missed his first 5 threes but made 3 out of 4 and now has 11 points. The Nets have found balance here in the 2nd quarter: Their efficiency & rebounds are up, turnovers are down. – 9:26 PM

Will Guillory @WillGuillory Final: Celtics 107, Pelicans 97
Alvarado 19 pts (career-high) & 4 stls
Hernangomez 14 pts
Hart 10 pts & 13 rebs
Tatum and Brown combined for 69 points in an easy win over the shorthanded Pels. The Pels are now 2-11 in games BI has missed this season. – 9:19 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Celtics win 107-97
Tatum – 40/8/7, 3 steals
Brown – 31 points
Rob – 8/16/4/1/4
Smart – 11 assists
Richardson – 10 points

Alvarado – 19 points
Hernangomez – 14 points
Hart – 10/13/2, 3 steals

Pelicans – 15 turnovers – 9:19 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb Celtics beat Pelicans 107-97. 38 points for Tatum, 31 points for Brown, season-high 12 assists for Marcus Smart. – 9:18 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13 Final: Celtics 107, Pelicans 97
Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown combined for 69 points.
New Orleans is 2-11 in games without Brandon Ingram this season.
Jose Alvarado had 19 points and 4 steals. – 9:16 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps Pelicans are down some guys, but this is a nice win for the Celtics in the second half of a road back-to-back. Dominant performances by Tatum, Brown and Robert Williams to wrap up a 3-1 week. Miami will be in Boston Monday. – 9:16 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer This is probably a record for them but @tps_hsbb has three alums on the court right now in Kyrie Irving, DeAndre’ Bembry and Jonathan Kuminga. Wonder if that’s a record for any HS come to think of it. – 9:14 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds 24 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and a block by halftime, this season:
Nikola Jokic
And tonight, Jimmy Butler
(Also until tonight, nobody has done all that in the first half for the Heat in the digital play-by-play era that started in 1996.) – 9:12 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer End of the first quarter: Warriors lead the Nets 31-20. Andrew Wiggins has 14 points and is putting on a show. Kyrie Irving with just five points and Nic Claxton with seven. Awful first quarter for Brooklyn offensively. Shot 32 percent from the field, 1-for-7 from 3. – 9:08 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC Let me know when y’all ready to throw Ja Morant’s layup package/finishing in the discussion with Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry as the best in the NBA. I’m ready to talk about it when y’all are. 😶‍🌫️ – 9:07 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Rough first quarter for Nets without Harden. Kyrie is just 1-for-3 — and got a lot of boos after being introduced.
Patty Mills is 0-for-5. Nets just 6/20 from the field and 1-for-7 from beyond the arc. Not a lot of answers offensively. – 9:06 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Tonight is the fourth time Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have gone for 30 or more points in the same game.
That tied Larry Bird and Kevin McHale in 1986-87 for the most games of 30 or more in the same outing. – 9:04 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Nets trail the Warriors 26-18 with 1:08 left in the first quarter. Kyrie Irving is 1-for-3 to start while Patty Mills is 0-for-5. Nets shooting just 30 percent as a team and 14 from 3. Andrew Wiggins has 12 points. – 9:03 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez From @ESPNStatsInfo: Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum each have 30+ points tonight. It is the 4th time this season they have each scored 30 points in a game.
That matches Larry Bird and Kevin McHale in 1986-87 for the most such games in a season in Celtics history. – 9:03 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps Jimmy Butler’s chewing the Raptors up at the moment
He’s got 24 and Raptors lead 59-53 at halftime
Trent’s got 16 for Toronto – 9:02 PM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Among what Warriors fans are saying while Kyrie Irving was at the free-throw line. One fan: “Get Vaxxed!” Another fan: “Why aren’t you boosted, Kyrie?” – 8:58 PM
Abby Chin @tvabby #Celtics start the 4th quarter by doubling up the #Pelicans 10-5. Udoka going with the starters, plus Josh Richardson instead of Al Horford, and they’ve have taken control of this game back. – 8:56 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Probably not enough time, but Tatum is on triple-double watch:
28 points
7 rebounds
6 assists
Also, 2 steals and only 2 turnovers. – 8:54 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed The Warriors are now sending two at Kyrie Irving or Patty Mills when they have the ball. Mills passes to Kessler Edwards, who travels on the first dribble. This is where it begins. – 8:52 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050 VanVleet just got more than 6 minutes of rest and the Raptors were +11 with him on the bench. Huge. Great stuff from that hybrid unit. – 8:50 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen When’s the last time the Raptors rest VanVleet for more than 6 minutes to start the 2nd? Even 5? – 8:49 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps Boston was firmly in control of this game, and then a 36-point third quarter for New Orleans let the Pelicans get back into it. Still, New Orleans has no way to stop either Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown, who have gotren whatever they’ve wanted. – 8:49 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Celtics lead 78-70 after three
Tatum – 28/7/4
Brown – 24 points
Rob – 13 rebounds
Smart – 8 assists
Celtics – 51.7% shooting
Celtics – 13 turnovers
Alvarado – 17 points
Temple – 12 points
Hernangomez – 10 points
Pelicans – 6-27 three-pointers
Pelicans – 10 turnovers – 8:49 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer Looks like @adaniels33 was wise to get to the team store and buy a Jose Alvarado jersey while there are still some left. Crowd loved his drive past Horford for a difficult layup. Somehow #Pelicans are only down 8 going into 4Q. Alvarado 17 pts – 8:47 PM
Christian Clark @cclark_13 Not sure how Jose Alvarado got that one to fall over Al Horford. He’s got 17 points, a career high, headed into the fourth quarter. – 8:46 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed More boos for Kyrie Irving, who had Steph Curry in an iso from the same spot he hit the Game 7 winner. He took Curry off the dribble and finished at the basket, and one. Crowd silenced. – 8:46 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins End of the 1st Quarter: Grizzlies 30, Wizards 15
Caldwell-Pope: 7 pts.
Morant: 10 pts., 1 asst.
Second-chance points: Grizzlies 14, Wizards: 0
Points off turnovers: Grizzlies 9, Wizards 5 – 8:35 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Jimmy Butler 5 of 5 from the field in the first
Looked super good finishing around the rim
Focus is slowing down Gary Trent, but soft switching limiting locking in on that matchup – 8:34 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann Lot of places to blame for that first half (pretty much anyone but Harris and Green), but Maxey and Curry got cooked by Mitchell and Haliburton.
Korkmaz lost Haliburton off ball for a 3, too. Guard defense isn’t a strength of this team but that was particularly rough. – 8:34 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Greetings from Chase Center. Last time I was in SF, I learned the country was shutting down upon landing. Nets-Warriors about to tip. No James Harden. What a week for him. Will see if Kyrie Irving can lead BK to a win without him. Updates to come. – 8:34 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC Other than Ja Morant, Kyrie Irving is the only other point guard in the NBA who can consistently dribble, attack and finish with the off-hand without going back to the dominant hand. Ja is as good as I’ve seen at that. Crazy skill. – 8:29 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Jimmy Butler has been taking it right into the teeth of the defense to start this one
Important against this Raptors team – 8:24 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Steve Kerr believed the Nets handling Kyrie Irving as a part-time player “is much harder” than integrating Klay Thompson back. Given Kerr’s experience as a player and coach for talented teams, I asked him if talent is enough to overcome continuity issues PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC That was a scary fall for Steven Adams. Caldwell-Pope fell right onto leg. Right in brand, Steven Adams bends down to tie his shoe and stays in the game. – 8:16 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Two PJ Tucker baseline drive and kicks to start for a Gabe Vincent corner three
Such a valuable asset for a corner specialist – 8:14 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel Pelicans showed heart in trimming a 19-point deficit to 7 early in 2nd quarter, but Celtics closed out first half on a 24-12 run.
Halftime score: 52-34.
Jayson Tatum (21 points) and Jaylen Brown (17 points) have dominated. Jose Alvarado only Pelican in double figures with 10. – 8:04 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory End of the 1st half: Celtics 52, Pelicans 34
Alvarado 10 pts
Hernangomez 8 pts
Hart 5 pts & 8 rebs
Tatum and Brown combined to score 38 points as Boston dominated the half in just about every way. NOLA shot 29.5 percent from the field, 2-19 on 3s. It’s ugly in the SKC right now – 8:04 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Celtics lead 52-34 at the half
Tatum – 21 points
Brown – 17 points
Rob – 10 rebounds, 2 blocks
Celtics – 50% shooting
Celtics – 6 turnovers
Alvarado – 10 points
Hernangomez – 8 points
Pelicans – 29.5% shooting
Pelicans – 2-19 three-pointers
Pelicans – 6 turnovers – 8:03 PM

Jay King @ByJayKing Two games after nearly beating the Kings by themselves, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are outscoring the Pelicans 38-34 at halftime by themselves. – 8:00 PM

Clay Bailey @claybailey9 Here are your starters for Grizzlies vs. WIzards. For Wash: Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Kuzma, Thomas Bryant, Bradley Beal, Spencer Dinwiddie.
Grizz staring Jaren Jackson Jr., John Konchar, Steven Adams, Desmond Bane and Ja Morant.
Please set your fantasy lineups accordinly. – 7:57 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Steve Nash on Kyrie Irving being a part-time player: “It hasn’t been as strange for our group. It hasn’t been strange at all in some weird way. It actually feels normal because we’ve had so many interruptions and injuries.” – 7:55 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies Starting 5s for tonight’s game
Wizards: Dinwiddie, Beal, Caldwell-Pope, Kuz, Bryant
Grizzlies: Ja, Bane, Konchar, Trip, Adams – 7:42 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez The 15 points is tied for the Pels 3rd-lowest scoring quarter of the season.
Reminder: In their three lowest-scoring 1Qs of the year (14, 16 and 16), the Pels came back to win.
They need to slow down Jaylen Brown (12) and Jayson Tatum (11) for that to happen tonight. – 7:38 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Celtics lead 27-15 after one
Brown – 12 points
Tatum – 11 points
Celtics – 50% shooting
Celtics – 3 turnovers
Hernangomez – 6 points
Alvarado – 3 points
Pelicans – 21.7% shooting
Pelicans – 1-12 three-pointers
Pelicans – 3 turnovers – 7:37 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins The Wizards’ starting lineup will be different tonight in Memphis. Wes Unseld Jr. will go with Spencer Dinwiddie, Bradley Beal, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Kuzma and Thomas Bryant. – 7:33 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Tatum is going to have logged a full Tour de France by the end of the season, with as much time as he spends on the bike. – 7:30 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum already have 22 of Boston’s first 26 points (Brown still has a free throw coming after that and-one).
The Pels have 8 as a team. – 7:27 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing Al Horford does so much right on defense. Knows when to shade over, when not to provide help, when to switch, when to lay back. Such a smart player. – 7:22 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing Jayson Tatum (11 points) and Jaylen Brown (five) have all of the Celtics’ points so far. Together, they are up 16-4 on the Pelicans. – 7:19 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Herb Jones was all over Tatum, but Tatum buried the fallaway anyway.
For those who haven’t watch much, Herb Jones is already pushing All-Defense levels as a rookie. He’s terrific. – 7:19 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat VanVleet is good to go for Raptors. Toronto starting lineup tonight in Miami: VanVleet, Trent Jr., Barnes, Anunoby, Siakam. – 7:13 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps VanVleet is available and starting for the Raptors in Miami tonight along with Trent, Barnes, Anunoby and Siakam. – 7:13 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Boston ran their typical opening set: Tatum backscreening for Rob. But Smart threw it to where not even Rob could catch it. – 7:12 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater The Warriors went after Patty Mills in free agency this past summer before he decided on Brooklyn. Steve Kerr: “Seems like our kind of guy. I’m a huge fan. Great player, leader. – 7:00 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Steve Kerr said what the Nets are doing in trying to re-integrate Kyrie Irving is much tougher than bringing Klay Thompson back after such a long time away. Cites lack of continuity, and the unprecedented situation overall as the greatest hurdles. – 6:58 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA Celtics starters tonight:
Robert Williams
Al Horford
Jayson Tatum
Jaylen Brown
Marcus Smart
Pelicans starters:
Willy Hernangomez
Herbert Jones
Garrett Temple
Josh Hart
Devonte’ Graham – 6:42 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat Raptors say Fred VanVleet is probable tonight vs. Heat pending pregame workout. Jimmy Butler, who was listed as probable, will play. – 6:39 PM
