What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
LaMarcus Aldridge said the team was telling him how close he was to 20K points. He told Kevin Durant he needed one more basket to reach it. KD wanted to be the one to deliver the assist, but they trapped him. Aldridge said he laughed after the basket because he knew he had it. – 11:13 PM

James Harden (29 PTS, 8 REBS, 8 ASTS), Kevin Durant (22 PTS, 10 REBS), LaMarcus Aldridge (21 PTS, 8 REBS) & the Nets are back in the winning column. Brooklyn shot 41 free throws in the victory & when things got close, a 15-6 run to finish was enough. – 10:07 PM

End of the third quarter: Nets lead the Pacers 85-74. Brooklyn has taken control of this game a few times only to let Indy back in. Does that continue in the fourth? Aldridge has 12 points, Harden 24 and KD 22. – 9:34 PM

James Harden (24 PTS, 6 ASTS), Kevin Durant (22 PTS, 8 REBS) & the Nets are in cruise control. LaMarcus Aldridge (12 PTS) & Patty Mills (5 PTS) have provided a spark for Brooklyn in the period. The coast looks clear for the Nets to secure a win. – 9:34 PM

END OF Q3: Nets 85, Pacers 74 — LaMarcus Aldridge has scored all 12 of his points in the third quarter and is 6-of-7 from the field in the period. Nets began pulling away, as they have more talent on the floor than the Pacers, who are missing three starters. – 9:34 PM

Aldridge is one of seven active players to reach the mark. At media day, Durant said when Aldridge suddenly retired, he was pissed because he knew how close LA was to the milestone. Was looking forward to seeing him hit it and he got to be on the court with him for it. – 9:31 PM
