Well, this game got so out of hand that the #Pacers actually made history for all of the wrong reasons. LaMelo Ball and Co. were dominant as the #Hornets scored 158 points in this win! My full 📸 gallery here —> https://t.co/ZSy3rwZD7D pic.twitter.com/awrcZRBINB1:07 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Sunday’s matchup between the Pistons & Cavs was a look at the NBA’s future. @Kelsey Russo and I had a discussion about Cade Cunningham and Evan Mobley as the game played out. It started with how damn good Mobley is, and ended with how special Cade is:

Brad Botkin @bradbotkincbs
2020 NBA Draft turning out to be a monster.
Lottery: Edwards, LaMelo, Patrick Williams, Okoro, Okongwu, Toppin, Avdija, Vassell, Haliburton
Mid to late first round: Cole Anthony, Bey, Maxey, Quickley, McDaniels, Bane
Wiseman still a wild card. – 11:20 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Asked Cade about going against Mobley, and if that’s something he thought about: “I knew that would be one of the narratives of the game, but I try not to focus in on that kind of thing too much. I can’t play Evan Mobley’s game, and Evan Mobley can’t play my game better than me.” – 9:00 PM

Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs Evan Mobley doesn’t have many weaknesses. But free throws haven’t been great. – 7:48 PM

Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
At the half, #Cavs lead the Pistons 55-49. Cavs shot 47.8% from the field and 33.3% from 3 in the first half.
Darius Garland has 14 pts and 4 assists. He scored 12 of his 14 pts in the second quarter. Evan Mobley has 9 pts and 6 rebounds. Cade Cunningham has not scored yet. – 7:20 PM

Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Evan Mobley just pulled off a 19-foot step back against tough defense…
He’s gonna be the freaking boogeyman – 6:44 PM

Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs lead the Pistons, 29-24, at the end of the first quarter. Pistons went to the bench early, following Cleveland’s 15-0 start. The Pistons bench scored 21 of their 24 points in the first quarter. Evan Mobley led the Cavs with 7 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. – 6:40 PM

Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
At the end of the first, #Cavs lead the Pistons 29-24 after Evan Mobley made 1 of his free throws. Cavs had a 15-0 run through the first 4 minutes of the game. Cavs shot 13-of-27 (48.1%) from the field and 1-of-7 (14.3%) from 3.
Mobley with a team-high 7 points and 4 rebounds. – 6:38 PM

Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
Evan Mobley is ridiculous. – 6:31 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Casey isn’t surprised by Evan Mobley’s season. “You saw what he’s doing now and he’s still not a finished product. He hasn’t stretched the floor like he will be able to. Strength is a factor, he will grow into his body … he has every skill that you look for in a big man.” – 4:27 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Final: Clippers 115, #Hornets 90
LaMelo 23 pts, 10 ast, 6 rebs
Miles Bridges 18 pts, 9 rebs
Up next: at Boston on Wednesday – 3:24 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Halftime: Clippers 51, #Hornets 47
Rough shooting so far for the Hornets. They’ve made 34 percent and it feels worse than that.
Miles Bridges 13 pts, 4 rebs
PJ Washington 10 pts, 5 rebs
LaMelo 9 pts, 5 ast, 4 rebs – 2:07 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
They’re going to review that shot clock violation at a later minute. Close with Plumlee appearing to beat the clock on a possession LaMelo Ball threw it off the glass to no one in particular. – 1:58 PM

James Plowright @British_Buzz
For a team with very little going offensively that quarter I thought LaMelo Ball was fantastic breaking down the Clippers defense – 1:39 PM
