What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Cayleigh Griffin @cayleighgriffin
Christian Wood is DOMINATING to start. #Rockets were down 10-0. He’s got 13 points now with Houston up 19-18. – 8:29 PM

Alykhan Bijani @Rockets_Insider
#Rockets ran Cash as an ATO. Instead of someone coming off both screens with an Iverson Cut like the play usually starts with, Jalen Green slashed inside after one screen and dunked it down. Great wrinkle by Stephen Silas. pic.twitter.com/XiJAk4obsL8:27 PM

Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Through 4 1/2 minutes, the Rockets were 0 for 7. Have gone on a 13-2 run to the lead since. Wood 3 of 3 on 3s. Was 1 of 6 from deep on Friday. – 8:26 PM

The Rockets, once down 10-0, take a 15-14 lead after a Tate dunk on a nice feed from Porter. Christian Wood has hit 3 threes – 8:24 PM

After Joe Burrow helped lead the Bengals to a Super Bowl appearance with a win over the Chiefs in the AFC Championship, Warriors guard Damion Lee chimed in on Twitter. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/01/30/ben…8:18 PM

Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Steve Kerr said the primary goal for the Warriors was to get off to a better start than in the previous meeting. This qualifies. Warriors up 10-0 through nearly four minutes. – 8:16 PM

I’m not sure Josh Christopher can ever start. His pregame handshakes with the starters are just too good. – 8:09 PM

Unbelievably large Warriors fan turnout at Toyota Center. More than Lakers, Spurs records. – 8:01 PM

Kelly Iko @KellyIkoNBA
This is the last time Steph and Klay have played together in the building since that epic 2019 Game 6. Sheesh. – 8:01 PM

Seth Curry just flipped the ball into the basket while heading to the bench for this timeout. He hasn’t found his shot since coming back from ankle soreness. He’s 0-of-5 tonight after going 3-for-10 Saturday against Sacramento. – 7:48 PM

As expected, Klay Thompson will rest the back end of the back to back tomorrow. – 6:43 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Warriors rolling out a Looney-Wiggins-Thompson front court makes sense against the Rockets. Key question tonight among reserves: Can Jordan Poole keep playing well? – 6:36 PM

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Mark Daigneault said he’s gonna keep the starters vs Blazers a secret but told us to tweet our guesses.
Okay Mark, I’ll call my shot:
Giddey
Mann
Dort
Bazley
Favors
The wildcard is Wiggins. – 6:35 PM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Stephen Curry, Moses Moody, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, and Kevon Looney are the Warriors starters today against the Houston Rockets. – 6:34 PM

Kerr said. Otto Porter Jr. sitting out first game of the back-to-back. – 6:32 PM

Kelly Iko @KellyIkoNBA
Feels like a good time for a trade deadline mailbag. Fire away #Rockets theathletic.com/3103745/2022/0…6:32 PM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Moses Moody will start tonight. “Wanted to get him on the floor for his shooting and defensive versatility,” Kerr sai. – 6:31 PM

NBA Math @NBA_Math
How significant has this Stephen Curry slump been?
His Rolling Player Rating has bottomed out at levels not seen from his since during the 2013-14 season. The 2013-14 season was Curry’s first All-Star campaign and he celebrated his 26th birthday during it. pic.twitter.com/eP6Ig3gzwz6:31 PM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
With Otto Port Jr. out tonight, Moses Moody will start. This is a reward for his strong play in the G League. – 6:30 PM

Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Moses Moody, who played in the G League last night, will start for the Warriors tonight – 6:30 PM

Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Moses Moody will start tonight in place of Otto Porter Jr.
All other starters are the same. – 6:30 PM

Christian Wood is also good to go for Houston (migraine). – 6:21 PM

Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets center Christian Wood went through a pregame walk-through and is over yesterday’s migraine headaches. – 6:21 PM

Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Christian Wood went through walk-through today and will play tonight, per Silas. A migraine kept him out of practice yesterday – 6:21 PM

Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Kevin Porter Jr. has cleared health and safety protocols and will play tonight. – 6:20 PM

Cayleigh Griffin @cayleighgriffin
Christian Wood will also play after missing the last two days with migranes. – 6:20 PM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
I always set out thinking, “This week’s Warriors mailbag is going to be pretty brief.” Then, I get a ton of great questions and write 1,300-plus words. This week was no exception: sfchronicle.com/sports/warrior…6:19 PM

Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Rockets coach Stephen Silas says Kevin Porter Jr. will be available tonight against Golden State after clearing health and safety protocols. But he’ll be on a bit of a minute-restriction, Silas says. – 6:19 PM

Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler

The Spurs have recalled Zach Collins to San Antonio, but he remains out for tomorrow’s game against Golden State (return to competition reconditioning), per team. – 6:16 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
I get the Bengals comparison from a small-market-gets-superstar standpoint.
But the Bengals went from one of the worst teams in the league to the Super Bowl. Ja Morant and the Grizzlies beat the Warriors in the play-in last season and took game 1 at Utah. Not exactly the same. – 6:01 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Taylor Jenkins says Joel Embiid’s absence shifts the focus to their 3-point weapons — Harris, Maxey, Curry. Said Philly thrives in the paint and in transition, and they have weapons that can fire from 3 – 5:36 PM

Kind of a wild stat: The Suns’ league-best road record (19-4) is better than every NBA team’s HOME record except for the Warriors (24-4) – 3:59 PM

Had a fun conversation with @Kelly Iko about the Rockets at the deadline: cap logistics, fake trades, present vs. future and much more @The Athletic @TheAthleticHOU: theathletic.com/3102171/2022/0…3:19 PM

Matt Williams @StatsWilliams
Joel Embiid finished January with 476 points in 450 minutes, good for 1.058 points per minute.
Over the last 25 seasons, the only players with a higher points per minute in a calendar month are (min. 300 minutes):
Stephen Curry (Feb. 2016)
James Harden (Jan. & Nov. 2019) – 3:16 PM

JD Shaw @JShawNBA
The Fort Wayne Mad Ants have acquired Jordan Bell from the Santa Cruz Warriors in exchange for a 2022 first-round pick. – 2:35 PM

Mad Ants have acquired 6-7 foward Jordan Bell, who began his career with the Warriors, from the Santa Cruz Warriors for a 2022 first-round pick in the G League draft (originally owned by Texas). – 2:32 PM

You know this rivalry has taken a hit when we don’t get a celebrity crew chief. Give me Scott Foster, Tony Brothers, Marc Davis, or Ed Malloy. Hell, I’ll take James Capers at this point – 2:06 PM
