Jovan Buha @jovanbuha Final: Pelicans 123, Lakers 95
The Lakers drop to 27-33, starting their post-ASB stretch 0-2. They were outscored 82-58 over the final 26 minutes of the game. LeBron James finished with 32 points. The game ended in a chorus of boos.
Up next: vs. Dallas on Tuesday. – 12:28 AM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS Pretend this was legal. Who says no:
The Lakers agree to bench LeBron and AD for the rest of the year. The Pelicans waive their 2023 swap rights and their right to defer the 2024 pick the Lakers owe them to 2025.
Pels would basically guarantee themselves a top-10 pick this year – 12:22 AM
Marc Stein @TheSteinLine Ingram is just GIVING it to the Lakers. Goodness. No spirit or fight out there from the home team.
Gotta factor in the injuries but man … it is astonishing to see a LeBron James team this punchless.
He’s never had less help and never needed more. – 11:56 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha Third quarter: Pelicans 95, Lakers 65
The third quarter was a calamity of errors — turnovers, missed layups, boos. LA’s body language and effort said it all. In a disappointing season full of lows, this is a new low point. LA is up to 21 turnovers — LeBron & Russ each have 7. – 11:55 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha Halftime: Pelicans 51, Lakers 40
Awful end to the half for LA, who was outscored 10-3 over the final 2:31 to turn a 4-point deficit into an 11-point deficit. LeBron James has 13 points. No other Laker is in double figures. LA has 16 turnovers to just 8 assists. – 11:08 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory End of the 1st half: Pelicans 51, Lakers 40
Ingram 11 pts
McCollum 7 pts (3-9 FG)
Valanciunas 6 pts & 6 rebs
One of the ugliest halves basketball I’ve seen all year. Lakers turned the ball over 16 times. The Pels shot 4-14 on 3s, 5-10 on FTs. LeBron and Russ have been rough. – 11:07 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Four turnovers apiece for LeBron and Westbrook now, as LAL’s total climbs to 13.
LAL got within 1 before the most recent 2 TO’s sparked a 6-0 NOP run to put them up 40-33. – 10:56 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel For instance, did you guys catch Carmelo Anthony lazily double CJ McCollum without any regard for Jonas Valanciunas (Melo’s man) who walked into the lane totally unabated and scored the lay-in over LeBron? – 10:45 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha First quarter: Pelicans 24, Lakers 20
The Lakers had nine turnovers in the first quarter — seven of which came from their starters (three from Dwight Howard). This new starting unit’s offense continues to be subpar. Russell Westbrook has 8 points. LeBron James has 6. – 10:39 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Lakers trail 24-20 after 1.
Last game, they were 0 for 10 from 3 in the 1st Q against the Clippers, and started 0 for 5 tonight until THT hit one in the final minute.
Big issue was turnovers, with Dwight Howard committing 3,
and LeBron, Westbrook and Monk 2 each. – 10:37 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen Ed Malloy on LAC possession after the review: “We deemed that it was a … good blocked shot, so it is technically an inadvertent whistle. Replay review showed that when the whistle was blown Robert Covington had control of the basketball, therefore, Los Angeles got possession.” – 10:32 PM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP Jayson Tatum’s final game as a 23-year old is Tuesday. Tonight he passed Anthony Davis into what will be his final spot, 12th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list for players 23 and under.
Trailing only LeBron, KD, Melo, T-Mac, Kobe, Booker, Shaq, KAT, Dwight, Wiggins and Giannis – 10:27 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer Herbert Jones opens defensively against LeBron. CJ McCollum matched up with Westbrook, a player he’s very familiar with from playing in same division and meeting in West playoffs – 10:13 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone Final: Pistons 127, #Hornets 126 (OT)
Welp, 15-game winning streak over Detroit is snapped.
Terry Rozier 33 pts, 5 rebs, 2 ast
Miles Bridges 29 pts, 10 rebs, 5 ast
LaMelo 17 pts, 7 rebs, 7 ast
Up next: at Milwaukee tomorrow – 9:54 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane The explanation Stephen Silas got as to why the Clippers were awarded possession after their successful challenge is that Robert Covington had the ball when the whistle blew. He didn’t seem pumped with that explanation – 9:51 PM
Tina Cervasio @TinaCervasio We cover all the bases w/@Ian_OConnor tonight on @fox5ny #SportsXtra …from latest baseball talks & how lockout could impact fans, to his newest book. We take a deep dive into #COACHK & how Ian searched to find the answer to how Mike Krzyzewski become the NCAA winningest coach! pic.twitter.com/mky9cfXr9n – 9:40 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin “It’s not just on Coach, it’s not just on Jae. It’s on all of us. We were on desperation trying to come back anyway. I don’t think we should’ve been in that situation.” Devin Booker.
#Suns yield 14-point lead in 118-114 loss to Utah. Up nine in 3rd. #Jazz https://t.co/qw0mcr9GTI pic.twitter.com/BwuLqphjtT – 9:19 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA Frustration challenge here by Jason Kidd. From our vantage point, Dwight Powell sent Canadian teammate Andrew Wiggins flying chasing after a loose ball. Very tough to overturn something like this. – 9:07 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews In addition to Wiggins’ 13 first-half points, he held the Mavericks to 2-of-11 shooting and forced three turnovers when he was the primary defender. He and Gary Payton II held Luka Doncic to just 1-of-8 FG and four turnovers. H/T @ESPNStatsInfo – 9:05 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs Mavs fall into early 18 point hole, cut it to six late in the 2nd, before outscored 8-2 in final 3 min going 1-5. and trail 60-48. GS physical w/Doncic who has 5 TOs, and also picked up tech 13. He and Dinwiddie 12 pts. Curry & Wiggins 13 for GS. 2nd half soon @theeagledallas – 8:52 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon Though LeBron James was officially listed as “questionable” in the earlier game notes, Frank Vogel confirms he’s in. Avery Bradley remains out today against the Pelicans. – 8:24 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU It will be interesting to see how second half rotation shakes out.
Brandon Boston Jr. wasn’t able to do much with his early clock, Amir Coffey never got going after coming in late, going small didn’t help, and Kennard went scoreless. Covington was only reserve in the black +/- – 8:19 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22 Warriors lead Dallas 37-24 at the end of the first quarter. Andrew Wiggins leads all scorers with 11 points. They’ve held the Mavericks to 36.8 percent shooting and have five steals. Golden State is also 6-10 from 3-point range. – 8:15 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Warriors rip off a 27-12 start on the Mavericks. Gary Payton II (despite limping on that shin) active on defense, bothering Doncic. Wiggins hitting shots after quiet return from break. Ball zinging around. Four Curry assists. Has 18 his last four quarters. – 8:02 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone Eric Lewis hits Terry Rozier with a technical foul. Rozier was unhappy he was whistled for a foul on a Cade Cunningham drive. Replays showed Rozier was right. He didn’t foul him. – 7:56 PM
Sirius XM NBA @SiriusXMNBA “It keeps you wanting to comeback to work everyday.”
Warriors All-Star Andrew Wiggins tells Justin Termine & Eddie Johnson about the motivation that comes from playing for a championship #DubNation

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin Sometimes as a journalist you run off the entire play you’re asking about, thus giving the player no room to answer the question.
Devin Booker made something out of my question on the play Jae Crowder turned the ball over. Later said he could’ve called timeout. #Suns pic.twitter.com/dYHThpheoz – 7:15 PM
Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman “Felt like we were in Philly” #Knicks fall to Harden’s #Sixers at Garden as Evan Fournier questions fourth-quarter mindset after late collapse #NBA nypost.com/2022/02/27/kni… – 6:54 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane The Clippers have more players on their roster that were with the Rockets when the 2020 season was suspended than the Rockets.
Robert Covington and Isaiah Hartenstein are currently with the Clips and only Eric Gordon remains from the pre-bubble Rockets – 6:49 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz Danuel House, on what he was trying to do vs. Devin Booker: “Just give him different looks, not make it easy. He’s a talented scorer. Me and Royce made it harder for him.” – 6:46 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet “It’s not just on coach, it’s not just on Jae, it’s on all of us.”
Devin Booker said he could’ve called the timeout on that last possession too, and that the Suns’ awareness in those situations has to be better – 6:45 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet “We just have to move on from it. We preach not wanting to lose 2 games in a row, and that was our mindset and we lost it.”
Devin Booker said he still thinks the Suns are in a good position, just need to regroup – 6:43 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Jae Crowder said he was trying to get Devin Booker the ball on that last play, but he saw Mike Conley creeping up, which is what forced what wound up happening – 6:39 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin “I’m more confused than anybody about the challenges.”
Monty Williams after he challenged a foul on Devin Booker late.
Challenge was successful, but the refs found a foul on Cam Johnson.
Williams said he’s not concerned about fine. Wants more clarity on challenge rule. #Suns pic.twitter.com/DvbGjO7n9x – 6:36 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz Quin Snyder, on finishing the game with House: “With some of the depth that we have, we have opportunities to play guys in certain situations. … Danuel was doing an excellent job. Royce was the first guy up off the bench talking to him.” Said House was making Booker work. – 6:19 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Final: UTA 118, PHX 114
Booker: 30-7-7, 12-24 FG
Cam Johnson: 23-5-4, 7-11 FG
Ayton: 23 Pts, 7 Reb, 11-15 FG
Mitchell: 26 Pts, 5 Ast, 8-20 FG
Suns lose back-to-back games for the first time since Dec. 27 – 6:04 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen Conley does make his assigned 1 FT, and Jazz will win this one.
Two consecutive big wins for the Jazz against their likely first and second round opponents.
House wasn’t considered a “stopper” pre-Utah, but his defensive effort and ability has changed the Jazz dynamic some. – 6:04 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Oh man. What an awful way to lose. Suns got a stop and a rebound, but Crowder throws it over Devin Booker’s head and it’ll be Jazz ball with 2.1 seconds left. Rare lapse in judgement from the vet there – 6:00 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen Timeout, Suns. Jazz are up 110-104, in a really good spot with 3:07 left.
Looks like Gobert will come back in for final 3 min. Can Jazz contain Booker? If they do, they should come out with a win on ABC. – 5:47 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Jordan Clarkson is killing the Suns tonight. He’s got 22 points on 10-of-16 shooting off the bench. Suns back within 6 after Booker’s corner 3, but they need stops now – 5:45 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba Phoenix is still capable of playing at an extremely high level without Paul. One of the reasons is because Booker can play the one at a high level and then you have Johnson/Bridges/Crowder on the floor together. Not many wing trios better – 5:41 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin #Suns open fourth with Holiday, Shamet, Johnson, Crowder and McGee.
#Jazz now have Conley, Clarkson, O’Neale, Gay and Gobert
#Suns down two as Johnson hits 3. Has team-high 23. – 5:31 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Devin Booker’s already at 31 minutes and getting a breather to start the 4Q. I’d imagine he’ll be back in a couple minutes and play the rest of the way through – 5:29 PM
David Locke @DLocke09 House making Booker, who plays all 12 of the quarter, work on every possession has lead to back to back fatigue plays by Booker. A pull up three and not getting back in transition. – 5:23 PM
David Locke @DLocke09 Having a 2nd defender when Royce O’Neale is out of the game is an important addition for the Utah Jazz. Danuel House is doing a great job making Devin Booker work for every foot on the court. – 5:21 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin #Suns 60 #Jazz 56 H.
PHX: Ayton 17 (8-of-10 FGs), Johnson 13, Booker 12. Team: 51.1% FG (4-of-11 from 3). 24 points in the paint.
UTA: Mitchell 11 (3-of-10 FGs), Conley 10. Team: 45.1% FG (8-of-18 from 3). 24 points in the paint.
Turnovers: UTA 6 PHX 4
Lead changes: 4
Ties: 7. – 4:44 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba The Jazz trail the Suns 60-56 at halftime. Mitchell hasn’t been the same since tweaking his lower leg in the first quarter. The burst hasn’t been there. Conley has 10. Ayton has 17 for Phoenix. He’s been great in the second quarter – 4:41 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops Coming out of the half I’d watch if the Jazz make a stronger effort to attack Devin Booker in isolation.
They keep running off screens and getting matched up with Cam Johnson and Mikal Bridges who swallow up Conley and Mitchell’s size.
They can both beat Book off the dribble. – 4:35 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan A few days ago, Quin Snyder said a 20-point lead in the NBA is nothing…
Suns led by 14 with 6:18 left in the first. The game is now tied 32-32.
Booker vs. Mitchell, Whiteside vs. McGee dunk off, both teams shooting well — we’ve got a fun one in Phoenix. – 4:11 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz End 1Q: Jazz 32, Suns 32. Utah closes on a 22-8 run to tie things up. Nice 3 from Gay, beautiful lob by JC to Rudy for a reverse alley-oop. 11p by Don, 10p from Booker. – 4:10 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Hassan Whiteside got JaVale McGee off the dribble with the poster, so McGee gets him back with the put-back slam on the other end and talks to Utah’s bench about it. They were both laughing about it running back down the court – 4:01 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin Cam Johnson guarding Conley. #Suns up 22-10 as Johnson finds Ayton with slip pass off dribble penetration.
Johnson playing like he wants that rookie extension before the start of next season. – 3:55 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz Final: 76ers 125, Knicks 109.
Knicks fall to 25-36 on the season, 12th in the East. They have lost 15 of 18.
• Barrett 24-5-6
• Randle 16-10-7
• Fournier 24 pts
• Quickley 21 & 5
• Embiid 37 & 9 (23-27 FTs)
• Harden 29-10-16
79 combined free-throw attempts in the game. – 3:41 PM
Sirius XM NBA @SiriusXMNBA Is [Devin Booker] going to be more of a facilitator?

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba Big lineup for Phoenix today. Devin Booker at the point, Cam Johnson and Bridges and Crowder all on the wings with Ayton in the middle
Means Mike Conley is going to have to guard way up. I would probably put him on Crowder. – 3:26 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps After 3 here at MSG: 76ers 90, Knicks 89.
3’s attempted by James Harden and Tyrese Maxey: 4-8
3’s attempted by the rest of the 76ers: 2-for-16 (and Georges Niang is 2-for-4).
Embiid has 29/6, Harden 20/7/13/5 for Philly.
Fournier has 24, Knicks shooting 10/24 from 3. – 3:06 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz Evan Fournier has made five 3s tonight, which gives him 178 made 3s on the season, tying him with Allan Houston in 2002-03 for the fifth-most in a single season in Knicks history.
Franchise record is John Starks (217) in 1994-95. Pretty realistic chance Fournier breaks that. – 2:45 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper Harden has 15 points and 10 assists in the first half. Embiid, who ended the half on the floor behind the Knicks bench after trying to block a Fournier 3, has 20 points. Fournier has 14, Barrett 12, Randle 11. Knicks are losing. – 2:16 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz Halftime. 76ers lead the Knicks 65-56.
• Barrett 12-2-5
• Fournier 14 pts
• Randle 11-5-2
• Sims 10 rebs
• Embiid 20 pts
• Harden 15-5-10
