What’s the buzz on Twitter?
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS ‘We are a lucky bunch to have No. 11 back.’
-Stephen Curry, after Klay Thompson’s 33 points, including 16 in a comeback fourth quarter, led the Warriors to victory over the Lakers. – 12:46 AM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis Kyrie Irving will miss the #Nets next four games – 3 at home and one at the #Knicks: “I still wish I could be out there at home. Some people say it’s as simple as go get this this, go get the shot. It’s not as simple as that…..I’m still praying for a better outcome.” #NBA #nyk – 12:22 AM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon Anthony Davis said the trade deadline took weight off of everyone’s shoulders: “This is what we have, let’s go.”
At Friday’s practice, Davis said they realized this is their team, and they had a little more swagger in today’s game than they’ve had a while. – 12:20 AM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Russell Westbrook: “We lost the game but I’m optimistic … for the most part we played the right way.”
AD also felt the way they played tonight is sustainable moving forward, and that type of energy will clearly be needed based on where they are in the standings. – 12:16 AM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang Takeaways and postgame reaction from the Heat’s fifth straight win despite a big fourth-quarter push from Kyrie Irving and the Nets miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia… – 12:10 AM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 If you want to know how good Bam Adebayo is as a defender:
Watch Kyrie Irving go absolutely nuclear in the 4th quarter tonight, yet never have Bam’s man come set him a screen once
Teams scheme around Bam
(So next time this happens, counter with Bam shifting his match-up) pic.twitter.com/e80QofBceL – 11:49 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Kyrie: “I still wish I could be out there at home. And some people say it’s as simple as, “Hey, go get this, go get the shot.” No, it’s not as simple as that for me in my life but ultimately, still praying for a better outcome.” – 11:48 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop DeMar DeRozan: “Just because I have a good game, I always look at all the negative things that happened, things I could’ve did better. There hasn’t been a game where I walked away from it saying, ‘I did everything perfect.’ There’s always room for some type of improvement.” – 11:44 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe DeMar DeRozan struck a bit of a yearning tone while talking about the Bulls injuries tonight: “It’s like a dream. I dream about it every night. Being on a sunny, beautiful island — that’s how I picture it when we get back healthy.” – 11:42 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Vogel cited two killer plays late, where a deflection from Bradley went straight into the hands of Klay for a 3 (LAL were up 6), and a Poole airball came off so hard that AD couldn’t corrall it.
“It’s disappointing we don’t get this W because there were a lot of positive signs.” – 11:31 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly “C’mon now puppeteers…there’s no guilt that I feel, I’m the only player that has to deal with this in NYC ‘because I play there. If I was anywhere else …then it probably wouldn’t be the same circumstances.”
-Kyrie Irving on vax mandates. pic.twitter.com/wx7PPMMVVd – 11:31 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Kyrie says he doesn’t feel guilty when he’s away from Nets. “There’s no guilt that I feel. I’m the only player that has to deal with this in New York City because I play there. If I was anywhere else in another city then it probably wouldn’t be the same circumstances.” – 11:29 PM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko Klay Thompson tonight:
✅ 33 PTS
✅ 5 REB
✅ 5-9 3P
It’s Thompson’s first 30-point game since Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals.
He and Stephen Curry (24) have each scored at least 20 points in the same game 187 times, the second-most such games in NBA history by a backcourt duo. pic.twitter.com/65L7A8aQTD – 11:23 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU Lakers had a sequence late down one where AD missed a FT… Russ missed the putback, AD missed putback, AND Bron missed third putback?
And they never led again?
Then Bron missed first of 3 FTs down 3 to end it? – 11:17 PM
Dave McMenamin @mcten Lakers lose a close one in GSW, 117-115, w/ LeBron missing the 1st of 3 FTs with 2.4 seconds left with a chance to tie if he hit them all. LeBron 26p on 9-of-27 15r 8a; Russ 10p on 7-of-13 7r 5a 1to; AD 16p on 5-of-13 7r 4a 3b; THT 17p on 5-of-9 7r; Reaves 13p on 5-of-5; Monk 12p – 11:14 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Warriors have now screwed up this exact late game situation up the past two times. Didn’t foul up three and gave up a Pacers game-tying 3. Tried to foul up three tonight, but Curry’s foul was too late, three LeBron free throws. Missed two, though. Warriors survive. – 11:12 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe Derrick Jones Jr. says his friends on opposing teams somehow always end up guarding DeMar DeRozan.
Since DeMar doesn’t talk trash, DJJ does it for him.
“I’m gonna let you know how bad of a night you’re gonna have guarding him.” – 11:08 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Final: PHX 132, ORL 105
Booker: 26-5-5, 10-24 FG
Ayton: 17 Pts, 10 Reb, 8-11 FG
Paul: 10 Pts, 15 Ast, 5 Reb
Craig: 14 Pts, 4 Ast, 6-8 FG
Holiday: 10 Pts, 4-5 FG
Suggs: 20-10-6 – 11:07 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter LAL have continued to score here, with an AD alley-oop, Reaves 2 FT’s, and AD 1of 2 FT’s, but Klay’s hit 3 straight 3’s, and GSW lead 115-114 with 1:05 left.
Lakers just missed a series of put-backs of AD’s 2nd FTA. – 11:05 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050 Fred VanVleet on the Thad Young-Dragic trade: “Great piece, great addition, especially when the other guy was sitting at home so it wasn’t like we were giving up much. That’s the situation we were in so it’s a +1 in my book. We’ll take that.” – 11:00 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet JaVale McGee immediately signaled to the bench to challenge that foul call on his contest on Jalen Suggs’ bench, which was met with Booker and Ayton doing the same. Monty concedes and will challenge it – 10:45 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang NEW: The Heat again dominated the third quarter, but then the Nets and Kyrie Irving made a fourth-quarter push.
Takeaways and details from the Heat’s fifth straight win miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia… – 10:41 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha Third quarter: Warriors 95, Lakers 94
LeBron James has 23 points and has become the NBA’s all-time leading regular season and postseason scorer. The Lakers have moved the ball well tonight, with 23 assists and just 5 turnovers. Russ has 17 points. AD and THT have 13 each. – 10:35 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Final: Nets fall to the Heat 115-111. The losing streak is 11. Brooklyn played well enough to battle back, but had a few issues down the stretch. Irving with 29, Thomas with 22, Sharpe with a double-double. Kings come to town on Monday. Enter Seth Curry and Andre Drummond. – 10:32 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe Curry is at 27 minutes with the fourth quarter to play. He’s +10 in a two-point game, so taking him off the floor is going to be tough in the fourth. But we know Kerr likes to keep him around 36. Will he stretch to 39 if need be? Will Steph win tonight? – 10:31 PM
David Hardisty @clutchfans That’s 11 straight losses for the Brooklyn Nets. Their upcoming schedule:
at NYK *
— All-Star Break —
at TOR *
* = without Kyrie Irving (if vaccine mandate still in place) – 10:30 PM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko DeMar DeRozan tonight:
✅ 38 PTS
✅ 6 REB
✅ 5 AST
✅ 12-24 FG
DeRozan has scored at least 35 points while shooting 50% from the field in each of his last five games, breaking a tie with Michael Jordan for the longest such streak in @Chicago Bulls history. pic.twitter.com/PsdN0QofwF – 10:30 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe It looked dicey for awhile, but the Bulls pull out the 106-101 win over Oklahoma City.
DeMar DeRozan becomes the first Bull since Michael Jordan in 1996 to score 35+ points in five straight games. – 10:28 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef Troy Brown Jr. is going to finish this game scoreless on 0-9 shooting, 0-5 from 3. He was largely bad
But his 10th rebound was all-important: An offensive board after a missed Ayo 3 that led to DeMar DeRozan free throws to put Bulls up 5 with 8 seconds left – 10:27 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin #Suns 67 #Magic 53 H.
PHX: Ayton 14 and 7. Crowder 11. Booker 10. Paul 10 assists, 7 pts. Team: 51.9% FG (6-of-15 on 3s) Paint pts: 40. Turnovers: 2 (Led to zero Magic pts)
ORL: Suggs 16. Anthony 10. Team: 45.2% FG (8-of-21 on 3s) Paint pts: 20. Turnovers: 8 (led to 14 PHX pts) – 10:12 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Watching Kyrie dissect the Heat’s defense by just never having the guy Bam is defending set the screen is hilarious
Lowry carving things up on the other end – 10:08 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Patty Mills, who never complains, is having an extended conversation with the officials after Nash called timeout. Thought he got pulled to the ground it appears. – 10:08 PM
Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic big three from Devin Booker on the Suns’ penultimate poss. of 1st half to stake Suns to a 67-53 halftime lead over Orlando. The Magic had been chipping into what had been a 21-point lead over the past few mins. I thought an eight-point deficit at half would be a good target – 10:03 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer End of the third quarter: Heat have opened this up and lead 91-76. Interested to see what Steve Nash does here. No point in playing Kyrie Irving if the deficit grows, but given this is his last game until the Bucks on Feb. 26 do you give him a little extra run? – 9:52 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 We may be able to pick out some similarities between the 1 seed in the West — Suns — and the 1 seed in the East – Heat
But a main one is the solidity of the back-up big spot
Dedmon and McGee just give such solid minutes for great teams – 9:51 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS At the half: Warriors 65, Lakers 62
-D springs massive leak in Q2 (LA 36 pts, 63.6% FG)
-Curry 17, Kuminga 16, Thompson 10
-15 assists, 5 turnovers
-Rebs: GSW 25, LA 19 – 9:47 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha Halftime: Warriors 65, Lakers 62
LeBron James has 18 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists — he’s one point away from becoming the NBA’s all-time leading scorer across the regular season and postseason combined. Russ and THT each have 10 points. AD has 9 points and 3 blocks. – 9:46 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis Brooklyn has coughed up 57.5% shooting to trail by six at the half. They’ll need to defend better, and get more out of Kyrie Irving (four points on 2-of-8 from the floor). #Nets #Heat – 9:14 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell KD doesn’t believe Harden owes him an explanation — and said he “wasn’t looking for one.”
He also said it was “hard to gauge” just how much of an impact Kyrie’s decision not to get vaccinated has had on the Nets.
espn.com/nba/story/_/id… – 9:10 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Halftime: Nets trail the Heat 64-58. Cam Thomas with a game-high 15 points on 7-for-11 shooting. He’s grown up lately. Irving with just four points. Bruce Brown playing well in his college town. Has 11 points and a 3. Just two turnovers, too. Nets can use some more 3s. – 9:08 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Lakers are just 4 for 10 at the FT line after Ariza missed a pair, the 3rd Laker (LeBron, AD) to miss both this quarter.
Warriors are 7 for 8 at the line, and lead 26-18. – 9:07 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin Figuring this out for home games.
See the black curtain.
Players are behind that.
Security pulled it back right before JaVale McGee’s “Hey MFs!”
Still hear woofs down the hall.
Talked with security. Worked out logistics to get footage Tuesday for #Suns vs. #ClipperNation. pic.twitter.com/1mqzj2Vmce – 9:05 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS Kuminga with the clever move: Transition drive toward rim, sees AD waiting, decides not to test the vet, goes with lefty (away from AD) layup
Warriors 19, Lakers 11, 5:22 Q1 – 8:59 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed The Nets are tied with the Heat, 28-26, entering the second quarter, but two days after trading James Harden to Philly, Kyrie Irving heads to the locker room after an awkward slip on a drive to the rim. – 8:39 PM
Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson The Nuggets come out strong and bring some fight on the 2nd night of a b2b.
Denver trails 57-56 against Toronto at the half.
Jokic dominated inside and got to the FT line. He’s up to 21 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists.
Jeff Green added 11 and Hyland has 8. – 8:39 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer End of the first quarter: Nets and Heat tied at 26. James Johnson with seven points. Brooklyn holding its own so far and getting to the basket fairly well. They could use some perimeter scoring, but slow starts for Cam Thomas and Patty Mills. – 8:37 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto Darius Bazley just blocked DeMar DeRozan’s jumper to end the first quarter. A frustrated DeRozan heaved the ball and was t’d up. Bazley continues to impress defensively. – 8:36 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe DeMar DeRozan chucks the ball skyward (and receives a technical) after being blocked at the buzzer of the first quarter.
The Bulls trail the Thunder 29-22, visibly struggling without LaVine and Green. – 8:35 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop DeMar DeRozan got a T at quarter buzzer because he threw the ball skyward in frustration.
The crazy part is it was just before horn so it could be argued it was an errant shot. – 8:35 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Kyrie just took a fall and appears to be grabbing his right quad. He pointed to the bench and asked for a sub. He’s headed back to the locker room — likely to get looked at. Still appears to be moving all right — but he’s in some discomfort. – 8:35 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill New for @YahooSports: Russell Westbrook’s words to LeBron and Anthony Davis hit like a brick—a bricked layup, or 3, or wayward jumper. But it seems the Lakers, and LeBron, have to live with the bed they made: yhoo.it/3uLU57V – 8:34 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Starters: Westbrook, Bradley, LeBron, Johnson and Davis.
Vogel has said that for certain opposing guards, like Steph Curry, he’d go to Bradley and bring Monk off the bench. – 8:03 PM
Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire To shake free from the defense of Julius Randle, Steph Curry showed off a crafty set of handles on Thursday against the Knicks. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/02/11/wat… – 8:00 PM
Jeff Eisenband @JeffEisenband Sam Ryder’s hole-in-one, TPC Scottsdale shaking, Sahith hanging in with Brooks and Xander, Scottie, Patty and Hideki making their moves.
This was an absolutely awesome golf day. And it’s set up for non-stop drama tomorrow. ⛳️🏟 @WMPhoenixOpen – 7:31 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin “They play hard.” #Suns coach Monty Williams about #Magic, saying they have young talent to start and come off the bench with veterans like Gary Harris and Terrence Ross. pic.twitter.com/aVTKR9HNzP – 7:29 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell Do you think Kyrie’s decision not to get vax had an impact on Harden wanting to leave?
KD “I can’t speculate on that, I wouldn’t know. There’s obviously going to be rumors about that. Kyrie has always been an easy scapegoat for everybody, especially for the media and the fans.” – 7:15 PM
Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire Before All-Star weekend in Cleveland, LeBron James selected Steph Curry with the No. 3 overall pick in the NBA All-Star draft. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/02/10/leb… – 6:07 PM
Nick DePaula @NickDePaula Stephen Curry gifted the Howard Golf Women’s & Men’s teams with the #BHM edition of his new Curry 9, along with an alternate BHM PE pair.
@HUBison_Golf 🤝 @Stephen Curry pic.twitter.com/csE0Mepflq – 4:57 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin Tobias Harris was moved to Philly at the deadline in 2019. He recalled his own trade in regards to building chemistry with James Harden in a short amount of time. #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/2022/02/12/tob… via @SixersWire – 1:51 PM
Jorge Sierra @hoopshype DeMar DeRozan is the fourth-best player in the NBA this season, per HoospHype’s Global Rating.
He just passed Stephen Curry in the ranking, which puts him as the No. 1 American player on the list this year.
hoopshype.com/lists/global-r… – 1:42 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Torrey Craig said it’s good to be back. Obviously it helps being on the No. 1 team in the NBA, but also being with a group of guys he likes being around.
Craig said Devin Booker, Chris Paul and Jae Crowder got him on a Group FaceTime call when they found out to welcome him back – 1:11 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson Torrey Craig said that once the news came down he was traded he got a group facetime call from Chris Paul, Devin Booker and Jae Crowder. As you can imagine, they were excited to have him back. – 1:09 PM
