Mark Daigneault on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Tre Mann playing off each other “I thought they were both really good.” Mention’s they had a hard time keeping Shai out the paint, he did a good job attacking. Mentions “he made the right plays” – 9:57 PM Royce Young @royceyoung
Thunder win a wild one in overtime. SGA with 36-8-5 (13-24 shooting), Tre Mann with 22 and some quality balance from Poku (13 points), Maledon (14), Bazley (14 and 10 rebounds). – 9:39 PM Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson

Westbrook, Reaves, LeBron, Ariza and Howard – 9:31 PM Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
I’ll be paying extra attention to how Clippers start tonight’s road game against the Lakers.
Clippers have won each of last 5 meetings, and won first quarter in all of them. The last time Clippers led after the first quarter vs Lakers and lost was Christmas 2016. – 9:25 PM Royce Young @royceyoung
With Indiana’s defense shading way over to basically double-team SGA the moment he crossed halfcourt, Tre Mann has made the Pacers pay with a flurry of brilliant drives and floaters. Really impressive. – 9:16 PM Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Mavs have started 7 of 7 from the field (including a Dwight Powell 3-pointer, so you know it’s legit) and are on track to never miss another basket again. – 9:14 PM Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Answering @Dave McMenamin question about possibly holding back some of playbook with consideration of possible Play-In matchup with Lakers, Ty Lue says “We’re fighting for our lives” … playoffs are basically here for these teams. – 8:40 PM Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Ty Lue on Natalie Nakase’s new gig with the Las Vegas Aces: “The Aces did a great job” hiring her because she’s such a coaching talent. Credits her for much of Terance Mann’s development. (Mann’s mom, of course, was an assistant in the WNBA with the Atlanta Dream.) – 8:38 PM Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
In regard to Paul George’s recovery, Ty Lue repeats his familiar refrain: “Hope is stronger than fear.”
And tonight’s refrain: “The most important thing is he’s feeling better.” – 8:34 PM Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Clippers coach Ty Lue said Paul George is “feeling better” after his MRI result but that he will “need more time.” Asked if PG could still return this season, Lue said he’s not sure. – 8:33 PM Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Ty Lue said Paul George is “feeling better” and “making progress.” But Lue said PG “needs more time.” Timetable unclear. Will PG return this season? Lue: “I’m not sure.” – 8:33 PM Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Carmelo Anthony injured hamstring 3 weeks ago at LA, but will not be on a minute restriction tonight coming out of the All-Star break. – 8:27 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
No restrictions on Carmelo Anthony’s minutes tonight in his first game back after missing five ahead of the break. Vogel did say they may try to limit the number of minutes he plays consecutively within one stretch. – 8:25 PM Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Lakers coach Frank Vogel said Carmelo Anthony won’t have a minutes restriction, but will handle his workload responsibly – 8:25 PM Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Frank Vogel pre-Clippers: Says Carmelo Anthony isn’t on a minutes limit, but “we’ll try not to blow out his minutes” and “keep him in shorter runs.” – 8:24 PM Alykhan Bijani @Rockets_Insider
James Harden will be good in the Sixers offense because Doc is already utilizing him out of 21 series, which is where Harden exceeds with a Big that’s an offensive threat. Doc ran 21 series a ton with the Clippers. – 8:24 PM Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
The Thunder’s 40 points in the second quarter marked a season high. Previous high was 37 on Oct. 27 against the Lakers. – 8:23 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Regarding LeBron’s defensive responsibilities when playing mostly as a center (in AD’s absence), Frank Vogel said they aren’t necessarily harder, but just different. LeBron is able to function in either role, which isn’t something many players can do. – 8:22 PM Fred Katz @FredKatz
If Rose is back in one week, it means he misses tonight vs MIA, vs. PHI and @ PHI. If he’s back in two weeks, he will also miss @ PHX, @ LAC, @ SAC, and @ DAL.
That’s 3-7 games. Could be only 15-16 games remaining in the season when he returns. – 8:03 PM Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Tre Mann is 3-3 from 3 to start the game, including one from 30 feet.
Mann’s scoring was one of the best in the 2021 rookie class. The only worries about his offense were his athleticism and playmaking. And he’s had some of the best dunks and passes from any rookie this season. – 7:34 PM Dan Favale @danfavale
rich paul having to meet with the lakers in february to assure them lebron won’t look to leave or get pelinka fired for doing what lebron and ad wanted is a perfect encapsulation of this lakers season – 7:25 PM Kane Pitman @KanePitman
I’ve (unfairly) been resistant to DeMar DeRozan being an MVP candidate but it’s getting impossible to ignore. In my opinion, if Steph or LeBron were unleashing offensively like this and in first they would be the clear favourite. Factor in key Bulls injuries. Just a nuts season. – 7:15 PM Eddie Sefko @ESefko
The Mavericks announced today they have signed forward Moses Wright to a two-way contract. Wright (6-8, 226) went undrafted in 2021 and signed with the Agua Caliente Clippers of the G League. Wright has averaged 17.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.9 blocks in 17 games. – 7:12 PM Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
ESPN Sources: @Klutch Sports CEO Rich Paul met with Jeanie Buss and Rob Pelinka on Tuesday, insisting there’s no movement to seek changes in management and LeBron James’ primary objective is remaining a Laker and restoring team to championship contention. es.pn/36wuW6T – 7:08 PM Dallas Mavericks PR @MavsPR
