Thought Sabonis and Grant did a nice job on AD after Adams injury. OKC now plus-16 in 52 mins w/ Russ/Dipo/Roberson/Grant foursome on floor

LOL at Brian Davis (OKC play-by-play) on Jerami Grant blocking Langston Galloway at the rim: "HE PUT HIM IN GRANT'S TOMB!"

OKC big man Enes Kanter on the performance of Anthony Davis, who had 37 points in a loss to the Thunder: "He can't beat us just by himself. That's what a really special player does. Look at Russell [Westbrook], getting his stats, but making everybody else better. With them, he's done a good job, I don't want to say nothing bad about him. He's a good player. That's it."

Paul George hit a corner 3 and that might be it. 107-100, Pacers with a minute left

Pacers beat Clippers by 21 on 11/27. Up by 16 over LAC now. Clippers' 4 other losses by a total of 22 points.

J.A. Adande @jadande

Pacers up by 20, swaggering around Staples Center. Clippers have 17 turnovers, Chris Paul only 1 field goal.

J.A. Adande @jadande

Clippers are shooting 60% from the line tonight...and that's without a single free throw attempt by DeAndre Jordan. Pacers up 79-69

Joakim Noah on DeMarcus Cousins after the Knicks' win over Sacramento, which featured a few flare ups between the two big men: "Boogie's tough. No question. He acts like he's your friend one minute, then one minute he gets a tech. He's an emotional roller-coaster." Noah delivered that last line with a laugh and added that Cousins is one of the best centers in the NBA.

Bradley is Boston's top rebounder at 7.9 RPG, which puts him on pace to tie the single-season record for players listed 6-foot-2 or shorter.
