Luke Walton updates on Lakers injuries included full practices for Lonzo Ball and Andrew Bogut, while Julius Randle remained limited (intercostal strain). Walton isn't committing to playing Randle until he shows he's healthy before Thursday, and said Larry Nance could start. Randle feels he'll be ready Thursday, but was indifferent on whether he'd be fine with coming off the bench.

In a conference call to promote TNT's NBA coverage, Shaquille O'Neal said Knicks players failed to buy into ex-Knicks president Phil Jackson's triangle system of offense: "I think Phil went wrong in believing the mindset of these players would believe in him and his system for the triangle,'' said O'Neal, who won three titles with Jackson in Los Angeles. "I've said many times, the triangle worked. Guys have always tried to debate it as: Of course it worked with Shaq and Kobe and Mike and Scottie but Carmelo [Anthony] got [Kristaps] Porzingis and some role players. I think if they would've bought into the system, it would've been much different. But they never bought into the system." O'Neal also said Jackson's decision to trade for Derrick Rose and sign Joakim Noah last year were risks worth taking. The Knicks finished the season with 31 wins.

Dwyane Wade reflected on LeBron James' first game back to Cleveland as an opponent in 2010: “That night? That was a movie. But what stands out to me most is that LeBron had 38 at the end of the third. To watch him, obviously I was sitting next to him in the locker and it was the one game where I just kept looking over at him because I knew what was out there, what was waiting for him and just to see how he was acting and how he was responding and to see him come out there with that focus, that excitement to play that game and to perform like that, to have 38 at the end of the third and sit out the whole fourth was one of the best performances I've watched him put on. Not the best, one of the best.”

Marcus Smart on not reaching an extension with Celtics: "‬We thought it was close from the fact that we didn't ask for much. … But they just weren't budging."

This won't be the last time somebody is in this situation and just play it out and see how the year goes."
