Another double digit deficit for the Celtics in the 4th quarter. It's the 4th time in the last 6 games. They've been able to win the last 5. (15 straight overall) Can they squeak another win out here in Dallas to extend the streak?

Out of a TO Pelicans end up w/ Rondo taking a three with ten seconds left on shot clock. Don't see that much.

The Mavericks are trying to ruin the Celtics streak here in Dallas. After 3rd quarter Mavericks are up 77-69. Biggest difference here is Boston's 13 turnovers which have translated into Mavs having 14 more shot attempts than Boston. Despite Kyrie Irving's 30 points on 10-13 shooting, Celtics still shooting 42% as a team. C's need yet another 4th quarter rally to keep their win streak alive.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said the energy of his starters tonight was "awful." Went on to say: "We gotta get more guys to play better, and part of that's on me."

Knicks (9-7) beat a Clippers team that has now lost nine in a row. What a mess in Los Angeles. Six players in double figures for the Knicks, led by Kristaps Porzingis (25 points). Doug McDermott had 16 points off the bench, which included some key threes.

The Mavericks close the gap on the Celtics at the half, but still have no answer for Kyrie Irving. He's got 25 points on 9-10 shooting, including 4-4 from 3. Irving missed his only shot at the halftime buzzer. Boston up 53-49, as they look for their 16th straight win.

The Knicks are up by 20 and brief but loud ‘We want Beasley' chants have broken out in the upper bowl at MSG.

Reiterating the Jarrett Jack point: the Clippers cut the Knicks' 17-point lead to two in the third when Jack picked off an errant pass, pushed the ball and found Doug McDermott for a 3-point field goal. A few minutes later, he drove and found McDermott again for another 3 to increase New York's lead to 12.

End of 1 in Dallas. Celtics up 33-22. Kyrie Irving (and his mask) getting whatever they want on offense with 17 points on 6-6 shooting in 1st quarter. Jaylen Brown with 12 points.

The Knicks would be in a bad place tonight - and this season, probably - without Jarrett Jack. The veteran PG has 7 points and 3 assists against the Clippers; he just spearheaded a 10-0 New York run in the second quarter.

The Lakers are keeping tabs on free agent Mindaugas Kuzminskas. According to sources with knowledge of the team's thinking, the Lakers, in need of perimeter shooting, are doing their due diligence and met with the forward recently while they evaluate their wing depth.

The Clippers have opened the second quarter hitting 5 of their first 6 shots, including both 3-point attempts. Jeff Hornacek doesn't seem pleased, calls a timeout just three minutes into the quarter.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The first 12 minutes of Knicks-Clippers featured 13 turnovers, 11 fouls and 19 misses shots. Not the most entertaining quarter of basketball. It will be interesting to see how Blake Griffin and Kristaps Porzingis adjust to one another over the course of the game.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Tough test for Kristaps Porzingis tonight: he's matched up against Blake Griffin and trying to shake off a shooting slump. He's made one of his first four (a post-up over Griffin) and has two early turnovers.

Kyrie Irving going through warmups here in Dallas. Celtics going for 16 in a row tonight.

LeBron James has 16 points on 6-for-7 shooting early on. The Cavs lead 25-18 with 3:48 to go in the first quarter in Detroit. He has his 3-ball working, going 3-for-3 from deep so far.
