Warriors with some timeout worthy defense to start, Steve Kerr calls timeout with his team trailing the Kings 9-14

De'Aaron Fox (15 points, 2 boards, 1 assist, 1 steal) winning the head-to-head match-up v Lonzo Ball (6 points, 2 boards, 3 assists, 1 block) at the half. Kentucky up 36-33.

Not sure why Devin Booker scoring 70 points is somehow less meaningful because his team lost. Seems like it might not be his fault.

Rockets earn win No. 50. Harden with 38 points and tied a career-high with 17 assists. Rockets 117, Pelicans 107.

Pelicans fall 117-107 in Houston despite 60 points combined from DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis. The Pelicans are now 5 games back of the Denver Nuggets for 8th in the West with 10 to play.

Lonzo Ball (ranked No. 2 in our Top 100) & De'Aaron Fox (No. 6) both living up to hype early in this game ... what a loaded PG draft this year

Scott Van Pelt @notthefakeSVP

I don't know if I'm the only one watching this but Devin Booker has gone totally insane in Boston. He has 64. Just hit a 3 that didn't count

Shaquille O'Neal says he isn't interested in working for the Lakers because he's happy with his current role with the Kings, but he believes new Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka will do a good job.
