Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham

Is it me or is the mic on the rim the #Cavs are shooting on right now in Memphis pretty loud? – 8:29 PM

John Schuhman @john schuhmann

Um… Did the Grizzlies just run an ATO for a Steven Adams pick-and-roll? – 8:24 PM

Chris Herrington @Chris Herrington

It’s disorienting to watch the Grizzlies without a size advantage up front. – 8:22 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC

The defense is going to need to play at a higher level for the Grizzlies to win tonight. The Cavs aren’t the type of team you want to be stuck playing in the halfcourt against. Memphis has to create misses for easy scoring chances. Not too many good lucks so far. – 8:22 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

The Steven Adams 3-point play is the free throw AND THEN the basket. – 8:21 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

The Steven Adams 3-point okay is the free throw AND THEN the basket. – 8:20 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC

The Grizzlies get there first made field goal right under the 8-minute mark courtesy of Steven Adams. – 8:20 PM

Chris Herrington @Chris Herrington

13-3 Cavs. Best 3-point shooter to the bench early and Cavs defense shutting down the paint. Grizzlies are 0-5 from the floor. If they’re able to tie the franchise-record winning streak, it will now be in a double-digit comeback. – 8:17 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC

Grizzlies time out. Memphis is down 13-3 without a made field goal. Cleveland is shooting 6-8. – 8:17 PM

Donovan Mitchell @spidadmitchell

GREAT START!!!! – 8:17 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC

Referee Curtis Blair told JB Bickerstaff to stop yelling so early in the game after he called a defensive foul on Evan Mobley that Bickerstaff wasn’t pleased with.
Bickerstaff: β€œEvery time I see you I want to yell at you.”

Desmond Bane with two fouls in the first two minutes, and he’s out. – 8:13 PM

Taylor Jenkins said the Grizzlies will have their opportunities on 3-pointers tonight. Just have to knock them down to open up the inside. The Cavs have the No. 2 rated defense – 6:20 PM

Tom Petrini @Real Tom Petrini

Spurs rookie Jeremy Sochan is working on his game, but he already has an elite skill: irritating his opponents.
Coach Pop says he’s got some nasty, and Markieff Morris, Steven Adams and Luka Doncic can all confirm.
Here’s how he pisses people off:… – 4:06 PM

Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs JB Bickerstaff said Kevin Love isn’t the kind of guy to make excuses. But Love told me his thumb still does n’t feel right and actually forced him to alter his shooting mechanics. The numbers reflect that… – 4:06 PM
