Oleh Kosel @Oleh Kosel

Pelicans bank in a couple of 3s to close out the first half, trimming a 26-point deficit to 19 at halftime against the Heat.
FWIW, their worst deficit at home had previously been 10 points to both the Celtics and Jazz. – 9:09 PM

Austin Krell @NBAKrell

When Sixers blitz ball screen, low man often won’t tag the roller, who gets a dunk. Or, the box rotation is missed and baseline cutter backdoors for a dunk.
Last night, Harden made low man rotation, tagged Zubac, Maxey dropped to box, cut off backdoor. Junked possession for LAC. – 9:04 PM

In regards to John Wall telling Green and Porter that they wouldn’t be able to get away with the things they get away with in Houston anywhere else, I asked Silas if he’s handled them different than other young player he’s coached and how does he hold accountable players: – 6:53 PM

Kelly Iko @KellyIko

Stephen Silas on John Wall’s recent comments:
β€œWhat John Wall went through here and the situation (he was in) was unprecedented. There was no easy way for it to go down. We tried to make it as good as possible for him as an organization…There’s frustration and I get it.” – 6:23 PM
