What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Royce Young @royceyoung

It’s still pretty funny when Jalen Williams and Jaylin Williams are announced in back-to-back starting lineups. One night the whole team should just be introduced as Jalen (Jaylin) Williams. – 8:09 PM

Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto

Aaron Wiggins is starting for the Thunder. You know what that means. – 7:59 PM

Oklahoma City Thunder @okcthunder

Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor

Wine and Gold Talk Podcast with @H_Grove: Why are #Cavs better than last year despite the same record thru 50 games? How much of an All-Star chance does Darius Garland have? Why is JB Bickerstaff the right coach? And the best way to view this team.

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles

Jaylin Williams just challenged Josh Giddey to dunk after Giddey finished warm ups β€œtwo hands two foot?!” Grant Gibbs had the same reaction I did in my head β€œoooo”. Josh did the dunk and walked off. Jaylin said if Giddey pulls that out, he needs to hang on the rim next time. – 6:32 PM

Clemente Almanza @CALmanza1007

Mark Daigneault on Ousmane Dieng: β€œHe was on such a good track prior to getting hurt… Clearly, he’s shown what he’s capable of. I thought he did great work (with his rehab of him).” – 6:30 PM

Clemente Almanza @CALmanza1007

When asked about Lu Dort’s absence from tonight’s game, Mark Daigneault praised his value to the team:
β€œIf Lu missing wasn’t a void, we wouldn’t play him 30+ minutes.” – 6:28 PM

Oklahoma City Thunder @okcthunder

As the Thunder prepares to host the Cavaliers, some of the areas of focus lie on the defensive end including a heavy emphasis on boxing out and not allowing second chance points.

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps

James Dolan, on WFAN, if the β€œmeddlesome” version of James Dolan would have forced his front office to make a trade for Donovan Mitchell? β€œNot in the last 10 years.”
Dolan says his views have changed, and that he has to leave the decision making to the decision makers he’s hired – 3:26 PM

#Cavs Donovan Mitchell (groin) is listed as doubtful for tonight’s game in OKC.
Kevin Love (back spasms) and Ricky Rubio (injury management) are out. – 2:33 PM

#Cavs list Donovan Mitchell (groin) as doubtful to play tonight in Oklahoma City.
Ricky Rubio (injury management) and Kevin Love (back) are out. – 2:30 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham

After tonight the #Cavs will have just one more game outside the Eastern Time Zone the rest of the season (Feb. 10 in New Orleans). Pretty significant for them that the only time they’re west of Cleveland after the All-Star break is for two games in Atlanta. – 2:15 PM
