Kevin Pelton @kpelton

Paolo Banchero, playing in Portland in the closest he’s going to get to a homecoming until the NBA returns to Seattle, is flying around in the opening minutes as the Magic lead 9-2. – 10:15 PM

Banchero dunks and points to the large Seattle contingent sitting behind the Magic bench. – 10:13 PM

Thunder opens the second half with a small lineup. Spoelstra matches the Thunder by subbing in Jamal Cain for Orlando Robinson, who was just called for his fourth foul. – 8:56 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat

No Dedmon and now Orlando Robinson third foul. So Heat move Jamal Cain (?) to center. – 8:33 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305

Aside from the antics, the Heat have clawed their way in good manner
Aggressive Butler getting to the line
Strus’ early rim attempts flowed into a good shooting night
Orlando Robinson really doing a great job around the edges – 8:25 PM

Portland Trail Blazers @trailblazers

Gary Payton II will play tonight against Orlando, according to Chauncey Billups. – 8:18 PM

Sean Highkin @highkin

Chauncey Billups says Gary Payton II is good to go tonight. – 8:17 PM

Casey Holdahl @CHold

High usage for Max Strus here early
Haywood Highsmith with a bit of the dirty work
Orlando Robinson bit of a target in middle of floor
He’s so fundamentally sound – 7:35 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat

Have to say that Orlando Robinson vs. Eugene Omoruyi is what initially drew me to this game. – 7:35 PM

GabeVincent

(No Bam Adebayo, Tyler Herro, Kyle Lowry, Caleb Martin, Yurtseven, D. Robinson, Jovic.) – 7:00 PM

Kerry Eggers @kerryeggers

Even after losing 7 of 9, @Portland Trail Blazers are still in a virtual tie for 8th in the West, a half-game out of 6th. Ten of their next 11 games are at home, starting tonight vs. Orlando. Here’s my guess: they win 7 of the 10 home games coming up & climb a bit in the standings

If Tre Jones must face Ja Morant tomorrow, it will be a reprieve from Monday when he squared off vs. an amalgam of MJ, Magic and Zeus: His older brother di lui Tyus.

RJ Barrett has been upgraded to questionable for tomorrow’s game against the Pacers. Knicks need to get better at MSG. They’re one of only six NBA teams with a losing record at home, joining bottom dwellers Houston, San Antonio, Detroit, Charlotte and Orlando. – 4:31 PM
