Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis Sports+: #Nets wrestling with how much is too much for Kevin Durant and James Harden nypost.com/2021/11/20/kev… via @nypost8:41 AM

CBS NBA @CBSSportsNBA Boston TV station trolls Lakers, Russell Westbrook after Dennis Schroder’s strong performance in Celtics win
cbssports.com/nba/news/bosto…2:15 AM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin “As long as he can shoot he’s fine.”
“Not really.”
Chris Paul and Devin Booker, who addressed hitting his elbow/funny bone in Wednesday’s win over #Mavs. #Suns pic.twitter.com/JJUhHiu8NH1:40 AM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin The question was for Devin Booker about Mikal Bridges, but Chris Paul had something to say.
“I don’t care if Mikal don’t play another game this season, he better be on that all-defensive team this year. Every night. Every night.” pic.twitter.com/WdjdNFbxnt1:36 AM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis James Harden leads Kevin Durant-less #Nets past #Magic nypost.com/2021/11/19/jam… via @nypostsports1:18 AM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin Mikal Bridges talks about why he took just seven shots in going 7-of-7 tonight.
“I don’t have the ball.”
Bridges then looked at the stat sheet and pointed out how Devin Booker took 20 FGAs while Chris Paul took 14 FGAs. #Suns pic.twitter.com/luIuR5Kq0w1:10 AM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson Devin Booker was asked by @Gerald Bourguet about Mikal Bridges’ defensive impact and Chris Paul stepped in and said even if Bridges doesn’t play another game this season he better make the All-Defense team. – 1:03 AM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Monty Williams said the coaching staff has been getting on Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson and Jae Crowder in particular about turning down shots – 12:40 AM

StatMuse @statmuse Chris Paul is the only player this season to average:
10+ PPG
10+ APG
2+ SPG
A couple grays in the beard but his game doesn’t age. pic.twitter.com/Nk1neCT6oN12:38 AM

StatMuse @statmuse Chris Paul moves to third all time in games with 10+ assists.
863 — John Stockton
569 — Jason Kidd
521 — Chris Paul pic.twitter.com/sFZ6acLyUb12:11 AM

Dave McMenamin @mcten This is an actual television chyron that ran tonight in Boston after former Lakers guard Dennis Schroder had 21 pts, 6 reb and 6 ast and was a +12 in a win while Russell Westbrook had 12 pts, 6 ast, 4 reb and was -12 in a loss pic.twitter.com/4lIzF3J97212:09 AM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin Paul jumper.
Crowder 3.
Crowd goes crazy.
With Booker on the bench, #Suns have awakened.
Now on 15-2 run in taking 95-86 lead with 7:27 left in the game.
Booker 5-of-16 (1-of-5 on 3s). – 12:09 AM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Some of the turnovers have been less than stellar but I hope nobody takes for granted what Chris Paul is still doing at age 36. The man is timeless – 12:07 AM

James Ham @James_HamNBA Buddy Hield hitting shots now. Not through 3 quarters, but now. – 11:58 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Woo boy. Chris Paul step-back 3, Deandre Ayton swat at the rim, Devin Booker alley-oop to Mikal Bridges…if he had finished that, the roof might have gone off the building – 11:00 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne “Whenever he’s able to get into the paint, great things happen for us.”
⁃Patty Mills on James Harden. – 10:56 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis James Harden after going 19-of-20 from the line, the fourth time in his last five game he’s taken at least 11 free throws: “I don’t want to talk about officiating. I’m just trying to attack the basket.” Now that he’s finally getting calls, wise not to rock the boat. #Nets #NBA10:45 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne James Johnson praises James Harden for being a “maestro” on the court. – 10:43 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne “It shows a lot of character in his leadership.”
⁃James Johnson on James Harden trying to find LaMarcus Aldridge in the fourth quarter. – 10:41 PM

Bill Oram @billoram Russell Westbrook with a HELL of a look tonight. pic.twitter.com/LoXiuT4o7510:33 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon Russell Westbrook: I think the reality of it is that everybody on the outside has really high expectations of our team, as they should. But the reality of our team is that we haven’t really played together. – 10:31 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson When looking at certain pockets of the rotation, I think the Payne-Booker-Shamet-Johnson minutes are going to be really great for this team but they just haven’t gotten there yet. In 18 minutes it’s a +1. The CP3 + reserves and Booker + reserves numbers will both get better. – 10:31 PM

Jovan Buha @jovanbuha Russell Westbrook on what he wants to accomplish on the rest of the road trip: “Win.” – 10:30 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson This pace is gonna be such a plus for the Suns in the playoffs if it holds up. CP3 is already getting downhill into ball screens with 20 seconds left on the shot clock. – 10:28 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS I got so caught up with the Lakers that I missed this… James Harden took 80% of Brooklyn’s free throws tonight? Has that ever happened? – 10:22 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne James Harden admits that he could’ve performed better, but he missed some easy shots that he usually makes. – 10:21 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne James Harden says,
“Guys stepped up tonight — It was a collective effort, we knew we had guys out so we knew guys had to step up and we had a few of them.” – 10:20 PM

StatMuse @statmuse Anthony Davis is shooting 17.6% from three this season.
Dwight Howard has as many threes as AD in their last 10 games (3). pic.twitter.com/sp0kNFL5or10:19 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne “He works his butt off every single day.”
⁃James Harden on Jevon Carter. – 10:19 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer James Harden said he was intentionally looking for LaMarcus Aldridge down the stretch when his own shot wasn’t falling. Said Aldridge “took us home.” – 10:18 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne “Our defensive communication picked up. Our intensity and our spirit all picked up.”
⁃James Harden on what changed after trailing by 19 points against the Magic. – 10:18 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM James Harden has 30 or more points in 4 of the 7 games he’s played without both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. He has scored 25 points in all 7 of those games per @ESPNStatsInfo. – 10:18 PM
