Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS Bradley Beal returned from bereavement and made five threes, but the Wizards couldn’t get their offense going in a winning streak-ending loss to the Hornets. ift.tt/3CytNGw10:03 AM

Christian Clark @cclark_13 There is no more depressing Pelicans statistic from the past few years than this: Lonzo Ball, Jrue Holiday, Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson played 17 non-bubble games together. They outscored opponents by 130 points in 259 minutes. – 10:01 AM

Michael Lee @MrMichaelLee Draymond Green on the 3-year partnership of Kevin Durant & Stephen Curry: “Everybody criticized it. Everybody criticized Kevin. Everybody criticized us. They didn’t appreciate it. But people usually don’t appreciate greatness until they no longer have it.” washingtonpost.com/sports/2021/11…10:00 AM

Jamal Collier @JamalCollier Their title defense is off to a slow start, but the Bucks are 3-0 when Giannis, Khris and Jrue are all in the lineup together espn.com/nba/story/_/id…9:24 AM

It’s the second time Antetokounmpo has scored 45 or more points while shooting at least 75% from the field.
The only other active player with more than one such games is Carmelo Anthony (2). pic.twitter.com/4TneZs8nSV9:16 AM

Justin Kubatko @jkubatko Kevin Durant appeared in his 900th career NBA game last night.

✅ Jerry West pic.twitter.com/2eXExqxCM99:01 AM

David ‘Dubi’ Pick @IAmDPick Tyrus McGee continues to be a dominant force in the @BasketballCL. 12 points on 5-6 FG, 3 dimes and +12 over 24 minutes for @SanPabloBurgos. pic.twitter.com/sR3zA2PypD3:28 AM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin Jae Crowder always feels #Suns have better team
“It’s just all about who is going to play better that night.”
#Suns have played well enough to win 10 in a row to mark not only the longest current win streak in #NBA but longest under Monty Williams, playoffs or regular season pic.twitter.com/KtUxy1bUQN1:12 AM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson I asked Jae Crowder about how swiftly the Suns broke down the Mavs’ zone look late and he said that was something they went over in shootaround after Dallas showed it in another game. He’s mentioned a few times the transition from shootaround prep to the game being on point. – 1:06 AM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Jae Crowder said he feels like every time the Suns take the court, they have the better team, but it’s a matter of whether they play like it on that given night – 1:02 AM

Sean Highkin @highkin Zach LaVine, asked if he was surprised he was that open at the end of the game: “Nah. I was surprised I missed.” – 12:46 AM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop Zach LaVine, via Zoom from Portland, on if he was surprised he was that open for potential tying 3: “I was surprised I missed. It sucks.” – 12:46 AM

Casey Holdahl @CHold Another Lavine three is off, Blazers win after being down by as many as 20. – 12:26 AM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop Trail Blazers 112, Bulls 107
Trail Blazers rally from 20-point, second-half deficit
LaVine 30 pts; 7-12 from 3 but missed wide-open look to tie in closing seconds
Caruso 12-10-9
Lillard 22 pts, 10 assts – 12:26 AM

Danny Leroux @DannyLeroux Bold strategy to let LaVine be too open – 12:25 AM

Adam Mares @Adam_Mares Can’t believe how wide open LaVine was. – 12:24 AM

Casey Holdahl @CHold Lavine WIDE open for three by at least five feet, but it’s off line. Little gets the rebound, is fouled and now he’ll got to the line to shoot two. – 12:24 AM

Sean Highkin @highkin LaVine had a WIDE open look at a three to tie it and missed. – 12:23 AM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop Season-high 7 3s for LaVine. – 12:17 AM

Chris Herring @Herring_NBA Dude, some of these shots LaVine is taking—and then making… – 12:17 AM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Low-key terrific hedge and contest from Jae Crowder on that play. Bothered THJ just enough on the shot to force a miss. Then an Ayton dunk a few possessions later. Suns up 4 with 1:27 to go – 12:13 AM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop This is 3rd straight game Zach LaVine has made 6 3-pointers. – 12:10 AM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin Monty held up the 3 sign for a while to suggest Bridges hit a 3.
Was credited for just a two.
#Suns up two after Crowder 3, but Williams is thinking they should be up 3. #Mavs12:10 AM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet Jae Crowder in for Cam Johnson after the timeout. Kinda surprised Monty didn’t stick with Cam for at least a bit longer with how he injected some life into this 4th quarter – 12:08 AM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop LaVine sinks a 3 and then draws a T for making gesture at official. – 12:07 AM
