If I see one more gambling ad or Fan Duel sponsored post come in my @Twitter timeline, I’m logging off. New York is flooding me with gambling posts and I don’t even get down like that. It’s nauseating. #stopit9:23 PM

It’s NFL Draft deadline day. Utah’s business here essentially finished when Tavion Thomas said he’d be back
UNDERCLASSMEN LEAVING: Devin Lloyd, T.J. Pledger, Britain Covey, Nick Ford, Cole Fotheringham, Nephi Sewell, Mika Tafua.
That’s substantial, but it could have been worse. – 7:30 PM

Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
What’s the most shocking record among these four?
Grizz: 30-15
Cavs: 27-18
Lakers: 21-22
Hawks: 17-25 – 7:20 PM

Utah Jazz @utahjazz
How did Rudy feel after coming back to play after missing the previous five?

Craig Smith is not a guy to get on the officials publicly. Not at all.
He mentioned a couple of shaky calls that went against Utah. Specifically, the DJJ leg kick on the 3-point attempt, and an offensive foul call on a drag screen
IMO, officiating was not bad, but inconsistent – 6:42 PM

Battle for the rim tonight
Lakers take the 2nd most shots at the rim, the Jazz allow the 4th fewest
Lakers are 30th at guarding pick and roll man and allow 2nd most shots at the rim. Jazz are 3rd best team shooting at rim, but don’t get there much. Will they tonight? – 6:23 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Prior to today, the Clippers were 2-104 in franchise history when allowing at least 133 points, including playoffs.
Both wins (2009 at New York, 2019 vs Jazz) were in overtime. – 6:21 PM

Darius Garland today:
✅ 22 PTS
✅ 6 REB

Garland is just the third player in @Cleveland Cavaliers history to record at least 45p/30a over a two-game span, joining LeBron James and Andre Miller. pic.twitter.com/lgx6OPQFAX6:10 PM

Jalen Graham with a floater from about 8 feet wins it for Arizona State, 64-62.
That’s a tough loss to stomach for Utah. – 6:06 PM

Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
That Utah possession out of the timeout went absolutely nowhere, then David Jenkins saved it. Tough pull-up jumper there to tie it. – 6:04 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Track meet in LA today. Clippers win 139-133 after leading the entire game. It’s the most points the Pacers allowed all season.
Nicolas Batum scored a career-high 32pts — all in the second half. LeVert had 26, Duarte had 24. Bitadze scored CH 17p, 8r.
Up next: at LAL on Wed. – 6:00 PM

David Locke @DLocke09
Jazz need to make sure Malik Monk becomes an off the bounce shooter rather than a catch and shoot player
29 of his last 47 on catch and shoot 3s 62%
4 of his last 20 off the bounce 3s 20% – 6:00 PM

Both Gach is starting to be aggressive and get downhill, which is when he’s at his best. Utah back up one after he hits a couple of freebies. – 5:44 PM

That’s a tough third foul on Dusan Mahorcic. Craig Smith rolling with him and the three fouls for now with Utah now down six. – 5:24 PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
In his last outing against the Bucks, Trae Young tallied 42 PTS (16-26 FG, 8-13 3FG), 10 AST & 8 REB. Young became only the fourth player in NBA history to notch 40+ PTS, 10+ AST, 8+ REB and 8+ 3FGM in a single game, joining James Harden (3x), Paul George and Russell Westbrook. – 5:19 PM

David Guthrie in his 17th year, has called 70 playoff games and 6 NBA Finals.

Rare to get 3 playoff refs – 4:47 PM
