I dunno how Vogel has coached this Pacers team to this many wins. There's just no scoring.

Brooklyn Nets @BrooklynNets

#Nets' 18-point lead represents 2nd-most lopsided quarter of the season (Nets outscored the Lakers by 20 in the 3rd quarter on 2/20)

Everything is falling at the Palace

The Pistons are shooting 61% midway through the second quarter which would be great on most nights, but the Hawks are connecting on 66% of their attempts. Detroit does hold a slim lead over the East's top team though.

Seeing Heat-Spurs always reminds me of Riley saying Pop was lone NBA coach/exec to personally call & offer congrats in '10 on landing LeBron

Brooklyn rebounds from slow start

The Nets fell behind 7-0, but Brook Lopez (10 points) and Brooklyn quickly erased that deficit with a 13-1 run and hold a lead against Indiana late in the first quarter. Follow live


Pistons scorching hot vs. Hawks

Detroit is spreading the scoring around early as it has four players with at least five points. The Pistons have hit 10 of their first 11 shots, and even though the Hawks are shooting 70%, they trail by double digits. Follow live


Indiana Pacers @Pacers

Injury update: C.J. Miles has a right ankle sprain and is questionable to return to tonight's game.

Kevin Pelton @kpelton

Prediction: Andre Drummond improves dramatically as a post scorer next season. Already has made strides since November.

Ethan Strauss @SherwoodStrauss

Kerr believes in managing minutes because science tells us it's a good idea. An oddly unpopular position in that coaching fraternity

Nets, Pacers race for 8th place in BK

The Nets and Pacers are separated by a 1/2 game in 9th and 10th place in the East, respectively, entering tonight's game at Barclays Center. Brooklyn boasts a 7-3 record in their last 10 games, while Indiana is just 3-7.

What will tonight bring?

The first NBA game of the night is about to tip off. Let's hope we get something as cool as the Andrew Wiggins-Rudy Gobert back-and-forth last night. It was awesome
