    Book should go for 81 in tribute to Kobe.

    My understanding is that Book and Kobe were very close (with Kobe being very much an inspiration and NBA father figure to Book). I expect Book either to go off (perhaps not for 81, but for something like 50) or to play like he is in a trance. Given the shock of it all, either is understandable.

    While today's games will count in the standings, they will be entirely meaningless in terms of team evaluation given the gravity of the circumstances.

    League pass sucks sometimes. Why don’t they just show the stinking feed instead of cutting away to show the same commercials over and over again?

    Reminder that the game is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. It should start shortly.

    If you’re worried about losing Carter you’ve got a bad case of “ Suns Syndrome. “

    I hope he starts with 2-pointers -- mid-range shots and drives -- to get going, instead of heaving from 23 feet.

    Edit: And Booker scores from down low. Next play, Booker free throws. Well, after Saric misses a long range bomb.

    Booker gets the Suns on the scoreboard.

    Game tied 2-2.
