What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Kelly Iko @KellyIkoNBA
The more early high PnR reps Kevin Porter Jr. and Christian Wood get, the smoother their half court offense looks. Jae’Sean Tate and Eric Gordon have gotten clean looks off simply due to spacing. – 8:20 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Garrison Mathews 100% sits in an ice bath after every game. – 8:18 PM
Orlando Magic PR @Magic_PR
The @Orlando Magic have now made at least one three-point field goal in 1,153 consecutive games, dating all the way back to March 17, 2007.
It stands as the fifth-longest active streak in the #NBA and also the fifth-longest streak in @NBAHistory.

Pregame hype video on Friday’s includes the Rudy T “Heart of a Champion” celebration. The long-time Magic fans in the building should not consider it anything personal, it’s a Friday Flashback thing. – 8:08 PM

Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
When the Rockets sent Josh Christopher to the G League they wanted him to focus on running an offense, so I asked Stephen Silas if he saw progress from him in that aspect of his game on Wednesday night: “He got us organized at times, he was aggressive for sure..” pic.twitter.com/ivjBqiIB0W6:45 PM

Here’s Stephen Silas’ update on the injured Jalen Green: “He’s progressing in a good manner, but slowly, and we’re just going to continue to evaluate week-by-week, but he’s not going to play any time soon.” pic.twitter.com/PiumMD8Tt76:40 PM

PMers: John Wall’s currently in limbo in Houston, while he and the Rockets work out exactly when and how much he’ll play this season. But there’s a way out for Wall, and a way to restart his career-emulate another former All-Star. In @TheAthletic: bit.ly/31vgn0P5:00 PM

#Texans-Colts game status/injury report: Houston lists 5 players OUT & 6 are QUESTIONABLE (If Amendola’s injury is longer than 3 weeks – & reportedly it will be – maybe the team will put him on IR, unlike earlier this year when he was hurt & he was inactive for 4 straight games). pic.twitter.com/PXJvS8lpCJ4:00 PM
