Since getting traded to the Indiana Pacers, Evan Turner has been silent on twitter.

That silence was broken on Friday, when he wrote a long but relevant message to his former team:

Tweet of the Night: Sarcastic tweet about Jermaine O’Neal from Rockets’ official twitter account backfires

Jermaine O'NealThe Golden State Warriors were missing their defensive anchor in Andrew Bogut, but Thursday’s game against the Houston Rockets was one they couldn’t afford to lose.

Heading into the contest, Houston was the only Western Conference team the Warriors had failed to beat this season. Just as importantly, a win against them would bring Golden State within four games of the third seed – still well within reach with 27 games left to play.

Tweet of the Night: Flip Saunders says Love did not ask to be traded

Leave a comment

Kevin LoveWith the trade deadline less than 24 hours away, there have been some rumors about  the interest in Kevin Love from teams like the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks. This is no surprise: who wouldn’t want to go after one of the best power forwards in the league?

The real question is, why would a report surface about the desire to go after him if he isn’t available? Are the Minnesota Timberwolves considering the idea of shopping him in fear that Love may eventually leave them due to the lack of improvement of their roster? That can’t be true because the front office has already said a number of times that he isn’t going anywhere. It could be that those teams will try to go to extreme measures and offer up ridiculous assets to try to acquire him, but Flip Saunders has never shown any hint of interest in trading his best player away, and that sentiment continued on Wednesday.

For the time being, Love isn’t going anywhere.
