Man, Nets and Hornets going at it. Dinwiddie, Harris, and RHJ have been key for the Nets.


and don't forget rodion kurucs. nets are 6-1(i think it is 7-1, i have forgotten) when kurucs is inserted in the starting five. kurucs is only 20 years old and is doing many things you won't see from a rookie.

kurucs can drive,shoot the 3, cut to the basket well, block shots, rebound, assist, disturb the passing lane. for his size he is fast. i am impressed that when kurucs guarded oladipo and booker, they have a hard time scoring. for kuruc's size he can guard well good sg. he can also guard at 3 and 4. you won't often see these from a 40th pick who is only 20 years old.

he is steal of the draft.

nets are still missing their best player,levert. nets have a bright future.

I'm starting to think the Celtics have been overrated by the mostly East Coast media. They're only 21-14 and are losing big to San Antonio right now. They lost back to back games recently to Detroit and Phoenix.

Celtics are a good team, but I don't see them being the best team in the east. Toronto, Milwaukee and Philly will be better than them at this rate by April.

His entire game is based around depending on the refs to get him to the line. Which is why he's useless in the playoffs when the refs get more lenient.

I was definitely expecting a more compelling game than that. San Antonio put the beat down on Toronto pretty much from the jump.

Makes me wonder about the Raptors...they could be a regular season team again and get dismantled in the playoffs , especially when the other team is motivated and plan for each game.

Not even Stevie wonder could've missed that out of bounds call! These refs are a joke! That Harden three must've been orgasmic for rockets fans.

Warriors have lost at home to the Raptors, Lakers, Blazers, Thunder, Bucks and the Rockets. Some of these were bad losses. Some people will say they can just turn it on in the playoffs, but what if these bad habits carry over into the post season. Nothing lasts forever and this might be the season they get dethroned.

Yup.

Thing is, there's not really any team out there to dethrone them.

Any of these teams strike you as a championship team?

1) Denver Nuggets
2) OKC Thunder
3) Houston Rockets
4) Portland Trailblazers
5) LA Clippers
6) LA Lakers
7) SA Spurs

Note: I only listed the West teams because if GS is going to get taken out, it'll be before the finals. If they make it all the way to the finals, they're taking out the East team.

The Warriors are vulnerable this year. I don't care who they play. They just don't have it in the same way. Perhaps they still trudge their way to the title one more time, but it just feels different. Everything feels harder. They've played a lot of basketball over the last 4 years, it takes a toll, and now add in the locker room discord on top of that.

It really sucks that we didn't get PG last offseason or don't have a second legitimate All-Star, because I truly believe we could have had a real shot at it this season. LeBron is that good.

Or the 2002-2003 Lakers.....I can see this being the last run of this current iteration of Warriors seeing how Klay and KD are free agents. One of the core 4 leaving might actually be good for them as it will bring back the hunger since they will have to make up for the production that will be missed and they won't sleepwalk thru the regular season.

No mention of last night's GSW- Sactown game? What a shootout, unbelievable! Curry is something else, how he manages to shoot the ball at such a high clip with all that volume is beyond me. I mean, he's hoisting them at a career high -11.3 attempts per game. And hitting 45%. Which - coincidentally - is 2% higher than the percentage Lonzo Ball shoots from the FT line.

And overtime. This is where I tap out on two teams I’m only mildly interested in... (OKC vs SAS)

EDIT: 2nd OT
