Great duel with Steph vs Luka

Pelicans vs Memphis was pretty fun to watch too. Zo, Ingram, Zion doing their thing and Zo locking up Morant and an exciting 4th Quarter.


He’s put everyone in a cage this year. Even when he struggles on offense that defense is legit.

Heat are even worse. Other than the Lakers, the other final 4 teams are under-performing.

I’m just saying - folks used to clown me when I used to profess my love for Clarky.

Nice to see him having such a good season.

Heat too? Yikes.

Well Denver is OK (not great, but OK) so I guess the question is what’s going on in the East? Lol

Wow what’s up with the Mavs!? (I don’t know if somebody was injured or something I’m not actually watching the game I just saw the score.)

I was going to say that both the Nets and the Mavericks are such schizophrenic teams. But really is the season isn’t it? This season is just crazy and schizophrenic and all over the place LOL

The game was good anyway but the Bucks pulling out the win of course made it exceptional. But seriously that was a fantastic game. (bucks/paperclips)

Kings managed to lose a game where they were up 8 with a 1:09 left. La Melo Ball committed a flagrant foul to stop the clock, so the Kings had two fts to come and the ball. I have no idea how the Kings lost the game.

DeAndre Jordan has to be counting his blessing for being traded to the Brooklyn Nets. I think he has a better chance of winning the Larry O'Brien there than he did with the Sail Boat Boys.

Brooklyn went all out to construct a superteam. Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden are just that. If they don't win it this year as constructed, it won't be long.

Utah just lost to Philly in OT. Utah has now lost three of its last four games.

If this continues, maybe the Lakers will eventually catch and overtake Utah once AD is back and 100% healthy.

Seems like next season will be Brooklyn's best shot, as they'll have a full training camp together and a full offseason to address their lack of defense.

But KD can become a free agent after next season, and he and Harden are in their early 30s, so their window may only be for 1-2 more years after this one.

I really don't want Brooklyn to get Drummond. I think he'd move the needle for them more than LMA and/or Griffin.

It gives them a defensive floor balance, that they do not currently have, as well a physical weapon or style that they again do not have right now. More of a playoff type of move. I agree with what you are saying in that sense.

I do think LMA would be a very good fit next to AD and Bron.

LOL, who would have thought, that (about) 40 games in, that the Knicks would have won more games than the Celtics?

It's not about defensive floor balance really.

That dude buys possessions with offensive rebounds, causes 1-and-out defensive rebounding, and has high deflection steal/block/rebound combination rate. Elite in fact. Giving teams like Brooklyn, loaded with shooters, shot makers, and elite playmakers, a guy like that makes them basically undefeatable. Harden wasn't even the same Harden when Clint Capela was out with injury, and now you're giving him the lob threat with elite 4-out spacing, and that kind of rebounding ability?

You can't run an offense through him and DET even tried that. He actually has a clue with short roll passing and off-ball movement too. He doesn't need touches or shots.

Like I said, I welcome Blake or LMA to take shots away from Harden/Kyrie/KD. But it's not the same with Drummond who doesn't need them.

Not good for LAL.

I have the 76ers/Spurs game on really just because I didn’t change the channel after the Utah/Warriors game and aDanny Green all of a sudden is hitting shots. Please tell me he hasn’t been like this the whole time he’s been with the 76ers...why do we never get these versions of people?

Green can't carry a team offensively at all.

This Warriors / Raptors game is unbelievable. Folks need to see this when they start crying about how we are a lottery team without LeBron and AD. This is a lottery team literally without Steph, Dray and Klay.

D-Lo returned to the T'Wolves from injury on restricted minutes off the bench and put up 25/3/5 in a T'Wolves win vs the Kings.

I think this is like the 3rd game D'Lo and KAT have played together as a team in 2 years.

Bucks / Warriors game was fun too. The Giannis-less Bucks went off (really Middleton went off), but Steph went off-er. ‘Twas a good bball evening.
