My Obsv from yesterday match LaL @ Por

McGee was really fundamental last night and he is going to be one of the main reasons that will make Lakers enter the playoffs! Lebron was Lebron( his age is beginning to tell somewhat) , Ingram sucked, kuzma got hot for a lil bit of time, Kentavious defensively was also massive despite his limited minutes, Rondo just needed 4 more dimes to enter "playoff Rondo" mode. Stephenson was a bust. Ball was quiet had good looks but most of his shots were always short.


Nurkic was vgood although he should have been more aggressive IMO, Dame and CJ were at their usual best but honestly i felt it was their 3pt tries that let them down (Cj efficiency around the elbow was on point he should just keep hugging that area) Aminu defensively was also very good but 2 dunks and 0 made jump shots made his offense redundant, nic stau... (cant spell that) was also good especially in connecting with Collins and Nurkic.

All in all I would say LaL deserve that Win but the way they are closing games is not great and this their transition plays have got to get better

Por were Ok, i honestly thought that their backcourt would bail them out (which they nearly did)...now if only Seth curry could have added at least smth better than 0 pt in bout 20 smth minutes

Baba, I have to agree that it would be silly to pay Bell at this point. Conner has balled and there is no need for Bell. I hope he gets his pay though.

These new generation of RB are electric. K. Hunt, N. Chubb (watched him and S. Michelle at Georgia, I just hope he stays healthy this time), A. Kamara, T. Gurley, M. Gordon, S. Barkley are really good.
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:54am On Nov 05
For 3-4 consecutive seasons, we cannot get lucky with injuries. Tonight we have lost B. Martinez, K. Brice to add to C. Lindsley and a host of others.

and of course, Jones fumbles the ball. angry

That W yesterday must have drained them. Raptors with Kawhi not playing o.
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 5:29am On Nov 05
Ol boy these Raptors ehh. Nick Nurse must be a surgeon the way he has revived Ibaka's career and that of the Raptors offense. Kyle Lowry has turned to prime John Stockton since he took over! I don't know if it's only down to Kawhi but it says a lot for a guy like Lowry to be averaging 12 dimes per game. Crazy

Mike McCarthy is a mental midget but surely you didn't think you would beat GOAT Brady in his backyard

You guys would do well to plan for next year. Definitely not making the playoffs

Bell needs to fire his agent for advising him so phoolishly. Holy Christ I don't think even the most optimistic Steelers fan could have expected this to backfire so badly for Bell especially after the tie vs the Browns when he trolled us.

After watching Conner statistically obliterate everything Bell has done since joining Pittsburgh in half a season only a borderline ret@rded GM will pay Bell what he refused to accept from us. The worst part is if we want to be really petty we can put a transition tag on him for next year at only $9m and see if anybody matches it. The guy was just not smart about this thing. I'm just counting down to his deadline which is the 13th and I honestly hope he doesn't show up and use his reggae to spoil Conner's blues

Alvin Kamara and Todd Gurley are an absolute joy to watch. The two best backs in the League

Goal tending was horrible. Peka conceded some very cheap goals, particularly the first one which instilled some confidence in the jets. Taking him out did not resolve the abysmal goal tending as Saro was even worse. My guy Suban had a good playoffs if you ask me, the offense was not bad especially the first with Johansson but the 2nd and particularly the 3rd looked uncomfortable.
One of the reasons I love the NHL and hockey in general is the fact that home ice really means nothing. Congrats to the Jets, they missed the playoffs last year but this year they are in the conference finals. Not sure what the predators would do with their roster.

As for my blackhawks, next season is the last chance for coach Quenville because we don't do mediocrity. The core of the roster will stay but we neee some good trades and hopefully pick better in the upcoming draft.

Remember I told you the NHL is designed to promote dynasties? That is another reason I love it. For the sake of his legacy I pray Ovy nicks this year's Stanley cup.

@A40, Baba you remember this my quote earlier in the year? I have no problems with the firing of Joe Quenville because I saw it coming. We have not improved in anyway and the lines are really poor.

Joe Maddon (Cubs) is next. This upcoming season is his last chance. If the offensive, particularly the hitting slump continues, he will be let go.

Are you watching Wednesday rivalry?

TJ Oshie gives the caps the lead.
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 5:37am On Nov 08
Abeg, the NBA has to do something about the atrocious level of defending in the league. This is becoming shameful especially on national TV, players are just escorting each other and exchanging shots.
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 6:56am On Nov 08
Omo I can now see why Jimmy Butler wants out of the Timberwolves. Watching this buttersoft KAT play after signing that monster deal must be annoying to any pro player. It's shameful that Derrick Rose is the one rolling back the clock and playing like he's the one on a max deal.

No wonder Jimmy was kpanshin his babe

Quenneville was just the fall guy. Your GM is the problem. Your team is a weakly constructed one with overpaid underperforming veterans

Didn't catch the game. My Pens are on a 4 game slide. I really don't know what is wrong but it seems our bottom six is the problem as usual. The line chemistry has been abysmal and guys like Kessel, Brassard, Hornqvist are not justifying their salaries out there (Kessel to a lesser extent)

still tho Butler needs to learn to lay low. Each time he talks to press the focus shifts from KAT. Wise up and let the franchise player eat some arrows too

Teams are cracking 120 points like water. I understand fast paced bball sells more tickets, but you right - this is too watered down. After a while, people will get immune to the points barrage and just tune off. I would like to see a team lock down the warriors to 80 points tongue

You people will smell your yansh for that deal you gave Chris Paul
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 5:51am On Nov 09
Lol the Celtics still came back to win. Marcus Morris is the most clutch player in the league
Re: The NBA Begins by Manutd19: 6:30am On Nov 09
Bucks raping the warriors. Playing good D and scoring easily.
Re: The NBA Begins by Hardetayour: 6:39am On Nov 09
It's like the longer break the Warriors have, the worst they play.

Playing like they slept all through the rest days. Feeling lethargic.

It's been happening for like 3yrs now. Steve Kerr has said it numerous times. The boys don't like long breaks.
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 8:29am On Nov 09
The Bucks are a boogie team for the Warriors for some weird reason they always match up well against them
