I'm eluding to the matchup between Curry and Kyrie being lopsided. Obviously they're a great team and I exaggerated a bit but I don't see the Warriors beating them with Curry not cancelling out Kyries production at the very least. The game was close because Klay Thompson was able to get to his spots and score a bunch, JR usually does a great job on him and guarding Kyrie will have an effect on his legs in a series.

The other chance they have is if Durant outplays Bron in a 7 game series. I'd bet on Curry>Kyrie before that any day

Guys Embiid is a monster.

 

If he's capable of remaining healthy, he'll go down as one of the greatest big man of this era.  NO QUESTION

High usage bigs are overrated.

Westbrook and LeBron and Harden are beasts

Both ESPN games today were crazy fun.

For the first time this season, Durant looked like OKC off night Durant.

^

Damn GS outscored 32-13 in 4th to force overtime?

Wonder if anyone was still watching.


Praying for  1. Youngsters Ballin (Hockey stick growth curve for Randle, D'lo, Nance and Clarkson ASAP) 2. Miracle Trade (Lakers need a top 10 player...or maybe 2 to compete w bigboys) 3. Kick Ass Rooks (Ingram and Zubac getting playing time and impacting games)

READY FOR SEASON!

Curry and green were so pissed at Durant towards the end of the game.

Durant still thinks it's Oklahoma thunder. Gotta set a screen for curry and you create two mismatches, let curry decide what to do then, either attack zack or pass the ball to Durant who would be guarded by Conley. Durant demanded the ball from curry who didn't want to give up the ball and shot a 3 over Zbo. Green was pissed the whole possession.

Credit to Durant for acknowledging his mistake.

I said this before and I'll say it again, Golden state will go as far as Durant and green take them, especially the latter.

^ I'd be more concerned about Curry tbh. Hard to remember the last time he had any semblance of success against Cleveland. He's been awful. Remains to be seen if he can get over that crucial mental hurdle.

yo.

Now that the first half of the season is over (for some teams), I would pick the most disappointing team so far this season.

 

The TWolves are the most disappointing team (at least in the West) so far this season. I know they are inexperienced and young (just like the Lakers), but to be second to the last place in the West is kinda disappointing and mildy surprising to say the least.

 

I did not expect them to be contending for the 8th seed but I surely did not expect them to be second to the last team in the West. Before tonight's game, they were tied with the Mavs for last place.

 

It just goes to show you that even though a team contains two bright young stars (Wiggins and Towns), it still need a proper system in order to succeed in this league.

 

Furthermore, it seems that Thibodeau is having a hard time in coaching this young team. It will be interesting to see if he could adapt into a new environment. Remember, he also controls the basketball operations so it is not an easy task for him.

 

The second in my list is the Trail Blazers. Nobody expected them to be 7 games under .500 at this point of the season. Maybe thats what happens when you overpay Evan Turner!

Also, I would like to add something: Since the Knicks beat the Lakers on December 11, the Knicks are now 3-11 in that span.

That Rondo situation in Chicago while not surprising, still kind of is.

5th straight DNPCD, and on a night where fans got a Rondo bobblehead.

(Read a story he was the only Bull who didn't play...ouch).

 

Anyone know whats with that dude other than known malcontent?

^ Hope you're being sarcastic, but in case you're not, yes as I said, against Cleveland specifically most definitely. Quite obvious to anyone.
