Oh I wouldn't want to play the Celtics in the playoffs... But even then, not having Ray Allen to hit those daggers in games etc etc takes away from their 'veteran' allure.... Though with a good coach, and a PG like Rondo; they'll be around... And get more consistent.. I just think with another year on KG and Pierce.. certainly not as threatened by them... Would opt for a bunch of other matchups before them in the playoffs however.

No defense at all in the LA vs. HOU game. It's like 2 Pringles teams playing against each other.

40 points in the first quarter. D'antoni is great.

Brooklyn has a serious schedule coming up. Let's see what they're made of now.

drummond is a good passer, good defender, has a very soft touch around the rim, and is still SO young.

meh...i mean, it's close. i'd be good with either. biyombo/drummond frontcourt would be very good defensively and, in a couple of years, offensively as well.


idk man i dont believe in that front court offensively now or in the future. MKG infuses the entire team was a great work ethic though..can't be understated in a place with such a losing culture.

Yeah it's pretty ridiculous that after such a hot start we've gotten off to playing against competitive teams.. The Nets are barely a few games behind us.

This is not championship basketball. Go ahead and run with Miami and watch what happens to you.

Not for long. We have an easier stretch and they should go down quickly. I don't believe in them.

i agree mkg's work ethic is infectious. i just think that frontcourt has more potential. biyombo showed some legit post up skills last year (in glimpses) and drummond has also shown that in the past.

i'm curious to see what the bobcats do with hendo. a taylor/mkg 2/3 is legit.

Oh I don't either. It's just funny that you can look at the standings and see they're only 1 game behind and yet clearly don't look like a team on our level. they got Lakers, Clippers, Knicks Celtics again, Miami OKC upcoming. We'll see for sure.

6 assists for Kobe.

he only need 4 more and 3 boards to have a triple double IN THE HALF.

40 points in the first Q? Dantoni already implementing his stuff..

By the box score, looks like Lin still struggling

lin keeps blatantly calling for the ball at the 3 pt line. it's coming off as facetious.
