MN won the first game w/ big games from Love/Pek and clutch 4th quarter by Barea. MN lost the 2nd game by a big margin w/ no Love or Barea and couldn't come close to keeping up. Rubio contributed literally zero points both games; he needs to have one his best games of his career if they want to win this. Williams needs to show up too - he's been good for 15 and 8 in a losing effort, but he needs to take it to the next step and start making some go-to plays on offense.

I know Kidd is a good defender but the Knicks are doing a little too much by asking him to guard Rudy Gay.

Looking forward to warriors/spurs. should be a good one.

Nets can take the atlantic division lead with a win and a knicks loss. tall task though, rockets spanked us last time. Nets need to contain asik if they want to keep it close... dude destroyed us last time... i think he had like 22-18 with 5 or 6 offensive put backs.

Dwill has had huge games the last 2 times out against lin, he dropped 20 in the first quarter last time vs the rockets

Yea i'm a bit puzzled by why he is starting, he's definitely not the same Kidd from the start of the season.

Pacers offense has been amazing and fun to watch the last 10 games or so, and even moreso after the ASB so far. The defense hasn't fallen off either.

I'm shocked Magic said that the Celtics getting Jordan Crawford was huge for them, I watched most of his games in Washington and he can shoot but he goes on some serious droughts. I know he made some bone head plays in Washington but Doc can quickly get him out of that but like I said as far as shooting goes, when he's on he can light it up but he's just like Ben Gordan now.

At this point just getting a rotation player is huge.. they just need bodies.

Espn has Keyshawn doing nba pre- game now? Worst enough they have non basketball playing analysis who act like they know everything about the game...now they got football players...wow. Shaq was right, atleast TNT has guys who've played the game.

Lol Bill Simmons ranting about the All-Star game being too buddy buddy and I agree with Bill on his rant about Parker, he's not the MVP over LeBron plain and simple.

I'm not the biggest Bill Simmons fan, but HE KNOWS the game, and the history of the game probably better than most NBA players.

You don't write a 800 page basketball book and not know the sport.
Enjoy every sandwich.

I really want Houston to get the 7th seed. Legitimate upset potential vs OKC
