Another quality post. :roll:


Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz continue to hold the NBA's best record and have for the best part of the season. By far the closest team we've had to the 2 finals appearances, yet some people are still stuck in trade/fire everybody mode as if things are looking down.

:lol:

:lol:

come on, man, it's just emotions thru out game. If it's general board, I'll protect Utah to death and will remind GSP with his forecasts.

But it's game thread, and I'm critical of some specific player. Just only because I believe he can do better.

What a game by Donovan.

Boler and Harpring put up a graphic last night showing Donovan's fourth season is very similar to Dame's fourth season in terms of production, suggesting that DM could be on a similar career trajectory. I used to think Donovan was great, but was unlikely to ever become Dame-great, but now I agree with Boler and Harp that Dame-type production and efficiency could be in DM's future. I am doubtful that Mitchell or any player will match Dame's overall impressive crunch time and buzzer beater record though.
