No one on that team should get any rest. You get blown out like that and you will play until you figure things out.

I didn't see the game but as bad as Russ may have been, it clearly wasn't all on him. PJ Tucker was a -41 as well. Harden's +/- was pretty bad early on but improved as he began getting his typical free throw attempts.

Eric Gordon has been a huge problem. He's taking russ/harden type shots and shooting like Roberson.

I can’t believe the warriors smoked the trailblazers. Also, Kings amd Suns have traded places this year. I wish Ernie were still with the wizards. Troy Brown is a guy I’ve liked since the draft.

Giving Phoenix a young, but coach with some playoff expirience as an assistant, and mainly, getting a floor general in Ricky Rubio, giving them some "euro" savyness in Baynes, and a solid rotation option in Saric and Kaminsky, finally put Booker off the ball, and turned back to a player he was before all that bullocks with him as a main ball handler last season. MVP candidate season so far.
He'll be in that discussion till the end.

Ricky magistrated as a PG this year in FIBA championships, look at his tourney and see how he evolved in last 2-3 years with Utah. He also has atleast 4-5 more years if he develops his outside shot the more older he is, and his defense was great from his junior days in Barca.
They'll compete for top5 spot in west.

I’ve been a pretty big fan of Collins. This is disappointing.

This looks a lot like when I accidentally used the shot stick in NBA 2K back in the day.

He's two inches shorter than curry. I'll be curious to see how he handles the physicality of the playoffs.

I just think it's hilarious that nba players are stopping in Colorado to buy weed like they don't have a guy for that.

I'm really skeptical about the seizure and linking it to thc. Is that a thing that happens? Maybe there were harder drugs involved.
