That loss by us was amazing.


So many of those this year.

And looks like Atlanta and Miami will win.

But we have the easiest remaining schedule out of KnIcKs, Atlanta and Miami don’t we?

Yeah, I think we will end up the 4th seed.

Maybe.

Yeah, I think we will end up the 4th seed. I’m that confident and will stop being a mod if we don’t get the 4th seed.


Big call mate, lucky I’ve quoted this.

Aaron Gordon started playing well after he got traded but he’s gone back to the same player he was in Orlando.

Unreal how good this dude is, I thought he'd be a fun player who was ultimately gonna be way too inefficient to be good.


Cute, but lots of guys can make an outlet pass with fewer style points.

Turner is a little better at shooting and shotblocking, if the numbers are to be believed, while Kornet is a little better at defending in space.

on 26 shots and how the hell did the Bucks even without Giannis give up 145 points??

Oh and someone will Max out K Olynyk the way he has been playing :D


9-15 on 3s (and he's still only at .319 from 3 on the season).


Look again at the numbers. .317 is Olynyk's figure in Miami. His season numbers are now a bit higher (.338 as I post this, thanks to .396 in Houston).

Mo Wagner is in the house.. just not ours. Pretty good stat line as a starter for Orlando in a win over Memphis, 8-15 4 for 4 from FT and including 4-6 from 3 :D

Right now he's out playing Fournier :D :o :-?

kidding, well sort of
Boston will never win 18 BECAUSE of Brad Stevens

Watching what MPJ is doing lately is very impressive. Since J Murray went down about 10 games ago, MPJ is shooting near 60% FG and 46% from 3 while averaging +25 per game. He, like Kemba Walker doesn't excel anywhere near as much as a 3rd option (with J Murray) his increase in shots has blown up his efficiency.

Reason for this post is simply what I have stated for a long while. Kemba J Brown and our current GOAT Tatum all need certain amount of touches. Not knocking Kemba, just the way it is with many high volume scorers.

a lot of people can put a ball through the hoop with fewer style points but would you watch? I'm not into watching people walk up and lay it in all game. flair is what keeps people watching. that's a great pass!

Blake Griffin just threw down a ridiculous put back dunk yes dunk. Who was it that joked once he left Detroit he’d be throwing down jams again.

Didn’t think he really could even slide his feet let alone dunk like that.

Nets lost to the Bucks.

Giannis had 49 points.

The Nets are just not good on defense.

A recent ESPN power ranking remind me that it's not just us; LOTS of teams have injury/health issues these days.

https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/31373053/nba-power-rankings-all-30-teams-playing-stretch

Phoenix -- an exception, mainly. Not coincidentally, they're doing great.
Utah -- Mitchell and Conley are hurt.
Philly -- an exception, mainly, and doing great. But Embiid is always a health risk.
Nets -- It's always somebody, currently Harden.
Denver -- Lost Murray. Lost to us. Winning everything otherwise.
Bucks -- Didn't Giannis miss some games recently?
Clips -- Kawhi, Beverly and Ibaka have all been out or spottily available.
Knicks -- an exception. Perhaps not coincidentally, hot.
Lakers -- Both LeBron and AD.
Dallas -- Porzingis, still.

And so on.

Doncic needs to **** the Heat tonight like he did us twice!

And, in so doing, in conjunction with the Blazers beating the bald+brows on Friday, push the Fakers down into the Play In 7 seed.
SamIam 2010: Truth's ability to play so incredibly efficiently is so UNDERAPPRECIATED. Bballcool 2012: Amazing how great Pierce has been for so long. Continues to defy age! KG 2013: P is original Celtic. Wherever he goes, we go. This is The Truth's house.
