Just broke up with my girl. Is it bad that I'm excited it leaves me more time to watch NBA/MLB?

And SixerLover, they're my two favorite teams (and two favorite players) to watch in the league right now. And Blake loves getting out of the paint to guard big 3's. They'll be head to head more than a few times. Can't wait.

Defenitely a collective defensive brain fart this second half. Very rare happening. The Bulls have allowed 1 opponent to score over 100 points in the last 20 games, and that was in OT. That's amazing. There are 15 teams in the league that give up 100 points on average a game.

DamnGoat and I commented on this in the Bulls GT, but the defensive effort really wasn't that bad tonight. There was contests on most of the Raptors shots, but they kept knocking them down. Toronto made some impressive shots in that 2nd half. I found myself being more annoyed with a few rebounding lapses and the Raptors making the shots than I was with the defense.

Rose and Taj were fantastic though. Along with solid games from Boozer and Deng.

Lol So Durant can't post up Foye, Foye totally shuts him down and your telling me he is better than Melo? Westbrook looked terrible and he's a top 10 player? PSD fails one more time.

This game shows me OKC isn't ready to contend. Either their players aren't that tough in clutch situations or Brooks is a terrible end of game coach.

finalverse
04-03-2011, 01:35 PM
this can't be seriousI'm serious. They have two allstars both of which people constantly claim are MVP caliber not to mention the rest of the team is good too. Yet they only have the 7th best record in the entire NBA and have double digit losses at home and on the road. Amongst the playoff teams they have gone into overtime 9 times, which is by far the most among all contenders. Worst of all, when you look at their record against teams over 500, they are pretty much well....500. For every win against a good team, they lose one.

For a team which on paper is so gifted (PSD thinks they have 2 MVP-like players)...they should be better. They shouldn't be going into overtime so much (I know their record in OT is awesome but it shouldn't happen so much)...which IMO is a sign that they don't have a hardcore, down your throat leader with a killer instinct to consistantly close games for them. Playoffs are a different story, they could very well win the championship...I'm just going by the regular season so far.
