I kinda like the Bulls' chances in this one. Their defense and rebounding is still top notch, and that will keep you in every game regardless of your opponent.

The Clippers should win tonight, but back to backs aren't easy, especially coming off such a great win against the Spurs.

That's where Harden helped the team. On nights where Westbrook didn't have it, Harden handled the ball instead, and it prevented Westbrook from completely shooting his team out of a game. Brooks seriously needs to keep him on a leesh, especially on nights where he's throwing up brick after brick. I mean hello, you play with Kevin Durant, give him the ball.

Domefavors has spoken man. Our players just can't defend like the Nets. With Hump and Lopez on the defensive post why even try?

The players have seen what playing defense does. They're going to stop defending because it's not like they have gotten wins from it this season or in the past.

Bulls gutted it out, I think they would've won if Rose was playing. Westy nearly literally shot OKC out of the game, and if the Bulls had their star, they probably would've prevailed. In the meantime, is Hinrich seriously the best they can do until Rose comes back? He is awful.

It's pretty normal for players to just say fck it when they don't see the results they want. Thibs really works his guys hard too.

Honestly, I've never seen such a quick drop, it's amazing. He was amazing with us as a 6th man, but the lockout killed him. When he won 6th man, that's the summer he played with Team USA at the world championships. Best shape I'd ever seen him in.

It is amazing how far Odom has fallen. His shooting percentage this season < Half his career shooting percentage

Team USA gave him a chance to workout with them over the summer, but Lamar decided he'd rather do nothing.
