You take the Bulls? They've lost 3 straight, and we're at the tail end of this road trip. I've got my doubts, but we'll see

Nah Spurs. Wasn't much of a road trip for you guys and you got a day off. I think they could get off to the lead but I keep seeing them go ISO heavy in the 4th quarter in close games and that's when the Spurs will hopefully take advantage and notch another on their perfect road-record belt. Should be a pretty good game though.

True.. I just worry about playing teams at home when they're on losing streaks. Well, teams who actually compete lol.

Hoping for a good game too though. Butler/Leonard should be fun to watch

Bulls have won 15 straight on TNT on Thursdays lol.

We need a ****ing win. Doug is finally back but he will be rusty, someone has to step up off the bench. I'm not worried about the starters at all because theyre not even close to the problem. Our bench has been the worst in the league since Doug and MCW went out.

Gotta get the 2nd TV out for the third stream tonight with my Raiders on Thursday and the Dubs + my bet going. This is crimping my style.

@Spurman, yeah no ****. Guess which game is getting the mute? : /

Minny is so talented. It's only a matter of time before they put it together.

DeMar is having his worst game of the season. Missing so many easy baskets.

Utah's about to get embarrassed on their home court on a Warriors road b2b. Just too many injuries. Disappointed they're opting to sit Hayward for his hurt finger or whatever (see: punting). The Frenchman's rim protection ain't gonna do it tonight.

Yeah it's stupid when I bring out the 2nd TV (lady is at home with the parents though so I get full control ; ). They're both 60+ inch I think so it gives me a good view of 4 games + the side BS like my favorite lil' bball community over hur.

Utah has 2 starting Frenchman. That's awesome haha (I'm actually a French citizen also so it's funny to see).

**** game from Derozan for sure but Val and Lowry picked up the slack. Staying impressed by Wiggins over here though. I did not think he would be this good this season after what he showed last year. Kid has worked on his game. Much much props.

And yea I remember people commenting on that when we had TP/Bobo starting in the finals lol. But shame they held out Hayward like u said . Was gonna be tough enough without Hill.

KD did nothing and he's a +24 through his 8 minutes in the 1st quarter. If that gives an indication of how that game is going.

Wiggins, 25 points 1 assist. Yup, he's definitely the next Rudy Gay. They won't win with him.

Still only 21 and showed enough off-season improvement that I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Wouldn't have said that last year.

We scored 9 points against the Bucks in the 2nd, came back from half and scored like 36 in the 3rd. Idk what we'll put up, but I'd bet they won't shoot 31% still. Lots of good looks being missed

I actually stopped watching the Warriors game but I just checked back and it's an 8 point game in the 4th with a lot of time to go. If the Jazz had any scorer on the floor they could actually pull it off. But they don't so they won't. #DontSitForFingers

Gotta say though after the last week of action where i got to see a lot of teams play; there are no contenders.

It is the Cavs and it is the Warriors. Everybody else is fodder. Never seen anything like this.

It's December, so it's too early anyway. Everyone had the Clips as the greatest team a couple weeks ago. This is why I steer away from knee jerk reactions lol

I'm happy with where we are. 18-5 (after tonight), with 7 new players and lots of room for improvement. Once March comes around, we'll get a better idea of contenders

I've seen them a lot and just looking at the numbers, I think a team like Portland or a healthy Utah has a better chance at beating the Spurs in the 1st round than the Spurs would against GSW. I actually think the Rockets have the best chance against the Warriors before the Finals. Their 3pt shooting could sway **** if they get lucky and/or go off.

I'd be really worried about Parker and Gasol having enough left in the tank to make a long run. But the Spurs have some really nice guys off the bench in Dedmon/Manu/Simmons and especially Mills.

Spurs are going to be in the mix, but when matched up with the Warriors they'll have to focus on attacking the inside and locking down Durant.

Yeah that was pretty terrible, but there were a few calls that went against the Bulls in that fourth as well (like the two Patty Mills turnovers and the questionable Wade offensive call).

Spurs have looked better with parker on more than not this yr.

I fully expect Dedmon to either start or get more mins than Pau come post season too. (2nd/3rd round) Same with Patty vs Parker. So I'm not too concerned cause I know Pop will make adjustments.

Aldridge is the guy who needs to get going. Last yr he had a similar start, and picked it up in January. We'll see

But just a week or 2 ago didn't you think the clips were that team?

I'm just saying, it's still quite early. What we saw now from teams isn't what we'll see come March/April. Lots of ups and downs throughout the course of an 82 game season

Man Spurs aren't that aggressive on offense. Kawhi attacks but other than that it's their big men shooting jumpers or throwing up hook shots. They should've attacked the basket a lot more. I wish we had Patty Mills, he worried me more than anyone tonight.

They missed lots of open shots. Pretty sure they're one of 5-10 offensive teams. This was just a weird / off game

Sixers game was fun last night. We got down and managed to come back for the 11 point win. Ersan Ilyasova lead the way points wise with 23 points.

But bigger was how well our two rookies played:
Embiid - 14 points, 7 reb, 2 ast, 3 stl, 4 blocks, +27 His shooting was off last night and the last few games but I'm not too worried about it. Teams have been hacking the hell out of him and he's not getting the calls yet.
Saric - 13 points, 5 reb, 1 ast, 1 block, +10
