This is the best game I've seen Dwight Howard play in a long time. He's been unstoppable.

Except that they won't be made great again while America will within the next 8 years.

Giannis is making a very strong case as the 2nd best player in the East, behind LeBron.

Dude, no one is trolling you... I'd be suprised if people actually understood what you were saying most of the time. When you call another man BAE it gets really confusing

CP3 acting like a little ***** every time he gets played physically cracks me up......anyway, HEAT just don't have the horses down the stretch of close games. Love their fight though.

For that reason I have stopped calling him BAE and now "GOAT". I expect things to improve ;)

Dallas made a great come back and then lost the game because of poor shot clock management. Don't know what Williams was thinking.

Not only did Harden get a triple double to pass The Dream for most all time in a Rockets uniform, but the Rockets hit 24 three pointers, setting a NBA record. Glad Preacher Man wasn't coaching the Pelicans........

Also set record for three point attempts in a game.

Holy **** the Rockets launched 61 threes, 2/3rds of their shots. Made 24 not bad. Never seen anything like that, even from the Warriors.

What's funny is that they set the record for attempts in a game a few weeks ago with 50. Didn't last long and was shattered tonight.

two games in a row where Jimmy Butler doesn't even challenge Giannis. stays out of his way and plays passive. giannis is on another level now and even the Jimmy Butlers of the world don't want a piece. i was surprised to see Jimmy not once take the reigns in these blow outs. then again, the bulls are a mess maybe he's lost faith in his coach- who should probably be fired. the bulls have some of the worst rotations in the league.

I want to say that last night is the perfect example as to why D. Williams never made the jump. why he petered out as an all-star and quickly regressed well before the end of his physical prime. that last play had nothing to do with age, body, athleticism or any kind of physical drop off. it was all in between the ears. high schoolers know better than to do what he did, he's not a conscious basketball player.

Hoiberg is my bet for first coach fired this season. there are a few good options but not as many candidates as in years past.

I'm hoping the Cavs can swing a trade to acquire D-Will. He'd be the perfect backup PG for our team. The rumors are swirling a bit.

Youngest triple-double in history: LeBron at 20 years, 20 days (in 2005). Ingram has 9P, 9A and 10R w/2 min. left. Hes 19 years, 106 days.

Damn, Ingram almost made history :crying:

Knicks are playing like a bunch of bums again...

Rockets had a really nice comeback in the 4th and won their 10th straight game. James Harden made another strong MVP case.

Except historically the MVP has gone to players who suck on defense many, many times. Off the top of my head, Curry, Nash, Magic, Iverson and Rick Barry all come to mind.

Because their dream team is unable to take down the other bandwagon teams and live up to their own expectations.

If they wanted to improve, they wouldn't have traded Robin for Rose and just wait til next season to get him as a UFA but they decided to do the same thing that got them Melo by trading all their playoff bound talent.

Maybe patience is not allowed in NY or something smh

Rebuilding is kinda hard without draft picks. IE: 2005 Eddy Curry traade the Picks turned into LMA, and Noah. The Starburry first rd pick in 2010 turned into Gordon Heyward. Oh and the Barngini (SP?) turned into Jamal Murray.

You can't rebuild without draft picks.

TD getting his jersey retired.. Going to be an emotional one for Spurs fans. Hopefully they don't screw it up with a loss to the Pels

Man that would be sweet if we had Jamal Murray, but the Bargnani pick turned into Poeltl... Murray was off the board

You are right my bad; I still do believe that you can't rebuild without draft picks, though.

Anybody notice what Gobert did to Gasol last night!? 21/12/1/3 and perfect 9/9 from the field while holding Gasol to 8pts on 22 shots!! Gobert has been straight beasting lately (several weeks now) and leads the league in shooting %. He has definitely become a top center in the league this year. I was concerned after last year if he would be worth that huge contract extension he got he has been spectacular so far. And he's been doing all this with his starting PG missing more games than he has played.

Didn't watch the game but I can't imagine any of those points being more than put backs or lobs. Defensively Whiteside, Gobert, Jordan are in a class of their own. Gobert at his age hasn't even tapped his potential in my opinion.

GOATbert is ******** on the league right now. Take a look at this:

Hassan Whiteside + DeMarcus Cousins + Karl-Anthony Towns + Dwight Howard + Marc Gasol are averaging...

a whopping 11.2ppg on 30%FG vs. GOATbert so far on the year.

GOATbert is averaging 14/13/4(blocks) and .77%FG on them in return.
