HEAT


Good game by N.O but Miami ball movement & 3pt shooting was just too much for them. Also there was a F'ing one eyed Dragon torching the **** out of them.

Easy win for the Jazz tonight. Rudy kept Drummond in check and Hayward with a huge game doing everything on the court. Exam is starting to play some decent ball off the bench. He may finally be getting himself back to form after the knee injury.

What a weird play.

Ginobili to line with 2.5 secs left

Gotta miss 2nd imo.

Pop and Co. weren't answering questions on it, so we'll probably never know.

That play where the fouled Manu, screwed us up. I know they were going for another 3, and probably would've gotten a good look based on their previous play.

Just carelessness, but I still like our chances at the #1 seed

Ah. I read some speculation about removing cancerous skin but it's all wreck less speculation.

Hope he's well. I love pop.

Yeah that was a weird sequence. I just knew yall were about to get another look but play never developed.

I do too especially with 2 more against Warriors.

Skal Labissiere looks like he could become a very good player.

Meanwhile the Kings are possibly playing themselves out of a draft pick by beating the teams around them in the standings. Good to get the young guys the experience though.

nepotism is the only thing keeping Austin Rivers in the NBA, cause it sure isn't his basketball ability (or lack thereof).

With the win Bucks are now 7 seed. 1 game back of 6 seed Pacers. Also Bucks own the season tie breaker versus Pacers.

Man... Kevin Love is so much better than Frye. He rebounds, passes, and defends better.

JR's perimeter defense was sorely missed.

Can't be overlooked how well Denver has played in the last 42 games (23-19) for being absolutely destroyed with injuries unlike any team in the west competing for the 8th spot.

Got a little lucky playing LA without Jordan or Blake tonight.

Wait, Chandler and Gallinari are out again? It seems like those two take every 2nd night off.

At least Jordan and Blake are out too, that will balance things out.

I feel much better knowing Austin Rivers is starting.

I won't call Gobert dirty but he does a lot of little underhanded things to gain leverage. Smart of him. That's part of what makes him a helluva player.

JR and LeBron are the only ones hitting open shots.

JR is so dynamic. His ability to defend and score outside the flow of the offense is crucial.

Gallo has a bone bruise, Ill has a groin injury. Faried is back though.

Nuggets are a really fun team to watch. They should be a top 4 team next year, if they're healthy.

They are finally buying in on defense! Depends on their offseason but they aren't a sub .500 team next year assuming injuries doesn't kill us like it did this year.

I definitely see them being a top 4 team in the West. The Clippers are getting older and more worn out and are trending downward. Next year Jokic is a starter at the beginning of the season. Murray will be better (you'd assume). They keep Gallo and Chandler. Get rid of Mudiay. They have a pretty solid bench too.

Triple double watch for Jokic again.

10 pts, 8 ast. 7 rbs.

Jokic with his 5th triple double of the season in 21 minutes of play. Will probably end up sitting out the 4th quarter.

15,10 and 10.

What are the odds Mason Plumlee gets his triple double?
10 points 9 rebounds 6 assists probably getting the majority of the 4th q minutes

They will either keep Chandler or Gallo not both. Juancho is ready for big minutes especially with an offseason in the weight room. Gallo has a max contract looming, Chandler doesn't want to be in Denver. Chandler maybe dealt this offseason, but the young group Denver has, has progressed more than any young team in the league this year in my opinion.

Klay with 21 on 8-9 (5-5 from 3). 8 and a half minutes into the game.

That dude can score in bunches like no one else. He is literally like being on fire in NBA Jam at times.

Still can't believe we got that guy for some cash from Denver. Could you imagine him and Jokic!?!? That would be one hell of a tandem of bigs. It may have not worked like with Nurkic but it's interesting to think about.

All I know is that I'm glad we have him locked up anchoring the paint for a good long while.

Gobert is my favorite non Nugget. It would of worked well I think with Jokic. Nurk never worked cause he just wanted to post up all the time without moving.

I don't even think he is dirty. Compare him to Zaza or Jordan he is a saint.

How do you feel about Gordon Hayward's season?

I think he has been pretty incredible and only wish he'd get more shot attempts. Dude is shooting well from the floor and his FTr is very respectable - if he even put up 4 more shot attempts a game (to average 19fga) he would be putting up about 27'ishppg if adjusted for free throw attempts.

What I notice about the Jazz having played them twice in the past 2 months - their defense is as good as advertised. They rotate extremely well, cause turnovers, and Gobert's presence is felt. 3rd best defense right now and 13th best offense.

Would they benefit more offensively by giving Hayward more shot attempts?
