Damn... I'm gonna miss that Spurs vs Rockets game. Is Kawhi playing?

Games I am most stoked about watching well besides watching my Celtics take on the Jazz...the games that actually catch my interest are Spurs/Rockets most definitely because of Kawhi taking on Harden & CP3 but also Nets/Raptors because of the fact that Nets can they be the ones to dethrone the Raptors since the Raps are on a winning streak or have been lately

Kawhi is playing and we can see what kind of team shows up

He's listed as probable, so I assume he is. I imagine it'll be limited, he only played 15 mins the other night.

Pacers after that heartbreaker of a loss against the Thunder I actually want to see them beat the Pistons basically make a statement here in this game and after the way the atmosphere was for the Thunder/Pacers game last night the way they were going at PG-13 the fans booing him relentlessly and viciously it just recently gets me to the point where I just might have to start watching Pacers games on TV

And Oladipo has been having a career year more or less which is another reason why I get excited watching them

Very excited to see how the Rockets perform tonight, even if Kawhi is limited.

Mbah a Moute is out 2-3 weeks for the Rockets, which should hurt their depth. Obviously not a major loss, but the Rockets are not a deep team if they lose a guy or two. They only have 9 guys in their rotation when healthy. Nene also doesn't play both games in a back-to-backs, and the Rockets play tomorrow as well. So they're going to be limited to some degree.

Okafor and DLO on the same team is so laughably bad defensively its mind blowing... Yes I know DLO isnt playing right now...

Also i think the nets are doing genius things right now with their situation in terms of buying DLO/OKA basically but the cavs might end up winning the most out of that Oka trade.

Embiid was exhausted and he was out at the three point line against Robertson. The last couple of possessions didn't work with Embiid when he didn't get the ball in the low post, including those few non foul calls. The problem I have is with forcing the three, but Patterson played it perfectly.

the other problem i have is why even have embiid in there if you are running that stupid play? They wont double him while he is standing near the 3 point line... You basically take away any chance of him being doubled and instead go for a contested 3 while using embiids body? Its so dumb... Give it to embiid inside and use the double or let him go 1 on 1...

Simmons needs to get his actually shot going or something because embiid will die if we rely on him this much every game... If he doesnt carry we lose.

It hurts even more, losing a game like this that IMO shouldn't even be at this juncture. How'd it take a whole game to realize "Oh ****, we have a franchise center." You should GAME plan around that.
Imagine Phil saying "We'll game plan around Fisher, Horry and Fox shooting shots" lol.

If the sixers want to go anywhere in the playoffs Brett Brown is going to need to get better play calls down the stretch, or we need another head coach who can.

Lets go to Reddick. Because he is guarded by their best defender. Wtf coach

I've done nothing but defend Brett but geez I don't know if I've ever seen him draw up a good play

I forgot the Sixers were the Sixers. Really though, nice attempt..

Ben is amazing but he needs to shoot... he shoots all the time in practice so i really dont understand it... They play Embiid like a shooter the majority of the game and when we go down big they start going inside to him and thus we get back in it... Its either coaching or Stupidity... We do this **** all the time... There is no half court offense with an unstoppable offensive center but instead 3 after 3 after 3 to put us in a hole... But people keep defending our coach who cant draw up a play from the timeout if his life depended on it and game plans for guys like Reddick and Covington while waiting half the game to use Embiid at his strengths and its becoming infuriating.

Absolutely loved Westbrook taunting Embiid after the game! Priceless!

it would carry more weight if he didnt miss 3 dunks and didnt get his soul taken with 2 huge blocks by embiid.

That calf has got to be bothering Harden. He's looked a step slow since that Portland game, and he hasn't been nearly as quick on drives to the basket. But as well as Paul and the Rockets 3-point shooters are playing, it kind of doesn't matter. San Antonio made a nice run at the end there, though, so the Spurs certainly aren't out of it.

Harden with off shooting night.

Difference is we have cp3 this time.

Spurs 0-2 with kawhi this year. :p

Jk. Hope he gets fully healthy soon. Wanna play them full strength next time.

Yea. Pretty much his pre season these first 5-6 games. He's looked good shooting wise, more about getting his wind back. Gonna make a huge difference once he's back fully.

To be fair, the Rockets kicked the crap out of the Spurs with Kawhi playing 17 minutes in the first half. So this wasn't solely a "Spurs lost because Kawhi" type performance. With or without Kawhi in the second half tonight, the Rockets win this game.

Yea that Kawhi wasn't the real Kawhi lol. He said he wanted to play us full strength. Kawhi playing a few mins at a time is not full strength, so I wasn't wrong. But yea, you guys couldn't miss, and we couldn't hit anything in that first quarter and a half. It happens

And they made that run with Kawhi at the end of the half, to assume you guys win regardless is just an assumption, but not a fact. It's not like we haven't had big comebacks before. Especially with Harden struggling

The Rockets with 12 straight wins and 18 of 19. I love that they're starting to face tougher teams, though, as these games will be a much greater test for how much they've improved. They passed with flying colors tonight, but they face Milwaukee tomorrow and Utah on Monday. They get another tough three-game stretch starting on Christmas night with OKC, Boston and Washington, all on the road.

Not to get too far ahead of myself, but if they keep winning, they would have 21 straight with the chance to tie their 22-game record from a years back on Jan. 4 against Golden State. I kinda doubt the streak gets that long, but I would love to see that happen...

The Bulls win their 5th straight, and Mirotic is playing out of his mind since he came back.

This is a good young team with a lot of potential. They don't even have Lavine yet, but who needs him?

Messing up that top pick.

I want them to get bagley instead of a team like Dallas or atl.

It's nice having two superstars in a league where you need at least three to win it all.



Dear OKC and Philly,

Can this ****ing game end so I can watch the ****ing Rockets on my ****ing TV and not on my ****ing computer?

Personally thinking waving goodbye is a childish move that I would expect from my second graders. Love Embiid but He is jawing when Brook does that to him like he hasnít done it all year.

Huge difference between being emotional and being an arrogant, loudmouth, douche. Embiid is the latter. I LOVED Westbrook taunting his dumbass as he walked off the court. If you wanna dish it out you gotta take it especially when you catch that L.

Side note, even though Wesbrook has terrible shot selection and poor BBIQ you have to respect that guys motor/energy level. It's probably unparalleled in the history of the game. After 3 OTs he's still going hard every play and getting great lift on his jumpers....just incredible.

Yeah, cause he takes an abundance of short breaks. Where you see guys setting picks and cutting to the basket, you see Russ standing at the three point line waiting for the ball again. It literally is an ISO team to where Russ just takes breaks in these plays. He's high energy but that means he also uses it for some reckless play that results in a terribly poor shot. He's been getting really difficult and painful to watch this season. Last year, alright, you had an excuse. This year? C'mon. Why are you taking 33 shots?

Thatís why I think it funny people make a big deal about his rebounding #s being inflated. I donít think there is s guy in the league comes up with more tough lose balls/tough rebounds in the league. Your criticism is legit though dude makes some bad decisions

Bucks got a ton of injuries. Delly, Telly, Snell, Jet. Henson and Maker getting killed by every center in the league. #FireKidd Telly might be forced to retire. Blood clots in his lungs. Brogdon been in a funk since we landed Bledsoe. Bucks need a trade for Gasol or Jordan and Lou. Need Parker back as well.

His rebounding numbers are inflated any way you slice it. Take a peak at Steven Adams Orebounds (earned) compared to defensive rebounds (given to Westbrook). Westbrook sits with his hands in his knees if he doesn't have the ball on offense. You will never catch him running around multiple screens off ball, and will definitely never catch him running over to the ball handler to set a pick (saw a stat recently that he's yet to set a single pick for Melo). Does get all those missed team Free Throw rebounds tho.

He is a pain to watch.

No doubt. I will give him credit for trying be more of a floor general with this team but itís just not who he is and it maybe hurting them. I will give credit for passing it to Roberson over and over again last night on the clutch. Make the layup

If you want to criticize him for his off the ball play thatís legit. If you are saying he doesnít leave it on the floor and isnít a savage going after lose balls donít know what to say.

Stop being so emotional. Despite his ball dominance guys do seem to like playing with him, so time will tell
