Looking forward to watching some John Holland tonight. O/U on 15 points scored? I'd take the over.

I wish we'd sit LeBron, though. Might as well since our roster is completely gutted. And if we lose, then it'll be fueling the value of the Nets pick. A Hawks win would put the Nets 1 game out of having the worst record in the East.

Can't wait for Heat vs Bucks...it's going to be a special moment. When Wade checks in off the bench in front of the home crowd the energy in that place will be unreal! Can't wait to hear Michael Baiamonte say "Dwwwyyyyyyaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnneeee Wade!" after a basket again!

I thought the Nuggets were going to give the Rockets a little bit of a scare tonight, but I'm looking at the game and they're 2-17 from 3 lol. I'll have to watch some of the 2nd half, I'm thinking they make a bit of a game of it. PS I think today marks the 1 in 100 time the Cavs actually won a bet for me (scared of them fading late with the short lineup so I just went with the 1st H). And yeah, Embiid simply ate AD's lunch tonight. Clips are looking to retake the 8 seed over the Pels after their respective games tonight. At the very least a half game back, and the Pels aren't making the playoffs now. I actually think Utah swoops it. They're playing great now that Gobert is in full swing (another W coming tonight against Charlotte).

This is the best defense I've seen us play all year. JustTheHawks, yeah I know but still. They were puttin up 120 on our old man squad.

His energy is the difference... he's a better version of Delly because he can guard more players. Funny how LeBron and Cedi already have so much chemistry.

24 minutes dayum.

He could be, for sure. Not close to there yet, but when you see flashes like this you (meaning everyone) can see the future is special if he ever manages to put together a full season. Hell even if he can manage 65 games and all the playoff games, that would be enough.

it's also a different D'antoni team. His suns team was playing in a tougher decade of ball and the game was slowed down when teams pressured them more. Now, every team is trying to do what D'Antoni is doing but Rockets are the best at it. I will wait until Harden proves me otherwise in the playoffs but they are looking like they can beat any team right now. harden should be MVP. No question.

LOL @ the Embiid comment.

And no, the Warriors won't be massive favorites if/when they go h2h if the Rockets are 100%. Or at least definitely should not be, and the Warriors definitely won't roll them if they do come out on top (I think they would in a very, very hard fought series). I've seen enough of both to realize that this Rockets team is as legit as it gets when they're healthy. They're a legendary level offense with plenty of D to go around now + multiple superstars.

MTM, you are aware that Philly would have to either pass Toronto or Boston to get into the top 4, right? The rule lets one team from another division bypass the other division teams if they're record is better (why Toronto/Boston are fighting for 1/2 at the moment), but NOT 2.

Even if Philly had the 3rd best record in the East, if Toronto and Boston are ahead of them, they fall to 5th

CP3 has been disastrous and the Rox are just ROLLING a very solid Nuggets team right now. Harden's running away with the MVP at this point, and the Rockets should scare everyone, including Golden State. I don't think any other team has a chance against them to be honest, and there's no way GS is heavy favorites in the matchup.

Edit: Maybe Cleveland also depending on how quick the new squad can gel.

Heh, even if the Cavs gel I think their ceiling is too low.

At this point it's a two team race, with OKC being a dark horse. If the Cavs reach the finals it'll be hard fought, then they'll get smashed by the West winner.

:laugh2: it's all good... It's a pretty stupid rule... you could have the 5 best teams in the conference in one division, and they would be 1,2, 5,6,7

I'm sure the 2 seed would enjoy playing the basically the 5th best team in the conference :laugh2:

I wouldn't take too much away from the performance.

Houston is the worst possible matchup for Denver. Denver has now lost like 5 straight against them. They're too slow defensively and everyone on Houston's starting lineup is quick for the slow Nuggets.

Denver is 7th in offense this year with wins against the warriors (better version of rockets) and thunder. Theyíre young and athletic, i donít see any slow players other than Jokic.

Also, not like Austin is a bad player. He isn't the same scrub Austin from a few years ago for sure. He also only played one more minute than Lou, so they basically played the same.

Lacks vision/playmaking and that "feel" for the game to me, so as a truly effective game changer day in/out I don't see it, but he's definitely a talented + exciting player (great range) and I'm sure he'll make a few All Stars out East. Better than Wiggins yeah.

I just don't think that's his game, but hey he's young, and that would be a huge development if it happens. More than anything I'd like to see you guys score Doncic or Porter. There's some serious franchise shifting talent in this draft, and the league is better when Chi is winning.

understanding basketball is the first key... he is a center running the fast break against 2 other guys with no help and he slammed it away like only he can. It looks less than great because you are not seeing the situation... He had every angle covered and the second mirotic tried to pass embiid would have been all over it... His size and presence basically boggled the mind of mirotic and left him with only one option... ATTACK... and when you attack a superior/stronger/faster animal you will lose every single time.

I do understand he situation, which is why i said that it is a great and impressive play, never said it wasnít. But itís not as amazing as you made it seem.

He stopped Mirotic, the average unathletic PF on a fast break. Thatís what takes away from it being that amazing. Hell Mirotic ran straight to him, he didnít know now what to do. And the other man was too far down the court to be a threat.

Thatís just my opinion tho, to each their own.


P.S Embiid is going to have nothing to say about MVP this year, thatís just ridiculous.

Sorry guys, I just checked again, and it said that they amended the rule this year or last year, so the division winners are only guaranteed a playoff spot... So Philly technically could end up in the top 4, as long as they pass one of the division winners. My bad, sorry for the confusion this caused. :(

He's the same as he was when he was in Minni ... it's just that there nobody watched. He can play at an incredibly high level ... but he can also disappear. If he can regularly play at something close to what he's capable of then he'll easily be top 5.
