Please don't be a players only broadcast.

Also, :smoking: hopefully CJ and Dame don't get too upset

Big game for the Blazers. Time to see if their recent hot streak has elevated them to being competitive with the elite.

Celtics will trade Kyrie for Lillard and Kyrie will become a locker room cancer.

Blazers wouldn't do that

Also, man is it showing on the Raptors when Derozan is out :laugh2: looks like we might lose to the Magic tonight

I guess they're gonna rest some guys now seeing that they might be a little harder to reach (If Irving is legitimately injured, then the Raptors are basically assured the #1 seed come playoff time if they can at least split those games), or is Derozan actually hurt? I didn't see the Thunder/Raptors game, but I saw the team basically tantrum off the court after the game :laugh2:

Magic with the epic tank. 4 points in the 4th with only 1:30 remaining. :laugh2:

:laugh: Never mind what I said... Orlando has scored 4 points in the last 15 or so minutes and the Raptors went from 11 down in the third to 11 up late in the fourth.

I'm sorry Magic fans, your team is terrible.

Woof Donovan. 9/28 and 1/10 from 3. Shot double the next most shots on the team.

Entertaining first half in Portland. Harden came to play and Gordon has been solid, but the rest of the Rockets team has been pretty lackluster. The Blazers' stars haven't been great tonight, either, though. If it wasn't for Aminu randomly going off in the first quarter for 16 points (no, that's not a typo), the Rockets would have a pretty healthy lead right now.

Give me one player you'd rather have over Anthony Davis right now? Dude is amazingly underrated.

I can't believe how excited I was when Joe Johnson signed with the Rockets. The guy has been complete and utter trash. Honestly, I don't really know why D'Antoni keeps giving him so many minutes. I'd much rather see Ryno or Green on the floor.

The Blazers played a pretty damn good game of basketball. Nurkic is a beast (and I can't say I'm entirely disappointed by his performance, as he's on my fantasy team). It's crazy that Lillard and McCollum were 9-32 and they still only lost by four, but the Rockets had a good defensive gameplan for them tonight. It was the Blazers' supporting cast that kept them in it.

Harden was just an absolutely monster tonight, though. And Paul played huge in the second half. I look forward to seeing this team against in a few weeks, and hopefully we'll meet up in the playoffs.

As good as that game was, Nate Robinson did his best to try and ruin it. I've always liked Nate, but my god is that guy horrible at color commentary. As soon as I saw this was going to be a players-only broadcast, and I saw him with a headset on, I was like "****!" Seriously, can we get Nate a job doing something else? ANYTHING else?

Can they send Harden his mvp trophy now before end of season?

gobert only put up 15/16 but he is trash when people try to argue that simmons is the 2nd option to embiid as a way to hurt simmons value.

Yeah, I honestly don't think there's anything anybody could do at this point to overtake Harden. Even if Davis put up some historic numbers over the last three weeks and New Orleans went on a run to grab the third seed, they'd still be probably 13-14 games behind the Rockets. And with this being probably the last really important, big nationally televised game for Houston for the rest of the season, I've got to think his performance tonight locked up the award.

The Rockets have some nationally televised games in April, but at that point, they'll probably be in rest mode and just waiting for the playoffs. The No. 1 seed is all but locked up.

Huge, fun game. Not sure what was up with Lilliard, but man, James Harden is unbelievable.

The TNT feed was blocked down here on the Island. I'll take Bull and Craig over Players Only anytime, though.

MBT is in the Houston area, so I was wondering how he got the TNT feed. I have Comcast so maybe he's on a different provider.

I have AT&T and TNT usually shows when the Rockets play. Only NBA TV blocks the game out, maybe itís a new procedure or something.

I am in Houston this week visiting and watched the game on TNT on xfinity

No idea how some got it and I didn't.

What's weird is that Xfinity has blocked out TNT or ESPN Rockets games about 3 times this year (one was the Marcus Smart flopping game at Boston). And I think a few NBA TV games, too. But it doesn't happen every time they're on national tv. It's a little weird. Now I'll just Dvr both feeds as I usually like getting a national perspective when I can get it (but with the players only thing, I'm glad I couldn't watch it).


What's also dumb about last night was even after the feed came back on, the audio never deactivated so I couldn't watch the post game stuff (but again, with the players only thing, I probably spared myself).

AD's 33 and 11 over the last 3 has NO looking like a threat in the West! Might be over for the Thunder in the 1st with no Boogie!
