    The Rockets lose to the Nuggets. Is anybody else surprised by the Rockets' start? I'm not a DHoward fan at all, but i am surprised that the Rockets are struggling this hard without him.

    I'm a little surprised. Especially as they did so well without him last year.

    The funny thing is Lebron is 2-4 in the finals. Pretty bad for someone that's unguardable.
    Yep. And that easily could have been 1-5.

    Sigh. Back to therapy...

    True, I still thought they would be better than they are without JSmoove and DHoward. They have some players (not Harden) that I like.

    Also, remember those poor delusional Lakers fans saying they would make the playoffs? Playoffs?!?! PLAYOFFS?!?!?!

    Knicks fans, on the other hand actually may have a decent team. Porzingis is good already, and his ceiling is outa sight.

    Couldn't agree more. Have never felt prouder of a team anywhere for any reason in all my life. If there is sixth, (hope), I still don't believe it can be sweeter than the fifth.

    Chris Paul was giving the Spurs headache against the Clippers and we pretty much have the same team perimeter-wise. Warriors could be trouble. The circus shots that Curry is capable of are just incredible. He does have to take care not to turn the ball over. I see him coming through a lot of screens against us.
    Agree. The Clippers were setting double high screens for Paul in the series and the Spurs couldn't solve that. I can see Curry running off multiple screens, two, three screens in a row, which are very hard for a defender to get through, trying to exhaust anyone who guards him...Anaway, if we're gonna switch to defend screens I just hope a better job than the last play in Washington.

    We are very vulnerable to those kind of plays. I love Kawhi, but with his current size and strength, he's vulnerable to getting caught on screens. Danny is faster, but he has started the season off. He has shown to be vulnerable to getting punked by shooters that like to run through screens as well. Just watch Belinelli in the SAC game, Beal in Wiz. They got the shots they wanted, and Marco drew fouls easily on Danny.

    The multiple screens are very hard to defend without help, the big has to show to allow Danny or Kawhi to recover to the play. In cases of dangerous shooters, the big probably has to contest the shot w/o fouling, and true bigs are not good at that.

    Besides, if the shooter is a good passer, it opens up a whole lot of options in the paint once he gets a switch with the big. He can get into a PnR, or get into the paint or draw a foul.

    Spurs are really vulnerable to this kind of play. You are right, we never solved Chris Paul, and Curry is a much better shooter.

    Speaking of screens, Parker and Mills are both horrible at defending them. Pop will be forced to put Danny or Kawhi on Curry full-time if the two teams meet in the playoffs.

    Warriors trailing BKN by 15 after one quarter. Take that as you want. Most probably by the end of the third, GSW will be winning by 15, 30 points swing.

    And again tonight vs DAL. 12 point loss. T.Jones beasted for the 2nd straight game but other than that they looking pretty bad.

    I will keep an eye on that game on league pass.
    Another interesting game to follow, CLE vs MIL. Playing a 2nd Over Time.

    I haven't watched them this year, just going by box scores. I really like TJones, but he hasn't gotten much love in Houston. Be interesting to see how the guys on this team react if this continues.

    Wars downs 6 now. Damn its 7 am, I want to go to bed.

    But it looks like the Nets size gives the Dubs some trouble. I think we'll match up with them well.

    I agree. BKN's size definitely doing some damage. They're dominating the rebounds. Also Steph looks a little tired.
