Batum got some MJ calls out there - it was ridiculous.

That said, Russ did throw the ball at a ref's head! It looked accidental, but that wasn't ideal for winning favour with them!

Also, we can't shoot. Haven't been able to shoot all season. 29th in the league in 3P%.

At least Steve is ballin...

I watched the game too. I agree with all of this.

OKC have got to trade Roberson, surely?

Did it mess up your bet? I was pissed off too. A 19-0 run to tie it up, subbed the incorrigible Cousins and Barnes in and it was a shit show thereafter. Thats the kind of game the Kings need to win if they want that 8th seed come April.

I reckon 8th will be between the Blazers and Pelicans in the long run. The spot's currently well below .500

Since their injury plagued 0-8 start, the Pels are a .500 team (14-14) with Holiday and Tyreke back. They're starting to get production out of Buddy Buckets (rookie of the month) and the acquisition of Motiejunas is potentially a big upgrade over Asik/Ajinca

When the Blazers get Lillard back they should get back to .500

The Blazers should get that spot. Funnily enough, I think the Blazers would be a great trade destination for either Anthony Davis or Demarcus Cousins. The Blazers have good perimeter players without a dominant player inside, the Kings and Pelicans are the complete opposite.

This makes it so painful to see Eric Gordon now fully healthy and leading the league in 3s for the Rockets (along with Ryno)

Where the hell was Derrick Rose today? For a guy who will get paid $20M (US) by the Knicks this year, you would think he could make a courtesy call to the coach / team management informing them why he won't be at the game today.

I swear I just saw Steven Adams recover a loose ball on the floor and place it as if under a ruck. It was awesome. I can only assume instinct kicked in.

Damn, I would probably have made the same picks. Though I still think the Sixers & T-Wolves aren't as shit as their record suggests.

Speaking of the Sixers, I've noticed that Saric has been productive...I remember seeing him in the Olympics and thinking that he could be handy.

How good would a present-day Yugoslav team be? At least as good as the Spanish I would think...

PG: Dragic, Udrih
SG: Bogdanovic, Vujacic
SF: Hezonja
PF: Saric, Teletovic, Mirotic, Bjelica
C: Vucevic, Jokic, Nurkic

Post subject:  Re: NBA season 2016/17

Betting on the Bulls is a risky business - especially when my boy, Paul Zipser, is starting for them!

Rockets getting hurt by injury/illness a little now. They were overdue some bad luck.

Speaking of bad luck, the Clippers have lost Paul for 6-8 weeks! He tore a ligament in his left thumb, all thanks to Westbrook's firm booty...


Warriors at -13 tomorrow looks like easy money. Even if the Thunder had a 20 point start, I wouldn't feel confident...

No Adams again. :(

You think OKC, and Russ, didn't play for him? :?

He's the greatest scorer of his generation, and he's playing with 3 other All-Stars.

Easy work.

Can't blame him really.

I was right about not backing OKC even at +20...

The boys tried hard, they are just not on the same stratosphere talent wise.
