NBA Update:

  • Dad Chris Paul had some extra time on his hands tonight, so he took his little boy to Clippers’ remake of the movie “Blowout”. #Clippers #Lakers
  • The bright side to a night that sidelined its no. 1 ever boards supplier Whiteside is that the Heat now have the inside lane to the playoffs. #Suns #Heat
  • Another ginormous win for Giannis and his Bucks. #Trailblazers #Bucks
  • Down by one late in the game, the Spurs had the T-wolves right where they wanted them; they had the ability to go higher with Kawhi, while Minnesota didn’t even the ability to diagram a decent play. Tom T. knows D, but he needs to buy the vowel O. #Spurs #Timberwolves
  • Mavs continue to sag against the Warriors. #Warriors #Mavericks
  • One thing’s for sure, nobody mistook good boy Brook for bad boy Robin tonight. #Pistonswin
  • This game is only the latest in a procession of unusual concessions made by the less competitive Bulls. #Bulls #Raptors
  • Memphis blue bears hit with a hard 1-2 combo from Cousins and the rest of his Pelican relations, which leaves them decidedly black and blue. #Grizzlies #Pelicans

NBA Update:

  • Indiana inches closer to a playoff berth. #Jazz #Pacers
  • Warriors stir up a big fuss in OKC, and in the process put the clamps on Russ. #Warriors #Thunder
  • After being dominated by double digits late into the game, Orlando somehow lands on its feet. #Magic #Sixers
  • No doubt about it … Hawks really miss Horford and Teague. #Hawks #Hornets
  • Grady goes coast to coast, costing Denver a surprise win. #Nuggets #Rockets
  • Celtics pull out all the stops in stopping what has become the other up-and-comer in the East, the Wiz. #Wizards #Celtics

NBA Update:

  • Cleveland Slackers over LA Lakers when they decide to exert themselves just enough. Give LeBron and Kyrie tomorrow off, lest they be exhausted after an intense days’ work hoisting up shots. #Cavaliers #Lakers
  • Blazers are cooking in Miami after lots of death and destruction visited upon the Heat by killer Lillard. #TrailBlazers #Heat
  • It’s definitely too late to make a difference this year, but the Pelicans are laying the groundwork for great things to come thanks to their new can do attitude. #Pelicans #Timberwolves
  • As the Celtics find out, there’s no nixing the Sixers these days. #Celtics #Sixers
  • Dirk delivers, and there’s no Nets upset. #Mavericks #Nets
  • Spurs make Kings their pawns in a very routine victory. #Kings #Spurs

NBA Update, Recap and Perspectives: Saturday, 3-18 (Liberace version)

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

NBA Update:

Tonight in the NBA, we had everything but a fire in the orphanage, including —

  • Curry’s on the money very appropriately against the Bucks, but is this just a false positive result? #Warriors #Bucks
  • What’s going on with the Spurs; is there something in the closet we don’t know about? Do they think nobody is noticing this losing stuff?
  • Bulls keep stayin alive by reaching around for help from their understated bench.
  • Another case of Cleveland closing down shop a bit prematurely?
  • Portland rips into Atlanta something awful, and it isn’t even Rip City.
  • Thunder defrock the Kings and don’t even bother to thank Papa Georgios.

NBA Update:

  • Warriors take out their Thompson gun and shoot up the Magic, riddling them into submission with threes. #Magic #Warriors
  • Yes, the Clips were a bit “short-handed” tonight, without Blake and DeAndre, but so was Denver, and that’s no excuse for lazy rebounding and poor defense. #Clippers #Nuggets
  • Another feel good game in what has been a painful memory of a season for the Knicks. #Nets #Knicks
  • Sonic is coming out with a super 6-patty burger called the Russell triple-double. It’s being ordered up seemingly every night that the former Super Sonics play. #Thunder #Raptors
  • This game would seem to indicate that the Jazz are not ready to move on up to the Penthouse level. #Jazz #Cavaliers
  • Another example of an Atlanta team not being like a dollar, and good for 4 quarters…. #Hawks #Grizzlies

NBA Update:

  • Was Damian’s point explosion an omen of bad things to come for the Spurs? They’ll need better defense from their guards, and much more from Ginobli. #Spurs #Trailblazers
  • Jazz looked pretty snazzy tonight, that’s for sure!
  • A bit of head/face trauma is no tragedy for Dragic, and the Heat continue inexorable and improbable trek toward the top 8. #Heat #Pelicans
  • In a game that might have otherwise gone down as Dirk’s last stand, Mavericks muster up enough firepower to fluster the Wizards. #Wizards #Mavericks
  • Perhaps the Grizzlies have one more good run left this year, but today they just sauntered down that hill and @#$@@#$@’d all the Bulls. #Grizzlies #Bulls
  • Suddenly sweet Lou Williams gets some sweet payback against the listless Lakers. #Lakers #Rockets
  • I’m sold. The Celtics are for real, baby!
  • Hey there Georgie Boy, you’re the reason the Pacers were speeding down the road tonight so fancy free. #Hornets #Pacers

NBA Update:

  • Dubs nearly flub it up again … this time against the Sixer scrubs … but in the end a much anticipated Curry flurry saves the day. #Warriors #Sixers
  • In New Orleans, the Blazers go down in something much less than a blaze of glory, as McCollum is missing in action and Nurkic is a near no-show. #TrailBlazers #Pelicans
  • Knick pride rears its rarely seen head, and Pacers lose a valuable chance to create some space in the playoff picture. #Pacers #Knicks
  • Westy and orange whips up another triple double for everyone’s favorite whipping boys. #Thunder #Nets
  • Studious Cleveland seemed to have gone to school from the last meeting with the Pistons on March 9 and their shooters erupt like Mount Vesuvius. #Cavaliers #Pistons

NBA Update:

  • Jokic would be the first to admit it … the Laker defense … what a total joke. Are you serious if you tell me that the son of Bill Walton can’t do better than this? #Lakers #Nuggets
  • Heartless Utah uglies the mood of the fragile Clippers, relying largely on their capitalizing pig of a producer Gordo the Gecko Hayward. #Jazz #Clippers
  • Towns completely went to town, Rubio really rubbed salt in their wounds, but don’t forget the relatively devastating blows delivered by manly Nemanja. #Wizards #Timberwolves
  • Are the Spurs kind of like the New England Patriots of basketball? Guys like Danny Green, and perhaps more surprisingly, David Lee, find their role and work their parts in Gregg’s grand scheme with increasing precision. #Spurs #Hawks
  • Mavs minus Matthews is not a pretty sight. #Mavericks #Raptors
  • It’s about time Fred stopped farting around and let the guard with the big hands and the short attention span give the blase Bulls a hand. #Bulls #Hornets
  • Vincesane result as it takes a grizzled old veteran like Carter to wake the Grizzlies up against the young Bucks. #Bucks #Grizzlies
  • Until tonight, it appeared clear that the Kings were worse without Cousins, than the Pelicans were better with him. Collison and Tolliver are trying to change that impression. #Magic #Kings

NBA Update:

  • From a draft pick standpoint, Sixers shoot themselves in the foot against el stinko Lakers. #Sixers #Lakers
  • Nice win for Indiana, as General George steps in to extinguish Heat advance. #Heat #Pacers
  • Barroom brawl at Barclays goes the way of the left for dead Nets. Knicks seal their doom with a crappy effort on the boards … so what else is new for the New Yorkers. #Knicks #Nets
  • More evidence that Cleveland may not be able to flip the switch this year; Harden comes up with a triple double, and LeBron is left to struts his stuff in vain. Simply put, the Cavs supporting cast continues to come up just a little bit short. #Cavalies #Rockets

NBA Update:

  • For those who paid for this game, it was quite a sham the way the Warriors gave this one away so shamelessly. This debacle will come back to haunt them, come playoff time.  At least the Spurs didn’t have any trouble manning up, with Manu and plenty more. #Warriors #Spurs
  • Circling Hawks drive embattled Grizz to the edge of relevance. #Hawks #Grizzlies
  • Lately, the obstinate Bucks have really lived up to their name … always being good for four quarters. #Timberwolves #Bucks
  • Playoffs nearly within reach in South Beach … an amazing recovery led by Dion the wanderer. #Raptors #Heat
  • Tobias is starting to spell serious trouble for Piston opponents. #Knicks #Pistons
  • Relieved Clippers must surely have some wounded pride, after letting the Sixers hang with them stride for stride for most of the ride. #Sixers #Clippers
  • Westbrook orchestrates another masterpiece against the bedazzled Jazz. #Jazz #Thunder
  • AD stood for authoritarian dunks in tonight’s conquest of Charlotte. #Pelicans #Hornets
  • Wall of fame stands solid in huge OT win at Portland; this Wizard team has more than characters… it has character. #Wizards #Trailblazers

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

NBA Update:

  • Chicago gets afflicted with a nasty case of Mad Cow disease and gets hanged, drawn and quartered in the third. #Rockets #Bulls
  • Is it panic time in GSW, as Curry is starting look less like the ice cold three point killer, and more like a poor man’s James Harden? There’s lately been a look of desperation for the Dubs, who don’t tend to fare so well when Steph’s missed to make ratio (10-27 tonight) starts to swell. #Warriors #Timberwolves
  • Things with the Mavs have come together great, but doesn’t Cuban fear that this year may just end up being a classic case of too little, too late. #Nets #Mavericks
  • Toronto continues to be Toribly inconsistent and Toribly boring to watch as well. #Raptors #Hawks
  • Back up the moving truck for the Bucks…. because with this huge amount of young talent, they’re movin on up…#Pacers #Bucks
  • Celts needed more than a few snarfs of oxygen, looking all fagged out in the high altitudes of Denver and coming off their very emotional win the night before. #Celtics #Nuggets
  • No comment warranted or possible in this contest between Eastern Conference plebeians. #Magic #Hornets

NBA Update:

  • The plumb stupid trade by Denver of Nurkic for Plumlee is reaping impressive dividends for the Blazers. #Sixers #Trailblazers
  • Russel’s hustle stakes the Lakers to a huge lead that even they can’t waste. #Lakers #Suns
  • Remarkable loss for the Cavs, who aren’t used to coming up on the short end of the stick when LeBron goes off for a sexy triple double. But the sad fact is for Cleveland that LeBron didn’t get any help on the inside from TT, and JR had one of his worst games in recent memory (1-8 from three point land, ughhh). #Cavaliers #Pistons
  • Rivers finds a cavity in the long-in-the-tooth Memphis defense, and Clippers probe it for all it’s worth. #Clippers #Grizzlies
  • Kawhi gets hit high, and Spurs get high out to dry by the inspireds Thunder. #Spurs #Thunder

NBA Update:
  • Boston pegs the self-satisfied Warriors to the town stockade, and spends most of the critical fourth celebrating the GSW turnover brigade. #Celtics #Warriors
  • Don’t look now, but the Bucks have put on their blinders and are off to the playoff races. #Knicks #Bucks
  • All’s not well in Clipper land, as Doc’s demoralized dudes go down in flames in the land of 10,000 lakes. #Clippers #Timberwolves
  • Waiters serves up another late night special for the streaking Heat. #Hornets #Heat
  • Give New Jersey credit for a nice effort, however unrequited in Atlanta tonight. #Hawks #Nets
  • Payton’s no longer a word that evokes sweet music in the ear of Chicago sports fan, at least those following basketball and the exploits of Elfrid. #Bulls #Magic
  • Today’s Utah over Houston might be most appropriately seen as substance over sizzle, as Utah plays disciplined ball and good d, while Harden shoots lots of heavy hard ones and the Rockets go a noxious 8 for 32 for threes. #Jazz #Rockets

  • Bogan’s hot, hot shooting keeps the Wiz from getting bogged down in the desert. #Wizards #Suns
  • In what has been a hall of fame career, Dirk puts in another night of memorable work, and Mavericks stick it to the pin cushion Laker defense. #Lakers #Mavericks
  • Sometimes 58 just ain’t that great. #Thunder #Trailblazers

NBA Update:

  • For his opening act as a Cavalier, management told Bogut to go out and break a leg; unfortunately, he took them literally. In the game, Cleveland waits around for things to happen, while the Heat have rarely seen a greater Waiters.
  • Celtics run out of currency at Staples. #Celtics #Clippers
  • Warriors pick up a shaky victory by using Iggy to wiggle out of a sticky situation in Atlanta. #Warriors #Hawks
  • Spurs continue to display that little, extra je ne sais quoi when they play against the Rockets. #Rockets #Spurs
  • This Linsane result really isn’t so hard to explain … Memphis is looking pretty old and tired these days. #Grizzlies #Nets
  • Knicks make Magic look out of sorts on the court with big contribution from Courtney. #Knicks #Magic
