NBA Update:

  • Overloaded Bulls can’t handle a touch too much of Jaylen and Kyrie. #Bulls #Celtics
  • This upset win by the very game Grizzlies was pretty much all Conley and Gasol. #Grizzlies #Bucks
  • Pistons all pumped up after Toronto’s big lead drops like a lead balloon. #Pistons #Raptors
  • Wizards couldn’t be more happy that Beal is playing with newfound zeal. #Cavaliers #Wizards
  • Lakers and James come up with possibly their best games of the year, in taking down trailing Trail Blazers. #Lakers #TrailBlazers

NBA Update:

  • Rockets maintain their domination over Denver, with Harden erupting the 2nd half; it also seemed to help that ex-Nugget Melo was nowhere to be found due to a very convenient “illness”. #Rockets #Nuggets
  • Kemba (2 for 16) and the rest of the Hornets look positively horrible in losing to what is left of the sprained Cavs. #Hornets #Cavaliers
  • Warriors muddle through a choppy win over the hardly intimidating Hawks … but in the NBA, a road win is always precious and valuable. #Warriors #Hawks

NBA Update:

  • Another ding for the previously feared Spurs, as they fall to a younger, faster and more athletic club of Kings. #Spurs #Kings
  • T-wolves chew through the Nets, looking emboldened by the departure of the unwanted Butler and the reappearance of the stabilizing leadership of Jeff Teague. #Nets #Timberwolves
  • Wizards continue their attempt to recover from a totally underwhelming start….with lots of help from usual suspects Wall and Beal, and some bombs dropped from beyond the arc by lean, mean Jeff Green. #Magic #Wizards
  • Giants regain their ability to rely on Eli, and nobody should be quick to dub Nick as the air apparent to Joe Montana. Even if you are an enemy of Big Blue, you must admit it’s about time the team was rewarded for remaining modestly competitive. #Giants #FortyNiners
  • OT victory for Clippers is another signal that the Warriors will have to work harder this year to maintain status as best in the West. Durant and Thompson get their points, but don’t do so with their usual efficiency. Meanwhile. Lou Williams and M. Harrell continue to impress in leadership roles. Great win for LAC. #Clippers #Warriors

NBA Update:

  • Denver dozes off to its detriment against the no-longer-to-be-taken-lightly Nets. #Nets #Nuggets
  • Celtics lose when they let Ingles run wilder than usual, on top of a haymaker of a performance from The Stifle Tower. #Celtics #Jazz
  • Sixers nix a valiant 4th quarter recovery by the Hornets. #Hornets #Sixers
  • Heat ultimately can’t compete with the clutch play of Bogdano and Oladipo. #Heat #Pacers

NBA Update:

  • More holes in the Warriors’ great wall of invincibility as conductor Curry goes down with a faulty abductor, and the Bucks go crazy in the paint (walloping the Dubs by 50). At this rate, we may see Kerr faint, and not from back fluid issues. #Bucks #Warriors
  • Boston found itself in a very dark place against the Suns, but scrambled to sunlight against the Suns behind a very hot Kyrie Irving. #Celtics #Suns
  • I’d like to give the Thunder some credit for holding the Rockets to 86 points (and doing this without RA), but let’s give criticism where criticism is due; what in god’s name were the Rockets doing out there tonight (11-43 on 3’s/that is a total abomination and simply shows a complete lack of planning and care in running their offense … shame on you D’Antoni…. pathetic… how could you guys trade for 1-11 Carmelo, let alone letting him continue to shoot). #Rockets #Thunder

NBA Update:

  • Sixers finally show up and grow up on the road, with Embiid feeding down low and Simmons dishing and dunking. #Sixers #Pacers
  • Dallas apparently can rebound, but they can’t dribble or shoot … and that’s a fatal flaw. #Mavericks #Jazz
  • Spurs get blindsided by a monster game on the inside by the talented and dangerous Hassan Whiteside. #Spurs #Heat
  • Nugget nirvana grinds to an abrupt halt at the Grindhouse. #Grizzlier #Nuggets
  • Compliant Cleveland opens up Thunder eyes to the fact that yes, life goes on without the one and only Westbrook. #Thunder #Cavaliers

NBA Update:

  • Bad matchup for the Bucks comes home to roost, as the super Blazer backcourt bloodies up Bledsoe and Brogdon (4-20… not good guys). #Bucks #TrailBlazers
  • Wizards need to get some Windex as they are having lots of trouble cleaning the glass. Their other problem is the very real struggles of one Bradley Beal (1-9 from 3 pt land is no way to go through life). #Wizards #Mavericks
  • Yet another another team socks it to the Hawks. There no shock and awe when it comes to facing Atlanta. #Hawks #Hornets

NBA Update:

  • Nuggets nuke the Celtics with a huge 2nd quarter run, led by a very hot Jamaal Murray, and strong contributions from Gary Harris and Trey Lyles. If you go 9-1 in your first ten games and your in the West, you are definitely for real, and this what Boston found out (the painful way) tonight. #Celtics #Nuggets
  • Harden’s back, and looking like he hardly missed a beat; Houston noses out the Pacers. #Rockets #Pacers
  • Another impressive home win for the Clippers, who don’t seem to care that they’ve lost more of the star appeal; as for the Wolves, their problems on the road are very much for real. #Timberwolves #Clippers

NBA Update:

  • The gradient of the learning curve is definitely challenging for the Rockets without being able to lean on Grady Harden; tonight, the formerly timid Rockets took a bold step in the right direction. #Rockets #Nets
  • Yes, there is still some hope for the ravaged Clippers, who pop their heads up above .500 with a big victory over fhe tragic Magic. Gallinari and Harris are solid players, and there’s always a chance Sweet Lou will have a pleasing game. #Clippers #Magic
  • Indiana continues to get nice contributions from Turner and Collison, which, along with an outstanding Oladipo, allows the Pacers to outlast the Bulls. #Pacers #Bulls
  • Wizards get torn asunder by the Thunder, who nearly shoot 50%. #Thunder #Wizards

NBA Update:

  • Celts survive a true inside job by the Bucks, going with a lock and load strategy from long range. And the rest of the Eastern Conference had better take heed — Hayward’s starting to heat up. #Bucks #Celtics
  • When it came to gobbling up points and boards tonight, Embiid was the picture of greed, to the delight of his Philly fanatics. #Clippers #Sixers
  • There was a Fox in the Hawk-house tonight, and he caused quite a disturbance; Sac’s youth movement is starting to bear some serious fruit. #Kings #Hawks
  • Hornets look like bystanders watching a brush fire as Westbrook burns out of control in a deadly 4th q comeback started by the Thunder. #Thunder #Hornets

NBA Update:
  • Knicks get 30+ points from their guard the Hardaway, but Pacers come out on top when they get a 30 pt bonus from Sabonis. #Pacers #Knicks
  • Emerging heavyweight contender Nuggets manage to successfully slug it out in Chicago, with Millsap snapping the winning jab. #Nuggets #Bulls
  • Word has it that Minny won tonight because Rose rose to the challenge while Butler got a sorely needed benching. Problem is … Butler will be back for more this Friday against GSW. #Jazz #Timberwolves
  • LeBron bails the Lakers out after their latest 4th quarter failure; when the pace slows, their confidence really goes.  #Lakers #Mavericks

NBA Update:

  • Happy Halloween!  Beverly shows up in a Clippers jersey and proceeds to get under Westy’s skin even worse than when he was working in Houston.  Very scary. #Thunder #Clippers
  • Cavs more than double down on double digit scorers in fingering the Hawks as their first victim this season. #Hawks #Cavaliers
  • Kings enter the Magic castle, and impose their reign of recent terror with relative impunity. #Kings #Magic
  • Gaining Carmelo and losing Boss Baller hog James Harden is what can only be termed a raw deal; Rockets continue to explode on the runway to cap off an October that has definitely been a downer in H-town. #Trailblazers #Rockets
  • Scrappy Detroit simply can’t up with Kyrie, who leads the C’s to an imporant gut check victory. #PIstons #Celtics
  • The Wiz are usually in deep trouble on nights like this, where Wall is careless with the ball (9 TOs) and Bradley is shooting badly (5-16). Meanwhile, the baby blue Griz are confident about a good harvest after an extensive trip through the wilderness. #Wizards #Grizzlies

NBA Update:

  • The Bucks have some serious chemistry; meanwhile, the arrival of Jimmie Butler is threatening to blow the lid off serenity and good feeling in Minnesota … and tonight’s 2-11 performance is not helping the cause. #Bucks #Timberworlves
  • Tres bien for Montrezl. #Clippers #Rockets

  • Knicks get drawn and quartered by Warriors in the 4th. #Warriors #Knicks
  • Kemba walks all over the Bulls. #Hornets #Bulls

NBA Update:

  • In a very well played, sharp affair, Denver looked in control until, once again, Lance cut in and started to dance.  Great games as well for McGee and a very under control, Lonzo Ball. #Lakers #Nuggets
  • Good omen for the Blazers as Damian erupts in the 2nd half to burn the Magic. #TrailBlazers #Magic
  • We’ve only just begun, and still no evidence of a Thunder clap. To the contrary, the Celts slap the home team around in OKC, despite horrid games from Jalen and Gordo. Someone needs to explain to Donovan that having your team leader go a ridiculous 12 for 42 just won’t get it done in the NBA. #Celtics #Thunder
  • One week into the season, the Cavs are clearly done — stick a sword into them! #Cavaliers #Pistons

NBA Update:

  • Nets are the latest opponent to have their way with the Cavs. The carnage is just getting started. #Nets #Cavaliers
  • In the Valley of the Sun. LeBron does a good job dishing, while Lance does the swishing. #Lakers #Suns
  • Bucks may well the team that sneaks up on people this year, and not the Sixers. Giannis antes up another huge pile of numbers for the scorecard, which leaves Embiid quite embittered. #Sixers #Bucks
