NBA Update:

  • Heat don’t have the feet, or inches, to compete with long, tall Milwaukee. #Bucks #Heat
  • Hawks shock the Thunder, whose big blunder was thinking they could just show up and win. #Thunder #Hawks
  • Dubs crush the Nuggets, raising the question as to whether they’ve just been playing possum with their 14 losses. #Warriors #Nuggets

Clippers get buried in the Mile High City

NBA Update:

  • Clippers get buried in the Mile High City, getting outplayed in every which way. #Clippers #Nuggets
  • Celtics came to South Beach feeling pretty cool, but couldn’t beat the heat; Wading into shark invested waters can do that to you. #Celtics #Heat
  • Aldridge is all powerful in marathon win over Thunder. #Spurs #Thunder

Giannis steps, not baby ones, are propelling the Bucks to the top of the NBA food chain.

NBA Update:

  • Bucks ride a huge 3rd quarter to an important, statement win over the Rockets; inside dominance has given them to an inside track to a pole position in the playoffs. #Bucks #Rockets
  • Poor Iindy was just too winded after having played the night before, and can’t come close to keeping up with the sensational Celtics. #Pacers #Celtics
  • Sub-par game for Spurs, who get subjugated by the previously subdued Grizzlies. #Spurs #Grizzlies

Sweet Lou has become a staple contributor at Staples

NBA Update:

  • Clippers nail the Hornets to the wall at Staples with what has been become rather habitual solid play from the quartet of Williams, Harrell, Harris and Gallinari. #Hornets #Clippers
  • Streaking Raptors surge past Raptors with lots of help from Serge. #Hawks #Raptors
  • Jokic was deft and clutch in Miami as the Nuggets beat the Heat. Denver stays on a roll, doing a great job in the paint and on the boards. #Nuggets #Heat
  • T-Wolves looked very mean and hungry tonight in OKC, as Wiggins figures heavily in an upset win with a fantastic 40. #Timberwolves #Thunder

Geritol for the Griz and Gasol?

NBA Update:

  • Things continue to get better for the Nets, while the Griz and Gasol may need to get their hands on some Geritol, good and fast. #Nets #Grizzlies
  • Without much fanfare, the Pacers are taking their place among the Eastern Conference elite … but does this impressive run really have feet? #Pacers #Bulls
  • Hawks were clearly out of luck when they drew the radically improved Bucks on their dance card. Today’s social event was a very pleasant tuneup for the showdown tomorrow with Toronto. #Hawks #Bucks
  • Celtics thank Dirk for a long career of exemplary work, then proceed to routinely dismantle Dallas. #Mavericks #Celtics

Lakers crater when Thunder come rumbling into Tinsel Town

NBA Update:

  • Without LeBron to lean on, backbone challenged Lakers show some spunk for 3 quarters, but end up getting punked by Paul George and OKC. Maybe being obnoxious to the game’s leading scorer wasn’t such a good idea, was it? #Lakers #Thunder
  • Griffin continues to be a spark plug for the blue collar Pistons, who come away with a big victory in the Grindhouse. #Pistons #Grizzlies
  • C’s explode for thirty something assists and have their best shooting night of the season, but the real cause for mirth in the the TD Garden is the return to form of Gordo, who goes for 35 on 80% from the field. Timberwolves #Celtics
  • AD’s back, but all’s not well for the Pels … and as regards the criticism, it’s high time they got defensive about it. Giving up 126 to the Nets is about as bad as it gets. #Pelicans #Nets
  • Wizards find a nice whipping boy in the timid Hawks … what a shock! #Hawks #Wizards

Seth gets the best of Steph

NBA Update:

  • Seth upstages Steph as Blazers out-do Dubs in OT. #Blazers #Warriors
  • Houston plays one of its best games of the year, shooting nearly 50% and savaging the C’s on the boards. They look like they’re on track, even without Chris Paul, to taking back a leadership position in the Western Conference. #Celtics #Rockets
  • Bucks are licking their chops after a delicious back to back double dose of picnics with the Knicks. #Knicks #Bucks
  • Bogdan Squared squares up and nails a three that sends the Lakers reeling. #Lakers #Kings

NBA Update:
— Jazz pleased as punch after Ricky Rubio runs circles around leader Lillard. #Jazz #TrailBlazers
— Buddy and his pal De’Aaron team up to trap the Griz. #Grizzlies #Kings
— Have the Spurs found a tall fortune in Forbes? #Spurs #Timberwolves
— A strong gravitational pull has definitely set it, dragging the sick Knicks down to the cellar of the Atlantic. First an embarrassing loss to Phoenix, and now this…#Hawks #Knicks
— Celtics are definitely not good enough to dog it at home against a good team and come out on top … even when that team commits an amazing 4 times as many turnovers. This was a sobering loss. #Celtics #Bucks

NBA Update:

  • He can’t really run, he can’t really jump, but he’s got great court awareness, basketball instincts, touch, finesse and knows the fundamentals for playing his position inside (and out); that’s why Jokic is no joke, and you’ve got to love the way he competes. Denver wins, as expected over the mediocre Mavs, on a night when weak sisters Cleveland, Atlanta and Brooklyn pulled upsets. Nice job, Nikola! #Mavericks #Nuggets

NBA Update:

  • RA made some scary faces when jostling with Murray for jump ball positioning, but when it came to asserting himself tonight in Denver he was strangely placid (yes, 5-15 just won’t cut it).  And how about those naive Nuggets.  They don’t know any better, and things haven’t been so promising in the Mile High City when it comes to basketball since 1984 and Alex English, T.R. Dunn, Calvin Natt, Fat Lever, Danny Schayes, and the rest of The Lunch Bucket Brigade. #Thunder #Nuggets
  • You can point to shoddy point guard play as the Raptors’ undoing in the Pacific Northwest. #Trailblazers #Raptors
  • Dubs survive a protracted 4th quarter flub and hold off the up and coming Kings. #Warriors #Kings
  • Nets are lately patting themselves on the back for hiring a Spencer who’s nothing short of on fire. #Wizards #Nets
  • Embiid gets his numbers … and then some … but who really cares when the other guys are the ones who play like a well-oiled machine, with the disparate parts working together in harmony; the box score showing nearly twice as many assists for the Pacers says it all. #Pacers #Sixers
  • C’s play hide and seek with the ball to relative perfection in burying the horrible Hawks at the Gahden. #Hawks #Celtics

NBA Update:

  • Clips continue to slip with a very weak showing in Riverwalk town. As for the Spurs, they show there is indeed a little life left in those mature legs. #Clippers #Spurs
  • Rockets rock LeBron’s world with a physical win at the Toyota Center, serving notice that they may have finally righted their ship. Yes, they’re still under .500, but they look ready for upward trajectory. And how about that out of this world shirt sported by the Beard post game. #Lakers #Rockets
  • Phoenix finally rises to the occasion with a rousing 10-pt throttling of the horses from Dallas. #Mavericks #Suns

NBA Update:

  • Pels ride a heavy swell of points by big man AD to quell the Thunder. #Thunder #Pelicans
  • Indy’s not getting much attention, but they are doing all blue collar, dirty work necessary to get results on the court, exemplified by the diligent efforts of shot blocker and dogged defender Thaddeus Young. #Bucks #Pacers
  • Kyrie is starting to heat up, and that’s more than enough to propel Boston to its 7th straight W, in a tightly contested game with Wall and Washington. #Celtics #Wizards
  • Warriors didn’t go to war like this too many times during their recent championship years, getting thrashed on the boards, shooting under 25% from three point land, and showing some serious negligence in their care for the basketball (17 TOs); as for the Raptors, pretty impressive stuff tonight from Lowry and all without leader Leonard

NBA Update:

  • These days, nobody gets burned flying high and too close to the Suns. 4-24~ oy vey! #Suns #Spurs
  • It’s a bit early for the NBA’s feel good story of the year, the LA Clippers, to start patting themselves on the back. I you were to pat them down before the game tonight, you’d probably find no ammo, as their big guns did not show up for this fight. #Raptors #Clippers
  • Did Houston play really well, or did the Blazers just flame out on the road? Whatever the case, the Rockets will take the successful change of pace. #TrailBlazers #Rockets

NBA Update:

  • KD looked removed from the action, but the Dubs had plenty of gorgeous guard play to make up for it against the bumbling Bucks. #Warriors #Bucks
  • Detroit’s fourth quarter lapse let the Sixers rest Embiid, with no adverse consequences; great game from an apparently happy Jimmy Butler. #Sixers #Pistons
  • DeRozan throws in 36 and Spurs get even with Lakers at AT&T. #Lakers #Spurs
  • Buddy and Bagley help Sac make Cavs their sacrificial lambs. #Kings #Cavaliers

NBA Update:

  • Jazz polish off the disorganized Rockets, who look out of sync on offense and more than a step slow on D; Houston’s certainly showing a penchant for losing the ball, and a large part of the blame lands squarely on floor general Chris Paul. #Rockets #Jazz
  • From a Layman’s point of view, Jake really lit up the Suns tonight. #Suns #Trailblazers
  • Boston appears to finally be moving in the right direction, while the Knicks have apparently hit the skids. A big reason is the reappearance of Al, Jaylen and Jayson as forces to be reckoned with, and an aggressive and mostly healthy Kyree. #Knicks #Celtics
