Irish eyes in Boston aren’t smiling the day after St. Patty’s Day

NBA Update:

  • Denver wears out the Celtics, who looked totally flat after apparently overdoing it with St. Patty’s Day festivities in the South End. Boston fan better hope this stale loss was a necessary cleansing. #Nuggets #Celtics
  • Thunder clap just wasn’t there tonight, with RA on layaway. As the the Heat, nice to see a team that is not packing it in for draft choices. #Heat #Thunder
  • Dubs flub it up once again (that makes 3 in a row), while Spurs continue to climb the Western Conf ladder. Could it be that Boogey man is not the answer on the inside for the defending champs? As for SA, it looks like a return to the winning formula of moving the ball, tough defense, along with big doses of LaMar and DeMar. #Warriors #Spurs

Knicks all pumped up about Super Mario …

NBA Update:

  • LeBron lovers’ mouths left agape, as the King’s last gasp jumper is stuffed by Super Mario Hezonja. #Lakers #Knicks
  • Embiid and the Sixers hope memories of today’s defeat are embedded in the Milwaukee mindset. #Sixers #Bucks
  • Happy ending for Sweet Lou and the almost tripping Clippers. #Nets #Clippers
  • Little Caesars has become quite a trap for the Raptors; something to think about in Toronto. #Pistons #Raptors

DeRozan’s finally learning how to Spur with love …

NBA Update:

  • It took a while, but DeRozan’s finally learning how to Spur with love. #TrailBlazers #Spurs
  • Here’s an injury that could factor in to the playoff story that unfolds in the East. Brogdon’s having a good year, and Tony Snell will need to step up in a serious way. #Bucks
  • Now it’s Millsap’s turn to play hero at Pepsi Center. #Nuggets #Pacers

NBA Update, Recap and Perspectives: Thursday, 3-14-19 (plus, a very big quote from Deuce Bigelow)


NBA Update:

  • They’re calling from the far reaches of the Rockies “NIKOLA, NIKOLA” … jolt of Jokic carries Denver past a very game Dokic and his Dallas Mavs. #Nuggets #Mavericks
  • Sac may be a team of the future story in the West, but in the East the sleeping giants are the Men in Green. Boston’s finding its groove at just the right time. #Kings #Celtics
  • Let’s face it … the Lakers are running out of time … and excuses. This is a 2nd rate team, with an aging superstar. ‘Nuff said. Yes, you will see LBJ on TV on TNT come May. #Lakers #Raptors
  • Indiana’s well-balanced, team concept prevails over the top-heavy Thunder; poor Paul George, who was just too high strung in the last couple of minutes to bear the pressure of returning home to his old stomping grounds. #Thunder #Pacers

Gobert had a view to a kill tonight in Phoenix

NBA Update:

  • Gobert certainly had a view to a kill as Utah authoritatively imposes its will on Phoenix. #Suns #Jazz
  • Bad loss for the Rockets, as Cousins looks like the pseudo superstar of days gone by and the opposition can’t take advantage of the vacancy left by a sidelined Durant. #Warriors #Rockets
  • Boiling hot Westbrook brings OKC back from the dead in a rousing home win over the upstart Nets. #Nets #Thunder

Ballin with bald Ballmer

NBA Update:

  • Celtics get maimed by a serious Lou Williams splinter offa the Clips’ bench. Oh the pain, and score one for LA. #Celtics #Clippers
  • Dennis proves to be quite a menace coming off the bench, while Jazz reserves accomplish next to nothing. Nothing doing for the Jazz. #Jazz #Thunder
  • Is this a misprint? Sexy game from Sexton, not to mention Love, moves Cavs past the Raptors. #Raptors #Cavaliers

This Booker is one good looker…

NBA Update:

  • Marvelous games all around for both LaMar and DeMar; the ghosts of past glory were certainly causing a disturbane in SA. Could this be the formula for controlling the Bucks going forward? After an extended period of indifference, the Spurs are displaying a serious attitude and the rest of the league is taking notice. #Bucks #Spurs
  • Great win today for the Rockets; this one showed character, even if it was against the middling Mavs. This team is building the foundation for a serious run. #Rockets #Mavericks
  • North of the border, Canada’s regular season wonders dissipate the incredibly stale Heat. #Raptors #Heat
  • Stunned Warriors die of Suns exposure, when they dare to look into the eyes of quite a Booker. It’s Devin over Kevin, as the Durantula sticks his big pink foot into the wrong crevice. #Suns #Warriors

Durant likes sinking ’em in pink…

NBA Update:

  • Blue collar Detroit digs deep and gets dirt behind bad boy Blake and a hyper-aggressive Andre D on the glass. #Pistons #Bulls
  • GSW has its way with a very dejected Denver; no way around the bad match ups that redound in favor of the defending champs. #Warriors #Nuggets
  • Sixers need to really work on their core; things in the middle are pretty flabby, what with A. Johnson residing there and Joel E. absent with leave. #Sixers #Rockets

Russell wears his emotions on his sleeve, and wears his opponents down to the nub.

NBA Update:

  • Portland wilts in Rip City to the very ripped, and never without a bellicose quip, Russell. Same old good, but not great, Blazers. #TrailBlazers #Thunder
  • Pacers travel up the road to ‘Ol Milwaukee to face the Bucks and exhibit the dreaded deer in headlights look in a rather dreary second half siesta. #Pacers #Bucks

Many think that this year, the West will be won by Denver’s young guns…

NBA Update:

  • Old guys rule may rule the record book, but you’re nowhere in the NBA without young guns … advantage Nugs. #Lakers #Nuggets
  • If you’re Celtics fan, no need to pray with Hayward leading the way, and no stay of execution for the victimized Kings. #Celtics #Kings
  • Heard it through the grapevine — Sixers lacked the magic elixir to stop LaVine. #Sixers #Bulls

No jockeying around for the hapless horses…

NBA Update:

  • Jokic sees to it that the hapless horses have no mislaced hopes about jockeying for playoff positioning. #Nuggets #Mavericks
  • Spurs fall hard at Air Canada when DeMar doesn’t go far enough in evading Leonhard. #Spurs #Raptors
  • Mark my words! Markannen and the Bulls get a road win. #Bulls #Magic
  • Indiana’s apparently indifferent to injury. Pacers emerge victorious even without Victor. #Pelicans #Pacers

I’ll go with Bagley III at No. V

NBA Update:

  • This outcome says more about the Kings than it does about the Warriors. Bagley III has rapidly emerged as a major player from the V. #Kings #Warriors
  • Rocky road for the Rockets, when LBJ goes inside and has his way. #Rockets #Lakers
  • Sixers escape the Heat with some fancy bobbing and waving from sometime marginal Boban Marjanovic. #Heat #Sixers
  • Bucks up the ante in the East with a strong stiff arm of the onrushing Celts. #Bucks #Celtics

The Dean of basketball admits: “Playing for the Lakers, ain’t that a kick in the head”

NBA Update:

  • Young, Trae holds sway over James, LeBron. #Lakers #Hawks
  • Down in the 4th … no worry, when you have Durant and Curry. #Jazz #Warriors
  • Things are really starting to smell in the land of the Pels. #Magic #Pelicans
  • Celts show up en masse and still know how to turn on the gas as they outlast frustrated Philly. #Celtics #Sixers

You’re never too high and mighty to double dribble.

NBA Update:

  • Heat should be all over the officials after Miami gets mistreated in The Town; yes, even big important stars like Durant occasionally look spastic and use two hands. #Heat #Warriors
  • Lakers and LeBron just can’t compete with Embiid point scoring greed; baby triple double by LBJ doesn’t stand in the way of Joel’s very telling 37, 14 and 14. #Sixers #Lakers
  • Dallas learns how to dig deep with Doncic, not Dirk. #TrailBlazers #Mavericks
