NBA Update:

  • Griz look great at home, as they pull the Clippers back to the pack. #Clippers #Grizzlies
  • Left without chief comrade Wall, Wizards raise their collective game in Atlanta. Could this be the win that squarely sets them on the road to recovery? #Wizards #Hawks
  • Denver mines another road win, as Murray and Co. work together like a fine oiled machine. #Nuggets #Magic
  • LeBron turns it on, from both sides of the key and at the top of the arc … Spurs can only look in wonder at the majesty of the King of Hollywood….

NBA Update:

  • Decaying Spurs are now wishing their free fall is at least delayed; DeMar and LaMar are not going far enough to dispel the age old adage that the NBA is no country for old men. #Spurs #Jazz
  • Kings unleash the heavy artillery in the Valley of the Sun and hit Phoenix with the Buddy Hield stun gun. #Kings #Suns
  • Since when do the Mavs specialize in taking off like this at American Airlines arena. Since they’ve gotten the best they can get out of Wes. #TrailBlazers #Mavericks

  • Houston cries Wolf after looking completely flummoxed during a second half funk in Minneapolis. #Rockets #Timberwolves
  • Clips keep their unexpected grip on first by winning a fireworks display with the well armed Pelicans. #Clippers #Pelicans

NBA Update:

  • Apparently pouting since the game was played in the Pepsi, not Sprite, Center, LBJ bricks his way to 14 points on 33% shooting, and the Nugs negate the Lakers by 30+. Denver plays a true team game and has to be taken seriously in any discussion about Western powers; the same cannot be said about LAL. #Lakers #Nuggets
  • Timeworn Griz aren’t fleet enough to keep up with Raptors and VanVleet. #Raptors #Grizzles
  • For reasons that go beyond player name recognition and egos, the nondescript Pacers continue to run away from the competition. And this year, they don’t have to content with King James in the Eastern Conference. There’s definitely new life at Bankers Life. #Pacers #Suns

NBA Update:
  • Wizards outlast the Rockets, as Harden rings the register for 50+, but seems lose his concentration in a sloppy fourth. Yes, James, this is what can happen when your plate, not to mention your beard, is too full. #Rockets #Wizards
  • Celtics looked like the team that dominated the East last year, as they show no fear in felling the Pels. Great defense, excellent ball movement and sharp shooting were on display tonight for the men in green. #Celtics #Pelicans
  • Now it’s the Spurs turn to walk into the United Center and emasculate the shrinking Bulls. #Spurs #Bulls

NBA Update:

  • Miami looked rather tepid in going down meekly at Indiana, but what the Heat should take the most heat for are their sickening road unis … those hideous canary yellow shorts… ugh! #Heat #Pacers
  • T-wolves deliver another impressive win in the wake of Bulter’s departure; Minny looks absolutely giddy to be set free of Jimmy … #TrailBlazers #Timberwolves
  • Marc Gasol continues look born again, and Jaren Jackson shows the Kings that he has plenty of spring in his step. Griz assault the Kings in Memphis. #Kings #Grizzlies
  • Raptors can’t properly nurse a late game lead, and in OT things just get worse for the visitors; Celts win a very important game, getting a huge boost from a healthier, more vigorous Hayward, and a monster performance from Irving. #Raptors #Celtics

NBA Update:

  • Sweet Lou Williams was the essence of smooth tonight, stroking big buckets, playing good defense and staying cool, in the face of an intense 4th quarter struggle with the Spurs. As for the Spurs’ gamble on DeRozan, that’s not looking like such a great move right now. He’s not a proven leader, and tonight’s costly turnover in the closing seconds is a prime example. #Spurs #Clippers
  • Herculean effort by Hernangomez hoists Nuggets over the faltering Hawks. #Nuggets #Hawks
  • My how 1 week has changed things in the West. GSW’s in a state of mourning with Curry still grappling with the tender groin, while the Rockets, freed of their clubhouse cancer, are playing like they got a clean bill of health. #Warriors #Rockets

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
