By then the defender arrives and gets in his face and Deng misses the shot. Had Deng taken the easy layup, the score would have become 82-87, which would have made Noah's FT attempts later in the game a game tying attempt, making the score 91-91 without the need to foul. Now I know one decision doesn't make a game, but 10 hours later it still sticks out to me.

It's whatever though. The team just needs to stay in the middle of the pack in the east until Rose gets back.
what's Rose's timetable? Both he and Shump tore their ACL's but SHump also tore his meniscus and he's coming back in Feb.

He'll probably tear my MAVS apart but that news pleases me greatly.

Is Dwight Howard not a liability down the stretch?

So you ENLIGHTEN me, what have I said that is wrong?


Anyway in some lighter news, RUBIO is expected to make his return on Saturday against the Mavs
Old, yes. Injury prone? Hardly. Aside from Nash, the rest of our team isn't exactly injury prone and hardly ever gets injured.

Mike has made our bench better, at least scoring wise, so they're not as terrible as they were before. They're able to score and actually contribute now. Most of them are still awful at defense, but they can keep a game managed.

We have Chris Duhon and Morris going out there. Fuck off again. I'll judge a healthy team when it comes to that because we haven't been one yet.

He is, but his mistakes can be covered up once Dwight returns to form, it's not like they haven't been in the past. Jameer was hardly a world class defender.

Is Pau not talented and smart enough to regain form? He was also playing injured, which was dumb but the truth.

No he isn't. that's an absurd statement considering how many bad coaches there have been in the past. His type of offense has always made it so teams will score a lot on him as well due to the pace of the game.

Once again no. Stop overreacting.


Yes he is, but I believe Howard can reach a point in which he can hit them down the stretch like Shaq learned to do.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - SPREAD ON A LITTLE MAYO

Best case scenario: Returns before the All-Star break.
Worst case scenario: Misses the whole season.
Likely scenario: Returns after the All-Star break.

@Magic: Nash was a product of the Phoenix medical staff, he will continue to have injury problems throughout the year.

Nash is probably worse than both Duhon & Morris at defending PG's. Did you watch Steve Nash in Phoenix? Hell, have you watched Steve Nash in his career? Nash has a legit argument as the worst defensive starting PG in the NBA. Yeah Jameer Nelson wasn't an elite defender but he's still better than Nash. If Dwight is having trouble covering for the mistakes of Duhon & Morris, what makes you think he'll be able to do it for Nash? You know a guy that's just as bad, if not worse than them at defense?

Pau is talented and smart, but the only time he's looked good on the court in the year 2012 was during the Olympics. The guy's confidence is gone and he's shown no signs that he'll dramatically turn this season around and return to his old self.

D'Antoni is an absolutely awful defensive coach, there's really no way I can see someone logically defend D'Antoni's defensive coaching. There's just no way, he's one of the worst. D'Antoni is a terrible coach. That's why the Suns never won anything with him, that's why he was failing in New York and that's why he'll fail in LA.

I'm enjoying the Lakers being pure horse shit. I really hope they can maintain their current form; it's what's best for the NBA.

I agree with you 100% but to be fair, Mike D'Antoni is still a better coach than Mike Brown!

I like that just because you're a Lakers fan you some how think that invalidates the opinion of anyone else. Get over yourself.

Brown is a better defensive coach than D'Antoni, but overall yeah Pringles is better than Brown. That's not saying much though because Brown is an assistant coach that got overrated due to how great LeBron was in Cleveland.

Good lord. Even when they're freaking losing I still hear about the Lakers. Their time is over. It's all about the Heat, Thunder, Grizzlies, Spurs, Clippers & Knicks now. Teams that are actually going places this season.

It's like if the Celts are shitty, you'll still hear about them because of the team's history and their importance to the game. Doesn't make it any less annoying, though. I have to admit it is kinda fun to watch the train wreck that is the Lakers this season.

btw, where in SD are you located?
