Didn't wish anything on anyone, but let's face it... Randolph is a f*cking dirty bastard, and if anyone on that team deserves to get hurt, it's him.

I'm getting a kick out of the T Wolves and Grizzlies being .500 right now! Very Happy

Man Knicks fans are so obnoxious. They were talking about how they would trade Melo for BG since the Knicks are doing poorly so they want to rebuild. I told them it would never happen and boy did they get annoyed. Expected outcome since I know how a lot of Knicks fans are but really the Knicks fan base is embarrassing sometimes. Almost as bad as the Lakers fan base.

I'm sure they would trade Melo for BG, too bad for them Clippers would NEVER do that.

Melo can't even lead his team to a .500 record now, how's he gonna help lead us to a Chip?

I'm not even sure Melo would ever be on the All-star team again if he stayed in the West. Durant, Blake, Love, Davis and Howard would fill up those Forward spots pretty fast. Of course Melo would probably get in because of his name, but he's not better than any of those guys.

There are 6 teams in the west with at least 10 wins including Clips at 11. There is a 9 win team and there are 5 with 8 wins.

In contrast, there are 2 teams in east with 12+ wins, they would be elite even in west. Only one team team with 8 wins after that, and that team is .500.

Just some curiosity after the 1st full month of NBA gone by.

Also, who saw Portland at 13-3?

^Not me but they have had a pretty soft schedule with unsustainable production from some of their players. They had an impressive win over San Antonio though.

Good read on the why's of Portland's success so far this season and IF it's sustainable.

Dam just when I thought OKC would lose. Westbrook makes a crazy 3 point shot :/ with .1 seconds left after the shot.

^I saw that too. I was bummed but at same time GSW lost so it gives us another game in Pacific Division race.

Also, is it me or Russel West. right foot is on the line on his shot?

By the way Indiana will start a 5 game west swing starting at LA Clippers.

They are 3-0 vs west: beat Pelicans at NO by 5 then mopped Memphis at home by 16 and did the same to the Wolves by 14 at home.

Big test for the clips as well. Maybe without Paul and JJ with Barnes out already.

I reckon CP will play. I reckon he was ok last night for the Kings but that they were being cautious to make sure he was all good for the Pacers.

Oh how I hope Brooklyn can perform some miracle and beat Memphis tonight! Speaking of which, I still can't believe what Kidd tried to pull considering he's been granted a head coaching position without any experience even as an assistant coach. Maybe he'll get better but right now he looks like a joke.

^ I agree with you about beating Memphis. It is more of their style of game, SSSSllllooooWWW.

I do not think Kidd is a great nor a ok coach. The cards he has been dealt are tough for any coach. He has not had his starting 5 healthy for a good portion of games. Plus, he is missing AK47.

Having said that, I think it was genius. The only thing he did wrong was getting caught. He used to do tricks as a player and that translates now as a coach. He will learn how to hide them in the future.

Not saying is the right thing to do but, it was funny.

Down 2, I believe, he picked up a cup of soda while a Laker was shooting a free-throw. He walked close to the court and asked one of his players to bump into him. He dropped the cup and bought time for his assistant to call a play. Funny thing is that there were 2 Lakers in their huddle!

SO David West taught it would be funny to go off on BG and the Clippers yesterday but it was perfectly fine to go for only 12 today on 14 shots vs portland???

I haven't watched Portland play this season, but are they the real deal? They have had a easy schedule but now they are beating some better teams. It will be interesting to see where they end up. They beat the Pacers last night.

We don't play them till Feb and then again on the last game of the regular season.

Didn't expect the Pacers to win against Portland tbh. Not that Portland is the better team but b2bs on the road are very hard to pull off especially against two quality teams.

Man anyone watch the Orlando game? I only saw the box score but was a crazy game stat wise!! Afflalo scored a career high 43, Glen Davis had a career high 33, both rookies: Oladipo and Carter-Williams had triple doubles and 5 of the Sixers players scored 17 or more. Must have been an awesome game to watch

Wow, Portland are really balling, they beat the Pacers and then the Thunder and have gone ahead of the Spurs in the standings.

Watching Luol Deng have a great game against Lebron tonight. Definitely a great SF. Could you possibly imagine Blake, CP3, DJ and two former Duke teammates JJ and Luol on the same team? Will never happen, but it's still an intriguing thought.

I play ball with a guy who used to coach Deng here in England. Deng is also the best player on our GB Bball team so I have long been a fan. Love to see him play for the Clips. A SF who contributes at both ends of the court has gotto be a good thing. Like you say though, it won't happen.

I don't know why but Portland being way better than us really bothers me. Particularly Portland. I wouldn't care as much if it was an y other team that was below us in standings last year.

Any of those who doubted the Pacers before are gone now. Those guys are for real.

Is it me or OKC does not losebany more. We are losing ground.

In 14 minutes, Lou Amundson went 2-3 from the field, grabbed 6 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block. Hmmm.

Ugh, Dallas might've beaten GS if they drew up a better play than that terrible ISO for Ellis. How do you not allow Dirk to touch the ball in that moment?

I don't get Lamarcus Aldridge. Some days this guy's a monster on the boards (25 rebounds tonight). Other nights he might get, like, 3 or 4.

LMA has been rebounding well above his averages so far this season. Don't think he will sustain it long term but we will see. Probably will be better than his norm but right now he is way above that.

Looking at how well Dragic + Bledsoe are working out in Phoenix I am disgusted by how Vinny the black did not even try a Paul/Bledsoe combo....

What a waste.

Paul + Bledsoe >>>Paul/Green or Paul/washed up Billups.

Dragic and Bledsoe both seem like hybrid PG/SG's and it works out quite nicely for them. Both almost dead even at 19 points, 6 assists a game.

^Its scary how their stats are so identical across the board. Nearly the same FG%, 3 pt %, ft%, same exact FTA o.o and nearly the same FGA. The only difference is Bledsoe rebounds more but turns the ball over more. Also a better defender.

Definitely feel like Bledsoe could have been a 15/4/4 player on 30-32 mpg along with good defense as our starting SG. Sucks we never gave him a chance.

Happy that he is doing well at least but at this rate the Suns will have a better record than us with that two headed monster PG/SG combo.
