They loss to the Wizards at home 3x in a row. I doubt anyone even cares. They are a lock for the Finals anyway. The Heat have literally not been trying until the 4th quarter for the past five or so games.

The definition of coasting.

Watching the laker channel right now and they seem more obsessed with kobe getting to 30,000 than actually winning the game.

Just keep shooting, snake-boy.

It's crazy to think where KD and LeBron will end up on the All-time scoring list. I think KD will be the greatest scorer in NBA history, actually that all depends on Westbrook.

He has never shot even close to this efficiently in his entire career so his efficiency will crash soon enough. He is largely putting up empty stats that don't amount to wins and he has been a net negative on the defensive end.

Its disgusting he has won so many all defensive awards. He hasn't deserved any since 05.

Still, like I said, he's having a very good season SO FAR. We'll see if it can continue like this all season soon enough. By the way look at his ws/48 and PER, best in a while.

No doubt. Offensively Kobe is actually having a career high in terms of efficiency.

Knicks blew out the Heat at home without Melo, Amare, Shumpert. lol

Two blow out games against the Heat. My Knicks are for real this season.

Knicks are the Clippers of the East IMO, except they didn't go on a losing skid to put them from 1 to #4. That's why I love that this is a long season.

Snake-boy trying to singlehandedly flop his way to a win in OKC... first time I've ever seen two flops on the same play, actually... but Russell Westbrook is having none of it. Raining 3's all over the place... 27 points in a half for him, 18 for Durant and 67 for the team Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_23

Aren't kobe, Mental W.P. and Coward supposed to be all-NBA defenders?

Still, I'm sure getting Nash back will help in that department Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_03

^never said they'd finish above us, just that their better than most people think and beating us gave them a lot of confinance. Let's see what happens when we meet again in Jan for 3 games.

Their not an easy beat anymore.

The GSW have always been a good team on paper. Its just that they could never stay healthy. So their success is no surprise to me.

Regardless their W/L actually overstates how good they are. Their point differential is very small and their defense and offense is pretty middle of the pack.

They are a bottom end playoff team.

^their defense maybe middle of the pack, but from where they we're ranked last year (27th) to 15th so far this season is a huge jump...plus they've been rebounding (ranked 8th so far) at almost 8 per game better than last year. Too bad they haven't had their center on the court for long either.

They have a guy that's turning out to be a good coach too.

Really the West atm is:

Spurs

OKC

Clippers

Grizzlies

Lakers

big gap

Rest of the West.

Even with Bogut I don't ever see them getting higher than the 6th seed.

Keep in mind that their record is overstated since they had a lot of close games which they won and faced relatively weak competition.

They have an SRS(Simple rating system) of 1 while the OKC, Spurs, Clippers, Grizzlies have an SRS of over 8.

At best 6th seed. At worst barely missing the playoffs.

^not debating whether they can break into the top team category in the West this year, just saying this team is better than you think and getting better with each game. Their future looks good.

By the way their in the top 10 in SOS so far this season.

Well George got a lot taller so he matches up better now and who doesn't get lit up by Durant? Especially if he was hot that day.

Best offense when hot>>>any defense.

Lin just dropped 32 points in 15 shots on the Spurs.Shocked

Game not done yet too.

Hopefully the Rockets win. Also beat Okc while they are at it. lol

Bleh the Rockets took Lin out and they loss their 10 point lead in like 2 minutes. cry

Mchale is a horrendous coach.

Take out the hot hand and watch the offense get stagnant and take it to OT.

Vinny would never do something so stupid.

They blew it because they took out the guy who was doing all the scoring. Then they didn't score for like 3 minutes straight. Mchale is absolute garbage. As a Knicks fan I feel bad for Lin. He gets treated like a D league scrub on that team.

They also lost cause Harden didn't play.

Oh and GSW won again and are now 8-4 on the road. Don't think their going to go away....here's hoping they finish ahead of the Lakers.

Lakers are just downright terrible atm but Kobe should be happy. He got to pad his stats against the miserable Cavs defense.
