    Hey Mafra, never asked but are you a POR fan living in the state? Melo got the start tonight, is POR that desperate to start a guy that hasn't played an NBA game in over a year. That should be a short stay for Melo before the Blazers figure out he can't help them.

    Melo with 10 points on 4-14 shooting (2-3 from downtown)

    I root for them in playoffs... but I just moved out West in 2015. Haven’t even gone to a game yet... I watch a few games here and there.

    Little has been solid, Whiteside makes them more interesting... Super Mario and Melo!

    CA a lottery ticket. Need a reliable 3rd scorer, and with both bacK court and front court settled... maybe Melo or Hood help carry the scoring load for their super Gs.

    Pels beat 'em. Haven't watched any Blazers games this season with all the good teams in the WC but I'll watch a few now that Melo is there.

    Saw the game. Surprised how well Melo played after not playing a game since Nov 8 ast year. He didn't labor or look tired, shows he's been working on his game diligently in his year long exile. Still think POR will eventually cut him since the criticism of him that he can't defend still exist, the guy just can't defend anyone and he's not really an elite 3 pt shooter.

    Yeah .. they gonna cut em .. Melo still has the same SELFISH-performance he came to the league with.
    I was expecting Melo's return to be more of a team-ball player on both sides of the court to shut all the negative rap bout him, in Melo's first game i was expecting Melo to get 3 or 4 Dimes hitting Whiteside & McCollum for easy baskets.

    Doncic joined some guy named LeBron James as the only players in NBA history to notch a 40-point triple-double before the age of 21. Doncic now has six triple-doubles on the season and has been close on a few other occasions. He's been scoring in a slew of ways, whether it's off the dribble, step-backs or getting to the line. Doncic is posting numbers rarely seen by someone his age and is on-pace for a historic sophomore campaign in Dallas.
    He did it again in shorter work 35pts/11ast/10reb in 26min 11/18fg

    The Knicks could’ve wound up with Donovan Mitchell, one of the best young guards in the NBA, if they were willing to listen to Rick Pitino.

    According to Rick Pitino.

    “I tried to get the Knicks to take him, and nah [they said] they can’t take him at that number,” Pitino, Mitchell’s coach at Louisville, said on SiriusXM NBA Radio.

    That number was the eighth overall pick in the 2017 draft, during which the Knicks took Frank Ntilikina in the last move made by then-president Phil Jackson before he was let go. Five picks later, the Jazz selected Mitchell, the Elmsford, N.Y. native who has blossomed into a star, being named to the NBA’s All-Rookie first team and the winner of the 2018 Slam Dunk Contest. This year, Mitchell has gotten even better, averaging 24.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists.


    “Donovan I knew would be a star in the league,” Pitino said. “I always felt he could play the one. Can he run a pick-and-roll? Without question. Can he get other people shots? Without question. So, I always knew he could play two positions. He’s just a unique personality.”

    Exactly. Or our poor player development would have turned him into a second unit spark plug off the bench. The problem was never who we drafted, but rather what this cluster-f#%k of an organisation turned them int.

    I had to give head-coach Quin Snyder his "BIG-PROPA's for Donovan Mitchell rookie season having to deal with 4 talented-Project guards to use in his season rotation .. Rubio, Hood, Burks, and DM.

    Last night, I watched the Spurs vs 76ers game .. and coach Pop's Spurs are missing a leading-guard & point-forward to run Pop's creativeness .... The Embiid & Simmons 76ers took the lead at tip-off and coasted throughout the game for a easy win.

    Last night, MVP Harden & Westbrook Rockets went head to head again against Clippers Coach Doc's BIG-5 Kawhi/Lou/PG3/Bev/Harrell ... 122 - 119 Clippers win .. the season series is at 1-1

    Doncic, KP and Timmy lead DAL last HOU...

    Timmy better than DSJ and he was another salary dump....

    Would you prefer Timmy over Ellington, Bullock, EP, Portis and Randle?

    I think Randle is a better player than THJ, but Fizdale has turned Randle into a clown by using him as a perimeter ball handler instead of a low post scorer crashing the boards on each end of the floor.

    THJ is better than those other 4 guys though. Portis has his moments, but that’s about it.

    Yes, Timmy had 31 pts 5 ast, and 2 steals today in Mavs win over the Rockets, plus Timmy's scoring talent is much better than DSJ/Ellington/Payton/and Bullock when Timmy's under one of the top-10 head coaches in the league Rick Carlisle.
    KP had 23 pts 13 rbs 3 ast 2 stl and 1 Blk .... Yes, the Knicks KP trade to the Mavs were the Knicks giving up a 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali truck for a 2010 Toyota Prius. Mavs 11-5 record compared to Knicks 4-12 record.
    Doncic's 41 pts 10 rbs and 6 Dimes today over the Rockets were 4 ast short of a triple-double WIN.
