    Brooklyn Nets are on a 6 Game win streak .. Yo Wsup !!!
    I bet Ball was covering him... and Lonzo did have 23-6-3 himself.

    Cavs and Hawks win. Great night!

    Not sure why you would say this since Ball is a great defender, best defensive RPM of any PG in the NBA with at least 25mpg. Mentioned Russ and Dinwiddie in your other thread as a reason the Knicks should be patient with Nits, both played a big part in that win against the Lakers. Atkinson went with an ultra small lineup with the Hyphen playing C and a lineup of Russ, Dinwiddie, Harris and Dudley. Didn't think it would work but this is the new NBA.

    Didn’t realize metrics favored LB that much? Or did his Daddy rig it? Must be the sneakers. He does effort tho and body up.

    I’ll poke fun of Ball any chance I can.... He just can’t cover these athletic guards bc he’s slower than a female Romanian bodybuilder. But, Ball did offset Russell with his scoring.

    Anyway, I would love nothing more than to witness LeBron and Ball struggle to be the 8th seed the next 3 years. A pox on any team that trades a star to LAK... ESPN Media machine already hyping Ingram, Hart, Kuzma for Davis. No freaking way!

    The new NBA is geared to helping these Gs score. Did you see the 6 step Harden stepback vs Utah? You can’t touch a guard and he can take 5-6 steps... a defense is basically at the mercy of the miss these days.

    Head coach Atkinson's 2-way and 3-way switches by Dinwiddle & Russ confused the Lakers defense throughout the 2nd half of the game.
    I have to give coach Atkinson big props on coaching PG Conley, PG Russ, and Dinwiddle into decent floor leader play-makers .. I can only wish Fizdale had half of coach Atkinson know-how !!!

    I had to check what I said about Lonzo RPM numbers and I misstated, he's like ranked 20th in DRPM still pretty good. I did see that Rox Utah game, refs are blind, too many new refs in the league I see way too many easy calls being missed these days.

    And tonight, the Rockets tried to do it again against the Miami Heat by shooting 18-54 from the 3-ball line tonite, and loss the game to the Heat 101- 99 .. CTFU to-to many wasted 3-ball shots to hold a lead, and to control the tempo of the game .. The Rockets 5 game win streak ended tonight by way of shooting 18-54 3-ball shots out of 82 fga .. SMH !!!

    Do you Guys remember "Danilo Gallinari" Gallo?
    Tonight, Gallo scored 32 pts, 6 rb, 4 ast, and 2 Blks on 68% fga to give the Clippers a 125 - 121 win over a hot Dallas Mavs team.
    The LA Clippers coach Doc Rivers played a 11-Man same-page rotation that got 67 points from the bench-players tonight.
    If the Clippers stay healthy they will be the team u dont want to bumb-heads with come playoff time.

    CP3 out indefinitely with that hammy again.

    Clips have done a fantastic job transitioning away from that CP3, Blake, DJ team to this one. Gallo was a horse last night, both ends, those 2 blocks were part of the difference in the Clips win. That trade for CP3 that sent over Lou Williams and Montrez has been big for them. Now if Gallo can only go a full season without getting injured, they might make some noise in the playoffs this year.

    Regarding Ntilikina’s up-and-down season, Mills said confidence has been an issue. Ntilikina is 6-of-25 shooting in his past four games.

    “Frank is a young, young player,” Mills said. “There are a lot of things that he continues to get better at from a defensive standpoint. We’ve got to find a way to work with Frank and allow the confidence on the offensive end of the floor to sort of live within him all the time. It’s there sometimes, it’s not there other times, but that’s what we feel like our job is as a management team. We sit around and say we have to pour confidence into these guys.”

    Knits for Fox!

    Doncic and Fox were my 2 favs last 2 drafts. Was even worth sacrificing KP to get 1.
    Fox and Heigld, Im afraid, are doomed to become the next Lilard-Mccullum duo.

    Frank Nitty has been playing ****ty all season under coach Fizdale .. Frank hasn't run any offensive plays with teammates in any of Fizdale's lineups this season.
    Frank's a 6.7 player that no longer slashes to the hoop, or cut to the hoop looking for the pass for a easy layup, nor does Frank give n go or PnR with teammates in Fizdale's offense. Last season as a rookie Frank averaged 3 assist per game for the season, when compared to this season Frank is averaging 2 assist per game, a decline in Frank's weak offensive performance are speaking volume on his position as a PG. I dont know bout anyone else but Im tired of watching Frank take 92% of his shots from the perimeter.
    Plus Frank's one on one, or man to man switch-defense has been looking ****ty, even though Fizdale has little to no help team defense from teammates. Truth be said, Frank has not been involve on the court this season, especially standing at 6.7 in height and cant grab 1 rebound every 5 minutes on the court.
