Howard has really turned the Rockets into a defensive juggernaut.

There booing Dwight at a clipper game. Seems to me there some laker fans that may have jumped ship.

There are a lot of Lakers fans who attend Clippers games. You see that in how split the crowd is for Clippers home games vs. the Lakers. I wasn't surprised at all to hear how many boos there were for Dwight.

The commentary about how Houston is a poor perimeter defensive team was interesting. It's going to be interesting to see how the season plays out. Dwight better be willing to score 15 and rebound his butt off is all I got to say. It looks like there's a lot of resistance to throwing the ball inside to that turnover machine. I wonder if it will wear thin and he'll start to demand more? Right now the Rockets are lucky they've kept Asik too.

I thought Andrew Bynum looked decent vs. the T-Wolves last night. He played limited minutes, but made an impact. Coming off the court, Drew got a warm greeting and "high-five" from Mike Brown like he was his long lost Prodigal Son.

Perimeter defense is an issue w/ Houston. Their best perimeter defender, Patrick Beverley, is injured so they have a lot of holes the quick footed Clips can exploit on the half-court sets.

Bynum was great. He obviously can't defend as well as he should be able to because he still lacks that ability to quickly jump out on P&Rs. But he was good enough IMO.

In fact, I think I lost the rebounding category in one of my fantasy leagues because I only had Vitor Faverani (who was a flop vs Memphis) against Drew and Deandre Jordan. >_>

Didn't they just give up almost 140 points to the Clips in 48 minutes?

If not, that was horrible timing for a comment man.

Good game between CHI and IND. Check out Scola sprint back to defensive position after his fast break basket.

It's great to see them win 1 finally, but Wallace and Faverani are not getting any love lately. TT__________TT

Let me correct my statement, as I realize how it might have been misinterpreted.

While watching the Clippers score at will over the Rockets I realize they are a poor defensive team even with the addition of Dwight Howard. With Beverly injured their perimeter defense isn't any better than the Lakers was last year. Also, James Harden will never be Kobe's equal offensively or defensively.

Sorry for the confusion. I sometimes forget that sarcasm is the most highly developed form of humor and some people never get it. Smile

If Paul Pierce is the "Truth" and Allen Iverson was the "Answer"... Russell Westbrook is the "Truthful Answer". That boy is clearly the star of OKC. What a beast.

This is what makes the heat scary. They weren't the 2x champs in the 1st half but picked it up focus on the defense and executed. Their offense came along. However saying that I still stick by my word and say that Indiana will take them out come May.

Rudy Gay nails a game tying 3 against Rockets sending it into double OT. James harden is weak out there and Dwight bricking his FT's as usual. I love it Smile)

So the Pacers are kind of good, huh? Oh, and Danny Granger isn't even back yet. This team could be scary good. May come out of the East this year if Miami's problems continue.

So I was on Clip forums and they are mad at Chris Paul for having a 'bum' game. 18 points, 11 assists, 9 rebounds and only 2 turnovers. Man they are going to miss him when he's gone.

You're not taking into consideration how inefficient he was last night. As much as I love Chris Paul (Favorite PG, maybe favorite player) he went 5-14.

Heat just got their butts handed to them by the Pacers on a great come from behind win. Pacers play so hard and Heat struggle so much with them that by the end of the game James & Co threw collective tantrum.

After seeing how the Spurs came so close to beating the Heat, I think that the Pacers have a chance now. The Spurs lost because of their own stupid mistakes. Gonna be an interesting post season...

Chris Paul puts up numbers, but he doesn't know when to be aggressive. 18 points isn't even enough #'s though. I'm glad that we didn't get him. I would rather Durant in the future...

good come from behind win however Paul George should have been shooting free throws. Clearly a foul on that play.

Exciting game with SA @ GS. Very close and badly officiated. Nonetheless, Spurs won with their big three not playing. Effin Danphoni. I wonder what kind of career resurrection Xavier would he have if he played for the Spurs. An Effin 21-5 record! Ahhhhhhh!

When Pekovic and Love get going like that, they�re probably the most fun to watch out of any C/PF combo. Just so good those two.

See Love buckle Griffin with a bow to the dome? That was Lovely.

On a side note, Pekovic has the ugliest hook shot in today's game. How does he turn around, jump, and kiss both his feet all in one motion.

Love completely dominated, what a performance.

Re Pekovic: Ha, indeed, he's post moves are so ugly, but yet so gritty. But they were even ugglier back when he first got to the league...umpf, not a pretty sight.

Pound for pound he has to be one of the strongest players in the NBA though, really undrrated player on both ends. I think he can still get better though.

If Minny wants to go somewhere, they do need Rubio to step up another notch. It can't be Love-Pekovic and the occasional Martin/Brewer game.

Also on an eastern note, Lance Stephenson has improved so much. If he doesn't drop his momentum, i'm prettu sure he is going to win most improved player. He fills the stat sheet, no matter how reckless he can at times. Now that his decision making has been improving game by game, he is another threat in that team, officially, not just as a dark horse.

Terrence Ross on the Raptors blew up on the Clippers for 51 points! They lost, but I've always expected this kid to be good ever since I saw him play in the summer league his rookie year, nice to see I was right about him. He's in his second year now and if the Raptors side with keeping DeMar DeRozan and let Terrence Ross go I bet he will grow to be an allstar somewhere else. I think his contract with Toronto is up after the 2015-16 season just in time to replace Kobe...

I like to watch Westbrook, Curry, Durant, Jimmy Butler.

Very fun players to watch. If you've seen any GSW games this year some things they do is just insane.

I hear you, also find myself starting to watch Wiggins more. Kid just learning the game and still has a lot of physical development left. But already showing signs of becoming a very good to great nba player.

Warriors are breaking all kinds of records. 21 straight wins. I think LeBron is wondering if his stacked team could beat the Warriors in a final championship match.

I think the Warriors will win several championships with this team IF they stay together.
