@andyboiii: NBA near deals to allow live local streaming leaguewide

That is likely going to be a non-issue. That'd be very refreshing.

woah that's a game changer, thanks for letting me know

@Jagged3dge: Yep, Harden/Durant/Howard here we come. Think, not long ago our best player was either Scola or Kevin Martin and our Center was 6'6 Chuck Hayes. Make it happen Morey-We stacked

Well the Thunder have gotten progressively worse since their finals appearance. If the Thunder don't win a ship or return to the finals, then I think Durant goes into win now mode. The man is hungry (no skinny joke). It helps Harden is like his best friend.

Didn't actually get to watch the game. Guess I'll see on the 29th.

Anyway... kinda glad this forum is still alive. Not many people to 'talk' sports with.

Go Spurs Go!

Same. The Heat and Bulls need another competitive series.

#77 Edited by Silverbond (16066 posts) -

Final score predictions
Heat-101
Bulls-97

Clippers-105
Lakers-79

#78 Posted by Master_Live (14812 posts) -

Cole sorta "broke" Rose's ankles...twice.

#79 Edited by PSP107 (11908 posts) -

lol, Deng and Butler's foul trouble.

Dunleavy and Gibson giving us nothing.

The rookie Snell has to find his shot.

@Master_Live

I liked how you said "Sorta" because Rose was expecting the screen. But i'll take it if I was Cole.

#80 Edited by Master_Live (14812 posts) -

Well, lets see how the Clippers look with a competent coach.

#81 Posted by yokofox33 (29881 posts) -

Credit to the Bulls for fighting back. Heat played pretty sloppy in the 2nd half, but good to see them take the win against a bitter rival.

7th to 8th seed realistically and out in the 1st round. Maybe the 6th seed if things go right.

It's a step forward.

#85 Edited by -Renegade (8340 posts) -

unbelievable. clippers loose to lakers with no kobe. looks like LA won't miss dwight at all. glad jordan is back, always thought he was an underrated and underplayed player.

#86 Posted by Jagged3dge (3895 posts) -

Bigger win margin than I expected, good win.

It'll be interesting to see if the Heat actually play tough like that throughout the season. They played catchup a lot during games last season, always hoping to just turn it on in the 2nd half.

Rose struggled but you have to cut the guy some slack. He's starting the regular season against an elite defense. The Heat's blitzing on Pick n' Rolls makes it hard for PGs to take over. I'm sure he'll figure it out.

Best part was the balanced scoring effort. 7 players in double figure scoring. The point guards accepted the challenge. That Cole crossover on D-Rose was niceee.

#87 Edited by PSP107 (11908 posts) -

@Jagged3dge:

where was olden?

And yeah your Heat got us this game. The Bulls reserves don't look as good as last year's bench. Personally I thought they should have match Asik offer from the Rockets. Resigned Bellani or Robinson.

Deng and Butler getting into foul trouble early forced Thibs to go with the Rookie Snell. At least he got some real experience. But it also showed why the Bulls should of picked Dieng from Louisville.

#88 Posted by yokofox33 (29881 posts) -

@Seabas989: Nawwww. Fsu's dismantling of Clemson was a pretty happy night for me.

Still surprised Lakers won last night. Not getting my hopes up for anything special though.

In a suit.

The Heat are trying to slowly bring him into gametime mode, we want him to healthy for the postseason not little conference skirmishes. The last thing you want to do is put a notoriously injury prone guy against a team like Chicago in the first piece of regular season action.

It's not like he was needed anyway.

Good for the 76ers. Might end up being their biggest win of the year.
