lol at The Bulls offense. Or is that NBA teams are really prepared for Rose.

lol you saying the Bulls offense is only D-Rose? Ouch.

Both teams didn't look too good. You can tell every team is just trying to find their rhythm tho at this point.

Lol, we got the good Dwight Howard.

#103 Posted by Master_Live (13994 posts) -

Oh look, a non crappy match up on ESPN. Figure that.

#104 Posted by Master_Live (13994 posts) -

Mike Breen tells me that Chris Bosh has developed a 3 point shot. I go to NBA Reference:

  • 10'-11': .240%
  • 11'-12': .286%
  • 12'-13': .284%

Keep up the good job Mike.

'Anaylst' seem to be too dependent on eye test/memory and not enough on facts found in evidence. At the least most of them. Hoping the cameras in all courts changes that.

Rockets drew a lot of fouls (37 today)-Love it.

2-0!

#106 Edited by Master_Live (13994 posts) -

Man these refs sucks so much, intrusive at times then extremely lax at others.

#107 Posted by No_Hablo_Ingles (8365 posts) -

Philly already has 2 wins... 25% the way to the win total I thought they would have this year.

#108 Posted by Master_Live (13994 posts) -

Man all that high leverage experience for the Heat is evident.

#109 Posted by Put_in_Kitna (2602 posts) -

The Lakers are awful, yet they probably win tonight.

#110 Posted by Jagged3dge (3895 posts) -

For once I'm just enjoying the ride of the regular season. I see these losses for how insignificant they really are; after all these final runs.

Rose is the only player that can create his own shot. Bulls might regret not bringing back either Robinson or Marco

The Nuggets are shit. I'll be surprised if they make the playoffs.

#113 Posted by Put_in_Kitna (2602 posts) -

The lakers stink.

Boy, that Dwight guy sure did make a bad call choosing the Rockets over the Mavs huh Mark?

This might be literally the dumbest thing I have ever seen on ESPN.com

Just Mark being Mark.

How are the 76ers 3-0...? Serious question

Wish I could tell you. I believe they started 5-0 last season and that didn't end so well.

Well the Bulls gave up a big lead(Wizards did too). but I will say Rose got outplayed by a rookie by a wide margin.

Heat gave up a 9 point lead also lol

From the highlights/stat sheet it looks like turnovers killed the Bulls like the Heat. That Philly team knows how to convert turnovers into easy points. Their speed really surprised me....still doubt they make the playoffs

#121 Posted by PSP107 (11677 posts) -

I didn't know Russell Westbrook was coming back tonight.

#122 Posted by No_Hablo_Ingles (8365 posts) -

news broke hours before game.

We should hope they do. If the 76ers make the playoffs the Heat get their 1st round pick. Deep draft, even a mid-round pick could be pretty solid.

You're right. I just think their GM would trade away all their valuable pieces before letting them make the playoffs for a sweep and a missed high draft pick oppertunity

#125 Edited by JML897 (33120 posts) -

They won't make the playoffs with this current team, like Jeff Van Gundy's been saying a lot of times bad teams in the beginning of the season just don't know they're bad yet. The Bobcats started 7-5 last year.

#126 Posted by DaJuicyMan (3415 posts) -

Dubs massacre the sixers, curry gets a triple double in under 20 mins.. Iguo$ with 35ish points. damn.

golden state has been incredible so far, clips needed 50 bs fts to beat them.

#127 Edited by Jagged3dge (3895 posts) -

No_Hablo_Ingles, You swear Harden's defense isn't that bad but then I see shit like this last night and I question if you even watch the games or just look at stats

#128 Posted by Braun_Roid_Rage (716 posts) -

Mavs look good so far.

#129 Posted by Master_Live (13994 posts) -

Another great matchup on ESPN tonight, Pacers vs. Bulls.

#130 Edited by yokofox33 (29226 posts) -

Jimmy Butler can ball, but he's one ugly ass mofo.

#131 Posted by Master_Live (13994 posts) -

Paul George looks comfortable...a little too comfortable. Playing sloppy.

#132 Posted by PSP107 (11677 posts) -
#133 Posted by Master_Live (13994 posts) -

Paul George's shot selection was horrendous.

#134 Posted by Braun_Roid_Rage (716 posts) -

Come on Mavs.

lf the knicks are under 500 by the trading deadline, we seriously need to trade Carmelo

#138 Posted by PSP107 (11677 posts) -

You think he will not resign with the Knicks if not traded?

lf we have a bad season and finish with a mediocre record, and go out in the first round again then ld say lts too big of a risk to find out. We traded so much for him we can't loose him for nothing. And honestly lf we aren't winning with him now, when are we ever going to. When he's 33? lt seems pointless. lf this season doesn't go well the Carmelo experiment has failed and we should move on.

So, 6 minutes into the 1st quarter, where are the Miami fans? Place looks half empty.

They on that Cuban time. Late by an hour for everything.

#142 Posted by Master_Live (13994 posts) -

Blake Griffin is such a pussy, he needs to start retaliating when other guys go after him. A couple of elbow to their faces will do.

#143 Edited by kemar7856 (11506 posts) -

wtf why is harden and lin getting all these weak calls

#144 Posted by mems_1224 (46230 posts) -

Rockets deserve to lose that one. Ugly ass game from them.

#145 Edited by Seabas989 (10036 posts) -

lol Rockets.

I hate the Lakers but happy that it was Steve Blake that made the game winner.

#146 Posted by Put_in_Kitna (2602 posts) -

Hilarious hack a Dwight. Pop approves. Rockets get gaped by Kobe-less team, Dwight chokes. Great night.

#147 Posted by andyboiii (13629 posts) -

this is why Lakers let Dwight Howard go, the guy just isn't mentally tough, he still doesn't have a good post game, free throws still terrible, and people wonder why I bashed him last season? he's still the same guy! I'm so glad he didn't choose to come back with the Lakers, now I'm laughing at the Rockets for giving him that terrible contract that they're stuck with

rockets didnt lose because of dwight though. his free throws didnt help but the lakers were destroying us beyond the arc

That was pathetic. Oh well, don't really care.
