    Also nice to see Tobias finally get PT. He is like a perfect small ball PF. I was so excited he was traded dude deserved PT with the Bucks but wasn't getting it. Now that he is in Orlando he is going to get a chance to develop.

    The Coach said that this is attributed to the return of John Wall.

    Over the last 10 games, they are between Top 4-6 in Opponents FG% and Points allowed.

    I know...really surprising.

    Surprising in the sense that when you think of the Wizards....you don't think of them as a Team that wins games.....they just ride the Lottery-Express year in and year out.

    I don't tend to pay attention to them because of this and therefore was pleasantly surprised that they are a very solid defensive team.

    People were surprised/upset when the Wizards kept it close with the Pacers, but the reality was, they were keeping it close with everyone because their defense was good enough to do so. Their offense was always the problem. It's why they've been able to beat OKC, Miami, Denver in Denver..etc. Those just happen to be the days when players got hot.

    For some reason, the Bucks thought that it was the right decision to let Al Horford go 1-on-1 versus Larry Sanders in the post. Al backed him up from almost the 3 point line to the low post in 2-3 seconds and no one attempted to close in or help.

    Very nice win. Defense is enough to carry this team. The offense has def been a plus lately. Just makes you feel you know what the Pacers are truly capable of, and then when they aren't at their best, they can still win.

    The Pacers continue to be overly sloppy with their passes. Simply has to be cleaned up. Great defense or not, the amount of TOs the Pacers have a game could be a huge problem in the playoffs. Turnovers are gonna happen, but I swear half of them every game aren't even forced. Just bone headed plays. Very fixable, but is still problematic for this team.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    What a great game at Dallas. Kobe was out of this world with 38 points-12 rebounds and 7 assists. Has to be one of his best performances in the last years.
    Disappointed with Dallas as I waited them to get this vital game at home. Dirk scored 30 and seemed rather alone out there. Mavs are done for this year.

    great news for NOLA Eric Gordon looks healthy. He is moving really good and back into form. I was worried for a while he didnt look right but he looks 110% now.


    Sacramento's team is just so wierd. Hard to explain just a mess all around. They should have traded Reke. I just don't get it they have to many guards who do the same thing. I dont think they have one smart high IQ player on the team


    Holy Crap Salmons has scored 15 in like 6 minutes can't miss. Also the Kings have the funniest commercials in the NBA bar done.

    I don't think we can apply logic to what the Kings are doing until they have new owners.

    That looks like him in college at U San Francisco- a home white jersey but no parquet floor thus no Boston Garden. There's a scoreboard in the background that says 35-18 but I can't read the team names.
