    Jae Crowder and Branden Wright are shapeshifters

    i think that settles the most improved player debate, with this move Crowder raised his PER from 10 to 21 in less than a second.

    John Wall with an absurd game of 47/7/8. The guy has always had massive talent and potential--perhaps he's finally arriving?
    Or perhaps he sees a very big payday approaching and has kicked it up to notches he didn't bother to even try to reach before, and won't again once those dollars start flowing!

    I have him in a keeper fantasy league, so I hope this becomes the new norm for him, but I have to be at least a little skeptical.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I think it has more to do with Wall's injury. It takes a while to come back from a fractured kneecap and this is the first time he's had a chance to play with talent (since Kentucky).

    He's been playing extremely well lately and was overdue for a big game like last night. I doubt he scores like that again.

    The Wizards are now 22-16 after starting 4-28, by the way. If they maintained that pace for full season, they'd be 5th seed right now.

    I think the Nuggets are the sleeper team in the West. The addition of Iguodala really improved their team.

    The Lakers better watch their back. Dallas is getting very close to taking their playoff spot.

    They've won the last few games with Wall being pretty much the only guard playing. (Ariza, Webster, Beal, and Price were all out, I think.)

    I wonder how Darren Collison feels about Mike James the journey man starting in front of him, while he is stuck as the 7th man. Grass isn't greener on the other side, he would have had a better season if he stayed in Indiana.

    It's not like it was his choice to leave.

    It was mentioned a few times, that he was not satisfied coming off the bench for the Pacers and believed he was a starter, otherwise the Pacers could have easily signed Mahinmi without trading Collison.

    He still was traded and didn't have any say in the matter. IIRC, the trade had salary cap implications.

    Isn't World Peace out now with an injury for the next 6 weeks? If so, that isn't going to help the Lakers in their striving to stay in the playoffs.

    A lot of important games tonight. Rooting for Milwaukee, Raptors (vs. Atlanta) and Cleveland (vs. Boston)...
    if they all win, the chances of an Indiana/NY/Milwaukee/Atlanta bracket go up significantly.

    The Cavs just got screwed by the refs. The refs gave the Celtics the time needed to draw up a play with a pointless review. 2.1 secs left, no timeouts, then the Celts get gifted time to prepare.

    Boston wins. Did the "timeout really" help? What was the review for?

    I think it was for the time left, although the announcers said it was for last touch. They didn't change time and the touch was as obvious as it gets. Whichever it was, generally I can't blame the refs for trying to be 100% safe but in a case like this it hurts one side way too much and it looked unnecessary.

    The Cavs basically stopped the Celtics on their final play, deflected the ball out of bounds, 2 seconds left, the Celtics look clueless, and then they get a break and execute a beautiful out of bounds play to win.

    You think ESPN regrets switching the game now?

    Luol Deng finishes with 28 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Carlos Boozer had 21 points and 17 rebs. The veterans showed up tonight.


    Damn.
