IN LA - The last time these two teams played, it was a similar score. I remember thinking we might give LA it’s worst loss ever then, but they showed some heart and only lost by 30+. Only. This time, they ran into the Clippers’ newly minted bench, which was ultimately too superior for the Lakers to come back on. The 48-point win i [...]
Somebody, Stop Me
“The Mask” stormed Miami with 61 points vs. Charlotte tonight. LBJ was in the zone, felling himself behind that mask. James netted 8 of 10 threes, including back-to-back which he concluded from around 30-feet.
His voice is sooo nasally. Andre Drummond tuned out his nasally coach for 26 rebounds, a career-high. It was the most by a Bad Boy since ’02, when “Big” Ben Wallace snagged 28. The Pistons outplayed New York the entire second half, turning a five-point halftime deficit into a double-digit win. Will Bynum secured the game wit [...]
Vinny del N was very strong, however, Doc Rivers is stronger. Rivers’ presence has single-handedly changed the Clippers from second-round snarfs to legitimate Western Conference Contenders. The additions of Glen “Big Baby” Davis and Danny Granger show NBAers want to play for us now. DeAndre Jordan has grown into a top ten ce [...]
Rest that calf until it’s ready, G.
The Clips kept Anthony Davis in foul trouble and stormed out to a big early lead. Best plays: Matt Barnes lobs it off the glass to a streaking DeAndre Jordan for the slam. Blake Griffin drives to the lane and dishes behind the back all the way out to the corner three. Barnes catches and passes to Chris Paul, who draws the defender then instan [...]
Hell yeah I cried as that jersey rose to the rafters. AI was a huge part of my childhood, playing in his prime while I was growing up. Iverson was transcendent. He was a little guy who played through countless injuries. He brought hip-hop right to the front of the NBA. His ability to score was unmatched, even by Kobe, in his era. Congratula [...]
With Jamal Crawford hurt, Darren Collison really upped his game. Collison scored seven points in a row for LA down the stretch, helping us pull out the win against the Rockets.
Let me illustrate my frustrations with one stretch of play: The Pistons led six with roughly three minutes remaining in the half. Our coach calls timeout with the lead at four, two and a half left. We promptly turn it over out of the timeout, then allow the Spurs to go ride down the lane uncontested. That’s right out of a timeout. We tr [...]
The first openly gay player in the history of major sports. Well Done CONGRATULATIONS, G. THESPORTINGSNARF SUPPORTS EVERYONE.
72-66 at halftime, LA leads. That’s where I picked up after the in-state battle. The Clippers were simply unstoppable for a stretch, with Matt Barnes starting 6-7 from downtown. However, the annual snarf freakout prevailed when I saw a 15-point lead evaporate. Luckily, Michigan’s Jamal Crawford was “feeling it.” In th [...]
