Harden was an absolute animal tonight against the Thunder. He put up a career-high in points and Lin wasn't slouching either. Really glad we got the win.

Don't know what to think about the trade that they made just before the game though. Seems like we traded P Patt, who had clearly developed his 3-point shooting this season, for some rookie PF from the Kings that I haven't really heard of. But whatever. He was the 5th pick, so I guess he could have some potential.

Robinson was a beast at Kansas.

Vinsanity continues to turn back the clock. Aside from the rookie deals, he might be the best bargain in the NBA

I think Houston got a steal in Robinson. Patterson is an OK player, but 3 point % isn't really something I'm looking for from a PF. He also isn't a great rebounder. Like Casey said, Robinson was great at KU, and I think he'll really improve once he gets some minutes in Houston.

I wonder what my team was thinking. JJ was one of the only good things on our team and we dealt him off vs extending an offer. What we got in return was even more youth, no mid profile type player either.

This smell like the reverse of Otis Smith...

Damn I wish the Kings would stay in Sac.

I swear the Maloofs have been running the team into the ground for the last 10 years. No recent big name free agent signings, no money spent on coaching, have some of the lowest payroll in the league year after year... how do you expect the team to be good?

Then you don't sell the team to a local seller and use all of Sacramento's efforts to keep the team to get a better deal with Seattle (who by the way is desperate themselves to get a team). What a bunch of scumbags.

Like someone else mentioned, the only good thing to come out of the deal (as a Kings fan) would be that the Maloofs would no longer own the team.

Can't describe how much it blows that the Kings have been tanking all of these years under the Maloofs only to be traded away. After years of mediocrity, when these horrible owners are finally removed from ownership and the Kings show new hope for change... they are sold to another city.

:-(

Well it looks like things aren't getting any better for the Kings either. Stern went on record yesterday saying that Seattle currently has the better offer on the table and that the current offer from Sacramento isn't comparable.

This surprisingly isn't the Maloofs fault either. Mayor (and former player) Kevin Johnson and the investors are apparently the hold up.

Even though it's a win-win for my Rockets when it comes to who loses in this Lakers/Warriors game, but I was really hoping the Lakers could upset Golden State so we could jump them in the seedings.

But oh well. Assuming the Lakers do manage to hold onto the 8th seed, no way they get out of the first round.

I feel that if the Lakers are looking for a shot of moving on, it'd be against San Antonio. They don't want to see OKC and dont have enough time to earn anything higher seed-wise. If the Lakers play the way they have been recently and Gasol can stay healthy, the Spurs are the better matchup for them.

That game also was win for myself, being a die hard Mavs fan, as we're now only 1.5GB. Running out of time and we definitely have the tougher schedule, but stranger things have happened.

I think the Chicago game was not the norm, he seems to be hitting his normal numbers. He's always been a little streaky with his shooting.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

Wow, Erik Spoelstra just topped Gregg Popovich by resting his stars after Pop rested the Spurs starters in their first meeting, but unlike the Spurs in Miami, the Heat were able to pull out the win on the road without LeBron and Wade! Haha love that move by the Heat front office. I thought about them doing this when the Spurs did it awhile ago, but forgot until the game started.

Rumor is that Houston basketball legend Guy Lewis will finally make it into the Basketball HOF. I'm glad the old guy will get to see this day before he passed.

And the postseason is getting closer and closer. Just about 2 weeks left in the regular season, and if the Lakers can manage to stay a game ahead of Utah, they'll make it. It may come down to the last game of the season between the Lakers and my Rockets.

Danilo Gallinari went down tonight in our game vs Denver. That could be huge for them in the playoffs. Nothing out yet on how serious it is, but it looked pretty bad.

If you're the Knicks, don't you want 3rd seed instead of 2nd? Nobody wants to play Boston 1st round...ATL is an easier matchup. They have winning records against both teams but I just feel like Boston is a much tougher out come playoff time.

Gotta love the career 1-8 in the playoffs that anthony is rocking. He probably cherishes that one career series win about as much as his MV...oh, nevermind he doesn't have one of those either. I will admit he has gotten better at rebounding, but other than that he is the same carmelo, just shooting more.

Also, I am still mesmerized by boozer rocking the ref.

He has won two. Denver went to the WCF with him at the helm.

Why? He is still Melo. He shoots the ball way too much and can't get it done without Felton. I saw it earlier in the season when Felton was shelved with an injury.

What has worked for the Knicks is the non-Melo players and the lack of Amare/turnover machine Lin... only 1 defensive liability on the court (you know who *cough* Melo).

Unfortunately, Melo isn't the only defensive liability with the Knicks. Quick guards completely murder the Knick backcourt, especially when Shump is on the bench. Westbrook and Jackson made New York look silly yesterday. Fortunately, when they are hitting their 3's, it really doesn't matter. Live by the sword, die by the sword, though...

JR Smith has been integral in this recent run by the Knicks.

And the noose is getting tighter around the neck of the Lakers. They're a half game behind the Jazz now and due to Utah owning the tie-breaker, they need to be at least a game ahead of them if they want to make it to the playoffs.

I see folks are playing the Felton card now. This would be the same Raymond Felton who was run out of town in Portland and was barely a starter in Charlotte. Yeah I'm sure Melo is nothing without him.

The Knicks win or lose based on how they shoot the three.

Hahaha Jermaine O'Neal just cost his team the game. You figured an old man like him would know not to goaltend on the last possession of a tied game.

Now all that's left is to wait for the Thunder to finish beating the Jazz in a couple minutes and the Rockets will have a playoff spot locked up.
