NBA Awards 3/25/13

March 25, 2013

Friday Night Highlights/Postscripts 1) Wizards Rally from 18 Down Behind Wall, Ariza to Defeat Lakers 103-100 — John Wall was stellar (24/6/16, 3 stl, just 1 T/O) and Trevor Ariza hit 4 of his career-best 7 treys in the 4th Q as the Wizards improved to 7-26 on the road after defeating the Lakers at Staples […]

NBA Awards – 2/6/13

February 6, 2013

Tuesday Action…Lakers: Even Amid Wins, Drama Continues The Lakers went into Brooklyn and got their 3rd straight road win 92-83, matching their best road streak of the season, but of course, it’s the Lakers, so there’s plenty of backstory and drama to go with the win. Artest was suspended for this game, Dwight sat out his 3rd straight, and […]

Tuesday Night Action In their last 7 games, the Miami Heat have been quite poor, losing 4 games by an average of 11.5 pts, including a 10 point loss to Indy last night, 87-77. The 3 wins are against some of the drecks of the league – Washington, Orlando, & Dallas. They were out-rebounded by the Pacers 55-36 after being […]

Laker Woes Continue…          The headline game of the NBA’s 3-game schedule last night was of course, Lakers at Knicks. As the game started, Charles Barkley had a funny but very truthful quote…”D’Antoni doesn’t need to worry about which Laker team’s gonna show up. They’re gonna be old & slow every time.” […]

Tues Night Headlines 1) Lakers Suck…Again – Another game, another loss, their 5th in the last 6 gms. Mostly the same story – unbalanced offense, major defensive lapses, and completely dominated at the PG position – this time by the returning Kyrie Irving, who missed the last 11 games (finger) but was eager to take the […]

Laker Troubles

November 9, 2012

The Lakers Think of the full spectrum of NBA players ranked on a scale of 0 to 100…96-100 being superstar, future Hall of Famers in their prime (think LeBron, Durant, Rondo right now), and 0-10 as either has-beens barely hanging on or fringe 12th man/D-League talents. Most rosters have a mix of guys between 30-75 […]

The Jerry West Award — OKC’s  Russell Westbrook  —  27 pts, 7 rebs, 9 asst, 6 FTM, 2 stl, 0 blk, 1 trey, and 10-15 shooting…Surprisingly, this is only Westy’s 2nd 20/5/5 game in his last 12. Not surprisingly, it came against an old, tired Laker squad that played a gm 4 in Den, gm 5 in L.A., gm 6 in Den, gm 7 in L.A., then flew to OKC to […]
