    The Raptors got triple doubled. I wasn't able to watch the game, but looking at the box score, I can only shake my head at the offence of Carroll and Patterson.

    24pts 16 dimes 10 boards for QuestBrook because this man is on a mission to be MVP.
    He 3 and a half games back from being a 4 seed. If he can pull that off, they got to give it to him 100%

    smh I never seen a season like this.

    Nope let's give it to Harden or Kawhi because they are in systems that allow them to be great, rather than the guy who is single-handedly making his team a competitor.

    Westbrook is on some '01 Iverson shit right now.

    I can't agree with that.

    AI took his team to the Finals AND stole a game from Prime Shaq and Kobe, and he did it IN A CAVE... WITH A BOX OF SCRAP.

    Can't contest that as of yet. But if OKC head to the finals.....BOY!

    He also managed to outlast Vince that year too. And Vince was playing out of his mind that year and series.

    So Rubio is scoring well of a sudden with all those midrange jumpers hitting lately, but Wiggins is shooting like crap the last couple of games ... The Wolves still have so much potential with all that talent. I lost my bet with them making the playoffs though.
    SFA 4 needs to be made ...

    This is literally the most efficient year in the history of the NBA. Lowest turnover %, highest EFG%/TS%

    They didn't track EFG back then.

    eFG% = (FGM + (0.5 x 3PTM)) / FGA

    if someone has 0 3PTM(like before the 3point line existed), their EFG% = FG%

    It's not something you need to "track" it just exists.

    http://www.basketball-reference.com/leagues/NBA_stats.html

    we only have TOV% back to 73-74, but because of how linear the progression of it going down over time is, I think it's safe to assume that people weren't better at holding onto the ball 60 years ago.

    If OKC get the 4th seed how can Westbrook not be MVP?

    Clippers are falling like an anvil, the Jazz are kinda fizzling out right now too.

    P.J. Tucker's energy and attitude is so contagious. He led the team to victory tonight.

    Heat are 7th seed right now but Bucks more than likely will win their game and knock the Heat down to 8th. I think Miami has a great opportunity to go after that 6th seed and matchup with Washington. That would be huge.

    At least the Cleveland version scored more points than there are minutes in the game they played.

    Lakers about to get payback on Basketball Reasons.

    Lonzo Ball looking like Magic Johnson Lite, Luke Walton moved D-Angelo to the 2-Guard spot over the weekend and he got 40 points, Magic And Rob Pelinka just had a meeting with Adam Silver in New York.

    The wheel fate is turning

    Lonzo joining up with Karl Anthony Towns in Minnesota would probably translate to a better team right away though. Definitely something awesome to watch.

    So the Raptors have been playing some good team ball the last couple of games. They got Serge. They got PJ. They will be playing at the ACC. Their opponent..............................the Bulls.

    Will tonight be the night they end the streak???

    Honestly, if they don't win this........

    Waiters might be out 6-8 weeks.

    Now would probably be a good time for Heat to waive Bosh and pick up a serviceable player.
