Just checked their roster...Jordan no Poole D, Kuzma, and a euro big.....i don't think they can defend a pillow
Exactly

I've only been doing some box score capping(other than any opening night loss)so far but that's one of my initial impressions

nba thoughts

look at the difference in fight and defensive side of the floor between the rockets/blazers and grizzlies/wizards.......the latter are 2 worst in league. grizzlies are winless and have 0 fight vs bad teams to boot - thats a fade signal. I think charlotte may not be far behind; and for a team with a lack of shooters hornets is an over team right now. Rockets/blazers scrappy, defensive head coaches, will fight in good spots and good under teams imo.

bucks early on are going to be very inconsistent and lay big no shows and eggs - 2nd no show blowout already. am not sure about their coach. after last no show they demolished the heat of note.

celtics/warriors look like wagons. i believe the suns are too - more defensive this year and beal, booker, durant is most dominant 3some in league with requisite shooters like gordon......don't see how the spurs are big enough dogs to cover thursday after suns blew a lead. we saw what they did after losing that huge lead vs the lakers.

nuggets are not a wagon yet and would tread careful - not covering vs a shit memphis team, or the jazz, blown out tonight.

knicks/cavs under might need to go on the auto list.

hawks are coming out cold first half and dominating 2nd half; warriors 3rd quarter has been money so far.
 
36-32 ytd

magic -1 @ jazz - magic power rated higher, and off 2 losses/jazz off huge win, magic will want to end west coast trip with a W
Suns -9 vs spurs - Far superior team, with revenge from last game, add devin booker
pelicans -5 vs detroit - pelicans superior team

picking way to many games right now but trying to get a read on the league - nothing very confident

nets/bulls u 222 - bulls under team 1-4 expecting strong effort; nets under roster
nuggets -5.5 - bounceback spot for denver after blowout, dallas feels overrated and due for a loss
blazers/grizz u 220 - blazers under team and grizz *should max defend tnite tho they usually don't
blazes 3.5 - grizz spot but hasn't mattered; blazers better team imo
warriors/thunder u 226 - gs defense much better ytd and thunder in strong effort spot
heat -8.5 vs wizards - riding the fade wizards and over train
heat/wizards o 225.5

lean
mavs nuggets over - don't believe in dallas d
warriors -6 - saw what happened when denver played @ okc

Great notes.

Very late start for myself, going to slowly get into the season.

Valuable info.
 
47-39 ytd

tracking the spurs today - those 2 wins wins in phoenix for a young team with wemby could be franchise changing - talking about down 20 to suns in game 1 and came back and won; then literally played next game same location at phoenix again, super rare, against phx with big revenge added booker and beat them.

spurs have pieces now; wemby but vassell is that guy for them defensively and all around - he is injured - but i like mcdermett, osman, kelvin johnson.......raptors spot here but spurs have huge momentum

I know you have a big card here.

Thoughts on total between my boys and the Bucks?

feel detroit is an under team and bucks an over team ; at home especially; i'd play over on it - 124-110 type of game

really like the rookie for detroit thompson - moves great off ball; great defense, does little things to win - looks like young kobe too body movement combined with the afro

looks like clv in 8 games and non clv in 9; biggest 2 being hornets down to 2.5 and mavs total steamed up to 225.5.......we will see - hornets last 2 games have actually played much better - beat pacers and gave mavs a tough game; meanwhile wizards have shown nothing. look like they try hard first quarter and then fold. ..........mavs came out and locked down magic in 2nd half on defense big time; so tells me there is some emphasis over there

I actually had played it Tuesday forgetting about the voting Holiday.

Light 4th but we got it.

Thompson reminds me of Igudoula as a Sixer. Thoughts?

wish i played that game - horrible night in the association for me overall - 4 totals ruined by lopsided blowouts where the losing team just didn't even show up and bulls/suns goes into ot........at this point i am not even sure what the difference in a lean/play is for me when i have a play on most games why didn't i just play detroit o

Iggy comps is nice - exactly same strengths/weaknesses.....iggy was a prime #1 back then scoring if i remember correctly; putting up 40 some nights with no jumpshot

I think thompson is the perfect role player that iggy became - probably a better off ball player then iggy is even today - braun for nuggets and thompson best off ball cutters in the game today IMO. I personally think thompson just has better fluidity to his movement then iggy - idn if he will ever become a #1 or 2 option and i'm not sure thats the goal with him - he's a championship piece - they need another go to guy tho - i'm dissapointed in ivey right now - guy has one of best explosive 2 steps in the nba ; with wade that worked out - it usually does for those guys to be a star

Great stuff.

As far as Ivey goes, tough to tell. Monty basically pushed him to bench this year. He had a fantastic last few months. I'm puzzled. I won't say it's an issue until we see him playing actual minutes.

My guess is Monty is looking for defense out there.

you know prime iggy the initial burst reminds me more of ivey actually - with thompson - he's an incredible athlete - and i may be wrong but i am seeing it more near the rim and in transition - so that may limit his isolation upside star potential without a J

just looked at the houston boxscore - no sign of his brother yet
