Discussion in 'Pistons and NBA' started by dba, Oct 28, 2009.
I doubt the Knicks would get past the ECF.
Spurs don't have a prayer. They're a regular season team this year. High scoring, mediocre defense.
JaVale McGee had a triple double in Washingtons loss against Chicago - 12 rebounds, 12 blocked shots (!) and 11 points. He was only 9 assists from a quadruple double.
Looks like he's back in form. Maybe it's time to put him back in my fantasy rotation. For some reason Flip Saunders has some sort of issue with the guy and his playing time had been suffering lately. I don't know why - the guy is an above-average rebounder and a blocks machine.
The 12 blocks is very impressive, but the way he got to the triple double is not:

Still, he's an athletic 7 footer, only 23 years old and is a Michigan boy. Wouldn't mind seeing him in a Pistons uniform one day.
You know Joe hates to sign players from Michigan...(The Mateen rule) but if Javale's mother Pam McGee plants a kiss on Joe the way she did on Dr. J at the alstar game then maybe Joe would consider him...
As most NBA announcers say..."very impressive" win by the Thunder over the Heat tonight. 96-85
Heat thought after beating the top two teams in the west >Lakers and Spurs, that they would have no trouble with the young up and coming Thunder...ooops...
The big crybaby three shot 21-59 from the field for 61 pts and really shot the ball bad in the second half and are now 4 games behind the Bulls and Celtics.
And oh by the way, the Denver Melloless won again, this time on the road in the ATL beating them down 102-87. Spelcheck returned from his injury to score 15 pts and the Hawks held JR Smith in check only allowing him to get off 5 three balls (he made 3 and scored 15 pts too) They are 11-2 since shipping melo and Cbill to the big apple
I think that Lawson and Felton means that the Nuggs are the best team in the league at the PG spot. These guys are double trouble.
Wonder where did George Karl find the minutes for his guards ?
He knows how to call a TO and adjust and not have starters play for 9-10 minutes before he pulls them....
I never thought I'd like the Nuggets more as a team once Billups left. A Nuggs-Spurs WCF would be wonderful.
I feel the same way. I'm rooting for them because they were on the non superstar side of the trade. They have some real defenders and some hungry, low ego players on the team. Plus they are new, so it will be fun if they can build some real momentum at the right now.
I doubt anyone wants to play them in the playoffs right now. The Spurs and Lakers are vulnerable to a good defensive team.
Maybe this years' 2004 Pistons?
And you think we complain???
You have wonder how the Cavs forum fans are getting through this season, when for the second time this season they lose by more than 40 points....
The Blazers beat the Cavs last night 111-70 ....41 pts....remember they loss to the Lakers by 55 back in January......of course the Cavs did strike a little revenge prior to the allstar game knocking out both LA teams, but I think they have only mustered one win since.
With Dan Gilberts luck lately, they will probably lose out on the number one pick when its time to drop the lotto balls
I wish Chauncey was still here in Denver but I'm kinda excited to be on the Nuggs bandwagon now that Melo is gone. I wouldn't call myself an actual fan but they've become "watchable" for me. I tend to root for 'em when they're not playing the Pistons.
I'm pullin' for either the Spurs of Nuggets to come outta the West and beat whoever reps the East.
I'm sure the Spurs and Lakers aren't too stressed about a playing a team they are vastly superior to.
I get the love for the Nuggets being the "team without a superstar", but they aren't a threat to any contender in the playoffs other than the Mavericks. They're capable of giving you a competitive series, but that's about it.
I just hope you eat those words come late May
Nuggs have beat some pretty good teams this year:
Celtics, Mavs, Blazers, Heat, Thunder, Magic, Suns, Knicks, Pistons, Lakers.
and they're playing better since the trade.
According to SRS, it's Spurs, Lakers, Nuggs in the 1-2-3 spot in the West.
Heat-Bulls-Celts in the same spots in the East.
Sidenote: everybody is a threat to the Mavericks.
Delfino with 30 points and 11 rebounds in a win over the Knicks tonight!
He only attempted 13 shots.
Billups played well too, but fouled out. The Knicks' D is lacking... no surprise.
