My mistake there, Steve, forgot to rub my eyes. OKC was having some troubles early on but somehow managed to get the wins coming in fast. Denver is a surprise. Missed the playoffs last season and now playing like a well oiled machine with the 7 footer Jokic doing the damage.
If the Lakers keep winning, and the Celtics keep winning, then we might see a Celtics Lakers 'infinity' war yet again. The biggest drama of all time, Kyrie vs LeBron. How Hollywoody can it get, Uncle Drew is already Hollywood material.
Lakers playing the 2nd of back to back games having blown a 15 point lead yesterday to the Spurs and lose by 13. Today in memphis even without Brandon Ingram and Rondo they are looking formidable and lead at the half 63-40
Meanwhile, the Celtics unloaded 133 points en route to a 56-point victory over the Bulls. Their offense is slowly picking up the last 4 games and those same shots that missed early this season are now dropping in like rain. And Smart, who couldn't buy baskets then as a sub, is draining his shots as a starter. Baring any serious injuries, this team will do very well in if they play like this. Raptors vs Bucks tomorrow and one of them will add another L in the loss column for us C's to climb up.
How about Luka Doncic of the Mavs, what a great trade it's turning out of draft day. He single-handedly led the Mavs in the late 4th with 11 straight points in a victory over the Rockets. This guy is only 19, is already bulky and big, can dribble, drive and shoot from in and out. What a guy.
The west is beginning to take shape with the GSW back on top hard to believe that not only are the Lakers in the top tier of the west BUT I remain miffed as to what is going in in Houston. Has D’Antonis run and gun offense caught up with him again. Will he remain as coach. Chris Paul May be destined to never win that ring. He came close last year except for the ham string injury.
