Wow, I just tuned into the end of the game. So much for the big win last night vs the Lakers. Suns get fucking killed on the road by the Blazers. Get blown out by 29.

I saw Bridges signed an extension. Good for him and the Suns in getting that done.
Seems like Suns ownership have bigger things to worry about at the moment but with the extensions of Bridges and Shamet, that just seems like a slap in the face to Ayton.

1st half down. So far, so good. They look so much better tonight compared to the other night. Fast breaking, passing, Westbrook is being a facilitator on offense. And most importantly they got some points in the paint.

I liked what Monk did off the bench and surprised what Reeves did.

I was scared for a second when LeBron fell and grabbed his leg after all the leg and ankle problems he had last season. Luckily he shook it off.

Holy shit. Ja Morant is so good.

Melo is putting up some instant offense off the bench,. He just passed Moses Malone for sole position of 9th on the all-time scoring list.

Yeah Westbrook was great. One more turnover and he would have had a triple double.

Holy shit that was a close one. Bazemore fucked up fouling Morant on that 3. Could have cost them the game sending it to OT. That was a fluke Morant missed that 3rd one.

Melo had a great game. Glad they picked him up for cheap. He's still damn good at 37.

Bulls just won a close one against the Raptors. DeRozan had a great game in his return to Toronto.

Bulls pretty much had the game being up 4 with 20 seconds and with possession, but they made a careless pass and the Raptors stole it and cut it to two.

The Bulls are now 4-0 for the first time since 1996-97 when MJ played.

I love my Bulls but they havenít faced real
contenders in these 4 games and they have struggled in 2 of those games. They won tonight in spite of Levine, Lonzo and Vucevic making brain farts in the last 2 minutes. Derozan bailed them out.

The Bulls need a PF and Levine moving the ball instead of constantly killing the shot clock like heís done for most of his career

Awesome game tonight against the Spurs. Russ had 33 and AD had 35. Man, every time AD grabs his knee, my heart sinks. Luckily he shook it off. Easily Russ' best game of the 4., he was driving, passing and even drove in for a big late game dunk.

Malik Monk took a far away 3 from near the center logo that scared me, but it was a huge basket that tied it late in the 4th.

LeBron didn't play because of ankle soreness, but Russ totally made up for his loss.

Thankfully nothing for Mr. Negative to bitch about tonight.

A little surprised that Austin Reaves is getting so much PT, but he hit a few big shots. He's trying to make the most of this time before the injured guys come back.

Another big thing, Billy Mac and Stu were actually on site in San Antonio and not calling the game from the studio.

I swear him and Embiid have what looks like a season ending knee injury every other game. Must be very nerve wracking being a Lakers or Sixers fan in 2021

This is one big reason why Westbrook was important to them, so that the team and offense doesn't tank when Lebron is out.

Retired guard JJ Redick is joining ESPN as an NBA analyst. Not that they really need another NBA analyst. But, maybe he'll be more watchable than Kendrick Perkins.

LeBron is out again with ankle soreness.

But yeah thank God they have Westbrook who can make up for the lack of scoring. That was a big missing piece last season when LeBron was out with a sprained ankle.

A lot of empty seats at this Lakers/Thunder game. I guess an 0-4 rebuilding team isn't really a draw in Oklahoma. Even with Westbrook's return.

Well, of course they were going to blow the 26 point lead and possibly give the Thunder their first win.

Fuck…..two missed threes that could have tied it and Melo’s is an air ball. Oh well. They gave away this game.

Russ got in the face of Baisley for running up the score when he stole the ball with 4 seconds left for an exclamation dunk and got ejected. Thunder were up 4 and could have just dribbled out.

You blew a 26 point lead. You don’t have the right to yell at a kid for being excited for the exclamation dunk.

They totally underestimated this team and let the Thunder get back in.

That Melo 3-point attempt near the end looked god awful. Maybe they should just focus on keeping healthy for the playoffs as we still have a ton of regular season games left to play?

I was wrong a few years ago when I thought OKC couldn't win with Westbrook and Melo playing together

Good 2nd half tonight by the Lakers. Carmelo was on fire and Avery Bradley put in some key minutes and played some good D.

LeBron in his game back was throwing up bricks from the 3-point line. But, luckily everyone else played pretty well. They had a rough 1st half, but did rally and the momentum carried over to the 4th.

The Cavs are no joke. While they collapsed tonight, they have some good young players. If you fall asleep on them, they can beat you. They aren't the terrible team post-LeBron leaving.
