NBA Thread

PostTue Dec 25, 2012 10:50 am

so since the last one is now lost in the big bad world thought i might aswell start a thread. Basically a place for myself, LTS and Powlay to discuss the NBA as nobody else seems to like it!

Been a good season so far, Knicks looking good under Woodson. The Lakers have been a soap opera all season, OKC have been smashing it up and the Clippers have gone from potential to genuine contenders. And then today we get a triple header of live games on ESPN!

Anyone keeping up with it still? Haven't done for the last month or so with highlights or games, been looking at the standings now and then - Knicks doing really well, Lakers still awful!

Will get back into in new year in the build up to the playoffs

LAC are absolutely flying at the minute, won their 15th on the bounce yesterday!

Knicks looking good under Woodson. Chandler is shooting a ridiculous figure and getting double doubles regularly, Smith is coming off the bench with class numbers (Lee, watch his buzzer beater again Suns from Boxing Day, class shot) and Melo has upped his game. Now sure why they are so persistant with Brewer though, he regularly gets no points, assists or rebounds...what does he do?!

Clippers streat ended at 17

Its all looking fairly as expected at the moment, Lebron is just a beast, he gets better and better with every game

If you get chance try and watch the alley oop dunk from JR Smith against Spurs last night, quality!

Early in the season i managed to jump on LAC to win their division at odds of 2.75 managed to get £77.50 on it before the odds flew down.

They're up by 4 games on GSW and the lakers are like 10.5 games behind so im ratherpleased with that.

I couldnt get anyone to go with me so didnt get tickets

Glad its on Sky, going to show couple of live games a week which is good, better than ESPN which shows 1 game every few weeks

Knicks struggling as of late, really missing Felton. If anyone can tell me what Ronnie Brewer does i would love to hear it

Powlat, you might aswell start planning what to spend your winnings on because that is a shoe in

What do we reckon to Lakers...play offs or not? It would take one hell of a run to make them

London live game tonight.Gutted i am not there, ce la vie!

Lebron becomes the youngest to get to 20,000 points. Dont think that surprises anyone!

Lets go Knicks! Looking forward to seeing Brewer in action, i know nothing about him and he doesnt get flashy figures but is clearly well rated. Shumpert back from injury too

I just signed up for half price SkySports & SkyMovies for 3months on virginmedia (for existing customers) so will watch any NBA that's on

Just in time for All Star weekend this weekend B)

Includes all SkySports but tbh I would trade 3,4 + F1 for ESPN, which it doesn't include :(

The sky coverage is pretty good, not as many adverts as ESPN with some studio talk during time outs

James is on an absolute rampage at moment, dropping 30 points plus every game. The Heat are flying, absolutely destroyed OKC last night as did the Clippers against the Lakers

Really hope the Lakers miss out on play offs, hate Bryant and Howard with their pure arrogance

Haven't seen anywhere near as much of it is I would have liked this season, will definitely be more into it once the play-offs start

I loved Howard at Magic, haven't seen hardly any Lakers highlights this year but looked at the tables the other day and their record is attrocious - honestly thought they were going to be one of the best teams this year at the start

Just checked listings there and All Star game is on Sky Sports 2 from 00.00 Sunday night, so will be TiVo-ing that and watch next week

They have self imploded massively, they brought in D'Antoni when everyone wanted Jackson. Gasol is out for 6 weeks, Kobe and Howard have been digging at each other, its a complete mess. Kobe has had two of his worst performances of his career in the past two games, got 4 points against Phoenix and although for a double double last night gave away loads of turnovers. Think his rating was -35

Great moment in All Star game, Chris Paul smiling and laughing just puts the dribble straight between Bosh's legs and gets the bucket, next possesion its given straight to Tony Parker who then embarresses Bosh again while laughing along with the bench so Bosh just fouls him. Fool me once...

Most exciting team this season

Knicks have gone missing on this west coast trip. None of the games have been close and they show they can rarely compete without Anthony, who might not be back for a while

Lakers are absolutely flying at the moment. Even though Kobe only played a quarter last night to still get the victory was a great result, hitting form at the right time

And a special mention for Ricky Rubio, who is on fire at the moment. Easily one of the most exciting players in the league

There's a programme on Sky Sports 3 just called NBA Basketball, it shows the live games from the weekend but completely stripped down - so you see the full 48mins but no time outs, stoppages etc - the show is on two hours and shows two full games

Just seen Knicks 125-120 Thunder, absolutely class game - Lakers v Clippers up next

So the play offs are set. Who do we reckon

Heat vs Bucks - Miami in 4 - Whitewash
Knicks vs Celtics - Knicks in 6 - Knicks to edge it
Pacers vs Hawks - Pacers in 5
Nets vs Bulls - Bulls in 5

OKC vs Rockets - OKC in 5
Spurs vs Lakers - Lakers! in 6
Nuggets vs Warriors - Nuggets in 6 - Nuggets having home court advantage is huge for them
Clippers vs Grizzlies - Grizzlies in 7 - Too close to predict

Some great matches there. Knicks Celtics will be a very heated series, and you would think Celtics will try to use the horrific incident this week as an added incentive for their fans. I can see the Lakers causing a big shock, Tony Parkers been struggling with injuries lately and Ginobilli isnt going to be fully fit. LAL are finding a good formula with Gasol and Howard at the moment, can see them sneaking it. I cant wait!
