    Westbrook will miss 3 games vs the Blazers, 2 vs the Rockets, 1 vs the Heat, 1 vs the Spurs, and 1 vs the Warriors. There's some OKC losses in the near future.

    Re: 2013 NBA Season

    The dirty play of Mario Chalmers is going to start costing him.

    Only a third of the way into the NBA season and Mario Chalmers has already maxed out the NBA's "allowed" allotment of Flagrant Fouls. He now has five points against him in the NBA's Flagrant Foul penalty system after a too aggressive boxout against DeMarcus Cousins last night. His next "point" is going to cost him a full-game check and one-game suspension. His next two points will cost him two game checks and a two-game suspension. A Flagrant Foul is one point while a Flagrant-2 Foul ("unnecessary and excessive contact") is two points.

    Guess Chris Anderson will have to start being the "assigned" guy to get Flagrant Fouls for a while.

    Bosh was awesome....he was on fire....15 buckets (on 26 shots), including 3 for 3 from long-range. His last shot was money from about 30 feet. He came into the game shooting only .313 on three's.

    Both teams played some bad basketball, but Bosh was tremendous.

    One thing to watch will be the emergence of the #3 team in the East.

    Some talented teams in Cleveland, Detroit, Atlanta and Toronto....one of those will separate themselves.

    Never heard of James Dolan ("I need more power") before. Now I know why.

    I just wish Anthony Davis was playing his junior year in college

    Can you imagine that?

    27 points, 12 boards,5 blocks vs Portland last night. If he can stay healthy, he'll be so fun to watch

    He blocked a couple LeMarcus turnaround jumpers. That is almost impossible to do.

    He effected shots all night long.

    As great as Lillard is, Davis is the best player from that draft.

    Meyers Leonard having to play is really exposing Portland's lack of depth. Don't know if they are trying to get him playing time before the trade deadline to determine value so they can get a veteran big man to come off the bench, or what exactly they are trying to do, but Meyers Leonard is not ready to play minutes in the NBA. Stotts said it is for spacing purposes on Offense, but he's so clueless on both defense and offense, that it's hard to understand justifying any purpose for him to be on the floor.

    Miami showed without LeBron in the lineup that when they need to play Defense to win a game, they can do it at the right moments. They did that in the 4th Quarter vs the Blazers.

    The Blazers are showing another weakness that was on full display during that 4th quarter against Miami and in the Pelicans game....Lillard, Batum, Matthews and the rest of the team can't handle in-your-face defense

    The Blazers also rely too much on Lopez for their Defense. Freeland is not bad at all on Defense and definitely good enough, but whenever they try to rest Aldridge, whose Defense has been atrocious lately, Aldridge's replacement is nothing more than a statue that gets in the way of every other Blazer while he's out there.


    And, yes....the Wolves got screwed last night by the refs. They've been playing better and then they get that thrown at them. Hard to continue to come back from disappointment all the time.

    The Pelicans will make the playoffs, as was predicted in the pre-season by many.

    Can't believe I said Cleveland and Detroit would compete for the #3 seed. While full of talent, they have too many major issues (Mo Cheeks is one major obstacle for any team) to be competing for the #3 seed.

    The fiasco known as Andrew Bynum is strange as well, but at least his contract is not fully guaranteed. I don't know if it's wise for Cleveland to trade him for Psu Gasol's contract, but it might not be a bad idea for a team that needs a playoff berth after several years out of them

    Pull the trigger, Cleveland, and don't look back. The Cavs desperately need someone to help take the offensive pressure off of K.I.

    On a related note, The Nets may well end up ruing the day that they turned down a proposed Lopez for Gasol swap.

    Thoughts on other recent trades:

    * IMHO, the Kings gave up way too much for what amounts to, essentially, Rudy Gay. The Raptors made out like bandits, and may very well win the Atlantic -- not exactly a difficult feat, I know.

    * The acquisition of Luc Mbah a Moute -- one of the league's best defenders -- by the T-Wolves in exchange for Derrick Williams is a much sounder deal for the Wolves than most realize. That stated, considering the fact that Derrick Williams was, once, the second pick in the draft ('11) and from the pure talent standpoint, the Kings appear to come out on top, the T-Wolves should have demanded, along with Mbah a Moute, at least a second round pick.

    Then again, as I stated previously, the T-Wolves desperately need Budinger to return and for Gorgui Dieng to assume a more prominant role in the rotation.

    Bad news for the Hawks.

    Report: Al Horford to have surgery on torn pectoral, done for season.

    "Waiting for Gorgui Dieng" sounds like a Paul Thomas Anderson movie.

    Kyrie Irving is hurt again. I saw one twitter feed speculating they are checking fora torn ACL.

    This story confirms an MRI but does not guess at what the injury is.
