    I was assuming it was how they outscored Minnesota by 14, but hadn't seen any confirmation one way or another about it.

    Minnesota is getting treated like a stray dog by the NBA. What did they do to get that treatment from Stern and the refs? Rick Adelman is well-respected. The players are decent enough. Flip Saunders is well-respected. I don't see it.

    That does make a difference.

    It would be one thing for Portland to lose at Philly, but to lose at home to the Sixers is unacceptable.

    Some of you may know that the owners of the old ABA St. Louis team have been getting a share of NBA TV money from the ABA teams that merged with the NBA. The NBA has been trying to buy them out over the last several years and now it looks like it's going to happen.

    The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to trade Andrew Bynum and a draft pick to the Chicago Bulls for forward Luol Deng, sources told ESPN.com.

    The deal is expected to be completed on Tuesday morning when the teams have a conference call with the league office.

    Bynum is expected to be released by 5 p.m. on Tuesday before the second half of his $12.3 million contract becomes guaranteed.

    The deal will save the Bulls more than $15 million in salary and luxury taxes, taking them below the salary-cap threshold. In addition, the Cavs will send the Bulls a first round pick owed to them by the Sacramento Kings that is top 10 protected in the next two drafts.

    Keep in mind that Deng will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, but this deal may well get the Cavs into the playoffs.

    As for Bynam, will he get claimed before the Heat have a shot at him?

    LeBron James: "Watch what I do against Washington".

    Nice bulletin board material there, LeBron.

    Washington crushes them from the opening tipoff, leading 43-18 after the 1st Quarter, growing that lead to the 30's before settling for a 17-pt win.

    Awesome to see Greg Oden get into the game tonight and actually score six points. Sad to see his career start out like this but he's only 26 so he could potentially provide something the next few years if he can stay healthy.

    Not to detract from Washington's win, but it's hard to get a grip on the Heat when players are either resting (Wade and Battier) or injured (Chalmers and Anderson).

    The highlight of the night was definitely Oden's return. Even though Oden could be the X-factor in the Heat's quest to repeat, I cannot help but root for the guy.

    Wade was terrible. James played well, of course. Oden will be interesting.

    James played well once the game was decided. He played awful the first half. As a Pacers fan I look forward to playing them this year. Especially if they hold onto home court which they should

    Rockets' point totals by quarter from last night's game with the Thunder. 32-41-10-9. That is funny.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    That was ugly.

    It's hard to believe that a team with Harden and Howard would have such a hard time scoring within a half-court set.

    Of their 82 shots, they took all but four of them either in the paint, or from 24 feet and beyond. Guess they've never heard of a mid-range shot. Harden's flopping never got him to the line yesterday, either. Durant's did, though.

    Re: 2013 NBA Season

    ...and it begins tonight for the Trail Blazers...

    Four dreaded Cities in five nights.

    San Antonio tonight, Dallas tomorrow, Houston Monday, and OKC Tuesday.

    ...a combined 61-19 record at home for those teams.

    I don't recall in my lifetime seeing a road-trip this difficult.

    Their best shots of winning are the San Antonio and Dallas games. They've dominated the Spurs for years with Aldridge dominating Duncan, and Aldridge has great games in his hometown of Dallas. Houston has too much size vs Portland, while OKC is a beast at home vs the Blazers with or without Westbrook. Reserve Thomas Robinson has began playing well lately after getting about 8 DNP's in a row. If he can continue his improved play, he'll be instrumental vs his former team, the Rockets, as he's been satisfying the need for a backup big-man to Aldridge that this team badly needs.

    Predicting 2-2.

    They got the first two in Texas, San Antonio (by 9) and Dallas (coasted to a 16-pt win), as expected, but now comes the hard part...trying to get by either of Houston or Oklahoma City, two teams they do not match up well against in the frontcourt.
