    Re: NBA 2018-19, part 2: Offense gone wild

    This 6-game road trip for the Blazers (after solid wins at home against MIL, LAC and BOS) sees them with a chance to redeem losses against WAS and LAL, withstand MIL trying to redeem their loss, and the first meeting against GSW. Every Night this year is a challenge and Portland really seems focused at taking things one game at a time. It's a cliche, but it's really difficult to do. They are all on the same page.

    And they had to play Lou Williams.

    For the second consecutive overtime game, reliable reserve Lou Williams (25 points, six assists) delivered the exclamation points he’s known for, scoring his team’s last 10 points, including sinking all three free throws he was awarded after he was fouled on a shot from deep with 13.4 seconds left.

    Against the surging Bucks on Saturday, his floater with 0.3 seconds left gave the Clippers (now 8-5) the victory.

    In both contests, Williams hadn’t been hot – until he was. Entering overtime, he’d made only three of his 16 attempts from the floor, including missing a 20-footer with 5.6 seconds left in regulation, when the score was frozen at 106-106.

    Klay Thompson’s 3-pointer with 1:27 left had tied it at 106, erasing the Clippers’ game-long lead and capping a 19-5 run to end regulation – to the delight of a large and vocal contingent of Warriors fans in the building.

    After Andre Iguodala’s 3-pointer gave the Warriors (11-3) a 109-106 lead to start overtime, Williams made sure the home team’s fans had reason to celebrate, steering the Clippers to another statement victory against one of the NBA’s elite teams.

    Clippers lead the league in bench points, I believe.

    Big win for Utah tonight against a very good Memphis club.

    Sacramento wins another game. .500 is a heck of a goal for them this year.


    Minnesota dumped Butler, but you have to wonder what the culture is like there right now.

    OKC seems a lock for a Top-4 seed.

    Harden needs to fire up 25+ shots per night.
    The west is such a logjam. There's 12 teams fighting for 8 spots, 13 if the Wolves go on a post-Butler run. And Dallas doesn't absolutely suck.

    The only safe teams are Golden State and Portland. They will make the playoffs. Everyone else is in the scrum. Four hood teams aren't going to make it. Trades are going to make a huge difference this season. Someone's going to get Spencer Dinwiddie or Nikola Vucevich and vault into safety.

    How dumb was Magic Johnson and the Lakers to just set Julius Randle free? The Pelicans got quite a bargain.

    Trade idea: TJ Warren for Markelle Fultz

    Warren's developed 3-point range. The Sixers need a reliable forward who doesn't chew up much possession time. Fultz would give the Suns back-to-back 1-1 picks. Maybe he could grow with that team. This year is over for them from a competitive standpoint.

    Yes. Though the Blazers are playing well, every single night seems like a heck of a challenge that requires their full attention to pull off a win. It's really difficult to give your full attention for 82 games (this will be James' downfall in L.A.). It's what made Harden's performances the last two seasons remarkable.

    Magic does nothing for me as a G.M. He's completely screwing up a Golden opportunity here: he has a Head Coach who is going to win a Championship and it won't happen as a Laker.

    I maintain my stance that the Warriors will implode from within.


    .............


    Sucks for the Nets and Chris Levert. He's had a phenomenal beginning to his season.

    LeVert should be back before the end of the season. Brooklyn may do some serious selling in the meantime: Spencer Dinwiddie, Joe Harris, Ed Davis, the Manimal.

    How about Ed Davis backing up Gobert?

    Look who's back, back again. Houston's back, tell a friend. That was the best game they have played all season.


    Harden after the game:
    "It's going to take time, but we're getting there. If we keep guarding and defending at a high level our offense will come around. Once we put both together, it's going to get scary."

    Immediately after ditching Carmelo. Shocking.

    He’s on an expiring at $4.4M and can’t be traded until next month, but Utah could just use the Joe Johnson trade exception if the Nets want to save a few bucks.

    Butlers first game with Sixers tonight. I have the full blown NBA League Pass via direct TV but I heard on NBA TV you can get online (not Direct TV) individual games for $6.99 or just get the 4th quarter of the game for just $1.99.

    Harden after the game:
    They were back 3 games ago. It will be different. They are missing some of the defense. But, they'll figure out they are best with Harden taking 25+ shots. He didn't have to yesterday, but most days that will be a successful formula.
