2021 NBA - 1st Half


Recommended Posts

Well, yeah, obviously.

Speaking of bad decisions it sure sounds like the NBA is going ahead with the all-star game and will probably do a 3-point contest and dunk contest as well.

Wichita State's own Fred VanVleet went for 54, setting records for both the Raptors and for undrafted players.

It's a damn shame it couldn't have happened in front of a crowd.

Kevin Durant was going to sit out today's game because of "health and safety protocols" (he's been exposed), but then someone cleared him, and he was on the bench and got into the game vs. the Raptors.  

30 minutes later....

Rose has played really well in limited minutes in Detroit. Last year, his per 36 libe was very similar to his MVP season, and he's only a little less productive so far this year. The Pistons are terrible, and not really trying to win games this year. A trade makes sense for both teams.

Rose absolutely could come off the bench and provide at least decent playmaking and scoring, and surrounded by better talent his efficiency and similar numbers would like bounce back up some. I can totally see a contender that needs a backup point guard sending something to Detroit for him.

Why in God's name the Knicks are the reported leader in the race for him is beyond me.

What's up with NBA Center Court's music? I know they're using a generic library but it's like WWF Raw + SportsCenter '98 specials. Good game between the Bucks and Nuggets but Milwaukee pulling away in the 4th.

Was looking at Steph's usage rate and it was unsurprisingly highest for the time he did play last year but this year is also behind 2015-16. He's often fades in the playoffs and if they make it this year that'll be a real concern.

Watched the fourth quarter of that game and I thought of Carlton throwing up the shot in Fresh Prince when Draymond did that thing that he did last night. 

As for the Lowry move, that would make sense for both teams. He's going to give you everything he's got (even if it often takes playing like shit one game in the playoffs to get redemption mode activated) and it would be interesting to see what the famed Heat conditioning coaches could get out of him. Maybe they can extend his career.

Miami escaped with a W tonight.  

The Knicks are building something.  I'm not going to say they're good yet, but they're not terrible.

Mike Breen is perfectly fine yet totally boring. Can you imagine Kevin Harlan calling that?  That was a lot.

 
Ew, Davis apparently has swelling in his achilles...

The Cavs will no longer be playing Andre Drummond and are now working to trade him before the deadline.

He will remain with the team but will longer be active for games

No discussions about a buyout have taken place.... yet

Blake Griffin is also going to be sitting out in Detroit while they work out his future with the team.  Hard to imagine that contract getting traded without Detroit putting in significant other assets so a buyout seems more likely.

Anthony Davis has a calf strain - will miss 2-3 weeks and then be reevaluated

So basically he is out through the All Star Break

Oh and speaking of the All Star Break - the league will now resume on March 10 (one day earlier than originally planned)

The assumption is that all teams playing on that day will be the ones with no all stars (or 1 max)

Season still going well

Spurs just had 4 players test positive - their next 3 games have been postponed 

And since their last game was against the Hornets - Charlotte has had their next 2 games postponed as the team undergoes contact tracing
