Biedriens and J.R Smith were AWESOME!
Well, just one night after the bizarre occurrence of Ben Wallace grabbing zero rebounds in 20 minutes, we get Stephon Marbury playing 19 minutes and taking ZERO SHOTS--not a single attempt, either from the field or from the line! Now that's not something we're likely to see again. I'm pretty confident in guessing that he's never played a single game in his entire life without scoring any points, and here he went further by not even attempting a single shot.
Bulls-Knicks tonight was a very weird game, from what little I saw of it. The Bulls were killing them most of the way through, as the Knicks turned it over 26 (!) times, but they somehow mounted a big comeback and had a possession where they were only down 5 in the last two minutes, at which point...they turned it over. Bulls went on to win 106-95, snapping their 6-game losing streak and wrapping up their grueling 7-game road trip. 8 of their next 9 games are at home, so we'll have a better idea of whether they can right the ship or not after they finish that long home stand.

maybe joe should make an enquiry into earl watson?
I think he'd be just as unhappy here. maybe moreso.
true, but flips style might be just his thing, and he should be good enough to beat out flip murray for minutes. but it does sound like he wants to start.
After listening to my Seattle friend defend Ridnour and defame Watson, I have been watching Earl a little closer the last few games. Honestly, I don't think he's very good.
2 years ago he was considered one of the top 5 defensive point guards in the league.
Not sure what happened. The Sonics don't really play D, and Earl is no exception.
Maybe the right system or coach could restore him to his former glory. If his former glory is defense, I'm not sure Flip would be the coach to do that.
"Meanwhile, the Sonics are contemplating trading Watson, who earlier this season said it might be better if he plays elsewhere because he is not suited to play 15 or 20 minutes a night on an inconsistent basis.
Watson is shooting a career-low 29.7 percent from the field and 24.4 percent from 3-point range, and he has been highly critical of Hill."
yeah his shot has been off, i know, i had him in fantasy and promptly dropped him.
maybe he just needs a fresh start. but i kind of suggested this before i thought too much about it.
he might not work out here.
Wow, nice stat line from Fred Jones tonight.
Well, at least he got a steal! hahaha
yah, i was gonna drop him for anthony parker (micro did this in the sleeper league), but that guy didn't do anything either. at least he didn't hurt us in FG% !! heh
Dallas put a beat down on the Raps last night.
Bargnani's games with a 3 pointer streak came to an end.
Jimmy King was just on Jim Rome, and said that he is a Financial Advisor on Wall Street with Merril Lynch. Just FYI.
The Heat got an annoying victory tonight at the buzzer in Memphis. They overcame two cold-blooded 3s by Chucky Atkins in the last two minutes, as Posey hit an insanely lucky turnaround 3 off an inbounds with 1.8 seconds left for a 1-point win. Similar to the Pistons game the other night, Wade had a couple of chances to hit a go-ahead shot in the last minute, but he couldn't connect on them.
Actually, the Heat did deserve some luck right at the end, since they were (very unusually, as we all know) completely screwed by two HORRIBLE calls in the last 30 seconds. Udonis was called for a block on what was very clearly a charge, and then Dorrell Wright was called for a preposterously ticky-tack foul on the perimeter. We all would have been screaming bloody murder if either of those calls had gone against the Pistons in the final seconds of a close game.
Big game for Tyrus Thomas tonight. Ben Wallace has a good game and Tyrus pretty much matched him stat for stat.
LMAO! Now thats funny!
