    I was trying to buy League Pass last night to watch games, but there was no link.

    Apparently the games are on NBATV.

    Here is a web feed that will probably go down at some point.

    I remember in the good old days when @Pwn Toney@Pwn Toney, @Caliban@Caliban and @LA Dre@LA Dre would report on the games live if they were there in Vegas.

    Yep I am watching the Magic and Pacers now on NBA TV and Pistons and Thunder come on at 2 (5 EDT).

    I am not going down to Vegas until 7/15 and I think the SL will be over then.

    Benny J, Ellenson and Kennard is looking good to start the game. This is turning into a bloodbath.

    I like Rick Kamla.

    First quarter in the books with Pistons up 28-20 and Ellenson wearing Rip mask leading the way 12 points.

    Pistons shot over 55% from the floor

    Lorenzo Brown looking good too.

    SJ looking fit with his trademark hair do...sitting on the bench cheering on the newbies..


    Pistons get a point for winning the first quarter

    After giving up an 12-0 run to allow the Thunder to take their first lead with about 2 mins left, the Pistons had their own 8-0 lead to go up by seven only to see the Thunder steal a victory because of a botch FT call by the officials and the Pistons lost 92-91. No argument here as the Pistons let the Thunder steal it when they lead through out the game and played poorly down the stretch just like the A team. A dead ball foul by the Pistons turned into 2 FT's instead of one.....and too many three ball attempts by the young Pistons.

    Ellenson lead the Pistons with 21 pts and Kennard had 16

    What happened in the last 10 seconds? It looks like we were up 4.

    We folded. It was terrible to watch.

    Ellenson is still too light in the pants to play regular minutes. You can see his potential, but he's too light, too weak and tentative right now.

    The new kid looked ok. Missed a bunch of shots early, but he found his rhythm. I expect him to be better the next game.

    Man I like Lorenzo Brown. We need him on the team I think. Hollis Thompson (Sixers) was on our squad and played well. He's a generic body at forward but you could see today he was an NBA player and many of the other guys on the court were not.

    If I could only have 1 guy going into the playoffs, I'd take Thompson over Ellenson right now.

    I saw some nice highlights of Eric Moreland. Could he be our 3rd string center? We need someone that will accept the NBA minimum.

    Moreland was ok. He missed some plays and he's not as big as I would like for a backup center.

    He does have a high motor and plays physical D. Sort of a very poor man's Ben Wallace.

    They are the first round picks so they are the in spot light to perform and have to take the shots to show they are worthy....They taken the same number of shots (27) and played the most minutes,(just over 58).

    The shooting % of Moreland looks good 82% from the floor and 78% from the FT.

    Bup Bup made his season debut with 15 points but his team fell to 0-2.

    RECAP:

    TRILOGY 50, 3-HEADED MONSTERS 37
    FULL STATS

    James White (7 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists) opened the scoring Sunday with a 3-pointer and Trilogy never looked back. They jumped out to a 12-4 lead and went into halftime with a 25-9 lead. The 3-Headed Monsters mounted a slight comeback and actually outscored Trilogy in the second half. 3-HM’s Rashard Lewis scored 17, while Eddie Basden added 8 points and 8 rebounds and Kwame Brown had 6 points, 6 rebounds and a pair of assists, but it wasn’t enough. Trilogy maintained a double-digit lead behind Harrington’s 20 points and 7 rebounds and Rashad McCants’ 13 points.

    Trilogy is 2-0. The 3-Headed Monsters are 1-1.



    POWER 50, KILLER 3s 45
    FULL STATS

    Power joined Trilogy as the only other 2-0 squad after two weeks of BIG3 play, but it wasn’t easy. The biggest hurdle was the BIG3 debut of Killer 3s captain Chauncey Billups, who missed last week’s game but showed up in Charlotte with a vengeance. Billups, who finished with 15 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists, hit one of his two 4-pointers to open the second half and give the Killer 3s a 33-24 lead. The score was 39-26 when DeShawn Stevenson hit a 3-pointer that started an 11-0 run for Power. Paul McPherson’s dunk tied it at 41, and Power pulled away from there. Cuttino Mobley’s 2-point free throw closed it out.

    Mobley led all scorers with 23. McPherson had 10 points and 7 rebounds. Stevenson had 15, including three 3-pointers. Stephen Jackson led the Killer 3s (0-2) with 18 points. Reggue Evans had 8 points and 6 rebounds.

    Power is 2-0, while the Killer 3s are 0-2.



    BALL HOGS 50, TRI-STATE 44
    FULL STATS

    Tri-State jumped out to leads of 10-2 and 17-5, led by Mike James (17 points) and Bonzi Wells (11 points, 7 rebounds). They led by 10 at halftime and built up to a 15-point lead in the second half before the Ball Hogs stormed back. Trailing 44-39, the Ball Hogs scored the last 11 points of the game. Rasual Butler, who scored 19 points, tied the game at 44 with one of his three 3-pointers. A Butler dunk followed, giving the Ball Hogs their first lead of the game. Derrick Byars, who finished with 19 points and 7 rebounds, hit a 3-pointer to close the game.

    The Ball Hogs are 1-1. Tri-State is 0-2.



    GHOST BALLERS 50, 3’S COMPANY 45
    FULL STATS

    Like the Ball Hogs, the Ghost Ballers also overcame a 10-point halftime deficit. After a back-and-forth start to the game, Al Thornton (11 points, 4 rebounds) hit a 3-pointer that gave 3’s Company a 28-18 halftime edge. Led by DerMarr Johnson (14 points, 8 rebounds) and Andre Owens (14, 7), 3’s Company maintained a 36-26 lead midway through the second half. That’s when the Ghost Ballers got moving with back-to-back 3-pointers by Mo Evans (7 points, 6 rebounds) and Mike Bibby (team-best 20 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists). After a little more back-and-forth, a Thornton dunk gave 3’s Company a 45-40 lead – but then Ivan Johnson took control and the Ghost Ballers scored the last 10 points of the game.

    Johnson slammed home three straight dunks, one of which drew a Thornton foul and resulted in a 3-point play. Up 47-45, Johnson pulled down a defensive rebound and Bibby was fouled after making a dunk. The made free throw gave Ghost Ballers the win.

    The Ghost Ballers and 3’s Company are both 1-1.



    Next up for the BIG3: Week 3 at the Bok Center in Tulsa, Okla. Trilogy looks to remain undefeated when they face Allen Iverson’s 3’s Company, and Harrington feels pretty good about his squad.

    “Our guys made shots today,” said Harrington. “When you’re making jump shots you’re going to be really tough to beat. Our guys made a couple of tough ones and were able to get that big lead.”

    At 2-0, Harrington feels good about calling his team one of the early favorites to win the first-ever BIG3 championship – though he also thinks one of the 0-2 teams might be just as dangerous.

    “I think at this stage it’s probably us and the Killer 3s,” he said. “Even though they’re 0-2, they’ve got Chauncey back. It might take another game for him to get back into rhythm, but they should be tough to beat.”

    WEEK 2 RECAP: CHARLOTTE

    Chauncey was 2-for-5 from 4-point land.
