    Some of us only have League Pass Broad Band, which is pretty much garbage, like most of the NBA online, it is poorly implemented and quality control sucks.

    Happy to see the games, but the NBA is failing online, and if they keep this up in a bad economy, they are really going to lose a lot of share and revenue. You can't keep treating your customers like crap, and think they will stay loyal when so many other options exist to capture their disposable income and attention.

    What a wonderful thing the lack of expectations is.

    Good lesson.

    P.S. Did you notice that when Chucky came back into the game in the fourth that he forgot to tie the string that holds up his shorts? He held them up with one hand running up the court but then let go and they were down to about mid thigh level. Fortunately someone knocked the ball out of bounds and he had a chance to hike them up and tie them.

    John Kuester and George Irvine both played for Larry Brown in Denver.

    re-watching the game with the denver feed:

    THE J.R. SMITH MISSED DUNK call:

    " Smith steals .... Nuggets take the lead right here... JRrrrrrr....."
    CLUNK-CLANG-PLOP!
    " missed the dunk...." The Palace Laughs in unison..
    "off balance..."whistle blows...CATCALLS AND WHISTLES:pound::pound::pound:

    Same thing happened to me while trying to watch DET vs. PHI. It was playing IND vs POR. I had enough with the NBA LP BB stupidity. I cancelled the subscription and asked for a refund. Now, I just watch it on the bootleg stream, which is what I do anyway even when I had NBA LP

    some people rewind to see unbelievable dunks...............


    i rewind to see unbelielable BBBBEN WALLACE defense. That steal in the 4th quarter was CRAZYYY and his tip in was with half his jersey held by Melo!


    For years, i've sung his praises...he's earned his check already more than enough.

    I've thought this all year. I think Kuester might be the best thing, Ben Wallace's revival included, that has happened to the Pistons this year.

    It is crazy that Denver hasn't won at the Palace since 1995, think how different the L was "back then"?

    Billups really should have hit that lay-up.

    Was I the only one calling Melo We Don't Need Him - We got Tay after his variety of scores.

    I swear I had this, but I couldn't quite place Irvine's name and didn't want to look it up.

    Our streak over Nuggets at the Palace is similar to the Jazz hold over us in Utah...no matter how close the game is, the Pistons will beat the Nuggets and The Jazz will beat the Pistons...:)

    I am thinking if Billups had tossed up the trey, it would have gone in or he would have gotten the foul call for the three shots, but him driving from the left has always his nemesis....

    Don't reminds us on why we didn't draft mello. Every GM's motto should be draft the best player available, not whom you need. Just think if Portland had taken Durant instead of Oldman.. Or MJ instead of Bowie...

    Seems like that is Joe D's FA strategy.

    I really was an awkward shot he threw up. He used a two-handed scoop instead of a traditional left-handed shot.

    It was a 3-part question and you only answered one part correctly. Even with the Canadian exchange rate, you still fell short of winning.

    In another 5 years, I will be able to mumble half an answer and win, if the exchange rate trends keep up. ;)

    Still, Ernie didn't guess at all. I don't see how no answer is better than 1/3. As Wayne Gretzky said, "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.".

    Don't let that saying get back to Stuckey.
