    Ariza has 4 threes.. I would appreciate it if he would start to suck.

    The Clippers backcourt of Pat Beverly and Avery Bradley isnt going to work. There is not enough playmaking. The Clippers should start SGA and play him alongside Beverly and move Bradley to the bench to play alongside Milos...

    au contraire the caption is a pure genius
    a clever multimeaning ambiguous shot at rockets and a deserving high praising ariza for the move he did

    Riza blew them out. The Canaan ball. Ayton with a good game.

    He has been unleashed. Harden was holding him back

    Last night was very interesting day..

    Utah Jazz are legit AF.. they had like 6-7 people on double figures.... that’s ridiculous, Quin got the team playing well and they have a shot at the top 3 seed.

    East is still trash af... Bucks need to be blowing out the Bobcats, imposing their wills and actually making a run for the finals this year. Pistons barely beat the Nets... Raptors are going to lose to the Celtics in the playoffs... and Magic’s will finally make the playoffs.

    Clippers defense is actually very good, nuggets will have a chance to make the playoffs, West is stacked once again and it’s a race to the finish line.

    Suns looked goood, they would make the playoffs in the East.

    As for the Rockets, 3-4 minutes into the game, I tweeted that the Rockets players didn’t come to play, I was right. It wasn’t that pelicans ARE that good. The rockets just were not playing, they were coasting for the first half and keeping up. Harden didn’t even try to score or pass. Media and social platforms will have you believe that the rockets are worse than last year.. no defense.. etc.. but nobody really “watched” the game. It was evident that rockets didn’t give a **** at all. At moments, they tried, then they said **** it.

    Giving a **** is probably the most important thing, so if they're not good because they don't give a ****, that's a pretty big problem, lol.

    As for the rest of the league, the 3 point dominated... as to be expected. Every team that won shot a higher 3 point %, except for the Bucks, where both teams shot great 41.2% for Bucks, 42.1% for Hornets on similar attempts.

    3 point efficiency is such a game changer as it relates to offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency (missing threes leads to fast breaks the other ways, making threes leads to half court defense).
