    His only shot attempt a 3 pointer with less than 3 seconds on the clock. But hey - he did have 6 TOs!

    Dude kept passing up open shot after open shot. Took his first and only shot at the end of the game. Teammates were apparently getting after him for not shooting on the bench during timeouts.

    Wonder if he's protesting after getting slapped with a 25k fine earlier today. Or he has some personal shit going on. Looked completely down the whole night.

    Whatever the reason for his pout-a-thon, it cost DEN a win. So, I'm cool with that. Thanks Joker!

    Don't know, but it seems really mentally soft of him to turn down open shots.

    Meh, have you seen their schedule? Their current 6-game winning streak includes wins over 1-10 CLE, 2-8 PHO, and 2-8 WAS. They only have two wins over teams above .500 (6-4 LAC and 6-5 CHO).

    Funny you bring up Gasol. He's always been my best comp hope for Nurk. Took him 7 years to avg 15+ pts game. Beast is trending there now.

    Karl Anthony got paid.

    Jimmy was right. He should be GM instead of Thibs. Well, I guess he kind of is...

    With Towns, Wiggins and Butler on the roster, if you go back to July, I guarantee you not a single person on the planet, not even Derrick Rose himself, would have thought he'd be the best player on their team come November.

    I keep going back and forth on Butler. He wasn't wrong about his team-mates - but I also dislike the way he handled it. If he wants to be the lead dog, he needs to spend more time pulling the sled and less time pissing on it.

    Is that suggesting that the Blazers defense is actually good? Or is it a case of the league as a whole being worse off defensively?
