    He didn't play well when we smashed them the other day. One game doesn't mean much.

    Lou Williams damn. We need one of our guards to have a game like that.

    Any chance Williams sniffs all star? He's averaging 23/4/3 on great percentages, and they're not too far out of 8th

    He actually had a good game. Shot well, not too many TOVs, etc. But, everyone else pretty much sucked. The rest of their starters shot .288 FG% and they only got 11 points from their bench.

    That's also their third straight double digit loss. They have lost five of their last seven, with their only wins coming against the Lakers and the Clippers.

    Hey @HCP is that what you call "figuring it out"?

    I know Minnesota has a crazy bad record against the East this year, meaning they've been very good against the West, but I just looked at the standings and was surprised to see that they have the best Division (8-1) and Conference (22-6) record of any team in the league, just beating out Boston (7-1) and Toronto (17-5), respectively.

    If that trend were to continue, talk about a weird team to project for playoff success. Run the table in the West and get slaughtered by any team in the East?

    Wow. Isaiah Thomas is 0/10 at half in Toronto. I wonder if Toronto has a chance to reach Finals this year.

    DeRozen is 2/9, Lowry isn't playing, and the Raptors are up 33 on the Cavs.

    So Aldridge chooses to leave money on the table so that he can "go home" and join the San Antonio Spurs. Then, after a trip to WCF, he wants to leave? What a bum.
