T'Wolves should play Derrick Williams more

9.3 PPG per 19.9 MINs

Thats around 17 PPG if he played 34-36 minutes each game

which is solid, play him more

How does LA have a clearly worse record than Portland, and better odds?

How can they possibly say there is the slightest chance Portland goes 3-34 for the rest of the season?

It's a 1/5000 chance. They also have OKC and SA potentially running the table and going 27-0 down the stretch. I think you underestimate how low a 1/5000 chance really is.

To answer your question though a lot of it has to do with matchups and strength of schedule. Right now Houston is a game back of Utah, but they have the Rockets projected to finish 4 games up on them. It's not some crazy Lakers bias.

They have the Kings possibly going 0-35. What a joke.

ESPN should stick to what they're good at, and that is staying off my tv.

Sullinger is having back surgery and is done for the season. He dropped in the draft because teams were concerned about back issues going forward, I guess they were right.

^That's awful. I know I've read he has "back problems", but is there anything specific that the Docs found before the draft?

As for Westbrook, lol the TNT crew called him Urkel. Isn't he the one who had a silvery shiny shirt before the Lakers game? I can't imagine his closet.

Among NBA's top five all-time scorers, @kobebryant now has the most assists. Kobe (5,664 assists) passed Kareem (5,660) last night.

i guess, just smells of some ********. It isn't so much the 3-34 it's that a worse performing Laker's team doesn't even have a 1/5000 chance of that happening, and they are playing worse basketball.

Browsing an NBA thread is far different from actually watching the games.

The only time I watch the NBA is when I'm at the gym, and ESPN is having NBA games on. Only game I've watched this season was the Mavs game where they went to OT(forget who they were playing), and Mayo made a rediculous 3 to tie the game up and send it into OT, and that kid that was on a 10 game contract or whatever decided to hold onto the ball until the shot clock expired and tossed up a rediculous 3 point shot.

Just find it pretty sad that you confess you don't watch the NBA nowadays yet still browse a regular season NBA thread to talk about what a joke it is. Get a life buddy, nobody cares about your little gym story.

It's not like the NBA is the only sport with flopping. In the NHL you see players diving and exaggerating contact in pretty much every single game.

So you come into a thread about the NBA and you talk down the game? What positive can come out of this?

If you don't like the game, that's fine. Don't come here to troll. I don't go on the Coyotes board posting one of many possible pictures of your 1/8 filled arena.

That's so embarassing. The worst part is that he had the shot. Perfectly faced up, in rhythm and no chance of having it blocked. Why flop??

What a drubbing the Knicks put on the Kings tonight, and without Melo even hitting double digits.
