Yeah it's really pointless for the NBA to guarantee the division winners a top-4 seed if they aren't going to get HCA against a lower-seeded team.

It would be a huge help if the division winner is a 6th seeded team.

It's weird to think that 50 is Carmelo's career best and he's only matched it once, and that most recent effort was against the superfriend's b-team. Really puts into perspective how exceptional even 40 points in a game is for most players. But especially with Anthony who has the reputation as being one of the best 'pure scorers' in the league. But other than his 33-point quarter(which is epic, without a doubt) as well as some late-game heroics and just general hot streaks he gets. It kind of seems like hot air. Also puts into perspective just how ludicrous some of Kobe's scoring feats have really been. The consensus is that Durant is the most liable to be the guy to take the scoring mantel into the future and be the guy who will drop 60 or more but maybe not. Maybe it just really is that hard to do as well the game has changed enough that those types of scoring outputs are less necessary.

Was interesting to hear the Hawk's crowd oo'ing and aah'ing for Melo to shoot near the end of that game tonight though. Fans still love huge scoring efforts.

no one really shoots as much as kobe though. Not a knock on kobe because hes earned the right to shoot when he wants but I think if melo or durant shot as many shots then they would have more 50/60+ pt games. If westbrook wasnt shooting at every chance he gets then I could see durant looking alot more like kobe.

Kobes scoring records are amazing though none the less

Looks like Heat and Thunder are the only two teams which can stay healthy for since the 2011-2012 season ..

I don't really care for Westbrook. In fact, I kind of dislike him. But it's pretty amazing that he's stayed healthy and hasn't missed a single game in his career so far, given that he's such an aggressive player.

JO's bizarre and unnecessary goaltend FTL in houston has implications for the lakers, imo. had houston lost that game, it widens the gap between them and gs, perhaps giving both teams less incentive to go all out in their games against la. instead, they're probably going to be in a dogfight for 6th (aka the right to avoid sa/okc and play an injured and imminently upsettable nuggets team) until the final day of the season.

Lol, Spurs start the game 14-0 and then practically gave up. Oh well, that Denver air is a dandy.

I'm surprised JO didn't smack the ish out of Hollins. Ain't nobody putting a choke hold on my teammate. And to do that for that long? :mad1:

Nate Robinson is just SO annoying. But he's playing well for the Bulls, can't deny that

He can come be annoying on this team. We need someone to come off the bench on the perimeter like him and just get buckets and go sit back down.

they seem to play better, especially defensively, without him from what I have seen.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Bulls are playing tough D regardless of the countless injuries they have had for two seasons ...

The main weakness of Thibs imo is he's wearing his guys down by playing them so many minutes ( mainly Noah and Deng) ... tough to stay healthy by playing 40+ with this kind of intensity on D

Exactly ... I'm not sure Nate with the green light giver MDA would have resulted in good things though ...

He knows he's going out if he's playing dumb with Thibs

:man10:... OKC is on a good streak ... Westbrook play has been impressive lately

However their record against the top teams since March hasn't been good at all 3-6 against Denver , Floppers , SAS, Grizz and Knicks ( one pt win against a Melo less NY ) ... and being routed by Heat at home just before the ASG ...

I know it sounds cliche but they really are going to miss Harden playmaking and abilities to get to the line ( mostly on phantom calls) in the playoffs ...

The West playoffs are a tough read right now ... OKC HCA is a big plus but I'm not convinced from what I've seen in their "big" games ... they definetely won't beat the Heat this season if both meet again in the Finals

Oh sure KD is still getting his superstar calls ... fact is OKC is averaging more FTs a game than last season

but Martin game is just different than Harden one ... he can't take pressure off KD/Westbrook and playmake like Harden was... plus he's worse than Harden defensively so OKC may have to go with Thabo down the stretch in some situations

I know everyone expects the Thunder to walk on LA if/when they meet in the first round...

I can see us making it a series if we play the way we've been doing. Slow the game down. Move the ball through Kobe/Pau at the high post. Allow Dwight to make up for the defensive side of the ball. Team rebound.

We can win 2-3 games that way against them, especially in LA.

If Thunder start raining 3s on us...it's over. However, a lot of ppl are counting out the Lakers if they face OKC, and rightfully so...it definitely brings back memories of the Dallas/Lakers series in 2011....almost everybody had Lakers winning that series (we had HCA and Dallas just wasn't that good against us all year)...and we ended up getting swept. Not that we're gonna sweep the Thunder if we win....but all I'm saying is, stranger things have happened...

It really depends on how we finish the season though. If we have 3 convincing wins against these 3 playoff teams, I'll feel good about facing anyone in the playoffs.
