Oh wow, Iggy's quickness end to end is something else. Caron Butler had a good 15 feet on him to begin with and Iggy still beat him to the rim on the opposite end of the court.

Gosh, how much the C's have missed that type of quickness lately. I can't wait for Avery Bradley to return.

The Knicks are starting Marcus Camby + Tyson Chandler together? With Ronnie Brewer and Jason Kidd in the backcourt? They need more offense on the floor to help Carmelo out. That is a badly balanced lineup.

Offense is too predictable without Raymond Felton on the floor. They need his dribble penetration and pick and roll play. They need that dimension to their team. Kidd doesn't offer enough playmaking / creativity anymore. Brewer is a non-threat offensively. They need a guard there who can make some plays offensively. Even at a mediocre level.

Haha, Tyson Chandler with the FT line jump-shot. Almost an air-ball. Barely grazed the front of the rim. The Knicks really struggling to create quality shot attempts.

I am surprised Kidd is guarding Tony Parker. I would've expected R.Brewer to get the assignment. Or for Prigioni to get the start ahead of Brewer to defend Parker and help run the offense with Kidd sliding to the two spot.

San Antonio's offense doesn't look any better than New York's. The twin tower configuration and the two limited wings (offensively speaking) is really hurting their spacing.

I still think they need to move Manu Ginobili into that starting lineup to re-balance their starting unit with Splitter and Duncan starting alongside one another. They are doing themselves a disservice by keeping Danny Green in there.

Ray Allen 3 shot attempts.

What are the chances he throws a hissy fit in the locker room?

DeAndre Jordan looks much more athletic than Dwight Howard right now.

That was a great baseline drive by Blake Griffin a moment ago going by Pau Gasol with the strong muscled up finish at the basket. Impressive physical power play in the paint by Griffin.

I was at the Clippers Celtics game on the 27th, and watching Griffin in person is scary.  When LA gets in the open court, he looks like a freight train running right to the paint.  Then, in post-up situations, he just bullies his opponent like they're 5 inches shorter than him.

He's definitely one of the stronger guys in the league.

Simmons and Magic trashing DiAntoni. And rightly so, imo. Gasol shouldn't be shooting 3s unless its a desperate shot at the last second to beat the shot clock.

Howard and Gasol are being misutilized.

Thats because he is, no doubt in my mind.  Howard is not yet the player he once was, maybe he'll get back to that level.  He doesn't seem to have the quickest and lift off the block he had...maybe time will heal him and MAYBE not. Back problems are not easy to rehab.

Jerry Sloan would have been a better choice for this Lakers team.

Clippers sucking here in the fourth. Panicked offense. No composure.
