Definitely something up with Westbrook sitting tomorrow.

He'll definitely be moved.

I wouldn't be surprised if they sign Kemba. Pistons are paying him 9 mil not to play. They can have him for veteran minimum. He says he's healthy.

Brooklyn Nets bench has been hurt. Curry,Harris,Morris and Warren all hurt. Harris will play Sat. There using,Watanabe,Sumner, and David Duke Jr instead

Who will emerge as as their 3rd scorer, they need one?

The Simmons move didn't meet a need imo.
 
Well I broke my short standing rule of going NutZ on a particular play. There's 18 sportsbooks in Colorado and although I'm personally limited at 3/4 of them I've acquired quit a few accounts and I'm down for the max at all of them on Joker Over .5 3 pointers tonight. I managed to find some incredible #'s +500 on 2 threes and +1600 on 3 threes even put some beer money on 4 three pointers at +4000 all of those at bet365.

I heard an interview that Joker did and they asked him about his 3 point shot and he explained that it's going down in practice and in shoot around just not in the game. They asked him if he still had confidence in it and he said "of course". Coach wants him shooting 3 or 4 of those a night. Coach Malone then goes on to explain why even if they're not going in its imperative for him to keep shooting 3's because it opens everything up inside. I move lines at a lot of these books so I'm surprised that the line actually moved steadily against me all day. Fingers crossed.
 
Bones already has 7 threes MPJ has 4 and my boy Joker is 0-4 and now that it's a blowout probably won't get back in the game. I can't help myself I see an angle and I go for it. Just bad fucking luck.

Even DeAndre friggin Jordan hit a three.

Well if the Lakeshow finishes out of the playoffs at least they'll get a lottery pick...

Ummm, not so fast my friend, if top 5, goes to the Pels.

Total shitshow...

Stats not mind boggling, but Westbrook's best game as a Laker....

Offense finally flowed with him in.

Amazing transformation with the Houston Rockets.

From worst to one of the best rebounding teams.
 
I took Over for both MPJ (16.5 points) (2.5 threes) and Dort (14.5) and over (1.5 threes) I could see both these guys going back and forth tonight.

Westbrook has adapted to his role off the bench beautifully. More spark and energy.

The problem with the Lakers is Lebron, as Chick Hearn used to say he can't throw a pea in the ocean right now.

The problem isn't so much LeBron, the problem is Lonnie Walker and Troy Brown in the SL and guys like Austin Reeves, Juan Toscano Anderson, Matt Ryan, and Wenyen Gabriel coming off the bench, this is the worst roster LeBron has played with since his early Cavalier days

Lonnie Walker has been a great pickup from Spurs....one of the problems Ham has is when he puts in shooters, like Reeves
and Ryan, they can't guard a tree. On the flip side, Beverly was a bad addition. He can't shoot either.

He's a good player coming off the bench, he wouldn't be a starter on a legit playoff team, bottom line is the roster just isn't good enough, where's the three point shooting?

You wonder where that franchise would be if Magic has the foresight to draft Jayson Tatum instead of Lonzo Ball

I realized last night that Utah center Markkanen has developed into a All-Star player.

Shooting is a much talked about problem with them. They're the worst in the NBA. However I watch teams like Houston, uber
athletic. Then watch the Lakers, they look like they're playing in slow motion.

I played Under Utah 30.5 wins, I believe it closed 25.5, and for all practical purposes it's already a loser

I wonder if Laker HC Ham will last the season. The Lakers stink. He did one good thing, he convinced Westbrook
to come off the bench which is one thing Vogel couldn't accomplish.

Brick is killing the Lakers. 45% FG, 23% from 3, 66% from the line. A guy that gets mostly layups and dunks should shoot over 50%. The best angle in basketball is to hope Brick stays healthy and fade him.

Great trade for Minn only trading 5 no 1's and 5 players for Ruddy. Their 5-8=lottery for Utah. Meanwhile Utah leading the west=addition by subtraction. Rule #1-10 don't make a trade with Danny Ainge,how many have worked out against him?
 
Two strange OT games tonight.

I had Under 217 in the Mia/Wash game. Fourth quarter ends 104-104 going to OT. They proceed to only score 5 points in OT final score 106-107.

I have the Cavs -8.5 looks good all game until they get outscored 35-23 in the 4th quarter and goes to OT each team scores 15 points in 5 min and we go to double OT Cavs outscore the Hornets 12-2 for the cover. lol
