My Spurs are right there again in the stacked bunch behind the Lakers. But honestly, I don't expect the Spurs to make the Finals or anything.

No young, athletic body down low to help TD out and their D has been average this season.

Nuggets have been impressive and so have the Magic.

The Spurs will never be out of the mix until TD and/or Popp are gone.

But this is the best Nuggets team I have ever seen (going to games since '85), sans maybe the team that took out Karl's Sonics in '94. I guess we will see What happens.

The losing large lead trend is disturbing (now a 1 pt. game against the Mavs).

You're right, Spurs will always be in the thick of things, but you can sense the other teams have caught up. The West is stacked this season.

Lakers are the big favorites but the Spurs, Nuggs, Hornets, and I think Rockets could give them a good tussle in the playoffs.

Well, considering their past, the Spurs are peaking early this year. If they turn it on like they usually do in Feb. they may well catch the Lakers.

Well, the guy's a fan. The Mavericks have never ever committed a foul, just ask him. I know Cuban acts like a jackass some times, but I really dig that he loves the game. He's not in his skybox. He's into the game. I think that's pretty cool. He has all the passion of a normal fan.

As for the last play, see this is what bugs me about NBA officiating. All the action leading up to the shot, Chauncey is getting mugged by Kidd. No calls made.

But then, on the shot, where usually they let stuff like that go, there the call is made. See for me personally, I would have liked to see a foul call on the hand checking before the shot. As for the shot itself, that was an iffy call at best, IMO.

I'll take a win any way they can get it. Going to the game on Saturday. Gotta see big bad Dwight Howard. DHow vs. Nene could be good. JR Smith will get out of his funk. Linas Kleiza is just garbage. He had so much potential the last two years. This year he's been nothing short of a trainwreck.

And Andersen's shot was fantastic.

JR is very streaky. Hopefully, he doesn't fall into the abyss.

01-13-2009, 10:01 PM
JR is a true scorer. Yeah, he can be streaky. But I don't see an abyss in his future. Especially with a license to score with Carmelo out. He'll get his shot going.

Kleiza on the other hand... I would like to just see, say, 5 consecutive productive minutes out of him.

I mean, obviously this is why guys like these are bench players. Carmelo being out really throws the rotations off.

Good take...I like Cuban myself but he hurts his credibility..should pick his battles a little more. As for the calls, I agree with you..perhaps the ref(s) was slow calling the foul before and "made up" for it. I love the NBA, but God these refs! Man!

You're being too hard on Kleiza. Yes, he was horrible tonight. But so was JR. But Kleiza is just as big of a reason as JR why the Nuggets are now a respected perimeter team.

He's been pretty horrible all year, outside of a few spots here and there. And I think JR is a step above Kleiza.

Anyways. I'm pretty sad to have to root for the Lakers this year.

The Nuggets have no shot of catching the Lakers, barring some catastrophic injury to Pau or Kobe. As such, any time the Lakers play anybody in the West (Nuggets excluded, obviously) I really hope they win. This is going to be a tight West. I think the Nuggies can win the division without any such help, but it wouldn't hurt.

It will come down to the Lakers and Celtics again.

I would love the Suns to make a push and I think this team is heading in the right direction under Kerr but a huge problem still exists on this team. Nash still thinks he is running a full court fast break offense and he turns the ball over at least 5 times a game with foolish passes. I know he can make some sweet dishes but he also throws that ball into places it has no business going. I love the Richardson trade but he really hasn't shown that 3 point accuracy he had last year. I'm guessing he is under 30% from 3 point range so far as a sun. At least Porter plays 9 guys or so and is getting good results from his bench. DiAntoni only played 5. I think the Suns will be fresh for the playoffs but honestly, I think Nash might cost them. All of their losses the past few weeks have been either by buzzer beater or by a few points. And it seems Nash turns the ball over at the worst times in the 4th quarter. You have to like what Shaq is doing. After seeing him last year, I wasn't so high on what he could do this year but he's like a totally different player so far. And Amare' is Amare'. Totally dominant until he takes himself out of the game due to foul trouble. I don't think there has been one game in the past month where he didn't get 3 fouls in the 1st half.

ludo21
01-19-2009, 04:26 PM
Nash is going to get those turnovers for the rest of his career. The ref's cost us the Nugg game, and I didnt get to see the Minnesota game except last shot.

Shaq is playing better, but still tends to suck at times. Amare is so frustrating... I just continue to hope he learns from his mistakes but he never does.

J Rich had a bad 2 game stretch, but besides that he has been easily shooting over 40% with the Suns. Its nice to have him as a 3rd of 4th option.

Lastly, when Barbosa scores, we cant lose.

Inkana7
01-19-2009, 05:30 PM
How can you say it'll come down to the Lakers and Celtics? I'll give you Lakers, but Celtics? Both the Magic and the Cavs are playing much better basketball. Boston has NO bench. And you can't win in the Playoffs without a bench. They're really missing James Posey.

RhymesayersDU
01-19-2009, 05:48 PM
The C's have a shot. IMO the Cavs, C's, and Magic all have equal shots to come out of the East. Nobody else has even a 1% chance though.

Hawks are deadly at home. They're not a bad team. Other than that, there's not much else. The West is surprisingly mediocre as well. Jazz, Rockets, Mavs and Suns are all waaaay too inconsistent. The only consistent winners are the Lakers, Spurs and Blazers.

I didn't watch the 2nd half of the game but it sounds like LA beat Cleveland at their own game, in the paint, down low, beating the **** out of people.

We really missed Z last night. His length was needed against Bynum and Gasol. I love Verajao, but he's just long enough to be a starting Center. We need Z back.

That third quarter tonight was awesome. They started with a 21-2 run to open the third. Billups was unstoppable, and he made that team play tough tonight. Melo had a double-double, and Nene was standing in there getting beat up and handing out the knocks. The team has some toughness. Refs were absent in the first quarter, and then made some really stupid calls both ways, I think.

Second seed so far, but there are a ton of games to go. I just hope they stay healthy.....

Nuggs teams of years past would have folded after the crappy first half they had last night. Not this team. I'm glad they are flying under the radar this year and not getting much if any recognition outside of Colorado. This is finally a team. CB7 has made a huge difference, and is a true floor general. Melo continues to improve his game and is actually playing some D. Nene is finally playing like the player everyone thought he could be and K-Mart is healthy and playing like he did in his NJ days. Throw in a career year from Bridman, and roll players like JR Smith, A. Carter and Klieza and I like the make up of this team. My only complaint is that I wish Balkman would get more of LK's minutes.

As a resident of the NY area where Balkman was a Knick, be careful what u wish for...

Hes one of those players whose efficiency directly corresponds to the amount of play he gets....the higher the minutes go the less effective he becomes...like a bell curve

Did you watch the game? His blocked shots were outstanding. Kobe literally willed them to win. The game was a shootout but the win came to the Lakers because of Kobe and because of his D even more than his O.

His blocks had the same effect as Elway did doing his helicopter. You look in the Super Bowl 32 stat sheet and you see a 7 yard Elway run. You watch the game and you realize it meant a hell of a lot more.

I understand you hate the Lakers\Kobe and love Lebron...but you are letting it cloud your judgment. It really is bad when you can't admire Kobe's game. He is one of the best to EVER play and he is in his prime right now. You are watching a basketball immortal (same as James).

i think the Lakers as a team won that game...the Kobe block no doubt was BIG...but Ariza came up huge in the 4th quarter and they were really hitting the offensive boards too

Nelson also ran his guys into the ground....he had to find a way to get Jackson to the bench for a few minutes and just didnt get it done

Ariza was huge in the 4th. Definitely. Entire team responded at the end of a tough game in a back to back situation. I saw it as Kobe gave the Lakers a chance to win with his will\desire\effort with those blocks. Ariza drove the dagger in.

I don't think a lot of casual fans understand how much Kobe makes his teammates better. He elevates their game with his play. Last night was a perfect illustration of that.

It is a significant attribute that should be taken into consideration when considering year end awards.

The Sports Guy's trade value rankings. Great read.


6. Kobe Bryant
You have to admire a future Hall of Famer with more than 1,000 NBA games on his odometer for playing 103 straight games and nearly 4,100 minutes last season, killing himself on the Redeem Team last summer, then playing another 51 straight games (and counting) this season. ... And during all of that, he somehow added two moves over the summer, MJ's late-career fallaway and that funky pivot move after he fakes the foul-line jumper. If all that's not enough, he's the clear No. 2 choice for MVP behind LeBron, as one of the only guys who delivers the goods every time you see him in person. I headed to Staples on Tuesday knowing Kobe would show up for four quarters. How many current guys can you say that about? Three? Five? Of everyone in the NBA this season, he has the most to gain historically over these next four months: If the Lakers win the title, he becomes one of the top 10 players ever, and that's that.

(Now here's where the Lakers fans e-mail, "But wait, he's in the top 10 already!!!!!" They're a delight.)


1. LeBron James
Last February, I wrote that he didn't have a ceiling. This year? I figured out his ceiling. At least for right now. At age 24, he's a cross between ABA Dr. J (unstoppable in the open court, breathtaking in traffic, has the rare ability to galvanize teammates and crowds with one "Wow" play, even handles himself as well off the court) and 1992 Scottie Pippen (the freaky athletic ability on both ends, especially when he's cutting pass lines or flying in from the weak side for a block), with a little MJ (his overcompetitiveness and sense of The Moment), Magic (the unselfishness, which isn't where I thought it would be back in 2003, but at least it's in there a little) and Bo Jackson (how he can occasionally just overpower the other team in a way that doesn't seem human) mixed in ... only if all of that Molotov Superstar Cocktail was mixed together in Karl Malone's body. This is crazy. This is insane. This is unlike anything we've ever seen. And to think, LeBron doesn't even have a reliable 20-footer or a post-up game yet. See, this is only going to get better. And it's already historic.

As a Celtics fan, I shudder for the future. As an NBA fan, I am pinching myself.

I think Lebron will win it and deserve it. I just don't think it is as clear cut. Nor would it be a 'joke' if Kobe won. It depends so much on what you consider the MVP criteria to be.

At this point, I believe Kobe is the best player. Lebron might be the most valuable player to his team.

121 points to a 19-36 team. I don't care what Kobe "Willed" them to. They allowed 121 points to a bad team.

It's games like last night that show why LA won't win a championship this season. Bad defense. Once they run into a team that can actually play defense, they lose. See last years finals. I do admire how they're trying to get un-foreignized by shipping Radmanovic away. But they still have Vuchich who is probably the most unliked player in the NBA.

Just found out Amare' is out 8 weeks and eye surgery today. Talk about a blow to a team. I liked their tempo tonight against OKC. That's not a bad team for real. They have lost alot of games but they've been in almost all of them to the end. And Durant is the real deal. He has a complete game and he is a match up nightmare. Colleson is a beast on the boards and a great low post player. If they had just one very good guard, they would be a threat. I look for them to draft one of the best point guards next year. Right now, it really looks like OKC got the better player between them and Portland (Oden) in last years draft.

Here's to wishing Amare' a speedy and full eye recovery. Hopefully his teamates can get them into the playoffs so he can return to action this year. They've got alot of easy games this month. They need to climb into 5th position by mid March. If they stay around 8th or 9th through March, I don't think they will get in.

Amare did have the same issue in preseason but only minor. I never heard anything of him HAVING to wear them, he said that WAS going to the rest of the way but they kept sliding down his fact so he took them off.

Jason Terry is a fantastic player but I still give the nod to Barbosa. I say Terry has a better mid range game then Barbosa but I give Barbosa the advantage in driving to the rim and 3 point accuracy. I think Terry and Barbosa though are true 6th men. In other words, I think their teams like their starting 5 players the best and these guys are the 6th best. And to my knowledge, neither guys were starters except on the case of filling in for injured players. Hamilton and Manu are totally starters and have only been relegated to the bench so that when they come in with other bench players, the have a "starter" type of player to help keep things going. That's like calling Tim Duncan a forward. Gimme a ****in break. He's a center. After Robinson left, he was the center and really always has been since.

And to azbroncos fan - I never complained about Shaq moving people around. He can't help the fact he's 350 pounds of pure muscle. I've complained a few times about his elbows but he still does that and those are legitimate calls. And nothing personal but you can kiss my butt in regards to your remark about Suns fans complaining. All fans complain. I've been to enough sports bars and watched enough games in ALL sports to know that. Geez, that's like a total given. But at least the Suns fans have a leg to stand on. I don't think alot of people were Stern fans when he suspended the Suns players that year. He's a frickin tool and most people who follow the NBA agree with that.

But I don't think the Suns are gonna do much this year if they somehow manage to land the 8th spot. No Amare' and No defense = season over. I don't care if Phil Jackson was coaching this team. They just cannot grasp the term defense. Sure I like the up tempo but for the love of god, it's not street ball. You have to at least attempt to play SOME defense. Good god. No KG and Celts still rip them apart. No matter who they play, somebody on the opposite team will have a career night in scoring, if not 2 players. It's that bad.

They learned a lot from last year, which is why they 46-10 and are beating the Celtics, Cavaliers etc. They better figure out how to defend the pick and roll, that's our kryptonite right now.

This Laker team is on a mission, they are out to seek and destroy teams. Last year they were a nice surprise and had fun, this year it's all business.

three things wrong with that play in my opinion...

a) there was a foul on Igoudala before the shot
b) if there is no foul, there has to be a travel or a self pass
c) the clock started late

I agree on the clock. The foul could have been called but we had the benefit of slow motion replay. Full speed it looked like he self passed. But it looks to me the ball came free touched Igoudala then he regained possession and then shot. That is allowable as its considered a strip.

<!-- end mod-article-title --> <!-- begin story body --> DENVER -- The Denver Nuggets (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=den) have suspended Carmelo Anthony (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?playerId=1975) for one game for an "in-game transgression" Sunday against Indiana.
"There is a code of conduct that we take very seriously, especially from a leader and co-captain," Rex Chapman, vice president of player personnel, said Monday. "Carmelo knows this and regrets what happened. He is a very competitive person and made a poor decision in the heat of the moment. We look forward to having him back on Thursday and will have no further comment at this time."
He did not elaborate on what Anthony did to earn the suspension.
The Nuggets said in a news release that Anthony will miss Denver's game at Detroit on Tuesday night, the Nuggets said in a news release. He will return to the lineup for Thursday's game against Portland.
Earlier Monday, team spokesman Eric Sebastian said Anthony would miss Tuesday night's game because of a personal matter he had to deal with in Denver.
Anthony has been bothered by a balky knee and has shot poorly his last two games, going just 12-of-41 from the field.
He is averaging a team-high 21.6 points and 7.4 rebounds but has missed 15 games already this season: 10 with a broken bone in his right hand that cost him an All-Star bid, three because of a troublesome right elbow and two for a team suspension to start the season following a drunken driving arrest last year.
This is the Nuggets' first trip to Detroit since the Nov. 3 trade between the teams sent Chauncey Billups (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?playerId=63) to Denver and Allen Iverson (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?playerId=366) to the Pistons.
Iverson with be out for the third straight game Tuesday night because of a bad back.
The Nuggets return home after their game at The Palace and face Portland Thursday night at the Pepsi Center, the first of four games in five nights for Denver, which leads the Trail Blazers by 1˝ games and Utah by two in the tight Northwest Division.

I really liked his game. The thing he needs to work on is pulling up for the quick three with a man in the fac early in the shot clock. He missed several bad three's last night which helped Utah get back into it. He looked like he could get to the rim whenever he wanted and would score/get fouled. The Iverson trade was the best thing that Denver did. I got blasted for laughing when they traded for him but it's obvious Denver wasn't going anywhere with him.

WHaa, whaa, whaa. Cry me a river. You don't see me crying about the refs as the more aggressive team will get the calls. Denver out played and was much more aggressive in the first half and won the FTA contest. Wasn't that the refs were against Utah they were playing soft. They came out aggressive and clamped the D down in 3rd and part of the 4th quarter and got to the line. Denver got spanked in the second half and were only up by 10 with Utah playing about as bad as they possibly could of in the first half but you can complain all you want like a phoenix sun fan. This division wouldn't even be close if Utah didn't have 120 plus man games lost this year to injury. The only player down the two rosters that Denver has an advantage in Melo other than that Utah has them at every position.

That guy is on the bench in Utah (Millsap) and a guy starting in front of him is Boozer. Okur has to be accounted for by the other teams Defense. Nene not so much.

As such, any time the Lakers play anybody in the West (Nuggets excluded, obviously) I really hope they win. This is going to be a tight West. I think the Nuggies can win the division without any such help, but it wouldn't hurt.


Are you sure? A lot of you were counting in on the 2 or 3 seed a little quick.

West
1 LA Lakers 50 12
2 San Antonio 42 20 .
3 Houston 41 23
4 Utah 40 23
5 New Orleans 39 22
6 Portland 39 23
7 Denver 40 24
8 Dallas 38 25
9. and done Phoenix 34 29

Lots of games to go but the division is no lock especially with Utah healthy again.

Sounds like the Lakers-Blazers game was a nice one last night.

Not only did LA let Portland shoot 45% from three, but Joel "The Vanilla Godzilla" Przybilla grabbed 18 boards over a pretty active and talented LA frontcourt. If only Oden wasn't a huge bust so far, they could be a deadly team.

Good question, they are really pulling a Denver Broncos trick and falling apart at the exact wrong time. Carmelo Anthony and Jay Cutler are very similar in some ways: very talented but immature and not yet (or pehaps ever)winners (although Melo did well at Cuse and can't seem to translate it in the show).

Suns have to win this one tonight!! I am sick of the inconsistency but they still have an outside chance to get in.

And Ariza is a dirty bastard, he better get 10 plus games for that crap.

Nothing is wrong with them it's just that the Jazz and Blazers are a better team when healthy. The stars are aligned for the Nuggets as they have more home games remaining than the other two teams.

KMart needs to get healthy. Next 5 are against pretty soft teams. Take care of those and they should find themselves back in first place. Nothing is guarunteed anymore though. :(

Unfortunately David Stern disagrees :bash:

Apparently a foul that puts a guy in the fricken hospital isn't that hard of a foul ???

Ugly win last night, but I'll take it. Two triple doubles in a row for Bron-Bron.

At least Odom got a game for leaving the bench.

Missing KMarts toughness.

Billups wearing down.

Carmelo reverting to form.

Nene wearing down.

The guy is simply amazing. I'm sure the NBA will find a reason to give the MVP award to somebody else this season though.

This Nugs-Mavs game is exactly why I question why I even watch the NBA. It blows away the notion that the NBA does not have the worst refs out there. Bull**** call after bull**** call after bull**** call after bull**** call.

Nugs up by 2 with a minute left right now, and they should be up by double digits. But these ****ing refs are doing everything in their ****ing power to secure a Mavs win. Absolute ****ing bull****. Rivals the Nugs-Rockets game on MLK day.

Now this shout that melo just now made......how in the holy **** is that not a ****ing foul when Dirk was all over him, and had his ****ing hand in his face?


Mavs win this game and the refs stole it for them.

As impressive of back to back road wins as I can recall the Nuggets having in a while, especially not having Nene.

Still you never know when the Nuggets might choke. If they can avoid that the division is theirs, and they may have a shot at the #3 seed.

Well looking at the schedule they "should" win 7 of the last 9 which would probably give em the 3 seed. Great win against the Mavs and refs tonight. Need to take care of business tomorrow night though, or this win means nothing.




8 of 9 might get em the 2 seed though, and the @LA Lakers game I wouldnt be surprised to see em win either since they might be locked in to their overall seeding by then.

BTW, the Suns can straight kiss my everlovin ass. We help them out by losing to them and sweeping the Mvs and they have to repay us by getting their asses kicked by Portland. Sons of bitches better beat Utah tomorrow.

I hope the Suns get left out of the playoffs, and I hope the Mavs do, too. Houston also is a team of floppers.....

Wow, no joke! That was the best I've seen Melo play in a while, he just dominated when we needed him the most..
