How the fuck do you get fired after a 22 point win?

He should have gotten fired last year, when it was apparent that his methods were totally not going to work. That team is a wreck, and he's mostly responsible. Getting fired after a win is ironic, but it's probably been in the works since the Butler thing, if not before.

Watching this joke of a game.  Rockets have 23 free throws in the first half to five for the nuggets.  Twice they have jumped sidewise into defenders for three freebies.  I have watched almost every minute the nuggets have played this year but I may not finish this one. 

I repeat, the Rockets are painful to watch and about half of their game plan needs to be legislated out of the nba.

Yep.  As i type the last post Harding gets three freebies for a 'shot' in which he is facing 270 away from the basket; jumps and heaves.

Wiggins goes for 40 and 10. Every now and then he shows you what he can be, but he never sustains it.

Also, Klay scored 43 points while dribbling the ball 4 times.

Anyone watching this amazing Spurs-Thunder game? Aldridge has 51 and Westbrook has 24 assists right now. Wild

ETA: Nothing like 5 minute replay reviews to break up a game. Jesus

ETA2: Aldridge- 56pts, 9 boards

Westbrook- 24 pts, 24 assists, 13 boards

Finally beating Houston, at Houston, was a rapturous experience. Giannis launching a heat-seeking missile at Harden was just the icing on the cake. 

In all seriousness though, mad respect to Harden still. While I thought he got a lot of ticky-tack 3pt foul calls, he still absolutely iced our defense until the last couple minutes. His step back 3s are just murderous. Fuck him, but mad props all the same.

I have made my distaste with Harden's game clear, but some of the stats I'm seeing are insane. He's scored 30 or more points in each of his last 17 games, and over the course of that time he's averaging over 40 ppg. That's nuts! And just the other night he scored 38 points while going 1-17 from three. How???

GSW starting to warm up. Presumably to show that they don't need a dominant centre. 50 pt quarter and 5 on the bounce.

The statistics I just heard are insane. A deep three in the NBA is considered a shot from between 30 and 35 feet. The league average this year on those shots is 22%. Curry’s is 54%, and he takes more than any other player, which means he’s inflating that 22% stat. Furthermore, over the last four plus seasons, during the span of the Warriors run, Curry is hitting deep threes at a 48% clip. Curry’s lethalness from so far is what makes the Warriors so unstoppable because everyone else is getting easier shots. Durant is the best player on the Warriors, but Curry is by far the most important one.

Put up 58 tonight.

If he keeps this up he’ll sneak into the top 10 for the MVP...
