Asik Available?

Houstons's re-launch with Chairman D-How may be leaving one disgruntled teammate it it's wake: Omar Asik, former starting center. He would fill a aping need on the Cs (defensive minded starting...

Bulls, Yeh!

93-86 vs Lebron & Co, An average night for his King-ishness, but Chalmers, the 3rd Amgio, the artist formally know as J Shuttlesworth and Mr Battier shot them out of it (combined 7-29). Shows...

Why we miss having a Perk

In the first minuntes of last nights Thunder-Rockets game, our pal Perk flattened Beverly, he who's aggressive play took Westie out for the season. Among the many other things lacking on this...

Shot Selection, Wins and the '12-13 Celts

Says the good folks at Hardwood Paroxysm, its not just about getting good lucks for your own guys, but denying good looks on the other end [well, duh, but check it out]. Fwiw, the Spurs are...

Can the C's Cool Down the Heat?

The early word form the punditocracy is that MIA will roll. No surprise, that, but it projects the James Wade Indy Romp as the norm. It forgets the troubles the heat have had vs lineups that...

Not Dead Yet

Running commentary on the trade and line-up threads has the C's down as 4th in the East and a 2nd round exit. Since Doc will likely not expend his vets for HCA, a 4th seed is reasonable. Come the...

Gladwell Nails the Lockout

Alternate histories

Day DA had not gone all-in for KG.  Instead,  drafts Noah but did the deal for Ray.  C's have a front line of Al, Noah and Perk to go with Ray, Paul and Rondo.  Gomes off the bench.  Youth and...

Bulls 'r Us

Built on the Celtics template but younger, faster stronger.  Rose is Rondo with a shot.  Booze-Noah a quicker and stronger KG and (departed ) Perk.  Their wings dont have Ray's shot or Paul's...

Interesting. Pen. Is Mighter closed out their recap for Sat's loss (our win) witht the following "Game 4 coming up on Monday...gut check time for the Heat."  Not get back on track.  Not Boston...

Screens?

The absence of Perk's low-post presence has been done to death, but do they miss him on the screen and roll as well? As Johnny Ludden notes in his his latest yahoo sprots piece,"Perkins sets the...

Doc's mix and match vs NOLA

From today's Globe; the key [to the comeback] was shortening the rotation, mixing the reserves with starters, Rivers said. “We wanted to make sure the bench wasn’t in with five bench guys. We...

Celtics: No Gear?

What to make of Friday's listless game vs Thunder on Friday?  It's hardly cause for panic--when these guys are on, they are tough. Period. The problem is with being 'on'.  When they show up in...

Jazz Expose Heat

The lack of a 4th option is a limit (for now anyway) on what the South Beach Boyz can get done. Les Amigos took 54 of MIAs shots but LB only connected on 5/15. Not much help from the rest of the...

MIA's Offensive Sets Lacking

Ive been thinking that MIA might sputter a bit if they played  glorified pick-up ball.  So did Scores and More on the SBNation main site: "...  just look at the offensive sets, the Heat looked ......

Two Substitutions and Small Ball

Guarding Lebron is a LOAD.  It's asking a lot for Pierce to carry that burden and score as well.  Quis did a capable job LBJ in limited minutes.  Why not expand that role, either as a straight sub...

Rondo: cool steel?

No ones doubts Rondo is competitive.  But is it in a way that helps the club? I'm thinking of the stories that have leaked out about his maturity.  About hating on teammates that weren't ready for...

Efficient Pierece Picking his Spots

So Dwight wants the Ball...

To recap: the (self-styled) superman goes public re wanting more touches. Classy. Memo to Msr. Howard: more touches might be forthcoming if you developed your foot-work, post moves and spins so as...

Silver Lining: Sixth man

Reading a list of top sixth men around the league, I noted no one off the Cavs bench made the list. Wally has been serviceable, at best, Gibson and Pavlovic, barley that. Of course, if you have a L...

Silver Lining 1: Short rotations

While there is nothing good about Leon Powe's injury, for him or the team, it does have an interesting ripple effect.  Doc has been forced to go with Davis, and, mercifully, BBD has responded.  No...

Marbury Mismanaged?

The consensus amongst Marbury  naysayers is that he is a me-firster on court.  Well, watching him play vs the Pacers, I thought, dang, he hit the open man well enough. Then, I  thought, gee, he...
