knicks are looking surprisingly good-hustling on defense and running a great offense centered around porzingis.

porzingis spent the summer doing the necessary strength,balancing and footwork that is improving his game in a big way.he's been incredible-an early mvp candidate.

hornacek is doing a fantastic job as well.

go knicks!

OKC is 4-7 and I don't think they have beat a Western conference team yet.

Warriors had Minnesota at home Wednesday night. They are starting to gel.............played this game without Durant.............with this roster sure didn't matter. Some were looking forward to this matchup as Wolves are an up and comer with Wiggins, Anthony-Townes and now Jimmy Butler. Warriors did their third quarter terrorization of Minnesota which has been SO common over the last three years...........game looks close until halftime..........then it's ALL over by midway through the third. The team of the last three years is starting to re-appear.

Houston cleaned Cavs clock last night in Houston.............triple double for Harden..........he's on another level..............Cavs look to be in serious trouble..........no one really stands out right now other than LeBron...........loss of Irving seems to really hurt them but many predicted that it would.

Is Boston the team to beat in the East? It's way early, but right now it's looking that way.

The Celtics are looking like they could make some noise this year. Their bench players have stepped up. Tatum and Brown are ahead of where I thought they would be. Kyrie Irving, well, he's a top eight player in the league. Good coaching from Brad Stevens.
It's a long season, but so far it's been great. GO CELTICS.

gotta get some love for Kristaps Porzingis-a legit star-if he can stay healthy he has unlimited potential.

His timing, defense,footwork,shooting,ballhandling...whew...all at 7' 3"

my Knicks finally have something to cheer for-Jeff Hornaceck is doing an excellent job, finally freed from Phil's triangle lunacy.

He's playing fantastic -- a Rik Smits/Andrei Kirilenko hybrid -- playing the way I always thought AK would in Utah -- struggles ahead for Jazz w/no Rudy
their game tonite w/Cleve will tell much -- w/Joaquin Noah back in uniform? Still no definite word on IT

Terry Rozier has become a crucial part of the rotation now too -- the picks we've had are really stepping into it -- Shane Larkin playing good minutes
nope I was all wrong coming into season -- didn't think all the trades would work in our favor, but they sure have, & as kevdab said -- Kyrie is the man -- he's fit in better & faster than I thought -- a shot like that to the chops, Ouch

same thing AB in Detroit, he's fit right in & Pistons playing like their Ft. Wayne days

Suddenly, it's Paul George's team -- they played great, Melo sat out last night -- they & Cleve will get going soon (Cavs starting tonight? ) -- gotta feeling Melo's minutes going to decrease -- Adams also missed last nite for OKC

still watching my other big 3s, MN, & NO-when-Rondo-arrivo

Celts Have Been Amazing, Keep It Going Boys!

We'll find out Thursday
(at this early time of season)
Kyrie fitted w/facemask, unsure if making Brooklyn trip

First sentence in today's Celtics Notebook section:
"At 21 years old and only in his second NBA season, Jaylen Brown is still in the rudimentary stages of everything."
That's kinda what I was referring to in that 11/7 post -- he D'd up big-time contesting DeRozan's last shot
another headline reads "Somehow Streak At A Dozen"
it's amazing & awesome what Celts are doing -- Theis has stepped up -- GSW as usual playing really good

An amazingly fun night in the Garden last night...despite the intense defensive focus on KP,Kanter,Lee, and Hardaway were excellent almost toppling the Cavs.

Lebron became a 4th qtr. assist machine and Korver went off...they scored 43 in the 4th and squeaked by the Knicks.

Something is definitely starting to happen for NY hoops...it's been a long time!

Caves look awful and need some defense in general and some interior help.

Joel Embiid pours in career-high 46 points as Sixers sink Lakers


http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/sixers/sixers-lakers-score-game-joel-em biid-ben-simmons-lonzo-ball-recap-20171116.html

LOS ANGELES — It was Joel Embiid Career Night at the Staples Center.



The center finished with career highs of 46 points, seven assists and seven blocks Wednesday night in a 115-109 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center. Embiid also had career highs in made field goals (14), made free throws (16) and free throw attempts (19). He added 15 rebounds to finish with second straight double-double, his sixth of the season. Embiid tied his season-low for turnovers with just two. He averages 4.4 per game.


“I was just playing basketball basically,” Embiid said of being in a groove. “They just kept throwing the ball to me in the post. And I kept finding new ways to score the ball and I went to the free-throw line. That’s where I was best at last year. I felt like today I did a great job.”

The 7-foot-2, 282-pounder fouled Lakers reserve post player Julie Randle with 24.8 seconds left.

“And with me using different moves and attacking them, they didn’t really know what to do,” Embiid said.


The Eurostep and Hakeem Olajuwan’s ‘Dream Shake’ were two of the many moves he used to score against the Lakers.

In the process, he was first player in NBA history with at least 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven blocks and seven assists in a game. He was first Sixer to score at least 40 since Allen Iverson had 45 in 2006.




“I wish I could have had a quadruple-double with blocks, shoutout [Miami Heat center] Hassan Whiteside,” Embiid said. “But like I said, I just went out there and played basketball and played the right way.

“I wasn’t forcing nothing, Playing with my teammates, passing the ball.”

The two turnovers was the thing he was most happy about tonight.

Teammate Ben Simmons also had a solid game. The point guard finished with 18 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds for his ninth double-double of the season. He was one rebound shy of his third triple-double.

The victory improved the Sixers to 8-6 as they won for the seventh time in the last nine games. They are on their best start through 14 games since the 2012-13 season when the Sixers also went 8-6.

Nineteen of Embiid’s points came in the fourth quarter of this close game. With the Sixers down one, he converted a three-point play to put the Sixers ahead 103-101 with a little over four minutes to play.

Simmons followed that with a 10-foot jumper on the ensuing possession. After the Lakers pulled within one point, Embiid made a pair of foul shots to give the Sixers a 107-104 lead with 2 minutes, 52 seconds remaining.

The Sixers opened up an eight-point cushion (112-104) after three-pointer by Robert Covington and a jumper by JJ Redick.

The Lakers pulled within four points with 46.5 seconds left. However, Embiid scored a layup with 26.1 seconds remaining to make it a 114-108 game.

“He’s a beast,” Simmons said. “He’s been doing really well [and] he’s been getting better every game. We’re getting better playing together.”

This game featured the much-anticipated matchup between Simmons and the Lakers’ Lonzo Ball.

The point guards came into the season at the leading candidates to win rookie of the year. Simmons has since separated himself from Ball, who has been struggling.

This game was a one-sided battle, as Ball failed to live up the hype.

He struggled from the field, finishing with two points on 1-for-9 shooting. The 6-foot-6, 190-pounder missed all six of his three-point attempts. He was benched in fourth quarter for the second consecutive game.

Brandon Ingram led the Lakers (6-9) with 26 points and 11 rebounds.

wasn't as easy as hoped for-jazz defense was pretty good and knicks were a bit off defensively-luckily Hardaway had another great 4th qtr.

sixers-EMBILD/SIMMONS=this combination of talent is incredible-what a joy to watch.pretty good supporting cast as well.

Lonzo will be a good player eventually, but he's clearly struggling..and far from Magic's fantasy that Lonzo will be "the face of the franchise"

I heard an announcer say the other night that Lonzo Ball is shooting under 30% both from the field and from the three point line. Wow is all I can say. It's early, and Kobe Bryant had some mighty struggles his rookie season as well when he was only 18. That said, there is HUGE pressure on Ball, a lot of it from his jerk Father who has made statements like "He is better than Steph Curry". Mmmmm........under 30%..........you look awful foolish right now Daddy.........

Congrats Stephen and all other Celts fans hanging here.

I was very, very impressed by Boston tonight. It looked like The Warriors had this game in the bag in the first half. Celts proved they not only have a ton of talent, they have a ton of heart. They wanted this one BAD. Hey, not sending out a Warriors death knell just yet. It's one game. But it was a big, big win for Boston. They proved something tonight: Even with Hayward out, they are NO joke!

Long way to go folks, and once Cleveland gets some of their players back they could still be a force to be reckoned with.

to show how bad it is. i saw ben simmons could miss 90 of his next 100 shots and still have a better shooting percentage than lonzo ball does at this moment

Hats off to Brad Stevens. For the majority the NBA is players leagues ,where I think the coaches are interchangeable/expandable except for a few that make a difference, and Brad does. Losing GH I thought might hurt them , but they are playing great ball. It will be interesting once he comes back(next year I assume?) on how the rotation pans out and the whole team responds. I am sure they will be fine do to their coach.

Its a shame he did not stay at Butler, but hey, what do you do when you receive that offer?!?!

I like this quote from Danny Ainge about what he said during the 2010 NCCA finals between duke and butler.

https://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/29/sports/basketball/celtics-brad-stevens-e nters-sophomore-year-learning-as-he-goes.html



Minutes before the championship game of the 2010 N.C.A.A. men’s basketball tournament, the coaches of the two finalists, Mike Krzyzewski of Duke and Brad Stevens of Butler, gathered for the ritual handshake.

Sitting in the stands, Stephen Pagliuca, an owner of the Boston Celtics and an admirer of the Blue Devils, said, “There is the best coach in college basketball.”

Sitting next to Pagliuca was Danny Ainge, the general manager of the Celtics. He remembered turning to Pagliuca and saying: “You’re right. Brad Stevens is the best coach in college basketball.”

And that, Pagliuca recalled, was the first time he heard Ainge mention the name of the individual who is now the Celtics’ head coach.

“I was only trying to bust Steve a little,” Ainge said recently. “But I’d seen a lot of Brad over the years, and I was impressed by his coaching and by the way his teams played. I meant what I said.”

absolutely...Pops,Kerr,Brad Stephens(& yes, others are excellent-there are some really great NBA coaches)-those three are the elite coaches in the NBA.

Last night's game was truly excellent...Celts have talent & chemistry & i was surprised at the poor play by GS in the final minutes...blame the refs all you want-the Warriors shot themselves out of the game-live by 3 die by 3-yup,that's their game...but,a few layups, strong drives inside, even some post ups might have helped...nothing sinful about winning games with 2 pointers.

Thanks robslob et al -- nope the boys kept their composure down the stretch & played fantastic -- totally didn't foresee this level of play early on in season -- warriyz as dadof2 pointed out like to hoist the 3s -- Kyrie threw up that one from the parking lot in the final minutes that missed, but make no mistake -- he's been tremendous as was readily evident last night

looks indeed like it can be sustained -- the boys didn't have the look of a club playing over its head, or "overachieving" last night

all the best, that was top shelf hoops

I grew up just about 20 mins north of Ft Wayne.
Some of my older relatives use to watch the Zollner Pistons play.
