Record Breaking Night for the Spurs

The Spurs had an amazing night last night with a record breaking 20 3-pointers out of 30 attempts.

Can you believe that? Holy shit!

The Mavs did NOT stand a chance…

Here is the breakdown:

Kawhi Leonard 3-7

Daniel Green 7-8

Tony Parker 2-2

Boris Diaw 1-1

Emanuel Ginobili 1-1

Stephen Jackson 2-5

Gary Neal 1-3

Patrick Mills 1-1

Matt Bonner 2-2

Pretty impressive no?

The Spurs ended up crushing the Dallas Mavericks 129-91. The Mavs having a tough season with Dirk’s absence but even with his return last night it wasn’t enough to match up to the Spur’s incredible offence. Which makes the Spurs 21-8 while the Mavs are 12-16.

Contract the Rainbow

So we were watching the Timberwolves vs Thunder game yesterday when this commercial came on.

Contract the Rainbow, Taste the Rainbow!

Pretty cute right? Which got us talking about other priceless Skittles commercials when Mark showed me one I had never seen before.

You HAVE TO WATCH IT! IT IS HILARIOUS!

which reminded me of this moment from The Office:

Ah~ just priceless TV.

And just because I was talking about Christmas, I’ll leave with this;

Enjoy!

Miami Heat vs Minnesota Timberwolves

Some highlights from the game.

I was surprised that the T-wolves were doing so well for quite a bit of the first half of the game. Especially without Ricky Rubio, who had an amazing first game back against the Mavs. They were apparently resting him so he would be back to normal sooner rather than later. According to Mark, they’ve been limiting his playing time to around 18 minutes per game in order to make sure that he gets the rest that he needs. So he played against Orlando but was inactive when the T-wolves were playing against the Heat. But Kevin Love is back. Although a few other members of the T-wolves are still out with injuries.

And what’s with that bandage on JJ Barea’s forehead? Reminded me of the old Steve Nash look.

Steve-Nash-One-Eye1Don’t you think?

And did you guys see that shot that Mario Chalmers made at the end of the first half during the Heat vs Timberwolves game? Beautiful!

I must say though, even if I am a Miami Heat fan, that they did make some BS calls against Minnesota during the game. Didn’t want to admit it to Mark or my father-in-law but there were a few times when fouls weren’t called or weren’t called correctly. It is what it is though. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Although, I don’t appreciate bad ref calls when it comes down to the playoffs, because then I get really pissed. We’ll see what happens with that though. For the most part refs have been getting better, or that’s what I think anyways.

Another funny thing was that the TV announcers started to talk about how basketball had become something resembling something like that of parents who want to take away jungle gyms after their kids get hurt. Uh…sure? I think he went a little off the mark with that comment and I’m not really sure where he was getting at but I still thought it was pretty funny.

And Battier was on top of his 3’s! It was so majestic when he would make each shot!

Although I must say, Ray Allen is getting old…he can’t hit those 3’s like he used to. Yeah he made one but it took him a couple tries. But, after all that I’m glad to see him play. I kind of wish they would give Mike Miller more minutes. I believe he still has potential.

And we’re going to a Timberwolves game next week so I’ll have updates on that as well!

And I can’t just leave you guys with nothing so here it is:

A commercial with Shaq and Nick Cannon…training. I thought it was entertaining. Lolz. Enjoy.

Finals are over AND I AM BACK! I SWEAR IT!

What better way to start a blog entry than with some more NBA commercials?!

It’s so hard to choose JUST one though. They’ve all been so hilarious lately!

But I guess since I am a Lakers Fan by birth here is a commercial with Dwight Howard as THE GHOST HUNTER!

I swear I wouldn’t hate him so much if he STOPPED MISSING SO MANY GODDAMN FREE THROWS!

I’ll have to post about that Brooklyn Nets game I went to on another post…

And if you liked that commercial, there’s one with Ricky Rubio as a backyard wrestler…it’s pretty priceless.

It’s weird though because I’ve been more on a football kick lately so I’m just waiting for the Broncos vs Ravens game on Sunday!

I am stoked! I know it’s going to be a good game.

Dude, what would the Broncos DO without Peyton Manning??

Overall the Broncos have more total yards per game, passing yards per game, points per game, third-down conversions and possession times. The only thing the Ravens have got on us are Rushing Yards per game but hopefully that won’t be an issue come Sunday. I know that a lot of crazy stuff can happen in football, especially with the Texans taking such a severe beating on Monday from the Patriots, but I still believe in Peyton Manning!

It’s finally paying off to be a Broncos fan! I knew I would see them be glorious again!

And I’ve been writing a lot more original stuff in school so hopefully I can continue that and go somewhere with it.

Boy have I missed you guys!

Why did you have to leave us?

So I was like, “Why are the Charlotte Bobcats doing so well?”

Answer? Two words.

Ramon Sessions.

And what are with all the jersey changes this year?

Just because the end of the world is coming this year DOESN’T MEAN that we can just let go of our understanding of stylishness and fashion.

Really? All it says is just “CATS”?

What, are they all going to come out and preform a number from the musical cats? Can you imagine Ramon Sessions and Brendan Haywood singing Allegorical Cats? Really guys? It’s gotten just plain silly now. The Lakers might as well have a big lake on their jerseys if this is how we’re looking at things now.

The Lakers should have kept Ramon Sessions…we’d be doing a lot better than we are now. That’s for sure.

But I’m happy that he is at least on a winning team. He at least deserves that much.

The Raptor Strikes Again!

My man Chris Bosh is single-handedly smoking the Nuggets right now!
(Well, we’re only 1 point ahead at this point, but still).

32 points, 7 rebounds, and 1 assist with 27 minutes played!

But the Nuggets are all contributing point wise so the Heat will have to stay on their toes to win this one but I know we can do it!

We just let New York win because we felt bad…too soon? … Maybe.

I’m glad Iguodala gets to shine on the Nuggets though. It’s going to be an interesting season for the Nuggets this year.

Sad News?

The Bobcats are doing better than the Lakers.

Worse opening tip off in 45 year history for the Lakers? Mark says things will get better and that when Steve Nash comes back that the Lakers will be a good team but somehow I highly doubt that. To lose against the Clippers was a low blow, especially for me since the Clippers are the #2 team for LA. Psh. Clippers suck. If Blake Griffin gets most improved player of the year…I don’t know what I’m going to do with my life. But, that’s never going to happen so I have nothing to worry about.

And here’s what I was talking about earlier with Rasheed. Glad to see him back.

Stupid NBA TV/League Pass bullshit. Just let me watch some games on my TV! I’ve had enough college football for today.

Blake Griffin goes back in time…again!

I couldn’t help myself! So here it is…

another Blake Griffin Kia Optima commercial where he goes back in time again.

Not as good as the 1995 one but still funny.

Ah~ why do I enjoy these stupid commercials so much?!

I’m still not going to buy a Kia Optima though…even if it comes with UVO.

When did Steve Novak make a deal with the devil?

Because MAN he was on fire tonight! He must have traded his soul because those 3 pointers just kept on comin! 5 out of 8 three pointers and the game ain’t over yet! And Carmelo is racking up the points today too! 30 points (as of right now).

I am so disappointed in the Heat today…It was such a messy game. Haslem, dude you were all over the place. Sloppy passes, too many turnovers and that goes for everyone. You too Lebron…5 turnovers = unacceptable! Our defense was horrible, I don’t know what it was today. We didn’t even have the opportunity to take many shots… Our shooting percentage was only at 35% compared to the Knicks’ almost 53% shooting.

It’s okay, the Heat will get their shit together! We’ll be ready!

And I’m glad Rasheed Wallace got to play a little today. Did you all hear coach say, “Wallace, want to play son?” And all the fans were cheering which was pretty cute. Hey, I wanted Wallace for the Lakers but turns out he started those rumors on his own. Oh well. Glad to see him back.

And it is official, the Thunder royally F***** up trading James Harden. He scored 45 points today! (I still don’t like the guy, but I’m just saying).

And before I go, there’s another hilarious Blake Griffin Kia Optima commercial.

He goes back to when he was a kid…just watch it. It’s so fuckin funny. Ahh… I still hate you Blake Griffin. The other one where he goes back in time isn’t as funny, so just watch this one.

I hope the Lakers beat the Clippers…it’s too late for me to watch it here. Ugh. I need to go to sleep.

BOOO BLAKE GRIFFIN! That should have him airballing free throws for now. Night.

NBA season already?

Tony Parker was a BEAST! I knew the Spurs had this under their belt! OKC needs to figure out their team dynamics now that Harden is gone. Ibaka needs to step up but not like how he did the other day. Double Technical already man? It would suck to see the Thunder going downhill just because they don’t have Harden anymore. I’m sure they’ll figure everything out and be able to get things back on track for the rest of the season.

And what happened to Russell Westbrook? He was like Rondo from the other night. Just GONE! Making 6 out of 21 field goals? That’s worse than Kobe on a bad day!

But you have to give it to Leonard, dude got 5 steals that night! It was crazy! Haven’t seen a rookie improve that much in a LONG time.

And that full court pass by Duncan? Unbelievable! Man Duncan is the master of Full court passes!

And is it just me or is the new Spurs jersey just really ugly? What was wrong with the old jersey? The new jersey looks like something you would find at a flea market stall in the streets of Hong Kong. FAKE. It also makes them look like old men in pajamas. Please don’t tell me some art academy student designed this shit? You’d think with being such a well rounded and successful team that they would have top designers on jerseys. Maybe Peter Holt was just wasted when they pitched this idea to him. I rather have “Los Spurs” rather than just a big spur on the front. It kind of looks like a bad Forever 21 design. Whatever.

And in other NBA news I am so happy to have Ray Allen on the Heat. Man was he on fire the other night! Everyone on the Heat was making those 3 pointers like nobody’s business! And Ray Allen has still got it! I also won a steak dinner thanks to the Heat so I am one happy camper! Yummmmm…

And since the NBA season has started again I will write more!

And red does nothing for Harden. Just saying.
