It must be opposite week!

The Clippers have lost EVERY game this week, including their loss today to the Portland Trailblazers, who they will play again tomorrow AND the Cleveland Cavaliers have won 3 games in a row.

Yes! The CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WITHOUT LEBRON JAMES HAS WON THREE CONSECUTIVE GAMES IN A ROW!

I am so proud of you guys!

And both the Cavs and the Trailblazers won by ONE POINT!

So sweet~

What can you say? Kyrie Irving has been on FIRE! Boom shaka laka!

He’s gone from 40 points against the Celtics to 35 points against the Bucks and then 32 points tonight against the Toronto Raptors!

Here’s the game winning shot he made against the Raptors!

Seriously. How amazing is that shot? He was NO WHERE NEAR the three point line!

Just wow!

It’s been one hell of a week! That’s for sure!

There IS a God!

NBA: Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Clippers

And how do I know that? You may ask.

I know because the Clippers have lost 3 consecutive games in a row.

Boy is it a good day to be a Lakers fan.

We’re FINALLY winning for once.

And we’re about to beat the Utah Jazz.

Although I must admit, Dwight Howard looks like someone from Shakespearean times.

LALtop12313

Look at his legs. He’s wearing, what seem to be, white tights.

Yes, they are athletic wear for his bull shit injuries or what have you but it’s still funny to see him hobbling around court looking like a jester of some sort.

But yes anyways, the Clippers have lost to the:

Golden State Warriors on the 21st,

Oklahoma City Thunder on the 22nd,

and the

Phoenix Suns on the 24th.

Boy has it been an awesome week.

Now we just need the Trailblazers to kick some serious Slop City ass and THIS girl will be ALL smiles!

For the GSW game all their shooting percentages were pretty low. They were missing a lot of 3’s and free throw shots.

Yes Chris Paul didn’t play against the Thunder but I doubt they would have won anyways.

And with Chris Paul still out for the Suns game, scores (and I’m guessing morale) just plummeted into the red zone. They’re field goal attempts and 3 point shots only averaged around 33-39%.

But I’m not complaining.

Every time Blake Griffin misses a free throw, an angel gets his wings.

I’ve been worried because I haven’t seen as many air balls from him but with only 2 out of 8 free throws made on Thursday, I don’t think I have much to be worried about anymore.

One little side note before I go though,

We were watching “Family Game Night” on TV because we had left the TV on the HUB channel and one of the prizes was for tickets to a Clippers game and the TV announcer introduced the prize as,

“You can win an L.A. Clippers VIP Experience! Where you can see such stars such as Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and…

LAMAR ODOM!”

HAHAHAHAHAHA. I swear that is what she said!

It was hilarious. It made my day, THAT’S for sure.

Ah~

Derek Fisher hitting those 3’s in OKC

I’m happy that Derek Fisher is not only getting playing time in Oklahoma but that he’s actually adjusting well.

Not only did he make a buzzer beater today right at the end of the first quarter,

he also made a sweet 3 pointer in the 4th quarter.

He’s made 5 out of 6 shots and 1 out of 2 3 pointers.

Another sweet win for the Thunder.

SUCK ON THAT DIRK NOWITZSKI!

The Unicorn may be down for the count but don’t count the Twolves out just yet!

A lot of fans were heartbroken at the loss of Ricky Rubio for the season, (and to be completely honest, I wasn’t one of them). I mean they call this a blog right? I’m being honest, don’t shoot me for it. But where as a lot of fans gave up hope of the Timberwolves being playoff contenders this year, I didn’t realize why everyone gave up so easily. Yes, Kevin Love can’t carry the whole team by himself. Yes, they need another young amazing point guard but was it quitting time already? I mean, I’m not even a Timberwolves fan but I wouldn’t give up on my team THAT quickly. Dear lord, it’s just one rookie. If you hold so much weight on just one player, you know there’s something wrong with how players are valued. It’s a TEAM effort people. Otherwise every game would be a 1 on 1 of every teams best player. What? Are we supposed to believe that a single player carries the whole team? (Not unless you’re Lebron James!) Haha. But anyways, the Timberwolves are doing just fine and everyone is pulling their own weight as well as supporting the rest of the team LIKE HOW A TEAM SHOULD BE. Of course they’re not going to be Championship contenders but we all know only a few select teams are even close to that. We watch the NBA to support the game as well as our favorite teams and players but this isn’t the end of the world. With this super compact season, players are getting injured left and right. I mean now we have 2 masked villains in LA. The Mamba and the CP3? Haha.

AS LONG AS THEY WORK ON THEIR FREE THROWS and keep up the team work, they will be fine.

 Kevin Love was struggling in the first half and his shooting was 5-13 but as he made his way into the second half of the game he managed to turn it around into shooting 11-23, not GREAT but better than where he was at the start of the game.

And surprisingly Pekovic has been playing well the whole game making 24 points (11-17), 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals.

Ridnour needs to watch the number of turnovers he makes every game…AND Pekovic…needs to watch it both on the fouls and the turnovers.

And as a team they’ve made 14 out of 22, 3 pointers, pretty good.

Love + Pekovic was a great matchup against Nash + Dudley

Steve Nash had 10 assists today. Too bad Amare is with the Knicks now… but Nash has always been amazing with assists, too bad it takes more than that to get a ring. Sucks but it’s the truth.

So basically, Timberwolves fans don’t fret. The season isn’t over yet.

You WILL lose to the Lakers this Friday making it a 19 straight win for the Lakers against the Twolves but that one was inevitable, Rubio or not. But they have an easy week up until they play the Thunder.

They play the Jazz on Thursday and they’ve been better than them so far so I’m sure it won’t be that big of a deal. As long as they keep up what they did today and play a good game then there shouldn’t be a problem in winning.

Oh and because this is somewhat related…

Kevin Love helped released the new Octopus at the Aquarium they have at the Mall of America.
(I’ve actually been there, it’s pretty neat. That place really is the biggest fuckin mall in America, dear god).

And the Octopus’ name is K-Love. Huh…

Oh well. Kevin Love fed it and gave it a basketball toy. Now we just need to wait 20 years for the octopus to grow to a ridiculous size so it can rape Kevin Love for releasing him into captivity. Sounds great. Maybe we should make a movie out of it.

Hollywood! I have an idea that doesn’t involve Jim Carey! Or maybe…

PATENT PENDING! Hahahaha.

What’s the point of this blog entry?

Never give up on your own sports teams.

Bobcats reign victorious. Los Bulls host Nueva York. Injured wolves battle Suns.

Bobcats

I feel like I need to write a blog every time the Charlotte Bobcats win.

Dear lord, I don’t even know how they did it today!

Granted it was against the Hornets who are 10-32 but that’s still quite a feat considering Maggette only made 2 points and played for less than 10 minutes. And the highest scoring player was Henderson with 15 points… But you know what they had going for them? Team work. Something some other teams can learn a lesson from. If you look at the stats the rebounds, assists and steals are pretty evenly spread throughout the team. There may not be a star player but by distributing the work I think they got a good thing going today. A little disappointed by the 5 turnovers by Augustin but that can be forgiven. And do you know what else is crazy? They made 0 out of 12 3pointers that they attempted. So their stat for 3PM-A is literally 0.0% and they still beat the Hornets…good for them. A lot of people are out today on the Hornets but I’m still proud of the Bobcats none the less.

Biyombo killed it today. Not only did he make an awesome dunk but also a game saving block. It’s because of days like this you’re happy you’re a fan of the NBA.

I just wish Michael Jordan would dish out a little for his NBA team, you know? Does he just have blinders on? Wants to give the underdogs a chance?

But it’s been like this since MJ’s been playing in the league. Encouraging the draft picks of some less than great players. Come on, how could you get rid of Raymond Felton & Tyson Chandler?!

AND taking a stand AGAINST players during the lockout when YOU WERE A GOD DAMN PLAYER TOO? Come on now…

It’s like owning your own business, just because you’re good at your specific skill it DOES NOT MEAN that you have the capabilities of running an independent business by yourself. And I feel MJ is one of those people, sad because he’s one of the best players of all time.

Maybe I’ll just watch Space Jam and that will make everything better.

Anyways, here’s Biyombo on fire!

Knicks @ Bulls

The Header for this picture literally reads:

Rose leads Los Bulls past Nueva York

Really? Does the NBA really need to make Spanish jerseys? I got it when it came time to fight the attack on immigration but this might be going a little far. Don’t ya think? I find it’s just another marketing ploy, but what do I know right? Dear lord what will future generations think when they see this? I don’t even know.

And a lot of people thought the Knicks might have a chance today against the Bulls but the Knicks haven’t won a single game this month and they’ve been 2-7 since Carmelo came back. Let’s all face it, I was right, Carmelo doesn’t really play well with others. What? It’s true. The only real question is…what do the Knicks do about their team now? They can’t trade Lin because they’d get backlash about that and they can’t trade Carmelo because they gave up everything to get him last year, JR Smith fluctuates on his performance. It’s not so much that they need better players, they just need to find a way to manage the players that they already have. They could be such an All Star team if only they could figure out the right game plan to match everyone’s needs.

I mean…it’s been a close game today. Besides 3 pointers the Knicks have better shooting statistics today but the Bulls have better teamwork. No duh.

They’re averaging better rebounds, assists, steals, blocks…less personal fouls as well as turnovers. And of course Derrick Rose kills it with 32 points.

Did I tell you guys about his $250 million contract with Adidas over the next…how many years was it? 10 years. Well he has the possibility to make that much money with all the advertising and what not. Geez louise! Imagine how many Rolls Royce’s I could buy with that kind of money!

Several.

Hahahahaha.

Despite Jeremy Lin now being overrated you have to watch this insane block he did against DRose!

Timberwolves

Not all hope is lost! The Timberwolves are still doing pretty well despite the loss of their young rookie athlete!

Pekovic and Beasley are bringing their A game tonight against the Suns! But like I keep saying. They need to work on their free throws. They used to be the champs at free throws but as of late they’ve been way below par. Sad but it’s the truth and don’t you dare deny it! Otherwise all their shooting percentages are above 50% as of the 2nd quarter. They’ve also made 5 out of 8, 3 point attempts so that’s a good start too. You never know, one of Mike Beasley’s 3 pointers might end up winning the game!

Should the Twolves really trade Beasley at this point? Just saying.

Wolves (or should I say Los Lobos) are leading the Los Suns 63-56 at halftime.

Now to watch the Celtics play the 2nd best team in LA…

Lake show does it again!

And the Lake Show is on a roll!

Lakers were leading by 15 then tied and it was a close game from the 2nd half on. The Celtics started bringing their game and the Lakers couldn’t stop the Turnovers but it turned out to be an amazing game among lifetime NBA rival teams.

You guys can watch full highlights here. Bynum was on a roll today! All day he was making difficult layup shots and even helping Kobe’s game by knocking in a couple. Fuck it was spectacular!

Ron Artest was ON Rondo like a beast!

What I’m disappointed about? The 17 fuckin turnovers in comparison to the 12 that the Celtics had.

Kobe was of course the leading scorer today with 26 points, then Rondo with 24. Rondo’s been killing it on the road this season and in conjunction with Pierce, they’re still pretty good.

Bynum had 14 rebounds and Pau 13. Overall our shooting was spectacular today! (Except for the free throws, which we’re usually pretty decent at).

Lakers Shooting Stats

FGM-A = 50.7%
3PM-A = 50.0%
FTM-A = 65.4%

That’s pretty phenomenal compared to how we’ve been doing the rest of the season.

Celtics Shooting Stats

FGM-A = 47.0%
3PM-A = 35.3%
FTM-A =  83.3%

FUN FACTS!

* The Lakers and the Celtics have met 12 times in the Finals

* The Celtics have won 17 championships and the Lakers have won 16. Combined that makes 33 out of the total 65 NBA Championship games. That’s more than half!

* The Lakers have been in 31 NBA Finals where the Celtics have been in 21.

* The Lakers have won 8 Season MVP awards and 12 Finals MVP awards.

* The Celtics have produced the most number of MVP winners with 10.

 I mean just WATCH this! Bynum lobs it in for Kobe!

Oddly enough I was wearing my Allen Iverson jersey today…oh well.

And no I didn’t watch the game from the stadium or from the comfort of my own home. I actually haven’t had tv in years. Sooo….I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to work out so I went to the gym to watch the second half of the game.

I actually ended up staying the rest of the 3rd quarter and all of the 4th quarter on the treadmill. I ran about 3 miles and burned over 400 calories by running at an incline. FUCK IT WAS INTENSE! And since I had such a great workout I treated myself with a trip to the grocery store!

I went a little crazy…

Yay! This is the crap that I eat! Now I can enjoy some nice Salmon Crostini while watching an episode of Chopped. But really, after that, I have to get back to writing my contextualization on deconstructionism…it’s getting there…

Now the Lakers are 3rd in the Western Conference with a PCT of 0.610! I’m so proud of you guys!

Yay!
