I am impressed by the Golden State Warriors’ two wins. They beat San Antonio in overtime 107-101 Thursday February 21st and they come up with a victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight, 100-99. Jarrett Jack really came up big for the Warriors. He has been Golden State’s hustle and heart and soul. He gives them offense and a steady pace for the Warriors to come through in games. Guys like Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and Carl Landry and David Lee have come through time and time again to score points when needed and get those rebounds when they have to. It’s victories like these that will help Golden State in times of adversity and staying put in times of distress.
This game finished at 1:22 AM and I am stoked. What an exciting game! The Warriors are leading 105-101 with 3.8 seconds left. The final score is 107-101 and the Warriors win one against a Spurs team that has won the previous 16 games against Golden State. The Warriors haven’t won a game against San Antonio since 2008. Stephen Curry and Jarrett Jack were definitely the stars in this game. Klay Thompson was pretty good too.
I guarantee it. There’s no one on this planet who can stop Lebron James. You can only hope to contain him. He and Dwyane Wade are an unstoppable force, forces only met by challenges from within will the Miami Heat championship be thwarted on their way to their second consecutive NBA title. With the ‘Birdman’ Chris Andersen and shooters like Ray Allen, Mike Miller, Rashard Lewis, and James Jones and role players like Udonis Haslem, Mario Chalmers, Chris Bosh, and Shane Battier, they will be tough to beat when you have an ultra fast break with James and Wade on the wings and shooters challenging you to put in the basket as fast as Allen, Miller, Lewis, Chalmers, and Jones can put it in.
Is Rose coming back to play for the Chicago Bulls? I hope so. This Bulls team desperately needs a star presence. Having Kirk Hinrich or Luol Deng out there helps, but they’re no Derrick Rose. Joakim Noah’s first-time selection as an NBA All-Star solidifies his status as one of the NBA’s best and elite players of the era. The Bulls are underrated, and commentators are counting on Chicago’s chances of having to make it on top out of the East in a hurry. I sincerely hope so.
The West wins and beats the East 143-138. Chris Paul is the game’s MVP and first L.A. Clipper to win the award! This is some news. Lebron James didn’t rule this night as Chris Paul got the award and Kobe Bryant got some last-minute defense on LBJ as Bryant’s defensive heroics ruled the end of the game.
It’s NBA All-Star Weekend! Lots of injuries to report, like Rajon Rondo’s torn ACL and Derrick Rose too. We won’t be seeing them this year. I expect to see them at next season’s training camp. I think the Eastern Conference will beat the Western Conference this year.
The Chicago Bulls got run over by the Denver Nuggets last night. What havoc the Nuggets ran over the Bulls. The Bulls had no chance. The Celtics played much better basketball than the Lakers did. Whatever did the Bulls and Lakers do wrong here?
