Random thought: You think the East/West balance is off in the NBA, in Canadian football, the leader of the east division is currently 3-7, and the last place team in the West is 6-4

So if I counted right, we have 12 Friday games at home.  We have 12 players on the active roster at any given time.  We could have the top 12 guys each pick something that represents where they come from, and that be the half-time show.

The Clippers said that playing Golden State was good prep for playing us, while we played a team who's tempo couldn't be any more different that the Clippers.  I'm hoping that was one of the main factors in game 1.  If so, I like our chances of staying locked in now that we've adjusted.

Was just reading the Celtics-Lakers recap.  It's funny how people forget to check 'facts':


"Rondo missed Boston's first 40 games, after the Celtics lost Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen to free agency over the summer -- and coach Doc Rivers to the Clippers."

@L0rv @Air Bud I looked at all playoffs and just 20+ FGM, and the list is only 30 games long.  MJ had 8 of those.

@DCJeff Wizards last three games: Beat the #1 seed in the West, beat the #3 seed in the West, took the #2 seed to 2OT, even if they lose.  Not bad.

So the way things stand right now, that Dallas pick that could be unprotected in the future, would actually be ours this next draft.  Is that a good thing?

Totally random thought: I was on a work-related road trip yesterday, and The Heart of Rock and Roll by Huey Lewis and the News came on.  The city he mentions after Oklahoma City is Seattle.  Hmmm....

Anyone else notice that according to tankingforwiggins.com, we'd be getting that Dallas pick this year the way things stand right now?  Is that a good thing, or a bad thing?

Lakers shot 58% from the free throw line.  Are we sure Howard doesn't still play for them?

For me, best part of Thabo and Serge getting those shots is where the assists came from.

 To be fair, it's only the starting lineup the article is talking about.  Any other lineup is way better, which is the point they make.

 It would be interesting to know shooting % on unassisted shots vs assisted ones.  A team might succeed with lower assisted shot numbers if they were getting high % unassisted shots

 But at the same time, you have matchups like Dallas vs Miami 10-11, where Dallas was ranked 1 and Miami 26th, so with good teams that have superstars, maybe the difference in assists might point to something.

 Several of the lower ranked champs beat even lower ranked teams, like Miami last year being 20th beat us who were ranked 30th, or Miami 05-06 (17th) beating Dallas (29th).  Of course, you're talking about low assist teams even getting to the finals, so they have to have something that helped them get there.  The main point is, assist numbers don't seem directly related to championships.

In the last 10 finals, only 4 teams were in the top 4 in assists per game, and 3 of those lost (BOS 09-10, LAL 07-08, LAL 03-04).  Only winner was DAL 10-11, and they finished 1st that year. 7 of the last 10 champs were lower than 10th, and 5 were lower than the team they beat.

So the team didn't turn over information that they didn't have, and the punishment is to take away an asset we didn't have at the time of the alleged not-handing-over of the non-existant information.  Makes sense to me... #fail

Mentioned the last game stat in a different thread, but here is the cumulative +/- numbers for the Spur's bench by game. #1: +29, #2: -21, #3: -44, #4: -14, #5:-62.  Of course, Manu moved from the bench to the starters for the last game, so I don't know how much that mattered.  By comparison, our bench is #1: -29, #2: -3, #3: +3 #4: +25, #5: +45.  Game 3 included garbage time, so not sure how valid that number is.  I'm sure specific lineup data would be more informational, but I'm too lazy for that. :)

Spurs bench +/-: combined -62.  Since depth was supposed to be one of the Spur's strengths, that would seems to be significant.

 If he doesn't extend that left arm, I'd say it's 50/50 if they call a foul at all.  With Sef being totally defenseless in the air like that, I think you have to call it.  If the original block attempt, without extending the arm had knocked him down, then I agree with Miller.  With the arm extension, not so much.
