Suns extend their winning streak to 14 games and are still behind the Warriors in the standings.

Gonna be a wild game between the Warriors and Suns tomorrow.

Wacky that the Suns have a 16 game win streak after playing 20 games and they're still in 2nd place.

Suns are on fire.

Kemba is out of the Knicks rotation. Will be traded. Only a shadow of his former self.

Sad to see Kemba taken out of the rotation. Hopefully a trade will do him good.

Nuggets are giving up 98 PPG in games where Jokic plays, 116 PPG when he does not.

Injuries just killing the Nugs this year. I could think of worse things than giving Bones Hyland and Zeke Nnaji as much run as possible and picking up a lottery pick for next year with (hopefully) healthy Murray and MPJ.

Booker been working on his mid range game top of the foul line like a cp3 . If he add a little head fake and foot work it would be Kobe like .

Bridges locked Curry down. Worst shooting night of his career. That was one hell of a feel good win.

Hope Booker's hamstring is ok. I honestly didn't expect the Suns to pull it off with him out after the second quarter.

Suns break their franchise record with their 18th consecutive win over Detroit. Their rematch with the Warriors is tomorrow night on ESPN as they bumped the Lakers-Clippers game that was going to air at that time.

In another record-breaking moment tonight, Memphis defeats Oklahoma City 152-79. The 73 point margin of victory is the highest in NBA history.

Grizzles didn't even have Ja. I guess that's the inconsistency of a young team.

Never would I have dreamed that the mediocre Grizzlies missing their star player would trounce the ever loving hell out of the Thunder in such a record breaking fashion. Yeah, Thunder are basically G-league, but damn!

The Washington Generals don't even lose that badly to the Harlem Globetrotters.

Have a bad feeling about the Suns/Warriors game. Pretty sure the Suns streak ends tonight. I'd be shocked if they pull it off after a back-to-back without Booker in an away game.

I'm curious how long Jody Allen is willing to let things play out with Billups, sounds like the players can't stand him and his schemes don't fit the personnel at all, either of which ought to be enough to cut him loose. Especially seeing how he was Olshey's hire, I bet he's gone within the month.

In stark contrast, I'm loving Wes Unseld Jr.'s work in DC. Michael Malone tried to get him hired as a head coach for years when jobs came open, and the Wizards are proving how right he was about Unseld's potential as a HC.

Suns really need Booker back. Good that they can still pull off wins without him, but that game shouldn't have gone to OT, and that loss to the Clippers was just unacceptable with how much they lost by.

At least they got DA back.

Zion is doing his best to be a tremendous draft bust. Piling on the pounds, being a total slacker not doing what he needs to do for his recovery.

He got paid with his rookie deal and all the endorsements, and now he's just fat and happy. His career is in serious jeopardy.

Yea, it is crazy to compare him to a guy like Grant Hill, who could have easily hung it up and retired after all his injuries. Instead he kept fighting back and ended up in the HoF and played in over 1000 games. Some guys just love being out there and fucking competing, others not so much.

Suns lost two in a row, first to the Warriors on Xmas and a nailbiter almost-comeback yesterday with the Grizz. Ayton, Crowder, Payton, and coach Williams all out with COVID thanks to Draymond Green's Xmas give of disease to the team.

Lakers are floundering with 5 straight losses. Sports media still covers them like they're the #1 team thanks to LeBum.

Western Conference is now a weird place where a .500 record almost midway through the season has you placed at 5th, whereas you'd be 9th in the East.
