Shaq just said he always tried to come back early from injury. Then he says, 'I dont want to question Bynum and his work ethic and injury' then goes on to say that Bynum needs to come back already and that he doesnt want to play. Hilarious.

Why has Boston improved with Avery Bradley at point?

All players get to touch the ball more consistently now instead of just waiting on the perimeter, getting the ball in open spots every couple of possessions with Rondo dominating the ball.

Both Bradley and Lee especially have played well in Rondos absence because they're used more as ball handlers, and although they're not great as playmakers, they're good enough when used in small doses.

Kobe airballed his first shot then left after he tweaked his arm. He just came back. We'll see how his injury effects this game.

Eric Maynor is really helping the Blazers. I'm glad to see Derek Fisher back in OKC.

Also helps that Pierce can play some "point forward".

J.J. Barea of Minnesota Timberwolves has flagrant foul downgraded by NBA - ESPN

Quote:
J.J. Barea's confrontation with Ray Allen got him ejected from Minnesota's game against Miami on Monday night. One day later, the NBA ruled that Barea never should have been ejected.

Barea was encouraged by the correction, but it came a little too late for Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman. The NBA downgraded a flagrant 2 on Barea to a flagrant 1 on Tuesday, meaning Barea will not face a fine or suspension for his foul on Allen.

"The NBA did a good job looking at it," Barea said after practice Tuesday. "It wasn't that bad. It's all right."

Barea knocked Allen to the court with a chest bump and Allen immediately took exception and confronted Barea. Officials initially ruled it a Flagrant 1, which gives the opponent two shots and the ball. Upon reviewing the play, referee Ed Malloy changed it to a Flagrant 2, which brings an automatic ejection. The Wolves were down six at the time, but Miami responded with a 17-5 run to put the game away.

Adelman picked up a rare technical foul while arguing that call and a few others after it. Even after watching replays of the play, Adelman was still baffled by Malloy's decision to eject Barea.

"I'm just wondering what is the criteria here? What are you guys looking at over there?" Adelman said of the review process. "We can't go near it, so I don't know what they're looking at. They obviously made a judgment and it's unfortunate."

Hornets scored 67 in the first half vs Lakers. Then choke away a 20 point lead, scoring 9 in the 4th.

Steve Nash with 5 points and 1 assist.

The Heat and Lakers games were fucking painful to watch.

The Heat game because they got every call down the stretch and the Magic got 0 calls in the paint, and the Lakers game because Monty Williams intentionally lost the game by benching Davis for Lopez the entire 4th quarter. 33-9 in the 4th. Williams should be fined by the NBA.

The LAL beat the NOH 108-102.

Key fact in this game: NOH were up 93-75 to start the 4th Q. NOH only SCORED 9 POINTS IN THE 4TH Q.

Big win for LAL.

Lopez benched for whole quarter... still plays 40 minutes the whole game.

Monty wanted some tips on how to lose games in the 4th.... so he called up Casey and said "what would YOU do?".

Painful for me to watch the boxscore of that game. I left Farouq-Aminu on the bench tonight for my fantasy team because I figured he wouldn't play well against the Lakers. Boy was I wrong. Fak.
