Now that the playoffs are done, CB can score again. 28pts in 24min. A machine.

Wow, Bennett with a crazy 4th quarter. I thought he sucked before 4th.

Bennett was interviewed at the end of the game by a lady working for the tv station, and when asked what Tristan Thompson told him to motivate him in the 4th (he only had 2 points in the whole game to that point) He said that Tristan told him to "bring it" (He scored 14 in the 4th and was on fire) He then also mentioned that he played good and was motivated for representing Toronto. Kind of a weird interview, but he looked nervous for one of his first after game interviews.

Michael Beasley Punches Himself During Game, Needs Treatment Later | Bleacher Report


Quote:
After being tossed a life preserver in the form of a non-guaranteed contract from the Heat, Beasley had the chance to rewrite his basketball story.

Chapter 1 started with his preseason debut in Miami's 112-107 win over the Detroit Pistons on Thursday. And yes, it was painful. But not in the way you might think.

Upset with himself about a fourth-quarter turnover, Beasley punched himself in the head as he walked back down the court. These weren't soft blows, either—not by a long shot.

According to Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald, the punches were so hard that he needed medical treatment after the game. The Heat's trainer applied steel compresses—the same things cut doctors use on battered boxers—to Beasley's head after the game.

Now there's beating yourself up and then whatever you'd call this. What's more puzzling is that he was actually having a good game up to that point.

Beasley had nine points, two rebounds and a block in just over nine minutes of action. He wreaked havoc in the open court, hit the floor for loose balls and scored from the offensive post.

It wasn't a perfect performance, but Beasley told Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel that he gave himself a "B-minus, C-plus."

That assessment is even more cause for concern. What happens when Beasley brings his "D or F" game to the hardwood?

Because his NBA resume (10.8 player efficiency rating in 2012-13) says those nights are unavoidable.

Hmmmmm, Derrick Rose out today with left knee soreness. I'm calling it now, he'll be lucky to play more than 60 games. The way he plays, he'll never be the same again.

You're calling it? That's a bit douchey, no? Are you going to give yourself a cookie when that bit of sadness takes place?

What's douchey? I've said it before and I will continue to say it, once a player starts having knee issues it's trouble and a lot of the time they are never the same. He's already feeling soreness in that knee, and the way he plays I predict he'll have further problems. Not saying I want him to, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least. I pretty much expect it.

He's one of my favorite players to watch, but I still feel the same way.

Bargnani looks terrible. It's so nice to be able to enjoy that.

Lol look at this post from the RealGM Knicks board:

Quote:
The paradox about Bargnani is that his level of engagement in the game is proportionate to how much his coach yells at him, apparently. There was a time where he was a defensive beast under Sam Mitchell, and then Bryan Colangelo made him loosen his leash and Bargs went back to being lethargic. I thought Mike Woodson would do what's needed, but it seems he's taken favoritism towards him and it's going to have the opposite effect on Bargnani.
This guy gets it though...

Quote:
Bargs is Woody's pet project, he thinks he can do for Bargs what he did for JR, meaning get the most out of him.

It'd be great if he can but this kid looks like he's gonna take a lot of work. His motor is non existent and he just seems tentative overall, even offensively, which is supposed his strength. If he can't handle pressure he shouldnt start. Off the bench he could build his confidence without having expectations, and I can't possibly see us being an elite defense with him playing big minutes.

All I know is this deer and highlights sh*t he got going on aint gonna fly in NY. If he's incapable of playing hard the backlash from NY is gonna make T.dot look like a bed of roses.
