Cool. Calm. Clutch. Did I mention cool? Read the rest of this entry »
They say that a series doesn’t officially begin until the road team wins a game. I don’t know who “they” are but if that is the case then the Milwaukee-Atlanta series has yet to start. Meanwhile, Brandon Jennings is making the Octagon look like a prophet.
P.S. What’s cooler than being cool?
Acceptable answers: Ice cold or Brandon Jennings.
Injuries are a part of sports and will always be (unless steroids are not only legalized but encouraged, just kidding). And some players, and in some extreme cases teams, are cursed with a nearly constant injury bug that strikes at the most inopportune time, but to be fair there isn’t an opportune time. Two of the most recent cases are that of Michael Redd and the much discussed and unseen Blake Griffin. Read the rest of this entry »
From all of us here at Paints in the Point, we would like to join Milwaukee Bucks forward Joe Alexander in wishing you a very happy Taiwanese Constitution Day. In case you weren’t aware, Joe Alexander was born in the Republic of China (also known as Taiwan), but moved to the United States when he was two years old. Read the rest of this entry »
1. Los Angeles Lakers: The Champ is sure that the Lakers are glad that Pau Gasol’s injury hasn’t kept him out until Christmas. Sure the Suns have more road wins, but a 19 point rout by the Lakers earns them the top spot this week, again. A good early home schedule and wins against teams like the pathetic Nets leave LA looking good early.
2. Phoenix Suns: The Pacific Division certainly looks good this year. First team to 14 wins? Impressive. With Steve Nash dishing out double digit assist nights and the team scoring in triple figures, the Suns are winning ball games.
3. Cleveland Cavaliers: Lights out shooting against the Top-10 Dallas Mavericks cancels out the ugly loss despite a late comeback against the Charlotte Bobcats. Undefeated when the team scores 100, the Cavaliers are slowly clicking.
We have never seen a Thunder game, We never seen a Jennings era Bucks game, we have never been so excited.
1. Denver Nuggets: The Nuggets keep winning, in the West. Carmelo looks like he’s playing with more determination than ever, second in the league in scoring, the team is winning on the road, and J.R. Smith has had a hot return off of his seven game suspension, possibly due to his desire to be called by his real first name: Earl. The Nuggets’ ascent is surely helped by the Lakers’ current slump, but for now the Nuggets are enjoying their time as the Western Conference’s best team.
2. Atlanta Hawks: The Ivy Leaguer is a prophet, the Hawks have raced to an early 8-2 record. They have beaten both the Boston Celtics and the Orlando Magic, does a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers earn them a spot in the Eastern Conference elite?
3. Phoenix Suns: The Suns sit at the three position this week. With a very respectable record of 9-2, with losses coming to the Orlando Magic and the Los Angeles Lakers (last year’s NBA Finals) both played on the second game of back-to-back series, the Suns still impress the Champ.
