Really shocked how well Miami is playing overall this season........
Outside of Butler, that team individually is on the lower end of the league.

Also, teams like the Wolves and Suns have played extremely well (however, seems to be temporary).....

Nets + Kyrie doesn't seem to be working out (right now) and this is taking a huge hit on Kyrie's legacy. This season's team is actually better talent wise than previous season, but they seem to be playing like garbage.

Luka be MVP balling this year... Imagine if the Kings or Suns actually drafted this kid.


Miami is playing well because they have one of the better coaches in the league

Someone's gonna break the Kobe 81 eventually and Harden is probably the best bet. How close was Kobe's 62 in 3 to his 81? This could be Harden's tuneup game.

He scored 62 on 12/20/2005 and 81 on 1/22/2006, so we have to circle Houston's matchups in the beginning of January.

points aint what they used to be. scoring 30 is like scoring 20 a few decades ago. Coaches encourage their players to chuck and rest on defense.

I think the Washington experiment is over. Both Wall and Beal should be on other teams.

not sure if anyone is paying attention, but Fultz is starting to come on strong. Still not shooting the 3 well or often....but getting better by the week. Tonight 20 points, 3 Rebounds and 6 Assists. Starting to look like a worthwhile gamble the Magic made in trading for him.

Westbrook was 7 for 30 (1 of 6 from 3) tonight and Harden was 11 for 38 (4 of 20 from 3)....the only thing that kept them in the game was Harden was 24 of 24 from the line.

The Harden dunk that didn't count.

I find it amusing to watch the NBA try to justify its officials on this one. Sure, it's Harden, but that's just an awful call, and the excuse for refusing to review the call is pretty thin. I can understand why the officials had trouble wrapping their brains around this one. I wouldn't have thought it was physically possible for the ball to pop back out like that. But it did.

Yeah, that has to be one of the worst no-calls in recent memory. But what to do now? I would find it extremely unfair if the Rockets were truly awarded a W. Is that even possible? Even playing the last 7 minutes and change again feels unjust. I mean, they blew a 13 point lead and went to two overtimes after that dunk.

refs claimed you only have 30 seconds to challenge....and it took them over 30 seconds to try to explain to D'Antoni the call....so when he was not satisfied with their explanation and challenged the call, they told him his time had expired.

Cam Reddish had a big game tonight....25 Points, 6 Rebounds, 3 Steals and a block. Breakout game?

The debacle shows how bad the NBA refs have gotten....they should probably leave the result of the game just to highlight the ineptitude....

The NBA denied the Rockets’ protest, but the officials got disciplined for misapplying the challenge rule.

Will be interesting to see if Trae Young and Cam Reddish (combined) can eventually add up to more than Luka Doncic.

Seeing us vs teams like the Clippers make me realize the Pacers aren't getting to that level.

I cant believe that Luke installed a Box-and-1 defense the day of the game and it actually worked
