melo with 62 and they're taking him out with over 7 minutes left. wow.
The best part about it is how insanely efficient he was from the field, 23-35, with a relatively lowish free throw count: 10 (he made them all, of course). Who knows if this will light a fire underneath the Knicks, but I'm most interested in how this effects Carmelo on Sunday afternoon*... can he even approach a game like this?
*The Lakers end their Grammy Trip on Sunday at MSG.
Hell of a game from Melo. Wow
What the hell did Melo eat today?
It's not too hard to figure out why, of course: A defense as flaccid as an impotent male porn star, an offense that shines in short bursts lately (and too infrequently for much of the year), to go along with all the injuries accumulated by this current Lakers squad. It's one thing to lose in Miami last night (a close, competitive game), but losing to Orlando (Tobias Harris scored a season 28 points... he's the 20th player this season to score their season high against the Lakers) is borderline indefensible.
I'm glad to see Pau being honest (even with his good month scoring* wise), showing that the losing is pissing him off.
*On the court.
Wow. Oh and team record too.
On and the ESPN guys incorrectly are saying it's an MSG record as well (wrong, that would be when LeBron dropped about 80 something on the Knicks a couple of years back)
What is Collin coward gonna say about that performance?
1) LeBron has never scored 80 something on anyone... his current career high for a single game is 56, which occurred in March of '05 against Toronto.
2) It is an MSG record... for the current version of MSG (4th building overall with the name). The all time MSG record belongs to Wilt Chamberlain, at MSG III (as a member of the San Francisco Warriors). He scored 73 in a game against the Knicks (duh) in November of '62.
Where did Kobe score that 81?
At Staples Center!
Thanks. Wasn't sure. Should have assumed that though.
I think Kobe would have dropped 100 that night if they hadn't pulled him from the game. Didn't he sit out the whole 4th quarter or something like that?
Nope, he played 42 minutes.
Ah yes, that's right. Checked out the box score for that game, and wow were those rosters horrible!
You're thinking of when Kobe smoked the Mavs for 60 something in three quarters.
Also, its a bummer they pulled Melo, but they were up by something like 35 at that point. I get why they did it. Also Celtics continue with the ineptitude, getting beaten down by the Durantless and Westbrookless thunder. Unfortunately, these things happen when you have D-leaguers on ten day contracts combining to play 30+ minutes.
That's probably the one I'm thinking of.
We are horrible this year, that's for sure, but it's also according to "the plan" of Danny Ainge. I suspect it's just a matter of time before Rondo gets traded too. At least we're not as horrible as the Bucks though!
The Nets are 9-1 in their last 10 games, and are within 3 games of getting to .500 finally. I am glad to see this if only because of my undying love for Pierce and Garnett.
You know, when I go to look at the standings, I always go to the Conference standings instead of the Division standings and that has prompted me to ask - Are the divisions even necessary in each conference, considering how many teams from each actually make the playoffs?
warriors had been slumping but got a big win over the blazers tonight. steph went off for 38.
Despite Jodie Meeks (6-8 from beyond the arc) & Pau Gasol (8th straight game scoring 20 points), and Manny Harris (18 points) doing some solid basketball work, the Lakers ended their Grammy Trip at MSG today with 7-point loss (ended up 2-5 on said trip) to the Knicks. Carmelo-Felton-Earl Smith-Hardaway Jr. were the difference makers for New York.
Post game hang out... Meryl & 50 sat next to each other for the entirety of the game. I wonder how much basketball they talked about.
With this loss, the purple & gold are only a half game from being at the...
of the West. Weeeeeeeeeeeee!
you never want to be at the wrestler's back of the west.
I was discussing this with a friend earlier: Although all NBA teams have long road trips, the Lakers (and Clippers) always have one in January because of the Grammy's. 2 weeks is the usual length of time for the trip... yet, in just 2 days, the Lakers will be back at Staples (against Indiana... oh man. ). Of course it's easier to take down the setups made for the Grammy's, but the logistics of the setup intrigue me. Why 2 weeks? Why not a 8-10 day trip? Is it done early, with the extra time spent for rehearsals? I want to know!
You just know the Lakers are going to wind up with a top 3 pick and retool immediately. It is written
