Yeah, agree on both points. Blazers look good, which is refreshing since that franchise has had some tough luck recently.

The Hawks, man, they just love to blow games. Josh Smith is a cry-baby flopper who drives me nuts.

I agree with Barkley's assessment last night. Without Wade/Lebron the Hawks subconsciously let their guard down, teams are usually psyched to play the Heat. The Hawks are very talented, mental toughness is a big question mark though. They had the Bulls on the ropes the other night, and cracked when Chicago started applying the pressure. They're a mid-tier playoff team at best, as high as seed 4 or as low as 6. Either way they're no threat to beat the Heat or Bulls in a 7 game series. I'm still wondering how the hell Joe Johnson got $120 million, worst....contract....ever.

Yep. 100%.

That being said, Atlanta can beat any other team in the east in a 7 game series....which goes to show how top heavy the east is.

I can't figure my team out. We beat the Knicks, Bulls and last night the Heat. With games like these we should have a much better record. Way to be consistent Warriors!!!

Kobe Bean Bryant dropped 48 points last night against the Suns. Fun fact: that's the most points scored in a single game by an NBA player in at least his 16th season.

Fun game last night in MN. D Rose and Rubio put on a show. Bulls opened up a huge lead, then Rubio helped lead them back to tie the game at 70-70 in the 3rd. When it was all done though, bulls won by 11, thanks to Rose and Deng.

As usual Noah was on the bench for the end of the game and Asik was in there. It's sad how much Noah has regressed, but Asik's emergence as a quality big obviously softens that blow.

Mainly his minutes are down.

My guess is that he either has some sort of nagging injury or (more likely) he came into the season out of shape and that's causing Thib to go to his deep bench and cut Noah's minutes.

I'm not freaking out at this point, it's good for Asik's and Gibsons development and trade value if it comes down to it.

Also, seems like Boozer is playing better which I was hoping for since he had the injury early last year and also was coming into a new situation.

Well, everybody beats the Knicks but yeah....to beat the Heat and Bulls is impressive. Inconsistent play is what drives me NUTS about a team.

Other than the occasional hyperbole Barkley is generally very very astute in his observations and willingness to actually speak his mind where other commentators wouldn't.
