Um, first game, I'm gonna go over pelicans.
Hornet pelicans get their 2nd 1 of the season.
Uh, they were in 1 15 to 1 10 You're leading scores of the night.
Brandon Ingram, 25 points.
Devante Graham, 24 points.
Derrick favors 10 Cody's on with eight and CeCe layers Vontae Graham with 10 Dodo and Drew.
Holiday with 11 in 12 points and also a double double.
Um, Hornets day somehow are four or five, which is actually ah, lot better than I thought they would be at this point.
Um, I still think they might be.
They might be the worst team in the east.
Now there's the Knicks.
They're one of the worst team in these um, but they do have a couple of good things going for them right now.
Devante Graham being one of them, um, pj Washington Being another Terry Rozier, uh, continues to be the biggest waste of money that was probably spent this off season.
Ah, he finished 18 points.
5 14 shooting 3% from three.
Um, just not the stats that you want from a guy that you're paying that much money, too.
But that's Michael Jordan's problem, not ours.
Miles Bridges Another good player out of there.
Hey, had 12 points.
Um, there are a lot of guys in double digits, but unfortunately, and come away with the wind, Uh, let's go over to the pelican side who played a really good game.
Um, and although they have the worst record and they're obviously probably not gonna make the playoffs even when Zion returns, there's just a lot more excitement and intrigue with that team.
Um, he's had a lot of young young guys, and they even have a lot of fun veterans that I like to watch. Like J.
Red****, who? One of the great you know, shooters in the NBA.
Um, but they have a lot of young guys, and they're only going to get more fun to watch when Zion does return and they probably will win a little bit more ones on turns to, because this team is not bad.
Um, the best thing that's come out of the public and so far this season is Brandon Ingram.
Um, he's looking like, basically, he's looking like a gold star the way he's been playing.
Um, he just dropped 40 the other night.
I know he dropped like, 30 some tonight with that, um, only 25 points here tonight.
But the thing that's great about it is his shooting efficiency is way, way, way up.
Um, shot eight for 12 3 for four from three.
So he's taken more threes and making them, Um, And if you watch him and just the way that the ways mid range looks this year, how smooth it is, Um, he's just turning into a really, um, a really good player and could be an All Star.
I don't know, you know, because he's in the West.
I don't know if it'll be this season when he's playing at that level, that yeah, like he could be a little star this year.
Um, and you know, he always gets compared to Jason Taito Kuzma.
I think he's, uh, I think better than both, though.
Honestly, coups, much for sure who's most playing like trash honestly.
But I mean, look, like I said in my other Streams burger and give him the benefit of the doubt.
He's still young.
He's still coming back from that that ankle injury.
So he's got a transition.
His way back into this new Lakers team didn't look bad the other night against the Bulls, though.
Get to the other, uh, guys here on the team from this game. J. C.
Red**** had 22 branding rumors.
I said 25 9 rebounds.
Um, Derrick favors with the double double Kendrick Williams, 15 points drew holiday.
He added a double double with elevenses 12 points, Josh Hart at another 10 points and I guess Lonzo bald in plain and no longer playing tonight.
Um, in Frank Jackson who you guys know if you watched my streams, you know I love him.
Uh, due to out tonight, only three points.
Only 13 minutes.
I guess he sent into the game plan.
Let's go into UM, no blowout from tonight.
The Celtics at Spurs.
They took care of business.
Jalen Brown at 30 points to Mark Rosen, 22 for San Antonio.
Um, Jason Tatum had 19 points, seven rebounds.
Force. It's nice that line for him.
10 points a rebounds.
Um, Rosen forces Kemba Walker.
Eight assists, 26 points from Camel Walker.
Um, the Celtics were just firing on all cylinders.
I don't think they really lost control of this game at any point.
I know they went on like a 16 to 3 run early in the first quarter, and they really never looked back.
Um, Robert Williams at 11 points on the bench, Marcus Smart at 16 points and the big storyline.
Obviously coming out of this game is Gordon.
Hayward fractured his hand on a screen from the market Sod Ridge I saw play.
Some people were trying to call it dirty.
I don't think was a dirty play at all.
You know, that's just a regular screen that anybody sets in game and, you know, it's just bad timing.
It's just the way that Gordon Hayward hit his shoulder and um, really rough game from Marcus Alvarez only around here was shot four times in 26 minutes and only put up three points.
Um, so I mean, that tells you right there.
Just a rough day that the San Antonio Spurs were having grows and was still getting Hiss.
Didn't shoot too well. Six for 15.
But you said 20 points.
Patty Mills continues to be, Ah, six Man of the year candidate on the waste playing.
It's kind of going under the radar, but he's been coming off the bench and point up 20 plus on multiple occasions.
He put up 20 tonight.
Marco Belinelli, nine points Mark.
Tell the bench unit for the Spurs.
They're very deep team, honestly.
Ah, a lot more credit than they get.
But what sucks is it.
They really need some better play from guys like John K.
Murray, who I love, but they really need some better play for guys like him.
You only have four points tonight to for eight.
Overall, Bryn Forbes played pretty well.
You'd like to see do a little bit better.
Derrick White had a quiet night, only nine points.
Murray only, um, Forbes had 14.
Trey Lyles, who I thought I don't really know.
Um, if we've seen much of him this season, had a pretty solid game.
10 points, eight rebounds.
Um, and Loney Walker still get some minutes.
I don't know how much more minutes he's gonna be getting.
If you saw that, he definitely ****ed pop off the other night.
Um, and his minutes have been declining ever since.
But, I mean, we'll see what happens.
Uh, they need play like they need somebody to step up.
It can't just be Rosen in the markets out urge every night.
But, um, even to Rosen, you know, you can You kind of want some better play from him.
Um, you'd like to see him attempt more threes and hopefully make some, but I don't know if that's gonna happen at this point.
His career, um Mavericks act grizzlies.
John Moran missed the game.
Hey, he was already on load management, so that was another big conversation going on today.
The way I see it, the low man's one thing I don't mind at all like I really don't care.
I don't know why people care so much.
I feel like it's like this, like boomer argument uh, like like Michael Jordan would do this.
And Larry Bird wouldn't do this.
Look at how rough it was back in these days.
Um, but the main thing that is funny about those people is they're saying that they're the same people that are like, Oh, well, Michael Jordan's invest because you have six rings.
Well, the reason why letter is taking this low management s so that he can be healthy in the playoffs and play every game in the playoffs.
And as we just saw with its run Raptor what he did last year, it worked.
And they want a ring.
So he's maximizing his chance, Our chances that rings.
Um, I don't mind the little management, especially with somebody like John Rent who did have knee surgery in the offseason.
It seems like they're just being cautious with him.
He probably said, You know, I, uh, my need is kind of bothering me today, and I just want to sit out and you know, the Grizzlies, a team that they their expectations.
They know they don't have any playoff expectations.
They're just playing Thio progress through young guys right now at this point, and I really don't think it hurts him in any way.
I don't think it hurts John Rent in anyway.
You know, somebody was saying like, Oh, he should be getting the experience at this age is one game.
Um, if he misses 10 games in the season 82 game season, I think he's still gonna get experience.
Has shown that he can already play in, you know, nine games, Um, for eight games, I guess, for him.
So I'm really not worried about John Marin and the low man on an argument.
I know why people care so much.
It's not that big a deal, I guess.
I guess if you want to make the argument for people that buy tickets and they're like we're going in this game, then yeah, that was kind of ****ed me off If I was like Sarah bought games to go see Stars bought tickets to go see LeBron and then LeBron didn't play.
You know, I only go to a couple of games this season, hopefully more this season.
But um, you know, finally go to two games per season on one of the games that I go to LeBron's running, playing or eighties on.
Fine, but get out, **** me off.
But, like, I don't really know what they can do about that.
Um, for somebody like Kawai, who is you can't just turn on and off when it I feel good, like, Oh, I'm gonna sit out the days because it's really just based off feeling like, Oh, I will.
Don't I mean, the clippers air in a blind spot at the moment.
I don't think they need tohave copilot and play every game.
And, um, I mean, that they had so, yeah, I don't know.
Management were argument.
Um, Anyway, John Moran wasn't playing dumb ass. Took care of business.
1 38 1 22 Luca Dunk.
It continues to be an amazing this season.
24 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists.
Um, I just saw that line.
He's averaging almost a triple.
Don't think he's at, like, nine assists or something like that, Um, in the second year.
You could honestly, being a VP candidate this year, which is crazy.
Um, Jaren Jackson had a nice game 0.
3 points, um, and then Luke.
11 rebounds and assists for his team envoys and then Dillon Brooks led the Grizzlies Would rebounds.
Tyus Jones with assists, eight assists of 14 points.
So I guess he was the replacement for John Marantz.
That's why he was getting more minutes tonight.
Um Grizzlies stat box.
Jae Crowder continues to have a solid season over there for the Grizzlies as a role player.
18 points 50% from the field for for nine from three.
Nos VALEN, Tunis A guy I've been very disappointed in this season continues to disappoint me.
10 points, three for 11 from the field, over four from three.
Um, gotta get it up yours. I don't know.
I don't know what the problem is.
He was doing a lot better in Morocco.
Um, Kyle Anderson.
12 points, six rate from the field and brutal.
Koboko continues to get a few minutes and takes Evangeline eight points and 10 minutes for for six.
Some field I'm not bad.
So his minutes by improve over there in Memphis.
Um, for Dallas, Seth Curry at 16 points, Luca Dockage or really said 24 points during finished Smith, 11 points.
Maxie Cleaver, 11 points, Jalen Bronson, 13 points, Justin Jackson, 17 points.
Dwight Powell, 11 points.
Tim Hardaway Jr.
20 points off the bench.
So Luca was getting everybody involved in this game.
Um, the Mavericks, uh, did what they had to do.
Improve to six and three, and I forgot grew up.
Poor thing just set out this game.
So I guess you know another part of lower management.
Um, Mavericks are currently fourth in the West.
I have predicted on my podcast That's spot a podcast on Apple's qualified, um, that the marriage would make the playoffs this year and the weather even playing.
I'm still very confident in that prediction, but I would like to see them play some better defense.
They've been letting up a lot of points to a lot of shooting teams.
They just lost the Knicks last night.
That was with person is, um, maybe that was the Knicks revenge game on forcing us.
But no, they're a really good team and forcing us a movie.
D'oh! I just awaited playing warriors at thunder this game, Uh, thunder didn't really lose control at any point.
The warders did what classic warriors teams have done, and they were really huge in the third quarter.
Um, de lo at work point, Remember he hail and 19 points.
Um, and there was probably, like, five minutes left in the quarter.
And then I looked at again and he had 30 points.
So any hit that buzzer beer, they're they're tied the game, but, uh, the thunder he actually and score for the rest of booking game.
So that explains why they lost in the thunder end up getting away with this 11 14 1 away.
Thunder are four or five.
I mean, not bad for a team that, uh, really doesn't have a lot of expectations for this season.
At the moment, I still think they're gonna treat Chris Paul, um, get into the leaders of their team right now.
D'Angelo Russell, 30 points.
Like we said, Gallinari had 21 points.
He's another guy that I think they're probably gonna trade just because they're like the Thunder are obviously in a sort of rebuilding stage.
And there's no reason to keep guys like Gallo, Nori and Chris Paul on there, especially with Chris Paul's contract when they should be playing for, you know, championship contending teams this late in the career I hope the thunder don't do them dirty like the Grizzlies are doing.
I imagine that at least one of them, Chris Paul, definitely probably is gonna like requested trade.
Um, he didn't already request the trade, and I'm sure he made it pretty obvious he doesn't want to be there.
Um s teeter 0280 Thank you.
Um, Finger? Um, yeah, I could even see Steven Adams getting traded.
Uh, they got a lot of options without they got They got a lot trade value.
They want to keep stacking picks to go with ones that they got from the Clippers.
They could trade a few guys from this team.
Um, even teams that just need, like, role players, they could find somebody diable on the thunder like Terrence Ferguson here.
Um, jagga Lex Alexander will probably stay because he's so young.
Um, we don't like I said, they just have a large tree value.
Um, Steven Adams had 13 points.
Chris Paul of port of 16 points.
I'm just trying to keep a stock, you know, as high as it can be.
Um, Dennis Schroder had 16 points.
He's been Q got more than minutes there.
Um, I think he's, you know, more of, like, the first option there for the thunder.
Because, like we said with Chris, Paul, I don't really know how much he's really trying.
He doesn't want to be there.
Um, somehow, like Musk Wallace denies a ****ing job.
He has nine points.
The hollow had 88 points, easily had nine points.
Everyone really got involved here for thunder.
So I mean, they took advantage of ah, very undermanned Warriors team, a team that seemed to be inconsistent because one day this undermanned squad is beating the Blazers and going over time with the timber was and then one day they're getting blown out by the thunder.
Um, so I don't know the wars In a really weird place.
It looks like they almost start clicking in a way with these guys that they needed to start cooking with.
Um, But of course, it comes out of inopportune moment.
While Steph Curry and Draymond Green or both out steps might not return for the rest of season, they said it's unlikely that report came out yesterday.
Um, but I guess it's really gonna be fun to watch the low in this situation as the number one option leading this team.
Um, he's another guy that could be treated.
His stock is only rising every day with the situation that he's in.
Alec Burkes has been a really good storing option of past couple games.
He had 23 tonight.
Ride for 17 from the field.
Um, Glenn Robinson finally had what I expected from him.
While Curry was there, he had 18 points in for 12 to 5 from three.
Obviously, is getting a lot more minutes now playing 34 minutes.
And, um, who's quiet today? That, uh oh, the Pascal also past gala and play.
So that probably explains a lot.
I only watch the second half of this game.
I didn't even notice Pascal wasn't in there, a problem mistaking them for somebody else.
But but marquees Chris had 10 points.
Uh, he's a guy that I thought might step up a little bit more, um, from the get go.
But I guess it's coming a little late, you know, like I said, everything that's going on.
The word for announcing inopportune moment because of all the injuries.
Willie Cauley Stein also had 10 points, Jordan poorly and four points.
You played 35 minutes.
So you definitely want to see a lot from him or a lot more from him.
Ah, he's the rookie there.
So obviously these things are gonna come with time.
He's being thrust into a situation that's a little bit unfair, you know, for a rookie like him, uh, you know, he's not really on that, Like John Marin Karzai on Williamson status.
Um, he's kind of guy that you needed, like, progressively more time.
And I was just being thrown to the wolves, carry your starter.
Um, so I think he could still come around him and deal Oh, I can't tell which is which with the courts.
So let's get to the last game Rockets at Bulls, the Rockets.
I got a lot to say about this game, right, because I have ah, ah, very formulated opinion on the Rockets in the way that they're playing.
Um, this has been stewing in my brain for a couple weeks now.
It's not like I just came to this conclusion tonight.
Um, Jill Rockets.
They take care of business against really bad Bulls Team won 17 to 94 so complete blow out there, You know, never in question.
The Bulls dropped three and seven.
They really know how much going from the meeting.
Zach Levine isn't playing as well as he was last year.
I guess Kobe White has hasn't looked bad.
Um James Harden with 42 points, 10 rebounds and assists.
Almost triple Double Window Car Junior.
Um, Clint Capela 16 points, 20 rebounds.
So, being right from Clint, Um, yeah, I was the rebound leader is when the car junior 16.
Remember, we say assist leaders.
James Harden, Isis Zach Leaving five assists, only 11 points.
So that shows you you know where the Bulls are at right now.
In your best players, only scored 11 points is, um we'll go over the Bulls box score. First window.
Carter Jr Like we just said.
Thomas Sat arraign ski who have chosen as a starter over Kobe White Um before she even started 10 points.
Lorry market in only 13 points.
You know, he could actually be their best player in all honesty, but he didn't know when.
He's only putting up 13 points.
That's not good.
Do was a stud last year.
Um, not gonna take it out on him too much, obviously, was a ****ty game from ever everyone on the Bulls.
Except, I guess when the car junior and he's in a ****ty situation.
This because this team is just not good, not well put together.
Just looking at the names on this team.
Um, Chris Donnelly said, importing staties.
Young put up 13 points.
Kobe White put up 10 points, but shot four for 16 from the field and over six from three.
Um, so I said thing with him that's been on and off is just the efficiency.
The other night I think he had, like, 32 points or something like that, but again that he's another young guy, that these are some things that are gonna come with time.
I'm not even starting at the moment, so I think that's good progress A little bit slower.
Um Then some other guys like John Grant.
Like I said, and you will come around, come around.
He looks like a good player.
Um, so two rockets.
So here's my problem with rockets and why I question them as a legitimate team.
Another six and three, We're winning games.
Um, they put up a lot of points, but they're not playing a lot of defense.
They play defense well tonight.
But they played against the shooting Bulls team.
Any time they play against some, you know, really competition.
It seems that the struggle and looking at these stats looking at the bugle percentages, the thing that's gonna ****ing kill them is and Kobe Bryant is down over.
This is this James Bryan, James Harden the shooting, Just he's gonna shoot them out of games.
You'd even shoot that bad to write night for 1912 27 from the field line for 19 from three.
Um, I think that's like low 40 percentages and both those categories, but you shoot 19 threes.
Look, why Why are you shooting 19 threes? You go to the playoffs, play legitimate team, said play the Lakers, who are playing amazing defense right now.
You think shooting 19 threes, move player and only making none of them.
Do you think that's gonna win you the game? I don't think so.
Eric Quarter on shot three for 79 points um, Russell Westbrook over three.
That's been a long lasting problem with him going back to Okay. Okay.
See? Last year, his inefficiency shooting from three.
You did shoot 50% from the field.
Oh, tonight, 10 for 2026 points.
Um, quiet night on the other.
Seven rebounds to assist.
And honestly, I think, regardless of, uh, for two points from James Harden, Clint Capela was the best player on the court tonight for Rockets.
The 20 rebounds.
16 points, seven for 10 from the field.
He obviously just having a monster day on the glass of Monster Day download.
Playing great defense.
As we saw Lloyd, marketing was being locked up.
Tucker only four points once for three from the field.
The only shop reporters that's that, and actually something that needs to go up for them to be the gym, a team.
And, like, I know it sounds like a picking apart the rockets, but this is a team that has a lot higher expectations.
And some of the other teams that we've been talking about, you know, tonight in the last few nights um, no, They're expected to be a top team in the West and the way that trades that even making and you know, the expectations set by the owners and the way they're set up, they're expected.
Thio make the finals like there's supposed to be a finalist, contending team and the way they're playing, I don't care of James Harden puts up 42 points.
He only had nine free throws tonight, so that's good.
Um, but I don't care if he does, that is shooting numbers are just not where they need to be.
Um, when I was a step in the right direction, just efficiency wise.
But you need him to be a lot more efficient and especially wanna come when it comes down to playing these good teams, and it's gonna come to closing out games, close games.
The Rockets that had really been tested in that way and the ones that they happened and they lost um, Daniel House, though Good game 11 points.
We for five from three.
Uh, they need a lot more production from these roll guys there.
I don't know what happened to the depth that they used to have a couple years ago.
Austin Rivers Only six points.
Um, I know we're just looking at last stats here, so, you know, I'm picking apart stats, but I did watch, um, some of the game.
I did miss the end of the game because first of all, I was bored because blowout second, I had to go to work, which I met right now.
Um, but, you know, I've been watching warriors games all season again.
Only what are the six and three? There are only nine games in.
So that's why I'm saying this as words of advice to the Rockets.
Obviously, the problem Not going to listen this Well, you know, this is just my two cents.
Um, what they need to do to be a better team, Um, and what they need to do to be a contender.
And you know that like that, this is you get This is just the way that playing right now at the moment is not okay when it's gonna come to you later in the season.
And, like, I'm actually worried about the play becoming better, like I mean, you know, I'm just not very optimistic that it's gonna be better, because I think this could just be who they are, Um, because they've done this in the past in the playoffs, and it's cost them where they just shoot terribly, especially from three.
They put up a **** ton of shots, and they're not going in.
Um, so you know, I'm not optimistic that it comes back around.
A lot of people are saying it's only nine games in a season.
Well, we'll see.
I mean, I just kind of think this might just be who they are and adding, Westbrook's a guy who's who's not very efficient, you know? Overalls.
Um, I don't know if that hurts you or makes it makes it worse.
I thought it would actually make it better.
I don't know if it hurts you and makes it better.
I thought it would make him better know Russell driving and passing out for three, and you know, that could still come around.
But just the way James Harden is playing, I think it's detrimental to his team's just I So Paul putting up a **** ton of shots? Yeah, it looks nice when you have, you know, 40 points, but the way you're getting it, I just think when it comes to winning, you know, a game basketball, a team game.
It's gonna cost them in the long run, but 1000 for Saturday night's games? Kind of boring night, you know, overall.
Um, compared to last night, Friday's games were awesome.
Um, which I tried to do a stream last night, but SportsCastr wasn't going to me.
Um, tomorrow, though we get the Lakers and Raptors on the side for that game is Raptors fan, even though we don't have Lowry or Ibaka tomorrow.
So we'll see what happens there that might, you know, **** us.
Um, what else we have tomorrow? We got a lot of years to Mom now gets timber, waas, Pacers and Magic warts and sending six bucks and thunder chasm, mixed nets and sons, Hawks and trail blazers.
I could be a phone game.
Uh, that's in something.
I mean, a lot of these could be doing so tomorrow.
We'll have a lot of a lot of basketball, law, fun, basketball and football, and I should still have my football streams tomorrow night like I always do.
So watch out for those and all the new people that came in.
I gave you guys to follow and thanks against the phone figure, Teeter and, um make sure far beyond Twitter at Charlie took talk sports all night.
Uh, thanks for coming, guys.
