The Rox blew two late leads and lost at home to the Nets. The Rox led by 6 with 29 seconds left in regulation, but Spencer Dinwiddlie hit three 3s and the Rox missed 3 free throws to send the game to overtime. In OT, the Rox were up 7 with 1:28 left, only to see the Nets close the game on a 10-0 run. Ouch.

Oh, and Harden's line was 58/10/6 in the loss.

They are putting everything on Harden (as if they could stop him) & it may work....but in the playoffs? At the moment, the only that can stop him at the moment is a Paul return.

I think his biggest weapon is the referee calling fouls every time he is touched. Under the new rules the only way to guard him is to back away.--Yohe

The have so many injuries that it's hard not to put is on Harden. Hell, they are having to play Awful Austin Rivers 30+ minutes a game.

Boogie returned and naturally the Warriors win in a blowout. 14 points, and he had 3 3-pointers too. And with how the Warriors dominate from beyond the arc, you know a lot of the 3-point records are going to be broken by them.

Melo is going to be traded to the Bulls, but won't play any games for them and he'll be a free agent. He's the new Dwight Howard.

With Zubac now in the MVP conversation, the Lakers should drop Chandler to free up more playing time for him. That would also create a roster spot for Melo, and perhaps Tyson could find a home up the coast in the Bay Area. It's a win for everybody.

I imagine this is what sports talk radio sounds like in Boston.

Horrible news as Victor Oladipo suffered a season-ending knee injury tonight.

James Harden's out of this world scoring has continued, with 61 points tonight against the Knicks. One of the more eye popping stats in a while is this from earlier on tonight's game:

That's without Chris Paul of course. Be very curious to see how they'll improve the 2nd unit before the trade deadline.

Also at this pace, Harden should easily be the MVP again.

Well Jokic is having a fine year, so maybe he'll grab some votes.

Steph is the MVP. He's not going to win it, but he's the shit this year.
