Can you help out guarding Nene'?

Rare win (dare I say rout?) of the Jazz. Nene' keeps up his ridic shooting percentage from the field this year with a 12 for 12 night. J.R. fairly dominant too, especially in the 1st quarter. The kind of game where you can sort of just get "comfy" in more ways than one.

The Nugs do good to push a Boozer-less Jazz team a little further back in the Northwest division. It would be nice if the pesky Blazers would have a little midseason swoon right about now though. Barring something bizarre going down, the Northwest is one of the few divisions right now where the title is legitimately up for grabs.

I was getting very comfy during that game. And staying comfy. The Nuggs are definitely weathering this Melo-less storm rather well. He comes back soon, no?

Oh, and that Winter X-Games men's halfpipe judging panel needs to be investigated. Flying Tomato my ass....

I think Melo is supposed to return at the end of the week...

Nene has kind of been dishin' 'em quite a bit this year. Hopefully he can stay healthy and continue to develop all of that potential he has.....I guess you have to enjoy the Melo courtside fashion show while you can.

Yeah, you wear a coat like that you get a free bowl of soup with it....

OOOhhh! Captain Hook!

Dance of the Living Dead!

Nene and Kenyon's health might be more important than Melo's at this point. Granted Melo is the most important guy if they are to make any kind of playoff run, but for the team to have extended regular season success, a division title, and therefore a high playoff seed, the frontcourt tandem need to stay clear of the training room. Nene the only NBAer shooting over 60% from the floor. SEND IT IN BIG FELLA!

In regards to the Cutler photo, DT, you get freebies from EA Sports? damn!

I, 2nd the X Games judging panel investigation...wasn't even close in my humble, non-technical understanding opinion. Pearce went way bigger! And the Nuggs were up 20 on the last evening of the free Directv NBA pass preview so I could watch commercial free superpipe!

Only when I compare Wolski's deek move with that of an NHLPA '93 Mike Ridley (see Washington Capitals of the early 90's).

Is it just my home PC, or is there a reason I'm unable to see the Brad avitar?

Sonic Tooth said...

something has gone awry with Hamilton's avatar...

TroutDog said...

Is Brad still on the fritz? Seems to look normal on my CPU.

Is that final round of the superpipe commercial free? Oh why yes it is. Too bad it wasn't also sucka free.

Riggins getting his Ausie Open on? Roddick flaming in a first set tie breaker. Playing tennis on a 100+ degree F court? Fun!

DeathTruck said...

I only like my countdowns sucka free.

I'll den late night Aussie Open action "A-Fraud" squeezed one out! Pro tennis is so lame right now until Fed plays Rafa in every final. I do love Directv showing up to 5 matches during the 1st week so I can find the best looking Russian hottie with the tightest outfit.

TroutDog said...

I like your style with the direct tv scouting. That A-Fraud match was pretty interesting to watch. Didn't make it far into the fourth set before having to turn it off. The heat just became too much for my poor little dehydrated body. What a wuss Serb.
