Yeah, that boggles the mind...I can't fathom what the strategy was behind that...was hoping he would explain that in the press conference afterwards.

Do the Charlotte Bobcats still average ten fans per home game?

Because Randolph's a more proficient post scorer and has a generally more assertive mentality.

I got that. If you're going to give up a mis-match you're better served giving up one to the guy who less wants to take it to you. Hell Z-Bo was owning Sheed, if they put Melo on him they probably wouldn't have got the thirty minutes out of him that they got.

The Knicks aren't the Thunder of two years ago or the Nash-era Suns, though. They aren't hitting threes on the back of their transition game or on the first or second pass. They're coming from the half court set and good ball movement (from what I've seen of the Knicks this year, which admittedly isn't as much as I have with the Lakers or Grizz or Thunder... or hell, even the Jazz). While you are going to have times and nights where guys aren't going to be shooting as well I thought it stood out a lot that it came on a night where they hadn't been letting the ball do the work.

You're lost dude. I'm talking about his horrible commentary from last night and just being honest about why I don't like the guy to begin with.

I was never looking for any kind of sympathy to begin with.

Man does Jeremy Lin sucks. He's getting worse as the season goes on. I dare say the Rockets paid a tad bit to much for him.

Lakers are already playing like a D'Antoni team, scoring over 110 pts but also allowing over 100 pts to their opponents. I hope they'll tighten the defense up soon.

I had a dream last night that *I* was coaching the Lakers. I was running a practice with them and doing some passing drill that makes no sense to me at all since I don't eve remember doing it in school or anything.

I don't know if that is some type of premonition of the Lakers running into a ditch this season because I have no clue on where you would start in coaching a team. I'm not even a Laker fan anyways so what the heck.

2012-13 Power Rankings: Week 3

COMMENTS

RANK

TRENDING

TEAM / RECORD



Unbeaten in November. Fifteen straight wins at home dating

4

to last season. Victories over the Heat (home), Thunder (road)



1 Memphis

and Knicks (home) in succession to put the Q in quality win.

LastWeek:

8-1

Trailing only the Knicks (+10.5) and Clippers (+9.3) in per-

5

game point margin (+9.0). Any questions?



Fun trivia morsel for your Monday lunch: These Knicks are the

--

first team ever to get outrebounded in every game of a 6-0



2 New York

start. The skeptics, of course, will point to that as evidence of

7-1



LastWeek:

the fatal flaw that comes with starting Melo at the 4, but 7-1 is

2

not the time for that sort of negativity.



Jamal Crawford is the league's biggest All-Star ballot snubee.

1

DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe have undeniably stepped it



3 Los Angeles

up. Even Blake Griffin is shooting apassable .667 on FT's

LastWeek:

7-2

hiked from last season's .521. And the Clips start the new

4

week at No. 4 overall in offensive efficiency and No. 2 in DE.



Shredding Denver after their uncharacteristic late capitulation

3

against the Knicks was a nice pick-me-up. The bigger deal for



4 San Antonio

the Spurs, though, was seeing Manu Ginobili start to look like

LastWeek:

8-2

Manu Ginobili in that rout of the Nuggets. His bad back

1

wouldn't let it happen against the Knicks and Lakers.



Looks like it's not just LeBron who has been liberated by a

2

ring. Chris Bosh is off to a sensationally efficient start, too,



5 Miami

averaging 19.6 ppg on 55.2-percent shooting while playing

LastWeek:

8-3

nearly three fewer mpg than inhis first two Heat seasons.

3

Which certainly helps when D-Wade (foot) is hurting.



Kevin Durant's first career triple-double justifiably got all the

pub, but the broader story is that OKC's ball movement in



6 Oklahoma City

general picked up significantly in the two wins against modest

8-3



LastWeek:

opposition (Hornets and Warriors) after a really bad night on

6

the ball-sharing front in the home loss to Memphis.



The party hasn't started quite yet. Not with Steve Nash (leg)

3

potentially out for another week and not with L.A.'s five wins



7 Los Angeles

coming against teams that are a combined 17-35 this season.

LastWeek:

5-5

But Mike D'Antoni will be coaching soon enough and Kobe will

10

be greeting him in an absolute Z-O-N-E.



Did our blatant overreaction to a season-starting win in

6

Boston andthat audacious one-week catapult to the No. 4



8 Milwaukee

spot inspire B-Jennings and Monta and the unheralded

LastWeek:

6-2

frontcourt combo of Mike Dunleavy and Larry Sanders to the

14

best start in Brewtown in a decade? We'd like to think so, yeah.



All the fantasy trade scenarios in the world don't change the

3

fact Josh Smith isn't quite playing up to J-Smoove standards.



9 Atlanta

Too many jumpers, too many missed FTs, not enough of the

LastWeek:

4-4

good stuff. He'll always get extra leeway from the lefty-loving

12

committee (of one), but we need to see more, too.



You have to go back to 1991-92 for the last time someone --

1

John Stockton was his name -- did what Rajon Rondo is



10 Boston

doing now with that sparkly average of 13.1 apg. And you are

LastWeek:

6-5

justifiably curious to wonder how long it'll take for the creaky-

11

so-far Celts to give us something else to talk about.



The Bulls are a shock to the system on so many fronts even

4

after you factor in D-Rose's absence. Only five games



11 Chicago

scheduled on the shortest Circus Trip we can ever remember?

LastWeek:

5-5

And then four straight Bulls' opponents scoring in triple digits

7

for the first time since pre-Thibodeau in January 2010.



The victims in this five-game winning streak have a composite record of 13-27. The most impressive win of the

6



12 Brooklyn

five came against the Rondo-less Celtics at home. Yet there is

LastWeek:

6-2

some noise coming out of Brooklyn courtesy of some

18

encouraging flashes from an improving (we think) Brook Lopez.



Don't know how often we can count on seeing the Al

3

Jefferson-Paul Millsap-Derrick Favors supersized starting



13 Utah

frontcourt trio that Ty Corbin trotted out at Washington, but we

LastWeek:

5-6

can say that fears of a sluggish start for Big Al faded quickly.

16

Six double-doubles in his last eight games took care of that.



The only lasting solace lately in Big D after Dirk Nowitzki

1

revealed that his rehab from knee surgery isn't moving as



14 Dallas

swiftly as he hoped: O.J. Mayo just became the only Mav

LastWeek:

6-5

besides Nowitzki and the departed Jason Terry since 2002-03

13

to string together nine straight games with at least 18 points.



On two separate Mondays already this season, Philly has

6

released a fairly gloomy Andrew Bynum update not long after



15 Philadelphia

these rankings hit cyberspace. The latest bad-news Bynum

LastWeek:

6-4

bulletin spilled out over the weekend this time and thus drags

9

the Sixers down with the subtlety of a gutter ball.



Did we get it right? Indy over Denver as the league's most

5

disappointing team as we inch toward Thanksgiving? The



16 Denver

Nuggets have their ownstrong case with Danilo Gallinari

LastWeek:

4-6

shooting 21.4 percent from 3-point range, Ty Lawson's so-so

11

start and JaVale McGee's inability to crack the starting lineup.



We break from our usual fixation in this space with either LaMarcus Aldridge or Damian Lillard to share, viaElias, that

3



17 Portland

Nic Batum became only the third player in NBA history to total

LastWeek:

5-5

30-plus points with five 3s as well as five blocks in that OT

20

win over Houston. He joins Clifford Robinson and Raef LaFrentz.



It has to end someday. That's what you tell yourself after

1

seeing Chase Budinger (knee) and J.J. Barea (foot) joinRicky



18 Minnesota

Rubio (knee) andKevinLove (hand) in the trainer's room with

LastWeek:

5-4

fresh injuries. Then you hear Brandon Roy, after his promising

17

preseason, needs another knee surgery. No words.



He'll be lucky to finish third in ROY voting, but Harrison Barnes

3

is quickly winning admirers in the Bay Area. When the Dubs



19 Golden State

want to distract themselves from the wait for Andrew Bogut or

LastWeek:

5-5

the loss of Brandon Rush, they focus on breakthroughs like

22

Barnes' 19 & 13 in a home W over Atlanta.



The Pacers lead the league in defensive efficiency and still

5

rank as the most disappointing team through the season's



20 Indiana

opening month. Which should give you a clear indication of

LastWeek:

4-7

how ugly their offense looks right now without Danny Granger

15

and with Roy Hibbert still fully in a funk.



The Bobs are 3-0 when Kemba Walker scores at least 20

7

points and really did just win three in arow. The bonus:



21 Charlotte

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is off to a promising start, too. So it's

LastWeek:

4-4

no joke to say that even Mike Woodson must concede the lead

28

in the East's Coach of the Month race to Mike Dunlap.



The focus inevitably is going to stay mostly on the ever-

1

swarmed James Harden or Jeremy Lin -- or absentee rookie



22 Houston

Royce White for different reasons -- but don't forget about

LastWeek:

4-6

Omer Asik. The 7-footer has five double-doubles already after

21

managing only one in his first two seasons in Chicago.



If you're into monthly awards, you're surely already wondering

4

-- like us -- how the folks in the league office who make



23 New Orleans

Rookie of the Month selections are going to choose between

LastWeek:

3-5

Anthony Davis and Damian Lillard. Davis has only played six

19

games so far, true, but his PER is a no-joke 25.9.



The Raps have dipped into the bottom third in defensive

1

efficiency, Kyle Lowry remains frustratingly sidelined and



24 Toronto

AndreaBargnani is shooting 36 percent. The consolation:

LastWeek:

3-7

DeMar DeRozan has played the best ball of his career since

25

getting that extension and Jose Calderon isn't far off.



Going 1-3 in a run of home games against Denver, Chicago

2

and Miami -- with a detour to visit the Lakers stuffed in there -



25 Phoenix

- is honestly one more win than the Suns expected. Ranking

LastWeek:

4-7

as one of two teams with five players averaging in double

23

figures (like Utah) just isn't as fearsome as it sounds.



All things considered? Pretty good week in the Magic

--

Kingdom. That 39-point fourth quarter out of nowhere in



26 Orlando

Detroit halted afive-game skid ... and their case for finding a

3-6



LastWeek:

third team in the Dwight Howard deal so the Magic wouldn't

26

have to take back Andrew Bynum has never been stronger.



Think we can pardon the Pistons for their inability to finish off

3

Orlando when they sandwiched a win at Philly and ahome



27 Detroit

trouncing of Boston around that lost opportunity. Don't forget

LastWeek:

2-9

they also had OKC down in their first game of the week before

30

unraveling in the fourth quarter. Progress.



The ledger so far: One suspension each for DeMarcus Cousins

--

and Thomas Robinson, one team meeting over the weekend



28 Sacramento

and five consecutive Ls overall by at least nine points. Making

2-8



LastWeek:

life no easier: Sacramento is shooting (yikes) 29.8 percent

28

from behind the 3-point line as ateam.



Weary of hearing about the Cavs' overmatched bench or their

2

bottom-three D or anightly point differential (-7.0) that also



29 Cleveland

ranks as one of the league's three worst after six straight Ls?

LastWeek:

2-8

Perhaps you'd enjoy this detour look at Kyrie Irving's off-court

27

marketability starring our own Darren Rovell?



With John Wall and Nene sidelined, Jordan Crawford is the

1

leading Wiz scorer ... at 12.4 ppg. Without Wall and the big



30 Washington

Brazilian, Washington also just became only the second team

LastWeek:

0-8

of all-time to start 0-7 or worse in back-to-back seasons, just

29

like the Grizzlies in 2001-02 (0-8) and '02-03 (0-13).

Yeah that was impressive. They've beat the Spurs now twice early in the season. Blake and Deandre are not a front court to be reckoned with.

I know the pundits will make waaaay too much of this loss, considering the Lakers defense was atrocious. But D'Antoni was the least of the issues tonight, he can't make people play with effort, I don't care what the scheme is. Half the team simply didn't feel like showing up on Thanksgiving eve apparently...

I'm not going to make a mountain out of mole hill regarding this loss, but to have lost by such a huge margin is imo quite unacceptable. I hope the Lakers will play better later on, especially when Nash finally returns.

Attention, Grinnell College basketball office: LeBron James wants the tape from Jack Taylor's record-setting scoring spree, which left fellow NBA star Kobe Bryant awestruck.

ESPN Radio


Grinnell College's Jack Taylor talks about scoring 138 points, how he got so many shots, the reaction of his teammates and more.

James, of the NBA champion Miami Heat, and the Lakers' Bryant took plenty of notice of the Grinnell guard's record 138 points in only 36 minutes of playing time in a 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible in Grinnell, Iowa. The Heat called their intern -- the day's designated shooter during a defensive drill for the team -- "Taylor" all morning during practice, and after the session, James was among those weighing in on the significance of the feat.
"It's unbelievable, honestly," James said. "I would like to see the game. I want to see the game."
Hard to believe, but after one record shooting night, a three-time NBA MVP like James was putting Taylor in the same breath as all-time superstars like Bryant and Wilt Chamberlain. By the end of his night, Taylor was 52-for-108 (27-for-71 from the 3-point line).
"I watched Kobe's game when he had 81," James said. "I watched some of the greatest games ever played when guys scored big numbers. There's two games that I would love to see: One was Wilt, when he had 100, and this kid, I want to see him, too. Sir Jack."

Bryant was astonished in his own right. "Wow. That's impressive. That's crazy. I don't care what level you're at. Scoring 138 points is pretty insane," he told reporters after the Lakers' victory Tuesday over the Brooklyn Nets. "How many 3s did he shoot?"
When told it was 71, Bryant said, "Holy s---. How many points did they score as a team?" Told 179, Bryant said, "That's incredible."
Bryant, who has a shoe that bears his "Black Mamba" nickname, has a theory.
"(Taylor) must have been wearing the Mambas, man. Only Mambas have no conscience to shoot the ball that much," Bryant said...
No comment...
