THUNDER 109 WARRIORS 114 F...DUB Nation holds serve but not after OKC's SLIM REAPER @kdTREY5 goes for 30 in the 1st half before spraining a Wheel!...RUSS & STEPH go MONEY Mayweather and PAC-MAN Pacquiao before its officially goes down!..."LOGO WATCH" + "REGULATORS Report OKC = Better than CHRISTMAS Day in the LOGO! #OKCvsGSW #RegulatorsOKC #DUBSAllDay

The OKC Thunder was going for it challenging the home team the Golden State Warriors at every turn. Then OKC's night turned for the worse as @kdTREY5 with 30 points before the break goes down with an apparent ankle sprain!

KD went down right before the half after a charge called on him as OKC hung tough. The Warriors with Steph Curry (19 pts 1st half), Draymond Green (14 pts 1st half), and Klay Thompson (10 pts 1st half) was a driving force behind Dub Nation staying getting into the winner's circle.

The Warriors leading 94-89 after three had their hands full the rest of the night with Russell Westbrook. He erupted for 33 points on the night including 18 of that 33 after KD went down in the 2nd half. The problem was Uncle Russ took no shots home with him shooting 11 for 30 and missing plenty of them late in the 4th when they counted most.

The Warriors closed with Curry getting 11 of his team-high 34 points in the 4th as G.S.W. survives by only getting to the line ten times to OKC's 24 times missing eight of them. Klay Thomspon added 19 points with Draymond Green chipping in with 16 points and nine boards.

Andre Roberson (10 pts 12 rebs) and Serge Ibaka (12 pts 6 rebs) were the only other Thunder players in double figures outside of KD and Russ. The Regulators OKC seven-game win streak is snapped as they fall to 12-14.

Dub Nation moves to 22-3 including 13-2 at home as they are on a torrid pace hitting the winner's circle playing Kerr Ball!

PELICANS 99 ROCKETS 90 F..."DWIGHT of Three Stripes" slide over it's all about the "BROW" of the NOLA Gumbo PELICANS as @AntDavis23 > DWIGHT HOWARD all freakin' day 24-7-365!...State BIRD of Louisiana HOOPS takes down CLUTCH City!..."LOGO WATCH" comparing NOLA Gumbo to RAMEN Noodles! #NOPvsHOU #StateBirdOfLouisiana #RedNation

It's not even a conversation piece or is it a debate comparing the New Orleans Pelicans Anthony Davis and the Rockets Dwight Howard. The Pelicans dba NOLA Gumbo Pelicans go into the Big Toyota  Corolla and beats the Rockets 99-90 as Clutch City makes some minor adjustments for Dwight Howard who is finally of the tarmac in flight!   

The Rockets down after one and at the break took the lead 68-65 after three on a Troy Daniels money ball. That would be the last time the Clutch City would lead as the Pelicans out their best foot forward in the 4th and close the door on the Rockets 99-90. The NOP shot nearly 47% from the field and held the Rockets in check from the field and the arc.

The "Brow" State Bird of Louisiana" Hoops Star Anthony Davis led all scorers with 30 points, grabbing fourteen boards, and blocking five shots. Pelicans PG Jrue Holiday getting back to his Sixers All-Star form added 16 points and totaled ten helpers.

The Rockets on a poor shooting night gets team-high 21 points and seven boards from James Harden and 17 points and thirteen boards from Dwight Howard with three blocks. Houston playing well leading up to Dwight's return plays a lot different with the big fella not making any excuses for them losing to the NOP tonight!

NOLA Gumbo Pelicans move to 13-12 while the Rockets fall to 19-6...

KNICKS 97 BULLS 103 F..."WEST SIDE Story Report" struggling at the "MADHOUSE" turned the "FUN HOUSE" for Opposition in the 2014-15 Season K.O.'s KNICKS going VINYL! #NYKvsCHI #KNICKSnation #BULLSnation #WestSideStoryReport

The Chicago Bulls with D-Rose out with an reported Illness and the "Bully" 'Melo Anthony out sick as well survives what would have been Jay Cutler-like catastrophic beating the Knicks going Vinyl 103-97 with Kevin Harlan, Auburn's "Round Mound of Rebound", and Pacers "Miller Time" on the call for TNT!

The Bulls used a late surge to hold a game Knicks Bunch that wasn't allergic to hitting the winner's circle on this night. See Red was led by the "See red Butler" Jimmy Buckets as in Bulls SG Jimmy Butler's game-high 35 points as he had 28 of that 35 through three frames. Pau Gasol added 20 points for the Bulls. Surprisingly enough the Knicks led 74-73 after three and Bulls Nation has seen enough especially with no 'Melo or "Gets Shots" J.R. Smith...Lol!

The Knicks were led by Bloodline Tim Hardaway Jr's 23 points on 5 for 8 from the Chicago surrounding suburbs. Amare Stoudamire showing sings of he wants to be S.T.A.T. a few more times before he hangs the Nike's up and moves onto to Dollar Tree Flip Flops added 16 points and six boards.

Bulls move to 16-9 while shooting 12 for 23 from the Arc with Butler, Captain Kirk Hinrich, and Nikola Mirotic combining for 8 for 15. Knicks going Vinyl falls to 5-23 as NBA Basketball could get no worse in Gotham City for the 2014-15 season!  

MAVS and Team M.F.F.L. grabs C's Point God "Double R" RONDO..."SQUEEZE the ORANGE" talking Big D Hoops takes a huge step making more noise in the West trading for C's Point God RAJON RONDO!...The PARTICULARS in the RONDO to MAVS Trade! #MAVSnation #GREENTeam @RajonRondo

The Boston Celtics knew exactly what they were going to do a year ago and that was to move Rajon Rondo when "Double R" displayed to all involved his normal 82-Game Trek Doings! Well Mark Cuban known by many to never back down from anything short of high risk and high reward pulls the trigger on the biggest NBA Trade to date for the 2014-15 season and maybe even at the NBA Trade Deadline after February's All-Star Game.  

The Mavericks trade three players and send two future picks to the C's for Rondo and 2014 draft pick Dwight Powell from the "Farm" Stanford. Looking at the particulars of the Rondo Trade:

MAVS get: 

PG Rajon Rondo
SF/PF Dwight Powell

CELTS get:

SF Jae Crowder
PG Jameer Nelson
PF Brandan Wright
a Future 1st round pick
a Future 2nd round pick

The C's had no choice with all those young Guards ready to eat on that current Celts Roster and Avery Bradley is more than ready with 2014 lottery pick Marcus Smart looking really good.

As for the Mavs they get a 28-year old PG that messes around on almost every night getting triple-doubles! Now "Double R" will have players like "Mississippi Lightning" Monta, Chandler Parsons, Tyson Chandler, Devin Harris, and of course the Mavs G.O.A.T. from Germany @Swish41 as the NBA Soiuthwest gets more interesting day by day!  

UCONN 56 #2 DUKE 66 F...the DUKIES behind Freshmen "Big JAH" JAHLIL OKAFOR and Mr. JONES from Apple Valley Minnesota too much for RYAN "BOAT" BOATRIGHT and STORRS Hoops!..."CAMPUS HARDWOOD" talking DUKE Basketball heading into Christmas Break with a DONUT inn the "L" Column! #HUSKIESnation #BlueDevilsBasketball

With all those NBA Scouts checking out the "Next in Line" as far as true Centers in Duke's Jahlil Okafor it was Duke's other Freshman in PG Tyus Jones stealing the show. Showing so much poise a few weeks back in Duke's win over the Wisconsin Badgers in Madison, Wisconsin he did it again vs the Ryan Boatright led Huskies from Storrs.

Jones led Duke with 21 points on just eleven shots as his "Pace" and his knack for making the "Play" not necessarily the basket but the right play is above and beyond freshman play. Okafor with that #1 2015 NBA Draft Label following for a few years now added 12 points and grabbed ten boards showing his extremely high Basketball IQ in front of everyone. Duke's +16 on the glass was huge as was 16 offensive rebounds to UConn's 8.

Senior Ryan "Boat" Boatright led UConn with 22 points, six boards, and four steals showing he deserves a real serious look at the next level forget what you heard! UConn to reach its potential needs NC State Transfer and CP3 All-Star AAU Star Rodney Purvis to live up to his billing or they have no shot at march Madness. UConn's lack on any interior presence also was a problem vs the Blue Devils.

Duke moves to 10-0 and UConn falls to 4-4...

Ex-BRAVES Country Ace MEDLEN joins #BeRoyalKC and the Kansas City ROYALS!..."WORD around the WARNING Track" as the ROYALS add MEDLEN on the "Bump" with EDISON VOLQUEZ on back to back days! #KCRoyals #BeRoyalKC @KrisMedlen54

Through numerous media outlets the Kansas City Royals lying in the Australian Bush and striking like a Bushmaster gets another huge pick up. The Royals have added former Braves Country Ace RHP Kris Medlen to a deal worth a reported $8.5 million for 24 months with a Team/Player (Mutual) Option for the 2017 season.

Medlen went 15-12 in 2013 for Braves Country including a 3.11 ERA as 2014 was a wash as he went for Tommy John Surgery. The Royals will now put him in that rotation with Edison Volquez who signed with K.C. on Hump Day with Royals former Ace James Shield with both feet on I-70 on his way out of town!

THUNDER @ WARRIORS going Five-Star in "LOGO WATCH" on TNT from Planet ORACLE...KD and RUSS get STEPH and KLAY but it will come down to Supporting Actors looking for a LEAD ROLE!..#OKCvsGSW #RegulatorsReportOKC #WarriorsGround #NBAonTNTGm2

Here we go as both the OKC Thunder and the Golden State Warriors are 9-1 in their last ten games and     OKC has caught a Rip Tide with KD and Russ back on the beat. Russ of Jordan Brand and the Jordan 29 leads OKC in scoring but its his leadership by example and his "Win at all costs" play on the Hardwood that also sparked the Thunder.

The Warriors grabbed a Humble Pie on Beale Street at the Grind House earlier in the week snapping their 16-game win streak. They are running on the "Human Torch" and KLAY-metheus while playing "Kerr Ball" and the reviews have been top flight across the board. Now they get an OKC Bunch carrying a Measuring Stick into Planet Oracle.

The New York Knicks arrive at the "Madhouse on Madison" running on D-Fish, the Bermuda Triangle, and a disgruntled Superstar in the "Bully" of Jordan Brand 'Melo Anthony. with all that coupled with a N.Y. Jets like 5-22 without Rex and Marty.

The Bulls are 15-9 running an NBA Central that has no real threat and the Cavs have internal issues dealing with Mouse Town and Sin City NBA Summer League type defense that has them looking like a contender on night and a pretender the next. Bulls need to get home-cooking going as they are just 4-5 at the Madhouse and 11-4 coming out of the Red Roof and Motel 6.

TITANS @ JAGUARS in NFL Week 16 "Thursday Night Football" in "A QB Driven League"...Yes a QB Driven League as we get LOCKER vs Rook BORTLES and remember Teams can't get the NFL 2015 Draft without losing! #TENvsJAX #MusicCityTITANS #KHANstructionJags

The Tennessee Titans running on fumes for 2014 has two games left and they need to lose all of them to insure they get the highest pick in the 2015 NFL Draft they can get. Rook QB Zach Mettenberger showed enough promise to possibly start on the 2015 Titans Depth #1. Jake Locker's Titans Time is expiring and QB Charlie Whitehurst aka Fabio is Team Clipboard. Can they match a Jag's Team that is trying to finish strong heading into the 2015 Off-Season?

The Jags have promise all over the field in Rook QB Blake Bortles and a plethora of Rook WR's in Allen Hurns, Marquise Lee, and Allen Robinson. They just need to get Bortles some "Heavies" upfront as he has been sacked way too much looking like former Texans QB David Carr his rookie year which Carr spent more time in the Cold Tub then in the pocket.

That Jags "D" will be better as Lead Man Gus Bradley is a solid Defensive-Mind. That Jags Secondary maybe their strong suit as they need to spend some Duffel Bags at Backer and they need a Red Jersey Collector like Kim K does "Selfies"! Will they be bale to stop a struggling Titans outfit running on "When does 2014 end"?

#TENvsJAX Game Outlook

It's simple try anything to see what it looks like as the game plan for this has to be wide-open. Both Teams are frighting for two things in this one. The Winner moves down a slot in the 2015 NFL Draft but moves up in the AFC South as the loser falls to last. Look you line up to play but the higher the draft pick the better.

Both Coaches will get another year as Titans lead man Ken Whisenhunt must roll with 2nd year to be QB Zach Mettenberger and stock his 2015 Draft Picks at other pressing needs. That Gus Bradley Project I believe in as they need Fat Guys in the trenches as that's was the Blueprint building the Seattle Seahawks you win there lookout!

Winner: Jags 30-20...

GRIZZLIES 117 SPURS 116 F/3OT the Video...GRIT & GRIND behind the GRIND House "BIGS" Z-BO and GASOL get by the SPURS Family runnin' on DUNCAN, MANU, and D.G. of AT&T in Three Extra Frames for a "LOGO WATCH" Hump Day Thrilla! #MEMvsSAS #GnG #SPURSnation

The Memphis Grizzlies move to 21-4 and on the 2nd leg of a back to back Home/Motel swing they up end the Spurs in the Alamo City in three extra frames. It was dagger after dagger game-winner after game-winner and big time players stepping up in big time games period!

Key moments in #MEMvsSAS

Spurs down 34-19 after one only to be down 73-68 after three...

Conley Jr. game-tying money ball with 7.2 left in regulation...

Danny Green money ball with 2.5 left in regulation giving Spurs a 92-89 lead

Gasol game-tying money ball at the buzzer in regulation...92-92

Gasol game-tying lay-up at the end of first OT 102-102...

Courtney Lee potential game-winning money ball 2.6 left in 2nd OT making it 111-109 Grizz...

Duncan game-tying bank shot at the end of 2nd extras for a 111-111 tie...

Z-Bo all six Grizz baskets in 3rd extras for a Grizz 117-116 win...

Gasol led Grizz with 26 points grabbing nine boards with Z-Bo adding 21 points and twenty-one boards. The Spurs were led by "Dunc" with 23 points and sixteen boards with Green adding 25 points and seven boards and Manu dropping 21 points and eight boards and eight assists.

Spurs shoot just 13 for 27 from the stripe...

Spurs were +21 points from the Arc...

Memphis moves to 21-4 and the Spurs falling to 17-9...


HAWKS 127 CAVALIERS 98 F...the HIGHLIGHT Factory 404 takes their SHOW to the "Q" and hammers "BELIEVELAND" Hoops playing "D" like that DUDE in Clutch City!..."LOGO WATCH" with the PRISONERS running the ASYLUM in C-Town!

"Coaches coach and Players play" and I will leave it at that. Meanwhile the Atlanta Hawks in a G.S.W. like win streak needed no Chaperone to show them the happenings in Quickens Loan Arena on Wednesday night.

Atlanta used a 30-15 run in the 3rd after leading 65-60 at the break to take a commanding lead in this one behind the play of former Butler Bulldog standout Shelvin Mack from of all places Lexington, Kentucky go figure! Mack nets a game-high 24 points off the bench in 22 minutes and change including an "En Fuego" 6 for 6 from the arc.

The Hawks leading 95-75 after three walked into a 127-98 thrashing with Cavs lead man Mr. Blatt referring back to the Cavs Cuyahoga County Park District defense. Well who listening to who is it your huddle or Lebron James Huddle?

Hawks shoot a blistering 16 for 28 from the arc with Al Horford adding 20 points and Paul Milsap with 14 points and eight boards. Just think the Hawks didn't have dynamite PG Jeff Teague and if he was playing it would have been 150-98.

James and Dion Waiters (soon to be on the Cavs Trade Block) had 21 points apiece. Hawks also shoot some 65% from the field and in the Logo that is making all your shots with little or no Defense!

Hawks move to 18-7 while the Cavs fall to 14-10...

#ATLHawks (17-7) @ #CAVSnation (14-9) 
7pm ET

The Hawks coming off beating the Bulls in the Highlight Factory have a whole new look with All-Star PF Al Horford back into the Fold. Couple that with All-Star SF Paul Milsap and PG Jeff Teague with "Gimme the Hot Sauce" Kyle Korver riding shotgun. They are #2 in the Southeast behind the Wiz Kids D.C. as LeBron and Company are a 1/2 game back of the Bulls in the Central. Cavs have figured things out as far as the rotation and now they just all have to follow the lead of one King James.

Delicious Match Up: 
Milsap vs King James
Teague vs Kyrie

#Grit&GrindBealeStreet (20-4) vs #SPURSfamily (17-8) 
8:30pm ET

The Memphis Grizzlies hit the AT&T Center in the Alamo City a night after handling the then 21-2 Golden State Warriors. The Grizz still play lock down "D" and have added a consistent offensive arsenal led by PG Mike Conley Jr. and the "Grind House Bigs" Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. Now they get the Spurs who last last time out lost to Rip City Blazers with no TP9, Manu, and Duncan. "Dunc" should be back and the Spurs without the Big 3 run on Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, and Aaron Baynes.

Delicious Match Ups:
Conley Jr. vs TP9
the "Grind Father" T-Allen vs Kawhi Leonard
Z-Bo vs "Dunc"

#RedNation (18-5) vs #MileHighNugs (10-14) 
10:30pm ET on NBA on ESPN

The Rockets have been doing it big without "Dwight of Three Stripes" and when Nike Basketball's "Fear the Beard" #13 James Harden is rolling and Clutch City has the Spalding money ball rack out...lookout! They get a disappointing Denver Nuggets team that is still playing like the Dow Jones ...up and down. PG Ty Lawson will have his hands full versus Patrick Beverley. Can the Rockets if they have no Dwight match up with the "Manimal" Kenneth Faried and Russian Timofey Mozgov.

Delicious Match Ups:
"Fear the Beard" vs Arron Affalo
