TrailBLAZERS 98 THUNDER 94...RIP City goes into THUNDER Alley and quiets all that Noise as L-TRAIN and LILLARD do what they do with BATUM and MATTHEWS on Stand By Ready Alert 5...@kdTREY5 goes H.A.M. but not enough...REGULATORS Report OKC "Forget the NEW YEAR's Eve Tilt...ASAP" Episode..REGULATORS...Mount Up!

The OKC Thunder had everything going until the 4th period when the Blazers tightened up on Thunder Mega-Star @kdTREY5 and start executing in the half court like no body's business. Behind their All-Star PF and PG All-Star to be the Blazers end to 2013 like they want to begin the "Fight for Larry" in Mid-April 2014...with a bang!

Behind a 25 pints and fourteen rebound performance from LaMarcus Aldridge aka L-Train and a 21-point and eleven assist game from Damian Lillard the Blazers show once again they are a Team not only in the West but the Logo to reckoned with as we get closer and closer to the All-Star Break. On a bad shooting night the Blazers do what you have to do coming out of the Motel...get Stops, execute in the Half Court offensively, and take care of business from the Charity Stripe and they put a check mark next to all three items. Robin Lopez (12 pts 5 rebs) keep rebounds, Nicolas Batum (15 pts) excellent "D" on KD late, and Wes Matthews (16 pts 7 rebs 7 assts) timely shooting closed out this one.

The Game was in OKC's favor and in the crunch they missed Uncle Russ at the point. PG Reggie Jackson is solid but his inability at times to get KD the Orange in KD's Comfort Zone hurried up their offense on a few possessions and late that cost OKC. KD ended with 37 points, fourteen boards, and three helpers but was  non-factor late when it counted. Ibaka had 17 points, Jackson 12 points, and Lamb 10 point as the only four Thunder Players in double figures. OKC shot just 3 of 14 from Arc and under 75% from the FT Line and in the end that played a role in the "L".

The Blazers move to  25-7 and the Thunder fall to 25-6 and get just their 2nd home loss in Thunder Alley. I have a feeling this might be a Western Semis Tilt in early to mid May.

Regulators...Mount Up!

HAWKS 92 CELTICS 91...No Big AL for the remainder of the 2013-14 Season enter "SAP" as he out duels C's Rook the "OLYNYK Clinic"...LOGO WATCH "Highlight Factory 404 > the HUB Hoops" #ATLHawksNation

A little afternoon tilt before everyone gets to their preferred destination for the New Year as the Atlanta Hawks (3rd Place in the Eastern Conference) go into the Garden and beat the Celts 92-91 behind a huge day from Hawks Prized 2013 Free Agent Pick Up Paul Milsap.

"SAP" had a game-high 34 points and fifteen boards as the Hawks move to 18-14. Hawks PG Jeff Teague added 16 points while Kyle Korver chipped in with 14 including a Money Ball as they were the only three Hawks in double figures. A poor-shooting night the Hawks won by going 21 of 25 from the Line as they shot a horrid 5 for 29 from the "Land of Plenty".  

The C's had two huge opportunities in the end as Celts Combo Guard Jordan Crawford missed both opportunities. The C's Starter did nothing as they combined to score just 35 of the Celts 91 points on the day. C's Rook Big Kelly Olynyk of the "Olynyk Clinic" Fame led with 21 points as C's PF K-Humps grabbed ten boards to go along with 18 points. The C's inability to knock down the Money Ball (5-20) cost them in this one as they shot over 94% from the line.

The Hawks move to 18-14 2nd in the Southeast 3rd in the east overall. The Celts fall to 13-18 but 2nd in the Atlantic behind the Dinosaurs of Toronto.

SUNS 107 CLIPPERS 88...Take Note Western Conference the JEFF HORNACEK led SUNS are getting it done in the PACIFIC...SUNS embarrass CLIPS in Staples "LA Sports Arena" Set Up...Slovenian DRAGIC and "Elevator-Man" GREEN doing damage! #SUNSnation #PHXhoops

They didn't see this coming but the Phoenix Suns did as it was billed ex-Clips Back Up PG Eric "Birmingham Baron" Bledsoe vs Clips Starting PG CP3 and unfortunately for the Clips it never got to that match up.

Behind a 61-40 halftime lead and leading by 29 points in the 3rd frame the Phoenix Suns go into Staples Center "LA Sports Arena" Set Up and smack the Clips. This is a reminder that Teams should never worry about New Year's plans and preparations until and they should let other worry about that if this was the case. The Suns get 26 points from Combo G Goran Dragic along with eight helpers as his partner in crime E-Bledsoe only had seven points. It was also Suns 6th Man and possible NBA Sixth-Man of the Year Award Winner Gerald Green who has 21 points off the bench including a memorable 14 points in the 2nd frame.

The Clips on the other hand looked spent as they couldn't buy a bucket let alone make one. Point God CP3 had just 11 points and seven assists as the Blake Show muscled up 15 points with DeAndre Jordan grabbing 19 Oranges but only two points. The Clips after a home-cooked meal shoot under 40           % from the field and the Arc. While they turn the Orange over 20 times and were -15 with the Money Ball. The Suns Bench outscored the Clips Bench 44-36 but the score would have been worse if Clips Reserves Matt Barnes (13 pts) and Darren Collison (11 pts) didn't come to play.

Suns making moves move to an impressive 19-11 before the new year and the Clips at 21-11 and all of a sudden its not the Warriors fighting the Clips in the Pacific but its the Jeff Hornacek led Suns in the Passenger Seat...Yikes!

BLACKHAWKS 1 KINGS 0...RAANTA vs JONES play "No PUCKS in My House" as HAWKS get by on a SAAD 1st Frame WRISTER..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison "GOOSE Eggs all over the Board at the MADHOUSE" Episode #BlackHawkNation #ONEGoal #FrozenTalkHAWKS

The Hawks needed a game like this to reassure they stay in "Lord Stanley" and Grant Park Parade Mode as they go 20 to 20 to 20 and Hawks Winger Brandon Saad goes Wrister in the 1st period and that stands as the only goal and the game-winner.

Just looking at how the score evolved you would have thought both Jonathan Quick and Corey Crawford were in net in this tightly contested contest. As it was the Kings Martin Jones in Net who stopped 29 of 30 Hawks Shots as he falls to a robust and impressive 8-2-0. Hawks Net Minder Antti Raanta was even more impressive as he stopped 26 of 26 the hawks by no know they have two Net Minders they can trust as that is straight battled-tested right there. Raanta moves to 9-1-3 on the season.

The Hawks now move to 28-7-7 with a Ice Games leading 63 points. The Kings fall to 25-11-4 and they have 54 points on the season as they hopefully get Quick back sooner rather than later. Quick is slated to be back early January as Team USA hopes to have him in Net as their #1 Net Minder for the 2014 Winter Games at Sochi.    

HEAT 97 NUGGETS 94...NUGS blow Opportunity after Opportunity as the HEAT get King JAMES back just in time to do WORK...LOGO WATCH "HEAT get on their Horses at 5,280 Feet above Ocean Water" #HEATnation #Champs305

The Denver Nuggets led 77-72 after three and the logo is all about runs and when the back to back NBA Champions are in your house you have to close them as they won't fold and close themselves. Having said that a missed Money Ball and a Turnover inbound pas to end the game...the Champs star in "Escape from the Pepsi 2-Liter in Mile High" as they beat the Nugs 97-94.

Ty Lawson of the Nugs led the Nugs Charge as he 26 points an seven helpers including five Money Balls as the sixth one if he hit it might have sent the contest to extras. The Nugs had plenty of chances but King James was back off of his one game absence just in time to deliver 26 points of his own, wait ten tables, and grab a half a dozen Oranges. Bosh nets 17, Wade County 12, Sugar Ray 13, and Regular Mario 10 as the Heat get "All Hands on Deck" for this "W". The Difference was the Heat with 28 attempts from the Line as oppose to the Nugs getting only eleven. That tells me the Nugs settled for J's instead of attacking after a home-cooked meal as the Heat come out of the Motel and stay aggressive.  JJ Hickson had 12 points an eleven boards for the Nugs.

The Heat move to 24-7 and back to back wins over the Nugs and Blazers. The Nugs fall to 14-16 and like the Grizz the West might have four Teams over .500 that won't make the Playoffs...wow!

PELICANS 110 BLAZERS 108...REKEhavoc strikes RIP CITY as "License to LILLARD" ties it with a Deep Money Ball and L-TRAIN misses potential Game-Tying J...DAMIAN vs JRUE goes Back & Forth as LOGO WATCH has an Umbrella in the PELICANS Drink #StateBirdofLA #NOLApelicans

The time is now for State Bird of Louisiana Hoops Coach Monty Williams and GM Dell Demps as they are on the fast-track of getting the Pelicans back to relevancy and making things happen in the west.

The 24-6 Rip City Blazers were in town tonight bringing with them two possible All-Star in PF LaMarcus Aldridge and PG Damian Lillard. The Pelicans were bringing some of the Logo's top Talent under 25 years of age in abundance and look whop prevailed in the end.

Lillard with 10 seconds to go in the game ties the game at 108 with a Deep Money Ball from "Death Valley" Baton Rouge Home of the LSU Tigers Football Squad. Then the Pelicans draw up a play for one of the toughest guards one on one in the Logo in Tyreke Evans  as he sinks a mid-range J to make it 110-108 with just a second left. The Blazers then go to their Big L-Train as he misses a mid-range J to tie the game up as REKEhavoc's J stands as the game-winner.

The Pelicans get Monster Nights from REKEhavoc (20 pts 5 rebs), PG Jrue Holiday (31 pts 13 asst 7 asst), and Anthony Davis (27 pts 12 rebs 5 blks) as that is the Core of the Pelicans Nest I was referring to earlier. Holiday took it right to Lillard as he has to be tired of hearing about the New kid in the West as Jrue was a 2012-13 All-Star in East.

Lillard didn't disappoint as he led Rip City with 29 points as L-Train added 28 and eight boards with Wes Matthews dropping 18. Give the Blazers credit they stayed close enough in the 4th frame to get a "W" as they know the OKC Thunder are waiting well-rested back in Thunder Alley for Tuesday's Tilt. Blazers fall to 24-7 and the Pelicans making a move in the West as Ant Davis is the key at 14-15.        

BULLS 95 GRIZZLIES 91...Bulls follow the See Red BUTLER and C-BOOZ 5 as they hold off Team GRIT & GRIND Beale Street led by CONLEY Jr. and the "GRIND Father" Tony ALLEN...WEST SIDE Story Report " #DaBulls > #GnG on this Night" Episode #BULLnation #SeeRed

The Chicago Bulls grind one out where they only know how to Grit and Grind and that would be the Grind house on Beale Street in Memphis Tennessee. The Bulls took a 46-44 lead into the 2nd half and hold on never letting the Grizz get closer than three in the 4th frame to eke out a hard-fought 95-91 Victory.

The Bulls Charge was led by 3rd-year SF Jimmy Butler aka the See Red Butler 26 points as both Noah and Booz grab ten Oranges apiece with Booz also chipping in with 21 points. Back Up PG DJ Augustin has been a god send for the Bulls as he also does a Yeoman's Job of 10 points and nine helpers playing ion the Bulls 2nd line. The Bulls stayed in attack mode hence their 42 attempts from the Charity Stripe as they made 33 of them. That coming out of the Motel not settling for Jumpers helped them get this much-needed victory as for the Bulls in their present state they are all much-needed.

The Grizz 26 points , nine helpers, and six boards from Point God mike Conley Jr. as he continues to be the most consistent Grizz player night in and night out. the "Grind Father" Tony Allen added 13 points with PF @MacBO50 Zach Randolph relatively quiet with 10 and 10. Ex-Bulls 1st Rounder James Johnson looks to stay in a Grizzlies Uniform for at least through the 2013-14 season as he adds 13 points and ten rebounds and playing like a Man the didn't know what he had until he dropped into the D-League...imagine that! Imagine also the talent Wake Forest had with Johnson, Jeff Teague (Hawks), and Al Faraq Aminu (Pelicans) in one recruiting class...Ouch...as early defections derailed Wake Forest before they could reap any of those young man's benefits as Student-Athletes.

The Bulls move to 12-17 as they need a whole bunch of Lil Debbies on the Schedule if there are any to get back to that .500 mark. The Grizz 13-17 in the West is digging a whole they may never come out of until the 2014-15 season when everyone is 0-0.      

MAVS 100 T'WOLVES 98....MAVS SF Shawn Marion throws away Government Name for this one and goes the "MATRIX 31" from the Valley of the SUN...the Lake OSWEGO MONSTER eats his Usual Helping but misses the potential Game-Tying J...LOGO WATCH "MAVS make it W's in CHI City and the TWIN Cities" #MAVSnation #TeamSharkTank #Matrix31

Remember the days back when the Phoenix Suns had an MVP-Caliber Point God in Steve Nash aka NASH-ty running the show. The Suns had some of Nike Basketball's Top Young Guns in Shawn Marion playing the "Matrix 31" and Amare Stoudamire playing "S.T.A.T." dominating the opposition.

Well in the Twin Cities tonight in the Dallas vs Minnesota Tilt Shawn Marion went circa 2003-04 Phoenix Suns on the Timberwolves. The Mavs hold on to a 100-98 victory after T'Wolves All-Star PF Kevin Love misses a potential game-tying J but not after the Matrix strikes. Marion goes for 32 points on a sizzling 14-19 from the field with 4 of the 14 FGs Money Balls with that awkward-looking release. The Mavs ironically blew a 62-43 lead at intermission as the 'Wolves come out after refreshments and go on a 38-19 tear in the 3rd frame.

The "Lake Oswego Monster" was responsible for that in 'Wolves Star Kevin Love who had his usual meal of eating the opposing Power Forwards and Centers who are dumb enough to take him on anywhere between the lines. Love had a game-high 36 points, eleven boards, and four helpers. His partner in crime 'Wolves Big from Montenegro Nikola Pekovic added 18 and ten boards. K-Mart of Jordan Brand chipped in with 19 and "Brew Crew" Brewer goes for 16 points. "La Pistola" 'Wolves Point Guard Ricky Rubio had four points but 13 assists and nine rebounds like only the Spanish Pistol does.

Mavs Bench outscore the 'Wolves Bench some 26-5 and that was a huge difference in the game. Mavs PF/C Brandan Wright led the Mavs Bench with 14 points as the Mavs move to 18-13 in the action-packed top-heavy Western Conference. 'Wolves again fall under .500 at 15-16.                  

WIZARDS 106 PISTONS 99...MONROE, J-Smoove 5, and Mr. DRUMMOND go Biggie-Size for PISTONS but they all did the JOHN Wall JOHN Wall in the end...the New WIZ KIDS strike the "MOTOR City"...LOGO WATCH w/ Point God J-WALL leading the WIZ KIDS to uncharted NBA Territories #WIZARDnation #WIZKidsDC #DCWizardry

The Washington Wizards made the commitment in the off-season to take care of their Core an pay their Franchise Point Guard turned to Point God and John Wall has not disappointed. Behind a furious 4th frame from the Wiz Kids DC they comeback from a 87-78 end of the 3rd frame deficit to beat the Pistons capping what the New Wiz are all about...follow his lead in John Wall.

Wall was magnificent as the Pistons Guards could do nothing with him once he got rolling. Wall had 29 points, four boards, and seven assists while attacking the Pistons at every rip. A 14 of 15 from the Charity Stripe also show you how he understands the NBA GAme when you don't let the "D" off the hook and stay in attack mode an at least get to the stripe. Wiz Small Forward Trevor Ariza who has had a rebirth in the 2013-14 season added 15 points, eleven boards, and four helpers with Beal dropping 13, Ne Ne 11, and Martell Webster 10. The Wiz shot right at 50% from the field and nearly 80% from the line and that put a check mark in the Win Column.

The Pistons Mammoth Front Line led by Greg Monroe's 22 points and ten boards, Andre Drummond's 16 and 16, and Josh Smith aka J-Smoove 5's 16 points, nine boards, and six helpers were not enough. It was the Pistons lack of good FT Shooting as they shot 60% and committed 16 turnovers. The Pistons Guards should no way go from the scheme of Inside/Out with the Bigs they have in the paint. That is a disappointing night from the stripe considering if they shoot 80% they win the ball game or at least send it to OT.

The Wiz move to the .500 mark at 14-14 and in the east that is winning a lot. The Pistons fall to 14-19 and that is not good for a Team with high expectations and more Talent than anyone besides the Pacers in the NBA Central.

Black MONDAY GPS takes us to RICHMOND, Virginia...BEREA, Ohio...EDEN PRAIRIE, Minnesota...TAMPA, Florida...and ALLEN PARK, Michigan...SUNDAY TALK waiting for that Call! #HereComesSecurity

The NFL Firing Squad is back with five new NFL Coaches on the Firing Line. To no one surprise it was Mike Shanahan (and Son Kyle) for the 'Skins, Leslie Frazier of the Purple People, Greg Schiano and they #FiredtheCannons, and Jim Schwartz of Restore the Roar. The One surprise and they just couldn't wait happened yesterday on the Cleveland International Airport Tarmac as the Browns relieved 1st-Year Lead Man Rob Chudzinski of his duties and that is "Karma" my friends. The way "Chud" bailed on the Panthers Offense last season benching players so they would be inept (ask some Carolina Panthers Players like RB DeAngelo Williams)...don't let that Door hit you on the backside "Chud".

The Details:

Richmond, Virginia...Redskins get rid of both Mike Shanahan and son Kyle as they reportedly keep all position coaches for the new coach. It is up to the new coach to keep or get rid of the assistants waiting. The New Coach will have to kill the "RG3 Circus" and retool that Defense on the back end. Shanahan went 24-40 and 10-6 in 2012 with just 1 Playoff appearance in four seasons.

QBs RG3, Kirk Cousins

Berea, Ohio...Browns Complex as ex-Eagles President now Browns President Joe Banner starts where he left off by firing a guy he hired last spring. "Chud" at one point had the Browns at 3-3 as they lost their last 9 of 10 and they regressed but they have no QB and that is a major issue. Banner should fire himself and GM Michael Lombardi off the Pats Tree will go after current Pats O-Coordinator Josh McDaniels who loves getting rid of QBs when he gets the Job.

QBs Brandon Weeden, Jason Campbell, Brian Hoyer

Eden Prairie, Minnesota...they get three solid 1st round picks in 2013 but they had a problem at a position where if they are glaring issues you will not win consistently and that is at the QB. Yes the Vikes need to find a few pieces on that "D" but they are a Train Wreck at QB and they need to address that ASAP. Coach Leslie Frazier had no shot playing Duck Duck Goose every week picking his QB.

QBs Josh Freeman, Christian Ponder, Matt Cassel

Tampa, Florida...the shocker is they get rid of GM Mark Dominik who spent 20 seasons in the Bucs Front Office as he picked Greg Schiano and you will leave with Greg Schiano. It all started wit a QB-gate w/ then Bucs Starting QB Josh Freeman and Schiano lost the Trust with the Players and if he said he didn't #FireTheCannons! They also spent a nice penny on Revis Island who paid no dividends at least yet...wait until next season.

QBs Mike Glennon, Dan Orlovsky

Allen Park, Michigan...6-3 after NFL Week 9 and they were an easy pick to win the NFC North as Packers A-Rog was out so too was Bears Cutler and the Vikes were in the basement. They finish on a torrid 1-6 in their last 7 when they had to go 4-3 or even 3-4 to get into Winning Time. No Discipline  across the board, QB Stafford needs to be reeled in as this isn't the Wild Wild West, and that Lions Cup Runneth' Full as the Roster is loaded and oozing with talent.

QBs Matt Stafford, Shaun Hill, Kellen Moore

The one common theme is two of these five teams on this list have QBs in RG3 and Matt Stafford. The other Teams suffered among other things poor QB play. Now of all the teams on this list the most enticing job is the Detroit Lions as they are absolutely loaded on both sides of the Pig they just need stability and direction and not taking shots at ex-Coach Jim Schwartz who I think made the Lions more than relevant in his tenure.

Shanahan might be done as he has done nothing since leaving the Broncos...Schwartz and Frazier are D-Coordinator's by trade and look for them to possibly get back in the saddle and Schwartz to join ex-Boss Jeff Fisher (Schwartz was Fisher's D-Coordinator in Tennessee for 10 seasons) in St. Louis and Frazier possibly hooking up with Lovie Smith if Smith lands Gig. "Chud" is an O-Coordinator by trade but it might be  awhile for him. Schiano is a College Coach and look for him to be heavily sought after at the Major College Level.        

EAGLES 24 COWBOYS 22...Believe It or Not it was the EAGLES "D" not the "O" that put the "BIRDS of Broad Street" in the "FIGHT for GEORGE"...A QB DRIVEN League FOLES vs ORTON was all the Hype #BIRDS #COWBOYS

The Eagles get into the Tourney and win the NFC East but it wasn't like they walked in as the Dallas Cowboys gave the Birds all they could handle and then some. The Birds struggled in the 1st frame only scoring a FG but that Eagles "D" held serve as the Eagles then get cooking in the 2nd frame with a FG and a TD as the Cowboys also get it moving with a TD and FG of its own. Score...17-10 at the break Eagles with the Cowboys having a little momentum on their side.

The 3rd frame of the 2nd half as all the Cowboys as they put a semi-long drive together and a short one and put up two FGs to make it 17-16 going into the 4th. The Eagles then go right to their Bread and Margarine on 11 plays and 60 yards capped of by Eagles RB Bryce Brown's 6-yard scamper to put the Birds up 24-16.

The Cowboys come right back with the game in the balance and in just a little over two minutes and some change get a 4th and 9 conversion to WR Dez Bryant for a 8 yard slant that went for a 32-yard TD as the Eagles went Casino Blitz (All In..Man Coverage on All Players eligible). The 'Boys missed the 3rd down conversion to make it 24-22 Eagles and the Cowboys needed to stop the Eagles and they did on the next series to set up this.

Cowboys QB Kyle Orton to this point has played remarkably well and then on the last drive where all they needed was a FG Orton throws a INT on a slant route intended for Cowboys WR Miles Austin to end the game. Eagles win by the final 24-22 and the Cowboys go home yet again at 8-8.

Eagles RB LeSean "Shady" McCoy gets the NFL Rushing Title with 1,607 yards Nick Foles now will face Drew Brees in the NFC Wild Card Game #1 on Saturday January 4th at the Linc in Philly.

THUNDER 117 ROCKETS 86...ROCKETS looked and played like they have been in them STREETS...4th game in Five Nights for RED Nation as the REGULATORS take them to A Special Place called "THUNDER ALLEY"...REGULATORS Report OKC "RED Nation was looking to raise the White Flag" ...REGULATORS...Mount Up!

Too much @kdTREY5, quality depth, game plan, rest, and playing after a Home-Cooked Meal as the thunder put an KD "Southern Cuisine" 31-Piece Thunder Family Pack on Red Nation and they say," Everything is Bigger in Texas"...well get outta Oklahoma!

Behind a monster night from KD as he goes 33 points, thirteen boards, and five helpers and a career-night from Jeremy "Silence of the Lambs" with 22 points, five boards, and five Oranges...OKC rolled to an impressive 117-86 "W" over the Clutch City Rockets. A 56-44 lead at the break ballooned to a 90-70 lead at the break. The Thunder then cruised into a huge 27-16 4th frame as the OKC Bench played well.

The Rockets get 46 points off their bench and their leading scorer for the night was back up PG Aaron Brooks who led with 17 points while Omri Casspi and Chandler Parsons each added 15 apiece.  Shooting a mere 37% from the field and just 25% from the Arc the Rockets had no shot. Lucky for them the Reserves showed up or they would have beat by a 50-piece.

The Thunder Bench behind Lamb's 22 has been a huge positive for the Thunder as they build that bench back up with youth to make a run at the "Fight for Larry' in June. OKC moves to 25-5 while the Rockets fall to 21-12.

Regulators...Mount Up!

WARRIORS 108 CAVS 104 F OT...CURRY goes Hot and Cold but the DUB City still manages to sink "KYRIE for Mayor" and the CAVS in an Extra Frame...LOGO WATCH w/ DUBS All Day out of the Motel #DUBnation #WARRIORSground

The Golden State Warriors battled and battled as their first stop on a long East Coast Motel Bender had them in C-Town playing the Cavs and Point God "Kyrie for Mayor" Irving as GSW's Point God Steph Curry was more than ready. The Warriors get a 9-5 run in the extra frame to beat the Cavs after a 99-99 tie after the 4th to win 109-105.

Back to GSW's Young Steph messed around and almost got a Triple-Double with 29 points, eleven helpers, and nine rebounds. He hit 25 of those twenty-nine in the 1st half of play. David Lee chipped in with 19 but was relatively quiet on the glass grabbing just four Oranges. Klay-T added 16 as he and Curry combined to hit 8 of 22 with the Money Ball.

The Cavs had plenty of chances but now with no Andrew Bynum (reportedly suspended Conduct Detrimental to the Team as he was help anyway) there is a huge void in the middle. Kyrie led the Cavs with 27 points and nine helpers on 9 of 19 shooting as both Tristan Thompson and CJ Miles had 17 points apiece. Both teams shot the Orange under 45% from the field and it came down to who made the play at the end and it was Young Steph with a late J in OT to seal the "W" for GSW.

Warriors move to 19-13 as they make their way back North in the Pacific and the Cavs fall to 10-20 with Issues all over the place...

PACKERS, CHARGERS, 49ERS, SAINTS, and SEAHAWKS...NFL Week 17 Drama played out and did anyone hit the MEDICINE Cabinet for HEARTBURN among other things? ...#NFLWk17Recap

The Green Bay Packers converted three 4th downs including the Game-Winning 4th Down TD Pass from Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to WR Randall Cobb as the Packers stun the Bears 33-28. The Pack win the NFC Title and they will get the San Francisco 49ers in the Wild Card Round at Lambeau. Bears are eliminated and it was again the "D" that let the Bears down...

The San Diego Chargers thought with the Chiefs playing hardly any starter it would be smooth sailing as their 2013 Season came down to Chiefs PK Ryan Succoup missing a 40-plus yarder to send the Steelers to Winning Time. Bolts QB Phillip Rivers and the Boys get a FG in OT to send the Chargers to the "Jungle on the Ohio" to face Who Dey in the Wild Card next week.

The San Francisco 49ers were playing for the 5th seed or the 6th seed and they needed a Phil Dawson FG as time expired to get the #5 Seed. That seed also gets them a trip to Lambeau Field to face the Packers in the NFC Wild Card.

The New Orleans Saints win and get to travel to the Eagles or Cowboys depending on who wins Sunday Night Football between the both. Saints are a dome Team and would welcome playing the '      Boys in Big D. The win eliminated the Arizona Cardinals from playoff contention.

The Seattle Seahawks took care of Sunday Business and now they will get the a 1st round bye as well as the #1 Seed and will face the lowest seed remaining in two weeks in the Hawks Nets 206.

One of the wildest NFL Week 17's to remember as it came down to seconds for teams to be in...or out!    

RAVENS and DOLPHINS eliminated...STEELERS Hopes Alive and Well...BENGALS and JETS take care of Business as they serve of "SPOILER" Treats...A QB DRIVEN League NFL Week 17 Recap #RAVENnation #PHINSdown #STEELERgang

Both the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens needed to win and they would help themselves. If the Ravens won they would be in and they get trounced in Cincy 34-17. That by chance opened the door for the Miami Dolphin who get beat by the NY Jets 17-7 in a lackluster affair.

Now the scenario was if they both lose the Chargers Door now is wide open and they would control their Playoff Hopes. Bolts playing the Chiefs who are sitting everyone but Chiefs Nation should have a laugher.

On the Back Burner the Pittsburgh Steelers who needed the Ravens, Dolphins, and Chargers to all lose and two of the three have done so. The Steelers now hope the Chiefs bring it and it looks to be a done deal unless the Chargers go in the wrong direction.

Ravens ...Out

Chargers...#6 seed if the win

Steelers....#6 seed if Chargers lose        

PANTHERS 21 FALCONS 20...PANTHERS "D" adds 9 Red Jersey Collections and grabs the NFC South Title and the "FIGHT for GEORGE" #2 Seed beating the FALCONS...A QB DRIVEN League NFL Week 17 Recap #NFCSouthChamps #PanthersPride

The Scenarios are starting to play themselves out as the New Orleans Saints get bad news as the Atlanta Falcons looked to be in place to upset the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers "D" woke up and went after the falcons and QB Matty Ice and sacked him 9 times as Panthers DE and 2014 Pro Bowler Greg Hardy had four of the nine sacks. The Panthers hold onto to tin 21-20 and will get the NFC South Title and the NFC's #2 Seed behind the Seattle Seahawks.

Panthers QB Cam Newton has to be better as he threw for 149 yds on 15 of 27 and two TDs and a INT. The run game was solid behind Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams and they need Agent #89 in WR Steve Smith back ASAP to get that Passing Game restarted. Falcons QB Matt Ryan played well as he threw for 280 yards and two TDs and an INT. His #1 Target WR Roddy White caught 8 Pigs for 91 yards as TE and Future NFL HOF Tony Gonzalez in his last game grabbed four Pigs for 56 yards.

The Panthers as it stands now will have the #2 Seed Overall and get the highest seed remaining in the Divisional Round in the NFC Playoffs.

HEAT 108 BLAZERS 107...No King JAMES the HEAT stay close enough to strike as BOSH goes Game-Winning MONEY BALL...RIP City still showing signs on an Elite NBA Outfit in the WEST...LOGO WATCH CHAMPS 305 > BLAZER Mania on this night #HEATnation #RipCityBLAZERS

The Game was at the Blazers Pace for most of the night until the 4th and final frame and that is kudos to the Champs 305 forcing their style late on Rip City. The game came down to Blazers SF Nicolas Batum hitting two from the stripe as the Heat go up 107-105 to set up the game-winner from Heats PF/C Chris Bosh.

Bosh setting a screen high at the Key for a dribbling left to right Wade County as Wade flips it back and Bosh from Eugene, Oregon sinks it only like Champs do in Winning Time. Bosh ends up with a Monster Night 37 points as he grabbed ten Oranges. Wade County goes 16 points and seven helpers as B-Easy nets 12, Hollywood Cole 11, and Shard Lewis 10 for the Heat. The Heat bench was needed as they responded with a 34-18 advantage as King James sat this one out with a sore groin. The Heat used a 25-19 4th frame to close as they just stayed close enough to make a play to win the game.

The Blazers in that last play guarding Wade County as I would have let the two or fouled him but not let the Money Ball. Chalmers, Sugar Ray, and Cole were out there as Decoys to get to Bosh who is an excellent Money Ball Shooter. Nonetheless the Blazers get 23 points from Matthews and 22 points an seven boards from L-Train. The Blazers had a +9 advantage with the Money Ball a +6 on the glass, and +10 in Attempts from the line playing after a Home-Cooked Meal and still could not cash in. They did let the Heat shoot 50% plus from the field and the Arc and the Heat shot 90% plus from the line and that is staying Ziploc-tight coming out of the Motel.

Heat move to 23-7 while the Blazers fall to 24-6...

BLUES 6 BLACKHAWKS 5 SO F...Fear the INDIAN HEAD Not!...the BLUES hit their Favorite NOTES as they comeback from a 5-3 Deficit to win a Shootout..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison "HAWKS the BLUES are not the Gateway to Lord STANLEY" Episode #ONEGoal #BlackHawksNation #FearTheINDIANHead

The Chicago Blackhawks were cruising at the Madhouse on Madison and then they hit Ice coming out of the Motel in the Lou and take a Shootout Loss. That is cause for concern as they blew a 5-3 lead and the Hawks hardly ever do that giving up two late goals in the 3rd period to tie the game at 5-5.

A game of back and forth as the Hawks score three goals in the 1st behind Sharp, Shaw, and Kane. the Blues sprinkle in a goal to make it 3-1 after one. The Blues then get two goals before the halfway point in the 2nd period to make it 3-3 as the Hawks come right back late with a Brandon Saad Strike to make it 4-3. Heading into the 3rd period the Hawks get a gaol from Brent Seabrook to make it 5-3 as the game looked all but over. The Blues then hit the nets twice within a minute and a half of each other to tie the score as Blues Nation went nuts. Hawks then lose in a shootout and you take your lumps.

Blackhawks Net Minder Antti Raanta stooped 20 of 25 as the Blues Net Minders both got touched up in Brain Elliott (17-19 Winner in Shootout) and Jaroslav Halak (10-13) as he gets pulled after the first period. The Hawks just get caught late and it happens but the blues might have some Kryptonite or something similar as they have played the Hawks better than anyone in the 2013-14 season.

Hawks fall to 27-7-7 and 61 pts tied for the Ice Games best with the Mighty Ducks. The Blues move to 25-7-5 and 55 pts as they try to make their move on the Hawks. Hawks need to get some distance and force the Blues to a High Note elsewhere in Winning Time and not in the Madhouse.

EAGLES @ COWBOYS...Its isn't BIOLERMAKER QB by way of the Great State of Iowa Native KYLE ORTON I am worried about...it's that COWBOYS Charmin-Like "D" vs the BIRDS of Broad Street "O" called LINC-liscious w/a Side of KELLY Green...How in JERRY WIPES and your Favorite Son-In-Law YES MAN did we get here...H.T.T.R. and GENTS don't touch the remote! A QB DRIVEN League FOLES vs ORTON Who?...U of A Tucson vs PURDUE...Ok! #PHIvsDAL #BIRDSofBroadStreet #JerrysGangTX

It doesn't get any better than this as the suspense is in the Arlington, Texas Air as the Philadelphia eagles hit Jerry's World not on a Hopper Pass but for "Date Night" with Jerry's Gang the Cowboys. Cowboys QB Tony Romo is out with Back Surgery as he was a Trooper and now its up to Purdue Boilermaker Alum and QB Kyle Orton. The more interesting thing about Orton replacing Romo is neither play "D" for the Cowboys and now we getting warm.

As for the "Birds of Broad Street" with more Play Makers than the "Greatest Show on Turf" near the Gateway Arch in the Lou and yes Rams Nation I went there. The Eagles QB Nick Foles is playing at a high-level and now he has led that Eagles Offense into a possible NFC East Chip and take that you Chip Kelly Pundits. Can the Cowboys stop that Shady Character, "Nestea Plunge" Fool D-Jack #10, Coop a Loop #14, Avant of Maize & Blue, or even Philly P.I.'s Brent Celek...Lol! They score and they score like its "Friday Night Lights" in Odessa, Texas or Midland, Texas not taking shots. Who wants the NFC East Trophy and a slot in the "Fight for George"?

#BIRDSofBroadStreet EAGLES vs #JerrysGangTX COWBOYS 

The Eagles are loaded with Pro Bowlers in the Skilled Positions and the 2013 NFL's Best "Monsters inside Tackles" Fool in LeSean "Shady" McCoy who is on a Concert Tour called "Slippery when in the A-Gap". He has plenty of Side Kicks in WRs DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper along with Jason "Move the Chains" Avant. Throw in TEs Brent Celek and Baby TE Zach Ertz thew Cowboys need Jimmie Johnson's Mid-90s "D" in this one minus Leon Lett. Cowboys need to go 20-20 then tighten them screws up and force FG's and no TD's.

The Cowboys have Big-Time Weapons and now with Romo out they will go to Boomer Sooner Star DeMarco Murray as he can be a Top-Tier RB. They also have Dez Bryant who when emotions are locked in...is a Beast and "Become Legendary" Mr. Bryant check his Scooby Doos (Jordan Brand)! Orton can make all the throws and he needs to go to #29, #88, and #82 Ole Rocky Top Witten as often as possible and not time for Hero Ball. The Cowboys will be in this one because its in front of the home folks and it will not be a blowout. Will it be a shoot out or a controlled frenzy...we will have to see.

Winner: EAGLES 34-31...yes that close as Cowboys QB Orton thought he was playing the Ohio Bobcats when he was at Purdue for Homecoming! Stay Calm Philly you get the 49ers at the Linc...enjoy the ride back to Philly!


BRONCOS @ RAIDERS...#UNITEDinOrange will work on some things in this one including that "D"...RAIDERS playing or JOBS in 2014 on all levels...A QB DRIVEN LEAGUE w/MANNING Mile High vs PRYOR #DENvsOAK #ORANGEcrush #RAIDERnation

The Broncos will be looking to add to Peyton Manning's TD Totals but they will also be looking to keep him healthy as the AFC Divisional looms large and in charge for Untied in Orange. Working on that Broncos "D" will be relatively important considering they will not have OLB Von Miller as he is dunzo for 2013 with a Torn ACL.

The Raiders on the other hand will be evaluating everything but the Black Hole itself as one of the more prouder Pro Franchises and Fan Bases goes home again early and they need to fix that...the better the raiders...the better the NFL...go get Jon Gruden...again! Let Gruden be in charge of everything but the Raiderettes!

Black Hole

#UnitedInOrange BRONCOS vs #Silver&Black RAIDERS

The Denver Broncos will not have WR "Wes is more" Welker as he takes it easy from those back to back concussions. Manning will be looking to add to that TD total but he also needs to stay healthy. Look for the Broncos also to rest RB Knowshon Moreno as the raiders will get a heavy dose of manning and that Air Attack in the 1st half. The Broncos are only a game up on the Pats for #1 Seed in the AFC and they need to win to keep it unless the Pats lose. No OLB Von Miller the Broncos played the first six weeks without him and they will adjust.

The Raiders need to make wholesale changes but the Players are there they just need a GM/Coach to get things moving accordingly. The QB Slot has been an issue with Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin playing "Truth or Dare" or shall I say "TD or INT". RB Darren McFadden will not play more that 10 games per and they need to get rid of Players who eat up the Cap and the Training Room. This will be real interesting to see what they do as the Broncos need to watch out as they will be playing all out I assume!

Winner: BRONCOS 38-24 Manning four TDs 1st half...sits in the 2nd half  

BILLS @ PATRIOTS...The PATS are playing this one as though the BRONCOS will lose vs the RAIDERS...BILLS trying to finish strong for the NFL Only Mafia...the BILLS MAFIA...A QB DRIVEN League talking TOM Terrific only #BUFvsNE #BILLSMafia #PATSnation

The way they stack up is the Pats are locked into the #2 Slot if they win as the Bengals will be gunning for a "W" just in case the Pats lose the Bengals own the tiebreaker.  The Bills are running on fumes like they have been around this time for quite sometime. QB EJ Manuel will not play as the Bills reportedly will go with Thad Lewis of the Lewis & Bills Mafia Expedition.

#BillsMafia BILLS @ #PatriotsWay PATRIOTS 

This game will be played all out and they are AFC East Rivals so throw out the records as rain is expected heavy so anything goes in this one. The Bills need a heavy dose of RBs Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller as they will not have WR Stevie Johnson. The Pats need 11 in the box to force Thad Lewis to throw the Pig. That Run Game if there is inclement weather which is expected could be a factor.

The Pats need to get that run game (Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, and Legarrette Blount) going but they must block Bills DTs Kyle Williams (10.5 Red Jersey Collections most by Interior Lineman in 2013) and Marcel Dareus. Then behind them it's Rook Backer the "Legend of Kiko" in Kiko Alonso. They have Super Mario Williams quietly putting together a solid season behind 13 Red Jersey Collections. Can the Past Passing Game gets started if they can keep Brady upright? The Pats need to put these guys away quickly and if they don't...trouble lurks! #TrapGame

Winner: PATS 20-9...Pats put it away late in a Nasty One


RAMS @ SEAHAWKS...this will not be a FORMALITY as Jeff Fisher's Ball Club is coming to get a "W" for Team Building 2014...the HAWKS need to get back to "No one wants to come to HAWK NEST 206 and Line Up" Motto...A QB DRIVEN League does it matter who the Rams have its all about 2014 Pro Bowler @dangeRUSSwilson #RAMSnation #SeahawkNation #12thManSpaceNeedle206 #PUGETSoundBullies #LegionOfBoom

The St. Louis Rams are coming for Blood and make no mistake about it rules don't apply when your team is out the playoffs...well they do but they don't...what's to lose. The Hawks though the cards were physical that #7 Ranked Rams Run D upfront is nasty led by Bookends Bloodline Chris Long and Red Jersey Collector Extraordinaire Robert Quinn and his 18 Red Jersey Collections and you didn't know that did you?

The Seahawks have lost a little bit of that Mystique with the Loss to a more than solid Bird Gang and we will see how they bounce back. A 2014 Pro Bowl Backfield in QB Russell Wilson and RB Marshawn Lynch leads the 4th rated Run Game on Sunday. Where the Seahawks will feel the pressure now and in Winning Time is the lack thereof a Passing Game as WR Golden Tate and TE Zach Miller seem to be the only threats.

All the numbers are above and now we talk a little strategy. Can the Rams with Back Up QB Kellen Clemens move the Pig in the Hawks Nest 206 under extreme duress and pressure? If RB Zac Stacy is playing will he be a factor as the soft spot in that Seahawks "D" is that Run "D".

The Seahawks need to sharpen up that Passing game and look for them to incorporate a few wrinkles to WRs/TEs not names Tate or Miller. Can BEAST Mode and Russ take that Seahawk Run Game to the next level on Sunday? Can the Seahawks O-Line keep Wilson out of Quinn and Long among others mitts?

This might be the one of the best games on the day...

Winner: SEAHAWKS 23-18...Rams gave it a fight as Quinn and Long add to Red Jersey Collections...

BUCCANEERS @ SAINTS...The SAINTS win they are in the PLAYOFFS #5 or #6 Seed...they WIN the PANTHERS lose they are NFC SOUTH CHAMPS the #2 Seed...the BUCS playing for JOBS in 2014 among other things...A QB DRIVEN League GLENNON vs BREES in the DOME where No One wins but WHO DAT! #TBvsNO #ItsABUCSLife #GeauxSAINTS

The Scenarios are out there and the Saints have to win or their monumental collapse will be complete. They have not been the same team after going into Seattle a month or so ago as they are not the same team when they are not at the Super Dome. The Bucs are playing for Camp Schiano or are they as Bucs Lead Man Greg Schiano has to have either two feet out the door or Security making plans to take away that Card Key Access. Nonetheless they will be playing "Spoiler" like a few others in NFL Week 17.

#ItsABucsLife BUCCANEERS @ #GeauxSaints SAINTS

Bucs QB Mike Glennon has had a descent rookie season as the Bucs miss RB Doug "the Muscle Hamster" Martin in the worst way. They also have missed WR Mike Williams to go along side WR Vincent Jackson. They just dug themselves to deep a hole to get out of as they have played better but there is no consolation prize for starting 0-9..trust me. Now they can play "Spoiler" to the Saints as Who Dat still has a chance to move to the #2 Slot in Winning Time and a Bye Week and a Home Playoff Game.

The Saints just need to concentrate on winning and let everything else take care of itself. They lose the Panther not only win the NFC South but the Arizona Cardinals if they win move into the Saints #6 Wild Card Slot and Who Dat goes home in a NY Minute. That Bucs "D" is solid and the Saints are going to have to be balanced at that point of attack. RBs Ingram, Sproles, and Thomas need to chew up some blades of grass in the run game. Pro Bowl TE Jimmy Graham will need help from Marquis Colston, Lance Moore, and Rook WR Kenny Stills to name a few. It's go time in the NOLA as they need some Voo Dat to go with that Who Dat....

Winner: SAINTS 30-10 as the Saints go marching into the "Fight for George"      

KENTUCKY Basketball...UK BLUE beats U of L RED as the HARRISON Twins come to the Rescue in the 2nd Half...U of L Star Guard RUSS SMITH relatively quiet...CAMPUS HARDWOOD from LEXINGTON, KY #WeRUK #UofLCards

A 41-36 lead at the break with Kentucky Star PF Julius Randle leading the way with 17 points as he left in the 2nd half and was a non-factor the rest of the way. The Cards had it tied at 58-58 as Cards Star Guard Russ Smith led the way for the Cards with 19 points as the 'Cats pull away 73-66.

The Harrison Twins then took it from their as Andrew dropped 18 points and Aaron 10 points on their way to a combined 28 along with eight boards and three assists. Neither Team shot it from deep well as that was UK's chief concern coming in. The Cards just 6 of 25 from deep while the Cats shot just 3 of 14. U of L's Chris Jones backed up Smith with 18 points as both Teams shot horribly from the Free Throw Line. The Cards shot 14 of 22 while the 'Cats 16 of 30 and if that is not corrected neither will go deep in March Madness.

James Young the talented freshman from Rochester Hills, Michigan and the 'Cats best perimeter player led the 'Cats with 18 points, ten rebounds, and four helpers. Randle 17 all in the 1st half but was not a factor on the glass. 'Cats Soph Holdovers Willie Cauley-Stein (10 rebs) and Alex Proythress (7 pts) important contributions can not be understated as the 'Cats need them both every night out.

The Cards came in #6 as they fall to 11-2 while then 'Cats move to 10-3 as they came in #18...both will be huge factors in Winning Time...

CHIEFS @ BOLTS....CHIEFS are locked into the #5 Seed in the AFC but they need some MO...BOLTS need RAVENS and DOLPHINS to lose and they need to win...A QB DRIVEN League ALEX and PHILLIP with a lot on the Line #KCvsSD #REDfriday #BOLTSup

The Kansas City Chiefs after starting 9-0 have tailed off a bit and have been 2-4 since. They are already a lock for the #5 seed in the AFC but they need to take this game vs the Bolts as a Playoff game to get that edge back. No one has been hotter than the San Diego Chargers and their QB Phillip Rivers. The emergence of RB Ryan Mathews and possible Offensive Rook of the Year in WR Keenan Allen has the bolts right on the cusp of getting a "Fight for Lamar" Invite.  The Bolts need to win and they will know before game time what's needed as both the Ravens and Dolphins Games will be in the books.

#RedFriday CHIEFS @ #BoltsUp CHARGERS

The Chiefs have to play better an they need to somehow find a happy median as both sides of the pig have struggled. The good thing is they have a Top 5 RB in Jamaal Charles. The bad thing is that "D" looks to be a shell of its former Self as there will be no OLB Tamba Hali or Justin Houston in this one. WR Dwayne Bowe is also out as they prepare for the AFC Wild Card.

All of that means a hill of beans to the Chargers who are playing the best of anyone in the AFC but may have dug themselves too big of a hole early. QB Rivers has been money all season long and he has also benefited from RB Ryan Mathews figuring things out. Throw in Usual Suspect TE Antonio Gates and Rook WR Keenan Allen the Bolts are more than formidable. They need two teams to lose and its possible. Can the Chiefs "D" stop Rivers and Company. If they can't can Chiefs QB Alex Smith and the O put up some Points?

Winner: BOLTS 30-16...too much Rivers

#Cheeseheads PACKERS vs #BelieveInMonsters BEARS

Is there anyway possible A-Rog is even near being Sharp and in-tune with his WRs? He has been out seven weeks and I think him playing might play into the Bears Hands...real talk! It is a Rhythm Position and A-Rog unless he has it like that will be off on some Throws he normally makes and the Bears have to make him pay. The Problem is the Bears "D" cannot stop the run and here comes Pack Rook Stud RB Eddie Lacy downhill. The Packers will also have WR Randall Cobb in the Slot or as a Gadget and that doesn't bode well for the Bears "D".

The Packers on the other hand their "D" is a major concern as they have given up 30-Piece Cheese n Brat Packs to nearly every team they have played it seems. Can they stop that Bears Attack led by 2014 Pro Bowl RB Matt Forte by Ground or Air as Matt EX will deliver? What about {Pro Bowl WR Brandon Marshall and should have been Pro Bowl WR Alshon Jeffery as you put TE Martellus Bennett in the mix yo have the "Lake Michigan Monsters". This Bears Offense is entirely different than they one they saw in early November and the Packers "D" can't stop the Pass.

Winner: BEARS 34-31 on a Robbie Gould FG.....and a Shocker...A-Rog off on Targets!


49ERS @ CARDINALS....this game almost had more meaning to it IF the FALCONS won Monday Night...CARDS win they need SAINTS to Lose...49ERS sitting at the #5 Seed NFC Wild Card...A QB DRIVEN League KAP vs CARSON but its bigger than them #SFvsARI #NINERnation #BIRDgang

The San Francisco 49ers almost had to win this game to get into Winning Time if it wasn't for that Navorro Bowman Pick 6 last Monday Night. The Niners now still need to win because if the Saints win they lose the Saints move to #5 seed and Niners fall to #6. The Cardinals just need to win and hope the Saints collapse continues. If the Saints lose the Bird Gang wins...the Bird Gang is in that simple. It looks like there will be a 10-6 or 11-5 NFC Team not making the "Fight for George" Cut.

#NinerNation 49ERS @ #BirdGang CARDINALS

This will be tough sledding for both Teams Offenses to score in this one as both are equally as good vs the run as they are vs the Pass. The Niners must try to establish the Run Game as that is their strong suit with RB Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter. The Cards on the other hand need to establish their Passing Game as that is their strong suit which means Carson needs Protection. These two teams know each other and they do not like one another. Can the Bird Gang keep QB Carson upright? Will that Niners O-Line create enough Gaps for Gore and Hunter?  The Niners know they could knock out two birds with one stone. The Bird Gang knows they just need to win to put themselves in a position to possibly get in. The Saints are playing at home where they never lose...it seems!

The Browns have Offensive Weapons in 2014 Pro Bowl Selections WR Josh Gordon and TE Jordan Cameron. The Steelers are mindful of them and they need to apply as much pressure to QB Jason Campbell as possible. The Browns have a solid "D" but they have struggled playing Big Ben and looking at things as they unfold for Sunday's NFL Week 17 that should not change. The Steelers send WR/PR Antonio Brown to the 2014 Pro Bowl along with SS Troy Polamalu for their excellent 2013 Seasons. The Steelers just need to take care of Business and it might come down to that Chiefs/Chargers Match Up with the Chiefs having nothing to play for sitting in that #5 AFC Wild, Card Slot.

The Jets have to be thinking we need to spoil this for them being the Dolphins as if we don't go they don't either.

They need to run the Pig behind 2014 Pro Bowl Selection Mike Pouncey and take care of both Richardson and Wilkerson and that is easier said than done. The Dolphins also need to get both WRs Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace the Pig and stretch the field a little. As for Geno Smith and the Jets doing anything on Offense it starts with the run game. Can Gang Green run the Pig down the Phins Throat? Can Geno make the necessary throws in the passing game to make plays in the vertical passing game?  Intriguing match up here and they are AFC East Rivals to boot!

The Bengals arguably have the best "D" in the AFC going in and if they can put together  solid back to back to back Offensive Games lookout in the playoffs. Running with that notion this game is just as  important to the Bengals as it is to the Ravens. Then Ravens win they are in...they lose and the Dolphins win the Phins are in.

#PurpleReign RAVENS @ #WhoDey BENGALS

The Baltimore Ravens got a reality check last week as Ordinary Joe looked to be a shell of himself as that Knee Injury is worse than the naked eye can see. RB Ray Rice is no longer of importance to that ravens Offense as they seem to weeding him out for Bernard Pierce. WR Torrey Smith is ailing but will go against an underrated Secondary. That "D" is no where close to what people think it is. I think the Bengals pound them in this one big time. Speaking of Bengals the Run Game is solid, the Passing game has WR AJ Green among others, and Dalton's playing at an All-Time Sunday high..can the ravens stop any of that playing in Cincy? The Ravens have had trouble scoring and can they move the Pig against the AFC's best "D"?

#QueenCityNC PANTHERS vs #AngryBirds404 FALCONS

The Panthers know what's at stake and they will not have #1 WR Steve Smith in this one with a soft hamstring. They need the Run Game with RB DeAngelo Williams and QB Cam north of 100 yards. The Falcons played well enough last week to win @ San Fran in the "Stick" but Bad Teams find  way to lose 24-7-365 and they found a way to lose that one when it looked to be all but the Falcons Game to lose. Top Defenses travel in the NFL Playoffs and the Panthers have one. Can the Falcons move the Pig on the Panthers in this one with WR Roddy White, RB Steven Jackson, and TE Tony Gonzalez in his last NFL Game? Can the Panthers find enough Offense to beat the Falcons as WRs Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn Jr. must step up?

Winner: PANTHERS 23-19 in a close one...Panthers clinch #2 Overall Seed in NFC and NFC South Champs  

POLAMALU and BROWN 2014 Pro Bowlers for STEELERS....TRIPLE DIAMOND Chronicles PRO BOWL Edition...#43 makes it at SAFETY and #84 makes it Double-Barrel Action RECEIVING and PUNT Returning #STEELERnation #STEELERgang

The Pittsburgh Steelers coming in at 7-8 and a season filled with inconsistency and and a lack of play-making ability or even play makers put two in Hawaii. The 2014 Pro Bowl Team was announced on Friday December 27th and the Steelers put Safety Troy Polamalu and WR/PR Antonio Brown in the game after both have had outstanding seasons.

2013 Numbers Troy and Tone 2.0: 

#43 SS 

15 Gms 65 Tackles 2 Red Jersey Collections 5 Forced Fumbles 2 Interceptions

#84 WR

15 Gms 101 Pigs 1,412 Yds 8 TD

#84 PR

15 Gms 29 Returns 388 Return Yds 13.4 Yd Avg TD 7 (+20 Yd Ret) 5 (+40 Yd Ret)

Polamalu has followed what he said in Training Camp as he was the healthiest he has been since 2009. He was all over the field making plays and back to his old self. He has also made a number of game-changing plays that have keyed a few Steelers Victories. The Steelers now have to answer the question with Cap Issues will they pay Troy what is left or ask him to restructure?

Brown was money well spent as current Aqua Boyz 305 and Ex-Steeler WR Mike "Da Kid" Wallace said no to $42 Million the Steelers slid that cash right over to WR/PR Antonio "Tone 2.0" Brown and he has more than delivered. A Do-It-All WR that can run anything on the Route Tree and is virtually impossible to cover Man to Man. Where Mike Wallace's Speed gave you a concern it's Brown's YAC that scares Defenses as he is a Top 3 in the NFL in the Open Field along with Shady McCoy and DeSean Jackson of the Eagles. Tone also returns as a Punt Returner where he made the Pro Bowl his Rookie Season. He is electric in the Open Field and a former 6th Round Pick...Imagine That!

This will be Troy's 8th Appearance and Brown's 2nd in the Pro Bowl....

Brady has another magnificent season and it didn't start at well but the 'Best Ever" at QB in the NFL figures it out quickly no matter who is on the other end catching the Pig. WRs like Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman, and Rooks like Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson and Brady still remains a Top Threat at QB...enough said.

Brees needed TE Jimmy Graham and Graham delivered as his #1 Target for Years WR Marquis Colston struggled with injuries. Gadget RB Darren Sproles helped the Passing Game as well as Rookie Keeny Still from Oklahoma. Steady Eddy Brees is and having Sean Payton back calling Plays was a lock for Brees to end up as another Pro Bowl Year.

What can I say Manning started with a bang and will end the regular season with a bang. All those Weapons and a new found Run Game behind Broncos former #1 Pick Knowshon Moreno made that Broncos Passing Attack more formidable. 2014 Broncos Pro Bowlers in TE Julias Thomas and WR Demaryius Thomas is a small portion of that Broncos Offensive Attack. Manning the 1st ever to go 50 TDs and 5K plays Yards in a season...Bang!

Cam hasn't come close to his Rookie Campaign but his 3rd season maybe his best body of work yet. No Longer running after his 1st read he is staying in the pocket longer letting his progressions work themselves out. That is a mark of a seasoned Sunday Signal-Caller. WR Steve Smith is still a big-time WR but the emergence of Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn Jr. along with a solid Run Game behind DeAngelo Williams aided Cam in his development inn 2013.

Russell Wilson has been consistent and the ability to make plays with his Arm and his Legs as well as seeing the play through are his strengths. Having Pro-Bowl RB Marshawn Lynch behind him doesn't hurt but just think if he still had WR Sidney Rice and PR/KR/WR Percy Harvin...these numbers would be even higher.

Rivers has benefited greatly from New Chargers Lead Man Mike McCoy. McCoy has been a god send and Rivers is back to his dominant self in 2013. A year where he lost his two Top WRs as he has depended on TE Antonio Gates and Rookie WR Keenan Allen. Also a better than ever former Bolts 1st round RB Ryan Mathews....butta!

PELICANS 105 NUGGETS 89...State BIRD of LOUISIANA behind ANT Davis and REKEhavoc smother the Mile high NUGS in the Big PELICANS Nest...LOGO WATCH as NOLA is bigger and better with Big ANT #PELICANnation #NOLAhoops

The New Orleans Pelicans started off on the right foot and got out to a 58-45 lead at the break and never looked back on the Nugs. A combination of soon to be All-Star Ant Davis and Combo G Tyreke Evans the Pelicans pulled away early and the Nugs didn't have enough firepower on the bench to overcome the Pelicans surge.  

The Pelicans get six players in double figures including a nice floor game from REKEhavoc of 19 points, ten helpers, and seven assists. The Pelicans Front Line combined to go Biggie-Size through Anderson, Davis, and Aminu with 44 points, twenty-five boards, and six helpers. It was the Bench behind REKEhavoc's 19 and a 36-17 advantage NOLA that put the Nugs as a huge disadvantage.

The Nugs get 22 points and nine boards from Wilson Chandler and 16 points and ten boards from JJ Hickson as they Nugs Bench gave them nothing. A +15 from the ARC kept the Pelicans lead from getting to 30 plus for the Nugs. Too much time wasted trying to get back in it as well as energy cost the Nugs.

The Pelicans move to 13-14 while the Nugs fall to 14-14 after a 58-24 campaign in 2013-14.     

KINGS 108 HEAT 103 F OT...Behind FOREVER Purple's @BoogieCousins and "RUDY the MONARCH" the KINGS beat the short-handed CHAMPS 305 as KING JAMES fills the Stat Sheet....LOGO WATCH as SLEEP Train Arena aka ARCO has COW BELLS again #ForeverPURPLE #HEATnation

The Miami Heat had three key players out in their rotation and that is rolling the dice no matter who your playing coming out of the Motel in the Logo. The Sacramento Kings meanwhile ride their "Big Dawgs" in Big Demacrus Cousins and newly-acquired Rudy Gay to get a 108-103 shocker in an Extra Frame over the Champs 305.

The Kings get huge games from Cousins (27 pts 15 rebs 5 asst), Rudy (26 pts), and PG Isaiah Thomas who went for 22 points, eleven helpers, and seven boards. The Kings shot nearly 50% from the field and almost 85% from the line and that helped them overcome a horrible night from the Arc (5-20).

The Heat had plenty of chances but no Wade County or Sugar Ray hurt them offensively in the end. King James goes game-high 33 points, eight boards, and eight helpers. Bosh helped out with 18 points and seven boards while Heat PGs Regular Mario and Hollywood Cole combined to offset the King's Thomas' Numbers going 24 points an eleven assists. A +18 advantage from the Arc helped the Heat stay in it and send into Extras. A -16 rebounding effort kept the Kings in it as the Heat allowed ten offensive rebounds.

The Kings move to 9-19 as the Heat fall to 22-7...    

THUNDER 89 mikeCATS 85...No Uncle RUSS but we have @kdTREY5 and glad he is on our SIDE...THBUNDER get by the new bobCATS...the mikeCATS...moving to HORNETS in 2014-15...REGULATORS Report OKC with a hard fought "W" in the QUEEN CIty NC...REGULATORS...Mount Up!

The bad news is All-STar PG Russell Westbrook will be out until after the 103-14 All-Star Break. The great news is 3rd-year OKC PG Reggie Jackson is not Russ but more than just solid as he has came into his own and the Thunder still have the Logo's #1 Scorer in KD.

It was a back and forth affair as the Thunder go into Charlotte and get a 89-85 victory. The OKC Offense definitely slows down when Russ is not running the show and teams know this. @kdTREY5 still goes for a game-high 34 points on 14 of 28 and the nerve of KD to grab a Dozen Oranges and wait six OKC Tables. Serge Ibaka and Thabo Sefolosha each added 12 points while "Mr. December" Reggie Jackson nets 10 points on just 4 of 19 shooting. Both teams shot poorly as the Thunder's Advantage was KD.

The mikeCATS were led by PG Kemba Walker's 18 points and seven helpers and Big Al Jefferson's 16 points and eleven boards. The Cats were right there as they finally have a Core to build around in Walker and Big AL. The loss of versatile SF Jeff Taylor to a Ruptured Achilles Tendon hurts as the 2nd-Year Vandy Player was coming into his own and a real steal in that 2012 NBA Draft.

The Thunder move to 24-5 as its will be a another time for other OKC Players to step up notably Jackson and Jeremy Lamb. The 'Cats move to 14-16 but as we go to press that is good enough for #5 in the East.

Regulators...Mount Up!

RAPTORS 95 KNICKS 83...DINOSAURS go into Manhattan looking for Matthew Broderick and find the KNICKS and swallow them WHOLE...KNICKS TAPE feeling like the "GENTS" right now...KNICKS Tape #1 Soap "GOTHAM Light" goes "Night Out with the DINOSAURS and lose" #RAPTORnation #KNICKSnation

The Knicks were in a good position to win #10 on the season and instead put up a Dinosaur Egg in the 4th and final frame to the Raptors. Toronto goes on a 29-12 run in the 4th behind the play of the point (Kyle Lowry) and the Big (Lithuanian Jonas Valanciunas) and give the Knicks a 95-83 defeat.

All this comes after a reported through numerous media outlets "Mr. Bigs" Knicks Owner James Dolan calls a "Player's Only Meeting" Thursday and tells the players no changes in the Coaching Staff so figure it out. Meanwhile the Knicks at this point are what they are a 9-20 Outfit struggling in all facets of NBA Basketball.

Raptors Shooting Guard DeMar Derozan continues his excellent 2013-14 getting a game-high 25 points. PG Kyle Lowry goes 15 points and eleven helpers and Big Jonas Valanciunas nets 16 points and eighteen boards as the Raptors start heading North in the Atlantic. The Knicks get 18 points and twelve boards from Andres Bargnani, 17 points from "Get Shots" J.R., and 15 points and ten helpers from PG Beno Udrih as the Knicks shot over 50% with the Money Ball and that kept them in the game through three frames.

The Raptors move to 12-15 in the Atlantic while the Knicks some 20-7 at this juncture in the season last year fall to 9-20 as Matthew Broderick was nowhere to be found but on Broadway!      

BLACKHAWKS 7 AVS 2...HAWKS Favorite Permanent Marker "SHARPIE #10" goes HAT TRICK and blows out the B-DAY Candles..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison "Team INDIAN Head gives COLORADO the Business and an AVALANCHE #OneGoal #FearTheINDIANHead #BlackHawkNation

It's not like the Hawks needed to find a Power Surge underneath the Christmas Tree but they get one two days after as the Hawks were all over the Colorado Avalanche 7-2 at the Madhouse. Hawk Winger Patrick "Sharpie #10" Sharp blows out the Candles on the Birthday Cake an the Avs going Hat Trick".

The Hawks scored the first five goals in the contest including three in the first behind two from Sharp. The Captain #19 got in on the act as he scored twice as he and Sharp accounted for thew Hawks first five goals. They scored two more in the 2nd with the Avs adding one goal as that Avalanche chased Avs Net Minder Jean-Sebastien Giguere . Giguere seven to go passed him on just 24 shots as the Hawks immense pressure on him and the Avs poor "D" contributed to the massive Avalanche. The Hawks also get goals from Michal Handzus and Kris Versteeg.

Hawks Net Minder Antti Raanta had plenty of Offensive support as he saved 16 of 18 on Net and moves to an impressive 9-1-2 in 2013-14. The Hawks also moved an Ice Games leading 60 points just one point over the Might Ducks of Orange County California. Team "Happy Feet" the Pens of the 'Burgh lead the east with 57 points but we all know the President's Trophy is mere Appetizer to the Mega-Entree called Lord Stanley....Hawks Win! Hawks Win! Hawks Win!  

"MONSTERS taking care of VETS" My Pick of 2013 OFFENSIVE Rook of the Year grabbing No DONUTS, washing no WHIPS, and paying No TABS...BOLTS 2013 3rd Rounder KEENAN ALLEN...and that's a Baaaaaaaaaad Man...Top 5 OFFENSIVE Rooks of 2013 #GotGame

Yes it is a no-brainer even though I would catch some flack from the Cheese Heads over Cheese, Brats, Tailgating, and that Monster coming through A-Gap Fool in Eddie "Brick of Cheese" Lacy of Roll Tide Lore. He was a 2nd rounder and my 2013 Pick for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year by way Cal Berkeley Golden Bears is "Baby Monster on the Outside" Keenan Allen of the Bolts. Allen came out of nowhere but I had him etched on my Draft Board as a #1 Pick at WR regardless of that 4.7 Pro Day 40-yard dash...turn the tape on fools that "Eye in the Sky" never lies. There were a few other worthy including a RB that is starting to get his feet under him in the 'Burgh.

Top 5 Offensive Rookies in order:

1. KEENAN ALLEN WR #BoltsUP (3rd Rd 76th Pick Overall): 66 Pigs 957 Yds 8 TD (pictured right)

Are you kidding me after he didn't play a snap in the 1st game of 2013 Chargers Rook WR Keenan Allen has been a god send for QB Phillip Rivers and that Bolts Offense. Due to injuries his play was extended and he responded to grab 66 Pigs on 957 Yards and eight in your end zone. Not a burner but at 6'2" and north of 210 el bees nice size and elusiveness and excellent route runner enhances his catch-ability in bump and run. A 3rd round steal for the Bolts as he should top 1K yards for 2013 as he has the Chiefs and that tough Secondary to face in NFL Week 17.

2. EDDIE LACY RB #CheeseHeads (2nd Rd 61st Pick Overall) 263 Att 1,112 Yds 10 TD

Yes he looks like ex-Steeler RB Jerome "The Bus" Bettis and the Packers knew exactly what they were getting in this burly of a RB from 'Bama. Lacy has been better than advertised as most Teams were scared off of that Toe Surgery right before his Junior Year (Turf Toe scare) as he has torched Run Defenses on Sunday, Monday, and Thursday. He would be my Pick for 2013 Offensive Rookie of the Year but he was penciled into start for the Pack from Day One. I wouldn't be surprised though if still did receive the award.

3. GIOVANI BERNARD RB #WhoDey (2nd Rd 37th Pick Overall)  157 Att 673 Yds 5 TD 51 Pigs 463 Yds 3 TD

Tabbed as a Versatile Back in the Run/Pass game Bernard has lived up to his billing as he is Darren Sproles 2K13 for the Bengals in 2013. The Perfect Compliment to AJ Green, Benjarvus Green-Ellis, and those Bengal TEs in Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert. His Numbers and his Targets as well as touched should only be enhanced even more as he will eventually be an Every down back and have an impact on games like Jamaal Charles of the Chiefs...real talk!  

4. Le'VEON BELL RB #BlackAndYellow (2nd Rd 48th Pick Overall) 224 Att 770 Yds 7 TD 44 Pigs 393 Yds

He has flourished here in the last few weeks as the Steelers arguably picked up the # RB in the 2013 NFL Draft. Yes Lacy has had a Monster Rook Campaign but he isn't as polished Bell or even Bernard. A very patient runner at the point of attack running like he has been playing for pay for years along with excellent vision and burst and physical. Bell remember missed the fist four game of 2013 with a sprained foot but also that Steelers O-Line has been playing better as the time went on.    

5. ZAC STACY RB #STLRams (5th Rd 160th Pick Overall) 235 Att 958 Yds 7 TD

Yes Jeff Fishers got him one in the former Vandy Star and Alabama Native RB Zac Stacy. At just 5'8" but a Pocket-Hercules Build of 220 plus el bees Stacy has been a "Baby Monster in the A-Gap" for the Rams. The Rams now can concentrate on getting them a #1 WR in the Draft as 2013 1st Rounder Tavon Austin and TE Jared Cook are already etched in Stone in that Rams Offense along with Stacy for 2014.

BLAZERS 116 CLIPPERS 112...CP3 misses a Potential Game-Winner...then it was the BLAKE Show vs the L-TRAIN on your BLOCK...RIP City pulls out another close one...LOGO WATCH with something brewing in the ROSE CITY #BLAZERmania #RipCityBLAZERS

The Clippers and Blazers mirror each other and you have not seen the last of these two teams playing head to head. After a sluggish 1st frame both teams settles in to give an action-packed 5-Star Contest filled with everything from Money Ball Daggers to "Splash Plays" to taking the Elevator up and the whole nine. After the smoke cleared it as the home team that was victorious.

The Portland Trailblazers dodged a few bad Oranges in this one to pull out a 116-112 OT Victory over the LA Clippers who were coming off of a tough Christmas Night and the Day after Christmas Games out of the Motel. Behind a magnificent performance from All-Star LaMarcus "L-Train" Aldridge, who was almost a no-go with the flu-like symptoms, led with 32 points and ten boards. But it was his one on one battle with the Clips Blake Griffin who went for 35 points and eleven boards that was made for NBA on TNT Thursday Night.

The Blazers also get 19 points from both Wes Matthews and Nicolas Batum as they put six players in double figures. The Clips Point God CP3 chipped in with 34 points and sixteen helpers as the Clips just four players in double figures.  Thew Game was won at the Arc where the Blazers held a +15 advantage.

The Clips fall to 20-11 as they hit a tough part of the schedule. The Blazers move to 24-5 and there record is no fluke as they get it...

SPURS 116 MAVS 107...DUNC and TP9 show up but it was DG of AT&T shooting the Dagger MONEY BALS that was the difference...MAVS take an "L" from #SPURScommunity in Big D...LOGO WATCH as TEAM S.A.S. bounces back like a SPALDING Orange #SPURSnation

The San Antonio Spurs come right back after a tough home loss on Christmas Night to the In-State Red Nation Rockets to come right back strong to beat a game Mavs Bunch 116-107. The Spurs had balance and just all hands on deck and that is why they are so tough to defend and coach against because you never know outside of Parker, Duncan, and Ginoboli who is going to have a big night.

Well tonight for Spurs Community it was former UNC Tar Heel Danny "D.G. of AT&T" who grabbed the Spurs Spotlight vs Team Shark Tank the Dallas Mavericks. Green had 22 points off the bench and 5 for 5 with the Dagger Money Balls. Spurs PG TP9 of Peak USA Scooby Doos led S.A.S. with 23 points and Dunc added 21 and 13 and next time I will just say another double-double.    The Spurs shot nearly 50% from the field and above 80% from the line.

The Mavs couldn't get over the hump just trailing 58-51 at the break. They just couldn't grab a lead and run away with it as Dirk led the Mavs with 25 points, Ex-Spurs Big Dejuan Blair dropped 14 and 11 vs his old mates as he had plenty of motivation. Monta Ellis added 23 points and six assists and Vince Carter 20 in the loss.

The Spurs move to 23-7 as the Mavs fall to 16-13 as they have been struggling the last few outings...

ROCKETS 100 GRIZZLIES 92...#REDnation breaks out in the 4th and Final Frame to claim VICTORY over Team GRIT & GRIND Beale Street...HARDEN shoots 25 FTs and nets 27 pts #SMH...RED Nation's #1 Soap "AS DWIGHT Turns" CHARITY Stripe-Gate Episode #CLUTCHcity #ROCKETSgang

The Houston Rockets had to dig back and grab their Valentine in this one coming off of an exciting "W" in the Alamo City last night. The Rockets use a 34-20 4th Frame to propel them to a 100-92 "W" over thew Memphis Grizzlies as the Grizz had a horrible night shooting but that has been their Theme in the 2013-14 season.

Rockets All-Star SG James Harden has an obscure night getting 27 points on just 2 of 9 from the field but 22 of 25 from the Charity Stripe. That's right Harden feasted at the Line to the utterly dismayed Grizzlies Team that wasn't getting called on some phantom calls if I have ever seen any. "Dwight of Three Stripes" after handing out Rolex Watches to teammates on Christmas day only had 2 points and five boards as he stayed in Penalty Box. Both Rocket Forwards T-Jones (20 pts) and Chandler Parsons (15 pts 11 rebs 5 asst) piked up the slack with LIN-sanity of the Toyota Center adding 18. Just think if the Knicks had Jeremy Lin and yes I went there!  

The Grizz a monster night from "Monsters on the Glass" Regular @MacBO50 Grizz PF Zach Randolph as he went 23 points and seventeen boards. Conley Jr. (11 pts 6 asst) and newly-acquired SF and Ex-Bulls 1st Rounder James Johnson (12 pts) joined Z-Bo as the only other Grizz Players in double figures. I know what it is and the Grizz Players know what it is but the Grizz decided to move forward and they are not the same bunch.

The Rockets won the game as they lived at the line shooting 40 FTs and making 33. The Grizz shot only 20 and kissed nine of them...Ball Game! Rockets move to an impressive 20-11 and the Grizz fall to a disappointing 12-16.    

HAWKS 127 CAVS 125 F 2OT...Two of the Best Young POINT GODS in the LOGO squared off near the "JAKE" and the DAWG Pound as HAWKS TEAGUE gets the "W" over CAVS "KYRIE for MAYOR"...LOGO WATCH w/Highlight Factory 404 "Moving the Crowd" in the East #ATLHawksNation

They could have played this anywhere in C-Town on Thursday Night and Hawks PG Jeff Teague and Cavs PG Kyrie Irving would have filled that Stat Sheet up like Pretty Boy Floyd and the Money Team filled up Canelo Alvarez with Pot Shots.

Behind Monster games by both the Hawks pull one out coming out of the Motel a day after Rudolph and Santa dropped all kinds of Packages on C-Town. Teague sent it to the 2nd OT with a Money Ball with seconds left. Kyrie you have to wonder for a PG who has the Orange so much does he have Tunnel Vision and think its Me Ball instead of We Ball...33 shots Kyrie for Mayor" took...wow! Teague ended up with 34 points and waited on fourteen Hawks Tables. Kyrie went 40 piece and waited on nine Cavs Tables as he shot nine more times than Teague with just three more FGs made.

Joining Teague for ATL was All-STar PF/C Big Al Horford with 25 points and eight boards. Another underrated Big-Time Talent is Hawks PF/SF Paul Milsap as he added 20 points and elven boards. Former Creighton Blue Jay Monster Kyle Korver hit 20 and had four Money Balls to show for it. The Hawks Horford left in the 1st OT with a Shoulder Injury.

Kyrie had help with Cavs 2G Dion Waiters adding 20 points and PF Tristan Thompson chipping in with 22 points. CJ Miles had ten points but those were the only four players for the Cavs in double figures.

The Hawks move to 16-13 adn that is good for 3rd in the East and one of three teams over the .500 mark in the East. The Cavs fall to 10-18 as how do you get fired and re-hired and fired again as Cavs New Lead Man Mike Brown that's like getting fired on your day off! IT'S THURSDAY....

Bluedude Sportstalk SPORTS SHORTS Take 145 the "Set Me FREE Series"...Free PACKERS QB A-ROG just in time to See the "IMPOSTERS of the MIDWAY"...and Free JAPAN's 25-year old RHP Masahiro TANAKA to MLB #PACKERSbiz #MLBbiz

They knew it was coming, I knew it was coming, and for Bears Fans you knew the new would be bad. The Green Bay Packers and Trapper John M.D. among other Doctors have cleared Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to play in Sunday's "Win or go Home" NFC North Showdown between the Packers and Bears. Yes the QB the Bears knocked out foe several weeks the Football Gods has unleashed back onto the Bears. He shouldn't sharp be but A-Rog owns the Bears in his Packers Tenure. Sunday Afternoon at Soldier Field just got a lot more interesting!

The Rakuten Eagles 25-year old RHP Masahiro Takana was a No-Go as his Team wouldn't allow him to fulfill his MLB Dream last week. Well the Eagles have changed their tune and here he comes and through many MLB Analysts and Observers he is a True #1 like Japanese Hurlers Darvish and Matsuzaka weren't. Having a shot at Tanaka will set you back $20  million just to get the coveted Import over the Ocean. Then to sign him it will reportedly set you back at least north of $100 Million as the Japanese Star Right-Hander is High-Voltage. Look for Teams like the Dodgers, Yankees, Rangers, and Mariners among others. His 2013 season wasn't that bad as Tanaka went 24-0 with a poultry 1.27 ERA...Yikes! Imagine the Endorsements that would follow that young man as a big market would only enhance that like the big market teams.

"MONSTERS Inside the POCKET" 2013 NFL QB Leaders in YARDS going ENTREE and TDs going A La CARTE...I know what your thinking MANNING MIle High but what about TOM Terrific among others #NFLQBLeaders2K13

Yes Manning Mile High has had a full assault once again on the NFL Records Books from the Pocket as its a combinations of Manning's Mind, Work Ethic, and Weaponry around him which is a lethal combo. Then throw in there has not much he hasn't seen on the football field from one-man fronts to 15-man fronts...Lol as he has been the NFL's ATM for awhile. Throw in Tom Terrific of Foxboro who could make an NFL Red Zone or NFL Ticket Head jump right off the couch suit up and catch the Pigs from Tom and go Pro Bowl as fast as Instant Quaker Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal. He is the best the Bluedude has ever seen and it isn't even close as Randy Moss is the only Target besides maybe "Gronk" that Brady has thrown to and he was Five-Star. The Usual Suspects are also in the mix...Brees, Staff, Big Ben, Rivers, Romo, and Palmer with Dalton joining the fray.

Manning the first NFL QB to have 5,000 yards in a season and 50 TDs...enough said!

Brees is just consistent as he has had to find New Targets and hasn't skipped a beat...

Stafford is a Fantasy Darling but he gets to December and turns into a Bottom Feeder...real talk!

Rivers has been reborn under New Lead Man Mike McCoy and that 2013 3rd Round Pick WR Keenan Allen is all that like he was on my Draft Board with a 1st Round Gray.

Matty Ice lost Julio for 2013 early and Roddy for most of 2013 of the "Peach Drop 3" and still is putting up numbers with WR Harry Douglas being the #1....TE Gonzo still going!

Tom Terrific Brady is still the King and after it's all said and done he will be the best ever no question asks...

Big Ben and Steelers Nation talks about O-Coordinator Haley but I still think at the end of Season 2 its starting to round into form...and they have a slim chance to get to Winning Time.

The "Strawberry Rifle" Dalton on the Ohio just needs to be more consistent as the Bengals will roll with him and pay Dalton....he is solid though!

Carson Palmer under "Air Arians" has flourished as they have a shot at going 11-5 and not get into the "Fight for George" and that my NFL Heads would be disappointing especially with their "D"

Romo is hard to figure out as he always has Numbers but he definitely falls under the Category of don't tell me how many yards and TDs you threw for...when did you throw them!

Note: Numbers from ESPN.Go.com/NFL

WARRIORS 105 CLIPPERS 103...Both Teams wanted to be SANTA and his ELVES but they both played the "GRINCH that STOLE on each other" as RUN T.L.C. beats the CLIPS on WARRIORS Ground in a testy one as someone didn't get their Christmas List filled accordingly...LOGO Watch as the PACIFIC Division goes thru both CLIPS n GSW #DUBCity #LOBcity

The Golden State Warriors and L.A. Clippers went at it again and just judging the first two games the Seven Game Series in mid to late May should be a dandy. The Warriors behind a total team effort outlast the Clips 105-103 as it went all the way down to the buzzer!

With the the Blake Show and Draymond Green both ejected the Warriors hold on as they get 23 points and thirteen boards from David Lee and 23 points from Klay Thomspon to lead as Young Steph goes 15 points, eleven boards, and six helpers. The Warriors had a +18 advantage from the Arc but the Clips shoot a higher percentage.

CP3 led the Clips with 26 points and eleven assists while the Lob City Front Line of Blake (20 pts 14 rebs 5 asst) and DeAndre (13 pts 13 asst) do major work in the paint. Jamal 206 added another strong game riding shotgun alongside CP3 with 19 points but on 9 of 21 shooting. The Clips didn't make the Play that could have gave them the "W" and that's what it came down to.

The Warriors trying to get back into the Pacific Division Race led but the Clips moves to 17-13. The Clips fall to 20-10 as these two teams have struck up a nice little rivalry.

ROCKETS 111 SPURS 98...CHRISTMAS Night in the ALAMO City was all about "PACE" as SANTA delivers the the "Big HORSE" and "FEAR the Beard" #13 for Coach McHALE and RED Nation gets a Huge "W"...RED Nation's #1 Soap "As DWIGHT Turns" CLUTCH City Clutch vs S.A.S. #ROCKETSgang #ClutchCityROCKETS

For Rockets Lead Man Kevin McHale he gets what he wanted for Christmas as the Rockets control the all important "Pace" from start to finish in the Alamo City and beat the Spurs running wire to wire 111-98.

McHale gets a his Big Horse in "Dwight of Three Stripes" (15 pts 20 rebs) and Closer Extraordinaire @JHarden13 (28 pts 6 rebs 6 asst) show up and handle the Spurs and what ever the Spurs threw at them. It was also the Rockets Supporting Cast led by Ex-#WeRUK Cats of Lexington's Terrence Jones going 21 points and fourteen boards and Ex-Gator Chandler Parsons 21 points six rebounds, and six helpers supplied plenty of reinforcements to the Starts in a Leading Role. Harden had 10 straight at one key stretch late in the 4th to seal the deal.

The Spurs nipped at the Rockets lead and got the lead down to two on a few occasions in the 4th but couldn't get over the hump as the Rockets controlled the "Pace". The Spurs simply got caught up in the Rockets Game in Transition and when the Spurs don't do what they do like most teams...they get in trouble. Marco Belinelli led the Spurs Charge with 22 points and just think he led the Bulls Charge a lot last season as well "K.L. of the Riverwalk" added 13 points and seven boards. Tim Duncan chipped in with 11 points and fourteen boards with five helpers as those two and Marco were the only three Spurs in Double figures. Spurs Point God TP9 had just 6 points and four boards in just over 30 minutes as he had the "Christmas Bug"!

Rockets move to 19-11 and the Spurs fall to 22-7...Clutch City trying to make a move in the West to get into that all important Top 4.          

HEAT 101 LAKERS 95...WADE County and BOSH join forces on LAKER Gang for a Christmas Fusion called "A WHITE HOT playing in RED HOT Christmas starring in a Leading Role without Mr. SAMSUNG Himself"...where was LeBRON! (Lil Dez Voice)...LAKERS Effort was there just not enough HORSES...LOGO WATCH with "Christmas SCOOBY DOOS all over the Hardwood" Episode #HEATnation #LAKERnation

The Lake Show shows up but not enough Five-Stars going to battle as it was too much Bosh, Wade, and LeBron playing "It's Christmas Day take it easy Boys in the City of Angels". The Heat play "Nip and Tuck" L.A. but in the end it was the Champs 305 pulling away at the very end 101-95.

It wasn't King James like expected on almost every night as Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh stepped up to deliver big for White Hot. Wade County goes for 23 points and filling his Stocking with six Oranges off the glass, waiting seven Heat Tables, and a "Splash Play" to King James just in case you left Staples talking they didn't do anything spectacular...hit the 405 Laker Fan and keep it moving and you better not...and I wish you would! Bosh also netted 23 points as he was one Orange short of a dozen. James coasted with a play here...and a play there and finished with 19 points as he grabbed eight Oranges.

The Game was "Nip and Tuck" Miami at the break with a 51-46 score Heat. The Lakers made a run in the 3rd frame with a 28-25 quarter as Nick at Nite 2.0 the Laker Gang's most consistent scorer hitting 11 in that 3rd frame. In the end it was too much savvy Vet Plays to go along with some of the best Talent the Logo has to offer as well as the #1 Player in the Galaxy in King James. Nick Young led the Lakers with 20 as Reverend Meeks added 17 and Gasol 13 and 13 with the X-Man totaling 14 off the bench. The Lakers Bench again stepped forward with a 47-26 advantage but the Starters didn't hold their end up like on most night as Lakers Lead Man MDA tries to find that balance. The Lakers +15 Money Ball Advantage kept it close as both Teams shot poorly from the Free throw Line.

The Heat move to 22-6 while the Lakers fall to 13-16...      

THUNDER 123 KNICKS 94...Here comes REGGIE J...Here comes REGGIE J right down KNICKS Tape Way...#KNICKSInOrange get hit by not KD or RUSS but "Mr. DECEMBER" of Chestnut Hill Mass REGGIE JACKSON...REGULATORS report OKC "Mrs. CLAUS disappointed in the KNICKS Effort" Episode..REGULATORS...Mount Up!

The New York Knicks knew it would be tough sledding even with the "Bully" in the Christmas Day Lunch Line. They also knew they had to somehow slow down the OKC's Top Regulators in @kdTREY5 and @RussWest44. What they didn't know there is a Young Gun names "Reggie the Kid" and pretty soon he will be on that NBA's Most Wanted Picture. "Mr. December" Reggie Jackson strikes World's Most Famous...Read all about it!

OK Russ messed around a got a Triple-Double of 14 points, thirteen boards, and ten helpers and that is putting in work even though he put that up in Part-Time Duties. KD goes for a game-high 29 points, seven boards, and six helpers in a rather quiet 10 for 16 night. The show though belonged to 3rd-Year PG Reggie Jackson of the Boston College Golden Eagles Hoops Lore as he went Postal in the 2nd half.

Jack put up 18 points with three Money Balls as he even had a "Get Right" Hammer over the Artist formerly known as S.T.A.T. now Government Name Amare Carsares Stoudamire. That OKC 2nd Unit has another burner in UConn's Ichabod Crane-Looking Jeremy "Silence of the Lambs" as he is NBA HOF Jamaal Silk Wilkes Silky-Smooth as Lamb had 13 w/ two Money Balls.

The Knicks are not going to get any better and remember Tyson Chandler is back playing and they still look awful. Stoudamire led the Knicks with 22 points, Rookie Bloodline Shooting-Guard Tim Hardaway Jr. added 21, and "Gets Shots" Earl "J.R." Smith chips in with 20. Forget the "Titanic" the Knicks are headed to the Bermuda Triangle" if they don't fix things. What if 'Melo Anthony decides to bolt...just sayin'!

OKC moves to 23-5 and the Knicks fall to a James Dolan poppin' Maalox 9-19...Gang Green, Met Life Blue, the Blue Shirts, the Bronx Bombers, and the Amazin's...c'mon NYC show the Bluedude some Grit and Grind!

Regulators...Mount Up!        

BULLS 95 NETS 78..."BK NETS roasting...on an OPEN FIRE...BULLS heading back to the...MAGNIFICIENT MIle"...OK OK...BROOKLYN gets caught up running with the BULLS of CHI-City...WEST SIDE Story Report Christmas at the BARCLAYS Recap...#BULLSnation Big!

The Chicago Bulls take it right to #BrooklynHasAHomeTeam as the Nets 3rd Frame struggles continue. The Bulls leading just 41-38 at the break go on a 36-20 3rd frame binge and at what point a 21-4 run to close out the 3rd to put the Nets back into the Fireplace for 95-38 win.

The Bulls Power Surge was led by versatile PF and Brooklyn NY Native the TAJ-manian Devil Gibson as he led See Red with 20 points and eight rebounds including a couple of rim-rattling hammers. He led six Bulls into double-figures as the See Red Butler added 15 points and five boards with Booz 14 and Augustin and Dunleavy chipping in with 13. The Bulls just looked younger, faster, and hungrier as the Nets lethargic 3rd quarter woes continue.

Deron Williams led the Nets with 18 but the lackluster effort from everyone else wearing black was non-existent. The Nets played at least Today like they accept losing and I don't care what anyone says on that note and echo the same sentiments as J-Kidd..."Grab your Valentine...and start putting up 110% or you will be sitting next to me".

Bulls shoot almost 50% and 90% from the Line as the Nets after sleeping in their beds and a home-cooked breakfast shoot under 36% from the field and the Bulls Bench outscored the Nets Bench 37-23. Bulls move to 11-16 while the Nets fall to 9-19 as they will owe a huge Luxury Tax Penalty at the end of the 2013-14 season and they might not even make the Playoffs.

CLIPPERS @ WARRIORS...For the CHRISTMAS Nightcap they give is LOB CIty vs Run T.L.C. at Planet ORACLE on WARRIORS Ground...Stop It! LOGO WATCH near the BLACK Hole in DUB City #LACvsGSW #CLIPS #DUBnation

Yes the LA Clippers playing Doc Rivers Ball on the Hardwood as it took around two months and that what it takes with solid rosters at the top to get use to the system if they are willing. The Clips come into Planet Oracle with a 5-Game Win Streak. The Blake Show has went to the 1030 pm CT Slot prime time as he has been bringing it along with MVP-Candidate CP3.

The Warriors have been back and forth but they just have been for the most part inconsistent and they have missed "Iggy of Dubs All Day" in 2G Andre Iguodala due to an injury. The Warriors come in at 16-13 and that is good for the 8th seed in the Top-Heavy Western Conference. Now we get the Clips vs Warriors on Christmas Night....fasten your Seat Belts and enjoy!
