NETS 96 BULLS 82 F...JJ of WOO PIG SOOIE and JORDAN Brand and LOPEZ Twin of STANFORD helps lead Team BARCLAYS over a BULLS Team that needed a "BOOST" from the LUV-A-Bulls, BENNY the Bull, and BULLS Nation!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" with SEE RED losing their 7-game win streak! #BKNvsCHI #NETSnation #BULLSnation

The Chicago Bulls just need a days rest after playing in a few back to backs from mid-December 'til now. Not making any excuses to what the Brooklyn Nets did to the Bulls on this night but See Red is running on fumes and needed a "Boost" from the Luv-A-Bulls, Benny the Bull and even Bulls Nation and that still wouldn't have worked.

Brooklyn with the nee approach to rotations with former All-Star Deron Williams coming off the bench simply just took it to the Bulls in every facet of the game. "Points in the Paint"and staying in "Attack Mode".

The Bulls leading 31-24 after one was outscored by the Nets 72-51 from the 2nd frame to the final horn. It was Brooks Lopez dominating the Bulls on the interior with a game-high 29 points (13-21 FG) and Joe Johnson's 20 points and eleven boards.

The Bulls get 23 points (5-9 3pt FG) from Bloodline Mike Dunleavy Jr. but that Five-Star Bulls back court of D-Rose and the "See Red Butler" combined for 5 for 27 including 0 for 8 from the Arc with  dozen points. Pau Gasol (10 pts 7 rebs) and Joakim Noah (12 pts 12 rebs) were the only other Bulls starters in double figures.

Bulls drop to 22-10 while the Nets move to 15-16...

See Red gets the Denver Nuggets on New Year's Day at 8pm ET...

 

STEELERS sign RB BEN TATE..."TRIPLE DIAMOND Chronicles" AFC Wild Card Edition as STEELERS sign ex-DAWG POUND RB Ben Tate as Bell Status for the RAVENS Game unknown! @BenTateRB #SteelersNation #Stairway2Seven

The Pittsburgh Steelers hurry up and add a Running Back to the 53-Man Playoff Roster in ex-Dawg Pound and Texans Pick Ben Tate. Tate is signed with the status of Steelers RB Le'veon Bell unknown Tate might be the featured RB or close to it.

Tate was ousted in Cleveland by both young Running Backs Isaiah Crowell and Terrence West. He will have to get up to speed as he can also catch out of the backfield. Look for the Steelers to also use both rookies RB's in Dri Archer and Josh Harris.

To make room for Tate the Steelers cut WR Justin Brown...    

Top 4 Games in "LOGO WATCH" for Tuesday DECEMBER 30th, 2014...the BIRTHDAY Boy @KingJames n "BELIEVELAND" Hoops in the new OMNI vs the new HAWKS...SPURS Family in the GRIND House vs the GRIZZ...WIZ Kids D.C. near Deep Ellum at the AA 214 vs Team SHARK TANK...and the DINOSAURS part of the "Only Game in Town" and BLAZER Mania! #CLEvsATL #SASvsMEM #WASvsDAL #TORvsPOR

Top 4 Games in "Logo Watch" for December 30, 2014...

#CavsNation (18-12) @ #HighlightFactory404 (22-8) 
7:30pm ET on NBA TV

The Cavs under all kinds of scrutiny with the Cavs Players not feeling lead man David Blatt. Two it's the King's Birthday and playing these 2014-15 Atlanta Hawks is no Birthday or Lil Debbie Snack Cake with sprinkles "Rainbow Cakes"!

The Cavs falling further and further behind the blazin' West Side Story Report starring the Chicago Bulls needs to get their identity and quick as we hit January 2K15. The Hawks have things in order splitting a Home/Home Series with the new "Fear the Deer" Milwaukee Bucks who are far from NBA Road Kill.

LeBron I hope you have other birthday plans because getting a "W" vs these Hawks is a tall order...

#SpursFamily (19-13) @ #GritGrind (22-8) 8pm ET 

Spurs coming off a huge victory at home beating the new-look Rockets are just two days away from getting out of December 2K14 above .500. Danny Green dba D.G. of AT&T has given Spurs Nation life as the former Tar Heel has been spectacular.

The Grizz without one of the Grind House Bigs in @macBO50 have been struggling of late. This might be the time the Spurs go onto Memphis and salvage a "W". The Grizz needs to get more production from their bench as Kosta Koufos and Quincy Pondexter are the two that must get it going! 
  
#WizKidsDC (22-8) @ #MavsNation (22-10) 830pm ET

The Wizards are coming off of a 104-103 "W" last night at the Toyota Center vs the Rockets. They get big nights from 21 points from the "Truth" Paul Pierce and 33 points from Bradley Beal starring in his twitter handle @RealDealBeal23. Thew Wiz are contenders in the East make no mistake about it!

The Mavs testing out their new machine took a hit in Phoenix with the Suns playing their Smart Car Package of Dragic, Thomas, and Bledsoe at the same time with both Morris Twins...go figure. The Mavs are still trying to figure out the pieces but "Double R" Rondo and "Mississippi Lightning" Monta along with Deutsche Marks in the Deep Ellum and AA 214 G.O.A.T. Dirk Nowitzki Dallas should be alright in winning time forget the 82-game trek! 

#WeTheNorth (24-7) @ #OnlyGameInTown (25-7) 10pm ET

The Raptors playing well without star SG DeMar DeRozan gets him back just in time for their current six game Motel swing. In his absence PG Kyle Lowry has put himself in elite PG company carrying the Dinosaurs on a nightly basis. They have been a tough out and they will be in the East Semi Finals believe that!

The Blazers are running right through the opposition and PG Damian Lillard has been en fuego. His sidekick is no Ramen Noodle Diet in Bloodline and Madison< Wisconsin Native Wes Matthews Jr. riding that wave created by "License to Lillard". This should be a good one especially the PG match up K.L. Philly vs Dame of East Bay.    

NBA Power Rankings Pre-NEW YEAR'S EVE Celebration 2K14 in "SQUEEZE the ORANGE" as its DUB Nation still holding serve but here comes the EAST in the DINOSAURS, the WEST SIDE Story Report, WIZ Kids D.C., and the HIGHLIGHT Factory 404! NBAPowerRankingsPreNewYearsEveCelebration2K14

The Golden State Warriors losing three of their last four games is still #1 in the Logo at a robust 24-5. The Rip City Blazers behind Point God Damian Lillard has been the most consistent team outside of the Warriors in the west.

The East is bottom-heavy but the top has the Raptors, Bulls, Wizards and Hawks all playing at a western conference like high-level hence the Wiz Kids D.C. win last night in Houston. The Bulls though appear to be the hottest team as they are on a roll winning their last seven. Now comes the NBA Power Rankings Pre-New Years Eve Celebration for all NBA Heads to see!

OKC needs KD as they are still under .500 as we enter January 2015...

Raptors playing at a high level as they get DeMar of Compton and Nike Basketball back into the fold...PG Kyle Lowry is it!

Hawks surprising everyone but themselves and they have a legit 1, 4 and 5 man who are All-Star worthy...Teague, Milsap and Horford in that order!

The most disappointing team to date outside of the the Knicks going 8-Track is Air Jordan's Charlotte Hornets as Hive Drive has no sting and has turned into the yellow brick road for visiting teams...the "Born Ready" Lance Stephenson singing looks like, smells like and is a El Busto!  

    


"MONSTERS inside the POCKET" talking 2014 PASSING YARD Leaders in the "Shield"...BREES of the NOLA Gumbo Saints and Big BEN of the "MEN of STEEL" are tied at the Top! #NFLPassingYardLeaders2K14

It was a horrible year to say the least for Saints QB Drew Brees dba "Bourbon Street Bomber" and Company talking the 2014 16-game trek. That had nothing to do with Brees putting up his usual numbers with a high interception rate. Brees still is an elite Sunday Signal-Caller but he would trade his 2K14 numbers for a shot at the big one as most predicted the Saints would do in the 2K14.

Steelers QB Big Ben Roethlisberger had a record breaking season for the Steelers in the pocket and thanks to two things. One Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley who took heat after heat his first two seasons in the 'Burgh. Then the hire of the 2014 off-season was getting Titans Lead Man and Steelers O-Line Coach Mike Munchak as Big Ben was super-clean in the pocket in 2014 then he has been in quite sometime.

PREDATORS 4 BLACKHAWKS 5 F/SO...the INDIAN HEAD in a Wild One goes for BROKE in the Shootout and wins vs the Music City PREDS!..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison talking HAWKS pull out 2 Points! #NSHvsCHI #PredsNation #OneGoal #FearTheINDIANHead

The Chicago Blackhawks and net minder Corey Carwford spotted the visiting Nashville Predators a three goal lead. The Preds scored on two goals in the 1st period behind Roman Josi and Craig Smith making it 2-0 after one. The Preds then made it 3-0 in the 2nd after former Pens LW James Neal beat Craw-Dad making it 30 Preds. The Hawks though after that goal went into 2015 Overdrive!

Behind a Brad Richards score midway through the 2nd and Andrew Shaw and Marian Hossa (PPG) goals with 2:30 left in the 3d the Hawks and Preds wee all tied at the Madhouse at 3-3 just like that! Preds James Neal though with under a minute remaining in the 2nd would beat Craw-Dad again for his 2nd goal of the night and a 4-3 P{reds lead heading into the 3rd.

Both teams skated from 18:47 until Bryan Bickell cored from David Rundblad and D.K. assists tying the game up at 4-4 heading into the five minute extra session. No one "Lit the Lamp" in that extra period as both teams went top a shootout.

It was a Captain Serious goal in the Hawks first shot that was the winner as the Preds missed all three of their attempts and the Indian Head picks up two points to stretch out that Central lead. Hawks win 5-4 in the Shootout moving them to 25-10-2 with 52 points.

Hawks Craw-Dad stopped 36 of 40 SOG and all three Preds attempts in the Shootout. Pekka Rinne of the Preds stopped 38 of 42 SOG as Jonathan Toews beat him in the Hawks first shot in the shootout the game-winner.

Preds fall to 23-9-3 with 49 points in 2nd place in the central behind the Indian Head...
 

BULLS 92 PACERS 90 F...SEE RED blows a huge lead in the 4th as the PACERS hit the PHONE BOOTH in the 4th and out came "GOLD SWAGGER" minus PG-13!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" It was a JIMMY Buckets "TRIFECTOR" from Spalding Basketball's that saves the BULLS from taking an "L"! #CHIvsIND #BULLSnation #PACERnation #WestSideStoryReport

The Chicago Bulls led 47-35 at the break and 81-65 after three only to find themselves in a alley fight in the "House that Miller Time" built. The Bulls were leading 83-66 with over ten minutes to go in the game when this happened!

The Pacers go on a 20-0 run in five minutes to take a 86-83 lead. Knicks Tape Castoff Chris Copeland had 11 of that 20 in the run including two money balls. After that run it was Jimmy Buckets time as the "See Red Butler" did what he has been doing in the 2014-15 season.

The Bulls (closing on a 9-4 run) made the necessary defensive stops to win the game but it was a Butler money ball with the Bulls down 90-89 with a 1:27 left that gave the Buls, the 92-90 lead and final score. Former Bulls PG and D-Rose Caddy CJ Watson with .5 seconds remaining missed a potential game-winning money ball in the corner as time expired.

Butler had a game-high 27 points and nine boards with Pau Gasol adding 20 points and D-Rose 17 points and six assists. The Pacers had six players in double figures led by Chris Copeland's 17 points including 11 in the 4th. Pacers Lead Man Frank Vogel went with the Reinforcements last as they were the ones who put the Pacers in the lead...imagine that no D-West, G-Hill or "Area 55"!

Bulls move to 22-9 while the Pacers drop to 11-21...

Next up for the "West Side Story Report" the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday December 30th on the 2nd leg of a back to back Motel/Home Swing...

It was going to happen and they knew as one coach was even cleaning out his things before this past weekend. The Bluedude is back with his favorite "Firing Squad" and who need the Guillotine in 2K14 and we didn't catch Robin of Locksley did we dba Robin Hood!

Without further a due here is the 2014 "Firing Squad" thus far for "Black Monday" with "Black Rain" in the forecast

Bluedude Sportstalk 2K14 "Firing Squad"

Chicago Bears alias #BearDown #BelieveInMonsters #MonstersOfTheMidway #BearsNation #TeamCutler

In front of the Firing Squad: GM Phil Emery Lead Man Marc Trestman aka Yoda

360 Degrees: Its this simple when you have a 5-11 QB and Coach your a 5-11 GM and they all went down as QB Jay Cutler was last seen grabbing moving products at Lowe's and also purchasing QB for Dummies at a Used Bookstore!

San Francisco 49ers alias #NinersNation #FortyNiners #SanFranFootball #Quest4Six

In front of the Firing Squad: Lead Man Jim Harbaugh aka I love me some Me!

360 Degrees: He knew it coming and it all started with getting no a Chips and bumping heads with Mr. Bigs (Jed York and GM Trent Baalke))and way too often in what world does an Earthling live where he goes after the person cutting his check...not Planet Earth and not the San Francisco 49ers as a Michigan Man can't coach a Niners Team!

New York Jets alias #GangGreen #MetLifeGreen #NYJets #TeamRex #GothamCityGreen

In front of the Firing Squad: GM John Idzik Lead Man Rex Ryan

360 Degrees: I have to give the benefit of doubt to Rex as his "D" was always doing what it does but here is a prime example of teams with no stability at QB's and there are 16-18 of those teams...

Atlanta Falcons alias #RiseUpFalcons #DirtyBirds #PeachDrop404Football #FalconsInRed

In front of the Firing Squad: Lead Man Mike Smith

360 Degrees: The Panthers saves him from going through another week of practice and a home game losing and then getting fired. Now Mr. Smith #FalconsInRed Edition gets a jump on cleaning his resume and looking for work.

The Bluedude Sportstalk "FIRING SQUAD" is not done see you later tonight or on "COLD TUESDAY"!

Note: Both Bears and Jets go Charles Bronson Double-Barrel Action as the GM was connected to the Coach he hired him right!

BENGALS 17 STEELERS 27 F..."Men of STEEL" captures the 2014 AFC North Title heading into the "Fight for LAMAR" with the #3 Seed in the AFC!..."TRIPLE DIAMOND Chronicles" talking STEELERS are back in Winning Time! #CINvsPIT #WhoDeyNation #SteelerNation #SNF #AFCNorthChamps #TripleDiamondChronicles

CONGRATS
to
the 
2014
PITTSBURGH STEELERS
AFC North Champions


First thing is first what is being reported is Steelers RB Le'veon Bell has a hyper extended Knee and did not return to the game. Having said that Bell will get more tests in the morning and you hope it there is no ligament damage.

As for the Steelers handling their business they did just that sweeping the Bungals and splitting two with the Dawg Pound and Purple Browns on their way to the 2014 AFC North Title. The Steelers did it in this game behind a solid O-Line, the Killer Bee's (Big Ben, Bell, Brown), and a more than solid defensive play especially that re-built secondary.

Bis Ben threw for 317 yards on 24 for 38 and two TD's and an INT. Bell ran for just 20 yards but had six grabs in the passing game for 80 yards. WR Antonio Brown ended his record-breaking 2014 grabbing seven more pigs for 128 yards and a TD. The Steelers Offense is explosive and they will pose huge problems in the "Fight for Lamar" moving forward!

The Bengals had their chances but missed as the "Strawberry Rifle" Bengals QB Andy Dalton was his normal self throwing for two TD's and throwing two INT's. LSU Rookie RB Jeremy Hill did run for 100 yards on 23 carries and they will need that next Sunday in Indy vs the Colts. Bengals WR AJ Green made his presence felt until fumbling late in the 4th on a grab. Green had eight grabs for 82 yards.

Now the "Men of Steel" will host the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday January 3, 2015 at Heinz Field for one of the AFC Wild Card Games. The Bengals travel to Indy Sunday December 4th and that is one tall order for the Bengals.


PACKERS and SEAHAWKS roll into the NFC Playoffs...NFL Week 17 "Late Slate" Recap in "A QB Driven League"...12's "D" and PACKERS "O" has them the NFC Favs! #STLvsSEA #DETvsGB

The Seattle Seahawks waited until after the break and finally put away a St. Louis Rams Team that was running on its "D" only for most of the 16-game trek. The Rams led 6-0 at the break and it was tied 6-6 after three. That's when the Seahawks "D" took over.

Behind a Interception by Seahawks Lineman Jordan Hill. That led to a "Beast Mode" TD making it 13-6. Then a few minutes later in the 4th Rams QB Shaun Hill hit TE Lance Kendricks only to fall in Seahawks Backer Bruce Irvins hands for a Pick 6 making the final score 20-6.

It was Seattle's "D" throughout and now they have home-field advantage throughout and look for the Seahawks to make their 2nd straight trip possibly back to the big bowl!

The Green Bay Packers rolled the Detroit Lions 30-20 and it was a combination of Lions Turnovers and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. A-Rog did enough playing with a bad calf and that has to be a huge concern for the Pack moving forward.

The Lions still are in the Playoffs as a wild card and must win three games to make it to the big bowl. The Packers have balance moving forward and the Lions still needs to clean up a bevy of items that a 11-5 team should not be making at this juncture in the season.

Two COWBOYS Records Fall in Week 17 vs #HTTR...."SUNDAY TALK" with the 'BOYS winning with RB DeMARCO MURRAY grabbing the Rushing Yards Record and WR DEZ BRYANT grabbing the TD Receptions Record for a single-season! @Cowboys #CowboysNation #JerrysNewTriplets

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray gets the Cowboys All-Time Rushing Records in Yards in a single-season passing the great HOF RB Emmitt Smith. Murray needed just 29 yard to do it and rushed for 100 yard on twenty carries.

Murray ended with 1,845 yards on 392 totes with Smith having 1,773 yards on 377 totes. Murray had 13 TD's with Emmit getting in the end zone 25 times back in 1995.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant gets the TD Reception Record of 15 getting 16 which was held by one Terrell Owens back in 2007. Dez ended up with four grabs for 99 yards and two TD's vs the 'Skins in a Cowboys 44-17 route!

Congrats to Jerry's New Triplets!

RAVENS and CHARGERS Business..."SUNDAY TALK" with the BOLTS losing in ARROWHEAD leading to the PURPLE Browns grabbing the #2 AFC Wild Card! #SDvsKC #CLEvsBAL

The San Diego Chargers were the one team on Sunday that controlled their own destiny and they could not finish the deal. The Bolts go into Arrowhead and loses to the Chiefs 19-7 behind a Chase Daniels led Red Friday Attack.

The Bolts could do nothing on offense and their "D" could not stop the Chiefs methodical approach led by RB Jamaal Charles and Tight End Travis Kelce. The Chargers ineffectiveness on 3rd down (2-11) and QB Phillip Rivers throwing two INT's spelled gloom and doom for Bolts Nation.

That loss left the door open for a Baltimore Ravens Bunch that took about three frames to get their mojo going vs the Cleveland Browns. The Ravens win 20-10 but it was a lot closer than the score indicated. The Ravens did it with QB Joe Flacco's Arm (22/36 316 yds 2 TD) and RB Justin Forsett on the ground (17 car 119 yds) as the Browns "D" kept it close.

Dawg Pound QB Connor Shaw played well under the circumstances as he made plays in the vertical passing game. The Browns O-Line let them down as the Ravens had four sacks and an INT with a plenty of hurries. Browns end the season with both Hoyer and Johnny Football on the bench and WR Josh Gordon suspended to keep him a restricted free agent.

The Ravens now await the announcement on who they will play as the AFC North winner if its the Steelers will get the Ravens at Heinz for round 3. The Steelers/Bengals loser will get the Colts traveling to Indy.

It doesn't get any better than this in the 16-game trek but it will get real big after the week 17 "Flex Game" talking AFC North Title for the 2014 NFL Season! The Cincinnati Bengals somehow beating the Broncos last Monday Night in the "Jungle on the Ohio" gets the Pittsburgh Steelers for the AFC North Title.

Last time these two teams met earlier in December The Steelers broke open a close game handing Who Dey a 42-21 breaking out in the 4th frame with huge numbers. This game should be closer as the loser falls to the wild card visiting team and the winner hosts a wild card game it's that simple.

#CINvsPIT AFC North Title Game Outlook

Areas of Concern 

#WhoDey Run "D", Steelers Killer B's (Big Ben, Bell, Brown), Which Dalton shows up?

#Steelers A.J. Green, Hill and Bernard, Steelers Secondary

The Bengals got things in order on Monday Night vs the Broncos as they won 37-28 picking off Manning Mile High four times. More impressive was the Bengals Rook RB Jeremy Hill running all over that much-improved Broncos "D". Now they get a Steelers bunch better now then when the Steelers beat the "Bungles" 42-21 in Cincy!

Who Dey must get Hill and Giovani Bernard going and that screen passing and Andy Dalton following TE Jermaine  Gresham will not work as Dick LeBeau has already took care of that so did the Bluedude playing this game on Madden...Steelers 48 Bengals 17 F. The Bengals must have offensive balance and if they don't and leave everything up to the Strawberry Rifle" Dalton...they will lose!

The Triple Diamond Chronicles Triplets Big Ben, Le'veon Bell, and Antonio Brown are coming right at the Bengals. Who Dey must stop Bell on the ground first to slow down the Steelers explosive offense. Bengals DT Geno Atkins from #DawgSaturday (Georgia Bulldogs) is a huge key and Twin #53 must take care of him.

Can that Bengals Secondary slow down the Steelers Air Attack that is far from just A.B. and Bell out of the back field?  Steelers TE Heeeeeeaath Miller, WR Markus Wheaton, and deep threat Martavis Bryant are real threats and Steelers O-Coordinator Todd Haley has done a nice job masking what he is going to do with the same sets. The Bengals Backers are hurting to with Vontaze Burfict on I.R. and the Steelers will look to take full advantage of this.

Winner: Steelers 31-13

Both Corey Crawford and Calvin Pickard after one had to be thinking I have to stop the bleeding or I will be watching the rest of this one behind my bench. Having said that both the Hawks and Avs skated to a 2-2 tie after one with both teams making more of less.

The Avs got off to a 1-0 lead after Star Nathan MacKinnon slapped one by "Craw-Dad" for his 6th . Then it was Hawks Brandon Saad scoring his 8th tying the game up at 1-1. That tie lasted not even two minutes as the Avs Erik Johnson slapped one for a 2-1 Avs lead. The Indian Head gets a Patrick Kane tip-in tying it up at 2-2 as all that scoring was done on a combined 15 SOG.

The Hawks got things in order after that with Brent Seabrook scoring the only goal (Power Play) in the 2nd for a Hawks 3-2 lead. The Indian Head's "D" tightened up as did their check game scoring on the 2nd power play of the night with a Patrick Sharp goal making it 4-2. The Bison City Mullet Patrick Kane finished it up after that with an empty netter.

Craw-Dad ended up stopping 23 for 25 SOG as Avs net minder Pickard stopped 28 of 32 SOG. The Hawks took full advantage of their Power Play going for 2 for 4. They also out shot the Avs 33-25.

The Indian Head moves to 24-10-2 and 50 points just two points of West #1 the Mighty Ducks with 52 points. The Indian Head gets the tough Preds on Monday December 29th before the 2015 Winter Classic match in D.C. at Nats Park vs the Caps as they will have a NAT-itude!

NFL Week 17 "Late Slate" 4:25pm ET Games in "A QB Driven League"...

#PanthersPride (6-8-1) @ #RiseUpFalcons (6-9) 
NFC South Title Game  

The Falcons beat them in Carolina and both teams have been running on fumes for 16 weeks as it all comes down to this..win and get a home playoff game. The Panthers took off last few weeks when RB Jonathan Stewart entered the fray. The Falcons won a big one last week in the Big Easy putting the Saints out of the running for the NFC South title. Now they need WR Julio Jones healthy as the Birds come in just 3-4 under some home-cooking!

Winner: Falcons 30-26...Matty Ice > Cam

#RaiderNation (3-12) @ #UnitedInOrange (11-4)

The Broncos need to make amends for last week's roller coaster ride in the "Jungle on the Ohio". Do not discredit the Silver and Black as many on that 53-man roster are is playing for the new staff and jobs in 2015. Broncos QB Manning Mile High just needs to get back being sharp and that Broncos "D" needs to get back to stopping the run and hunting the QB on 3rd down. They win they get a 1st round bye in the "Fight for Lamar"!

Winner: Broncos 34-17...

#RestoreTheRoar (11-4) @ 
#WisconsinCheeseBrats&Football (11-4)
NFC North Title Game

As both teams were moving along after the Lions got after the "Pack" in FOrd Field back in September you knew it might come down to that week 17 match up looking at the schedule. The Lions are 11-4 and have been winning ugly but winning. They need to clean up though a host of items before they play the "Pack" on Sunday or they will be a on the road in the wild card game.

A-Rog's Calf is alright and the Packers who looked like the Fav in the NFC along with the Hawks Nest 206 have stumbled across to week 17 with some lack luster showing in week 15 and 16. Having said that they are in the playoffs but this one is for the NFC North and nothing else!

Winner: Packers 22-17...A-Rog > Staff

#STLRams (6-9) @ #HawksNest206 (11-4)
For NFC West Title

The Rams have been playing a physical brand of football the ladder half of the 2014 season and nothing will change in this one. Expect the Rams to be taking some shots at the Seahawks and if Pete Carroll and the gang get ahead he needs to start puling folks. The Seahawks need to win and stay in that solid offensive and defensive rhythm they are currently in. Seahawks win they will get a 1st round bye...

Winner: 12's 34-6...the Front 7 and the L.O.B. sprinkled with "Beast Mode" and QB @dangeRUSSwilson

#BirdGang (11-4) @ #FortyNiners (7-8)

Well you come with a bang and you leave with one as Jim Harbaugh just couldn't wait until the end of the season to get that Michigan Job could he? Like I said if you are always sticking it to folks you get your turn #Karma and his turn is up!

Meanwhile the Cards trying to figure out this QB thing will go with Rook QB Logan Thomas of Beamer Ball Blacksburg VA and lookout! That "Next Man Up" Theory never works at the QB Slot and it won't work now. That is bad luck for a Cards Team through NFL Week 10 looked like the team to beat in the NFC...sorta!

Winner: 49ers 23-6...Niners Players expected not to be carrying anyone off that field!    



PELICANS 100 BULLS 107 F...Again Time after Time the "SEE RED Butler" JIMMY Buckets with the BULLS Bench Mob lending plenty of Hands!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" BULLS running off in the Winner's Circle as we enter 2K15! #NOPvsCHI #StateBirdOfLouisiana #BullsNation #WestSideStoryReport

The Chicago Bulls doing what they do winning their 6th game in a row following the lead of the Logo's only Butler. That's right forget Most Improved Player how about All-Star game NYC 2K15 and more mentions as the 2nd best two-way SG in the Logo. That would Jimmy Butler and Gar and Pax ask J.R. (Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf) can you match that offer sheet Mr. Butler will be getting this summer from the Knicks.

Butler leads five Bulls into double figures on a night the Bulls two top "Bigs" like Pau Pau Pau and Jo All-Star didn't get it going on the offensive end. Butler gets game-high 33 points on 12 for 18 from the field (9-10 FT) with D-Rose adding 19. The Bulls Bench Mob taking shape added 37 points coming from A-Brooks, E.T. Moore, the Taj-Manian Devil, and Niiiiiikooooola!  

The Pelicans just didn't have enough horses behind their trio of Ant the "Brow" Davis, Jrue Holiday, and Rekehavoc Evans. Davis led the N.O.P. with 29 points grabbing eleven boards and blocking six shots. Rekehavoc added 26 points and five helpers with Jrue chipping in with 19 points and seven helpers.

Bulls move to 21-9 and the Pelicans fall to 15-15...  

RAPTORS 110 CLIPPERS 98 F..."LOGO WATCH" going Saturday Matinee with #WeTheNORTH unleashing RAPTORS in STAPLES L.A. Sports Arena Set-Up eating CLIPPERS Nation and Billy Crystal! #TORvsLAC #DinosaurLove #NewCLIPjoint

The Toronto Raptors all business on a quiet Saturday Afternoon at the Figueroa Street L.A. Gymnasium playing home to the L.A. Clippers on this day smack the Clips 110-98. The Raptors following K.L. of Philly and Jonas of Lithuania dominated the action  in the 4th as it was nip and tuck through three.

The Dinosaurs leading 80-78 after three frames went on a 23-8 run to start the 4th and was leading 101-86 with just over 5 minutes remaining in the game. That run was led by five money balls from Patrick Patterson (1), Greivis Vasquez (2), and Lou Williams (2).

The Clips going nearly two minutes between baskets starting the 4th would never catch the Raptors losing 110-98. Kyle Lowry led the Raptors with 25 points and seven helpers. Jonas Valanciunas added 22 points and eleven boards. Vasquez off the bench chipped in with 16 points including those two money balls in the 4th that were huge.

The Clippers falling 20-11 gets 23 points from JJ Redick from Duke in the NBA and 22 points from Blake with Jamal 206 adding 20. DeAnde Jordan had four points but twenty rebounds in the loss.

#WeTheNorth eating Clippers Nation and Clips super-fan Billy Crystal moves to an impressive 23-7 without Compton, California HS Star by way of Men of Troy Hoops DeMar DeRozan.

NFL Week 17 "Early Slate" Take 2 in "A QB Driven League"...

#BillsMafia (8-7) @ #PatsNation (12-3)

That Bills Front will be hunting as there are clauses in contracts that still need to be met for more $$$$$! Pats need to be careful protecting Tom Terrific and the Past will be given the Bills a heavy dose of the run. New England has home-field locked up in the "Fight for Lamar"!

Winner: Pats 23-13....

#WhyEaglesWhy (9-6) @ #NYFootballGiants (6-9)

The Eagles are in a bad dream and Santa could not get to Philly and the Linc to deliver Eagles are in the NFC Playoffs soon enough. He was a month late. Meanwhile G-Men rookie WR Odell Beckham Jr. is worth the price of Cable, a 50-yard line seat at Met Life Blue, and Red Zone T.V. watching. So much for Eli Manning having a bad 2014 he was picked up nicely by O.D.B. Jr..

Winner: G-Men 30-27...

#NOLAGumboSaints (6-9) @ #ItsABucsLife (2-13)

Saints play really well out if the Motel as both Ryan's look to be looking for work before 2015 arrives. The Bucs and Lovie Smith need to throw away all the 2014 Tapes!

Winner: Saints 3-2

#BlueSwaggerColts  (10-5) @ MusicCityTitans (2-13)

The Colts need to get back on track heading into the Playoffs as they have not been playing their best football of late. The Titans should help them get back on track as Tennessee will be getting a Top 5 Pick in the 2015 NFL Draft!

Winner: Colts 38-10...

#CowboysNation (11-4) @ #HTTR (4-11)

Dallas needs to keep everyone healthy leaving this game and maybe QB Romo will get a rest as he needs not to take one hit. RB DeMarco Murray needs to rest his hands as the "Skins will not have any good intentions in this one holding nothing back. Cowboys will be all out trying to capture a Top 2 Seed in the "Fight for George" for the NFC!

Winner: 'Boys 34-23...


NFL Week 17 "Early Slate" Take 1 in "A QB Driven League"...DAWG Pound in CHARM City vs PURPLE BROWNS...KHANstruction JAGS @ TEXANS...BOLTS in Arrowhead vs RED FRIDAY...GANG GREEN @ AQUA Boyz 305...and BEARS @ SKOL! #CLEvsBAL JAXvsHOU #SDvsKC #NYJvsMIA #CHIvsMIN

NFL Week 17 "Early Slate" Take 1 in "A QB Driven League"...

#DawgPound (7-8) @ #PurpleBrowns (9-6) 

The Browns with a QB Carousel going on will start South Carolina Rookie Conner Shaw at QB and enough of Johnny Football. Meanwhile WR Josh Gordon is suspended for breaking a team rules go figure. As for the Ravens they need help and they need to take care of their business first and then hope the Chargers lose to the Chase Daniels led Chiefs.

Winner: Ravens 27-24



#KHANstructionJags (3-12) @ #BullsOnParade (8-7)

The Jags under some serious KHANstruction finally gets to game 16 and Rook QB Blake Bortles has to be thinking we need O-Linemen in the 2015 NFL draft. The Texans need help but is QB Case Keenum looking good and I know it was one game but maybe they should have gave this kid a shot in Week 1 in 2014 as he would have been better than Ryan Fitzpatrick. Texans can still get into the "Fight for Lamar" but they need a miracle and miracles sometimes happen!

Winner: Texans 24-13



#BoltsUp (9-6) @ #RedFriday (8-7)

The Chargers control everything in the AFC as there are 5 teams already in the playoffs with one slot remaining with San Diego in that slot as we start week 17. Everything for the Bolts is in their favor but they need to take care of their business and Chiefs QB Chase Daniels poses far greater concern then having Alex Smith at QB. Daniels can move the Pig skin vertically on the passing game and the Bolts "D" better be ready. Bolts lose Ravens win the Purple Browns are in winning time!

Winner: Chiefs 20-17

#GangGreen (3-12) @ #AquaBoyz305 (8-7)

Rex Ryan will land somewhere quickly but will it be as a Lead Man or D-Coordinator? Mark Sanchez, Mike Vick, and Geno Smith among others holding down the QB slot under Ryan's tenure...hmmmmm! As for the Phins they need major help as their slide late in November and early December folded them up for 2014. Will the Dolphins make a move at QB in 2015 as it looks like Ryan Tannehill is their guy?

Winner: Phins 23-10


#BearDown (5-10) @ #SKOLnation (6-9)

I know this the Halas Hall on Monday December 29th there will be Two-Men and a Truck parked out front with Security Guards waiting for Coaches and a player. The Vikings are building and Rook QB Teddy Bridgewater looks the part and he and Raiders QB Derek Carr look to be the best two QB's out of the2014 Draft moving forward as its still early!

Winner: Vikes 34-17

#1 KENTUCKY 58 #4 LOUISVILLE 50 F...The PINT-SIZED Players in the "Battle for the BLUEGRASS State" Show and prove as the 'CATS have too many DAWGS!..."CAMPUS HARDWOOD" as the #BBN > CARDS Nation this time! #UKvsLousiville #WeRUK #UofLCards

Too many contested shots and if you put the Orange on the deck you better have Louisville 5pm Weekday Rush Hour Handles or that was null and void as well. A knockdown drag out took place at the Big Bucket of Chicken dba KFC Yum Center and the 'Cats just have too may 'Dawgs in the end.

Kentucky scratched and clawed to a 22-18 lead at the break as this was played like a high school state championship game low-scoring with every possession played like it was the last of the game. UK and Louisville came out in the 2nd half the same as the first until midway through the 2nd half when it appeared the 'Cats size and length was finally getting to the Cards.

It was a Tyler Ulis money ball at the 7:24 mark of the 2nd half coupled with a a Aaron Harrison made free throw and another "J" by Ulis pushing the lead to double digits 45-34 for the first time in the game. Kentucky went onto win 58-50.

Louisville never recovered as it was the Freshman Ulis leading UK with 14 points as the pint-sized Matteson, Illinois native is the nasty little creature. Pint-Sized PG Terry Rozier led the Cards with 15 points while grabbing eight boards as the little men impacted the game for both teams.

As far as the 2015 Top NBA Prospects in UK's Karl Anthony-Towns, Trey Lyles, and Willie Cauley-Stein along with Louisville's Montrezl Harrell just too much action in the paint to get a clean look all game long. Lyles by far to me is the most versatile as he is a 6'9" PF with wing-like NBA Skills and is NBA-ready as the other ones motors and size has them also NBA-ready.

The #BBN moves to 13-0 while the Cards fall to 11-1 and they will meet again trust me on that on an even bigger stage...
 
   

#1 KENTUCKY (12-0) @ #4 LOUISVILLE (11-0) going "CAMPUS HARDWOOD" and Hmmm Hmmm KFC Good!...The "Battle for the BLUEGRASS State" hits the KFC YUM Center with No Wings or POT PIES but a 'CATS vs CARDS Kentucky Derby-like Matinee! #UKvsLouisville #WeRUK #UofLCards #SEC #ACC

The Kentucky Wildcats will get Louisville's best shot and they know it as Kentucky vs Louisville in the KFC Yum Center with Colonel Sanders looking down on his boys is almost as big as the world's fastest two minutes in sports the "Kentucky Derby"!

Here we go and many had this circled on their calendar as the 'Cats and 'Cards meet in downtown Louisville with both teams undefeated. Kentucky loaded on the front line with NBA Scouts and Teams drooling and the 'Cats with a Monster in Montrezl Harrell who dodged the 2K14 NBA Draft and came back for moments like this.

PLAYBOOK

The Cards must have all bodies on the defensive glass...(Rebounding)

Kentucky must match the Cards intensity and meet their press head on...

Louisville cannot match the 'Cats Depth but staying out of foul trouble and being smart will go a long way...can Montrezl Harrell stay away from the dumb stuff?

Will "Black" show up for Louisville and that would be Chicago Native and senior Wayne Blackshear who has been for the most part a disappointment....

Kentucky's 2nd Line of Ulis, Booker, Lee, Johnson, and Willis is Top-Shelf can U of L match that?

Can Louisville shoot a good enough percentage from Deep to off set Kentucky's dominance in the paint?

Montrezl Harrell and nothing else....Louisville needs him and can he play within the confines of Team and stop talking so darn much?

UK has to handle that 'Cards press...

Live Turnovers vs Turnovers...who wins?

Transition Buckets vs Transition Defense...who wins?

UK has to keep that U of L Crowd out the game...can they succeed?

Coach Cal vs Coach Pitino priceless...

"Hustle Board" who wins?

Louisville's unknowns like Anton Gill (Bloodline Dad former Flyin' Illini All-American and NBA Great Kendall Gill), David Levitch, and Anas Mahmoud will they show up?

LAKERS 98 MAVERICKS 102 F...LAKER Gang in "Coming out of the Motel" BLACK with No BLACK MAMBA but SWAGGY P and C-BOOZ 5 on Full Alert hangs tough but too much "DOUBLE R" RONDO, "MISSISSIPPI Lightning" MONTA, and the MAVS G.O.A.T. @swish41 now #8 on the LOGO's All-Time Scoring List!..."LOGO WATCH" from the AA 214 with the MAVS doing what they were expected to do...grab a "W"! #LALvsDAL #LakerNation #MavsNation @Swish41

The Los Angels Lakers hitting a tough stretch playing on December 25th and 26th out of the Motel played tough in both minus taking the losses! It was a tough top-tier Mavs Bunch led by Point God Rajon Rondo "Double R" leading the way with 21 points, eight boards, and seven assists as the Mavs avoid a late push by Laker Gang for a 102-98 victory!

The Lakers down 48-42 at the break fell behind by the end of 3rd 72-62. It was Rondo leading the way through three with 16 points as Carlos Boozer led the Lakers through three with 16 points after a solid night back in the Madhouse!

Dallas opened a 95-79 lead with under four minutes to go as the Lakers "Swaggy P' Nick Young got hot from the Arc making five money balls with 15 points on the night. He also went 0 for 8 from two-point range. It was a "Mississippi Lightning" Monta Ellis free throw that kept the Mavs out of harm way with a 102-98 win.

Joining Rondo's 21 was Tyson Chandler and Monta with 15 points apiece. The Mavs G.O.A.T. Dirk Nowitzki added a 14 points and eight boards passing the Washington Bullets and former Houston Cougar Star Elvin the "Big E" Hayes for 8th all-time in scoring.

Boozer led the Lakers with 18 and 8 boards with Swaggy P's 15 and Jordan Hill and Wayne Ellington each dropping a dozen. Lakers fall to 9-21 while the Mavs move to 21-10 in a top-heavy West!


SPURS 90 PELICANS 97 F...You know what happened talking NBA Hoops in the "504" near MOTHER'S Restaurant N.O. it was all about the "BROW" of NIKE Basketball as "State BIRD of LOUISIANA" power past SPURS Family struggling to hit the Winner's Circle!..."LOGO WATCH" with the Up & Coming Western Conference "BIG BIRDS" the NOLA Gumbo PELICANS! #SASvsNOP #SpursNation #PelicansNation

San Antonio Spurs have hit the wall and from the looks of the Western Conference come winning time who wants to be in that Top 4 real talk. Meanwhile that Pelicans Year 3 plan following Anthony Davis' lead is getting rave reviews!

Behind the Nike Basketball Hyperposite 2 worn by @AntDavis23 the #1 Pelicans NOLA rolled a 97-90 win. Davis led all scorers with 22 points, eleven boards, and five blocks. It's not just the numbers on the stat sheet its his overall impact in the game and his defensive prowess around the rim and the paint is unmatched reminding me of a young Farragut Academy Chicago, Illinois Star Kevin Garnett of the T'Wolves by way of Mauldin, South Carolina...that darn good!

The Spurs just didn't have enough as Cory Joseph matched Tim Duncan's 20 points with "Dunc" adding eleven boards. It was Ryan Anderson's 22 points off the Pelican Bench that put the NOLA Gumbo Pelicans in the winner's circle with "REKEhavoc" and Jrue having average games.

The Spurs -11 in makes from the foul line and -10 in attempts coupled with some 17 turnovers all out of the motel will keep you getting L's! They know taking care of the Spalding Orange along with staying in attack mode getting to the line is A-1 in the Logo.

The Pelicans move to 15-14 while the Spurs are at 18-13 and they need that January 2015 Schedule that has just 14 games and two back to backs and that is some much-needed rest!

Spurs get the Red Nation Rockets in H-Town on Sunday December 28...not good!    

ROCKETS 117 GRIZZLIES 111 F/OT...J-SMOOVE 5 to the Red Nation Bench Rescue + "Fear the BEARD" @JHarden13 (wearing NIKE Zoom Run PE) = a "W" in Extras in the GRIND HOUSE!..."LOGO WATCH" going Charlie Rendezvous RIB Platter and a Four-Game Skid by the GRIZZ! #HOUvsMEM #RedNation #GritGrind

The Houston Rockets get a "Gift" from the Basketball Gods and what they got was a what looked to be a disgruntled Josh Smith from the Motor City Pistons. The former Atlanta Celtics AAU Star with now teammate Dwight Howard now has to be in the best comfort zone in his decade into the Logo and Western Conference "Texas Triangle" is starting look like the Bermuda Triangle.  

Fast forward to J-Smoove's st game as a Red Nation Rockets grabbing his digits #5 and he gives the Grit and Grind Grizz 21 points and eight boards with just two money ball attempts as the Rockets get a huge victory in Memphis.

Add "Fear the Beard" James Harden (wearing the Harden Nike Basketball's Nike Zoom Run P.E.) game-high 32 points, ten helpers, and eight boards with Trevor Ariza adding 15 points and ten boards the Rockets will be formidable and a tough put moving forward. The Rockets were +21 in points from the arc and that was the difference as the Grizz couldn't find the mark from 23'9"!

The Grizz was led by Marc Gasol's 29 points and eight boards as that Grizz Bench kept them afloat. The Bench scored 53 points to the Rockets Bench scoring 48. The biggest number moving forward for Clutch City is they came in 30th in the NBA in bench scoring at 21.5 ppg. That number will increase with J-Smoove 5 as a top reinforcement.

The Rockets move to 21-7 while the Grizz fall to 21-8 on a 4-game skid...

Note: Grizz needs to get back the #1 Caddy @MacBO50 dba Sparty's Zach Randolph from Marion, Indiana HS...

Dwight of Three Stripes" Howard in foul trouble all night was bailed out by his childhood friend J-Smoove 5 picking up the slack...c'mon Dwight get that grin off your face its "Grown Folks Business" trying to get a Chip!

BUCKS 107 HAWKS 77 F...What in the Atlanta OMNI happened to the High-Flying HAWKS of 404 Pro Hoops as "FEAR the DEAR" blasts the HIGHLIGHT Factory behind Mr. DUD of Chestnut Hill U Hoops and BEER Town USA Pro Hoops Bench called Extra SUDS!..."LOGO WATCH" A Day After CHristmas with the HAWKS drinking way too much of their own HUNCH PUNCH! #MILvsATL #FearTheDEER #HighlightFactory404

The Milwaukee Bucks maybe got hooked up from Santa as the Santa Tracker did say Santa and Rudolph and the Gang dropped some unknowns packages at the Bradley Center looking like huge letter's all W's. Now putting two and two together that has to be W's for Wins right!

Well in Atlanta on T.G.I.F. a day after Christmas Day shopping until you drop "Fear the Deer" had other ideas. The Hawks get caught drinking way too much of their Highlight Factory 404 Hunch Punch and gets drilled by the Bucks 107-77. Atlanta I will give you one in the 82-game trek since you have been playing like contenders.

Behind a career night to remember from Jared Dudley dba Mr Dud of Beer Town USA and Boston College Hoops Mr. Dud goes 10 for 10 from the field and 4 for 4 from the arc for a game-high 24 points. The hawks leading by two after one 24-22 took command in the 2nd frame and led 58-42 at the break. They would never be threatened after that running away with a 107-77 "W"!

Bucks PG Brandon "Knight Rider" Knight added 16 points and he led three starters in double figures with Mr. Dud getting his game-high off the cedar!

The Hawks get no days off from All-Star Paul Milsap as he led Atlanta with 22 points and eleven boards as the Atlanta Bench did absolutely nothing with 27 points and the Bucks Bench called "Extra Suds" going for 54 points.

The Bucks move to 15-15 while the Hawks fall to 21-8...

23. What If...the San Diego Padres are picked to finish higher than both the Giants and Dodgers is that being realistic for the 2015 NL West projections?

Top 2 Games in "LOGO WATCH" going December 26th the Christmas "AFTERMATH" #Gifts or #NoGifts!...CLUTCH City hits the GRIND HOUSE for "Date Night" with the GRIZZ...and SPURS hit the Big Smoothie vs the NOLA Gumbo PELICANS! #HOUvsMEM #SASvsNOP

Top 2 Games in "LOGO WATCH" going December 26, 2014 the Christmas "AFTERMATH"...

#RedNation (20-7) @ #GritGrind (21-7) 8pm ET on NBA TV

The Houston Rockets and Memphis Grizzlies hopefully received a few gifts under the tree to fix their shortcomings. Now they meet in Logo Watch in the Grind House in the Christmas "Aftermath" for 1st place in the rugged NBA southwest.

The Rockets get a boost as they sign recently waived PF Josh Smith from the Detroit Pistons. That adds to an already talented pot of players as now the Rockets will have more flexibility up front.

The Grizz looking to get back to Inside/Out talking Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph as Z-Bo has been nursing a few different injuries. PG Mike Conley Jr. has been all-star ish and has the keys to the Grizz 1st place Whip!

  
#SpursFamily (18-12) @ #NOLAGumboPelicans (14-14) 8pm ET

The San Antonio Spurs struggling to get out of December must get this one vs the Pelicans. Tim Duncan and Manu Ginoboli have been carrying the load and the Spurs just need to get healthy. Kawhi Leonard's Injury is a huge concern and who knows as he has seen a few hand specialist.

The Pelicans are ready to take that next step and Anthony Davis has arrived. Pelicans are 14-14 and PG Jrue Holiday and SG Tyreke Evans have been big through the first 28 games. Can New Orleans get into that West mix of Teams which looks to be a 50-32 team might not get the 8th seed?

"Elvis" of the Purple Browns is also in the neighborhood who will win the 2014 Red Jersey Collector Title last year held by Colts and Alabama A&M University Alum Robert Mathis?

360 Degrees...

Houston is in a Contract Year and I know what your thinking on where he will go....shut up and keep it moving!

Watt dba "Area 99" is not an Earthling and the best defensive players in the shield and it isn't even close...

Dumervil and T-Sizzle combining for 28 Red Jersey Collections and now if they could only get QB Ordinary Joe to join the fray and compete week in and week out...real talk!

Barwin was called a Combine Workout King and now has the numbers to back up he is also a football player...

Kerrigan is the Core of that 'Skins Front as Teammate Brian Orakpo has to be all but gone in D.C. with Kerrigan getting his and Orakpo Duffel Bags...

Super Mario Williams is no small fry and he along with DT's Marcel Dareus and Kyle Williams are a delicious Trio up front and the best in the "Shield" talking D-Line...

Griffen has flourished under Vikes new lead man Mike Zimmer and his Defensive Scheme...

Wake is the one constant for Philbin's "D" in the 305...

T-Sizzle still has it and the Ravens still have a solid and a Top 3 Red Jersey Collection Duo in the "Shield"...  

Chiefs QB SMITH and Seahawks RB LYNCH Business in "SUNDAY TALK"...ALEX SMITH out for CHIEFS vs BOLTS at Arrowhead after Surgery!...."BEAST MODE" fined $11,050 for grabbing "GRAPES" on his backwards dive into PAY DIRT vs BIRD GANG! #AlexSmith #ChiefsPride #BeastModeNews #12s

In a game that means everything to the Kansas City Chiefs and even more to the visiting San Diego Chargers the news is not good for Red Friday. Through numerous media outlets Chiefs QB Alex Smith will be out for the Week 17 Chiefs vs Chargers Tilt due to a lacerated spleen. That injury takes 6 weeks at the minimum for recovery and the Chiefs will go with former Mizzou Star Chase Daniels.

Bolts he can throw better than Smith regardless his title as a back up. The Chiefs might be able to do more things in the vertical passing games as Daniels lost his last start which was vs the Bolts in week 17 in 2013....De Ja Vu in Arrowhead who knew!

The Seattle Seahawks Coaches didn't see it but the players had to see as I saw it when he did it.12's RB Marshawn Lynch on that 79-yard TD Run in week 16 vs the rival Cardinals commonly referred to at Bluedude Sportstalk as "Earthquake 2" did something at the end of that run. Lynch turned around jumping in the air backwards over the goal line while grabbing his "Grapes". Yes I know what your thinking but not the ones at your local grocer but his own.

I new right away once the League Office got the tape and saw it there would be some consequences as the "NO FUN LEAGUE" is just following suit! Marshawn fined a reported $11,050 for that "Action" Boss! Beast Mode next time just put the Wilson pig skin in that area and act like you fumbling it!

LAKERS 93 BULLS 113 F...SEE RED pulls away late behind D-ROSE, the "SPANIARD" Gasol, JIMMY Buckets, and the A-BROOKS/MIROTIC Duo from the BULLS Bench Mob doing what they do to most NBA Backcourts!...LAKERS played tough behind WES, "Hustle Man" HILL< and former Bulls PF C-BOOZ 5!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" here comes the BULLS getting better and better! #LALvsCHI #LakerNation #BullsNation #WestSideStoryReport

The Bulls escaped a game that if they had play an elite team in the west See Red most likely would have taken a Christmas Night loss. This though was the 9-19 Lakers coming in with no Kobe Bryant resting as the Lakers played the Bulls tough anyway after the fact.

In a key stretch in the 2nd the Bulls led the Lakers 52-36 with just over two minutes to go. The Lakers with just under ten minutes to go in the 3rd after the break had the lead cut to two points 60-58 going on a 22-8 run in that span. It was just too much Pau Gasol, D-Rose, and Jimmy Butler in the end.

The Bulls closed that 3rd frame leading 83-77 and never looking back in the 4th pushing that lead to 15 with two minutes remaining at 106-91. The Bulls close on a 7-2 run from there as Gasol led with 23 points and thirteen boards. Butler added 21 points and six boards with D-Rose 20 points.

The Bulls Bench Mob gets a huge lift from Taj Gibson as he adds 9 points and seven boards to go with Nikola Mirotic and Aaron Brooks 13 points apiece.

The Lakers were led by Wes Johnson's 19 points, Ed Davis' 13 points and fourteen boards, and Jordan Hill's 16 points and six boards. No Kobe as he gets a DND Coach's Decision.

Bulls move to 20-9 while the Lakers fall to 9-20...    

CAVALIERS 91 HEAT 101 F..."LOGO WATCH" going LeBRON GAME back in the AA 305!..."BELEIVELAND" gets a vintage juiced up LI-NING Scooby Doo wearing "FLASH" in WADE County and LUUUUUUOL DENG on his A-Game as the HEAT beat the CAVS! #CLEvsMIA #CvasNation #HEATgang

The Cleveland Cavaliers knew they would have to get into the fight wit LeBron as the Heat wanted no part of King James getting a "W" in his 1st game back in the 305 after he left the Heat. Li-Ning Star and Marquette Warrior Great and Chicago native Dwayne "Wade County" Wade turned the clock back on the Cavs giving them the Christmas Stocking Business with a game-high 31 points, five assists, and five boards.

The game was controlled mainly by the Heat as the Cavs tied the game up early in the 4th at 80-80 and the Heat ended the game on a 21-11 run. The run was culminated by Luol Deng's and the "Circle City Strangler' Danny Granger's inspired play down the stretch. Deng added 25 points and Granger nine points. Heat went onto win 101-91.

The Cavs were led by King James of course with 30 points and eight assists with Point God Kyrie Irving adding a cool 25 points. It was the "Hustle Board" where the Cavs lost at as the Heat simply wanted it more.  

The Cavs shot 33 free throws to the Heats 17 but missed a dozen of those 33 and that also led to the loss poor foul shooting.  Heat moves to 14-16 as the Cavs fall to 17-11...

THUNDER 114 SPURS 106 F...WHY NOT? #0 wearing JORDAN BRAND as RUSSELL WESTBROOK goes in on SPURS Family as OKC needed this "W"!..."REGULATORS Repport OKC" with SPURS Lead Man "POPS" sounding like it was no Christmas on the Spurs Bench! #OKCvsSAS #ThunderNation #SpursFamily

Behind Russell Westbrook and his Nike Basketball/Jordan Handle "Why Not? #0" Russ delivers Gifts for Thunder Nation vs the Spurs. Westbrook goes for a game-high 34 points, eleven assists, and grabs six boards as San Antonio could do nothing to stop Russ.

The Spurs with seven players in double figures and Matt Bonner dba "Red Rifle" leading the way with 17 points has major issues all game long. They could not keep the Thunder off the glass (16 offensive rebounds) and they didn't guard and plating at home on Christmas Day or on any other day is a no no in the Logo under Spurs Lead Man "Pops"!    

OKC moves to 14-16 with Serge Ibaka dba "Air Congo" adding 21 points and nine boards. New Zealander Steven Adams grabs fifteen boards to go with his 16 points.

The Spurs falling to 18-12 needs to get healthy but for now they need all hands on deck. Tim Duncan added 15 points with six boards and Cory Joseph with 14 points.  

WIZARDS @ KNICKS going "LOGO WATCH" Christmas Rundown WIZ Kids D.C. vs KNICKS with Gang Green!...WALL-STAR does his damage giving the KNICKS Nation #NoGifts!...Q-ACY slow your roll the "LOGO" needs WALL-Star but you plenty in the D-League! #WSHvsNYK #DCWizardry #KnicksVHS

Washington Wizards going Christmas Day at MSG takes care of the Gang Green-ish Knicks Tape 102-91. It was Wiz Point God John Wall dba Wall-Star going 360 lay ups and eleven helpers with 24 points and six boards. His partner in crime Bradley Beal added 17 points as Washington moves to 20-8.

As for the Knicks falling to 5-26 and Knicks Tape season ticket holders take away their Christmas as 'Melo Anthony led with a game-high 34 points and then what. There is nothing after 'Melo to talk about concerning the Knicks at this point.

PF Quincy Acy giving Wall-Star a 4th frame Flagrant almost through a Haymaker at Wall until cooler heads prevailed. Acy throws that punch he is with the Maine Red Claws on Monday with Wall-Star headed back to MSG for the 2015 NBA All-Star game that simple!  

LAKERS @ BULLS as the "WEST SIDE Story Report" goes CHRISTMAS DAY 2K14!...the LAKERS with KOBE and the slick NIKE Kobe 9 Elite Old St. NICK Edition vs SEE RED and D-ROSE, the "SEE RED Butler, the SPANIARD, JO All-Star, and the TAJ-manian Devil to name a few! #LALvsCHI #LakerNation #BullsNation #WestSideStoryReport #NBAonTNT

The Lakers played extremely well without Kobe and now they get Kobe back in the fold hopefully looking to be more of a facilitator than the "Shot Clock Killer"! They handled the Warriors at Staples 16 Chips Set Up and now they get to come out of the Motel on Christmas Night for a date with the Chicago Bulls starting to get hot!

The Bulls coming off beating the Wiz Kids D.C. is looking for the "W" more and more as they have their rotations down and a D-Rose getting more and more back to his M.V.P. Self! Bulls at 19-9 trying to separate from the pack needs not to play with Lake Show with Bulls Nation on one!

Lakers protect the Arc...

Lakers keep Bulls Nation on their fannies or it will be a night not to remember...

Lin Sanity, Swaggy P, and Carlos Boozer vs the Bulls Bench Mob namely Taj, Aaron Brooks, and Taj Gibson...

Bulls must match the Lakers youthfulness when they go "Snakes in the Grass" Package and that would be without Kobe...

Bulls will be riding a roller coaster and can the new Lake Show slow it down?

"Points in the Paint" with the Bulls having a huge advantage...

stay in Attack Mode as Jump Shooting Teams leads to too many run outs and leak outs for the opposition...

Turnovers vs Live Turnovers for TD's...Mo Builders and Mo Killers!

First things is first will @kdTREY5 of the Regulators Report OKC be a go on Christmas Day as OKC needs him in the fold ASAP! The Spurs running on as many bodies they can dress will be tested as both Tim Duncan and Manu Ginoboli have been playing major minutes.

Russell Westbrook has been playing out of his mind with KD not in the line up but is he shooting way too much? Spurs PG TP9 has been a steady hand a has his back up Cory Joseph who has looked real good in the 2014-15 season as he has figured out a few things!

OKC coming off a Tuesday 115-111 OT loss to Rip City as Russ goes for 40! The Spurs are coming off beating up the Clips on Monday 125-118.

#CavsNation (17-10) @ #HeatGang (13-16) 5pm ET

The LeBron game is back for the 1st time since he bolted as the Cavs trying to find themselves get real bad news. Starting Center Anderson Varejao goes down last game with a an Achilles injury and is done for 2014-15. That is huge on the offensive end but the defensive end the Cavs needed help anyway not taking shots at Anderson of Brasil.

The Heat falling a few notches back with King James and they knew they would take a hit needs to get Chris Bosh back. Wade County in Heat SG Dwayne Wade can no longer shoulder a frame by himself let alone 48 minutes. The Heat needs players like Luol Deng and Mario Chalmers to step up among others. This will be a really tough game as LeBron will be bringing his Christmas A-Game.

In the "Fight for George" the Seahawks looked rather impressive regardless of the fact that the Cardinals were playing their 3rd string QB as it's next man up...yeah right! The Packers and Cowboys though are real threats to the Hawks Throne as Green Bay lost in Week 1 and the Cowboys beat 12's in the 206!

TrailBLAZERS 115 THUNDER 111 F/OT...Who runs the NORTHWEST Division well for right now it's the "Only Game in Town" and BLAZER Mania!...TrailBLAZERS get a huge win in THUNDER ALLEY but not before LILLARD of THREE STRIPES Basketball and WESTBROOK of JORDAN Brand go "THRILLA in Chesapeake Energy Complex"..."REGULATORS Report OKC" DAME and RUSS go Show Time in OKC for all NBA Point Gods to see! #PORvsOKC #RiPCityBlazers #ThunderUp

The Portland Trailblazers knew this would be a test to see where they were at as far as the new "Beast in the Northwest" throwing Roses at the Thunder's Northwest Throne! In a game that was see saw affair the Blazers and Thunder traded leads as OKC led after one 26-19 only to trail, at the break 54-43.

That lead would balloon to thirteen as the Blazers led 60-47 only for the Thunder to go on a 26-13 run to end the 3rd and a tie ball game 73-73. OKC led most of the 4th and seemingly had the game in hand until Dame Lillard the new Beast of Adidas Hoops let this go at the towards the end of regulation (Video below) tying the game at 98-98!



The Blazers (moving to 23-7) in Extras went on to win 115-111 but not after Lillard goes for a team-high 40 points on a sizzling 8 for 12 from deep. L-Train Aldridge added 25 points and 9 boards with Bloodline Wes Matthews Jr. chipping in with 22.

OKC falls to 13-16 but not after Russell Westbrook goes for a team-high 40 points as well but on 16 for 34 from the field. Lillard gets his 40 on 21 shots...just saying! Reggie Jackson added 21 points and grabbed nine helpers.

Reigning NBA M.V.P. @kdTREY of Nike Basketball and the nasty KD 7 (Good Apples KD 7 is delicious) out again with that bad ankle.    

CLIPPERS 104 HAWKS 107 F...the HAWKS come back late in the 3rd and early 4th on the visiting CLIP JOINT and hit's the Winner's Circle behind former MIZZOU TIGERS Star Demarre Carroll..."LOGO WATCH" HAWKS Nation don't go to the Highlight Factory cheering for the VISITORS your Team is putting in work! #LACvsATL #CLIPPERnation #ATLHawksNation

The Los Angeles Clippers still have issues closing games as they blow a double-digit lead in the 3rd to an Atlanta Hawks Bunch that has won 13 of 14. The Clips for some odd reason could not stop Hawks athletic wing DeMarre Carroll who registered a game-high 25 points on 5 for 6 from the Arc.

The Clips hanging on to a 57-50 halftime lead opened up their biggest lead of the nigh 69-56 almost midway through the 3rd. The Hawks running on effort and a "never say quit approach" closed the frame on a 25-14 run behind Carroll's ten points in the quarter including back to back money balls.

The Hawks then start the 4th on a 9-0 run going up 90-83 as it wen nip and tuck down the stretch with Al Horford hitting two free throws for a 107-104 lead and Game Night w/Blake Griffin missing on a potential game-tying money ball as time expired.

Atlanta shot 12 for 23 from the arc with the Clips shooting 11 for 29. It was the Hawks +8 in makes from the foul line that was the advantage in this one being the aggressor especially in the 2nd half. Joining Carroll's 25 was Al Horford 20 points and Paul Milsap's 17 points, nine boards, and seven assists as that Hawks front line is the best kept secret in the Logo! Atlanta moves to an impressive 21-7 and they are for real!

The Clips get a team-high 21 points, eleven helpers, and eight boards from Jordan Brand's Blake and 15 points, twenty-two boards, and four blocks from DeAndre Jordan. CP3 added 19 points and seven assists as the Clips fall to 19-10.

With the Bulls up 86-79 midway through the 4th John Wall dba Wall-Star went on a patented 8-0 run doing his way with the ...Finger Roll leaving the score 87-86 Wizards!

Then it was Derrick Rose with the Adidas Basketball Banner in the back drop (with an NBA M.V.P. Trophy) with Jimmy Butler hitting two free throws putting See Red up 88-87 it was Rose with a 6-0 run himself having nothing with Wall-Star as anything you can do I can do better...."Boost"!

#RipCityBlazers (22-7) @ #RegulatorsReportOKC (13-15) 

Will @kdTREY5 play as he has been out the last few games and OKC has cooled off a bit. The Blazers have also cooled off as they are coming off getting hammered by the Rockets and that 44-piece from "Fear the Beard" #13 James Harden.

Russell Westbrook vs Damian Lillard where do you start as you have shifting gears for 48 and the other 0 to 100 real quick! The Thunder trying to close the gap in the Northwest chasing Rip City behind 8.5 games and this one is head to head!

#NewCLIPJoint (19-9) @ #HighlightFactory404 (20-7)

The Clippers just 8-6 out of the Motel is on the 2nd leg of a back to back motel swing as the Spurs Family beat them last night. The Clips lost but it was giving up 125 points and for a Doc Rivers coached team even though they are in the west that is way too many points.

The Hawks are playing lights out winners of 13 of their last 14 and doing some of the damage without PG Jeff Teague. Enter 2013 1st rounder Dennis Schroeder from Germany putting in major work as he comes off giving Rondo and the Mavs a career-high 22 points last night in the AA 214. Hawks are much-improved and Blake vs Big Al Horford is delicious!


#MavsNation (20-9) @ #PHXhoops (15-14) 

The Mavs grabbed "Double R" Rajon Rondo for nights like this except he will need help covering the trio of the "Dragon" Goran Dragic, the "Birmingham Baron" Eric Bledsoe, and Isaiah Thomas from Tacoma WA. Devin Harris and J.J. Barea should be a factor in this one as the Mavs are coming off a loss last night to the Hawks. The Suns beat the Wiz on Sunday Night with Bledsoe and Dragic leading the charge.

The Mavs must match that athletic front line of the Suns with former Suns 1st rounder from "Fear the Turtle" in Alex Len coming on. Tyson Chandler will be "Big" in this one as will Dirk on the glass as Dallas needs to keep the Suns off the window!

Yes the Chicago Bulls on the 2nd leg of a back to back Home/Motel Swing gets the Southeast division 2nd place by a 1/2 a game Washington Wizards playing at an all-time high. The Bulls are coming off of a 129-120 "W" last night at the Madhouse vs the Dinosaurs as D-Rose and the "See Red Butler" Jimmy Butler went straight blacktop on the #WeTheNorth!

Now the Bulls get a different animal and that animal starts and ends with All-Star Point God  John Wall the Sole Proprietor of Walls Wings and Burgers dba Wall-Star for Three Stripes Scooby Doos. He also has his partner in crime Bradley Beal who was quoted as saying Chicago-Style Pizza is the worst and there is better pies out there and Beal watch yourself Lake Michigan has plenty of room...Lol!

BRONCOS 28 BENGALS 37 F..."MANNING MILE High" throws a PICK 6 after the "STRAWBERRY Rifle" started the Night with a PICK 6 and that is "WHO DEY Wild" in the "JUNGLE on the OHIO"!...BENGALS win setting up Sunday "DATE NIGHT" with the "MEN of STEEL" for the AFC North!...NFL Week 16 "Monday Night Football" Recap in "A QB Driven League" talking BENGALS headed to HEINZ for Week 17! #DENvsCIN #UnitedInOrange #WhoDeyNation #MNF

The last Monday Night Football for the 2014 season didn't disappoint as it was filled with everything but the winner getting a Trophy at the end. Bengals QB Andy "Strawberry Rifle" Dalton started the night throwing a Pick 6 to Broncos CB Aqib Talib and Who Dey Nation and NFL Heads knowing Dalton I knew what you were thinking as here we go again running away from the big game.

On the Bengals ensuing possession it was RB Jeremy Hill who saved the Bengals Night and Dalton's scampering for a 85-yd TD Run tying the score up at 7-7. Who Dey took Uncle Mo (Momentum) into the 2nd with a TD and two FG's going into the break up 20-7 after Broncos PK Connor Barth missed a 49-yard FG.

In the 3rd the Bengals had to know Manning Mile High was going to get on track sooner rather than later  As RB CJ Anderson capped a three play 21 yard drive after a 77 yard return making it 20-14 Bengals.

Who Dey came right back on n Adam Jones 73 yard return as the Bengals cap a three play 27 yard drive with a Giovani Bernard 22-yard TD pass from Dalton putting the Bengals up 27-14. This is when the Broncos Fireworks started as the Broncos drove for 9 plays and 79 yards and 8 plays and 91 yards for two TD's by Emmanuel "Go Go" Sanders making it 28-27 United in Orange just like that!

Mike Nugent put the Bengals up 30-28 on a 23-yard chip shot and then Manning doing what he sometimes does makes that throw he will be analyzing on Christmas Day 2K14. Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick (No not the Bengals former 1st Round Pick...yes him) picks Manning Mile High off for the game-sealing Pick 6 with the final score 37-28 Bengals.

The Bengals now get a flex game vs the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night at 8:30pm ET as both teams have already clinched playoff slots. This one is for the AFC North Title.

The Broncos have clinched the AFC West as they get the Silver and Black in Week 17 needing to win to keep that #2 overall AFC seed.

"Fight for Lamar" Drama is on theeeeeee way in Week 17....with Roger all wet inside!

TrailBLAZERS 95 ROCKETS 110 F...NIKE Basketball's "FEAR the BEARD" #13 @JHarden13 gives RIP City the #REDNation MONDAY Special a 44-Piece with 4 SIDES and those 4 Sides were Spalding MONEY BALLS!..."LOGO WATCH" chilling with the NIKE ZOOM Crusader wearing JAMES HARDEN! #PORvsHOU #BLAZERMania #ClutchCity @NikeBasketball

Christmas is the season for giving and the Rip City Blazers knew James Harden alias "Fear the Beard" #13 of Nike Basketball was trying to give them something Santa and Mrs. Claus had nothing to do with. Harden had 19 of his game-high 44 points in the 1st frame slicing and dicing his way to the rim like a "Slinky" moving down on the Stairs!

The Rockets simply blew the roof off the Toyota Center making it Drop Top 2015 Corolla with all the Extras including a "Fear the Beard" Kit in the Driver's Seat as Red Nation led 73-52 at the break. Harden 44 points came on 14 for 26 from the field and 4 for 9 from Sugarland, Texas. "Dwight Howard added 16 points and thirteen boards.

The Blazers having better days takes that 44-piece from Harden as Damian Lillard had 13 points and 2013 top Rip City pick C.J. McCollum added 17. Blazers need a practice on Tuesday with no Spalding Oranges with those 22 turnovers coming out of the motel and that is unacceptable from a team that is leading the Northwest at 22-7 as we go to press.

The Rockets move to 20-7 as they must keep winning playing in the best division in the Logo the Southwest...


RAPTORS 120 BULLS 129 F...SEE RED's Back Court D-ROSE of Three Stripes Scooby Doos "BOOST" and the "SEE RED Butler" wearing J's gives the DINOSAURS "Another MANIC Monday" Business..."WEST SIDE Story Report" going straight BLACK TOP and Shirts & Skins with Da BULLS! #TORvsCHI #RaptorsNation #BullsDateNight

The Toronto Raptors and PG Kyle Lowry was going straight at the Bulls and attacking both Bulls starting guards in Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler then the Bulls took another angle. See Red erupted for a 49-point 4th after the Dinosaurs left the 3rd frame up 83-80.

It was Derrick Rose getting 15 of his 29 points in the 4th and Jimmy Butler adding seven of his 27 points as the Bulls runaway from the Raptors late 129-120. Raptors Point God Kyle Lowry (Got real NBA Game) had a game-high 34 points (4-8 3pt FG) testing out Rose's Defense at every corner.

It was the Bulls getting to the line some 47 times and shooting an amazing 43 of 47 that won them the game. Butler, Pau Gasol, Nikola Mirotic, and Aaron Brooks combined to go 32 for 33 from the stripe.

Raptors "Big" Jonas Valanciunas from Lithuania added 20 points and nine boards after giving both Jo and Pau 16 points and six boards before replenishment at the break. Brooks and Mirotic continue to be a huge factor for See Red off the bench with a combined 29 points. The Raptors missed nine form the stripe but shot 32 times.

Bulls move to 18-9 with the Raptors falling to 22-7...with a 9 game lead in the Atlantic Division!

See Red gets the Wiz Kids D.C. in the Nations Capital on the 2nd leg of a Home/Motel Swing on Tuesday December 23!
