76ERS 85 HAWKS 91 F...The HIGHLIGHT Factory 404 uses PHILIPS Arena and a MOTEL near your favorite NBA Team to go 17-0 in January and take that NBA East Haters!...Watchout 1995-96 BULLS who went 72-10 here comes the new HIGHLIGHT Factory 404!..."LOGO WATCH" going Pre Big Bowl 49 watching the HAWKS of the "404" take the LOGO by Storm! #PHIvsATL #SeventySixers #ATLHawks

Look a solid month in the Logo is winning at a + .700 clip and that would be 7 of 10 or 14 of 20. The Atlanta Hawks skate through the first month of 2015 like an AAU Powerhouse on the Nike EYBL AAU Circuit at a .100 clip and a robust 17-0.

The latest victim or shall I say victim #17 of January was a feisty Philly Squad with nothing to lose now but more Lottery Balls for the 2015 NBA Draft. Atlanta was up 49-34 at the break only to see the Sixers cut that lead to five at the end of the 3rd. It was too much All-Star Big Al Horford (23 pts 11 rebs) along with his fellow 2015 All-Star Teammates Jeff Teague (10 pts 7 asst) and Paul Milsap (15 pts 8 rebs) as the Sixers just do not have enough talent to reach those heights.

Philly rode a balanced attack with six players in double figures including 13 points from a trip of players in Jerami Grant, M.C.W., and Luc Mbah a Moute. The Sixers shot 38% from the field but 14 made money balls kept them afloat.

The Hawks on a 19-game in streak moves to 40-8 and can they get to that 1995-96 Bulls Squad that went 72-10 as they would have to go 32-4 in their last 36. Philly drops 10-38 as you cant' win the 2015 NBA Draft Lottery...if you don't lose"!  

BULLS 93 SUNS 99 F...The WEST SIDE Story Report" stumbles in the "VALLEY of the SUNS" as the "BIRMINGHAM Baron" BLEDSOE, Slovenia's the "DRAGON" DRAGIC, and Philly's MORRIS Twins dominate!...BULLS need to hit the "AUTO BODY" Shop on the West SIde as the "CHECK ENGINE" Light is BULLS Red! #CHIvsPHX #BULLSnation #PHXhoops #WestSideStoryReport

The Chicago Bulls knew exactly what they would be up against on the 2nd leg of a back to back coming out of the motel. That double-overtime Lakers Loss was huge knowing their would get a well-rested Suns Bunch running on the "Three Amigos" in Suns guards Eric Bledsoe, Goran Dragic, and Isaiah Thomas.

Bulls fell behind early and was down 55-42 at the break. The legs and were no there as it appeared all the Bulls shots were falling short. Then the Bulls also missed seven free throws in the 1st half and that would for sure comeback to haunt them as they came 3rd in the Logo as a team shooting at a 82% clip.

The Bulls though tied the game with a furious run in the 3rd frame as the Suns led 68-67 at the end of the 3rd. See Red then battled all 4th frame only to come up short 99-93. It was a combo of missed free throws and getting beta up on the defensive glass. Phoenix had some huge offensive boards and put backs late to kill the Bulls hopes of stealing this one.

D-Rose led the Bulls with 23 points on 8 for 23 from the field. Jimmy Butler added 22 points and seven boards with Aaron Brooks adding 21 points. Too much guard play for the Bulls as they didn't play "Big" again running through Jo and Pau on offense.

Bledsoe led Phoenix with 23 points and six helpers and Dragic added 21 points with the Morris Twins combining for 24 points and nineteen boards.

Bulls now will get the Houston Rockets on "Hump Day" February 4th and 8pm ET as the six-game road trip might take a turn in Vegas for the rest of the weekend or stay in Phoenix for Super Bowl Sunday!

Note: Bulls 1-2 on six-game Motel Swing as they have Clutch City, NOLA, and Mouse Town left on the itinerary!    


   

BLACKHAWKS 4 DUCKS 1 F...The "BISON City MULLET" #88 strikes "On ANAHEIM Pond"..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison as the INDIAN HEAD escapes L.A. at 1-1 playing in the MADHOUSE of Orange County California! #CHIvsANA #FearTheINDIANHead #MightyDucks #FrozenTalkHawks

The Blackhawks get right right back to business against the #1 Team in Ice Games 2014-15 as they take down the Mighty Ducks "On Anaheim Pond" 4-1. If you didn't adjust your set the game was played in Anaheim which looked and sounded like the Hawks had a Home Game in the "Madhouse on Madison".

The Indian Head dominated from the onset as Captain Serious #19 got things started off a nifty set-up from #88 to make it 1-0 Hawks. For those reading and its your fist read at Bluedude Sportstalk that was Jonathan Toews with the score assisted by Patrick Kane.

That first frame score was followed up by a D.K. Goal in the 2nd making it 2-0 and a Patrick Kane dba "Bison City Mullet" "Lighting the Lamp" making it 3-0 Hawks at the end of two. The Ducks finally got on the scoreboard in the 3rd over the midway point with a goal by Rickard Rickell making it 3-1 Hawks.

The Indian finished it off with Kane getting his 2nd of the night and rolling the credits on the Ducks 4-1. Hawks played sound defensively and got back to some good habits handling the "Frozen One" in their end. Hawks out shoot the Ducks 33-22 but was 0-3 on the power play.

Hawks net minder Corey Crawford halted 21 of 22 SOG moving his 2014-15 W-L to 19-11-2. Ducks "Blue Paint Tenant" Frederik Anderson falls to 27-7-5 as he halted 29 of 33 SOG.

The Indian Head gets Team Teal in San Jose on Saturday Night at 9pm CT as the Hawks move to 31-16-2 with 64 points. Ducks fall to 32-12-6 with 70 pts.

BULLS 118 LAKERS 123 F 2OT...The "WEST SIDE Story Report" ruins the WARRIORS Victory by losing to the LAKERS!...D-ROSE you don't have to make the Game-Winning Shot but the Game-Winning Play!...#CHIvsLAL #BullsNation #LakerNation #WestSideStoryReport

I am at a loss of words as this Bulls Loss should take you inside of what is really going on in the 2014-15 Bulls Roster and Coaching staff. The Bulls just got beat by a Lakers Team that simply outplayed them. Then in Extras the Bulls beat themselves which is a microcosm of what is going in with Coach Thibs and GM Gar Forman and Prez John Paxson and that "Misery loves Company" has trickled down to the Bulls Hardwood!

The Bulls come from the "NBA On TNT" Thursday Dead to tie the game at 98. Only to lose the game 123-118 in double overtime as it was very visible on a few trips on the offensive end. Bulls Guard Derrick Rose (17 pts on 7 of 26 FG) is going up against 2014-15 Bulls All-Stars Pau Gasol (20 pts 10 rebs 6 asst) and Jimmy Butler (35 pts 7 rebs on 9 of 17 FG 16-18 FT). The Bulls pecking order is all wrong and they must fix it moving forward.

Meanwhile Jordan Hill (26 pts 12 rebs) and SG Wayne Ellington (23 pts) paced the Lakers snapping a 9-game losing streak. Lakers move to 13-34 while the Bulls fall to 30-18...

The L.A. Lakers have lost 9 game sin a row and they just need to concentrate on the here and now and take care of business on this night.

"FIGHT for VINCE" #49..."GRONK" & EDELMAN & LaFELL & AMENDOLA vs BALDWIN & KEARSE & WILSON...Wideouts and Tight Ends Business who has the edge in Big BOWL 49? #NEvsSEA #SuperBowl49 #Fight4Vince #BigBowl49

Yes the one who is getting all the praise right now is Patriots Tight End Rob "Gronk" Gronkowski and deservedly so. Now the Pats after that are solid but that group won't scare because it's not about who is catching the Wilson Pigskin but who is throwing it.

As fare as the Seahawks Group they are professional football players with jobs that are highly-coveted. So to go out on a limb and say who are they is hog wash and this group is more than capable of carrying the Seahawks in Big Bowl 49. The Passing Game Details for Big Bowl 49...

#PatsNation WR/TE Corps vs #HawksNest206 WR/TE Corps 

#BostonPats "Fight for Lamar" Numbers (2 Gms)

WR Edelman 17 Grabs 172 Yds 86 Yds/G
TE "Gronk" 10 Grabs 136 Yds 68 Yds/G 2 TD
WR LaFell 9 Grabs 90 Yds 45 Yds/G TD
WR Amendola 6 Grabs 89 Yds 44.5 Yds/G 2 TD

Pats QB Tom Terrific likes his group as he has something for every situation the 9 route, working the middle of the field (Hash Marks), the boundary, moving the sticks, the intermediate, and then short passing game for blitz packages.

TE "Gronk" is the top Red Zone Threat then after that it's Jack-Of-All-Trades Julian Edelman doing what he does as he is a mix of both Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola. The Seahawks will probably use "Bam Bam Cam" Chancellor on "Gronk" leaving Earl Thomas to play that deep 1/3 to take away anything deep. LaFell, Amendola, and Edelman must win their one on ones as that passing game will be predicated on how the Pats RB's can get off with that run game.

WHat will the Pats Passing Game do versus the highly-touted and one and only "L.O.B." the Legion Of Boom from the "206"?

#12thManSpaceNeedle "Fight for George" Numbers (2 Gms)

WR Baldwin 9 Grabs 144 Yds 72 Yds/G TD
TE Wilson 6 Grabs 79 Yds 39.5 Yds/G TD
WR Kearse 4 Grabs 164 Yds 82 Yds/G 2 TD
RB "Beast Mode" 4 Grabs 32 Yds 8 Yds/G

The Seahawks Passing game is better than most think as Doug Baldwin makes them go. Do not underestimate TE Luke Wilson as he is more than capable of making plays down the middle of the field. Can Russell Wilson get the Pig to all his Targets as the packers and D-Coordinator Dom Capers had him in the Blender of Puree for most of the NFC Championship Game dba "Fight for George"?

Jermaine Kearse just looking at his numbers tells you that he along with Baldwin is a home run threat for the 12's. He is the one player that an take the top off the Pats Secondary and they need to be mindful of that. Revis Island and Brandon Browner will be up for the occasion.

Luke Wilson is some kind of athlete as he signed with the Toronto Blue Jays but decided to play Football. He is ultra-athletic and he might be "Problem" the Pats didn't account for on Sunday.  

It's going to come down like that Pats Passing Game what the Seahawks Run Game is going to and it all starts with Marshawn Lynch. He might be a huge factor in the short passing game...

Who has the edge in  WR's? I think it's even as they both are capable groups...

Who has then edge at TE? Of course "Gronk" but be careful Pats Mr. Wilson is Hope Solo's Squeeze Jerramy Stevens...and that's cutting right to the chase!

Overall the edge goes to the Boston Patriots because of that Mr. Tear Da Club Up..."Gronk"...or the Opposing Secondary!

     

BLACKHAWKS 3 KINGS 4 F...I don't want to hear down the NHL's "YELLOW BRICK ROAD" in APRIL 2015 that this game in late January 2015 got the "MONARCHS" back on LORD STANLEY'S Track!..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison the INDIAN HEAD let's one slip in STAPLES Monarchs Set-Up! #CHIvsLAK #FearTheINDIANHead #KingsOnIce #FrozenTalkHawks

The Chicago Blackhawks wanted to start this trip on the right foot and the 2nd half as they had the defending Stanley Cup Champion L.A. Kings in their way on "Hump Day". The Hawks didn't disappoint but didn't get any points as the Monarchs struggling to find themselves before the break just needed to see the Indian Head to get things crackin' apparently!

It was not even two minutes into the game with half of Kings Nation still on the 405 when the "Bison City Mullet" #88 Patrick Kane "Lit the Lamp" for his 23rd goal on the season making it 1-0 Indian Head. The Monarchs came right back with the "Blackhawks Killer" Jeff Carter striking before the midway point to tie things up at 1-1. Three minute after that it was Hawks Patrick Sharp giving the Hawks a 2-1 lead at the end of the one.

That lead lasted just a little over a minute and a half into frame two when the Kings capitalize on a power play tying the game at 2-2 as "Granny there goes that man" Mr. Carter for his 2nd on the night. The Hawks couldn't get a A.P.B. on that #77 all night long!  That as the only goal in frame two leaving it tied at 2-2 heading into the 3rd.

The Indian Head again starting the period fast and furious scored on an Andrew Shawn goal giving the Indian Head a 3-2 lead. The way the game was going the Hawks needed an Insurance Goal and instead it was Kings Tyler Toffoli with just under seven minutes remaining tying the game up at 3-3. Then in crunch time with under four minutes remaining it was Jake Muzzin sending Monarchs Nation into a frenzy as he gets the game-winner from who else Anze Kopitar and the Hawks let one get away.    

Hawks Corey Crawford stopped 23 of 27 SOG with Jonathan Quick stopping 26 of 29 Hawks SOG. Yes the Monarchs were more physical but the Hawks Game is skill and skating and beating you with team speed as the Monarchs just had the frozen one bounce their way.

The Hawks fall to 30-16-2 with 62 points while the Monarchs move to 21-15-12 and 54 points. I have this feeling with this game feeling like the "Fight for Lord Stanley" was on the line these two will be seeing each other in the near future....stay tuned!

THUNDER 92 KNICKS 100 F...No you didn't "REGULATORS Report OKC"!...THUNDER goes down at WORLD's MOST FAMOUS despite RUSS of JORDAN Brand going for 40 as KNICKS 8 TRACK is getting some steam before the All-Star Break! #OKCvsNYK #ThunderNation #KnicksNation #WorldsMostFamousMSG

I don't know what the New York Knicks lead man D-Fish has been telling the troops of late but whatever it is its working. The Knicks behind a team-high 31 points from the "Bully" of Jordan Brand and La La's Squeeze 'Melo Anthony as Team Spike Lee beats the Regulators Report OKC 100-92 with all hands on deck!

The Knicks down just 45-43 at the break led 68-67 despite 16 points from OKC PG Russell Westbrook at the half and 'Melo Anthony leading the N.Y.C. with a Times Square Dozen.  With OKC leading 71-70 just a minute and some change into the 4th the Knicks went on a run and OKC didn't recover.

Knicks go on a 11-3 run the next four minutes and led 82-73 midway through the 4th. Then Regulators got right back into it as Westbrook went on a 7-0 run the next minute to cut the lead to 82-80 Knicks. New York answered Westbrook's run with a 10-0 run to lead 92-80 and that was your ball game as Knicks 8 Track wins 100-92 as former Duke PF Lance Thomas added 17 points for the Knicks with former St. Joseph Redhawk Langston Galloway chipping in with 18.

Westbrook goes for 40 points on 13 for 30 shooting for him and KD...What (Russell Westbrook Face)! Serge Ibaka went double-double with 10 points and ten boards as Reggie Jackson added 13 points grabbing seven boards. OKC without @kdTREY5 with a hurt Toe falls to 23-23 as they shoot under 23% from the arc.

Knicks move to 9-37 as they have won their last four out of five... slow your roll Knicks Nation!


TrailBLAZERS 94 CAVALIERS 99 F...Who needs KING JAMES when Believeland's Favorite UNCLE goes DOUBLE-NICKEL on RIP City canceling BLAZER Mania!..."LOGO WATCH" Hump Day Business as KYRIE IRVING dba Uncle DREW drops 55 in the "Q"! #PORvsCLE #BlazerMania #CavsNation #TeamUNCLEdrew

The Portland Trailblazers had to be thinking with no King James playing in this one it is still going to be tough to beat C-Town winning their last seven. They still have All-Star Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love to go with some nice pieces in Russian Timofey Mozgov, J.R.Smith, and Tristan Thompson among others.

Low and behold Kyrie knew LeBron wasn't playing either and told his guys the old NBA Adage when a key man is down, " I got to stay Aggressive with my approach"! After 48 minutes and a 99-94 Cavs "W" Kyrie Irving wearing that hot new Kyrie 1 P.E. from Nike Basketball explodes for a Double-Nickel on the Cavs with no Spike Lee near the premises.

"Uncle Drew" as he is known on his Pepsi Max Commercials damage on the night:

38:35 mins 55 pts (17-36 FG) (11-19 3pt FG) 10-10 FT 5 asst 3 TO




What's most impressive was the 11 Money Balls on nineteen attempts from the Cleveland Suburbs. Not to be overshadowed was Rip City's "L-Train" LaMarcus Aldridge pouring in 38 points and grabbing eleven boards.

It came down to with the score 94-94 Kyrie with the ball dribbling right towards the arc free throw line extended rising up for a 25 foot Money Ball for the game-winner as Blazers SF Nicolas Batum defending Kyrie was backing up not trying to run Kyrie off the arc.

The Blazers fall to 32-14 while the Cavs move to 27-20 and "Believeland" might just run the table and finish 62-20...

"FIGHT for VINCE" #49..."BEAST MODE" vs the "GILLETTE R.V."...and where do you want it?...A-GAP, Bounce to the BOUNDARY, Screen/Short PASSING Game, BLITZ Pick up...who has the edge at RB? #NEvsSEA #SuperBowl49 #BigBowl49 #Fight4Vince49

Super Bowl 49 QB's Russell Wilson and Tom Brady both have immediate help in their teams run game. Both also know it is imperative to get these guys off and if the run game is right the passing game will take flight you Dr. Seuss Mother Goose NFL Head.

For the Seahawks they have Marshawn Lynch dba Beast Mode aka Mr. Velvet Ropes and his yards after the 1st hit should be wearing a Yellow Jacket for Canton. Then there is Legarrette Blount dba the Gillette R.V. and he also is just getting started after the 1st contact and bot will be raring to to go in this one.

Blount is a punisher and he runs angry which makes that 1st tackler always miss and most likely the 2nd and 3rd grapplers. If that Pats O-Line is right he will get some opportunities to make huge gains vs that Seahawks Run "D".

We must note the other Pats RB's like Shane Vereen and Jonas Gray are capable as Vereen is the choice on passing downs as Blount is a non-factor is the passing game. Excellent feet and quickness for a big man and runs similar to his counterpart in Big Bowl 49 Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch is dynamic and his ability to break off would be tacklers is a science. A punishing runner who never strays away from the contact will be running between tackles and there is no secret in that. Pats would be defenders must put multiple hats on Lynch at 1st contact or it will be a long evening.

The Seahawks rarely use Lynch in the short passing game but he is more than capable and dynamic in space as well . Any RB who is known for long TD runs known as the "Earthquake 1" and the "Earthquake 2" lookout. Also look for Lynch's back up RB and Russell Wilson's Big Bowl 49 Room Dawg Robert Turbin as he is a change of pace back small but extremely explosive and strong.

Who has the Edge? "BEAST MODE" all day long and if the Hawks get up on the Pats they will run Marshawn until there is no more Skittles in the Phoenix Metro Area...

BULLS 113 WARRIORS 111 F/OT..."SPLASH BROTHERS" Ok!...BULLS did all the SPLASHING late giving DUBS All Day it's 2nd loss at home in 23 Home Games as SEE RED goes "Fight for LARRY" Mid-JUNE 2015 following the ADIzero "BOOST Hero D-ROSE and NIKE Basketball's PAU PAU PAU!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" with the BULLS trying to win all 6 on the Motel Swing! #CHIvsGSW #BullsNation #DubNation #WestSideStoryReport

After all that 4th frame turbulence and an extra period of five minutes the Seat Belt Sign was lifted as the Bulls were free to leave Planet Oracle with a 113-111 "W" and that's exactly what they needed to maybe get back on track and grab one of those top 2 seeds in the east.

It was D-Rose the ADIzero "Boost" Hero with a game-high 30 points and seven boards but it was flawed. Rose also took 33 shots and committed 11 turnovers but forget the numbers as the Bulls needed Rose to be Derrick Rose of old and he is getting real close as he sis hit the game-winner in extras.

The Bulls "Bigs" of All-Star Pau Gasol (18 pts 16 rebs 8 asst 3 blks) and Jo Noah (18 pts 15 rebs 6 asst) dominated and See Red might have found a way to play the rest of the 82-game trek going through them as G.S.W. could not slow them down.

The Warriors get 30 points from Klay Thompson as he also grabbed ten boards on 27 shots. Steph Curry added 21 points and nine helpers with David Lee off the bench rounding into All-Star Form with 24 points, nine boards and six assists. All five starters for Golden Stat were in double figures.

If both teams could play another one after looking at the tape they wouldn't settle for all them Jump Shots which in the end bails the "D" out when you miss them and leads to run outs and leak outs.

Bulls move to 30-17 while the Warriors fall to 36-7...Bulls now move onto L.A. playing against the Lakers on Thursday Night NBA on TNT...what a way to start of the trip for the "West Side Story Report"!

360 Degrees...Blackhawks are in L.A. awaiting to start their 2nd half vs the Kings as they play tonight at Staples with the Bulls coming in on Thursday!

CAVALIERS 103 PISTONS 95 F...KYRIE and LeBRON starring in "CAPE CRUSADERS stick up the PALACE of Auburn Hills" as #BELIEVELAND > #DeeeeeetroitBasketball on this night!..."LOGO WATCH" on a slow Tuesday as the CAVS get to 7 W's in a row as DETROIT is reeling with no JENNINGS! #CLEvsDET #CavsNation #PistonsGang

The Cleveland cavaliers have found their identity well somewhat of an identity on how to play in 2014-15. Let Uncle Drew and King James do their "Thing" and everyone else including former All-Star the "Lake Oswego Monster" back to Kevin Love and others fall in line.

The Cavs dynamic duo starring in the "Cape Crusaders stick up the Palace of Auburn Hills" went straight Summer Workout on that Pistons "D". Kyrie goes for a game-high 38 on 23 shots but 6 for 10 from the "Joe" and that would be Downtown Motor City at Joe Louis Arena home of "Hockey Town USA" and the Red Wings.  It's Kyrie has that handle and can get wherever he wants to when he wants to.

James added 32 points on 24 shots while grabbing seven boards and getting six helpers. Kevin Love playing "Crumb Snatcher" chips in with 7 points and eight boards as "Believeland" shoots 94% from the stripe.

The Pistons down 47-39 at the break go to within six points with under 30 seconds to go but just ran out of time. Six Pistons were in double figures led by PG D.J. Augustin's 19 points and nine helpers. Greg Monroe (17 pts 12 rebs) and Andre Drummond (12 pts 17 rebs 6 blks) did what they do but it was too much Kyrie and LeBron in the end. Pistons you let Monroe walk or trade him your dunzo...yes!

Cavs run to 26-20 while the Pistons fall 17-29 cooling off considerably...

I know what your thinking Logo Heads where is the likes of King James and some of those "Vets" who can really sky. It's simple Operation "Protect your Brand" as the new NBA Players are more interested in what if I lose will I lose endorsements or popularity and don't tell me the injury factor.

Moving forward and interesting field of Logo Newborns who carry Nerf-Rims in the Back-Pack, in their Lockers, in the Man Caves where they reside, and more importantly attack the rim with reckless abandon.

The background is the Seattle, Washington Metroplex and for those who know nothing about 206 Hoops you need to get a Clue and "Bring back the Sonics"! LaVine is my "Fav" as when he jumps it looks like it is off a Trampoline and he is a fast break or steal away from in a game from going Booooooooooom! Checkout the Video below from the famous Jamal Crawford Summer League in Seattle the "206":



GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO #FearTheDeer @G_ante34

You would have through they way he plays and his build he was related to Achilles. The "Greek Freak" might bring down the house and he also has some Larry Nance in him with a side of Sam Perkins the Big Smooth talking length. He might grab that trophy for all of Greece!



BULLS @ WARRIORS in the "WEST SIDE Story Report" Game #1 of six straight out of the MOTEL!...Can the BULLS beat the #1 Outfit in the "LOGO" to date in the Golden State WARRIORS on WARRIORS Ground in Planet ORACLE? #CHIvsGSW #BullsNation #DubsAllDay #WestSideStoryReport #BullsBenchMob #SplashBrothers

Delicious Match Up

D-Rose/See Red Butler vs "Splash Brothers"

PLAYBOOK

Bulls must control the "Pace"...keep Dub Nation on their fannies

Warriors must keep D-Rose out of the painted-area and move Steph off of him to save the "Human Torch" on the offensive end...

Can the Bulls match up with the Warriors relatively small front line with the versatile Barnes and Green as lead man Steve Kerr has been playing "Nellie Ball" all season long and it has worked with smashing success?  

Dubs must slow down Pau Pau Pau and keep his offensive numbers from the damaging type....

Bulls Bench Mob vs Warriors Reinforcements named Shaun, "Iggy" of Planet Oracle, and Mo of Warriors Ground to name a few...who wins?

Bulls must play "Big" in the paint with solid results to force Kerr's Hand in matching up with See Red or trying to in the painted-area...

the Money Ball Racks as the Bulls must challenge all 23'9" (run everything off the arc) looks and See Red must knock some down as well...the Transition Money Ball is Planet Oracles Fav...limit those Bulls or you will take "L" #18!

Warriors 21-1 on Warriors Ground as they run on the "Splash Brothers' can See red not stop them but force them into a bad shooting night?

Bulls must minimize their Turnovers and if the turn it over no "LIVE" turnovers for TD's...


"FIGHT for VINCE" #49 TOM vs RUSS in "A QB Driven League"...Comparing the Sunday SIGNAL-CALLERS in Big Bowl 49 in PATS TOM Terrific vs 12's @dangeRUSSwilson who has the edge if any in the Big One? #NEvsSEA #SuperBowl49 #BigBowl49 #Fight4Vince49

The Bluedude and Bluedude Sportstalk starts their Big Bowl 49 Coverage powered by checkout my EBay Store harr.a9 and all made for a Sports Collectors and McFarlane Sports Pick Collectors Dream.

As for the game we will start the Breakdown for the "Fight for Vince" #49 comparing the Signal-Callers in this one. You have Tom Brady making his 7th appearance in the Super Bowl and one of the best ever in the "Shield" vs the young "I have arrived" Russell Wilson who dominates all the elite QB's when he sees them.

It's all about the QB as we discuss the strength and weaknesses for both heading into "Fight for Vince" #49.

#PatsTalk Tom Brady #12 dba TOM Terrific of Foxboro

2014 16-Game Trek Numbers: 

16 Gms 4,109 yds 373/582 Comp/Att 64.1 % 33 TD 9 INT 97.4 QB Rating

2014 "Fight for Lamar" Numbers:

2 Gms 593 yds 56/85 Comp/Att 65.9% 6 TD 2 INT 99.8 QB Rating

Brady has benefited from a stout running game led by Legarrette Blount. He also has the best Red Zone TE in the game in Rob "Gronk" Gronkowski. He managed to dodge the Purple Browns twice in the Divisional down by 14 points to win. And they dominated the "Blue Swagger" Colts with Tom throwing Semi-Empty Wilson Pigskins for whatever its worth.

Brady is a master at taking what the "D" gives him and when he is off his game the pressure like most is up the middle. Both Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman are nasty in the slot with "Gronk" running between the seams working the middle of the gridiron if they have mismatches and 99.9% of the time the match up is in Gronk's favor.

Tom Terrific's  Top 5 Targets (in order):

1. "Gronk" middle of the field/#1 Red Zone Target
2. Edelman moving the chains and intermediate routes n YAC
3. Brandon LaFell go routes (9 routes) deep ins and outs
4. Shane Vereen his #1 Route the Wheel Route YAC
5. Amendola yard sticks and YAC  

#HawksNest206 Russell Wilson #3 dba @dangeRUSSwilson  

2014 16-Game Trek Numbers: 

16 Gms 3,475 yds 285/452 Comp/Att 63.1% 20 TD 7 INT 95% QB Rating

Numbers w/Feet 16 Gms 118 Att 849 yds 53.1 Yds/G 6 TD

2014 "Fight for George" Numbers  

2 Gms 477 yds 29/51 Comp/Att 56.9% 4 TD 4 INT 81.9 QB Rating

Numbers w/Feet 2 Gms 14 Att 47 Yds 23.5 Yds/G 1 TD

Wilson is a real treat in the pocket as the Packers and D-Coordinator Dom Capers had a masterful plan of keeping him in the pocket. Now you need a Bloodline-like Backer like Clay Matthews Jr. to spy him or someone who is smart enough to play the game with him.

Where he is most dangerous is when RB Marshawn Lynch dba Beast Mode (on the Field) and Mr. "Velvet Ropes" (off the Field parking his 2014 Pearl White Lamborghini Aventador) is wreaking havoc in and around the A-Gap. The Pats must take away Lynch and force Wilson to go to targets like WR Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse along with TE Luke Wilson.

When it is all going it's his feet and that spread-option attack that tears defenses apart. Wilson was off his game in the "Fight for George" Championship Game but kept his composure enough to steal one from the "Pack" which speaks volumes of how he is wired and that is like very few. He is a gamer and when he is right throws a nice Wilson take an Instagram-like Pigskin.

@dangeRUSSwilson Top 4 Targets (in order):

1. Mr. Baldwin Intermediate, crossing routes (over the middle) and boundary YAC
2. Luke Wilson underrated working the middle
3. Kearse go routes and deep seams as the skinny-post is his "Squeeze"
4. "Beast Mode" screen game and YAC after 1st contact off the charts
 
The EDGE: Tom Terrific but not by much as Wilson goes Turkey Day Feast when he says the great ones like Tom, A-Rog, and Drew

MAGIC 94 GRIZZLIES 103 F...GRIT & GRIND Memphis rides Z-BO and All-Star GASOL to overpower the Mouse Town MAGIC!..."LOGO WATCH" on "Another MANIC Monday" or Big BOWL 49 Week Monday as GRIZZ moves to 32-12 and there is no BUMP & GRIND in those numbers! #ORLvsMEM #OMagic #GritGrind #MEMGrizz

The Memphis Grizzlies in a tight Western Conference Race is right in the ball park with the Golden State Warriors. The Grizz used a big 2nd frame after leading after the first frame 34-29 to push the halftime lead to 67-48. That was all they needed versus the youthful Orlando Magic as they win 103-94 and it wasn't that close!

That 33-19 second frame push was led by the Grizz Bench as Grizz back up PG Beno Udrih led all bench scorers with 15 points. The Grizz also shot near 50% from the field and 92% from the stripe. The Magic's inability to slow down Zach Randolph dba -ZBO and on Twitter @macBO50 led with a game-high 24 points and grabbed ten boards. All-Star Marc Gasol added 16 points and ten boards as the Grizz grit and grind their way through the Magic in this one.

Orlando was led by their two scoring leaders in Nikola Vucevic (18 pts 12 rebs) and Victor Oladipo (18 pts 7 rebs) as the Magic turned it over 17 time sand shot under 70% from the stripe. The Magic falls to 15-33 while the Grizz moves to an impressive and rather quiet 32-12 mowing the opposition down left and right!  

  

SYRACUSE 83 #13 NORTH CAROLINA 93 F...Slide over Mr. PAIGE and welcome to BRITT & JOHNSON & MEEKS L.L.C.!...The 'HEELS bounce back on an undermanned in the "Painted-Area" 'CUSE Bunch after UNC was shoved around in the 1st Half to get the "W"!..."CAMPUS HARDWOOD" Here comes the 'HEELS ACC Squads! #CusevsUNC #OrangeNation #TarHeelBasketball #ACCBasketball

The Syracuse Orange was right there for about 33 minutes or so as they played a textbook typical 'Cuse 1st half leading UNC 40-35 at the break. In the end though it was too much 'Heels "Firepower" and excellent Lead Guard play that puts UNC in the winner's circle 93-83 near Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Despite a career-night from 'Cuse Sniper Trevor Cooney getting his inner Gerry McNamara on going for a game-high 28 points. Cooney hitting money ball after money ball and dagger after dagger  has the 'Heels on the ropes in the 1st half.  Then UNC decided to go "Big" and play "Big" and imagine that my "Bigs" are better than your 'Bigs" so we are going to play through the "Bigs"!

All-ACC pre-season pick Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks combined for 34 points and nineteen rebounds as the 'Cuse inside had no answer in the 2nd half. Orange "Big" Rakeem Christmas had a night (22 pts 12 rebs 40 mins) but he and Cooney needed one more body on the glass to overcome the 'Heels depth and size and it just wasn't there.

'Heels All-American PG Marcus Paige went for a team-high 22 points and eight helpers as UNC's other PG Nate Britt went for a career-high 17 points including four money balls that helped the 'Heels balance their attack from inside/out!

UNC survived despite committing some 20 turnovers and 15 of those were in the 1st half. They made up for those turnovers by being +15 on the glass and that was big. UNC moves to 7-1 in ACC Play while the 'Cuse falls to 5-3.  


BULLS 6-Game MOTEL Swing in the "WEST SIDE Story Report"...Da BULLS travel to CALI x 2 over to the "Valley of the SUNS" then in Southern TEXAS over to the Big EASY and then a Field Trip to MOUSE Town!...The 2014-15 BULLS are officially on the LOGO Clock! #BullsNation #WestSideStoryReport #Bulls6GmMotelSwing

The Chicago Bulls will have a chance to be in Phoenix during Super Bowl Week and that should be entertainment for both the Seahawks and Patriots. the Friday before the big game. As for See Red (coming in at #4 in the East at a disappointing 29-17) how will the answer the bell is the Bulls Nation winning question?  

The 2014-15 Bulls as they embark on a six-game Motel Swing has a few things in their favor...

Bulls 16-6 coming out of the Motel only the 37-8 Hawks and the 36-6 Warriors are better on the road...

Bulls get to mesh as Jo from Hell's Kitchen NYC is back in the line up and nothing like that "US against the "Logo" Road Warriors mentality the Bulls will be playing with...

The Cleveland Cavaliers are all of a sudden hot and the Bulls do not need to give up the Central lead just yet...

360 Degrees...

That Warriors Game will set the tone as they have a 21-1 W-L at Planet Oracle playing on Warriors Ground if the Bulls can get a "W" they will go 5-1 on the trip...

Lakers/Suns back to back with the Bulls after playing the Suns with 5 days off and look for See Red to take in a little Big Bowl 49...Lakers are dangerous with no Kobe and PHX Hoops three-set Guard Attack is lethal!

After the big lay-off it's James & James & James & James & James as in "Fear the Beard" #13 of Nike Basketball then the rest of the H-Town Rockets....Bulls can you slow that five down?

Pelicans "Date Night" with the "Brow" as the Host...watch out Bulls and you thought Heat "Big" Hassan Whiteside was doing damage the "Brow" will block a dozen shots and then put up 40 on the other end...yes like that!

The Bulls on that 2nd leg of the Back to Back will be looking for some Retribution on the Magic as Victor Oladipo and Nikola Vucevic went WWE on See Red at the Madhouse for a shocking "W" that sent the Bulls into the Polar Vortex......Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! 

C'mon Bulls Nation I am glad you could come aboard the Bluedude will leave the Seat Belt Light on as we will be flying at 90K feet to get to Planet Oracle and Dub Nation at a robust 36-6.....expected turbulence lies ahead!

THUNDER 98 CAVALIERS 108 F..."BELIEVELAND" > "REGULATORS Report OKC as C-Town Hoops gets Big Games from LeBRON, KYRIE, and KEVIN!...KEV & RUSS combine for 19-49 FG as the THUNDER continues to be a Jump-Shooting Outfit with "NO" Inside Presence! #OKCvsCLE #ThunderNation #CAVSgang @CavsDanSquad

The Cleveland Cavaliers have fixed seemingly whatever the problem was as they will go as King James goes and if the Spalding Orange starts and stops with the King of Akron it's like G.E., " Cavs will bring good basketball to Life"!

OKC started the game out as planned with 26-20 lead with everyone involved. The Cavs then went on a nice run in the 2nd frame turning a six point deficit to a eight point lead 57-49. The Thunder battled in the 3rd following PG Russ Westbrook as he had ten points in the frame and OCK cut the lead to five 83-78.

It was cold-shooting in the 4th that left then Thunder for the "Logo Sunday Dead" as C-Town Hoops forged a 91-80 lead midway through the 4th and never looked back. King James had a game-high 34 points with Kevin adding his usual helping of a double-double 19 points and thirteen boards as Kyrie chips in with 21. Tristan Thompson (excepting his role as the Super-Sub) had 10 points and sixteen boards off he bench including five offensive as OKC must not have read the scouting report on him as he makes a living grabbing Spalding Oranges off the first miss.

OKC was led by KD's 32 points and seven boards as Russ added 22 points, eleven assists and nine boards just missing a triple-double. The not so good part of the Regulators OKC dynamic duo is they combined to shoot 19-49 from the field. "Air Congo" added 15 points and ten boards with former Cavs 1st rounder Dion Waiters netting 14 points.

OKC falls back to .500 at 22-22 and can't continue to get beat on the glass and attempts from the stripe. Cavs move to 25-20 and Bulls you have company in the Central...

COACH K gets 1K "W" beating the JOHNNIES 77-68..."CAMPUS HARDWOOD" Coach K 1,000 "W" + GUS JOHNSON on the Call + WORLD's Most Famous = Greatness Unmatched! #DUKEvsStJohns #CoachKDuke #Krzyzewskiville

the VIDEO of PISTONS losing B-JENNINGS to an apparent ACHILLES Injury...and Get Well Soon COMPTON Lefty! @BrandonJennings @UABasketball #MotorCityPistons

Piston PG Brandon Jennings was leading the Pistons last night in scoring vs the Bucks with 16 points as well as their resurgence and then this happened and unfortunately you know what it is...


The Pistons now will have to regroup as D.J. Augustin was also having a fantastic year when his number is called. He will move into that Pistons line-up as Lead Man, GM, and Prez S.V.G. will find a back-up PG somewhere to back up Augustin!

Get well B-Jennings...

HEAT 96 BULLS 84 F...HEAT Gang dba "Operation WHITESIDE" 14-13-12 hand the BULLS another "L" in the MADHOUSE!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" with a "Thanks LUOL" hitting the JUMBO TRON and the BULLS hitting the da*n wall! #MIAvsCHI #HeatNation #BullsNation #WestSideStoryReport

The Bulls home woes continue and this time it was NBA Journeyman Hassan Whiteside playing "Zo Mourning doing the trick for the Heat. Whiteside controlled the "Painted-Area" blocking a dozen shots, scoring 14 points, and grabbing thirteen Spalding Oranges on his way to the Heat playing "Operation Whiteside" 14-13-12.

Then Bulls,played from behind all afternoon and got as close as seven on a few occasions in the 2nd half only to be folded by the Heat and perennial All-Star SG Dwayne Wade. Wade scored a game-high 26 points in 2nd gear like he was rolling down Biscayne Blvd. on a sunny Miami Sunday Afternoon.  Chris Bosh added 20 points and seven boards to go along with Whiteside's output in the paint.

The Bulls, sent a "Thanks Luol" on the Jumbo Tron as the Bulls 4th leading scorer all-time was making his 1st appearance at the United Center since getting traded last season. He gave his old mates Luuuuuuuuuuuuu-type digits with 15 points, ten boards, and four helpers.

See Red was led by Derrick Rose's 19 points as he was 0-6 from deep. D-Rose's Caddy Aaron "206" Brooks added 17 points shooting 4 for 5 from the arc and where would the Bulls be without Mr. Brooks who can score with any Caddy at the PG Slot in the Logo...any of them.

The Heat shot 1 for 13 from deep as See Red was +18 points from the Arc but Miami countered that with a shooting night of 48% from the field as Chicago shoots 35%. Miami was also +11 on the glass and to make maters worse the West Side Story Report heads out of town for six straight starting with that terrible squad in the G.S.W. Warriors in Planet Oracle on Warriors Ground. Yes the Warriors Guards are not Earthlings and dba "Splash Brothers"...

Bulls fall to 29-17 and the Heat moves to 20-24...

Bulls also fall to 13-11 playing in front of Bulls Nation...do we need Captain Serious and the Indian Head Bulls Nation to suit up for home games...Go Blackhawks!

WIZARDS 96 TrailBLAZERS 103 F...WALL-Star/Real Deal BEAL vs "License to LILLARD"/Bloodline MATTTHEWS Jr. was Theater but the "Only GAME in TOWN" gets the "W"..."LOGO WATCH" with L-TRAIN saying no to SURGERY and yes to 26 pts and 9 rebs on the WIZ Kids D.C. International Front Line of NE NE (Brasil) & GORTAT (Poland)! #WSHvsPOR #WIzKidsDC #RipCityBlazers #TheONLYGameInTown

The Rip City Blazers took care of business vs the Washington Wizards on Saturday Night and the match up between the back courts took a quick side note to even bigger news for the Rip City Blazers. All-Star PF LaMarcus "L-Train" Aldridge was suppose to have surgery on that thumb but instead played in this one with resounding results!

Rip City was down 32-20 after one and 55-45 at the break. That's when the "Only Game in Town" got on their horse as they cut that ten point deficit to a point 70-69 by the end of the 3rd. They did it by 8 points from L-Train coupled with money balls by Matthews and Rip City super-sub Dorrell Wright.

John Wall and Bradley Beal woke up in the 4th going right at Wes Matthews and Damian Lillard as the Wiz Kids D.C. took the lead 83-79 with just over five minute remaining in the contest. It was an L-Train trip to the stripe for two and Matthews again hitting not one but two money balls putting Rip City in the lead 87-85 to stay. Blazers use a 16-11 run to close out the Wizards for a 103-96 "W"!

L-Train had a game-high 26 points while grabbing nine boards with Lillard adding 20 and Matthews 19 as they combined to shoot 7 for 17 from the arc. A 20-20 night from the stripe propelled Rip City to the winner's circle.

Washington gets 25 points and nine helpers from Wall-Star and 19 points and six boards from Paul Pierce. Bradley Beal added 16 points. The Wiz Kids D.C. falls to 29-15 while Rip City moves to 32-13 running away with the NBA Northwest...

PISTONS 86 BUCKS 101 F..."FEAR the DEER" Reinforcements behind O.J. minus the HERTZ Rent-A-Car Agency, the "Beer Town U.S.A. PLASTIC Man" HENSON, and Mr. DUD of Chestnuthill, Mass U Hoops go 3-11 Second Shift with NO Lunch Period!..."LOGO WATCH" with the #6 Ranked in the EAST new BUCKS no longer starring as LOGO Road Kill and bring back the M.E.C.C.A. and the Candy-Stripe 70s-80s Joints! #DETvsMIL #MotorCityPistons #FearTheDEER #WisconsinCheeseSuds&Basketball

The Milwaukee Bucks are heading back to prominence and take note of that. Now we need the M.E.C.C.A. and that rubber diamond playing surface and those 70s-80s candy-striped jerseys along with Don 'Nellie" Nelson coaching playing "Nellie Ball"! What do you NBA Heads know about Brian Winters, Junior Bridgeman (currently has a bid in to buy the NBA Atlanta Hawks), Sidney Moncrief, Alton Lister, Randy Bruer, Terry Cummings, Paul Pressey, Paul Mokeski, and Larry Krystoviak to name a few...stop it Blueduede and I see you ole skool Bucks Nation!

As we fast forward to January 24, 2015 the new Milwaukee Bucks are taking shape playing Team Kidd Hoops. The Bucks on this night slowed down the surging Motor City Pistons playing S.V.G. Hoops led by Under Armour Basketball Pitch Man and Compton, Cali Southpaw Brandon Jennings. B-Jennings would apparently go down in this one with a lower-leg injury in the 3rd after scoring 16 points.

The Bucks down 28-23 after one used a 40-21 run in the 2nd frame to open things up and they never looked back. Yes Kris Middleton and Brandon "Knight Rider" Knight combined for 30 points but it was all about the Bucks Bench.

O.J. Mayo the former Grit and Grind Tenant of Memphis had a game-high 20 points off the pine with four money balls. Jared Dudley of Boston College Hoops and John "Beer Town U.S.A. Plastic Man" Henson both dropped a dozen as the Fear the Deer led by as many as 26 in the 3rd 91-65.

Bucks go onto win 101-86 as the Pistons were led by Jennings 16 and Anthony Tolliver's 12 points. Bucks hit those magic numbers of 50-50-80 shooting 50% Fg, 64% 3pt FG, and 80% from the stripe. Pistons know good and well Teams cannot playing on their floor shoot that well and Detroit wins coming out of the motel.

Bucks move back over .500 at 22-21 while the Pistons fall to 17-27....Jennings Injury if its serious would be a blow to the Pistons at this juncture in the 82-game trek!  

   


KNICKS 71 HORNETS 76 F...Maybe in the NBA SOUTHEAST #ItsABuzzLife as the HORNETS sting KNICKS 8 TRACK..."LOGO WATCH" w/SATURDAY Night Fever here comes BUZZ City on HIVE Drive and can the NYK get to 10 W's before the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend in N.Y.C.? #NYKvsCHA #Knicks8Track #Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The New York Knicks jumped out to a 23-16 lead as they were following the lead of one Bloodline Tim Hardawy Jr. with 10 points in the frame. The Hornets playing great ball in their last eleven games bounced back winning frame to and behind just 37-36 at the break.

The Hornets were led by their back court of former Dayton Flyers PG Brian Roberts and Bloodline Gerald Henderson Jr. combining for 17 at the break. A tough 3rd had the Hornets and Knicks playing in a playoff-like atmosphere with Charlotte leading 57-54 at the end of the 3rd.

Knicks 8 Track no more Knicks Tape got to within 69-66 on two Hardaway free throws at the four minute mark but that would be as closed as the Knicks would get. Buzz City closed on a 7-5 run aided by an Al Jefferson lay-up and free throw and Henderson knocking down two from the stripe for a 76-71 Hornets "W"!

Roberts had a team-high 17 for Buzz City with Henderson Jr. adding 14 with M.K.G. chipping in with 10 points and seven boards. The Knicks were led by Hardaway's 25 points including five from deep. Former Duke player Lance Thomas added 16 points and grabbed eight boards. Neither team shot the Spalding Orange well it came down to making plays and getting "Stops" of course.

Hornets move to 19-26 and the Hive is once again alive in the NBA Southeast. Knicks going 8 Track falls to 8-37 and what is the over and under for ten wins by All-Star Break for Team Spike Lee.

74 FLORIDA State #15 UNC 78 F...TAR HEELS follow the lead of their two pre-season All-ACC Players PAIGE and BRICE JOHNSON but not after 'NOLES SG RATHAN-MAYES dba "X-MAN" and X-Factor hits the Dean Smith Center with a 35-Piece with a side of Money Balls!..."CAMPUS HARDWOOD" 'HEELS move to 6-1 in ACC PLay but dodges the 'NOLES! #FSUvsUNC #NolesNation #TarHeelBasketball

The North Carolina Tar Heels go nip and tuck on Saturday Afternoon with the Florida State Seminoles dodging an "L" and winning 78-74. Yes the 'Heels were led by their two pre-season All-ACC Players Marcus Paige (19 pts) and Brice Johnson (18 pts 14 rebs) but that wasn't the complete story here.

The 'Noles get a game-high 35 points from SG Xavier Rathan-Mayes dba X-Man in this one as he goes 14 for 26 and 5 for 11 from all over the Research Triangle. The difference in the game as UNC had four player in double figures way more balanced than the 'Noles who had just two players in double figures.

It was FSU's Advantage with the Money Ball that kept them in the game as they were +18 in points from deep. Both Paige and Johnson made key free throws down the stretch as FSU made a run late for the victory.

UNC moves to 16-4 and 6-1 in the ACC while FSU falls to 10-10 and 2-5 in ACC play...

#1 KENTUCKY 58 SOUTH CAROLINA 43 F...the #BBN dba #WeRUK goes into Frank Martin Territory and methodically takes down the 'COCKS!..."CAMPUS HARDWOOD" with Coach CAL and the #UKCats defending like no other! #UKvsSCar #UKWildcats #GameCOCKSNation #SECHoops #CoachCALFollowTrain

The Kentucky Wildcats will, struggle on offense at times as they have one pure-shooter in Freshman and 2014 Big Mac Bloodline Devin Booker who had a game-high 18 points in this tilt. One thing this 2014-15 UK Squad does is defend and the South Carolina Gamecocks and lead man Frank Martin had no real shot with Kentucky's Talent all over the place.

The #BBN led 34-24 at the break and held the 'Cocks to 24 and 19 points as Carolina shot just 22% from the field, 30% from the arc and that 76% clip from the stripe kept them from getting blow out and scoring 20 points for the game.

Kentucky's length, athleticism, and instincts on that front line is the best college basketball has seen in years. Along with Booker's 18 it was Twin Aaron Harrison's 13 points  as Freshman PG Tyler Ulis had 6 points and six assists for UK. The 'Cocks were led by Guard Sindarius Thornwell's 14 points and seven boards.

UK moves to 19-0 and 6-0 in the SEC as the Gamecocks fall to 10-8 and 1-5 in the SEC...

#11 KANSAS 75 #17 TEXAS 62 F...ROCK CHALK behind Reinforcements @HumbleKid_2 and Sniper GREENE takes down Lead Man BARNES and 'HOOKEM in Austin!..."CAMPUS HARDWOOD" following the KU Train and Mass Street Hoops Lore! #KUvsTEX #PhogAllenFollowTrain #UTAustinBurntOrange

The Kansas Jayhawks gets a huge lift from two top reinforcements in Freshman Cliff Alexander dba @HumbleKid_2 on Twitter and Sniper Brannen Greene as they outscore the Texas Bench 29-8. The Jayhawks Star Forward Perry Ellis and PG Frank Mason III led the KU Attack as they move to 5-1 in the Big 12.

Alexander gets a team-high 15 points and grabs nine boards with Greene adding 14 including 4 for 5 from the Nike money ball rack as KU was just up 32-30 at the break. UT Austin Burnt Orange was led by Soph. Guard Isaiah Taylor who had a game-high 23 points as he gave KU Guards the Saturday on Campus Matinee Business with no movie butter popcorn, Twizzlers, and Sprite.

It was KU's push in the 2nd half and a 43-32 frame that led them to a 75-62 "W" shooting an impressive 78% from the stripe and taking care of the Orange with just three turnovers. Texas SF/PF Jonathan Holmes added 14 points for Texas as heralded Freshman and almost a Jayhawk Myles Turner chipped in with 8 points and eight boards shooting just 4 for 11 from the field.

Hookem' falls to 3-3 in the Big 12 and winning this one would have put them in a tie with Kansas...big loss!

The Houston Rockets were in control for most of the night until the 4th when Hornacek Ball took full swing. The Phoenix Suns facing a deficit most of the night at home rallies in the 4th tying then game late only to set up this game-winner from Nike Basketball's "Beard" Project Leader James Harden....



Harden ends he night with a game-high 33 points while waiting on ten Red Nation Tables. He led six Rockets in double figures as Patrick Beverley, Corey Brewer, and Josh Smith each had 14 as "Dwight of Three Stripes" Howard goes down with a ankle sprain.

That shot spoiled a huge night from both Eric Bledsoe (25 pts 9 asst 8 rebs), Isaiah Thomas (22 pts , 4-9 3pt FG), and the Morris Twins 33 points and ten boards.

Red Nation moves to 30-14 as Phoenix falls to 26-19...

BULLS 102 MAVERICKS 98 F...SEE RED has their "MOJO" back as they give the MAVS the T.G.I.F. Wrong Column Business and North TEXAS Hoops take that "L" with you!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" BULLS moving in the right direction with a huge MOTEL Swing coming up! #CHIvsDAL #BullsNation #MavsNation #WestSideStoryReport

Bulls went from the tip-off to the tape and gives Team Mark Cuban the T.G.I.F. Wrong Column Business as the Mavs suffer just loss #14 versus 30 W's. The Bulls also had Jo All-Star back on the hardwood as See Red gets all their moving parts going in the right direction for a 102-98 "W" over Dallas.

See Red threatened through the game from Dallas held steady behind the Bulls Top 5 back court of D-Rose dba the "ADIzero BOOST" Hero of Three Stripes and Jimmy Butler the "See Red Butler" wearing Team Jordan. They both go for 20 points as the Mavs front court pieces could not slow them down.  For the two it wasn't a great shooting night (15-35 FG) but eleven boards and nine helpers was par for the course. All-Star Pau Pau Pau added 13 points and grabbed sixteen boards with Taj Gibson off he pine for 15 points and seven boards.

Dallas gets a game-high 24 points from the Dallas Pro Basketball G.O.A.T. in Dirk-ilicious Nowitzki. He shot 10 for 15 from the field. Chandler Parsons added 19 and Monta Ellis 17. The Bulls had trouble in the painted-area as Mavs Center Tyson Chandler blocked five shots and altered at least ten more.

Bulls almost shoot the magic numbers of 50-50-80 (FG% 3pt FG % FT%) as they go 48-56-85 and coming out of the Motel that will put you in the winner's circle on most nights. That shooting negated some 21 turnovers by the Bulls and poor shooting on the Mavs part.

See Red moves to 29-16 while the Mavs fall to 30-14...    

THUNDER 93 HAWKS 103 F...Break out the SHAMP-PAG-NA Atlanta Hoops Fans the BOYS from PHILLIPS Arena can't "STOP" won't "STOP"!..."LOGO WATCH" T.G.I.F. Edition + "REGULATORS Report OKC" = "Running with Team PEACH DROP" as the HAWKS beat O.K.C.! #OKCvsATL #ThunderNation #ATLHawksNation

The Atlanta Hawks keep winning and they cannot be denied as the #1 Team in the east regardless of record. They beat on Friday Night a feisty OKC Thunder Team that slowed down the Thunder big two in KD and Russ. The perfect storm for the 2014-15 Hawks is controlling the all important "Pace" and there is a team out west winning chips in Texas that's all they do when they go the "Fight for Larry"! Hawks Nation stand up for your 2014-15 Hawks dba Team Budenholzer and Hawks Family!

The Hawks led 48-47 at the break and 79-75 after three. Atlanta took off in the 4th behind 2013 top pick in Germany's Dennis Schroder and All-Star to be Paul Milsap as OKC could not contain Schroder who is much-improved being Hawks PG Jeff Teague's Caddy. Atlanta led by as many as 15 points before netting a 103-93 "W" as OKC could do nothing playing at Atlanta's Pace!

Milsap led the Hawks with 22 points and ten boards as he is a mis-match for the opposition on almost every night playing the PF but stretching out to the SF. Teague added 17 points and nine helpers with Big AL Horford dropping 14 points and grabbing a dozen Spalding Oranges. Atlanta helps themselves out shooting almost 50% from the field and 100% from the line going 13 for 13.

OKC gets 22 points and eleven helpers from Russ Westbrook and 21 points from @kdTREY5 with Serge Ibaka adding 13 points and ten boards. OKC is just put together wrong as they have the wrong pieces in place on that front line as Ibaka is a 5th option on a Championship contender or 4th option at best.

Hawks gobbling up the opposition moves to 36-8 as OKC falls to 22-21...

the BLACK MAMBA of Lakers Nation goes down again!...Bluedude Sportstalk FRONT LINE on T.G.I.F. January 23, 2015 as KOBE BRYANT gets hit with FATHER TIME again going down with Season-Ending Rotator Cuff Surgery...what now for the LAKERS Mount Rushmore Nominee? @KobeBryant #LakerNation #LakerGang #KB24Business

No one professional athlete can run from it and when it is time for him or "It" to take over that's exactly what "It" does. Lakers future NBA 1st Ballot HOF and Lakers Mount Rushmore Nominee  Kobe Bryant has another set back.

After jokingly referring to his Shoulder has always been a problem well that problem after an MRI was revealed far greater than maybe even KB 24 expected and the Lakers. The Black Mamba will have season-ending Shoulder Surgery to repair through numerous media outlets have reported a torn right rotator cuff in the shoulder.

Kobe has passed "His Airness" as 3rd on the Logo's All-Time Scoring List this season and now after battling an Achilles Injury and a broken bone near his left knee and now this the 3rd straight season a season-ending injury has derailed KB.  

The Lake Show will move and now the players will rally behind their youthfulness and for some potential job offers for the 2015-16 season.

Kobe is making $23.5 million this season and will get a whopping $25 million in the 2015-16 season as all monies is guaranteed.

Father Time unfortunately is all over Nike's Black Mamba and we will know here by the start of the 2015016 season what Kobe's on the court role will be. His off the court role is being a pitch man for potential free agents to come to Lakers land starting with the Dallas Mavericks Rajon Rondo...and that is a delicious and appetizing start for Laker Nation if they could get their mitts on that dude!  

BULLS @ MAVERICKS...the "WEST SIDE Story Report" got the MEMO "Don't Mess with TEXAS" and don't mess with Team M.F.F.L. dba Dallas Mavericks Basketball Club at a 3013 clip!...#CHIvsDAL #BULLSnation #AA214Basketball #WestSideStoryReport

All the current Chicago Bulls talking that 2014-15 Roster got the message the ADIzero "Boost" Hero D-Rose sent to all Players and See Red took out Spurs Family last night trying to play "Spur Wars" in the Madhouse.

Now the Bulls arrive on the 2nd leg of back to back after landing at Dallas Love Field after Big D has shutdown in the wee hours and for Big D downtown that is 11pm central time as the Bluedude's been there and done that! See Red is trying to make it a Texas Two-Step beating the Spurs and Mavs on consecutive nights.

The Mavs come in with not an All-Star yet (maybe "Mississippi Lightning Monta Ellis or even Dirk-ilicious Nowitzki) but All-Star like credentials at a robust 30-13 win/loss for 2014/15. They have an assortment of weapons and they have just added "Double R" Rajon Rondo to the Mix as he was handed the keys to mark Cuban's expensive whip on 26's.

SPURS 81 BULLS 104 F...Yes the BULLS do it for GASOL to NYC All-Star Game as a Starter...the SEE RED Butler going as a RESERVE (Hopefully)...and D-ROSE telling the TRUTH as SEE RED says "NO" to SPUR WARS and protects the Madhouse!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" BULLS needed that "W" and they needed to get back to Team 6 CHIPS Hoop! #SASvsCHI #SPURSfamily #BULLSnation #WestSideStoryReport

The San Antonio Spurs ran into the Real Bulls standing up as the Bulls played as well as they have played in over a month. It was D-Rose leading the way with 22 points and all five Bulls Starters in double figures.

Bulls leading 46-40 at the break put it in high gear in a decisive 3rd frame going on a 27-9 run before the Spurs Reinforcements led by Aussie Patty Mills and his two money balls late in the frame. The Spurs crawled back into after being down 73-48 under midway through the 3rd. See Red led 77-60 after three as Rose had all 22 before the 4th and Aaron Brooks eleven points at the end of three.

San Antonio playing with their Bench in the 4th tried to get back in the game but could not. Bulls cruise to a 104-81 "W" as Bulls nation with ticket stubs has 48 hours from now to get their free Big Mac and take that Big King and you know who you are!  

The "Spaniard" getting great news from the "Logo"and NBA Heads as he was voted by the Fans to make his 5th All-Star game Appearance. He went 12 points and grabbed seventeen boards in this one with Butler adding 17 as he should also be going to the All-Star Game as a reserve.

Spurs Family was led by Kawhi Leonard's 16 points and Patty Mills 12 points as they shoot 37% from the field and under 30% from the arc. San Antonio falls to 27-17 while the Bulls move to 28-16...

I saw the mini-TD Celebration and you really had to be watching to see it. The NFL slowed it down and probably watched it 1,000 times but didn't get the Ray Rice Tapes before they were made public...yeah right!

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch from the "Town" East Bay gets hit again for what has been deemed as an inappropriate gesture after hitting "Pay Dirt" vs Wisconsin Cheese Brats and Football the Green Bay Packers. Through numerous media outlets the fines will be $20K and Mr. Velvet Ropes will have to also adhere to making himself available to speak to the media.

Meanwhile the NFL needs to clean up an assortment of other key issues that have o do with altering the play of the game which is far greater offense. Or does it just depend on what Team or Teams alter the things inside the boundaries?

BEAST MODE TD Celebration...(note: at the end of the TD Run watch him grab his lower mid section...Lol!)

The San Antonio Spurs had a lot of issues in the Month of December and a lot of it had to do with just getting back healthy. Spurs Family at 27-16 is just 7th in a loaded Western Conference coming into tonight's action. They will have their full assortment in this one unless lead man "Pops" pulls a "Resting Players due to an assortment of maladies"!

The Bulls in turn 4th in the East at the same W-L as Spurs Family 27-16. See Red is in the midst of a terrible stretch with no Joakim Noah, D-Rose telling it like it is, and all of a sudden a team coached by "Thibs" can't gets stops so what are they? We will find out after D-Rose called his team out the response here shortly as Spurs Family will be playing Spur Wars...believe that with Spalding Oranges inflated to the right ball pressure if that is any consolation!

PLAYBOOK

Bulls need to play Team Defense and rotations must be solid and crisp playing that Spurs Offense of the "Open Man" is the best shot regardless of what the jersey says...

Spurs need to slow down D-Rose and guard him from the Arc as the last two weeks Rose is shooting over 44% from the Arc...

Spurs PG TP9 of France has to challenge D-Rose and the Bulls "D" that has been struggling...

Bulls need to go Inside/Out going through the "Spaniard"...

Spurs Bench is tough and the Bulls Bench Mob will be challenged...who wins the Bench Points!

Where has the "See Red Butler" been as his offensive production has fallen off of late?

Spurs Manu Ginoboli is a terror off the Spurs Bench who on the Bulls can slow him down as they need a team effort in stopping one of Planet Earth's best closers on the Hardwood...

Both teams are well-rested as the Bulls have to be feeling the pressure coming from the 23-20 Cavs...imagine that the Cavs struggles and the Bulls didn't make any ground!

"Pops" vs "Thibs" as the Spurs Lead Man will be doing what he does playing "Spurs Wars"...Bulls what do you have for Spurs Family?

trailBLAZERS 113 SUNS 118 F...It went 3 on 3 in the "VALLEY of the Suns" as the "DRAGON", Birmingham "BARON", and ISAIAH of Tacoma > "License to LILLARD", BATUM of France, and "Bloodline" MATTHEWS Jr..."LOGO WATCH" on Hump Day late January as SUNS tip the scale on BLAZER Mania with all that "FIREPOWER" from "MOUSE" in the House! #PORvsPHX #RipCityBlazers #SunsNation

I will tell you this much as they sit in the 8th slot in the west no one will want to play the Phoenix Suns with all that "Firepower" from the guard slots. The Suns starting out blazing versus the Portland Trailblazers then cooled off and then started again as the Rip City Guards Dame Lillard and Wes Matthews did their best to try and match those Sun Guards.

The Suns jumped out to 40-29 lead after one and a 66-52 lead at the break behind as both Eric Bledsoe and Isaiah Thomas had 13 points each. The Blazers still down 15 at the end of three 91-76 spent so much energy trying to stay close they just ran out of gas in the 4th.

Rip City though came roaring back in the 4th behind Lillard, Matthews, Nicolas Batum and supporting actor trying to get a lead role in Dorrell Wright (15 pts) as they tied the game at 102-102 at the five minute mark. It was the Suns in the penalty as they make seven free throws and go on a 16-11 run to close out the game.

The Birmingham "Baron" Eric Bledsoe had a game-high 33 points with ten boards and six helpers. Isaiah added 27 points and throw in the "Dragon" Goran Dragic's 16 points the Suns Guards accounted for 76 of the Suns 118 points.

The Blazers gets a team-high 27 points (6-8 3pt FG) from France National Team Star Nicolas Batum as the Suns have no small forward to guard him.  Matthews and Lillard both net 22 points as Rip City shoots 13 for 32 from Glendale. Rip City falls to 31-12...

The Suns moving to 26-18 and holding of the OKC Thunder for #8 in the west shot 51% from the field.

MAVERICKS 98 TIMBERWOLVES 75 F...Team M.F.F.L. follows "PARSONS in a DEEP Ellum Tree" as DALLAS gets all 13 Players in the Scorebooks!.."LOGO WATCH" with Mark Cuban's Team at a low-profile 30-13...yikes! #DALvsMIN #MAVSnation #PackOfWolves

The Dallas Mavericks seemingly flying under the Logo Radar smacks 10K Lakes Pro Hoops with a 98-75 drubbing. Dallas used a 35-18 second frame to open things up and that spurt led to a 59-38 lad at the break.

The 'Wolves still playing without PG Ricky "La Pistola" Rubio out with what has been deemed a sprained ankle but through reports it could be worse. Meanwhile the Mavs cruise in the 2nd half to a 98-75 win inspired by Chandler Parsons game-high 22 points.

"Parsons in a Deep Ellum Tree" led the 13 Mavs into the score books with only the Mavs G.O.A.T. Dirk-ilicious Nowitzki the only player outside of Parson going double figures with 16. Dallas shot 51% from the field and hit eleven money balls at a 40% clip.

Minnesota gets 18 from rook Andrew Wiggins and 14 apiece from "Thad-Ex" Thaddeus Young from Memphis and Nikola Pekovic of Montenegro. 10k Lakes shoots 34% from the field and under 13% from the arc as they fall to 7-34 giving those Knicks Lottery Balls all they want and then some.

Dallas moving to 30-13 will be a tough out in the "Fight for Larry" as the Western Conference Playoffs are starting to look like Florence, Colorado's Super-Max Prison...who is going to escape?
 

BLACKHAWKS 3 PENGUINS 2 F/SO...The INDIAN Head takes down Team HAPPY FEET at the CONSOL Energy Complex in a Shootout as the HAWKS "Tonto & Lone Ranger" get the winners!..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison as the HAWKS enter the All-STar Break on a good note! #CHIvsPIT #OneGoal #PensNation #FearTheINDIANHead #FrozenTalkHawks

The Chicago Blackhawks needed to end the 1st half of the 2014-15 season on a solid note entering All-Star Break and they did just that. After taking apart the 'Yotes of the "Valley of the Sun" last night at the Madhouse the Hawks went head to head with one of Ice Games best in the Penguin of Pittsburgh Hockey!

It was David Rundblad goal in the 1st frame for the Hawks as they went up 1-0. The Indian Head then went power play in frame two and a Marian Hossa score his 10th on the season had the Hawks thinking we are headed to the All-Star Break with no turbulence.

Then the Pens got it going on a Zach Sill goal just three minutes after Hossa made it 2-0 Hawks. The Pens were not done in the 2nd as Steve Downie over midway through frame two "lights the lamp" for 'Burgh Hockey tying the game up at 2-2.

The score would stand through regulation as no one scored in the extra five minute as well. Then it was the Indian Head's "Tonto and Lone Ranger" in Captain Serious #19 and the Bison City Mullet #88 who both beats Pens "Blue Paint" Tenant Marc-Andre Fleury in the shootout as the Hawks get the much-needed two points and the win.

Hawks "Blue paint" Tenant Corey "Craw-Dad" Crawford stopped both shots by David Perron and "Sid the Kid" Crosby as "Craw-Dad" stopped 33 of 35 SOG. Fleury stopped 24 of 26 SOG as the "Pens outs hot the Hawks by +9.

Chicago enters All-Star Break 30-15-2 with 62 points as the Pittsburgh Penguins fall to 26-12-8 with 60 points.

2014-15 WEST All-Star Game REINFORCEMENTS

C Marc Gasol #GritGrind dba Baby SPANIARD
PF LaMarcus Aldridge #RipCityBlazers dba L-Train
SF @kdTREY5 #OKCthunder dba OKC's Slim Reaper
PG Russel Westbrook #OKCthunder dba Russ of Jordan Brand  

360 Degrees...

Lillard has been arguably outside of Steph Curry the 2nd best PG in the Logo for 2014-15...did Blazer Mania hit a "Granny" getting this dude from "Point Guard City" Oakland, CA...

CP3 still is one of the best and anyone rolling with State Farm has to be a good thing...right!

Klay is the best two-way SG in the game and he is a real treat on the offensive end...

Gasol might be the best true Center in the Logo...

L-Train belongs and he is a Top 10 Player in the Logo right now...

KD was out for awhile but the reigning "Fight for MO" (NBA M.V.P. Maurice Podoloff trophy) Winner belongs...

KD's teammate Russ Westbrook is just a punisher and a real doozy in the post game interview...real talk!


 

2015 NBA EAST All-Star Game REINFORCEMENTS going "SQUEEZE the ORANGE"...the Bluedude's taking the "VOTES" from the NBA Head! #EastAllStarGameReinforcements

The Bluedude has spoken going with Kyrie, Lebron, Wall, Big Al from ATL, and Pau as the East All-Star Game Starters next month in NYC. New Yorkers probably can't wait as it will be a win win weekend and they need a "W" like the NFL needs to come down on the Patriots like the Feds came down on Mr. Madoff...yes I went there and back to NBA Hoops Talk!

2014-15 EAST All-Star Game Reinforcements
Note: NBA All-Star Games have 7 Reserves

SG Jimmy Butler dba #BullsNation"See Red Butler"
SF the Bully" of #Knicks8Track dba 'Melo Anthony
SG Wade County of #HeatGang dba Dwayne Wade
PG Kyle Lowry dba K.L. of #WeTheNorth
C Nikola Vucevic #MouseTownMagic
PG Jeff Teague #HighlightFactory J.T. of Circle City
PF C.B. 1 #HeatGang dba Chris Bosh

360 Degrees...

Jimmy Buckets has emerged as D-Rose's Shooting Guard and he along with Klay Thopmson make up the two best two-way shooting guards in the Logo...

'Melo needs to be in the game based on the Knicks hosting the game...

Wade is still a legit top threat on every night and still a Top 5-8 SG in the Logo...

Lowry has the Raptors running away from the Atlantic Division and as he goes the Dinosaurs go...

Vucevic is nasty in and around the paint as his game has evolved into a 5-star low-post presence and he demands a double team and if you don't...20 pts 15 rebs are in the book...

Teague has been this good for years now that Budenholzer Ball has come full circle he gets his due...

Bosh still one of the best PF's in the game and right there as the #1 PF in the East along with Al Horford...
