If you thought the Pelicans were going to ball out and be a good team after they got DeMarcus Cousins, well, not just YET as it is a work in progress. The Pelicans got straight blow out. First game after the All Star game and the Pelicans still celebrating the trade winner they got. 129-99, Houston Rockets won. Anthony Davis (29 points) and DeMarcus Cousins (27points) will get it together. Both players played well with dropping over 20 points. It is a team game and they need the other pieces to step up too. Give them some time to get the groove going on. This is more of progress and getting to know each other tendencies on the court.
The first game at the Smoothie King Arena was one to get better from. I know people thinking the New Orleans Pelicans will just be a good team all of a sudden. It doesn’t change over night. The Houston Rockets is a good team. James Harden, having an MVP season, leading his team right. You already know he was going to ball even if he doesn’t score a lot of points. He had a Double-double: 13 points and 14 assists. The whole Rockets team played well, especially newly acquired shooting guard Lou Williams. Willians who was from the Los Angeles Lakers. The baller. Auto-microwave making 7 of 11 3’s in his debut. That man can score a basketball. He had 27 points during the game.
The Pelicans will be getting better, so they are getting their chemistry together. I mean, I didn’t know how the two big man were going to play together. Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins looks like they are capable of balling together. The question is, does the coaching staff have to be able to capitalize on each of the star skills set and dominate? The coaching staff starts with the head coach, Alvin Gentry, so he has to formulate a plan for the team to succeed. The coaching staff will play a big role in the success of the New Orleans Pelicans. They got 20 plus games left, so we will see what they got with those games. New Team. Trusting each other. Basketball is back. Big Man. Basketball Night. 😀

The game between the Cavs vs Thunder. The came end in the 1st quarter with the Thunders wining by 3 in the first quarter 24-21. The Cavs took over the second quarter dropping 37 points in the quarter to be up 58-45 Cavs by half time. The thunders made it close quiet a bit by the end of the 3rd quarter. Irving was shake and baking in this game. Crossing a guy and off to the easy lay up. The game was close sometimes during the game but the Cavs keeps pulling away.
It is simple thunders cant stop Kyrie Irving to be honest. Kyrie been balling like 6 games. 29 in this game with 10 assists. He keeps on getting mismatch and dominating those mismatches. Looking at defenders in the eyes as he crosses him or shoots a three right in their grill. Westbrook was the best defender on him but he cant play the whole game on him with all the picks and roll. Lebron was is normal self he just Lebron, LOL. To me Lebron is known for his passing in which I saw two nice ball movement passes one for a dunk and the other for a 3. Lebron had 25 points, 8 assists and 14 rebounds.
You know Russell Westbrook was going to do his thing getting a triple double. Mess around and got a triple double. 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for the stank face killer. He had no help though. Thunders wasn’t not making no 3’s this game. Well nothing valuable to help this game out. Westbrook was by himself. You know the game over when Thompson making a jump shot, LOL. 19 points, 12 rebounds and 4 steals for Thompson. That is good for a big man especially 4 steals for a big man. Yikeees! Shut out to Canada and Canadian :D. This game was a blow out really most of the game. Thunders keeps coming back but they couldn’t find that last push to get over the top. The back up came in the game but I like that back up point guard for the Cavs Felder. Watch him in college and he was something to mess with it. Tough small player. He got heart. Cavs won the game 107-91. Fun game to watch.

We all remember when Clippers use to be bums well they are good now and they have been good for awhile. The Chris Paul less Clippers playing the Warriors. They have Blake Griffin back. The two team have beef. Beef about what who knows. Well I know Clippers be talking that BSthrough their mouth about the Warriors Championship was undeserving. This was not a game. The blow was in the making since the 1st quarter. Curry was on fire this game like, geesh! He make like an half court three to end the half with a buzzer beater 3 pointer basically.
Curry, curry up the clippers in the 3rd quarter with 25 points and by the end of the quarter he had 43 points alone in the game. 9 rebounds 6 assists. This was Steph Curry game. He can shoot. I mean 9 3’s in the game like that’s 27 points of threes alone and still the 4th quarter to play. Curry can shoot he just not clutch. He neeeds to get his clutch genes up. No one got time for that missing game tying or winning shots. He did outscore the Clippers in the 3rd quarter with his 25 points. I am tough in him because I know he can do better.
Curry and the Warriors did work on the Clippers. This was like 40 something point blow out. Curry, Durant, Thompson on the bench in the 4th quarter. This is a blow out 120-74 in the 4th. The beginning of the 4th to b exact. They need Chris Paul back. Durant there with is 23 points. Bench players coming to and pouring in on the blow out. Curry said fall back let me shine tonight. Chinese new year and Curry fire it up. Happy Chinese New Year! Warriors got the W. Warriors came to play tonight. 144-98 was how it finished. 40th win for the Warriors.

Rematch of Cavs vs. Warriors. Cavaliers won the first match up on Christmas day. This game on a holiday like MLK look like a show down but it was more like a beat down from the Warriors. Cavs got the beat down put on them. Warriors’ defense was on point. You already know Draymond Green. Was going to bring his defensive game. Irvin was played tough by Draymond Green. You know already, he brings it on offense and defense. Golden State blowing Cavs out first 2 quarters. Green and Durant getting blocks.
LeBron playing the point position being too passive. The game was pretty much a blow out the whole game. Warriors slashing to the rim for easy buckets. They playing team basketball. Livingston straight balling making mid range shots. Durant getting block on LeBron dunk. Draymond getting a triple doubles. Irvin lays getting ballooned. Ballooned means Block. I mean as if the whole team blocked his layup. Warriors sent a message this game. Pay back from Christmas loss. However, they put that grandma ma beat down on them.lol. Popeye spinach beatdown. No easy buckets.
MLK massacre for real. Warriors playing their backups. Durant, Curry and Thompson on the bench chilling in the 4th quarter watching the beat down. 35 points lead with 36.4 seconds in the game. 126-91. Curry had 26 points. Durant had. 17the career triple double and 5 blocks for Draymond Green. Third triple-double of the season. Warriors are 35-6 now and Cavs are 29-11. Warriors better play like this in the playoffs. This game was suppose to be a good game not a blown out. Every day you learn something new.
Today, I learn Cavs gets blown out, LOL. Expand your mind and have fun doing it. Brainy Versatility.
