Just two games last night so night so I’ll keep this brief.
Bulls – Knicks
Wow that was an ugly game. Like really ugly! Except for
This was obviously the best part… but it looks even more impressive frozen in a photo than in the replays. The two defenders, the extension… splash… game… well actually just one point lead but eventually – game…
Looks like Tyson Chandler finally realized he needed some offensive skills. Its great to see him facing up and taking a jumper in these first two games. It would add a lot to his game if he can do this consistently. Odd though that it took him 12 years in the league to realize this.
Carmelo hasn’t looked anything like last season. Neither have the Knicks.
They still stayed in this game somehow and didn’t get bullied by Chicago like they did all of last year, but as Kerr mentioned in the broadcast, they still don’t seem to have an identity in place.
And now the feature presentation
Warriors – Clippers
Chris Paul and Steph Curry basically played a game of one on one at the end and it was Awesome.
Clippers one this one but these teams will see each other again 3 more times. And then possibly the Playoffs. CAN NOT WAIT.
Chris controlled the game the way only he can, picking his spots to the tune of a cool 42 & 15 and 6 thefts. And brought his teammates along for the ride.
Steph meanwhile spent the entire game in heatcheck mode. I don’t think there has been a better off-the-dribble shooter EVER. Honestly for him its really a 3 point layup.
This is a great breakdown of his shot. Shooters take note.
The game wasn’t all that close though. Next time hopefully. But its clear that both these teams will give us must-watch basketball all season.
