    I had forgotten all about Grayson Allen. Great to see him in the league and getting minutes/playing well.

    JJ Redick makes Maverick’s debut tonight. I think he will be a quality contributor.

    Nikola Jokic leads the Denver Nuggets in nearly every single statistical category. These categories are points, assists, rebounds, steals, field goal percentage, 3-point percentage, minutes played per games, and production PER.

    If Jokic continues to dominate at the offensive end while being a good defender, the Serbian native may very well win the 2021 MVP honors. I hope he gets it as he puts up triple
    doubles like a hall of famer. He is a complete all around player and has been an all star multiple times. I hope the voters later this year can look at the stats and have the real MVP win for a change. Lebron and Embid are not worth
    of the mvp award.

    To go one step further. Jokic is in the top 10 of the NBA in scoring, rebounding and assists. He
    blows everyone away as the best all around player and the most valueable to his team! In a fair
    world it's not even a close vote but in CLOWN World we will be shocked if he wins.

    I'm looking forward to several of tonights games. Especially Dallas vs Memphis. The two ex Duke Stars will meet each other on opposing teams. JJ Reddick for the Mavs and Grayson Allen for the Grizzlies.

    Dallas needs to get on a win streak. They have lost too many close games. The NBA has a new format for the playoffs for this year. The top 6 teams in each conference get into the playoffs automatically. The 7 and 8
    ranked teams have to do a playoff just to get into the post season. It's very stupid but the nba has a shorter season by 10 games just for this season so I guess that is why they did it. No one seems to like it. So the Mavs
    are sitting at the number 7 spot in the west. I would prefer to see them get into the top 6 teams. You don't want to have to play extra games just to make the playoffs. Hoping they can get on a roll starting tonight. As
    for Memphis, I hope that Grayson Allen puts on a show as I want him to cement his job as a starter on a permanent basis. It should be a fun game to watch.

    For those that missed the Mavs vs Grizzlies Game. The Mavs won by 1 point in a thriller. Here is how our guys did:

    Luka Doncic 28 points, 9 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 blocked shot
    Kristapps Porzingis 21 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist
    Maxi Keber 8 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 blocked shot
    JJ Reddick 9 points and 1 assist


    Grayson Allen 23 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals
    Jonas Valanciunas 19 points, 15 rebounds and 2 assists

    I just happened to check in on the Mavericks and realized they have JJ Reddick to go along with their 3 white starters. Should be a good post season. Also good to see Grayson Allen getting more starts this season.

    The Nuggest beat the Grizzlies in double overtime tonight as Nikola Jokic had 47 pts, 15 rebounds, 8 assists and 1 blocked shot. Jokic deserves to win the NBA MVP Award with about a month to go in the season.
    Grayson Allen contiues to impress for Memphis scoring 24 pts, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, and 3 steals.

    Highlights for Jokic's big night:


    The Nuggets' second-best player, PG Jamal Murray, is out for the season with a knee injury. Jokic is currently the front-runner for MVP, in no small part because of his team's overall success. In the closing stretch of the season, he will have even more weight to carry. Hopefully, the team leans on Jokic for scoring, raising his stat profile, and also keeps winning. Murray's spot is being filled by 30-yr old Argentine rookie Facundo Campazzo, making the Nuggets that much more compelling as a rooting interest.

    Jokic clearly deserves the MVP despite the best efforts from anti whites in the media like Skip Bayless and Stephen A Smith hyping up Joel Embiid as the MVP. There's a basketball analyst on youtube who is currently producing a video that shows Jokic is one of the best offensive Centers of all time.

    Yeah I'm really liking the Mavs. There's multiple occasions where 4 of the 5 Mavs on the court are white. Its nice to see some diversity in the NBA as the progressives would say LOL Unfortunately Rick can't sort out their defensive scheme and its costing them games.

    They also have Bobjan Marovacic as a back up center. He doesn’t play every night but when he does he always makes a positive impact.

    Wish they hadn’t moved on from JJ Barrea after last season.

    While looking to see how Grayson Allen was doing, I noticed from last nights game between Memphis and LA Clippers, that former Duke teammate Luke Kennard had 28 points and 7 rebounds for the Clippers. He's only started 15 games and seems to do very well when he does. The Clippers signed him to a 4 year $64M contract. Just doesn't make since that he's not playing a more prominent role.... or does every non starter make $16M per year?
    Also, I have seen Kevin Love playing again. He was on on track to be a HOF, but injuries have put his career in jeopardy. He's averaging 16.5 points and around 9 rebounds over the last 7 of 8 games. Good to see Love on the court again. He was once a monster on the boards and scored as well.

    One of the best dunks of the year tonight from Tomas Satoransky of the Chicago Bulls. He dunked over two players! :)

    Meanwhile the Bulls won 108-91 over the Charlotte Hornets. Tomas Satoransky had 10 pts, 7 assists and 3 steals coming off the bench. Markennen had 11 pts and 4 boards off the bench. I hate
    that this guys are now coming off the bench. Especially L.Markennen who has all star talent. Vucevic had 18 pts, 16 rebounds and 6 assists.

    Nice dunk by Satoransky! I've always liked his all around game at PG especially with him being 6'7!

    Even with guys like Tyler Herro, Lauri Markennen, and countless others they have to come off the bench. I noticed Grayson Allen only got to take a handful of shots in the last
    game and had 2 pts after being around 20 pts per game for a while. Is he next to be demoted or just don't pass him the ball? It makes you wonder.

    One guy on a tear is Bogdan Bogdanovich. He is up to about 15 pts a game and has become a star for the Atlanta Hawks. He starts alongside K. Huerter and they have D. Gallinari
    coming off the bench. It's hard to believe but the Hawks are a fun team to watch.

    The Atlanta Hawks continue to be a very fun team to watch with 3 of our guys. Two of them are starters and the third guy comes off the bench. The Hawks beat the Bucks tonight
    and are on track for the NBA Playoffs. From todays win here is how our guys did:

    Bogdan Bogdanovich 32 pts, 3 assists, 1 rebound and 3 steals.
    Kevin Huerter 20 pts, 3 assists, 2 rebounds and 1 steal.
    Danillo Gallinari 15 pts, 2 assists and 3 rebounds off the bench.

    excellent news and Huerter has been a consistent starter since entering the League from Maryland! I believe he's only 21 or 22 as well.

    Luka torched the Warriors last night with 39 points and 8 assists in 28 minutes! He had 3 or 4 absolute circus shots that he makes look routine.

    It is good to see Kelly Olynk fulfilling his potential now that he is getting serious minutes in Houston. I checked the stats and he is averaging 8 pts more per game on Houston as he is now a regular starter. He is a solid player.

    It was a good night for some of our guys like usual. I'm especially happy the Nuggets and the Mavs are playing such good basketball out west. In the east Indiana is probably the team to root for with Miami having an off year.

    Stats from some of out guys tonight:

    Luka Doncic 31 pts, 20 assists and 12 rebounds. Another triple double! :)
    Maxi Kleber 17 pts, 1 assist, 1 rebound and 1 blocked shot.

    Domantes Sabonis 26 pts, 19 rebounds, 14 assists and 1 steal. Another triple double! :)
    Doug McDermott 31 pts, 1 rebound, 1 assist and 1 steal.

    Duncan Robinson 20 pts and 1 assist.
    Goran Dragic 9 pts, 7 assists, 5 rebounds coming off the bench.
    Tyler Herro Missed game due to a minor injury.

    Nikola Jokic 30 pts, 13 rebounds, 7 assists and 1 blocked shot.

    Bojan Bogdonovich (not related to bogdon of the hawks) had 34 points the other day. He and Joe Ingles are stringing together wins without Mitchell and Conley. They play very well together.
