    Why do players get ejected for defending themselves? I couldn't believe the other night when a player attacked a Sixers player after getting fouled. They break up the fight and let the guy take his foul shots! Should have at least cancelled it out, better yet the guy should have been ejected.

    I dang sure wouldn’t let any fine or ejection stop me from stompin’ @$$ if some joker gave me a cheap shot &/or swung on me. A real man defends himself against other men...& let’s chips fall where they may.

    Yes, Redick injured his knee. Some kind of broken bone. McConnell has been playing.

    What a game by Jokic. That is his second triple double in a week. He is starting to turn it on.

    Last night stats:
    Rubio, UTA: 34/9 ast. Season high 34 points.
    Dragic, MIA: 33/9/5 ast. Dragic will replace the injured Kevin Love in the All Star Game.
    Olynyk, MIA: 19/8/5 ast.
    Gallinari, LAC: 24/9
    Anderson, HOU: 21/8
    Mirotic, NOP: 19/12 Nikola Mirotic acquired by New Orleans from Chicago.
    Jokic, DEN: 19/9/5 ast.
    Satoransky, WAS: 19/6 ast.
    Bogdanovic, IND: 19
    Sabonis, IND: 10/8
    Zipser, CHI: 16/5
    Saric, PHI: 16/5
    Nowitzki, DAL: 15/7. Dirk, (30,901 points), is 519 points from passing Wilt Chamberlain for 5th all time scorer. He will need another year to do it! Hopefully, he'll play out his contract. He should also log his 50,000th career minute, Monday, moving him into 5th all time.
    Gortat, WAS: 10/11
    Hezonja, ORL: 15

    Good wrap up Carolina. I think Gallinari may have been injured earlier this season; I don't remember seeing his name in the box scores much.

    Whatever happened to Andrea Bargnani, the former #1 pick? Did he retire, or go to play in Europe?

    Good news Dragic will be playing in the All-Star game.

    Washington Compost had a good article today talking about how well Satoransky is doing filling in at point guard for the injured John Wall. Wizards are 4-0 with him as the starter.

    Go Dirk! It will be epic when he passes Wilt Chamberlain as the 5th alltime scorer.

    Yes Riggins44, Gallinari missed 25 games with a glute injury. Now with the trade of Blake Griffin, he should figure more prominently.
    If Dirk plays next season, he will pass Chamberlain for fifth. However, Lebron is hot on Dirk's tail, trailing Nowitzki by around 900 points and barring a catastrophe, sadly, will pass Dirk for 5th. Leaving Nowitzki as the number 6 all time scorer. Still, Nowitzki among the only 2-3 players with 30,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, and 3,000 assists. ....and the only player in history with 30,000 points, over 10,000 rebounds, 3,500 assists, 1,000 steals, 1,000 blocks, and 1,500 3 pointers!
    Last nights stats:
    Porzingis, NYK: 22/8
    Kanter, NYK: 10/12
    MGasol, MEM: 20/6/5ast.
    Bender, PHO: 18/5. The 20 year old getting some starts lately and playing well!
    Muscala, ATL: 15/6
    Nurkic, POR: 14/8
    Valanciunas, TOR: 12/9

    Wow! Another injury! New York Knicks Star Kristaps Porzingis, helped off the floor with an ugly knee injury! We'll know the extent of the damage by tomorrow, I guess. Looking forward to Golf and Baseball, but hopefully with less injuries. Remember all the MLB injuries last year?

    Torn ACL for KP. The top white scorer and league leader in blocks per game! Arguably the best white player in the game is now done for the next 10-12 months and may not ever be the same. With Gordon Heyward gone and Kevin Love injured, it looks even darker for pale faces in the NBA! I still keep up with Jokic, Dragic, and Reddick, etc., but it's on to MLB and the PGA.

    Saw The Bucks traded away their 1st rd pick Rashad Vaughn from a few years ago to The Nets for Tyler Zeller. Vaughn doesn’t get nearly enough credit for how much of a bum he is! 3ppg average! Milwaukee chose him out of UNLV when they could have drafted hometown favorite Sam Dekker.

    Horrible news regarding KP! I’ll agree NBA season is all but done now.

    Dragan Bender is finally getting some minutes and has had two good games in a row. 23 points last night is his career high. He has a lot of potential. 7' 1" Croatian with 3-point range, #4 pick in the 2016 draft. Only 20 years old.
