    Grayson Allen had a fine game tonight in limited action. He scored 11 points in 13 minutes of play. The Jazz may be playing
    very good but they still need to find more minutes for Allen. Grayson has all star potential in the future if he can just play
    enough minutes and become a starter eventually.

    Ilyasova had 19pts 10reb in Milwaukee's win over Toronto.

    Donte D tallied a career high 15 pts other day.

    Followed it up last night with 12pts 8reb.

    Pat Connaughton has finally registered some playing time with The Bucks. Scored 10 and 6 reb, followed by 8pts 8reb.

    I believe Allen is in Utah's main rotation now, as he had 11 pts last game as lightning said and has played 9 mins thru the first half tonight with 2 pts and a couple assists so far.

    Elsewhere I've noticed Brooklyn have been starting Joe Harris, and he looks there to stay averaging 12 pts 4 rebs and 2 assts so far this year. He played great tonight as well going for 23 pts and 5 rebs!

    Good catch. Harris seems to have a pretty decent lock on the starting role so I’ve updated the list. Layman and Bjelica have also maintained their starting spots so I’ve added them as well. Overall since the beginning of the season we’ve seen a slight uptick in White starters!

    8 White scorers in the top 50 thru 10 games:

    Mirotic 22.4
    Gallinari 19.8
    Doncic 19.4
    Love 19.0
    Vucevic 18.3
    Jokic 18.0
    Redick 17.9
    Dragic 17.7

    6/8 are Euros, and the 2 Americans are over age 30. (6/8 players’ names end with “ic(k)”.)

    Love is injured, so will be dropping off the list. Luka Doncic has been the most impressive rookie, looks to be the real deal. Overall, confirmation that the NBA is a black league.

    Hayward will eventually be on that list once he gets back to form. Also Porzingis and Markkanen when they come back from injury.

    Kevin Huerter is starting tonight per Weenie World, apparently Taureen Prince is out so Huerter takes his place. Look out for Huerter tonight whos been playing good and may be my new favorite player, either him or fellow rookie Donte Divencenso.

    Only a few games last night, but there still was some big stat-lines on the night:

    Dario Saric- 18 pts, 9 rebs (starting to pick his numbers up after a rough start)
    J.J Redick- 17 pts, 4 assts
    N. Vucevic- 21 pts, 14 rebs, and 2 blks
    D. Sabonis- 17 pts, 11 rebs, and 1 blk
    Bojan Bogdanovic- 16 pts, 2 stls
    K. Olynyk- 20 pts. 4 rebs
    N. Jokic- 37 pts, 21 rebs, 3 assts, and 2 blks!
    N. Bjelica- 14 pts, 8 rebs, and 2 blks
    Joe Ingles- 27 pts, 7 assts, and 5 rebs
    R. Rubio- 17 pts, 7 assts, 6 rebs
    G. Hayward- 13 pts, 7 assts (slowly starting to look like the man he was in Utah)
    J. Harris- 24 pts, 3 assts, and 2 stls

    Luka Doncic is currently the top ranked rookie so far, and is also the front runner for the rookie of the year. Thru 12 games Doncic is taking the NBA by storm, and has made anybody who said his athleticism won't translate look stupid. Doncic is averaging 20.3 ppg, 6.5 rebs, 4.2 assts, 0.9 stls easily beating his expectations by a mile. Doncic has the makings of something great, I know he's not American but Doncic looks like he can be the next Larry Bird in terms of star power.

    Another rookie who's played good right off the bat is Donte Divencenso who was ranked as the 5th best rookie by CBS. Divencenso is averaging only 7.6 pts, 3.7 assts, and 2.5 rebs in 20 mins off the bench, and while those numbers don't look that great it's his athleticism, hustle, and defense that make him so valuable. With his combination of shooting, athleticism, and play-making at 6'5 he looks like a furure all-star!

    Doncic and the Mavs face a tough test playing OKC tonight. I will be flipping between college fooball watching Cal vs USC and this game. I having seen him play a full game yet but he is special for sure. Doncic will be a perennial all star!

    I’ve watched Doncic a few times and he is definitely the real deal. He doesn’t have to serve a racial apprenticeship, so he can play with confidence.

    Yup so we gain 1 starter in that trade with Saric projected to start in Minnesota, and Redick replacing Saric when really Redick shouldve been starting ahead of Fultz.

    Agreed, but we can't two white starters! So tonight Redick gets the start and has 17 points/21 minutes. Fultz coming off the bench as he should.

    Bulls PG Ryan Arcidiacono has been a pleasant surprise this season season earning the starting spot with averages of 7 pts 5 assts and 1 stl pg so far! Arcidiacono wasn't even a lock to make the team, but he's has proved to be a reliable "true PG" for the bulls.

    Doncic had 24 points tonight leading the Mavs to a comeback win against the world champ G.S. Warriors. The
    kid is fearless. We are seeing the emergence of a true superstar. Remember guys he is only 19. What I like is they
    start and play him heavy minutes and he also has a green light to shoot anytime he wants. The kid is amazing!

    Story filed to ESPN: The Wizards fined All-Star John Wall for unloading a verbal barrage onto coach Scott Brooks in a recent practice. After Wall and his teammates had been challenged to raise intensity in that session, Wall fired back with "F--- you," to Brooks. Story soon.

    And this is his behavior after a win. Imagine what a puke he is after a loss. I think scum like him shouldn't even be in America, much less being an overpaid miserable miscreant playing a game. I hope he dies eating a turkey sandwich.

    Bumping for an update to my initial post. Mostly some gains with starters but a few guys injured. At least none are season ending.
