Nuggets signed Austin Rivers to a 10 day. He might be the starting PG for most the remainder of the regular season with Murray out for the year and Morris out for a good while with a pulled hammy.

They started Facu at going last night and the Grizz were leaving him open. He's making a decent % of his threes on the season (.373 and nearly 3/4 of his shots are from 3) but he's only shooting 5.5 per 36 and they are mostly open. The team needs a guard that is at least a bit of a threat off the dribble and somebody that will at least be guarded at the 3 point line so the team isn't playing 4 on 5 offensively. It's unfortunate that the Nuggets will be reliant on a 10 day contract player to play a pivotal role on what should have been a championship contender.

at least he was a viable NBA player at one point.  could be worse. not ideal, but could be worse.

Statistically, things don't look much different these last couple years from his "peak" in LA. His usage is down a bit, he's quit taking FTs (which is concerning), and he's traded some mid rangers for threes, but otherwise he looks like the same player. I haven't watched him much over the last couple seasons so I don't know if he sucks worse or not, but he'll fit better as a combo guard in the starting lineup than the other options they have.

Steph Curry now has 21 career games with 10 or more made 3's. Doesn't seem like a lot until you see Klay is second with 5 games and Curry is a career 43 percent 3 point shooter on that kind of volume. Crazy. 

just saw this on reddit:

If Steph Curry went 0/500 on 3 pointers and then retired, he'd have a higher 3-point percentage than Ray Allen.

Ridiculous.

Ray Allen - 2,973 / 7,429 = 40.01%

Steph Curry - 2,755 / 6,342 ---- 2,755 / 6343 + 500= 2755 / 6843 = 40.26%

He wasn’t bad for the Knicks earlier this season, Rose’s acquisition and Quickly emerging just made him expendable.

Embiid playing tonight when the rest of the starting line up is out.  Just punt this game and rest him... but I guess they're worried about getting fined, and also Joel wants that MVP badly.

i'm glad they seemed to be playing it conservative with Toby and some of the others. Those Bucks games coming up are bigger deal. First one is tomorrow right? back to back with away games is just silly

really fun game...

Not sure if sarcasm or not.  Been pretty entertaining so far.  Surprised our bench has really stepped up and kept this a close game.

also wiggins with a miserable layup choke to tie the game with 7 seconds left. and westbrook gets 20 boards. also a really fun game. 

My buddy asked me pre-game how many 3's Steph would get tonight, and not a word of a lie I texted him back "2" as a total joke.

These injuries are really getting out of hand.

Marc Stein @TheSteinLine

Atlanta's Trae Young just helped off the court by teammates after a bad landing on his left ankle.

Westbrook has been fantastic lately. They’ll get destroyed but I hope they get Brooklyn in round 1

My favorite player to watch. Nice to see him go on a tear after the all-star break. His wife had a little twitter breakdown over all the haters. Really they just have to live with it. Since she is in charge of so much of his fashion, I tweeted her to make him a shirt that says, "Not an All-Star".

Fun game, but so sloppy. Was difficult to watch at times. If I bet I would have lost a small fortune betting the overs on Curry and Beal having over 30 points. They each went in with an 11 and 6 game streak. 

Jordan Poole looks like he is going to have little nice career. Has the look of a future 6th man of the year.

I think he checked off 250 of those 500 tonight.

I think Westbrook might just be misunderstood. He has a mean look on his face, but maybe that is just his face and he is super competitive. Everytime I watch him play this year though he is always helping guys up, says my bad on hard fouls and is talking to tge other team after games.

Short off-season, trying to cram 72 games in 5ish months as opposed to 82 in 7 months, but the players are the wusses and ruining the sport by taking days off amirite?

:sarcasm:

honestly don't like praising him cuz it brings out the haters, i won't engage. remember all the generous, charitable, philanthropic stuff many learned about kobe post mortem? russ is just like that, maybe moreso. i could go on, but...

those who hate his inefficiency have a point.

By all accounts he is a first-rate human being. His game is polarizing and his emotions get the better of him on the court sometimes, so I think people get the wrong impression
