You and Many Others Watched Last Night

The execs at Turner are undoubtedly pleased with the ratings from Opening Night: “The NBA season opened with a bang on TNT. Tuesday’s NBA Opening Night doubleheader averaged a 2.8 overnight rating on TNT, up 40% from a 2.0 last year. In particular, Celtics/Cavaliers drew a 3.2 overnight rating, up 52% from a 2.1 for last year’s Opening Night matchup between the same teams … Meanwhile, the Clippers/Lakers nightcap drew a 2.5 overnight rating, up 19% from a 2.1 for Blazers/Lakers last year.”

    If Greg Oden can get 12 rebounds and 5 blocks a night I don’t care what he scores!

  • nomnad48

    Oden is a Beast and will dominate the paint for the next 15 years

    Because if you’re team had over 1/4 of their possessions result in turnovers you have to look at where they are coming from.

    26 turnovers a game is hard to win with on a regular basis.

    Oden can be a best if he stays healthy. It will be interesting if he morphs into a pure defensive specialist ala Ben Wallace or if he becomes more aggresive with his offense.

    gerard… sport 1 is broadcasting the nba again. I got that message like a week before it was posted on the other sites.

    houston is a superstar or two away from being a great team (yao ming/tracy mcgrady) haha

  • J.B

    wow, all these dutch people. and crappy sport 1

    Oden is not dominating anything. 2pts against the Rockets- without Yao Ming. He should of broke out lastnight against the scrub centers Houston has. Give him his props for what- being injured.

    If Greg Oden can get 12 rebounds and 5 blocks a night I don’t care what he scores- that will only work against scrub teams.

    @roman – Houston has probably the best defensive 4 man in the L on it’s roster. The great forward defenders are playing as centres, that’s all.

    Are the Clippers really that stacked on paper, but stink that bad. Wow. Baron Davis. 1-10 again LAL, followed by 4-11 last night. What exactly did you do in the off season?
