Post Up: Nine Straight

The Heat dominate the Bulls for their ninth win in a row.

by Peter Walsh / @goinginsquad

Heat 86 (38-14), Bulls 67 (31-23)

Miami is playing on another level and won their ninth straight game in a drubbing of the Bulls. LeBron was lights out from the field again, shooting 11-15 for 26 points to go along with 12 boards and 7 dimes. As good as Miami was offensively, they were even better on defense. The Heat held the Bulls to a season-low 67 points, allowed Chicago to shoot just 37.3 percent from the field and forced 26 turnovers. After a 13-0 run in the second quarter, this one was already over as the Heat overwhelmed the Bulls on their home floor. DWade finished with 17 points, 8 board and 5 assists and Ray Allen scored 11 off the bench. Nate Robinson led the bulls with 14 points.

 

Spurs 116 (44-12), Clippers 90 (39-18)

It’s a shame that Tony Parker is never going to win a regular season MVP award because he has been tremendous this season. Parker was unstoppable last night during San Antonio’s beat down on the Clippers and the Parisian finished with 31 points on 12-16 shooting, 7 dimes and 0 turnovers in 28 minutes of play while outplaying his point guard counterpoint, Chris Paul. Over the last five games, Parker has been averaging 29 points and 9 assists and will hopefully at least garner some attention for his play with MVP votes. The Spurs led wire-to-wire and were up by as many as 34 and this one was a laugher for much of the way. Danny Green scored 15 points and dropped 7 dimes. Blake Griffin scored 17 points and grabbed 8 boards and Matt Barnes scored 18 off the bench.

    Tony Parker is the most underrated player in the league right now.

  • http://twitter.com/stepfdelaghetto Stepfan Raiford

    Spurs ran an absolute clinic on the Clippers last night. Dr. James Naismith would be proud of that ball movement. Lob city just doesn’t match up well against them. And once again Tony Parker is in the MVP conversation, but probably won’t win it because of the insane production/level Lebron is playing at right now.

  • http://twitter.com/vannshy vannshy

    1st time I’ve seen Chris Paul being outplayed so badly

  • theDankerNuggets

    oh the things coach Pop would do with that Clippers roster. Obviously the Clippers are way more talented and deep but the Spurs are coached soo much better

  • The Fury

    Hope they give it to Parker this year though, since they gave it to Lebron for the umpteenth time (deserving)..lol.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Pop vs Vinny Del Negro is like putting Einstein up against Dr. Suess.

  • Sergio

    Well, when Deron Willians was a top 3 pg (NOT LONG AGO), he used to destroy CP3 in their head-to-heads.

  • MUBWAR

    a little mix of ellis and cp3 gives you Parker.

  • Kadavour

    Chris Paul is an excellent off ball defender because he often reads his opposition well and knows what they’re likely to do, but when he’s up against studs like Parker or bullies like Deron, his weaknesses are exposed. Might be just me, but I think a PG should be able to drop 30 if his team needs it and you just don’t see CP3 imposing his will on defenses in this way consistently enough.

  • lights out

    not a fair comparison. dr. suess was a genius.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i don’t think he was a genius compared to Einstein. Just guessing tho.

  • RayJr

    I agree with Stepfan Raiford that Spurs ran a clinic not only on ball movement but also moving without the ball. CP3 looked completely lost out there trying to hang with Parker. What a weak showing coming off of an All Star game MVP and Parker definately went up about 10 notches on CP3 last night. Almost perfect execution and I don’t think I’ve seen any team play that well this year. This has to be one of the worst showings coming off of winning an All Star MVP.

  • RayJr

    Pop vs just about any coach in the league right now.

  • http://twitter.com/stepfdelaghetto Stepfan Raiford

    hahahahah so true

  • Caboose

    This MVP race reminds me of the year Rose won: Bron has a better year statistically, but a point guard has solid stats and a better team record. Tony winning isn’t out of the question if the Spurs get to 63+ wins.

  • Young A

    Vinny Del Negro WILL hold lob city back come playoff time, which is a huge shame honestly.

  • spit hot fiyah

    not long ago, but seems like very long ago

  • Caboose

    *Has held

  • theDankerNuggets

    depends on genius in what instance, if your comparing their coaching knowledge strictly to physics then yes a good comparison

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i was speaking in terms of IQ. – which we don’t actually know of from either, but we can speculate that Eistein was in a different world of intelligence. – at least you can understand why i speculate that to be true right? because i am not actually trying to be completely right, i’m just tryna make a point.

  • http://twitter.com/thursti_tyht Thurstian Tsui

    Yeah but this year Lebron just hit another level with the whole finally taking good shots thing

  • LakeShow

    That’s crazy he has MVP consideration and is underrated.

  • oai9b3

    Yea but lebron was receiving a lot of heat for leaving cleveland so its a lot different

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Junior-Taylor/100003121138419 Junior Taylor

    I don’t know how anyone can consider the Clipps a legit contender when Vinny Del Negro is their coach and their offense is about as imaginative as a middle school squad.

  • Caboose

    Haha I see what you did there.

  • Redd

    Yesterday was the worst I’ve seen our fans at. Soon as guys started cheering for Lebron’s injury I stopped caring if we won. Good thing we lost, those idiots cheering deserved it.

  • Dutch Rich

    In approximately 4 years your little girl will put that in perspective for you.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i am not that old. i did grow up on Dr. Suess. lol

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    loooool

  • Dutch Rich

    You and most everybody else 62 yrs and younger. Dr. Seuss is awesome and Vinnie DelNegro is……well…just Vinnie DelNegro. Lol

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i didn’t say it’s like putting Einstein up against Dr Suess in a cool contest.

  • Dutch Rich

    Just to keep things in perspective here.
    “We’re not that good and they’re not that bad.” — Spurs coach Gregg Popovich

  • theDankerNuggets

    yeah I understand and I get your point haha I’m just saying there there are a lot of ways to measure genius, so I didn’t like your using Dr. Suess as an example of non-genius (especially compared to Vinny who has no imagination in means of coaching haha)

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    not really….i was talking about the literal labeling of the word “genius” as it is used “scientifically” to describe intelligence.

    .

    Genius: a person having an extraordinarily high intelligence rating on a psychological test, as an IQ above140.

  • playa

    agree,but Oklahoma’s offense is just as brutal,maybe even worse,luckily for them they have talents like Durant and Westy ,but man sometimes they have NO IDEA what they are doing out there,just really sad to watch

  • Dutch Rich

    This is classic mathematician talking to artist. We got geniuses too you know! Lol

  • Slick Ric

    For CP3 to be the best PG in the game, he sure does get outplayed a lot by the top tier talent…..D-will, D-Rose and now TP.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Are you confusing imagination and inteigence?

  • Dutch Rich

    You know a lot for a young man but not everything is comprehensible within your realm.
    Perhaps you’re confusing the left side of the brain with the right side? Your people have discovered that there is such a radical distinction.

  • Dutch Rich

    I totally agree young grasshopper!

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    You are assuming a lot old man. I bet you think you know what side of my keyboard the mouse is on? Whoever “my people” are…. .
    “The combination of extraordinary intelligence and a vivid imagination is the measure of true genius” ™ .
    Lol – no, I just meant the literal definition of genius when I said it. And have been defending that stance ever since. The quote above is how I feel. Which it would be hard to argue anyone as more of a genius than Einstein there. Either.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Wait, were you assuming I’m right handed?

  • Dutch Rich

    I was referring to the part in between parenthesis, you evil genius! Lol

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Haha I know but I was seriously wondering if that’s what you meant by “my people”?

  • retloc

    I have an iq over 140, and by no means do I consider myself a genius, and dr suess was definitely a genius, albeit in a different field than einstein. I just test well. To say that having an affinity for one thing and not another is the difference between being a genius or being joe schmo is ridiculous.

  • retloc

    What about weird al yankovic, is he a genius? He was his schools valedictorian, and by all accounts is a very intelligent man. He chooses to devote his energy to artistic endeavors, much the same way dr suess did. To be able to have such universal appeal, such as dr suess, takes true genius. Artistic people are typically quite intelligent, and use their intellect to connect. Einstein killed people when you get right down to it. Smart enough to annihilate mankind

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    You have taken an official IQ test? And you “test well”? It’s not something you can study for. I don’t understand how well you testing well really applies to an IQ test? .
    And if you score over 140 that is how you are labeled. So whether you consider yourself so or not is kind of irrelevant.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Intelligence and Education are completely different.

  • retloc

    Yeah I test well, scored perfect on act when I had been sitting in jail for two weeks leading up to it. Post high schools on the sats since the first time I took them, I think it was fifth grade. And I was always a huge fuckoff, I just had the ability to test well and retain information, quiz bowl champion etcetera. That’s neither here nor there though, im just saying that dr suess is a genius, maybe not by the literal definition. And if I was a genius I would think I would have some clue what im doing with my life by now, the only things that appeal to me are artistic endeavors, or helping mankind. Which, most artistic pursuits do help mankind to some extent, by connecting all the lost units. Anyway, this became another rant, thanks for the reply. I only have wifi, so this is like my only connection to the world

  • retloc

    Nowhere did I confuse the two. Einstein for all his intelligence helped create the atom bomb. That was a real genius move.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    You should look up information on intelligent people. You would be surprised how much you have in common with the typical “genius” – .
    What IQ test did you take? And have you looked into Mensa? You could probably find other people in similar situations to yourself going that route.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    You just mentioned Weird Al Yankovic’s education like that signifies intelligence. You implied it, basically. Just a confusing thing to say if that’s not what you were inferring…

  • rretloc

    Yeah no, I was told at too young of an age that I was probably a genius, honestly the iq test I took was 9 or ten years ago, and years of abuse has served to slow my mind, although im a firm believer in the theory that anything that’s ever been put in it is there to stay, its merely a matter of access. For me being told I was smarter than my peers when I was also a better athlete than my peers gave me a bit of a god complex. So I got expelled from school several times. It blew me away how much some people struggled to comprehend such simple concepts, and it still does. I always felt socially awkward, mostly because I saw how hard some people tried to fit in and be liked, when I didn’t give a flying rats ass and could be comfortable with any group. I used to consider my mind an assett, but now it seems like a liability, like why can’t I just shut it off. So I write poetry as much as I can to keep what little sanity remains. Not that that has anything to do with anything, but I’ve been at work for a week now and all the guys are already giving me the he’s a crazy bastard eyes already so I need to unload somewhere else

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    I don’t want to give you unsolicited advice or anything like that. But I do understand where you are coming from and have to just say If you get curious and bored Idk if you are or have ever been into philosophy and history, but there are concepts and famous people that I would assume you will be able to relate to and find “comfort” in. Not to intrude, I don’t mean to offend you if you’ve already done these things.

  • retloc

    Even in our limited interaction you should know I don’t take offense easily, I think the last time we went back and forth there were several others taking offense, but I never did. I was taken aback by you calling me ignorant, but you clarified that you were only referring to the matter at hand. I digest books, my favorite class in college was moral philosophy, and I’ve been debating going back to school for psychiatry/psychology with an emphasis on philosophy as well. At one time I thought I wanted to be a writer, but I have ahard time not making my point in the first sentence, I feel everything I am emanates, if tha5 makes any sense. That’s why I get down with poetry. Insane depressing poetry. Don’t really like reading it though. Big fan of kant and neitzche to a degree, and others im not going to delve into the abyss to try and remember. The human mind fascinates me to no end. I realize now how big of an affect decisions I made as a child have had on my life as an adult. I welcome advice from anyone and everyone, even if I don’t agree in principle there is knowledge to be gleaned. Sorry it took so long to respond I had to wash the stink off and get my bones warm. Outdoors for 12 hours in the alaska wind gets that chill in deep

    It’s pretty late for me right now and I’m doing this from my phone, but if you have never, the teachings of Confucius, I think would provide a fresh perspective for you if you haven’t studied them.

    Alright man I understand what your sayin, it’s not a big deal to me you can get more specific to prove a point, I just wanted to put out there that I didn’t like Dr. Suess as an example of non-genius
