Rose, Boozer Double-Double Through the Wolves

Rose, Boozer Double-Double Through the Wolves
The East-leading Bulls dominated a carelessly bad Timberwolves squad 108-90 in Minnesota to keep a 2.5 game lead over the Celtics and Heat. The Bulls (54-20) lead by as much as 26 in their 108-91rout over the Timberwolves (17-58) in Minnesota on Wednesday to extend their lead over the Celtics (51-22) by a half-game to... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: March 14, 2011 -- Boozer/MJ Art, Spurs Catchy-Shootiness Over Heat, More Karl on 'Melo's _efense
Awesome artwork by Dustin Watson. His current project is doing 30 illustrations over 30 days — one player from each NBA team. Day #13, he did Carlos Boozer and posted it at “Blog-a-Bull”: Even more awesome artwork by Ziarekenya Smith. Dan Devine noted that this has been around for a while, but until his post I hadn’t...

Catch n' Shoot: March 8, 2011 -- Winning Rose, Misty-Eyed Heatles, Clutchiness, SVG on 'Stern der Führer'

Catch n' Shoot: March 8, 2011 -- Winning Rose, Misty-Eyed Heatles, Clutchiness, SVG on 'Stern der Führer'
Derrick Rose, winning: True Shooting Percentage carries a very low margin of error. Of course, no metric is without error, but I’m not sure any commonly accepted have a wider margin of error than human eyes and brains. Not saying it’s the argument, but Rose’s .TS% ranked in the 70s among qualified leaders and in... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: March 3, 2011 -- Durant 'Out for the Year,' More Than a Rose Text to LeBron, Analytics-Scouting False Dichotomy, Grizzlies' Odd Defensive Efficiency

Catch n' Shoot: March 3, 2011 -- Durant 'Out for the Year,' More Than a Rose Text to LeBron, Analytics-Scouting False Dichotomy, Grizzlies' Odd Defensive Efficiency
Kevin Durant says he’s “out for the year” after spraining his ankle: To which he quick followed up: “No, just playing. It’s just a little tweak. I did it before. I’ve just got to see how it feels in the morning and hopefully I’m ready to go.” Lee Jenkins’ profile on Derrick Rose at SI... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: February 28, 2011 -- Sterling's Racial Ignorance Hits New Level, Buyouts, Kendrick's Joylessness
How Derrick Rose compares in this season’s matchups against the best PGs. Why is Jason Kidd included, but not Steve Nash? That was an interesting game. That Phoenix game made me realize this team was the truth. Matt McHale has the Bulls 29th in his Powerless Rankings. Clippers advertised a special offer at the L.A.... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: February 27, 2011 -- Blake and Love's Record-Setting Double-Doubles, Lockout Looming, and Kendrick Sidelined

Catch n' Shoot: February 27, 2011 -- Blake and Love's Record-Setting Double-Doubles, Lockout Looming, and Kendrick Sidelined
Rip Hamilton would likely be a Bull right now if took Cleveland’s buyout in the Pistons-Cavs deal he sabotaged. Blake Griffin’s the eighth rookie in NBA history to amass 50 double-doubles. The Blakedevil has 22 games to hit Shaq’s 1992-93 record of 68. It’s doable. What’s uncontroversially doable is supplying amazing alley-oops like this without... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: January 4, 2010
150 players made the All-NBA Teams in the 1990s. I got 149 of them. Can you beat my score? The only player I missed was Anthony Mason, so there’s one for you…. Yes, Anthony Mason. One of my favorite moments in NBA on NBC history was this Christmas Day game between the Bulls and Knicks,... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: November 26, 2010
Is Jersey’s owner a racist? If not, he might wanna know the history of nooses and Black people in this country. Sebastian Pruiti on what I called an “OMGCOACHING!” moment of the Bulls-Suns game. Wednesday: Deron Williams had a 26-11 double-double to go with Al Jefferson’s 23-10 to lift the Jazz (11-5) past the Hornets... Read more »
