“That pass is, uh — is uhhhh…” (h/t: Matt McHale): The Celtics’ shot selection can look very weird on a chart. It can make you wonder how in hell they win.

The Bulls beat the Wizards 103-77 like a good team should be stomping on a bad team.

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: December 30, 2010
The Heat’s (25-9) 16-game streak of keeping opponents under 100 pts was snapped by the Rockets (15-16), but Miami reacted to the fast pace of the 102-possession game winning 125-119 in the only game I watched last night. Very fun game to watch where Dwyane Wade had his second straight 40-point performace, scoring 45 on... Read more »
