(10-4 last week, 101-59 for the season)
Bye teams: none

Blake Griffin Dribbling Like Point Guard Running The Fast Break

Check out Blake Griffin's ball skills.  The big man has some handles.  I'm not sure how he took it all the way to the basket, but he did.

The Clippers are goint to be tempted to go with a little point forward action.

Porzingis With The Two Handed Rejection Of Oladipo's Posterization Attempt

Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis had 6 blocks against the Magic last night.  None more impressive than the denial of Victor Oladipo's attempted postetization.

Porzingas went up with both arms extended and blocked the dunk attempt without swatting it.  The old school technique he used allowed him to come down with the ball after the block.

Smart play by the increasingly popular rookie.

Referee Slammed Down And Injured An Oilers Player

Nail Yakupov of the Edmonton Oilers was injured after a referee slammed him to the ice.  The referee was falling down following a face off and grabbed Yakupov on his way down.

Yakupov had to leave the game with a lower body injury.  How do you look your teammates in the eye after leaving a game due to a hit byba ref?

Call it a little hockey player karma, as I'm sure they get the best of the run ins with the refs.

On a side note isn't Nail a great hockey name.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Because nothing says thanks giving like an old white guy in a pilgrim costume wearing a turkey head.

Enjoy overeating and football.
