JR go BOOM
The Spurs came to town and got thrashed by the Knickerbockers. Probably had something to do with the Spurs playing their 4th in 5 nights, but credit to the Knicks for putting them down after some lackluster performances lately. JR has been going HAMM all year, and is no stranger to sick reverse jams. Looks like that commitment to not partying and getting as many tattoos as possible is paying off.
Also, I know I'm a day late, but I'd be remiss to not mention this action from two nights ago:
Blake played one of the worst games of his career, Clips lose their second straight after going 17-0, and he nails the side of the backboard from the supposed easiest shot in basketball. All really shitty things to be sure. But nothing compares to Golden State's bench mocking him. I could watch that all day long. For how much fake tough guy mean-mugging Blake does, it's good to see him get some comeuppance.
Also, GS is a fun team to watch and Steph Curry has a purrrrty jump shot. Random fact from Chris Palmer: First 200 games: Steph Curry 447 threes, 44%; Ray Allen 310, 37%
