Danilo Gallinari

Picture from ESPN.com

Danilo Gallinari the 24 years old italian good-looking guy sank seven 3 pointers and dropped a career night 39 points.

He’s the most fecund player of the night with 39 units.

The Mavericks registered their fifth straight loss. Defense is their big issue.

Andre Iguodala, the versatile combo guard-forward was pretty efficient with 20 points. He connected 4 field goal from long-range.

Kenneth Faried , the monster forward had an other double double with 11 points and a game-high 19 rebounds to clean the glass.

The Arc was the private space of Denver

Denver made 12 of 28 from behind the arc.  Mavs were clumsy making only 5 of 25.

Nowitzki thinks Danilo is a great player.

“He was one of the best players in the game,” Gallinari, a 6-foot-10 forward from Italy, said of the 7-foot Nowitzki from Germany. “So you always try to follow and learn from the best.

Timberwolves 99 , Thunder 93

The Thunder win streak of 12 wins  is over.

The Thunder was really is hot in their last contests. The Thunder stormed into Target Center having the longest winning streak since the team moved to Oklahoma City, trouncing opponents by an average of 14.2 points per game. What a great performance !

But every streak has an end. Kevin Durant 33 points and Russel Westbrook 30 points were not enough , the best players of the runner-up team the last season did not success to hold off Minnesota yesterday in Target Center.

The last defeat for Thunder was vs Boston on November 23rd.

The Wolves 13-11 snapped the Thunder’s 12 game winning streak, topping them thanks to a good balanced production.

Kevin Love had a solid game , with 11 rebounds , seven assists  to go with 28 points. The Center , Nikola Pekovic added 24 points and 10 rebounds. Timberwolves outscored Thunder in assists production 2717  . Moreover Minnesota bench production (22) was clearly better than Thunder bench production (7).

Timberwolves frontcourt handed by K.Love and N.Pekovic exploded for 52 points and 21 rebounds.

Timberwolves Barea Ba_Hans

J.J Barea coming of the bench,18 points,was the factor X in this contest as he put the Wolves on his back. He dropped 14 points in just  over four minutes and gave Minnesota an 11 point lead with 5:26 to play.

He scored 12 points in a row to frustrate Kevin Durant and W.Westbrook.

The good surprise came from Minnesota rookie guard Alexey Shved who had another strong all-around game.

He triggered Minnesota’s quick start with six assists in the first period and he finished with a season-high 12 assists to go with his 12 points and seven rebounds.

GUILLAUME

The wind city with some of the nation’s toughest, if ineffective guns control laws, got a bit more legislation around a basketball game Tuesday night at United Center, the land of the Chicago Bulls highlighted by Michael Jordan in the 1990’s.

Now, He will not ever use imaginary firearms that he’d been using the past few seasons to celebrate successful  shoots after Friday’s events in Newtown, Conn, which have created chaos and sadness in USA.

Now let’s recap the match.

Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer dropped 21 points apiece, and the Chicago Bulls topped the Boston Celtics 100-89 on Tuesday night in a turmoil situation.

The French Center raised in New York and double Champion NCAA with Gators of Florida posted the second triple-double of his full career against the eternal old foes the Boston Celtics.

He dropped 11 points, pulled down 13 rebounds, his trademark, and was pretty unselfish with 10 assists to offer easy and open baskets for his teammates.

In this game Noah was careful with his outside shoots; he hit four of his seven field goal attempts and was perfect behind the free throw line with three of three. Joakim Noah with a perfect work ethic continues to improve year after year his shooting ability.

Noah was one of the top performers of this classic game against the C’s. Ranjo Rondo the best delivery man in the league with almost 13 assists per game was below of his average. He was limited in this match. He was not able to share the ball like he always did to make Celtics players shine.

Rajon is asking questions about his team and how to pace the game vs Chicago.

He finished with only 8 assists (5 in the first corner and only 3 after the 1st quarter), which is a bad performance to pace Celtics. He collected 26 points, but was a bit alone to manage Bulls. Paul Pierce added only 16 points to help his team to stay in the game.

Chicago chemistry was clearly better than Celtics chemistry as Bulls passed out 28 assists whereas Celtics only 18. 40% of the Celtics’ assists were obtained by the point guard Rondo.

The Bulls bench outscored Celtics production 37 -16. Our veteran friend Nate Robinson erupted for 18 points off the bench, hitting five 3-pointers, including some fourth-quarter buckets. Robinson singlehandedly trounced Boston’s entire bench (16 points)

Is Rajon Rondo slowing down his production ?

Rajon Rondo failed to record double-digit assists for the 2nd consecutive game tonight. This is a bad news for Celtics fans.

It’s the first time he’s failed to record double-digit assists in consecutive games since March 7-9 of last season.

Celtics need clearly double-digit production made by Rajon Rondo.

This night was historic for Noah.

Noah with his outstanding performance enters in the history of the Bulls. He joins another epic boy with his triple double , as Dennis Rodman, the toughest guy that I have ever seen in the NBA , on January 16 , 1996 vs the 76ers was the last primary Bulls frontcourt competitor to post a triple double in a game.

Rockets-Jeremy-Lin-225x300 (1)

Jeremy Lin and James Harden, the two Rockets J collected 50 points on 18 for 33 shooting.

The Rockets secured a second win this season vs The Knicks 109 96.

J.Lin , the former star rising Knicks, dropped 22 points and delivered 8 assists at Madison Square Garden, while James Harden scored 28 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to avoid  Knicks’s second chance.

The Rockets backcourt was truly in the game whereas J.Kidd and R.Felton were stunned by Rockets guards as they contributed for only 19 points on 9 for 27 shooting.

Lin who is 17,5 PPG against  BIG APPLE  has beaten twice this season New York by a combined 41 points.

Lin reached the 20-point plateau for the third time this season.

We want to see more. Lin the 3rd Harvard student since 1947 in the NBA, after Saul Mariaschin and Ed Smith, needs to have more impact.
