oh Atlanta "going far" as i predicted, just in wrong direction :) ...they are among worst form teams currently and look as not-playoffs material, but had row of games against better opponents recently... don't know, they looked alright and believe in them.

Clippers best form, Jackson found rhytm, George like medieval hero, Phoenix as well in form with Paul having among best percents without making many shots - so another west final next year :) GSW is somehow contender and team with best score, but if Curry stays healthy for fun, i like snipers like him and players with steady hand if you need one in more important games than these.

while Miami going down in the east after good start.... (Joker fought them like Godzilla :) - alright he was attacked first this time but he has some aggression problems, he was ejected while playing for national team too, but good player and doesn't slap blacks only if in right mindset he'll slap anyone and playing for anyone) certainly our best center and 3 pts scorer now but hardly will play much for representation, or he will as i'm bad predicter.... Harden? twice went above 20 whole season :yes but working like machine and running - he compensate lack of talent with work rate and giving all :) Harden is alright (but Durant doesn't give ball to anyone), just fun player i believe in, like his dribbles when he even dribbles himself - and far from finished :)

funny how things turn around in few weeks so i'll not comment, like many things in America it is often circus and fun to watch, but maybe i come back only next year during p-offs, if alive... nothing interesting in other sports to comment, we play Portugal in 2 days and winner goes to WC - battle of Ronaldo vs Mitar, best scorer in English second league :) we can't win i'd say but not important if we don't, because we are not so good in football. Irish played alright, thumbs up, like Scots they mostly care for fair-play...

incredible result and win, even i did not expect it it... do not cry Ronaldo - in company of Sweden, Switzerland (Italy will win), Finland/Ukraine, Wales/Czech, Scotland, Turkey/Norway, Russia, Poland and Northern Macedon it is obviously you will grab one of the remaining places :yes

if you didn't watch it - Mitar or as English call him Mitro scored in 90. minute for win, to unimportant to post video :) Remebered Scottish jokes I mentioned - well after all we did send Ronaldo your way, so consider potential rivals now :lol good luck to Portugal mostly fair game no simulating nor "stealing time", think not so hard rivals for them... glad for our coach Piksi of Japan, probably our best/most skilled player (as Serb) in history, imo and something I did not ever see as playing with 3 strikers in final minutes :yes (it was only ligical in situation, though)

generally nice sport day, even unexpectedly saw Ivon in national dress in some 2023 championship qualifications i did not even know are due before WC quals i talked about. We won against Croatia and already practically sealed EC place potentially though it was only first, but "toughest" game... Ivon wasn't best :) one player scored incredible 33 points for female basket (not Tina either). have fun all, lots of laugh today at least in sport sense - maybe i'll stay up to watch Atlanta-Milwaukee (midnight) to complete rarely fun day, post for fun as always...

I mean i like Trinchieri, he led our local club before corona and was able to fight for regional league title and maybe even Euro cup top as we played good before season was abandoned, but Bayern is not that level... :) thanks for info about his adventures, Para.

since you mentioned them - do not follow moto-sport much, but must comment because i expected at least goal from you.... Italy, Italy what did you do after last summer. England comes to small state on your soil and score 10 goals, you go to "their isles" to bigger "state" and can't score once. Doesn't matter, it is worse for them - my condolences to eventual our Italian members (i'm joker and write about all things) - than for me financially and isles media will even write about their fans, already started :lol (Italians are not bad but small minority thinks how they are whiter than anyone, what Irish in America did not accept historically)).... politics and British comments to their press and fans, not my job and interest (Italians are our pals, we joke among each other always) - as final football comment, good luck to second echelon of continental football, for us continetal powers no group nor rival is problem and we ususally go to competitions from first place :lol in that sense, good luck to Italy, Portugal..... and Scotland, and all troubled. We miss you there, but there is no room for all, only elite in Qatar ;

well, jokes aside Joker can jump and dunk :) as seen in these short h-lights from last game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5T9EjKXNlDs

there is much negativism and questioning from American fans that i felt need to post one video of the man and dunk included :) He does it rarely indeed... yeah, not on level with other types of players and i gues Paul would throw a ball through his legs sometimes :) or he would lose 1on1 with George or distance shots with Durant or Curry, but he is heavy weight and other type so some credit, we call him "fatty"... (but Dončić is nearing that status more)) or "balavi" :) but if he slap us.....

not sure if internet users are always Americans, sometimes people are just trolling, jealousy from the region or diaspora from some people around us, must be said because it is present ; but Denver depends much on him, visible last night when coach rested him during start of last quarter while result was egal or advantage - without him they fell behind and when he got back lots of balls went to him and they couldn't level again... we had many good players in last decades so i can't rate say he is rare but probably top 5 in our history... glad i looked a bit at NBA after long pause, funny enough i didn't know how he plays at all and only saw some mediocre national team plays... yes, yes he deserves call to the team :lol but if we can't beat them all in Europe without him, he will not help much :p well, enough about Joker for now as giving some credit but i'm mostly on occasional to watch Harden dribbles ;

here's one (for fun and in lack of any life) untypical "NBA score" in continental basket: Serbia-Latvia 101:100 :) no videos but was "fun" to watch....

if you are US reader (most are here) over here games are 8 mins shorter and competition in question is WC qualifications... when football WC quals are due everything stops, money stops, clubs "suffer" - but when basketball WC quals are due "rogue" EL have games in same time as qualification matches... FIBA and Euroleague are in conflict, btw and it shows importance and "popularity" i.e. difference among two sports i like the most. (NBA is not important as players would not fly over such distances and disturbances for games anyway)

but it ended "well" and with funny score for report. too bad people of "renomme", like our coach for example, can suffer some loses and are forced to play with "anonimses" ;) in what once were important competitions... but he started with most funny and spectacular "NBA style" win. but new times are here, basketball among first to loose battle i'm afraid, football will follow don't doubt it... brave new world where rich is rich and bench is bench :) pardon for style...

Latvia is old basket power, they had gold interwar period as well as Egypt once :) (and one of their "national poets" fought in our country in 1870s - btw historical note of respect towards suvh tiny nation)).... if just imagine if Porzingis was there for them and we played like this, not nice thought :lol have fun, really laughed at something unexpected - if you follow basket i'm sure there will be video with highlights soon online, one Latvian player scored fantastic 33 points :yes

thanks Para... wasn't that entertaining for something at that "early" stage - it is not early if you drop out and miss competition what is nearly possible for all, for us having at least 1 WC title we can claim as own, rest were in commie collective. it would be too early - and isn't Latvian basket at some visible rise, respect for country that and rising level of play (but shrinking nation as many))

glad you are - as clear not primarily - but obviously interested in basket :yes Must say that I don't understand why basket was never popular among some countries in north-western corner of Europe (Germany some mild exception)... i mean it is not funny and dubious sport often depending on referees and phisical contact unseen by spectators but very clean and fast-paced sport and if played with skilled and steady hand players can be nice to watch (like NBA if players take game seriously, for example). Plus northerners are tall persons on average (like us Scyths among tallest on planet), they like handball and team sports etc. Baltics (true ones, minus Estonians for now) liked it from eraly, other exception. But basket never left some roots there even if "Anglo-Sexon" (as waterpolo and else)..... but anyway that's how it is, just wondering aloud in serious tone not asking. same in female section where southern Europeans dominate, except us which even if placed among southern Europeans by UN, belong to very tall - i'd say even superior/master :lol - branch... just joking about last sentence considering our forum but it is funny how average Serb or Spaniard would always put the ball through some Neverlander or Swedish legs ; ...not German, they are solid :)

humor aside, to come back to my "revolt" towards EL and "money sports" in general... mentioned it to Randowe in football league last year, but you must understand i'm fighting for old values in sport and small man. Hence, Olympics and representations are where we can beat all of you, not silly clubs and feudal leagues ; And also hypocrisy about fans and poor "few hundred euros" spectators while sportists millioners are often beaten with blood, pushed like savages, they bite eachother and acussed of sexual misbehavior, euphemism :) (with respect to James, best part of Lakers, who was inspiration for bloodbath)) so yeah, like those micro Latvians and Slovenians when they do it sometimes with passion not for money... we must remember olympian spirits, but not as Greeks :lol (who are hitting lows in team sports currently)

that's normal things all sport followers understand - back to some fun... could be interesting evening in the NBA since it is friday, maybe even for quarter or two. Sadly most interesting games are too late... Memphis-Atlanta maybe, and only because Atlanta had super form at home and now travels to unpredictable team (both are it seems) Maybe + points in any way, but maybe not ;) as "interesting" games often disappoint...

have fun Para, my loyal reader :) you are like my Goethe/Grim and i'm your Vuk....

following some "mickey mouse cup" quals (from above sadly) and posting for fun...

how easy is to scare bookmakers on Latvian example... after few words about rise of their basket game level (which is true) suddenly they were (bu them) considered as greatest favorites of today and there wasn't even "chance" that Slovakia will lose by less than 15-20 or similar by them... while on half-time it is only half point advantage over Slovakia :) And so, even in sociological level if you don't bet much like me, looking at odds and bookmakers offers is interesting and how sometimes they scare people ; ...Latvia should win because if it doesn't we, as we say, "have sex with a hedgehog" and can finish last in group :lol just joking, though Belgium defeated us but that was clearly irregular victory for them - we were in constant lead and in last quarter suddenly Belgians stopped the game "due to technical problems with light" (while there was enough light to beat them even with one eye) and paff! suddenly after resume we were not able to score anymore and Belgium won :lol tricks, old tricks :) ....just joking, we play some amoteurish team at this stage and Belgium won deservedly...

made mistake above - we have at least 2 (not 1 as I said) WC title we can claim as own (as Serbia and Montenegro, where most important players and scorers were Serbian, btw) small mistake. But times changed and it is hardly to repeat in near future, possibly but if it does alright... btw, glad i demonstrated how i have "game in small finger" (one can find the post above with date) when I said how "Lakers are in trouble" during the first round of last p-offs vs Phoenix (while they still had a chance to go through) and rest is hiostory... today whole America hardly consider Lakers as main favs even this year ;) have fun - of course there is always something to comment about basket and NBA season but i will finish this block and presence for now with dose of humor about WC primarily... good luck to our coach btw nicknamed "Curry" even before Curry was born, but he has some tough job in changed world and basket balance of power...

...i'm in "situation", don't play much lately, only few time for some dark rpg in lovely bloody dungeons, but Para not to be alone in pub, comment as hello...

just seen results today, basket and football, and as homage to last year bundesliga thread i've participated in as end - wonder what Wolfsburg team eats lately, so trashy :lol and at moment they looked like will be having solid season, now fight for survival almost. Today around 5 pm when i looked at sport events today, was even ready to say that it is time for them to win, but concentrated mainly on stinky-rogue :) EL basket, all who shouldhave indeed won there, easy 5 games...

Atlanta (NBA) had fame as good host team this year and reached finals even but now lost 5 home games in a row, reminds of Wolfsburg. seen results and especially last night against Houston was amazing/hurtful drop in last quart after constant lead in game.... Young is often near 30+ anyway, good news :) was sure they will make to first 6 in the east (maybe they will, still except first 3 plenty of room). be greeted Para in pub and elsewhere, i'm done...

2974 - A MAGIC NUMBER - STEPHEN CURRY BREAKS THE ALL-TIME 3 POINT RECORD!
When the NBA record belonged to him alone, Steph Curry threw his arms up and patted his chest. Seconds later, the Golden State Warriors took a timeout to celebrate the historic moment of their most important player - and the first TV commercial during the game interruption was also dedicated solely to the success of the 33-year-old basketball superstar. The three-pointer to make it 12-10 on Tuesday night (local time) was number 2974 in the career of the much-loved point guard. "That number means a lot to me," Curry told TV station TNT. "I even have it on my shoes." No one in NBA history has hit from beyond the three-point line as often as he has - and the 75th season of the world's strongest basketball league is currently underway.
By the end of his Golden State Warriors' 105-96 win over the New York Knicks, Curry had extended the record to 2977 and had his picture taken with former record holders Ray Allen and Reggie Miller. "To accomplish that here at Madison Square Garden is special. I can't tell you how honored I am because of the reaction here away from home to this milestone," Curry said. "It's a very, very special night."

The crowd at the legendary Manhattan venue, though a majority of them Knicks fans, celebrated Curry as if he were one of their own. In doing so, they paid him the respect he deserved for an already unprecedented career. What Michael Jordan did for the pioneering dunk and Dirk Nowitzki for the one-legged fadeaway, the three-time NBA champion and twice voted Most Valuable Player of the season has done for the three-pointer. In Curry's first NBA season, 2009-10, there was an average of 18.1 three-point attempts in an NBA game - this season that figure is 35.4 per team. "He's revolutionized the way the game is played," NBA boss Adam Silver said.

The previous record holder Allen, who still congratulated Curry with a hug on the court during the timeout, had replaced Miller ten years ago and needed for his yield in the end 1300 games. Curry now moved to the top of the leaderboard after just 789 NBA games. "I'm curious to see where the record stands once he gets to 1300 games. He's got four, five, six years left. That record will never be broken," predicted TV pundit and NBA icon Shaquille O'Neal. Even the day before, Dirk Nowitzki had said, "I don't think there's anyone in sight who can break his record."

LeBron James, Chris Paul, Magic Johnson - current and former NBA stars posted congratulations on social media and rejoiced over the milestone of a man who is more popular than almost any other athlete in his class.

Besides his humble nature and ability to not take himself too seriously, it's also because Curry's body doesn't give him an extraordinary advantage. Not everyone can dunk; it's all about height and jumping power. But passing and throwing - in theory, anyone can learn to do that.

In a sport where quite a few stars are well above the two-meter mark, Curry is so inconspicuous at 1.88 meters that most universities didn't even want to offer the son of a former NBA pro a scholarship. After high school, the unassuming young talent received only one offer from the highest category: from Davidson College in North Carolina. His coach Bob McKillop took Curry under his wing at the time - and was among the spectators at Madison Square Garden 15 years later when Curry made basketball history. (dpa/ska)

MC and NY in advance :yes

reading some sport flash today found "news" and words from Italian head of BA signor Petrucci :) where he talked about Euroleague and I find it very funny that he almost repeated my words and that it is strange that footballers play WC quals in best possible lineups while basket is different... not to repeat and not so important anyway to me, but find funny that his words are 90% similar to mine, welcome to the new era signor Petrucci

that's funny but unavoidable i'm afraid part today, if anyone wants some NBA fun - today quite few "morning" games (for America) from 18 hours CE time till evening/night - sadly maybe most interesting is 2 past midnight. why so as it is bad Lakers versus Harden-only Brooklyn, well because i expect that to be fun, should be and Lakers should fight for own honor against team without main star, maybe they even have chance, but doubtful.... sociologically, see that bookmakers expect Harden to explode but i also doubt that considering that team was out of action for some time (at least he is rested and he eaten well)). James will have to prove some things but his team will lose, as usual :)

that's too late anyway, other games are NY vs Atlanta without Young (they lost very much but then unexpectedly won against complete team Philadelphia so...), Milwaukee-Boston and doable and also probably fun Phoenix-Golden state in 23 h. As i say to some (and is visible why) betting on NBA is not advised only eventual players points and only for fun... Giannis will maybe play, Phoenix complete, Lakers without Davis and Brooklyn without Durant so just fun. Have fun in sport sense only if you have slightest interest in their league, good chance to see some early games on this holiday in many parts of the world.... Holiday? from Milwaukee? who mentioned him? well, if Giannis is back maybe he will not have such numbers as in previous games...... :lol

......as said i personally do not believe much in betting and never put some money in it sometimes it just raise interest in game i watch (or watch with one eye doing other things) if you are ven close to guess it right, but as i say to some if you listen to me you can profit. For example, if you would've put a house and wife on my advices from yesterday (i.e. Lakers losing and James going over or Holiday under) you could earn 2-3 houses and 2-3 wives and call yourself a sultan :)

must say here for the end - and as said there is always something to comment in circus leagues almost daily, but i finish - that, while betting against Lakers is easy, i felt some sort of sorry to James (while it should be reverse and he should feel sorry for me looking at my money and white junk status)) as he is playing decently for his age and player status, seeing him going disappointed towards restroom after the game... it is the team he plays in, not his fault. :)

not superb game, but with a intense twist, after 20+ down Lakers managed to level 115-115 in the last minute, but then lost to Harden 122-115 or 17, unimportant... Harden exploded after all, but not from too much food as we his fans like to joke, but hand on heart he deserved ejection for his foul was obvious intention.... but you never know with his dribbles, maybe was a dribble with elbow and uper hand into oponents intimate parts and stomach, and then ball goes.... blah, blah, blah.... Harden and James are future of the league, playing like boys :)

NINE-DARTER! GERWYN PRICE STRIKES PERFECTION AT THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!

... but it didn't help him, as he was still eliminated in the quarterfinals against Michael Smith. It was a great match! Good advertisement for darts :yes .

today our sport sites are I see now full of headlines about Đoković (i.e. Djokovic from tennis) being "arrested" in Australia i.e. Melbourne after arrival, due to govt not recognizing his visa and probably medical papers as true background (he wasn't vaccinated) etc. etc. etc.... Scandal, such words etc. no idea about situation and if treated bad or rough it is scandal as many sportists of name do not get deserved treatement even after violent acts or after rape allegations, but all will be resolved without much trouble even if he is sent home as illegal migrant :lol police guard is not bad thing per se, as i heard that AUS police can actually let him in against goverment decision if they give "green light"...

however I look at things from different angle - while not some tennis fan - and must say that Novak was a bit naive, as informed and knowledgeable man, he should have known what politicians in that country think and avoid getting there at all... "Blamage" is not worth the titles and in reverse. You simply pause playing or do not visit places if you do not want to do something (like me not going for eternal shots, my decision).... must say it simply would be stupid to think it is about making room for Rafael Nadal (fine man, never said anything extreme and will surely comment) - doesn't matter what our sites write about some Australian govt "baba" prefering Rafa as sexier Latino versus Scyth :lol - because there is no guarantee that he is even in form or good enough in this moment :) to win some big tourny, same for Novak it is almost like they just have to show somewhere to win it... doesn't matter how comptitive you are, dignity on first place and there was already word about not letting some few months ago, so he could avoid being in focus and "criminalised" at all by own decision to skip Aborigine open :) ... for those believing in conspiracies, maybe it is all scheme to force all 3 to finally retire with number of titles they are at now and give chance to some young (Russians by origin mostly)) to win some trophies... good luck to Đolo in future tournaments, but could have skiped it as could feel "not welcome" sign somewhere around months ago.... nothing against Australia, fine blondes and all we are pals from long ago just people comment too political sometimes so i joked about Aborigines and "babas", which is not joke at all.... (yeah i'm also sitting in land taken from Romans some 1500 years ago)

since posted to comment about sport news from "white sport" - i'll go back to one which is mostly "black" :) i.e. NBA - it IS safe to say now that Chicago is solid team and could be that "new" from the east :yes De Rozan brought some quality and exp, our Vučević fitted in solidly as well, Zack scorer as is if all stay healthy... but it is hard to say are they really there to reach final. well, in the west i already mentioned Memphis on the start of the season without expecting they will be pleasant surprise so far... Lebron James had 7 of 8 over 30 points lately, but it is time for me to stop forcing him for 10 euros gains :) have fun if you can make something out of my advices from that league...

Nowitzki legend :yes

... that is unpleasant really. i'm free and use time for some things i do sometimes (rarely so don't believe i'm informed about your situation)) like reading some Scottish pro-independence papers, like to be informed about world and all sensibilities, at least a bit. (and i like Scotland, of course - how could i forget our general McIver or old MacEnsie who owned one of the today "elite" parts of the city - he left Serbia eventually wanting to die in Scotland and said that are males are "godless and like to drink more than Scots"))

namely, found article there about some English politician - Nigel Farage, probably unpopular in Scotland hence he is in press - by Scottish girl article writer "expressing sympathy" for Novak on some BBC radio - while he mentioned it only shortly like this (their line): "Farage explained that he felt “a bit sorry for the guy”, calling it “pretty rich” for him to be kept in a hotel without his wallet and phone until his hearing on Monday..."

I beg "Đolo" to take the situation back in own hands, some might resurrect Adolf just to comment shortly and "express sympathy" :) And to leave the country by own wish what he is free to do.... can't imagine how would tournament - which should be about sport - look like even if AUS structures give him "pass", it is already in bade taste fabricated hostilities and who knows what, personally would never play there, while sport Australia was realistic and understood that treatment is bad and "political"...... it is, btw, not about vax or anti-vax as Novak is not leading any campaigns, it is his decision. I for example got vaccines among first on planet (even from "unpopular" country) wasn't afraid of anything, but stopped thinking much when i heard that few people (with even other vacc types) not only had coronavirus but also spread it to their family members, although fully vaxed. So i don't do any campaigns...

really Đolo why you let them connect you with anyone they dislike.... it wouldn't happen to Federer - Federer would not be there ;) .... send him via both to Lesbos already and finish it :) it already ain't sport and atmosphere is bad, they will hurt you further. last comment and good luck on other tournaments and "record ambitions".... would be fun if they play and both he and Nadal out in first round :)

I am happy that after many years of failures there is once again a team that represents the city of Chemnitz in one of the major German sports leagues. I am curious to see whether they can maintain this level until the end of the season.

This game was very exciting. With 4 minutes to go, Chemnitz was down by 11 points. With a terrific 15:3 run, they were still able to turn the game around and win by one point.

Rams vs. Buccaneers Divisional Round Highlights | NFL 2021

Last year's champion loses in Divisional Round. Tom Brady must continue to wait for his 8th Super Bowl ring ... or will end his career.
Is the path to a second championship now clear for Patrick Mahomes / Kansas City Chiefs? It looks good ...

It was a crazy game. Already after the first minutes i had the feeling the Buccaneers would loose. Brady got not much protection from his offensive line, which was strange to see because the offensive line looked very good this season.
It became a close game only because the Rams had so many turnovers.
I hope Brady continues with Tampa Bay.
