Wow, a pretty low scoring but good game between Chicago and LA, 36-32 for the bulls at half time, wonder if we'll see another last second game winner which seems to be the trend lately. Heat set to play the Warriors @ 7:30, I'm thinking this ones gonna be a low out lol.

Miami Vs New Orleans is an interesting matchup tonight. The Heat have struggled with fast PGs who can penetrate, and Chris Paul is one of the best. Let's go Heat!

New Orleans has struggled lately since their fast start. 3-7 in their last 10.

Boston won their 11th straight beast

The trade returns former Magic star Hedo Turkoglu, along with Jason Richardson and Earl Clark, to Orlando in exchange for Vince Carter, Marcin Gortat, Mickael Pietrus, a 2011 first-round pick and cash considerations.

Ya this is really interesting. Apparently Orlando has just away Lewis for Arenas, wowwww. Even though Arenas seems like a Cancer, wow. Looks like Phoenix is looking to tank.

Wow, so with their trades Orlando looks a LOT better. Howard, Arenas, Turkoglu, Richardson, Nelson, Redick & co.... Orlando just got BIGGGGG. I wonder if these trades are directly designed to put together a team with the ability to beat Miami through size.

In other news, I've got 50$ on Wade getting more points than Arenas tonight, I wonder if this means I automatically win that bet haha.

I think Phoenix made this trade to get better. Carter may be a downgrade on J-Rich, but he also may blow up. J-Rich got a lot of good looks playing alongside Nash, and Carter should benefit similarly. Also, Turkoglu was doing nothing. His slow pace and lack of energy made him a liability at times. Pietrus will step into Turkoglu's role and probably do a better job. He is much better suited to Phoenix's up tempo style. And I think Gortat was actually a big part of this deal. Phoenix gets a much-needed decent big guy.

While I do think this trade makes Phoenix better in the short-term, it may also be designed to allow for change to happen quicker (that is, to allow them to re-build). They got rid of Turkoglu's big contract and replaced it with Carter's. Carter is only guaranteed $4M next year. I believe Nash's contract is also up. It could be re-build time for the Suns...
