Nets and the era of Big Data ... Getting bigger?

Nets and the era of Big Data ... Getting bigger?

Two weeks ago, the Nets and Infor, the sponsor of the team’s jersey ads, released a video on how the software company is helping the Nets. It was a short one, didn’t get any publicity and seemed mainly promotional. Sean Marks and Infor CEO Charles Phillips talked about how the company has already helped the Nets “on the court” and how it can add to the team’s future. Specifically, Marks talkd about how Infor has helped with team performance, developing player-friendly apps. How is @Infor helping the Brooklyn Nets on the court?

Daily Rumbles: Russell Westbrook and the OKC3 give Durant a glimpse of his future.

THIS, is what we have waited for. Happy Thanksgiving Thunder Nation!!!! Last night the Oklahoma City Thunder gave their fans something extra to be thankful for today and served Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors an early slice of humble pie. From beginning to end, this game was played with playoff level intensity. Though the score was tied 8 to 8 after the first five minutes, the Thunder set a defensive tone and maintained it for the entire game. (as fellow Chris Grenham wrote in todays, Thunder Views, those words have been a long time coming) Prior to the game, during my Facebook...

Utah Jazz G-League update: Winless Salt Lake City Stars still a key cog

The Salt Lake City Stars have struggled to win games this season. However, the relationship between the Utah Jazz and their G-League affiliate is more symbiotic than ever. To say that the 2017-18 season hasn’t gone as planned for the Utah Jazz would be a massive understatement. The squad is as injury-addled as last year and they’ve already […] Utah Jazz G-League update: Winless Salt Lake City Stars still a key cog - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Wright Stuff Week 5: Struck down by injury, waiting for life to resume

Delon Wright sat out this entire week with an injury to the shoulder he’d had surgically repaired just over a year ago. It was not a great turn of events. Welcome to The Wright Stuff, our weekly column following the career of Raptors point guard Delon Wright. Since we can’t influence his training or anything on the court, we’ll recommend films that reflect his past week and hopefully inspire a leap forward. It’ll be part film breakdown, part essay, and part whatever loose piece of wisdom we can shake from the experience. ACT 1 In his first two seasons in Toronto, Delon Wright...

Guest Post: Your Thanksgiving Guide To Arguing With That One Uncle Who Was Wrong About The Sixers

The following was posted originally by Bobby Hallinan over at Class is Boring (posted here with minor edits), but it’s good and you totally should have pitched it to me, Bobby. Happy Thanksgiving to all and heed his advice. One of the most widespread tropes attached to Thanksgiving, up there with turkey, football, and online arguments about which side dish is the best, is the contentious presence of That One Uncle. He’s been memorialized as a recurring correspondent on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, and he’s been the subject of countless online survival guides, especially...

Game react: Utah Jazz get the gimme over Markkanen, Chicago Bulls

Following a difficult road trip, the Utah Jazz got back on the winning track against Lauri Markkanen and the Chicago Bulls. For me, one of the major bullet points on the Utah Jazz 2017-18 season game plan had to be ‘getting the gimmes.’ With the squad facing a slim margin for error in the wake […] Game react: Utah Jazz get the gimme over Markkanen, Chicago Bulls - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

DeMarre Carroll ... enjoying a new role as mentor

DeMarre Carroll ... enjoying a new role as mentor

April 8, 2012. In the second quarter of a game against the then 40-14 San Antonio Spurs, Utah Jazz starting forward CJ Miles left with 5:43 to go until halftime. Miles had injured his calf, did not return, and did not play another game during the 2011-12 season. Enter DeMarre Carroll, then in his third year and on his fourth team. Carroll came off the bench to light up the Spurs for 16 points in 18 minutes on 6-of-8 shooting from the field, including a 3-of-4 display from three. Carroll was +13 in the 10-point loss and cemented himself into the Jazz rotation that night. Prior to that...

Dial 905: Malcolm Miller makes debut, tough losses roll in, and more

The good news for the 905 is the return of Malcolm Miller. The bad news? The actual games. The Raptors 905 have a new-look team with only one returning player from the championship squad of last year. The majority of the roster is G-League rookies, and frankly, it shows. So far this season, the 905 are not the powerhouse they were last year. They’re still struggling to find chemistry and five-man units that work. With that, the 905 played two games this week and lost both — neither of them were even close. Here’s our weekly review. Saturday Nov. 18th — vs. Lakeland Magic Final...

Thunder Views: A Very Westbrook Thanksgiving

Thunder Views: A Very Westbrook Thanksgiving

This was well worth the wait. It finally happened. For the first time since Kevin Durant joined the Warriors after the 2015-16 season, OKC defeated Golden State. But this was different than your typical long-awaited win. This was perfect. Wednesday night was all about Russ, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Spotlight I’d be doing all of you a disservice if we didn’t focus on Russ here. He finished with a season high 34 points, 10 rebounds, and 9 assists. His energy was, dare I say it, palpable from the opening tip. He was angry, motivated, and fast all night long, and there...

Clippers Snap Losing Streak vs Hawks, 116-103

Clippers Snap Losing Streak vs Hawks, 116-103

Finally, a win. I wasn’t sure if I should write this recap or not. I’ve been particularly mindful of superstition in the last few weeks, as the Clippers’ current 9-game losing streak began with the first game of the season that I was unable to see—and continued through the second, third, fourth, and fifth such games, consecutively (while I was travelling). When I was finally back home and able to catch a game, it was a close loss to the 76ers. I only saw the first half of the Clippers’ game against the Cavaliers, when they were tied at halftime but ultimately lost in overtime. ...

Moe Harkless Frustrated With Offensive Role

Moe Harkless Frustrated With Offensive Role

The Trail Blazers forward tells Jason Quick of NBCSports Northwest about his stint in fifth-starter purgatory. Trail Blazers small forward Maurice Harkless is frustrated with his role and he’s starting to speak out about it. Though Harkless is a regular in Portland’s starting lineup, his touches and stat line fall far below those of his compatriots. Jason Quick of NBCSports Northwest detailed the situation in an article published just after Portland’s 101-81 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. “I’m just out there, and that’s frustrating,’’ Harkless said....

Knicks 108, Raptors 100: Let’s just recap that historic third quarter

41-10. Yes, so that really happened. We’ve seen some shockingly impressive basketball stuff from the 2017-18 New York Knicks, but nothing quite like what they pulled off Wednesday night at the Garden against the Toronto Raptors. After watching 6 quarters of basketball between these squads—four last Friday, the first two tonight—I was convinced that this was simply not a good matchup. The Raptors’ guards are too crafty, and they shoot threes too readily. Hell, they dropped 10 triples on the Knicks in the first half en route to an 11-point edge. Kristaps Porzingis looked mortal, as he...

Lakers vs. Kings Final Score: Shooting woes follow LA on the road in 113-102 loss to Sacramento

Lakers cant get their shots to fall and lose big on the road to Sacramento. The Los Angeles Lakers had the chance to win three games in a row for the first time this season and hold onto the No. 8 seed for another night, but instead fell to the Sacramento Kings 113-102 in what was Lonzo Ball’s first NBA matchup with De’Aaron Fox. While Ball would put up the more impressive stat line with 11 points, 11 assists, 7 rebounds and one poster jam over Willie Cauley-Stein, Fox and his 10 points, 3 assists and 4 rebounds would come in a win for the Kings, which at the end of the day is all that...

LeBron, of course, leads the way. Here are player grades for Wednesday’s Cavs-Nets game. Have a great Thanksgiving! LeBron James: A+ James scored 23 fourth quarter points, including 18 in a row at one point. What else is there to say? He won the Cavs this game. Kevin Love: B- Love started the game shooting 1-7 from the field, but finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds and contributed in other ways. Had his shots fallen early, the Cavs may not have needed LeBron’s heroics. Dwyane Wade: A- Wade is starting to look much more comfortable running bench units. He also stretched...

Thunder vs Warriors, final score: Westbrook outplays Durant, OKC gets key win 108-91

OKC needed to right the ship in a big way this season, and a huge home win over the defending champs is a step in the right direction. Russell Westbrook has took it upon himself to make the biggest adjustments and sacrifices to his game to make his teammates feel welcome. In doing so, Westbrook has got away from what has made him great. The Thunder need him to be ‘THE GUY,’ but through 16 games, he was often the culprit to erratic play and lost leads. Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder welcomed Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors to Loud City on Wednesday and, in his best...

Blazers Succumb to The Process vs Sixers

Led by Joel Embiid’s 28 points, the 76ers cruised by the Blazers. The Portland Trail Blazers were unable to overcome a sluggish start, which ultimately resulted in a 20-point loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. Outside of Damian Lillard’s 30 points, there isn’t much for Portland fans to be excited about after this contest. Before we all settle into our Thanksgiving Day routines, let’s take a second look at how Philadelphia was able to run away with this one. Game Flow The Blazers started ice cold from the field, missing their first 13 attempts. Philadelphia was unable to fully...

Wolves 124, Magic 118: The TimberBulls Prove Their Worth

Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler help save the Wolves from blowing a 26-point lead Even though the Magic came into tonight on a five-game losing skid, they put the Wolves to the test in this matchup thanks to some efficient shooting early on, pesky defense throughout and a young player by the name of Aaron Gordon. It was a game filled with a lot of back and forth and really large momentum shifts, and even though the Wolves won, they somehow made me more nervous about them as a team. Jimmy Butler summed it up in his postgame interview with Marney Gellner: “All in all we won, but I’m not happy...
