    Trae Young with 35 points and 11 assists tonight. First rookie with 35 & 10 since Steph Curry in 2010.

    Hope he continues to prove me wrong (not that it's that hard to do).

    Rajon Rondo proves once again to be a douchiest douche in the NBA.

    Chris Paul suspended 2, Rondo 3, and Ingram 4 for their roles in fight on Friday.

    Throw in Chris “Nut-Puncher” Paul for the twofer. The NBA will be a better place for about a week.

    Rough game for Trae but he came up big down the stretch

    Rockets are already parting ways with Carmelo. Honestly, the only teams that should be interested in Melo are teams vying for the Zion sweepstakes. He's like kryptonite to functional team basketball.

    Perhaps the least surprising development in the history of the NBA, if not all of sports. I really don't understand why they signed him to begin with.

    Agreed. It's not as if the key to getting past the Warriors was yet another volume shooter who plays defense intermittently.

    Carmelo is essentially a three-point specialist who can’t shoot 3s. He hasn’t deserved a roster spot on any team for the last 3/4 years. The “kryptonite” reference is spot on.
