Carmelo Anthony’s 10 games for the Houston Rockets

 

HE WILL NOT RETURN SAYS PLAYERS & COACHES

Owner denies Carmelo Anthony will be waived!

 Several players and members of the Rockets coaching staff believe that Carmelo Anthony has played his final game for the franchise, sources reported Sunday. During Houston’s loss to San Antonio on Saturday night that the Rockets and Anthony were in discussions about his role and how the franchise and veteran might be able to proceed together the rest of the season. Those discussions happened in the wake of Anthony’s most recent game, a 2-point performance on 1-of-11 shooting in a lopsided loss to Oklahoma City.

BAD DAY IN L.A.

 

LAKERS ARE FLAT IN LOSS TO RAPTORS 121-107

Serge Ibaka outscores L.A. by himself in 1st quarter

Toronto is the REAL DEAL 

 

 Thanks to Ibaka’s brilliance for the Toronto Raptors, Kawhi Leonard wasn’t missed by anyone except the Lakers fans who might have been hoping to entice him home. He beat LA inside and outside on the way to the biggest offensive game of his career.

“I was just focused,” Ibaka said. “I knew Kawhi was out tonight, so I just wanted to go out there and do my best.”

MOST RECORD BREAKING U.S. OLYMPIC PERFORMANCES 

The Cloud of Social Change 

 

It was only months after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and protests against the Vietnam War were gaining steam as well. In the lead-up to the Olympics, Smith and Carlos helped organize the Olympic Project for Human Rights, a group that reflected their black pride and social consciousness. The group saw the Olympic Games as an opportunity to agitate for better treatment of black athletes and black people around the world.

DID YOU KNOW WHO PETER NORMAN WAS?

Olympic 200 Meter Silver Medalist

 Norman was banned from future Australian Olympic participation; Smith and Carlos were ostracized by the U.S. sporting establishment and subjected to abuse and death threats.  And having suffered along with her husband, in 1977 John Carlos’ ex-wife committed suicide which lead to severe depression for Carlos.  Norman died in 2006.  Smith and Carlos were pall bearers. US Track and Field Federation proclaimed October 9, 2006, the date of his funeral, as Peter Norman Day. 

It was Norman who suggested that Smith and Carlos share the black gloves used in their salute, after Carlos left his pair in the Olympic Village. This is the reason for Smith raising his right fist, while Carlos raised his left.

CLEVELAND FIRES TYRON LUE AFTER 0-6 START

Something’s In The Mist

Cleveland later confirmed its decision to part with Lue, noting Larry Drew has been promoted to interim head coach. Lue led the Cavaliers to three straight NBA Finals, including the 2016 NBA championship. He was 128-83 on the job. 

Sources told Brian Windhorst that Lue recently had a disagreement with Altman over playing veterans. Altman preferred that Kyle Korver and JR Smith be taken out of the rotation to give time to younger players. After one game in which they didn’t play, Lue put both back in the rotation without consulting Altman.

Lue led the Cavaliers to their first NBA championship and became one of the few rookie coaches in the NBA to ever lead his team to a title.

NBA POWER RANKINGS 

1 – 15

 

1. Golden State Warriors
2018-19 record: 6-1

Keep an eye on injured center DeMarcus Cousins, and not because of the referees. Cousins was cleared to return to practice last week after succumbing to a torn Achilles last season. When asked whether he could debut with the Warriors before the calendar year is up, Cousins just smiled. — Spears


2. Toronto Raptors
2018-19 record: 6-0

Only one undefeated team will remain in the association after the Raptors face off against the Bucks in Milwaukee on Monday night. Only three NBA starters have posted a higher true-shooting percentage than Kyle Lowry (72.7 percent), while the Spurs’ imports of Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green have been a paragon of two-way efficiency — both shooting 45 percent or better from 3-point land and stabilizing the wings defensively. — Arnovitz


3. Milwaukee Bucks
2018-19 record: 6-0

We’ve all heard plenty about all the changes and overhauls the Bucks’ offense has seen thus far. But Milwaukee currently ranks No. 2 in defensive efficiency — a metric that, if it holds, would almost certainly make the team a true contender. The club’s spread-the-floor approach is going to make for some nights when shots simply aren’t falling. Having a unit that regularly limits opponents would give the Bucks a consistency they simply haven’t had in years past. — Herring


4. Boston Celtics
2018-19 record: 4-2

The Celtics are still learning how to get all of their talent moving in the right direction, but they are good enough to win through the growing pains. They are coming off a game in which Kyrie IrvingAl Horford and Jayson Tatumcombined to score only 13 points on 22 shots. They were still able to blow out the previously undefeated Pistons behind the best games of the season from Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown— Snellings


5. New Orleans Pelicans
2018-19 record: 4-1

Not that there was any doubt about Anthony Davis‘ extraordinary value, but Sunday’s result while he sat out with a sprained elbow served as a reminder. The Jazz feasted around the rim while handing the Pelicans their first loss of the season, scoring 64 points in the paint in the blowout without the NBA’s leading shot blocker acting as a deterrent. The Pelicans have a plus-20.8 net rating (points per 100 possessions) with Davis on the floor and are minus-16.8 when he sits. — MacMahon


6. Utah Jazz
2018-19 record: 4-2

Reigning Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert is averaging a career-best 17.7 points per game and leading the NBA in field goal percentage (75.0) and screen assists (6.2 per game, per NBA.com/Stats). “I want to show that I’m not only a defensive star,” Gobert said after totaling 47 points in Utah’s back-to-back wins over the weekend. “I can be a star offensively, too.” — MacMahon


7. Denver Nuggets
2018-19 record: 4-1

The Nuggets are off to a great start to the season, currently on top of the Northwest Division and the only team thus far to defeat the defending champion Warriors. However, it should be noted that the Warriors are the only incumbent playoff team that they’ve faced thus far. They do face two playoff squads this week in the Pelicans and Jazz, but also log two more games against lottery teams that could help them keep their early-season momentum. — Snellings


8. Indiana Pacers
2018-19 record: 4-2

The Pacers are the only team in the league that has yet to find itself in a close game (a margin of five points or fewer during the final five minutes of play). In most cases, that has been because of Indiana’s blistering offense, which ranks No. 2 in true shooting percentage right behind the Warriors. In the two games the Pacers dropped, they seemed to have trouble shooting over the length their opponents (Bucks and Wolves) present on the defensive end. — Herring


9. Portland Trail Blazers
2018-19 record: 3-2

Damian Lillard has been blazing so far. The star guard is averaging a well-rounded 33.8 points, 6.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds per game this year. Keep an eye on Zach Collins, who has been playing well in his second season. — Spears


10. Philadelphia 76ers
2018-19 record: 3-3

Undefeated at home and winless on the road, the Sixers are still looking to recapture the magical efficiency of last season’s second-half run. It’s still early, but there’s a good deal of scrutiny on the backcourt, where overall the Sixers’ post a net rating difference of 9.3 when JJ Redick is on the floor versus a negative-8.2 for Markelle Fultz. The good news for Fultz? Over the past week, the numbers have started to inch in his favor. — Arnovitz


11. Detroit Pistons
2018-19 record: 4-1

After squeaking by in a number of close calls to start the campaign 4-0, Blake Griffin and the Pistons regressed back to the mean some with a 109-89 loss to the Celtics. Griffin, who entered the contest averaging 34 points a night on 56 percent shooting, was just 2-of-13 from the floor against Boston. But as long as he and the club can split the middle between those first four games and the dud against the C’s, the Pistons should find themselves firmly in the playoff race a few months from now. — Herring


12. Houston Rockets
2018-19 record: 1-4

The Rockets’ defensive problems run much deeper than Carmelo Anthony, but when Mike D’Antoni says Houston doesn’t have the personnel to stick with its switch-everything scheme, it’s a safe bet that Melo is the first name on his mind. According to NBA Advanced Stats, Anthony gave up 32 points as the primary defender during the defensive debacle against the Clippers that convinced D’Antoni that he needed to figure out a new defensive scheme five games into the season. — MacMahon


13. San Antonio Spurs
2018-19 record: 3-2

It didn’t take DeMar DeRozan long to get comfortable in San Antonio. His 136 points are the most any Spurs player has scored in his first five games for the franchise. DeRozan’s playmaking has been perhaps even more impressive, as he’s averaging 7.8 assists per game, filling a void created by injuries to the team’s top two point guards. — MacMahon


14. Miami Heat
2018-19 record: 3-2

In typical fashion, the Heat are performing the dirty work with commitment. They’re making opponents work for their shot attempts, ranking third in quantified shot probability, a Second Spectrum stat that measures the likelihood of a shot going in taking into account shot quality and the player shooting it. And they’re second in the NBA in rebounding rate. Coming up this week: three winnable games against Sacramento, Charlotte and Atlanta. — Arnovitz


15. Los Angeles Lakers
2018-19 record: 2-4

The Lakers sandwiched their first and only two wins of the season between a couple of excruciating losses to San Antonio. If the suspensions to Rajon Rondoand Brandon Ingram did nothing else, it clarified for the Lakers that they want Lonzo Ball in the starting lineup. When Lonzo shares the floor with LeBron, Josh HartKyle Kuzma and JaVale McGee — their starters during the suspensions — the Lakers are outscoring opponents 116-106. — Arnovitz
