12 win streak. Win over Bulls on the road tonight. Maybe they get cold, but I don't think so.

Chicago's forecast calls for a low of 32.  If they cover their noggin' they'll be fine.

Re: What about da Hawks?
Sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of the Hawks 10 game win streak.

You need to slow that roll....There is a lot of time for them to come around.
"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

They usually do.  If they don't get back to normal, how are they ever going to get the 32nd pick in the draft again?

We will win the west!
Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Re: What about da Hawks?
Seriously...they play in the East. Any decent team has a chance to win 60 over there...

You've got to be real good to win 60 in either league.  To their credit, they've beaten Utah (2), Denver, Houston, Dallas, Portland and L.A. Clippers (2). 

They did lose to Swaggy P and the lowly Lakers early on.

Except they have beaten all comers. Not just east teams. Team ball - it's the new model. Spurs did it first.

No question.  They're playing as good or probably better team ball than anyone else.  Plus, it doesn't hurt that Jeff Teague is really coming into his own at the point and playing at an All Star level.  And they have Al Horford back and finally healthy for a whole season....so far.  Very solid center/power forward that can give you 15/9 every night. 

I'm like most people and fully expect them to level off.  Just pretty cool to watch right now.

Demolished OKC last night. Was close for a half.

Most think OKC is a top 3/4 west team.

Probably will be by season's end. Durant and Westbrook were out the first quarter of the season and once they get on track, they'll be tough to beat.  It's Golden State and everyone else right now.  Did anyone see what Klay Thompson did last night for GS?  Broke the record for scoring in one quarter.  37 points.  I couldn't score 37 without anyone guarding me.

Yeah good regular season team that probably gets through the first round only to fall victim for lack of a bench.

You serious, Clark?

They got game on the bench.

Point production was what I omitted. They work hard on defense and I want the Hawks to go as far as possible.

Right. ESPN thinks high of them in the power rankings. Record doesn't reflect how good they are due to the 3/4 week absence of the two studs.

They beat some bad teams in this streak. But they've beat some really good teams too.
