Podcast: NBA Report - the New Memphis Grizzlies, Celtic and Jazz Blues (11-27-18)

November 27th, 2018 · Comments

2018-11-27-nbareport.jpg

On this week's NBA Report Podcast, Chris and Dave look at the red-hot, new look Memphis Grizzlies and other hot teams in the NBA.  The Grizzlies, with contributions from Mike Conley, Marc Gasol, and young players like Jaren Jackson Jr., have suddenly escalated to the top of the standings, while staying true to their ongoing tough-minded defensive mentality.  We also look at the still pesky Orlando Magic with more big performances against the Lakers and Warriors, nearly beating the Warriors at Oracle Arena on Monday.

Later we look at some sagging teams including the Boston Celtics who have been unable to score much recently and are playing inconsistent defense.  Plus, more on the flagging Utah Jazz who now are without Donovan Mitchell for several games.  Then some other news and notes from the NBA, a preview of the upcoming gauntlet of extremely tough opponents for the Nuggets next month, and much more from the association.

2018-11-20-nbareport.jpg

On this week's NBA Report podcast, Chris and Dave look at the suddenly struggling short-handed Warriors.  Following the KD/Green dustup, the Warriors continued to slide, now on a 5 of 7 losing skid, including a loss to the sub .500 Mavericks.   What made the team respond so poorly after the "Clippers Incident?"  Later we look at the Wizards coming apart at the seams, with new rumblings that the team is trying to trade both John Wall and Bradley Beal.   Plus - a 51 point night for the Lakers' LeBron James during his "reunion tour road trip" in Miami, and much more news from the NBA.

The panel returns with Dave to preview a fairly light week in College Football and a pretty big week in the NFL.  Ron, John, Andy, and our latest guest picker look at a potential trap game between Syracuse and Notre Dame, plus recap last week's College action.  From the NFL, we look at some pretty good late games between the Sehawks and Rams plus a Sunday Night survival for Dallas at the Eagles.  Are the Eagles now in trouble for the division.  Then, we preview a game most people loved for weeks: Chiefs vs Rams.  However, we cover the recent move of the game from Mexico City, where conditions deteriorated the field, back to Los Angeles, the Rams' home.  After that, the Week 12 football picks with the entire panel on the air, and a guest picker to be announced during the program.

Podcast: NBA Report - Jimmy Butler Traded to Sixers, Warriors Down a Splash Brother (11-13-18)

November 13th, 2018 · Comments

2018-11-13-nbareport.jpg

This week on the NBA Report show, Chris and Dave look at the Jimmy Butler trade from Minnesota to the Sixers.  While the Sixers did not send much back in exchange, the move is a calculated gamble in Butler's walk year.   We discuss whether Butler is enough to make the Sixers one of the elite contenders in the NBA.  We break down the spat between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green at the end of the Warriors' overtime loss to the Clippers.  Chris and Dave debunk the argument that the Durant/Green fight was an indication of Warriors tension.  Later, a look at other news and notes, including Steph Curry's recent injury on Thursday against the Bucks that kept him out through the next week.   Later, a look at other news and notes from the Association, including a breakout performance from the Pelicans' E'twaun Moore and much more NBA chatter.
