Bump

Kobe Bryant became the youngest player to score 30,000 points.

Some achievement that.

Sky have signed a deal to show games

Quote:
In the space of a month, UK basketball fans have gone from having no NBA on their television screens to having multiple options after the NBA announced a deal with Sky Sports for live coverage for the remainder of the season.

The new agreement will bring live Sunday night games for the rest of the regular season, including double-headers most weekends, followed by live NBA Playoff games, the entire Eastern Conference Finals, and every game of the NBA Finals in June.

Sky Sports coverage begins with the NBA’s third regular-season game in the United Kingdom featuring the New York Knicks and the Detroit Pistons at London’s O2 arena. The sold-out game on 17 January will be the first NBA game played in the UK to be shown live in 3D, and will also be available live on mobile, online and tablet devices via Sky Go.

The deal will be a welcome addition to the three live games per week ESPN UK are showing this season. The conference finals will be split between Sky Sports and ESPN, with ESPN showing the Western Conference Finals, whilst both channels will air the finals.

It remains unclear if the live games shown weekly by both channels will be different ones.

“This agreement provides even more live content for our customers to watch at home or on the move,” Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports, said. “The NBA has a strong fan base in the UK and the sold-out game at the O2 promises to be a great sporting spectacle. We follow NBA London Live 2013 with primetime Sunday night games for the remainder of the regular-season and the drama of the post-season including every game of the NBA Finals.”

Dan Markham, NBA vice president of media distribution and emerging markets, added: “We are thrilled to partner with Sky Sports and make extensive NBA coverage – including Sunday double-headers in primetime – accessible to fans on television and across a range of devices. We look forward to bringing more exciting moments from the NBA season to fans in the UK on Sky Sports.”

Hopefully this will mean we'll get to see a few other franchises play. It's always the same lot on ESPN.

He's doing quite well considering he's had a few injuries that have kept him out for a bit and the team are quite inexperienced. Eric Gordon being back has helped as it's taken some of the pressure off him though.

Generally, he's the top scorer (although saying that, Vasquez has been on fire recently) and should continue to improve if he and Gordon can stay fit.

Anyone watching this on now?

So far they have managed to fuck up the microphones and the main commentator seems very excited

Missed the game, but will probably watch it on catch up tonight.

Can't believe how much the Lakers are struggling- they are only a couple of games above the Hornets and we've only just started turning up over the last few weeks!

Lakers are in a right old mess.

Dwight Howard might be wishing he didn't push for the trade to them.

I am really getting into this sport now. Sky coverage is really impressive and the NBA Action show a great advert for the game. Have go a soft spot obviously for the Heat because of Lebron, but my favourite player is Blake Griffin so I think I am a Clippers fan for now.

They are amazing to watch, even defensively. Never realisd how good Lebron is, actually I never realised how good this sport is tbh! Blake Griffin though, wow.

The Heat are mental at the mo, so many gears to go through if they get in trouble, like when the Raptors levelled it up in the 4th about 5 minutes later the Heat are suddenly up by 24!! Or the comeback last night, 26-16 in the 4th v the Knicks etc. Funny they used to be called 4th quarter chokers, now they are one of the best I've seen in years in that situation. Hopefully it's the Griz or Spurs (preferably) in the finals v them, OKC cant do shit and wouldnt fancy the Clippers doing anything either.

Add another insane comeback to the list. Dunno how they got out of that mess, even if it was just the Cavs scrubs.

That was a crazy comeback last night, not sure how they managed it, but they are living life dangerously. They have almost gotten to comfortable with their own strength, which can be very dangerous going in to the playoffs.

In a 7 game series they will be able to have an off night and still progress.

Wonder if they have peaked early but then I am not sure who can touch them at the moment.

Yes they can have an off night, but it's really dangerous being to comfortable in your own ability. It could ruin more than one game if it takes to long for them to find their feet after a loss.

Not sure who can touch them neither, they have a really strong team.

And could well go on for a while yet

Their next games are

v Detroit
v Chalotte
@ Orlando
@ Chicago
@ New Orleans
@ San Antonio

4 games on the road finishing with the Spurs may be where it falls over.

27 in a row is a phenomenal achievement but the slow starts they have been having finally caught up with them. That and some inspired performances from Deng, Boozer and Robinson

The heat may have had one eye on San Antonio and thought this game would be straightforward given the injuries the Bulls had to Rose and Noah.
