5-on-5: Surprises, letdowns of first month

One thing that stood out to Chris Bosh in his matchup with Kristaps Porzingis? How much the Knicks involve the rookie in their offense. "He can spread the floor, put the ball on the floor, can post up, he can do it all. So you have to be aware of that," he said. "They really try to get him going. They involve him in the offense quite a bit so he's going to take a lot of shots. So you just have to conteset them all."

Chris Bosh thinks the Knicks look much more comfortable on offense this year than they did last season. "I think the ball movement has been a lot better. It seemed all around in the offense when they were trying to run the triangle (last season) it kind of got stuck & you could tell guys werent totally comfortable." NY currently ranks 20th in offensive efficiency.

Repercussions for Jahlil Okafor?

Chris Broussard told SportsCenter that the "Sixers are very supportive of Okafor ... but they have to do their due diligence." He added that a lot could hinge on if the man Okafor fought with presses charges.


Stephen Curry: 'We talk about 33'

The Warriors have won 16 straight this season, but already have eyes on matching the NBA's longest win streak, set by the 1971-72 Lakers. Said Curry: "It's important to have tangible goals. ... We talk about 33. I think I've probably talked about it more than anybody else on the team, just because I know about the history and just really how hard it is."

Cops: No Okafor investigation planned

Boston police say they do not plan to investigate an apparent nightclub scuffle involving Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor unless someone involved comes forward to say they were the victim of a crime. Story

After getting hundreds of requests to chime in on the Sixers, here's my few takes on them: their story reminds me of Jurassic Park.

By that I mean; the science is sound. I get what they want to do.But life "finds a way". Chaos is a variable that must be acknowledged.

david b. thorpe @coachthorpe

This team could easily have 3-5 wins, and if so, would anyone be as upset? No. But they lost. The Embiid saga. Okafor's late night fight.

david b. thorpe @coachthorpe

It's just "noise in the system" and it is only heard because of the lack of any win. If Noel were to get hurt again, or Okafor went down... @SportsInsights
