NBA Roundup: Move Over Saints, Here Come The Hornets

‚ By 

The second week of NBA action is in the books and a few surprises have already left a mark on this young season. The Lakers have jumped out to a ho hum 8-0 start and the shocking Hornets are becoming the talk of the town in New Orleans as they have played brilliant 7-0 ball thus far.

The not so mighty Heat are on track to win only 51 games, 31 less than projected by ESPN prognosticators, and the Central Division continues to play hot potato with the division lead as no one wants to go north of the .500 mark.

Two guys who have played out of their minds over the past week are Utah‘s Paul Millsap and Indiana’s Roy Hibbert. Who said Utah will crumble without Carlos Boozer as Millsap is currently 8th in the league in scoring at 23.8 points per game and registered a sick nasty 46 in a road win at daunting Miami. I guess D-Will is worth a lot more than we thought. And Hibbert is leading the league with a juicy 3.3 blocks per game to go along with his 16 points and 9 rebounds.

The best games of this weekend feature Saturday night’s match-up between the Portland Trail Blazers going on a mission to New Orleans to hand CP3 and his crew their first loss of the season, and Sunday night’s classic battle as Phoenix tries to do the same to the Lakers in Los Angeles.

Also, check out this video of Paul Millsap dropping 11 points with 28 seconds left against the Heat. His layup with .6 seconds left sent the game into overtime.
