Nathan Jawai tops scores for the Timberwolves… do not adjust your TV set

That ain’t no photoshop folks (well, the red circle is). Tonight in the NBA something completely unexpected happen – not only did Nathan Jawai get serious minutes, but he outscored everyone on his team. The 23 minutes Jawai had today almost doubled his total minutes so far this season. His 16 points on 7-11 shooting […]

Aussie Roundup – November 4, 2009

It feels good to be able to say “Bogut’s Back!” for once and not be talking about his injured back. To put it simply, Bogut’s 16 point, 13 rebound effort against Chicago today was his best game in almost a year (probably since he went 20-14 in that nail biter against the Spurs).  That’s a […]

Sunday Six Pack: KD, VC and the Batman

  Ahhhh… feels good to down a six pack during the season for once. ONE: First the Aussie Roundup. BogutWatch – now back in action after a 10 month absence – didn’t exactly get off to the best start yesterday. The Bucks got rolled in Philly 99-86, with AB struggling in the 31 minutes of […]

Sunday Six Pack: Lebron-Shaq, the Aussie Contingent and the Wall of Fame

ONE: First off the rank is the Aussie Roundup. Lots of Aussie-related NBA news happening in the last week, all of which you would have seen if you’re following the NBAMate Twitter feed (more on this later). You all know by now that Patty signed with the Blazers – a move that many thought could […]

Sunday Six Pack: Overrated Sheed, Mr Bosh and the Exciting Hawks

Dallas Mavericks – 2009 NBA Blog Preview

Photo by Danny Bollinger When I think about my trip to the USA earlier in the year, of all the NBA games that I saw, one stands out very clearly in my mind. This one. Of all the teams I watched around the country during that month-long adventure, the most fun I had – apart […]

Sunday Six Pack: Bacon, Patty and the Go-To Guys

ONE: Rest assured, this blog is not moving exclusively to weekly Sunday Six Packs. I’m back from my overseas trip from Manila and what a crazy last couple of days it has been. Woke up Friday morning at 10am, worked for half a day, jumped on a flight to Singapore, bought some duty free shit, […]

Sunday Six Pack: Sheed, Lebron and Videotape

ONE: By now most of you have probably heard about the Lebron James dunk saga, but if not, here’s a quick recap. During a pick up game at a Skills Academy Lebron was running earlier in the week, a young fella by the name of Jordan Crawford came down the lane and dunked on the […]

Is the Jawai Factor real?

With the ‘Australians in the NBA’ count currently at 2, and one of them injured (Bogut), this leaves big Nate to carry the hopes of a nation. Big Nathan Jawai that is. Only Jawai has struggled to stay in the Raptors lineup thanks to a recent demotion to the D-League. What has happened to the […]

Sunday Six Pack – the suit, the Machine, the toss and the thigh

ONE: Catch up on what Andrew Bogut did during the All-Star weekend over at his blog, including the reason he wore this ridiculous suit. On a serious note, Bogut talks about his injury: “My back is still the same. Some good days, some bad. Just when you think it’s starting to feel better, you will […]
