Eye on Basketball Podcast: A full slate of action and nightmares
Zach Harper and Matt Moore get frightened by the Pelicans' mascot, go over last night's massive slate of games, and preview tonight's action.
After a massive night of basketball, we've got a lot to catch up and talk about. 14 games on the schedule meant a lot of instant analysis for teams making their debuts and even a couple of teams on back-to-backs. Matt Moore joins me to break down the action, but first we've got talk about how terrifying the New Orleans Pelicans' new mascot is. Is it the type of mascot that will haunt your dreams or enter your nightmares with bad intentions? Can any of us feel safe with this thing roaming the earth?
Then we switch to the game action and our first impressions of what we saw. How good was Tristan Thompson against Kevin Garnett? Can we recognize that Brook Lopez is the Brooklyn Nets' best player? Kevin Love impressed in his return but is there concern about the Minnesota Timberwolves? What are the Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns doing with these wins? What is the deal with the Denver Nuggets? How incredible was Klay Thompson in the Golden State Warriors blowout victory?
We discuss all of this, plus music choice, DeMarcus Cousins, and preview tonight's games.
