SWAPS

New York traded Zach Randolph and Jamal Crawford on Friday, parting with their two top scorers to free up coveted salary-cap space for the summer of 2010. Crawford was sent to Golden State for Al Harrington. Hours later, Randolph was shipped to the Los Angeles Clippers along with Mardy Collins for Cuttino Mobley and Tim Thomas.

SWEET HOMECOMINGS

Kevin Garnett scored 17 points on 8-for-12 shooting in his first game in Minnesota since being traded to Boston before last season, helping the Celtics beat the Timberwolves 95-78 on Friday night. Garnett played 12 seasons for Minnesota. … The New Orleans Hornets made a triumphant return to Oklahoma City, routing the Thunder 105-80. The Hornets spent two seasons in Oklahoma City after they were displaced by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.

SIDELINED

Utah forward Carlos Boozer sat out the Jazz’s game Friday night against San Antonio because of a left quadriceps strain. … Manu Ginobili could return to the San Antonio Spurs’ lineup next week, earlier than expected after he had surgery on his left ankle in September to repair ligament damage.

SLUMPS

Oklahoma City fell to an NBA-worst 1-12 with its 105-80 loss to New Orleans on Friday night. … Houston beat Washington 103-91 to drop the Wizards to 1-9, the franchise’s worst start since the 1966 Baltimore Bullets opened 1-10.

SPEAKING

“It’s always good to go somewhere and feel the love in the building. It’s even better to win in the place I used to play. It was a good feeling. There was a lot of great energy in the building. I was just blessed that the people came out, so thank you, fans.”—Kevin Garnett after his first game in Minnesota since being traded to Boston before last season. Garnett had 17 points on 8-for-12 in the Celtics’ 95-78 victory over the Timberwolves on Friday night.

NBA RESEARCH REPORT
By Indiancowboy

NBA

Golden State vs. Philadelphia


This might come as a shock, but if you look at the numbers, GS is actually 5-7 and Philly is 6-6. GS embarrassed this team last year at home so this is a bit of a revenge game for Philly and the public actually likes State here a bit backing them at 43% and the line has slightly come down from 7 to 6. GS comes off a tough loss to Chicago at home but did beat Portland at home before that and beat the Clippers easily on the road. Crawford is still questionable for the Warriors. GS has not lost many back to back games and the Sixers barely defeated the Clippers at home and prior to that lost to the Twolves on the road. I lean on the Warriors here coming off the loss.
