He usually can't handle AD. Will be curious to see the Cousins dynamic. Pretty sure the Kentucky boys are going to give him their best shots.

Thanks 76ers for making the Clips loss last night justified if we take care of business tonight against LAL as BOS won't gain ground.

Damian Lillard scores 49 points. The Blazers win in Miami. It's the first 4-1 road trip by the Blazers since November 2009 when Greg Oden and Brandon Roy were still healthy enough to play.

49 points by Lillard. 9-12 from three, and 12-12 from the FT line. What a performance. The Heat had no answer for him tonight.

Nurkic also doing wonders for the Blazers. Great pick-up by them.

Does Denver hold on to the 8th seed? Or do you think Portland or Dallas will catch them?

Portland's a pretty clear favorite to get the 8th at this point. They're only one game back and have a much softer schedule.

Now that the Pelicans are playing well, Denver's remaining schedule looks brutal. They have to play them three times along with a bunch of other good teams. I wouldn't be shocked if NO catches them (but not Portland).

I absolutely hate that rule, hate that call, hate when Love tries it, but he's definitely the master at it.

The Cavs defense sucks.

They are not going to repeat.

Way too big of a defensive regression compared to last season.

Any reason why Derrick Williams is not getting any mins at all?

He's in their most effective lineups +- with LeBron on the floor. Jefferson's good for about 1 good game every 6 or 7 games at his age.
