Nuggets and Mavs also lost to weaker eastern conference teams. Wow

Other top teams have bad nights?.. huh... I thought it was just us because those teams don't have Rondo.

Hobo's nearly dropped one at home to the lowly Knicks. Gave up 132 in the process... even with Beverly back. We need to take care of business tonight and keep the pedal to the metal and secure the top spot in the West... then we can rest before the playoffs.

The Nets court floor is ugly AF. Like they had some house flippers redo it for them...

The Bucks got beat by 22 tonight in SA.... Looks like every "top" team can have off nights.

What if Zion comes back and meshes perfectly with that team without diminishing anyone else... Contender?

They should make the playoffs as the 8th seed this year if he comes back in the next week or so.

It's a clusterf*ck after the first 7 teams, it feels like nobody wants it.

Also Lonzo with 4 straight 20+ games.
I'm not sure this is real life. :oops:

The C's losing to the Wizards without Beal, Bertans, and Wall is just pure joy.

I'm not sure his game (what I've seen of it anyway) meshes much with Ingram's in that I think Zion's points will come at the "expense" of Ingram's. It does give Holiday/Ball a legit option in transition that they don't have at the moment.

I'm still on the fence about how Zion's game will translate overall. The athletic advantage he had in college is negated somewhat in the Pro's. Is the fundamental game there to stay ahead?

Ingram is far less ball dominant and a much better shooter than RJ was last year and Zion still thrived alongside RJ at Duke. I don't think there will be much of an issue with those two meshing.

This only works for me if he plays the entire game in a bald eagle costume.

definitely a good time to read the Celtics v Sixers game thread on Boston’s board. Meltdown at realizing they may not actually be contenders.
