Calling Kevin Love dropping 40 on us as a job interview game...

But if we have AD, LeBron and Green back along with Kuzma, I don't know how we lose this one.

Imagine living on the East Coast. Fortunately, I work super late and I'm up anyway. But otherwise it would suuuuuuck.

Imagine waking up at 5:30 AM to watch the game and then leave for work...

The east coast games that start at 1 or 2 AM are just killing me tho...

I'm back in central time zone. So I like when we play east coast games and central games. West coast games kill me the next day. I have to drink a whole bunch of coffee.

Yeah, I could never do that. Maybe for some big games, but not regularly. I've always needed my sleep.

I've lived in all four time zones, and I think it's a toss-up between Mountain and Central for the best. Central is probably the best in terms of how it fits in with a work schedule (Lakers games tip at 9:30, so you can still get to bed at a decent hour), but Mountain is the sweet spot between early and not too early.

Anyone else think Thompson could be what the Heat need?

Lackluster 1st quarter for the Lakers shooting-wise. Need to start making their shots, 9-22 to Cleveland's 12-21 from the field.
