KP and Luka had double/doubles. Zion had a triple double. 49 total bench points might be a record for this season.

Good game Ribs/Hawks.


Lol still want to trade zion?

I don't call this winning streak a good test. Most, if not all, of the real contenders have run off 5, 7, 9 or more wins in a row. So the answer is until I am a contender everyone is available.

Zion is surprising the hell out of me with his passing/assist. I think Gallinari is really helping my bench scoring and floor spacing; but its still early with only two games for him.

This is true. Just be aware though that if you let them play they’ll only give you limited minutes and a fraction of what they’re usually able to produce.

I know there's been a lot of talk about "the sim" and stuff but to me the way it handles injuries is BY FAR the most unrealistic thing. :lol:

Imagine Embiid being banged up IRL and the Sixers saying "let's limit him to 6 minutes tonight" instead of just sitting him.

The Hawks have their fair share of injuries and usually the minutes limit to start off is 15 to 20.

Damn, suffered our 1st divisional loss and also lost our grip on the 3rd seed (dropping to 5th). Offense is in a major funk.

I am just thinking out loud. With the way Kerr treats his young players, bumps in the wrong direction for Wiseman and Kuminga next season could happen. So production wise it may not be a bad deal in 2022/23.

The Central division is kicking our ass; going 2 - 7 against them. My Pacers are 14 - 13 outside the division.

In the 70s you could not get Coors east of the Mississippi. Miller High Life was considered its equal and the cool kids beer. Budweiser was considered the hardcore kids beer.

Once Coors was shipped out east, the fad quickly wore off. Miller. Michelob, and Budweiser remained the kings. Most of the ladies were all about their wine coolers :D

The dad's beers were Schlitz, PBR, and Old Milwaukee.
