Very dangerous game. The Cavs are decimated with injuries and they're barely better than us when fully healthy. I could definitely see a win tonight. If we were to lose this game and the Wolves game coming up, I think we could cement our spot in the botton 2. Huge game.

Shut WCJ down. We signed a tank commander especially for these kinds of games.

Ennis is back? Tank is in danger.

LOL Announcer just say Chuma is 6'8. Hey, NBA rules say we measure every player before camp right?

No they changed it back to the way it was before. A bunch of players grew 2 inches this year.

Ennis must want to play enough games that his 3pt percentage is recognized as one of the league leaders.

He isn't 6'8". We don't have an official measurement for him, but Anthony Davis measured 6'9.25" at the combine and he towered over Okeke.

Hot take.

The Magic will win if the Cavs do not make a three for the game.

The Magic had to have known they were going to win this one, based on the players that the Cavs sat.

I thought AD's latest measurement has him 6'10 barefoot? When the league required all players to be measured barefoot during camp

To be eligible to be a league leaders for some things you have to play 70% of your games. If Ennis plays the final 11 games I believe he'll be right at 70%. That way he may finish in the top 10 3pt fg percentage.

He might've grown a bit? They did round up in those official measurements for last season whereas they didn't round up combine measurements.

Regardless, he looked a half-foot taller than Okeke. I know he wasn't that much taller. I'd guess Okeke's actual height is somewhere just south of 6'6". I think his long-term position is at the three with some switchability.

Our announcing team attempting to pronounce Kabengele is cringeworthy.
