Kyle Korver is I guess waiting until the dust settles to play 1/2 a season for a contender.

He's another guy that could be useful stretching the floor out if Thomas isn't going to play.

Stupid Memphis. How could they lose to Cleveland? Stupid idiots are tanking so obviously. I hate it when others tank. I only like it when we do it.

JV's defense is at par with Bayne's defense right now but JV better scoring and rebounding. Baynes is pure garbage. I think we can possibly develop Alex Len to Jv's level by end of next season

Demar looks really good. He's distributing, hit a couple of 3s (which apparently isn't a fluke, he's over 40% on the season), rebounds more and isn't getting destroyed on D. He looks like a point-forward (avg 7 assists on the season).

I'd be perfectly fine with this version of him.

Spurs holding slight lead over Lakers, Lakers now going to the line every trip down the floor.

Like a Raptors game.

Good article about how different and hard this season is, with Raps featured at the begiining.

Lillard said:
“If you get down by 17 or 18 in some of these games, you can see it,” Lillard added last week. “In the past, you hit a couple of shots, the crowd goes wild, the other team calls a timeout, a chant gets going. There’s energy in the building. Now, you get down 18 to 20, the only thing you can hear is the other team ... so that charge of teams getting back into games isn’t the same. That’s why, once a team is down, they pretty much seem like they’re done so far this year. And I think that’s also why you’re seeing more teams getting down, because it’s a battle. It’s not just a battle of physically playing, it’s a battle of getting into the game.”
