Holy crap!

I thought that Edwards dunk was sure to be the dunk of the year, but this one tops it. It's the same level of violence, but over Clint Capela rather than a nobody rookie from Japan.

That beat Edwards by Miles. Bridges is becoming a force for Charlotte.

Zion dropped 38 last night and all of his made shots from the field were in the restricted area. :lol:

I think David Griffin said something about "choosing when to go for it" being difficult.

Welp, I think there should be no confusion about it anymore. Don't waste a single year of this kids prime. Empty that draft horde this off-season and go for it.

Man, that really sucks for Murray. Denver has become one of the teams I find myself rooting for in the playoffs. I was hoping to see them upset the Lakers or the Clippers.

Truth. He's very young, but I'd be looking to be a playoff team next year. Because Zion is too good for the team to suck anyways.

The key question marks are who should be the second guard, and whether Ingram is the right second star. My dream offseason would be packaging Ingram and ending up with either Suggs/Wagner or Mobley/Giddey.

That would balance the roster and set up foundation of generous, versatile two-way players. Add two years of seasoning and some veteran backups, and that would be a hell of a team.

Curry had 42 points on 21 shot attempts last night. 14/20 FG, 11/16 3P, 3/3 FT. :o

Also, 8 assists, 6 rebounds and 0 turnovers. Although to be fair, I only recognize two names on the roster that OKC fielded.

Curry is going to take that scoring title from Beal.

Good news for us , feel bad for lavine.
If teams keep losing guys and we stay relatively healthy we could see the wizards make a cinderella run.

It's hysterical how all the 7th seeded teams hate the play-in tournament but all of the 9th and 10th seeded teams think it's a great idea. Cuban railed against the play-in tournament back when Dallas was looking like a 7 seed.

Don't worry, Lebron. The NBA will make sure the Lakers make it into the playoffs no matter what. If necessary, you will shoot 25 free throws in that play-in game.

I like the play-in. It definitely has put a stop to tanking by mediocre teams, and frankly, I don't think 7th and 8th seeded teams (particularly in the East) should be rewarded with a sure-thing playoff berth. Let them earn it in the play-in game or bust their butts to get to the 6th seed.

To be fair, I don't think THT was the only hang-up in that trade. It was virtually impossible for the Lakers to trade for Lowry because they would have to gut their entire roster to come up with enough filler contracts. It wasn't like the proposed trade was Lowry for THT straight up. It would have been Lowry for Schroeder + Harrell + THT, or maybe Lowry for Schroeder + Mathews + Dudley + Markieff + THT, and then Toronto would have had to cut a bunch of guys to create the roster spots.

NO would have the 11th pick now. Ingram hasn't been playing great lately. I'm thinking at best we could get Ingram, NAW and that 11th pick for Beal. NAW was doing really well for a stretch of games before getting injured. Say, our pick is 10 - Is there some maneuverablity there? I don't think 10 and 11 gets us into the top 4. It might end up being a frustrating situation.

I'm pretty sure LeBron would like it if the Lakers somehow go to the 9th seed.
