My lord. The Twins just give zero f*cks when it comes to trying to cram on someone.

Sometimes I think it's Twin #1.

Sometimes I think it's Twin #2.

Sometimes I think they are the same person and I've just drunk so much booze over the years that I've fried my brain and I think they are twins when they are in fact not.


They are one pretty good player divided into two. Caleb is offensive twin and Cody is defensive twin. I’ll die on this hill.

Cody's only wearing a mask to hold his face together after taking that nasty shot to the money maker earlier in the game.

HIs mask has nothing to do with COVID.

I think that Vern might legit be better than Biz and Cody are right now.

Also, when Vern did get some PT last month Melo was out injured.

With his ability to catch the ball and finish - and shoot it - how about we give Vern a whole lot of burn with Melo out there with him?

I would like to at least see us try this. Biz fumbles 2-3 good passes in high % scoring position per game. What can Vern do in those instances. I’m willing to bet he can catch and finish a lot more.

Melo needs to work out the difference between being p*ssed off and reckless, and being p*ssed off and using that to fuel him to make them pay.

There’s your amazing pass from LaMelo tonight and kudos to McD for being ready

Thank God Biz is slow to react and can't catch, because if he wasn't he might have stuck his mitt out and blown that rocket from Melo to McD.

If this is called as a hostile act and Cody's wasn't I will lose my **** mind.

They are seriously out of control with these hostile act reviews. Can we just accept that this is going to be a physical sport where from time to time, people will get hit going for the ball?

We'd have the best winning % in league history if we could just play Detroit every game.

It's happening in Aussie Rules as well - and Aussie Rules is a full contact, very physical, kinda barbaric sport.

It's the fear of concussion - and every sporting body in the world terrified of the class action law suits that are coming their way once there is more substantiated evidence of CTE and its cause/effect.

For all his faults, Cody is one tuff SOB.

Monk isn't even looking to try and finish in the paint.

Dude looks super scared out there.

He is just floating out there and his shots have absolutely no lift at all

I feel like if you’re willing to take it at beef stew, you’re going to get free throws

Give me Carey and Melo to start the 4th, that's all that I ask.
