Bron and AD is so fun to watch. So thankful that Kawhi did not join those two.

You guys!?... Ooof Portland too. 2 back to backs already. 13 of the first 16 on the road. Schedules need to be fixed up a bit.

The NBA has enormous amount of money and resources to create a simple system that balances that type of crap. But it is in their best interest not to. Projected top teams generate all kinds of money in many ways. Keep them on top by all means. Not that they need it.

I am biased but I don't think this should have had a travel called.

We were just tired this game. Nothing else. And the Lakers are Physical. We can't match their front court with Olynk. We need our legs and depth to wear them down. Also we were going for too many 3's.

I didn't watch the game, but did Jokic badly outplay Embiid like it seems from the Boxscore. A 28 point difference in +/- of a very close game is kind of crazy.

Best record, with the best defense and the best player in the game. But those teams still had the better shot. Experts.

Like what I saw from Miami, they have some nice young talent.

I won a $25 parlay —> $20k tonight. Still in shock, out at bar celebrating. Hedged the last game (Lakers -8) with $2k on Heat +8.5 right after halftime. Biggest win I’ve ever had lol. Without the Knicks leg it would only have been $3100ish.

I use bovada personally, though there’s others out there that take US folks (5dimes,betonline), and if you’re in a “legal state”, I think fanduel and draft kings.

I won’t post a referral link as I’m sure that’s against rules here. Mods please delete if me providing this info is against the rules. I’m just super excited now!

So the Jazz have win 18 in a row against the Bucks in Utah. The last time the Bucks won, Stockton and Malone played for the Jazz. It's this the longest losing streak to one team on the road?

If you want to start stupid things like judging the favorites after 7 games I have a better idea - Let's judge them after 1.

Lakers lost to Clippers without PG so ESPN was right!


I don't think you can deny that judging them on 8 games is better than 1 which is better than during training camp. I agree it's not enough to call them the favorites, but it's enough to prove that the off season predictions were way off base.

You guys were shooting threes because shooting in the paint was not a good option with the laker bigs inside. You guys will have to hit your threes if you want to beat us next time.

I need slow motion. Doesn’t look like a travel though. Shame

Well, it was a contested layup and he wanted to pull an Iceman Gerving by rolling it up hiiiigh above the outstretched arm of the shot blocker into the rim but pushed it too hard so it missed the basket.
Still it looked bad but it wasn't a open layup or smt

Not disagreeing there. We do need to convert on the 3s. Just felt we should've attacked McGee more and looked for what the defense was giving us.

I understand Vogel’s intention to give a vet like KCP more reps but come on now. The first guys off the bench should be Caruso, Dwight and Kuzma. It’s not rocket science here.

Then KCP, Daniels and Cook. He shoukd not have KCP and Kuzma together for long stretches at least until Kuzma gets rolling.

If Vogel does this we win by 20+ tonight.
