I'm just glad Dallas is playing again. Had more than a week off with the weather. KP questionable. Hope some practice time helps the defense or it could get ugly tonight because I expect the offense to be sputtery.

Suns-Blazers should be a good one. CP3 is quietly putting up an almost 50/40/90 season at age 35.

Expect Portland to come out with 45 in the 1st quarter and follow it up with about 13 in the 2nd. They’ve been doing this a lot this season but ever since cj went down it’s been bad. Dame plays all 12 in the 1st and 3rd quarters and about half of the 2nd and 4th, so no surprise they’re awesome to start each half

Grizzlies vs Mavericks and Trailblazers vs Suns are the two games of the night. Luka vs Ja and Lillard vs Booker and CP3. The match ups do not look fair on paper but Dame and Ja will be playing on a basketball court. So they could still be very entertaining.

Wizards vs Lakers could be interesting(?). 4 games winning streak vs 2 games losing streak w/o AD

If the Lakers lose to the Wizards, Broni will be ripping his jersey while storming off the court at the end of the game :lol:

Jazz with the 12.5 point spread. I'll go ahead and say they cover.

Rockets look terrible. They are likely to keep their draft pick this year.

I've had this strange morbid interest in watching the Bulls as of late. They're really not that bad and Lavine is a **** fun player to watch. Will be interesting to see if they sell at the deadline as Satoransky and Thad Young could probably get a pretty decent return.

Kp was healthy before the disaster in Texas, we didn't play for literally a week, yet somehow he's injured and can't play now ))) God I hope we dump his ass for some expirings.

I was upset about how the Knicks FO excused their bad behaviour towards ours and justified it in sending PK to the Mavs, but in hindsight, I think we dodged a bullet there. Turns out they unwittingly did us a favour. Yeah hopefully you guys can find a taker. Luka needs consistency from a Robin-type player he can rely on and build chemistry with.

Every sane person knew it was a disaster, sending assets for a permanently injured player. Then Donnie doubled down on his horrible mistake by giving him the max... Luka needs to get out of there today.

Muha, voted the most negative being in existens, has entered the building...

Very tough start for muha when mavs leading, need to start being negative on the players not playing. Not too late tho, mavs have wasted leads before so he will get his chance

I think at the time it looked like the Knicks got fleeced. In hindsight given PK's inconsistent play, the deal isn't as far apart, but they also bizarrely handcuffed themselves by choosing to limit which teams they'd deal with. But anyway, fast forward to the max - that was a hard position for a team to be in. Lots of risks either way, and the Mavs, it seems, took on the financial risk to secure stability. But it hasn't translated. Luka can't keep getting overworked. There's only so much a player can do, great as he is. At least securing PK to that deal gives Mavs FO control of an asset. Hopefully they do something with it that balances out the roster and helps Luka. Of course keeping him and keeping him content there is the absolute priority.

Giannis going 1/10 was good. But Luka might beat him ))
