I suggest they don't let the bubble burst.

Ja just went on a 7-0 run. When he's on he's the most entertaining player in the league imo

Had to run to the store when the Blazers were up 5 in the 2nd. Said to myself, "I'd bet my life the Grizzlies will be winning by the time I get home."

And, here we are.

I don't think I've actually witnessed them lose a game all season. Every game, every context, no matter how far behind they are, no matter how good the opponent, the moment I start paying attention, their win is assured.

All right Portland, when you have Mario Hezonja going one-on-three, you really don't deserve to win.

Ha, good point. Hadn't thought of that. Will have to put my theory to the test.

Although at that point our pick can no longer be impacted, so the cosmic scales will probably rebalance.

Since I've been called out for this multiple times before, let me state that I am not superstitious and this is just sarcastic griping.

This game is lit!

Really wish the NBA went the extra mile and customized these courts for the playoffs.

85 pts in the 1st half for Mavs. I think 90 points were from Trey Burke.

Why are people in the bubble wearing masks? Am I right in thinking that everyone has tested negative and no one can come and go freely? If so why does anyone need to wear masks or distance?

D’Antoni was asked & said he was doing it to set an example. I’d say the players & staff that are wearing it are doing it just to be extra cautious.

An example of what? I'm not in America but to me it seems silly that masks could possibly be a heated or even political issue. When you have people saying that masks are stupid in public to begin with, it seems to send a mixed message to then have the few people who could be out in America without a mask safely wear one. If I try to put myself in the mind of some far rightwing person, I could see myself watching the games and think, "see it's all nonsense. They don't need to wear them and they are doing it anyways just to rub it in our face."

Really not trying to be political or start anything, but I don't get it. I get to some extent that people are influenced by what they see on TV and seeing people wear masks might in some way help- but doesn't testing also help? Whatever- this is the wrong thread for this.

Denver's offense without Murray/Harris/Barton is woof so far
The greatest movie bet of all time:

"I want the Celtics to cover, I want Celtics halftime, I want Garnett points and rebounds."

I lost the bet so I Hate Truth18

Return to Boston Celtics
