There is nothing we can do about this mess, so let's have some fun.

Pick your Over/under for these players .

Tacko Over/under is 15 points and 15 rebounds.

PP Over/under is 24 points and 8 asts.

Smart gets 3 Over/Unders. 26 points, 7 asts. and 12 - 3 attempts

C Edwards Over/under 15 points

A Nesmith - Over/Under 16 points

Theis - Over/Under 16 points 15 rebounds

J Teague Over/Under 16 points and 8 floaters attempted

Waters - Over/Under 14 points 5 asts

Speak now or forever hold your predictions...

Oh and Yes I am pumped for PP Tacko and Nesmith :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon:

In a unique situation like this where the whole team is decimated I would expect no less from any player for that matter, even Tatum.


Absolutely, it’s crazy. With Jaylen doubtful, Smart may take 30 shots tonight lol.


I'll take the over.

All there is to it.

It’s a little more nuanced than that but there is some truth to it. It’s the coaches job to put his players in the best position to win. Sticking with lineups that clearly don’t work and trying to force a square peg in a round hole doesn’t do a service to anyone. Nevermind the fact that they continue to blow big leads on a nightly basis while the coach stands there and watches it happen. His lack of feel for momentum of the game is staggering. And it’s been a problem for years now.


I feel much less alone after reading your comment.. exactly how I've been seeing it. I don't think he has it in him.

Statistical studies have confirmed that timeouts do not significantly impact big runs. Google is friend. All it does is give fans and coaches an illusion of control.

Man this is a weird situation if the game gets played.

Waters 5-11
Edwards 5-11
Pritchard 6-1
Teague 6-3
Smart 6-3
Nesmith 6-5
Theis 6-8
Fall 7-5

Not only is this approximately a Summer League roster, but 5 of the 8 available players are PG-sized. Tacko is in line to play a whole game. This could be a historic defeat.

I was starting to look forward to the 4 PG + Tacko lineup.

Teague/Payton/Waters/Smart/Tacko would had been a riot, lol.

Wow. That is like a JV squad in terms of height...

On the positive side, I don't think any fans will have wasted their money on tickets to see this spectacle. Can't say the same for the NBA League Pass folks.

I'll just finish by complimenting/congratulating you all on your sense of humor for tonights game and also for the Pritchard pick. The kid is absolutely ballin' and looks great out there. Fantastic find.

I had place a bet on the spread this morning when it was 6, so I bet on Miami to cover. It then jumped to 9.5. So much for that. Lol

Need a victory cigar thread so we can speculate who smokes it. I know it would have been either Tacko, Pritchard or Neismith.

If this was the Lakers, they're shutting it down easily. But it's us and Philly and Dallas so they'll turn a blind eye


Pretty much. Might've been the same for Giannis, as he is the next chosen one.
Good assessment:

Regular Season is slowly turning into a joke. Might aswell just cut it drastically and go into the post season bubble early.

Well good news for the Celtics because I'm not sure how much of a game would have been.

I was kinda looking forward to seeing a lot of the kids get extended playing time but postponing this game is certainly for the best

:) Haha...this is comedy...Miami does not have 8 available players, how is this possible?

11 guys played yesterday in Mia win in washington, plus others on bench. Ok Avery Bradley tested positive ...looks like multiple MIa players will be also out days.

Time to stop this season,

Philly, Bos, Mia, Dallas are already 4 teams missing half players.
