I refuse to believe that anyone actually thought Andre Drummond was worth getting for even free. One of the biggest losers in NBA history.

Just looking at the standings, I can't believe how BIG the loses to OKC and Chicago are for Boston.
Boston will never win 18 BECAUSE of Brad Stevens

Wait until they have even worse losses in the next couple weeks.

It's crazy to me that people are fervently against the play-in tournament.

Look at this end of season race, nearly every game last night had implications for the play-in... Either fighting making it or fighting to stay out of it. It's like the playoffs have started two weeks early, sandwiched in the middle of the actual playoffs will be a sudden death match.

I'm sorry, but this last stretch of the schedule has me excited about the NBA again.

Btw, Knicks have a really tough schedule- @MEM, @PHX, @LAC... Hope they lose 3-4 games, which seems likely.
Good assessment:

Kevin Porter Jr just dropped an efficient 50/5/11 game on the Bucks, at 20 years old.

9-15 on 3s (and he's still only at .319 from 3 on the season).

A lefty drops 50/11 after makin it rain at the strip club? Houstonians can relax. Harden's legacy is secured. Hell, it's like he never left.

So it occurred to me that Myles Turner is such an amazing player absolutely no one around the league even noticed or cares that he's likely out for the season. The C's not trading for him was the talk of the GB all offseason and then I don't think I saw one comment about him going down a few weeks ago. And of course no mention of how bad the Pacers are this year. But multiple constant threads about us being bad, with Pacers fans chiming in, even though we are not as bad. Ok just wanted to vent about that lol. Carry on.

Myles Turner whose claim to fame is that he's an outside shooter who shoots the 3 below league average. But if you need a pure drop coverage big to block some shots, he's your man. Is he just Luke Kornet who gets minutes?

Can't wait for yet another off-season in which the Pacers can't find anyone to take Myles Turner.

I found this weird too, wasn't he making noise as a DPOY candidate early on?

I think C's fans were mad because Turner would've been a nice compensation for Hayward's departure, instead of having him leave for nothing like he did. Ainge got the TPE which eventually led to Fournier, but I can understand people's frustration at the time. I wouldn't have minded Turner, but it's clear that Ainge and co. probably never thought that highly of him. It's paying off now with Time Lord being a game-changer for us, and Fournier being a solid piece moving forward.

On another note, nobody really gives a **** about the Pacers lol. They are as irrelevant and uninspiring as they come, which is a shame because they have quite a number of talented players on their roster.

Unreal how good this dude is, I thought he'd be a fun player who was ultimately gonna be way too inefficient to be good.

Underhanded full-court pinpoint pass amidst some traffic. What a joke.

The Warriors drafted some useless big over this guy. Shades of Marvin Bagley.

Eric Collins is amazing, too. I want to hear this guy announce a game that is actually important.

Pacers are up 57 on the Thunder, Sabonis has 26/19/14 in 30 minutes.

That loss by us was amazing.
