Hawks & Knicks are about to win again.
We are dropping back to the 6 seed - 1 full game behind the Hawks & a 1/2 game behind the Knicks.
And the Heat are right on our ass.
We really do need to keep winning.
Nights like last night are **** unacceptable.

Gonna post this in the GT & the updated Seeding Thread.

Celts get a break against Brooklyn because Harden is out and maybe KD also.

Just beat the Suns!

Well, the Knicks just keep on winning. 7-game winning streak now, though it's good that they beat the Hawks. Meanwhile, the Heat look rejuvenated again and might be primed for another winning streak.

Our loss to the Bulls could end up being huge if we get pushed to the play-in tournament. The Knicks, Hawks, and Heat show no signs of slowing down, and the Hornets are gonna get Hayward and LaMelo back soon. Buckle up, these last few weeks will be a roller-coaster when it comes to seeding, and I foresee lots of frustration ahead.

Joel Embiid > Gordon Hayward. (I'd have said that more emphatically, but obviously there was vastly more on the line in Hayward's case.)

My timeline on Twitter is filled with happy Knicks fans. When the Nets were hot, the timeline was silent. I think KD and Kyrie really messed things up and chose the wrong team. They would be gods. Now, they’re playing second fiddle behind Julius Randle. Lol

I can only imagine how loud MSG would be with a full capacity crowd there. That's what sucks about this season.

Even if the Nets win three straight titles, I doubt they'll be supported by the majority of New Yorkers. That team is built for bandwagoners and clueless casual fans, with three of the most unlikeable superstars ever. I hope KD enjoys being unloved for the years to come, especially since he seems to crave the universal adoration that Curry has :nod:

I just saw that Draymond had 19 assists and 6 turnovers last night. Ratio is still good, but those are kinda insanely high numbers on both counts.

Yeah, and I guess I kind of benefited as I just picked him up in my fantasy league earlier that day.

The Knicks have a magic about them this year man. That D-Rose trade is paying off hard for them
We can be a really good team for 12-18 minutes per game.

The Knicks, Hawks & Heat are going to be difficult.

After 5-7 competitive years in the last 50 (early 70s & mid 90s), it is good the NBA has a watchable team in the Big Cantalope. I must say that Randle has really & truly transformed himself & Rose still has some juice.

I the regular season I agree, in a 7 game series I have full confidence.

The Houston Rockets every game, "Please, The Kelly Olynyk, don't hurt them."

Olynyk, "I must."

The Houston Rockets every game, "Please, The Kelly Olynyk, don't destroy them."

Olynyk, "I must."

The Houston Rockets every game, "You can't."

Olynyk, "I must."

The Houston Rockets every game, "Please don't, think of the draft pick."



11 11 11

A message.

Olynyk is reminding everyone about the war.

11 assists. 11 free throw attempts. 11 free throws.
Markelle has Faults, Lonzo can't Ball, Jayson Tatum is the best player in his draft.

Knicks go for 10 in a row tonight against the Suns who just played Brooklyn last night.

The Suns have 16 games in April. That seems super high to me but I just checked and the Celtics have 16 in April too... this is an aberration due to COVID right? I don't recall teams playing this often in previous years.

And for everyone who was sad about not getting Drummond - I hope you’ve been paying attention to how he’s been doing in LA. (Spoiler alert - Laker fans hate him).
