Watched a lot of games this early season, dang near all of them... I don't like this bubble-lite bball. Just looks too easy for guys. Need the 6th man fans, I need the players to have more distractions.

Not just because Christian would win for 31 points and 13 rebounds but he did it at extremely high percentage of shots something Like 14 out of 21 shots or something. Hes been amazing .
Boston will never win 18 BECAUSE of Brad Stevens

Mavs 62, Clippers 18. Not a typo.
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

74-25 now and still getting worse. This is nutty.

Edit: 50 point lead at the half. Largest halftime margin in NBA history.

All-time beat-down alert.
I can’t remember ever thinking of a “Triple up Watch”!

Worst NBA margin in history is 68 points. LAC trails DAL 27-77 at halftime.

Oh hell. When the half ended NBATV said it was the biggest halftime lead in history so I took their word for it.

They might be right — 68 points is the worse loss in history — for the full game.

I’m trying to lookup largest halftime deficits but first results are all about biggest deficits teams have come back from to win.

I was told Ty Lue is a good coach. So this is what his coached teams look like without multiple superstars?

Ick, using Quora:
What was the biggest lead in NBA history?
En route to the biggest blowout in NBA history, the Cavs 148–80 over the Heat on Dec 17th, 1991, Cleveland lead by 73 points, 148–75, in the final minute.

Up to that point, the final quarter’s score was 42–8, and the 2nd half score was 75–22 (ultimately 75–27, the 48 point margin is tied for the record for any half).

Notably, the Heat’s coach benched his starters early in the 2nd half, when trailing “only” by 26.

https://www.quora.com/What-was-the-biggest-lead-in-NBA-history

This would imply a 50pt halftime lead is in fact an NBA record, though a message board post somewhere else said the record was 52 (still digging).

41 points is the postseason record (we were on the losing end of that one).

In 1991, the Warriors led the Kings by 47 at halftime, but I can't tell if that is/was a record.

Bball reference says the 50pt halftime lead is in fact a record.. by a full three points! Only 8 times previously had a halftime lead been >40 points: https://stathead.com/tiny/eMwhS

I feel like Ballmer and the Clips front office did their job and put together a great roster... but they still suck. This is a good reminder that the whole GM thing is hard and not everything that looks good on paper translates to real life.

Wtf. Clippers actually looked really good the first two games and were moving the ball well.

Gordon Hayward had 28 points, 6 rebs, and 7 assts as the Hornets downed the Nets 106-104. Rozier added 19.
My name's Henry Connor.
Conner Henry was a Celtic.
Hence the pun.

Ainge would've been GOAT gm if he took Fultz of the Sixers for nothing. They literally dumped his salary to sign Horford and make room for Tobias. lol. The lost went they traded for him and they lost when they traded him away.

Fultz is finally looking like what he was supposed to be. Tatum/Fultz/Brown! lol.
