as long as the LOLakers lose now all will be right in the world for today

Memphis (without Morant) beat the Nets (with Durant and Irving). I'm impressed. I keep hearing that they're a very young team so they won't go far the playoffs. I think they are for real a threat.

They sure look like the real deal.

Kuminga felt the full fury of the BS rookie whistle tonight. Amazing to see his force grow each game

Does it count if I listened on the radio?

Also - come on Rockets. Turn on those afterburners.

I was told we were gonna lose our last ten games, or something.

0-12 I believe somebody said.

We win, Jazz loose, Grizz win. 2 out of 3 so far.

I love listening to loose Jazz. I'm also happy when the Jazz lose :)

Expand full comment

Haha I did this about 3 weeks ago. Type loose I mean, vice listening to jazz!

My biggest fear was they’d wear out with the short roster on the back end of B2B. Nonsense.

Playing the young guys has a lot of advantages. Seems like it really has all year.

Rooting for Phoenix at the TWolves, don't want them in the 6 spot.

Expand full comment

me too, feels weird rooting for them tho

Expand full comment

Yes sir!

Expand full comment

meanwhile, PHX-MIN is a battle (Suns down 94-93 with 8:35 left)

a Phoenix win would be real nice for keeping the play-in distant as a possibility

Expand full comment

wow, KAT just got called a flagrant for holding off Ayton with his arm on a drive and elbowing him in the face

Expand full comment

Seems like he used that one on us and somehow we fouled him last time they played.

Expand full comment

I want Memphis to have to face the TWolves in Round 1.

Expand full comment

That would be fun to watch

So all this tells me is that Wiggs and Klay minutes need to be separated. Klay off the bench sounds so wrong but may be better for team in short term.

Expand full comment

you could start both & still have them mostly playing separate minutes by staggering their rests

Expand full comment

like, if they both play 32 minute, you could have 16 minutes (starting & closing halfs) with them on the court together & 32 minutes where they're apart

Expand full comment

Since Kerr is insisting on starting Klay, Wiggins should move the the bench and Poole should start.

Expand full comment

Ha! I knew the young ones would play hard! What a game!

Expand full comment

Honestly, it's more than playing hard. Kuminga was playing really good defense for what I saw (second quarter on). And, just driving on anyone that didn't match up physically. If he plays like this in the playoffs, he's going to wear teams out some nights (or force double teams).

Expand full comment

He is going to be a PROBLEM for the league for a long time!

Clearly this team has been held back by Curry, Klay, Dray, Otto, and Andre

Expand full comment

Andre? Who’s that?

Expand full comment

IMHO it is true only on Kuminga by Dray

Expand full comment

There may be some truth to the Klay part. :-(

It’s true

But we’re not chasing regular season wins here

Expand full comment

The future is now!

Expand full comment

Unexpected. Was hoping the young guns would be able to close out a win, but I didn’t have faith they would be in position to. Happy to eat my dish of crow. What a win!

Expand full comment

And I thought this was going to be a throw away game. lol
