How many leads will be blown before Draymond Green returns??
I’m emotionally preparing myself for a very upsetting, disrespectful-feeling exit from the playoffs. Hopefully it’s at least WCF but I’m having serious doubts.
Knicks routed the Clippers 116-93. Tonight must've been a trap game for the Clippers.
Oh look … second best record in the NBA, the Golden State Warriors.
Nuggets got four games in five nights straight. How will they handle the @Kings and the vs. Warriors back-to-back on Wednesday and Thursday? Will they:
A. Rest their starters for the @Kings game and play their full roster for the vs. Warriors game
B. Rest their starters for the vs. Warriors game and play their full roster for the @ Kings game
C. Play everyone in both of the games
Jokic with a 48 point triple double tonight. Lord have mercy on our guys tomorrow. Let's hope he will still be tired.
Denver played Jokic and Gordon 43 minutes each tonight. I know the Warriors want to play their starters for home games but man it feels like a missed opportunity to not go try to get a W against a more relevant team in the standings. And then leave the high minute players in Denver and go take a likely beating against the Clippers at home.
You know, as bad as things seem:
1. We getting Dray back soon
2. Utah/Dallas don’t exactly have easy looking schedules, kinda think we do end up staying above them at #3 seed
Nuggets beat the Pelicans 138-130 in overtime and snapped the Pelicans win streak. Pelicans didn't have Valanciunas in the game from 2 minutes left in the 4th quarter since he fouled out, so they had no one to stop Jokic.
Yay! We are back to #2 seed.
Atleast for one more day. Grizz, Jazz nipping at our butt with Mavs and Denver not far behind. I really hope we win one of the Denver games.
"You can do it" (cue Rob Schneider)
Nuggets-Pelicans game tied at 124-124 and heading to overtime.
“Despair, or folly?' said Gandalf. 'It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not. It is wisdom to recognize necessity, when all other courses have been weighed, though as folly it may appear to those who cling to false hope. Well, let folly be our cloak, a veil before the eyes of the Enemy."
Looks like Rockets will beat the Grizzlies tonight. Grizzlies played against the Magic last night, so it looks like Memphis ran out of energy in the 2nd half.
Curry isn't a number one. His entire life has been about the kid who wasn't good enough to make it to the next level. He looks at the basketball court, the double teams, the trick defenses, the early pressure and thinks to himself, "Why me? I thought you didn't consider me. I thought I was an afterthought." Curry is not a number one.
He is troubled now by history. We want the past. We want what was. We want the eminent repeat, we want to turn on channel 9 at 3 am and catch the original Star Trek episode "Arena." Kirk faces the Lizard Captain. "I weary of the chase. Wait for me, and I shall be merciful."
It's a rough life out there now. But Curry is waiting, his brethren healing, his discontent souring, and his history of rising above expectations chomping at the bit.

"Coffee is for closers." My suggestion for a new coach. Watch it all.
Suns now 3-3 without CP3 (yes, some of those games were without Booker as well).
