They were still up by 18 and that’s with no Giannis, Middleton, or Bledsoe, but that was bad, haha

Everything has run smoothly so far and I saw someone make the point that although we get told 350 odd players all tested negative that the number of people including staff and what not will mean that number is much bigger so kudos to NBA
Still as good for the guys as this is , it still makes me a lil nervous
Guess I will have to see an article about who they will be housed :oops:

Looking back at the Grizzlies schedule this season, they have been in a slide going back to the allstar break. 5-13 since then. We've got to hope they lose one more. They put themselves in this position with a really strong 2 months leading up to the allstar break, but they didn't start or finish the season well at all. I really think the Spurs or Blazers would have taken 8th in an 82 game season.

We would've been 6th or 7th if someone didn't miss 25 games. Think we went 11-14 during that stretch, could've gone 14-11 or better. Hell, even 12-12 and we're not worrying about a play-in.

Funny thing is while the hiatus definitely helped us and we’re playing much better in the bubble, the shortened season hurts. I’d like our chances winning the 8 seed outright over the blazers if we had 10 more games...we’d easily beat Memphis.

The back to back losses to Golden State and Detroit are really coming back to haunt us now.

We started off 7-4 and should've been 9-2 but, ya know, refs. The Jazz game was straight taken from us.

that happens to everyone until you prove yourself. You have to over come it. And take care of business for the games you should win easily.

What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

LMAO @ pushup GIF. Sauce's personal version of hell would be sitting strapped into a chair with monitors all around him displaying that GIF on endless loop.

Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season!

I can't wait for the OKC HOU first round match up. That will be fun to see. CP3 will go fucking nuts in that series.
