The Pacers gagged away a victory against the Warriors.

Celtics give ( Giannis/Middleton/Jrue ) their first loss
Think they were at 13-0

Rockets go into ATL and win
Grizz been playing well without Ja and totally annihilated Philly

Middleton left the game in the first half, so I'm not counting this one.

The Suns do need some bench scoring...

Yeah, our primary bench guys are fine. It is the 3 stringers (and beyond) that aren't solid NBA-level talent.

Our only real bench problem is how bad CP15 has been this season.

I realize that it won't happen for a myriad of reasons, but I think the NBA would benefit from a significant break in the near future. Unfortunately, we'd see half the league go to Mexico or the Caribbean and probably still have the same issues with illnesses shortly after restarting.

Instead fans get to see G-League talent at NBA prices. What a deal!

Yeah, that wouldn't be fair to Mexico or the Caribbean with the spikes that they would see. ;)
