No Butler and potentially no Teague tonight for the Wolves. This is a game the Nuggets have to win.

They probably will.

I think all the home teams are winning tonight.

Well I don't want to see the Wizards in the first round so hoping they can win tonight.

I know CJ McCollum is supposed to be good and his numbers tell me that he's good, but every time I watch him I'm underwhelmed. In a somewhat related note, Chris Paul and James Harden are really good at basketball.

Interesting... I get the opposite. He's always torching the Cavs or some other team when I'm watching.

Probably just a matter of sample size. He's sucked against the Rockets this season, and I've only caught portions of maybe 1-2 other Blazers games this year.

I get the same feeling as you on him. His numbers say otherwise when it comes to his overall seasons, but the past couple seasons I saw him play against the Raptors (and the random other Blazer games I see), he hasn't really done too well.

I'm absolutely stunned that W/O Butler, the T'wolves might actually miss the playoffs, despite being in a secure spot before Jimmy got hurt.

Also, hopefully the Clippers stay alive in their playoff hunt... I'm sure I'm probably the only one hoping for a 6 or 7 team tie for the the last 5 seeds out west :laugh2:

Anyone else notice that LeBron NEVER EVER wants to grab the ball and give it to the inbounder after an opponent made shot? That **** pisses me off.

Like, are you too much of a ****ing tool to get the ball for your own guy???

You know if the Wiz win tonight, there will probably be articles saying that Lue is the reason for the Cav's problems all season (seeing as they were very good w/o him).

this is what scares me about the wizards... there are games where everything just starts going in.. I fear the wizards more than i do the raptors. Also GIVE US THAT 3 SEED BOYYYYYYY

I've never noticed that but will look for it now.

It's amazing how much better the Cavs are when they actually try.

Lakers + Giants

As of right now Giannis is overrated to me. Good numbers guy, has all the tools except shooting but doesn't impact winning.

LeBron
KD
Curry
Harden
Kawhi
Westbrook
Jimmy/AD
AD/Jimmy

Top 8 in order, don't think I'm forgetting anyone.

And it's hilarious to me some of you talk like the Bucks are a legit threat. They're he worst team in the East playofffs.

Ty Lue just announced that Jeff Green will start for the remainder of the regular season and the playoffs and that Larry Nance Jr might be bumped from the rotation entirely.

I'm soooo angry. I'm walking away and taking a break. See y'all when the regular season is over with.

Okay, nevermind. I might have been misinformed about the Larry Nance part.

They're saying the reason LeBron is leaving this summer is because Gilbert is a huge trump supporter and him and LeBron don't see eye to eye.

Jokic having one of his worst shooting nights of his career, 3-15. Can't make wide open 3s, can't even make layups right now. He's impacting the game in other ways with 8 assists. But he picked a really bad time to have an off shooting night.

TWolves will probably trade Wiggins in the offseason. He's regressed.

Really dumb challenge by Towns. He's now fouled out.

Worst shooting night of Jokic's career, 5-19, yet Denver might be able to steal this one. It would only be fair, after the way he's carried them all year. But we'll see.

The Nuggets pulled through! What a game!

Who would take him, though? And what else would it cost them to get rid of him?

Some team will always be intrigued by his potential and he's still young. But I just feel like he's not going to improve.

He just signed a $146 million deal over 5 years. Ouch. If someone like the Magic take a chance, sure. But holy jeez.

Denver wins out and their in. Denver goes 2-1 with their only loss against LA they are in. If the finish with the same record as OKC who has Houston and Miami left we are in (1gm back). Finish with the same record as NO, who plays SAS, Warriors, Clippers we are in(.5 game back).

If Minny misses out I'll be pissed. I'm hoping the Nuggets don't get in, only team I would rather watch them over is the Kawhi-less Spurs.
