Philly just scored 69 in one half on the bucks, and are absolutely beating the brakes off them

Personally think they're the team to beat in the East. Only team they don't match up well with is the raptors.

I wouldn't be much worried about the points conceded. They were defending fine, the Sixers were just shooting lights out today. Happens.

What the Bucks should be worried about is Giannis not being able to do anything against Embiid all game. I felt awkward at one point, it was so bad.

Nice little run to end the half. Good atmosphere as well, a WCF series against the Clippers would be so much fun.

They are still shit though, winning vs the Rockets don't make them less shit.
They are having a season off and will have a good pick in the draft because of it. Long term they are in a much better position than Rockets. Hell, even if we are looking at next season they should probably be better than Houston if they manage to trade Russell for something and get a good pick (it’s not unthinkable that they trade a top 3 pick + Russell for a star either).

From a recent Ramona Shelburne article.

"The Golden State Warriors were unable to re-sign Kevin Durant this offseason. Another MVP could be headed to the Bay Area in due time, however.
ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reported Monday on The Jump that the Warriors "have always been the big threat" to sign Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo when he becomes a free agent in 2021."

If it was good enough for KD. You never know. ;)

As a United fan I'm used to being average nowadays so meh.

Not a chance. No assets to trade for him and no cap space to get him in free agency. Sign and trade also impossible for the same reason (hard cap if you sign & trade).

That's 4.

Nice to win but I'm not sure it's for the best long term. To hell with it. Woohoo!

With flattened odds it’s not really that important to lose as much as you can. Very little difference between being the worst and fifth worst, and no difference between being the worst and the third worst other than a better worst case scenario (if you aren’t drawn in top 4 you end up with no. 5 at worst).

insane game at warriors vs mavs, 41:41 after 1Q! :lol:
Russel cant miss a shoot, think he had over 15 in half a quarter and Doncic was 2, 3 minutes short of a triple double:lol:

How's this for a stat?

Number of triple-doubles before the age of 21 years of age

Doncic - 17 (thus far)
Magic - 7
Lebron - 5

By any standard that's something else.

What a way to end the year for the Suns!

Hopefully we stay healthy and show what we can do for the rest of the season and get that 35 wins target.

Heading over to NY next week so would love to fit in either a Nets or Knicks game.

Anyone know if it's generally cheaper to get tickets early or wait closer to gametime on stubhub/seatgeek?
