Mavericks looking pretty good. Porzingis has 32 with about 6 minutes left.

Donic working on a triple double - needs two more assists. Tim Hardaway Jr has 22

Love the sgt pepper album cover style fans in the crowd. They should have some fun with it.

Major choke by Doncic - shot a couple of air balls in the last few minutes.

This isn't too bad, seems way better than MLB.
Baseball is a slow sport. Guys waiting for a ball to be hit to them (sometimes never) or guys waiting to hit. Basically only rallies or a dominating pitcher generates fan buzz. Tight scores generate anticipation/suspense equal or better than all other sports, making late innings special.

Perfect sport to chill or multi-task. I will say slow is not necessarily boring, as I have learned growing old.

Baseball has only itself to blame for 2 hour games becoming 3.5 hour games. That said, the lack of a clock and the fact that the home team gets last raps makes it differently better than other sports. It's a shame the ADD generation doesn't like pitchers duels.

Good to see I’m not wasting time watching this.

nba will never change.
You don't watch the NBA because Marcus Smart whines about the correct call being made?

I watched the game, that was a blocking foul. Smart didn't establish position before Giannis was into his jump.
on that call yes.

but if you don’t think the nba does exactly what He says, I got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you

The product is so much better than I thought it would be.
Which shows that preseason and practice is not needed. ;)
Just get on the floor and shoot, shoot, shoot.

I really like watching the restart. The focus on the game itself is refreshing.

Nice win for Houston.

I'm a Celtics fan Smart is my second favorite players and I can't complain about that call

It could have gone either way but seemed to be more blocking than charge.

If you get the YES network you can see Shabazz and the Wizards vs, the Nets today at 2:00. He's been starting for the Wiz, played well in the preseason, not a great 1st game on Friday though (4 for 13, 4 TO).

I loved the trade for Warren when it happened. The Knicks get more press for their incompetence, but Phoenix is actually the worst organization in the NBA.

If Kemba is still hurt after this long off a layoff that should be very concerning longterm.
Yeah. The fact that Brad isn't using his minutes down the stretch also makes me he doesn't think he can count on him.

Was it impossible for him to get surgery with the Covid lockdown or is it something they can't fix?

Not sure about his options but its the same knee he had issues with back at UConn, I remember he had his meniscus cleaned up prior to his junior year. DWade had something similar done when he was at Marquette and it ended up affecting him later on towards the end of his career as the cartilage in his knee deteriorated over time.

Right. You let us know when the last time MLB had games that came close to averaging 2 hrs. Is there a media narrative you won't buy hook, line, and sinker ?
