At least I thought so, until they just beat the Nuggets 105-87. How can a team give up 136 points to a 22nd ranked offense and hold one of the top 5 offenses to 87. It makes no sense, and that is superentertaining.
    Tonight's Boston-Denver game is why I don't bet on basketball. The Nuggets came in on fire and the Celtics have been a basket case. Yet, like you said, they suddenly remembered how to play defense. They've been getting better at it with the Time Lord at the 5, but I still figured Denver would own them. Completely wrong.

    And you're right, highly entertaining.

    Just watched the replay...ouch. Not a great idea to try and press off of the same leg youve stretched out for a fake/jab step. Not that players don't do that but he extended that left leg a good way out there and tried to use it to move back inside and yeah....he ended up in a lot of pain. I'll be shocked if he's back by March. I'd assume he shredded it.

    That is a big blow to Denver’s playoff expectations. They really rely on him for creating offense in end of game situations.
    Just last week Denver was riding an 8 game winning streak, and playing as well as anyone in the league.

    Don't think they can win any playoff series without him. 1st Rd exit.

    Done for a year, certainly through the All-Star break next season.

    Some painful losses tonight for teams chasing playoff slots. The Hornets lost to the Cavs. The Spurs lost to the Raps. The Bulls lost to the Magic. And the Pels lost to the Knicks.

    The 10th slot in the East is going to be something to watch. The Bulls, Raps, Wizards and Cavs are separated by two games.

    There's some intrigue for the #6 slots at this moment too. If Miami loses to Denver, the Knicks will end the night in the #6 slot. If Dallas beats Memphis it will be only one game back of Portland for the #6 slot in the West.

    GSW looks like it's going to pull itself up a slot to #9 in the West (and possibly one game out of 8th), and Indiana may only be one game back of the Hornets for 8th in the East. Both of those teams seem like they're in stride for a strong finish.

    Lamarcus Aldridge just announced his retirement. He has been dealing with an irregular heartbeat.

    Sad to hear that. Definitely not a way you want to see anybody's career end. My guess is he was going to be the big the Nets used to close out their games in the playoffs. He gave them a dimension they didn't have.

    Brooklyn has been snake-bit all season, yet they've found a way to post a pretty solid record.

    They don't have a big who can protect the rim anymore. That may cost them.

    You don't buy into the notion DJ's just saving it up for the playoffs? Next you'll tell me Blake's not going to unleash the dunks.

    They're going to have to hope KD, Blake, Kyrie, Harden, and Harris can shoot Philly and Milwaukee out of the playoffs.

    It'll be fun to see if they can.

    Jrue Holiday fixed himself a Trae Young sandwich tonight.
