So that was a fun game with the desired outcome. Question; was there some reason the Lakers did not go after Gerald Green? I mean if heís just sitting there on his couch looking for something to do how did Houston get him?


I recall he was the guy I really wanted in 2005 when we drafted Bynum After Boston moved him in that Garnett trade, his career never seemed very stable after that...had a couple good years in PHX. My guess his services just were not in much demand...his numbers in Boston last year were not impressive...even the year before that in Miami was not very productive.

If Boston luckily gets #1 and Ayton. GAME OVER NBA. 7'1 260. Embiid/D. Robinson clone. 20/12/2/2 stats so far at Arizona State. Also Hayward just has to be healthy and come off the bench till he's 100% when he gets back next season.

Kyrie
Brown
Tatum
Horford
Ayton

Smart, Rozier, Hayward, Morris, Baynes... Bench.

Lakers vs Boston 2019 Finals.

Tuned into the Clippers game after Blake went out but just saw a video of the hit on Twitter, didn't look good at all. Hoping his recovery goes well. I'd be heavily surprised if he wasn't out for multiple games.

Steph with the Harden-esque stat line: 15 three pointers attempted, 6 two pointers attempted, 16 free throws

(Mercifully) Boston can't get the #1 overall pick. If the Lakers pick falls between 2-5 the Celtics get it. If it's the #1 overall or 6-30 Philly gets it and Boston would (in all likelihood) end up with Sacramento's unprotected #1 in 2019.

Got back from the Bucks/Pacers game surprised at what a blowout that was. Even if the Pacers took it easy in the 4th.

A couple of injury scares though.

Club seats I got a good view of him. I knew he was tall of course( Thon Maker seemed much bigger in comparison)

I expected a better performance out of Giannis even though I was rooting for the Pacers I guess it was not his day.

Yet I witnessed Grant Hill score a career high 49 points a few years back.

For some reason I'm watching the Bulls and Knicks go to overtime after an ugly end to the 4th Q with multiple turnovers, an anti-clutch airball from Kris Dunn, and Michael Beasley tipping in a few of his own misses.

By far the best play was Nwaba defending Beasley in the post under a minute and packing his shot back in his face, controlling the ball, and outleting it...for a fastbreak missed three from Markkanen.

Jarrett Jack just did the old "inbound the ball off Kris Dunn's back and score a game tying layup" trick. What a crazy, sloppy game.

And holy crap! Porzingis just dunked it to tie the game and send it to 2OT!

Both of these teams need better PGs. Dunn hit a prayer running hook in the second OT so he'll look like the hero, but he's been terrible down the stretch with multiple turnovers and poor jumpers.

Jarrett Jack is the veteran and threw the ball away on a fastbreak with the Knicks down two.

Just terrible.

Their mini hot streak seems to be over. The PG13 dream is still alive in LA!

Oh, and Bulls beat the Knicks 122-119 in 2OT with a clutch Holiday jumper and Markkanen FTs. It was a fun game that both teams should've rightfully lost lol.

Cousins with his typical 5 TOs, including one on the potential game winning shot.
