Saw a carry, travel, and push off on that play. Literally the only thing I didn’t see was a foul on White.

I mean you can blame Joe, and it’s probably partially on him, but they are just coasting on both ends due to the opponent.
Kings are only 1 game out of the lead in the West and 8-2 in their last 10. But yeah, instinct would suggest otherwise.

Yes on League Pass. I’m in the Boston area and I cut the cord on cable. I think there are blackout restrictions for in market games. I guess I could do it via VPN.
Well, good luck out there.

How is that a foul on white? So far of what I've seen of this official has been awful.

where I was last at
you sure it wasn't the players playing bad?
If they're playing bad stop the game and talk it over.

If they're playing bad there's no reason to assume they will all of a sudden play good.

"You" saw the run coming as they were getting lazy on both ends. Imo a more proactive approach could have nipped it in the bud.

Yeah I get the Kings have a winning record but clearly the C’s aren’t into this like they would be against Milwaukee or Miami or Philly or Brooklyn

fwiw the research into whether TO's stop runs seems to suggest they have zero effect.

Probably not a good sign that the Kings are only shooting 22% from three, the Celts are 43%, and the Kings are down by only two.

I love with how overengineered halftime shows for marquee events have become, more routine events are still stuck in the 1980s. I feel like it wouldn’t take more than a few phone calls to get myself at half court of the United Center just flying tennis balls or frisbees into the stands at halftime of a Bulls game.

Yeah, but that’s the same kinda research that says player opt outs only benefit the player and that there are no clutch hitters.
not sure if this is sarcastic but in the case of "clutch" its more an absence of evidence issue whereas in this case there is a lot of data that affirmatively indicates it does not help much.

It’s sarcastic and he’s agreeing with you.

Feels like Sabonis is going to have as many boards as the Celtics will as a team.

For as talented as the Celts are, they struggle with legit rebounders. Grant has no chance against Sabonis.

Wierd how Brodgon came back from his injury break super hot from 3, but losing his touch near the rim

And why do we never see PP anymore. He is an energy booster that might be useful during the cheesy dickeries

Wasn't Scal just saying the exact opposite a few games ago about landing space and it was driving us crazy because it was like he'd never watched an NBA game in the last 2 years?
