Dallas was down 23 points to OKC going into the 4th quarter last night. They went on a NBA record 30-0 run and actually had the lead with a few minutes left. They ultimately lost by 6. Weird game.

30-0 in the NBA is idiotic….probably 15 possessions without scoring while other team scores nearly every time?

I didn’t watch much but when I did Myles Turner was looking absolutely helpless against him.

No. Semis and Finals of IST were not regular season games. All other games for IST were and count. 

Those stats will count towards IST numbers and records — which means nothing now, but might be a real thing in 25 years.

Basketball reference had LeBron’s stats on his game log for the semis vs NO

Draymond going to fuck around and start WW3 if he doesn’t stop assaulting European centers. 

Wonder what mild suspension he’ll get this time.

Wild night. The o/u on Bucks - Pacers is 257.5 which hits over thanks to Giannis scoring 64 which is a franchise record. He of course wants the game ball but the Pacers, on the road, have taken it to give to their rookie Oscar Tshiebwe who scored his first and only NBA point. But, he actually has scored, but it was in the season tournament which we discussed doesn’t really count. And Giannis is pretty pissed and even storms to Indiana’s locker room looking for the ball. 

A playoff series between these teams would be fun.

Giannis shot 32 free throws, and considering he takes all of the allowed ten seconds (and then some) to take the free throw attempt, I’m sure this game was nine hours long.

So many possessions where the defense doesn’t even try

So, now that their losing streak is at 25 games, I guess it's time to have a fun discussion about the Detroit Pistons.

Namely:

1. Will they ever win another game? If so, who will be the utterly humiliated victim? I thought Utah, playing without half their team, would be as good a chance as they have, but they lost that one.

2. When the season is over, where will they rank as far as Worst Pro Sports Teams Of All Time? Looks like in 2011-12, Charlotte was 7-59 in a lockout shortened year. Detroit would have to pick up the pace to hit that win percentage!

It’s crazy they started the season 2-1 and then would lose at least the next 25 straight.  

Bold prediction: they beat Brooklyn Tuesday.

I thought Philly had like a 9-72 season? I’m out in the NBA trivia so I could be way off with the wrong team lol
