Wonder at what point New Orleans takes the training wheels off Zion. 15 minutes tonight.

Don’t get why Zion doesn’t play more

They rather be in the lottery vs being bounced in the first round of the corona playoffs.

NBA must be thrilled about his minute restrictions. You know they designed the system so he would be included. Opening night game and he plays 15 minutes. 

As others have said, at least include a few of those minutes for the end of the game?

Dallas 85
Houston 75
Oh this isn't a final it is the score at HALFTIME.

Fun game to watch absolutely no defense.

Seriously got a breaking news alert earlier that Meyers Leonard (a forward off the Heat bench) stood during the anthem. What’s worse, people were actually arguing if he was right or not do that.

I didn’t think this could be true at first but maybe you’re right. Got blown out tonight, 14 minutes for Zion. Why even fucking waste the trouble to go.

Lillard has been absolutely incredible these playoffs.

NBA announced today there’d be a bubble MVP award and it’s hard to argue against him. 61 points tonight in a must win game.

Booker maybe if the Suns get in and the Blazers dont. Warren could be 3rd or 4th. He was shut down last night.

I've watched a few games, but likewise, as it is still not the playoffs, I'm not as interested. I'll tune in I'm sure once we get deeper into the playoffs. 

Instead, I've just found myself watching more and more NHL. 

The Jackets being in and playing an insanely historic 5 OT game yesterday helps. But, even the other games, I am watching them more than the NBA right now.

The NBA bubble has been fantastic. I’m actually stunned they’ve pulled it off so well. The games have been better than any regular season matchup. 

Note: it helps when the 10 worst teams aren’t there.

My only complaint is I wish just this once they would have said top 16 teams instead of 8 from each conference. We’re about to have the 7 or 8 bubble wins Suns and Booker sent home but the Magic and their 6 game losing steak stick around. 

First round matchups are all set except for the Lakers. Clippers and Mavs should be awesome.

The 5 OT game ticked me off because I was watching Reds on Hulu but hockey game stayed on and then a 20 min postgame....hockey game started 3 hours before Reds and I only got to watch the last 10 min of the 10th inning.

I don’t watch a ton of NBA, but are these scores way higher than usual? Seems like a ton of high scoring games.
