The worst team in the NBA is not the Phoenix Suns. That distinction is currently shared by the Bulls and the Cavaliers. The Suns are currently a covering machine.

I appreciate that, but I think I gotta agree with Moneybags9. The decision to go forward with a play on the Magic after learning that Vucevic was taking the night off was a horrible one.

I called it at 47-31. I spare myself as much agony as I can.

That was an unpleasant hour of basketball. The Spurs swished 10 of their 15 three-point attempts. Open shots are easy shots.

The Spurs and Magic have been taking turns destroying each other over the last two seasons. It looks like the tradition continues.

Aaron Gordon gets paid over $21 million per season? For what??

Well, now I know. The Magic stink without the big guy. No inside game and no shooters. Meanwhile the Spurs shooters are silky smooth.

This matters more than you think, and I'm wondering if books have the full capacity to that into consideration.


You're absolutely right.  League Pass junkies, let your voices be heard.

One hour, actually.

The Magic were back in Orlando on Saturday night after playing the Jazz in Mexico City on Saturday afternoon.  The Spurs hosted the Sixers on Monday night and I assume traveled to Orlando yesterday.

That was mentioned, yes, and as for the China trip comparison, no comparison.  Two hour time difference between Orlando and Mexico City.  Thirteen hour time difference between Orlando and Shanghai.  The flight from Orlando to Mexico City is just under 2,000 miles.  The flight from Orlando to Shanghai is just over 8,000 miles.

Thanks for that post, beginnerboy. Lots of good points to consider. This game is getting more interesting as the afternoon moves along.


You gotta love sports betting, right guys?

Actually, I’m not. Not yet anyway, and l won’t bite unless I get a great line. I’m tellin’ ya, I’m still bruised from that Jerebko tip-in from two months ago. Donovan Mitchell personally ruined that evening for me by shooting 0-7 in the 4th quarter and 7-23 overall.
