Cavs new-look look legit. They able to beat the Thunder @OKC with Westbrook, PG13, and Melo dressed up.

Yep, and almost no practice time together for the Cavs with the new guys.

Can definitely see them winning a title this year. Can't believe George Hill, Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson, and Larry Nance Jr are huge difference makers.

Oh, come on. This is such an overreaction lol They still aren't touching the Warriors, and it's still unclear that they can even get past both Boston and Toronto.

They've only beaten a slumping, exhausted Celtics team who was playing a matinee afternoon game being the third game in four nights and fourth game in six nights, and now they're going to beat a very, very inconsistent OKC team who legitimately just lost at home to a depleted Lakers team a week ago and have lost 5 of their last 7 games.

Let's withhold judgment on them "winning a title" until we see them actually play a good amount of games. Yeah, they certainly look better, but that was almost inevitable given how poorly they were playing before and how bad their locker room was.

Spurs lost to Denver last night and now they are sitting at a 35-24 record. Not bad, I know, but for the first time since I could grow facial hair, they look like they won't reach 50 wins winning %.
They lost 5 of the last 6, and are 10-12 since the new year. I guess that Kawhi's long absence has shown that even SAS and Pop can't overperform each time. They could still make it but it would take at least a 15-8 record to do so.
Like us, they have been excellent on defense (2nd) and below average on offense (17th), but they are missing the closer that we have (we are 1st and 22nd). Hence our better overall score IMO. So far they are slightly underperforming their point differential, while we are heavily overperforming it.

Does anyone actually enjoy listening to Bill Walton?

Dude sounds like the stoned older hippy at a house party that just creeps everyone out with his constant drizzle of nonsense.

I don't like him at all.  Combative with his co-commentators and frequently goes off on tangents that have nothing to do with the game at hand.

Also, I really dislike this Warriors team.  Whiny as hell.  Props to Klay Thompson for being the only one who just shuts up and does work.

Phoenix bounced back with a valiant effort against the Jazz.  Josh Jackson has been really good the past 10 games or so.

No, he never shuts up and talks around everything in the world minus the game in front of him.

Itís been borderline unpleasant watching him fight with that other guy

Raptors win, Celtics lose = Raptors are now two games ahead of the Celtics for #1 seed.
