Good to see Al out there with the 2nd unit.

We look so much fresher having two days off.

It makes you wonder how much of our recent slump can be attributed to that jam-packed Schedule.

Was our schedule so jam-packed to accommodate the trip to London?

I believe so.

Perhaps, but the Sixers, whom we’re playing, has played 4 fewer games this year, which is the middle of the pack.  In fact, the London game will be their 39th of the season, and we’re already at 40.
2018 Mock Trade Deadline:

Pelicans: Davis, Holiday, Vucevic, Rondo, Clarkson, Nance, Hart, Moore, Ilyasova, Ajinca, Hill, Miller, Jackson, Dotson, Dakari Johnson

Warriors:  KD, Steph, Klay, Draymomd, Iggy, Zaza, Young, Livingston, McGee, West, McCaw, Jones, Casspi, Jones, Looney

Google for picks.

Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.

Ugh.  3 turnovers in a row.  Sloppy as hell.

It happens when Marcus and Kyrie are out. :(

The Nets are 14 for 22 after starting 2 for 10.  We gotta do a much better job defensively.

LeBron would never get called for any of that.

Lol Kyrie is not thrilled with this officiating.
Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.

But that is because philly has played a ton of road games and the NBA has made a point of extending rest around away games.

Also, I remember reading that The Celtics requested extended rest around the London game while Philly did not.
