Alas I will miss the Raps this afternoon.. but Army is doing a half day on Friday so I'll get to watch that one and the clincher on Sunday.

sno man: Go 'underdog' disrespected reigning champion Raptors!!


The ESPN fishbowl inhabitants commentators seem to be warming up to them. Defense wins championships and their defense is right at or better than last year.

If nothing else, Jacque Vaughn has improved the quality of job offers that he's going to receive after the season.  But for my money, if he's thinking of staying, he shouldn't.  I suspect that job, when KD and Kyrie come back, isn't going to be enjoyable and probably needs a Ty Lue.  Someone who's real responsibility is not pissing off his stars.  Imho

I'm just glad the Raps are back for the free Mc Fries.

Grant Williams draining an "I dare you" three.  Nice.

I'm very much enjoying the bubble.  We've had almost entirely close games and, on top of that, the series' feel less predictable.  None of that "the series doesn't start until someone loses at home."

I do feel bad for the teams that worked their butts off in the regular season, and get zero reward for it.  But as a fan, this is a lot of fun.

I can't imagine how oddsmakers are setting lines.  They must be very nervous

Mavs have lost 11 games this season in which they were *leading* in the last minute, a record.  Mind boggling and borderline unbelievable

It seems a bit unfair, that they can't feed off the home energy.  More precise and clinical with the better team winning.  The officiating seems greatly less homertastic, more fair, and this is something I've often complained about... yet I still miss the energy of the crowd.
