I'm betting that gambling is the reason why Trump wants sports back....mafia can't make money if sports aren't played.

Maybe. I'm thinking Trump is desperate for normalcy and if sports go away that many will remember that at the beginning of November. He recently Tweeted a demand that the Big 10 to play football this year.

Biden has a pretty scorching ad about this very thing.

The bucks should let the magic win, keeps them on tv more

I never teared up watching a pregame ceremony on TV before. That one got to me.

Time to dominate, Bucks.

Yeah that was something.  Now the Bucks need to dispatch the Magic so we can get down to watching better teams

I could imagine the lakers dropping a game, westbrook being back makes okc interesting  houston may get worse with him

Indeed.

Also, so games can be in the evening. Getting a bit tired of trying to covertly watch games on my phone at work during the week....

Wow, give DJ Augustine every goddamn acting award out there.  And a red card. FFS.

Meanwhile, in the WNBA, Dallas lost both their PG and their backup PG within two minutes on drives where they rolled their ankles on opponents' feet.

17 point halftime lead.

Send 'em fishing, Bucks.

Even if it's not today, the Magic's early exit has to feel like a foregone conclusion even to them.  I hear a lot of players are pretty frustrated with bubble life.  On some level, they have to be looking forward to getting out of there.
 
2020-08-29 5:08:24 PM  
Curious if any of you are watching/have watched any baseball?  I'm watching the Indians/Cards on FOX and they're using CGI fans and it is rather hilarious.  Worth a glance.

/go Cards!

I wouldn't at all be surprised. But on the other hand...it's worked so well, it's gotta be comforting (in a way, of course) to know that staying there has kept everybody healthy. But I can't imagine being away from family and loved ones for so long.

Saw that once a few weeks ago, and it's terrifying...ly bad.

/go Brewers

Or, in Orlando's case...NOT being far away, but still not being able to see them.

Wow down to only a 3 pt lead from 21. Starters back in.

Don't do this Bucks.

You HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME!

Ok, I'm just going to float this out there.  Is it possible that the events of this week were somehow orchestrated by the Houston Rockets, in order to buy time for Westbrook to come back?  Just throwing it out there!  Just asking questions!

/steel beams don't melt!

Thought about that for a few teams, I honestly thought they should have let the bucks have their moment and forfeit
 
2020-08-29 8:19:46 PM  
That didn't look that egregious to me.
 
2020-08-29 8:50:40 PM  
I had to run out for a short while and just got back home, missed the ejections.  Trying to figure out what happened if someone would please let me know.  One of the few times when I might see Twitter as beneficial

Found it.  Described as a 'tussle', which always reminds me of:

Was really hoping Dame would be back.  The Blazers are toast

*sees highlight*

Yeah, punching someone in the dick should always be an immediate ejection and headbutting the back of someone else's head probably merits one as well.

Naido: Was really hoping Dame would be back.  The Blazers are toast


Yeah, he clearly wasn't, so it seem like none of today's games will be interesting
 
2020-08-29 9:13:52 PM  
Ohhhhh!  Worse than a tussle.

Glad they're going to go ahead and start the 2nd round while the 1st round is going on.  Gonna get Raps-Celtics and Mavs-Clippers on the same day
 
2020-08-29 9:45:11 PM  
Had no idea Lute Olson died
 
2020-08-29 9:52:11 PM  
The Lakers should probably try to not have minutes where they don't have AD or LeBron on the court (unless it's garbage time).

/if neither of them are on the court, I guess you could call it garbage time regardless of when it is in the game
 
2020-08-29 10:11:41 PM  
Got busy, missed the end of the Bucks game.

Yay Bucks!

Naido: Had no idea Lute Olson died


Me neither until the pregame ceremony.
 
2020-08-29 10:31:14 PM  
Well, the Blazers definitely are trying to make a series of this, but going into halftime tied despite shooting 67% from 3 and shooting more FTs than the Lakers in the first half seems unsustainable.
 
2020-08-29 11:18:36 PM  
So much more competitive and entertaining than I thought it would be
 
2020-08-29 11:38:58 PM  
This is amazing
 
2020-08-30 12:14:54 AM  
Oh well, should be 3 good ones tomorrow.  Wish Porzingis were 100%, I think the Mavs could win the series, maybe more.  The Lakers and Clips don't seem as inevitable as they did outside the bubble.

Agree with the announcers, I like both of the 2nd round matchups in the East.  Really looking forward to BOS-TOR tomorrow

Yeah gave Lowry a couple extra days to feel better, Miami is so deep and they can throw so many people at yonis, I really hope Dallas steals one tomorrow and it go 7, And I hope if it ends up being Houston LAThe lakers on afraid to just bully them in the post.   Houston is amazing at dictating the type of game that's played
 
2020-08-30 12:37:17 AM  
Shack said he wanted to see Anthony Davis plan the post the whole game and force them to stop him but I just don't think hes that durable
