    Oh I know that isn't true. I just find that all of life is better when you try to realistically manage expectations. Those hoping for wire-to-wire leads or lopsided scores early that are maintained are swimming upstream when it comes to actual data.

    You shouldn't lose a 28 point lead.

    Against a team that Tommy said "hadn't even had a chance to exchange phone numbers yet."

    The data says it happens way more often than you would think.

    We're at the "Clippers throw anything up to the rim and it goes in" portion of the game.

    The difference in contact allowed is staggering. Doc is owning Brad. Worked the refs early

    In the NBA, the rule of verticality gets the same traction that the NFL gives the ideal gas law.

    That may be so, but they've come back from 20 plus down twice on this trip so they've got some confidence knowing they can come back. In the 2nd half, they've simply played harder than the Celtics and it shows.

    Is hope there’s something in the Green New Deal about putting an end to these giant tire fires.

    I would also add that when your team loses its leading scorer, you don't just lose buckets but it has a knock-on effect on rotations and how actions are run. As everyone knows, Kyrie can do things nobody else on the team, and the overall floor, can do.

    To be clear, I wasn’t being critical. I just expect a certain cadence in these game threads and it was off until you returned.

    And he has subbed players. How has that worked out? It's a collective effort of suck in this half.

    Kyrie is gonna play like 50 games a year until he retires, and that’s assuming no more major injuries. He’s on the 38 year old Tim Duncan schedule.

    Smart has had back to back terrible games. It’s no coincidence that that’s also led to back to back eggs by the team too.

    He's been bad, so has everyone else. Not really seeing anyone specific getting pointed out in this one. It's a team effort tonight.

    Damn, I was happy when the Sixers got rid of Shamet. Didn't think he'd come back to bite us again. I was wrong.
