It would be great to play the Celtics again. Tatum was fun to watch. Great game.

Clips lost again last night. I'm thinking they don't go far. --Yohe

Expected win. The only thing that kept it a game was that Kuzma+Rondo pair was terrible, seeming to be on the court for much of the two big runs that the Pelis had.

I think a #1 vs #8 series between the two would go much of the same way, if not easier. Vogel would know what match ups worked, and avoid the ones that didn't.

Vogel has to get Kuzma away from Rondo.

Moving him to wing is the move, but it has to be with anyone other than Rondo playing point.

Caruso is killing it. They should be giving him all the time he wants. They had to play Rondo against Boston, but enough is enough. Seems like they're looking to replace Kuzma.

James & Davis want Pope in the game.

I think a game or two off, would be good for Davis. He seems really beat up. His legs are a mess. I'm against resting guys for no reason, but this seems like a good idea. --- Yohe

Lebron is getting the game against the Warriors off. Davis is probable.

Green had a good game, which is a positive. Bradley didn't, but he's had enough good ones recently where you feel he'll be okay over the course of a series if he stays healthy.

Morris didn't put up any numbers, but the team was okay when he was on the floor.

I wish our option were to not have Rondo on the floor at all.

Kuz is a mess. The defense is still terrible. He's shooting just .284 from 3P since coming back from the injury in late December... and it's just .222 in Feb. Good lord. Kuzma has pretty much just one thing of value at this point: a cheap $3,562,178 contract for next season. But that's a bit of a negative - he's a Restricted Free Agent after next season. So if you're a team trading for him hoping he will get back up to the 19-6-3 that he put up last season, you're then going to be faced with resigning him to a much pricier contract. Who wants to give up much of value for for that? He really needs to get his shit together. :/

So is the coronavirus going to stop the playoff from even happening? That is something to think about. ---Yohe

It's hard to explain Kuzma's performance this year & It seems like he'll be getting less time from now on. Maybe he doesn't want to be there. Kind of unforgiveable in a year that means so much.--Yohe

The NBA playoffs could take place in a empty arena, with just TV cameras watching?--Yohe

Troy Daniels getting waived. Freeing up an open roster spot for someone to get signed.

they're talking to dion waiters about the final roster spot. I still would hope for a Make em Dance Lance signing. He's been playing in China, but with the corona virus causing all sorts of chaos, he's hoping for a stateside comeback.

Seems doubtful though.

Apparently JR Smith might have a meeting with the Lakers this week.

They really could do better.

Dion is a former Pelinka client and is now with Klutch. LeBron does have some bad history with him, but guessing this was decided a minute ago.

Odd split.

Compromised Philly, Freak and Clips this week. Letís see.
