The Hornets defeated the Grizzlies by a whopping 61 points tonight. Kemba Walker lit it up with a franchise-record ten made three-pointers.

The Sixers lately have been putting teams away like they are on the way to a championship.
And Simmons is completely unfazed by the NBA grind, averaging 9.8apg 8.1rpg and .579fg since the all-star break....

Very strange situation.
I never would have expected Philly to finish ahead of Cleveland, and Philly even managed to win in Cleveland.
I think if Cleveland continue to only win games by scoring big, and with no sign of defense, I like Philly's chances in a playoff series.

I think unless the Cavs pick up their D significantly, they may not get out of the first round - no matter who they play.

Knee surgery for Irving.

Doesn't say how long out.

Not good.

Celtics prepping for 2019? Rozier, Tatum and Brown are all legit so this wasn’t a wasted season. If they get everyone healthy for a playoff run they could make the finals...especially if the Cavs are out of the picture.

If Irving is out for the season, Boston will not defeat the Cavs. Only team that can stop Cleveland in that case would be the Raptors.

Developing the young guys definitely prevented this year from being wasted. Question is, can Irving return in time for the playoffs?

Another big blow to the Celtics, but they should shut Irving down for the season...don't rush him back like the Cavs did in 2015. Hopefully all the stars will align with Kyrie and Heyward back and they will dominate in 2018-19.
