76ers with 72 points at the half. Simmons already with 11 assists.

Bazz yet to enter the game for the Bucks...

Giannis led them back like a monster.

Milwaukee sure could use a good Center. I don't know why they didn't keep Monroe.

Can they extend Randle and sign George and Cousins?


No. Randle would eat too much into the cap.

Do they have cap room to extend Randle and sign George or Cousins and then make a play for Giannis in 2019?


Only if he comes for the MLE...

Randle and George and let everyone develop.



Need more than that, like perhaps a guard. I'm less sold on this whole max cap signings, partly because they are often on the decline.

Anthony Davis though would be cool.

2 minutes into the 2nd and Jaylen Brown only has 2 fewer points than the entire Bulls team...

One thing is for sure.

You don't even talk to Isaiah Thomas' agent. That ballhog needs to be gone.

Plus he should have only been at the ft line about half of what he got. Refs fall for his flopping.

After this year he will have to accept a modest contract (10M) if he wants to be on a winning team and be a 3rd or 4th option(6th man). Or he can go to a poor team where he can dominate the ball and lead them to mediocrity.

Stevens was a miracle worker.

In his defense (Thomas) I don't think he's close to 100% physically, and maybe even mentally.

He's always going to be a huge liability on defense, but he's such a dynamic offensive player, that I do think he could be a significant piece as a sixth man on a good team.

Adrian Wojnarowski@wojespn
Portland is signing center Georgios Papagiannis to a 10-day contract, league sources tell ESPN.

Adrian Wojnarowski@wojespn
Papagiannis was the No. 13 overall pick to Sacramento in the 2016 NBA Draft. Kings waived him at the trade deadline.

It's actually 41 now. Rocks and Pels each won again.

Also, Thunder, Clips and Nugs are all 6-4 in their last 10 and Utah is 8-2. The only 2 teams in the mix with losing records in their past 10 are the Wolves and Spurs

Boston did well trading him.

Great opportunity for Brewer to play for a team that could go a long way.

Mental health in the NBA is having its moment.

The Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan, Cavaliers’ Kevin Love and Wizards’ Kelly Oubre have all spoken out about their struggles, and all three have been widely praised and supported.

That wasn’t the case a half decade ago with Royce White.

The Rockets drafted White No. 16 in 2012, knowing he had an anxiety disorder. Despite advocating for protocols to handle his issues, White and Houston never got on the same page. He said the NBA preferred the easier route of not having to deal with him. He quickly fell out of the league, though he had a short stint with the Kings in 2014.

Wow.

Brandon Jennings is killing it in his first game back in the NBA. 11 points (3/5), 6 rebounds, 9 assists in 13 first half minutes.

I thought he was having a flashback to when he scored 55 for them his rookie season.

They have a multitude of health issues right now. No Curry, Thompson or Green tonight vs. Lakers.

I can't even watch when Ball shoots three's. 4 for his last 29. And that doesn't stop him from jacking up 7 a game.

He's just shameless.

And that 47% from the FT line doesn't give me much hope things will turn around.

It's really too bad. His defense has been much better than expected.

He needs to devote the entire off season to trying to fix that shot.
