    Toronto is really good. I like them a lot...when they're not playing Philly.

    “Respect” on what looks like a really dirty move

    GG Sixers. Your team is really good! I feel bad for Simmons though. He's gonna have nightmares of Kawhi for a long time.

    I want to see how they play Milwaukee with Giannis before I get my hopes up. We give up a lot of offensive rebounds and I can see him killing us on those. Our 3-point shooting and bench have been incredibly inconsistent as well.

    That being said.....

    Holy fuck, Kawhi Leonard! DeRozan would never.

    Wiggins was incredible tonight too! He's been legit the past couple of games. And Murray balled out.

    Good night for Canadian basketball.

    I love Pop's quote when asked about what makes LeBron difficult to guard: "Have you watched LeBron play before? He is LeBron James, that's what makes him difficult to guard."

    Tough loss by Orlando. Fournier's techs hurt, but they were also forcing shots and the free throw disparity (they only shot 8, to 32 for Denver) didn't help matters. On the plus side, the Magic shot 100% from the line.

    Don't forget that Milwaukee also hasn't played Toronto with Kawhi yet, as he also missed that game. They play in Toronto on Sunday, and then twice more in January.

    I actually saw some things I liked out of the Sixers last night. The Raptors had a really smart game plan that took Embiid and Simmons out of the game. Sticking Kawhi on Simmons dared Butler, who isn't totally comfortable yet, to take over, and he did. The Raptors are just really good and have a great identity. The Sixers are still figuring it out.

    Taking my 4-year-old son to his first Cavs game next Sunday vs. the Sixers.

    Not taking him last year - to see LeBron in person (although he probably would not remember it) may be one of my biggest parenting fails.

    Giannis is shooting just over 80% within three feet this season. That is insane.
