This Blazers – Detroit game is so uninteresting. – 11:51 PM

For the 3rd straight game, the Raptors fail to break 100 points. They’ve lost 10 of their last 13 games and fall to 2-8 in Toronto, tying them with Detroit for the 2nd-worst home record in the NBA (only the 1-8 Magic are worse). The reigning champion Bucks come to town Thursday. – 9:54 PM

This Nuggets’ roster — without MPJ and with a ramping up Jamal Murray — is a 𝙬𝙖𝙮 better one than what Denver beat Portland with in 6 games. It’s one of the reasons why it’s hard to see Denver punting on this season.
Another key reason: Nikola Jokic
