CJ McCollum just said that he is so into being a new father that he enjoys waking up to feed the baby even when it means not sleeping much, and changing diapers. The latter involves the thrill of investigating the color of little Jacobi’s poo. lol – 10:21 PM

Talk about walkovers — the Orlando Magic have the NBA’s worst record for a reason. No wonder the fans were introduced to the players prior to the game rather than the other way around. @Portland Trail Blazers should be able to name their score in this one. Portland 54-40 at half.
