Pacers are the 3rd team to have won multiple games they trailed by 20+ points, joining the Sixers & Suns.
Bulls are the 3rd team to have lost multiple games they led by 20+ points, joining the Kings & Rockets. – 9:33 PM

Will have more on this tomorrow but these are the pockets of the game where the Suns have to use Bridges’ newfound confidence/flow. CP3 should still run most of the offense but when he gets his rest that’s when Bridges can get back on the ball (with Booker too when he’s back). – 9:29 PM

The Wizards have won fewer than 50 games in each of their last 43 seasons (soon to be 44), the longest such streak in NBA history:
43 — Wizards (1980-2022)
42 — Clippers (1971-2012)
36 — Kings (1965-2000)
The second-longest such active streak is 23 seasons by the Hornets. – 3:34 PM

Caught up with last night’s Jazz-Hornets game, pretty unremarkable. Thought Mark looked great in the first half, needs to rebound defensively though. Plumlee is playing with such confidence, opposing teams are struggling to keep him out the paint. Best post injury DSJ game too – 8:48 AM

2. No threes.
