    Nuggets lost to the Pistons at home. Could you imagine this place if the Blazers did that?

    They were fully healthy as well. Although this was Jokic and Murray’s first game back from covid-19.

    Kings are way ahead of us in the standings. Blazers will never be able to catch up to them

    I see a 4 game losing streak coming up for the Kings. Atlanta, Boston, Phoenix and then the mighty Pacers

    I agree with the part that some here never notice other teams or players flaws.
    The Griz and Morant do deserve some credit for fighting way back at the end of that game. The Kings got lucky they didn’t let that get away.

    If that doesn't remind you of "it's twu, it's twu", I don't know if I can stop you from getting banned in the future.

    Damn, Patrick Beverley with a pretty big cheap shot on Ayton. What a piece of garbage.

    TBF, when Andre Miller did something similar to Blake Griffin, we hailed him as a hero.

    Which makes sense. Protect your team. Laker's twitter is definitely supporting it.

    selective editing of that video

    what it didn't show is that Ayton was being a dick and deliberately went out of his way to stand over the Laker player on the floor. Ayton knew what he was doing

    Fair enough. I didn't watch the game so I'm only going off the twitter clips I could find.

    Doesn't change my opinion on Beverly though. He's still a punk.

    Did DeAndre do a hard foul? And did Andre Miller have a reputation as someone who plays a little dirty?

    I haven't seen the whole play, but at least in the above video, Ayton didn't do anything.

    Yeah there is a better video of Ayton taunting him while standing over him. On this issue Beverly might have had just cause but he should have been more measured in his response maybe?

    Look at this one. Ayton had no business walking over him like that.

    I'm not sure he's "walking over him" until after he is shoved. It's not like he made a concentrated effort to step over him. FFS, when did the league become a bunch of babies?

    Also, how was that a flag 1 on booker?

    I'd also say, while not necessarily innocent of being the aggressor, Andre actually was shoved at least twice in succession, whereas DeAndre was standing near Reeves.

    I'd like to point out that I think Booker is a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to this, since he's had his own shoving people late in the games skeletons.

    For comparisons sake, here is the Andre Miller video
