8 straight losses but now 3 out of past 4 have been wins. 8th seed and an annihilation from the Lakers in the playoffs is still a chance lol.

Ayton hasn't played much this season after the suspension and injuries, but it seems like 15/10 is his normal day out. Pretty good numbers, but any chance those 15 points can become 20+ soon? I know not everyone can come in and be Doncic, but that would be really nice.

Someone also needs to explain the Trevor Ariza for Oubre Jr trade to me. That seems like one of the most lopsided trades in recent memory.

It was actually Ariza for Oubre and Austin Rivers whom we waived.

Wasn't it because they had both Oubre and Otto Porter at the 3? But then they got rid of Porter as well (maybe that was after Wall's injury?), so maybe not...

Yeah, that's how I remembered it. They chose Otto Porter over Oubre and Oubre wanted to go to a team where he had a bigger role or something.

Well Oubre was coming out of contract so they had a decision to make and chose accordingly. Ariza was only on a one year deal. You’re all correct though, one of the rare recent trades where we absolutely smashed it. Trading up to get Mikal Bridges also appears another.

26-21 today in 35 minutes! Monster numbers albeit against the Knicks.

Hopefully we can see him putting up these numbers consistently within a year or two
