Back to Back “prove it” games for the Bulls v. Nets and Bulls and they get undressed. They’ve had a great season so far, but of all the teams with good records, they’re the biggest pretenders of the bunch.

They struggle defensively, if they can't draw a team into a shoot out they are in bad shape. They're a year or two away (or a couple solid defenders). Levine being out would be a serious blow, he's a lousy defender but he can light it up in a shoot out.

On a Suns note, we are 15-5 against winning teams this year, by several games the best margin in the NBA.

Mavericks are signing Marquese Chris to a 2-year contract.

I've always liked WCS. We don't have a need though with Ayton, McGee, and Biyombo now at C. I'm a little surprised the Mavericks prefer Chriss over him but Jason Kidd is their coach and I can see him thinking Chriss' athleticism is more valuable.

I'm sure some team will pick him up. He must not have had any trade value.

WCS still needs to sharpen that basketball IQ. I view him as McGee and will probably get better as he matures in the league. He also needs someone to feed him, hard to do with Luka dominating the ball.

Durant went down with a knee injury tonight. Bent backward on a collision. Kinda reminded me of Giannis’ bend in the playoffs last year. Looked bad but might be nothing serious.

Kevin Durant's injury is reported as a left knee sprain but he will get an MRI.

Man, I hope not! I think Philly would be unbeatable between LeBron and Embiid.
I think you are right. However the Lakers were not unbeatable even with a healthy AD and LeBron. The rest of the Philly cast is probably better though.
