Wyws_-_favors_meh

  • MIL @ MIA -- Milwaukee lost
  • CHA @ PHI -- Philly lost (duh)
  • DET @ IND -- Detroit lost
  • NOP @ DEN -- New Orleans lost, and it shows that we're probably going to beat them when we play later on this week
  • CHI @ ATL -- Atlanta lost
  • BKN @ NYK -- Battle of New York, and Brooklyn lost. Amazing.

Movers and Shakers:

  1. Golden State finally lost, and all the teams playing that could benefit didn't win.
