There was this, though.

A rather cantankerous ending
By the time we got there, though, there was a curtain pulled across the hallway where I’ve never seen one, Philly reporters were being ushered around a back way to the Sixers room – we were okay getting to our usual post-game spot – but the security folks were saying there was some water leak that caused the change.
“I don’t know, I guess he think he’s somebody.”
A Lowry moment
How about this for fearlessly coming back?
It’s the third quarter, Lowry’s in among the big men trying to grab a defensive rebound when someone (it might have been Simmons) sticks a butt into him to ride him out and Lowry goes crashing to the court, a lot like that night in Brooklyn.
He lost it, of course, and ended up guarding Simmons in the restricted area. Kyle was hammering him to move him off the spot, Simmons threw a bit of an elbow trying to get better position and was Lowry had goaded, and muscled, him into an offensive foul.
That’s just hard playing, tough playing and Lowry’s level of fearlessness is at its apex.
And, who knows, maybe that’s where the jawing started that ended with the fourth quarter stuff.
Looking for some juice
It wasn’t five minutes into the third quarter when they were down 19 and he’d had enough, getting Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam and Jakob Poeltl in the game way, way earlier than usual just to get some tempo into the affair and to be able to match the Sixers athleticism.
It goes entirely to the faith he has in his backups – oft-rewarded faith, I would say – but it also goes to his willingness to try different things and see what works.
Whaddya think the chances of the 10:25 a.m. flight leaving at 10:25 a.m. considering how backed up I bet Pearson is after some snow yesterday and with snow in the forecast here for today?
Wish me luck.
I heard there’s a pucks game tonight and it’s the first one in a week or so because the Leafs have been on something called “the bye week?”
What the hell is that?
Seems to be trickeration to me. And quite silly.
But, pucks. I guess I just don’t get it.
Besides, they’ve got it easy compared to the NBA already. They started this year on Oct. 4 and even with the NBA stretching its schedule out but about two weeks, it still gives the hockey guys almost two weeks longer to play the same number of games.
(I keed. A little)
That’s how much I detest the president of the United States. The guy who runs the brewery supported him before the election and my vow to never let a very favourite beer pass over my lips again holds true to this day.
My own silent protest.
