Deep breath.

Last night is over. History. It happened, it can never be undone, but it's over. Today is a new day, tonight is a new game, in a different city, against a different team. Is it a better team than last night? Yes. While the Sixers have been playing like hot garbage of late, they're still a dangerous team that has had the Cavaliers number all season. That said, Kyrie Irving is back, so he should at least keep it close.

Regardless, I'm still a bit exhausted from last night's game. I've taken some precautions to avoid a repeat of the emotional breakdown that occurred 24 short hours ago. I've taken a nice, long, leisurely walk around the block, enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. I'm nursing a cup of peppermint tea to soothe my torn-up throat. There's a hot, fresh Hawaiian pizza with jalapeños (TREAT YO SELF) on it's way to my apartment as I type. Regardless of how bad tonight's game is, my apartment is a happy place.

The theme of tonight is Zen. Calm. I'm like a stone, nothing can break me. Not veteran leadership, not Omri Casspi going 0-10, nothing. I will remain calm. As such, to aid in that goal, I will reflect all my thoughts on this game in haiku form.

Never read an angry haiku, right?

First Quarter

Decent basketball?

Kyrie Irving has returned,

Bench still terrible.

***

Philly is hurting.

Tumbling down the East standings.

Time to fear the deer?

Second Quarter

My pizza arrives.

Walk away for just a bit.

Only down by five.

***

Philly looks real bad.

Barely beating the Cavs.

Time to blow it up?

Third Quarter

Philly pulls away.

Cavs bench really cannot score.

Zen, Angelo. Calm.

***

Things are looking grim.

Who can save the day for us?

Unleash the Gody!

Fourth Quarter

Welp, that didn't work.

Gody was not the answer.

The streak continues.

***

Five games left this year.

Will our heroes win again?

Bring on Carmelo.
