WE GOING STREAKINNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. Wait? We have to win 3 in a row? ....................................whatever

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Ah yes, The Cleveland Cavaliers. Who could forget, two games ago, when I opined that I covered a crap team? Well, for now, they are not crap and the proletariat rejoices at their bout of goodness. Keeping with that, here is a video sure to make anyone smile. At least we know how they killed time in Mexico City.

I don't even want to continue past this point. What a glorius performance, but I will.

Oops. I was thinking about..... yeah whatever.

The Nuggets were going for a bunch of wins in a row. How many?

Boom. I sort of kind of called a little bit of my shot.

Brian Shaw coaches the Nuggets. He seems like a really good coach, and given how the Byron thing went, he might have been fun to have. Wait..... remember when everyone reported he had the job and congratulated him?

OHHHHH SNAPPPPP PARTYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.

Seriously though, it was cool. They gave it to Andy in the high post and ran a rub screen dribble hand off for Bennett. It was glorious.

Thousands of people probably. In the history of time, maybe millions? I mean, I dunno, it's pretty common.

All in all, I think we did pretty well. We talked about basketball and everyone was super nice and respectful of other people and stuff.
