NBA Breakfast Special: Bradley Beal Eats All the Voodoo Donuts

The Washington Wizards recovered nicely from the pure embarrassment of getting smacked by the Utah Jazz on Monday, and on a SEGABABA in Portland, Bradley Beal went for 51 points, nearly half the output of the 106-92 win over the Trail Blazers. Also, I don’t want to hear a word out of you Oregonians, because there is no UGH in donut. Even if it says so on the sign. You can put golden arches on a Jack in the Box, it’s still a Jack in the Box, and you can put three unnecessary letters in donut, it’s still dunkable for …

Is This 2018 NBA Team Any Good?: Toronto Raptors

by Fox Doucette The Toronto Raptors are the last remaining holdout for the idea that old-school basketball can actually win games, and they went 51-31 despite ranking 22nd in the NBA in three-point attempts in 2017. While the Rockets and Warriors were breaking basketball with triples aplenty, the Raptors’ efficient inside-out game managed to rank sixth in offensive rating even as they were 24th in pace. Casey says he wants to modernize the offense a little this year, shoot more threes, look more like a pace-and-space team, but with the Mid Ranger playing shooting guard, will it be hi ho …
