That's one way to win the 4 spot, I guess.

Welp, Warriors-Cavs 3.0 it is then. That injury was so gross I had the unfortunate luck of accidentally seeing it on Twitter. Really sucks for Celtics, I wanted them to beat the Cavs so bad this year.

It was really bad. I thought he just landed on his back after getting upended on an alley oop and I was worried about his tailbone. Hayward just sat there for a second until the camera zoomed in and Kevin Harlan noticed it and started going crazy. I saw one closeup of it and just changed the channel immediately.

David Chao on Twitter said that it's not a career ender and there's a chance he could be back for the playoffs. Really?

They're saying broken ankle. Doesn't sound as bad as described, and maybe a blessing that its an ankle and not a leg?

The playoffs are like 7 months away so I guess it’s conceivable if it’s “just” a broken ankle

Just the bench reaction. This does NOT show the injury or Heyward. That’s enough for me. No need to see it.

It can't be worse than the Louisville broken leg in the NCAA Tourney, right?

I'm not watching either again to make that determination, but this one has more force coming down because he got taken out on an alley oop. The Louisville broken leg went through the skin, but tonight Hayward's ankle was just literally hanging off to the side. Both were just horrible. Who took Hayward out accidentally?

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.
