The Process just got more complicated.  According to Zach Lowe, 76ers center Joel Embiid could return in 2-4 weeks after surgery to repair an orbital bone fracture.
So raise your glass if you are wrong
In all the right ways
All my underdogs
We will never be never be, anything but loud
And nitty gritty, dirty little freaks
So raise your glass if you are wrong
In all the right ways,
All my underdogs
We will never be never be, anything but loud

The Timberwolves are headed to the playoffs for the first time since 2004. To put into context, Ronald Reagan died a few days after the T-wolves last played a playoff game. Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) was born a couple months before the T-wolves lost to the Lakers in the Conference Finals.
Welcome to my breakdown.
I hope I didn't scare you.
That's just the way we are when we come down.
We sweat and laugh and scream here.
'Cause life is just a dream here.
You know inside you feel right at home, here.
Yeah, Welcome to my nightmare yeah, hey, hey, hey...

Here's something I wasn't expecting to say.  LeBron James and the Cavaliers are down 17 points to start the second half of Game 1 against the Central rival Pacers.  Updates to come.

UPDATE:  Things got a lot closer very quickly.  James and the Cavaliers rallied in the third quarter and trail the Pacers, 73-65, entering the fourth quarter.

UPDATE 2:  So much for the rally.  The Pacers defeated the Cavaliers, 95-80, in Game 1, snapping James' 21-game win streak in first-round games.
