Today brings the sad news that Blake Griffin has fractured his kneecap and will miss at least 6 weeks. This obviously will greatly affect the poor Clippers’ chance of making the playoffs. And even more obviously, saves me from making my bet on the Clippers win total. My heart bleeds for Ralph Lawlor, Bill Simmons, and Clippers fans everywhere.
On the other hand, this is a positive development for the Warriors, and my wallet. It makes that eighth seed a little easier to get to. And it makes the Warriors Bet a little easier to win.
And one other thing: We now have the leading candidate for Rookie of the Year.
