Betting on the NBA while the World Series is going on is tough but my multitasking skills came into play. I hate watching the Red Sox succeed and my co-workers having so much joy while I watch the Duke exhibition to get some enjoyment.
It was an electric baseball game and seeing the 76ers up the whole game, I didn’t think twice about flipping back to the basketball game. I soon realized the Pistons inning back so I flipped back in the 4th quarter and it was the worst decision of my life. Philly was up with 40 seconds left in the 4th and Blake Griffin decided to drop 50 last night and tie the game up. Fine, that happens all the time but lets go to OT.
JJ Redick (Shout out Duke) hits a miraculous thee point shot and the foul to bring the lead to two and covering the spread. Finally, on the right side of this one! Then this happens…
How do you not either tackle him at the rim or just let him go up untouched. Fucking 1.8 seconds left and Blake Griffin gets fouled and hits the and 1 to win the game 133-132. This is unnecessary stress to have on a Tuesday night.
