Before the last two games (where DAL and HOU put their center on Giddey), the starting lineup had a +7.0 net rating. After the DAL and HOU games (only 19 additional minutes played together), the starter’s net rating is down to +3.1. https://www.rawchili.com/3200245/
Isaiah Joe currently leads the league in +/- for bench players. The difference between him and #2 is bigger than the difference between #2 and #26. https://www.rawchili.com/3199069/
Could someone merge this Shai drive into the NBA logo, kind of like the one with Kobe? It would be amazing. https://www.rawchili.com/3196779/
New month, new pod! Clemente and Hunter discuss the past two games against the Timberwolves and Lakers, plus more. https://www.rawchili.com/3193413/
[Stiles] Thunder vs Mavericks injury report. Kyrie Irving is questionable. Luka Doncic is not listed on the injury report which means he is active. https://www.rawchili.com/3193109/
Did you know that *lightning strikes* go on vacation on the #weekend?
Obviously, I'm joking, but from the graph it would seem so.
This 2018 data collected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (#NOAA) shows that Saturday and Sunday distributions are both lower than the rest of the week.
SPOILER: We don't know...BUT ⏬️
Oh my Lorde, the chaos.
We've got a storm passing through at the moment, and I was out when it hit.. so I got home to a dog that's panicky and attaching herself to my leg for comfort.
While dealing with her I was trying to get the cats inside (Lilith is still outside because she's obviously holed up somewhere warm and dry and is too clever to leave where she is.
I then had to run out in the hail because the ghosts on the front lawn had become untethered and I don't want them blowing into traffic and causing an accident.
I came back inside to try and get the ghosts past a clingy dog who is scared of them but more scared of the lightening and thunder, and a cat who is vomiting hairballs in the hallway.
We're having rolling power outages, it's still hailing, the side yard is flooding (it happens when it rains), and I've just noticed that the lid to the bin is open from when I was cleaning the guinea pigs this morning, so that's going to be filled with water.
Chaos. Absolute chaos.
My opinion (and not those of my nonprofit employers) -please vote NO in December.
We have too many unmet human needs in this city for us to consider giving so much money away to a private interest, even a beloved NBA team.

I was witness to this - the night sky suddenly lit up, and then, moments later, the loudest explosion I've heard in years roared above.
Woke the cat up too!
🧵 2/ In the metric system, you divide by 3, for miles by 5, and you have the distance. https://www.bergfreunde.de/entfernung-gewitter-rechner/
The children's story should be the other way around: Hitting cones is the #lightning, the laughter is the #thunder. The mathematical formula comes from the speed of sound; thunder is the sound from lightning.
For years, the formula doesn't work any more. In so many regions #thunderstorms have changed. Too many flashes of lightning to count! We use lightning apps ...#ClimateDiary
🧵 1/ #Myths and #stories transported knowledge or subjective, cultural or religious perceptions over generations. Against #thunderstorm fears, we children were told that the gods were bowling in the sky, having a hell of a lot of fun. When they laughed, there was lightning. And one could count from #lightning to #thunder to determine the distance of the thunderstorm. Apart from the gods, that's correct: you count the seconds from lightning to thunder. https://www.weather.gov/safety/lightning-science-thunder #CulturalHeritage
