So in other non-basketball news, at least the Red Sox dug themselves out of the 11-20 hole they found themselves in around early May and are now 35-31. They are currently still out of the wild card picture but only barely. Only about 3 games separate the group of Toronto, Tampa, Boston and Cleveland and those 4 teams will battle for 3 wild card spots.
I personally think Cleveland could slip later in the summer anyways so as long as Boston keeps it up, we should see some October baseball here again (or on the road, depending where they finish seedings-wise and in terms of WC number).
But I'm just happy we have meaningful baseball this summer. It would suck if the Sox were still very bad and this summer was basically a wash.
