You guys are on your own to start things tonight. I have a childbirth class that will delay me being here for the tipoff, but I hope to be home by halftime (and that there is something still worth watching) for the rest of the game. If there isn't anything worth watching I can at least come back to enjoy another round of kvetching.

Steve will have your Game Wrap tonight as well since I am an old man and can't stay up post game.
