What Had Happened Was: 11/30/16

Oh, you don’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

The shorthanded Duke Blue Devils were able to defeat the Michigan State Spartans, 78-69, at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Tuesday night. It was a close game for most of the evening, but plays like the one below in the second half allowed Duke to pull away and extend its streak.

Which streak you say? Well, pick one.

Or this one:

Duke is a dangerous team, and the Blue Devils are going to be even more dangerous when they get their injured players back. Scary.

BLESSINGS

Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith is a national treasure. Don’t forget it. You don’t believe me? Check this out.

Then after the game.

Let’s cherish Smith for as long as we can.
