If you missed it, Marcus Lee got an invite to the NBA Draft CombineThe big news yesterday was word that Jamal Murray, Skal Labissiere, Tyler Ulis AND Marcus Lee made the official list for the NBA Draft Combine. Murray, Ulis, and Skal were locks, of course, but Lee getting an invite was a surprise, since he wasn't considered one of the top alternates; however, it's clear Lee wants to go to the league, so this is huge news for him. On the flip side, Isaiah Briscoe did not make the list for the Combine, although he's currently working out for teams. Yesterday, it was the Spurs: https://www.instagram.com/p/BFCrkeAww6c/

How about those Preds?I'll admit that I'm dragging a little bit this morning. After becoming a hockey day three days ago, I stayed up to watch the Predators take on the San Jose Sharks, an insane game that went to three overtimes. I fell asleep sometime after midnight in the middle of the second overtime, but waking up to find out the Preds pulled off the 4-3 win is one of the best feelings ever. I'm a newbie to all this, but playoff hockey is absolutely batshit crazy. Last night's game was the longest in Predators' history, and bless Mike Fisher for putting an end to it:
