To Durant’s credit, he still has averaged 27.4 points on 51.4 percent shooting this season. That is in line with his career averages through the end of his 12th NBA seasons. Durant’s frustration, though, traces back to the Warriors’ inconsistency with both their results.

It’s just that everything is on camera and lipread even when it’s the wrong interpretation.”.
So, she flies to Baltimore to help out however she can, That’s a delightfully zany premise, and Tyler quickly sketches out Willa’s new “family” with an eccentric ecosystem of relatives and toe warmer ballet slippers - adult sizes neighbors, including her ersatz daughter-in-law who shows no reluctance to presume on Willa’s generosity, Most charming of all is Cheryl, the hilariously precocious 9-year-old who wears majorette boots and announces, “I’m more a preteen than a child, Come January I’ll have two digits, Plus also, I’m not dependent.” Cheryl may not be a blood relation to Willa, but she clearly shares those Anne Tyler genes: She owns “a dedicated Tupperware cookie bin,” and she wants to start a pet library when she grows up..
