Damian Lillard And CJ McCollum Had A Blast On Twitter After The Clippers Got Bounced



The Portland Trail Blazers battled admirably to get into the NBA playoffs, but ultimately were unable to topple the Los Angeles Lakers and went home after the first round. Their stay in the Bubble did include a run-in with the other Los Angeles squad that did not exactly sit well with them, and as a result, two of Portland’s stars had a whole lot of fun at the Clippers’ expense as L.A. fell in Game 7 to the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night.

Damian Lillard and a pair of Clippers players — Paul George and Patrick Beverley — had a war of words during and after a game the two teams played. Despite this, Lillard was not the first member of the Blazers to get some jokes off as the Clippers blew a 3-1 series lead to Denver. That, instead, was CJ McCollum, who started the posting with a bang.

Lillard laughed at the Cabo line, then looked back on his “bad shot” beef with George from last postseason. You see, George took a corner three down the stretch of Game 7 that looked like this…

…and unsurprisingly, Lillard got asked about it.

While this was going on, McCollum decided to get send out a whole lot of posts at the Clippers’ expense.

He did take a quick break in the middle of this to show some love to Denver’s dynamic duo of Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic, both of whom were outstanding during Game 7.

And then, CJ got back on the Clippers slandering train.

He was serious (kind of) for a moment, saying that he legitimately thought this L.A. side had what it took to win a championship.

But again, McCollum got back to cracking jokes and made it clear that he was, indeed, drinking wine before throwing some more praise Denver’s way.

Oh, look, Lillard got back into the posting game, inviting Beverley to join him down in Cancun. And you will never believe this, but McCollum got in on this fun, too.

McCollum kept going, which included some more Beverley jokes.

Eventually, McCollum wished everyone goodbye, and once that happened, Lillard came in with a few more tweets.

Throughout the evening, other players from other teams chimed in on the torrid posting by the Blazers’ duo.

I don’t know about you, but while I am super stoked to watch how the rest of the postseason plays out before four really fun basketball teams, I cannot wait for the first time the Blazers and the Clippers play one another during the 2020-21 season.

30 good Halloween movies and shows to watch on Netflix in 2020

The Halloween season is all about spooks and chills. If you are searching for a good fright, there is no streaming service with more Halloween movies and shows than Netflix.

Streaming services were created to supposedly facilitate watching TV and movies. Millions of TV and movie fans have cut ties with cable and opted to stream their entertainment. But with so many options these days, it’s difficult to know when and where to go to for the content we want.

This is particularly true during a holiday, and with Halloween right around the corner, horror fans and fans of Halloween movies and shows are likely scrambling to find good movies and TV shows to add to their Halloween binge-watches.

Many networks will be broadcasting classic movies, sure. Those Halloween movies and shows won’t air on our time, but on theirs. Netflix is the best place for a large variety of thrills. The streaming network has it all, from jump scares to truly keep-you-up-at-night features.

To help you find all the content you want this Halloween, we put together a list of the 30 best Halloween movies and shows to watch right now.

Some of the following Netflix movies and shows you may have already heard about due to how popular they became, including The Haunting of Hill House and The Babysitter movies.

Even if you’re always on top of everything Netflix has to offer, there may still be some Halloween movies and shows you have missed.

Read on and be sure to share with us if we missed any fun and spooky (or terrifying) Halloween movies and shows.

Halloween movies and shows: 30. In the Tall Grass

Netflix’s In the Tall Grass is not a movie that’s for everybody. If you feel you’re in for a wild ride that’ll take you on more twists and turns than expected, I suggest you add it to your list of Halloween movies to watch. Otherwise, I’d skip it if you’re searching for a more straight-forward feature.

In the Tall Grass is an adaptation from Stephen King and Joe Hill’s novel of the same name. The story follows a pair of siblings, Becky (Layla De Oliveira) and Cal (Avery Whitted), who stop for a quick break to stretch their legs after a long drive.

They pull up next to a large grass field and hear the cries of a young boy asking for help. Not long after Becky and Cal enter the tall grass, they learn the boy is not alone and that they may never be able to escape.

Halloween movies and shows: 29. Fractured

If hospitals already freak you out, Fractured on Netflix won’t exactly help the paranoia. The mystery-drama follows a concept you may have already read about or seen before, but that doesn’t make the mystery any less entertaining or easier to solve!

For a movie that’ll keep you guessing until the final moments, watch Fractured. The movie stars Sam Worthington as Ray, a man who drives his family to the hospital after his young daughter suffers an accident.

When his daughter goes in to be checked out along with Ray’s wife, Joanne (Lily Rabe), they never return. Ray demands answers when the hospital staff claims that he entered the facility alone. Is Ray insane or is the sketchy hospital up to something?

Demi Lovato’s Ex-Fiancé Max Ehrich Is Not Going to Let Go of Their Relationship So Easily




In the prescient words of Demi Lovato‘s colleague and friend Katy Perry, “just because it’s over doesn’t mean it’s really over”—a sentiment Lovato’s ex-fiancé Max Ehrich seems to have taken to heart.

The soap actor plead his case on social media over the weekend, asking his pop star ex to take him back, and claiming that he still hasn’t spoken with her or “officially ended” their relationship. Last week, Page Six reported that the pair were on “the brink of a breakup” mere hours before they apparently officially split according to People. The end of their relationship came after both Lovato’s bodyguard and sister unfollowed Ehrich on Instagram and fans resurfaced an old social media comment he left for Selena Gomez that said “MARRY ME NOW,” and another one to Ariana Grande calling her “my wife.” Lovato responded at the time by calling the comments “fake.”

On Sunday, Ehrich posted a series of since-deleted statements about his former fiancé on his Instagram Stories. “To this moment…we haven’t spoken over the phone…we haven’t even officially ended anything to each other, literally,” he wrote. “I’m here in real time with y’all. I love Demetria and just want her to be healthy and safe.” He also shared screenshots of her music before writing, “If you’re reading this…I love you always…unconditionally…no matter what.” He even asked for her compassion on Facebook, writing, “Forgive me and come back to me please.”

All of this comes after the actor claimed he found out about the breakup after reading about it in the media. “Imagine finding out about the status of your relationship through a tabloid,” he wrote in his Instagram Stories on Saturday morning. “While your in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a Pastor in a Christian Church whose intention of the film is to help people.” However, according to a source who spoke to People, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.” The pair started dating in March and, after a whirlwind quarantine romance, Ehrich proposed in July.

Another source confirmed to E! that “Demi did tell him beforehand,” and that Max is “just trying to stay relevant. Her family thinks he is crazy and is so relieved she has taken this step.” Another insider added, “They were arguing a lot. There has been a lot of tension and Demi left him to get a clear head. She didn’t know who Max truly was and didn’t think he had good intentions. There were many red flags she was ignoring and trying to turn a blind eye to.”

Ehrich posted another Notes app message to his Instagram Stories on Monday that seemed to once again reference his former relationship, writing, “One chapter finally closed this am. And now I turn the page. Focused on wellness, love, God, my family, friends, and my art. Good vibes only :).”

Lovato has not publicly responded to Ehrich or spoken out about her former relationship.
