In an effort to celebrate Taylor Swift's new album The Tortured Poet's Department, Charlotte and Amin preview this weekend's slate of playoff games with a new segment called The Tortured Players Department. Together they make a case for the saddest players on each playoff team, from Rudy Gobert on the Timberwolves to Anthony Davis on the Lakers.  Charlotte and Amin then talk to Jeff Stotts about injury-plagued play-in teams before closing the show with a segment called Heat Check. In an ode to the improbable Finals run by the Miami Heat last year, they rank play-in teams on the likelihood that they will make it all the way to the championship games.  Learn more about your ad choices.
