WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE to see today’s piping-hot, fresh-outta-the-oven episode of THE RUSH with Jared Quay! We’ll let you know everything you didn’t know you needed to know about sports. Other stuff too. But mostly sports.

It’s Wednesday, December 23, 2020, and here’s what Jared’s cooking up:

  • The Los Angeles Lakers fell to the Los Angeles Clippers 116-109 after receiving their championship rings in a pre-game ceremony.

  • Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving teamed up to score 48 points in 50 minutes as the Brooklyn Nets blew out the Golden State Warriors 125-99.

  • James Harden and the Houston Rockets moved closer to a divorce after a heated exchange at practice nearly led to a physical altercation.

  • Thanks to their owner and quarterback, the Washington Football Team had an extraordinarily bad day, even by their meager standards.

  • PLUS: James Harden finally passes, Ben Simmons shouldn’t get comfortable, and Dan Snyder may need to rebrand as Washington Football Team Owner.

THE RUSH will be back tomorrow! Until then, stay safe and don’t forget to check out our previous episodes here.
