Kidding, but I wish I wasn't. Here in Los Angeles there was no escaping the fact that a college football game of apocalyptic proportions involving a local team was being played last night. In case you were distracted by this event as well, here are some things that went on in the nine NBA games last night:
- Toronto won their fourth straight game by dropping 121 points on Orlando. This brings TOR's season win total to 10, and reminded me that bad teams like to run up the score whenever possible on other bad teams.
- Lebron James is good. He went for a triple double in leading the Cavs to a comeback win at Milwaukee. CLE outscored the home team by 12 in the 4th quarter to get a nice win on the road.
- Dwyane Wade also had a triple double, but it didn't matter as the NOOC Hornets blew out the Heat. Chris Paul is having a great rookie season, and the Hornets remind me of some of the Clippers teams from the past couple of years that were not that great, but often stepped up and beat the upper echelon teams at home.
- Minnesota caught a tired and disinterested Dallas team on the second night of a back-to-back, and beat them easily. Marko...Jaric....Marko....Jaric played out of his mind, and MIN was quicker to every loose ball and REALLY wanted this game, while DAL played like they didn't give a crap. KG, the overrated bitch that he is, was guarding Dirk at and beyond the 3-point line. Maybe Dirk should have gone VC against Kobe on him.
