lol, did you click the buzzfeed link?
Of course I did.
i was asking the person who said they should photoshop an oscar in his hand, schmuck.
Guess I should have!
Quite the forgettable night for the Lakers, not so much for Washington: outscored the purple & gold 31-17 in the 3rd quarter that jump started their comeback, John Wall played out of his mind (24 points, 16 assists), and former Laker Trevor Ariza was spectacular (25 points, hit 7 3-pointers). Ahhhh, the memories of Ariza:
One of the better role players the Lakers have had in the 2000's.
Don't suppose you saw this after the game:
So, Marc Gasol is out indefinitely, after re-aggravating his abdominal injury. That is a serious blow to the Grizzlies. I highly doubt they'll be able to get to the 4-seed, and first-round home field advantage, without him.
The Cavs are 3-3 in games this season when they have at least a 20-point lead. The rest of the league is 332-11
ESPN is reporting that Wade's out against the Bobcats.
I did... D'Antoni was right.
Though the final score on Monday night was 109-103 in favor of Golden State, the game really wasn't that close, as the Lakers were down around 15-20 points for so much of the game... the Warriors were getting basically any shot they wanted, as the Lakers defense was as effective in this game as having a lit match to keep warm in a cold swimming pool. Also, there's this: http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/story/_/id/9104960/metta-world-peace-surgery-torn-meniscus . And Dallas/Utah are both only a game behind the Lakers now for that 8th seed. Nervous time!
Waiting for the Spurs and Nuggets game to start.
I'll just leave this here for Tunick:
Thank you, Chiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicago! w00t! I'm probably a bit more excited about this than I should be (I did jump up & down after the final buzzer sounded), but **** it. That 33 game streak is one of the proudest moments in one of the greatest seasons the Lakers have ever had, and though Miami did give it a great try (the most serious scare in my life/since 1972), it's rewarding beyond belief to see their streak end.
And every Laker, Chicago, and Cleveland fan celebrate.
Thank you Chicago.
I do feel just a little bad for the six actual Heat fans in the world. Well, not really ... I just like pointing out that there are only like six actual Heat fans in the world.
I can't wait until my brother gets home from work tonight...
The fact the win was without our two best players makes it even more sweeter
lol @ Miami
You can view some pictures from last night's Spurs versus Nuggets game here:
Will post video later on today.
In all the excitement of the Heat's streak ending last night, I almost forgot about how the Laker game ended:
Now, should it matter that there was no call here? As I see it, no, because of Minnesota's Hack-a-Dwight strategy: Howard was fouled 4 times, 4!, between the 2:56-2:03 mark of the 4th quarter (Dwight made 1 of the free throw's twice, and missed both free throws twice). That's ridiculous... I don't care if it's "sound strategy", the Hack-a- fouling is always ruins the flow of a game, and reeks of desperation. Thus, give me a violin to play for Rubio & the rest of the Timberwolves.
maybe get a center who can make a ****ing free throw. it's that or sit him down like the clippers have to do with jordan at the end of games. but no, you're right, the refs should totally stop calling the game just because your coach is too helpless to counter the other team's strategy.
Dwight's shooting 49% at the line this season, so even if he were to work on that during the off season, I don't see a dramatic increase to the point where team's will not use the Hack-a strategy. I doubt it, but the NBA should look at the rule (something beyond not being able to use it within the final 2 minutes of regulation). As for the refs, at least the NBA is semi-consistent in not calling plays at the end of a game, though I'd imagine that too could change sometime in the future.
