It's another night of BAD. Sorry, but I'm still sick and miserable, so let's just keep things moving. I haven't even gotten to play NBA 2K10 the past couple nights. (Gasp!)Worst of the Night in PicturesHey, Jordan Farmar, that trick only works if she's wearing a skirt.Considering how bad his team stinks, I can't blame John Kuester for holding his breath"So France is that way? Really?"(Tick, tock, tick tock...)
Believe it or not, The Notorious VDN won a game minutes before thisLacktion Report:
As always, Chris is on top of the bottom of the Assocation.
Thunder-Generals: Dominic McGuire returned to form with a foul and brick in 3:06 for a +2 suck differential.Nationally Televised Games:Celtics at Suns:
Crabs-Hawks: Joe Smith had a not-so-mighty 2:0 Voskuhl in 5:52 by negating an assist with two bricks, one giveaway, and a foul.
Hornets-Rockets: Marcus Thornton sharply missed one field goal to give the buzzers a +1 in 8:47.
Warriors-Lakers: Phil Jackson must've been pretty confident that Golen State's non-defensive play would show up in a timely fashion, as he brought out Josh Powell in the middle of the game (with the Lakers still having to fight their way back) for a 3.7 trillion (3:43) take that would prove celebratory!
Okay, we finally get a "nationally televised game" that I really, really want to see... and it's on NBATV instead of ESPN? What? ESPN would rather show the "Pacific Life Holiday Bowl" instead?! Fuck you, college bowl season. That is all.
Okay, that's not all. I just read this article
about the injuries the Celtics are dealing with right now, and I'm even less happy. Sigh.All The Other Games:Hawks at Crabs:
We just witnessed the Hawks getting beaten down at home by the Crabs last night... and now they get to do it all over again on the road? Cruel scheduling, Mr. Stern.Grizzlies at Pacers:
Z-Bo continues to go insane on the stat sheets, but good God the Grizzlies look ugly
on the road. Not only are they 4-11 away from home, but they're giving up 109.5 points per game away from Memphis. Are they exhausted from staying four-people-to-a-room at a Motel 6 whenever they're on the road or something?Bucks at Magic:
According to the Stats LLC preview, "The Magic are 20-4 when Howard attempts at least seven shots and 19-3 when he scores 13 or more." Hmm. Maybe taking a couple fewer bad threes per game and moving it inside more would be a nice start. Oh, and maybe if Superman had more than one post move in his arsenal. That too.Bobcats at Raptors:
You know that variant on the traditional facepalm where you rub the bridge of your nose between your forefinger and thumb while sighing? Take one good guess at what I did when I read this matchup.Knicks at Nyets:
Okay, you know what? I have nothing to add here other than sharing a link to ESPN's Worst Teams Tracker
.Heat at Hornets:
I'm completely confused by this year's version of the New Orleans Hornets. They're dreadfully
bad on the road, and almost unstoppable at home. There is no excuse in going 2-13 on the road when you're 11-3 at home, guys.Jazz at Timberwolves:
Speaking of teams I can't figure out... how in the hell has Utah managed to drop both its games against the Timberpups so far this year? That's just embarrassing. But, good news everyone! The T-Wolves are on the second night of a back to back!Clippers at
Mike Dunleavy on Chris Kaman: "[He] is an assist waiting to happen." And yet he isn't even leading the team in assists this season. I guess he's still waiting?76ers at Kings:
I'm not going to pretend I expected Tyreke Evans to be a ridiculous beast of a man in the NBA. All I can do is enjoy the ride and be amazed that our own Sac-town resident Chris actually has decent team to watch for the first time in ages.
