Welcome to another night of bawfulness in the NBA! Before we have a picture-filled look at what happened last night in The Association, Dan B. made me promise to show you video proof that Jennifer Love Hewitt bedazzles her
hoo-ha "precious lady":
Ahem, uh, without further adieu, here are some slightly less disturbing visuals for you:
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
"Gerald, man, seriously, can't you keep that damn thing in
your mouth? I mean, come on, it's got your slobber on it!"
Contrary to the empty seats seen in the background, this shot was
Here's a new entry to the pantheon of Duncan Faces. This particular
one is the "Sweet, Luke Walton is guarding me!" Duncan Face.
Nationally Televised Game:
Magic at Nuggets - If not for winning in Sactown last night, Orlando would be bringing a five game road losing streak into Denver, one of the toughest home arenas in the league. Dwight better go Superman on the Nuggets tonight or else this one could get ugly.
All the Other Games:
Wizards Generals Bullets at Hawks -
Washington's coming off a loss last night and are on the second night of a back to back against one of the league's best teams. Look for a lot of this pose
from Flip Saunders tonight.
Suns at Pacers - Kokomo's favorite team actually has a better record at home than Phoenix does on the road so this one could go either way.
Knicks at 76ers - Ladies and gentlemen, I give you your Basketbawful Game of the Night.
Celtics at Nyets - New Jersey should get some help tonight in their ongoing quest for the worst record of all time, what with Boston visiting and all.
Clippers at Hornets -
Two teams who are threatening to show us that, after their recent good play, they in fact may not
be who we thought they were. Of course, after the news that Blake Griffin is having season-ending surgery
, the Clippers prove that even if they play well, they'll always be who we thought they were.
Spurs at Thunder - This one should be a doozy, but with the ancient Spurs coming off that game against the Lakers last night (and the fact that San Antonio is still under .500 on the road), I'm taking OKC in this one. Who's with me?!
Lakers at Mavericks - Odds are good that Kobe will want to prove to the world that last night was just a fluke and that back spasms and a broken finger can't stop him from taking at least 35 shots in a game. Odds are also good we'll see a lot of smirking from Mark Cuban in this one.
Timberwolves at Rockets - If last year's playoffs were any indicator, these Rockets tend to play pretty well against the triangle offense, and that's not a good thing if you're "Clothesline" Rambis.
Heat at Warriors - Nellie's boys are at home and Dwyane Wade's got a sore wrist, so look for Jermaine "The Drain" O'Neal to try to step it up against Andris Biedrins and his spiky hair.
