I know it's only Darko, but still, you really should wait until after the play to high five your teammates
Scott Carefoot posted a fantastic new stat over at The Basketball Jones: the Triple-Zero (or as he also called it on Twitter, the "Trip-Zip"). It's pretty simple: 0 points, 0 rebounds, and 0 assists, with the catch being that it must happen in a minimum of 20 minutes of playing time. This feat has occurred only 31 times since 1986, and unsurprisingly, members of the Miami Heat not named LeBron, D-Wade, or Chris Bosh are masters of this. Joel Anthony had two in the month of January alone. I'm impressed, or disgusted. Not sure which.
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
This guy beat the Cadavers. Any more questions about how bawful they are this year?
Any stray passes or loose balls would just bounce harmlessly off Justin Bieber's hair. Unfortunately.
Nationally Televised Games: Heat at Magic, TNT, 8pm: LeBron's still upset with the Magic for questioning his competitiveness after last year's playoffs. I look forward to seeing LeBron put up 38 jump shots tonight in response.
Spurs at Lakers, TNT, 10:30pm: The Rodeo Road Trip rolls on with a visit to the Staples Center. Could be an interesting game...
All The Other Games: Bucks at Warriors, 10:30pm: Pro tip: When Corey Maggette is your best healthy player, you are not likely to win many games. Milwaukee fans, you would be better off watching this movie instead, whatever it is.
Greatest action movie ever, or greatest anything ever?
