Come on, T-Wolves. You got dominated by this guy? Really??

Fake Twitter accounts can be hit or miss, but I hold high hopes for the new Fake Tom Thibodeau account based on this gem: "Caught behind the K Love Dbl Dbl hoopla, yesterday Eddy Curry broke his own record. Two Dbl cheese burgers a day for 1648 consecutive days."

Worst of the Night in Pictures:

5-time NASCAR champ Jimmie Johnson is all about winning. Why the hell was he at a Clippers/Bobcraps game???

Sad trombone? Yeah, sad trombone.


Nationally Televised Games:
Frail Blazers at Heat, NBA TV, 7:30pm: Yeah, we already used this earlier today in the WOTN. But damnit, it's worth seeing again, so here it is: the 2011 Miami Heat Clutch Reel.



All The Other Games:
Lakers at Hawks, 7pm: Here's a fantastic post from Kid Canada: Ron Artest ups his game to out-crazy Charlie Sheen. We can only hope.

Warriors at Cadavers, 7pm: Wow, this is a depressing game. I wish we could go back in time to when the Warriors actually mattered... What's this? Saturn's ice-covered moon Enceladus generates 15.8 gigawatts of heat power?. Great scott! It could go to 1955 and back six times if it rotated at 88mph! BRB, go watch the Warriors win the NBA championship.

76ers at Pacers, 7pm: The Sixers are 8-2 over their last 10 games. Are we really sure this is the same team that started the season losing game after game? Or did they get replaced by pod people who can actually ball?

Bucks at Wizards Generals, 7pm: Jeez. I swear, these Bucks games are unwatchable. You'd be better off watching this dude play Enter Sandman on a ukulele.

Rockets at Suns, 9pm: It's the Aaron Brooks/Goran Dragic post-trade showdown we've all been waiting for!!

Dan B. -- I want you to know that the Cardinal picture was my original first choice for today's WotN post. The those two Blake Griffin pics. Then the Paul Silas pic. But each time, I was like, "No, no, Dan's gonna wanna use those."

Blogger Basketbawful said...
I wonder, has anybody noticed that I'm pretending Vince Carter isn't on the Suns? And that I avoid pretty much any mention of him anymore?

@Basketbawful:

Vince WHO?

After the fail in Orlando I'm pretending V.C. isn't on this planet so I get where you're coming from.

Thanks much for the great "Janitor" pic too! Something about that guy making other players and or teams look stupid just warms the heart.

Now that you mention it...it has been kind of strange not reading about the silly shenanigans Vag Carter commits. It felt like something was missing and now I know what it is.

Also...why isn't Vince Carter on your Basketbawful banner?

Blogger Josh said...
@ Basketbawful

Who...?

Blogger Dan B. said...
Basketbawful -- That's awesome. Even better, that Joakim Noah pic was one of my original selections too.

Now that you mention it, I think I have only made fun of Vince Who? like twice in the past month. It makes me happier when I forget he's breathing the same air as Steve Nash.

Blogger BadDave said...
Well, picking on Vince is like hijacking the short bus for $8.62 in lunch money. Sure, you're eight bucks ahead but you got to keep your pride.

Blogger Josh said...
Another Miami loss? I wonder how many they'll lose in a row.

Not one. Not two. Not three. Not four. Not five...

As a long time Raptors fan I have witnessed this occurrence:

Whenever a Gerald Wallace team faces a Chris Bosh team, Chris Bosh's team always falls behind.

Anonymous Shrugz said...
Bosh with a single single!!!
welcome to the suck!

I reallly wanted Raptors to draft Aldridge too :-(

Everyone wants to focus on the Heats scoring and how no one outside the big two contributed. But they didn't need scoring. They shot over 50% and Wade was unstoppable at the end. The only difference was rebounding. The Blazers killed them on the offensive glass. When I look at Bosh's single single, the 7 points doesn't stand out to me, it's the 4 rebounds that is bothersome.

Anonymous nightdreamer said...
Also I find it funny that Gerald Wallace's best game as a Blazer is against Heat.

Probably easy to guess why, though I haven't seen the game live so I can't say for sure if he's being guarded by Bosh.

Can Miami lose 30 games??? It looks more and more probable every single day. Awesome vid btw!

Dear Bawful, sorry but no mention of this great Phil Jackson quote on the "Crygate"?

"This is the NBA: No Boys Allowed. Big boys don't cry. But, if you're going to do it, do it in the toilet where no one can see."

More awesomeness from P-Jax.

AND...

Epic tweet:

http://twitter.com/#!/nastynate184/status/45330602089652225

@WFNYCraig: The Miami Heat were 31-9 (77.5%) before LeBron's Karma tweet. 12-12 since and cried after a loss. Down to 67.2%.

:D

Lakers-Heat has "marijuana game" written all over it.

(I figure I'm stat cursing one of the teams...)

Brad "cornrows" Miller just screwed the Rockets over, for the love of everything mention him tomorrow.

Also Dwade and James were 2 of the "Top 3 Performers" for tonight after a butt whopping by Portland, doesn't that just perfectly sum up their season?

Blogger LotharBot said...
"single single"? No, Bosh had a triple-single. 7 points, 4 rebounds, 1 steal.

Latrell Sprewell had the same stat line (including 2 pf, 2 to, 0 ast, 0 blk) back on opening night of 1995 against Houston, though he shot even worse (3-15 instead of 3-11.) Several other guys have had 7-4-1 nights, but Spree's is the closest match in basketball-reference's database.

The end of the game, that is.

Anonymous Patrick said...
It's very strange to see Wade and James putting up good numbers (I didn't watch the game at all) and *still* losing.

That said, I kind of feel sorry for the Heat. They do get flayed without mercy for every mistake, made in games that - let's face it - won't amount to much as the playoffs come around. I'm not hyping the Heat's playoff chances, I'm just saying everyone here knows that the regular season doesn't amount to much.

"It is common sense, we can talk about it, but I think it's evident," Bosh said. "I just have to get it where I'm effective. I'm a big man. I can shoot the ball but I'm a big man. So I have to get it where big guys get it. Then I feel I can start helping out this team more."

A big man... needs to get it where big guys get it....

The +/- in the Blazers/Heat game was interesting:

Bosh -15
Wade -12

Nobody else on the Heat worse than -6

Blogger Factfinder said...
“How do we explain it? We can’t,” James said. “This isn’t rock bottom for us. Crazy thing is, we could lose every game and still make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.”


So, I guess Lebron's new strategy is to "secure" the 8th seed and knock Boston out in the first round? :-)

@ AnacondaHL thanks for the Brad Miller footagee! I am so happy that worthless bastard isn't with the Bulls anymore.

With such fail abound lately, I do have good news to bring, for Kings fans at least. The Maloofs have resigned their ownership into more capable hands. Hands that can build dams. Dams that can withstand the strongest torrent.. or hydro pump in most cases.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is to my great enjoyment that I introduce to you...

The Bidoofs.

Lots of powerless forward action in this Heat-Portland game. Both Bosh and Aldridge finished with only 4 boards. Even worse for Bosh since he played a lot of C with LeBron at the 4.

Pacer's dead coach bounce can now be shortened to dead.

"I have given everything I could to basketball and now I’d like to spend more time with my family,” Ilgauskas told alietuvis.com after the Heat lost to the Chicago Bulls, led by the super-athletic point guard Derrick Rose. "


Iglauskas comments.

Now

The most interesting in that statement is that for a few months now i sense a push for Derick Rose to the media, i don't know why. I mean he's a great player, he had lots of fame before but know its more obvious in your face style, just like this out of place comment in someone's article "led by the super-athletic point guard Derrick Rose".

It's crazy but i can't stand it anymore.

Oh, I remember those good ol'days in which the Heat were a sure lock for 70 wins... and loosing 2 in a row was as impossible as gravity stopping and everyone start flying...
The Heat had 2 clutch stars... one of the best big men in the league... a variety of role players, include an impressive 2nd line of F/Cs, in Anthony, Ilgauskas, Magloire and Howard...
I'm remembering those wise words from ESPN and afiliates, while beatles "yesterday" passes un my mind...
