Indiana Pacers 111, Philadelphia 76ers 103
Fun game. I especially enjoyed how it seemed like — throughout the whole game — one of the Sixers was just about ready to punch Jeff Foster in the face. Looking at him, that’s not much of a surprise.
Washington Wizards 136, Sacramento Kings 133 OT
This game was so horribly, terribly, incredibly bad that I’m going to record the replay today, just so I can marvel in the completely ludicrous things that happened last night. I mean, the Wizards blew a 20-point first quarter lead, a six-point lead with 14 seconds left in the fourth quarter and almost blew a 5-point lead with 30 seconds left in overtime before Beno Udrih tried to throw a pass through three guys. That kind of hilariously bad night.
Denver Nuggets 132, Phoenix Suns 98
A 34-point loss is bad no matter how you slice it. But when you consider that the Suns had a 12-point lead after the first quarter, you realize just how atrocious they played in the final 36 minutes of this game. Almost Cleveland bad.
New York Knicks 100, Portland Trail Blazers 86
Five players in double figures for New York, 14 assists for Ray Felton and a road win against a Western Conference playoff team, all without Danilo Gallinari. Not bad, Knickertons. Not bad at all.
