Miami Heat 94, Los Angeles Lakers 88
You have to wonder if the Heat felt bad for the Lakers while Los Angeles was going scoreless the final 2:26 of the game. As we all know, the Heat have had their struggles in crunch time, plus it’s only natural to feel some sympathy for someone battling the same demons you’ve faced. Not to mention, the Heat are obviously a bunch of sensitive guys. They’ll probably send a fruit basket or something.

Dallas Mavericks 127, New York Knicks 109
The Knicks put up 113 points per 100 possessions, which is really good. Like, would be tops in the league over the course of an entire season good. However, they also gave up 132 points per 100 possessions, which is basically five quarters worth of scoring in 48 minutes. Or, in simpler terms, wowsers.

Denver Nuggets 116, Phoenix Suns 97
Pretty bad loss for the Sunsies. Not only could they have pulled to within a half-game of the Grizzlies for the last Western Conference playoff spot with Memphis due to play the Heat tomorrow, they also lost to a George Karl coached team for the first time in 13 years. Plus, it was their worst loss in three months. Otherwise, good showing.

  1. Oddly enough, I caught only the last “2:26″ of Heat game. Kobe was “Kobe Ginobili” during that period. I usually don’t see him like that.

  2. Kobe shooting after the game is gonna be a story with a lot of different positive/negative spinoffs, but these two tweets made me soooo jealous of great writers covering the NBA:

    1. Arash Markazi
    Writers are now bringing out their laptops and writing courtside while Kobe continues his one-man practice.

    2. Adrian Wojnarowski
    Arena security guy on Kobe: “I’ve been here 8 years and never seen this before.

  3. Not gonna complain about some obvious bullshit non-calls at the end of the game (even tho i just kinda did just by saying that) but what the fuck Gasol?! Chris Bosh owns you?! 5 fucking rebounds?! goddamn son i am disappoint.

  4. I love the Knicks, they combined two of the weakest defending superstars on one team, with D’antoni coach. It’s like the perfect storm of bad defense.
