Ballin: Paul Pierce went for 24, 10 and six. Blake Griffin went for 20, nine and eight. Cool.
Not so much: Things looked pretty good for the Magic when they were scoring more points in the first half than they did in their last game with the Celtics. But then they played the second half and proceeded to blow their 21-point halftime lead in about 15 minutes of game time. Plus, they only scored eight points in the fourth quarter. Nice work, gentlemen.
That’s far: Rudy Gay has crazy range (“crange”).
It’s no Lorenzo Brown, but still pretty far.
Bad stats: The Magic went a combined 2-17 in the fourth quarter last night, meaning they would have actually been better having Dwight Howard shoot free throws to try to score points.
Those unis: How about that Tams vs. Stars game last night? So good.
I like ‘em both. The Clippers just look good from head to toe, with the shorts being particularly great. The Grizzlies just look hilarious, like an eighth grade team where you wear the same shorts to every game but change jerseys depending on if you’re home or away. Nice to see them commit to the look. If only they’d worn the authentic warmups like back in the day.
Damning evidence: The Clippers sure do fall a lot.
I’m not sure all of these are “flops,” as the video purports. But it is pretty funny to see these guys falling any time they get touched. So soccer-y.
Other things: Kenneth Faried’s is better, but Blake Griffin had a great non-block last night … Just look at Stephen Jackson’s Twitter avatar … Oh hi, Vlade Divac … Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely with a broken ankle, which is really bad news for JD’s fantasy team … Kevin Durant has a terrifying jump shot
