Not so much: Conversely, from the third quarter on, only Dwyane Wade (11), LeBron James (9) and Chris Bosh (4) scored for the Heat.
Last one: And here’s the play that literally made me yell out “GHEA! GHEA! GHEA!” like I’m Young Jeezy.
For some reason, it seemed a lot louder last night. Feel like Marv Albert kind of undersold things on the call, which is kind of weird coming from him. Great shot though.
Full spectrum: In another game that happened in the same NBA, the Charlotte Bobcats lost their 14th straight game, which is amazingly not even their longest losing streak of the season. Cool league.
Flop city: You know a flop is bad when the player you flop on laughs at you.
Good one, Chris.
Throwback: Tim Duncan went for 28 points and 12 rebounds last night, numbers he hasn’t posted since December 15, 2009. It appears that limiting his minutes may be having a positive effect.
Oopsy-daisy: Pretty chill alley-oopski going on right here.
That’s Rodrigue Beaubois’ 10th dunk of the season, which is about eight more than I would have guessed.
Frowny: Last night’s loss to the Clippers officially eliminated the Timberwolves from the playoffs. It was fun while it lasted and it’s very cool that they played well enough to make the pick they have to send to the Hornets way worse than anyone anticipated. Spiting David Stern is always a win in my book.
Other things: This is the face you make when you are a bench player and get a standing ovation … The Maloofs are terrible. Get these guys out of here … LaMarcus Aldridge is having hip surgery and is done for the year, because the Trail Blazers haven’t had any bad news for a while … Corey Maggette is also done for the season, which will completely submarine the Bobcats’ championship aspirations … Now Dwight Howard is trying to say he didn’t ask for Stan Van Gundy to be fired
