Ballin: 35, 12 and 10 for Carmelo Anthony, just his second career triple-double. Great line, but it’s made better because it led to “You Dropped a Bomb On Me” getting a shout out in the AP recap of the game. Any time your performance leads to one of history’s greatest power jams getting mentioned, you had a good night.
Not so much: All of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Every single one of them. For this.
Actual third quarter boxscore: This is the reason they are the worst of the night.
Pointless record watch: The Knicks broke the all-time record for three-pointers made in a second quarter since the 1986-87 season. If you’re wondering why that record is even kept, then we are in the same boat.
Lights on: Maybe now Paul George will understand why dunks look better when everyone can see them.
I’d like to think that this dunk — which didn’t even count — was Paul George’s mea culpa, a way of showing people what he did at the dunk contest when no one could see. It’s hard to be certain, since one of the dunks was almost impossible to see, but I think this is actually the exact same dunk he did while covered in glowing tape. Would have been great, had we been able to see it.
April showers: The Timberwolves must really hate April. According to the AP, after last night’s loss to the Grizzlies, the T-Wolves are 1-26 in their last 27 April home games, dating to 2006. Yikes.
Tony Toni Tone: Tony Parker hates Laker point guards, apparently.
You’re next, Andrew Goudelock.
FYI: Amar’e Stoudemire has braids now.
Other things: Kevin Seraphin went to the zoo, in case you were wondering … All of those guys from University of Kentucky declared for the draft, no doy … Nike is launching a new RSVP service for their most in-demand shoes, which hopefully means people won’t be shot anymore … Shaquille O’Neal thinks Charles Barkley is a girl for wanting three seconds called … Stephen Curry is done for the season because of his ankle, and Chris Kaman is done for the season because of a bruised tibia. Oh, also because of draft picks … These two GIFs will really make you love the Dallas Mavericks
