Ballin: Carlos Boozer earned his hair paint last night, that’s for sure. After posting 29 points, 18 rebounds, three assists and 146 random screams in a win over the Nets, he can paint his head whatever color he wants, as far as I’m concerned.
Not so much: Here is C.J. Watson’s line from last night, expressed with just numbers: 1-1-1-1-1-1. According to Basketball-Reference, it’s just the third time since the 85-86 season that a player has posted an exact 6×1.
Sloater: I promise we’ll talk about another game eventually, but let’s enjoy Nate Robinson’s game-winning floater in slooooooooowwwwwwww mooooooootioooooooon.
Same shot he hit against the Heat, so I guess this is the Bulls’ go-to game-winning shot? Weird, but certainly better than running a play for a 20-foot jumper from Brook Lopez, which is what the Nets did on the game’s last possession.
Uh-oh: If you feel like having your morning ruined, why not peep Danilo Gallinari destroying his knee in last night’s win against the Mavericks? If that’s not horrible enough for you, check out the Nuggets source who described the injury by saying “the ligament was loose.” Not good to watch and even worse timing.
Squiguadala: Andre Iguodala can be your go-to guy sometimes, if you let him.
Probably the best time for Andre Iguodala to be your go-to crunchy time scorer is when he gets Vince Carter on a switch. (P.S. Corey Brewer needs to stay on top of his head shaving game, because that might be the worst hairline in the league when it “grows” out.)
Dunzo: Gregg Popovich-Craig Sager interviews have jumped the shark. Don’t tell me otherwise.
Period: It might have only pushed the lead to 11 points, but this is when last night’s Thunder-Spurs game felt over.
Kevin Durant looks SO tall when he dunks coming down the lane. Not fair.
Other things: Sarcastically great pass from Kirk Hinrich, honestly great reverse layup from Jimmy Butler … Gary Payton has been elected to the Hall of Fame. Wonder if he’ll ever say anything about it? … If you’ve ever wanted to see Rick Fox and Shaquille O’Neal do improv scenes with the cast of a show called “Men at Work,” your dreams have been answered … Have a seat, Chris Kaman … A Tyus Edney Kings jersey has been spotted in the wild
