The I’m on my 4th hour with Time Warner edition.

Some weirdness last night in the NBA. The Celtics lost to the Hawks with Joe Johnson dropping 30; Memphis almost lost to Charlotte, which is the same as losing to them (this Bobcats franchise is more disorganized than an MJ NCAA prop bet in late March). Cleveland handled the Knicks as Stoudemire returned to the lineup. When are Knicks fans going to get some extended happiness? The Lakers—WITH KOBE—got blown out by San Antonio. Aside from that, it was business as usual as we look towards the final 5 days of the regular season. OKC handled Sacramento, and Dallas is rounding into form (just in time) beating Golden State with a late run at home.

Scores from last night:

The playoffs are only 8 days away edition.

The Pacers locked up home-court in the 1st round and all-but-eliminated the Bucks from a spot with their victory; Minnesota (a team with a bright future behind Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio, both out with injuries) defeated the Pistons (a team—possibly on the rise—with Rodney Stuckey and Greg Monroe) in Detroit; Ben Gordon scored 27 points and the New Orleans Hornets defeated a visiting Rockets team in a fight for their lives for a spot out west; Miami beat Chicago without Derrick Rose (this should probably be included in every loss Chicago suffers without their pg) and things got chippy in anticipation of their possible match-up in this year’s Eastern Conference Finals (witness the bandage over Luol Deng’s eye); Jared Dudley scored 18 points for Phoenix and they kept their playoff hopes alive by defeating the Clippers. 

Home teams in CAPS.

The I’ll have more to add edition. Indiana got their 6th straight win against the Philadelphia who is only a game and a half up on Milwaukee for that final spot in the East; Detroit beat Cleveland so bad I saw a score update from the second quarter and it looked like one of those early college football games where Florida State plays some bumble-fuck I-AA team; Memphis and their Z-Bo off the bench experiment continues to pay dividends as they defeated the still fiesty ‘Wolves; Um, WOW in New York (I have much more to add, but WOW again); San Antonio destroyed the Lakers at the Staples as celebrities looked on (it mirrored the LAL-SAS game earlier this week except the roles were reversed).
