John Wall and Kevin Durant throw down in an epic sit-up contest
Bad news, friends. The ultimate Basketbawful dream is over: Greg Ostertag's comeback is already dead
. Excuse me, I just need a few moments alone... I think I got some dust in my eyes or something...
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
Looks like this photographer Mike D'Antoni daydreaming about Steve Nash again
If this fallaway jumper had any more "fall" and "away" in it, Rubio would land on his head 5 miles back from where he started
Nationally Televised Games:
Lakers at Heat, TNT, 8:00pm:
EDDY CURRY EDDY CURRY EDDY CURRY. Oh, and no D-Wade and LeBron was sent home from shootaround this morning with illness
and is a game-time decision. But EDDY CURRY, YOU GUYS! Also, this Brian Windhorst tweet
caught my eye: "Eddy Curry has lost around 100 lbs. Yesterday worked extra hour after practice & they literally had to mop up his sweat. Might play tonight." One hundred pounds
! Eddy lost damn near a full human being! However, wait for it... "Curry said he stills gets winded easily and won't be able to play much
." Yep, he is who we thought he is.
Mavericks at Jazz, TNT, 10:30pm:
I don't know what's going on in Utah, but the Jazz have the best record in the 2012 calendar year. They have gone 8-1 over the past two and a half weeks. Then again, have you seen their schedule? The Jazz have only three road games the entire month of January. Three! And so far this month they've gotten to play teams like the Hornets, the Bucks, the Warriors, the Cavaliers, and the Nyets, plus a Clippers squad that had just lost Chris Paul and hadn't adjusted to playing without him yet. I'm not calling it fool's gold (this does seem like a solid team, after all), but I'm just putting that caveat out there.
All The Other Games:
Hornets at Rockets, 8:00pm:
Hornets guard Jarrett Jack recently said "We've just got to make better basketball plays." Well, that might help you win basketball games more than making better football plays or baseball plays I suppose. Good thinking, Jarrett Jack.
