The Orlando Magic:
|What beast have the Magic unleashed?|
Yeah, they didn't even play last Thursday, but they are still finding ways to wreak havoc on the league through how bad they are. The Brooklyn Knight had been crumpled in a ditch for days, then the Magic played the Nets twice in a row, and they restored him with their sorcery of sucking. Usually, the mad magicians only use their "make a rival team better" spell on the Lakers.
The Boston Celtics:
Jason Terry was feeling a little better, 10 points and 6 assists, so we can assume he did get that thoughtful fruit basket the Utah Jazz were planning to send him. However, it was not enough to
overcome the loss of Rondo (
ankle) and knock a newly empowered Knight from its galloping steed.
The reanimated corpse of Jerry Stackhouse was spotted again in the borough of Brooklyn. He evidently disrupted a Nets game for over 20 minutes, shooting the basketball several times in the process, before he was scared away by the terrible sound of Avery Johnson's voice.
Josh Childress: You can read about the game he had in the lacktion section; this entry is to announce the sad news that Josh "Geoffrey" Childress was let go from his job with Toys "R" Us. The firing was relayed to Josh with a phone call that awoke him from a deep sleep around 3am, Friday morning. Apparently, the board of directors had become aware that Childress plays basketball professionally. They met together to view the game at a local gentleman's club and were not pleased with what they saw—at least not from Josh.
|Where the hell am I gonna do my Christmas shopping?|
The Spurs: The aged Texans missed their chance to stop the mighty, indestructible juggernaut that
was is the New York Knicks. As I write this, on Monday the 19th, I can think of no reason to suggest ominously that this might be the end of the line for the Knicks' winning streak...
The Nuggets: The Nuggets lost despite Dwyane Wade, something or other, sitting out.
Ty Lawson: He may have missed all seven of his shots, but Ty did show what a good teammate he is by helping Faried notch 11 offensive rebounds.
Nets-Celtics: Josh "Geoffrey" Childress looked lost, nibbling at the tall trees and recording no statistics for a long-necked 8 trillion. Jared Sullinger lingered on the court long enough for a +3 suck differential.
