Bawful After Dark: January 26, 2011

Cavaliers Celtics Basketball
"I'm back!"
"So what?"
"So what? So let's dance!"

Short on time today, folks. Let's get right to it... as soon as I link you to this great post from Kelly Dwyer examining the state of technical fouls. (Hint: it's FUBAR, as shocking as that must be...)

Worst of the Night in Pictures:

Nuggets Wizards Basketball
"For my next trick, I shall make Nick Young levitate!"

This is the visual equivalent of the Sad Trombone

Cavaliers Celtics Basketball
"And here's the play at home plate!"

Nationally Televised Games:
Spurs at Jazz, ESPN, 9:30pm: So the Jazz get to finally come home after a depressing five game losing streak on their latest road trip... and they're immediately greeted by the juggernaut San Antonio Spurs. That's a slap in the face to say the least.

All The Other Games:
Magic at Pacers, 7pm: Paging Roy Hibbert's scoring touch... Paging Roy Hibbert's scoring touch...

Grizzlies at Nyets, 7pm: Anyone else almost feel sorry for the Care Bears? They're stuck in that "good enough to be kinda sorta competitive" but "sucky enough to never have a shot at a playoff run" zone where you can't stock up on draft picks, and you can't succeed. Plus they're stuck in Memphis, which doesn't help a lot either.

76ers at Craptors, 7pm: Those poor extinct lizards are riding an eight game losing streak. The really surprising thing is that they haven't seen a losing streak this bad since 2006. It sure doesn't feel like that should be the case, does it?

Nuggets at Pistons, 7:30pm: Sobering stat of the day: Denver hasn't won at Detroit since March 10, 1995. Nineteen ninety five. Unreal.

Hawks at Bucks, 8pm: If Atlanta can win tonight, it would be their longest road winning streak since December 1993. NINETEEN NINETY THREE. What the hell is up with all these 1990s dates showing up? I feel like I need to go read this blog for awhile.

Thunder at Timberwolves, 8pm: What's that, OKC? You're struggling with your shooting lately? Well then, come on up to Minnesota and play against our "defense!" We'll get you right back on track!

Clippers at Rockets, 8:30pm: Speaking of pathetic defense, has Houston officially decided "screw it, we're not even going to try on the defensive end for the rest of the season?" In other news, NOOOO! Don't get hurt yet, Blake Griffin!!!

Bobcraps at Suns, 9pm: At least one thing is certain about this game: there is no way in hell Kwame Brown can take over the game again like he did against the Purple Paupers. That's, like, a rule or something.

Hornets at Warriors, 10:30pm: I haven't seen these two teams play each other yet this season. Anyone wanna explain to me why the hell the Hornets have let the Warriors beat them in 4th quarter rallies in consecutive games?
