Not much time to work with today, folks. Sorry about that, but it means this post needs more filler than Taco Bell's ground beef. After finishing up here, I recommend reading this post at The Basketball Jones to see how your knowledge stacks up against NBA bloggers. (For the record, I would have done terrible if I had been involved in this quiz, except I would have totally nailed the Kosta Koufos part of one of the questions.)
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
Nationally Televised Games:
Magic at Heat, TNT, 8pm: The Heat are only 13-14 against teams that are .500 or better. The last time team they beat with a winning record? The Magic. (You may remember that as LeBron's 51 point game.) And now both teams are hitting tough stretches of their schedules, playing against likely playoff teams. So I'm looking forward to a high-intensity game tonight that will feel a bit like a playoff game. Looking forward to that exciting play, and an even-more-animated-than-usual Stan Van Gundy.
Nuggets at Jazz, TNT, 10:30pm: TNT exec: "Quick! Destroy all those 'Deron vs. Carmelo' promos!"
