We are fresh off a busy night of hoops which saw Jim’s Hoosiers fall, LeBron and D-Wade go ham on the Kings, the Bobcats lose, and I had a dream that Flash Girl was dating Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. I will try to explain most of those things
Hoosiers Fall: Celania ran his mouth about his Hoosiers for the last two shows and his boys did a bad job of backing up his talk as they fell to Minnesota 77-73.Trevor Mbakwe had 10 points right out of the gate and Cody Zeller was never able to get on track. As Colin pointed out on the show this morning, this loss would not be as shocking if the Gophers had been playing the way they were playing 2 months ago when they started 15-1.They were 3-8 in their last 11 prior to last night.This isn’t a loss that will really hurt Indiana at all but for as good as IU is at Assembly Hall, they can be vulnerable at times away from home.At this point, why even rank a team number 1? Lets just start from 2 and go from there.
LeBron And Wade: The Kings somehow mentioned to play a tight game with the Heat last night as they fell in double overtime 141-129. The story of this game though is the ridiculous performance of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade as they combined for 79 points on 33 of 51 shooting, 23 assists, and 12 rebounds.You know you have a special stat line when I need a calculator to figure it all out. While LeBron James is having a historic season, a large reason for this recent streak is the play of Wade, who is averaging 24 a game this month.
Bobcats Lose To Clippers: For the 12th time this season the Bobcats were beaten by 20 points or more. Blake Griffin led the Clips with 24 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists.There were two bright spots for the Bobcats though. Gerald Henderson continued to play well as he dropped 24 and Blake didn’t “Mozgov” anyone.We had bets in the office that Mullins could be the victim but a quick check of the Sportscenter Top 10 leads us to believe he made it out ok.
Must See Videos: We have two videos you need to check out this morning and they couldn’t be any different.
Steph Curry tried to go after Roy Hibbert during the Pacers/Warriors game.Hibbert goes for a quick brain chop and discards Curry like yesterdays newspaper. Not shocking everyone cools down when David West looks like he is about get real on someone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFfEvsDbO40
On a more serious note, an incredible act of sportsmanship happened during a High School game. Its a must see story that brought tears to my eyes.We need more of these stories. http://www.viddler.com/v/70d1d214?secret=48017121
