The NBA Morning After: Glass Half Empty Edition

The Morning After is a look at the night that was in the NBA along with other NBA-related fodder.

— Things got out of hand rather quickly in Indiana as the Pacers dropped an asteroid on the Raptors, 124-100. There should be a way to work an “extinction of the dinosaurs” comment into every Raptor loss.

— NBA to New Orleans: “All your Hornets are belong to us.”

base

— “It was a bad basketball game and we just played worse than they did,” Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy said of his team’s 80-74 home loss to the Atlanta Hawks. Now, an optimist would have said something like, “it was a good basketball game and we just played a little less good than they did.” If this game proved anything, it’s that optimism is for the birds, er, Hawks maybe? Sorry.

— The Milwaukee Bucks continue to have the offensive flow of a sink after Joaquin Phoenix shaves his beard in it. The Heat won their fifth straight behind Dwyane Wade’s 25 points and bushel of offensive rebounds. LeBron made some reference to the Packers and Brett Favre. Does that make J.J. Hickson Cleveland’s Aaron Rodgers?

beard

— The New York Knickerbockers have also won five games in a row, defeating the Minnesota Timberwolves, who have won five games, 121-114.

— The Bulls got a big night from kinda-new-guy Carlos Boozer (29 points, 12 boards) and aside from the Durant/Westbrook tandem, Oklahoma City got a big night from Nenad Krstic (18 points, 6 rebounds), which clearly isn’t a part of the winning formula. Chicago won, 99-90.

— It is a fact of life that jazz music, the really smooth stuff, can put a grizzly bear to sleep in about 48 minutes. This remained true in Utah, as the Grizzlies went down 94-85.

— Eric Gordon continued with his role as the quiet scoring machine (29 points on 17 shots) and Blake Griffin did Blake Griffin-y things (highlights are a must at this point) as the Clips beat the Kings, 98-91.
