Quote of the day
"The good thing is my first game back, I didn't have to do too much. But the bad thing is, I already had been sitting out for two weeks. I wanted to play [more], but I'll take a 36-point win any day." -- Denver forward Carmelo Anthony, after scoring 19 points in 30 minutes of action in a blowout win over Dallas
It seems as though most (maybe all) of the NBA pundits are essentially conceding the NBA Western Conference championship to the Lakers. But watch out for Denver. Although the Lakers have a slight edge in overall record, Denver has a league leading 22-9 record against teams with winning records (compared to 22-12 for the Lakers). And two of those Denver wins were against the Lakers, including one in L.A. The two teams face each other twice more in the regular season, and if the Nuggets can hold serve, it’ll give the Lakers – and everyone else - something to think about.
GuruGolf tees off for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am at 9:39am tomorrow (ET). Get your foursomes set. There is a lot of overlap in the fields between this week and last, so a lot of roster tinkering shouldn’t be required. And if you are looking ahead, be aware that next week’s GuruGolf event is the one in Mexico, and not the WGC match play event, which will take out the top 64 players in the world golf rankings.
