Quote of the day
"Inside our locker room, we stick together, we're like brothers. We win together, we lose together. Outside, the Miami Heat are exactly what everyone wanted, losing games. The world is better now since the Heat is losing." -- Heat guard Dwyane Wade, after an 87-86 home loss to Chicago
The Lakers may be getting their act together. After heading into the All Star break with three straight losses (including one in Cleveland), they’re now 7-0 after the break, including yesterday’s 16-point win in San Antonio.
The Miami Heat? Not so much. They haven’t beaten a team with a winning record in more than a month, and yesterday’s loss was their fourth straight, and fifth in the last six. It doesn’t get easier, as their next two games are against Portland and the Lakers, and they don’t face a sub-.500 team until March 23 at Detroit.
Nice weekend for Andre Iguodala - back-to-back triple doubles!
The Honda Classic continued to produce high scores all weekend. Even through tournament winner Rory Sabbatini was nine strokes under par, only 12 other golfers scored in red figures. The top bestball score for GuruGolf, shared by two teams, was only -39. Last year, the corresponding top score was -44. Worstball honors went to Dusty with a +60, four strokes higher than last year’s worst.
