Quote of the day
"I wanted the ball. I made the shot." -- Denver forward Carmelo Anthony, after a game-winning jump shot with one second remaining in overtime in Cleveland
Don’t overlook Denver! They are now 2-0 vs. the Lakers, and 2-0 vs. Cleveland.
No high-buyer-syndrome in TSN hoops last night. The two leading price gainers were LeBron (103 TSNP) and Rajon Rondo (52 TSNP). LeBron’s triple-double was no cheapie either, with 43 points, 15 assists, and 13 rebounds to go with 2 steals and 4 blocks. The last NBA player to put up numbers better than 43-15-13 was Oscar Robertson in 1962 – the year he averaged a triple double. Coincidentally, “the Big O” was at last night’s game, honored in pre-game ceremonies along with Jerry West, LeBron and Carmelo as co-captains of U.S. Olympic gold medal basketball teams.
