"[The Nuggets] are a little more unpredictable. They have a bunch of players that can score and they can go to down the stretch. -- Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, after a 3-point loss in Denver
Is it possible that the Carmelo trade actually improved the Nuggets and hurt the Knicks? The Knicks are 7-10 since the trade, losing 7 of their last 8 and falling below the .500 mark. The Nuggets are 11-4, and currently stand 14 games over .500. Go figure.
Two triple doubles in the NBA last night. Blake Griffin got his first career TD, getting four of his ten assists in overtime (3 of them in the 2nd OT). More surprisingly, Chuck Hayes got one in Houston in a 131-point scoring explosion over (who else) the Warriors – with no overtimes required.
Stewart Cink continues as the popular holdover golfer in GuruGolf this week, on about 45% of active foursomes. So far, not so good, as he is +3 with no birdies through 14 holes.
