Quote of the day
"[Tracy McGrady] played exceptionally well. When you're born a scorer, you're always a scorer. No matter what may happen to athleticism or anything like that, he's a natural born scorer and we saw that tonight." -- LeBron James, after McGrady scored 16 for Atlanta to win in Miami
Bowl games dominated the sports landscape yesterday, although that seemed a bit odd – as I know a number of people who had to work yesterday – myself included (assuming you call this “work”.)
Meanwhile, the NBA threw it up for 10 games themselves. Miami snatched its first defeat from the jaws of victory, blowing a small lead as Atlanta romped to a 15-3 spurt to open the 4th quarter. In another game of note, Dallas got a much-needed quality win, handing the Thunder their first loss of the season.
I’m still struggling to get all of my usual hoops stats organized and produced. Some redesign of the underlying systems is warranted, so much of the immediate work isn’t going to be visible right away, but I hope to have everything ship-shape within the next week.
