Game Four

One of the sweetest things about sports is the clichés. Halftime at the Verizon Center everyone was milling around muttering to their friends about how the Wizards had no intensity and Gilbert needed to step up. Then we were talking to total strangers about how the Wizards needed to play with more intensity and moaning that Gilbert wasn't stepping up. Then play resumed, the Wizards had more intensity, and in the third quarter, Gilbert stepped up, and the Wiz won! Sweet. Also -- crucial famous-for-DC sightings of William Cohen, Tim Russert, and Ron Brownstein.

No mention of Matalin % Carville? On TV, they looked like they were sitting right next to Russert.

Anyway, those are some sweet celebrity sightings. At Nets games, all we get are the likes of Jay Z, Beyonce, Ethan Hawke, Gisele Bundschen, and Matt Damon. We know what sightings are preferred by political junkies!

I'd just like to pop in and say that the Kings are bending the Spurs over ... and not using lube.

Bonzi Wells steps out with five minutes in the 4th, 25pts and 17 rebounds. Contract year, I know ... but he really seems to be fitting into Sacramento. Must be the Adelman thing - headcases just stop acting up when they hit Sacramento (Webber, Artest, Wells).

I feel ashamed that I stopped watching the wiz game at the half. It just seemed like a blow out in the making. Didn't come back until halfway through the fourth quarter.

First AI, now Gilbert. I need to stop developing man crushes on undersized unconscionable gunners. It's too emotionaly draining.

Funniest thing of the night: Kenny, Barkly, et al talking about Reggie Evans grabbing Kaman's nuts during the Clipers/Nuggets game. They're like falling over laughing!

I walked away from TV during the Lakers/Suns game with the Suns up by 5 and 12 seconds left in regulation. Said to myself: game's over. Argh. Did come back to see Kobe's jumper to win the game in OT, though.

The one at the end of regulation was like found money. Crazy stuff.

Well, we're getting set up for two kickass series next round in the West.

On one hand we'll have the battle of the titans, and on the other hand, we'll have the battle of L.A.

San Antonio ought to be annoyed at giving Dallas a week to wait for them. Watch out for Dallas stealing game 1.

"Also -- crucial famous-for-DC sightings of William Cohen, Tim Russert, and Ron Brownstein."

My favorite moment of the game was when Brownstein knocked down that crucial 3 over Donyell Marshall's outstretched fingertips.

He may bury the lede at times, but Ron-Ron sure can shoot the 3.

"San Antonio ought to be annoyed at giving Dallas a week to wait for them."

What odds can I get on Sacramento taking the series? Let me say I am not impressed with SA. Memphis is a much better team than Sacramento, on a winning streak going into the playoffs, and Dallas is just humiliating them. SA is playing like a team pissed it didn't get a bye.

"What odds can I get on Sacramento taking the series?"

6 to 1 at Tradesports. Oddly enough, bob, that's the exact same odds you can get that there will be a US air strike on Iran this calendar year.

Both are lousy bets.

But you should be happy to be a Dallas fan at the moment. Blue skies are opening in front of the Mavs.

What kind of psychotic madman would schedule 4 NBA playoff games in one night?
