Celtics Hottie Ray Allen had a career-high 35 points in the Celtics win over the Portland Trailblazers. They really needed to find a morale booster after back-to-back losses. I mean, they went from having 4 losses to 6 losses in the span of two games. That’s rough. But they kept their wits about them and beat the Trailblazers, those plucky Celtics. Allen went on a tear after halftime; 26 of his 35 points came in the second half when he went 9-of-13 from the floor. Also, he is not to be confused (as I sometimes do) with Allen Ray of the eye-poking out incident.
Not-at-all-hot OJ Simpson got a stern talking-to from angry Clark County Judge Jackie Glass and then got his bail doubled, to $250,000. She told him, “I don’t know if it’s just arrogance. I don’t know if it’s ignorance. But you’ve been locked up at the Clark County Detention Center since Friday because of arrogance or ignorance — or both.” Snerk. Ass.
Speaking of someone people have strong opinions about, the Red Raiders upset the Aggies in college basketball, giving Bobby Knight his 900th career coaching win. Say what you will about Coach Knight, that’s a lot of wins. Also, it gives me an excuse to embed this in my post:
This one’s for J-money’s mom: Tarheel Hottie Tyler Hansbrough had a game-saving block to seal the win for #1-ranked North Carolina. They came dangerously close to being upset by the pesky Yellow Jackets from Georgia Tech, but managed to pull it out, 83-82.
I’ll confess, I find him dorkily cute.
