How often do your teams go 5-for-5 on any given day of the year? Well, all the right teams won yesterday in the NBA, most notably the Cavs in L.A. Few things are more satisfying than seeing disgruntled Lakers fans throw their foam #1 hands onto the court in disgust. Or Derek Fisher show his true thug colors. Or Lamar Odom get ejected. Or Kobe Bryant miss 21 shots.
Merry Christmas, indeed.
Does the NBA really need a “Percy Jackson Ability Tracker,” though?
Meanwhile, Brandon Roy dropped 41 on the Nuggets as the crippled and cursed Blazers pulled to within a game of Denver in the Northwest. Utah remains 3½ games out. December NBA wrap to follow within the next week.
