Way to choke Denver

I had to leave the office early which is why my post yesterday ended abruptly to head to Staples Center again this time for the Clippers-Nuggets game. The Nuggets started out on fire, especially Marcus Camby who did not miss from the field in the first half. The Clippers didn't start that terribly either but by half the Nuggets had a 77-57 lead. That is not a typo, the Nuggets had 77 points on 81.6% shooting in the first half. No one on the Nuggets was less than 50% from the field.

But all that changed in the 2nd half as the Nuggets went cold and the Clippers came back with a fury cutting the lead to 3 near the end of the 3rd. Corey Maggette didn't play as much as I'm used to seeing him, granted I haven't watched a Clippers game not involving the Lakers in months, maybe they're still easing him in after the injury. It was an exciting finish with the Clippers taking the lead and then Carmelo Anthony got pissed after he got fouled and chucked the ball into the stands to get ejected. Then in the stupid move of the night IMO, George Karl replaced him with Reggie Evans when he knew that the substitute would be shooting FT's. Of course Evans went on to miss both in a tight game and the Nuggets ended up losing by 2. It was a good game and it gives the Clippers some more momentum heading down the home stretch as they try to keep the #5 spot in the West.

Since I was in a suite I was able to watch the Dodgers game against the Braves whenever I got a chance and the Dodgers picked up win #1 of the year and of the Grady Little era. Hope there are many more to come this year. I can't wait to head up to Chavez Ravine, down some 40's in the parking lot and watch the Dodgers, hopefully in a week and a half against the giants and that cheater Barry Bonds as long as I don't have to work. Speaking of Bonds, I saw a few clips of his new show on ESPN and I must say it was awesome. Seeing him cry and complain and whine was great, he deserves it all and I'll be glad when he's gone. This new investigation that the MLB is heading up will finally dig up everything necessary and prove him to be the cheater that he is. The best part of it was the billboard they've put up by Pac Bell SBC AT&T Park which just says "TRADE BARRY," although no one will take him due to his baggage.
