What I Learned Last Night: Nov 10, 2012


Every night (well – perhaps not EVERY night) I’ll be firing up my NBA League Pass and scanning that night’s box scores to bring you, my beloved reader, what I learned from the NBA that night.  Because the internet was invented for knee-jerk, totally premature, irrational reactions to things.

Stack Is Back

How bad are the Orlando Magic?  So bad that 38-year-old Jerry Stackhouse, in his first action of the year, scored 11 points in 10 minutes.  Now that is bad.

Same Ol’, Same Ol’

How good is Rajon Rondo?  So good that he can register a 20 assist game and it doesn’t surprise anyone.  Yawn.

Age Is Just A Number

Break out the Knicks!  Gotham’s finest are 4-0 thus far, despite starting a 39-year-old point guard and giving minutes off the bench to a 40-year-old, a 35-year-old, and two 38-year-old.  

Not Ready For his Close-Up?

Josh Smith was supposed to be “The Man” for the Hawks this year now that Joe Johnson is in Brooklyn.  Unfortunately for Atlanta fans he’s off to the worst season of his career, and is shooting a paltry 38.5% from the floor after shooting 6-9 last night versus the Heat.

Don’t Piss Him Off

Anthony Davis is a pretty mild-mannered kid, but Byron Mullens made the mistake of getting into a pushing match with Davis last night, which set Davis off.  After that Davis turned into the Incredible Hulk.  23 points, 11 boards, 2 steals, 5 blocks.

Lakers 101, Warriors 77

So it really was Mike Brown‘s fault all along.
