When I first saw this score pop up on my Game Cast (I don’t get NBA TV as a part of my cable package; DAMN YOU, Time Warner), I thought it was a sick joke. Granted, I know Denver is plain better than New Orleans, but this???? I called B-Lew, and he said he saw the same thing, and said this reminded him of the Finals, when the Bulls sprayed the Jazz by 42 points back in the day, except this was much worse.
121 – 63.
See, the post was going to be titled “WTF,” due to many events that transpired over the weekend, but after this game last night, everything else is getting put to the backburner. Yes, since this game got so ugly, I’m giving the Raiders a pass for missing out on Michael Crabtree, Jeremy Maclin, and even Percy Harvin, to take Darrius Heyward-Bey with the seventh pick in the NFL Draft. This blowout even takes the cake over that!
121 - 63.
WTF was going to also be in reference to the Chicago-Boston series, which has become a thriller. Game Four provided many memorable moments, tons of big-time shots, Jesus Shuttlesworth going crazy, Ben Gordon grabbing his nuts like we were back in the ‘hood, and draining clutch-shot after clutch-shot, but this game, this game on Monday, this…MASSACRE, has found a way to surpass that. It also found a way to top Hedo Turkoglu’s game-winner against Orlando, or as Chris Webber called him on Inside the NBA, the Michael Jordan of Turkey (which had everyone laughing, except for Sir Charles).
121 – 63.
No playoff team should be beaten by damn near 60, and in the event it does happen, you should be taken out back, and put to sleep…like, right now. This was absolutely disgraceful to the game of basketball. Hopefully, Denver puts them out of their misery in Game Five. There’s nothing left to be said, partially because I don’t know WTF to say. The score speaks for itself.
