HoopsHype Dallas Mavericks twitter
The nice thing about being iced in is there were some good NBA, NFL and NCAA games on TV over the weekend. Some good movies, too.
It took Dirk awhile to get his legs back after knee surgery last year. The same holds true for Kobe this year.
Nick Young, ladies & gentlemen...
Amir Johnson seems cool with Gay trade.
Kobe has more turnovers (6) than points (5). And we're in the 3rd quarter.
Back to Kobe. He's headed for a 14-5-6 night on 5-of-13 shooting.
D'Antoni's pre-Kobe Lakers: 4th in assists at 24.1 (17th last season) & 3rd in 3FG% at 40.7 (19th last yr) and 3FGA (26.3).
Was that a Kareem sky-hook airball by Kobe?
Let's play Which is the BCS Game?: A. Texas vs. Oregon B. Oklahoma St vs. Missouri C. K-State vs. Michigan D. Baylor vs. Central Florida
Bryon Bell. I like that. He said he's from Greenville, TX. -- not that he went to college at New Mexico. Way to represent your hometown.
It would be out of the ordinary but not unheard of for those players traded to the Kings to be avail on that quick of a turnaround
Raptors in LA so perhaps traded players could arrive in Sacramento, have trade approved & physicals passed for 2moro vs Mavs. Stay tuned
Hey, you know, I like Greivis Vasquez.
Twitter reporters on Rudy Gay trade: He & Aaron Gray to Sac for Greivis Vazquez, Patrick Patterson, Chuck Hayes, John Salmons. Still in flux
Certainly significant impact on Mavs at Kings out here tomorrow night if that comes to pass
Matt Prater hit from 64 yds for Denver vs Tennessee for those who may be wondering what I am talking about
And someone has already changed Tom Dempsey's Wikipedia page to reflect he no longer shares in record for longest FG in NFL history
Is this Philly, Baltimore, my backyard, Washington DC, Anchorage, Pittsburgh or Siberia? http://t.co/YnpTxTJL21
Best as I can tell, last night was Monta's 2nd buzzer beating winner (also vs Hou 2/27/13). 3 other winning FGM w/ 1.0 or less remaining
4 of those ending this yer including North Texas v UNLV matchup on New Years Day in Dallas. (Tulane & Mike Leach's WSU go to bowls also)
Longest bowl droughts in FBS: New Mex. St (1960), E. Michigan (1987), UNLV (2000), Tulane (2002), Wash St. (2003), North Texas & UAB (2004)
Great to see in those two games that Ellis is 5-for-7 on clutch FGs (final 5 mins, game within 6 pts). Had been 2-for-15 this yr before that
Dirk & Monta scored last 19 pts in comeback win vs Charlotte Tuesday & duo accounted for final 14 pts in thriller in Portland last nite
Because of divisional obligations, I'm subjected to Giants-Chargers over Seahawks-Niners? Are you kidding me?!
In the snow Ravens just drove down the field in 40 seconds...of course they had to cut away during the review due to NFL TV rules
Will the Vikings kick it to Jacoby Jones?
Las Vegas Sun cites source confirming UNLV will be North Texas' opponent in Heart of Dallas Bowl on New Year's Day
Nice meltdown today by the Lions...
Adam Vinatieri is laughing about all this hubbub over kicking in the snow
One place I'm glad I'm not: The Linc parking lot in about an hour.
Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth on Dec. 30th will be Navy vs Middle Tennessee
North Texas has accepted invitation to Heart Of Dallas Bowl on New Year's Day. Opponent TBA. Ends longest bowl drought among TX FBS programs
That Leon Lett Thanksgiving Day blunder against Miami? I couldn't even get out of my driveway for the snow and ice.
This Lions at Eagles game looks fun, glad its on FOX here in Sacramento...
Stretch of Calif Int'l Marathon by hotel in Sacramento this morn, thinking about what a bummer it is for those who trained to run in Dallas
FINAO. My word for my companies. Failure Is Not An Option.
Wheels down in Sac Town!
Night after going 17/23 on 3s v Utah, Portland goes 9/30 v Mavs. Wesley Matthews was 51% for yr, went 0/4 ending strk of 31 in a row w/ a 3
That was clearly a mistake. # demosoftwareproblems
Wheels up to Sacramento...
Also, Brad Davis just informed me that my post entry passing to Dirk needs to be up to par by the Sacramento game. I get to redeem myself.
Just informed Dirk his shot with 45 secs left was credited to Monta. He'll be credited later, but he was more concerned with the win.
Monta: "We'll take it game by game, but it was (against) a great team. Crazy game, and thank God we came out with the win."
Mavs win tonight ends Portland's 7 game home win streak & 4 game overall win strk. Drops em to 17-4. Mavs now 13-8...
Big big win!!Great effort tonight! It was crazy but fun! Increíble final! Gran partido! Fue un locura pero divertido http://t.co/hXg8WYLBNi
During the 3-game Dec. 14-20 homestand, Dirk (25,496) will pass Alex English (25,613) for 13th place on the NBA's all-time scoring list.
Dirk: "This was a fun atmosphere and fun game to play for us. We're fortunate to get out with a win. Hell of a team effort."
Dirk: "Monta made a heck of a shot. That's his play -- going right. That's what he does, and that was a big shot for us."
Dirk: "I actually ran my route, and I didn't even see Monta caught the ball. By the time I turned around the shot was in the air."
Last at the buzzer winner for Dallas was Dirk in Milwaukee in 115-113 OT win on Nov. 16, 2009
Monta: "It was a play Coach drew up today, this morning. We didn't expect to use it tonight, but we did and came out with a shot."
Monta Ellis says the play was designed to do exactly what you saw. Dirk wasn't even an option. Vince was curling or Calderon was 3rd look.
