Every night there are some stupendous, silly, stupid, or downright outlandish individual lines from around the lig. Doing Lines lets you know which one tops the list.
Yeah, every night there are some stupendous lines. Thursday night, they were just stupendously bad! On an night when the BCS Championship game took over most of America's televisions, the NBA made sure to only have two very underwhelming games schedule. Knicks v. Mavs and Clippers v. Spurs. Yep, they might have been better off not having any games.
Gator Tribute Falls Short:David Lee tried to pay tribute to his Florida Gators with a 13 point, 15 rebound night. However, his team didn't hold up their end of the bargain, as they lost to the Mavs 99-94. In that game, Eddy Curry also saw his first action of the season, scoring 2 points and grabbing 2 points in 3 minutes of action. Yipee!
All-Stars Underwhelm: How bad were last nights games? Well the two best players playing last night both had off nights. Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan combined to score 18 points on 7-24 shooting. Gross! It was as if the two of them realized no one was watching and figured it would be okay to take a night off. Not cool guys...not cool at all.
Don't worry, the league will make up for Thursday's irrelevance with a few gems and a full slate of games tonight. Check the NBA Guide later today for the details.
