  • Boston beat Sacramento 89-69 to kick off its west coast swing.  The Celtics are now 23-3 for the fourth time in team history.  Apparently, last night was the first time in ELEVEN years the Celtics have beaten the Kings.  (The Coffin Corner)
  • Chris Paul gave the Grizzlies the business.  40 points, 5 rebs, 9 assists and 5 steals.  (Give Me The Rock)
  • The Hawks are now officially done rebuilding.  They’ve won five straight for the first time since ’99.  (The Big Lead)
  • The Miami heat are G-A-R-B-A-G-E.  They lost by 11 to the laughable Sixers last night.  The Heat are the worst team in the east, looking up at the Knicks.  Shaq put up 5 points and 10 boards and Wade got blown by like Greg Paulus last night.  J-Will said he’s a high priced prostitute.  It’s rebuilding time in Miami.  (Depressed Fan)
  • New coach, same team.  Chicago Interim coach Pete Myers’ first assignment was a tough one.  Bulls lose to the Spurs 94-79.

Last night’s injury may be signal the end of Alonzo Mourning’s distinguished career. The 15-year veteran tore the patellar tendon in his right knee, sidelining the Heat center for the remainder of the season, at least.

Saying, “it’s over, it’s over” to his teammates, he was helped off the court to a standing ovation. Coming back from kidney transplant surgery, Mourning’s love for the game was self-evident.

Here’s a video tribute to the Miami “Ultimate Warrior”, his memorable NBA Finals speech:
