How exactly 37-year-old Sam Cassell can score 35 points in an NBA game is kind of a mystery, but he did it anyway, hitting two late free throws to cap his performance and lead the Clips to a 96-95 win over the Nuggets.
Carmelo Anthony got ejected after his second technical foul in the 3rd quarter, and that may have cost Denver the game. 'Melo is kind of the guy you want to be taking the last-second shot when you're down by one. Instead, the Nuggets turned to Earl Boykins. Don't get me wrong: Earl Boykins is a good basketball player, and an excellent backup point guard. But asking him to hit the game-winner over Elton Brand is like asking me to come through with a funny post before I've had any caffeine.
Which explains why this post sucks. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go to the coffeehouse. And by "coffeehouse" I mean "meth lab."
