Some basketball team from Charlotte went up to Massachusetts and actually defeated the Boston Globetrotters last night. Jason Richardson was the key to the upset, shooting 14-of-22 in a 34-point, nine-rebound performance. The Celtics, who fell to a league-best 29-4, were hindered by a poor shooting night from Paul Pierce, whose no-look hook shot from half court wasn't falling, and by Kevin Garnett, who drew a critical technical foul for pulling down the referee's pants during a timeout.
Elsewhere in the Association: The other Beast from the East, Detroit, also lost last night, falling 102-86 to Dirk and the Mavericks… Steve Nash left with the "stomach flu" (he's totally pregnant), but the Suns still rallied from a 16-point deficit to win in OT over Indiana. Nash will rejoin the team after its game in Utah, right after he donates some stem cells, so to speak… Whoa, LeBron had an amazing game but his teammates suck? Who could have ever predicted such an outcome?
