While You Were Sleeping: Thanks for Nothing

Every team within reach of the Nets played last night... and did no favors.  Here's what happened, now including updates to the Jazz's position.

The Ugly




Washington Wizards 112 @ Indiana Pacers  136

Congratulations to the Pacers for making it back to the Playoffs for the first time in 5 years.  Jordan Crawford jacked up a lot of shots, as Wizard players are wont to do.  Tyler Hansbrough is looking more like Matt Harpring, every day.  Big games from Granger and George.

Washington:  21-57

Cleveland Cavaliers  104 @ Toronto Raptors  96

Someone should explain to the Cavs how this works, cause they're doing the wrong thing.  They are 4-6 in their last ten games and have conceded the worst record to the Timberwolves.  Who knows what the Raptors are doing?

Toronto:  21-57

Sacramento Kings  92 @ San Antonio Spurs  124

Ouch.  Tyreke Evans had a monster dunk.  The Kings defense managed to hold the Spurs to 60.5% shooting, so you're not going to win many games that way.

Sacramento:  23-55

The Good

New Jersey Nets 109 @ Detroit Pistons 116

No Humphries, no Morrow, and no DWill for the Nets.  Hopefully this is a good sign of things to come.  This loss keeps things exactly as they were yesterday morning.

New Jersey:  24-54

Info on the Jazz's pick, after the jump.

Right now the Jazz hold the same spot they have had for weeks, #12 and there was no change on that front.

Phoenix 108 @ Minnesota 98

See, the Timberwolves know how to do it.  Extremely balanced scoring from the Suns and Anthony Randolph seems to be playing fairly well (but, 3 rebounds?)

Phoenix:  38-40

Los Angeles Lakers 87 @ Golden State Warriors 95

The Lakers are not in the spot you want to be in, heading into the playoffs, losing 3 straight- and 2 in a row to lottery bound teams.  Ellis and Curry launched a barrage of shots and Lee was efficient, but the real story is the Lakers looking disinterested at best.  

Golden State:  35-44
