While You Were Sleeping - March 24th

New, comment
Presswire

Last night was pick your poison night. Some shuffling around above the Jazz, a little below, but nothing to really help the Jazz, per se. After the final buzzer of last night's games, the Jazz sat in the same spot (7th) and a game out of 4th.

While you were sleeping:

The Good News!

  • None of it was "good"

Meh_ty_medium

The 'Meh' (it was all 'meh')

  • Grizzlies 85 - Clippers 101: Home sweet home for the struggling Clips. You're safe for now, VDN. Safe for now.
  • Spurs 89 - Hornets 86: Another close one for the Hornets. Little to no chance for the Jazz to catch the Spurs anyway.
  • Mavericks 101 - Rockets 99: This one was tight, too. Rox drop out of the playoff picture by a half game.
  • Kings 108 - Warriors 111: This was the closest to "good". All depends on how the rest of the season goes down.

The Bad:

  • None of it bad, either.

Tonight's Important Games:

  • Jazz @ Hawks: I LOVE Sunday afternoon games. The boys gotta help themselves here.
  • Suns @ Cavaliers: NBA.com is touting the PG Battle as the Suns finish up their long roadie.
  • Nuggets @ Timberwolves: Wolves should be fired up after a tough 2OT loss to OKC the other night
  • 76ers @ Spurs: Spurs coming off b2b. Will the old fellas play?
  • Heat @ Thunder: ESPN's "Possible NBA Finals Preview". Probably.
  • Warriors @ Trailblazers: Two powerful tank commanders go head to head. Think Rommel vs. Patton.
  • Grizzlies @ Lakers: Same place, different lighting for the Grizzlies. Unlike the Spurs, the Lakers are catch-able.
I hope I didn't miss anything this time. Whew.
