Saw Terminator: Salvation tonight and as Dr. Greenbaumberg said – it really fell apart in the last 30 minutes. One thought I couldn’t quite get over the entire movie was that if I’m part of the resistance I would probably just give up.  That’s right – I, Scott Howard, will gladly give myself up to my machine overlords.

Magicians 103 Cavs 90 – By the ghost of Dennis Scott, Superman has bested the King and Orlando’s going back to the NBA Finals.  The Magicians finished off the Cavs in a blowout and Louie’s prophecy has come true.

Orlando took control of the game in the 2nd quarter, took an 18 point lead into half time and never looked back.  In the end the story of the game – and the series – was the Cavs inability to contain Dwight Howard.  Howard poured in 40 points to go with 14 rebounds to lead Orlando.  (more…)

Last week I spent some time in my childhood room. This is interesting for the sole reason that my room contains the most random sports memorabilia possible. A small sampling for you: (1) AC Green signed basketball (2) Arizona Icecats puck (apparently their some sort of club hockey team for the University of Arizona) and (3) Tucson Toros batting helmet. Does any of that make sense? No it doesn’t. Does this lead-in make sense? Also no. With that – enjoy the Nightcap.

It's Easier to Witness in a Still Shot

It's Easier to Witness in a Still Shot

Cavs 96 Magicians 95 – I’m a witness. You’re a witness. We’re all witnesses. LeBron James nailed a contested 3-pointer from the top of the key as time expired to defeat Orlando and even the Eastern Conference Finals at 1 game each. LeBron hit his shot off of an inbounds pass from Mo Williams with 1 second remaining on the clock – and the shot came on the heels of Hedo Turkoglu hitting what was believed to be a game winning 15 footer – leaving behind a flabbergasted Magic team.

Couldn’t get enough eh?  Well you’re always welcome to come in for another dose of NBA Nightcap…

Carmelo Anthony Hits the Game Winning Three Despite Rick Carlisle's Hands-Up Defense

Carmelo Anthony Hits the Game Winning Three Despite Rick Carlisle's Hands-Up Defense

Nuggets 106 Mavericks 105 – In spite of Dallas’ best efforts to make this series competitive, Carmelo Anthony hit a 3 pointer with 1 second remaining to give Denver a 3-0 series lead.  Dallas managed to lose a 105-101 lead with 31 seconds left as Anthony made a quick basket, Kaiser Wilhelm II Dirk Nowitzki missed a jumper, then Anthony hit his game-winning three.  Although Denver is 7-1 this post-season and on the verge of their first Western Conference Finals since 1985, I still think they aren’t THAT good.  Not that my opinion matters (but it does since it’s both right and our blog) but I think their run to the conference finals is based more upon the fact that the Hornets packed it in like a high school senior in May and the Mavericks only made the 2nd round because the Argentenian Satan Manu Ginobili was out with injury than the fact that they are an actual threat to make the NBA Finals.  Provided they finish off the Mavs, the Lakers should make quick work of the Nuggets.

NBA Nightcap

Coronation Time for King James

Coronation Time for King James

Cavaliers 99 Hawks 72 – Call him King James, call him MVP, call him whatever you want really…but just make sure to call this series over in 5 games tops.  The newly minted MVP poured in 34 points to go with 10 rebounds, 3 assists, and 4 steals to lead Cleveland.  Atlanta exhibited all the classic signs of a team who was just happy to be there, scoring just 28 points in the 2nd half, and went on to lose by 27.  It seems that resistance is a little bit futile for the Hawks, and the rest of the Eastern Conference for that matter, because Cleveland has been a force so far this post-season, winning all 5 of their games by double figures.  Game 2 of this supposed “series” is Thursday night.
