What Happened Last Night
What Happened Last Night: The Lakers Beat The Thunder (!), The NFC Beat The AFC In The Pro Bowl You Didn’t Watch
You know that lingering parasite, the one in which several non-selected all-star football players compete in a game wearing brightly colored uniforms? Right, the Pro Bowl. Well that went on last night because Roger Goodell enjoys hanging onto the vestiges of decorum, or something. The NFC won, by the way. Oh and there was basketball all day, too.
Another basketball-heavy night, and one sadly devoid of any interesting matchups. Hey, I love the NBA more than anyone, but Milwaukee-Cleveland? Sacramento-Oklahoma City? Utah-Phoenix? Luckily, there were two games of note for their own reasons last night: Brooklyn-Detroit and Los Angeles (Lakers)-Washington.
Welcome to another edition of “What Happened Last Night?” in which we look at stories of note from the previous evening in the sports world, just in case you missed it for whatever reason, although considering last night was Saturday night, I can imagine what you were up to. Anyway, let’s get you up to date.
The NHL is still on strike, MLB is in the offseason, all NFL and NCAA football action is relegated to the weekend, and no one really cares about NCAA basketball until March. This is my favorite time of the year, when the NBA reigns supreme and I don’t have to leave my house. Here’s what you (but not I) missed last night.
It was a pretty busy Friday night in the NBA, with nine games in action. That being said, there were two games of note: the 6-0 New York Knicks vs. the 6-1 Memphis Grizzlies, and the debut of Mike D’Antoni’s offense with the Los Angeles Lakers as they took on the Phoenix Suns.
Need to catch up on the sports scene from last night because you had something sooooooo much more important to do instead? Well, you’re in luck, because I’m going to walk you through it right now. After the jump, drink in the knowledge you so rashly avoided obtaining until now.
