Celtics lose to... Cleveland?!

I'm not sure exactly how this happens, but it just goes to show you that the NBA season is 82 games. The Celtics lost to the Cleveland Cavs last night 95-87, prompting a wave of "Cleveland doesn't need Lebron!" talk from ESPN and probably a few delusional fans.

It is funny, the sentiment was that the aging Celtics will probably cruise though the season half-asleep and then gear up for the playoffs. Last nights game certainly mirrors that sentiment.

And how about Blake Griffin? For the Clippers last night, the guy has 20 points and 14 rebounds, with a few nice entries into his highlight reel. He's going to be a force in the NBA this year, mark it down. Trailblazers lost 98-88, and I'm going to blame Chris Kamen's hair.

The Heat won their second game, by the way, Dwayne Wade scored 30 in a 97-87 victory over the 76ers. You know what this means? Lebron can't carry the team! Or Wade just had a good night. Either or.

The Thunder also came out strong with Kevin "The best player in the NBA" Durant scoring 30 points in a 106-95 win. One thing that struck me is that the Oklahoma City crowd was really into the game. I hate them. That team belongs in Seattle. Okay, I'll move along. The second thing that struck me was just how great the Thunder run the fast break. The ball hardly touches the floor when they turn the switch on another team.

Two nights down, a few months to go.
