Seriously, how frustrating must it be to be T-Mac? The dude puts in unearthly performances night in and night out, and a lot of the time it just doesn't matter. After scoring 43 in Game 1 against the (a win), he dropped 46 in Motown last night and still lost, 89-77. He's responsible for almost 60 of their 80, against the best defensive team in the conference, and can't win? Forget his PC quotes after the game, McGrady's gotta be goin' out of his mind. His shot 62 percent from the floor while the rest of his teammates could only muster a 26 percent clip. We're pissed for him. The Philly-New Orleans series is done. Philly's already up 2-0 and and are banged up? Done and done. It's too bad for New Orleans; they've had a nice season and a lot of people thought they could come out of the East, but they're not even going to get a real chance. ... We only caught him for a second, but was wearing a purple suit on the bench? How bizarre was Cheryl Miller's post-game interview with ? First of all, it was obvious that Kenny never gets interviewed on national TV; he was nervous as hell. Second, he was staring at Cheryl with this odd, loving gaze. Uncomfortable. We're pretty sure that and could beat just about anybody in h-o-r-s-e. Neither one of them, especially Van Exel, seems to ever take a shot with a difficulty level less than 7. ... , 45 points. What? ... Did you peep the blond right behind Nellie's spot on the Mavs bench? Not once but twice in the final minutes of the fourth quarter did officials rule that Dallas had hit 3s when their feet were clearly on the line. The first was so blatant that Dirk's entire foot was not on but over the line. The second was on Nash's game winner. The Milwaukee , recently in Toronto, were issued a warning concerning the SARS virus, just saying that if anyone feels ill, to get themselves checked out immediately. There was also the suggestion to stay indoors. Not surprisingly, had a problem with the suggestion. "So everyone in --- Toronto should stay in the house?" Sam said. "It doesn't make sense. I'm a grown man. They can't tell me to stay in the house." Sam, in light of your recent outings, staying in the house for a while isn't really a bad idea. How about the -Pacers game being at 6 p.m. ET tonight? And then the not tipping until 11 p.m. ET? Congrats to winning the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year Award for the second year in a row. He beat out by a little more than 300 votes. We're out like trying to give Sam advice.
