Congratulations to “rayhead” who won the $100 first prize in last night’s Freeroll by scoring over 300 points. “FuriousandtheBigGuy” earned $60 for second and “gryfin1” gets $30 for finishing third.
For the entire first half, it looked like Miami really didn’t care about their win streak, as the wounded, underdog Cavaliers raced out to a 55-34 lead and LeBron James had just six points. They were down by as much as 27 in the third, when the King finally went to work, finishing with a triple-double (25 PTS, 12 REB, 10 AST, 3 STL, 2 BLK) and lifting his team to a 24th consecutive victory.
Meanwhile in the NBA, the Heat continued to inch closer to NBA history with their 19th straight win, the Lakers continued their march toward the postseason, the Celtics were treated very poorly by the Bobcats and Timberwolves showed everyone “that’s why you play the game”.
Welcome to the latest Championship Week edition of Five Fast Facts.
Gerald Henderson did his best impression of a Blake Griffin “dunk” on Tuesday night against Dwight Howard and the Los Angeles Lakers by literally throwing the ball down at the rim, drawing ooh’s and aah’s from the crowd.
