Portland continued their League-wide dominance since the break with a big W over the Celtics. The two teams combined to hoist a ridiculous 55 3-pointers but converted just 16 of them. You knew it was the Blazers night when Shawn Kemp recorded his second straight double-double and Scottie Pippen successfully broke out the old inbound-off-the-defender's-back trick for the easy deuce. Despite shooting 55 percent for the game, the Bucks dropped a close one to the Hornets on some big buckets by David Wesley late in the game. N'Awlins, er Charlotte, had three cats go double-dipping, led by Monster Mash, who had 31 points and 10 boards. Stack had a sweet scoop oop to Big Ben Wallace for one of his career-high 11 dimes in the Pistons' beat down of the Nugs. The Commish took in the game in the Mile High City and made it through the evening without witnessing a television tossing tirade. But he was upstaged by Frisbee dogs while doing an interview at halftime. Go figure.

The Warriors lost a tight one to the Wiz thanks to a game-breaking charge that the wily Popeye Jones drew against unseasoned rook Gilbert Arenas in the closing seconds. It didn't help that Larry Hughes missed his 20th consecutive trey attempt. The loss overshadowed Jason Richardson's ill-na-na reverse windmill slam early in the fourth. The T-Wolves are pulling out all the stops to try to end their seven-game slide. The newest quick fix is the signing of Robert Pack. Remember him? He was the guy with the sick ups who played about 20 games over eight years. This whole Arkansas-Nolan Richardson situation is a complete mess. The latest statement from the coach indicates that he wants to remain the main man despite twice publicly stating that he would like to be bought out of his contract. "I did not resign or retire, nor did I request to be bought, and I have not been bought out of my contract." A decision is expected from the university's president sometime this week. This whole fiasco has definitely exceeded the allotted 40 minutes of hell. In a surprise to absolutely no one, Duke's J-Dub and UConn's Sue Bird won the Naismith Awards yesterday as top dogs in college basketball. Tar Heel sophomore point guard Brian Morrison has decided to transfer after soiling the Carolina Blue for two years. Morrison figured to lose his job anyway to incoming super frosh Raymond Felton. He has not yet indicated which prestigious program he will ruin next. In non-news, Big 10 Freshmen of the Year Rick Rickert has decided to return to Minnesota for his sophomore season. Given the choice between the CBA and the NBDL, college suddenly wasn't so bad after all. We're out like Morrison from Chapel Hill.
