DIME MAG DAILY SMACK: Wiz issue Collins a gag order

The message Doug Collins was getting from Wiz brass basically was "Thanks for being our coach, now shut the hell up." Two days after speculating on MJ's status for next year, Collins has been issued a gag order on the subject. Apparently His Airness is so sacred his own coach can't even speak about him. The game between the Nets and the Sixers yesterday afternoon made for some entertaining hoop. For starters, J-Kidd tossed Richard Jefferson an ill one-handed lean-in oop on a breakaway. Then there was Kenyon Martin taking his anger out on the poor, unsuspecting rim with some violent crams. Also, AI's back-up, Speedy Claxton, received three stitches and possibly suffered a concussion after banging heads with Jefferson. An MRI when Speedy returns to Philly will determine just how badly he was knocked silly. Speaking of Kenyon and anger management, how come Danny Fortson isn't receiving the same thug label as Kenyon after picking up a two-game leave of absence for accumulating too many flagrant foul points? Just thought we'd ask. B-Diddy and Co. are really keeping the pressure on the East. The Bugs added another W to their stable of wins thanks to Davis' 22-point, 17-dime night against the lowly Cavs. Davis also limited 'Dre Miller to just 8 points on 4-13 shooting. With the Horri-Bulls latest loss, this time to the equally atrocious Nuggets, the Crilla has lost 14 of their last 15 games. Crumbs Krause must really want J-Dub. The other Jason Williams was straight nasty, scoring 22 points and dishing out a franchise record 19 dimes in a non-televised game against the Warriors. But if no one saw the game, did it really happen?

The Suns/Rockets game was an intense nail-biter. The Matrix knocked down two freebies with just five ticks left on the clock to give Phoenix a two-point lead. Cat Mobley tried to sneak through the lane but had his last-second layup swatted away by Big Jake to preserve the W for the Suns. Props for Jake for earning some ink unrelated to getting dunked on. The Clips/Jazz game was supposed to be a battle for the last playoff spot in the West but it turned into a massacre instead. It was no surprise that age won out against youth since the College Clips have lost every single game they've played at the Delta Center, 21 in all, and haven't won in Utah dating back to April 18, 1989. We know teams can't stand playing in Utah, but this is simply ridiculous. NBDL MVP Ansu Sesay signed a 10-day contract with the Sonics. The dude has hair like Ben Wallace but has actual offensive game ... How 'bout the Final Four? If you thought Indiana didn't have a prayer against Oklahoma, you were mistaken on two counts. It was said during the game that Tom Coverdale received holy water blessed by the Pope to help him heal up for the game. It seemed to have worked, as The Hoosiers continued their made-for-the-movies miracle run to the NCAA Finals. Joining Indiana in the Finals will be the Maryland Terrapins after beating down Roy Williams' Kansas Jayhawks. Juan Dixon went off, shooting the lights out all night long against a hopeless Kansas squad. If you ask us, we're picking the Terps to win by 7 over the Hoosiers and cut down the nets on Monday night. We're out like the Sooners and the Jayhawks.
