Despite losing Peja Stojakovic and Doug Christie for big portions of the game with sprained ankles, the boys from Sacramento were still Kings of the hill. C-Webb blew up for 31 points, 15 rebounds and five dishes in the win, giving Sacto a 2-1 advantage in the series. Upon seeing Peja enter the locker room in the third quarter, Christie insisted on returning to the game to give his team a needed boost, considering they had let a 15-point lead evaporate. The defensive stopper put on a sick offensive display, converting on every single shot he attempted and amassing 14 big points in the fourth. In an effort to recreate the cacophonous environment found at Arco Arena, 500 cowbells were distributed to Mavs fans seated behind the Kings' bench. Please don't tell us that cowbells are next year's bobbleheads. ... Did you ever notice how often Steve Nash licks his fingers. Dude is so obsessive about it that he even moistens the digits mid-dribble on fast breaks. Now that's Nashty.

The Hive wasn't buzzing so much as echoing as the Hornets whooped on the Nets. B. Diddy got his schwerve on to the tune of 26 points, seven boards, eight dimes and seven swipes. The pivotal moment in the game cane in the second quarter when Jason Kidd and David Wesley butted heads and both men dropped to the floor. Wesley ended up with a huge knot on his noggin after the game but Kidd was wearing a crimson mask just seconds after the "head-on" collision. The wound was so bad that team doctors lost count of how many stitches were needed to close the gash above his eye. You know Joumana will be giving him some TLC tonight. Kidd came back for the second half but the Nets could not, especially since their leader only saw five minutes of action. If ever there was a case for Kidd to be MVP, here is exhibit A. Speaking of the MVP, Tim Duncan officially captured the title over J-Kidd by a 954-897 score. The vote was close but still was only the fifth-closest in League history. FYI, Ben Wallace got more votes than Paul Pierce, KG and Michael Jordan. Duke's Mike Dunleavy Jr. declared for the draft yesterday but did not hire an agent. Scouts have him pegged as a Top 5 pick, but he'll return to school if he feels he's slipped to the lower end of the lottery by the deadline. ... Damon Stoudamire and his pops had felony marijuana possession charges filed against them yesterday after a pound of the sticky icky was found in the mighty mite's crib. We're just glad to see that rare father-son bond taking place through a common interest. Geroge Karl had hip replacement surgery on Wednesday. No wonder he was so damn irritable all season long. We're out like a pint of blood from Kidd's melon.
