Who would have thunk that Portland would run into a fired up Denver squad that would end their league-high 12 game-winning streak? The two teams took an extra frame to decide the winner. The key play of the game was when Bonzi Wells had a sure layup blocked by James Posey and Portland never recovered, despite a 28-point, 10-board effort from Scottie Pippen. If you didn't see Jason Richardson's windmill dunk, get off the computer right now and go watch highlights until you see it.

Tim Duncan posted his League-leading 50th double-dip this season with 22 points and 11 boards in the Spurs shellacking of the Bulls. To add insult to injury, Eddy Curry got stuffed by an aging but not yet over the hill Admiral Sonics center Calvin Booth will undergo season-ending surgery on his right ankle. Between his $34 million contract and Vin Baker's ludicrous deal, the Sonics are dishing out some serious cash for some big men who don't remember what it is like to put he ball on the floor. Still, Seattle was super in beating the Nets, who suffered their fourth straight road defeat ... Last year's Rookie of the Year, Mike Miller, will be out for three weeks of the stretch run with a deep bone bruise and sprained left ankle. Expect T-Mac to average 40-plus points in his absence We have no idea what's going on, but AI only dropped 28 in the thrashing of the Hawks. He's so damn good, we've come to the point where we only address him when he's gone for 40 or more Let the madness continue Please tell us you caught the UConn/Pitt game. The game went into OT and Pitt balled without star guard Brandin Knight, who hurt his knee near the end of regulation. With just 1.8 ticks left on the clock and possession of the ball, Pitt inserted a severely hobbled Knight into the lineup. He hit the front rim on a 70-foot launch. In double OT, super soph point guard Taliek Brown nailed a 30-foot rainbow trifecta with double zeros on the shot clock that killed Pitt's hopes and earned UConn another Big East title Was anything more nutty than the N.C. State's victory over Maryland in the ACC semis? Can J-Will and Duke run the table from here on out? Luke Recker is on top of the world right now. Not only did he win the Big Ten championship for Iowa in the last second, but he nailed the game-winner against his former squad Indiana. Sweet revenge. We're out like Pitt without Knight.
