DIME MAG SMACK: Scottie and Co. completely blew it
First of all, before we get to the unbelievable day of games yesterday we've got to hit you with this story. One of our boys was in the NBC studios for the NBA games the other day. He told us that Tom Tolbert, for the most part at least, was dressed for his TV face time. He was wearing a turtleneck and a blazer sitting behind the desk for the cameras. His pants, though? A pair of those old school Jams Hawaiian shorts with the huge floral prints on them. Scottie Pippen, what the hell was that? Scottie and Co. completely blew it at the end against the Lakers, handing L.A. the series. With the game seemingly locked up for his Blazers, he missed a crucial foul shot and then threw away an inbounds pass to Rasheed on their last chance to win the game with 2 seconds left. How clutch is Robert Horry? He's quietly one of most money players in the League. Dude lays low all season, then makes it his business to cut the hearts out of teams in the playoffs with huge treys down the stretch. Yesterday wasn't any different, when he dropped a dagger from the corner with 2 seconds left, setting up Pippen's turnover.
