DIME MAGAZINE DAILY SMACK: Pacers' foul loss; Dirty DA-na

How sick do the Pacers feel this morning? They battled the Mavs last night tooth and nail to the bitter end of double overtime, only to have the last shot be a fadeaway by Jonathan Bender that hit the side of the backboard from 10 feet away. Each team scored in the 140s. We're pretty sure the Mavs' defense wasn't so tight that there wasn't some way to get Reggie or Jalen the ball.

The Pacers missed four foul shots in a row with the scored tied and three seconds left in the first overtime — two by Jamaal Tinsley and two by Jeff Foster. ... Oh, that's nice. Someone pulled Austin Croshere out from underneath his giant pile of money to score a career high 32 points. One of the Greatest Things We've Ever Seen at and NBA Game: In Orlando last night, when the Magic's starting lineup was being announced, they were playing Alien Ant Farm's cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal." When they announced Darrell Armstrong's name, DA came off the bench doing the dance from the "Thriller" video. ... No word on whether he's been trying to buy Patrick Ewing's bones. Baron Davis is the king of dribbling all over the court, making it a point to work all five members of the other team before scoring. He did it again last night against Boston, bobbing and weaving in a big circle before deciding to go to the reverse layup. How do the Wizards pull 27 total team rebounds and 22 of them end up being offensive? Speaking of offensive, have some of Greg Ostertag. Jerry Sloan sent his ass to the locker room with about eight minutes to go in the 3rd quarter after Ostertag reportedly bumped into Sloan on the sideline. Did he bump his coach? "You're not going to get an answer from me," Ostertag told reporters after the game. Sloan said he was definitely going to suspend Ostertag for the incident. Sloan should fine his clown ass for being 7'2" and grabbing less than 5 boards a night. Did you see Q in the Clips-Knicks game last night? He was feelin' it on his way to dropping 31 in the Clip's 112-110 victory. At one point he was just yelling "Give me the f***ing ball" over and over. Cool. How freakin' great is Hugh Hefner? The word is he's working on a new reality TV show called "Who Wants to be a Playboy Playmate?" The plan is for 12 hot chicks to live together in a house for two weeks, with one winner becoming an actual Playmate. Please, please someone send Al Snow over to make them wrestle each other. Don't forget, tonight at 10 p.m. on MTV they're doing a special "NBA Cribs" edition. We're out like Darrell Armstrong's zipper jacket.
