Have some of The Daddy. In fact, have a whole lot of Shaquille. The Diesel was pumping on all cylinders as he exploded for 48 points on 19-24 from the field and added 20 boards as the Lake Show rallied to beat arch-rivals Boston. The C's owned an 11-point lead at one point, but Shaq decided enough was enough and dominated the second half. Guess Jax finally found Shaq's "on" switch. The Smack Gods caught Stack yawning during a timeout while the were getting blown out against the . Jerry, luckily Mike didn't see you yawning or else he might have slapped some respect into you. There's never been a truer example of Ice Cube's "f***ed around and got a triple double" line now that ' game from last night is in the books. Franchise didn't play all that well, yet had enough juice to notch a triple-dip with 13 points, 11 boards and 12 dimes as the took care of the slumping . Visiting teams may not call T-Mac a gracious host but his teammates can now after what Cavs coach Keith Smart said: "I use the word lightly, 'parasites.' (His teammates) feed off his greatness and take advantage of little things." Posting 39 points in 30 minutes will make coaches say the damnedest things. Not that it takes much to beat the Cavs. In yet another potential MVP battle, got the best of as the T-Wolves defeated the red-hot 101-94 last night. The Big Ticket was his usual self working the box score for 24 points, 12 pulls and eight dishes in the phat W. The Pups sit just a half-game back of the Blazers for 4th place and home-court advantage in Round 1 of the playoffs. Ray was a drop of golden sun as the Sonics edged the Nugs in an OT-thriller. Allen finished with seven treys on his way to 38 points. Here's a tip for Denver for next time, guard the shooter. ... had a career night as he led the troops back from a 19-point deficit versus last night and earned a rare W for Indy. J.O. ended the game with 38 points and 18 boards. Puh-lease. We didn't forget about the Madness either. How can we with images of racing down the court and nailing the sickest game-winner of the tourney constantly replaying in our mind's eye? The degree of difficulty on the perfecta trifecta, a one-footer with a hand in his face, was off the chart. Awesome with a capital A, baby. The Terps escaped with a 75-73 victory over NC-Wilmington and are still on track for a repeat as prom king at the Big Dance. You want upsets? You'll be missing because the did it. The No. 12 seed limited the Bulldogs to just 46 points in the one-point upheaval. Will the glass slipper fit or are they a one-hit wonder? In the win that wasn't, was a one-man team in willing St. Joe's into OT by scoring 13 of their last 15 point in regulation versus the Tigers, but Marquise Daniels simply refused to lose. Daniels poured in 25 points, each seemingly a momentum stopping counter-punch to Nelson's fierce jabs. The game might not have gotten a ton of hype, but it should go down in the thing they call annals as one of the tourney's best. We're out like NC-Wilmington's prayers.
