NBA Roundup: Pass The Steve Nash, Please

Notes on Thursday's games in the National Basketball Association ...

This Too Shall Pass. The art of the pass is not lost on Steve Nash, who had a rather nasty game on Thursday, even for him. Nash had a season-high 21 assists — becoming the first player in nine years with two 20-assist games in a season — leading the Suns to a 109-90 win over the Cavaliers despite LeBron's 34 points. The Suns had 33 assists on 37 baskets. The last player besides Nash to have two 20-assist games in the same season? No, we're afraid the correct answer is current Dallas Mavericks' coach Avery Johnson, not Yinka Dare.

Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E Becomes Final Today. Ugly divorce proceedings seem to agree with Jason Kidd. America's favorite battered husband had a triple-double — the 82nd of his career — as the Nets beat the Bulls 86-83. Kidd had 23 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists.

Webber Coming Home?. Yahoo sports is reporting that Chris Webber is close to signing with the Pistons, which makes sense we suppose. The ex-Michigan Fab Five member can't officially join the team until Monday. Steve Fisher could not be reached for comment.
