On a team loaded with horrendous contracts Jared Jeffries is often overlooked. Last night the man who signed for $30 million over five years put up a line of zero points, one assist, and two big rebounds against San Antonio. But hey, when you play 16 minutes and only attempt one shot it probably means you're sharing the court with Stephon Marbury and Jamal Crawford. Isiah's dynamic backcourt combined for eight assists and seven turnovers in the 97-93 loss. Eddy Curry was dominant with 25 and 12 while shooting 83% from the field but he wasn't enough to overcome the Spurs. San Antonio 97 - 93 New York
Follow after the jump for more results and my favorite video of the new year.
• Detroit is untouchable. The Pistons look like the best team in the league on the heels of their 11th straight win, a destruction of the Raptors. They got great performances from their starters and subs alike and outscored the home team by 11 in the fourth quarter. It's early but I'm calling it now, the Pistons are way too deep for the Celtics to handle in a seven game series. Detroit 101 - 85 Toronto
• The Big
Three Two. The highest scoring duo of forwards in the NBA is not Nowitzk and Howard, Garnet and Pierce, LeBron and Teamate X. That title belongs to Butler and Jamison. Antawn paced the Wizards with 24 points while Caron contributed 13/7/7 in a drubbing of the beat up Bucks. The win moves Washington back over the .500 mark. Washington 101 - 77 Milwaukee
And now, a look at what happens when people with courtside seats don't pay attention to where they are...
That's why Buckhantz and Chenier are the best in the business!
I love how quickly she gets back to her seat as if it will help to deflect further embarrassment. That's some quality scurrying.
