Not sure exactly what's going on, but just to be sure that God isn't up to some sort of Armageddon-like shenanigans, if you need me I'll be in a sealed grotto at the zoo. The Warriors — whom I believe began the season 0-6 — trounced the Suns on Monday, but that's not the big news. The Knicks have now won two in a row. The Knicks, folks.

In Oakland, Monta Ellis scored 15 consecutive points in the fourth quarter to finish with a career-high matching 31, as the Warriors snapped the Suns' eight-game winning streak with a 129-114 win. Stephen Jackson scored a season-high 32 pointsand Baron Davis had 28 points, 10 assists and six rebounds for Golden State, which has won six of seven. Meanwhile, Stephon Marbury had a season-high 28 points, as the Knicks beat the Utah Jazz 113-109. Not only that, but Isiah Thomas and Marbury seem to be best buddies now. I'm sorry, but I can't go on ... must put on fire-proof PJs in case earth is hurtling toward the sun ...

Meanwhile, Trail Blazers Continue To Suck As Usual. Hedo Turkoglu had 21 points, Rashard Lewis had 20 and the Magic beat the Trail Blazers 85-74 to become the first NBA team to win 13 games this season. Orlando is 8-1 on the road.

Mavericks Are Melting. Melting!. Caron Butler had 35 points and Antwan Jamison had 27 as the Wizards beat the Mavericks 110-98; and that's without Gilbert Arenas, mind you. Dallas has lost three straight.

Revenge Of Beno. We predicted that the Spurs would rue the day that they traded Beno Udrih to the Kings; and we aren't even totally sure what "rue" means! Udrich scored a career-high 27 points against his former team as Sacramento snapped San Antonio's five-game winning streak with a 112-99 win.
