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

Who Owns This Place? We love it when players just go off for no apparent reason; and not in the bad Carmelo Anthony way, but in the good, Gilbert Arenas just scored 60 way. That's right, Agent Zero went a tad insane on Sunday at The Forum — or more so than usual, anyway — and scored 60 on the Lakers, the first time anyone has done that since Wilt Chamberlain. Washington beat Los Angeles 147-141 in overtime, and Kobe Bryant has to be thinking 'What do I have to do?' after scoring 45 points of his own.


Where's The Big Love For Jazz? Meanwhile, Utah is sneaking around with an 18-6 record that no one seems to notice, even though it's the second-best mark in all of the NBA. Le Jazz beat the Pacers 104-94 on Sunday, holding Indiana to 36.5 percent shooting.

Mr. Big Shot, Who Do You Think You Are? Jason Maxiell filled in for Rasheed Wallace's sore ankles and had 17 points and 12 rebounds, including the clinching shot with 6 seconds left, in the Pistons' 97-93 win over the SuperSonics.

Yao, Baby. Yao Ming had 32 points and 10 rebounds, Rafer Alston had 24 points, and Tracy McGrady had zero points (still sidelined) as the Rockets ended a three-game losing streak, winning 108-103 vover the Clippers.
