NBA Roundup: The Adventures Of Adam Morrison

Notes from Wednesday's games in the National Basketball Association:

So Put Your Hands Together Folks For Adam Morrison! Meet the Bobcats. These days they feature weepy, Che Guevara loving, bangs-challenged former Gonzaga superstar Adam Morrison, who on Wednesday scored a career high 27 points in a 95-92 OT win over the Spurs. Take it, Adam: "The coaches were telling me I was putting too much pressure on myself. Everyone was expecting so much out of me, especially at the pick I went (third overall).'' Morrison was shooting 32 percent from the floor until Tuesday, but is 21-for-41 in his past two games. Charlotte is 2-6. "Morrison is a basketball junkie,'' Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He's a scoring machine. He's a fantastic young talent.'' Zach Randolph led the Trail Blazers with 26 points and 11 rebounds, but shot just 12-of-20 (60 percent) from the line, after going into the game with an 89 percent FT average. Hmm, what could possibly be distracting him?

Jason And The Argonauts. Remember when the knock on Jason Kidd was that he couldn't shoot? Richard Jefferson is out with a sprained ankle and Vince Carter has the flu, so Kidd took over for the Nets, scoring 25 points, to pace a 100-87 win over the Bucks. Carter had 15 points, and Michael Redd 25 points for Milwaukee.

Rockabye Sweet Baby James. More of the sweet goodness from LeBron James, whose 32 points, seven assists and seven rebounds helped the Cavaliers to their fourth straight win; 100-87 over Portland. AP says that the Cavaliers have started the season 6-2 for the second straight year, and why would they lie?


Andre The Giant. Your Andre Iguodala update for today: 12 points, eight rebounds and nine assists; 76ers beat SuperSonics 96-90, breaking a three-game losing streak. Allen Iverson was 6-of-22 from the field for 28 points, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Thank You Very Much. We never thought we'd see the day when the King disrespected Memphis. Mike Bibby's 32 points and 10 assists led Sacramento to its fourth straight win, 115-111 over Memphis.
