NBA Roundup: The Sun God Ra Is Very Pleased

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

The Hibachi Will Not Run On Solar Power. So ... we're assuming that the Gilbert Arenas Revenge Tour is good for only one win per team? That's kind of lame. After scoring 54 against the Suns the last time the teams played, Arenas scored 31 — but started 1-for-6 from the floor — on Tuesday as the Suns clobbered the Wizards 127-105. Steve Nash scored 27 points for Phoenix on 11-for-13 shooting and had 14 assists as the Suns won their 14th straight. Remember the teams' previous meeting in Phoenix, when Washington won in overtime as Arenas scored 54 and was yelling "Hibachi" after each of his scores? That was fun.

Are You Not Entertained? When do the Suns next play the Mavericks, because we kind of want to see that in person. Let's see ... March 14. In Dallas. Well, maybe one of them will fall apart by then. Dirk Nowitzki's 33 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists led the Mavericks to a 111-95 win over Orlando on Tuesday, Dallas' 35th win of the season, and 21st in their past 22 games.

The Dynamic Duo Strike Again. Meanwhile, the Nuggets are preparing to crash the party, as they claimed their fifth straight win in the second round of the Allen Iverson/Carmelo Anthony Experience Starring Steve Blake. Anthony, in his second game back after a suspension, scored 34, with Iverson scoring 21, as Denver beat Seattle 117-112. Blake had two key 3-pointers in the late going. Iverson also scored his 20,000th career point, which was subtracted from his game totals and sent to the NBA Hall of Fame in a ziplock baggie.

All The NOOCH That's Fit To Print. Hey, and Iverson's old team is even winning! Kyle Korver had 25 points as Philadelphia beat New Orleans 102-96.
