After two big ABC games, a devastating Nets loss and a bunch of college games, I turned New Orleans/Dallas off about halfway through the third. I assumed it was over, and it was, but the Hornets actually made it a game only losing by 8. They are fighting right now, but I just do not think they will make the playoffs this year.
Earlier the Civil War game between the Heat and Magic delivered, but Orlando got the big win at home. Dwyane Wade really needs help and you have to wonder why the Heat did not make a move at the trade deadline. San Antonio would love to dump Michael Finley, and he is someone who, despite his age, could have helped the Heat make a late season run.
