Friday! And it only begins for me. While everyone and their dog is starting a four/five/whatever day weekend, I’m working straight through, until 3 a.m. each night. Whooooooo. Not complaining though, I’ll get lots of work done! Okay, I probably won’t since I never get as much writing accomplished as I hope, but you know how it goes.

Before I go any further…. Not sure how he feels about this, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY BENGTSON. Sending you love and happiness and nice weather to go biking and everything else you’d want on your birthday!

In a weird game where the Bulls wore these ugly dark green jerseys that just looked as though their black uniforms were faded, they took down the Sixers 113-99. Didn’t see much of this one and what I did see, was confusing because the Sixers looked like they were the Bulls and then I was trying to wrap my head around the whole thing. Again. And then again… And again.

Anyway, the game was tied a the half, 50-all, but the Bulls pulled away in the second as they outscored Philly by 10 in the third and rolled to the victory from there. Tyrus Thomas had 24 points for the Bulls and was perfect from the line, shooting 14-14. Ben Gordon also scored 24 and Derrick Rose had 16 points and 8 assists. The Sixers were led by Andre Igoudala’s 19 points, 10 assists and 7 boards. Andre Miller added 20 points and Louis Williams scored 16 off of the bench.

While the Kings have been playing spoiler and taking teams to the brink before falling, they were no match for the Rockets as Houston took the 115-98 victory over Sacramento, topping 30 in three quarters and getting 26 points from Ron Artest. The Rockets shot 54% for the game as compared to 44% for the Kings. 20 points and 9 boards for Yao Ming, 15 points and 8 rebounds for Luis Scola and 13 for Von Wafer off of the bench. The Kings were without Kevin Martin, and were led by Spencer Hawes and his 22 points and 11 rebounds. Jason Thompson added 16 points and 10 rebounds (including 8 offensive), and 17 apiece from Andres Nocioni and Francisxo Garcia.

At the time that I write this, the Lakers are up seven on the Nuggets in the third. I’m planning on updating, but if I don’t wake up in time, I’m saying the Lakers are taking this one. JR has been great, Kobe’s been better and Billups looks like he’s favoring his hand. Pau’s contining to be great and Andrew Bynum is back.

That’s all I’ve got for you tonight. I’m fading guys, fast.

PS, I’m so confident that LA is taking this one, I’m making that my sub-title! Have a wonderful weekend, see you Monday where we will ALL be healthy!
