Steve Nash is the toughest guy in the NBA
Steve Nash is from Canada. Steve Nash is tough. We know this after last year when he had his nose nearly broken off in last years playoffs. In last nights game against the Jazz he resembled an old school hockey player with a missing tooth after taking and inadvertent elbow from Carlos Boozer. Despite looking like some sort of monster, he was still able to lead his team to a 103-98 victory over the Jazz.
Here is an up close look at toothless Nash in his interview with Michelle Tafoya:
Rockets can’t hit a Free Throw to save their lives
So the Rockets went 6-22 from the Free throw line last night. I’ll say it again, 6-22 from the Free throw line. These are shots where there are not being defended! Somehow they still managed to beat the Pistons in last nights game though. The final score was 80-77.
Prior to this game, Yao called his team soft. This must have motivated his guys to toughen up. Especially Tracy McGrady on this play:

- The Sixers do not win this game without Samuel Dalembert. They don’t even come close. Big Sam turned in his best game of the season, and possibly the best game of his career tonight and powered the Sixers to their fourth straight win, 98-94 over the T-Wolves.
