Monday's List of 13: Happy Presidents' Day..........(Author unknown)





























13) Kevin Durant scored 51 points, Russell Westbrook 40 as the Thunder won a great NBA game 124-118 in OT over Denver Sunday night. Serge Ibaka blocked 11 shots and had a triple/double for Oklahoma City, which had a 20-0 run that bridged the 2nd/3rd quarters.

12) Durant/Westbrook's combined 91 points were more than six NBA teams scored on Sunday. They do need to develop more scoring options, but in the meantime, they're a lot of fun to watch.

11) Denver's Chris Anderson was +17 in 29 minutes, scoring 11 points with six rebounds; he was on floor in crunchtime, the ultimate compliment for any player, but with all his tattoos and that beard, he is a scary dude to look at. He is the Australian Rodman, I guess. A good player.

10) Chris Mullin is fun to listen to, but he needs to work on talking little louder, or maybe I need a freakin' hearing aide, because I have problems understanding some of HBO's Luck too, but then I listen to Dick Vitale scream and holler and I realize my hearing is still pretty good.

9) The Knicks' bandwagon is taking on so many people that I'm stopping writing about them. Memo to all directors of NBA broadcasts; it is really annoying to show Spike Lee 25 times a game. Trust me on this. He gets on air more than Mike D'Antoni.

8) Bill Haas won a 3-man playoff at the LA Open; Mickelson/Bradley, in losing the playoff, earned $607,800 less than Haas, but they all did pretty well this week. Haas won the $10M FedEx Cup LY, so he's doing OK.

7) Not doing so well is Isiah Thomas, who is now 25-63 as coach down at Florida International. Where does FIU turn if they fire an NBA legend?

6) Charlotte Bobcats lost 108-73 to Indiana, 7th time in this short season they've lost by 30+ points. They're looking like the favorite to win NBA Draft Lottery this spring. They should draft a front office.

5) The lesson learned in the last two notes? Michael Jordan/Isiah Thomas were both great players, but that doesn't make them great coaches or even mediocre executives. Guys who were cruddy players but maybe studied the game more do a much better job. You can look it up.

4) In an unrelated item, we saw that Lamar lost a Bracket Buster game at George Mason Saturday, and were reminded that Pat Knight is now coach of the Cardinals, after getting canned at Texas Tech. Knight is 17-10, 8-4 in his first year at Lamar, tied for 3rd in Southland Conference. His team played the #29 non-conference schedule, so they'll be interesting to follow when the Southland Tournament begins next month.

3) Ersan Ilyasova, averaging 9.4 ppg this season, grabbed 25 rebounds and scored 29 points in Milwaukee's 92-85 win in New Jersey. Its very, very hard to grab 25 rebounds in any game, much less an NBA game. Ilyasova averages 7.9 rebounds a game.

2) Golfer Dustin Johnson's grandfather was an All-American basketball player at South Carolina, and was drafted by the Lakers 50 years ago.

1) Every high school basketball player should watch film of a player on Colorado State named Pierce Hornung; he's not the best player the Rams have, but he might be the best teammate. He gets loose balls, he runs the floor, he defends, he rebounds, he is a tough human who does things that help his team win. Every winning team needs players like him.
