Orlando Magic defeat LA Clippers 95-88. Man Dwight Howard has a tiny head, but boy can he play. He had a monster of a game scoring 22 points a notching 20 rebounds with six steals. And the Magic needed every point from their big man because at the end of three quarters the Clippers were leading by nine. Then the fourth quarter happened when the Clippers scored only two points in the first eight minutes. Now I've actually watched a couple of Clippers games recently, and they're not horrible. They have great shooters in Baron Davis, Al Thornton and Eric Gordon. It's just something happens in that fourth quarter where it falls apart.

  • I feel very bad for Boise State. The Broncos were one of two schools to go undefeated in college football, was ranked ninth in the BCS and were left out of the BCS bowl games. Instead tenth-ranked Ohio State with two losses was picked to go to the Fiesta Bowl to face #3 Texas Longhorns. Looking at the Buckeye's recent spate of epic fails in bowl games (blow out losses to Florida and LSU in consecutive championship games) and their cupcake schedule with out-of-conference matchups against Ohio, Youngstown State and Troy, it seems they are hardly deserving of a Fiesta Bowl spot. So instead Boise State will play in the Poinsettia Bowl against #11 TCU Horned Frogs. This should be a very good matchup, however instead of getting $17 million payout, the Broncos will have to settle for $750,000.
