LA Clippers defeat Boston Celtics 93-91. OM-fucking-G indeed. Eric Gordon left the game with a shoulder injury and Baron Davis fouled out for the Clips, but they managed to stun the basketball world and defeat the reigning champs. The Clippers turned the ball over eight less time than the Celtics and they outscored the Celtics by a huge margin in the paint. Zach Randolph led all scorers with 30 points with four other Clips scoring in double figures.
Philadelphia Flyers defeat LA Kings 2-0. The Kings stumbled in the second game of their road trip after having defeated the Minnesota Wild the night before in a shootout. They couldn't get going at all allowing recently slumping goalie Martin Biron to notch his second shutout of the season.
Chicago Cubs defeat LA Dodgers 5-3. It's not really a game of note really. It's spring training after all, and I won't make a habit of recapping every spring training game. But it's live baseball, and it was refreshing to listen to. Of note though was reliever and fifth starter hopeful Ramon Troncoso gave up a grand slam. Not a good sign for a staff that is pretty deficient of pitching.
We should know later today whether Manny Ramirez will agree to the Dodgers' contract offer. I really like the offer and think it's a win-win situation for both the Dodgers and Manny. If Manny performs well and the market takes a turn for the better, he can opt out and go back on the open market. If he chooses to stay, the Dodgers get Manny for three years at a relative bargain.
