Does anyone want the second seed in the West? Neither the Spurs, the Lakers nor the Clippers are playing terribly well right now. If any of them rip off a hot streak, they'll put themselves in nice position behind OKC in the West playoff bracket. And... what's this? There's another team looking to make an upward move? It's... yes, it's our old friends the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavs have won four straight and with a W tonight will be just half a game behind the purple and gold. Good thing the Lakers are 100 percent bulletproof on the road.

Rekindle your love affair with alcohol whenever someone mentions:

  • Andrew Bynum getting ejected last night,
  • Derek Fisher making his debut for the Thunder,
  • How the Lakers have won their last four regular-season games against the Mavs,
  • How Kobe Bryant has shot less than 30 percent against Dallas this season, or
  • Dirk's fadeaway.

Starting to feel like spring around here, yeah?
