First, let's start by wishing everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS! (Unless, of course, you celebrate Hanukkah. In which case, we wish you a Happy Hanukkah.)
Now, down to business:
The Spurs and Suns put on quite a game this afternoon, but ultimately, it was the Spurs stealing Christmas from the Suns on a buzzer-beating three-pointer from Roger Mason (Who?).
Meanwhile, the Lakers stuffed coal in the Celtics' stockings, ending their 19-game winning streak, dropping the Celts to a tragic 27-3 on the year, by pulling away late in the fourth quarter. Kobe finished with 27 points, but it was Pau Gasol's 7-0 run late in the game that sealed the win for L.A.
The NBA certainly hasn't let us down on Christmas day in recent years, and this year was no different. Santa has certainly been good to NBA fans.
Speaking of Santa: Dwyane Wade helped buy a new home for a Miami family whose house burned down recently. Is there anything this guy doesn't do? He leads the league in scoring; wins a gold medal in Beijing; stars in some hilarious T-Mobile commercials with our personal favorite NBA personality (just ahead of Shaq), Charles Barkley; and oh yeah, he also donated $10,000 dollars to three children's organizations and hosted 100 kids at Tuesday's Heat game against the Warriors.
Anyways, hope you all had a great holiday season and finally got that White Power Ranger Sword you wanted 14 years ago!
