Check out the Taj Gibson-Elton Brand scuffle video above! #JLin will still be out, while the #Knicks take on the Heat Game 5: 7PM TNT tonight!!! The Heat lead the #Playoff series 3-1, so the #Knicks must win-or-go-home!

The Indiana Pacers closed out the Orlando Magic series with a crushing 105-87 win, last night! The Magic went packing losing the series decidedly 4-1! Danny Granger led the Pacers with 25 points, and Nick Collison added 19 points! Jameer Nelson led the (Howard-less) Magic with 27 points!

The Denver Nuggets held-on to a 102-99 win over the LA Lakers, last night! The Nuggets put it all on the line, and needed to win to avoid elimination; the Lakers still lead the #Playoff series 3-2! #Kobe and Ramon Sessions missed wide-open threes that would have sent the game into OT!

The game was straight up ugly with the Bulls leading 35-26 at halftime??!! Besides Bulls’ Luol Deng 24 points and Carlos Boozer 19 points and 13 boards, nobody was on the scoreboard! For the Sixers, besides Jru Holliday 16 points, everyone else barely reached double-digits! Check out Elton Brand and Taj Gibson scramble and elbows thrown video above! I do not know if (any) suspensions will given for this small melee?!
