1) I'm adopting Tom's name for his links posts from the summer, because it's a much less generic and boring name.
2) There won't be any editorial pontification from me today, since I have much work to do. I'm sure you're all very disappointed.
KD recaps the beatdown from last night:
Trevor Ariza is still stepping out of his comfort zone more than I care to see (though I submit that the Rockets badly need someone to create shots, and Ariza is at least attempting to), but he had a sound floor game with 17 points and seven assists. Just one turnover. And Kyle Lowry always seemed to be a foot away from the basket and in the air — eight points, 10 assists, eight rebounds, three turnovers and two steals for the Rocket reserve.
I'd also like to remind everyone to check out Straight Outta Vancouver - SBN's resident Grizzlies blog. DJ Turtleface and company write a lot of really good stuff over there. Here's what they had to say about last night.

LeBron James has decided - finally - that he's done talking about free agency. Good Lord, I hope that's true.
Dave Berri (of Wages of Wins fame/infamy) is now writing for the Huffington Post, as well. My general opinion of the "HuffPo" (as the
kids whoever the hell reads it call it) is that it's a collection of blathering idiots, but they've assembled a lot of good sports writers. So maybe there's something useful there.
Anyways, Berri reminds us all that, despite what's often parroted at us by government and sports officials - stadiums and arenas generally do not bring any extra revenue to cities.
That's all folks.
