🏀 We Are All Witnesses

A weekend of re-writing the history books...

Happy Monday! This is a Monday you’re actually allowed to smile on because it’s early March and that means college basketball madness is in the air! The regular season is finishing up this week with conference tournaments tipping off in a few days. Speaking of college ball, we have a new all-time leading scorer for both the men and women, and at this point you know her name. The NHL featured a heavyweight matchup, not in terms of teams, but fists. The Warriors helped the Celtics make history and are the Clippers the best team in the West? Let’s dive in and find out!

WTF Stat: Over an active 11-game win streak, the Celtics have a 22.1-point margin of victory, the highest point differential in NBA history over a win streak of 10+ games.

🏀 Iowa G Caitlin Clark dropped 35 points vs. No. 2 Ohio State on Sunday evening to break the DI men’s and women’s all-time career scoring record with 3,685 total points passing the legendary Pete Maravich - ‘Pistol’ Pete’s 3,667-point record stood for more than 54 years and now ‘Ponytail Pete’ owns the throne, a nickname Caitlin coined herself

🏀 Los Angeles Lakers F LeBron James became the first NBA player to ever pass 40,000 career points scoring 26 points in a loss to the Nuggets Saturday - yes, the subject line was meant to highlight Clark, but it’s also an ode to the King’s famous Nike campaign

🏀 New York Knicks G Jalen Brunson limped off the court with a non-contact injury to his left knee in the first minute of a win against the Cavs last night - Brunson averages 27 PPG and made his first All-Star game this season

  • Los Angeles Kings 5, New Jersey Devils 1: Jersey opened up with a goal 15 seconds into the game Sunday but went downhill from there as Phillip Danault buried an empty netter to cap off a hat trick - bad weekend in Cali for the Devils as superstar Jack Hughes fumbled a penalty shot with 2 seconds left in regulation losing to the Ducks Friday night

NBA - Top Games

  • Boston Celtics 140, Golden State Warriors 88: On Jayson Tatum’s 26th birthday he scored 27 and with help from his All-Star teammate Jaylen Brown (29 PTS) the Celtics grabbed their third largest win in franchise history, and they set a league record with their third win this season by 50+ points (most in NBA history) - starters from both sides came out in the 3rd quarter with Steph Curry scoring a season-low 4 points

  • Los Angeles Clippers 89, Minnesota Timberwolves 88: Two of the West’s top teams found themselves in a defensive battle yesterday with Kawhi Leonard (32 PTS, 5 REB) helping the Clips edge out the T-Wolves despite James Harden shooting 0-10 from the field with only 4 total points - there is now a three-way tie for the No. 1 seed in the West between Denver, OKC and Minnesota with the Clips in the No. 4 spot two games behind
