Getting a bit behind here; my apologies.
Omri Casspi scored 10 points and grabbed seven rebounds in the Sacramento Kings’ 107-104 loss to the Utah Jazz on Monday night. Casspi had the chance to be a hero (at least a temporary one), but his attempt at a game-tying three-point shot went askew.
Meanwhile, the NJ Nets hope Jordan Farmar, who has been out of action since Jan. 26, can return to action in tonight’s game against the New Orleans Hornets.
In a story that appears on today’s NY Post website, Nets coach Avery Johnson praised Farmar
Jordan was good. I don’t think I saw him miss a shot [yesterday]. He’s good for [tonight]…. Jordan has a different command with that second unit, unlike anybody on our team. We definitely missed him. We’re not saying he’s going to come back and be a hero, but it’ll be good to have him back.
Meanwhile (again), on the college level, the embattled Bruce Pearl, coach of the Tennessee Volunteers, returned from his suspension for recruiting violations. The No. 18 University of Kentucky Wildcats gave him a rude welcome back, beating the Vols, 73-61.
