Portland State--- It was a big win yesterday for Portland State and head coach Tyler Geving in many ways. Any time a Big Sky team defeats a Pac-12 team that is huge, even better winning the game on the home floor of USC by defeating the Trojans, 76-68.
This quite possibly could be the best team Tyler Geving has had at Portland State, with lots of scoring power and a deep bench.
It also should be said there are some other talented teams in the Big Sky this year, including the always tough Weber State, Eastern Washington and Northern Arizona.
Scores---- It was a big Saturday, going 3-0, moving the season record to 12-6. So here goes Sunday's games, with some upsets included.
Milwaukee 97 @ Miami 103
Houston 111 @ OKC 112
Golden State 99 @ Lakers 102
Kings/Grizzlies---You might not have known, as I did not, when you protest a game in the NBA, it will cost you $10,000. That is what the Kings will have to give up as per their protest last week of their last second loss to Memphis.
Sacramento is saying time should have run out, before Courtney Lee got off his last second shot which started with 0.3 seconds. For all the old time NBA fans like myself, it brings back the day when there were plenty of poor timers at the table, who often really, almost cheated in favor of the home team. Nowadays, with all the technology, it is harder to be wrong.
Like most protests in sports, this will probably go nowhere.
