Orlando takes control in OT and beats the Hornets to even the series 1-1.

I heard that fans behind the baskets were talking to each other....ACROSS THE COURT!

There were also reports of mouse farts, ants walking, and somesuch.

Mashburn remains in Charlotte for treatment
Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Jamal Mashburn will remain in Charlotte to be treated for anemia and vitamin deficiency while his Charlotte Hornets teammates play Game 3 in their playoff series against the Orlando Magic.

The Hornets practiced in Charlotte on Friday, then boarded a plane for Orlando without their leading scorer. The best-of-five series is tied 1-1, and Game 3 is Saturday.

Charlotte has not ruled out the possibility of Mashburn playing in Game 4 on Tuesday.

"I talked to him yesterday and he's still a little lightheaded and weak," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "So we'll just plan that day-to-day. I'll give him a call over the weekend and see how he is feeling.

"If he's feeling fine, then he'll come down and play Tuesday. If not, we'll have to do without him."

Mashburn, who averages 21.5 points, has played only 10 minutes in the series. He vomited in the first quarter of Game 1 on Saturday and left the game with what was believed to be a virus.

He was hospitalized overnight, checked himself out on Sunday, and was with the team for shooting and stretching on Monday. But he began to feel bad again on Tuesday, hours before Game 2, and was sent back to the hospital.

That's when the anemia and B-12 deficiency was discovered, and he was held two nights for treatment.

Look at T-Mac!

<< Look at T-Mac! >>

Well, yeah if you want to see something impressive. Its just that every time I see Traylor I remember that Milwaukee swapped him to us for Dirk. Just look at him.

04-27-2002, 02:30 PM
Ah, yes. Traylor for Dirk. Brilliant i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

I wonder how the Bucks sleep at night knowing they could have had Dirk??


How sad for them, but damn great for us! i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

I don't feel sorry for the Bucks....I'm to giddy about Dirk to worry about it....i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

I doubt the Bucks would have picked Dirk had they not been picking for the Mavs though.

<< I doubt the Bucks would have picked Dirk had they not been picking for the Mavs though. >>

Probably not, but that can't make it any better. Not when they drafted Dirk to trade for Traylor and left Pierce on the board. And now Dirk and Pierce are both turning into superstars.

definitely...not taking Pierce or Dirk has to be killing their fans.
