Originally posted by shawnpatrickI can't remember seeing a beating like this in the NBA. 7 points in 15 minutes of playing in the NBA?
According to wikipedia, 2 is the least amount of points scored in a quarter. It happened twice:
2 by the Dallas Mavericks at the Los Angeles Lakers on April 6, 1997 (3rd quarter)
The Mavs managed to "only" lose that game by seven points, 87-80; they were up 51-37 at halftime. It was Dallas' 11th straight loss, and they'd finish 24-58. This was L.A.'s first year with Shaquille O'Neal; they'd finish 56-26 and advance to the second round of the playoffs.
2 by the Golden State Warriors vs. the Toronto Raptors on February 8, 2004 (4th quarter)
The Wsrriors only lostthat game by three, 84-81-- and it went into overtime. Up 73-57 going into the fourth, the Warriors were outscored 18-2 in the final period of regulation. They scored four more points in the 5-minute overtime period than they did the entire 12-minute fourth quarter.
The Warriors' Clifford Robinson played all but one minute of the game, finishing with 10 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and a block (but 6 turnovers), and Vince Carter led the Raptors with 22 points.
Toronto finished 33-49; Golden State 37-45.

I thought that the NBA nixed the idea of a team in Vegas, since the gambling influence would be too strong. Also, a compulsive gambler like Jordan might explode in such constant exposure to the casinos.
