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.

Yep. I saw the commercials. SlamBall will soon return to The New TNN. What killed off SlamBall's first run? Lack of ratings? Lack of interest? If so, why revive it? And is anyone actually gonna watch it again?
