I'm still trying to figure out why Knicks forward Jared Jeffries decided to pass the ball (leading to a steal by Kevin Garnett) instead of going up for a two-foot shot at the end of last night's Game 2 loss to the Celtics. Apparently, Jeffries realized he should've shot the ball, too. The defeat took away from a memorable performance by Carmelo Anthony who scored 42 points and grabbed 17 rebounds (all can be seen here) after shooting 5 for 18 in Game 1.

Two Timer!
OK, the headline is a little misleading. Last Friday, Hot Clicks brought you video of singer Nicki Minaj giving the Hornets guard Chris Paul a lap dance during a recent concert. Minaj was at it again last night but this time, the recipient of the intimate act was Steve Nash, who couldn't have looked more uncomfortable.
Second Children Suck, I Guess
Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis recently missed a start so he could be with his wife for the birth of their daughter. This really seemed to bother one Dallas Observer writer, who actually wrote, "If it was a first child, maybe. But a second child causing a player to miss a game? Ludicrous."
