    What a crazy game. I've never had floor seats until today and I chose a great day to go with my dad as a Christmas gift. Little did I know I would sit next to Craig Sager, one of the nicest and most patient guys ever. I'll run through some of what I saw in chronological order. Pics/videos will be below.

    1) An hour before the game, Dwight and Bull were having free throw contests, then moved to three point contests (right handed and left handed). Video below:

    2) Rockets started doing some crazy warm-up dunks. Canaan has some insane hops and hands to do the dunk in the video. The angle kind of sucks because everybody was in the way, but they were some pretty nice dunks. Video below:

    3) Craig Sager! THE man. We chatted it up, he said he had a good Christmas and that it was still going on or something, but everybody kept going to him for pictures and shouting his name. He would happily take photos and acknowledge the people shouting at him. He saw that I had a sign that read, "KENNY WON THE RACE" and thought it was funny. He personally went and grabbed a camera man to get the sign on Inside the NBA. Apparently Kenny was loving it and Shaq thought Kenny rigged it lol. I ended up getting a picture with Craig and he signed the poster. Pics below:

    4) What a great game. We came back down and fought hard on defense while Harden got some touchy calls to get to the line. Dwight was struggling and got into early foul trouble but D-mo came in and stepped up big time! Aaron Brooks did all right but I'm worried about his injury. He was hobbling pretty bad. Towards the end of the game when things were over, McHale said something to Jeremy and Jeremy reacted pretty negatively and walked away but McHale grabbed him back and patted him on the head and told him is having more trust and faith in Jeremy since he's been playing very well this something. It was pretty touching to see them grow like that. I think McHale season. I have to give major props to McHale for trying to help Jeremy grow as a player. I think their relationship will improve as long as they both listen to each other. Anyways, pics and video below. Bev had some chrome dress shoes on.
