schadenfreude - noun: a feeling of enjoyment that comes from seeing or hearing about the troubles of other people
Behind 22 points from Jordan Crawford, the Wizards dealt a surprising loss to the Heat, 105-101, at the Verizon Center. LeBron James triple-doubled for the first time this season with 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists, but missed a potentially game-winning 3-pointer with 18 seconds left in the game, and a would-be game-tying 3-pointer with four seconds on the clock.
HAAAAA ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaaa.
Oh man, that felt good. Anyway, as I was saying. I hate when the Celtics give up big leads. Huh? You want to tell me something else?
Toney Douglas had a season-high 22 points and Greg Smith added a career-best 21 to help the Houston Rockets overcome a tough outing by James Harden and rally for a 107-105 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night. The Lakers had a 13-point lead with less than 10 minutes to go. But Houston used two big runs, including a 9-2 spurt capped by a 3-pointer from Douglas to take its first lead of the game—100-99—with about 2 1/2 minutes left.

Thank you NBA. It has been a hard week and I needed that.
