In the Wizards locker room before the game, JaVale was getting stretched out on a trainer’s table in the middle of the room while bumping his Beats by Dre headphones. Josh Howard (inactive) sat nearby with a plate of chicken tenders and waffle fries, so JaVale used one of those Mister Fantastic arms to swipe a fry. That led to a debate between JaVale and a team employee about whether the fries were cooked in lard or, as JaVale put it, “meat juice.” … The Cavs are just as bad as the Wizards on the road, and they don’t even have a John Wall (or McGee, or Nick Young) to look forward to building around. Last night in New Jersey, the Cavs were trying to avoid their 21st straight loss away from The Q, but Brook Lopez got in the way … Tied up with seven seconds left, the Nets had the ball. The last time we saw them try a game-winning play, Devin Harris and Jordan Farmar combined to make a mess out of a possession in a loss to Dallas. This time Avery Johnson ignored the complicated stuff and just went to his big man. Lopez (28 pts) got the ball in the post, turned around his left shoulder and hit a short jumper in the lane for the win … Rudy Gay‘s game-winning buzzer-beater last night looked exactly like the one he hit in Miami earlier this season — a full-extension fadeaway going toward the baseline while running to his right — except this one was in Toronto, and the role of LeBron was played by Julian Wright. And that’s why Rudy (21 pts) won’t get nearly as much attention this time … Other stat lines from Monday: Tyreke Evans posted 26 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists to lead Sacramento past Portland; Kurt Thomas had a 1994 flashback and dropped 22 points, 9 rebounds and 5 dimes in Chicago’s win over Milwaukee; Tracy McGrady went for 20 points, 7 boards and 5 dimes as Detroit upset Orlando; Thaddeus Young‘s 24 points, 7 boards, 5 assists and 2 steals helped Philadelphia knock off Phoenix; Tony Parker had 18 points and 11 assists in San Antonio’s win over Golden State; and Kevin Martin scored 34 to lead Houston past Minnesota … We’re out like meat juice …
