Gotta Love Steve Nash

In the playoffs last year we all saw Steve Nash try to play through a nasty gash on the bridge of his nose. The injury didn't even faze him and only the blood kept him off the court. In fact, he was the guy lifting Tony Parker off the ground after the collision. He was like Bruce Willis in the first Die Hard.

So it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that he would break off half his tooth, hand it to a trainer, and then go for 29 and 11 while leading Phoenix to a big win over Utah. I know you can't give him the MVP every year, but seriously, is anyone more valuable to their team? To their sport?

In other news, Travis Outlaw is becoming the X Factor in Portland, Sam Dalembert finally played the type of game I knew he could, Stephen Jackson continues to single-handedly determine whether the Warriors win or lose (tonight he sucked, thus they lost), and the answer to Utah's offensive woes (even though they still lost a tough one to Phoenix) is just replacing Mehmet Okur (bad shoulder) with Paul Milsap who went for over 20 and 10 as the starting center.

Not a bad night of NBA action.
