The coaches and the players have struck a deal - keep the complaints to the officials to a minimum (rather than 0) and they won't get benched for losing their cool.

Check out the latest Daily Clipper for more news stories from around the web. I know that I titled a Daily Clipper "Jamal Crawford Edition" earlier this month, but I felt he deserved another shout out for his 4th quarter display last night. He managed to go from somewhat disastrous to the best game he has played in weeks and it was wonderful. Anyway, lets get started with these links.
