Fans without a calendar in front of them might have assumed Wednesday night’s NBA game at Oracle Arena was a preseason contest.
That’s partly because of the Golden State Warriors absolutely routing the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals. The Warriors led by 28 points at halftime and went on to win 136-100 — the second-largest margin of victory ever in a playoff game — to take a 2-0 series lead.
As such, there wasn’t much basketball to discuss. So the ESPN broadcast crew of Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson started chatting about, well, other things.
Jackson relayed a story about how the guy he went to dinner with the previous night didn’t share his dessert with him. That led to Van Gundy taking a savage shot at Jackson’s weight.
But this tale has a happy ending. Apparently someone heard the crew discussing desserts and actually brought Jackson a brownie, which Van Gundy happily displayed to the national television audience.
This whole exchange took place during the second quarter, which pretty much sums up the action on the court. The Spurs will seek sweet revenge Saturday when they return home for Game 3, but if you ask us, they look pretty much cooked.
