Haha Billups refuses to stop leaning against the scorer’s table like “you guys swim in your own mess” he ain’t calling timeout for nothing. He, and Olshey of course, gonna look real bad if he can’t even match the production of the coach who was supposedly the problem – 12:07 AM

Billups got an easy cut and score from Zubac, and Billups has seen enough.
