    I'll blog about this more tomorrow, but you actually can sprain and/or strain your back. Plus, the Jazz officially listed Okur as having a "back sprain" - yes, that is sprain with a "p," not a "t."

    Also, if I wrote that Kirilenko sprained his calf - which I don't recall doing and can't find in the archives - then it was a typo.

    Jody, you need to learn the difference between a sprain and a strain. Okur didn't have a back sprain, it is a strain. A sprain is something you do to ligaments when they are twisted or wrenched. A strain is something you can do to muscles. This is the second time in the last week in one of your articles you had this wrong as Kirilenko didn't sprain his calf the other night, he strained it.

    Wish Sloan had made Memo drive for the basket over the last five years. But, even though he's developing this skill very late in his career, better late than never. He's going to get to the foul line a lot during the playoffs if he continues this.
