    With Astros streaking, Rockets sweet-stroking, Texans have a
    tough act to follow in 2015.

    A good day for Houston! Astros are 25-13 ... this matches the
    quickest they've ever reached 25 wins (also got there in 38
    games in 1998)

    All the credit to # Rockets . Came back from the dead. Don't
    think they beat GS. But I didn't think they'd do this either.

    ATL is basically just cursed. Crazy a city that big only has 1 title. As for Charlotte (2,380,314), that's the same size as:

    2,348,247 - Portland Oregon
    2,321,418 - Orlando
    2,244,397 - Sacramento
    2,069,681 - Las Vegas

    of those, only Portland has a title (Trail Blazers in 1977), so I guess they could talk smack, but I doubt people in North Carolina care as they have been spoiled with well more than their fair share of titles between Duke and UNC

    in 150 combined seasons of the Hawks/Braves/Falcons playing in ATL, they have only brought home one title (the Braves, two decades ago). and it's 170 combined seasons if you include the NHL

    thats crazy, I didn't realize how awful ATL was in sports. ATL is the 9th biggest metro area in the US, you'd think they'd have a lot more titles. Look at the all the other big cities. The only other big city as bad as ATL in sports is Phoenix, but they've only had 90 combined seasons of NFL/NBA/MLB (110 if include NHL) and aren't as big a city as ATL (4,489,109 to 5,614,323 population)

    Biggest cities in the US:

    #1 NYC - 57 titles (35 MLB/2 NBA/9 NFL/11 NHL)
    #2 LA - 22 titles (6 MLB/11 NBA/2 NFL/3 NHL)
    #3 Chicago - 27 titles (5 MLB/6 NBA/11 NFL/5 NHL)
    #4 Dallas - 8 titles (1 NBA/6 NFL/1 NHL)
    #5 Houston - 4 titles (2 NBA/2 NFL)
    #6 Philadelphia - 16 titles (7 MLB/3 NBA/4 NFL/2 NHL)
    #7 Washington - 7 titles (1 MLB/1 NBA/5 NFL)
    #8 Miami - 7 titles (2 MLB/3 NBA/2 NFL)
    #9 Atlanta - 1 title <------------WTF?!?!?!

    4.29 million to 4.73 million population:
    #10 Boston - 36 titles (9 MLB/17 NBA/4 NFL/6 NHL)
    #11 San Fran/Oakland - 16 titles (7 MLB/2 NBA/7 NFL)
    #12 Phoenix - 1 title
    #13 Detriot - 22 titles (4 MLB/3 NBA/4 NFL/11 NHL)

    2.75 million to 3.67 million population:
    #14 Seattle 2 titles (1 NBA/1 NFL)
    #15 Minneapolis - 7 titles (2 MLB/5 NBA)
    #16 San Diego - 1 title
    #17 Tampa - 2 titles (1 NFL/1 NHL)
    #18 Saint Louis - 13 titles (11 MLB/1 NBA/1 NFL)
    #19 Baltimore - 9 titles (3 MLB/1 NBA/5 NFL)
    #20 Denver - 4 titles (2 NFL/2 NHL)

    some from the less than 2.38 million population cities:
    Pittsburgh - 14 titles (5 MLB/6 NFL/3 NHL)
    Green Bay - 13 titles (all NFL)
    San Antonio - 5 titles (all NBA)
    Cincinnati - 5 titles (all MLB)
    Cleveland - 12 titles (2 MLB, 10 NFL)

    Duke sells much more than Wisconsin, so Duke winning was better for American companies and the Americans they employ and their families and children

    everyone blaming the refs instead of congratulating Duke

    NCAA Basketabll Refs @ NCAABballRef
    25m
    So Duke won by 5 points. These no calls lead to 5 Duke Points.
    Refs were the deciding factor in this game!

    Some # Duke IT nerd had to hack into the replay system and
    alter that video. No other explanation for the non-reversal of out
    of bounds call

    Tyson @ EatPorkPlease
    2h
    Wow 2 terribly blown calls. Foot on end line and Duke touched
    that ball

    Matt Christian @ mattycash5
    2h
    That duke players foot was on the line and wasn't called. It
    changed the whole game

    Pete Pranica @ PetePranica
    2h
    Several million people just saw the ball was off Duke . Except the
    officials, who also missed Duke stepping out of bounds .
    #atrocious

    Derek Schultz @ Schultz1260

    Great game, but I'm going to have a really hard time swallowing
    that out - of - bounds call. Duke three on extra possession. Huge
    swing.

    Don Wadewitz @ DonWadewitz
    2h
    A classic game until refs missed Duke stepping out of bounds
    resulting in 3 and then ball going off their fingers resulting in 3
    more. Awful
