And this, my friends, is why you always stick around for the last couple minutes of that blowout.  You’ve already invested some amount of your valuable time into an awful game anyway, so why not make absolutely sure you don’t happen to miss something as spectacular as the windmill slam that Thomas Robinson threw down against the Blazers last night?  While it ultimately goes down as the most meaningless field goal (ESPN’s play-by-play actually describes it as a “layup”) of an insignificant game, it was probably the single most exciting moment of the whole damn thing.  As a matter of fact, this Thomas Robinson dunk may very well represent the climax of Sacramento’s entire season series with Portland.  Of the four games they played, not a single one was decided by fewer than 12 points.  Nope, not even the one the Blazers lost. As much as I appreciate Thomas Robinson’s garbage-time heroics, I think I speak for all NBA fans when I say I’m glad that these two teams are done playing each other for the season.  On three of the four nights that they met, no game tipped off later… meaning that Kings/Blazers was the only choice after like 11 or 12 o’clock.  Why, schedulers, WHY?!
