Continuing the Entourage buzz this week is another cool feature from Complex as they interviewed Doug Ellin on 8 must-see episodes (1 from each season) that you should re-watch before you see the movie on Thursday.
Among them was Eminem’s memorable cameo in the Season 7 finale when he punched a drugged out Vinny Chase during the latter’s rock bottom freefall. How did that all come about? Here it is from Doug himself:
“I got some flack for this season, but I enjoyed it. It was a thrill to have [Eminem] on the show, he actually put some lyrics about the show in one of his songs about Entourage and Johnny Drama. Paul Rosenberg called me and said Eminem would love to be on the show, you just need to give him an idea that he likes. You get a little nervous when you have to get on the phone with [someone like] Eminem, I don’t know what he is or isn’t going to like. So I said, ‘What if Vince gets drunk and says something to you that you don’t like and you punch him in the face?’ And he goes, ‘I love that.'”
Undermanned and the backup, backup point guard has a career night and game-winning 3 for a W. E’Twaun Moore follows in the steps of DJ Augustin, Nate Robinson, and John Lucas III with this random breakout game — 19 points, a career high, and 9/10 shooting. The play Thibs drew up proved to be perfect with 4 seconds left as he used Pau as a decoy down low to feed the hot hand. The ensuing Pau/E’Twaun hug was heartwarming too. #SeeRed
Welcome back, Craig Sager as well! I know you were probably planning on talking to Russell Westbrook (who put up a ho-hum 40, 8, and 7) but no, you’re post-game interview is with E’Twaun Moore.
Damian Lillard and Russell Westbrook each went for 40 tonite but it was Lillard who sent the game into overtime with the same play as last year. Seriously. Watch the highlight, then the split-screen below.

That’s easier for me to say since I’m a Bulls fan, admittedly, because the Knicks-Bulls were without Melo and D. Rose, but Jimmy Butler put in a career-high 35 points for a Bulls win that went down to the wire.
Ah, I quickly digressed. That’s probably a personal record for how fast I brought up the Bulls. But back to the headline at hand…
The most entertaining game of the night was the nightcap: Oklahoma City at Golden State. The star power was on full display as Kevin Durant had 30 points at halftime but had to leave the game just before it after spraining his right ankle. It looks like it’s mild though and Durant is confident it’s not a long-term injury.
So providing the show for the entire game were the teams’ all-star point guards. Russell Westbrook and Steph Curry combined for 67 points and 15 assists with a flurry of signature moves and ridiculous baskets along the way.
Westbrook’s pull-up mid-range jumper was pure tonight and Steph Curry’s treys were all equally as pretty. That one where he takes the handoff from Iggy in transition was bonkers.
The Warriors held on to win, 114-109, with Curry putting in 34 points, 7 rebounds, 9 assists, and 4 steals. As J.E. Skeets would say, “Whoa Boy!”
