LOS ANGELES -- More than 100 minor earthquakes have rattled Southern California since last night. The largest -- measured as a magnitude 5.7 quake -- shook my entire hotel room around 9:30 last night. And I'm on the 10th floor. It was a pretty interesting experience for this East Coast lifer.

These smaller quakes could last for a year, according to the Los Angeles Times, and experts believe all the quakes are aftershocks from April's 7.2 magnitude Mexicali quake, which killed two people and caused more than $90 million in damage on the California side of the border.

Red Auerbach used to heat up the old Boston Garden to an unbearable temperature for opponents, but I think this tops it in terms of making a non-Californian a bit uncomfortable. Homecourt advantage, indeed.
