Dirk Nowitzki looked like his MVP self last night against the Hornets. He scored 25 points in what would ultimately become a Mavericks victory. After Ryan Anderson hit a three-pointer with 55.5 seconds remaining, it appeared the Mavs were out of luck with the score sitting at 100-96. A pair of threes from Mike James and Vince Carter gave the Mavs the lead, which they held on to until the end of regulation. Are the Mavericks on the rise? Grab some Dallas Mavericks Tickets for tomorrow's game against the Lakers to see if they'll keep this hot streak going.
James Harden dropped a career high 46 points against the Thunder last night. Think this awesome performance is a coincidence? Nah. Jeremy Lin also chimed in with 29. Grab some Houston Rockets tickets to support them live. There are few teams as exciting in the NBA right now.
The Spurs are back to their old tricks. With the best record in the league, a healthy big three, and only 10 out of their remaining 27 games being played away from the AT&T Center, things are looking good for San Antonio to get the number one seed. Spurs tickets are easy to come by, starting at only $25 on SeatCrunch. Be sure to catch a game before year's end if you are in the San Antonio area
Do the New York Knicks have the best three-point shooter in the league? With a 3-point percentage of 44.4, an argument can certainly be made for Steve Novak. That's why he got the nod for the NBA 3-point contest at the NBA All-Star game.
The Knicks take on the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight in what should be a decently interesting game. Tickets to the game at the Target Center start at just $19. Look for more great shooting from Steve Novak, and some stellar play from MVP candidate Carmelo Anthony.
Are you familiar with Milwaukee Bucks player Samuel Dalembert? Me neither, but he broke a pretty ridiculous record last night in Milwaukee's losing effort against the Denver Nuggets. Just look at this stat line:
35 Points. 12 Rebounds. 27 Minutes.
No other player has ever done this. Only Samuel Dalembert, whoever that is, has put together stats like that. When asked about his performance, Dalembert said "I was feeling it."
I should say so.
Will we see more of the same from the out-of-nowhere record breaker? Hopefully, but I wouldn't bet on it.
