It was another exciting night of NBA action which featured LeBron James first game winner since arriving in South Beach and an epic comeback by the Los Angeles Lakers. We had a team snap a streak on Wednesday, as the Minnesota Timberwolves mercifully ended their six game skid, but it came at hands of the Washington Wizards, who themselves are still trying to find their footing. From players on the court to those off it, Wednesday was jam packed with basketball action and frankly, we don’t know where to start:
- The Minnesota Timberwolves were riding a six game losing streak into their matchup against the Washington Wizards. However, Ricky Rubio and company were able to finally get something going as they toppled John Wall and the Wizards 87-82 at home.
- The Boston Celtics picked up a win over the Indiana Pacers, but most of the team’s attention is still off the court where Rajon Rondo is trying to bounce back from tearing his ACL back in January. One question surrounds the growth of Avery Bradley, and how a Rondo return next season effects said growth. Mike Cerra from Hardwood Houdini breaks it all down.
- Kyrie Irving wasn’t himself for the first three quarters of the Cavaliers game against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. But Irving came around in the last 12 minutes of the game and was his usual cold-blooded self in helping Cleveland pick up a big win over the Jazz.
- Perhaps the biggest story of the night was LeBron James drilling a game winning shot to boost the Miami Heat to their 16th straight win. James had never hit a game winner with the Heat but he picked an ideal time to pick up his first as the Heat are going to try for 17 straight wins when they take on the Sixers on Friday.
- While Heat fans are celebrating, Chicago Bulls fans are growing impatient when it comes to the return of their golden child Derrick Rose. King James Gospel tells us that Rose’s return may be close as the former MVP has been listed as “day-to-day” in the Bulls injury report.
