Friday night in the NBA featured a full slate of games including LeBron doing LeBron things at Madison Square Garden, a Zach Randolph game-winner against Portland, and a phenomenal alley-oop by Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan.

Our boy Marcelo wasn’t the only 30+ player who had a rough go of it this week. Paul Pierce got dunked on by Jeff Green on Monday and then had his ankles turned into sawdust on Thursday night in Phoenix:
Hey Gordon, ‘White Men Can’t Jump.’ Ever heard of it? It’s a classic:
The chemistry in Sacramento is electric right now.
