It was all pro hoops last night as some of the league’s top teams hit the court for NBA Friday Night.
The evening’s most buzzed about match-up was the “Nickname Game” between the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets. In what can only be described as upset, it was “JJ”, not “King James”, that took control of the double-overtime game as Brooklyn picked up a 104-95 win. Joe Johnson had 32 points and 5 assists in the Nets win, while LeBron dropped 36 points but fouled out during the first OT. Players on both teams will be sporting their monikers again when they meet later this season.
Elsewhere around the league, Blake Griffin, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyrie Irving, and more had huge nights. Be sure to click through the slides to catch up on all the action you missed and find out which sneakers were worn by the night’s top performers.
