Over the last week of action, there hasn’t been any shortage of high-output offense in the NBA, and last night was no different. Golden State’s Stephen Curry lit up the Portland Trail Blazers with 38 points to lead the day in scoring, and chipped in another 8 assists and 7 boards. Last week, Kevin Durant tweeted that Curry is the “best shooter to ever play.” With so many greats throughout history, we can’t help but think KD may have overlooked at least a few guys, but there’s no doubt that Curry can get it done consistently.

From New Orleans, the Pelicans picked up a win over Orlando on the back of a huge 22 point, 19 rebound double-double from Anthony Davis. Phoenix’s Markieff Morris also had a double-double with 27 points and 15 rebounds in the Suns win over Cleveland. That’s just the tip of the iceberg of the night’s pro hoops, so click through to catch up on the shoes that stole the show.

It’s no Super Bowl, but the Team Rice vs. Team Sanders Pro Bowl provided plenty of entertainment for pigskin fans. Team Rice won after a late TD from Alex Smith, but Dez Bryant of Team Sanders had the best cleats of the game with a pair of Air Jordan Six Rings PEs. Check them out in all their glory after the jump.
