In his seventh season in the NBA, Joakim Noah is beginning to step into elite territory. He’s been selected as an All-Star for the second straight year, and last night, Noah recorded the fourth triple-double of his career during Chicago’s routing of the Atlanta Hawks. Noah was strong on both ends of the court, with 19 points, 16 rebounds, 11 assists, and 3 blocks for good measure in the adidas adipure Crazyghost.
Around the league, LeBron James and Kevin Durant both had outstanding nights, with the King slightly edging KD in scoring 37-36. In Miami’s win over the Suns, Chris Bosh also played an important role with 21 points and 8 boards in a sleek red Nike Air Max Hyperposite PE.
On the men’s college hardwood, No. 3 Florida cruised to a win over Tennessee thanks to a strong showing from Scottie Wilbekin, who pulled out the heavily-hyped “Gamma Blue” Air Jordan XI. No. 15 Michigan and No. 22 Ohio State battled it out, with the Wolverines coming away with a 70-60 win in the end.
All this and more after the break.
