Yesterday’s basketball action featured a little bit of everything from marquee names like Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin to high-stakes college hoops, with plenty of awesome sneakers along the way.
On the NBA forefront, the Los Angeles Clippers absolutely dominated the Philadelphia 76ers in a 123-78 blowout that featured Chris Paul’s return to action. Elsewhere, Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers gave Memphis the business with a 91-83 win. Kyrie was one of the night’s best performers with 28 points and a handful of rebounds and assists in a slick Nike Zoom HyperRev PE that you’ll have to hit the jump to see in full.
In yesterday’s NCAA men’s Top 25 match-ups, the unranked St. John’s Red Storm dealt No. 12 Creighton a 70-65 loss. No. 2 Arizona continued to roll on with a decisive win over Oregon State, and the No. 22 Connecticut Huskies hustled up an AAC win against UCF.
The No. 1 UConn’s ladies squad had a successful outing as well, improving on perfection at 25-0 as they dropped No. 4 Louisville. From Waco, Texas, Odyssey Sims had 33 points as she led No. 7 Baylor past No. 12 Oklahoma State 81-64.
Catch up on all this and more after the jump.
