By now, you’ve probably got your March Madness bracket squared away, but you’ll have to wait until Thursday for the action to tip off. In the meantime, St. Patrick’s Day delivered plenty of hoops action on the NBA hardwood, including big numbers and even better sneakers from some of the game’s top stars.

From Indiana, Paul George led the Pacers to a 99-90 win over Philadelphia, which marked the 76ers’ 21st consecutive loss and their worst losing streak in franchise history. George had 24 points and 8 rebounds in the Saint Paddy’s-appropriate Sole Collector version of the Nike Zoom Flight The Glove. Unfortunately, this limited colorway has long since disappeared from retailers, but you can pick up other styles of The Glove or enjoy the on-court shots after the jump.

Around the league, Kevin Durant, Jeremy Lin, Joe Johnson, and Kenneth Faried all had stellar nights in kicks you won’t want to miss, so be sure to check out the gallery above for the complete rundown.
