We had a Thursday Night in the NBA with three games on the schedule. The Miami Heat defeated the Los Angeles Clipeprs 102-97 behind a masterful 29 points from Dwyane Wade as well as 18 supportive points from LeBron James. Ty Lawson banked in a clutch three-pointer and scored 23 points to lead Denver to their first win of the season. Steve Blake spoiled Dwight Howard’s first game against his former team when he hit a three-pointer with 1.3 seconds left to give the Lakers a 99-98 win.

NFL Thursday Night Action was also on the schedule as the Minnesota Vikings were able to dispose of the Washington Redskins 34-27. Adrian Peterson had two rushing touchdowns in the victory in a matchup of two pretty bad teams. There was also some College Football action as well last night. Bryce Petty had 5 total touchdowns as Baylor routed Oklahoma 41-12. These are The Shoes That Won Last Night.
