Biggest Takeaways from Thursday Night's NBA Action
Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Thursday's schedule was a light one in the NBA. There were just three games on the schedule, two of which filled time on TNT.

Not that there wasn't still occasion enough for strange occurrences. One player registered a plus-40 in the box score, while another nearly tallied a quadruple-double with turnovers. One team couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with a basketball, while another couldn't help but tally an assist every time the rock went through the hoop.

And, somehow, Kevin Durant and LeBron James, both in action on this night, played brilliantly, but weren't so near the headlines as their respective performances might suggest they should be.

Oh, and Charles Barkley wore a snapback—a New York Knicks snapback, no less (h/t CJ Fogler).

Not even the Mayans could've predicted all of this taking place on such a light night. Then again, it seems as though they didn't do so well figuring out when the world would end, either.
