Saturday night's NBA action included a handful of blowout games, all of which featured an endless array of highlights, and some interesting tidbits to think about for the next few nights, until something else comes along to contradict that new thought.

It was a strange night for gamblers, as favorites went down left and right.

Atlanta was favored by three points but lost by 10 to the Washington Wizards, the Detroit Pistons were favored by two points but lost by three to the Jazz, Chicago was favored by 8.5 points but lost by 16 to the Suns, Memphis was favored by a point but lost by 21 points to the Dallas Mavericks, and the Los Angeles Clippers were favored by 13 points but ended their afternoon losing by three to the Magic.

Let's take a look at just what did happen Saturday night and figure out what we should be able to take away from this weird day of basketball.
