7 Takeaways from Saturday Night's Out-of-Hand NBA Action
USA TODAY Sports

Things got ugly during a seven-game, blowout-heavy slate of NBA action on Saturday night. Unless, of course, you were a fan of the teams on the winning end of some pretty lopsided scores.

If that's the case, there's an equal chance that you'll find some real beauty in these double-digit margins.

Five of Saturday night's seven games were decided by at least 13 points, and within those easy victories (or crushing defeats, depending on your perspective), there were some pretty spectacular performances.

LeBron James tossed up a casual triple-double, Danny Granger returned to an Indiana Pacers team playing all-time great D and JaVale McGee hammered home a whopping seven dunks.

In a pair of closer games, the Milwaukee Bucks got to see the unfavorable comparison between new teammates J.J. Redick and Monta Ellis up close, and the Washington Wizards put together a fantastic team effort to ground the Houston Rockets.

On the whole, Saturday night's games had a little something for everybody. Well, almost everybody. Fans of the Detroit Pistons are advised to move along. There's nothing to see here.
