10 Takeaways from Sunday Night's Intense NBA Action

Sunday's full slate of NBA games gave you more fast-paced action than you could have gotten from the Daytona 500 and more star power than you could have hoped to get at the Oscars.

It started off with the Los Angeles Lakers showing us something from the team that everybody originally figured would work their way into the NBA Finals, and finished with the Oklahoma City Thunder reminding us all why it's nearly a foregone conclusion that they'll be able to make their way back into the Finals.

Of course, along the way there was a look at the San Antonio Spurs, who might have an issue with my comments about the Thunder making it back to the Finals, and the Miami Heat, who scoff at any of the other teams thinking they've got a shot at knocking them off the pedestal.

There were also Rookie of the Year candidates on the schedule, as well as last year's Rookie of the Year Award winner, and a look at the Knicks, Nets, Grizzlies and Warriors along the way.

If you missed even a minute of the action, I'll give you a rundown of what we learned and can take away from the day's huge games.
