6 Takeaways from Saturday Night's Rousing NBA Action
Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Only six games graced the Saturday night NBA schedule, but don't make the mistake of assuming a lack of quantity meant the quality was wanting too.

The Boston Celtics finally cut down a giant that had been stepping on them all year, Spencer Hawes did his best Hakeem Olajuwon impression, and Tim Duncan continued his ongoing refusal to age, much to the dismay of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Besides all that, the Washington Wizards put together such a dynamic offensive performance that they set their own (unofficial) franchise record by appearing in two takeaway slides. That's pretty good for a lottery team, right?

Among playoff hopefuls, the Utah Jazz refused to go quietly, taking advantage of a dog-tired Memphis Grizzlies team to hang onto their fraying playoff dreams.

There were storylines galore as the league got to work on its weekend, and each of them has been handily compiled into digestible bites in the following slideshow. There are pictures and words and everything! In advance, you're welcome.
