Saturday night's NBA slate came on the heels of a day full of collegiate madness, but don't assume that the amateurs have the monopoly on riveting finishes and surprising performances. The professionals put together a night of wild action themselves.
Carmelo Anthony continued his impressive post-injury run, leading the New York Knicks to a big win in advance of a particularly rough patch of their schedule.
And a couple of unlikely stars stepped up for the Memphis Grizzlies and Detroit Pistons in two of the night's closest finishes.
Plus, Jordan Crawford went a little nutty, and Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel drew up a phenomenal final play that could only have been better if Paul George had finished it off.
The NBA may not own the trademark on madness, but Saturday's games featured enough wild action to satisfy even the most crazed hoop fan.
