Even though only one playoff spot remains available, Sunday's frantic NBA action made it seem as though every postseason berth was still up for grabs.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat settled the score with the ultra-physical Chicago Bulls, James Harden propelled the Houston Rockets into the sixth seed out West, and the New York Knicks won a game against the Indiana Pacers that could pay massive dividends over the season's final week.
Plus, Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks each enjoyed historical milestones—although only one of them involved a hurried postgame shave.
Oh, and Steve Blake improbably led the Los Angeles Lakers to their first win of the post-Kobe Bryant era, beating the San Antonio Spurs and putting the Lakers on the brink of completing a stunning resurrection.
Buckle up, because it was anything but a lazy Sunday in the NBA.
