10 Takeaways for Friday Night's NBA Action
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

It was a night of reunions in the NBA

LeBron James met up with the Dallas Mavericks, rekindling memories of that ill-fated 2011 NBA Finals. Lou Williams made his season debut for the Atlanta Hawks against his old team. Corey Brewer suited up against the Denver Nuggets in a losing effort for the Minnesota Timberwolves. 

Plus, brothers got to play against each other with a surprising amount of frequency. 

Markieff and Marcus Morris always get to play with each other, but Friday night featured Pau and Marc Gasol, Cody and Tyler Zeller and Miles and Mason Plumlee all squaring off. It was the first time in NBA history we've had that many sibling rivalries surface during the same day.

Weird, right? 

The reunions are notable, but there were also quite a few interesting developments during the 11-game slate. 

Starting with the undefeated Indiana Pacers, let's run through the 10 biggest takeaways from a night full of close games and plenty of entertaining action. Apologies go out to the Portland Trail Blazers, who don't earn a featured spot but deserve a shout-out for continuing to look like a playoff team while beating down the Boston Celtics.
