11 Takeaways from Wednesday Night's NBA Action

LeBron James went home, Jason Kidd stooped to a new low and the Los Angeles Clippers got a real scare when Chris Paul went down with a hamstring injury. If Wednesday night's NBA action stopped there, it still would have been a pretty big night in the Association.

But there was more.

The Chicago Bulls went back to their roots, relying on dogged defense and a collective effort to put a vintage beating on a division rival. Plus, the Phoenix Suns put a stop to the Portland Trail Blazers' impressive streak. Not to be outdone, the Oklahoma City Thunder got a big night from an unlikely source in ending the San Antonio Spurs' 11-game run.

Elsewhere, the Minnesota Timberwolves faced a familiar problem, Nikola Vucevic gave the Philadelphia 76ers an unpleasant reminder, and the Houston Rockets notched a big win with an even bigger performance from their bench.

Consider these takeaways your NBA Thanksgiving appetizer. Bon appetit!
