Wednesday's blockbuster NBA action kicked off with a fantastic, competitive, controversial matchup between the Eastern Conference's two best teams.
But the terrific tilt between the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat was just the beginning.
Following the evening's marquee engagement, we saw game-winning shots, a reshuffling of the league's point guard hierarchy and a classic performance from a beloved veteran who almost called it quits a few months ago.
Plus, Andrea Bargnani did something that would get most middle school hoopers immediately benched. Trust me, you're going to want to see Bargs' epic, inexplicable brain fart. It's an all-timer.
Perhaps best of all, a brilliant talent made a stunningly quick recovery from an injury that threatened to derail his phenomenal season.
If you love NBA basketball, you picked a great night to spend in front of the television. Don't worry, though; if you missed out on any of the action, we've got you covered with takeaways from Wednesday's games.
