Raise your hand if you thought Monday's NBA action would feature a backdoor lob to Kyle Korver in crunch time, a ridiculously easy win by the Phoenix Suns or a killer crossover from Tim Duncan.
Seeing no hands, I'll continue.
Monday's busy slate featured those surprising moments and many more. On the predictable side of things, the New York Knicks struggled mightily without their biggest star, the Brooklyn Nets settled into a disturbing groove and Dirk Nowitzki hit enough jumpers to make history.
As the old saying goes: Expect the unexpected. Although, I guess the lesson here is that you should also expect the expected. Sometimes, the NBA is confusing.
These takeaways should help you sort it out.
