You're probably wondering what Carmelo Anthony is so happy about.
Well, on the surface, the above photo clearly depicts a satisfied 'Melo celebrating a made three-pointer against the Phoenix Suns. But Anthony's mirth probably also has something to do with the fact that his New York Knicks are somehow back in playoff position.
That's right; after stumbling around for half a season as a dysfunctional circus, the 15-22 Knickerbockers have a ticket to the postseason dance...for now.
Elsewhere, the Toronto Raptors improved their own postseason lot, Dwight Howard entered uncharted territory and the Dallas Mavericks did something they haven't done in three years.
Good, that means you're primed to digest Alec Burks' cameo as a No. 1 option and Tim Duncan's bizarre effect on the San Antonio Spurs' defensive performance.
All that and more awaits in Monday's NBA takeaways.
