The night of Saturday, Jan. 18 had a few surprises in store for NBA fans.
The two conference leaders (Portland Trail Blazers and Indiana Pacers) faced what looked to be stiff challenges from the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers. But those marquee matchups turned into comfortable wins for Portland and Indiana.
Indiana's Paul George greeted Lob City by landing the dunk of the season.
Instead, the game of the night happened in Charlotte, where the Bobcats gave the defending world champion Miami Heat all they could handle before eventually succumbing in overtime.
