Duncan led the Spurs to a 2OT victory over the Wizards.

Wednesday's Headlines:

  • The Lakers dressed 8 players, 2 got injured and 2 fouled out, so the NBA rule is that the last person to foul out stays in the game and every time he fouls there after is a personal foul and a technical.  After being up by 30 at one point, the Lakers pulled it out with only "4 players" beating the Cavs on their home floor with Kyrie never touching the court in the fourth quarter...
  • Blake Griffin and LeBron James put on a show in Hollywood throwing slam after slam, but in the end James got the victory despite Blake's 43 point performance.
  • Tim Duncan turned back time with his double overtime performance without his wing-man Tony Parker, who got injured in the first half and did not return.

  1. John Wall: John Wall makes it on this list again this week putting on yet another great show in Washington.  He dropped 14 points in the first quarter and came up big in the first overtime stealing the in-bounds pass from Duncan and making a layup wot send the game into double OT.  However, Wall's performance wasn't enough as he finished with 29 points, 9 assists, and 4 steals (49 FanEx points) in a double overtime lose to the Spurs.
