Videos: Tuesday’s Top 25 Plays

Mahimi, Ilyasova, DeRozan, Boozer and more…


Just like that, the NBA returned last night, going full throttle with nine games and countless highlights. We were quickly reminded that All-Star Weekend was a transient, if not somewhat artificial, lovey-dovey period between players on opposing teams, and with the Playoffs starting exactly two months from yesterday, guys are officially in next-level mode, with increased competitiveness, defensive focus and desire to win. We had New Jersey shock Dallas behind Brook Lopez’s 38, DeMarcus Cousins with a solid 22 points and 18 rebounds, Ersan Ilyasova with the game-winner, Philly snapping its five-game skid with a complete trashing of Detroit and much, much more. Tonight, we’re treated to 12 games, including Thunder-Sixers, Cavs-Knicks, Lakers-TWolves and Bulls-Spurs. All-Star was fun, but there’s nothing like the last stretch of the NBA season. Except for the Playoffs, that is. So, enjoy tonight’s games, but before you move forward, take a step back and relive the best of the best from Tuesday.Eldon Khorshidi

    Al Jefferson has to be the worse defender in the L. Looks like he’s not even trying out there and when he does get beat he just turns around and walks toward the basket. (see I. Thomas and Cousins)

    @Niio: Agreed, although the Isaiah one seemed to get him on that move.. And Cousins is scary good when he gets goin, dang..
