The NBA is in a conundrum tonight.
Watch the Philadelphia 76ers calmly score on their own basket.
Wayne Ellington got bailed out after picking up his dribble and Jordan Clarkson hit the go-ahead bucket with 0.7 seconds left.
Kevin Love aggravated a nagging back injury and was forced to leave the game. However, he's expected to return Thursday against Miami.
LeBron James started off strong on Sunday against the Philadelphia 76ers with a pair of monster jams on back-to-back possessions.
Nerlens Noel is one of the most disruptive rookie defenders of all-time, and he just dropped 30 points on arguably the league's most talented frontcourt. Still don't think the future is bright for the Philadelphia 76ers?
When it comes to the Philadelphia 76ers' all-time greats, there's Spencer Hawes, and then there's everybody else.
Joel Embiid could be the piece that eventually propels the improving Philadelphia 76ers to respectability. It seems all but set in stone, though, that we won't get the chance to find out until next season.
The Philadelphia 76ers were favored for the first time all season against the New York Knicks, and lived up to Vegas' expectations with a 97-81 win. Plays like this from Nerlens Noel are the main reason why.
Despite the Oklahoma City Thunder superstar putting up monster numbers while keeping his team in playoff contention despite a season-long rash of injuries, Westbrook remains as divisive a player as basketball knows. But another future Hall-of-Famer with a relatively similar playing style is firmly the in the 25 year-old's corner.
Jarrett Jack isn't a good defender. We knew that even before Isaiah Canaan nearly put the Brooklyn Nets point guard on his ass with a simple hesitation move, but the video above just drives home that obvious point.
The Philadelphia 76ers posted an old quote of George Karl's on their snapchat account after beating his Kings. A point was made.

Allen Iverson was a star well before March 12, 1997. But the future Hall-of-Famer didn't become "The Answer" until he completed the most iconic crossover in league history during the latter stage of his debut season with the Philadelphia 76ers.
22-year-old Frenchman, Rudy Gobert, got into a tiff with Nerlens Noel on Friday, but Rudy doesn't need to jaw with a peer to prove himself.
The sidelined Philadelphia 76ers rookie makes this between-the-legs slam look frighteningly easy. Combined with the canny back-to-basket game he showed at Kansas and ever expanding shooting range, this exhibition of natural athleticism should have Philly fans salivating for Embiid to take the floor.
Russell Westbrook is back on the floor tonight following surgery for a fractured cheek. And though the Oklahoma City Thunder MVP candidate isn't wearing a mask befitting a favorite hip-hop emcee or literary phantom, the one he's donning is still pretty awesome.
