The Knicks eventually fell to the Pistons after climbing out of the 27-point hole they dug themselves, but even in defeat, Langston Galloway’s pump-fake, spin-move, step-back short-corner splash remains a pretty big winner.

Rucas - Kiss Cam Conundrum

So, I saw this post yesterday, and @jenn0bi tagged a couple very talented (way more talented than me) writers that they should write a one shot based on the gif-set with Rucas, but I got excited and wrote it. Hopefully this isn’t awful. Also this is an AU where Rucas still haven’t gotten together and they’re seniors in high school.

“Congratulations, Lucas Friar! You have just won three tickets to the Knicks game next weekend,” the radio host’s voice bellowed through the phone.

“Thank you so much, sir! I really appreciate it!” Lucas said with a smile. He had been calling the radio station for three hours in hopes of winning Knicks tickets. He even skipped school to make sure he didn’t miss any opportunities. Luckily, his hard work was worth it. Now the problem was having the courage to ask Riley to the game. He obviously knew she was a big fan from her rant back in the eighth grade. He’s been wishing ever since then that they could be together, but something always got in the way. It was either timing, conflicts with other people, or something else out of their control. Lucas thought the game would be the perfect chance to start the next step in their relationship.

“Hey, Riley!” Lucas said as he stepped through Riley’s bay window. They were seniors in high school and that habit still hadn’t gone away.

“Hey! I just saw your text and my excitement is at all-time high. What’s the big news?” Riley said as she skipped over to the bay window.

“Well, I really hope you don’t have any plans next weekend, because I just won some Knicks tickets!” Lucas shouted pulling out the tickets. He picked them up on the way over knowing the physical evidence would add to the effect of his announcement. But Riley didn’t give the reaction he was expecting. She was frowning.

“What’s wrong?” Lucas asked as worry came over his face. He was preparing himself for lots of screaming and jumping up and down, not frowning.

“I actually do have plans, Lucas. Charlie asked me to go get dinner with him. And I’ve hurt him so many times in the past. I don’t think I can cancel on him this time.” Riley said with a frown. Riley wanted to go to the game more than anything, but she couldn’t hurt Charlie. He was so sweet to her and she couldn’t put him down. Lucas knew this, so the next sentence left his mouth very reluctantly.

“He can come, too. I won three tickets.” Lucas said with a sigh. So much for starting the next step in their relationship.

“Really? Thank you so much, Lucas!” Riley shrieked and jumped into Lucas’ arms. Suddenly, inviting Charlie felt like it was worth it.

Kristaps Porzingis getting ‘MVP’ chants tonight at MSG!

He dropped a career-high 35 points in the Knicks win.

The 3 plays in sports everybody will be talking about today

(ESPN)

Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about on Thursday:

Russell Westbrook dunked on the Houston Rockets with his left hand. The Thunder entered their matchup against the Rockets having lost four in a row and dropped to 6-5 in their first season without Kevin Durant. But with less than 10 seconds to go, they were up by three. That’s when Westbrook sealed the win with a thunderous left-handed dunk. He then freaked the heck out in a way that only Westbrook could do. The Thunder won, 105-103.

Kristaps Porzingis had himself a night. Porzingis scored a career-high 35 points in the Knicks’ 105-102 win over the Pistons, and none of those baskets were prettier than this fast break in the second quarter, when Porzingis ran the wing and then took the lob for the alley-oop finish. His stare-down afterward suggests he enjoyed it also.

Kevin Durant don’t give a damn about no damn Drake Night. The Warriors visited Toronto to face the Raptors, and it just happened to be Drake Night. This meant the Warriors players would have to deal with some trash-talking from the rapper Drake, who is from Toronto. After the game, a 127-121 win for the Warriors in which Durant scored 30 points, KD tried to do a postgame interview with ESPN. Midway through the interview, Drake bumped into Durant, and Durant could not have looked less pleased. Toward the end of the interview, Durant was asked about the trash-talking, to which he replied, “I don’t give a damn about no damn Drake Night,” and then just walked off.
