Celtics win streak ended by Heat
Boston's streak has come to an end. It struggled against Miami throughout the game, but it was also one of those games where everything went right for one team. Dion Waiters hit an absurd shot off the glass that never should have gone in, which is a good example of what kind of night it was for the Heat. These streaks always seem to end against a team you never expect it to.
Kevin Durant goes back to Oklahoma City
Kevin Durant made another return to Oklahoma City, but this time it didn't go very well for him and the Warriors. Oklahoma City won in blowout fashion and and the Thunder finally got their revenge on Durant for leaving. Of course, Golden State is probably happy with the results of last season despite losing Wednesday.
LeBron James goes off in fourth quarter, leads Cavs to victory
LeBron had to exit the game for a while due to a cut on his lip, but he was back in time for the fourth quarter, and absolutely took over. He went 7 for 8 from the floor in the final 12 minutes, scoring 23 of the Cavs' 42 points in the frame, and Cleveland picked up a 119-109 victory against Brooklyn.
