Elfrid Payton scored a career-high in points (26) and assists (14) as Orlando ended a three game losing streak by upsetting Atlanta 131-120. The Magic bench came through in a big way contributing 62 points in the win.
Terrence Ross knows how to dunk; he won the 2013 Slam Dunk Contest. On Tuesday Ross went up for a windmill dunk on a fast break and clanked it.
But you can’t keep a high-flyer down for long. The Raptors forward got sweet redemption a few days later…
The NBA and NBPA have reached an agreement in principle on a new 7-year CBA, league sources tell @TheVertical.

The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association announced a tentative agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement. Big takeaways, teams have more options to retain their current stars, the preseason will be shortened and the regular season will start sooner to help space out games for the players.
Trend Highlight: Visitors, Recent Dogs
Road teams are undervalued, that’s because home teams are often favored and the public likes betting favorites. Teams that just lost against-the-spread as underdogs are also undervalued as the public will be hesitant to back them again.
This Pro System “Visitor Recent Dogs – Losing Streak” is 34-21 (62%) ATS this season.
A game that matched this system in the last week was Brooklyn at Houston. James Harden nearly had a triple double as the Rockets beat the Nets 122-118. Despite the loss Brooklyn easily covered as 13.5 point underdogs.
