Last week, Jordan brought out some of the best high school hoop talent in the greater Los Angeles area for the Jordan XXXIV Sneaker release.

Teams coached by Baron Davis & Chris Matthews ( aka @lethalshooter ) battled in an All-Star game format that ended up getting super competitive as it came down to the wire. The game took place in downtown Los Angeles on the rooftop of the Air Jordan store.

Los Angeles seems to be in the lead as far as producing basketball talent. So many young stars and current NBA players come out of Southern California.

Houston Rockets guard James Harden has been on fire all season and shows no signs of slowing down.

Harden had his second straight game of 50+ points and 10+ three-pointers as the Rockets blowout the Orlando Magic 130-107 on Friday’s contest.

Harden, who leads the NBA in scoring at 39.3 points per game, scorched the Magic’s defense with 55 points and 10-15 shooting from the three-point arc.

The scoring outburst comes just two days after Harden scored 54 points on 10 three-pointers in Wednesday’s win over the Cavaliers.

The Rockets also shot 22-39 from three as a team, setting a franchise record for the most three-point makes by an Orlando opponent.

The Magic never had a chance in the contest and were unable to close the gap after a 10-point halftime deficit.

Orlando guard Evan Fournier was the lone bright spot, leading the team with 27 points.

With massive scoring efforts night after night, Harden has once again returned himself to the MVP conversation, hoping to win the award for the second time since 2018.

Lebron James, Anthony Davis Lead Lakers Over Heat

With the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat being two of the NBA’s hottest teams this season, their matchup had all the makings of a heavyweight fight.

The results were anything but disappointing.

On Friday night, All-NBA forwards Lebron James and Anthony Davis cooled off the Heat in the Lakers’ 113-110 road victory, snapping Miami’s home winning streak at 11.

James flirted with a triple-double, recording 28 points, 12 assists, and 9 rebounds, while Davis provided 33 points and 10 rebounds.

The duo was vital down the stretch, each making critical plays to stunt Miami’s comeback efforts.

Heat forward Jimmy Butler’s three-point attempt to tie narrowly missed in the final seconds. However, the NBA would announce after the game Butler was fouled twice on the play.

Butler lead Miami in scoring with 23 points, while Derrick Jones Jr. added 17 points and some high-flying dunks.

The Lakers are now tied with the Milwaukee Bucks for the overall record in the NBA at 23-3.

With the combination of James and Davis being nearly unstoppable this season, the Lakers have become the favorite for this year’s NBA title.

Offensively, All-Star forwards Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are hard enough to stop on their own.

Together, it’s nearly impossible.

Leonard and George scored a combined 88 points in Friday night’s 124-117 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, marking the fourth-straight victory for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Leonard scored 42 points while shooting a career-best 19-19 from the free-throw line, while George added 46 points along with seven assists.

The duo’s scoring onslaught was the first time in Clippers history two teammates scored 40+ points in the same game and only the 21st occurrence in NBA history.

The Timberwolves pair of stars in Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins also combined for a fantastic offensive performance, with Towns putting up 39 points and 12 rebounds, and Wiggins contributing 34 points.

Minnesota was able to storm back from a 21-point deficit to cut the Clippers lead to four with a minute left but ultimately couldn’t seal the deal, resulting in the Timberwolves’ seventh-straight loss.

With Leonard and George’s chemistry improving every game, the Clippers are proving to be one of the best teams in the West.
