We’ve got another six games coming up in the NBA tonight, which should make for a solid evening of entertainment. Prior to those tip-offs, let’s check out our daily look at the headlines and see what everyone’s talking about this morning.

Heat-Thunder: This was one of the wildest games of the year so far, and felt every bit like the playoffs.
The Heat posted a 97-95 win last night over OKC, thanks to Dwyane Wade’s 28 points. He nailed a pair of free throws with just 1.5 seconds left that would be the deciding points.
This game featured a whopping 38 lead changes and 11 ties; it easily could have gone either way. The Thunder missed a pair of 3-pointes in the final 10 seconds that could have taken the win.
