Actual basketball highlights from an actual basketball game. Remember those?
Okay, it’s preseason so we can debate actual basketball game if you want. Still, the Rajon Rondo behind the back assist is sweet. And by the way, I like the Brandon Bass get by the Celtics, he’s far from perfect but he’s an upgrade over Glen Davis. Good trade by Boston.
Also in this clip, you can check out the Raptors optical illusion logo under the basket (they call it 3D, not sure I go with that).

The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:
The Cavaliers are signing free agent shooting guard Dionte Christmas, a source told Yahoo Sports.
In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.
