One last look back: Top 10 plays of 2012 (VIDEO)

This is it. We are done after this one. No more looking back at 2012, only looking forward to 2013 and when the Lakers trade Pau Gasol. Maybe.

But the NBA’s top 10 plays of 2012 was too good not to run. Watch it and you get to see Rudy Fernandez with the buzzer-beating tip-in of a missed half court shot again. Or LeBron leaping over John Lucas III for the alley-oop finish. And can you ever see Blake Griffin dunk on Kendrick Perkins too much?

Enjoy. Then join us in 2013.

Anthony Bennett moves around, dunks on Lakers’ Upshaw (VIDEO)

If you believe there is a difference between being dunked on and being dunked around, this definitely falls in the latter category.

Still, it’s an impressive move by Toronto’s Anthony Bennett to make the move and dunk around Lakers’ big man Robert Upshaw during the Raptors’ 105-97 preseason win over the Lakers Thursday night.

Bennett only had four points, but Kyle Lowry had another impressive preseason outing with 25. He has looked sharp. Julius Randle had 17 for the Lakers on 7-of-10 shooting.

Report: Cavs sign Dionte Christmas

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:

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.
