Jason Williams turned 40 Wednesday, and the NBA celebrated with an awesome highlight video.
BOSTON (AP) — Dallas Mavericks forward Charlie Villanueva has left the team for the birth of his second child.
Villanueva missed the team’s game against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.
The 31-yeard-old Villanueva is averaging 7.8 points and 4.0 rebounds.
The Rockets trailed by 17 with 14 and a half minutes left and by seven with a minute left.
But Corey Brewer sent Houston and Portland to overtime with this long running 3-pointer.
The Trail Blazers, up three, intentionally fouled James Harden on Houston’s previous possession. It appeared they were trying to duplicate the strategy, but Harden passed to Brewer before they could.

Evan Fournier ensured one extra period would be enough.
Orlando overcame a 14-point second-half deficit for the 104-101 win.
Fournier’s final shot gave him 19 points on nine shots, including 4-of-5 3-point shooting, after halftime. He finished with 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting, including 5-of-7 from beyond the arc.
