NBA program for Thursday, February 28
* All times is
The miracle strike of Wade beats Warriors
Was there a better way for Dwyane Wade's last match against the Warriors to end? The 37-year-old was blocked during his initial attempt, but was forced to start a prayer at the sound of the ring … and the answer was given. Wade finished his night with 25 points and seven rebounds with a dagger to beat Golden State.
LeBron throws him to the ground
LeBron James may be 34, but he can still do some great sports on the court. He proved it on Wednesday with this double pump dunk in transition. James finished with 33 points, 10 assists and six rebounds in the win.
Bagley hurts his knee
Kings rookie Marvin Bagley left Wednesday's loss to the Bucks in the third quarter with what the Kings call a sprained left knee. Bagley is expected to have an MRI on Thursday to deepen the assessment of the damage.
Harden, Walker in a duel in Charlotte
Just a few weeks after the star game, there was a duel between the stars in Charlotte. James Harden had 30 points and seven assists in the Hornets' Rockets victory. For his part, Kemba Walker did his best in the loss, scoring 35 points, four rebounds, four assists and five interceptions.
Young, Collins introduces himself to the Hawks
Trae Young and John Collins become a young duo in Atlanta. On Wednesday, they became the first teammates aged 21 and under to score 30 points each in the same match.
VC goes back in time
Vince Carter is still going strong. Even though he does not have the same level of athleticism as earlier in his career, he still has more than anyone in the league. Against the Timberwolves, he went back in time to hang in the air and finish.
Bam goes on Durant
Bam Adebayo put Kevin Durant on a huge display during the Heat match against the Warriors. In quick break, the imposing young man threw a big pass to KD.
Brown shakes and slams in transition
Jaylen Brown is known for his big slams on the fast break, but this time, he showed his dribbling skills by performing a bad move back and forth.
Dragic is hot in the first half
Goran Dragic is back for the Heat, and he showed in the first half against the Warriors why he was important to this team. Dragic scored 25 points in the first 24 minutes, setting a career high for a half.
Holiday crosses and slams

Young lobs at Collins
Trae Young and John Collins have come up with some great chemistry this season, which they exhibited during the fast against the Timberwolves. Discover this beautiful alley-oop.
Davis and pelicans head for L.A. to face the Lakers
Anthony Davis goes to Los Angeles. No, not to join the Lakers – at least not yet – but to play against them. The big man should play about 20 minutes Wednesday night, while the Pelicans continue the strange dance of keeping him active not to be fined, but protect him from injury. Of course, with Davis' request for exchange and his apparent desire to play for the Lakers, attention will be paid to all the details of this game.
