Friday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Sarah Scotford; Marco Belinelli's Buzzer Beater Called Off
The Game Winner That Wasn't
Thursday night was busy in the NBA. James Harden's Rockets just edged Russell Westbrook's Thunder in a matchup of MVP candidates. Dwight Howard booed himself. There was even a big trade.
