We're only 12 games into this but the Mavs are still your NBA dunk leaders w/ 71 this season, next are Bucks (62), Jazz (58) & Clippers (54)

Mark Followill

Point of all that, pretty unique to see 2 guys on floor going against each other who are Top 10 scorers as we'll see w/ Dirk & Kobe tonight

Mark Followill

Before the Shaq v Kobe matchup in 2011 as top 10 scorers, previous one was Valentine's Day 2003, Jordan's Wizards at Malone's Jazz

Mark Followill

Regarding last tweet, have only the faintest of recollections of Shaq as a Celtic - avg 9.2 pts in 37 games in 2010-11

Best as I can tell, last time 2 Top 10 players in NBA history in scoring played in same game: 1/30/2011, Boston (Shaq #5) @ Lakers (Kobe #8)
