Friday provided 10 games the night before New Year¡¯s Eve. If you were out celebrating, as most were, here¡¯s what else you missed in NBA land:
When New Orleans dropped its first eight games and got off to a 2-10 start, the Pelicans plummeted down the Western Conference standings. But Jrue Holiday had more pressing matters to deal with, like doctors discovering his pregnant wife had a brain tumor.
Since 2007, the Patriots have hosted 12 playoff games, while going on the road just twice.
New England¡¯s 14-2 record is even more impressive considering it came with Brady forced to serve a four-game suspension at the beginning of the year due to DeflateGate. The Patriots went 2-0 with backup Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback, and 1-1 with third-string Jacoby Brissett after Garoppolo suffered an injury.

In Brady¡¯s return, he¡¯s been nothing short of fantastic for the Patriots. In 12 starts, Brady racked up over 3,500 yards with 28 touchdowns and two interceptions ¡ª setting the record for touchdown to interception ratio ¡ª and putting himself in legitimate contention for the NFL MVP award.
Limited Youth Ray Bourque Jersey It wasn¡¯t all Brady for the Patriots, though. No team has allowed fewer points, and New England is also in the top 10 in rushing yards and touchdowns.
The Patriots has proven year in and year out that it¡¯s a dangerous playoff contender, and the team¡¯s path to another Super Bowl goes through Gillette Stadium.
