Reggie Bullock has a career night

Reggie Bullock hasn't seen much playing time this season for the Los Angeles Clippers mostly due to the fact that the team's roster is loaded with talented players. But on Sunday night Bullock got an extended opportunity because several players were unavailable due to injuries. Playing on his 23rd birthday, Bullock poured in a career-high 14 points in 26 minutes off the bench. The shooting guard shot 5-of-9 from the field including two three-pointers in helping the Clippers take down the Cleveland Cavaliers and extending the team's winning streak to 11 games.

After the game Bullock made a trip to the podium to talk about the best night of his young professional career.

Vince Carter trick shot

Vince Carter has been a key member of the Dallas Mavericks this season and is one of the reasons the team is in seventh place in the Western Conference. Carter has always been a good long-range shooter, but this 86-footer he hit from his backside during his Orlando Magic days is kind of ridiculous:

Cool Harrison Barnes video

Harrison Barnes has been a very important player for the Golden State Warriors so far in his NBA career.  The Iowa native can do a little bit of everything and has put up nice numbers this season coming off the bench to spell starter Andre Iguodala. Check out this interview Barnes did about his childhood and overcoming adversity:

Wayne Ellington gets his chance

Wayne Ellington has struggled to log substantial minutes for the Dallas Mavericks this season, but lately the former Tar Heel has been a key contributor for the team as it makes it's final playoff push. Having sporadic playing time opportunities makes it hard for players to stay in a rhythm, but Ellington has managed to still play well when head coach Rick Carlisle calls his name. His professional attitude has not gone unnoticed by his Maverick teammates writes Eddie Sefko of the Dallas News:

Hansbrough vs. Thunder Friday night

Although the game conflicts with Carolina's NCAA tournament game against Providence Friday night, keep an eye on the Toronto and Oklahoma City matchup. Toronto has put together a strong season so far and currently sits in third place in the Eastern Conference. A statement win over the Thunder could be a huge confidence booster as the playoffs draw closer. Tyler Hansbrough will have the tough assignment of helping to contain Thunder big man Serge Ibaka.
