Mark EvansThe NBA season can’t come quickly enough. Even the preseason is giving us some serious highlights.
We showed you Tim Duncan’s coast-to-coast play, Andre Drummond’s reverse alley-oop, and now the Utah Jazz are joining in on the fun. This crazy sequence is getting us pumped for the season to start up.
