It was another great week in the NBA.

Dwight Howard tried to be a point guard and let’s just say his coach never wants the eight-time All-Star doing that again.

Cleveland’s J.R. Smith also made headlines for all the wrong reasons after he left the court in the middle of a game to shake hands and hug an old teammate who was on the bench. Smith’s man saw what was happening and got an easy dunk out of it.

Are we sure Kevin Love didn’t play quarterback in high school? The three-time All-Star showed off his arm as he hit LeBron James with a perfect pass for an easy slam.

The 76ers and Kings got together — arguably two of the worst teams currently in the NBA —and it showed as the game ended up being canceled due to moisture on the court. 76ers star center Joel Embiid jokingly tweeted out, “Well, the court was tanking tonight.”

Rudy Gobert had another monster game for the Utah Jazz. Playing the Hawks the day after Thanksgiving, Gobert gave Howard some stuffing as the big fella finished with 16 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks on the night. The win was extra special for Jazz fans after Howard poked fun at the franchise in the offseason.

So with that, here are all the top plays from the past week:
