Friday's Knicks-Raptors game will feature 6 alumni of the NBA's Basketball Without Borders program. New York's Frank Ntilikina, Enes Kanter and Willy Hernangomez all attended Basketball Without Borders camps. As did Toronto's Jonas Valanciunas, Pascal Siakam and Bruno Caboclo. Basketball Without Borders is the NBA and Fiba's global basketball development and community outreach program. More than 50 players from BWB camps have been drafted into the NBA since 2001.

Goalie duel, Stamkos' four-pointer rocked our world

The Devils-Maple Leafs tilt lived up to its billing and more, thanks to a goalie duel that somehow contained two fast and high-scoring teams. Plus, ho-hum, Steven Stamkos had a four-point night and the Wild were electric in their big-time rally.

Knicks notch another comeback

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 26 points for the Knicks on Wednesday as they overcame a 12-point deficit to beat the Jazz. It was the fifth time this season that New York erased a double-digit deficit to win a game, tying the Pistons for the most victories of that kind in the NBA. (Elias Sports Bureau)

In a bit of a surprise, Jose Altuve was the landslide winner over Aaron Judge in the AL MVP voting, collecting 27 of 30 first-place votes. He becomes the second MVP in Astros history, joining Jeff Bagwell, and he did it on the strength of his all-around brilliance and season-long consistency. He won his third batting title, reached 200 hits for the fourth season in a row, stole 32 bases and played solid defense at a premium position. Not bad for a guy who was told to go home after the first day of a tryout camp when he was 16 years old. He came back the next day anyway. Now he's the MVP.
