Hold tight, NBA fans. The tip-off of the 2013-14 regular season is just days away, but before that there are still a number of exciting preseason match-ups to cover. Last night, several young up-and-comers and established veterans got to show their stuff a total of 8 games to close out the preseason. In an unusual twist, a 9th game between the Raptos and Bucks was scheduled, but cancelled after less than one quarter of play due to the slickness of the Bradley Center court.

Despite the cancellation, there was no shortage of action on the hardwood. Charlotte and New York played the night's closest game in New York, with the Bobcats taking a 85-83 win. Elsewhere, the Bulls downed the Nuggets 94-89 to maintain their perfect 8-0 preseason record. And the night doesn't stop there, continue on to find out who shined brightest on the final night of the 2013-14 NBA preseason.
