Hey it’s November already! And what a wonderful time of year it is. There’s hockey. There’s football. There’s basketball. And soon, there’ll be butterball. What's not to like?
Fans across the country are responding, sending ticket sales for all major sports off on a fast break, according to Felina Martinez at online ticket marketplace BuyAnySeat.com.

The Denver Nuggets, Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, Utah Jazz, Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards are also showing strong ticket sales.
The top rated Spurs have won seven in a row, and are playing the machine-like ball fans have come to know and love. The Indiana Pacers, also at 9-1, are second in the rankings, while the Miami Heat, Portland Trailblazers, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Minnesota Timberwolves, Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls round out the top ten.

The NBA regular season is set to run through April 16, 2014, followed by the playoffs and finals in June – just as MLB Baseball is heating up their 162-game regular season. The 2014 NBA All-Star Game will be played on February 16, 2014, at the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana.
During the offseason, 13 teams made coaching changes. The New Orleans Hornets became the New Orleans Pelicans. And, the Charlotte Bobcats will become the Charlotte Hornets again for the 2014–15 season – and for the first time since the 2001–02 season.
The Cleveland Cavaliers won the #1 draft for the second time in three years and tapped Anthony Bennett of UNLV. The NBA also officially implemented a tournament system in both of their Summer League systems. The Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors were the inaugural champions of the Orlando and Las Vegas Summer League Tournaments respectively.
Last season ended on June 20, 2013 with the Miami Heat defeating the San Antonio Spurs in seven games to win the 2013 NBA Finals. Top Eastern conference teams, in order of season-ending rank, were the Miami Heat, New York Knicks, Indiana Pacers, Brooklyn Nets, Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks.
Leaders in the Western Conference were the Oklahoma Thunder, San Antonio Spurs, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets.
Last year, the Heat led the league with a 66-16 record and .805 winning percentage. The New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony had the most points average per game at 28.7. LeBron James took home the season MVP, led the league in Efficiency Per Game with a 31.6 rating, and scored a season-best seven Triple-Doubles.
