TWO BITS: Highlights from Parsons, Noah, Young

1 » Florida Gators basketball may have had a rough afternoon on Saturday, but Houston Rockets rookie forward Chandler Parsons had an explosive evening against Dallas. Not only did Parsons finish an impressive alley-oop pass from teammate Luis Scola, he also hit a game-tying trey with 3.3 seconds left in the game to force overtime. Though Houston would fall 101-99 in the end, Parsons had another solid night, scoring 12 points and adding 11 rebounds for the second double-double of his young career (his first was a 20 and 11 effort on Thursday) to go along with six assists in 46 minutes.

2 » Parsons was not the only former Florida player to have a memorable NBA moment on Saturday. Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was kicked out of his game after receiving a double technical. Noah was called for a foul, argued the call with some colorful language (technical) and then threw the basketball near the referee (second technical). Though he did not speak after the game, Noah expressed his thoughts in three succinct words on Twitter early Sunday morning.

Extra BIT » Gators sophomore center Patric Young‘s one-handed alley-oop dunk that somehow did not make SportsCenter’s top plays (of course).
