LeBron James finished with 33 points, and Kyrie Irving added 22 points in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ win over the Indiana Pacers after having dropped two in a row.

Wizards 116 (29-30), Sixers 108 (8-52)
John Wall, though…
The Wizards’ star dropped 37 points on Monday night, with 16 coming in the fourth quarter, against the L’s worst Philly 76ers. He also dished out 7 assists. Marcin Gortat (18 points, 20 rebounds) and Markieff Morris (16 points, 13 boards) each added a double-double in the win.
Celtics 100 (36-25), Jazz 95 (28-31)
The win against the Utah Jazz on Monday night was the Boston Celtics’ 11th straight at home. Jae Crowder led the home crowd with 22 points, while Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley added 18 points each to overcome Utah’s six players in double-digits.
Bucks 128 (25-35), Rockets 121 (29-31)
So…how ’bout them Bucks? Jabari Parker scored a career-high 36 points against the Houston Rockets on Monday night.
Then on top of that, Giannis Antetokounmpo dropped another triple-double (18 points, 11 assists, 17 rebounds), which you can watch up top.

Thunder 131 (42-18), Kings 116 (24-34)
That’s triple-double No. 9 for Russell Westbrook this season—our latest cover subject. His 20 points, 13 rebounds and 15 assists led the Thunder to victory after the team lost its last two games. Kevin Durant finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds himself, and Enes Kanter added 22 off the bench on a perfect 11-11 shooting. DeMarcus Cousins finished with the game-high 35 points and 12 boards for the Kings, but that wasn’t enough to silence the Thunder.
Clippers 105 (39-20), Nets 95 (17-43)
Chris Paul recorded 23 points and 12 assists, and Jamal Crawford finished with 26 to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a win on Monday night. The victory was the team’s second in a row as they shot just under 50 percent from the field. This dunk, though, was 100 percent solid:
