This video doesn’t have to do with the game but it’s dope. Throwback to AND1 Mixtape Tour memories.

Suns 109 (17-34), Grizzlies 120 (18-31)

Despite being without their trio of max contract players, the Grizzlies’ offense has been resurgent as of late and it showed against the Suns as Tyreke Evans scored 27 points off the bench and seven other players scored at least nine points.

76ers 95 (24-23), Bucks 107 (27-22)

GiannisΒ Antetokounmpo outdueled Ben Simmons in a 31-point, 18-rebound performance that gave the Bucks cushion in the standings and narrowed the gap between 8-seed Phildelphia and 9-seed Detroit as Joel Embiid sat out. Dario Saric led the Sixers with 19 points. Matthew Delladevoda played a crucial role in the second half as he contributed 10 points off the pine.

Heat (29-21),Β Mavericks (16-35)

Dennis Smith Jr. had the highlight of the night, but Dallas still couldn’t get the job done as Hassan Whiteside’s 25-point, 14-rebound double-double sunk the Mavericks.

Celtics 111 (36-15), Nuggets 110 (26-24)

The Nuggets went blow for blow with the Celtics as six players scored at least 14 points, but 47 combined points from Jayson Tatum and Kyrie Irving plus a pair of heroic offensive rebounds by Terry Rozier kept the game out of reach.
