Heat 104 (15-9), Nets 98 (7-18)
Dwyane Wade could barely get out of bed this morning, but dominated in Brooklyn at night. He scored 10 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter, and made 13-17 attempts in the game.
Celtics 116 (14-12), Pistons 119 (15-12)
All five Detroit starters put up double figures—led by a career-high 31 from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Isaiah Thomas had a career-high of his own with 38 points in the loss.
T-Wolves 102 (9-16), Knicks 107 (12-14)
After blowing a 22-point lead, the Knicks held off the Wolves behind Carmelo Anthony’s near triple-double of 20 points, 15 rebounds and 9 assists. Porzingis had 6 blocks in the first half, including one against Karl-Anthony Towns and three against Andrew Wiggins. Ricky Rubio was 1 point and 2 steals away from becoming fifth player in NBA history with a quadruple-double.
76ers 106 (1-26), Hawks 127 (15-12)
Atlanta had 102 points by the end of the third quarter as no Hawks player logged more than 28 minutes. Richaun Holmes had a nasty dunk for Philly, though…
Grizzlies 85 (14-13), Bulls 98 (15-8)
Pau Gasol (10 points, 14 rebounds) racked up another win against his brother Marc (8 points, 7 boards). Dating back their first NBA matchup almost seven years ago, Pau is 12-9 against his younger brother.
Blazers 90 (11-16), Thunder 106 (17-8)
The Thunder are slowly rounding into form and full health. The starters got to sit the entire fourth quarter as OKC carries a six-game winning streak to Cleveland on Thursday.
Wizards 95 (10-14), Spurs 114 (22-5)
Consider this: Washington only trailed by 3 points at halftime. Then, San Antonio unleashed a 31-19 third quarter and never looked back. Kawhi Leonard had 27 points, while the Spurs rested Tim Duncan. San Antonio is now 14-0 at home this season.
Pelicans 104 (7-18), Jazz 94 (10-14)
The game was tied with 5:34 left in the fourth quarter. The Pels then peeled off a 15-5 run to close out the game. Anthony Davis finished with 17 points and 13 rebounds.
Bucks 90 (10-17), Clippers 103 (16-10)
DeAndre Jordan was ejected midway through the third for arguing a call, but L.A. didn’t seem to miss a beat. Milwaukee, who was without Greg Monroe (Grade I MCL sprain), has lost 11 straight on the road.
Suns 103 (11-16), Warriors 128 (25-1)
Klay Thompson put up 27 points in the third quarter to give him 43 points on the game. He and Stephen Curry alone had outscored the Suns 68-65 through three quarters. Oh, and Draymond Green picked up his fourth triple-double of the season, which is tied for most in the NBA.
