by March 03, 2016

Bulls 89 (30-30), Magic 102 (27-33)

Chicago’s abysmal play continued as they allowed an opponent to score 100 points for the 15th straight game.ย Magic rookie Mario Hezonja scored a career-high 21 points as a starter, including this thunderous dunk:

Hornets 119 (32-28), 76ers 99 (8-53)

Kemba Walker scored 30 points to lead Charlotte, who head home for a seven-game home streak.

Blazers 93 (33-29), Celtics 116 (37-25)

Isaiah Thomas dropped 30 points as Boston extended their home win streak to 12 games.

Jazz 94 (28-32), Raptors 104 (40-19)

Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan combined for 63 points as Toronto recorded their 11th straight win at home. Rodney Hood left the game with what the Jazz are calling a “minor head injury.”

Pelicans 95 (23-36), Rockets 100 (30-31)

Houston made just 3-34 three-point attempts, but Patrick Beverley hit a three with 51 seconds left that eventually led to the win. Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry essentially conceded that New Orleans is destined for the Draft lottery after the disappointing loss.

Kings 98 (24-35), Grizzlies 104 (36-24)

Zach Randolph scored 19 points to lead Memphis, but got put on a poster by Kings rookie Willie Cauley-Stein.

Vince Carter made sure the Grizzlies had the last laugh with this reverse alley-oop flush.

Pacers 104 (32-29), Bucks 99 (25-36)

Khris Middleton’s three-point attempt in the final seconds missed the mark and the Pacers held on to snap a three-game slide. And Giannis is like Stretch Armstrong out there.

Wizards 104 (30-30), T-Wolves 98 (19-42)

Bradley Beal led Washington in scoring with 26 points off the bench. The Wizards are 7-2 since the All-Star break and back firmly in the Playoff picture.

Pistons 81 (31-30), Spurs 97 (51-9)

San Antonio used a 27-14 third quarter to improve to 29-0 on the season at home and clinch a Playoff spot for the 19th consecutive season.

Zach LaVine had 21 points for Minny, and one signature fastbreak dunk:

Lakers 107 (12-50), Nuggets 117 (24-37)

Kobe Bryant played just 11 minutes and scored just 5 points before leaving the game in the first half with a sore right shoulder. Los Angeles also lost Jordan Clarkson in the second half after he injured his knee.

Thunder 98 (42-19), Clippers 103 (40-20)

Los Angeles trailed by as many as 22 points, but a 35-13 fourth quarter capped off a furious comeback win. DeAndre Jordan recorded a massive double-double of 20 points and 18 rebounds. No time to sulk for OKC, as they face the Warriors tomorrow.
