Knicks 105 (23-29), Pistons 111 (27-24)

New York chipped away at a 27-point deficit to eventually take a two-point lead late in the fourth. But Reggie Jackson came up with two back-to-back three-pointers that gave Detroit the lead for good.

Is pouring water on a guy’s head a thing now?

Rockets 111 (27-25), Suns 105 (14-37)

Phoenix came back to take a four-point lead with 6 minutes left, but committed two costly turnovers in the final 20 seconds. Markieff Morris, PJ Tucker, Archie Goodwin and Devin Booker had 20 turnovers combined. Yikes.

Lakers 99 (11-41), Pelicans 96 (18-31)

Anthony Davis put up 39 points and 11 rebounds, but Kobe Bryant countered with 27 points and 12 rebounds—including a late three-pointer to seal the deal.

Raptors 110 (34-16), Blazers 103 (24-27)

The Raptors made a lot of history with this win. Not only did they get a victory in Portland for the first time in more than a decade, but the W gave Toronto its best start in franchise history through 50 games. Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan combined for 59 points.
