Post Up: Any Means Necessary

Jazz 89 (26-27), Wizards 103 (24-28)

Washington started their back-to-back-to-back with a nice win. Their defense and effort were noticeably improved after the news of the Markieff Morris trade. John Wall posted his 31st double-double and otherwise looked like a blur on the court:

Bulls 95 (27-26), Cavs 106 (39-14)

Chicago’s slide continued as the Bulls allowed an opponent to score 100 points for the eighth straight time. LeBron put up a near-triple-double and brought out his “Hotline Bling” dance:

Spurs 86 (45-9), Clippers 105 (36-18)

Even without Kawhi Leonard, San Antonio was able to cut the deficit to five in the fourth quarter. But then Chris Paul proceeded to score 18 points in the final frame to help L.A. pull away.
