Hawks 122 (42-30), Wizards 101 (35-36)

Behind 23 points from Dennis Schroder, Atlanta got the W in the second half of the home-and-home series with Washington.

Bucks 104 (30-42), Cavs 113 (51-20)

LeBron James led Cleveland with 26 points, 8 assists and 6 rebounds, and Kyrie Irving finished with 16 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists on his 24th birthday. Bron added several highlight jams, but none better than this two-handed reverse:

Raptors 79 (48-22), Celtics 91 (42-30)

Boston avoided the season sweep by pulling away from the Kyle Lowry-less Raptors in the second half. Isaiah Thomas finished with a game-high 23 points on 8-17 shooting and was impressive getting into the paint.

Magic 102 (29-42), Pistons 118 (38-34)

Andre Drummond dropped 30 points and 14 rebounds as Detroit moved into the final playoff spot in the East.

Knicks 115 (29-43), Bulls 107 (36-34)

Kristaps Porzingis matched his career high with 29 points and added 10 rebounds to snap the Bulls’ three-game winning streak. The 7-3 rook threw down one of his best poster dunks of the season on Pau Gasol:

Niko Mirotic scored a career-high 35 and tied the Bulls record with 9 treys.

Jazz 89 (35-36), Rockets 87 (35-37)

Houston blew an 18-point lead as James Harden missed a jumper at the buzzer that would have tied the game. Derrick Favors’ dunk with 1.6 seconds left gave the Jazz the go-ahead bucket.

Kings 104 (27-44), T-Wolves 113 (23-48)

Karl-Anthony Towns led Minny with 26 points and 11 rebounds, while Zach LaVine and Andrew Wiggins contributed with 23 each. Wiggins added a dunk over another 7-footer to his collection of posters as well:

Heat 88 (41-30), Spurs 112 (60-11)

San Antonio is now 36-0 at home this season after handing Miami an emphatic defeat. Kawhi Leonard tied a career high with 32 points, but left early with a right knee contusion.

76ers 103 (9-63), Nuggets 104 (30-42)

Manny Mudiay made a double-clutch three from near halfcourt at the buzzer and steal the victory from Philly’s clutches.

Lakers 107 (15-56), Suns 119 (20-51)

Kobe Bryant scored 17 points in his final game in Phoenix, but Devin Booker and Brandon Knight combined to score 53 points in the Suns’ victory.

Mavs 103 (35-36), Blazers 109 (37-35)

Damian Lillard had 27 points and 6 assists as Portland took a 1.5-game lead for sixth in the West.
