OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER 95 – DENVER NUGGETS 99
Jokic was left with a difficult game and had to turn to a teammate who has not had a good season so far. Austin Rivers, with a 3-pointer to tie and a 2-pointer to put the Nuggets ahead, was his second on board. The guard-point guard scored 22 points, the same as the Serbian center, and between the two they beat OKC in their lair. Denver has won more road games, eleven, than at home, nine.
HOUSTON ROCKETS 123 – MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES 141
The Wolves, with all four quarters scoring more than thirty points each, clinched a winger win. Towns (40) led on a night of pain for Houston, which has not returned to the line of its consecutive victories of a month ago.
PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS 103 – SACRAMENTO KINGS 88
Lillard and McCollum are still not playing and Simons (31) takes advantage of that to act as director and shooter in equal parts. Powell wasn’t on protocol either, and the Blazers didn’t seem to notice either, which says very little about these giddy Kings, who have their fourth straight loss and show no sign of improvement.
LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS 106 – ATLANTA HAWKS 93
Amir Coffey (21) was the ace of the Clippers’ sleeve against the Hawks. The seconds again give a bad impression. On this tour of the West they have taken two victories out of six possible. Those of Lue had eight players in double digits. Serge Ibaka only missed one of his eight shots from the field.
ORLANDO MAGIC 100 – WASHINGTON WIZARDS 102
The Wizards put out their best defensive side on the last play to prevent the Magic from lifting the victory. Harris couldn’t beat Beal (20) and Okeke couldn’t beat Kuzma (27) in that double attempt with the clock almost at zero. Ross (32) was the best in Orlando one more day.
TORONTO RAPTORS 105 – NEW ORLEANS PELICANS 101
The Raptors are again left with another game for them with VanVleet (32) and Siakam (29) as kings of the court. The Canadian team progresses in the East without making much noise. The Pelicans did not have Willy and had Ingram (22) as their leading scorer.
BROOKLYN NETS 121 – SAN ANTONIO SPURS 119
Rookie Cam Thomas hits the winning basket 1.4 seconds from the end of overtime. Brooklyn had five straight losses at home. Read the chronicle.
Los Angeles Lakers 119 – MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES 127
The Lakers finish with their four victories in a row leaving a bad impression against a few limping Grizzlies, who do not stop. Read the chronicle.
DALLAS MAVERICKS 113 – CHICAGO BULLS 99
Dallas is beginning to become very serious. It’s been six in a row. Chicago was nine and his streak was cut. Triple-double for Doncic. Read the chronicle.
GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS 96 – CLEVELAND CAVALIERS 82
The Warriors guard has been out of play for two and a half years due to a couple of tough injuries. 17 points in his emotional return to the slopes. Read the chronicle.
