Indiana Pacers 105, Houston Rockets 95

It was a contrast of styles with these two teams; the Rockets were second in points scored while the Pacers were first in points allowed going into this game. But it turned out to be a wire-to-wire victory by Indiana. Paul George and the Houston Rockets scored the same amount of points in the first quarter with 18. George would end the game with 31 points and the Rockets were sent to their sixth straight loss and out of the Top 8 in the Western Conference.

Memphis Grizzlies 85, Sacramento Kings 69

If you were expecting an offensive show from this game, you probably also believed in the existence of Lennay Kekua. In any case, the Grizzlies’ defense never let up and held the Kings to 34 percent from the field. Mike Conley led a balanced (yet not an explosive) offensive attack with 19 points. Memphis continues to have a stranglehold on the fourth seed in the West.

San Antonio Spurs 95, Golden State Warriors 88

Danny Green made a huge three-pointer with 1:30 left to put the Spurs up seven and the Warriors away. Tony Parker led San Antonio with 25 points while Tim Duncan continues to drink from the Fountain of Youth with 24 points and 10 boards. Stephen Curry sat out this game with a sprained ankle and we can only hope that Curry doesn’t suffer any more ankle problems because I’m sure this has gotten real old to him and the Warriors fans.

Washington Wizards 112, Denver Nuggets 108

Washington went on a 14-0 tear that started at the end of the third. That gave the Wiz a 92-87 lead. Still, Denver had a chance to tie the game with 8.6 seconds left but John Wall rejected Ty Lawson’s potential game-tying lay-up. Wall would make the foul shots to seal the game and Washington escaped with a four-point win over Denver. Bradley Beal led the Wizards with 23 points. Don’t look now but Washington has won four of their last five games (3-1 with John Wall in the line-up).

Oklahoma City Thunder 117, Dallas Mavericks 114 (OT)

O.J. Mayo made a three-pointer to tie the game at 105. That would send the game to overtime. In the extra period, Kevin Durant made one of his zillions of buckets (a one-handed floater over Shawn Marion) with 16.5 seconds left that gave OKC a two-point lead. The Mavs had one more chance to tie down three but Vince Carter was way off on his three-point attempt. Kevin Durant would finish with a career-best 52 points, a season high in the NBA. More importantly for the Thunder, they are an NBA-best 32-8.
