Andrew Bogut returned in this game after not playing for nearly three months. The Warriors then used a 10-0 run in the fourth quarter to put Toronto away. David Lee led Golden State with 21 points, 12 boards, and seven assists. The returning Bogut went for 12 points and eight boards in 24 minutes. They would lose Stephen Curry to yet another ankle injury, however.
Rudy Gay made a wacky fadeaway inside the key with 13.3 seconds to put the Grizzlies up by one. After two Gay free throws, the Sixers had a chance to tie the game with a three-pointer but Nick Young’s attempt was completely erased by Marc Gasol. Gasol was on fire throughout the whole game, ending the contest with 27 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists.
Washington’s Martell Webster converted a difficult bank shot with 7.9 seconds left to tie the game at 94. Then a poised Isaiah Thomas got into the lane and made a go-ahead floater with one second left. With the Wizards having no timeouts, the Kings easily picked the pass off from the backcourt. Thomas would end up with 22 points to lead the Kings while the Wiz wasted a great performance from Emeka Okafor, who had 23 points and 15 boards.
The Nets shot lights out from three, converting 13-29 from behind the arc. Deron Williams went for 20 points as Brooklyn got back to their winning ways, despite the fact that the Nets turned the ball over 20 times.
The Bench Mob of the Bulls took care of business as Charlotte suffered another loss and go to a league-worst 11-33. Jimmy Butler had 19 points while Nate Robinson scored 15 to lift Chicago to a victory.
Andre Iguodala stripped Paul George in Indiana’s potential game-winning possession and called timeout with 0.5 seconds left. Then on the inbounds play for Denver, George was called for the foul on Iguodala during a Nuggets lob attempt. After Iguodala made the first free throw, he missed the second on purpose to run the clock out and secure the victory. Gallinari led Denver with 27 points.
I think the final score explains it all on how much the Rockets plastered the Jazz last night. It’s the worst loss the Jazz ever received at home. The Rockets led as many as 50 points in this contest. James Harden let Houston with 25 points.
