NBA Morning Recap: Lakers, Celtics, Heat Win In Super Bowl Sunday

8400310Yes, it was Super Bowl Sunday yesterday. But before the big game, the NBA kept busy in the early afternoon with three good games. Let’s check out the action.

Los Angeles Lakers 98, Detroit Pistons 97

The Lakers led as many as 18 points but once again, their opponent came back to rally. It felt like the Lakers were giving the game to the Pistons but Detroit just couldn’t capitalize. Steve Nash even missed two foul shots at the end. However, Detroit’s attempt at an alley-oop inbounds play failed and Lakers escaped with a one-point win.

Pau Gasol, who replaced Dwight Howard in the line-up, went for 23 points and 10 rebounds. Nash ran the show for the most part as he ended with 10 assists. Kobe Bryant had 18 points and five assists. Greg Monroe led Detroit with 20 points and 12 rebounds.

After a Jamal Crawford offensive foul, the Clippers opted not to foul with 26 seconds left. Boston ran the clock all the way down before Pierce sank a three-pointer to put the game away. Crawford made a three at the buzzer for the final margin.

Pierce scored 22 points to lead the Celtics. Jamal Crawford and Eric Bledsoe each scored 23 for the Clippers. The streaky Celtics won their fourth game in a row while the Clippers are 2-5 in their last seven games.
