The Thunder got their second win after Kyle Lowry left the game with a badly rolled ankle. The Magic stuck with the Bulls, but Chicago finished it off.
Thunder 108, Raptors 88
OKC had its game well in hand before Kyle Lowry badly rolled his ankle and left Tuesday's game, but that pretty much ended the contest in the first half. Good thing Russell Westbrook came out to play; he had 19 points on 5-12 shooting with eight assists and one turnover. Kevin Martin stayed strong with 15 points on 4-9 shooting.
Bulls 99, Magic 93
Orlando continues to play much better than most of us thought it would, but it fell short against Chicago on Tuesday. The Bulls had 27 assists on 40 made field goals, and no Bulls had more than six of those dimes. A lovely well-rounded offense performance. Arron Afflalo had 19 shooting possessions and produced 28 points. Big Baby Davis had 24 shooting possessions and produced 16 points. Might be time for a recall election.
Nuggets 109, Pistons 97
Greg Monroe had a darned good game (27-10), but Detroit is not good. Their starting backcourt (Rodney Stuckey and Brandon Knight) shot 6-23 and are shooting a combined 18-81 (22 percent) this season. Welp.
