by

The Timberwolves they showed they are the best team in the West by crushing the Clippers in Los Angeles 121-100. Karl Anthony Towns with 24 and Anthony Edwards with 23 points led the team from Minnesota, while Rudy Gober had 17 points, 10 rebounds and 4 blocks. Paul George and Kawhi Leonard each had 18 for the hosts, with James Harden adding 17 more.

The Sixers beat Cleveland 123-121 ending the Cavaliers’ nine-game winning streak. Buddy Hield and Kelly Oubre each had 24 points, while Tyrese Maxey had 22 for Philadelphia, which played without the injured Joel Embiid. Donovan Mitchell had 36 points for the hosts, who nearly came back from 10 down in the final 1:25, but Darius Garland missed a late 3-pointer.

The Bulls they got past Atlanta 136-126 with DeRozan and Dosunmu each having 29 points. Bogdan Bogdanovic had 28 for the hosts, but Trae Young was held to 19 on 3/14 shooting.

The Rockets they beat the Knicks 105-103 thanks to Aaron Holiday’s two shots with 0.1 minutes to go, after a rather non-existent foul called on Jalen Brunson.

The Spurs they dismantled the Raptors 122-99 in Toronto with Victor Webanyama recording a historic triple-double. The French rookie did a triple double with 27 points, 14 rebounds and 10 blocks! It was the first triple-double with blocks since Jan. 22, 2021, when Clint Capela had 13 points, 19 rebounds and 10 blocks for the Hawks against the Timberwolves.

Luka Doncic had his 10th triple-double of the year, with 26 points, 15 assists and 11 rebounds, leading them Mavericks at 112-104 over the Wizards.
