Miami 113, Houston 110: Jeremy Lin made an awesome pass! But Jeremy Lin also airballed a wide-open shot that would have
sent the game to overtime given the Rockets the lead! What’s James Harden (22 points) up to? It’s only been seven games, but his field goal percentage is down six points; his 3-point percentage is down 13 percent.
Denver 100, Phoenix 110: I continue to be perplexed by the slow-starting Nuggets, but not JaVale McGee’s ups. Maybe the Suns aren’t that bad? Seven players in double figures, led by Goran Dragic’s 21 points.
Oklahoma City 92, Detroit 90: The Pistons led by 11 heading into the 4th quarter and then they collapsed to remain winless. When the Pistons played the Thunder a few days ago, rookie Andre Drummond had 22 points. Last night, he only played 12 minutes.
Utah 140, Toronto 133, 3 OT: Bizarre stat for the Jazz – only one player (Randy Foye) fouled out. Bizarre stat for the Raptors – DeMar DeRozan played 60 minutes (and scored 37 points).
Minnesota 90, Dallas 82: No Love, no Rubio, but the Wolves are 5-2. The lottery-bound Mavericks have lost three in a row. Derrick Williams with a nasty highlight, starting with this filthy spin move.
