|A+||Another streak comes to Chicago and ends at the United Center. After ending the Miami Heat's 27-game winning streak a couple weeks ago, the Bulls ended the New York Knicks' 13-gamer on Thursday night. Nate Robinson had 35 points on 18 shots off the bench and put on every single belt that Steve Novak owns.|
|A||With the road victory in Oakland, the Thunder now have sole possession of the top seed in the Western Conference by a half game over the San Antonio Spurs. Durant's effort of 31 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists just obliterated the Warriors.|
|B||Though the Knicks lost this overtime thriller, you have to give them a lot of credit for being able to play the way they did. Both teams were banged up, but the Knicks didn't have a single big man available. Chris Copeland played center. J.R. Smith and Carmelo Anthony had a lot of points but needed a lot of shots to get them.|
|C+||Warriors needed this home win to keep the Houston Rockets away from the sixth seed. Instead, Houston is now just a half game out of avoiding the Spurs or Oklahoma City. They're typically a pretty decent defense but couldn't do much to stop Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka.|
