It was another busy night in The Association on this NBA Friday. Lots of close games.

Let's get into it.

NBA scores for Friday, Jan. 12

Cavs lose third in a row

The Cavaliers are struggling. They've lost three in a row and four of their last five with the win being a close game in Orlando. Cleveland had a 22-point lead over the Pacers but let Indiana back into it behind the work of Victor Oladipo, Darren Collison, and Lance Stephenson. Even with all of that, LeBron James had a chance to tie the game at the end, but he stepped out of bounds on his baseline drive. Cleveland has a lot of questions to answer with the Warriors coming up on MLK Day.

Davis scores 36 in Pelicans win

Anthony Davis had a huge 36 point game for the Pelicans and New Orleans is back above .500.

Curry out again, but Warriors win

The Warriors were without Stephen Curry again due to an ankle injury. They took on a pesky Bucks squad this time around and while Milwaukee managed to make it competitive, the Warriors closed them out toward the end. Golden State is back in the win column.

Bledsoe flies for a lob slam

The Bucks found Eric Bledsoe on the perfect lob pass for an open dunk.

James admits he stepped out of bounds

James initially didn't believe he stepped out of bounds, but he saw the video later and made a funny reference to a bad call made in favor of the Bucks.

Towns comes up short on triple-double

The Wolves are playing great basketball and Karl-Anthony Towns is a big reason why. He was one assist shy of a triple-double in their win over the Knicks.

Cousins chases down rejection

DeMarcus Cousins saved the Pelicans two points with this chase-down block.
