Holiday keeps Pelicans' streak alive

Jrue Holiday and the Pelicans have won eight in a row. Holiday finished with 30 points and Anthony Davis added another 23 points in a dominant performance. The Pelicans were up by so much that they had time to try to fish Rajon Rondo a triple-double in the final minutes. He came up just short with 14 points, 10 assists, and nine rebounds.

Giannis leads Milwaukee in comeback

The Bucks were down 20 points twice to the 76ers. Both times they came back and players such as Giannis Antetokounmpo were the difference. He finished with 35 points in the win.

Oladipo explodes in win

Victor Oladipo was the difference-maker for the Pacers in a close win over the Wizards. His 33-point effort was another great moment in his spectacular season.

Bucks' give-and-go opens up Giannis

Giannis Antetokounmpo had a nice dunk thanks to this neat give-and-go play by the Bucks.

Labissiere wins it for the Kings

Skal Labissiere came up clutch for the Kings and knocked off the Knicks with this game-winner. Sacramento continues to show up in the clutch.

LeVert has career night

Caris LeVert and the Nets might have lost, but LeVert came away with a career-high 27 points.

Beal has career passing night

Bradley Beal has picked up a large creation role when John Wall had knee surgery. He showed some of that skill in an 11-assist performance Sunday.

Prince hits go-ahead bucket for Hawks

Taurean Prince had ice in his veins when he hit the go-ahead basket to win it for the Hawks.

Williams seals the deal

Lou Williams came up big for the Clippers once again. His clutch heroics sealed it for Los Angeles in the end.

Hawks and Suns scuffle

A minor scuffle broke out between the Hawks and Suns. The result of the fight led to Elfrid Payton and Isaiah Taylor being ejected from the game. What was odd to see is that this all started because Taurean Prince had some trash talk for Josh Jackson after a goaltending call.

Smith Jr. finds Powell

Dennis Smith Jr. hit Dwight Powell on a lob for a thunderous alley-oop dunk. The rookie continues to make plays as the season goes on.

Dirk has vintage night

Dirk Nowitzki went back into his time machine Sunday to score 23 points. These nights don't happen very often and need to be appreciated when they do.

Kanter rips down 11 boards in a half

Enes Kanter had a big first half. He pulled down 11 rebounds against the Kings on Sunday.
