Celtics hang on for OT win
For a few minutes it looked like the Mavericks were going to be the unlikely team to end the Celtics' winning streak, but Kyrie Irving was just too much in the end. He scored 47 points and led the Celtics to the overtime win, their 16th straight. It was the fourth-highest scoring night of Irving's career.
Cavs dominate from the start
LeBron set the tone with 16 first-quarter points and the Cavs never looked back en route to a 28-point win in Detroit. That's five wins in a row for the Cavs, who appear to be hitting their stride after early-season struggles.
Embiid earns the Oscar
Cousins ejected for elbow
Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins got a little too aggressive trying to protect the ball and elbowed Russell Westbrook, which earned him a third-quarter ejection.
Well that's one way to throw a lob
So that's why they call him 'The Greek Freak'
Magic on both ends
When defense turns into offense, it's a thing of beauty. Bismack Biyombo picked up the block for the Magic, then his teammates took care of the rest.
Westbrook gets nasty
You don't want to see Paul George and Russell Westbrook running toward you on the fast break. The Pelicans found out the hard way.
Now that's a buzzer beater
Why put up a wild shot when you can just dribble uncontested straight to the rim? Blake Griffin got his easiest basket of the night at the end of the first half.
- With 25 points and 20 rebounds in Monday's win over the Timberwolves, Dwight Howard became the first Hornet since Anthony Mason in 1996 to record a 20-point, 20-rebound game.
