Doncic shines in return to lineup
Luka Doncic sat out Sunday's game with a hip injury, but the Mavericks' insistence that it was minor proved to be correct. Back in action against the Trail Blazers, Doncic finished with 21 points and nine rebounds, leading the Mavericks to their eighth straight home win. Overall, Dallas has now won 10 of its last 13 games.
Jazz hit franchise record 20 3-pointers in win over Spurs
The Jazz destroyed the Spurs on Tuesday night, winning by a whopping 34 points. They did so on the back of a fantastic team-wide shooting performance, raining in a franchise record 20 3-pointers. Donovan Mitchell led the way with four triples, and all 10 players who attempted a 3 made at least one.
Turner leads Pacers past Bulls
With Victor Oladipo sidelined indefinitely, the Pacers need someone to step up. Against the Bulls, it was Myles Turner. The big man finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds, three assists and five blocks to help the Pacers past the Bulls.

Adebayo gets it done on both ends
Bam Adebayo showed off his athleticism against the Magic with a beautiful sequence on both ends of the floor. First, he rose up for a massive block with both hands, then ran the court and soared for a putback slam.
DSJ gets crafty on the break
Dennis Smith Jr. broke out his tricks on the fastbreak against the Trail Blazers. As he cut inside towards the middle of the floor, he went between his legs with just one hand, then flipped in the scoop layup plus the foul.
Holiday banks in corner 3
Justin Holiday connected on one of the rarest shots in basketball early in the first quarter against the Pacers. Deep in the corner, Holiday launched a 3-pointer that somehow went in off the glass.
