Sixers-Nets: The Sixers won a game last night, which should be front-page news these days. Michael Carter-Williams passed off to Nerlens Noel for the finishing dunk as time wound down, capping a 90-88 victory. It was Philly’s first win against Brooklyn since late December of 2013. They had lost their last five in Brooklyn.
Robert Covington posted 20 points, while Luc Richard Mbah a Moute put up 16 of his own. The Sixers now have six wins on the year.

Thunder-Jazz: Dion Waiters nailed a 3-pointer late in the game against the Jazz last night in Oklahoma City, and the Thunder would go on to win 99-94.
Kevin Durant put up 32 points in this one, while Russell Westbrook managed 25 points and 12 assists.
The Thunder needed this win, as they had dropped their previous two by 47 points combined.
Gordon Hayward put up 27 points in the losing effort for the Jazz.
Spurs-Suns: The Spurs were without Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker last night against the Suns, but were able to put up a 100-95 victory on the strength of a 20-point effort from Danny Green.
With the win, San Antonio moved into seventh place in the loaded Western Conference.
The key to this one was the Spurs’ 41 points in the fourth quarter. It was a season-high for them, and helped them overcome blowing a 14-point lead.
Warriors-Cavaliers: The Cavaliers aren’t doing so well without LeBron James these days. They dropped another game last night, this one against the Warriors by a margin of 112-94.
Klay Thompson posted 24 points while his partner in crime Stephen Curry managed 23 points and 10 assists. The win checked off a perfect six-game home-stand for Golden State.
The Warriors are now 29-5 and not slowing down anytime soon.
