LeBron posted 18 points and 11 assists here, while Kyrie Irving put up 24 points to lead the way.

Nets-Clippers: The Nets are coming off a dismal month in January, but they got things going last night against the Clippers. The team rallied late to post a 102-100 win at home, with Jarrett Jack completing the comeback with just over one second left in the fourth.
Brook Lopez put up 24 points here, and Joe Johnson added 22. The victory ended a four-game losing streak for them.
On the other side, DeAndre Jordan put up 22 points and 20 rebounds in the losing effort.
Pelicans-Hawks: This was the game everyone was talking about last night. The Pelicans defended their home court, denying the Hawks their 20th win in a row with a 115-100 victory. It was just Atlanta’s third loss in the last 36 games.
Anthony Davis returned from injury to put up 29 points and 13 rebounds, putting the Pelicans at 26-22 on the season.
Thunder-Magic: Russell Westbrook was definitely on his game last night against the Magic. He posted 25 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds in the 104-97 victory in Oklahoma City. It was his second triple-double of the year and the 10th of his career.
Kevin Durant was out once again with a sprained toe and has appeared in just 22 games thus far for the Thunder. Dion Waiters would add 24 points to the cause.
