March 25, 2015
Be sure to get your NBA fill during tonight’s hefty 13-game set, as there’s just one game tomorrow night. Before we get settled, let’s take our daily look around the league and see what everyone’s been up to.
Lakers-Thunder: Russell Westbrook came into last night’s home game against the Lakers focused, and he ended up with a double-double for his efforts. He put up 27 points and 11 assists in the 127-117 win, taking over the game late to stop an L.A. comeback.
Enes Kanter had another big effort as well, with 25 points and 16 rebounds. He’s scored 52 and put up 28 boards in his last two outings.

Bucks-Heat: As long as you’re not a Miami fan, this was a great game. Khris Middleton nailed a 3-pointer at the buzzer last night in Milwaukee against the Heat, giving the Bucks an 89-88 comeback win that was nothing short of epic.
Milwaukee outscored Miami 28-9 in the fourth quarter, with Jerryd Bayless winning a key jump ball with just under 11 seconds left that set up the game-winning sequence.
The Bucks closed on an 18-3 run.
Mavs-Spurs: In another comeback victory, the Mavericks put on a rally to defeat the defending champion Spurs 101-94 last night in Dallas.
Monta Ellis posted a season-high 38 points in the win, hitting 16-of-27 shots. That was a mirror image of his ugly 4-of-22 outing on Sunday at Phoenix.
Dirk Nowitzki added a double-double here on 15 points and 13 rebounds.
Kings-Sixers: DeMarcus Cousins was in full effect last night against the Sixers, leading the team in both points (33) and rebounds (17). He also had four steals and four blocks in the 107-106 win.
This was the 16th straight road loss for the Sixers.
This was a tale of two halves for Sacramento, who trailed 70-63 at halftime and used a big third quarter to get back in it.
