Thunder-Wizards: The Thunder posted a big 125-101 victory last night over the Wizards in Washington, but the big storyline here belongs to Kevin Durant and his injured leg.
Durant came down awkwardly in the first half, straining his hamstring. He would leave at halftime.
With Durant out, Russell Westbrook took over and logged a triple-double on 22 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds.
The Thunder have a couple of days off before their next game, so Durant will get some time to rest. He’ll have an MRI today.
Lakers-Heat: The Heat became the latest team to top the flailing Lakers on their east-coast trip, taking a 101-88 victory last night in Miami. Chris Bosh was instrumental in this one, logging 30 points (a season high) and 11 rebounds. Hassan Whiteside also doubled up on 19 points and 15 rebounds. Luol Deng (14 points) and Dwyane Wade (12 points) also chipped in.
Kobe Bryant had to sit this one out due to a back injury.
Knicks-Raptors: All people will be talking about today concerning the Knicks’ 111-109 victory over the Raptors last night in Toronto is one key play late in the game. The referees missed Carmelo Anthony stepping out of bounds on a crucial play late in the fourth, instead calling a foul on Toronto. It was a key play, but the Raptors still had a chance to tie things up late on a missed reverse layup.
This was the first home loss for the Raptors and the Knicks’ third road win in four games this season.
