Isaiah Thomas, Russell Westbrook, George Hill as well as wing players like Jimmy Butler and Paul George all impressed betting websites and online gambling circles with their sensational performances in Sunday’s NBA games.
Indeed, with these players always ready to delight, sports betting in the league has been even better and more exciting.
New York Knicks 109-123 Indiana Pacers
Playing back-to-back games (and their third in four days) took a toll on the Knicks as they succumbed to the Pacers, even trailing by as much as 29 points in the game. A 19-point lead at the end of the second half paved the way for Indiana to a comfortable victory with Paul George and Jeff Teague contributing 19 points apiece.
New Orleans Pelicans 108-117 Boston Celtics
Isaiah Thomas and Marcus Smart torched Anthony Davis and the Pelicans from beyond the arc, combining for 11 of the Celtics 18 made three-pointers. Thomas finished the game with 38 points while Smart added 22 to render Davis’ double-double useless.
Denver Nuggets 106-121 Oklahoma City Thunder
A much-improved second half helped the Thunder repulse the Jokic-less Nuggets, with Russell Westbrook seizing his 17th triple-double of the season. Oklahoma also dominated on the defensive end as they registered a total of 11 blocks and eight steals while also limiting Denver to just 40 percent shooting.
Utah Jazz 94-92 Minnesota Timberwolves
Down by 11 entering the final period, Utah staged a fourth-quarter comeback to edge and frustrate Tom Thibodeau’s Minnesota. George Hill scored 10 of his 19 points in the last frame to lead the Jazz while Rudy Gobert chipped in 13 rebounds and 12 points, including the game-winning tip layup shot with 27.5 seconds remaining.
Toronto Raptors 118-123 Chicago Bulls
Jimmy Butler’s 42 points – seven of which came from overtime – proved to be too much for Toronto despite a 36-point explosion from DeMar DeRozan. The Bulls clawed their way back in the fourth to extend the game, and they made sure to finish the job by taking advantage of their ability to get to the foul line.
Atlanta Hawks 97-82 Dallas Mavericks
Atlanta, behind a balanced offence powered by Tim Hardaway Jr. and Dennis Schroder, dropped the Mavericks to their second straight loss and 26th overall. Harrison Barnes gave it his all for the Mavericks, but Deron Williams and Wesley Matthews failed to back him on racking up more points.
Charlotte Hornets 85-102 San Antonio Spurs
It was a clinical defensive display from the Spurs as they held the Hornets to just 85 points and 75 field goal attempts. Both teams have five players scoring in double figures, but San Antonio had the better shooting clip led by Davis Bertans who recorded 21 points on 83.3 field goal percentage.
