The biggest handicap betting news is how Russell Westbrook did what he always did throughout the season and carried the Oklahoma City Thunder past King James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, the other teams also gave many NBA fans many points of conversation.
Houston Rockets 107-95 Charlotte Hornets
James Harden shines once again as his near triple-double lifted the Houston Rockets past the Charlotte Hornets. Nicolas Batum was also close to a triple-double of his own, but the Hornets didn’t have an established scorer to help them close the gap in the game’s dying minutes.
Philadelphia 76ers 112-111 Orlando Magic
The Amway Center crowd was a witness to a heartbreaker as T.J. McConnell’s pull-up jumper helped the Embiid-less Sixers scrape past the Orlando Magic. Despite missing Aaron Gordon, Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier did great in leading the Magic. Dario Saric did most of the heroics as Jahlil Okafor hardly made his presence felt.
Cleveland Cavaliers 109-118 Oklahoma City Thunder
The biggest game of the night ended in a surprising rout as LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers failed to stop Russell Westbrook’s triple-double from happening. Steven Adams also had a great night, but Westbrook’s gravity definitely attracted the Cleveland defence away from him and the rest of the Thunder.
Utah Jazz 105-112 Dallas Mavericks
If it wasn’t for Dirk Nowitzki’s clutch jumper, the Utah Jazz would have been relishing on another victory. It was thanks to his heroics that Harrison Barnes and the rest of the young Mavericks got enough time and momentum to turn things around and stop an especially deadly Gordon Hayward from winning the game for the visitors.
Boston Celtics 120-111 Portland Trail Blazers
This game was an entertaining match that saw the home team lead by as much as 17 in the second quarter and the Celtics perfectly executing their adjustments in the second half. A late run by the C’s led them past great games from CJ McCollum, Damian Lillard and Al-Farouq Aminu to win by nine points.
