27/3/2012- Stuckey knocks down winner, Cousins has big game, Melo returns to form
Ryan Anderson’s 7 threes paced the Orlando Magic as they took down the Toronto Raptors by 16 points. Dwight Howard also had a double double, scoring 23 points including 7-10 from the free throw line. Gary Forbes top scored for the Raptors with 21 points while Linas Kleiza had 18 points off the bench.
Rodney Stuckey’s buzzer beater led the Detroit Pistons over the Washington Wizards. The Wizards gave up yet another big lead to the Pistons, something that has become a habit over the past couple of games. Stuckey high scored for the Pistons with 24 points.
The Boston Celtics cruised to an easy win over the Charlotte Bobcats, carried by Paul Pierce’s 36 points and 10 rebounds. Garnett kept his good run going, scoring 24 points, looking like the Garnett of old. Gerald Henderson led the Cats with 21 points
Indiana had a big win against the drooping Miami Heat, winning by 15 points. Danny Granger, matching up with LeBron James, had 24 for the Pacers as all 5 starters scored in double figures. James and Wade both had 24 apiece.
After their big game against the Hawks, the Jazz accounted for the New Jersey Nets with ease. Millsap had 24 for Utah while Deron Williams had 17 and 11 assists for New Jersey, but shot poorly, only 7-21 from the field. Gerald Green had 20 off the bench.
Without Stoudemire or Lin in the line-up, Carmelo Anthony finally returned to form, scoring 28 points and pull down 12 rebounds as the Knicks beat the Bucks. The injury plagued Knicks fended off the surging Bucks for a little longer in the battle for the 8th seed in the East.
JaVale McGee got the start and helped deliver a big win for his team as the Denver Nuggets triumphed over the Chicago Bulls. Ty Lawson took advantage of Derrick Rose’s continued absence, scoring 27 points. Afflalo also played big, scoring 22 for the Nuggets. CJ Watson led the Bulls with 17 points.
DeMarcus Cousin’s monster game was not enough to lead the Kings over the Rockets as they were defeated in OT. The Rockets had a big team game, with 7 players scoring in double figures. Patrick Patterson led the way with 24 off the bench while new recruit Earl Boykins had 10 points.
A big game from Chris Paul was more than sufficient as the Clippers beat the Hornets by 12. Paul had 25 points and 10 assists, while Blake Griffin had 20 points as well as 7 rebounds and 5 assists.
