28/3/2012- Ellis plays big for Bucks as the Thunder roll on
Philadelphia scored a big win over the lottery bound Cleveland Cavaliers, winning by 18 points. With Andre Igoudala still out with a knee injury, replacement Jodie Meeks well and truly stood tall, scoring 31 points including 7-10 from the land of the three. Anthony Parker led the Cavs with 14 points.
Playoff hopefuls Milwaukee kept their chances alive with a win over the Atlanta Hawks. Despite a big 3rdquarter, the Hawks seemed to run out of
steam after their quadruple overtime win against the Jazz. Monta Ellis
continued to perform for his new home with 33 points and 8 assists while Josh Smith had a near triple double with 30 points, 18 boards and 5 assists.
Starting in the place of Spanish big man Marc Gasol, Dante Cunningham had a double double to lead the Memphis Grizzlies over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Kevin Love continued his ridiculous run of form with 28 points and 11 rebounds, while Derrick Williams had 14 points.
Dirk Nowitzki’s 21 points were enough for the Dallas Mavericks to beat Texan rivals Houston by 9 points. Luis Scola had a good game for the Rockets, scoring 22 points in the loss. Jason Terry scored 14 off the bench for the Mavs while Goran Dragic had 17 for the Rockets.
Shannon Brown’s 32 points and Marcin Gortat’s 21 points and 14 rebounds were not enough to stop the concerted efforts of two old faces in Parker and Duncan. Duncan had 26 points and 11 rebounds to lead the way for the Spurs whilst Tony Parker had 24 and 8 assists in the win.
James Harden only missed one shot, scoring 21 points, as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Portland Trailblazers. Kevin Durant had 25, but took a back seat to Russel Westbrook who had 32, as the Big Three out West kept on rolling.
The LA Lakers have emerged triumphant from the Californian clash with Kobe Bryant reacting positively to his benching scoring 30 points. Ramon Sessions got the start, and Matt Barnes scored 18 points off the bench for LA. David Lee led the Warriors with 23 points.
