2/4/2012-Boston and OKC both have big wins against top rivals
The Dynamic Duo for the Oklahoma City dominated the Chicago Bulls as they easily encountered for the Eastern Conference leaders. Westbrook had 27 points while Kevin Durant closed in on Kobe Bryant for the scoring leader on the season with 27 points and 10 rebounds.
All five starters scored 10 points or more as the Boston Celtics had a huge win against the Miami Heat, winning by 19 points. Rajon Rondo had a big triple double with 16 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds. Paul Pierce had 23 points in the win.
With Nene and Trevor Booker out, the Washington Wizards were unable to beat the Toronto Raptors despite John Wall’s double double. Andrea Bargnani had 18 points and 8 rebounds for the Raptors
Arron Afflalo and Ty Lawson had 22 points and 25 respectively as the Denver Nuggets took down a Dwight Howard-less Orlando Magic Jameer Nelson led both teams with 27 points and 5 assists, but it wasn’t enough for the Magic to win.
Danny Granger’s 32 points pulled the Indiana Pacers over the Houston Rockets in overtime. Courtney Lee had 20 points while Goran Dragic had 22 points and 6 assists in the two point loss.
Jared Dudley had 21 points and Steve Nash had 14 assists as the Phoenix Suns defeated the New Orleans Hornets, despite Grant Hill not playing. Marco Bellinelli led the Hornets with 14 points.
In a match up of two of the best forwards in the NBA, Kevin Love’s Minnesota Timberwolves fell to LaMarcus Aldridge’s Portland Trailblazers. Aldridge had 26 points while Nicolas Batum had 24.
Mr Bryant, take a bow. Barely 24 hours after his horrible performance against the Hornets, Bryant scored 40 points in the Lakers win over the Golden State Warriors. Ramon Sessions seems to be fitting in well with the Lakers as well, scoring 23 points and dishing out 9 assists. David Lee had 27 but shot the ball poorly.
