Westbrook ties Robertson's record, Wizards beat Pacers

  Westbrook ties Robertson's record, Wizards beat Pacers INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — When the final buzzer sounded Saturday night, Russell Westbrook grabbed the ball, jogged to the baseline and waved to the crowd. A few moments after joining Oscar Robertson as the NBA's career triple-doubles leader with 181, he celebrated the milestone with his teammates and his opponents. It was quite a show. Westbrook finished with 33 points, 19 rebounds and 15 assists, and made two free throws with a second left to give Washington a 133-132 overtime victory over Indiana. Heck, he even blocked the Pacers' final shot before grabbing the ball.“I love his spirit, his determination," coach Scott Brooks said.

Doug McDermott added a game-high 31 points, while Oshae Brissett (16 points and 13 rebounds) and Caris Levert (25 points) made solid contributions on the road against the Thunder.

Kawhi Leonard returned from a five-game absence but the Los Angeles Clippers went down 110-104 to the visiting Denver Nuggets.

Back on the court following a foot problem, two-time champion Leonard put up 16 points, six assists and five rebounds as the Clippers were upstaged by Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets.

Kawhi sprinted headlong past center court. Only a backpedaling Nikola Mirotic stood between Kawhi and the rim. Kawhi lifted off a foot inside the free-throw line, switching the ball from right hand to left mid-stride. Mirotic thought about contesting, and then decided against it. The Bulls ran their winning streak to three games with victories over the Pacers and Raptors to start the week, but finished things off with losses to the Hawks and Wolves. Zach LaVine showcased his offensive versatility by dishing out 13 assists in the win over Toronto, then dropping 50 points the very next night in the loss to Atlanta.

Entering Thursday night, no team had ever come back from a 25- point halftime deficit to win an NBA playoff game. LeBron James took care of that. The Cavaliers trailed by as many as 26 points to the Pacers during Thursday' s Game 3, but set a playoff record by coming all the way back to win the game, 119-114. The 26- point comeback tied the largest ever in NBA history (tied with the 2012 Clippers against the Memphis Grizzlies) and the 25- point halftime deficit was the largest ever overcome.

LaMelo Ball also made a return after a 21-game injury lay-off, resuming his Rookie of the Year push with 11 points, eight assists, seven rebounds, two blocks and a steal in the Charlotte Hornets' 107-94 win against the Detroit Pistons.

Williamson and Ball star as Pelicans soar, Jazz prevail

Zion Williamson had 37 points on 14-for-17 shooting while tallying nine rebounds and eight assists in the New Orleans Pelicans' 140-136 overtime success against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Lonzo Ball chipped in with a career-high 33 points as the Pelicans overcame a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter. Karl-Anthony Towns' double-double of 28 points and 14 rebounds was not enough for the Pelicans.

The Utah Jazz reclaimed top spot in the Western Conference and the best record in the NBA thanks to a 106-102 win against the Toronto Raptors. Bojan Bogdanovic's 34 points fuelled the Jazz, who moved half a game clear of the Phoenix Suns atop the west. Fred VanVleet's 30 points were not enough for the visiting Raptors.

Nikola Jokic is the best passing center in NBA history , and his talent was on full display as the Denver Nuggets defeated the Los Angeles Clippers over seven games in the second round of the 2020 NBA Playoffs. Jokic burned the Clippers again and again with his passing ability, especially when they doubled him in the post. Some of Jokic ’ s less flashy passes were just as impressive: Jokic pass angle/timing variouity is not just coming from advanced read ability. I think he calculate(or eye gazing #) at least 3times while this short moment.

Trae Young registered 33 points and Clint Capela (20 points and 11 rebounds) and John Collins (13 points and 10 rebounds) had double-doubles for the Atlanta Hawks, who defeated the Chicago Bulls 108-97.

The two-time MVP has 32 30-point games this season – 15 in his last 17 appearances.

Roby and Maledon headline Thunder woes

On a humiliating day for the Thunder, Isaiah Roby and Theo Maledon were particularly disappointing. Roby was one-for-eight shooting, missing all three of his attempts from beyond the arc for two points. Thunder team-mate Maledon made two of 14 shots from the field, including one of his eight three-points efforts as he finished with eight points.

Mavs call game

The Dallas Mavericks beat the Washington Wizards 125-124. Doncic posted 31 points, a career-high 20 assists and 12 rebounds for his fourth game in NBA history with 30-plus points, 10-plus rebounds and 20-plus assists to join Magic Johnson, Russell Westbrook and Oscar Robertson as the only players to do so. Westbrook (42 points and 10 rebounds) and Bradley Beal (29 points) were not enough to lift the Wizards.
