Kyrie Irving led Cleveland past OKC, despite a near triple-double from Kevin Durant.

A look at some of the key NBA match-ups from February 27 

Cleveland 114, Oklahoma City 104

Kyrie Irving scored 31 points for the Cavaliers, leading five Cavs in double figures scoring.

Jarrett Jack had 21, and Spencer Hawes had 19, including 3-of-6 from three point range in his fourth game with Cleveland since being acquired from Philadelphia at the trade deadline. 

Hawes is 8-of-17 from three (47%) since arriving in the trade.

The NBA's leading scorer Kevind Durant had 28 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, narrowly missing a triple-double.

Russell Westbrook added 24 points and nine assists as he continues to work his way back into shape from a knee injury that kept him out nearly two months.

Chicago 103, Golden State 83

The Chicago Bulls have now won seven of their last eight games after stomping the Golden State Warriors.

Taj Gibson led the way with 21 points off the bench, and Joakim Noah had 17 rebounds. Its the 14th time this season Noah has had 15 or more rebounds in a game.

Chicago was helped by a poor shooting night from Golden State, who managed just 36% shooting. 

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined to shoot just 5-of-18, and scored 13 points. 

San Antonio 120, Detroit 110

Marco Belinelli connected on 4-of-4 from three point range and led eight Spurs in double figures with 20 points, as San Antonio came up with its third win in four games since Tony Parker went out of the lineup. Parker is still out indefinitely.

Tim Duncan added 13 points and nine rebounds in 27 minutes.

Andre Drummond scored 16 points and grabbed 17 boards in the loss. 

With the win, the Spurs pulled to within a game and a half of Oklahoma City for the top spot in the west.
