Brooklyn and New York games called off but still a dramatic night in the NBA

Published Add your comment

With a large majority of the North-east of America shut down by what is being called the Blizzard of 2015, the NBA was also made to suffer with two matches postponed.

The Brooklyn Nets home game with the Portland Trail Blazers and the Sacramento Kings visit to the New York Knicks were both shut down by the poor weather conditions.

There were still five games played through the night however with the LA Clippers the team that grabbed all the headlines.

The Clippers came away with a dramatic 102-98 victory in their home game with the Denver Nuggets.

The Clippers may have got the all important victory to extend their winning streak but it was far from easy.


The game was tight most of the way but the Nuggets held an eight point lead over the Clippers as they entered the fourth quarter.

Jamal Crawford may not have been amongst the starters for LA but he was the most crucial player in the game for the Clippers.

Crawford came away with 23 points and outscored everyone else who stepped on the court tonight.

The Clippers now move to five straight wins and are about to embark on a remarkable eight game road trip starting at the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.

As for the Nuggets, they have now lost seven straight and with trips to the New Orleans Pelicans and Memphis Grizzlies in their next two games, it doesn't get any easy for them.

Another rout for the Sixers

When the New Orleans Pelicans welcomed the Philadelphia 76ers tonight, the result should have been an obvious Pelicans win, and thats what we got.

The Pelicans got the dominant 99-74 win and moved to four straight wins as they claimed a huge 25 point victory.

The Sixers however are now on a six game losing streak and will welcome the Detroit Pistons to the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night.

Durant didn't matter

The Oklahoma City Thunder were without NBA MVP Kevin Durant as they lined up for their match with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

It proved not to matter as the Thunder got the 92-84 win in the end and stopped a two game losing streak.

Despite rookie Andrew Wiggins scoring 23 points in the game the Wolves tasted defeat for the fifth time in a row.

Celtics do it on the road

The only road team to pick up a victory tonight saw the Boston Celtics claim a nine point win over the Utah Jazz.

The Celtics have now won three of their last four with many thanks to Tayshaun Prince's 19 points tonight.

The Jazz had Gordon Howard reach 26 points and outscore everyone else tonight but it wasn't enough to prevent them ending their two game winning streak.

Memphis continue to grow

The Memphis Grizzlies impressive season continued as they won their third game in a row and moved to 32-12 on the season.

The Grizzlies beat the Orlando Magic 103-94 largely due to Zach Randolph's 24 points which helped condemn the Magic to another loss.

The magic are now without a win in their last six games after losing to the Grizzlies for the second time in this losing streak.
