Cavaliers (44-22) 128, Pistons (33-34) 96

The LeBron James show rolled on, as he only needed 28 minutes of game action to post a triple-double, tallying 16 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. Kyrie Irving also showed up big with 26 points and 6 assists. The Cavaliers were up 74-48 at halftime, so that was about all she wrote at that point.

Thunder (38-29) 122, Nets (12-54) 104

Russell Westbrook wasn't letting his team fall short against the team with the worst record in the NBA. Russ dominated with 25 points, 19 assists and 12 boards, willing his team to a solid win, but one that wasn't locked up until the 4th quarter. The Thunder outscored the Nets by 10 in the 4th, and it was enough to pull away when it mattered most.

Knicks (27-41) 87, Pacers (34-33) 81

This certainly won't help the Pacers' playoff chances. After seeing Kristaps Porzingis leave in the 2nd half, Carmelo Anthony took over and led the Knicks to an impressive comeback, as they trailed by 10 at half. Carmelo ended up with 22 points and 13 boards, but came up clutch in the 4th for the Knicks, and also helped to keep the small hope of a playoff berth alive. For the Pacers, it was Myles Turner leading the way with a solid 17 points and 12 boards.

Pelicans (27-40) 100, Trail Blazers (29-37) 77

It seems as though the dynamic duo of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins may be getting their groove a bit. While it was just one game, these two combined for 38 points and 24 rebounds. What was possibly the most impressive part of the win for the Pelicans was the fact that they got strong production from the bench and basically across the board to get this win. The Trail Blazers had just two players in double figures in Damian Lillard (29 points) and Shabazz Napier (10 points).

Warriors (53-14) 106, 76ers (24-43) 104

Talk about sweating this one out if you're a Warriors fan. Golden State trailed at halftime and even fell behind by 12 heading into the 4th quarter. Stephen Curry and company turned it on when it mattered most, though. Curry finished with 29 points, while Klay Thompson added on 28 and Draymond Green tallied an impressive stat line (20 points, 8 assists, 8 rebounds, 6 blocks, 4 steals). It was a tight one, and the Joel Embiid-less 76ers gave it their all, but fell just short in the end.
