Mavs lose on Romo night; Lawson has triple-double; Thunder win without Russ

Hawks (43-38) 103, Hornets (36-46) 76

Jeremy Lamb (21/5/1) was the only player on either team to play over 30 minutes. This was a meaningless game for the Hornets, who are out of playoff contention and the playoff-bound Hawks got their starters some rest in the second half. Atlanta shot 51.9 percent while Charlotte shot just 33.0 percent in the game.

Thunder (47-34) 100, Timberwolves (31-50) 98

Russell Westbrook finally sat out a game for rest purposes. In his absence, Victor Oladipo (20/9/6) got the job done, going 8-of-16 in the primary scorer’s role. Karl-Anthony Towns (26/12/1) shot 10-for-20 from the field, but co-star Andrew Wiggins (18/3/4) struggled, going just 7-of-22 in the loss.

Nuggets (39-42) 109, Mavericks (32-49) 91

Tony Romo didn’t get on the court to the dismay of the home fans. In what was essentially a meaningless game, Dirk Nowitzki (21/8/1) turned in a solid performance in front of the home fans. Gary Harris (20/8/8) led the way in a well-rounded effort for the Nuggets. A combined 82 three-pointers were attempted in the game, as Denver went 18-for-42 and Dallas went 12-for-40 from deep.

Lakers (26-55) 108, Pelicans (33-48) 96

DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis both sat out for the Pelicans. Shockingly, Metta World Peace (18/4/1) led the Lakers in scoring, going 7-for-17 shooting in what was a completely out-of-the-blue output. Los Angeles gained the advantage in the third quarter, when they outscored New Orleans 28-20.

Kings (32-49) 129, Suns (24-58) 104

Suns leading scorer Devin Booker sat this game out for rest purposes. Marquese Chriss (22/7/0) and Tyler Ulis (27/4/6) led the way in his absence for Phoenix, who got outscored 30-14 in the second quarter. Meanwhile, eight Kings scored in double-figures, led by Buddy Hield (30/6/0), who went 12-for-20 from the floor, and Ty Lawson (22/11/12), who posted a triple-double in the victory.
