Nets Get Their Revenge Against Celtics 112-107

There is nothing more comforting than playing at home.

Just two days ago, Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets were showered in boos during Wednesday’s 121-110 road loss to the Boston Celtics as Irving returned to Boston for the first time since spurning the franchise for the Nets in free agency.

Friday afternoon was a much different story as the Nets got their revenge in front of a much more Irving-friendly home crowd Friday, beating the Celtics 112-107.

Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie was outstanding, scoring 32 points and dishing out 11 assists to lead the way for Brooklyn in the absence of Kyrie Irving, who missed his eighth straight game due to a shoulder injury.

Big man Jarrett Allen also recorded a double-double for the Nets of 14 points and 11 rebounds.

After scoring a season-high 39 against Brooklyn on Wednesday, Celtics guard Kemba Walker only scored 17 points on an inefficient 6-19 shooting. Forward Jayson Tatum stepped up for Boston, scoring 26 points along with 9 rebounds.

The Nets were in control for the majority of the game, getting out to 14 point leads in both the first and the third quarter and withstanding Boston’s comeback attempts in the second and fourth periods.

As the Nets and Celtics split their series at 1-1 in a potential playoff matchup, both teams look like they could be a real threat to make some noise in the Eastern Conference playoffs come April.

Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic has taken the league by storm, becoming one of the frontrunners for the NBA MVP award this season.

However, Doncic’s MVP campaign will be halted after suffering a right ankle sprain during the Mavericks’ 122-118 loss to the Miami Heat.

Doncic landed on Miami Heat guard Kendrick Nunn’s foot just two minutes into Saturday’s contest and immediately left the game.

The reigning Rookie of the Year leads the NBA with 8 triple-doubles this season while averaging 29.3 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 8.9 assists per game.

The Mavericks have won 11 out of their last 13 games, and hope to continue their hot streak while their leader recovered on the sidelines.

Houston Rockets guard James Harden has been on fire all season and shows no signs of slowing down.

Harden had his second straight game of 50+ points and 10+ three-pointers as the Rockets blowout the Orlando Magic 130-107 on Friday’s contest.

Harden, who leads the NBA in scoring at 39.3 points per game, scorched the Magic’s defense with 55 points and 10-15 shooting from the three-point arc.

The scoring outburst comes just two days after Harden scored 54 points on 10 three-pointers in Wednesday’s win over the Cavaliers.

The Rockets also shot 22-39 from three as a team, setting a franchise record for the most three-point makes by an Orlando opponent.

The Magic never had a chance in the contest and were unable to close the gap after a 10-point halftime deficit.

Orlando guard Evan Fournier was the lone bright spot, leading the team with 27 points.

With massive scoring efforts night after night, Harden has once again returned himself to the MVP conversation, hoping to win the award for the second time since 2018.

Lebron James, Anthony Davis Lead Lakers Over Heat

With the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat being two of the NBA’s hottest teams this season, their matchup had all the makings of a heavyweight fight.

The results were anything but disappointing.

On Friday night, All-NBA forwards Lebron James and Anthony Davis cooled off the Heat in the Lakers’ 113-110 road victory, snapping Miami’s home winning streak at 11.

James flirted with a triple-double, recording 28 points, 12 assists, and 9 rebounds, while Davis provided 33 points and 10 rebounds.

The duo was vital down the stretch, each making critical plays to stunt Miami’s comeback efforts.

Heat forward Jimmy Butler’s three-point attempt to tie narrowly missed in the final seconds. However, the NBA would announce after the game Butler was fouled twice on the play.

Butler lead Miami in scoring with 23 points, while Derrick Jones Jr. added 17 points and some high-flying dunks.

The Lakers are now tied with the Milwaukee Bucks for the overall record in the NBA at 23-3.

With the combination of James and Davis being nearly unstoppable this season, the Lakers have become the favorite for this year’s NBA title.
