The Mavericks sharpshooter scored 8 points and grabbed six boards in about 20 minutes of action. In the end, it was the San Antonio Spurs feasting on 20 three-point field goals in a 129-91 victory.

Nets 95 – 76ers 92 – The Sixers continue to struggle with Jrue Holiday (24 pts. and 9 assists) back in the lineup. Joe Johnson led the Nets with 22 points.

Knicks 94 – Timberwolves 91 - Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 33 points. The underrated Nickola Pekovic led Minnesota with 21 points and 17 boards. 

Jazz 97 – Magic 93 - Paul Milsap scored 18 points and Al Jefferson grabbed 9 rebounds for the Jazz. Aaron Afflalo led the Magic with 20 points. Nick Vucevic led all players with 16 rebounds.
