Nicholas Batum played a huge role in the Blazers’ 4th quarter rally against the Heat.
Portland Trailblazers swingman Wesley Matthews knocked down back-to-back three-pointers in the final minute of regulation to lift the home team to a 92-90 victory. The Blazers won for the 12th time in their last 15 games, despite shooting 37 percent from the floor.
Pacers 81 – Knicks 76 – Paul George led the Pacers with 24 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists. Both teams struggled from the field. The Knicks were without Carmelo Anthony who was serving a one-game suspension. J.R. Smith led New York with 25 points and Tyson Chandler grabbed 15 boards.
Blazers 92 – Heat 90 – Chris Bosh led the Heat with 29 points. LeBron James’ streak in which he scored 20 or more points ended at 33 games. James scored 15 points grabbed 10 rebounds and had 9 assists. Nicholas Batum led Portland with 28 points. LaMarcus Aldridge grabbed a game-high 15 rebounds.
Mavericks 117 – Kings 112 – DeMarcus Cousins’ 29 point effort was overshadowed by his ejection in overtime for shoving the Mavericks’ Vince Carter in the face. The Kings played well despite the distractions surrounding the team. O.J. Mayo led Dallas with 24 points.
