The Philadelphia 76ers had an answer for Houston Rockets star James Harden in a huge win in the NBA on Monday.

While Harden managed to have his 20th consecutive game scoring 30 or more points, Philadelphia kept him under the dangerous 40-point mark and handed Houston their largest loss of the season, 121-93.

Joel Embiid finished with a team-high 32 points and 14 rebounds. He also played an important role on defense with Jimmy Butler sidelined because of a sprained wrist. Embiid finished with three blocks.

JJ Redick and Corey Brewer added 16 and 11 points, respectively. Landry Shamet had 18 points off the bench.

Harden scored 37 points in the Rockets' losing efforts. The 2018 MVP got off to a hot start and scored 27 in the first half.

The Rockets trailed by 15 points at the half and a 13-point performance in the third quarter put Houston in a deficit they could not bounce back from.

Gerald Green chipped in 18 points off the bench. Kenneth Faried added 13 in his first game with the Rockets.

 

Doncic dynamic but Mavericks lose

Luka Doncic became the second-youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double. The 19-year-old rookie finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in the Dallas Mavericks' 116-106 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Klay Thompson set an NBA record in the Golden State Warriors' rout of the Los Angeles Lakers. The four-time All-Star became the first player to make 10 consecutive three-pointers without a miss. He finished with 44 points in 26 minutes. Thompson was 17 of 20 from the field and 10 of 11 from long distance. Golden State went on to win 130-111.

Brooklyn Nets guard D'Angelo Russell had 31 points in his team's 123-94 win over the Sacramento Kings. Russell shot 48 per cent from the field and 50 per cent from three-point range.

Nikola Vucevic used a double-double to help push the Magic ahead of the hosting Atlanta Hawks. Vucevic finished with 29 points and 14 rebounds in Orlando's 122-103 win.

Thunder forward Paul George had his second consecutive game scoring 31 points. The forward led Oklahoma City to a 127-109 win over the New York Knicks.

 

Cavs continue to crash

The Cleveland Cavaliers' loss to the Chicago Bulls moved them to 9-39. Starters Rodney Hood and Alec Burks did not provide much help in the 104-88 rout. Hood finished with just four points on one-of-eight shooting while Burks had a lone three-pointer in 17 minutes of play.

JaMychal Green and Shelvin Mack scored little off the bench for the Memphis Grizzlies. The two finished minus-17 in Memphis' 105-85 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. 

 

Antetokounmpo welcomes Doncic

The Mavs rookie impressed, but Giannis Antetokounmpo made sure to give Doncic his own special welcome. Antetokounmpo had a game-high 31 points in the Bucks' win.

No one could stop Zach LaVine. He had a game-high 25 points in Chicago's first win in the new year, including a one-handed dunk.

Kyrie Irving tallied eight steals to go along with 26 points in the Boston Celtics' 107-99 win over the Miami Heat.

Clippers at Mavericks

When the Mavs host the Clippers on Tuesday, they will likely see the return of Dennis Smith Jr, who has missed the past five games because of a back injury and illness while also being at the center of trade rumours. He will join Doncic as they try to break Dallas' four-game losing streak. Los Angeles will enter the matchup off their first win in six games.

The Houston Rockets keep finding a way to win after James Harden inspired a 138-134 overtime win against the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Boston Celtics were ready for the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday, claiming a thrilling win in the NBA.

Kyrie Irving said he will never question his team-mates in public again after the Boston Celtics star's criticism on Saturday.

Irving was obviously frustrated after Eastern Conference contenders the Celtics lost 105-103 to the Orlando Magic in the NBA.

After the defeat in Orlando, Irving said the "young guys don't know what it takes to be a championship level team." It was Boston's second consecutive loss on the road following four successive victories at TD Garden.

Irving further explained the comments he made following the narrow defeat during Boston's shoot-around on Monday.

"I never want to come from a place where I don't want to sound like, or make it feel like, I don't want to win a championship," Irving said.

"Sometimes I may come off and say things, never to question my team-mates in public like that ever again; I just want to win so bad."

Irving suggested the players are feeling the pressure of lofty expectations placed on them at the beginning of the season.

"It came from a place where I asked for a trade and I'm coming here and I believe in this organisation and I want these young guys to be successful," Irving said. "In order to that, we all got to be on the same page and have that mindset that, a championship or nothing.

"And sometimes that can get the best of me at times."

The Celtics (25-18) lost 109-102 to the Brooklyn Nets (22-23) without Irving (quad) and Marcus Smart (illness).

The Houston Rockets cannot rely on James Harden being "superhuman every night", said Mike D'Antoni after the reigning MVP tied an NBA record for the most missed three-pointers in a game.

Although Harden tied Kobe Bryant for the most successive 30-point matches (16) by scoring 38 in a 116-109 loss to the Orlando Magic, he shot just one-for-17 from beyond the arc to match Damon Stoudamire's unwanted mark.

Rockets head coach D'Antoni was disappointed by Houston's defensive display and called on other players to step up when the six-time All-Star is having a difficult time.

"The problem is you can't rely on [Harden] to be superhuman every night. We have to have some contribution from other guys," said D'Antoni.

"I thought they came in with a lack of focus, especially on the defensive end and it carried over on the offensive end. We didn't play well.

"I just thought the whole game we didn't have the right focus for a team that plays well. Steve Clifford has them [Orlando] playing really well.

"We got 10 points, 10 points, 10 points up and let them hang around and we didn't have the right amount of focus and you get beat. Hopefully we'll learn from it."

Harden was keen not to dwell on his shooting struggles, insisting that defense was the greater issue for the Rockets.

He said: "[The threes] just didn't go in. It's not even about offense though, defensively we weren't locked in enough and we gave up 70 points or something [actually 64] in the second half. We scored enough points to win.

"We didn't have our [defensive] focus level like the last few weeks.

"We don't have the margin of error. We've got to come in locked in from the beginning of the game for all four quarters. You give a team like this some confidence and open shots, and they made them. It's pretty simple."

Houston Rockets star James Harden tied multiple NBA records on Sunday.

The 29-year-old tallied 38 points in the Rockets' 116-109 loss to the Magic in Orlando.

It was Harden's 16th game scoring 30 or more points, which tied former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant's record set during 2002-03.

Harden, however, missed 16 of his 17 three-pointers in the loss. He tied Damon Stoudamire for the most missed three-pointers in a single game. It was also the worst three-point field-goal percentage in a single game in NBA history, with a minimum of 15 attempts.

"The problem is you can't rely on [Harden] to be superhuman every night,'' Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said, via ESPN. "We have to have some contribution from other guys. I thought they came in with a lack of focus on the defensive end, and it carried over on the offensive end. We didn't play well."

Harden, the defending MVP, has been one of the best players in the NBA this season. He entered Sunday's matchup averaging 34.1 points, 8.7 assists and 6.1 rebounds per game in 2018-19.

Harden is also shooting 43.8 per cent from the field and 39 per cent from three-point range.

The loss to the Magic dropped Houston to 24-18 this season. They will host the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.

Kawhi Leonard led the way as the Toronto Raptors outlasted the Washington Wizards 140-138 after double overtime in the NBA.

Leonard posted 41 points and 11 rebounds on Sunday to guide the Raptors in a marathon shoot-out, while Pascal Siakam had an impressive 24 points and 19 rebounds.

On the other side, Bradley Beal recorded 43 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists in Washington's losing effort. 

Bradley became just the second player in NBA history to record multiple 40-10-15 games in one season. Oscar Robertson also accomplished the feat in 1961-62. 

Beal's performance, however, was not enough as the Wizards dropped to 18-26. Meanwhile, Eastern Conference leaders the Raptors improved to 33-12.

 

Harden ties Bryant's record

James Harden had 38 points and 12 rebounds in the Houston Rockets' 116-109 loss to the Magic. Harden extended his 30-point game streak to 16 games, tying Kobe Bryant's all-time record.

Stephen Curry hit 11 shots from behind the arc in a 48-point performance as the Golden State Warriors topped the Dallas Mavericks 119-114.

Nikola Jokic notched 40 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Denver Nuggets past the Portland Trail Blazers 116-113.

 

Lin struggles as Hawks fall

Jeremy Lin scored seven points on two-of-10 shooting as the Atlanta Hawks fell short to the Milwaukee Bucks 133-114.

Josh Hart scored nine points for the Los Angeles Lakers on three-of-12 shooting in a 102-95 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

 

Doncic dazzles, Simmons sizzles

Luka Doncic sliced through the defense with a cut to the basket and finished strong at the rim.

Ben Simmons converted this lob with flair as the Philadelphia 76ers beat the New York Knicks 108-105 on the road.

Trail Blazers at Kings

Portland's exceptional guard play has helped lift the team to fourth in the Western Conference, while the Sacramento Kings' young team are hovering just outside of the playoff picture, sitting in 10th place. This matchup should be an exciting offensive showcase.

Blake Griffin was out for revenge on Saturday and he got it as the Detroit Pistons defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 109-104.

The Milwaukee Bucks managed to overcome a big performance from James Harden to top the Houston Rockets 116-109 in the NBA. 

The Toronto Raptors did not have a hard time as they beat the Indiana Pacers 121-105 behind the efforts of an unlikely leading scorer on Sunday.

Kyle Lowry made his return to Toronto's lineup against Indiana and he put together a decent performance. He recorded 12 points, eight assists and three steals.

Norman Powell led all scorers, though, pouring in 23 points on 10-of-12 shooting off the bench for Toronto.

Bojan Bogdanovic led the way for Indiana with 21 points and nine rebounds.

Even without Kawhi Leonard, the Raptors were too much for the Pacers. Toronto snapped Indiana's six-game winning streak, dropping them to 26-13.

The Raptors improved to 30-12 and claimed the top spot in the Eastern Conference from the Milwaukee Bucks.

Harris, Russell shine

Tobias Harris recorded 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds on 10-of-21 shooting in a 106-96 Clippers victory over the Magic.

D'Angelo Russell tallied 28 points and made six three-pointers as Brooklyn beat the Bulls 117-100.

Karl-Anthony Towns dropped 28 points and registered 18 rebounds to help the Timberwolves top the Lakers 108-86.

 

Awful Olynyk

Kelly Olynyk scored nine points on three-of-10 shooting and the Heat fell short to the Hawks 106-82.

Trevor Ariza scored four points on one-of-nine shooting, but the Wizards still managed to beat the Thunder 116-98.

 

Crawford class

Jamal Crawford elusively threw the ball between his own legs to get into the lane and make a floater in the Suns' 119-113 loss to the Hornets.

Jarrett Allen showed he can throw dunks down just as well as he can block them with a rim rocker.

Brooklyn Nets 117-100 Chicago Bulls
Los Angeles Clippers 106-96 Orlando Magic
Minnesota Timberwolves 108-86 Los Angeles Lakers
Atlanta Hawks 106-82 Miami Heat

Toronto Raptors 121-105 Indiana Pacers
Charlotte Hornets 119-113 Phoenix Suns

 

Nuggets at Rockets

Denver (26-11) have been a pleasant surprise this season and will enter this matchup with the best record in the Western Conference. Houston (22-16) have been one of the NBA's hottest teams lately. While the Rockets lost to the Trail Blazers in their last game, they have been steadily climbing the standings.

Victor Oladipo nailed a last-gasp three-pointer as the Indiana Pacers extended their winning streak to six NBA games by beating the Chicago Bulls 119-116 in overtime.

Indiana star Oladipo banked in a three-pointer with 0.3 seconds remaining to ensure the Pacers stayed hot on Friday.

Oladipo finished the game with 36 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals.

The Pacers are now just one and a half games back of the Milwaukee Bucks for first place in the Eastern Conference.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 16 rebounds, 10 assists and eight rebounds as the Bucks – who led 43-12 after 12 minutes – routed the Atlanta Hawks 144-112 in Milwaukee.

 

George helps Thunder top Blazers

Paul George had 37 points, eight rebounds and two assists in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 111-109 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. The victory broke an eight-game losing streak in Portland for Oklahoma City.

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal posted 33 points, nine rebounds and seven assists but his team fell to the Miami Heat 115-109.

Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns scored 29 points and added 15 rebounds in their 120-103 victory against the Orlando Magic.

Los Angeles Clippers center Marcin Gortat had close to a perfect night scoring 18 points on eight-of-10 shooting and two-of-two from the free-throw line. He also grabbed 13 rebounds in a 121-111 win over the Phoenix Suns.

 

Sexton struggles in Cleveland's defeat

Cavaliers rookie Collin Sexton shot the three-pointer well, going three of four from beyond the arc, but he failed to hit a single shot inside of the line as he finished three of 13 from the floor in Cleveland's 117-91 loss to the Utah Jazz.

 

Doncic dazzles again

Dallas Mavericks sensation Luka Doncic provided another shot for the highlight-reel, nailing a three before the half-time buzzer in his team's 114-93 defeat at the Boston Celtics.

Raptors at Bucks

In a night full of good games as the Memphis Grizzlies play the San Antonio Spurs, the Houston Rockets face the Trail Blazers and the Golden State Warriors meet the Sacramento Kings, this is the best game on the schedule. It is two MVP contenders going head to head for the second time this season. Kawhi Leonard did not play in the first matchup of the season and the Toronto Raptors lost to the Bucks, but the second fixture was decided by just five points and was a great regular-season showing. This one looks to be no different.

Paul George ignored boos in the Staples Center, scoring 37 points for the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 107-100 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

George, who spurned the Lakers in free agency, had plenty of highlights to quieten the crowd on Wednesday.

Thunder star Russell Westbrook had a triple-double (14 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists), but had a terrible shooting game, hitting just three of 20 attempts.

A few players stepped up in LeBron James' absence, but the Lakers fell short. They are now 1-3 with James sidelined by a groin injury. He is considered day-to-day.

Kyle Kuzma has been the Lakers' second-leading scorer this season, but he left with a lower-back contusion. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ended up leading the way for Los Angeles, scoring 25 points on six-of-14 shooting. Brandon Ingram and JaVale McGee scored 17 and 15 points respectively.

The Lakers dropped to 21-17, while the Thunder improved to 24-13 this season.

Hayward heroics

Gordon Hayward scored 35 points on 14-of-18 shooting in a 115-102 Celtics win against the Timberwolves.

Anthony Davis had an impressive 34 points and 26 rebounds as New Orleans fell to Brooklyn 126-121.

Jaren Jackson Jr. was very efficient, scoring 26 points on eight-of-11 shooting while grabbing 10 rebounds in the Grizzlies' 101-94 loss to the Pistons.

Joel Embiid had 42 points and 18 rebounds in Philadelphia's 132-127 win against Phoenix.

 

Horrible Holiday

Justin Holiday scored three points and only made one of his seven shots from the field as the Bulls lost to the Magic 112-84.

Devonte' Graham scored 10 points on three-of-13 shooting in the Hornets' 122-84 routing at the hands of the Mavericks.

 

Towns with a huge dunk

Although Minnesota fell short to the Celtics, Karl-Anthony Towns was happy to punch a dunk home on Semi Ojeleye.

Joel Embiid slashed through the defense with a euro-step to finish at the rim in the 76ers' 132-127 win against the Suns.

Wednesday's results

Dallas Mavericks 122-84 Charlotte Hornets
Miami Heat 117-92 Cleveland Cavaliers

Boston Celtics 115-102 Minnesota Timberwolves
Orlando Magic 112-84 Chicago Bulls
Detroit Pistons 101-94 Memphis Grizzlies
Philadelphia 76ers 132-127 Phoenix Suns
Oklahoma City Thunder 107-100 Los Angeles Lakers

 

Rockets at Warriors

Stephen Curry was out of commission in this season's first matchup with Houston. The Rockets are on a tremendous run and James Harden is catching fire every game. Although Chris Paul is out, the Rockets may be able to will themselves to another victory against the reigning champions.

The San Antonio Spurs used a season-best performance in the third quarter to beat the visiting Boston Celtics in the NBA on Monday.

San Antonio (21-17) entered half-time trailing 52-46 but then returned to score 46 points in the third quarter. The Spurs won 120-111.

LaMarcus Aldridge led the effort with 32 points, nine rebounds and five assists. Derrick White pitched in 22 points and Davis Bertans had 17 points off the bench. It was Aldridge's second consecutive game scoring 30-plus points.

The two teams were neck-and-neck from the field – San Antonio shot 49.5 per cent and Boston 48.9 per cent – but the Spurs were able to do some damage from long range and made 53.8 per cent of their three-pointers while the Celtics struggled (32.4 per cent).

Jaylen Brown led Boston (21-15) with 30 points off the bench.

Harden makes history

James Harden etched his name in the record books during the Rockets' 113-101 win over the Grizzlies. He passed Oscar Robertson for the most consecutive games (eight) in NBA history recording 35-plus points and five-plus assists. Harden finished the contest with a triple-double, recording 43 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds. He also joins Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant as the only players in the last 30 seasons to score 400-plus points in a 10-game span.

Victor Oladipo (22 points, seven assists) and Domantas Sabonis (20 points, eight rebounds) powered the Pacers to their fifth consecutive win. Indiana enter the new year third in the Eastern Conference behind only the streaking Bucks and the Raptors.

 

No magic from Fournier

The Magic's Evan Fournier scored just nine points and had four turnovers in the team's 125-100 loss to the Hornets. Fournier finished the night minus-20.

 

Curry recovers to shoot three

Stephen Curry recovered in only a way he can, with a nothing-but-net three-pointer.

76ers at Clippers

The 76ers (23-14) and Clippers (21-15) are sitting near the top of their respective conferences, but both teams are also entering Tuesday's contest after losses. The 76ers are awaiting the return of their leader Joel Embiid, who sat out of Sunday's game with knee soreness and was not able to practice on Saturday. Coach Brett Brown told reporters Embiid's soreness was "recent" and they are "just being precautionary with it".

Russell Westbrook just was not feeling it on Sunday as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Dallas Mavericks 105-103, while the Philadelphia 76ers were no match for the Portland Trail Blazers.

Westbrook flirted with his normal triple-double, but he put on a four-of-22 shooting performance in the NBA on Sunday.

The former MVP recorded nine points, eight assists and nine rebounds. Paul George outperformed Westbrook by pouring in 36 points.

Luka Doncic paved the way to victory for Dallas. The rookie scored a team-high 25 points. DeAndre Jordan's 17-rebound double-double was crucial for the Mavericks, as well.

The Mavericks are still undefeated against the Thunder this season and improved to 17-18. Oklahoma City dropped to 22-13 but remain third in the Western Conference.

Grizzlies at Rockets

The Houston Rockets are shooting up the Western Conference standings while the Memphis Grizzlies may have already peaked. James Harden has recorded three consecutive 40-point games and the Rockets have thrived under his leadership while benefiting from the acquisition of Austin Rivers. The Grizzlies will have their hands full against one of the hottest players in the league.

The Los Angeles Clippers trumped city rivals the Los Angeles Lakers 118-107 in the NBA on Friday.

The Lakers were missing injured superstar LeBron James and they struggled to finish the game without him against the Clippers.

Quite a few Clippers had cold shooting nights, but Lou Williams was not one of them with a game-high 36 points off the bench.

The Clippers subs amassed a staggering 71 points, trumping the Lakers' total of 36.

Kyle Kuzma led the Lakers in scoring with 24 points.

Warriors at Trail Blazers

Golden State are still near the top of the Western Conference, but have lost back-to-back games. Portland handed the Warriors a 110-109 overtime loss in Oracle Arena on Thursday, so the Dubs will have a chance to avenge themselves this time around.
