Tonight was a good night for an NBA fan and also a good night for former Kentucky players. 12 games were played last night and 13 former cats saw action. Let’s take a look at the recaps from last night’s action.
Orlando Magic (19-58) 86 – Chicago Bulls (42-33) 87
Somehow the Bulls keep pulling through even though they are very short handed. Different players stand up and take over to do whatever they can to win. Last night Nate Robinson was the man for the Bulls as he scored 12 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter to rally past Orlando. Nazr Mohammed started, scoring 5 points with 11 rebounds and 1 assist. Marquis Teague did not play due to a coach’s decision. Doron Lamb saw limited action for Orlando, scoring 3 points with 1 rebound and 1 assist
Oklahoma City Thunder 97(56-20) – Indiana Pacers 75(48-28)
The Thunder continued their great play last night with Kevin Durant scoring 34 points with 9 rebounds. DeAndre Liggins and Daniel Orton both saw limited action as they both played 2:14 minutes with 1 rebound each.
Miami Heat 89(59-16) – Charlotte Bobcats 79(18-58)
MKG had a solid night for the Bobcats as he led his team in scoring with 18 points. He also had 14 rebounds and 1 assist but it wasn’t good enough to get past the Miami Heat even though they are missing key players like, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. The Heat’s Mike Miller led all scorers with 26 points.
New Orleans Hornets 83(26-50) – Utah Jazz 95(40-37)
