Charlotte Bobcats (20-61) 106 - New York Nicks (53-28) 95
The Bobcats finished last season having the league worst record finishing at 7-59. They are trying to not repeat that as they have one more game to play. Orlando has the same record and also has 1 game left. Depending on who wins or losses, that may well decide who is the worst team in the league. MKG had a quite night as he finished with just 8 points with 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal.
Chicago Bulls (44-37) 102 – Orlando Magic (20-61) 84
As I stated above, with Orlando losing last night they tie Charlotte with the leagues worst record. They have 1 game left, so it is a race to see which team will be the leagues worst. Nazr Mohammed only played 2 minutes with 0 points and 1 rebound. Doron Lamb had 9 points and 1 assist.
Washington Wizards (29-52) 101 – Brooklyn Nets (48-33) 106
Washington took an early 17 point lead but couldn’t hold off the Nets. John Wall had 18 points with 6 rebounds, 12 assists and 3 steals.
Detroit Pistons (29-52) 106 – Philadelphia 76ers (33-48) 101
Even though they won’t make it to the playoffs, Detroit seems to be on the up-tick as they have won their last 4 games. Brandon Knight had 12 points with 2 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal.
Memphis Grizzlies (55-28) 103 – Dallas Mavericks (40-41) 97

Oklahoma City Thunder (60-21) 104 – Sacramento Kings (28-53) 95
The Thunder clinched the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs by beating the Kings last night. Daniel Orton scored 10 points for the Thunder with 7 rebounds and 3 steals. Demarcus Cousins was allowed to play after the NBA rescinded his 16th technical foul of the season but he was not much of a factor as he only scored 7 points with 6 rebounds and 2 assists. Patrick Patterson scored 6 points with 5 rebounds and 1 assist.
