Charlotte Bobcats (20-61) 106 - New York Nicks (53-28) 95

 

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist-Forward-Charlotte

 

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

 

Nazr Mohammed-Center-Chicago

Doron Lamb-Guard-Orlando

 

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

 

John Wall-Guard-Washington

 

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

 

Brandon Knight-Guard-Detroit

 

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

 

Tayshaun Prince-Forward-Memphis

 

Memphis stayed behind the whole first half but in the 3rd quarter they went on a 17-4 run and never looked back. Tayshaun Prince finished the game with 12 points, 1 rebound and 1 assist.

 

Oklahoma City Thunder (60-21) 104 – Sacramento Kings (28-53) 95

 

Demarcus Cousins-Center-Sacramento

Patrick Patterson-Forward-Sacramento

Daniel Orton-Center-Oklahoma

 

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 Demarcus Cousins was allowed to play after the NBA rescinded his 16th technical foul of the season but he was not much of a factor as he only scored 7 points with 6 rebounds and 2 assists.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.

 

Phoenix Suns (25-56) 119 – Houston Rockets (45-36) 112

 

Terrence Jones-Forward-Houston

 

With their last chance of the season, the Phoenix Suns finally won a home game beating the Rockets by 7. The Rockets are a game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers for the No. 7 spot in the playoffs. Terrence Jones scored 12 points with 4 rebounds and 1 assist.
