Wizards 90, Hawks 74 - A 24-12 second quarter gave Atlanta a six point halftime lead, but Washington came roaring out of halftime to take control of the game and never look back. Otto Porter and Glen Rice, Jr., scored 25 and 22 points respectively for the Wizards while Adrien Payne had 12 points and seven rebounds to lead the Hawks. Jamil Wilson saw 14 minutes of action off the bench for the Wiz, scoring five points and grabbing five rebounds.
Nuggets 110, Raptors 82 - It was all Nuggets from the get-go, and they coasted to the easy victory. Well, maybe not all coasting. A Dwight Buycks and-1 cut the lead to just 10 with more than four minutes left in the third quarter, but Denver got the lead back to 15 at the end of the period. Buycks got the nod in the starting five for Toronto again, and 21 points to lead the Raptors, while also grabbing four rebounds and dishing four assists. Gary Harris had a game high 33 points for the Nuggets, while Quincy Miller had 23 points for them as well.
Bulls 86, Clippers 70 - It wasn't all Bulls early, but it was pretty close. Chicago had the first seven points of the game, and a 9-1 run early in the second quarter made it 31-19 after a Doug McDermott three point basket. The lead was 11 at intermission, and while the Clips made it interesting in the third quarter by cutting the lead to five at one point, it was 14 with one 10 minute period left to play. Tony Snell had 27 to lead Chicago's effort, while Doug McDermott had 10 points on 2-8 shooting, with both makes coming from behind the arc. Davante Gardner only got in the game for garbage time at the end, but still found enough time to make both shots he took and grab an offensive rebound.
