Career Night for Cam Thomas & Clippers Duo OT Victory

An unlikely leading scorer in Cam Thomas arises with 44 points, and Giannis Antetokounmpo has a 30-point triple-double.

From the Bench to Stardom

After Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving requested a trade, Irving was ruled out tonight, meaning the Nets would be without Irving and forward Kevin Durant. The hero for the Nets came from the bench as guard Cam Thomas finished the game with 44 points, six rebounds and five assists in 29 minutes. The efforts from Thomas allowed the Nets to complete a 23-point comeback against the Washington Wizards. With this performance, Thomas will certainly be implemented into the starting lineup in the absence of Irving.

Clippers Duo Win Thriller in the Garden

In a game where New York Knicks guard Jalen Brunson had 41 points, five rebounds and seven assists, many would believe the Knicks would’ve come out on top. The Los Angeles duo of guard Paul George and forward Kawhi Leonard had other plans as the Clippers captured a 134-128 overtime victory. George ended the game with 30 points, seven rebounds and five assists, while Leonard had 35 points, five rebounds and three assists. It’s safe to say if the Clippers make the right move at the trade deadline and their scoring duo continues to score 60+ combined points; the Clippers will be championship contenders.

Giannis Continues to Break the Game

The Milwaukee Bucks hosted the Miami Heat, in which both teams are in the thick of the playoff race as the Bucks edged out the Heat in a 123-115 victory. Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is now 9-0 in his last nine games and had 35 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists tonight. Milwaukee find itself competing for the championship again and will remain contenders if it can remain healthy to finish the season.
