"The Luka play, I'm not really going to comment on it because I didn't see it closely enough," said Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle. "It's unfortunate, but it sparked out guys and we did a good job finishing the game off."Detroit Pistons
Given his spot in the starting lineup, and salary, the Kings will need from from Buddy than perimeter shooting if they're to develop into a playoff team down the line. Delon Wright (15/7/5/1 with three 3-pointers), Moe Harkless (18/5/3/1 with three 3-pointers) and Terence Davis (18/4/7/2 with two 3-pointers) were among the other Kings who played well, while Marvin Bagley (13/9/2/0/1) just missed out on a double-double. Bagley played just 21 minutes, and did not see any action during the fourth quarter, as the Kings blew the game open in the third quarter.

The Nets' win on Saturday snapped their longest losing streak of the season at four. Now, Brooklyn has four remaining games to continue to refine its rotations, build chemistry and solidify its playoff seeding. While the Nets are all but guaranteed at least the No. 3 spot, the win over Denver puts Brooklyn half a game up on the Bucks -- who own the tiebreaker in the series -- in the race for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Following a narrow win against the Pelicans and a loss to the Pacers in the last week, the 76ers haven’t been playing their best basketball, and, granted, that doesn’t bode well for their form in the postseason. Philadelphia has won championships in 1955, 1967, and 1983 and have 51 playoff appearances, and even though they’re coming into 2021 with a newly branded identity, their elite squad and their know-how to win games will make them an underrated force to be reckoned with.
The Lakers have lost seven of their last 10 games. Six of those losses came with Davis in the lineup.Cleveland Cavaliers
