When Warriors make 21 3s, you’re not winning even with a strong effort, and Minnesota was very strong. Edwards is absolutely scary and Towns is as effective as he’s ever been ad a pro. Nice win for GSW. – 12:29 AM

Great night for the Nuggets. Lakers and Timberwolves both lose so Denver now has a 3-game cushion from the play-in. – 12:25 AM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
It’s been a familiar feeling since LeBron’s heater, but watching Anthony Davis block Embiid while staying with him on a drive, seeing his 29-point, 10-rebound stat line midway through the third — it’s going to be a shame if/when the Lakers can’t pull it out with his effort. – 9:03 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
This AD performance, on both ends, has been incredible.
(It also doesn’t help that Korkmaz isn’t in the same zip code chasing Monk around these screens. Keeps putting Embiid in a tough spot.) – 9:03 PM

Davis just swatted Embiid for a second time tonight, as he continues to look terrific individually (29 points, 10 boards, 3 blocks in 26 minutes).

An impressive performance from Anthony Davis has come mostly with Joel Embiid on him. Embiid’s been dominating the NBA for the last month and change (35 ppg), but Davis is 12 for 16 for 27 points with 7 boards and 2 blocks.

Unbelievable first half from Anthony Davis, who Embiid has played well against in his career: 23 points on 10-13 shooting. A nice mix of easy ones from his teammates but also a few tough, well-contested mid-rangers.

Pretty easily the best half Davis has ever had against Embiid (at least that I can remember). Defending him a lot more than normal, too. Should be a fun second half – 8:30 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
AD putting on a show. Up to 22 points on 10-of-13 shooting. And would probably have more if he hadn’t needed to leave in the first to have that wrist attended to. He’s keeping the Lakers in this. – 8:30 PM

Davis (8 points on 4-of-6 shooting) and Embiid (6 points on 2-of-5 shooting) are aggressive early. But so is Tobias Harris, who has 7 quick points on 3-of-3 from the floor after entering tonight questionable with a non-COVID illness. Sixers lead 18-14. – 7:46 PM

Westbrook is shooting 44% from the field on the season, but has upped it to 52% over his last 3 games.
@TermineRadio thinks the #Lakers are better off if he comes off the bench. @Eddie Johnson disagrees and says Russ deserves his 💐.

LeBron James this season

7.7 reb
6.3 ast
Most consecutive seasons averaging 25-6-6
LeBron – 18
Big O – 8
Bird – 4
In Year 19, he’s scoring more per minute than in any other season in his career. – 2:45 PM

What if Kobe Bryant was 7-feet tall?
It’s no what if.
Why Joel Embiid’s footwork, fadeaways and finishing bring back shades of Mamba.
