He wasted little time making an impact, as his 13 points in the first marked the fourth time in five games he scored in double figures in the opening quarter.

About a second separated the shot and game clocks, and stood a step over the half-court line casually dribbling the ball as stood in front of him, halfheartedly in a surrendered defensive stance. The Greek Freak followed that performance up on Sunday in Chicago with 27 points, nine rebounds and eight assists, shooting 57.9 percent from the floor in Milwaukee's 110-96 win.

Tomas Satoransky (11 points, seven assists) replaced Wall in the starting lineup and Tim Frazier (14 assists) shined off the bench. The Pelicans big man was having one of the best years of his career, playing the most minutes he's ever played. The Rockets took a 107-93 lead on a Ryan Anderson 3-pointer at the 7:35 mark and then withstood a late surge keyed by Suns guard Devin Booker and forward T.J. Warren. The Washington Wizards are -1 over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night. While Bradley Beal had 41 points for the Wizards, Westbrook topped his fellow All-Star with 46 points. The Washington Wizards are just 1/2 game up on fifth seed in the Eastern Conference.

There was more pressure on Westbrook in the backcourt in the Thunder's first game since Andre Roberson ruptured his patellar tendon, per Brett Dawson of the Oklahoman. They allow 108.3 points per 100 when he's off. "I can't really give you another answer because I do the same thing every night, regardless of what's going on".

The procedure was performed by Dr. Carlan Yates of the McBride Orthopedic Hospital in Oklahoma City. But, for now, he will be rested for the first time in over a month.

Washington's recent downtrend has filled the locker room with drama, which has begun to take its toll on the team.

With a minute left, the lead was back to 10.

Embiid was ruled out of the game Monday morning, one day after being deemed "available" to play.

For all his ability at the defensive end, Roberson is one of the weakest offensive perimeter players in the National Basketball Association. After a strong start, the Magic have been struggling the last few months, with only five wins in December and January entering the week. In the three losses, their net rating was -16.6 while in their two victories, their net rating was 18.8.
