The Nets were able to count on crucial hits from Kevin Durant, who scored 26 points, while Kyrie Irving scored 28 points against the Hawks, who had to do without Trae Young, De’Andre Hunter and Clint Capela. With 23 wins against 12 losses, Brooklyn overtakes Milwaukee (22 wins, 12 losses) and moves into second place behind Boston (25-10).

The Bucks lost 119-113 in overtime in Chicago. Another top performance from Giannis Antetokounmpo, with 45 points and 22 rebounds, and an 11-point lead (104-93) with two minutes left in the game just wasn’t enough for Milwaukee. Starring DeMar DeRozan (42 points) and Zach LaVine (24 points), the Bulls went to overtime to then secure their 15th win (against 19 losses) and move up to 10th place.

In the west, New Orleans beat Minnesota 119-118, with 43 points to Zion Williamson. The Pelicans (22-12) took the opportunity to retake the lead from Denver, which has the same winning percentage. The Nuggets lost 127-126 in Sacramento, despite another stellar performance from Nikola Jokic (40 points). Three Kings players finished with more than 30 points: Malik Monk (33 points), Domantas Sabonis (31 points) and De’Aaron Fox (31 points, 13 assists). Sacramento (18-15) is sixth.
