New Jersey Nets 97, Washington Wizards 89
Kris Humphries had 12 points and 17 rebounds, giving him his seventh double-double of the season. He’s a real basketball player now, not just a dude who looks like Taylor Lautner. The Kardashian effect is real.
Boston Celtics 102, Atlanta Hawks 90
Boston started Nate Robinson and Semih Erden, played Luke Harangody and Avery Bradley actual minutes and let Marvin “Marvdawg” Williams score 26 points, and they still won easily. Having three Hall of Famers is pretty helpful, apparently.
San Antonio Spurs 113, Denver Nuggets 112
The Spurs won on a questionable drawn charge by Manu Ginobili on the road, which is just about the most Spurs-y thing you can imagine. Seriously, what ref calls an offensive foul on the home team’s superstar on a game-winning shot? Billy Crystal, sure, but he’s retired.
