The Spurs beat the Thunder 154-147 in double overtime on Thursday. That’s like a lot of points. In fact, it’s the most combined points scored since 2006. LaMarcus Aldridge played out of his gourd, scoring 56 points on 20-for-33 shooting (16-16 free throws) — he dropped 56 without a single three-point attempt, which seems impossible in this age. In fact, it was the highest individual point total for someone without a three-point attempt since Shaquille O’Neal scored 61 on twos and freebies in 2000.

Don't look now, but the Nets are one of the hottest teams in the league. They've won three in a row, and 12 of their last 15 games after dispatching the Bulls on Sunday, and are now up to seventh place in the East.

The Lakers never had a chance against the Timberwolves on Sunday, and a large part of that was due to the play of Karl-Anthony Towns. The big man has been playing some excellent basketball lately, and he kept it up with a 28-point, 18-rebound outing in this win. Towns has now had at least 28 points and 12 rebounds in six straight games.

Both teams combined for the three-pointers in league history as Steph Curry’s 42 points overcame Buddy Hield’s 32. #barnburner

The Golden State Warriors outgunned the Sacramento Kings 127-123 in a game featuring the most combined made three’s in NBA history. Is it just me, or does it seem like every week some random team is breaking a three-point record on our defense? Weird.

DeRozan showed his old team what it was missing — and you know he meant to make a statement.

Prior to Jan. 3, 2019, DeMar DeRozan never had a triple double in his nine-and-a-half year NBA career. It’s pretty incredible when you think about it.
