There were six games on Tuesday’s NBA slate, but most eyes were on the nationally televised game between the Thunder and the new-look Cavs.
Here are all the scores, highlights and updates from the night’s action.
NBA scores for Tuesday, Feb. 13
New-look Cavs do it again
LeBron James looks like a happy man surrounded by his new teammates. The Cavaliers were firing on all cylinders for the second straight game, as they beat a tough Thunder team on the road. James had 37 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in the win.
JR Smith made six 3-pointers against the Thunder, but this save might have been the most impressive thing he did all night. From midair, he threw the ball nearly the full distance of the court to hit Larry Nance Jr. for the dunk.
Welcome back, Jabari
Jabari Parker has been back in action for a couple of weeks now, but he has to feel like he’s officially back after throwing down this lefty dunk on two Hawks.
Adams throws it down
The pass from Russell Westbrook might not have been perfect, but Steven Adams knows how to go up and get it.
Lowry beats the buzzer
Sometimes it’s better when you shoot before thinking. That’s exactly what Kyle Lowry did to beat the halftime buzzer, and it paid off with three points for the Raptors.
When Dwyane met Bam …
Dwyane Wade has been back with the Heat for only a couple of games, but he’s already building some chemistry with rookie Bam Adebayo.
- Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony both suited up for the Thunder against the Cavs on Tuesday, after both had missed time with ankle injuries. It looked like the rest did them well, as Westbrook had 21 points, seven rebounds and 12 assists, and Anthony added 24 points and seven rebounds.
- Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball as he continues to rehab a sprained MCL in his left knee.
- Nuggets guard Jamal Murray was listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Spurs with chest soreness, but made the start.
