The Brooklyn Nets won 117-110 against the Bulls in Chicago, for whom D’Angelo Russell top scored with 28 points. Meanwhile, the Atalanta Hawks eased to a 106-82 win over the Miami Heat. The Hawks had a mammoth third quarter, and it was too much fire for the Heat to handle.

Kemba Walker’s stunning fourth quarter propelled the Hornets past the Suns by a 119-113 scoreline. The Wizards continued their recent improvement, as they defeated the Thunder 116-98 on the back of 25 points from Bradley Beal.
