After having the second longest winning streak in NBA history, the Rockets are now on a 2 game losing streak after their bad loss to the Hornets last night 90-69.
Bonzi Wells was traded from the Rockets to the Hornets right before the trade deadline. He claims that his performance last night was not a reflection of that but I doubt that. He scortched the Rockets in the fourth quarter of this one, scoring 20 of his 25 points in the fourth. He looked like Bonzi Bryant or something. Always be careful when there are players who you trade and then you play them when you are both in the playoff hunt.
Cavaliers 89 – Pistons 73
This is fastly becoming one of the top rivalries in the league and LeBron was up to the challenge as always. He dropped 30 points on the Pistons to lead the way for the Cavs and put himself closer to being the top scorer in Cavs history. He needed 35 points to pass Brad Daugherty for the lead, with only 5 points left to score for that lead it’s safe to say that he will probably get it soon.
Cleveland proved that they are still a contender in the east with this 89-73 win, turning the ball over just 8 times in the whole game.
Nuggets 113 – 76ers 115
In Allen Iverson’s first game back in Philly since he was traded in December 2006 the 76ers welcomed him back by beating him.
AI had his chance to make it a storybook ending for himself though. He had a chance with a 20 foot jumper with seconds to go but he misfired and instead the Nuggets left Philly with a 115-113 loss. The Philly fans gave him a great ovation though.
