Tyler Herro ignited the Heat's offence with 27 points and eight rebounds in front of a crowd of 18,300 at Vivint Arena
It was the 10th career 50-point game for the 33-year-old Curry, who passed Wilt Chamberlain to become the oldest player in NBA history with a 50-point, 10-assist game
were unable to prevent a superb comeback by the Thunder, who had trailed by as many as 26 points late in the second quarter before rallying after the interval.
Nikola Vucevic scored 17 points and Lonzo Ball had 15 as the Bulls won their fourth straight meeting with Toronto. Ball shot 5 for 9 from 3-point range.
The first practices of the season in the NBA are here, with teams set to hit the floor on Tuesday to formally begin getting ready for the 2021-22 campaign. A six-pack of things to watch as things get started:
New York will play host to Toronto on 1 November, exactly 75 years to the day after the Knicks visited the then-Toronto Huskies in the first game of the Basketball Association of America's inaugural season.
Anthony Davis missed half of the 72-game regular season because of a string of injuries. LeBron James, who missed more than 20 games this season with a high right ankle sprain.
There was no run to the NBA Finals this year for the Miami Heat, not even a single playoff victory. With the Heat entering a crucial offseason, here's what to watch for:
Bucks became the first team to advance in this year's playoffs, beating the Heat 120-103 on Saturday and finishing off a first-round sweep over last season's Eastern Conference champions.
The Bucks needed Khris Middleton’s tiebreaking jumper with 0.5 seconds left in overtime to pull out a 109-107 victory in Game 1. Milwaukee essentially put away Game 2 in the first quarter when its 3-point attack went from fizzling to sizzling.
Middleton kept his composure superbly to drain the decisive jump shot from 18 feet with just 0.5 seconds on the clock, handing the Bucks a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven first round series.
No 7 Los Angeles will host No 8 Golden State in the Western Conference play-in with the winner taking the seventh seed and a spot against Phoenix and the loser having to play another game to determine the eighth seed.
The Lakers can take the No 6 seed if they win at New Orleans on Sunday and Portland loses to Denver that day. If the Lakers finish No 7, they will be in the play-in tournament against the No 8 seed.
The play-in field isn’t quite set. And nobody knows who’ll play anybody yet. Welcome to the final weekend of the NBA’s regular season
NBA: Bojan Bogdanovic scores 48 points, Jazz rally to beat Nuggets; 76ers inch closer top spot in East
Bogdanovic went 16 of 23 from the field — making a career-high eight 3-pointers — to lead the NBA-leading Jazz to their fourth straight victory.
The New York Knicks were on their longest winning streak since a 13-game run late in the 2012-13 season.
NBA: Julius Randle stars as New York Knicks win ninth straight game; Dallas Mavericks beat Los Angeles Lakers
Derrick Rose scored 19 points to help the Knicks move into fourth place in the Eastern Conference with 11 games remaining. They are on their longest winning streak since a 13-game run late in the 2012-13 season, when they won the Atlantic Division title in what was their last playoff appearance.
James Harden was back after missing a game because of neck soreness. He had 44 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists. Brooklyn were still without Kevin Durant (left hamstring strain) and Kyrie Irving (personal reasons).
Lowry — a free-agent-to-be and considered perhaps the biggest prize on this year's trade market — did not get traded, the Raptors apparently unable to find enough assets to their liking
