Kemba Walker scored 19 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter for the Hornets. He has earned the confidence of the Sixers to aggressively seek out shots there. This number includes Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons combining for over six giveaways per game.

Embiid also had 18 rebounds, and hit a tying 3 with 34.4 seconds to go.

They have beat the Over/Under 2 times in this two-week span, while falling under 5 times.

Embiid ended up with 20 points and 10 boards, while Ben Simmons finished two assists shy of what would've been his third triple-double of the year. However, Charlotte needs someone else to step up in crunch time, because teams are going to be focusing and expanding so much energy on guarding Walker.

In Salt Lake City, Joe Ingles tied his career high with 27 points to help the Utah Jazz beat the Boston Celtics 123-115 in Gordon Hayward's return to Utah.

For example, the Denver Nuggets missed the playoffs by one game last season.

It was the eighth game for Embiid this season with at least 30 points and 10 rebounds.

Donovan Mitchell had 21 points, former Celtics forward Jae Crowder scored 20 points and Ricky Rubio added 17, as the Jazz won consecutive games after losing four in a row.

Another Aussie 76er Jonah Bolden scored his first 3-pointer in the National Basketball Association, and finished with five points, four rebounds and one assist in 11 minutes on the court.

In a game that was essentially decided in the first quarter, the Pistons were so dominant that they scored 74 points and led by 23 at halftime with Blake Griffin, the NBA's fifth-leading scorer, 0 for 2 from the field. Drummond's double-double was the 300th of his career, most in the league since his rookie season of 2012-13.

Karl-Anthony Towns established season highs of 39 points and 19 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who completed an 0-5 road trip.

The Nets overcame a big bounce-back night from Denver's Nikola Jokic to win their third straight.

But the Nets played to the final buzzer by scoring the final 6 points, including LeVert's game-winning floater in the lane.

Hornets: The Hornets ran into foul trouble late in the game. The total number of points scored for the over/under is listed at 225, 54.2% have picked the under.
