James Harden after 51-point night: exhausted of hearing officials' excuses

The cause for concern was Chris Paul limping back to the locker room early in the fourth quarter with an injury the team initially described as a "sore left leg".

Bucks 109, Hornets 104: Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton combined for 14 points in the fourth quarter as Milwaukee closed the game with an 9-0 run to beat Charlotte Hornets.

"I think he's day-to-day, but we're going to be real cautious with it, I'm sure", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni told the Houston Chronicle on Thursday. But even when crediting the Lakers' output, the Rockets were playing short-handed, more so as the game went along.

With James Harden and Chris Paul, and an army of 3-point snipers - if the money works - the Rockets represent LeBron's best chance to take down the Golden State Warriors.

As well as CP3, the acquisitions of P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute has also been vital as they've helped the Rockets plug one of their glaring weaknesses on the defensive end.

Eric Gordon will return to the starting lineup in the role he filled when Paul missed 14 games with a bruised knee. Troy Williams (who isn't a regular part of the rotation but would be in the absence of Mbah a Moute) is out with a sprained right MCL. With Clint Capela and Trevor Ariza headed toward free agency, just bringing this group back could vault Houston well into the luxury tax.

Turkey dismisses over 2700 officials with new decree
The uniform will also apply to those accused of attempting to abolish the Turkish government and will come into force next month. The decree also said 115 employees who were dismissed in the past were reinstated.

They still lead the pack in the Western Conference at 25-5 and have played some of the most devastating basketball this year.

"We've just got to get healthy and try to win a few and try to battle this and go through some adversity".

Nets 119, Wizards 84: Forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had 21 points, 11 rebounds and six assists, and swingman Caris LeVert had 17 points and six rebounds as six players scored in double figures to power Brooklyn's rout of Washington.

"It's the only thing we think about", Morey said while adding, "I think I'm not supposed to say that". Playing 40 minutes, we don't want to do that, but we're trying to win the game, and it's caught up.

The Lakers will not be able to enjoy the win for long. The Rockets were 10-4 with Paul out, winning six straight before a loss November 12 in the final game before his return.

Lonzo Ball ain't the only Lakers rookie looking to make a dent in the sports apparel game. his teammate, Kyle Kuzma, is also hawking his own line of shirts - and they're selling like insane. We'll probably look at what the Lakers did.
