The last game day before the break for the all-star game consisted of only two matches.
“Washington” in excellent spirits went on almost a week break – “wizards” out out “Indiana”, extending the unfortunate series of “Pacers” to six matches.
In the first half the guests from the capital earned 11-point lead, and after the break more easily maintained a comfortable advantage. Once again Washington did not disappoint starting five, who scored in the amount of 97 points. The most productive among the guests was Otto porter (26, 6 of 10 three-pointers), and John wall scored another double-double (20+12 assists).
“Chicago” in a tight struggle snatched victory from the hands of “Boston.” The key moment occurred seconds before the end of the regular playing time. The judges gave a controversial foul on Marcus Smart, trying to cover the cast of Jimmy Butler. The leader of the bulls converted both free throws, and in response to the attack, al Horford was inaccurate.
Little consolation for the Celtics was the record Isei Thomas – point guard in the 41st match in a row scored at least 20 points, which allowed him to beat the club achievement John Havlicek.
The results of the matches of the day:
Indiana – Washington — 98:111 (27:34, 25:28, 25:28, 21:21)
Chicago – Boston— 104:103 (22:25, 30:33, 29:20, 23:25)
