Fairytale night for Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal, who dragged the Wizards to a 133-132 success at the Indiana Pacers, which is also worth eighth place in the Eastern and therefore, at least for now, access to the play ins.
But tonight's turn in the NBA will be remembered above all for Westbrook's fabulous record, author of his 181st career triple double (33 points, 19 rebounds and 15 assists) which equals Oscar Robertson's record.
The icing on the cake was also the spectacular match of his teammate Bradley Beal, who signed 50 points.
There was also glory in the ranks of the Pacers, with the triple double of Domantas Sabonis (30 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists).
After four defeats in a row, former leaders Brooklyn returned to victory, beating the Denver Nuggets 125-119 thanks to a great second half under Kevin Durant (33 points and 11 rebounds).
Easy victory for the Sixers, formation first in the standings, against the Pistons, last: it finished 118-104, star player Joel Embiid with 29 points.
For Philadelphia, increasingly alone in command of the Eastern Conference, it was the eighth consecutive victory.
In the west continues the dominance of Utah Jazz, which beat the Rockets 124-116. Finally, a large victory by Golden State over Oklahoma for 136-97, with 49 points signed by Steph Curry. A success that for the Warriors is worth eighth place in the Western, immediately behind the Lakers who see Portland stretch ahead of them, who clearly beat San Antonio 124-102 and put a good piece of playoff in his pocket.
