It’s thursday night in the NBA and while everyone is focused on march madness, lets not forget about the NBA. Tonight, we had three games around the league so without further ado, heres your March 29. 2013 NBA recap!
The Lakers were back in action as they try to stay in the eight seed of the western conference, with players falling to injury. After defeating the Minnesota Timberwolves they other day, it looked like things were going good for the team. Milwaukee however won this game 113-103 as Larry Sanders led the Bucks with a double-double, career-high 21 points and 13 rebounds. Ersan IIyasova and Brandon Jennings also added 20 points each. Kobe Bryant led LA with 30 points but it wasn’t enough. Preston Schmitt of Behind the Bucks Pass has the recap here.
Next up we have the Indiana Pacers against the Dallas Mavericks. The Pacers defeated the Mavericks 103-78 as Paul George led Indiana with 24 points. Roy Hibbert also added his double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds. The Pacers prevented the Mavericks from reaching the .500 mark and more importantly, it looks like Dirk Nowitzki, O.J. Mayo, Elton Brand, Vince Carter and Chris Kaman won’t be triming their .500 beards for a while. Dwain Price of The Dallas Star Telegram reviews the game here.
Lastly, we have the Sacramento Kings against the Phoenix Suns. With the Suns defeated the Kings twice during the first two meetings, and the Kings winning their third, Sacramento came into this game with hopes of tying the season series against this Phoenix squad. DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings with his season high and double-double of 34 points and 14 rebounds. Isaiah Thomas also added 23 points. Luis Scola led the Suns with 25 points but it wasn’t enough. Scott Levin of A Royal Pain recaps the game here.
