Davis goes for 42 in win over Lakers

Jazz win 11th straight

Are the Jazz ever going to lose again? We’ll have to wait and see. They handled a pesky Phoenix Suns squad for their 11th consecutive win Wednesday.

Westbrook gets ferocious

When Russell Westbrook dunks, you have to feel sorry for the rim.

Jackson goes behind the back

For a rookie, Suns forward Josh Jackson sure has some serious moves … and confidence.

Simmons gets a triple-double

Not bad, rookie. Not bad. Ben Simmons notched his sixth triple-double in a victory over the Heat.

They don’t call him Mo Buckets for nothing

Magic forward Marreese Speights somehow found a way to get this ball into the hoop. Well, at least he’s the one who will get credit for the basket.

And-ones:

  • Warriors guard Patrick McCaw will be out at least a month with a non-displaced fracture in his left wrist.
  • Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball will miss Friday’s Rising Stars Challenge as he continues to rehab his injured left knee.
  • Wizards Marcin Gortat and John Wall reportedly met to help mend their relationship.
