Boston small forward Jaylen Brown left the Celtics' game Thursday night at Minnesota after landing hard on his back following a dunk late in the third quarter. It is now just two games behind Toronto. Bjelica's first 20-10 game in the National Basketball Association was ultimately wasted in the season-high third straight loss for the Timberwolves.

Russell Westbrook was efficient in the Thunder's 115-87 win over the Suns with 27 points on 11-of-14 shooting.

Panic Time for Cavs, but What Can They Do?

Brown was down for an extended period but was able to get up and walk off on his own power. "I was just happy he was able to get up and walk off because that was one of the worst falls I've seen". "He's with [Minnesota's] team doctor, so he's in good hands".

Without Butler to worry about, Irving unleashed his typically smooth ball-handling on the outside and lightning-quick first step to create openings for himself and others.

The dynamic duo were in one fluid motion in the final frame - they combined for 15 of the C's 31 fourth-quarter points and shut the door on any potential Timberwolves comeback. Boston had 18 second chance points to Minnesota's nine.

"I was terrified. I mean, I know what that fall is like", said Smart.

NETS 125, HORNETS 111: Allen Crabbe made his first six 3-point attempts and finished with 29 points and eight rebounds, helping Brooklyn win at Charlotte, North Carolina, to snap a four-game losing streak.

That was enough for its defense, which is tops in the league in defensive rating, per NBA.com.

Like a ton of National Basketball Association players who can defy gravity, Jaylen Brown is extremely athletic.

Nemanja Bjelica was the Wolves' saving grace, scoring a career-high 30 points (11-16 FG, 6-9 3P, 2-2 FT) and grabbing 12 rebounds. That was when the Timberwolves took advantage by going on a 6-0 run, and eventually pulled to within six points of Brad Stevens' club.
