Star Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley may not be in the best shape come the game, though.

No doubt more important to James, the victory pulled the reigning National Basketball Association champion Cavaliers level with the Boston Celtics atop the Eastern Conference ahead of Wednesday's showdown between the two. A victory would give them 45 wins and the Grizzlies 37 losses. "For us to win this game to get to tomorrow's game".

"We are continuing to try to find solutions", the governing body's general secretary Horst Lichtner said Tuesday, after the National Hockey League said it would not take part in the games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. We were playing defensively.

Kevin Love led the Cavaliers with 28 points and 11 rebounds.

Kyrie Irving added 24 points and J.R. Smith chipped in 19.

"No one can survive that", Magic coach Frank Vogel said. Russell Westbrook is leading the team with 31.6 points, 10.7 points and 10.4 assists per game. "I'm the last person to ask about a regular-season game".

Several minutes into the third quarter of Tuesday's home game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Westbrook notched his 10th rebound and 10th assist of the night to complete his 41st triple-double of the season, tying the legendary Oscar Robertson for the single-season record.

Gordon Hayward scored 30 points as the Utah Jazz beat the Portland Trail Blazers 106-87, while Ben McLemore scored 21 of his 22 points in the second half and led six players scoring in double figures as the Sacramento Kings beat the Dallas Mavericks 98-87. "M-V-P!" with a raised arm. At the first stoppage of play, the referee held the ball to allow for the team's public address announcer to trumpet the historic moment, as Westbrook acknowledged the crowd with a wave.

TIED RECORD. Oklahoma City star Russell Westbrook comes up with his 41st triple-double of the season to equal Oscar Robertson's record. "To be able to be on this stage with this group of guys, it's unbelievable and a blessing".

"It's one of those nights, a special night, and something I definitely will never forget". "That's my motto. That's what I believe in.I never know what's possible. I am truly honoured to do it here in Oklahoma City".

Westbrook tied a career high with his seventh straight triple-double and needs two more to tie the mark for consecutive triple-doubles set by Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain in March 1968.

The Spurs needed overtime against the Memphis Grizzlies, as Kawhi Leonard recorded a double-double of 32 points and 12 rebounds in a 95-89 victory.

Klay Thompson poured in 41 points for the Warriors, who won their 12th straight game. The Rockets are second to Golden State in scoring, at better than 115 points per game.

Where Russell Westbrook has recorded a triple-double. As a point guard, you'd expect Westbrook to be responsible for the opposing point guard, yet Westbrook is often too far away to make any meaningful contribution on defense. Jeff Teague added 20 points for IN, which moved one half-game ahead of Miami for eighth place IN the Eastern Conference.
