Nam Y. Huh/AP Photo Long Hair Don’t Care: Following his triple double performance on Thursday, Joakim Noah led the Bulls to another victory with a team-high 21 points (10 of 13), 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 blocks against the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets started the game with a 15-4 lead, but crumbled in the second and third quarter to give away a 19-0 run for their opponents. In between the second and third, Brooklyn did not score a single point for a whole 7 minutes. Carlos Boozer came in for 20 points (9 of 16), 8 rebounds and a career 5 steals. Brook Lopez of the Nets had 22 points on 9 of 16 shooting. Wild Finish: With 27 seconds left, the game tied up at 102 between the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors, Ersan Illyasova scores 2 of his total 29 points (12-21) on a put back to give his team a one point lead with 6.9 left to play. Toronto, without their leading man, Rudy Gay (back spasms) went to Alan Anderson (21 points) for the last play, where he got by Larry Sanders for the dunk to force overtime. But the Raptors are still Raptors, so it would only be fitting that they would fail to execute late and lose this game. Kyle Lowry added a triple double, 10 points, 10 boards, 10 dimes and 5 steals. Brandon Jennings of the Bucks got a career high 19 assists, while Larry Sanders erased 5 shots to make it his 39th straight game to register at least one block. Panic in the Bay: The good news for the Golden Warriors is that Stephen Curry has been incredible in the last few games. The bad news is that they were 0-4 this week, despite of Curry’s ridiculous numbers and only 3.5 games ahead of the Lakers. In this slop-fest against the struggling Philadelphia 76ers, where both teams had at least 20 turnovers that led to 20 points for the opposing tea,. Stephen Curry was stayed hot. Hitting 11 of 20 from the field for 30 points and 8 assists. Klay Thompson chipped in for 29 points, 7 of 12 from the three. But the Sixers would not give this game away. Jrue Holiday went off for 27 points on 11 of 20 shooting, 5 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals. While his back court mate, Evan Turner goes for 22 points (10-15), 10 rebounds and 9 assist to end Philly’s 7 game losing streak. Rookie Watch: At this point of the season, there is no doubt that Damian Lillard is a lock for the ROY award. The rookie had 24 points (9 of 18), 6 rebounds and 4 assists to lead his Blazers to victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. J.J Hickson went for 18 points (7 of 8) and 16 boards. The shooting woes of the Wolves continued last night, as the team shot 39 percent from the field, and only 1 of 12 from downtown. They did not hit a three until the last 45 seconds of the game. Derrick Williams had a team-high 23 points on 20 shots and 8 rebounds in the losing effort Follow me on twitter @Leslie_Kam. You can also find me on The Basketball Machine for more NBA fun.
