Bhullar, Stockton Continue to Shine for Bighorns
The two Kings prospects put up massive stat lines against the Bakersfield Jam on Saturday.
The Reno Bighorns high-octane offense met up with the Bakersfield Jam on Saturday in Reno. Although the Bighorns came out on the short end of the contest, the usual suspects showed out for the Kings D-League affiliate.
7-foot-5 center Sim Bhullar is also playing extremely well in March, averaging 12.7 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 3.8 blocks per game.
On Saturday against Bakersfield he nearly tallied his second triple-double of the season, recording 16 points, 16 rebounds, and seven blocks.
Meanwhile, David Stockton continued his recent string of stellar performances, tallying 32 points, 11 assists and five rebounds in 42 minutes of action.
“Young Stock” is now averaging 34.7 points, 12.5 assists and 4.8 rebounds in the month of March.
Rockets hang on to beat Clippers 100-98; Westbrook lifts Thunder win over Bulls
LOS ANGELES: James Harden and the Houston Rockets got back on track after a pair of frustrating road losses, overcoming Blake Griffin’s return for the Los Angeles Clippers.
Harden scored 34 points, Terrence Jones had 16 points and 12 rebounds, and the Rockets beat Los Angeles 100-98 on Sunday to salvage a split of their four-game season series.
Houston star Dwight Howard was sidelined for the 22nd straight game because of an injured right knee. He has missed 34 altogether this season, and the Rockets are 18-16 with him out of the lineup
OKLAHOMA CITY: Unlike the last time the Chicago Bulls played Oklahoma City, Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook showed faith in a teammate with the game on the line, and Anthony Morrow proved worthy.
Westbrook had 36 points, 11 rebounds and six assists, including one to Morrow for a clinching 3-pointer in the final minute, helping the Thunder hold off Bulls 109-100 on Sunday.
For only the third time in the Thunder’s last nine games, Westbrook didn’t record a triple-double, falling short in assists largely because his teammates weren’t shooting well early and Westbrook took over as the team’s primary offensive option late. Oklahoma City shot 46 percent from the field, with Westbrook finishing 12 of 27.
Results: Chicago Bulls 100 lost to Oklahoma City Thunder 109; Houston Rockets 100 beat Los Angeles Clippers 98; Denver Nuggets 118 beat New Orleans Pelicans 111; Cleveland Cavaliers 123 beat Orlando Magic 108; Minnesota Timberwolves 91 lost to San Antonio Spurs 123; Portland Trailblazers 113 beat Toronto Raptors 97; New York Knicks 89 lost to Phoenix Suns 102; Atlanta Hawks 91 beat Los Angeles Lakers 86
