Chicago Bulls 85, Detroit Pistons 82

Joakim Noah probably had the best hustle play of the year when he saved the ball after a short Marco Belinelli three at the baseline and the ball somehow went back to Belinelli for a lay-up. Belinelli would also get fouled and that turned into a three-point play. Tayshaun Prince and Rodney Stuckey both missed three-pointers that would’ve sent the game into overtime. Jimmy Butler had 18 points to lead the Bulls while Noah had 10 points and 18 boards.

Memphis Grizzlies 106, Los Angeles Lakers 93

Dwight Howard would hurt his shoulder in the first half and wouldn’t return. With Dwight gone, the defense suffered even more for the Lakers and the Grizzlies ran them out of the building. Darrell Arthur came off the bench to score 20 points and grab nine boards for Memphis. The Lakers can start their seasons whenever they want to but bottom line is that they can’t erase their record of being eight games under .500.
