Rudy Gobert was right behind with 27 points, 17 boards while Bojan Bogdanovic scored 18.

The Sixers found themselves down 16 in the first half against the Knicks but Joel Embiid (27 points, 12 boards) and James Harden (26-9-9) led the team to a come-from-behind win.

An interesting duel happened in the win of New Orleans over Sacramento as two Lithuanian nationals faced off. Jonas Valanciunas had 17 points, 14 boards for the winning side while Domantas Sabonis tried to respond with 15 points, 14 boards, seven assists.

Franz Wagner had another great game in a great rookie season with 28 points but it wasn’t enough against a fiery Malcolm Brogdon who put up 31 points, 11 boards, eight assists.
