The battle for the playoffs is raging since the victories of the Chicago Bulls and the Orlando Magic are turning the flavor of the upcoming games into extra spicy.

In the Eastern Conference, the Indiana Pacers lost some ground after being ousted by the Orlando Magics, at home. That was the third victory in the last four games for the Pacers who are not out of trouble yet.

And that is because the Chicago Bulls won their second game in a row, now shocking the Rockets in Houston. Even though they were losing by nine points in the beginning of the fourth quarter, coach Hoiberg’s players got what they wanted, preserving their good chances for making the playoffs.

The Results:

Cleveland Cavaliers (Lebron James 24 p. 11 a.) – Brooklyn Nets: 107 – 87

Indiana Pacers (Nikola Vucevic 24 p. 6 r.) – Orlando Magic: 94 – 114

Houston Rockets (Nikola Mirotic 28 p.)- Chicago Bulls: 100 – 103

New Orleans Pelicans (Toney Douglas 20 p. 10 a.) – Denver Nuggets: 101 – 95

Oklahoma Thunder (26 p. 11 a.) – L.A. Clippers:

Portland Trail Blazers (Al-Farouq Aminu 28 p. 9 r.) – Boston Celtics: 116 – 109
