Mavericks vs Thunder live

The Dallas Mavericks (12-25) finally have a three-game winning streak to their name this season. More impressively, the Mavs have suddenly started taking care of business on the road. They most recently went into New Orleans to beat the Pelicans. They were ahead by over 20 points by the second quarter and never looked back.

Rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr. starred as he dropped his first-ever triple-double with 21 points, ten rebounds, and ten assists in 31 minutes. He also tied a career-best with five three-pointers. Wes Matthews chipped in with 18 points while the bench came up with 60 big points led by Devin Harris’ 17.

The Mavs will gun for their fourth win in a row against the Oklahoma City Thunder (20-16), who saw their six-game winning run snapped by the Milwaukee Bucks. However, the Thunder were without one-third of their Big Three after Paul George was ruled out with a knee issue. There was also some controversy as to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s game-winning dunk, which should not have counted after he stepped out of bounds.

With George out, the Thunder offense once again devolved into the Russell Westbrook show circa 2016-17. Westbrook scored 40 points and took 34 shots as no other Thunder player scored over 12 points and took more than 12 shots.

Nets vs Celtics live

The Celtics (29-10) pulled off the biggest NBA comeback of the season, rallying from 26 points down in the third quarter and leading only once – on Al Horford’s basket with 3.7 seconds left in the game.

They had help in the most improbable win. First of all, the Rockets were severely shorthanded. Second, and probably more important, the NBA revealed Friday that the game’s two officials – Mark Lindsay injured his back in pregame warmups — missed a pair of traveling violations against Boston. Both noncalls led to the final two baskets of the wild night.

Saturday, Celtics coach Brad Stevens, asked about the two traveling calls said, “Yeah, I saw one of them.”

Afterward, Houston star James Harden, whose two offensive fouls in the backcourt as his team tried to inbound the ball, said the shortage of a ref had plenty to do with the Rockets’ fourth straight loss.

“Well, first of all how do you have two officials in a national game? … It’s unacceptable,” he said. “You can’t have two officials in a professional game. It changes the dynamic. Lot of grabbing, lot of holding. How else am I supposed to get open?”

Both teams had to play the game with two officials and the Rockets were victims as the Celtics, spurred by their sellout crowd, managed to come all the way back.

“We just didn’t stop believing,” said Terry Rozier, who said Kyrie Irving called the players together for “a special talk” at halftime.

The Timberwolves were on the other side of a one-point game on Monday, beating the Trail Blazers 108-107. Jimmy Butler scored 37 points as they outscored Portland 32-22 in the final quarter to get over the line. Their record of 18-13 is the fourth best in the West. They sit at the top of a cluster of teams between fourth and ninth who are separated by just four games.

Butler averages a respectable 20.1 points for the season, and his form is on the rise. In his past eight outings, he has averaged 26.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.9 steals. He has also put up four 30-point games in this time, and has taken over as the focal point of a talented but inefficient offense.

Bulls vs Wizards live

The Washington Wizards take on the Chicago Bulls in Washington on New Year’s Eve for the last NBA Sundays primetime game of 2017.

The Bulls currently sit in 11th place in the Eastern Conference and are looking to climb their way up the rankings and continue their recent good form, with the Wizards in sixth position in the Eastern Conference standings.

The Bulls charted a new course when they traded three-time All-Star Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves for guards Zach LaVine, 22, and Kris Dunn, 23, and the draft rights to 20-year-old Finnish forward Lauri Markkanen on June 22.

That deal and other offseason moves left Chicago with the NBA’s least experienced roster – and plenty of opportunity for youngsters to carve out big roles. Several of those players have fuelled the team’s current stretch of eight wins in 10 games, including Dunn, forwards Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis and former NBA G League standout David Nwaba.

Dunn, the fifth pick in NBA Draft 2016, is showing considerable potential following an up and down rookie season in Minnesota. Markkanen has been one of the NBA’s top rookie scorers to date.

UFC 219 fight card live

UFC 219 between Cris Cyborg and Holly Holm has the makings of the most historic female UFC title fight in the organization’s history.

Holm vs. Ronda Rousey was a significant bout in terms of showcasing the evolution of women’s MMA, but it really doesn’t get much bigger than fighting Cyborg for a title.

Holm has the opportunity to become the first fighter in history to defeat both Rousey and Cyborg tonight, while Cyborg looks to defend her featherweight title for the first time inside of the Octagon. Stylistically, this fight can go any number of ways. In truth, this fight could end inside of 15 seconds or go the full 25 minutes.

Holm has looked spectacular at times in her seven-fight UFC career, with highlight knockout victories over the likes of Rousey and Bethe Correia. However, she doesn’t have much else to hang her hat on.

Under closer examination, Holm has actually struggled inside of the Octagon. She has gone 1-3 in her last four fights, including an 0-2 record in title fights. While it can be argued that she actually beat Germaine de Randamie back at UFC 208 in the inaugural women’s featherweight fight, she still didn’t put on a convincing performance.

Nuggets will be looking to bounce back from tough losses when they square off Saturday night in Denver. The Nuggets lost a nail-biter in overtime on Wednesday night to the Timberwolves, while the Sixers are coming off a fourth-quarter collapse in Portland, where they were outscored 42-25 in the final frame.

Unfortunately, we will not get the matchup of young big men we were hoping for, as Joel Embiid will miss this game. He’s been dealing with a sore back in recent weeks, and the Sixers have decided to send him straight to Phoenix for the final game on the Sixers’ road trip tomorrow night.

The Golden State Warriors (28-8) will host the Memphis Grizzlies (11-24) at the Oracle Arena on Saturday (Sunday AEDT). All eyes will be on Warriors superstar Stephen Curry, who will return to action after missing 11 consecutive games due to a right ankle sprain.

In Curry’s absence, the likes of Shaun Livingston, Quinn Cook and Patrick McCaw have taken turns at the point guard position.

“Oh yeah, he’s (Curry) excited. He’s fired up. The process was just going along with the medical staff’s recommendation and just the daily progress that he was making, combined with the schedule the way it works out tomorrow should be a good game for him to play. I wouldn’t want him to play on a back-to-back with his ankle healing. Tomorrow it appears he is good to go and then we don’t play again for a while. Should be a good time for him to go for it,” Kerr said after the team’s 111-100 loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Friday.

Despite going 9-2 without Curry, the Warriors would be forced to make some adjustments, according to Kerr. Curry is expected to be on a minutes restriction. “I would say most likely he’ll play. I talked to him today and he was feeling good, so we’ll see how he’s feeling tomorrow morning. He probably will have a time limit on his minutes, but we haven’t worked that out yet.

Cavaliers vs Jazz live

the NBA by storm early in his career, people have started thinking of player comparisons. Which past or present player does his game resemble most? Perhaps the best comparison is one of the players Mitchell grew up idolizing — Dwyane Wade.

Clearly, Wade is on the down-slope of his career, but in his prime he was one of the greatest guards of all time, and when comparing their size and skill sets, they are extremely similar players.

Both are combo guards capable of running the offense or playing off-ball. Both stand around 6-foot-3 or 6-foot-4 and have abnormally long wingspans for their height. They are ultra-athletic as well, and use that athleticism to get into the paint and finish around, and often over, bigger defenders.

As a 22-year-old rookie, Wade averaged 16.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, four assists and 1.4 steals per game. The 21-year-old Mitchell is averaging 17.9 points, 3.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.5 steals per contest.

After a thrilling come-from-behind victory against Minnesota (which included more than a few moments of angst for fans to chew on), the Milwaukee Bucks hit the road to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Milwaukee’s win against the Timberwolves was very much a tale of two games. Initially, the Bucks were flat, despondent, and unexciting. After halftime, they moved with purpose, got after the ball,  They did, however, fall back on old habits, and showed off a fair amount more of their hyper-aggressive defense that had gotten them into trouble earlier in the season.

After taking a while to get their bearings, the Thunder appear to be poised to push up against their Western Conference counterparts.

game will be the second of a four-game season series between the Heat and Nets, with the Heat winning the first meeting on December 9 in Mexico City.
