LeBron James
Here is the last day review presented by ESL.

The most exciting game of day 113 in the NBA took place in Los Angeles. This derby game ended with only one-point defeat on the road of second-ranked Celtics (35-20) to fourth ranked Lakers (28-27) 129-128 on Thursday evening. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Celtics. Lakers shot the lights out from three sinking 22 long-distance shots on high 53.7 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 35 assists. LeBron James (203-84) stepped up with a triple-double by scoring 28 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists for the winners and point guard Rajon Rondo (185-86, college: Kentucky) chipped in 17 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists. Australian-American guard Kyrie Irving (190-92, college: Duke) responded with 24 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!). Lakers maintains fourth place with 28-27 record. Celtics at the other side keep the second position with 20 games lost.
Very significant was Trail Blazers' (#3, 33-21) victory against second-ranked Spurs (32-25) 127-118. Guard CJ McCollum (193-91, college: Lehigh) nailed 30 points and 9 rebounds for the winning side and Damian Lillard accounted for 24 points, 9 assists and 5 steals. Swingman DeMar DeRozan (201-89, college: USC) came up with 35 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 6 assists for Spurs in the defeat. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Trail Blazers maintains third place with 33-21 record having just seven point less than leader Toronto R. Spurs lost third consecutive game. They keep the second position with 25 games lost.
Very significant was Pacers' (#2, 36-19) victory against their close opponent Clippers (30-26) 116-92. The best player for the winners was Bojan Bogdanovic who scored 29 points and 7 rebounds. Montrezl Harrell produced 19 points and 4 assists for the hosts. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Pacers have a solid series of four victories in a row. They maintain second place with 36-19 record having just eleven point less than leader Toronto R. which they share with defeated Clippers. Loser Clippers keep the second position with 26 games lost.
NBA top team - Raptors (40-16) had no problems winning another game. This time they beat fifth ranked Hawks (18-36) in Toronto 119-101. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Hawks. Pascal Siakam orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 33 points (!!!), 14 rebounds and 4 assists. Hawks' coach rotated thirteen players seeing no chance for a win. Raptors have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain first place with 40-16 record. Hawks at the other side keep the fifth position with 36 games lost.
The game in Minnesota was also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Magic (23-32) played at the court of 5th ranked Timberwolves (25-29). Magic defeated Timberwolves 122-112 on Thursday. Terrence Ross stepped up and scored 32 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Timberwolves' coach tested twelve players in this game, but that didn't help. Magic moved-up to third place. Timberwolves lost third consecutive game. They keep the fifth position with 29 games lost. Magic will have a break next day. Timberwolves will play on the road against Pelicans (#4) in New Orleans and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of day 113 Oklah.City T. destroyed Memphis G. on the opponent's court 117-95.
