Kevin Durant
Here is the last day review presented by ESL.

Second-ranked Heat (25-29) gave a tough game to first ranked Warriors (40-15) in Miami on Sunday. The visitors from Oakland managed to secure only two-point victory 120-118. However their fans expected easier game. Strangely Heat outrebounded Warriors 52-36 including a 21-7 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of Kevin Durant (206-88, college: Texas) who helped to win the game recording 39 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 4 assists and Bahamas-American guard Klay Thompson (201-90, college: Washington St.) who added 29 points during the contest. Warriors' coach used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Guard Josh Richardson (198-93, college: Tennessee) responded with 37 points (!!!) and 5 assists. Warriors have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 40-15 record. Heat at the other side keeps the second place with 29 games lost. They share the position with Detroit P.. Warriors will have a break next day, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Heat will play on the road against the league's leader Nuggets in Denver and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Portland. Third ranked Mavericks (26-29) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging their close opponent Trail Blazers (33-22) 102-101 in the fight for the third place. The winners were led by Slovenian guard Luka Doncic (201-99) who scored that evening 28 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists and Tim Hardaway-Jr supported him with 24 points. Even 30 points and 5 assists by point guard Damian Lillard (190-90, college: Weber St.) did not help to save the game for Trail Blazers. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Mavericks maintains third position with 26-29 record behind leader Toronto R. which they share with defeated Trail Blazers. Trail Blazers at the other side keep the third place with 22 games lost. Mavericks will play against league's leader Rockets in Houston in the next day and it will be for sure the game of the week. Trail Blazers will play on the road against the league's second-placed Thunder in Oklahoma City and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very significant was 76ers' (#2, 36-20) victory against 4th ranked Lakers (28-28) 143-120. The best player for the winners was Joel Embiid who had a double-double by scoring 37 points (!!!) and 14 rebounds. Kyle Kuzma produced 39 points (!!!) 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. 76ers maintains second position with 36-20 record having just ten point less than leader Toronto R. Loser Lakers keep the fourth place with 28 games lost.
The game in Phoenix was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Kings (30-26) played at the court of 5th ranked Suns (11-47). Kings defeated Suns 117-104. Marvin Bagley-III orchestrated the victory by scoring 32 points and 7 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Kings maintains third position with 30-26 record having just four point less than leader Toronto R. Suns lost fourteenth consecutive game. They keep the fifth place with 47 games lost.

In the last game of day 116 Atlanta H. lost to Orlando M. on the opponent's court 108-124.
