Paul Millsap
The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute surprises and upsets. Coincidentally all visitors won their games. Here is the last day review presented by ESL.

Fifth-ranked Mavericks (27-41) used its home court advantage to challenge first ranked Nuggets (45-22) in Dallas on Thursday. The visitors from Denver managed to secure only one-point victory 100-99. However their fans expected much easier game. Nuggets looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Nuggets made 7 blocks. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Paul Millsap (203-85, college: Louisiana Tech) who helped to win the game recording 33 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds. Serbian center Nikola Jokic (209-95, agency: BeoBasket) contributed with 11 points, 14 rebounds and 8 assists for the winners. Slovenian guard Luka Doncic (201-99) replied with a double-double by scoring 24 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists for Mavericks. Mavericks' coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Nuggets maintains first position with 45-22 record. Mavericks lost seventh consecutive game. They keep the fifth place with 41 games lost.
Important game to mention about took place in Oklahoma City. Second ranked Pacers (44-25) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging their close opponent Thunder (42-27) 108-106 in the fight for the second place. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Thunder. Lithuanian-American power forward Domantas Sabonis (209-96, college: Gonzaga) scored 26 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Bojan Bogdanovic chipped in 23 points and 5 assists during the contest. At the losing side swingman Paul George (206-90, college: Fresno St.) responded with 36 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Pacers maintains second position with 44-25 record behind leader Toronto R. which they share with defeated Thunder. Thunder at the other side keeps the second place with 27 games lost. They share the position with Boston C..
An interesting game for Celtics (42-27) which played road game in Sacramento against their close opponent Kings (33-34). Third ranked Celtics managed to get a 6-point victory 126-120. Kyrie Irving notched a triple-double by scoring 31 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists to lead the effort. Even 34 points (!!!) and 7 assists by Buddy Hield did not help to save the game for Kings. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Celtics moved-up to second place, which they share with Oklah.City T. Loser Kings keep the third position with 34 games lost. Celtics will have a break next day, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Kings will play against the league's second-placed 76ers in Philadelphia and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game for Raptors (49-20) which played road game in Los Angeles against 4th ranked Lakers (31-37). First ranked Raptors managed to get a 13-point victory 111-98. Kawhi Leonard fired 25 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Raptors maintains first position with 49-20 record. Lakers at the other side keep the fourth place with 37 games lost. Raptors will have a break next day. Lakers will play on the road against Pistons (#3) in Detroit and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Cleveland supposed to be also quite interesting. Second ranked Magic (32-38) played at the court of 5th ranked Cavaliers (17-52). Magic smashed Cavaliers 120-91 on Thursday. It was a very good performance for Nikola Vucevic who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 19 points and 11 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Magic maintains second position with 32-38 record having ten points less than leader Toronto R. Loser Cavaliers keep the fifth place with 52 games lost.
