John Collins
The Regular Season in NBA is almost over. Almost everything is clear. There are only 9 days left. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last day. The day ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last day review presented by ESL.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Bucks (57-20) in Milwaukee on Sunday night. Hosts were edged by fifth ranked Hawks (28-49) 136-135. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Bucks. Strangely Bucks outrebounded Hawks 71-58 including 22 on the offensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 36 assists. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Hawks made 10 blocks. It was a good game for U.S. Virgin Islands-American John Collins (208-97, college: Wake Forest) who saved his team from a defeat with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists. Guard Justin Anderson (198-93, college: Virginia) contributed with 24 points and 12 rebounds for the winners. Hawks' coach used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. point guard Tim Frazier (185-90, college: Penn St.) answered with a double-double by scoring 20 points, 7 rebounds and 15 assists for Bucks. Hawks maintains fifth place with 28-49 record. Bucks at the other side still keep top position with 20 games lost. Hawks will have a break next day, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Bucks will play on the road against Nets in Brooklyn and are hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Dallas. Fifth ranked Mavericks (30-46) saved a 3-point victory at home edging 4th placed Thunder (44-33) 106-103 on Sunday evening. It was a great evening for point guard Trey Burke (185-92, college: Michigan) who led his team to a victory scoring 25 points and 8 assists. Jalen Brunson helped adding 18 points and 4 assists. The best for the losing side was point guard Russell Westbrook (190-88, college: UCLA) with a triple-double by scoring 25 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.
