The Regular Season in NBA just ended. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last day. The day ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games. Here is the last day review presented by ESL.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Warriors (57-25) in Oakland on Wednesday night. Hosts were defeated by fifth ranked Grizzlies (33-49) 132-117. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Warriors. Grizzlies looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. It was a good game for guard Jevon Carter (188-95, college: WVU) who led his team to a victory with 32 points. Guard Delon Wright (196-92, college: Utah) contributed with 13 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for the winners. Kevin Durant (206-88, college: Texas) replied with 21 points and 6 assists (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) for Warriors. Warriors' coach rotated twelve players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Grizzlies moved-up to third place, which they share with Dallas M. and N.Orleans P. Defending champion Warriors still keep top position with 25 games lost.
Fifth-ranked Hawks (29-53) were very close to win a game against second ranked Pacers (48-34) in Indianapolis. Pacers managed to secure only one-point victory 135-134. However their fans expected easier game. Worth to mention a great performance of Israeli-American forward TJ Leaf (208-97, college: UCLA) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 28 points and 10 rebounds and Tyreke Evans who added 27 points and 5 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was U.S. Virgin Islands-American John Collins (208-97, college: Wake Forest) with a double-double by scoring 20 points, 25 rebounds and 6 assists.
