There were eight NBA games to look forward to on Friday.

Follow along below for live updates, stats and highlights from each contest.

Philadelphia 76ers 126, Atlanta Hawks 104

The 76ers blowout the Hawks, courtesy of a 42-24 second quarter. Philadelphia have now won their last three games by a combined margin of 97 points.

Boston Celtics 143, San Antonio Spurs 140 [OT]

Jayson Tatum to the rescue!

Washington Wizards 122, Cleveland Cavaliers 93

The Wizards keep surging. Seven different players score in double figures for them led by Russell Westbrook's 177th career triple-double with 15 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists as the team picks up their 12th win in the last 14 games.

They pulled away in the third, outscoring the Cavs 33-16.

Portland Trail Blazers 128, Brooklyn Nets 109

Three straight wins for the Trail Blazers, the most for the team in a month. Damian Lillard finds his form once again as the Blazers blowout a KD-less Nets squad.

Memphis Grizzlies 92, Orlando Magic 75

In a low-scoring contest, Grizzlies come out on top with Morant running away with the highlight of the day.

Milwaukee Bucks 108, Chicago Bulls 98

No Giannis Antetokounmpo, no problem. The Bucks take care of business in Chicago, bouncing back from a loss in Houston.

Phoenix Suns 121, Utah Jazz 100

The Suns jump to the top seed in the West by defeating the shorthanded Jazz, who were playing without Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley Jr.

Sacramento Kings 110, Los Angeles Lakers 106

LeBron James finishes with 16 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals but fails to hit the game-winning 3 in his return from injury.
