Missed some of Saturday's NBA action? We have you covered.
From an early one in Mexico City to something we haven't seen in nearly 40 years, here are the top storylines, best fantasy performers and can't-miss highlights from Saturday's slate of games.
The Magic go 2-0 in Mexico City
Following their 97-91 win against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday, the Orlando Magic hosted the Utah Jazz on Saturday for the second and final game of this season's Mexico City Games.
Both the Magic and Jazz got off to an ugly start, but Orlando used a 41-point fourth quarter to defeat Utah by a final score of 96-89.
Evan Fournier led the way for the Magic with 24 points. He got some help from Nikola Vucevic, who finished with a 15-point, 19-rebound double-double, and Terrence Ross, who scored 19 points off the bench on 8-for-9 shooting from the field.
LeBron and Lonzo lead Lakers past Hornets in historic performance
LeBron James entered Saturday's game with a career 30-1 record against Charlotte since Michael Jordan took over as the team's owner, per Bleacher Report's Thomas Duffy.
That record is now 31-1.

Powered by triple-doubles from LeBron and Lonzo Ball - making them the first Lakers teammates since Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to record triple-doubles in the same game - LA cruised to a 128-100 victory over the Hornets.
LeBron James (24p 12r 11a) and Lonzo Ball (16p 10a 10r) both have triple-doubles tonight. The last time Lakers teammates did it in the same game? Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on Jan. 22, 1982- Dave McMenamin (@mcten) December 16, 2018
The last non-Laker teammates to record a triple-double in the same game? Vince Carter and Jason Kidd in 2007.
The end of two streaks
The Boston Celtics' win streak ends at eight games and the Detroit Pistons' losing streak ends at six.
The Celtics got a combined 47 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists and six steals from Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart, but it wasn't enough to overcome strong showings from Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond.
Griffin almost recorded a triple-double (27 PTS, 8 REBS, 6 AST) in the 113-104 win and Drummond almost had another 20-20 game (19 PTS, 20 RBS), what would've been his seventh of the season.
Drummond also had five blocks in the contest, one of which came on a Jayson Tatum dunk attempt down the stretch that sealed the deal.

Turnovers plague Clippers as OKC bounce back
The Oklahoma City Thunder returned home, snapping their two game skid with a 110-104 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.
In a clash between two of the West's best teams, the Clippers were their own worst enemy, turning the ball over 26 times and the Thunder made them pay as they shot an extra 15 field goals on the night.
Paul George was the star with 33 points, including five three-pointers, seven rebounds and six assists, leading the way early with 21 first-half points as Russell Westbrook got off to a slow start. Westbrook finished with 13 points, 12 assists, nine rebounds and six steals on the night.

Despite taking an 11-point lead into half-time, which they extended to 17 by the third quarter, OKC couldn't relax as the Clippers finished the game strong, scoring 35 points in the fourth. Trailing by six points with 20.7 seconds left, LA's Montrezl Harrell went to thre free throw line, missing both as Jerami Grant went down the other end for a dunk to ice the game.
Harrell finished with 21 points on the night, while Danilo Gallinari matched his season-high with 28 points and Tobias Harris added 22.
