What a night of hoops it was around the NBA with eleven games on the slate.
Three games where decided by one possession, with monster performances across the league.
Catch up on all the news, scores and highlights right here.
Game of the Night
There were a number of close games on the loaded schedule, but game of the night goes to a game decided by the barest of margins.
The Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs met, but it wasn't the classic Dirk vs. TD rivalry of old, instead it was Jalen Brunson and Dejounte Murray who led the way.
Trailing by double digits late in the third quarter, the Mavericks battled back into a game that had multiple ties over the final five minutes.
In the end it was Brunson who took over, scoring 13 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter.

Of course, every good game has drama late, with a trip to the free-throw line for Brunson with 2.7 seconds left setting twitter alight.
After missing the first with the Mavericks leading 109-108, Kidd instructed Brunson to miss the second with the Spurs not possessing a timeout. Brunson did miss the free-throw, be he unfortunately failed to hit rim at all, giving the Spurs the ball on the sideline.
"I probably messed him up there at the end, telling him to miss the free throw, so I owe him a point," Kidd said postgame.
All's well that ends well?
Highlight of the Night
How many times do we think Ja Morant will take out this nomination for the season?
The Grizzlies star was at it again against the Denver Nuggets, throwing in a 360 to finish this lay-up.

Morant finished with 18 points, six rebounds, six assists and three steals as the Grizz topped the Nuggets 108-106.
I know we're only supposed to have one highlight, but I wanted to throw in some love to the defensive side of the ball with this HUGE denial from Drew Eubanks. It could have been an incredible poster but nopeeee!
