Celtics surprised the Atlanta Hawks: 94-87.  New York continues to reel in the absence of Tyson Chandler as they fell to the Washington Wizards.  Carmelo posted another 20/10 game.  John Wall posted a game-high 31 points. Evan Turner posted a 20/10 game, and Michael Carter-Williams scored a game-high 29 points whilst pulling in 7 steals, but the Pacers still managed to maintain the best record in the league.  DeMarcus Cousins was a single rebound short of a 20/20 game, but the Clipper still managed to earn a win by the narrowest of margins.  Chris Paul’s double-double streak ended though, as he only posted 9 assists, though he did score a team-high 22 points. And the Golden State Warriors faced off against the Trailblazers.  The Trailblazers were down by double-digits in the thirds, but stormed back and then had a stellar fourth quarter to secure the win and maintain the second best record in the league.  Klay Thompson and LaMacrcus Aldridge both had a game-high 30 points (though LMA also had 21 rebounds to go with that), and Stephen Curry and David Lee both came away with double-doubles.
