Kyrie Irving finished with 25 points and 7 assists, LeBron James added 24 points with 12 rebounds and 6 assists, holding Paul George and Monta Ellis to a combined 8-of-33 from the field, although it didn’t make the game easier.

Dallas Mavericks 97  Atlanta Hawks 112: The trade rumors seemed to light up something in Jeff Teague, producing 32 points and 8 assists in his best game this season, backed by 16 points from Kyle Korver, hitting four three pointers in a rough season for him.
