The Hawks win 96-69. Muscala scores 16 points and Horford scores 14 points. Green scores 15 points for the Suns. Korver on winning more regular-season games than any Hawks team.:
It’s not our goal. It’s just one of the things as we’re chasing our ultimate goal. Things like this can happen. It’s definitely something to be proud of.
I don’t think we were thinking about the franchise record, We were just trying to turn it up and get a sense of urgency. The playoffs are right around the corner, and we want to have a good rhythm going into it.
We played hard in stretches, but they kept coming, Their bench comes in there and plays just as hard. They had some energy guys, and we didn’t. In the second half, they just kept going and going.
The Suns win 87-85. Green scores 24 points, Bledsoe scores 16 points. Hayward scores 21 points, Gobert has 15 rebounds for the Jazz. Bledsoe on Green’s performance:
It’s unbelievable, Sometimes you get caught up in the moment just watching.
We needed the shooting, and that’s what Gerald provided.
Gordon … he was having a rough night, but he really picked his game up and started going to the rim.
We’re an undersized team but we fought back. We’ll see what happens these last five games and finish up strong.
The Warriors win 107-106 against the Suns. Curry scores 28 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Thompson scores 16 points. Bledsoe scores 18 points and 11 assists. Morris scores 17 points, 12 rebounds for the Suns. Coach Kerr:
It was probably good for us to feel that situation, and have to deal with the pressure.
Coach Kerr kind of looked at me after I made the shot like, ‘You messed up on those two defensive possessions, but it’s OK’.
It was a tough one to swallow. We’re not quitting. We’re hanging on by a small, small thread.
The Thunder wins 109-97 over the Suns. Russell Westbrook scores 33 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, Steve Adams scores 13 points and 16 rebounds. Markieff Morris scores 24 points, T.J. Warren scores 18 points for the Suns. Coach Hornacheck:
I told the guys, this is mathematically not over.
It was a huge game, and we played with a playoff mindset.
This is a tough blow.
What changed was we went out there and played a scrappy brand of basketball.
