Charlotte Hornets (28-25) – Cleveland Cavaliers (32-21) 101: 102 (Boxscore)
- The Charlotte Hornets once again showed why their games are absolute compulsory program for every NBA fan, and the CAVs are withdrawn. While the Half Court offense of both teams was long tough, there were highlight plays and drama en mass, unfortunately, the referees in the thriller’s final phase were too often in focus.
- In the rightly, the game was decided on the frewurflinie after Kevin Love was fouled after an offensive book and the referees evaluated this as a Wurffoul, which seemed borderable but justifiable. However, the clear wrong decision occurred in the previous Possession, when Gordon Hayward was clearly held in good position on the offensive board of Isaac Okoro, the whistle remained.
- The hornets had previously been a spectacular comeback including three triples in a row, which was started just five minutes before the backlog of -10 by one of the most curious decisions of the season. Clearly after an ordinary foul, Terry Rozier put on to a trivial threesome when Ed Davis touched him from the bank on the arm, a typical psycho play in the league. The referees, however, rated as illegal intervention of a bank player and evaluated the litter as successful for three points, the fourth point came by free-throw after the included technical foul against Davis. The decision of the referee not only caused the Cavaliers for unbelief.

Evan Mobley (8, 8 rebounds) seemed hesitant in his throw selection (4/13 FG). On the other side, Terry Rozier was the Topscorer with 24 points in almost 40 minutes, the guard needed 21 litters (4/14 3P) and was the unfortunate figure of the last minute. First he missed the Dagger with the last conclusion of the Hornets, then he fouls Love after his offensive book. Lamelo Ball (15, 5/14 FG) went 9 minutes before the end with 5 fouls on the bench and did not come into play anymore.
Indiana Pacers (19-35) – Chicago Bulls (33-19) 115: 122 (Boxscore)

Indiana had more success from Downtown (12/27, 44.4 percent), without Malcolm Brogdon, Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner and other rotary players, the Pacers went empty again. The bulls already led quickly in the first quarter of +11 and seemed to control the game over always in control, but Indiana could never shake off.
- Torrey Craig was with 2.01 meters of the greatest starters of the Pacers, while Terry Taylor was listed as a starting center with 1.96 meters and there was an absolute bright spot there. 8 of his 14 rebounds he grabbed on the offense board, for which he distributed 5 assists and collected 21 points at 9/17 fg.
