Game day preview - OKC Thunder to host hot young 76ers team

Bulls guard Zach LaVine scored just six points on 2-of-11 shooting (0-5 from 3-point range) in a 110-96 loss to the Bucks. LaVine had five rebounds and five assists, but Denzel Valentine made a case for starting after scoring 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting. The team announced Sunday that guard Andre Roberson is expected to miss the rest of the season after having surgery on a ruptured left patella tendon. However, Roberson slipped and fell on the court as his leg bent in an awkward direction. Oklahoma City has a 28-20 record, fifth best in the West. Westbrook, the league's reigning Most Valuable Player, poured in 36 points in the team's latest victory, a 121-112 triumph over Washington on Thursday.

The Clippers erased a 21-point first-half deficit and snapped the Pelicans' four-game winning streak. There has been plenty of well-documented team in-fighting, with Thomas even jawing at forward Kevin Love at the start of a heated, closed-door meeting last week.

The Pistons are 3-11 since point guard Reggie Jackson went down with a sprained ankle December 26.

The 33-year-old forward, in his 15th National Basketball Association campaign, was 17 points shy of the milestone entering the contest.

Embiid and Westbrook will go head-to-head during the All-Star game, with Embiid on Team Stephen and Westbrook on Team LeBron. Paul George has 37.6 fantasy points per game.

During their last five games, the Thunder have scored an average of 122.6 points per game (16.6 above their season average) and allowed an average of 108.4 points per game (6.6 above their season average).

Led Syrian peace talks resumed in Vienna
The meeting comes as part of a new round of the intra-Syrian dialogue in the context of the Geneva political process. The cease-fire ended a two-month escalation between government forces and rebels in the Eastern Ghouta region.

LaMarcus Aldridge and Manu Ginobili each added 15 points in San Antonio's 13th straight win over Sacramento.

On the road, Philadelphia is 13-11 ATS with 14 overs and 10 unders.

The two engaged in a staredown contest in a game within the game. A San Antonio official said Joerger was lightheaded and was kept in the locker room for precautionary reasons.

De'Aaron Fox led Sacramento with 26 points.

Just because Donovan's group has done it before, however, doesn't necessarily guarantee it'll be easy to negotiate losing Roberson, one the of the NBA's preeminent defenders and a Defensive Player of the Year candidate.

Aaron Gordon had 22 points, and Evan Fournier finished with 21 to lead the Magic.
