The day started with an injured hit Chicago Bulls (11-16) scoring an easy 95-78 victory over the Brooklyn Nets (9-19) with Taj Gibson leading the way for the visitors with 20 points off the bench.

The Nets fans were not please with their team’s performance and they let the players know with a series of boos and jeers.

“They cheer when things are good and they let you know when things aren’t going good,” Nets first year head coach Jason Kidd said.

“They expect good and they expect it 90 percent of the time, but right now we are 90 percent bad and so they have every right to boo and express how they feel.”

Oklahoma City Thunder (23-5) battered a Carmelo Anthony-less New York Knicks (9-19), 123-94 on a day when the home side struggled to find any rhythm from the floor.

In other NBA scores, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh each scored 23 points and the Miami Heat (22-6) beat the Lakers (13-16) 101-95. The LA Lakers were without star player Kobe Bryant and LeBron James felt his absence made the win a little less special.

“I knew we would get a good game out of them, and I think the NBA wanted a good game,” James said,  whose team crushed the Lakers easily in the last previous meetings. “It’s not as special when Kobe’s not out there.”
