James Harden and Daryl Morey try to make a winning MVP case against Russell Westbrook (Ball Don’t Lie)

On a weekend when James Harden’s 21st triple-double of the season was completely overshadowed by Russell Westbrook’s historic night, the Houston Rockets tried making their MVP case for the former. Westbrook passed Oscar Robertson’s 55-year-old single-season record of 41 triple-doubles, scored 50 points and capped it all with a game-winning buzzer beater from 36 feet that eliminated the Denver Nuggets from playoff contention. It was the sort of throat-ripping effort we’ve become accustomed to from the Oklahoma City Thunder superstar — and a not-so-subtle reminder of his MVP candidacy.

Damian Lillard torches Jazz with career-high, franchise-record 59 points (Ball Don’t Lie)

Damian Lillard made it very clear very early on Saturday that he intended to seize control of the Portland Trail Blazers’ playoff destiny with both hands. After assisting on Portland’s first bucket against the visiting Utah Jazz, a 3-pointer by center Meyers Leonard and watching running buddy C.J. McCollum hit a short floater, Dame went on to score the Blazers’ next 22 points, staking Portland to a 16-point lead with just under four minutes left in the opening quarter. At that point, the only question was just how crooked a number the Blazers’ explosive point guard could put up.

Clippers have more at stake than Spurs in Saturday matchup (The Associated Press)

The Los Angeles Clippers will still be in must-win mode when they face the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
