Wednesday, April 21 – NBA scores, updates, news, stats, highlights and top fantasy performers

Just one month remains until the NBA's Play-In Tournament begins as the regular season rolled on with a busy five-game slate.

We've got you covered below with live scores, news, stats, highlights and the top fantasy performers from the day.

Atlanta Hawks 112, Orlando Magic 96

Six players scored in double figures for the Hawks as they now pick up their ninth win in the last 11 games.

New York Knicks 109, Charlotte Hornets 97

After trailing 66-60 at halftime, the Knicks turned things around in the second half and the third quarter specifically. They held the Hornets to just 31 points in the second half as the Knicks outscored them 31-16 powered by Barrett's 18 in the period.

This is the Knicks' seventh straight victory - the best active win streak in the league.

Brooklyn Nets 134, New Orleans Pelicans 129

Kyrie Irving scores 24 of his 32 in the second half as the shorthanded Nets, without Kevin Durant and James Harden, handed the Pelicans a tough loss - virtually eliminating them from the play-in contention in the West.

LA Clippers 113, Portland Trail Blazers 112

No Kawhi Leonard, no problem. Paul George leads the Clippers, the hottest team since the All-Star break, past the Trail Blazers, who have now lost six of their last eight.

Minnesota Timberwolves 134, Sacramento Kings 120

Big contributions by KAT and Russell as they break a tie with the Houston Rockets for the worst record in this league with this victory.
