Wednesday, Jan. 20 – NBA scores, updates, news, stats, highlights and top fantasy performers

Just two games were on the slate for Wednesday but it certainly didn't mean the action was minimal.

  • Starting the season 5-7, the Pelicans looked to get back on track and move into playoff calculations against a Utah Jazz team who had rattled off five straight wins.
  • Shockingly, OKC (6-6) sat ahead of Denver (6-7) in the standings prior to this one. That would change with a Nuggets win at home as last year's Western Conference Finalists attempted to get their season on track.

Recap all the scores, stats and highlights right here as some of the best in the west went to work.

New Orleans Pelicans 102, Utah Jazz 118

Donovan Mitchell leads the Jazz with 28 points as Utah cruised to a blowout win over the Pelicans.

Zion Williamson finished with 32 points in 35 minutes but it wasn't enough as Utah buried 21 triples in the win.

Some bully ball from Zion.

Oklahoma City Thunder 101, Denver Nuggets 119

Nikola Jokic posted his customary double-double with 27 points and 12 rebounds in just 28 minutes as the Nuggets rolled over the Thunder.

Jokic continued his dunking spree of late, this one coming in a 15-point first quarter.

Lu Dort led all scorers for OKC with 20 points including 3-for-6 shooting from three.

Fantasy lines of the night

Zion Williamson - 32 points, five rebounds, 14-for-19 FG

Donovan Mitchell - 28 points, seven rebounds, 9-for-15 FG

Rudy Gobert - 13 points, 18 rebounds, three blocks

Nikola Jokic - 27 points, 12 rebounds, six assists
