- Knicks 102, Kings 97: Jamal Crawford scored eight points in the final 1 minute 7 seconds to lead New York over Sacramento in the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day matinee. Crawford's won some other games this sesaon, but should people go as far as David Lee in singing his praises? The second-year forward called Crawford the "one of the best in the NBA" at performing down the stretch. Not quite, but still a good performance.
- Nets 105, Pacers 95: Mikki More is trying to become an understudy of the Nets' Big Three. Two of the troika -- Vince Carter and Jason Kidd -- showed up on Monday, and Moore provided 19 points. With Richard Jefferson destined to be hobbled the entire season, Moore's play could prove important for the Nets. They sit at 17-20 but are still in the proverbial virtual tie for first place. Only in the NBA's Atlantic Division.
- Lightning 4, Islanders 3: A bounce off a broken stick led to Tampa Bay's fourth goal, but the Islanders can't blame bad luck on this one. Bad penalties led to two first-period power-play goals for the Lightning, and they controlled the game from there.
