The Wrap-Up: Rookies take top billing in 2OT thriller

Keith Firmin brings you The Wrap-Up on all of last night’s NBA games including two rookies making history.

Orlando @ Philadelphia

A three at the end of regulation and three free throws at the end of the first overtime period helped the Magic push their game against the Sixers to a second OT but they couldn’t repeat the act a third time, eventually losing to Philadelphia, 126-125. Michael Carter-Williams’ triple-double of 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists led the Sixers, who got a solid 25 point 10 rebounds out of Thaddeus Young. Arron Afflalo played just over 52 minutes, shooting over 50% for 43 points. Rookie, Victor Oladipo, also had a triple-double with 26 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. It was the first time in NBA history that two rookies recorded triple-doubles in the same game.

Milwaukee @ Boston

The Celtics made amends for their 92-85 loss to the Bucks from the night before, beating them 108-100. The Celtics led by only three points heading into the final minute but got three straight stops to take the win. Jordan Crawford top scored with 25 points and Bass posted a near-double-double with 16 points and nine rebounds.
