On the last Thursday night regular season episode of NBA on TNT we saw the league's two best teams in action, and both of them fell on the road to potential playoff opponents.
The Bulls stunned the Cavs, who were without LeBron James and gained a much needed win. They still are going to have to get 2-3 more wins to make the playoffs, but they face the team standing in their way, the Toronto Raptors, on Sunday so there is an opportunity to better their position there.
The second game was another thriller where the Nuggets got a statement win over the Lakers. Sure, they were without Kobe, but this was still a big win.
