The Morning Roundup 2/13/19

Today’s morning roundup is very special because it will be posted after we have eclipsed 100 posts. That is a big deal to us, and it wouldn’t be possible without the readership of you, our wonderful readers. If you haven’t already, I speak for all of us when I say that we would love for you to share us with whomever you think may be interested in our content. We have more great content coming, and now I will stop rambling and get to the business of recapping yesterday in sports.

NBA

The Atlanta Hawks surprisingly beat the Los Angeles Lakers last night, despite the Lakers improvement since the return of LeBron James. The San Antonio Spurs ended their losing streak following a narrow victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. The Orlando Magic easily defeated the New Orleans Pelicans who at times looked like a team that had capitulated on the season.

Atlanta Hawks 117-113 Los Angeles Lakers
Boston Celtics 112-109 Philadelphia 76ers
San Antonio Spurs 108-107 Memphis Grizzlies
Orlando Magic 118-88 New Orleans Pelicans
