Yesterday was an interesting day in sports as more spots in the NCAA’s March Madness Tournament were clinched. There was also a crazy ending in an NBA game. Let’s go ahead and fill you in on what you might have missed in yesterday’s scores.

NBA

The Phoenix Suns beat the New Orleans Pelicans in overtime following a timeout blunder by Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry who called a timeout when he had none remaining which resulted in a technical foul and a game-winning free throw. The Oklahoma City Thunder had insult added to injury following a technical foul by Russell Westbrook, his 16th of the season, which means he’ll be suspended for their next game in the team’s loss to the Golden State Warriors. The Denver Nuggets overcame the ejection of star man Nikola Jovic as they narrowly topped the Indiana Pacers at home.
