Cameron Johnson and Danny Green each scored 13 points to lead their teams to victories on Friday night while Coby White overcame a knee injury.

Danny Green’s four 3-pointers, including a big one with 3:55 left, helped Philadelphia in the Sixers’ 112–105 home win over Chicago. Tony Bradley didn’t play for the Sixers.

Coby White suffered a left knee contusion in the first quarter and missed the entire second quarter before returning in the second half. He finished with nine points, six rebounds and five assists in 27 minutes.


Johnson collected three 3-pointers and three rebounds to score in double figures for the first time in six games. It was his first time with multiple 3-pointers in four games. The 9.1 game score was his highest since putting up a 12.8 six games ago against Boston.


In Detroit’s 109–95 loss at Memphis, Wayne Ellington collected 10 points and five assists. It was his first time scoring in double figures in eight games.


Justin Jackson had two points in six minutes of Oklahoma City’s 98–85 loss at Milwaukee. He played fewer than 10 minutes for consecutive games for the first time since late January.

His minutes dropped after Theo Maledon (30 minutes Friday) came back from a COVID-19 pause and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (36) returned from a knee injury.
