Meanwhile, the league's two best sides on current form - Milwaukee Bucks and LA Lakers were stunned by the Philadelphia 76ers and LA Clippers respectively.

Moving aside for from the game, Inside the NBA on 'NBA on TNT' had another fun night analysing the Christmas games. Along with host Ernie Johnson, former players and now analysts Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O'Neal were in a fine festive mood. O'Neal and Barkley resorted to their usual banter and also attempted (and failed) to sing Christmas carols.
