Dose: Season-low 15 for Harden

The Celtics spanked the Knicks , the Blazers routed the Suns , and the Jazz destroyed the Rockets despite an early Rudy Gobert ejection and an off night by Donovan Mitchell .

Tim Hardaway Jr. hit 7-of-19 shots and six triples to lead the way for the Knicks with 22 points, and added a couple assists and a steal to his line.

Lillard was the only starter to score in double figures, and Zach Collins was the only other Blazer to join him and Layman in that rare air with 10 points.

For the Suns, Richaun Holmes started over Deandre Ayton, who reportedly wasn’t feeling well, but was quiet with just nine points and four rebounds in 21 minutes.

Okobo got solid minutes and was decent, but the fact he’s been running the show the last two nights when they were blown out 70-18 in first quarters is a concern, even though he was guarding Seth Curry, who didn’t do anything.

De’Anthony Melton , who went crazy on Tuesday, played 26 minutes, but hit just 3-of-12 shots (he started the game 0-for-7) for seven points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals.
