While the Washington Wizards had the weekend to improve in practice after losing to the New York Knicks on Friday night, the rest of the NBA was hard at work under the bright lights.

In an anticipated showdown on Sunday, the Los Angeles Lakers lost 113-103 to the Orlando Magic at the Staples Center. Dwight Howard faced his old team for the first time and came up on the short end despite pouring in 21 points and nabbing 15 rebounds.

On Saturday night, the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Memphis Grizzles 99-95 in overtime at home. San Antonio has been under a lot of fire for sitting Tony Parker, Danny Green, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili against the Miami Heat earlier in the week, but the move paid off.

In Milwaukee, the Bucks pulled off a stirring comeback to down the visiting Boston Celtics 91-88. Milwaukee was down 17-0 to start the game before coming back on the strength of Brandon Jennings' scoring ability.
