Philadelphia 76ers 127 def. Brooklyn Nets 125
The Sixers rallied from 20 points down to overrun Brooklyn on the road behind Jimmy Butler’s game-winning three-pointer.
Just eight days after Butler’s late-game heroics sunk the Charlotte Hornets, the dual All-Star proved again why he is such a valuable asset to the City of Brotherly Love.

Utah Jazz 133 def. Sacramento Kings 112
The Kings stayed with the Donovan Mitchell-less Jazz for the three quarters, but were ultimately outrun in the final 12 minutes.
Ricky Rubio (27 points, seven rebounds, five assists), Rudy Gobert (18 points, 15 rebounds, five assists) and Joe Ingles (18 points on 75 per cent shooting and six assists) lit it up for the Jazz.
For Sacramento, Bogdan Bogdanovic recorded a team-high 20 points, while Marvin Bagley produced 18 points off the bench.
Mitchell suffered a rib contusion against the Lakers on Saturday (AEST) and the injury could be considered day-to-day.
The Jazz are now 9-11 on the season but sit in the West’s 15th position.
