Nuggets (1-2) 102, Raptors (2-1) 105
Kyle Lowry had his best shooting night of the season so far as the Toronto Raptors squeezed past the Denver Nuggets in a tight encounter at the Air Canada Centre.
The Raptors needed all of Lowry's and DeMar DeRozan's 29 and 33 points respectively as they were given a fright on Halloween by Denver.
The Nuggets missed a chance to send the game into overtime but were in it until the very end thanks to a big showing from their starters - especially Jusuf Nurkic, who had 13 points and 18 assists.
Bulls (3-0) 118, Nets (1-3) 88
Another strong three-point shooting night for the Chicago Bulls continued their perfect start to the season as they saw off the Brooklyn Nets.
Heading into the game as the league's highest-scoring team, Chicago picked up where they left off with seven players reaching double-figures. Jimmy Butler had 22 while Nikola Mirotic (16) and Isaiah Canaan (15) were huge sparks off the bench.
Brooklyn just struggled to get anything going all night; shooting 34% as a team. Jeremy Lin boosted that average with 14 points on 60% but there wasn't much else to write home about.
Kings (2-2) 95, Hawks (3-0) 106
Dwight Howard came up big once again for the Atlanta Hawks, who remain unbeaten thanks to a win over the Sacramento Kings.
Howard (18p/11r) and Paul Millsap (13p/14r) were dominant in the front court and were supported by the sharpshooting Kyle Korver (5/8 3pts).
Rudy Gay dropped 22 points for the Kings while DeMarcus Cousins (14p/12r) had his usual double-double, but it wasn't enough for the Western Conference franchise.
Suns (0-4) 98, Clippers (2-0) 116
The Phoenix Suns can't buy a win right now and were easily dispatched at the Staples Center by the dominant L.A. Clippers.
DeAndre Jordan, who was playing with a sprained right thumb, finished the game with a double-double (19p/11r), as did Blake Griffin (21p/11r). Chris Paul had a +/- of 21 as he ended the game with 24 points, 8 assists and 2 steals.
Without Devin Booker, the Suns struggled to live with the Clippers. Brandon Knight led their scoring with 18.
