Hawks (5-2) 110, Cavaliers (6-1) 106
Dennis Schroder (28p/2r/6a), Paul Millsap (21p/5r/1a) and Kent Bazemore (25p/6r/3a) all had big scoring nights as the Hawks broke the Cavaliers' unbeaten run. Dwight Howard (7p/17r) was huge on the glass but it was Bazemore who iced the game.
Kevin Love (24p/12r/3a/2s) had a double-double while Kyrie Irving (29p/1r/4a) struggled from three, shooting 14.3% (1-7). LeBron James (23p/9r/5a) couldn't stop the loss as J.R. Smith (6p/2r/3a) failed to shoot his way out of a cold streak (2-13 FG).
Timberwolves (1-5) 110, Nets (3-4) 119
When you have a star like Brook Lopez (26p/3r/1a) it's amazing what a hard-working team can achieve. Five other Nets players - Trevor Booker (15p/9r/1a/3s) and Sean Kilpatrick (14p/5r/3a) were the picks of the bunch - scored at least 10 points.
Andrew Wiggins (36p/8r/2) had a strong night from three (6-7). Karl-Anthony Towns (21p/7r/4a) put up some good numbers but Zach LaVine (17p/2r/1a) was erratic from the field (5-16).
Nuggets (3-4) 107, Grizzlies (4-4) 108
Marc Gasol (19p/2r/6a) scored the buzzer-beating game-winner after a frantic final 7 seconds that saw Denver take the lead before turnovers from both teams. 39-year-old Vince Carter (20p/3r/5a) led the Grizzlies in scoring.
Emmanuel Mudiay (23p/4r/7a) looked to have won it for Denver with a breakaway dunk, but it wasn't to be. Danilo Gallinari (21p/7r/2a/3s) had his usual solid night. Nikola Jokic's (12p/5/2a) inability to control Mike Miller's inbound pass proved costly.
Suns (2-6) 121, Trail Blazers (5-3) 124
Damian Lillard (38p/5r/3a) and CJ McCollum (33p/6r/7a) continued their strong starts to the season as the duo outgunned Phoenix. Maurice Harkless (20p/6r/1a) also had a huge impact.
Eric Bledsoe (31p/4r/4a) and Devin Booker (23p) went toe-to-toe with them all night. T.J. Warren (12), Brandon Knight (11), PJ Tucker (11), Leandro Barbosa (10) and Dragan Bender (10) all scored double digits.
Mavericks (2-5) 109, Lakers (4-4) 97
Harrison Barnes (31p/2r/2a) came up trumps again as the Dallas Mavericks recorded their second straight victory. Without Dirk Nowitzki, it required a big night from Seth Curry (23p/4r/4a/3s) and J.J. Barea (18p/7r/8a) off the bench.
Jordan Clarkson (22p/2a/3s) and Lou Williams (15p/4r/3a) combined for 37 points in the Lakers' rotation while Julius Randle (15p/10r/1a) had a double-double.
Pelicans (0-8) 94, Kings (4-5) 102
DeMarcus Cousins (28p/4r/4a) and Rudy Gay (21p/6r/6a) were, once again, the deciding factors as Sacramento moved closer to .500. Arron Afflalo (15p/2r/2a) shot 83% from his 6 attempts.
Anthony Davis (34p/8r/1a/2s/4b) just can't buy a win regardless of the numbers he puts up for the Pelicans. Only rookie Buddy Hield (14p/2r/1a) was able to score double figures in support of 'The Brow'.
