Nets (4-8) 105, Thunder (8-5) 124

Russell Westbrook grabbed his fourth triple-double of the season as his 30 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists drove the Thunder past Brooklyn.

Brook Lopez's 22 points led the resistance for the Nets, but with Victor Oladipo also contributing 26 points for the hosts, the Nets had no answer to the Thunder's supreme athleticism.

Hawks (9-3) 96, Hornets (8-3) 100

Three players scoring north of 20 points helped Charlotte keep up their tremendous start to the season and inflict defeat on one of their Eastern Conference playoff rivals.

Kemba Walker (21 points), Nicolas Batum (24 points) and Cody Zeller (23 points) led the way for the Hornets while both Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard posted double-doubles in response for Atlanta.

Suns (4-9) 116, Pacers (6-7) 96

Without Paul George the Pacers slumped to yet another defeat and the Suns picked up a precious road victory thanks to a nice spread of scoring.

Alex Len and Alan Williams both posted double-doubles for Phoenix, while all of Brandon Knight (17), Devin Booker (13), Jared Dudley (16), Tyler Ulis (10) and Leandro Barbosa (13) all hit double digits. Myles Turner had a game-high 22 points for Indiana, but only Jeff Teague's 21 points backed him up.

Pistons (6-7) 81, Cavaliers (10-2) 104

Kyrie Irving scored 25 points and dropped 11 assists to lead the Cavaliers to their 10th win of the season and only Detroit's Jon Leuer managed to get into double figures for the visitors.

It was a comprehensive all-around performance from the NBA champions and Tristan Thompson outrebounded Andre Drummond 14-10, too. LeBron James had 21 points while Kevin Love weighed in with a double-double of 12 points and 13 boards.

Trail Blazers (7-7) 101, Pelicans (3-10) 113

Anthony Davis was at it again as The Brow dropped 38 points on Portland to almost single-handedly drive New Orleans to their third win of the campaign.

The forward also had nine boards, six assists and four blocks, while Jrue Holiday chimed in with 21 points. The Trail Blazers' backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum responded with a combined 51 points, but Davis could not be stopped.

Warriors (10-2) 104, Celtics (6-6) 88

Klay Thompson scored a game-high 28 points against the team he was rumoured to want to join earlier this week to lead the Warriors to victory.

Kevin Durant came close to a triple-double with 23 points, 10 boards and 7 dimes, as did Draymond Green with a stat-line of 11, eight and eight respectively. Stephen Curry managed 16 points while the backcourt of Avery Bradley and Isiah Thomas led Boston's resistance with a combined 35 points.

Grizzlies (7-5) 80, Mavericks (2-9) 64

The Mavericks' woeful start to the season continued as they were restricted to just 64 points without Dirk Nowitzki and Deron Williams, and Harrison Barnes led their scoring with 15 points.

Chandler Parsons had a team-high 12 points for Memphis on his return to Dallas and was joined in double-digits by Marc Gasol, Tony Allen and Zach Randolph. The Mavericks had a field goal percentage of 28.8 percent after going 21-for-73 from the field.

Raptors (8-4) 113, Nuggets (4-8) 111

DeMar DeRozan officially cannot be stopped as he once again produced a 30-point game that led Toronto to a victory over Denver.

Contributions from Kyle Lowry (18 points), Jonas Valancuinas (15), Terrence Ross (16) and DeMarre Carroll (11) sealed the deal for the Canadian franchise while a combined 50 points from Emmanuel Mudiay and Wilson Chandler wasn't enough for the Nuggets.

Clippers (10-2) 121, Kings (4-8) 115

DeMarcus Cousins' 38 points was not enough for the home side as the Clippers continued their rich vein of form behind Blake Griffin's 29 points.

Doc Rivers' men put the loss to Memphis behind them as 26 points from JJ Redick and a pair of double-doubles from Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan captured the Clippers' 10th win of the season. Ty Lawson came close to a triple-double for the Kings as they battled to the end, but despite registering 18 points, seven boards and eight assists, it wasn't enough.

Spurs (10-3) 116, Lakers (7-6) 107

A fine Kawhi Leonard performance that featured 23 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and two steals led the Spurs to a win over a difficult Lakers side full of confidence.

LaMarcus Aldridge also contributed 23 points, Tony Parker had 16 and Pau Gasol also produced 16 against the franchise he won two NBA titles with. The Lakers were missing D'Angelo Russell, but Julius Randle threatened to register his second triple-double of the season with 13 points, nine boards and seven assists while Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams continued their hot form from the pine with a combined 44 points.
