DeMarcus Cousins (36/20/4) had a huge night for the Sacremento Kings - he took 34 attempts from the field, making 16. Rudy Gay (18/5/2) and Ty Lawson (12/0/3) were the only other players in double figures.

Sixers (4-14) 95, Raptors (11-6) 122

Kyle Lowry (24/4/8) led the Toronto Raptors to a season-high scoring night as he shot a perfect 6-6 from three-point land. Terrence Ross (22/3/0) had a season-high game himself and Jonas Valanciunas (12/11/0) had a double-double before rolling his ankle. DeMar DeRozan (14/5/5) had a quiet night.

The Philadelphia 76ers rested Joel Embiid. Robert Covington (20/5/2) led the team in scoring and Jahlil Okafor (15/50) had a productive night starting at center. Ersan Ilyasova, Sergio Rodriguez, Nik Stauskas and Richaun Holmes all had 11.

Thunder (11-8) 112, Knicks (8-9) 103

Russell Westbrook (27/18/14) had his eighth triple-double of the season as the Oklahoma City Thunder won their third straight game. He shot just 9-23 from the field but was a perfect 7-7 from the free throw line. Steven Adams (14/10/0) and Enes Kanter (27/10/0) had valuable double-doubles.

Derrick Rose (30/7/4) led the game in scoring as Kristaps Porzingis (21/5/2) and Courtney Lee (13/3/1) hit double figures. Carmelo Anthony (18/8/2) was only 4-19 from the field.

Celtics (10-7) 112, Heat (5-12) 104

Isaiah Thomas (25/4/8) continued his fine form as the Boston Celtics made it five wins in seven - with four straight victories on the road. Avery Bradley (18/6/2) and Jae Crowder (17/4/3) helped ensure the game remained out of reach for Miami. Kelly Olynyk (14/6/4) was 66.7% from downtown.

Goran Dragic (27/2/17) had himself a night and Hassan Whiteside (25/17/2) had his usually productive game, but Rodney McGruder (11/5/0) and Josh Richardson (12/4/0) were the only other players to impact the game for a depleted Miami.

Hornets (10-7) 104, Grizzlies (11-7) 85

Jeremy Lamb (21/9/0) had a big night off the bench for Charlotte as he and Kemba Walker (21/3/3) tied the game-high. It's now two straight wins for the Hornets after a run of four consecutive defeats. Frank Kaminsky (12/6/3) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (14/7/2) also had double figures.

Marc Gasol (19/8/1) and Mike Conley (14/1/5) could not stop the Memphis Grizzlies sliding to their second loss in three games. Jarell Martin (11/12/0) was the only other player in double digits as Zach Randolph did not play.

Jazz (10-8) 112, Timberwolves (5-12) 103

Rudy Gobert's (16/17/1) double-double led the Utah Jazz to their third win on the bounce as Geroge Hill (24/8/4) and Gordon Hayward (24/5/2) had big scoring nights. Trey Lyles (13/1/1) hit double figures. The Jazz struggled as a collective from behind the arc - going just 4-18.

Zach LaVine (28/8/8) and Karl-Anthony Towns (19/12/1) could not stop the Minnesota Timberwolves losing their sixth in eight games as another second half collapse saw them drop this home encounter. Andrew Wiggins (13/2/4) struggled from the field (6-16).

Hawks (10-8) 100, Warriors (16-2) 105

Kevin Durant (25/14/3) and Stephen Curry (25/3/3) combined for 50 points as the Warriors continued their winning run with another impressive display. Draymond Green (4/3/7) led the team in rebounds and blocks (4). Klay Thompson (20/4/2) was 50% (3-6) from downtown.

Paul Millsap's (14/14/3) and Dwight Howard's (14/16/0) double-doubles could not lead the Hawks to an unlikely victory at the Oracle Arena, but they made Golden State work until the end. Dennis Schroder (24/1/6) had a team-high scoring night.
