Pistons (9-10) 112, Hornets (10-8) 89
Tobias Harris (24/7/2) shot 75% from the field for the Pistons as they won their third in four games. Marcus Morris (18/4/0) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (18/7/7) stepped up after Andre Drummond (3/6/1) was ejected early on for a flagrant 2.
Kemba Walker (23/2/4) was offered little in the way of scoring support as only two other Charlotte players reached double figures; Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (10/4/0) and Marco Belinelli (11/2/2).
Clippers (14-5) 122, Nets (5-12) 127
Sean Kilpatrick (38/14/2) had a career-high as he led the Nets to a double-overtime victory. Brook Lopez (27/8/4) also had a big night as Trevor Booker (15/11/5) notched a double-double. Bojan Bogdanovic (14/6/2) and Joe Harris (15/1/1) were impressive for the Eastern Conference strugglers.
In the absence of Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan (21/23/1) and Chris Paul (26/10/13) did their best to step up. JJ Redick (18/2/2) had a strong outing. Doc Rivers was ejected from the game in the final overtime period after reacting angrily to a foul call of Paul.
Cavaliers (13-3) 101, Bucks (8-8) 118
Giannis Antetokounmpo (34/12/5) tied his career-high in a dominant performance that included five steals and two blocks. Malcolm Brogdon (10/1/3), Michael Beasley (17/2/2) and Greg Monroe (14/6/4) combined for 41 valuable points off the bench. Jabari Parker (18/4/1) supported Giannis.
LeBron James (22/4/4), Kevin Love (13/13/2) and Kyrie Irving (20/2/3) put up their usually impressive numbers for the Cavs but there was nothing else to write home about as their bench mustered just 32 points.
Lakers (9-10) 88, Pelicans (7-12) 105
Anthony Davis (41/16/3) continued his mind-blowing start to the campaign, shooting 51.9% on his 27 field goal attempts. He was also 12-14 from the stripe. Jrue Holiday (22/2/5) continues to make a huge difference for the Pelicans. Omer Asik (10/11/1) had a double-double.
Lou Williams (16/3/4), Julius Randle (12/10/3) and Timofey Mozgov (10/9/0) were the only players in double figures as Nick Young managed just 2 minutes of action before leaving the game with a leg injury.
Magic (7-11) 95, Spurs (14-4) 83
Serge Ibaka (18/7/2) led a fantastic team effort from Orlando as they left San Antonio with an unlikely win. Aaron Gordon (11/3/0), Evan Fournier (13/3/7), Nikola Vucevic (12/10/0) and Elfrid Payton (10/3/4), who suffered an ankle injury, all made their presence felt in Texas.
The Spurs had a season-low point total and a season-high 19 turnovers. Kawhi Leonard (21/2/0), LaMarcus Aldridge (16/6/3) and Manu Ginobili (13/6/3) were the only performances of note. Tony Parker and David Lee were ice-cold - shooting 0%.
Rockets (11-7) 101, Jazz (11-8) 120
Rudy Gobert (16/14/0) already had a double-double at halftime as the Jazz cruised to victory. Gordon Hayward (31/5/7) also had a big game with a season-high as Rodney Hood (19/2/3) and Trey Lyles (13/4/1) impacted the scoring.
James Harden (26/5/7) couldn't get his customary double-double for the Rockets. Ryan Anderson (11/2/0) and Sam Dekker (10/6/0) were the only other players outside of Eric Gordon (24/2/1) to reach double figures.
