Mavericks (3-15) 87, Hornets (11-8) 97

Kemba Walker (18/3/5) led the Charlotte Hornets in scoring as they won their third game in the last four. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (14/3/2) shot 4-9 as Roy Hibbert (11/4/2) and Jeremy Lamb (12/6/2) made an impact off the bench.

Without Dirk Nowitzki once again, it was the same old story for Dallas this season. Harrison Barnes (17/9/1) had a team-high, shooting 8-20. Justin Anderson (15/3/0) was strong in the rotation.

Bucks (9-8) 111, Nets (5-13) 93

Giannis Antetokounmpo (23/8/8) and Jabari Parker (23/3/2) led the Milwaukee Bucks to their third consecutive victory. John Henson (12/8/1) had five big blocks on the night and Tony Snell (13/5/1) shot 3-6 from behind the arc.

The Nets were led by Brook Lopez (15/4/2) and Bojan Bogdanovic (13/3/1) but never looked liked getting anything from this game as the Bucks were in complete control.

Magic (7-12) 94, Grizzlies (12-8) 95

A pair of Mark Gasol (25/2/3) free throws in the clutch gave the Memphis Grizzlies a one-point lead they held on to with some great defence. The shorthanded home team had a big night from Troy Daniels (19/2/1).

The Magic incredibly failed to get a shot off at the buzzer and suffered their fifth defeat in six outings. Evan Fournier (28/0/4) shot 79% from the field. Nikola Vucevic (18/11/0) had a double-double.

Clippers (15-5) 113, Cavaliers (13-4) 94

JJ Redick's (23/2/1) strong shooting night and Blake Griffin's (13/5/11) double-double helped the Clippers end their run of three straight defeats. Chris Paul (16/6/9) had a strong game as the Clippers's bench helped overcome the defending champs.

It's now two straight defeat for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Kyrie Irving's (28/2/2) game-high scoring could not help avoid the blowout. LeBron James (16/5/5) shot 36%. JR Smith (3/2/1) had another poor game.

Heat (7-12) 111, Jazz (11-9) 110

Goran Dragic (27/4/6) led the Miami Heat to their second consecutive road win as James Johnson (24/6/3) ended the outing in Salt Lake City with a new season-high. Hassan Whiteside (9/10/0) came a point away from a double-double.

Goron Hayward (32/3/7) missed a game-winning jump shot, but was the best player on the court for Utah. Joe Johnson (18/3/4) shot 67%.

Rockets (12-7) 132, Warriors (16-3) 127

James Harden (29/15/13) notched his fourth triple-double of the campaign as the Houston Rockets won this double-overtime thriller in the Bay Area. Ryan Anderson (29/5/0) and Eric Gordon (23/1/5) had strong shooting nights as Houston snapped Golden State's winning run.

Kevin Durant's (39/13/2) big night was not enough for the Warriors. Stephen Curry (28/3/5) shot 41% and Draymond Green (20/15/9) almost had a triple-double.
