KINGS (1-6) 83; PACERS (4-3) 101

Bojan Bogdanovic (17/3/4) led a balanced offensive performance from Indiana as they thumped Sacramento at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Domantas Sabonis (12/16/5) added a double-double with Thaddeus Young (15/4/0) and Victor Oladipo (14/4/2) also hitting double figures.

Rookie De'Aaron Fox (18/4/5) led the visitors in scoring with a career-high. But Zach Randolph (12/5/0) was the only other player in double digits for the visitors as they suffered another low-scoring game. 

SUNS (3-4) 122; NETS (3-5) 114

Devin Booker (32/7/4) had a huge night for Phoenix as they came away with a win at Barclays Center.

Mike James (24/3/5) also came up big and T.J. Warren (20/11/0) added a double-double, with 14 of his points coming in the fourth quarter to help close out the game.

Point guard D'Angelo Russell (33/6/4) had a game-high shooting 11-of-21 from the field but it wasn't enough to get the win at home. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (21/7/1) also had a strong game but Brooklyn has now lost three straight games since beating the Cleveland Cavaliers last week.

THUNDER (4-3) 110; BUCKS (4-3) 91

OKC's star-studded lineup proved too strong for Milwaukee with Paul George (20/3/0) leading them in scoring.

Carmelo Anthony (17/8/1) put up good numbers and Russell Westbrook (12/10/9) was one assist shy of another triple-double. Jerami Grant (17/4/2) was also huge off the bench. 

New York Knicks v Oklahoma City Thunder

Giannis Antetokounmpo (28/8/3) did his part to try and rally the Bucks but no other player on his team hit double figures as they struggled offensively. 

PISTONS (5-3) 93; LAKERS (3-4) 113

Los Angeles snapped a two-game losing streak with a huge win over the early-season surprise package in Detroit. In a balanced offensive performance, they had seven players in double digits with Julius Randle (17/7/3) and Kyle Kuzma (16/6/3) leading the charge off the bench. 

Larry Nance Jr. (14/12/2) added a double-double and rookie Lonzo Ball (13/6/3) had a better game than his previous two outings. 

After beating the Clippers and Warriors on their west coast road trip, the Pistons failed to match that performance level in this game. They were led by Tobias Harris (18/4/2) and Reggie Jackson (18/7/5) in the loss.
