CLIPPERS (5-10) 87; HORNETS (6-9) 102

Charlotte snapped a six-game losing streak behind a big performance from All-Star Kemba Walker (26/2/6). Center Dwight Howard (16/16/1) added a huge double-double and Jeremy Lamb (17/4/1) made a vital contribution off the bench.

It's now eight straight losses for the Clippers as their miserable run continues. They were led in scoring by Lou Williams (25/2/4). Blake Griffin (19/8/4) had strong numbers again and DeAndre Jordan (10/14/2) had a double-double. 

JAZZ (7-10) 125; MAGIC (8-8) 85

Rodney Hood (31/5/2) put on a huge offensive display to lead Utah to a rout over Orlando, drilling a career-high seven three-pointers. Derrick Favors (25/11/3) also played a big part adding an impressive double-double and shooting an efficient 10-of-12 from the field. 

The Magic have now lost four in a row and six of the last eight but this was by far their worst defeat of the season. Aaron Gordon (18/9/1) had a team-high in what was a night to forget.

CELTICS (15-2) 110; HAWKS (3-13) 99

Boston made it 15 consecutive wins by seeing off Atlanta and keeping their stunning streak alive. Kyrie Irving (30/4/5) put on an offensive clinic by shooting 10-of-12 and 5-of-6 from downtown. Jaylen Brown (27/4/0) continued his excellent start to the season by dropping a career-high. 

Atlanta put up a good fight but squandered a 16-point lead. Dennis Schroder (23/2/9) led the home team and Kent Bazemore (19/3/4) also had a strong night but they still have the worst record in the east.

WARRIORS (12-4) 124; SIXERS (8-7) 116

The defending champions overcame a 22-point half-time deficit to see off a resilient 76ers team. Stephen Curry (35/5/5) had a game-high and dropped 20 points in the third quarter where the Dubs outscored their opponents 47-15. Kevin Durant (27/5/3) also had a big game. 

Ben Simmons (23/8/12) was just two rebounds shy of a triple-double as Philly failed to cap a terrific 74-point first half by securing a win. All five starters were in double figures as Joel Embiid (21/8/3), Robert Covington (20/6/1) and J.J. Redick (20/1/2) all put up good numbers. 

ROCKETS (13-4) 105; GRIZZLIES (7-8) 83

James Harden (29/5/7) once again produced a brilliant display to lead Houston to a resounding road win. Chris Paul (17/2/6) had another steady game after his return from injury and Clint Capela (17/13/0) posted a double-double.

Memphis lost its fourth game in a row and have now dropped below .500. Chandler Parsons (17/2/1) had a team-high. Marc Gasol (15/9/4) shot just 6-of-17 from the floor as they struggled offensively.

BUCKS (8-7) 79; MAVERICKS (3-14) 111

Dallas produced a surprisingly huge win as they crushed Milwaukee on their home court. Wesley Matthews (22/2/8) scored a season-high and Harrison Barnes (18/7/1) had himself a good night. J.J. Barea (20/3/7) and Yogi Ferrell (16/4/1) made huge contributions off the bench. 

The defeat ends a four-game winning run for the Bucks who had a terrible offensive night. Giannis Antetokounmpo (24/17/2) and Khris Middleton (23/0/2) were the only players in double digits.

KINGS (4-12) 90; TRAIL BLAZERS (9-7) 102

It didn't take Portland long to avenge their defeat in Sacramento the previous night as they split their home-and-home with their opponents. Backcourt duo C.J. McCollum (25/3/4) and Damian Lillard (22/2/6) put on big performances as usual for the Blazers.

Willie Cauley-Stein (18/9/0) was the leading scorer for the Kings and veteran Zach Randolph (17/5/0) also had a solid night but they shot just 38 percent from the field as a team.
