The Golden State Warriors recovered from their surprise loss to the Los Angeles Lakers to set a new record for consecutive home wins. 

After falling to a blowout loss in L.A., the Warriors returned to the Bay looking for some home comforts.

Stephen Curry provided just that as he ended the night with 41, becoming the fastest ever player to reach 300 three-point shots in a season - finishing with seven of 13 from deep.

Klay Thompson, who missed all eight of his attempts from behind the arc at the Staples Center, had 27 as he shot 45.5 percent from range. 

The Magic were down 17 points heading into the fourth quarter but staged a small comeback. Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon and Brandon Jennings all had 20 points.

Spurs 91, Pacers 99

The San Antonio Spurs failed to keep the pressure on the Warriors at the top of the Western Conference as their three-point shooting eluded them in Indiana. 

The Spurs shot a collective 14.3 percent from deep off 28 attempts as Paul George and Monta Ellis led the seventh-placed Eastern Conference franchise to a win.

Ellis had 26 points to go along with three assists and two blocks while George ended the night with 23 points, shooting 100 percent from the charity stripe. 

Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge had 23 each but Paddy Mills was the only other member of the roster to reach double figures on a difficult shooting night for Gregg Popovich's men.

Grizzlies 106, Cavaliers 103

The Cleveland Cavaliers dropped their sixth home game of the season with a surprise loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. 

LeBron James shot 11 of 19 from the field to finish with 28 while Kyrie Irving ended the night with 27 off 56.3 percent. 

LeBron hit a three-point shot with three seconds remaining to cut the Grizzlies' lead to one but two clutch free throws from Vince Carter secured the win for the fifth-placed Western Conference franchise. 

Tony Allen led the way with 26 but it was a fantastic team effort from Memphis as five players reached double figures. 

Clippers 109, Mavericks 90

The Los Angeles Clippers took their impressive road record to 20-10 for the season with a big win in Dallas as Chris Paul, J. J. Redick and DeAndre Jordan combined for 72 points. 

Paul, as he often does, led the way with 27 points to go with his seven assists and three steals while Jordan posted 20 boards along with his 23 points. 

Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 for the home side but failed to sink a three, of his four attempts. David Lee and Raymond Felton were the only other Mavs to reach double figures. 

Chandler Parson failed to get any rhythm going as he shot 25 percent from the field to end the night with nine points. 

Timberwolves 103, Hornets 108

The Charlotte Hornets increased their win streak to four games as they tighten their grip on a place in the playoffs. 

Kemba Walker was the standout performer for the Michael Jordan-owned franchise as he finished with 34 points to put Charlotte 2.5 games ahead of Detroit, who are ninth in the East.

Al Jefferson scored 20 off the bench while Marvin Williams had 15 as the Hornets held off a young Timberwolves side. 

Karl-Anthony Towns had 28 for Minnesota while two-time Dunk Contest champion Zach LaVine showed off his array of talents with a 360 slam on his way to 19 points on the night. 

Bucks 90, Bulls 100

Jimmy Butler was not needed by the Chicago Bulls as they overcame the Milwaukee Bucks without their leading points scorer.

Pau Gasol was the deciding factor on the night as he finished with a triple-double to lead the Bulls to a ten points victory. 

Gasol's 12 points, 13 assists and 17 rebounds helped the six-time champions move into eighth in the Eastern Conference. Derrick Rose also had 22 points. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo continued his impressive form of late with a 12 point, ten assist double-double. Jerryd Bayless finished with 20 points while Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton had 18 each.

Kings 112, Pelicans 115

DeMarcus Cousins' 40 points could not stop the Sacramento Kings falling to a loss as Anthony Davis inspired the Pelicans to a win. 

Cousins shot 16 of 29 from the field to finish with the game-high personal score. But it was Davis along with Jrue Holiday, fresh into the starting lineup, who had the last laugh.

Davis finished with a double-double of 31 points and ten rebounds while Holiday had 20 points and ten assists. 

Rajon Rondo also had a double-double for the Kings as he made ten assists to go with his 18 points. Cousins' 40 points were accompanied by 16 boards.
