Nuggets (8-13)106, Sixers (4-17) 98

Danilo Gallinari (24/4/3), Will Barton (22/8/3) and a big impact off the bench from Jamal Murray (22/3/2) helped the Nuggets end their 3-game losing streak. Dario Saric (17/8/0) shot 3-6 from deep for the Sixers, who were without Jahlil Okafor - among others.

Cavaliers (14-5) 116, Raptors (14-7) 112

LeBron James' (34/8/7) game-high and a double-double from Kevin Love (28/14/0) saw the Cavaliers win their first game in four attempts. Another 30+ point game for DeMar DeRozan (31/4/5) and a near double-double from Kyle Lowry (24/3/9) wasn't enough for Toronto.

Wizards (7-12) 118, Nets (5-15) 113

John Wall (25/1/13) shot 53% from the field as Bradley Beal (18/4/4) and Otto Porter Jr. (18/4/2) helped the Wizards leave Brooklyn with a much-needed win. The Nets were led by Brook Lopez (25/6/5) and Sean Kilpatrick (21/6/4) on the night.

Thunder (14-8) 102, Hawks (10-12) 99

Russell Westbrook (32/13/12) had yet another triple-double to lead the Thunder to their sixth successive win. He was 10-22 from the field and 9-14 from the stripe with 4 turnovers. Steven Adams (12/10/0) notched a double-double. Paul Millsap (24/5/4) had a team-high for the Hawks.

Trail Blazers (12-10) 112, Bulls (11-9) 110

Damian Lillard (30/4/7) and CJ McCollum (24/2/5) combined for a strong night, going 7-13 from behind the arc. Allen Crabbe's (17/5/1) rotation output was vital. Dwyane Wade's (34/4/4) game-high and another big night from Jimmy Butler (26/7/5) couldn't help the tired Bulls.

Spurs (17-4) 97, Bucks (10-9) 96

Giannis Antetokounmpo (22/11/2) and Jabari Parker (23/8/3) led the Bucks in a spirit effort but Kawhi Leonard (21/9/0) and LaMarcus Aldridge (18/9/5) were able to help preserve the Spurs' unbeaten away start to the season.

Grizzlies (14-8) 110, Pelicans (7-15) 108

Marc Gasol's (28/11/11) triple-double, Tony Allen's (19/14/0) double-double and Troy Daniels' (29/0/2) 7-11 from downtown was enough to see off the Pelicans, who had a big night from Langston Galloway (26/1/2) to go with Anthony Davis' (28/17/1) usual performance.

Celtics (12-9) 106, Rockets (14-7) 107

James Harden (37/8/8) led the Rockets to a close win but the team will be sweating over Eric Gordon (19/1/2) after he rolled his ankle in the final seconds. Boston kept it close all the way and Al Horford (21/6/9) missed a golden opportunity to win it as he fluffed a layup at the final buzzer.

Hornets (12-9) 109, Mavericks (4-16) 101

Harrison Barnes' (29/7/2) game-high night couldn't stop the Mavericks losing again. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (11/12/1) and Nicolas Batum (14/15/7) had double-doubles as Kemba Walker (19/3/4) scored a team-high for the Charlotte Hornets.

Jazz (13-9) 107, Lakers (10-13) 101

Rudy Gobert's (14/17/1) double-double and a strong scoring night from Gordon Hayward (23/6/5) saw the Utah Jazz win against a depleted L.A. Lakers team. The Purple and Gold were led by a game-high showing from Lou Williams (38/6/7).

Pacers (10-11) 106, Warriors (18-3) 142

Klay Thompson (60/2/1) went off for a career-high at the Oracle Arena, shooting 8-14 from three and 21-33 overall. Stephen Curry (13/4/11) had a double-double and Kevin Durant (20/8/4) shot 64%, but it was all about Thompson as he blew away Indiana. The Pacers were led by Paul George's (21/10/3) double-double.
