It was the most back-and-forth game so far in this NBA season with 38 lead changes. D-Wade scored the last 8 points for the Heat, and 28 for the game. His son, however, wasn’t totally impressed…
Nuggets 106 (7-13), Raptors 105 (12-8)
Denver held off a late Toronto rally to snap their 8-game losing streak. Will Barton contributed 22 off the bench, and Darrell Arthur had his best game of the year with 19.
Magic 103 (11-8), Jazz 94 (8-9)
Five games ago, Scott Skiles moved Victor Oladipo to the bench and started Channing Frye. The move has helped Oladipo’s efficiency and balanced Orlando’s starting lineup. Consequently, the Magic have now won five games in a row.
Spurs 103 (16-4), Grizzlies 83 (11-9)
Kawhi Leonard’s 7 straight three-pointers helped San Antonio build a 15-point lead early in the second half. Oh, and Pop was actually excited for his in-game interview.

The Blazers snapped Indy’s 6-game winning streak thanks to big bench efforts from Allen Crabbe (18 points, 4 treys) and Ed Davis (6 points, 13 boards). Paul George was ice cold from downtown, going 0-9 from three.
Celtics 114 (11-8), Kings 97 (7-13)
Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynyk and Jae Crowder all scored 20-plus points. Rondo was ejected for staring down a ref. Boogie was 4-17. This wasn’t even close.
