Suns 93 (14-33), Cavs 115 (32-12)

Cleveland opened the second half with a 12-0 run and sent Phoenix to its 17th loss in 19 games. LeBron James and JR Smith led a third quarter charge with an off-the-backboard alley-oop.

Nuggets 103 (17-29), Celtics 111 (26-21)

Avery Bradley led the way with 27 points and 4 steals as Boston won their fourth straight.

76ers 97 (7-40), Pistons 110 (25-21)

After a sub-par previous two games, Andre Drummond got rolling again with a 25-point, 18-rebound performance. Nerlens Noel, who’s been going up against Dre since high school, was able to get his, though.

Clippers 85 (30-16), Hawks 83 (27-20)

Paul Millsap missed a potential game-tying layup with 1 second left and the Clippers escaped with the W.

Thunder 126 (35-13), T-Wolves 123 (14-33)

Kevin Durant had 27 points and 9 rebounds and hit two huge shots in the final two minutes to seal the deal for OKC. Karl-Anthony Towns led the way for Minnesota, and provided a poster dunk as the Wolves tried to make one last push.

Rockets 99 (25-23), Spurs 130 (39-7)

San Antonio bounced back from a 30-point loss to the Warriors with a 31-point win over the Rockets, improving to 25-0 at home this season.

Hornets 73 (22-24), Jazz 102 (20-25)

Utah held Charlotte to a season-low 73 points, fueled by a 20-2 Jazz run in the second quarter. The Jazz are just getting healthy again, and its defense has been elite recently.

Mavs 107 (26-22), Warriors 127 (42-4)

It was all Klay Thompson, all the time. He scored a season-high 45 as the Warriors became the first team in over 20 years to record over 30 assists in five straight games.
