Nets 99 (1-9), Warriors 107 (11-0)

After leading by three with 10 seconds left in the game, the wheels came off for Brooklyn. Andre Iguodala connected on a three to tie things up, and Golden State would go on a 10-0 run in overtime. Draymond Green compiled a triple-double with 16 points, 10 rebounds, and 12 assists, while Steph Curry added 34 points of his own.

Cavaliers 105 (8-2), Bucks 108 (5-5)

The Bucks persevered for an exhilarating victory in double-overtime over LeBron James and the Cavaliers. Jabari Parker and Michael Carter-Williams posted highlight-reel jams in the first half, while King James sent the game to OT with a two-handed jam, and kept it there with a clutch block. Despite LeBron’s efforts, Cleveland absorbed their second loss of the season.

Pistons 96 (5-4), Clippers 101 (6-4)

Jamal Crawford led the way with a season-high 37 points, while Blake Griffin added 34 points with eight rebounds and nine assists. Griffin pulled off a slick cross-over in the early going, sending Anthony Tolliver to the deck.

Magic 99 (5-6), Wizards 108 (4-4)

Kris Humphries led the Wizards with 23 points Saturday, going 5-for-8 beyond the ark with two blocks and five rebounds. Astonishingly, Humphries entered the year without having hit a three since the 2004-2005 season.

Mavericks 110 (6-4), Rockets 98 (4-6)

Despite playing without the services of Dirk Nowitzki, Chandler Parsons, and Wesley Matthews, the Mavericks seemingly had little trouble handing Houston their fourth home loss of the season. Raymond Felton dropped 23 points with six rebounds, earning props from head coach Rick Carlisle.

76ers 83 (0-10), Spurs 92 (7-2)

Congrats are in order for Tim Duncan, whose five-block performance propelled him past David “The Admiral” Robinson on the NBA All-Time Blocks List. Congrats are not in order for the 76ers, who are still looking for their first win of the season.

Nuggets 81 (5-5), Suns 105 (5-4)

The Suns pounced on a lethargic Denver team, led by a 30-point effort from Eric Bledsoe. Mirza Teletovic put in work off the bench, recording 11 points and nine rebounds in Saturday’s victory.
