Warriors 106 (14-0), Bulls 94 (8-4)
The Warriors’ historic run continues. Despite an excellent performance from Jimmy Butler – the 26-year-old scored 28 points with 9 rebounds and 7 assists – Golden State improved to 14-0. In addition to 27 points from Steph Curry, the Warriors received strong efforts from Harrison Barnes (20 points) and Klay Thompson (15 points). Steph Curry provided some fireworks in the first quarter by setting Andre Iguodala up for a monster jam.
Nets 95 (2-11), Celtics 120 (7-5)
Strong bench contributions from David Lee (11 points), Avery Bradley (21 points), and Evan Turner (12 points) guided the Celtics to their fourth home victory of the season.
Rockets 84 (5-8), Grizzlies 96 (7-6)
New coach, same problems. The Rockets continue to struggle after the dismissal of Kevin McHale, as Mike Conley and Marc Gasol had little problem posting big numbers at home.
Pistons 96 (7-5), Timberwolves 86 (5-8)
Andre Drummond posted a double-double en route to a gritty win over the T’Wolves. Andrew Wiggins played well in a losing effort, including an impressive two-handed dunk in the second quarter.
Spurs 90 (9-3), Pelicans 104 (2-11)
What a difference one player can make! After missing action Wednesday with a shoulder injury, Anthony Davis returned to the Pelicans lineup and reinvigorated the team with 18 rebounds and 20 points. Ryan Anderson, who’s posted excellent numbers to little fanfare, did his part as well with 30 points and 7 rebounds.
Knicks 93 (7-6), Thunder 90 (7-6)
The Thunder dropped a close game after a head-scratching sequence in the game’s final possession. Having started the season at an underwhelming 7-6, expect OKC to be subject to scrutiny.
The Knicks just won in OKC without a competent point guard and with Robin Lopez having a crunch-time seizure. Are we sure OKC is good?

Suns 114 (7-5), Nuggets 107 (6-7)
Despite briefly leaving the game with an ankle injury, Brandon Knight posted a career-high 38 points with 11 rebounds and 6 assists. Meanwhile, Nuggets head coach Michael Malone was not too thrilled with his team’s performance after the game.
"I think we have some guys on this team that pick and choose when they want to play. They're not going to play" #Nuggets coach Mike Malone

76ers 88 (0-13), Hornets 113 (7-6)
When you’re 0-13, you have to find the silver lining whenever possible. As such, 76ers fans can enjoy this video of Jerami Grant posterizing Frank Kaminsky.
Clippers 91 (6-6), Trail Blazers 102 (5-9)
