Football may be on most minds during November, but we didn't forget about the NBA. We're here to recap what happened Sunday and preview tonight's action. Without further ado, let's get to it.
Toronto Raptors 91, Los Angels Clippers 80
The Clippers dropped below .500 with the loss, while the Raptors are now 9-6. Three players scored 20 or more for Toronto, as Luis Scola had 20 and DeMarre Carroll and DeMar DeRozan had 21 each. J.J. Redick led the way for LA, with 17 points. Chris Paul had a double-double, but was also just 5 of 13 from the field.
Brooklyn Nets 111, Boston Celtics 101
The Nets notched their third win of the season by beating Boston. Five players put up double figures, with Brook Lopez' 23 leading the way. The bulk of the damage for Boston came from guard Avery Bradley and Isaiah Thomas. They each had 27 points.
New Orleans Pelicans 122, Phoenix Suns 116
Plagued by injures, the win over the Suns was just New Orleans' third of the year. Anthony Davis put 32 points, 19 rebounds and four blocks, all of which were game highs. He got some help from Ryan Anderson, who added 29 points off the bench. Eric Bledsoe scored 29 for the Suns.
Oklahoma City Thunder 117, Dallas Mavericks 114
Despite missing Kevin Durant, the Thunder beat the Mavs behind a strong game from Russell Westbrook. He dropped 31 points and 11 assists. Six players scored at least 12 points for the Thunder. Deron Williams led the way for the Mavs, scoring 20.
Golden State Warriors 118, Denver Nuggets 105
The Warriors tied the mark for best start to season, improving to 15-0 with the win over Denver. The Splash Brothers led the way for the Warriors. Both had seven assists, Thompson scored 21 and Curry added 19. Darrell Arthur had 21 for Denver. The Nuggets were just 4 of 15 beyond the arc, while Golden State was 15 of 29.
Portland Trail Blazers 107, Los Angeles Lakers 93
Damian Lillard carried Portland to a win, putting up 30 points, 13 assists and six rebounds. Kobe Bryant had 18 points, but was just 6 of 22 from the field. The Lakers are still searching for their third win of the season.
Sacramento Kings @ Charlotte Hornets
The Kings have lost two of their last three, with their lone win coming in their last game against the Magic. The Kings are 5-9 and will need a big game from DeMarcus Cousins. The Hornets are 7-6 and in the position to make a push for the playoffs.
Orlando Magic @ Cleveland Cavaliers
The Cavs are favored by 8.5, but are down several starters and contributors. The Cavs have rebounded from two straight losses with two straight wins.
New York Knicks @ Miami Heat
Both teams have eight wins, but the Knicks have six losses against the Heat's four. Miami is favored by five in this one.
Detroit Pistons @ Milwaukee Bucks
The 7-6 Pistons are favored by 3 points against the Bucks. Milwaukee has dropped three straight since it upset Cleveland.
Philadelphia 76ers @ Minnesota Timberwolves
The 76ers are still searching for their first win and it might not come against a 5-8 Minnesota squad. The Timberwolves are 7.5 point favorites.
San Antonio Spurs @ Phoenix Suns
The Spurs are 10-3, humming along as they usually do during the regular season. That shouldn't change against a Suns team that isn't as good as San Antonio.
Oklahoma City Thunder @ Utah Jazz
Kevin Durant has missed a few games with a hamstring issue, but is expected to return this week. He could do so as soon as tonight against the Jazz. Despite being just 6-6, the Jazz are four point favorites.Back to the NBA Newsfeed
