Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points and collected 11 rebounds to lead San Antonio past Utah, 100-86.

Leonard dominated offensively, shooting 50 percent (9 of 18) from the field and 100 percent (10 of 10) from the foul line. LaMarcus Aldridge chipped in 19 points for the Spurs, and Patty Mills, starting in place of injured Tony Parker, added 16.


Knicks 117, Bulls 104

Kristaps Porzingis scored 27 points and all five New York starters reached double figures against Chicago.

The Knicks opened the fourth quarter with a 10-0 run to break the game open after the Bulls erased an early double-figure deficit and led in the third quarter.

Raptors 96, Heat 87

DeMar DeRozan had 34 points and Toronto defeated Miami to extend their winning streak to three games.

DeRozan set a club record by scoring 30 or more points in five straight games when he hit a jump shot with 2:30 to play in the game. He added a floating jumper with 2:14 remaining to help seal the game for the Raptors.

Suns 112, Pelicans 111 (overtime)

T.J. Warren took a backdoor inbounds pass from P.J. Tucker in the lane and slammed home a dunk to lift Phoenix over winless New Orleans.

The Suns trailed 111-110, but after a timeout, they had time to set up an inbounds play. Warren faked Solomon Hill near the top of the key and then knifed toward the basket, where Tucker hit him with a perfectly timed pass for the winning dunk.

Trail Blazers 105, Mavericks 95

Damian Lillard continued his torrid start and Portland topped short-handed Dallas at American Airlines Center.

Lillard racked up a season-high 42 points on 12-of-18 shooting from the field, including 5 of 6 from 3-point range. He has scored at least 27 points in all six games this season for the best scoring start in franchise history.

Clippers 99, Grizzlies 88

Chris Paul posted a double-double with 27 points and 11 assists as Los Angeles cruised past Memphis at FedExForum.

Paul also had six steals and four rebounds and was 14 of 15 from the foul line. DeAndre Jordan scored six points and grabbed 21 rebounds.

Wizards 95, Hawks 92

Bradley Beal scored 28 points, John Wall had 21 points and 10 rebounds and Washington entered the win column for the first time this season.

Markieff Morris scored 18 points for the Wizards (1-3), who never trailed in the second half but couldn't put away the Hawks until the final seconds. Washington avoided its first 0-4 start since opening the 2012-13 season with 12 straight losses.
