Hawks 92, Celtics 91
Paul Millsap had season highs with 34 points and 15 rebounds and Atlanta rallied for a win over Boston on Tuesday afternoon.
Jeff Teague added 16 points for Atlanta, including a pair of free that put Atlanta up 92-91 with 1:30 left in the fourth quarter.
Boston two shots to win after Shelvin Mack missed a layup in the final minute, but could not convert. Jordan Crawford missed with about eight seconds remaining and Boston ended up with the rebound and called time out. Crawford tried again at the buzzer but his shot bounced off the backboard and the Hawks won a game they had trailed by as much as 18 in the first half.
Kyle Korver scored 14 for Atlanta and extended his NBA record streak of games with a 3-pointer to 101.
Kelly Olynyk scored a career-high 21 points and Kris Humphries had 18 points and 10 rebounds as Boston's reserves scored 56 - more than half of the team's total. None of Boston's starters scored in double figures.
Brandon Bass was closest with nine points and Jared Sullinger pulled down 10 rebounds.
The lead went back-and-forth down the stretch until Atlanta clinched it in the final minutes. After Millsap put the Hawks up 90-89, Crawford answered with a long jumper that beat the shot clock and put Boston back up 91-90 with 1:36 left. It was the last field goal of the game.
Teague drew a foul with 1:30 left and made both shots and the Hawks held on for the win.
Spurs 113, Nets 92
Tony Parker had 18 points to lead six players in double figures and San Antonio rolled past listless Brooklyn.
Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan had 15 points each and Tiago Splitter and Patty Mills each had 12.
Miles Plumlee and Shaun Livingston had 15 points each to lead Brooklyn. Kevin Garnett was held to two points, failing to make a field for only the second time in his 19-year career and the first time since 1996.
The Nets (10-30) began the season with the same hope as a New Year's Eve celebration after a blockbuster trade brought former NBA champions Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the team. That promise ended quickly and the lackluster loss to the Spurs was a microcosm of their season so far.
Kings 110, Rockets 106
Former UConn star Rudy Gay had 25 points and DeMarcus Cousins took over late in the fourth quarter to lift Sacramento to a victory over Houston.
The Kings trailed by three points before Cousins scored four quick points to make it 105-104. He then stole the ball from James Harden and passed to Ben McLemore for an easy layup.
On the next play, Cousin took a charge from Harden to give the Kings the ball back.
Warriors 94, Magic 81
David Lee had 22 points and Klay Thompson added 15 in Golden State's victory over Orlando.
Kent Bazemore scored 12 points, and Marreese Speights had 10 to help the Warriors win their sixth straight game. Stephen Curry had nine points, eight assists and five rebounds, but he and the rest of the Warriors' starters sat out the entire fourth quarter.
Arron Afflalo led Orlando with 15 points. Jameer Nelson had 11 points and six assists, and Glen Davis added 10 points.
The Warriors used a 16-2 run in the middle of the first quarter to take a 22-10 lead and never let the advantage get under 10 the rest of the game.
Pacers 91, Cavaliers 76
Paul George scored 21 points, Roy Hibbert added 19 and Indiana used a dominant fourth quarter to blow out Cleveland.
The Pacers (25-5) have won eight in a row over Cleveland, their longest active streak against any opponent. They limited the Cavs to 3-of-16 shooting and forced seven turnovers in the final period to turn a close game into yet another victory.
