Clippers 89, Hawks 76: The Clippers (5-2) excellent bench propelled them to a victory in the matinee game at Staples Center. Eric Bledsoe scored 12 points in a reserve role, while Jamal Crawford added 11 and Matt Barnes chipped in with 10 points for the Clippers who had six players score in double-figures. Blake Griffin finished with 16 points and seven rebounds.

Lakers 103, Kings 90: The Lakers (3-4) topped a shorthanded Kings squad to win their third game of the year. Dwight Howard led the way for the purple and gold, scoring 23 points and grabbing 18 rebounds. Three other Lakers finished with 18 points or more in the nightcap at Staples Center.

Nets 82, Magic 74: The Nets (3-2) dominated the boards and held off the Magic two days after blowing them out by 39 points in Orlando. Forward Kris Humphries finished with 14 points and 21 rebounds and Reggie Evans grabbed seven boards of his own in the Brooklyn win.

Grizzlies 104, Heat 86: Memphis (5-1) surprised the Heat on Sunday, fueled by 14 three-pointers and a stellar performance from backup guard Wayne Ellington, who shot 7-of-11 from behind the arc and finished with a career-high 25 points. The Grizzlies, who have won five consecutive games, trail the San Antonio Spurs by just half a game in the Southwest Division.

Thunder 106, Cavaliers 91: Fueled by guard Russell Westbrook's 27 points, 10 assist and four steals, the Thunder won their fourth consecutive game. Kevin Durant added 26 points and eight rebounds and Serge Ibaka chipped in with 14 points and seven boards for the 5-2 Thunder.
