Wizards 106, Pistons 99
John Wall scored 29 points and the visiting Washington Wizards became the latest team to rally past Detroit in the fourth quarter, beating the Pistons on Monday night.
Washington trailed 87-78 before starting the final period with a 17-4 run. The Pistons never went back ahead.
Brandon Jennings had 15 points and 14 assists for Detroit, which has lost five of six.
Trevor Ariza scored 15 points for the Wizards, who also beat Detroit 106-82 on Saturday in Washington.
Bradley Beal scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half for Washington.
It was another frustrating loss for Detroit, outscored 28-12 in the fourth quarter. The Pistons have also blown comfortable fourth-quarter leads at home against Portland and Charlotte during the latter part of December.
The Wizards (14-14) are at .500 after 28 games for the first time since finishing the 2007-08 season 43-39, according to STATS.
Washington began the fourth with 11 straight points, finally taking an 89-87 lead on a 3-pointer by Martell Webster.
Bulls 95, Grizzlies 91
Jimmy Butler scored 14 of his 26 points in the third quarter, Carlos Boozer added 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls defeated the host Memphis Grizzlies.
Butler shot 6 for 10 from the field, including 2 of 3 on 3-pointers, and 12 of 14 at the foul line in a team-high 41 minutes. Chicago was 6 for 15 from 3-point range.
D.J. Augustin had 10 points off the bench for the Bulls, including eight in the fourth period as Memphis tried to make a late run.
Mike Conley finished with 26 points, nine assists, six rebounds and six steals to lead the Grizzlies. James Johnson scored 13 points, all in the second half, and grabbed 10 rebounds before fouling out with 4:10 left.
Pelicans 110, Trail Blazers 108
Tyreke Evans hit a pull-up jumper from 17 feet with 1.2 seconds left and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the visiting Portland Trail Blazers.
Evans’ big basket came right after Portland’s Damian Lillard, who has hit several game-winners this season, made a contested 3-pointer to tie the score at 108. New Orleans, which won its fourth in a row at home, never trailed in the second half but never led by more than five in the final 10 minutes.
Jrue Holiday scored 15 of his season-high 31 points in the fourth quarter and tied a season high with 13 assists for the Pelicans. Anthony Davis added 27 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks.
Davis forced LaMarcus Aldridge into a tough shot from the baseline that bounced off the top of the backboard as time ran out.
Jazz 83, Bobcats 80
Trey Burke beat the shot clock on a driving layup with 19 seconds left and scored 21 points to power the host Utah Jazz past the Charlotte Bobcats.
Matched against another 6-foot-1 sparkplug in Kemba Walker, Burke faked a shot, hesitated and drove the right side of the lane, releasing the ball just before the shot clock buzzer to give the Jazz the lead in the closing moments of an often listless contest.
Alec Burks had 14 points, and Derrick Favors and Marvin Williams added 13 apiece to carry the Jazz to their 10th straight win over the Bobcats.
Gerald Henderson had 19 points, and Al Jefferson and Walker both scored 18 for Charlotte.
