Warriors 106, Clippers 99
Jarrett Jack had 18 points and 10 assists, Stephen Curry made four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and host Golden State rallied from seven points down in the final 11 minutes to beat Los Angeles on Monday.
Curry finished with 28 points, Klay Thompson added 18 and David Lee had 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors, who have beaten the Pacific Division-leading Clippers three out of the four games between the two teams this season.
There were five lead changes in the fourth quarter, but Los Angeles managed only two baskets over the final 3:40 while Golden State closed on a 14-4 run.
Blake Griffin had 26 points and 13 rebounds for the Clippers. Jamal Crawford added 24 points off the bench.
Pacers 82, Grizzlies 81
George Hill scored 13 points, including a clinching free throw with 1.4 seconds remaining to give Indiana a victory over host Memphis in the annual Martin Luther King Day game.
On the ensuing inbounds, Rudy Gay’s 24-footer over Paul George banked in, but it came after the buzzer — a ruling confirmed by officials after a review — giving the Pacers their second consecutive win and ninth in the last 11.
David West scored 14 points for the Central Division-leading Pacers, while George finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. Roy Hibbert scored 10 for Indiana.
Wayne Ellington led the Grizzlies with 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting, including connecting on all three shots from outside the arc.
Hornets 114, Kings 105
Ryan Anderson scored 27 points and host New Orleans survived a second half without Anthony Davis in a victory over Sacramento.
Anderson scored 17 points in the second quarter, making 5-of-8 3-point attempts, when the Hornets raced to a 64-39 halftime lead.
Greivis Vasquez added 19 points and Eric Gordon had 16 points for the Hornets, who have won three of four.
Davis sat out the second half with a left ankle sprain. It is the same ankle he injured earlier in the year that sidelined him for 11 games.
Hawks 104, Timberwolves 96
Al Horford scored a season-high 28 points, Jannero Pargo had 16 and host Atlanta snapped a two-game slide with a victory over Minnesota.
Derrick Williams finished with 17 points and Jose Barea had 14 for Minnesota, which lost for the sixth time in seven games after blowing an 18-point lead in the second quarter.
Injuries at guard forced the Hawks to sign Pargo to a 10-day contract earlier Monday, and he did not disappoint.
The 33-year-old, nine-year NBA journeyman hit a 3-pointer from the left corner with 5:26 remaining to give the Hawks their first lead since the 9:40 mark of the first quarter.
Rockets 100, Bobcats 94
James Harden scored 29 points and hit all 10 of his free throws in the fourth quarter as Houston rallied to snap a seven-game losing streak, beating host Charlotte.
Kemba Walker scored a career-high 35 points for the Bobcats, who set a franchise record with their 15th consecutive loss at home. The longest home skid in NBA history is 19 in a row by Dallas during the 1993-94 season.
Harden made just 5-of-20 shots, but went 19-of-21 on free throws. He was perfect from the line when the Rockets overcame a seven-point deficit in the final period.
Nets 88, Knicks 85
Joe Johnson made the go-ahead jumper with 22 seconds left and scored 25 points, leading the Brooklyn Nets to a win over the New York Knicks and a split of the four-game series between the city rivals.
Deron Williams added 14 points and 12 assists for the Nets, who cut the Knicks’ Atlantic Division lead to one game. Brook Lopez had 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Kris Humphries came off the bench for 11 points and 13 boards.
Carmelo Anthony had 29 points and seven assists for the Knicks, but missed all six shots in the fourth quarter and finished 11-of-29 for the game.
Spurs 90, 76ers 85
Tim Duncan had 24 points and 17 rebounds and Tony Parker scored 20 points to lead San Antonio to their fifth consecutive win, this time over host Philadelphia.
The Spurs blew a 17-point lead in the first half before rallying late in the fourth to win again without guard Manu Ginobili. Ginobili is still out with a strained left hamstring.
Evan Turner led the Sixers with 18 points and 12 rebounds. The Sixers lost for the seventh time in nine games. Andrew Bynum, out all season with injured knees, said before the game he remained on target to return around the All-Star break.
Bulls 95, Lakers 83
Kirk Hinrich scored 22 points, Marco Belinelli added 15 points, and host Chicago pulled away down the stretch to beat the struggling Los Angeles Lakers.
Belinelli came up big in the closing minutes, scoring eight points during an 18-4 run that broke a 75-75 tie and sent the Lakers to their ninth loss in 11 games.
He started it by hitting two free throws after getting fouled by Dwight Howard with 6:54 left in the game and wrapped two 3-pointers around a layup by Los Angeles’ Earl Clark, making it 89-79 with 2:27 remaining.
