Wizards 16, Spurs 106

Markieff Morris shot 7-of-7 from the floor for 15 points, Otto Porter Jr. added 14 and host Washington beat San Antonio to snap a three-game losing streak in the middle of a tight Eastern Conference playoff race. San Antonio lost for just the second time in eight games but may have been dealt a more serious blow with a left knee injury to star LaMarcus Aldridge, who was the game’s leading scorer with 13 points before he limped off late in the second quarter.

Rockets 118, Bulls 86

Eric Gordon scored 31 points and tied a career high with eight 3-pointers on a night James Harden sat out to rest, and host Houston got their 10th straight win with a rout of Chicago. Trevor Ariza added 21 points and Chris Paul had 13 points and 10 assists in his return after missing the last three games with a sore hamstring.

The NBA-leading Rockets became the first team since San Antonio in the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season to have three winning streaks of at least 10 games in a season.

Raptors 114, Nuggets 110

DeMar DeRozan, Jonas Valanciunas, and Fred VanVleet each scored 15 points and host Toronto beat Denver.

Jakob Poeltl scored all of his 12 points in the fourth quarter, including eight straight for Toronto at one stretch.

Serge Ibaka had 13 points, Pascal Siakam 12 and Kyle Lowry 11 as the Raptors improved to 31-7 at home.

Toronto, which lost to the Clippers on Sunday, avoided what would have been its fifth two-game losing streak.

Trail Blazers 107, Pelicans 103

Damian Lillard scored 20 of his 41 points in the fourth quarter, and Portland beat host New Orleans .

Lillard hit his first six shots of the fourth quarter, including two 3-pointers, to push Portland into its first lead since early in the first quarter. He made two free throws with 1.3 seconds left to seal the victory.

Anthony Davis had 36 points, 14 rebounds and six blocks for the Pelicans.
