monDAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

Pacers 95, Grizzlies 79: Paul George scored 23 points and Lance Stephenson had the first triple-double of his career as Indiana (8-0) extended its franchise-best start with a home win over Memphis.

"It was probably our most complete game," coach Frank Vogel said.

Stephenson finished with 13 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 12 assists. The Pacers' Roy Hibbert added five more blocks to his NBA-leading total.

Bulls 96, Cavaliers 81: Derrick Rose had 16 points before leaving in the fourth quarter with a right hamstring injury in Chicago's home victory over Cleveland.

"It's nothing big at all," said Rose, who missed all of last season while recovering from left knee surgery. Rose said he thinks he will be able to play Friday night at Toronto.

Trail Blazers 109, Pistons 103: Damian Lillard bounced back from a miserable shooting night with 25 points, making five 3-pointers, and Portland posted its sixth straight home win over Detroit.
