Monday's HIGHLIGHTS

Nuggets 110, Clippers 100: J.J. Hickson scored 21 points and Kenneth Faried had 18 points and 16 rebounds as Denver snapped Los Angeles' 11-game win streak. Chris Paul scored 29 points and Blake Griffin 26 for the Clippers.

Thunder 97, Bulls 85: Kevin Durant had 35 points and 12 rebounds, and Oklahoma City bounced back from its most lopsided loss of the season to defeat Chicago. Russell Westbrook added 17 points, nine rebounds and nine assists after sitting out the previous day to rest his surgically repaired knee. The Thunder went on a 13-point run after the Bulls scored eight straight early in the fourth to cut the lead to one and pulled this one out after falling by 23 at home to Dallas on Sunday.

Pacers 99, 76ers 90: Lance Stephenson scored 25 points, Paul George had 24, and Indiana sent Philadelphia to a franchise-record 21st straight loss. Philadelphia eclipsed its previous mark of 20 straight losses during the 1972-73 season, when it finished 9-73. The Sixers tied the Detroit Pistons for the sixth-longest losing streak in NBA history. The Pistons lost 21 straight bridging the 1979-80 and 1980-81 seasons. The Cleveland Cavaliers set the NBA record for consecutive losses with 26, in the 2010-11 season.

Rockets 124, Jazz 86: Terrence Jones scored 30 points, and Houston ended a three-game skid with a rout of Utah. The Rockets cruised despite being without Dwight Howard (ankle strain) for the first time this season.

Nets 108, Suns 95: Deron Williams scored 28 points on 11-for-13 shooting, leading Brooklyn past Phoenix, the Nets' ninth straight win at home. Brooklyn played without Kevin Garnett (back spasms) for the ninth straight game.

Hawks 97, Bobcats 83: Paul Millsap scored 28 points, and Atlanta snapped Charlotte's eight-game home win streak.

Mavericks 94, Celtics 89: Dirk Nowitzki scored 19 points, and Dallas opened a franchise-record eight-game homestand by holding off Boston. The Celtics trailed by double digits twice in the second half before getting within one in the final minute but couldn't avoid an 0-15 finish on the road against the Western Conference.

Cavaliers: Point guard Kyrie Irving will miss at least two weeks because of a strained tendon in his left biceps.
