NBA results | Monday
Mavericks 107, Thunder 97
OKLAHOMA CITY — Luka Doncic had 29 points and 11 rebounds, and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Oklahoma City Thunder on a night that included several tributes to Kobe Bryant.
Thunder guard Chris Paul sat out for personal reasons a night after Bryant, one of the NBA’s all-time greats, was killed in a helicopter crash in Southern California.
Cavaliers 115, Pistons 100
DETROIT — Kevin Love scored all 20 of his points in the first half and Cleveland beat Detroit to snap a seven-game losing streak.
Love, an Olympic teammate of Kobe Bryant’s who played college basketball in Los Angeles at UCLA, made six 3-pointers before halftime. It was the first game for either team since Bryant’s death Sunday in a helicopter crash.
Heat 113, Magic 92
MIAMI — Bam Adebayo got his third triple-double of the season in his last opportunity to impress Eastern Conference All-Star voters, Duncan Robinson scored 21 points and Miami eased past Orlando.
Adebayo finished with 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. He’s a candidate to be a reserve selection for the All-Star Game; coaches pick those teams, and their ballots are due at the NBA office on Tuesday for an announcement on Thursday.
Kings 133, Timberwolves 129, OT
MINNEAPOLIS — Buddy Hield scored a career-high 42 points to help Sacramento rally from a 27-point deficit for an overtime victory against skidding Minnesota.
De’Aaron Fox scored 22 for the Kings, putting back the rebound of his intentionally missed free throw as part of a 33-11 run over the final 5:42 of regulation.
Bulls 110, Spurs 109
CHICAGO — Zach LaVine scored 14 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, including two clutch foul shots with 2.1 seconds left, and Chicago edged San Antonio.
LaVine won an entertaining duel with DeMar DeRozan after the Bulls trailed by 10 heading into the final period. DeRozan tied it at 108 on a tough fadeaway jumper with 8.6 seconds left, but LaVine responded with two free throws after he was fouled by Jakob Poetl on a drive to the basket.
Rockets 126, Jazz 117
SALT LAKE CITY — Eric Gordon scored a career-high 50 points to lead the short-handed Houston Rockets to a victory over the Utah Jazz despite playing without James Harden and Russell Westbrook.
Danuel House Jr. added 21 points and 11 rebounds, and Austin Rivers also had 21 points as Houston handed the Jazz their first home loss since Dec. 9.
