Boston Herald - - NBA SCOREBOARD -

D’An­gelo Rus­sell scored 29 points, in­clud­ing six in over­time, and the Brook­lyn Nets snapped an eight-game los­ing streak by beat­ing the Toronto Rap­tors, 106-105 in New York.

Brook­lyn picked the most un­likely way to end its skid, snap­ping a 12-game slide against Toronto with its first vic­tory over the Rap­tors since April 3, 2015.

Jar­rett Allen made the goa­head bas­ket for the Nets with a lit­tle more than a minute left, their only bas­ket in over­time not made by Rus­sell. 76ers 117, Pis­tons 111 — Jimmy But­ler scored 38 points and Philadel­phia over­came Joel Em­biid’s ab­sence, ral­ly­ing from a 15point third-quar­ter deficit to beat host Detroit.

The 76ers rested Em­biid, who missed his first game of the sea­son, but Detroit couldn’t take ad­van­tage of the big man’s ab­sence. Pac­ers 112, Magic 90 — Bo­jan Bog­danovic scored 26 points and Cory Joseph added 15 to help vis­it­ing In­di­ana beat Or­lando.

Bulls 114, Thun­der 112 — Lauri Markka­nen scored 24 points and drove for the goa­head layup in the closing sec­onds to lead host Chicago to a vic­tory over Ok­la­homa City and its first win un­der coach Jim Boylen.

The Thun­der’s Rus­sell West­brook had just hit a ty­ing layup when Markka­nen beat Paul Ge­orge and banked in a layup over the out­stretch arm of Steven Adams, mak­ing it 114-112 with 4.9 sec­onds left. Spurs 133, Lak­ers 120 — De­Mar DeRozan fin­ished with 36 points and nine as­sists and host San Antonio had eight play­ers score in dou­ble fig­ures in a come­from-be­hind vic­tory over Los An­ge­les.

Hor­nets 113, Nuggets 107 — Kemba Walker had 21 points, eight as­sists and six re­bounds, Tony Parker added 19 points off the bench and host Char­lotte snapped Den­ver’s se­v­engame win streak. Kings 129, Cava­liers 110 — De’Aaron Fox had 30 points and 12 as­sists, and vis­it­ing Sacra­mento beat Cleve­land.

The Cava­liers agreed to a trade with Mil­wau­kee that puts Matthew Dellave­dova back in Cleve­land along with for­ward John Hen­son and a pair of draft picks in 2021.

The Bucks will ac­quire vet­eran point guard Ge­orge Hill and for­ward Sam Dekker from the Cavs. Griz­zlies 107, Pel­i­cans 103
