Nets 106, Rap­tors 105: D’An­gelo Rus­sell scored 29 points, in­clud­ing six in over­time, and host Brook­lyn snapped an eight-game los­ing streak.

Nikola Vuce­vic led Or­lando with 22 points and 10 re­bounds. The Pac­ers took con­trol in the mid­dle of the third and were never chal­lenged the fi­nal 16 min­utes.

Hor­nets 113, Nuggets 107: Den­ver came in the with the best record in the West, but shot 39 per­cent from the field and 23 per­cent from 3-point range in los­ing at Char­lotte.
