Keith Firmin brings you The Wrap-Up on all of last night’s NBA games including Dallas’ game-winner and McLemore’s big shot.

Denver @ Philadelphia

Detroit @ Chicago

The Pistons are in the midst of their longest win streak of the season thanks to their fourth straight win, this one over the Bulls, 92-75. Holding Chicago to just nine points in the third quarter was the deciding factor in this eastern conference clash. Brandon Jennings had 33 points to lead all scorers. Luol Deng sat this game out with a sore Achilles.

Golden State @ Memphis

The Warriors have been inconsistent so far this season but showed their Dr Jekyll side against the Grizzlies, dispatching them 108-82. Klay Thomspon led all scorers with 30 points. Curry and Lee chipped in 45 points between them. Mike Miller had 16 points to lead the Grizzlies.

Miami @ Minnesota

Kevin Love missed this one for personal reasons and it was probably for the best as the Miami Heat weren’t playing around. After two straight losses the Heat were determined to get back to winning and they did so with a 103-82 win over the TWolves. LeBron James had 21 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists in the win.

Brooklyn @ Milwaukee

Brook Lopez scored 32 points on 11-of-13 shooting to help the Nets overcome the Bucks, 90-82. O.J. Mayo had 22 points to lead the Bucks.

Indiana @ San Antonio

Paul George’s 28 points led the Pacers to a 111-100 win over the Spurs. He was one of seven Pacers players to score in double digits. The Spurs gave limited minutes to their big three with neither Parker, Ginobili nor Duncan playing more than 27 minutes in defeat. Duncan registered the 24,000 point of his career during the game.

Sacramento @ Utah

Ben McLemore’s three-pointer took the game to OT where the Kings completed the job, beating the Jazz 112-102. DeMarcus Cousins and Isaiah Thomas combined for 54 points in the win, which halted the Kings’ six-game losing skid. Rookie, Trey Burke, had 19 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists in the loss.

Dallas @ Portland

Damian Lillard hit a difficult three to tie the game at 106 before Monta Ellis hit a long, off-balance two to finish with 22 points and win the game for the visiting Mavs, 108-106. Nowitzki finished with a team-high 28 points in their third straight win. The Blazers got 32 points out of Damian Lillard in defeat. Joel Freeland had four rebounds and an assist in 13 minutes.
