Tyson Chandler led the way for his team win 20 points and 13 rebounds, while on the other side Michael Carter-Williams logged a triple-double with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 16 assists.

Cavaliers-Pacers: The Cavs have had some bumps along the road this season, but looked pretty good last night at home against the visiting Pacers. Kevin Love scored a season-high 28, with 16 of those coming in the first quarter alone. He nailed his first five shots in the eventual 109-97 win.
In supporting roles. Kyrie Irving logged 24 points with 10 rebounds and five assists, while LeBron James had 19 points. They’re now 8-7 on the year.
Clippers-Jazz: The Clippers went 6-1 on their lengthy road trip, most recently downing the Jazz 112-96 in Salt Lake City. Blake Griffin posted 28 points in that one, while Chris Paul managed 17 points and 10 assists for another double-double.
Jamal Crawford put up 22 points while DeAndre Jordan snagged 12 boards, sending the Clippers to 11-5 and finishing off their road trip with a bang.
Rockets-Bucks: The Bucks came into last night’s game with a three-game win streak, but the Rockets had other ideas. James Harden led the way for his club once again with a game-high 34 points in the 117-103 win, with 19 of those points coming in the third quarter alone.
This was Houston’s sixth straight game without big man Dwight Howard, who was out again with a knee strain. He was one of three starters sitting for the Rockets.
