The Golden State Warriors held the Bulls to 12 points in the third quarter after Chicago had a 66-point first half, enabling the defending champs to rally for a 119-112 victory Wednesday night in Chicago.

The win was the Warriors' fourth straight to begin a five-game trip and extended Golden State's road winning streak to 14 games, equaling the third longest in NBA history.

The Bulls used a 17-0 run bridging the first and second quarters to help build a 66-63 halftime advantage. The Warriors countered with a 19-0 flurry of their own in the third quarter to take a lead they never relinquished.

Klay Thompson had 38 points and Stephen Curry 30 for the Warriors, whose 21-3 road record is better than their 16-6 home mark. Nikola Mirotic had a team-high 24 points for the Bulls, who had won their previous three games.

Hornets 133, Wizards 109

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 21 points as Charlotte welcomed the return of coach Steve Clifford to the bench with some record offense in a win over visiting Washington. Clifford, 56, missed 21 games across five weeks because of severe headaches associated with sleep deprivation.

The Hornets made their first 10 shots from the field, the best stretch to start a game for the franchise in 15 years. That led to a franchise-record 77 first-half points.

Kemba Walker's 19 points and Dwight Howard's 18 points and 15 rebounds also gave the Hornets a lift. Bradley Beal poured in 26 points and reserve Mike Scott racked up 18 points for the Wizards.

Hawks 94, Pelicans 93

Kent Bazemore scored 20 points, including a go-ahead jumper with two seconds left, to lift Atlanta past visiting New Orleans.

The Hawks erased a 15-point halftime deficit with a big third quarter. Ersan Ilyasova (15 points) connected on key 3-pointer in the final minutes of the fourth quarter to help Atlanta win consecutive games for the first time this season.

New Orleans' DeMarcus Cousins scored 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, but he missed a shot at the buzzer as the Pelicans had their three-game winning streak snapped. Anthony Davis, who was coming off back-to-back 45-plus-point performances, finished with only eight points and seven rebounds. Jrue Holiday scored 22 points to lead the Pelicans.

Spurs 100, Nets 95

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 23 of his 34 points in the second half as San Antonio beat Brooklyn in New York.

Patty Mills added 25 points on a night the Spurs were without Kawhi Leonard (quadriceps) and Manu Ginobili (right thigh contusion). Leonard is out indefinitely, while Ginobili is day-to-day.

Allen Crabbe led the Nets with 20 points while Joe Harris scored 18 points, but Brooklyn lost its fifth straight home game and fell for the sixth time in seven games.

Raptors 96, Pistons 91

CJ Miles scored 21 points off the bench, his biggest output since scoring 22 on opening night, and Toronto held on for a home win over Detroit.

Kyle Lowry had 18 points, nine rebounds and five assists, and Jonas Valanciunas posted 17 points and 16 rebounds for Toronto. DeMar DeRozan also scored 17 points as the Raptors overcame 21 turnovers.

Andre Drummond paced the Pistons, who have lost three straight, with 25 points and 17 rebounds. Avery Bradley tossed in 19 points for Detroit.

Grizzlies 105, Knicks 99

Memphis ran off to an 18-point, third-quarter advantage, then held on through a wild finish to defeat visiting New York.

With the Grizzlies up by three, New York's Kristaps Porzingis (21 points) was called for a loose-ball foul going for the rebound with 25 seconds remaining.

The Knicks then appeared to force a turnover with 17 seconds left, but the referees ruled a jump ball and slapped New York's Courtney Lee with a technical foul for arguing. Evans (23 points) made the free throw for a four-point lead, and he added another pair three seconds later after winning the jump ball.

Heat 106, Bucks 101

Hassan Whiteside notched his 14th double-double of the season, finishing with 27 points and 13 rebounds in Miami's win at Milwaukee.

Whiteside hit 10 of 12 shots from the floor and connected on 7 of 9 attempts from the foul line while blocking six shots as the Heat won for the ninth time in 11 games. Miami also got 15 points apiece from Goran Dragic and Kelly Olynyk.

Khris Middleton led Milwaukee with 25 points. Giannis Antetokounmpo added 22 for the Bucks.

Thunder 114, Lakers 90

Carmelo Anthony scored 27 points, and Steven Adams chipped in 21 points and 10 rebounds as Oklahoma City toppled visiting Los Angeles.

Russell Westbrook added 19 points, six boards and seven assists for the Thunder, and Paul George tallied 13 points. Oklahoma City has won three consecutive games following a three-game skid.

The Lakers fell to 0-8 without rookie guard Lonzo Ball, who missed a second consecutive game with a knee injury. Los Angeles' Julius Randle scored 16 points, all in the first half, while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope posted 10 points in the first quarter before leaving in the second with an ankle injury.

Clippers 109, Nuggets 104

Willie Cauley-Stein tied his season high of 26 points and also collected 10 rebounds for the Kings, who lost their sixth consecutive game and fell for the ninth time in 10 games. Sacramento's Bogdan Bodganovic scored 25 points, making 9 of 11 shots, including all six of his 3-point attempts.
