Cavaliers beat Mavericks, Spurs extend winning streak and Bulls fall again

The San Antonio Spurs continued their great run of form by holding off the Detroit Pistons 109-99 in the NBA on Tuesday.

Led by Tony Parker’s 31 points and LaMarcus Aldridge’s 22 points and 13 rebounds, the Spurs overcame the in-form Pistons for a ninth consecutive win.

Manu Ginobili contributed 15 points and veteran Spurs team-mate Tim Duncan added 14 points and nine rebounds on the road.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (25 points) and Andre Drummond (17 points, 10 rebounds) starred for the Pistons, who had their three-game winning streak ended.

The Chicago Bulls slumped to a third successive loss, beaten 106-101 at the Milwaukee Bucks.

Chicago had won six in a row before back-to-back defeats to the Atlanta Hawks and Washington Wizards.

And it got worse for the Bulls as the Bucks used an 8-0 run late in the fourth quarter to rally to victory in Milwaukee.

Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 29 points and 10 rebounds in a double-double display for the Bucks, while Jimmy Butler’s 30 points led the Bulls.

The Cleveland Cavaliers made it eight straight wins after edging the Dallas Mavericks 110-107 in overtime.

LeBron James helped the Cavs maintain their unbeaten streak thanks to his 27 points and 10 rebounds.

Elsewhere, Kevin Durant guided the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 101-96 victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Indiana Pacers accounted for the Phoenix Suns 116-97, the Houston Rockets were 107-91 winners over the Memphis Grizzlies, the New York Knicks trumped the Boston Celtics 120-114, while the Los Angeles Lakers claimed a rare win by beating the New Orleans Pelicans 95-91.
