Jordan Paul scored a career-high 43 points and finally led the champions to their first win in a game where Steph Curry is not playing.

The Warriors, who lost the previous five games without the big star, received both 17 points from Klay Thompson and a great contribution from Draymond Green who returned to the top five and provided 17 points and 9 rebounds in 37 minutes.

It was only the third away win for Golden State, which struggled outside Ulm with Steph as well.

Pascal Siakam (27), Fred VanVelt (22) and Scotty Barnes (17) did not prevent a fifth loss in a row from Toronto.

Detroit Pistons (24:8) - Brooklyn Nets (12:19) 124:121

Kevin Durant exploded for 26 of his game-high 43 points in the third quarter, Kyrie Irving added 38 and Brooklyn rallied from a 17-point halftime deficit to win its seventh straight.

KD shot 8-for-10 from the field, including 3-for-3 from outside the arc and carried the Nets to a particularly hard-fought win.

Detroit still got a chance to force overtime, but Nick Claxton blocked Bojan Bogdanovic's 3-pointer with 2 seconds left.

The Croatian led the losers with 26, Jayden Ivey added 19 but the Nets came out on top at the end of a big thriller.

Denver Nuggets (11:18) - Charlotte Hornets (23:7) 115:119

Last season's MVP came to work and delivered a near historic performance.

Nikola Jokic recorded a monstrous triple double of 40 points, 10 assists and no less than 27 rebounds and carried the Nuggets on his back, who had a hard time against the weak Charlotte who almost made a comeback in the last quarter.

Jokic is the first to record a triple double of at least 35-25-10 since Wilt Chamberlain did it sometime in 1968.

The visitors almost forced overtime, but Jokic scored from the line and Hayward lost on the other end with 5 seconds left.

Caldwell Pope added 20 to the winners while Lamelo Ball starred with 31 points, but even Gordon Hayward's double-double (15 and 10 rebounds) was almost enough.

Indiana Pacers (16:15) - New York Knicks (13:17) 106:109

Jaylen Brunson scored 30 points, Julius Randle made six consecutive free throws in the final minutes and the Knicks recorded their seventh straight victory - the longest streak currently in the league.

Randle finished with 25 points and 14 rebounds for the improving Knicks, RJ Barrett added 24 and suddenly the eternal "loser" is already sixth in the East and can fantasize about the playoffs.

Buddy the Kid scored 23 on the other hand, but recorded a critical turnover in the last seconds.

Aaron Naismith added 23 of his own and 10 rebounds and Tyler Halliburton added 15 and 10 assists.

26 points only in the third quarter.

Minnesota Timberwolves (15:15) - Chicago Bulls (18:11) 126:150

Even the absence of Karl Anthony Towns and Rudy Gober did not prevent Minnesota from breaking the club's points record and the victim was Chicago, the most disappointing team so far this season.

Anthony Edwards recorded a season high of 37 points and also 11 assists.

DeAngelo Russell returned to the top five and also set a season high of 28 points in a game where the host shot 65.5 percent from the field and walked against a very weak defense of the Bulls, who received 29 from DeRozan, 23 from Nikola Vucevic and 22 from Zach Lavin, but with Such a defense is no wonder the team already has 18 losses this season despite a bright and promising squad.

6 of 7 from beyond the arc.

Boston Celtics (9:22) - Orlando Magic (20:11) 95:92

Magic's second victory in Boston in two days and the Celtics may lose the first place in the Eastern Conference at least for now, after their fourth loss in five games.

Paolo Bancro was Orlando's man with 31 points including 6/7 from beyond the arc and taking charge in money time.

Franz Wagner added 12 and Bol Bol finished with 11 and 8 rebounds.

The Celtics were missing Jayson Tatum who was absent due to personal reasons.

Losing Grant Williams with 7.1 seconds on the clock and the result 92:93 for the Magic, closed the story.

Jaylen Brown led with 24 points and 14 rebounds, Marcus Smart added 15 and Williams scored 14 (and also missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer).
