NBA scores: Grizzlies' winning streak snapped, Clippers' continues

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

One long winning streak got snapped on Monday night, while another continued.

Nuggets 97, Grizzlies 92

Curse of the SB Nation power rankings? Clearly, that explains this result. The Grizzlies had a 92-88 lead with two minutes left and looked well on their way to another victory. Then, Danilo Gallinari, finally playing like his usual self after a rough start to the year, hit three free throws, and JaVale McGee put Denver up for good with a putback layup. After a miss, Gallinari iced the game with a cold-blooded three, and suddenly, the Nuggets have new life again after a three-game losing streak.

Clippers 92, Spurs 87

Meanwhile, the West's other surging team got their usual awesome bench contributions and Chris Paul crunch-time calmness to put away an always-dangerous Spurs team at home. Chris Paul had 19 points, including the game-sealing bucket with 24 seconds remaining, and four other players scored in double figures to aid the league's hottest team. The Spurs, meanwhile, now have no healthy small forwards after Stephen Jackson's injury.

Warriors 105, Mavericks 101

Will someone please guard Stephen Curry? The Warriors' high-scoring guard had 20 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, and the Warriors overcame O.J. Mayo's hot shooting and Klay Thompson's abysmal defense to beat the Mavericks on the road in overtime.

Bobcats 102, Bucks 98

Break up the Bobcats! Seriously, they're now 5-4 after a tough win over a very good (at least early on) Bucks squad at home. Ramon Sessions burned his former team with 23 points, and the Bobcats overcame a big night from Monta Ellis to hold on for the win. They're now 5-4 on the season. Seriously!

Jazz 102, Rockets 91

James Harden's line: six points, 1-6 shooting in 17 minutes. I know he was sick before the game, but wow. On the flip side, the Jazz continue to be a completely different team at Energy Solutions Arena than anywhere else.

Pacers 96, Wizards 89

David West doesn't want tortured fanbases to have nice things. Whenever the Wizards rallied, there was West to hit critical shots to allow the Pacers to get a much-needed win. It was also nice that Roy Hibbert actually had a good game for the first time this season. Randy Wittman, meanwhile, may have had his Waterloo moment in the post-game press conference.

Hawks 81, Magic 72

Let us not speak of this game again.
