Deron Williams dropped 57 points in the Nets' win over the Bobcats. In other action, the Nuggets handed the Spurs a rare home loss, and the Bulls beat the Sixers.

Deron Williams scored a team record 57 points as the New Jersey Nets waltzed into Charlotte and beat the juggernaut Bobcats 104-101 on Sunday. Williams was 16-for-29 from the floor, 4-for-11 on three-pointers and 21-for-21 from the line. He also managed seven assists, meaning that he figured in at least 68 percent of New Jersey's points.

In other action:

Raptors 83, Warriors 75: Leandro Barbosa was the difference here, as DeMar DeRozan and Monta Ellis played to a standstill and Toronto's Johnsons -- Amir and James -- were able to balance David Lee's production. Barbosa, who had 18, was the only bench player for either squad to hit double-digits.

Bulls 96, Sixers 91: Derrick Rose is a winner! He had 35 points and iced the game with a dagger from the perimeter late. Joakim Noah corralled 18 rebounds for Chicago, and Philadelphia went with its usual balanced attack. Andre Iguodala airballed a late three to seal the game.

Suns 96, Kings 88: Sacramento scored tons of easy buckets early in the game, but the well dried up and the Kings' inability to shoot shone through. The Kings shot just 15-for-45 after halftime, and 0-for-8 from long-range. Steve Nash led Phoenix with an efficient 19 points.

Nuggets 99, Spurs 94: San Antonio came out of the gate slowly and was unable get in front all game long as Denver gave the Spurs a rare home loss. Manu Ginobili returned to play 24 minutes off the bench, but the game turned into a Ty Lawson-Tony Parker showdown. Lawson had 22 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds. Parker had 25 points and seven assists.
