(TSX / STATS) -- CLEVELAND -- This is not something the Cleveland Cavaliers want to get used to, but they're making the most of their ability to come back in games.

LeBron James scored 19 of his 39 points in the second half and overtime and the Cavaliers clawed back to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 118-113 on Friday night.

The Cavs, who have won four straight, didn't lead until overtime and trailed by as many as 15. In a win Monday in New York, they trailed by as many as 23 points.


Spurs storm back from 23 down, top OKC

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN ANTONIO -- In a game that shouldn't have gone down to the final minute, San Antonio's 104-101 victory over Oklahoma City on Friday was decided by inches.

The slight edge: a crucial shot and the height of the defender that the Spurs used to make difficult an inbounds pass in the final seconds that denied the Thunder a quality opportunity on their last-gasp possession.


Davis concussed as Nuggets rout Pelicans

(TSX / STATS) -- DENVER -- New Orleans withstood a hot start by Denver, but it couldn't overcome a scorching second half without its star forward.

Jamal Murray scored 31 points, Gary Harris returned from missing two games with a sore right shoulder to score a season-high 22, and the Nuggets capitalized on the loss of Anthony Davis in a 146-114 win over the Pelicans on Friday night.


Grizzlies PG Conley out indefinitely

(TSX / STATS) -- Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley will be sidelined indefinitely due to soreness in his left heel and Achilles, the team announced Friday.

The team listed no timetable for Conley's return, and indicated an update would be provided in approximately two weeks.


Pacers come from 22 down to beat Pistons

(TSX / STATS) -- INDIANAPOLIS -- Midway through the third quarter, the Indiana Pacers were seemingly buried in a 22-point hole to Detroit.

"We didn't give in, games like that it's easy to give in," Pacers guard Darren Collison said. "Everybody kept believing. I thought our bench did a great job of keeping us in the game. It was a good effort by everybody."


Bulls end skid at 5 despite Walker's 47

(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- When Lauri Markkanen saw Kemba Walker split a pair of defenders en route to the basket late in the fourth quarter Friday night, the Chicago Bulls rookie realized he had to make a play.

With nothing standing between Walker and a potential game-winning layup, Markkanen rotated and made his move. And after making a defensive stand that led to a Walker miss on one end of the floor, Markkanen hit a pair of free throws on the other that capped the Bulls' 123-120 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.


Booker's 33 power Suns over Lakers

(TSX / STATS) -- LOS ANGELES -- Devin Booker is becoming a household name in the NBA, and Friday night the third-year shooting guard for the Phoenix Suns got comfortable in a hurry inside Staples Center.

Booker scored 22 of his 33 points in the first half and then helped the Suns hold on down the stretch for a 122-113 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers.


Lowry, DeRozan lead Raptors past Knicks

(TSX / STATS) -- TORONTO -- The New York Knicks were the gang that couldn't shoot straight Friday night.

They could barely shoot at all, actually, making only 33 percent of their attempts from the field in a 107-84 loss to the Toronto Raptors, who shot 56.4 percent.


Heat hold off Wizards after being up 25

(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- John Wall wished his home arena had been a bit warmer. Then perhaps his injured left knee loosened enough to help his side avoid a sluggish start. Instead, the Washington Wizards couldn't overcome the early heat brought by Miami.

Hassan Whiteside had 22 points and 16 rebounds as the Miami Heat fended off a frenzied comeback attempt by the Washington Wizards for a 91-88 win on Friday night.


Kings bounce back to beat Blazers

(TSX / STATS) -- SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- As rough as the season's opening month has been for the Sacramento Kings, it's been a bit harder for their center Willie Cauley-Stein.

Projected to make a leap in his third season, Cauley-Stein instead has been wildly inconsistent during the season's opening month, with his 8.2 scoring average and 5.6 rebounding average through the season's first 14 games earning him a seat on the bench for the first time in the 15th.
