Toronto Raptors 116, Charlotte Hornets 113

Kyle Lowry's midrange jumper puts the Raptors up for good as they hold on to beat the Hornets.

Detroit Pistons 120, Miami Heat 100

Jerami Grant has the Most Improved Player of the Year award in his sights. Another impressive showing from the Pistons biggest offseason acquisition, going for 24 points, nine boards, six assists, four blocks and two steals in the win.

Memphis Grizzlies 106, Philadelphia 76ers 104

Ja Morant missed eight consecutive games with an ankle sprain but led the Grizzlies to victory in his first game back, going for 17 points and six assists.

Portland Trail Blazers 112, Atlanta Hawks 106

The Blazers were without Jusuf Nurkic and then they lost CJ McCollum in the first half but they persevered.

Six Blazers scored in double figures led by Damian Lillard's 36 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists. He came up huge late in the game - sinking clutch free-throws and taking a charge.

Trae Young was the Hawks' top contributor with 25 points, 11 assists, and seven rebounds but he couldn't stop the Hawks from dropping their seventh game in the last nine after starting the season 3-0.
