Jerryd Bayless on Saturday night scored 17 points and held LeBron James scoreless over the final 3 minutes, 15 seconds of the second overtime as the Milwaukee Bucks beat Cleveland 108-105, snapping the Cavaliers’ eight-game winning streak.

James scored 37 points for Cleveland, who lost for the first time since dropping a 97-95 decision at Chicago in the season opener on Oct. 27.

Michael Carter-Williams scored 17 points for Milwaukee, while Giannis Antetokounmpo had 16 points and 11 rebounds in 45 minutes before fouling out with 3 minutes, 15 seconds left in the second overtime. Greg Monroe scored 16 points and had 17 rebounds for the Bucks.


In Oakland, California, Stephen Curry scored 21 of his 34 points after halftime and Andre Iguodala hit a clutch three-pointer as the Warriors survived in overtime, beating the Nets.

Iguodala added 18 points for the Warriors, who won their 11th straight to start the season. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 18 rebounds.

Draymond Green recorded a triple-double with 16 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds. Harrison Barnes added 13 points.

Jarrett Jack scored a season-high 28 and Thaddeus Young added 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Nets.

Jack and Young each sank a pair of free throws in the final 30 seconds of regulation to give the Nets a three-point edge.

Iguodala tied it with a three-pointer with 5.9 seconds left and Lopez missed a short jumper at the buzzer.


In Los Angeles, Blake Griffin scored 34 points, including a crucial jumper with 17 seconds left, as the Clippers rallied to beat the Pistons, ending a two-game skid.

Jamal Crawford added a season-high 37 points, making all 10 of his free throws, and DeAndre Jordan had 10 points and 16 rebounds for the Clippers, who were without injured starters Chris Paul and J.J. Redick.

Ersan Ilyasova scored 20 points, Andre Drummond had 18 points and 19 rebounds, and Reggie Jackson added 20 points in Detroit’s third straight loss. The Pistons have dropped nine in a row to the Clippers.

Humphries made a career-high five three-pointers, including one with 4 minutes, 45 seconds remaining as part of an 8-0 Washington run for a 94-90 lead.

John Wall had 15 points and 11 assists for the Wizards.


In Houston, Texas, Raymond Felton scored 23 points and Charlie Villanueva added 19 as the short-handed Mavericks beat the Rockets.

Dallas played without a trio of starters — Dirk Nowitzki, Wesley Matthews and Chandler Parsons — but it did not matter as they took advantage of the slumping Rockets.

Emotions ran high and plenty of hard fouls were shared between the in-state rivals. They met in the first round of the playoffs in April, where Houston won 4-1.

Elevated by Houston’s poor defense and their own hot shooting, the Mavericks scored a season-high 57 first-half points.

James Harden led Houston with 25 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds, and Terrence Jones had 23 points. The Rockets fell to 1-3 this season in games played without center Dwight Howard, who rested on Saturday night.
