Pacers 110, Bucks 100
Forward Paul George scored 32 points and forward David West had 30 as the Indiana Pacers beat the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Pacers never trailed but also did not have it easy against the league's worst team, who crept within five points early in the final quarter.
Bobcats 92, Grizzlies 89
Guard Kemba Walker had 31 points, eight rebounds and five assists as the Charlotte Bobcats beat the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Bobcats went on a 15-1 run early in the fourth quarter to open a 13-point lead, but then had to come from behind in the final minute after Memphis stormed back with a 16-2 run.
Charlotte withstood two missed three-pointers from Memphis guard Mike Conley in the final five seconds as the Grizzlies had a four-game winning streak halted.
