NBA scores: Brooklyn holds on to beat Cleveland

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The Nets haven't been playing pretty basketball lately, but they somehow have won two straight since the firing of Avery Johnson.

The Brooklyn Nets took care of business, barely, on Saturday night, beating the woeful Cleveland Cavaliers 103-100 in the Barclays Center.

Brooklyn was led by its big man, Brook Lopez, who came up large with a double-double of 35 points and 11 rebounds.

Lopez's night was just another to hold off Cleveland, who was led by C.J. MIles' 33 points off the bench.

Detroit Pistons 96, Milwaukee Bucks 94: The Pistons won a tough game in Auburn Hills due in large part to Tayshaun Prince's 20 points.

It was a hard loss to take for Milwaukee, which fell to 16-13 on the season. Monta Ellis led all scorers with a game-high 30 points.

San Antonio Spurs 111, Dallas Mavericks 86: The Spurs just keep winning as usual, while the Mavericks have fallen on very hard times, losers of six consecutive contests.

San Antonio is 24-8, with Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker leading the way once again. On Sunday, the trio combined for 59 points.
