A packed 11-game slate provided plenty of action, highlights and top-class performances on Halloween night.
If you missed any of the action check in here for the scores, highlights and best performances of the night.
Game of the Night
One of the first games of the slate in Washington D.C takes the cake.
For the second time in six games, the Celtics played out a double-overtime contest and for the second time in six games they came out on the losing side. The Washington Wizards had four players scoring at least 17 with Bradley Beal leading the way.
He scored a game-high 36 points but it was Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's clutch play that sealed the victory.

For the Celtics, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown combined for 61 points but didn't get a lot of support. Boston now slumps to 2-4 while the Wizards are tied for the best record with 5-1.
Highlight of the Night
A couple of defensive plays by guards in two contrasting games - a high-scoring double-overtime game in Washington D.C and a low-scoring contest in Minnesota - are the top highlights from the packed schedule of Saturday's games.
