Sunday, Jan. 31 – NBA scores, updates, news, stats, highlights and top fantasy performers

The first full month of the NBA season came to a close with a six-game schedule and plenty of action to follow.

Check below for final scores, stats and highlights from each contest as well as the best fantasy performers from the day.

LA Clippers 129, New York Knicks 115

The LA Clippers were red-hot from beyond the arc, shooting 17-for-38 (44.7%) from beyond the arc in a 14-point victory. Despite hitting only one triple, Kawhi Leonard led the way with an efficient game-high 28 points, shooting 8-for-15 from the field and 11-for-11 from the charity stripe in the win.

He added a pretty impressive dunk, too.

Denver Nuggets 128, Utah Jazz 117

Behind a career-high-tying 47 points from Nikola Jokic (33 in the first half), the Denver Nuggets put an end to the Utah Jazz win streak at 11 games. Jokic, who added 12 rebounds, has now recorded 20 consecutive double-doubles to open the 2020-21 season.

Philadelphia 76ers 119, Indiana Pacers 110

Without Joel Embiid, the 76ers look set to lose this one - trailing 95-82 after three quarters. But the squad had other ideas.

Philadelphia outscored Indiana 37-15 in the final period with Tobias Harris scoring 10, Furkan Korkmaz chipping in with 11. This is the team's first win this season when Embiid doesn't suit up.

Toronto Raptors 115, Orlando Magic 102

The Raptors jumped to an early lead and never looked back. They snapped a 3-game skid led by double-doubles by Pascal Siakam (30 points, 10 rebounds) and Kyle Lowry (12 points, 15 assists).

Washington Wizards 149, Brooklyn Nets 146

A wild ending to the Nets-Wizards game in D.C.

Minnesota Timberwolves 109, Cleveland Cavaliers 104

Anthony Edwards had one of the best games of his rookie year, scoring a team-high 23 on 9-of-15 shooting from the field to go along with five rebounds and four assists.

The Timberwolves snap their three-game skid with this victory while the Cavaliers lose their fourth in the last five. They were led by Andre Drummondd's 25-point, 22-rebound double-double.
