Sports Mole rounds up all of the action from the latest set of games in the NBA.

The Los Angeles Clippers managed impressively without a number of key players by recording a 94-83 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.

Blake Griffin scored 26 points, while Chris Paul added 25 as the Clippers eased past a Philadelphia side missing rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams for the third game in a row.

The Portland Trail Blazers survived a late fightback from the Utah Jazz to earn a 105-94 win at the EnergySolutions Arena.

Jazz reduced the deficit to five in the fourth quarter but Portland, who were led in scoring by LaMarcus Aldridge's 24 points, made the important plays in the closing stages to continue their best start to a season since 1990.

The Charlotte Bobcats edged past the Golden State Warriors 115-11 thanks to a 31-point game from Kemba Walker at the Time Warner Cable Arena.

Stephen Curry recorded 43 points for the Warriors but it was Walker's strong display in the second half that helped the Bobcats to a 10th home win of the season.

The Washington Wizards missed three opportunities to snatch a victory late on in their 75-74 defeat to the Denver Nuggets at the Verizon Center.

Kenneth Faried's dunk with 33 seconds left secured the win for the Nuggets, who managed to survive three Washington possessions in the closing stages.

Jon Leuer scored 16 points and recorded a career-high 12 rebounds for the Memphis Grizzlies in a 94-85 triumph over the Orlando Magic.

Zach Randolph added 19 for a Grizzlies side which had just nine players available for the game at the FedExForum.

The Sacramento Kings cruised to a 112-97 victory over the Dallas Mavricks as new signings Rudy Gay watched on from the stands following his trade from the Toronto Raptors.

DeMarcus Cousins scored 32 points and Derrick Williams added 31 as the Kings earned just their sixth win of the season.
