The Chicago Bulls extended their unbeaten run to five wins with victory over the Washington Wizards in the NBA.

The Bulls were 12 points ahead by the end of the first quarter and never looked like letting the hosts back into the tie as Joakim Noah and DJ Augustin combined for 46.

Kevin Garnett returned from a 19-game absence to help the Brooklyn Nets hold on for a win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

The power forward, who missed over five weeks with back spasms, added 10 points to move up to 14th on the NBA's all-time top scorers list.

The Sixers cut the Nets' lead from 21 to two during the second half, but Mirza Teletovic helped clinch the win late on for the visitors.

The Charlotte Bobcats needed overtime to secure a narrow win over the Cleveland Cavaliers and confirm their place in the playoffs.

The Bobcats needed a strong finish to regulation to keep themselves in the game after Kyrie Irving added a career-high 44 for the Cavaliers, but Al Jefferson stepped up, adding seven in overtime to clinch the win.

The Toronto Raptors overturned a half-time deficit to take a win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Canadian side were nine points down at the break, but DeMar DeRozan added 15 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to help them edge ahead late on, leaving Toronto with six victories in their last seven games.

The Orlando Magic came from behind in the fourth quarter to secure a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The home side were 13 points down during the second half, but Arron Afflalo and Kyle O'Quinn led the comeback to end the Magic's three-game losing streak.

A dominant finish from the Detroit Pistons lifted them to success over the Boston Celtics for their first victory in three games.

The Celtics were 10 points up at the start of the fourth quarter, but Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons on a 30-16 run in the final 12 minutes to overturn the deficit.
