The Golden State Warriors are two more wins away from the best ever start to an NBA season after they put away the Chicago Bulls 106-94 in one of 11 Friday night games.
Chicago were the last team to beat Golden State at Oracle Arena during the regular season, but that was 26 home games ago in January.
The second-longest winning streak in the league belonged to the San Antonio Spurs, but their run came to an end at six games last night as the New Orleans Pelicans caused an upset at Smoothie King Center.
The Pelicans had lost 11 of their first 12 games, but star-man Anthony Davis returned from injury and posted 20 points and 18 rebounds as the Spurs dropped to 9-3.
Deron Williams had season-highs in points (23), rebounds (six) and assists (eight) as Dallas held on after their 20-point second-half lead was cut as low as five in the closing minutes.
It was the Blazers' first win in eight as Damian Lillard finished with 27 points and made three late three-pointers to seal the victory.
At one point the Knicks led by as many as 16 in the fourth quarter before OKC rallied, but the visitors held on to improve to 7-6. Carmelo Anthony had 25 points for New York, while Russell Westbrook put up 34 in defeat for the Thunder.
The Wolves held a six-point lead at half time, but Detroit dug in after the interval as Andre Drummond (21 points, 11 rebounds) stood out at Target Center.
Twenty-five points was the margin of victory as Philly lost for the 13th consecutive game this season and 23rd overall including the end to last term. They are five more losses away from tying the NBA's worst-ever start.
Emmanuel Mudiay had the highest-scoring night of his young career with 26 points for the Denver Nuggets, but it was not enough for victory as the Phoenix Suns fought back in the second half to win 114-107 at Pepsi Center.
Opposing guard Brandon Knight shone with 38 points, 24 of which were in the third and fourth quarters, and pulled down 11 rebounds as Phoenix moved to 7-5.
Avery Bradley, with 21 points, again flourished off the bench for the home side as they used a 43-point second quarter to put the game out of the Nets' reach.
