NBA roundup: San Antonio Spurs, Golden State Warriors, Chicago Bulls win

Sports Mole rounds up all the action from Wednesday's games in the NBA.

The San Antonio Spurs held off a strong late charge from the Atlanta Hawks to give the NBA champions their second win of the season.

The Spurs appeared to be on their way to an easy win when they opened up a 17-point lead midway through the second quarter, but DeMarre Carroll and Paul Millsap brought the visitors back into contention.

However, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker ensured that San Antonio remained ahead, with Duncan making a couple of free throws late on.

The Utah Jazz made a game-winning jump shot in the final moments of their game against the Cleveland Cavaliers for their second victory of the campaign.

Gordon Hayward managed to shake off LeBron James in the last couple of seconds to make a jump shot on the buzzer, leaving the Cavs with just one win from the opening four games.

The Chicago Bulls needed a strong fourth-quarter performance to clinch a win over the Milwaukee Bucks, giving them their fourth victory of the season.

The visitors were just a point ahead with a little over two minutes on the clock, but Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler both made shots late on to take the game away from the Bucks.

The Golden State Warriors eased to a win over the Los Angeles Clippers to extend their unbeaten start to the season.

Stephen Curry made a quick start of the hosts, helping them take a 25-point lead midway through the second quarter, allowing the Warriors to rest their starters towards the end of the game

The Charlotte Hornets ended a four-year wait for a win over the Miami Heat, with a strong third-quarter performance leading them past the side that knocked them out of the playoffs last season.

The home side had trailed early in the second half, but a string of free throws from Kemba Walker put them ahead, starting a 21-7 run for Charlotte that secured the victory.

The Washington Wizards made it four wins in a row with an overtime victory over the Indiana Pacers, who are now on a four-game losing streak.

The Pacers had come from behind in the fourth quarter to force the extra spell, but Roy Hibbert missed a late three-point attempt that would have given them the win after John Wall had put the Wizards ahead.

Despite a strong start, the Boston Celtics suffered a narrow defeat to the Toronto Raptors to leave them with a 1-3 record so far this season.

The hosts had a 12-point lead at the end of the first quarter, but Kyle Lowry soon started to dominate for the Canadian side, finishing with 35 points to lead the comeback.

The New York Knicks fell short in their attempt at a late comeback, allowing the Detroit Pistons to hold on for their first win of the season.

The Knicks were 16 points down heading into the fourth quarter after a strong shooting performance by Greg Monroe, but Tim Hardaway Jr and Carmelo Anthony cut the gap late on, but the visitors ran out of time to complete their fightback.

The Orlando Magic clinched their first win of the season as Tobias Harris added a last-gasp jump shot to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers.

The sides had been close throughout the tie, and it looked like they would need overtime when Henry Sims levelled the scores with 4.6 seconds on the clock, but Harris raced down the other end to add a late basket and seal the win.

The Memphis Grizzlies maintained their unbeaten start of the season, controlling the second half of their game against the Phoenix Suns.

The Grizzlies forced 10 turnovers in the third quarter to open up a lead over their Suns, while Mike Conley finished with 24 points.

The Sacramento Kings cruised to a fourth straight win, crushing the Denver Nuggets at the Sleep Train Arena.

The Nuggets never looked like overturning the 21-point deficit that the Suns inflicted by the end of the first quarter, while DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay combined for 59 points.

The Minnesota Timberwolves needed a strong finish to beat the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center, having trailed heading into the final minute.

Nikola Pekovic drew the sides level with 48 seconds remaining, making a three-pointer, while Thaddues Young and Kevin Martin also added late baskets in a nine-point run in the final moments for Minnesota.
