NBA roundup: Spurs upset Lakers, Lillard stars in Blazers win

The Spurs improved to four wins and four losses for the season.

The San Antonio Spurs followed up their narrow win over the Clippers on Tuesday by upsetting the Lakers 118-109 in Los Angeles.

The Spurs flew out of the gate to open up a 34-26 first-quarter lead before extending their margin to nine at half-time.

The Lakers trimmed the deficit to two in the third but managed to hold on for the victory thanks to a 28-point effort from LaMarcus Aldridge.

LeBron James top-scored for the Lakers with 27 while Anthony Davis finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds.

A double-double from Andre Drummond propelled the Cleveland Cavaliers past the Memphis Grizzlies in a 94-90 win.

Drummond posted 22 points and 15 rebounds, with Cleveland relying on a late-scoring surge to get the job done.

Jonas Valanciunas finished with 17 points for Memphis, who slumped to a 2-6 record to start the season.

A scoring masterclass from Damian Lillard helped the Portland Trail Blazers to an 18-point victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Lillard finished with 39 points and seven assists in the 135-117 victory.

Luka Doncic fell one rebound short of a triple-double in the Dallas Mavericks' 124-117 overtime defeat of the Denver Nuggets.

He posted 38 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds, while Nuggets centre Nikola Jokic also scored 38 points and 11 boards.

And a 28-point haul from Joe Harris lifted the Brooklyn Nets, who were without star trio Spencer Dinwiddie, Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving, to a 122-109 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.
