(TSX / STATS) -- ATLANTA -- Boston forward Jaylen Brown was able to put aside his personal heartbreak for another night and helped the Celtics extend their winning streak to 15 games.

It has been a rough week for the Atlanta-area native. He learned Wednesday night that his childhood best friend had died and responded with 22 points in a win over Golden State.

Brown flew home on Friday to be with his family and came out Saturday to score a career-high 27 points and lead the Celtics to a 110-99 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

Spurs storm back from 23 down, top OKC

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN ANTONIO -- In a game that shouldn't have gone down to the final minute, San Antonio's 104-101 victory over Oklahoma City on Friday was decided by inches.

The slight edge: a crucial shot and the height of the defender that the Spurs used to make difficult an inbounds pass in the final seconds that denied the Thunder a quality opportunity on their last-gasp possession.


Davis concussed as Nuggets rout Pelicans

(TSX / STATS) -- DENVER -- New Orleans withstood a hot start by Denver, but it couldn't overcome a scorching second half without its star forward.

Pacers come from 22 down to beat Pistons

(TSX / STATS) -- INDIANAPOLIS -- Midway through the third quarter, the Indiana Pacers were seemingly buried in a 22-point hole to Detroit.

"We didn't give in, games like that it's easy to give in," Pacers guard Darren Collison said. "Everybody kept believing. I thought our bench did a great job of keeping us in the game. It was a good effort by everybody."
