One of the worst in the Western Conference beat the NBA team with the best record as the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Golden State Warriors 115-105, despite playing without guard and leading scorer Kobe Bryant.
The Lakers, who trail only the Minnesota Timberwolves for mediocrity in the West, snapped a three-game losing streak and defeated the Warriors for the first time in five meetings.
Bryant missed the game due to fatigue.
Elsewhere, in their first meeting since headlining one of the NBA’s highest-profile off-season trades, Andrew Wiggins outshone Kevin Love by scoring 27 points but Cleveland took the spoils, pulling away late in the third quarter to rout Minnesota 125-104.
Guard Derrick Rose scored eight of his game-high 25 points over the final three-and-a-half minutes as the Bulls beat Wizards 99-91.
