Dallas Mavericks 91, Chicago Bulls 75 — Findlay Prep product Brandon Ashley scored 21 points to lead the Mavericks. Dennis Smith Jr. and Yogi Ferrell each scored 14. Six players reached double figures for the Bulls, with Lauri Markkanen tossing in a team-high 14.

Miami Heat 75, San Antonio Spurs 74 — London Perrantes buried a 15-footer with four seconds left to lift the Heat past the Spurs. Bam Adebayo led the Heat with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Fellow big man Zach Auguste added 17 points and nine rebounds. Bryn Forbes paced San Antonio with 18 points.

Boston Celtics 86, Los Angeles Lakers 81 — Jayson Tatum won an entertaining duel between Nos. 2 and 3 draft picks, and his Celtics beat their heated rival. Tatum, the No. 3 pick, finished with 27 points and 11 rebounds. Lonzo Ball, taken No. 2 overall by the Lakers, registered a triple-double with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

Philadelphia 76ers 95, Golden State Warriors 93 — Larry Drew II made a jumper with 7.6 seconds left to give the Sixers the victory. The game was marred for Philadelphia, however, when No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz injured his left ankle in the third quarter. Patrick McCaw, a former UNLV standout, scored 25 points for the Warriors, but missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer.

Cleveland Cavaliers 94, Houston Rockets 90 — Brandon Paul made a tiebreaking 3-pointer in overtime to lift the Cleveland Cavaliers. Guard Kay Felder led Cleveland with 16 points. Houston wing Troy Williams had a game-high 21 points.

Saturday’s attendance

17,500 for both venues, a record for one session. Total through two days: 31,795.

Star of the day

Tatum rose to the occasion with a double-double in the Celtics’ victory over the Lakers before a highly partisan Los Angeles crowd. Of his 27 points, Tatum scored 21 in the second half. He also showed a flair for the dramatic, pointing to boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. after banking in a 30-footer at the third-quarter buzzer.

Local spotlight

McCaw scored 25 points in the Warriors’ loss to the 76ers. His 3-point shot near the buzzer, which would have won the game, just missed going in.


“Just winning those conference tournaments and going to the NCAA (Tournament). You can’t replace those. We had some special teams and a lot of special players that went on to play for a long time.”

— Memphis Grizzlies summer league coach Glynn Cyprien, a former UNLV assistant, on his favorite moment with the Rebels, for whom he coached from 1995 to 2000.

On the scene

Multi-platinum rapper J. Cole sat courtside to watch the Mavericks play the Bulls at the Thomas & Mack Center. He playing a concert later that night at the MGM Grand Garden. New Houston teammates James Harden and Chris Paul watched the Rockets play the Cavaliers at Cox Pavilion.
