Miles made eight 3s in the first half, when the Cavs opened a 26-point lead that allowed them to coast to a rare easy win. He notched his ninth with 9:53 left and drained No. 10 with 9:17 remaining. He went 10 of 14 from outside the arc.

Cleveland’s second victory in 10 games came hours after the club acquired forward Luol Deng from Chicago in a trade for center Andrew Bynum and future draft picks. Deng wasn’t in uniform, but Cavs All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving returned after missing three games with a bruised left knee and finished with 16 points.

Sixers rookie Michael Carter-Williams scored a season-high 33.

KINGS 123, TRAIL BLAZERS 119

SACRAMENTO, Calif. • DeMarcus Cousins had 35 points and 13 rebounds, Rudy Gay scored 32 points and the Kings held off a furious rally to beat the Trail Blazers.

Cousins and Gay provided the spark for a 32-12 run at the end of the third and beginning of the fourth quarters that put Sacramento ahead by 19 points. Gay fouled out with 4:12 remaining, and the Blazers nearly rallied back.

Damian Lillard scored 26 of his 41 points in the final period to pull Portland within two in the final minute. But the Kings made just enough free throws to hold off the Blazers, who have lost four of their last six games.

LaMarcus Aldridge added 24 points and eight rebounds, and Nicolas Batum finished with 11 points, 11 rebounds and five assists while playing with a fractured left middle finger in Portland’s latest loss.

WARRIORS 101, BUCKS 80

MILWAUKEE • David Lee had 22 points and 18 rebounds to lead Golden State to its 10th straight win.

Lee was 10 of 12 from the field for the Warriors, who have their longest winning streak since their NBA-title season in 1975. Stephen Curry contributed 15 points for the Warriors despite connecting on just 5 of 18 shots. Klay Thompson also scored 15 points.

The Warriors, playing their sixth game of a seven-city trip, led by just two at the half against the Bucks, who have the NBA’s worst record.

Golden State broke open the game with a 23-7 run to start the third quarter, highlighted by a step-back 3-pointer from the corner by Curry.

Ersan Ilyasova had 20 points and Brandon Knight 18 for the Bucks.

SPURS 110, GRIZZLIES 108, OT

MEMPHIS, Tenn. • Manu Ginobili scored on a driving layup with 1.8 seconds left in overtime, lifting San Antonio to the road win.
