OKLAHOMA CITY -- Thunder guard Russell Westbrook took exception to questions Sunday about his perceived lack of passing following the Thunder's 101-99 loss to the Pelicans.

"It's one game, man. I'm not going to keep answering questions about me not passing when we lose," Westbrook said. "When we won eight in a row, nobody said nothing about me not passing. So I don't want to hear it now."

Westbrook finished with 29 points on 10 of 27 shooting with eight assists. But in the final 3:45 in which the Thunder went scoreless, he went 0 of 6 with a turnover, which included a contested 3 at the buzzer for the win.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Kevin Durant didn't play for the Thunder on Sunday, but it seemed like he showed up in a different uniform.

Anthony Davis put in a Durant-like effort, scoring 38 efficient points to lead the New Orleans Pelicans to a 101-99 victory over Oklahoma City.

It was the third-highest point total of Davis' career, and like Durant, his points piled up quickly and seemed effortless. He made 16 of 22 shots and had 12 rebounds while doing a little bit of everything. Like Durant, he scored inside and outside, put the ball on the floor and showed incredible grace for a nearly 7-foot player.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Indiana Pacers walked into Target Center with heavy legs Sunday night, playing the second game of a tough back-to-back that started in Denver the night before.

The young Minnesota Timberwolves were the ones who really looked tired to start, and the Pacers took advantage of open shot after open shot to build a big lead and hold on for the win.

C.J. Miles scored 28 points and David West bulled his way to the basket for two big points with 34 seconds to play to help the Pacers to a 100-96 victory over the Timberwolves on Sunday night.

WASHINGTON -- Phoenix Suns coach Jeff Hornacek got the killer instinct he was looking for.

The Suns scored nine straight points late in the game to beat Washington 104-92 on Sunday night, completing a perfect three-game trip and ending the Wizards' winning streak at six games.

"Maybe this is the game that helps us to get going because it was a full all-player, all-team effort," Hornacek said. "This is the way we need to play."

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The limited success the Philadelphia 76ers have experienced this season has all been on the road.

That continues to be the case.

Michael Carter-Williams scored 21 points as the Sixers opened a seven-game road trip with a 96-88 victory over the Orlando Magic on Sunday night.

MIAMI -- Finding out shortly before the game that Dwyane Wade would be sitting out with a bruised right knee could have sent the reeling Miami Heat into an even bigger tailspin.

Instead, it proved inspiring.

And the team's five-game home slide is over.

NEW YORK -- The Brooklyn Nets had an easy time in their first game this season without Deron Williams -- until the last few seconds.

Mason Plumlee scored 10 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and Brooklyn held off a late rally for a 110-105 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday.

After Mirza Teletovic's layup with 5:31 remaining gave the Nets a seemingly comfortable 98-83 lead, the Pistons pulled to 106-105 on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's 3-pointer with 9 seconds left.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The Sacramento Kings finally found the right remedy to end a monthlong bout of bad news: a healthy DeMarcus Cousins and a struggling Kobe Bryant.

Cousins had 29 points and 14 rebounds in his second start since returning from a serious illness, and the Kings snapped a five-game losing streak with a 108-101 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

"It seems like forever since we had a win," Cousins said. "So it feels good to get a win."

Irving was selected by USA Basketball's board of directors.
