NBA games Tuesday, scores, highlights: Masked Kyrie leads Celtics to 13th straight
We have all the scores, updates and highlights from Tuesday night
It was a slow night in the NBA, as there were only three games on Tuesday's slate. The Celtics won their 13th straight game, the Raptors stunned the Rockets in Houston and the Spurs took care of business in Dallas.
Here are all the scores and highlights from the night.
NBA scores for Tuesday, Nov. 14
- Boston Celtics 109, Brooklyn Nets 102 (box score)
- Toronto Raptors 129, Houston Rockets 113 (box score)
- San Antonio Spurs 97, Dallas Mavericks 91 (box score)
Mask doesn't stop Kyrie
Kyrie Irving played only two minutes during the Celtics' win over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday due to a minor facial fracture he suffered after being inadvertently elbowed by teammate Aron Baynes. The injury also caused him to miss Sunday's one-point win against the Raptors. Good news for Celtics fans -- Irving played on Tuesday (with a protective mask) and led the Celtics to their 13th straight win with a game-high 25 points. The mask was definitely bothering Irving throughout the night, but not on plays like this.
Jaylen auditions for the dunk contest
The NBA dunk contest committee might want to keep this one in mind. Jaylen Brown got the steal and then broke out a full windmill to finish the wide open break.
Junior gets up
When Dennis Smith Jr. is coming down the lane, you should probably get out of the way. The Spurs certainly did this time around.
Look out below
Raptors rookie OG Anunoby put an exclamation mark on the team's big road win over the Rockets with this thunderous slam.
Not tonight, Wesley
Watch out for those long arms of Rudy Gay. Mavericks guard Wesley Matthews thought he had a layup, but Gay came from behind to pin the shot off the backboard.
