Mills can’t prevent Celtics’ rout of Spurs, Hayward injured for Boston


It was their first at San Antonio since 2011 and just their second victory over the Spurs (5-4) in their past 16 meetings.

Spurs big man LaMarcus Aldridge was held to three points, taking just four shots from the field in 26 minutes.

Hayward fractured his left hand when he ran into Aldridge with less than two minutes left before half-time.

Aldridge was assessed an offensive foul and Hayward quickly exited to the locker room and did not return to the game, before an X-ray confirmed the diagnosis.

In Chicago, James Harden scored 42 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished nine assists as the visiting Houston Rockets pulled away for a 117-94 win over the Bulls.

Russell Westbrook added 26 points on 10-for-20 shooting for Houston who improved to 6-3 this season while the Bulls are 3-7.

Luka Doncic missed his fifth triple-double of the season by two assists but he did enough for Dallas Mavericks in a 138-122 victory over Memphis Grizzlies.

The second-year standout accumulated 24 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists in just 29 minutes on the second night of a back-to-back.

Danilo Gallinari scored 19 points and Dennis Schroder added 18 in Oklahoma City’s 114-108 defeat of Golden State, the second time the Thunder beat the Warriors at home in a span of 13 days.

D’Angelo Russell scored 30 points and Alec Burks added 23 as the Warriors (2-8) lost their third consecutive game.

Brandon Ingram had 25 points and nine rebounds as New Orleans Pelicans registered just their second win of the campaign, 115-110 over Charlotte Hornets (4-5).
