MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The streak is over for the Golden State Warriors.

Their NBA-record start ended after 24 wins when they lost 108-95 to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.

Golden State's 28-game winning streak, counting the final four games of last season, also came to a halt. The NBA's longest winning streak is 33 by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1971-72 -- and it was also snapped by Milwaukee.

Greg Monroe scored 28 points for the Bucks, who got the all-around effort needed to beat the defending NBA champions.

It also helped that the Warriors (24-1), perhaps fighting fatigue after needing two overtimes to win at Boston on Friday, were cold from 3-point range. They usually make 13 a night, but were just 6 of 26 from behind the arc in the final game of a seven-game road trip.


ATLANTA (AP) -- Kawhi Leonard scored 22 points, and San Antonio allowed only 25 first-half points in the strongest defensive effort by any NBA team this season.

The Spurs led 47-25 at halftime. The Hawks' total -- 13 points in the first quarter, 12 in the second -- was the lowest for any NBA team in any half this season, according to STATS. The previous low was Houston's 26 second-half points on Nov. 1 at Miami.

Manu Ginobili had 17 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 13 for San Antonio, which has won six of seven.

Paul Millsap led Atlanta with 22 points, including 17 in the third quarter. No other Hawks player scored in double figures.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick each scored 21 points, and the Clippers ended a seven-game, two-state road losing streak against the Nets.

Chris Paul had 15 points and 14 assists for the Clippers, who hadn't beaten the Nets on the road since Dec. 11, 2007, back when the Nets played in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Los Angeles never beat them during the Nets' brief stay in Newark and had been 0-3 in Brooklyn.

Thaddeus Young scored 18 points and Jarrett Jack had 16 points and 11 assists for the Nets, who were trying for their first three-game winning streak of the season.


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Carmelo Anthony tied a season high with 37 points, helping the Knicks rally for the road win.

Anthony, who scored 20 points in the first half, shot 13 of 21 from the field as New York ended a four-game losing streak. Anthony finished the game by hitting six free throws during the final 30 seconds.

Former Blazers Robin Lopez and Arron Afflalo, returning to Portland for the first time since leaving the team in free agency last summer, were among six Knicks in double figures. Afflalo scored 15 points, while Lopez had 14 points and seven rebounds.

Damian Lillard led Portland with 29 points. C.J. McCollum scored 22 points, and Allen Crabbe had 15.


HOUSTON (AP) -- James Harden scored 30 points, leading the Rockets to the runaway win.

A 3-pointer by Nick Young with about seven minutes left got the Lakers within 11, but a 13-2 run by Houston pushed the lead to 115-93. Donatas Motiejunas, Harden and Patrick Beverley each made a 3-pointer to cap the key stretch.

Motiejunas had 11 points in his best game since returning from back surgery.

Kobe Bryant had 25 points, seven rebounds and six assists for the Lakers, who have lost six in a row and 13 of 14.


CHICAGO (AP) -- Pau Gasol had 18 points for Chicago, and Aaron Brooks scored 15 of his 17 in the fourth quarter.

Jimmy Butler added 15 points for the Bulls, who trailed for most of the game.

Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans each scored 22 points for the Pelicans, who fell to 1-11 on the road. Eric Gordon added 14.

Davis tied it at 94 with a three-point play with 1:47 remaining, and Brooks' layup gave the Bulls a 96-94 lead with 40 seconds to play.


AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Reggie Jackson had 21 points and nine assists, leading Detroit to the win.

Ersan Ilyasova added 20 points, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope finished with 18 points, a career-high eight assists and seven rebounds. Six Pistons scored in double figures, and Andre Drummond had eight points and 11 rebounds.

George Hill led the Pacers with 14 points. Paul George finished with 13 on 4-of-16 shooting, missing all four of his 3-point attempts.

Detroit has won six of eight, including five in a row at home, while the Pacers lost for the fourth time in five games.


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Avery Bradley scored 23 points, Isaiah Thomas added 21 points and 13 assists, and Boston snapped Charlotte's four-game winning streak.

Jae Crowder added 16 points and seven rebounds for the Celtics (14-10), who have won seven of their last 10 games. Boston bounced back after a heartbreaking double-overtime loss on Friday night to Stephen Curry and NBA-leading Golden State.

The Hornets had a chance to tie the game late but Nicolas Batum's 30-foot jumper off a side inbounds play with 6.6 seconds remaining missed everything. Evan Turner put away the game with a layup.

Batum led the Hornets with 21 points and eight rebounds, and Kemba Walker had 16 points.


DALLAS (AP) -- Otto Porter scored a career-high 28 points, John Wall had 26 points and 16 assists, and Washington ended an 11-game losing streak against Dallas.

Washington had not beaten Dallas since Oct. 27, 2009. The Wizards were playing their second straight game without Bradley Beal, who is expected to miss at least two weeks with a right leg injury.

Porter more than picked up the slack, scoring 17 points during Washington's 39-point third quarter as the Wizards built a 21-point lead.

Wesley Matthews led the Mavericks with 28 points, including six 3-pointers.
