Chris Paul spoils Jason Kidd's Dallas debut as Hornets beat Mavericks

Chris Paul had 31 points, 11 assist and a career-high nine steals, spoiling Jason Kidd's debut with Dallas and lifting the New Orleans Hornets over the Mavericks 104-93 in the NBA on Wednesday.
Kidd, acquired on Tuesday from New Jersey, looked out of sorts at times, committing six turnovers. He finished with eight points and five assists.
Meanwhile, Paul's dazzling performance on both ends of the floor had the enraptured crowd on its feet, raining down chants of "M-V-P!" for their own All-Star point guard while a banner offering similar sentiments flapped from the upper deck.
Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 31 points.
Cavaliers 106, Pacers 97
At Indianapolis, LeBron James had his second consecutive triple-double, with 31 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists for the Cleveland.
It was James' sixth triple-double of the season and the 16th of his career, and it helped the Cavaliers end a two-game losing streak. Larry Hughes added 19 points and Zydrunas Ilgauskas had 14 points and 17 rebounds.
Danny Granger scored 30 points for Indiana, which lost its sixth straight to Cleveland.
76ers 124, Knicks 84
At Philadelphia, the home team rarely has had a win so easy, scoring 100 points through three quarters and crushing New York.
New York had turnovers on almost every possession in some stretches, took ugly shots and trailed by 46 points in the third quarter.
Willie Green scored 21 points, Thaddeus Young had a career-high 20 and Andre Iguodala added 19 for the Sixers, who won their sixth straight at home.
Raptors 127, Magic 110
At Toronto, Chris Bosh had 40 points _ going 14-for-16 from the field and 11-for-11 from the foul line _ and Jose Calderon had 19 points and 13 assists for Toronto's win over Orlando.
Carlos Delfino came off the bench to score 23 for Toronto, including five 3-pointers, and Jamario Moon had 17 points and 11 rebounds.
Dwight Howard led Orlando with 37 points and 15 rebounds.
Bucks 103, Pistons 98
At Milwaukee, Michael Redd scored 27 points and Andrew Bogut continued his tear with 14 points and 14 rebounds as the Milwaukee snapped a season-high, four-game losing streak.
Milwaukee also snapped a streak of four straight setbacks to Detroit, including a pair of embarrassing losses this season by an average of 35.5 points.
Rasheed Wallace, who finished with 21 points on 5-of-10 shooting from 3-point range, hit four 3s in the final 2:20 to nearly bring the Pistons back from 21 down in the second half, but Milwaukee saved itself by hitting 10 of 12 free throws in the span.
Nets 110, Bulls 102, OT
At East Rutherford, New Jersey, Marcus Williams, in his first game as Jason Kidd's temporary replacement at point guard, combined with Richard Jefferson for New Jersey's first 10 points of overtime.
Vince Carter led the Nets with a season-high 33 points, though appeared to be grabbing at his hamstring as the game ended. Williams scored a season-best 25 points and Jefferson finished with 24 points. Both players had six points in overtime.
Joe Smith scored 17 points for Chicago, which lost a 13th straight road game at New Jersey.
