Lowry also had nine rebounds and seven assists, while DeMar DeRozan scored 31 points in another big game in his hometown. The Atlantic Division-leading Raptors' two scoring stars got them back in winning form on the fifth stop of their six-game road trip.

The Bulls, though, need the pick to fall between 11 and 30 come June to ensure they get a first-rounder. If the pick lands from 1 to 10, Philadelphia has the right to swap first-rounders with Sacramento as part of the July 2015 Nik Stauskas trade, leaving Chicago with the Kings' 2017 second-rounder.

"He played well, didn't he play well?" D'Antoni said. "He was terrific tonight. Really, really good on both ends of the floor and his energy. He was good."

San Antonio’s slow starts remain one of its only constants 33 games into the season, but the Spurs have managed to win 9 of 15 outings in which they’ve trailed by 10 points or more.

''We never got a chance to sit down with him,'' coach Tom Thibodeau said.

Adding all those numbers up should help explain why there has been precious little chatter so far this season about coaches on the proverbial hot seat. That's a lot of new (or relatively new) faces in many, many places.

* -- The 2016-17 salaries of Memphis' Carter ($2 million to a full $4.26 million) and Green ($980,431) become fully guaranteed if neither player is waived by Sunday (Jan. 1).

Portland: Tim Quarterman

Young's latest burst from long range gave him 36 3-pointers in the last eight games - the most in an eight-game stretch in Lakers franchise history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Here's what our experts are saying about the big questions for the week ahead:

Perhaps this will be that thoroughly abnormal NBA season ‎in which all 30 coaches last 82 games. Hoiberg, after all, is one of those four Year 2 coaches.

But the 1-6 funk that began with the Timberwolves collapse left the Bulls, as of Monday morning, having been outscored by 5.8 points per game in December. That represented the league's largest drop in average scoring margin from month to month at minus-11.4, worse than the November-to-December slumping suffered by the Atlanta Hawks (minus-10.2 PPG) and the Los Angeles Lakers (minus-7.6 PPG).


Popovich took a relatively calm approach early on despite his team falling behind by as many as 12 in the first quarter. Popovich wanted “to just sit there and let them figure it out,” adding that “tonight, I wanted them to see what was going on for themselves.”

“It was the same game we played two days ago,” Ginobili said. “We started slow, not enough aggressiveness, and we didn’t go get the game. And then in the third quarter, we see the score, we’re down, and then we go and get it. It had nothing to do with me. It was just the team. In the third quarter, we see ourselves in trouble, and we bring it. We’ve got to find a way to do it for 48 [minutes]. There will be some games at home where it’s going to get tougher soon, and some teams are not going to let us get back in the game. I don’t think it was about me or Jon[athon Simmons] or anybody. As a group, we brought [it] in the second half. It’s exactly what happened in the last game. Bring the juice. That’s our new word now. Be energetic, because it was a matter of that today. Today was about going to get the game, not just waiting.”

''I think the effort is there,'' Young said. ''We're showing it. We have to limit the six-minute breakdowns we go through.''

"That's what he does," Harden said of Harrell. "A six-point game or a 30-point game, he brings the same energy, the same toughness, the same pace that we need and that's what gets him going."

The Timberwolves had a workout scheduled with free agent forward Donatas Motiejunas as they considered adding him to help them bolster a bench that has struggled mightily this season. After working out with New Orleans, Motiejunas took a flight to Minneapolis on Sunday. But by the time he got off the plane, he had an offer from the Pelicans on the table and canceled his workout with the Timberwolves.
