Brook Lopez scored a season-high 31 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and the Brooklyn Nets snapped the Oklahoma City Thunder's seven-game winning streak with a 116-106 victory Sunday night.

Kevin Durant had 32 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, but Oklahoma City never led in the game that was delayed four hours by the blizzard that dumped more than 2 feet of snow on New York on Saturday.

Russell Westbrook finished with 27 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists as the Thunder lost for just the fifth time in 27 games.

Taking advantage of a Thunder team missing starting center Steven Adams, Lopez shot 11 for 19 from the field in bouncing back from one of his worst performances of the season. He had been limited to just eight points Friday in a loss to Utah.

at Houston 115, Dallas 104: James Harden had 23 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists, Trevor Ariza scored a season-high 29 and the Rockets rallied for a win over the Mavericks. The Rockets trailed by one entering the fourth quarter, but they used 14-4 run, highlighted by consecutive three-pointers by Ariza, Jason Terry and Josh Smith, to take a 98-89 lead with about nine minutes left.

Boston 112, at Philadelphia 92: Jae Crowder and Isaiah Thomas scored 20 points each and the Celtics cruised to a victory over the 76ers. The game originally was scheduled for Saturday but was postponed because of Winter Storm Jonas.

at Toronto 112, Clippers 94
