DALLAS — Danny Green didn’t miss a shot in scoring 22 points, Tim Duncan had 21 points and 13 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs took advantage of the Dallas Mavericks’ weakened frontcourt for a 116-109 victory on Thursday.

Mavericks centers Samuel Dalembert and Brandan Wright were fighting undisclosed illnesses and 6-foot-7 DeJuan Blair spent most of the night guarding the 6-11 Duncan, who recorded his 10th double-double this season and 768th of his career.

A 12-0 Mavericks run cut the Spurs’ lead to 100-97 with 3:55 to play, but Duncan then scored six consecutive points and passed to Green for a 3-pointer and a 110-103 advantage.

Green was 7-for-7 from the field, including 5-for-5 from 3-point range. Tony Parker added 23 points.

Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 25 points and Monta Ellis scored 23, including nine during the 12-0 run. Blair had 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Trail Blazers 116, Clippers 112: At Portland, Ore., LaMarcus Aldridge had 32 points and 10 rebounds and Portland held on for an overtime victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Blazers have won seven of their last eight games and they’ve dropped just two games at home this season.

But the Clippers, playing the second of a back-to-back, mounted a challenge after trailing by as many as 11 points early in the second half. Blake Griffin had 35 points and 11 rebounds, while Chris Paul finished with 34 points and 16 assists.

Portland clung to a 114-112 lead with 13.4 seconds left and padded it with Wesley Matthews’ foul shots. Paul missed a 3-point attempt as time ran out.

Rockets 100, Grizzlies 92: At Houston, James Harden scored 11 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter to help Houston rally past Memphis.

Harden struggled from the field, going 2-for-9, but was 22-of-25 from the free throw line. He made 9-of-11 foul shots in the final quarter.

Jeremy Lin had 14 of his 18 points in the fourth as Houston won for the third time in four games. The Rockets were coming off an impressive 111-98 victory at San Antonio on Christmas.

Houston center Dwight Howard battled foul trouble for most of the night and was held to two points and six rebounds.

Hawks 127, Cavaliers 125: At Cleveland, Jeff Teague scored a career-high 34 points, including a 20-foot jumper at the buzzer in the second overtime, to give Atlanta a win over Cleveland.

Teague’s fallaway jumper over Tristan Thompson bounced off the rim five times before falling through the net to give Atlanta the victory. Teague fell to the floor after shooting the ball and was mobbed by his teammates.

Teague’s 3-pointer with 4.9 seconds left tied the game at 108-108 in the first overtime.

Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 40 points, including 12 in the second OT.

Hawks center Al Horford, who scored two baskets late in regulation to tie the game, suffered an apparent shoulder injury in the first OT and didn’t return.
