NBA games Sunday, scores, highlights, updates: Kyrie-less Celtics win 12th in a row – CBSSports.com

After an extremely busy Saturday night, the NBA schedule slowed down Sunday, with just four games on the docket.

The Boston Celtics  won their 12th in a row as they welcomed the Toronto Raptors. They did so without Kyrie Irving, however, who suffered a facial fracture Friday night and did not play. 

There was also an intriguing matchup between the Houston Rockets and the new-look Indiana Pacers, but James Harden took care of that one easily.

Closing out the night, the struggling Oklahoma City Thunder took care of the lowly Dallas Mavericks.

Stay tuned right here for all of Sunday’s news, notes, scores, and highlights.

NBA Games for Sunday, Nov. 12 No Irving? No problem

The Celtics didn’t have Kyrie Irving for their victory over the Raptors on Sunday night, but that didn’t stop them from extending their winning streak to 12. Al Horford returned from concussion protocol to give Boston a defensive boost and score 21 points on 8-for-9 shooting. This Boston team is great. 

Jazz lose Gobert for at least four weeks

The Utah Jazz announced that an MRI revealed that Rudy Gobert has suffered a bone bruise in his knee, and will be re-evaluated in four weeks. Gobert was injured Friday night when Dion Waiters crashed into his knee during a scramble for a loose ball. Gobert called it a “dirty play.”

Knicks waive Kuzminskas 

With Joakim Noah set to return on Monday, the Knicks needed to clear a roster spot, and they did so by waiving second-year Lithuanian forward Mindaugas Kuzminskas. According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, multiple teams are expected to have interest in Kuzminskas.

If Kuzminskas clears waivers, Lakers, Bulls, Hawks expected to have interest, per source.
